Track Name: Tell Me What You Think
tell me what you think you notice
or if it is ever gonna hold up
been living life blindfolded
will you ever know you’re enough

tell me what you think you notice
or it is ever gonna hold up
got 24 eyes, they’re glued on you
judging posture, poised in salute

i don’t mind, no i don’t, no i don’t
i’ve been busy killing time
missing subtle gestures
we could be on the same page
but i’m condensed, handwritten, and paraphrased

you have something of mine
you will never learn to replace so
forgive me
leave us no trace

the noise of machines will drown out
the sound of every conversation
as if to let us
contemplate them

i don’t mind, no i don’t, no i don’t
i’ve been busy wasting time
gazing into your floor
these spots could be murals on your wall
but condemned to be beneath your feet
Track Name: Transparent Comparisons
i’ve been making unfair comparisons
since the moment that i first saw you again
you could never compare to my overactive imagination

you’ve been staring straight through me
i can hear it in every word that you speak
with your opaque stares and frustrated glares
all cast in my direction

your regrets are just a desperate grasp at a better past
and your remorse it will get you nowhere
it has gotten you nowhere

and your regrets are just a shameful attempt at a better past
and your remorse it will get you nowhere
it has gotten you nowhere

and my regrets are just shameful attempt at a cover up
of who i was and what i put forward and what i put forward
and my regrets are just a desperate at a better past
and my remorse is pulling me backwards
it’s pulling me backwards
Track Name: Guidelines
chasing myself in circles
i am sure to collapse
dizzy, disgusting proportions
distracted, i’m feeling sick
living distortion

with adrenaline, i’m hearing my own blood
course through my veins
pulsating earlobes, i’m going insane
waiting for some sort of verdict
i’m going insane

i’ll never be as good as myself look into the future
i’ll go down until i’m broken and can’t go on

i’ll never be as good as myself or the image i’ve created
keeping myself in my own hell
i need help

don’t think for a second
that these lines should be treated as guidelines
or the marks in the roads are just suggestions to follow
they won’t keep you safe

i’ve been racking my brain for some sort of explanation
but all i can hear is the blood coursing through my own earlobes

i’ll never behave until there is damage to be undone
(keep yourself safe, you are my son)
(keep yourself safe, we love you)
i’ll never behave until there is damage to be undone
(keep yourself safe, you are my son)
(you’ll never change the way i feel)

i’ll never behave until there is damage to be undone
(just keep yourself safe, just keep yourself safe)
i’ll never behave until there is damage to be undone
(just keep yourself safe)

these guidelines won’t keep you safe
these guidelines won’t keep you safe
these guidelines won’t keep you safe
(the walls, they won’t keep you sane, i hope you’ve retained your faith)
these guidelines won’t keep you safe
(not to save face)
Track Name: Stranded
so i’m standing on this blazing pavement
and my voice is wearing paper thin
from the words i choose
and the ones that always happen to get let through

see, i can’t compel you
to feel the way i know you never have
so i’ll just compare you
to every single boy i thought i had

and it shouldn’t mean anything
that it is me in this situation
always crowding up your judgement
and ending in frustration
i will never be the one you rely on for all your needs

you see i lose my mind
whenever i’m around you
you know, i lose my thoughts
whenever i’m around you

so i’m standing on this blazing pavement
and my voice is wearing paper thin
from the words i choose
and the ones that always happen to get let through

and it shouldn’t mean anything
that it is me in this situation
always clouding up your judgement
and ending in frustration
i will never be the one you rely on for everything
Track Name: Benefit
maybe i should give you the benefit
of the doubt when i’m not convinced
that you can help anymore than you
already tried to

maybe i should give you the benefit
but i know you only know your codependence
how can i trust anyone who
thinks like you

maybe i should give you the benefit
of the doubt when i am not convinced
that you can help anymore than you
already failed to

and what if i should try to quantify
your dependence but i’m never gonna wonder why
i’ll never get any closer to you without asking

‘cause i don’t know how it’s going to end
with you all the way over there
‘cause i’m impartial, i don’t care
as long as i’m not involved

maybe i should give you the benefit
of the doubt when i am not convinced
that you can help anymore than you
already failed to

and what if i should try to qualify
your dependence but i’m never gonna wonder why
i’ll never get any closer to you without asking

‘cause i don’t know how it’s going to end
with you all the way over there
‘cause i’m impartial, i don’t care
as long as i’m not involved

‘cause i would drive the 751 miles
to let you know
i don’t care
Track Name: Amtrak
i would shovel this train out, all by myself
if it will get you gone just a little bit faster
i would dig this train out, all by myself
if it will get you out of my life a little faster

but i know it’s no use
i’ll be stuck here talking to you
‘til the morning comes
it’s another recourse that i’ll have to endure your voice
it’s a choir of mistakes
it’s a chorus that i can’t take
for another second
unless of course
you decide to call

and i would dig this train out, all by myself
if it will get you out of my life a little faster
i would dig this train out, all by myself
if it will get you back to milwaukee on time

but i know it’s no use
i’ll be stuck here talking to you
‘til the morning comes
it’s another recourse that i’ll have to endure your voice
it’s a choir of mistakes
it’s a chorus that i can’t take
for another second
unless of course
you the earth begins to thaw

but i don’t know how to break this to you
but my motivation is anything
anything but the same

and i can’t prove this to you
that I’m full of positive thoughts and wishes
concerning you
Track Name: Fair (Whether/Weather)
it’s deepening depending on
the frequencies you scream at me
the inconsistencies between
the words i think and those i speak

fair whether you abuse yourself
feign confusion to excuse yourself

fair-weather friend cry in the rain
fair-weather friend cry in the rain

complain or brave the storm, you will always have a place
complain or brave the storm, you will always have a place
