Track Name: Some Thoughts I Had
on a cold day
you complain to me
that your life's not panning out
"I guess I wanted everything to work out perfectly"
from the back row
you can watch things unfold
and no one has to know
swallow your medicine
your headache's coming back with a vengeance
I can't remember my dreams
when I drag myself out from the sheets
and the sun outside is barely alive
and I can't bear to open my eyes
but at least I've got you my by side
Track Name: I Don't, Do You?
I am completely right
and you are wrong
because my quasi-intellectual bullshit proves it
at least that's what I tell myself
when I can't deal with someone else
and now that I've said it
I realize it's pathetic
I want you to know I'm making an effort
I'm trying my best to give it a rest
cause maybe it's ok
to not have all the answers
I'm sure I don't
Track Name: You Know
I feel but don't show it
and I'm pretty sure you already know it
but just in case you don't, I'm telling you
so let's walk around our neighborhood
and talk about which houses would be good
to hang out in with our friends
my question to you
is will you see this through
to the end?
and I'm hoping you say yes
I'm flawed and you know it
Track Name: The Blood That Came From My Shin Was Dark Red
remember the day
I jumped and missed the stage
and busted my leg?
remember the time
I misread the signs
and made a fool of myself?
my scratches and scars
don't indicate that my life's been hard
just that I've made some stupid mistakes
should I make up a story to prove I'm not boring?
I doubt you'd fall for that
