Track Name: Signals
i keep sending these signals to you
Track Name: For Her
the spiders are crawling out of my head and into my heart,
even though we're closer i fear we're drifting further apart.
i hated how everything, but nothing, was said
and our aristocrats game of feelings reminds me of how we bled.
saying our muted goodbyes as our lives flew back and forth,
my time revolved around us but i knew we'd eventually be caught,
i guess it was ok that your depiction of a gentle happiness was absent of me,
but in mine
you're my everything.
i wish i knew whether you knew i was hurting
and i would ask myself in the mirror's glass stained sky blue by these iridescent memories
every time i saw the place the front door was open,
so how come in my dreams it was always tightly locked?
i told you about my dream and how i was left hanging upside down outside your door
and you laughed,
but i could feel it shook your body to the core.

` for her
Track Name: Tuffy Town (Summer Dreams)
the world was ours, and it's never gonna be the same
i'm the loneliest when i'm not alone
thinking of the words you might say
friends came in the chapel's waves
and the moon hung a star to amaze
but we gave it away

when our god came down from the sky
all the drugs we did
made us cry
a man who went insane
at his worst
he forgot his own name
it's never gonna be okay
Track Name: Breaking the Law With A Morally Sound Prerogative
7). Breaking the Law With a Morally Sound Prerogative
can i cry over someone
that i never knew
can i feel their beating heart
to know that mine beats too

'just get the money off him, tell him we just need the money
i mean, at the end of the day were just some boys tryna sling some dweeb so you know'
Track Name: A Beautiful Picture of Someone Dying
you say that i'm drowning
but the water's only six feet deep
you say that i'm on fire
but i can't feel the heat
Track Name: Waiting For A Bus To Take Me Someplace Happy (For Her II)
erase the river won't take me away
and i can't swim
let me out

the pain is gone
and i know why
for you
for her

these floors keep moving
maybe it could work
