Track Name: all your friends are gone
and I don't wanna be like the kids that I grew up with
i can see so much more than fuckin my life away
and when we all get older and go our separate ways
I will be moving on a different pace

(chorus)
and after all the heart is gone,
tell me what are you left here with?
and after all your friends are gone,
your bottle and your smokes will keep you gone.

and I don't wanna see all the things you've seen.
i'd rather watch the beauty in everything.
and when we all get older and start our own lives,
don't you forget me and all those times we've had

(chorus)

and I always buy people flowers,
but I never get any in return.
talkin on the phone for hours.
Just talking on the phone for hours.

and as the night grows older
time begins to fade
laying on this trampoline
thinkin bout those days.

(chorus)

(chorus)
Track Name: sixteen
written sophomore year

all my friends are moving on
they're hitting the road, they'll be gone
and i'm just waiting here
12 more months till i disappear.

i don't know why i even care.

why this life, i wonder.
these family ties, this sonder.
our eyes are just cameras
remembering things that would turn to dust.

i don't know why i even care.

seems like all this time i've been preparing
for something more, unnecessary,
but I can't feel a thing.

the times are tough,
yeah they're getting there,
i don't have a job i don't have a share,

i don't even care
i don't even care

at my age i can't help notice,
everything we do is so out of focus.
our minds are filled with material things,
and lust and greed and stupid things.

and at sixteen i find it sad
that people spend their lives going mad
what, who, or why and where to go
and what to say and who to know.

are we going mad?
I'm just going mad.
Track Name: sappy shit
written senior year.
(we broke up shortly after)

you always want things to be perfect,
but that's not how it goes.

you told me that i'm precious to you,
thats all i need to know.

cuz i want you, and i like you,
and I wanna be there for you.
i want you, and i like you,
and i'm not going anywhere.

i don't care about anything they say.

and i'll tell them to keep our names out of their mouths.
it doesn't matter, no one believes them anyhow.

cuz i want you, and i like you,
and i'm gonna be there for you.
i want you and I like you,
i'm yours.

i don't care about anyone but you.
ooh.
Track Name: i cud treat u bettr
call me over for a chat,
we both know where our heads are at.

i could treat you better.
i could treat you better.

take a walk through the woods.
thinking of what could.
Track Name: still no flowers
and i don't mind that i'm wasting all my time on you.
and i don't care.
it just sucks, cuz you're never there.

the only thing i ask of you
is what you're saying be true,
cuz i, i've been worried.

and i don't mind that i'm wasting all my time on you,
cuz you're worth it.
and i don't care.
it just sucks cuz you're never there.

every morning i check my phone,
hoping i'd wake up to some stupid message.
but i don't
Track Name: goodbye forever
you didn't know any better than me
you tried so hard just to make me believe
and we were talking and i was just wanting to love you.

but it all changed so suddenly.
i was hoping you would never leave,
but you hurt me, you hurt me, you hurt me, you hurt me.

and I was so unprepared for this.
goodbye forever, you said that we can't be friends

now you're just a ghost that appears when you want some attention
and you know that you'll get it from me.

there are moments that replay in my head like a scene from some stupid romantic comedy.
and sometimes i try to give a shit when i realize just how unhappy you'll be
i wish i could go back in time or erase it from my memory.

there are moments i could live in forever,
so goodbye forever, goodbye forever.

you know that i could treat you better,
so goodbye forever.
goodbye forever.
Track Name: billy
and billy
do you know what i meant when i said, "run away"
do you know what i mean when I said to go away?
cuz they are all just all out to get you.
and they wanna watch you die.
i'm trying so hard not to hurt you.
i don't want to see you cry.

and billy
stay away from that father of yours
because he is not your dad, he's not your friend, he's not your blood.
he barely deserves to even call you his son.
cuz he is only gonna hurt you.
and he wants to watch you die.

and don't ever let him touch you again.
we'll be the ones to make him cry.

and billy.
don't you wanna run away with me?
we could leave this town and be more than they'll ever be.
we can fuck around and be happy.

they are not your friends, they're not your life, they're not your love.
they are just the ones who've been hanging above.

and billy, don't you wanna wanna fall in love with me?
Track Name: billy is a cowboy
salem needs to stop and rest.
that appaloosa pony is my best friend,
yes he is.

tomorrow morning we're heading out west.
gonna kill myself some bandits,
gonna meet some aliens.
we'll be friends.

i got my rifle, got my shotgun, got my whiskey.
when i'm away i just hope my baby miss me.
and we'll cause a ruckus.
that just means we are a success.

Track Name: billy's escape escape (interlude)
walk outside tonight.
get away, it'll be aright.
the window will be the gate tonight.
stand outside till you see the light.

cuz i wanna feel you.
run mah fingers through your hair.
and i wanna see you.
it's only fair.

stand outside till you see the light.

cuz i wanna feel you.
run my fingers through your hair.
and i wanna see you.
it's only fair.

grab the knife
Track Name: suck it up, fuck it up
and you were exactly what i wanted .
you always wanted to kill yourself for stupid reasons.
and you were so spoiled rotten.
get on that plane and go away,
you won't be forgotten.

and we were never happy together.
this is your life, you have a choice,
can you make it better?

but what's life when you're all tied down?
suck it up, fuck it up, we'll move on whenever.

