Track Name: the work
if we measured
our failures in feathers
we could be birds
flying into mirrors
soaring between bodies
if we could change would we be able to wish these feelings away
I'm pressed to think of a time in which we could
soar between bodies

the labour we sell is how we define ourselves

pigeons flocking to the feed become to wide to fly
hanging lids over heavy eyes
scurrying to the next seed
half drunk and full of spite like any good business transactions
both parties leave unsatisfied

the labour we sell is how we define ourselves
Track Name: the drain
tragically I was playing unaware
I knew there were others but I didn't care
for a moment it felt like it was you and me and the end of the world
running from the rain in little Portugal

Hanging around, is draining me out

I had a good buzz and stayed up long enough to lose it
I liked you better when you promised death
now I know we'll live through it
I'm making better decisions

Hanging around, is draining me out
Track Name: the fade
your pale blue wash of opinions has
left a resounding impression
now I'm a spectator in a display of best intentions
I'm thinking that I should be leaving

every glass case filled with past interactions could
give way with any thought of retraction
smashed with a maybe
or a brick of doubt

maybe chanel and chambray will remain
enveloping the frame of a dancer
a reminder sometimes we don't get to have answers
and that's gotta be okay
or maybe that will fade

every glass case filled with past interactions could
give way with any thought of retraction
smashed with a maybe
or a brick of doubt

maybe that will fade
Track Name: clean living
maybe someday you'll be
cleaning your kitchen
come across old coupons
for fast food restaurants
and not think of the steps it took to get
a balance in clean living

something was supposed to happen

I've been pressing flowers between
notebooks with writings
of bad palm readings you took to mean
you're not where you should be
in them retains the scent that you
should've ordered another with me

something was supposed to happen.
