Track Name: Dwell
I've carried you inside my mind
For my entire life
Head in my hands
Weighed down
Any lower and I'd be in the ground
I'm wasting breath
And I'm wasting space
Doubled over from the pain
I'd give anything not to feel this way

Nobody gives a shit
Unless you feel like them
And I'm starting to think
That you never cared
I feel gutted So much for friendship
But that's how it always is
You'll leave
And I'll dwell on it

I still reside in this broken home
I can cover up the cracks in the walls
But there's no fixing the nights
I have spent alone
I've carried you inside my mind
For my entire life
Head in my hands
Weighed down
Any lower and I'd be in the ground

Misery loves company
And I'm here to stay
I can never say what I mean
Cause my anxiety is a conscious being
It's got me by the throat
Strangling
It's fucking suffocating

I know we all die alone
But I didn't know that living would be this cold
Track Name: Haunt
You still haunt me like you used to
You're the weight on my shoulders
But it's different than before
Cause I've gotten older

I watched your shadow roam around the room all night
Dimly lit by the cloud covered moonlight
I prayed in silence that I might get some sleep
Cause the bags under my eyes
Expressed the words I couldn't speak
I saw your ghost out of the corner of my eye
Darting past the window frame
And I still have that feeling in the corner of my mind
Maybe I fucked up and kept the words I should've said

You still haunt me like you used to
You're the weight on my shoulders
But it's different than before
Cause I've gotten older
You still haunt me like you used to
And it's the same now
Hold me under
Inhale water
Watch me drown

So I'll stay inside
And waste every day away
The sun was never meant for me
Maybe now I'll finally get some sleep
And rest my tired eyes to the sound of exploding arteries

For as long as I can remember
We've kept our fingers perfectly entwined
Your apparition hand in mine It was cold
But at least it was constant
When nothing else in my life was
I've watched all the color fade away
And the knots in my stomach take their place
I wish I could speak up
But with you there's only silence

I'm so afraid of the silence
Why can't I hear anything?
Why can't I feel anything?
Track Name: Gravestones
Everything I love turns to gravestones
Just know that I miss you
It's so cold, all alone
Everything I love turns to gravestones
I miss you
And it’s so cold all alone

Everything I say
Falls short anyway
I'll bite my tongue
And close my mouth
I won't cry
Till the blood comes out

I feel locked out
From the inside
With no room to breathe
And I'm out of time
This home I've built
Is no shelter now
A vacant soul
Tear me down

I can feel it again
There's something wrong in my head
I won't go back to where I've been
Cause the Florida heat
Still burns my fucking skin

Cause I'm just a selfish prick
I deserve this
I'm the kid who's always sick
Still sucking down cigarettes
I made you a promise
That I couldn't keep
Cause I had to work on fixing me
Maybe next year I’ll be better
Maybe next year I'll quit
Track Name: Ghost
Like the largest ships at sea
We twist and turn
Buckling under treacherous weather
Leaking
And I'm not sure if this vessel can take much more
But we'll stay afloat like we always have
Somehow
And we rushed down below the main deck
Seeking some kind of safety
It was pitch black
But I found comfort in your breathing
Wrapped in darkness till morning
And If we hold each other tight
You can cry in my arms
And I'll run my fingers through every strand of your hair
I can't promise things will be alright
But we'll be together
We'll be together
And we'll write down our feelings
And fold up these parts of our lives into neat little squares
Cherish the words written on each line of both papers
Hold them close to revisit
When things are better
I still have that recurring dream
Where we drown in our sleep
Always awoken to the feeling of your limbs wrapped around me
Like ropes binding my hands and feet
And I'd stay up all night
My eyes trace your outline
And waited for the waves to take my life
I waited for the waves to take my life

Like a beautiful mirage you were gone like a ghost that haunts
A ghost that lingers close by to watch everything unfold

Shipwrecked but not broken
Not lost, but never to be found
The light peaked through the clouds
Where my head resides most days
And I watched you walk along the edge of the rocks
Swaying back and forth
The light bouncing off the tree tops
Silhouetting your figure
And just like that

Like a beautiful mirage you were gone like a ghost that haunts
A ghost that lingers close by to watch everything unfold
In silence
