Track Name: Romper
Track Name: Bathtub
the best of us never made it to paper
visions of wolves are drowning in my head
i wake up and wish for grey
the rest of us never made it to later
im dying for the night i lost my head
you made it go away
buried in this hole that youve dug inside of me
Track Name: Another Sun
again i'm writing in circles spinning rings around my brain
no more voyages to saturn and the song remains the same
i hope you're feeling smaller when you're looking at the stars
no more blood clots in the water and no more heaven in our hearts
i know i'm feeling smaller cuz i've been grasping for those stars
there's no ignition in the engine because i can't find a way to spark
