Track Name: Sleep Deprivation
City lights burn into you like these days burn into me. Every eye is watching your move as you destroy everything. I haven't slept in days, everything has changed, and you are where I place the blame. May your shoulders be heavy and all of your nights, be lonely. May your shoulders be heavy, and all of your nights...lonely.
Track Name: Sandman
Copper in my veins. Mouth full of pennies. How much longer can I bite my tongue? This has gone on for far to long, bite my tongue. With knots in my stomach and sand in my eyes, I'm losing myself one limb at a time. This is eating me alive. With every step I take, I leave behind a piece of my mind and a fractured spine. With this tightrope tied to my chest, I am fighting to balance what is left. I'm being stalked by a man with a handful of sand. The demons I face are at his demand. The voices are talking in the back of my head, screaming the things that were left unsaid. I'm being stalked by a man with a handful of sand. The demons I face are at his demand. The voices are talking in the back of my head, screaming the things that were left unsaid. As and sandman lays to rest, with this rope tied to my chest, I'm fighting to catch my breath trying to balance what is left.

Track Name: Temple
Write these words. Spread these words. Feel her pulse within your hands. Weave her hair through the paper and hope your pen runs out of the ink that writes of the pain in your eyes. Write these words like her veins, spread these words like her veins. Feel her pulse within your hands, weave her hair through the paper. Hear her silence within these words, all she leaves is a whisper. Write these words like her veins, spread these words like her veins. Remember the letters that you never sent, the promises she never kept, hope that your pen runs out. Runs out.
Track Name: Chapter Six
Forcing your way into me, I'm slowly breaking at the seams. Investing myself in all the wrong places. Trying to fill your empty spaces, empty bed, empty dreams, open eyes, lack of sleep. I'm turning into you, I've never been so fucking scared. Slowly breaking at the seams, force your way into me. I can feel the pressure as I breathe. Force your way into me, I'm slowly breaking at the seams. Empty bed, empty dreams, open eyes, lack of sleep. Stop turning off the lights. Stop turning off the lights. I am lighting candles to keep you alive. Wasting time. I am wasting time, wasting my time lighting candles to keep you alive.
Track Name: Plaster
I'm spending my time writing about the days that I've survived. All the times that I have failed and how hard I've tried. These days are so fucking long. The hands on the clock move faster and faster, my hands are cracked and covered in plaster. Nine to five just trying to thrive, I am killing myself one day at a time. The drink in my cup flows from the vine that grows through my throat and into the sky. Ask me about the clouds in my mind, I'll tell you not to worry, I'm doing just find. My hands are cracked and covered in plaster.
Track Name: Beautiful Mouth (ft Melanie Boccabella)
Leaves toss in the wind like I do in my sheets. The seasons are changing and I'm losing sleep. Silence echos on the walls of my skull.
Track Name: Climate Change
Wishing for safety. Waiting for sanity, for the cracks in the ground, the things that make sense to me. Bring me the white out in the sky and my mind. I'll take this year one season at a time. The ice in the sky, like the blue in your eyes. Let the frost that you hide consume my insides. The leaves toss in the wind like I do in my sheets. The seasons are changing and I am losing sleep. Silence echos on the walls of my skull. Everyone is a letdown, including myself. The seasons are changing. Let's not focus on what used to be, let's focus on what is. Nothing makes sense to me, especially nights like this.
