Track Name: a letter
we’ll treat it like a picture
a work of art you love
interpret it like scripture
like it’s sent from above
but definitions just diminish
what’s not yet come to be
we’re not sure what is finished
we’ll know it when we see

i read yr letter and heard yr voice
you made a list of things to do
said ‘it feels better to have a choice’
whatever we want we always knew, we always do

we’ll treat it like equations
like it will balance out
use tactical evasion
any time we start to doubt
we’re standing at attention
pretend there’s order now
we’re waiting for inspection
to see what’s still allowed

can’t stand the sound? keep yr head down, keep yr voice down
all of us choose the way we lose
Track Name: from home
she wanted me to keep them in line
she didn’t know what i would find
all she held dear would scatter like seeds
and i can’t give her what she needs

what did you want when you came back

home could never promise
thought it could teach you to be honest
but you become distant by design
to deny what you left behind

all i wanted was somebody to talk to
all i wanted was somebody to hold
all i wanted was someone to wake up to
all i wanted was to never get old

i am whiter than a pill,
keep calm now, keep still
if they put a pricetag on it
i guarantee that you won’t want it

let’s play a game
we’ll call it broken bones
got me so riled up now, darlin
i ain’t goin home

i am heavier than lead
lay down now, play dead
if they took the feeling from it
don’t try to tell me you’d have done it
