Track Name: Bloom
I've been trying to forget for days, pacing around and trying to count the ways I let your spite poison what I hold closest. You leave your shit around wherever you go, all of your allies quickly turn to foes and now it's best that you be on your way. May everything bloom in your absence, think of us just in past tense, consider it a better ending. Your clouds follow me and rain everyday, they only serve to just get in the way and flood my mind with thoughts of clearer skies. May everything bloom in your absence, it's not enough for you to just go away, I'm counting down the days until the sunshine. Are you out there? Picking through the petals of last summer's garden. Are you there? Digging through the compost in hopes of flowers.
Track Name: Movie Theatre Theft
You wonder what it's like to be on your own, now you pay for it. You conjure up these thoughts and you call them home, I wish that it was here. Hold your head up for the very last time, you're never going to change your mind. Count the seconds while you're taking your time, take your bottle and leave us all behind. You long for the days when your vision's blurred, now you're blind at heart. You offer up your lies as a sign of guilt, why can't you admit you made this wrong, you used your shaking hands to build a fence that I sit on. It feels like I'm not alive, It feels like I'm wasting time.
Track Name: Where's The Fire?
Bring up another flaw I have and can't change now, beat it in my head until I break down. Say you're nothing, say you're everything I hate. I'm just stuck and losing my place. Can't erase my mistakes and I'm sorry, I've spent too much time with my head in my hands, tears seeping through the floor. Grow up and learn from this. What a waste, I can't explain where my head's at these days, count the waves, I'm up and down am I just sinking?
