Track Name: Sonder
I want so much but nothing at all
All at the same time

I want to be fucking loud
I want to be silent
All at the same time

I want to feel grief
I want to feel Joy

I am not a man
But merely a boy

I want world peace
I want to destroy

My words will never hold weight

I am merely a boy
Track Name: The Smallest Coffins Are The Heaviest
4:30 AM I wake up to a knock on the door
4:30 AM I wake up to a ring of a phone in the dark on the floor

An empty bed
An empty crib

In vacant eyes
You'll always live

Wake up for me
And tell me your dreams

I want to know what you dreamt about
all these month you've been asleep

Wake up for me

My mother cries her self to sleep
Keeps her up at night waiting for you to speak

I want to see your face again
Do you want to see mine?

Or are you waiting for me,
on the other side?
To tell you "I'm sorry, I couldn't save you life."

And my voice still shakes
And it palpitates

But you cant see
Just what you've done to me
Track Name: Gun
You've been walking in your sleep
Do you dream you can run

You can't run away from me
I'm just a kid with a gun

And I've been dying to tell you
All the things I couldn't say last year

Colors they burst
on a spectrum, I beg for lack of light

And where's my youth?
I can never get it right

How do I loathe thee?
Let me count the ways.

Weight in the words that you spit
and i felt home held in the space between
your calloused finger tips

And i became sunk, In a body still weak.
I held it in for months but I make promises I cant keep

Is my body worth it?
Is my body worth the wait, for fate?

This may be the only chance I'll ever get to be whole
The closer I'll ever know

I want to be saved
But I'm not brave

Words of regret to show
This may be the only chance I'll ever get to be whole.

Give me gravity
I need new air to breathe
You speak in such brevity's
And I've got all the space that I need

(Here I am)

Give me gravity
I need new air to breathe
You speak in such brevity's
And I've got all the space that I need

How do I loathe thee?
Let me count the ways.
Track Name: II (Featuring Matt Mascarenas of Reviver)
Cut like two wholes
No longer mended to bind

Cut in two halves
The body, and the wandering mind

Split these two hearts
Hers and mine

Split these two hearts
Hers and mine

I see the trap set in the corner of my eye
the webs you weaved that choked me in
and tangled becomes I

Sitting trapped here till the sun falls to the sea
the stitching on my clothes brings me close
oh, the webs that you have weaved.

Scattered across the bedroom the set trap captures me
Waiting for your venom to pierce my skin
you bring me in

so you can finally feast

Split in two
like the once swaying tree

Split the way moses
Aptly parted the sea

Split like divisions
We stick like lines to the street

Divided like creatures
who lose track of our feet

Detached, we stray too far from where
we're shown

Two hearts led to the divide
But only one led me home

Our love is greater than us.
love never meant to stay leaving us an empty shell.
Detached we stray too far from where we're shown.
two hearts divided, only one will make it home.

Only one will make it home

I hope you understand
I have to go

I guess I don't know my own strength
Track Name: Resident
I've been in my head trying to talk it out
I'm losing myself
Give me something to talk about

I breathe in
Take it slow

I want a good heart
I want a good heart

I want to be beautiful

And I loved you
And I loved you
And I loved you
And I loved you

I worry about you
I worry for you, love

I worry about you
I worry for you, love

I don't want to be anywhere else
I don't feel anything else

A mighty abyss that crowns my existence

A mighty abyss
Track Name: Honey
Honey please,

Your voice, your laugh is haunting me
and I can't breath

I beg for you to comfort me
Till i can't sing anymore

Honey please,

I walk into a dim lit room
and on your bed

I beg of you take me instead

The respirator fills your lungs
and I can say I've had enough

I've had enough

Grow out your friends
Run away from your hearts ache

I just want to feel significant

And forget the fear
That you'll die alone

I've been waiting here
For you to come home
