Track Name: Birds of Prey
I would do anything you told me to
even the things I promised myself I'd never do

A French philosopher once said
my soul it weighs nothing
my soul it weighs nothing
but that all means the same to you

no one ever told me
to watch out
never go out
without your shell

now I know that people will stoop so low
to prey on the naive
with childish eyes
eager to believe
and now I don't believe in anything
Track Name: Memo
They say use it or lose it
well I lost it
'cause I never had it anyway

immeasurable time tessellates
patterns of past recreate
thinking then knowing
thinking then losing it
write it down
write it down
write it down
abstract thoughts are found in the clouds
Track Name: Little Red Flags
When everyone's your enemy
it's hard, it's hard to see
that the one that's closest is cutting
watching you bleed
picking at the scabs
watching you bleed
little red flags
silent warnings
the world so small
in your tiny version of reality

to ask for help is so simple
to ask for help is so shameful
the question that I ask myself so often
is it wrong to mourn the self
I lost to my own inaction
Track Name: Cold Front
I haven't spoken for days
but I'm always the one
to over-exaggerate
and it will be plainly painted
on my inexpressive face
oo oooo oo

Is this the definition of a good day
watching the clouds chase each other
casting their shadows on unsuspecting passers-by
'till they are tired, dehydrated
go inside for a glass of water
and call their friends on the telephone

and I want to call my friends on the telephone
but I have no friends, just the phone,
so I sit and watch the clouds chase each other all
alone oo oooo oo
