Track Name: half moon
don’t go anywhere
don’t go, don’t go

you were growing thinner
and i was too afraid to mention that
or the cigarettes you were
consuming by the pack
i didn’t know what to say
about the bags under your eyes
not to mention the ones on the floor
but i knew you were sad before
and all i can hope is one day
you won’t be sad anymore
just don’t go anywhere

don’t go, don’t go
please don’t go anywhere
Track Name: a running list (9/20/14, 1:07am)
i made a list of all my bad habits
i’d like to break them but i’ll need practice
and i’ll need time
and maybe somebody to keep me in line

‘cause i always eat dinner at 3am
but i never stay awake for our conversations
and i can’t stop biting my nails
and i can’t stop forgetting my pills
and i always lose my keys
and i always take things personally
it’s silly

i put my head down
i think a dumb amount
Track Name: piss boy
text me some bullshit
dripping with pretension
about being decent
about having a conversation

but i don’t owe you anything
and i have no interest in your game
i wish i’d known the rules before i played

text me some bullshit about
how your side of the story
is the only one that counts
“don’t tell your side,
and drop it”

but i don’t owe you anything
i have no interest in your game
because i learn from my mistakes
now i know better than to play
Track Name: halves
some nights i wake up shaking because
i’m so afraid
and i know what it’s really like to be lonely
’cause i can feel you in my sleep an inch too far away

i’m trying not to let it matter
but i’m smiling so hard it hurts
Track Name: movies - storm clouds
you told me everyone was dead
you cannot explain yourself, but i can
Track Name: movies - erie
don’t ever forget this: the past is dead and has been
and these bookless pages work like a muscle relaxant
and these misplaced nightmares are a geographic message

don’t ever regret this: it hurts but it happened
i’m taking a trip now; i’m not saying where
i was evaporated in sunshowers again
i’m passing worms on
sidewalks, stepping in the soft dirt
i was evaporated in sunshowers again
i’m climbing up the tall tree, healing all my sunburns
i was evaporated in sunshowers again

i just need to heal, and so do they
sundust draws the circles above our sleeping heads
and everything i whisper
just runs fleeting like a dream
the fruits we crave are drowned and distant compared to the trees
funeral cakes and blue dresses were only brief prevails
Track Name: movies - evaporated girl
evaporated girl went running away
she was never there at all, so she melted away
last tuesday’s rain fell anyway,
to chase her to a pocket-sized space
evaporated girl, i can’t breathe,
i’m drowning
please help me get to shore with seagulls sounding
seaweed tangled ‘round my waist with salt surrounding

my feet touched home on a patch of narrow gravestones,
in a factory, i’m rain clothed
sent shivers down the frail bones,
it’s a viral place and i’m prone

depression’s a pet
sometimes it leaves, it comes back
sometimes it leaves, it goes
