Track Name: crisis
i am not your crisis
i am not your head to toe
i am not a small palmed shot in the dark goddamn
not an overall secret enrobed
as i freeze up solid
and the air sucks out
plain and tall, yes
did i even deserve it
you're all speed and i'm thinning it out

and breakage is a thing and it comes on fast
i just need to lie down and you just need to react
Track Name: salt
and you, you're always broke and breaking
and me, i run around
drop off, get sick, get caught up in
a house you never asked for
and my hands are years behind you now
my brain's like yours it's falling out
oh no

and blue was made for you but you'll lock it up
and break your twenty percent in two
while the basement floods and what can you do
you make the calls and go to bed
and i keep it calm
you watch what you say
never again, okay
Track Name: great care
on par with an earthquake
like maybe a seven or eight
i'm sick of this sleepless shit
you're gutless
and they say it's all downhill from here
it's down, down, down

and now you're better
as i slowly roll up both my sleeves and say
so you're welcome
as the earth just shakes and shakes and shakes and
slowly seeps out and into the red
and you're cozied up now with a few good friends
her private hell spread out instead
but it's a small town so go right ahead

and it's a brick of a job to do it all and call it off
and skirt around this place
and how do you tell the person you've been sleeping with
that you're floating up above them and a little to the left
you just don't

and now i'm quiet
as i think of all the places you won't go
but good to see you
though you tour cuz you can't stand to be at home
and spent and scraped out thin
don't rock the boat
how do you tell the person you've been sleeping with
you just don't
Track Name: melt
there are things i'd like to say to you
but now i know i can't remember
things i'd like to say to you
to wash away the now or never

i lace up my ties to you
get caught lay down and sink on through
to what gives out to what's at risk
to who i keep up with
Track Name: crisis pt. 2
& i am amber stone
& you are a wire
& you go down go down go down go down
& we're all so tired
there are things to do
that we can't do yet
there are things ahead
can i scream she said

& it makes a person wonder what useful is
when all i wanna do is drag you down here
& stack it up against my white wash walls
i can sleep through anything at all

& over & over everything sits still
& i'll make the room quiet i swear i will

& i can spine it all away i've got some good insulation
& you fall asleep on the car ride home
Track Name: shellshock
i'ma opt out of every word you've said to me
disappear into the lawn, you know the one
it's just getting green
inner goth mourns the snow and insides
inner goth wears the blackest clothes
inner ear pounds and i won't listen
don't take care of anything anymore

motorcycle drive-by gets us soft inside these roads
winding when i couldn't be alone
saved by the head of humid sloth and then
give me hell about my friends again
you're a summer suck at best, oh

and i heard you're doing fine now
yeah i heard you got divorced
and i heard of all the girls who told you no

when someone slashed your bike tires i did not know what to think
and then i left most rooms when you came in them
Track Name: south
better off, better off, better pack it up soon
flown south like birds and girls do
high and losing time just watching the trees move
and i've got no time to come and see you

and it's late, but i'll wait, just in case

better off, better off, better pack it up soon
and our points were shit and we'll drown in this too
at mercy or worse i just wanna work
on crossing over and under and through
to the rest of the world
you're a peculiar girl

and what do we do
Track Name: champagne
