Sleep It Off 03:14
I was once where you are Lost abroad in the loneliest way from you I could keep it all in Just enough to make it look seamless now I sleep it, I sleep it I sleep it all off now I take it, I break it I will it away from me I sleep it, I sleep it I sleep it all off But I’m gone I could hide from the stares Make myself blend in so carelessly Fall asleep at the wheel Just pretend that there’s nothing wrong with this I sleep it, I sleep it I sleep it all off now I take it, I break it I will it away from me I sleep it, I sleep it I sleep it all off But I’m gone

Fuck You 03:02
I’m gonna take me down to the riverside I’m gonna rest my head by the water’s deep You’re gonna shelter me til my sins are cleansed I’m gonna rest my head til my body’s dead You’re gonna wish the sight of me be gone I’m gonna grant your wish gonna pack my car I’m gonna leave this town with my own two hands Ain’t no part of me wanna stay up there Oooooh Oooooh Now the moon is rising over window pane And I haven’t been to sleep for days If you love me hell my lord I need you now I ain’t got none left to make me stay Fuck you I can’t get loose I don’t understand it Wreck me strike me down Just to let me feel You can save me or break me now But I won’t stay I don’t know if I’ll make it through another day Fuck you I can’t get loose I don’t understand it Wreck me strike me down Just to let me feel You can save me or break me now But I won’t stay I don’t know if I’ll make it through another day

Took my fall I took it all There wasn’t much left to restore You tell Peter I’ll tell Paul I never meant to make that fall So I walked in unknown lands Threw myself to stranger’s hands I told him I told it all I always wanted to be more I never wanted anything like this I never wanted anything like this There was freedom in the sound Of breaking hearts and wounded pride You told me you told it all Oh look just what you made me do I never wanted anything like this I never wanted anything like this

The Wild 04:29
Take your whole life bring it to me The river knows best I cannot lie Questions so real haunt your own feet Stretch out your hands call to the sea Depart from me love and wash your own feet Of things we have known and know love’s defeat Leave me your hand and I’ll leave you mine Questions so real run wild with the time Take me to the wild call me to the sea Make my heart mild for the questions of grief Don’t need no show, don’t need no shoes Got me a wild one me and my man Oh to know you love I cannot Only know the song of the bird she knows Questions so real run through my head Won’t be long now til I am dead Keep me alive til I can know truth Deep at the feet at the old widow’s hand Take me to the wild call me to the sea Make my heart mild for the questions of grief Don’t need no show, don’t need no shoes Got me a wild one me and my man

You and I go down to the river Into where I can see things clearly, clearly We wait for weeks (da da da, da da da) And wander on (da da da, da da da) And you know I (da da da, da da da) I can be strong (da da da, da da da) But I was waiting To make a case (da da da, da da da) And see you go (da da da, da da da) You were always on my mind, always on my mind You were always on my mind, always on my mind You were always on my mind, always on my mind You were always on my mind, always on my We made our oath down at the river Took my weakest self and dove in carelessly, carelessly I wait for me (da da da, da da da) To be myself (da da da, da da da) But in my youth (da da da, da da da) I lost my wealth (da da da, da da da) But I was waiting To make a case (da da da, da da da) And wander on (da da da, da da da) You were always on my mind, always on my mind You were always on my mind, always on my mind You were always on my mind, always on my mind You were always on my mind, always on my Way back, I held you back Way back, I held you back Way back, I held you back Way back, I held you back You were always on my mind, always on my mind You were always on my mind, always on my mind You were always on my mind, always on my mind You were always on my mind, always on my

Hands 02:56
There’s an end to all these stories But I’ll never tell I could wander endless oceans And never break the spell You know I never wanted To be caught this deep Neon lights and blaring secrets Made the crime so sweet Just because my hands are small and broken Doesn’t mean I’m fit to kill a man When you know you’ve got to break away I’ll woo you Took me in and closed the curtains I may call me too Let it go beyond my conscious There’s a useless clue Your life was never meant to Wrestle with these lines Cross the floor beyond all reason And I’ll do the time Just because my hands are small and broken Doesn’t mean I’m fit to kill a man When you know you’ve got to break away I’ll woo you

I don’t know if I’ll ever feel right My thoughts feel like bullets in this fight And my blood ran cold as the words leaked out Please don’t hold me to this What are you even fighting for If you can’t even see who you’re swinging at? What are we even fighting for If you can’t even see who you’re swinging at? Take your time to find your way back home You may find you’re fighting all alone Take your time to settle on your way Hit the breaks and let it fade away You read something I wrote You said it was all shit Didn’t know that I should’ve been running Til I came to wilderness What are you even fighting for If you can’t even see who you’re swinging at? What are we even fighting for If you can’t even see who you’re swinging at? Take your time to find your way back home You may find you’re fighting all alone Take your time to settle on your way Hit the breaks and let it fade away I love the way the dust seems to dance in the night And the breeze knocks the shit off the windows The thoughts that we breed are the spaces we have So I might do some rearranging This will be the memories that I carry today These will be the things that I dwell on You can’t believe what it’s like to be me I can’t assume to be you Take your time to find your way back home You may find you’re fighting all alone Take your time to settle on your way Hit the breaks and let it fade away

All Gone 03:10
So you say you’ve gotta go Far away from what you know We’ll be ok Find a way to make an end Bring a lover, bring a friend To make it through Then you know you’ve opened up your heart You find those little secrets from your past Then you know you’ve opened up that door They’ve all gone They’ve all gone They’ve all gone They’ve all gone See the meaning in a dream In the way you move your feet I know you care Grizzly ends and love’s defeat What decays and what repletes Will live again Then you know you’ve opened up your heart You find those little secrets from your past Then you know you’ve opened up that door They’ve all gone They’ve all gone They’ve all gone They’ve all gone They’ve all gone They’ve all gone now

I spy the water’s cosy sleep I dive with freedom only to be waking up again far away from you Ahoooo, Ahoooo I break the surface of this sea I brave the water’s only to be drinking from a cup that would plant my feet Ahoooo, Ahoooo And the river was deep And I wanted to leave So i went to sleep But the night claimed me And the river was deep And i begged to leave But the deep found me So I cursed my feet Into the waking dawn so fierce I break my promise Let the icy water take a hold and let me disappear Ahoooo, Ahoooo And the river was deep And I wanted to leave So i went to sleep But the night claimed me And the river was deep And i begged to leave But the deep found me So I cursed my feet Find me in my weakness Let me bear a likeness Into something sweeter This could be my brightness
