Track Name: Ritual
sword in your head
is it still there
climb into my bed
and show me where

testing the tie we made back then
holding the weight of everything

is it so strong
such a thin line
tracing a map inside my mind

eyes roll back, sigh
i gave you something you wanted
afterwards, cry
ritualistic and haunted

in nervous looks
and brushing arms
at jesse's house
with racing hearts

blue lights and ghosts
and dripping sweat
i hope it isn't over yet

we're in my room
listening to shrines
you feel it now
tighten the binds

eyes roll back, sigh
i gave you something you wanted
afterwards, cry
ritualistic and haunted
Track Name: Silver Bullets
momentarily out of body
a drop in a pool
silver bullets on the rug and
i'm inside her mouth
hurts but i'm taking it well

impulsive
don't want to know what i said
the truth will leak
onto my shirt, later
in privacy
where you won't see me

a footprint
on a lunar surface will always stay
my sense of
double consciousness gets in the way
Track Name: Splintered
distance between
a big thumbs up
it was a gun
feed me
i want to be strong

lips to a hole in your neck
bodies divided by sunlight
and shadows of blinds

tastes sweet
smooth in my hands
i feel like i could die
protect me, though i can be cold

lips to a hole in your neck
bodies divided by sunlight
and shadows of blinds
Track Name: Strange Guilt
i'm just conceited or i noticed something
about the way you look at me
when I'm talking about
something stupid
i shouldn't be nervous
did i really see this or am i imagining
it's happened before

i wrote a song about you and you know it
one night in the winter came home from a party
we were joking around and you said
that you wished you could fuck me

i hope no one reads this and finds out how stupid i am

if you knew me at all you would know
i remember
if i knew you at all i would know
that you don't
if you know me at all you would know
i remember
if i knew anything at all i would know
nothing matters

all of the little things to me are important
get forgotten
Track Name: Golden Our
early summer i'm home
golden our
a little less golden when i'm alone
we're still in love
they'll keep in touch
i'm older now and it's all just too much
i called your phone and it rang

if you loved someone else
would you lie to me and tell me
that you've never thought about it
would you break my heart
and pretend you didn't feel it
as if we gently drifted apart

goodbye june and now
leave like i did
i'll be fine i'll get by i just don't know how
happy birthday seventeen
its hard to get on with my life when
i don't know what any of this means

if you loved someone else
would you lie to me and tell me
that you've never thought about it
would you break my heart
and pretend you didn't feel it
as if we gently drifted apart

you know it's true
it would tear you up inside and i would
desperately cling to you
your wrists would burn at the thought
Track Name: They Them Theirs
peak around the corner
i'm not going in there
for fear of hands cupped around ears and
i see people staring at me

commended for our accepting
society then why do i feel like
there's something wrong with my body
i wish i was like everyone else
i have the right to get married now
which means all of you can stop caring now

but it still hurts when i walk
into a party and notice somebody asking,
do you see that person over there
the short one with short brown hair
i'm not quite sure but i'm assuming
it's a guy 'cause of the clothes
he looks a little young for this place
let's go let him know
Track Name: Karaoke Scene
i want you to touch me
i want you to feel what i feel
are you alright
are you

i know it's been some time
it takes a while to make a mile

well boys don't cry
let's just go home
you'll stay the night
and i'll stare at my phone

so grey the sky when i look at you
are you alright
you don't look so
the bluest eyes in texas
are haunting me tonight

there's something in the water here
and everywhere
it pulls the tears

well boys don't cry
let's just go home
you'll stay the night
and i'll stare at my phone
