Track Name: Disaster Artists
we're barreling forward
we push on through no matter the wreckage
all bulldozer, no oversight
we're racking up collateral damage
you have to go with your gut
you can't bleed unless you're cut
no sense in taking it slower
you can't leave until it's over
too dumb
too slow
you're tired
i know
and you will know us by the trail
of liquor bottles and unopened mail
the crash only comes when we're older
leave our apologies on a black box recorder
you have to go with your gut
you can't bleed unless you're cut
too dumb
too slow
you're tired
i know
Track Name: Woke Up Like This
last night i had my usual dream
i saw my father up in heaven looking down at me
he told me "i know you think you'll be here soon,
but there so many more years for you to suffer through."
start again 6am stagger wake
crushed by the heavy weight of countless possibilities
surviving this doesn't amount to much
just getting through today takes a thousand little cuts
red wine and anxiety meds
anything to keep me safely
out of my head, out of my flesh
anything
last night i had a brand new dream
i'm naked in a bare room while all my loved ones shout at me
fed up, black cloud to chase away
it might be time to give up on waiting for a better day
red wine and anxiety meds
anything to keep me safely
out of my head, out of my flesh
anything
Track Name: Straight Raptured
if there's one thing i know,
it's how to let small things completely destroy me
it's more than the sum of its parts
it's a weight around my ankles, it's always feeling stuck
you made it, you made it, you made it
and i hate it, i hate it, i hate it
you don't see that ghost anymore
but i'm still here in pictures spread out on the floor
you're a weed growing tall and green
through the cracks in my concrete
I know you don't feel the sting anymore, but i do
it's more than the years
it's more than the arguments, more than the fear
it's a time that you've worked to forget
it's burnt up and blown out, it's loss and regret
you made it, you made it, you made it,
and i hate it, the gap you created
you won't see my ghost anymore
threw out all the pictures swept up off the floor
i know you don't feel the sting anymore