...

but whaddaya know, i've got to go.
i've got to miss that bus.
but why do you go, i didn't know.
i've got to miss that bus.
Track Name: palm trees
wont you run, run away
with me, if only today?
forget about all of the things
that bring you down.

come now, won't you stay?
just us, if only today.
forget about all of the things
that hold you back.

and you know we could go anywhere,
if thats alright.

and you know we could leave everything
and get away from this shitty life.
even though we both have our reasons.
we both have our cares.
you know that i miss you.
you know that i care.

won't you run, run away,
with me if only today.
forget about all of the things that bring you down.

come now, won't you stay?
just us, if only today.
forget about all of the things
that hold you back.
Track Name: the venting song
iridescence all condenses,
back to school you're not a fool.
with so much changing,
compensating reduces me to just a tool.
what, who or why and where to go
and what to say and who to know .
at my age i find it sad
that people spend their whole lives going mad.
i guess that's just the way it is
when you live inside a place like this.

now we have no morals,
we have no standards,
everything we do is just so standard.
our minds are filled with material things
and lust and greed and stupid things.
and at 16, i can't help notice,
everything we do is so out of focus.
action without thought.
thought without action.

hey, humanity. what happened to our passion?
Track Name: do you wanna play god?
and i don't know why i want you so badly
but every time you need some help
you come to me, you come to me.
and i can't tell you what i want.
but you can change things
by answering one question.

and when i am alone i feel so unmotivated.
and i just wanna go home,
but first i have to make one.
and i don't care that it never happened.
it's just one less memory that i'll never have.

do you wanna play god?
do you wanna play god with me?
do you wanna play god?
do you wanna play god?

and you left my life
just as quickly as you entered.
and i was better off
being wasted than wasting so much time.
and the UFO's are here with their imaginary ladders,
it's a never ending cycle,
but nothing really maters.

do you wanna play god?
do you wanna play god with me?
do you wanna play god?
do you wanna play god?
with me
Track Name: edge of the world (newer)
one day i went a walkin.
through the appalachian trail
i met this man on my journey
and he said

"girl you don't know where ive been
hiked through the rockies
all through the land.
went to new york last month
no one noticed me
still im as happy as any man could ever be."

do do do do do. do do do do do do do.

one day i met this stranger
he didn't look so bad.
somehow we got to talking,
and he said,
"darlin you don't know who i am
sold my soul some time ago don't you know.
money, greed and drugs don't mean anything.
take my words, learn from them, escape this pain."

money, greed and drugs don't mean anything.
take my words, learn from them, escape this pain
money, greed and drugs don't mean anything.
take my words, learn from them, escape this pain

one day i went a walkin by the edge of the world
met some folks on my own time and they said
"darlin you know how to live your life.
i don't know you, you don't know me, that's alright.
we're glad you're home, its been some time since we last seen you.
do you know who we are?
we remember you."

money, greed and drugs don't mean anything.
take my words, learn from them, escape this pain
money, greed and drugs don't mean anything.
take my words, learn from them, escape this pain
Track Name: new boy
well you said you wished the things i did to you
would happen to me, only worse.
and i knew what i was about to do to you
was selfish and cruel, i couldn't help it.

but i got a new boy.
i don't think he likes me that much.
but i'll just wait and see, i'll wait and see.
and i got a new life,
with so many hopes.
i just hope he follows through, it follows through.

and he said to me on new years eve,
so surprised he didn't leave,
"I think I love you."
and i thought to myself.

"I think I love you too"

so you'll be my new boy,
i hope you stick around for good.
but we'll just wait and see, hopefully.

and i don't know the worst of it.

nothing but silence.
Track Name: i saw you (incomplete)
and i saw you just creeping around the house
and i saw you just trying not to be found
and i saw you just wanting to go down
and i saw you just wandering around.

so who are you?
and what are you looking for tonight?
and how dare you
stare at me with those corrupted brown eyes?

and i want you but maybe not in that way.
and you did too, but who am i to say?
and now it's too late, im in my car, im on my way.
theres no turning back, i'll just adapt to what awaits.

so where are you?
and why did you want me back tonight?
and how could you
taunt me with that sweet softer side.
Track Name: i shouldn't have uploaded this
i never wanted any of this
it just happens, it just happens.
what do we do when the truth comes out?
i don't know, i'll never know.

i don't know
is this all over

what do we do when the truth comes out
i don't know, i'll never know.
when you're alone do you think of me?
i don't know, i'll never know

alone do you think of me
i don't know i'll never know
all the time we spent downstairs

is this fake or is this real
i can't say
i'll never know

----

making up movies in my head.
my eyes are are the cameras for the world
making up movies in my head.
my eyes are just the viewpoint
making up movies in my in my eyes

i don't know how to explain it.
i see everything clearly.

Track Name: sarah (unfinished)
party after party, long rides home
exchanging music tastes while another awaits.
there's a mcdolans where the old cow pasture use to be.
drive by it every morning on the way to school.
memorize the hills and dips and trees and grass and rivers.
memorize the way things use to be.

and yeah you like to take xanex to calm your nerves.
driving in the dark just to sing your heart out.
you like to have things your way
thats alright, that's okay.
this winter is just getting colder,
my 18th birthday is next week.
and i'm not getting older. i'm just now learning how to speak.
there's so many things ive yet to do
theres so little time to make my move.

and sarah won't you tag along with me?
i could really use some company.
and sarah won't you come along with me.
no one else, just you.
Track Name: family
and i often
don't feel
like talkin.

its all the same
these people,
these games.

and one day
i'll cross
the ocean.

i'll toss and turn
and crash and burn
in a swaying motion.

and i,
i don't know
where to stop anymore.

i'm 18,
and all i need is a family.

and i often
just feel
like walkin

anything
to get away
from these problems
i face everyday.

and maybe
i'll find a place to stay.

i'll go to hell
if they even want me.

and i, i don't know
where to go anymore.

i'm 18
and all i need is a family
