Jet Pack 05:09
the more i learn, the less makes sense the weight will crush my brain, i think it's time to run away fill the tank and blast off all our things will grow dust, and the bills will pile up all our things will grow dust, and our landlords will kick us out but i'm at home when i'm the little spoon i feel at home when i'm yr little spoon
a tiny sound crawls in the ear fly in a web buzz buzz buzz buzzing reflection steals a little more each time the light in your eyes is so dull buzz buzz buzz buzzing spider's sucking all the blood away always in circles taking the bronze at chasing our tails left in the dust by our plans spinning in circles the landscape melts to a cardboard backdrop for a school play always in circles we all fall down
there's something hidden in the gold beneath your skin glowing waves crash against each move you make like it's trying to escape the way you look it hurts forever a pain I always seek out somewhere distant that gold will shine many years from now
Emma 04:59
it can't be comfortable to sleep that way your back is bent, eyes half open in limbo emma, don't grow up 'cuz something evaporates, and floats up into space it orbits around, but never comes back down emma, don't grow up the moon is made from the dust of things we've loved
the sun rises, we soak it in dig out of the nest we've made pull the flowers from their graves nerves crawl thru us like vines hair grows long and wild our blood's filled with sap - sticky and sweet ripened fruit ready to burst grab everything 'til our hands are full but we fall apart when autumn comes bits of skin crunch under our feet as we walk hearts roll onto snow, tiny avalanche slowly dissolving we are nothing more than winter skeletons we can't move so we just wait hibernation brings strange dreams they slip into the spaces we've chiselled away after everything is lost, we find comfort some way hoping that when the snow melts, the landscape looks the same but we fall apart when autumn comes bits of skin crunch under our feet as we walk hearts roll onto snow, tiny avalanche slowly dissolving we are nothing more than winter skeletons we can't move so we just wait we can't move so we just wait
Dandelions 04:04
a shady place, a bank safe camouflaged lock and key hide and seek one, Mississippi, two... not enough mystery, it lacks a certain I don't know coughing up a seed caught in the back of your throat with broken stems at your feet wishes blown away never float back can't let it show it's got to get some sun another way sit back and ask, is this all that's grown?
Unsettle 04:00
rotting flesh, sequences of agony never viewed clearly dried up hope has a familiar ring a lasting grief seems to be the thing that is the trend this year why do we fight when it's just easier to give up (all I know is I'm gonna get left behind) don't give up, make some noise freedom doesn't present itself in a timely or convenient fashion push this reality to forefront, and let it become a decision to stand up (all I know is I'm gonna get left behind) if you're fed up, then make a choice please stand up when told otherwise
Gravity 04:31
always weightless, tied to a stick illusion of flying like swimming in the shallow end, toes scraping the ground but that's okay, I'm afraid of heights never know which steps to take if i let go, i'll just float away until there's no more air to breathe
tonight I bet there'll be lights writing in the sky and all the shapes and things we see take a billion years to make this patient architecture has stood for so long but we know it will all be gone some day
Capricorn 03:29
memories from years ago shine brighter than all the time that have crept away since then but i'll carry them to the end they still mean everything you'll always be running wild faster than i'll ever keep up but I still see you there our friendship's a starry sky exploding suns are slow motion fireworks tracing lines that always lead back here
and it's strange to think about the things you think about when you try to fall asleep but you can't everything's so slow in the dark everything moves so slow in the dark and those things you kept inside your head never stay where you left them but i guess it's always for the best everything's so slow in reverse everything moves so slow in reverse
feeling like a lunatic screaming the end is near (abandon ship) but warnings are the most mistrusted sentences "abandon ship" falls on deaf ears let's build a rocket ship leave this mess behind and light years will pass us by caught in comets, side by side GET ME OUT OF HERE
