Track Name: Little Fanfare
sick of these hold outs • clean plate so we can roll out

cashing checks your heart can’t pay

like start tomorrow • no, let’s start it today

i’m getting sick of these hold ups • clean slate so we can blow up

eyes locked on the treasure you hold
why even start the diggin’ if the dirt is gold?

now try to shrink down • f it into your self-worth, f ind promise

bring it back, let it grow up and go to your head

sick of guidance • on the rocks with the sirens

crash land in a place and a time
“is this really my life?” this one couldn’t be mine.”

i’m feeling guilty for ambition
like i forgot to ask permission

but i’d rather die with my heart in knots
than live thinking ‘bout the moment that i might have lost

now try to shrink down • f it into my own self-worth, f ind promise

bring it back, let it grow up and go to my head

blast off • see the world • built that cage, now you live in it

blast off • see the world from above

shrink down • f it into your own self-worth, f ind promise

bring it back, let it grow up and go to your head

shrink down • fit into my own self worth, f ind promise

bring it back, let it grow up and go to my head
Track Name: Full Body Mirror
why don’t she feel good like she look? what’s happening inside?
open up, come out of those curves • don’t parenthesize

should I feel bad about the way I’m acting on the phone?
what can i say to make it clear i want her in my home?

reduce me to my skin and bone • just base me off my tint and tone

starting to form an idea but i still don’t know what i said
to make that sweet girl disappear
she said she’d come over, she swore it
if i let her out of her full body mirror

why don’t she sound happy to hear my voice on the line?
open up, come out of those curves • don’t say that it’s f ine

should i feel bad about the way i’m acting in my head?
what can i say to make it clear i want her in my bed?

reduce me to my skin and bone • just base me off my tint and tone

starting to form an idea but i still don’t know what i said
to make that sweet girl disappear
she said she’d come over she swore it
if i let her out of her full body mirror

been sayin’ things that i don’t mean at all • i’ve lost control
if i say i’m sorry it means that i take all the blame

reduce me to my skin and bone • just base me off my tint and tone

starting to form an idea but i still don’t know what i said
to make that sweet girl disappear

she said she’d come over, she swore it
if i let her out of her full body mirror

starting to form an idea but i still don’t know what i said
to make that sweet girl disappear

she said she’d come over, she swore it
if i let her out of her full body mirror
Track Name: Love That Never Fades
love that never fades in and out • i’m runnin’ out of days
love that never folds • through the grit and through the gettin’ old

i know
impossible, how can it be that two souls emit a similar hue?

i’m told
impossible, can’t find no body who could love yourself as much as you do

love that never swells • keep it the same or it’ll fade out
love that never burned • so keep it quenched or it’ll flame out

i know
impossible, how can it be • two equations plot a similar line

i’m told
impossible, don’t try to fight it when we start to grow apart over time

fold, fold the sheets • take the bus • quickly wrap up now
choose another one (choose another one)
change the sheets • take the bus • slowly unwrap now

checkin’ out the booty • wooden chest under water • i’ll loot that booty
choose another one (choose another one)

burn the sheets • miss the bus • uninstall app now • wait, swipe me right

your feed, and i’m scrolling • you’re lookin’ good, girl
think you know where i’m going • don’t go

light weight • hella heavy • i’m ready to go whenever you’re ready to go
trust me, hella honest • said it’s the real thing and i meant it i promise
light weight • hella heavy • i’m ready to go whenever you’re ready to go

love that never fades • cold water • tumble dry low
love that never dulls • stay sharp • yeah, that’s my arrow

i know,
impossible, how can it be that two souls emit a similar hue

i’m told
impossible, can’t find no body who could love yourself as much as you do
Track Name: Stomping Ground
easy does it • already out of control
i love that dress and them shoes • my god, my girl
(baby let me take you home)

there’s the exit • i want her outta that door
our night is bound to end • front to back to bed
(think i’ll go and call a cab)

