Track Name: Dead Dove
Goodbye for now
I don't that you would call
likely won't see you at all.
And please forgive me
I never thought it'd end this way
I thought that you and I were okay

We're in the same room,
but I can't find you
So I'll write it on the wall

If this is what makes you happy
and if it makes you feel at home
if it'll get you through the day
don't change, stay the same

Please forgive me
I know that this is hard
and it's tearing us apart
my heart is heavy
but I know that you'll be fine
and you'll always be in my mind

We're in the same room
but I can't find you
So I'll write it on the wall

If this is what makes you happy
and if it makes you feel at home
if it'll get you through the day
don't change, stay the same.

If this is what you need

If this is what makes you happy
don't change, stay the same.
Track Name: Placate
Should I just tell you what you want to hear?
Or should I spill my guts and come out with the truth?
You know I meant it.

My pictures are falling down
and I can't keep them around here anymore.
They're just like me, I keep breaking down
and I can't keep coming around you anymore.

Come pick me up, it's so damn hard to stand without a crutch
on my two feet. I need some help, it's not your fault my life's here on the asphalt.

Your pictures keep falling down
and I can't keep them around here anymore.
They're just like me, I keep breaking down
and I can't keep coming around here anymore.

How many times did I cross that line
and forget what it means to follow through?

I don't blame you.
Track Name: Tired
I found your shirt
the one you thought you left in Boston
it smelled like you
a scent that I'm no longer used to.
I read your note
the one you left on my front porch
I let it go
because I don't want to live here anymore.

You got out
of my car and walked the front steps
to your front door
you looked back
but I drove off
repeating "I can't take this anymore."

You called me up three weeks later
said you were scared and all alone
"I can't take another night here,
we shouldn't spend this night alone."

We spent the whole drive back in silence
counting the street signs as we drive
we both knew what we were getting into
but not how it would fuck our lives.

Where'd you go?
Where's the one I thought I used to know?
Where've you been?
I haven't heard from you since then.

I'm getting tired of losing sleep
When all I'm doing is losing faith

After everything was over
all I owned covered in dust
I still thought about the nightmare
I still thought about an "us."
Track Name: Anchorage
Perfectly content with mediocrity
stumbling through commitment issues.

I feel like
it's black and white
but all you see is grey.

Please tell me about "me"
and who you think I am
Because you've been there
but you can't stay here

I never would've guessed
in years and months and days
that you would leave like this
but I'd still be okay

Please tell me about "me"
and who you think I am
because you've been there
but you can't stay here

I feel like

I feel like it's black and white
and all you see is grey.
Track Name: Bottlenecked
I'll see you around
I'm sure this won't hurt tomorrow
at least for you
because you've got options and a future.

I'm lost and I'm broken
it's like I woke up from a bad dream
and everything spoken
doesn't make sense or mean anything

Where are you now?
Still hanging around that same old town?
How did that work out,
being disappointed and worn down?

I'm lost and I'm broken
it's like I woke up from a bad dream
and everything spoken
doesn't make sense or mean anything

Wasted, I'm over this
blinded and pushed out in the dark
hopeless, alone again
afraid to finally make my mark.
