Track Name: timezoned
you don’t like the lies the mirror whispers in your ear
but i know better i see you for who you are
strip away that macho bullshit you know i can see right through it
there’s a secret sweetness in your heart

I’d fly halfway round the world
if you said you need me to

there’s no rush, we’re in no hurry
i’ll wait with you for the sun
in the morning when you miss me
don’t forget it’s just for fun
kiss me like this is the last time
memorize the way I sleep
don’t be afraid to give away
what you thought you had to keep


Let me into your mind, darling you’ll be just fine
Ignore what you think you must do
If we just work out the kink in the way that you think
Then the world will be open to you

Trust me I’ve been there before
I will not lead you astray

there’s no rush, we’re in no hurry
i’ll wait with you for the sun
in the morning when you miss me
don’t forget it’s just for fun
kiss me like this is the last time
memorize the way I sleep
don’t be afraid to give away
what you thought you had to keep

don’t be afraid to give away
what you thought you had to keep
Track Name: drunk on a greyhound
this isn’t how i thought that it would end
the star aren’t going out but they say they miss their friend
pick apart the words you left for me
i nearly inked them into my skin
but if we die we can be born again

take what you're given
hold out your hand
we will do better this time
we will love things without breaking them
without breaking them

little bird climb out of the nest
I live where the sun sets, turn your eyes west
say that you know who love you best
but it wasn’t me
and it could never be
we all have to learn to love our self

take what you're given
hold out your hand
we will do better this time
we will love things without breaking them
without breaking them

My god you are so lovely
please don’t stop loving me
My god you are so lovely
please don’t stop loving me

take what you're given
hold out your hand
we will do better this time
we will love things without breaking them
without breaking them
Track Name: hello yes i love you
i am climbing through the kitchen window
i left me keys on her bed again
and i’d like to remain horizontal
until this evening come to an end
but it seems unlikely
that that will happen
so i’ll muster up the energy
to bathe myself instead

No I don’t mind being alone
that’s the only time i feel at home
No I don’t mind being alone
Cos I think I do better on my own

go on, roll another joint now
i’ll watch the way her fingers move
She are so beautiful in my underwear
on a thursday afternoon
i am the sun and
she are my lovely moon
together we shine so brightly
it illuminates my room

No I don’t mind being with you
that’s the only i ever want to do
No I don’t mind being with you
Cos I think you feel the same way too

I feel so heavy-handed
could you hold onto one for me
zip our fingers tight together
it feels just like being free
can i take your name
i wanna marry you
and i will walk down the aisle
and you’ll cry when i say i do

No I don’t mind forever
that's the only time that i’ve got
No I don’t mind forever
because i love you a lot, a lot, a lot
Track Name: little jar of rosé
you fell for girl with an expiration date
while i sat off to the side cause you throughout i would wait
but it took you too long, you’ve woken up to find i’m gone

I remember the first day, smoking in the woods after work
I tried not to get too close, the end was bound to hurt
We never learn from our mistakes, until it’s already too late

And I misunderstood because I was too far gone
To pay attention to the truth
But I hope you can find some way to forgive me
Because I’m trying to do the same for you


And I will change your name is in my cell phone again
and we will drag out bodies back into bing just friends
you won’t apologize for being gone
i won’t apologize for being wrong

We’ll pretend the last 8 months never happened
because we cannot turn back time
and one day i’ll tell the truth about how i’m doing
but for now, i’ll say i’m fine
i feel safer when i lie

And I misunderstood because I was too far gone
To pay attention to the truth
But I hope you can find some way to forgive me
Because I’m trying to do the same for you

And the sun will burn off the haze, and we will
get back to brighter days, and I will
Love you in all the right ways, and you will
Say that you feel the same, you feel the same (x2)


And I misunderstood because I was too far gone
To pay attention to the truth
But I hope you can find some way to forgive me
Because I’m trying to do the same for you
Track Name: drug screen
i still love myself i am my own best friend
but i cannot believe some of the shit that i've done
should have given a fuck when i still had the chance
but i was busy having fun

i keep breaking out of the boxes i put myself into to keep myself safe
and as the wood is splintering i find myself thinking maybe this wasn't a mistake

the saboteur thought this phase was over
they cannot go under they must go through
yeah this shit was supposed to go away on it’s own
because i really wanted it to

Let me lie to you say i’ll clean my room
you’ll find me on the floor writing this song
these priorities are a little fucked up
but the instincts are never wrong

i swear more now than i ever did as a kid
more revealing than surprising to tell the truth
my mom tried to protect she tried not to infect
but i still caught the sad as a youth

i keep breaking out of the boxes i put myself into to keep myself safe
and as the wood is splintering i find myself thinking maybe this wasn't a mistake

the saboteur thought this phase was over
they cannot go under they must go through
yeah this shit was supposed to go away on it’s own
because i really wanted it to

Let me lie to you say i’ll clean my room
you’ll find me on the floor writing this song
these priorities are a little fucked up
but the instincts are never wrong (x2)