[stop giving me looks, i think you know it’s distractin’
like how you‘re dressed but i don’t like how you’re actin’
i don’t wanna be your stomping ground tonight]

easy does it • i’m pulling out all the stops (she loves it)
i’ve never been so on my game
(probably gonna make it big)

there’s the exit • i want her out through the door
our night is bound to end • front to back to floor
(i’m the kind of guy she likes)

[stop giving me looks • i think you know it’s distractin’
i like how you’re dressed but i don’t like how you’re actin’
i don’t wanna be your stomping ground tonight

stop buying my drinks • no, i don’t think you’re attractive
i smiled at you but then you overreacted
i don’t wanna be your stomping ground tonight]

how presumptuous • i’m just out with my friends
i’m going home after this • don’t want your propositions

i’m not as drunk as you are • you’re not as sharp as i am
i’m out too late and i regret what i’m wearin’

[stop giving me looks • i think you know it’s distractin’
like how you’re dressed but i don’t like how you’re actin’
i don’t wanna be your stomping ground tonight

stop buying my drinks • no, i don’t think you’re attractive
i smiled at you but then you overreacted
i don’t wanna be your stomping ground tonight

stop giving me looks • i think you know it’s distractin’
like how you’re dressed • but i don’t like how you’re actin’
i don’t wanna be your stomping ground tonight

stop, no just stop • stop, i want it to end
i’m never coming out to this club again
i don’t wanna be your stomping ground tonight]
Track Name: Be Afraid
i’m a monster, you ever had one?
be afraid • be afraid
i’m a monster, you never had one?

if it isn’t inside my head, how can i be sure it’s real?

no, i didn’t catch that you were broke down
because i don’t know how to feel

if i didn’t see it happen, how can i be sure it did?

no, i don’t believe you, couldn’t have been
you are all inside my head

i’m a monster, ever had one?
be afraid • be afraid
cause i’m a monster, you never had one?
be afraid • be afraid

now my ego runneth over, can you see it on the floor?
no? what?

i can’t hear you, no, i can’t feel you
empathy is overrated, all it does is slow me down

no, i didn’t see you struggling down there
because i f loat above the ground • f loat above the ground

i’ve got bolts in my neck, fangs in my teeth
god, something ain’t right with that boy
my eyes turning red • you should be scared
‘cause i wish i could trust but i confess i’m not the best
at showing that my heart’s a mess
it could’ve stopped and i wouldn’t know

i’m a monster, ever had one?
be afraid • be afraid
‘cause i’m a monster, you never had one?
be afraid • be afraid
Track Name: Idiot Soul
infinite ballroom
but i’ll find oyu anyway

can’t sit in the throne room
i’ll crown you anyway

she’s so sweet
she came from the sprawl in her
empty idiot soul

idiot soul
break down the wall
now you’re the princess
i’m nothing at all

idiot soul
nothing to me
partners in crime
f ind us a room

baby, get knighted
go down on one knee when it’s...

so sweet
she came from the sprawl in her
empty idiot soul

idiot soul
no family name
idiot soul
my chosen name

alone on the 4th f loor
forbidden to strangers
allow me to show you
my private chambers

she’s so sweet
she came from the sprawl in her
empty idiot soul
Track Name: Artificial Sweeteners
a very special episode
the kind you can watch with your folks
there’s something sentimental
anecdotal
i’m gonna go through the motions again

she really likes the song i wrote
that hi-hat on the quarter note
self-referential, confessional
i’m gonna go through the motions again

searching all over creation
sweeten the deal
saccharine and masturbation

a very special episode
a message that’s shoved down your throat
open wider, moral fiber
i’m gonna go through the motions again

she really likes the riffs i write
the hammer-ons, the bends and slides
kick on the distortion pedal,
crank the levels
i’m gonna go through the motions again

searching all over creation
sweeten the deal
saccharine and masturbation

searching all over creation
sweeten the deal
saccharine and masturbation
Track Name: Summoner
light show, where did all my days and nights go?
tiny screen, take me to the nearest girl i might know

hot spot, meet her at her bus stop
but the map is still loading, loading, loading

no don’t do this to me, friend, no no no please
i’m pleadin’, how’s she gonna call me back?
and how do i get home from here?

