Track Name: Tulsa
They were talking shop about all the parts
you knew nothing of
so you searched yourself in another room
and didnt find anything there
And you drank a glass of water and count down from one hundred
and get lost somewhere around fifty six
What was I supposed to be doing?
Forced like a vaction to Tulsa
You're impregnated with the idea of true love
And it moves to fast to comprehend it
So you only half explain it
And now you're so far gone
What was I supposed to be doing?
Track Name: Bloomin'
Completely satisfied, you slump into the night
Sink into the casserole, let them know you're awful
War was waged that day, and a difference was never made
Rewarded; pronounced brave, we couldnt have done it without you
And what good could do?
Hey, there's a reason it feels great
And it's giving us the creeps
Put the bottle down and catch up on some sleep
Colors of your life bubbled up just like hot grease
Fizzle up your character, puts you in a chair so you can
See what happens next, completely lacking context
Civilized at best, we couldnt have done it without you
And what good could do?
Wait, there's a reason it feels great
And it's giving us the creeps
Put the bottle down, get your systems into place, and
Catch up on some sleep
What if it feels good? Pours water on your soul
Track Name: She's Gonna Be So Great
Things eventually take shape
My mind finds a way out when things get hot and heavy
I'm in dirt, I'm covered and it hurts
I'm coughing up so much blood, I'm in love but you tell me to wait
You know she's gonna be so great
And she's just waiting for the day
That it finally goes away (and she said)
I-I'm done with it 
And she's done with me
She's got her father eyes
She finally realized
It's not enough
I've been so far away
To far to see that she
you know she's gonna be so great
And she's just waiting for the day
That it finally goes away (And she said)
I-I'm done with it
And she's done with me
I don't know how to feel
Track Name: Signals Crossed
It looks all right if it's nothing but the highlights
And I stand ashamed of my face, but i put it out anyway
Like it's okay
You could just speak exactly what's on your mind
But that doesnt mean that i would understand
Words they come out, but not quite how you planned
I thought that would land
But all our signals cross and I feel like I'm lost
Hey, dont give it away until you know
What you shouldnt say and so they go
Where they all may in the dawn
cause they're all gone
Cigarette high to the ceiling down low
I won't survive, if you only knew
I want to feel important just like that 
I want my intentions to ring true until they're simply not
And all our signals crossed
Track Name: A Companion
It's appealing to know that you're taking it slow
Where you stand, you're not better than that
It's a fine line in your eyes
It's a feeling that's disguised 
It'll cover up our lives until we're sick of it
You can be here or stay there
It's a fine thought or a prayer
my desires are much greater than before
and maybe we don't know how
But we'll figure it out sometime
Maybe not now, that's fine
And we repeat the same designs
Build it up and down again
Feeling will subside and then
You'll find another island 
Until you're sick of it
You can be here or stay there
It's a fine thought or a prayer
My desires are much greater than before
Surely you can't ignore it now honey we're too late
And i'm too vain to say a thing
My desires linger onward til they're no more
And what good is no more?
I got to stand up just to say
You wouldnt want it that way too
But when you just can't change the way you feel
There's nothing you can do
And you've heard it all before, when loves becomes a chore
you know it's through
I know you're fine, you'll draw that line
Maybe you should sleep on it
Track Name: Crocs
Stuck in a rut, so what?
I saw the shame in your face that day
I could see the sun through your window
It's not so simple when you throw it away
I feel exactly how I said I'd feel
Like that wasn't feel
And i get used to thinking nothing gives
So why should I speak?
Conversations lead to more conversations lead to more of this
I get sick I get so nervous I get so nervous I make it that much worse
Timelines lead to existential dread
It makes no sense
I'm fine as long as I'm vegetated
without movement
Conversations lead to more conversations lead to more of this
I get sick I get so nervous I get so nervous I make it that much worse
Moments are just fissures to how you really are
God has the answers if you're done searching
We'd really love it if you'd just come back home
Track Name: You Won't
Hide while you can or you won't know what hit
He's on top of it, making sure that everyone's allright 
But is he okay? You won't ever know
This isn't typical
Rising tides pull me back to
Satisfy the urge and don't speak too soon
They'd be damned to find out that you
Are a raging bull, huffing and puffing
You won't stop until
Water fills up our room until
You feel guilt; you'll have no choice
But to swim upward and face all your friends now
What was that all about? 
A tantrum leaves a trail of doubts
Pressing matters lose meaning if theyre without feeling
And i'm burning up just to get the thought out
You're jumping out of your skin 
And I'm thinking of jumping off
You don't know when to quit
