Track Name: Recurring Dream
I have been so bland
it all feels like a long dream I had
and I was stuck in idle despite
how badly I wanted to fight
I kept having this recurring dream
that I would be driving
and suddenly I couldn't see
I was just waiting to crash
Track Name: Folding
tonight, I realized
while you looked into my eyes
I was alone in feeling so alone

are we waving a moment dissipating
or am I just folding, building a wall so you'll leave me?

tonight, I realized
while you were talking from behind your eyes
I was alone in feeling so alone

are we waving a moment dissipating
or am I just folding, building a wall so you'll leave me?

tonight, I realized while you looked into my eyes I was alone
Track Name: This Is Not a Test
if you want to go, you better just set on straight
if you want to know, you better just go look it in its face
cause we've been spinning around in a dance we know so well
and you smile all the while, and I'm in a full blown denial

this is not a test

if you're scared to go, well this is no time to feel safe
if you're scared to know, you better just go look it in its face
or the ghost you have inside, it will haunt the house you grew up in
and the ghost will mourn and cry for the would have, should have, could have been

this is not a test
Track Name: Inward Soul
You’re an inward soul
you like to stay in sometimes on friday nights
you like to watch movies,
sometimes projected behind your eyes
you don’t open up so easy
no, not as smooth as the others do
though you wish it so
though you wish it so
and nothing comes out right
when you keep half of you locked inside
no, no, no i don’t think you see me right
oh, I am so locked

there’s no need to be so serious tonight
there’s no need, no need to be so serious tonight
there’s no need to be so serious tonight
there’s no need, no need to be so serious tonight
so don’t

you’re an inward soul
you paint the inner walls of your mind
your heavy head will beg to pour
so you use your hands to make it light
and maybe someone will come through your door
maybe somebody can recognize
oh maybe someone will come through your door
do you recognize?
still you say,
I wish I was you
I wish I was more like you are
because I know when you’re amused
and I see how you usually are
and well, I don’t think you see me right
because I keep half of me locked inside
oh, no, no i don’t think you see me right
oh, I am so locked

there’s no need to be so serious tonight
there’s no need, no need to be so serious tonight
there’s no need to be so serious tonight
there no need, no need to be so serious tonight
there no need to be so serious
oh there’s no need to be so serious
oh there’s no need to be so serious
oh there’s no need
so don’t
Track Name: Haha Just Kidding
You said to open up and I was so reluctant
you said come on, just be honest
so I poured out like black ink
on your white shirt, now you have to wear it
and I wish it stayed where it belonged
because now I have to see it too
I think I said too much, oh

and what I said I can’t take back
but I remind myself that
the truth was better than to lie
because then well, what’s the point of life?
but the way you looked at me, oh
but the way you looked at me, oh
think I broke your heart oh no, no
it was so sad oh no, no

ha ha ha ha
I'm just kidding
ha ha ha
I'm just kidding
ha ha ha ha ha
I'm just kidding
ha ha ha

I tried to open up and I was so reluctant
if I step out of this body I fear I will lose boundaries
so I dwell in a shadowy place
where all the creatures know my face
and how they love when I am sad
oh, no, did I just say that?

what have I said, oh I digress
but are we making progress?
an endless loop inside my head
says no, yes, yes, no, yes, yes
and I bleed, I bleed, I bleed, I bleed,
I bleed, I bleed, I bleed, I bleed,
I bleed, I bleed, I bleed, I bleed,
I bleed, I bleed, I bleed, oh

ha ha ha ha
I'm just kidding
ha ha ha
I'm just kidding
ha ha ha ha ha
I'm just kidding
ha ha ha

you said to open up so I…

ha ha ha ha
I’m just kidding
ha ha ha
I'm just kidding
ha ha ha ha ha
I'm just kidding
ha ha hahaha…
ha ha ha
I'm just kidding
ha ha ha hahaha
I'm just kidding
oh, I'm just kidding
I wish I was kidding
ah, who am I kidding?
Track Name: Starry Eyes
oh, starry night
my starry eyes mist into my palms
and I don't know why

ahhh

oh, starry night
temporary high
pretty disguise
your charming light

ahhh

oh, starry night
my starry eyes
temporary high...
Track Name: A Denial
hoping, wishing, begging that you'll come back
I've been searching tapes and old photographs
to somehow have you here
and I wish I could have an ounce of that fear
that I used to hold but now I’m cold
and all I feel is sick, sick, sick and I'm sick of it
come breathe me all the life that I lack
ah, well I guess I’d breathe anything
if meant maybe you’d come back
it’s lonely, it’s lonely, it’s lonely in this storm
it’s lonely, it’s lonely here

hoping, wishing, begging to be brought back
I've been searching for a breath that will speak back
and just to have you here
would make me want to wish against death, I guess
come breathe me all the life I let pass
ah, I’ll breathe you all the ache that you lack
ahhhhhh!
it’s lonely, it’s lonely, it’s lonely in this storm
it’s lonely, it’s lonely here

where is my mind
where is my mind
where is my mind?
I hide you
I deny you
if I love you
then I'll fight you
hey, hey, hey, hey, hey, hey, hey, ahhhhhhh
hey, hey, hey
I’ll bleed it out
hey, hey, hey
I'll cry it out
hey, hey, hey
I'll bleed it out
hey, hey, hey
I'll cry it out
hey, hey, hey
I’ll bleed it out
hey, hey, hey
we’ll make it out
