Track Name: Prepared
Illusion of getting somewhere, feeling repaired.
Better off being prepared than ever truly being there.
Track Name: Luscious Green
There’s no taking care of anything, the grass outside is luscious green.
Birds outside they sing to me, come to call and fly away.

So far away.
You’re looking so far away.

While everyone’s invited me, there’s so much here, a mess to clean.
Overwhelming energy; pour it into everything.

Must be the day I’m due.

Carry hurt so easily. My inside voice is crumbling.
Wish I could speak with clarity and be much more deserving.
Track Name: April Showers and May Flowers
Have you been watching me as I 
pass you on the city streets? 
No I never see you coming,
I’m only daydreaming.

Can you still count all of the 
people who have gone away?
 Like I don’t notice anything,
and nobody goes missing.

They finally found me.
Am I feeling ready? 
Through the nails on the door
and the branches on the tree.
And the hour is calling me. 
Am I feeling ready?
Through the nails on the door 
and the branches on the tree.
Savour me.

Have you been marking your way
 as you move along the forest floor? 
Is it nice there among the trees? 
Is it nice there away from me?

Have you been watching me as I 
pass you on the city streets? 
I was only protecting you. 
You don’t get the help you need.

Can you still count all of the
people who have gone away? 
Like I don’t notice anything, 
and nobody goes missing.

I’m only daydreaming, 
is it nice there among the trees?

You don’t get the help you need
 when nobody goes missing.
Track Name: Good Company
Look at you;
fell asleep in the waiting room
dreaming so far away from home
always having so much fun alone
with everyone depending on you.
Track Name: Mollified
Take a walk out in the sun through the long and empty streets.
Somewhere quiet enough to breathe; take in the scenery.

So much time to be alive.
Ain’t it nice to be inside?
With no need to get ride;
fell asleep under lamp light.

The hardwood mollified.

Depression in the passenger side. Things start to go awry.
Fears - they all come to life. Didn’t get no sleep at night.

Hope I can feel alive.
Numbness and cruel hate.
Just need to get outside.
My aura diminishing.
Numb in oblivion,

The hardwood mollified.

Numb hands and blue face.
Numbness and cruel fate.
Numbness till doomsday.
Numbness and blueface.
Numbness and negative waves.
Numbness and blueface.
Numb in a new way.
Track Name: Blades of Grass
The light seems to pour from your eyes.
How could you have seen the signs?
The weight of my blood on your hands.
You could wash them out, I hope you do.

You could see straight through me if you wanted to.
If you had a clue. Know I’ve been blessed by you.

While the air in my room is feeling thinner, I’ll punish my chest for the life I’ve missed.

You could see straight into me if you wanted to.
If you had a clue. Always blessed by you.

Told I’m no good at heights,
but the future is bright if I put the effort in.

With blades of grass by me.

Hands are shaky now, food is almost ready, waiting for you.
Candles light the house, music in our ears that’s when I knew you.
How will you know me?
Why don’t you come out? All of your friends are here,
they want to see you.
Ideas that bother you, they just aren’t true,
you don’t have anything to lose.

So just dance with me.
You were a friend to me.
Track Name: Unprepared
Promised I’d be going somewhere, even impaired.
Never quite feeling prepared and never truly being there.
Illusion of getting somewhere, feeling repaired.
Better off being prepared than ever truly being there.

It helps sometimes to stay away.
It hurts sometimes to stay awake.
It helps sometimes to stay away.
It hurts sometimes to stay awake.