dead dead dead

dead zone, dead dreams, listen out for her ring tone
walk a block, kick a can, take a piss and then moan

scared i’ll get shot walking to the bus stop
this neighborhood is lonely lonely lonely

why’d you do this to me, friend?
come on now please i’m pleadin’
how’s she gonna call me back?
and how do i get home from here?

i shouldn’t have to miss my connection
and i feel all kinds of pathetic when i’m asking for directions

hook up, wish i had a name i could look up
pretty face, pay me back for all the time you took up

time to let go, looks like i’m a no show
but now where am i going going going?
how’d you do this to me, friend? i asked you please, i pleaded
she’s never gonna call me back and i’ll never get home from here

i shouldn’t have to miss my connection
and i feel all kinds of pathetic when i’m asking for directions

my luck has never been good
i’ve never been so scared of a neighborhood
these girls are gonna kill me, somebody’s bound to kill me out here
Track Name: Deep Down
not my room
not my bed
unformed thoughts clot
in my head

not my closet
not my clothes
i’ll still wear them
i suppose

deep down
can we go deep down?
unwind
i’m coming unwound

not my house
not my block
i’m not laughing
make it stop

where’s the exit?
where’s real life?
endless cycle
days and nights

deep down
can we go deep down?
unwound
watch me unwind

deep down
let me go deep down
unwind
i’m coming unwound
Track Name: Flagship
peer, appear to disappear • all knotted up with fear • white sails

a vessel secure and safely nestled
lay you down in the seabed • fall in love with the masthead

can i make you my flagship? all my eggs in one basket
i’ve been thinking about asking, a question requesting--- no, nevermind

i’m tangled in the sweet things that you say and that you do
i wanna stay enamored over you

i can’t go on • i can’t back down • i can’t stay deep or i’ll drown

sheer, like here but not quite here • all twisted in the gears • white sails

moan like mine but not my own
lay you down in the seabed • don’t fall in love with the masthead

can i make you my flagship? all my eggs in one basket
i’ve been thinking about asking, a question requesting--- no, nevermind
i’m all caught in the sweet things that you say and that you do
i wanna stay enamored over you

i can’t go on, i can’t back down, i can’t stay deep or i’ll drown

hey, flickering light • two ships pass in the night
hey, ghost ship, tell me where are you floatin’? and can i come aboard?

can i make you my flagship? all my eggs in one basket
i’ve been thinking about asking, a question, requesting--- no, nevermind
i’m tangled in the sweet things that you say and that you do
i wanna stay enamored over you

i can’t go on • i can’t back down • i can’t stay deep or i’ll drown

flagship? all my eggs in one basket
i’ve been thinking about asking, a question, requesting--- no, nevermind
i’m tangled in the sweet things that you say and that you do
i wanna stay enamored over you

i can’t go on • i can’t back down • i can’t stay deep or i’ll drown
Track Name: Let It Absorb You
i’ve been so in the moment lately that i’ve forgotten what my name is
i don’t remember

i don’t really want it that bad, i don’t need control, no
i just know the feeling i have to let go, come on, let go

i feel like i can see forever, everything’s folding up together
make it all come together

i don’t need to understand it, i don’t need to know, no
i just know the feeling i have to let go, come on, let go

i’ve been dreamin’, hop in, so down to let go
do you want to break through? i didn’t think so

i don’t really want it that bad, i don’t need control, no
i just know the feeling i have to let go, come on, let go

let it all absorb you, let it f ill your head
make your body whole

let it all consume you
you can feel yourself become someone else

to be inside the garden wall and to know that you are there
is knowing everything at this moment which is all moments before

let it all absorb you, let it fill your head
make your body whole

let it all consume you
you can feel yourself become someone else

i don’t really want it that bad
i just know the feeling that i have

let go, come on, let go

let it all absorb you
let it all absorb you
