Track Name: I'm Not Here
ideas and feelings
feel fixed
but they move forward in time
so I might have lied
despite what I just said, I'll tell you
how it seems to be
how it seems to me
if I don't wake up
wake me up
I might be wrong but it's all I have to go on
Track Name: #willyipcome
there's not a thing that I can think of
to say to those that I see
who are somewhat acquainted to me
not quite friends, just people I've met
thought things would be different
but I'm standing alone again
I haven't changed
I'm still the same quiet kid I've always been
I just clam up
when I'm around too many new faces and names
so help me out
I wanna be you friend
I haven't changed
I'm still the same quiet kid I've always been
thanks to anyone who's ever talked to me without making me say something first
Track Name: Again
why am I so tired?
stopped chasing the dream
don't do much of anything
I'm not getting better
years go by
and mark my decline
dark outside
makes me want to close my eyes and forget
what could have been
will I see you again?
I'm counting on it
but I didn't even try my best
will I see you again?
Track Name: OK
dead rat, half eaten
put it in a plastic bag
bag goes into the trash
go to work after that
there's nothing else to do
no alternative lifestyle for you
trash and leaves
circling mindlessly
in my driveway everyday
but I feel ok
today is a good day
nobody's listening to me
cause I have nothing to say
Track Name: Deconstruction
excuses used
to ice the bruise
on my ego
sound stupid
when I review
that I'm not that smart
I'm not an artist
I do nothing memorable
and I play no part in this
so grab my hand
and squeeze it tight
if no one else cares
then that's all right
it matters to me tonight
but I'm not that smart
I'm not an artist
I do nothing memorable
and I play no part in this
when deconstructed
there's nothing left around me
there's nothing
