Track Name: Moon Landing
Fragile is my swimming mind, mind field
My thoughts are mine, mind field
Fragile is my misconception of the way
i should react when I don't
Fragile are my misconceptions of how I
hear, see, do, think, feel, taste, remember, hate, love, forget about
Track Name: i like skate punk, but i don't skate
There's another wound to my body
another burn on my back
but hey, I love it
I know where I am
Still I slip, I think about it

I can't make eye contact

I was sleeping, I was dreaming
of an existence where the things I love

Don't hate me

So, I am nothing, but I will build myself into something
something that I want to be
Track Name: Nothing
Normally he'd be home now, didn't think he' be this late
thought of all the times we enjoyed, a little bit at least
my thoughts are always erased, never replaced

You're up you're down
I want you to know it will all turn around
if you try hard enough

Still, nothing will be the same
if you don't try hard enough

I feel so out of place when I'm alone
Blowing away like paper down a street
that's how you described me
If I asked you about it you'd blow me off
Maybe not
Track Name: I'm a Ship
I'm a ship marooned
I'm a ship removed
from my natural habitat
my wet waters replaced with dry mats
You can't hoist up my sails for they don't sail no more

I know you get sea sick when I raise my voice at you
it's just you forget how to express yourself when you're

My hull capsized revealing my bare stomach
with all of the hairs removed so my hull could stomach
You must take this in, don't take it don't grant it

"Oh yeah, I'm going to go real far"
Track Name: Feeding a Bird
Be gentle tell me nothing's wrong
Feed me early
Hold that mold
Keep it cold
Track Name: Brave
Flash to scene walking weak on trail
you're not welcome you're not welcome there
You are a silhouette your features are gone
you are a silhouette you are nothing
But you convince you have no pain
no feeling to feel this feeling
I will not brave
Track Name: Counting Alone, You were in Everything
So I am the crazy one?
And if you stand by me does it make you worse?
Or does it make you the crazy one?
I will never get dressed
I will yell secrets into the air
I hope that it means something
Are you the crazy one?

Paste wings to your back
and hold a ring to your head
then look in the mirror now
you're honest with yourself
