about

this is an album that showcases the physicality of emotions shown through the aspects of a broken home. taking the twisted, warped ideology of the dysfunctional modern family and representing it with meaningless everyday objects, metaphysical entities, emotions, wants, and needs. this album is an exhibition of how it feels to grow up; how it feels to love; how it feels to almost die; how it feels to be an individual with a priceless soul.

this album is dedicated to fatherless homes, motherless homes, and the missing pieces in between.



for me and you,
the people in my dreams,
and the planets that don't align.

Track Name: dreams
i woke up to the sound of the heater
kickin on again
dramamine stains
on my chest
wont go away
yet

maybe we havent grown up yet

put on your clothes and brush your teeth
you look so sad when i ask to leave
but instead i stay
to see if i can say anything

anything at all

mixed emotions
memories from yesterday
i try to ask
if you think youre gonna be okay

screaming in the middle of the storm
with the bright lights on
theres always one more reason
one more reason to stay

always one more reason to stay

wishing you were young again
with the gun in your hand
theres always one more reason to stay
when all you wanna do is fade away

fade away
fade away

you were my reason to stay

christmas pictures
and holiday cards
on your dresser
i can hear it in your voice again

i dont care much about it
im glad you found something to take your mind off it

i dont care
about you or anyone else
you care about

i dont care
about your blue hair
or however often it changes

youre not gonna impress
youre not impressing anyone
no ones impressed
no ones impressed

no one cares

(its not you in my dreams anymore
its someone different)
Track Name: birdhouse
maybe the cold shoulders better
when all you can do is lie
we're just friends
we're just friends

i can tell you i laugh it off
i can tell you i'm alright
but it's a hole in my chest
it's a hole in my chest

you can say that you're sorry
i'll say it's alright
but it's a great inconvenience
i've been lied to once or twice

i don't keep track of things anymore
i just let friends slip away by the second
i've grown so damn impatient
to the way you make me feel

it's a hole in my chest
it's a hole in my chest
i feel the beat of my exposed heart
again

here's the house where your brother died
back before you'd see
where wallpepers coming off the walls
and birdhouses are falling off the trees

everybody laughed so much
touched her bellie and felt her kick
had the shower in september rains
that was when you got sick

touch one side and scurry back
learn to live from check to check
die in san fran so unhappy
superglued to a goddamn skateboard deck

black and white in technicolor
it's all written in the monologue
black hair and shiny fingernails
you're just another gear and another cog

life was but a dream so sweet
life was but a dream so sweet

and the birdhouse falls
and the birdhouse falls
and the birdhouse falls

and the birdhouse falls
and the birdhouse falls
and the birdhouse falls
and the birdhouse falls

and the birdhouse falls
and the birdhouse falls
Track Name: wait
what do i look like
a cash machine?
all ill ever be

oh if i ever become anything
greater than myself
and less than
everyone else

in line for my ticket to ride
waiting all our lives
for a ticket to ride

waiting all our lives
for a ticket
Track Name: no anger
summer didn't last
and the winter didn't either
and i wish i had your number
so i could finally call you

but you don't pick up
the machine was just what i wanted

i'm too scared to knock
so i don't know how i even pressed those buttons in the first place
and i'm too scared to talk
so i would've pissed my pants if you answered

and i know your brother still calls
just to hear you talk to him
i picked up the phone at his house last night
i heard you
Track Name: blood
bugs crawl inside the cracks
you made when you came back
the ones in your chest that make it hard to breathe
and when you cough it's usually blood
and when you breathe it's wheeze

cut me from your life for good
are you as nervous as i am for this

one more night before i fly over
a sea full of sharks that will die as i sink

one bad break
before your bones snap back in place
one last night spent staring
up at the stars

cut me from your life for good
are you as scared as i am for this
one big hit before you go under
one last breathe before the fireworks blow

up the night sky
Track Name: no sadness
flip the coin already
everyone here sucks at everything
im so tired all the time and pissed off
and jealous and in agony

thirteen days and thirteen nights
i got twelve more to go
lets see if i can make it through the snow
to your place

lets see if i can make it through the bullshit
to get to your truth
lets see if i can make it across this leap
to conclusions

lets see where we go when we die
Track Name: no frustration
still smells like your perfume
and i don't know what to do
this house is cold and empty
your hearts so cold and empty

sewing my eyelids
to the backs of my conceousness
every time i fall asleep
i see you in my fucked up dreams

theres no coincidence here
theres no frustration in my voice tonight
theres no coincidence here
everything matters to me

theres on coincidence here
theres no frustration in my voice tonight
theres no coincidence here
everything matters to me
everything matters to me
everything matters

the lights in the driveway
were blinding when they hit me
a million miles per hour
laugh it off like my destiny

some nights i hope you'll run away
so i wont have to deal with it anymore
then when you open the front door
we'll both regret everything

(regret everything
scared of what ive become)

some nights i miss you more than others
some nights i miss you more than others
some nights i miss you more than others
Track Name: beauty
smoke in your lungs
you're nothing without your insecurity
so insecure
about your necessities

i took the finest flowers
down to her grave
i watched her family weep
as they put her in the ground again

i took the finest daydream
down to your grave
i balanced on the tombstone
and i fell asleep next to you

i pushed the finest shovel
into your soil
and i dug you back up
just to take your first name

filling with spiders
and sugary noise
blissful acids
and holy choruses

holy choruses

i took the finest flowers
down to your grave
and you rose up out
we were all crying and singing about

you looked with such pride and integrity
i had to wipe my face and match her enthusiasm quick
before she knew
anything was wrong

i put a smile on that said
somethings wrong
but i can't tell you
i can't tell you

i can't tell you
Track Name: birdcage
i'm talking to myself through the mirror
fleeting thoughts rush in and out like lightning
i'm trapped inside here in my birdcage
life in a jar of fireflies

this is the last time i'll see you alive tonight
tonight

i'm talking to myself through the mirror
fleeting thoughts rush in and out like lightning
i'm trapped inside here in my birdcage
life in a jar of fireflies

this is the last time i'll see you alive tonight
tonight
this the last time you'll kiss me goodbye tonight
Track Name: june
if june comes this year
i don't know how i'm gonna handle it
and if these methods stop working
i don't know how i'm gonna fight the tears back

cause i'm on your doorstep
at 3 in the morning
and i'm too scared to knock
i'm too scared to talk to you

if june comes this year
just skip it all entirely
hibernate for 3 weeks
miss everyone i meet

but most importantly
disregard the love that she showed to me

cause i'm on your doorstep
at 3 in the morning
and i'm too scared to knock
i'm too scared to talk to you

i'm too scared to knock
i'm too scared to talk to you
