Track Name: Branigan
What’s worse than all the lies and failure,
Is just the fact that I can’t seem to put it down on paper.

I swear to god if I spend any more time in a room with you,
I’ll invest my time in cultures and photos that mean nothing to you.

All of my words meant nothing to you.

Fit to be tied.

Fit to be tied the weight of the words you never said.
Because messages you can’t get across you’re not taken serious.

You wrote me off and out of bed,
Because you had trouble sleeping.
You wrote me off and out of your head,
Because you couldn't take me serious
You wrote me off and out of your head,
But I'm fine it's not that serious
Track Name: Our Can Saw
Just wanting to be there to be your friend
But I get nervous and
I can read you like a book in braille
Conversations as colorful as grayscale
But I get so lonely sometimes
And I can’t keep friends around
Because I get way too nervous
And all my words come out wrong

Tell me what it feels like to be so depressed
And so happy all at once
I can drive all night smiling but
Dammit if I’m all alone by myself
All at once it hits me
I’ve been away from you for days now
And that doesn’t solve anything
To make me feel better
Just bitter

Coffee stained breath
Staying a nervous wreck
Another pack of cigarettes
My brain will thank me for my lungs regret

I just needed some time to myself
But you keep a panic in me
I’m sorry I don’t have the social skills
To take ten shots at parties
Do you think I give a rat’s ass
What you do in Athens
For the greater good of keeping in touch
I’ll respond in order to feel connected

We’ll keep in touch
Track Name: Rosie Had A Stroke
There are rough patches of skin
In our words
We dig our talons
Where we know they hurt
You rolled your eyes
To the next verse
You were more interested
In the contents of your purse
Than my words

I'll hold you tight
While I push you away
I'll say goodbye
And yell "please stay"

Well I stayed up all night
Wondering if you dream
While you had nightmares
Clinch your nails
To the seems of the mattress
We sleep once a week
Don't think I knew you at your best
While we were at our peak

Truly you deserve better sleep
My body wraps around you
Like sandpaper is to sheets

But you said you loved it
I bet you don't even sleep

But you said you loved it
I twitch in my sleep
It wakes you up and
Makes you love me
Track Name: Comfort Driving
What I see is real more or less
If I can't tell the difference between two situations
But your eyes you don't trust them
Is a load of bullshit

At least thought I could identifiy
With what's in front of me
Atlanta Georgia
Your face is part of me

I've got some proof and I'm waiting for some other
Still doesn't quite explain why I don't know my older brother
I've got some proof and I'm waiting for some other
Still doesn't quite explain why I don't know my younger brother

What I see is real more or less
If I can't tell the difference between two situations
But your eyes you don't trust them
Is a load of bullshit

You cried when I left the room
You said true love is beautiful
And yeah, It's right in front of me
More real than the word of doubt they speak

I believe only what I see.
