Track Name: Spring Sickness
you laugh at me like sickness in the spring
you yell at me like the birds outside my window
maybe they're just glad the sun rose again, the sun came again
maybe they're just tired, or i stayed up too late

i can't sleep anymore
not sure what i'm here for
i don't know anymore
won't you tell me why i'm here

you laugh at me and say i'll never know
create your own, but i'm better with directions
i could fold an airplane out of my diploma or the notes he left me
i could write a novel out of threads from my gown, or the sheets on my bed

cause i can't sleep anymore
not sure what i'm here for
i don't know anymore
won't you tell me why

i can't sleep anymore
not sure what i'm here for
i don't know anymore
won't you tell me why i'm here

you laugh at me, glad my jokes are landing
ill thank the chuck running through your veins
i could write you letters but it won't be the same it won't be the same
then waking next to you to discuss the night before, nights ill never have again

won't you tell me why i'm here?
Track Name: Endless Bummer
life will pass, pass you by
so sleep with me tonight
i burned your name in my eyes
just for fun

i'm not worth second glances
i'm aware, but that doesn't
stop me from running after someone like you
even though

i didn't know you

what was i i like four
years ago? i don't know
if ill ever feel alive again
that's dramatic

past lives like ivy
growing up up my sides
webs of dust where you held me
yesterday, or a hundred years ago

i didn't know you

cup your hands around my lighter
breathe in, i burn your lungs
it would take a perfect windstorm
to undo the mess you made
and blow me out

snap my legs, theyre made of kindling
fold my arms, they're paper
it would take a perfect rainstorm
to wash yourself of me
and drown me out

what bout
after graduation?
no, time won’t exist, no
no one
to tell me when to move on
endless summer

i didn't know you

what bout
after graduation?
i might not exist, no
no one
to tell me when to move on
endless bummer
Track Name: Salt
explain the salt
or the shadows on my face
maybe it’s graduation, and papers left to write
my stomach's busy tying boy scout knots
maybe i still don’t know what’s coming for me
this again, this again.

oh, maybe i'm just fragile, my body's bulky limbs
my face is tired of itself again, and i can’t believe
i’m stuck with me, myself, for my whole life
will you sympathize with me or will you run away?

explain the salt
lingering on my lips
i'd sing about something bigger, like death or history
but love is all i seem to know about
i see it’s getting boring, four ballads for every fling
this again, this again.


would anyone like to follow the blue roads under my skin?
Track Name: Never Chill
i still got paper skin but my bones are cement
i’m used to falling for someone who doesn’t look at me (ever)
i’ve got stress fractures left from being thrown around
and i say it isn’t my fault
as if it isn't my fault
never chill

i was shocked he'd talk to me, no need to think ahead
no need to check how long the drive would be to his town
but he's got me grinning big
widest smile in a while
you know i'm down
i make it so obvious
never chill

who believes in that shit? why would i let myself
get warmed up to another sunny dream, unwarranted
won't you tell me it's okay
to feel anything at all
is it okay to get involved?
like hell it isn't my fault!
never chill
Track Name: Chamomile Crybaby
on my back again, the ceiling looks nice today
why do we miss our exes we don't love anymore?
there's a certain feeling in my oldest pictures
why do we miss those times we don't love anymore?

i don't have any medication for my racing heart
crush up some melatonin and hope for the best
chamomile crybaby can't learn to relax

i don’t mean to cry emotional wolf
maybe i just need to get laid or cry for ten hours or go to bed or have a drink

swallowed in apathy, what a moody thing to say
ride home at 2am, this isn't fun anymore
i change my clothes in front of an open window
who would try to see me when i'm in this state?

i don't have any medication for my fretful brain
knock back a Benadryl and hope for the best
chamomile crybaby can't learn to relax
Track Name: Untouchable Body
no one’s stopping me from digging thru my past
scrolling used to hurt but now it’s nothing
now i read your name in blue and try to remember how it felt to sleep in your everlasting arms

now i’m hoping for a good life
just us, our young bodies, living check to check
i’ll spend my summer drinking sangria
i’ll spend my summer in love with the unfeeling sun

burning my months away, maybe i’m happy
turning my legs red, untouchable body

burning my thoughts away, maybe i’m happy
turning my eyes red, untouchable body
