Track Name: been thinkin'
Been thinkin’ bout the time I have and where I wanna be
Has the consonance in everything been all your score?
And in February before you leave
Will it fall silent?

Call it a day, kid

Been thinkin’ bout the Autumn day that wrapped you up in me
Did the dissonance shake silence into warmth among those leaves?

And in February before you leave
Will I feel that silence?

Call it a day, kid
Track Name: extra mile
Do you still go the extra mile
Cause it’s not crowded there?

Down the horse trails
To the waist high water
Where I was coming up

Where Dalton skimmed a frisbee
Spinning teardrops
Tying bows of rain

Well I was coming up
We were growing up

All the time away
What were we running from?

Been holding on to how I felt instead of how I'm feeling
Been holding on to how I give instead of how I give in
Give in
Give up
Been holding on to all the places I called home

Do you still go the extra mile
Cause its not crowded there?
Or do you make it out at all?
I never make it out no more

Cause I moved 500 miles and it’s too crowded here
And I am coming down
I am growing up.


All the time away
Track Name: mahal kita
I’m so afraid of losing it
The gentle ghost you left with me
That held me close as I lost my way
I
I’m all that I need
But would the dream still wait up for me?
No

On my way back home
Caught in transit
Left to my elation

On the morning you cried to me
I felt the life spill right out of you
Held my hand as we lost the day.
Ma,
You’re all that you need
But you stay
You live
You learn how to love
Cause you know
You need it to change

But I need it to rain
I need it to rain

On my way back home
Caught in transit
Left in my elation

I’m so afraid of losing it.
Track Name: aurora
Lost in the fever of
Rearranging my behaviors
Like a waning moon

How I wish I were with my friends
I used to think
I was my own design
Now I know
I’m the days
Reflection

Where the table
Runs forever

I’ll see you in a while
Track Name: graying
Heard they threw a party for you

Even filled up balloons in your arteries
to keep you from being a memory

Ma colored her hair
But I could hear her feet
spinning the plastic wheel of a cold IV

Just graying
Just aging

Do you remember when you told me,
“someday I would miss the small things?”

Some days come too soon

Would you miss all you wanted to see in me?

Watched you giving up on Christmas

Kept filling a glass
As an effigy
You had meant to outlast
and pass down to me

So Ma colored her world
In your reveries
like watered down ideals
bleeding entropy

Are we waiting?
Am I waiting?

Do you remember when you told me’
“I could be anything I want to?”

I wanted to be you
Track Name: empathy
Speaking
Volumes
But I’m feeling
Quiet

Is everything under the sun still sacred?
Has all of my empathy abdicated?
That feeling of learning a word, a meaning
And hearing it all of the time;
The fleeting prose

Leaving me up to my own devices,
There’s something about it that kills me softly while
I’m inconsequentially spinning my own web
Catching the pollen and anything that’s left


Wouldn’t it be nice to find a place
Your sadness was a privilege you could play in?
Where
Everything under the sun is kin
Everything under the sun is sacred

(It’s always been right in front of you)
Track Name: jejune
If all of my fear roots in you
Well why ghost the thought when it haunts me?

Been digging at a hue
A sedative ephemera I fed
Jejune

How could you?

To see us in
All of the light
With all of these things that you wanted
Would you burn it down?
And was it that bad?

Jejune
How could you?

Could you
Long for your source
Just like I do?

Would you?

Could you
Get well?
Could you
Get well?

Could you
Get well?
Would you?

How could you?
Caught in a lie
And the lie’s catching up
How could you?
Track Name: mauve rinsed
Trying to learn how to trust when everything Feels good
I didn’t have to do that
Before 25

Can animals resent their names?
I’d like to think that I’m not yet tame

I’m still a winner in the woods by myself
I’m still a curious, happy, learning, Loving...


Trying to learn how to trust
That I was looking out for you
Do you remember, in Japan
Calling me a mess?
I told myself that you were right
Watched you do the same to her

If I wasn’t told what I was would I know it?
Maybe I resent your name
I’m headed back to where my name’s from

Where I’m still a winner in the woods by myself
I’m still a curious, happy, learning, Loving...
Track Name: beauty, again
Hey
Get up now
I found a reason to live
Hey
Get up now
I’m feeling like falling apart
Will it last?

Will I find beauty again
In this life?

Hey
Get up now
I found some reasons to change
Hey
get up now
The feeling of falling apart never lasts

Will I find beauty again
In this life?

Well,
I found beauty again
In this life.

I found beauty again
In this life.
