Track Name: Splinters (demo)
Tangled in winters veins
You ran away, you ran away
These bare trees look like
The splinters in my skin


I searched for a long while
In your eyes in your smile
Say those words to me
I promise I'm ready this time

Your cowardice
It never seemed to faulter
You were just a boy
Looking for the man
You won't find it
Breaking down like you did

Your cowardice
It never seemed to faulter
You were just a boy
Looking for the man
You won't find it
Breaking down like you did

I've been grinding my teeth
since that one time at her apartment
My gums were bleeding
I was shaking- cold sweats
But I wasn't dreaming
So I guess it's all worth it
I wasn't dreaming
So I guess it's all worth it
I wasn't dreaming
So I guess it's all worth it
I wasn't dreaming
oh, I wasn't dreaming

Your cowardice
It never seemed to faulter
You were just a boy
Looking for the man
You won't find it
Breaking down like you did
Track Name: Someone Else (demo)
The last time I saw her
was just like the others.
Leaned in for a kiss baby
dropped off the grid, eyes gone crazy

She had a boyfriend and
didn't want to say it
New boys but in love with the same girl
She's been on repeat for a while now

I never needed her anyways
but those first loves, oh
they have their days,
they have their days.

The last time I saw him
Just around Christmas.
Leaned in for a last kiss
I admit I felt nothing, oh

Says he's been falling
I couldn't catch him
I hope you see the mountains
And grow into the shoes you stand in

I never needed him anyways
But those deep loves, oh
they have their days,
they have their days

Your name resides familiar
words on my tongue
Sometimes bitter
But you've brought that upon yourself
I am someone, someone else now

I am someone someone else
I am someone outside of this
I am someone outside of you and
everything we've created

I am someone someone else

I am someone someone else
I am someone outside of this
I am someone outside of you and
everything we've created
Track Name: Off The Deep End (demo)
I spent the summer drinking
but didn't fall off the deep end
I spent the fall choking-
the earth between my toes began to tease again

they tell me this is growing old
but i don't believe them
they tell me this is how it goes
but i don't foresee it

i filled my lungs with just enough
not to run again
but as the winter winds came through,
you faded and i was gone again


they tell me this is growing old
but i don't believe them
they tell me this is how it goes
but i don't foresee it

this year has been one
for falling out of love
family, lovers, and friends
where have you gone


they tell me this is growing old
but i don't believe them
they tell me this is how it goes
but i don't foresee it

i called peter pan last night
but he didn't recognize-
i guess I've done some growing up
I'm not the kid that i once was
i'm not the kid,
I'm not the kid,
I'm not the kid that i
once was, oh no
Track Name: I Built The Fire (demo)
I built the fire
but she lit up
I looked her dead in the eye
and asked do you believe in love?
She said no,
not so much these days
and i said why

she said, nobody stays oh nobody stays
nobody stays anymore

I love the way that your eyes hold
won't you tell me all the things
that I'll never know
oh, won't you stay?
she said no,
I've got a thunder in my soul
like you've never known
a thunder in my soul
like you've never known

my knees are weak
but my heart strong
she looked me dead in the eye and asked
'do you believe in love'
i said 'no, not so much these days'
she said 'why'
i said 'nobody stays oh, nobody stays...
nobody stays anymore'
Track Name: Hand Me Downs (demo)
There are no givens,
except what we're give by the ones who came before us
But the left us a puzzle,
Late birthday wrapping, thick paper, paper cuts
We are creatures of a culture we create
But we are still inflicted with our contextual birthplace

This problem's generations old,
Hand-me-down psychology
Perfectly the puzzle pieces fit between
My mom and me

Late birthday wrapping, thick paper, paper cuts
What they couldn't figure, they have left for us
You are me, I'm not you
Suffering, still burns through
Hand-me-down pain
Hand-me-down pain
Track Name: Tuesday (demo)
I was born on a tuesday
I took two huge gasps of air
this world is mine for the taking
once i figure out, once I figure out how

I am starting to lose feeling
we never quite grew out of ourselves
we're still kids, we're still kids
promise you this
we're still kids i swear
underneath all of it

we'll sit and reminisce
talk about the old days
pretending to be grown up all the time
when the truth is we're twenty something
and still threatening to run away
when there's nothing
and no one
holding us here in the first place

i fell in love on a thursday
i've held my breath ever since
this heart is yours for the taking
tell me if you ever end up finding it

i am starting to lose feeling
we never quite grew out of ourselves
we're still kids, we're still kids
i promise you this
we're still kids i swear
underneath all of it
Track Name: Shaky Knees (demo)
Do you still hurt?
Because sometimes I let my guard down
I know it’s just a habit
I need to break down
But when you give someone years
and let them fill the blanks
it’s shattering when they pull away
I set my ribs on the table
and my fingertips are touching my palms now
I brought all that I could,
but these are things we carry with us now
You left me to draw my own conclusions
despite my infatuation, you were as transparent as they came
You know how I feel about assumptions
I wish you could of told me face to face
Because now you’re written down
in my history
as the lover who had
shaky knees
I set my ribs on the table
and my fingertips are touching my palms now
I set my ribs on the table
and my fingertips are touching my palms now
I brought all that I could,
but these are things we carry with us now
Track Name: Choke (demo)
You're so voiceless
you grab the headliners
and spit them out-
you like the sound
but you're so empty under that body,
don't tell me you feel heavy.  
Don't you know we see right through
your dense words?
Keep talking.
(Sounds of the voiceless)
I'm hearing myself say,
I’ve heard this a thousand times before.

Someday’s all I've got is a voice
in the back of my throat
but I won't choke.
I won’t-
Won't you wake up
and feel something
you know you don't have to be a ghost anymore

Are you a guest in your own ghost life
with your packed bag and fear of impact.
You can only fear what you've seen before,
so fight your demons,
don't give them hope.
At the end of the day all that matters is
are you dead or are you sleeping?
Won't you wake up and feel something

Someday’s all I've got is a voice
in the back of my throat
but I won't choke.
I won’t-
Won't you wake up
and feel something
you know you don't have to be a ghost anymore

Won't you wake up
and feel something
you know you don't have to be a ghost anymore
Track Name: Dandelions (demo)
Well it’s been two years since the end of high school
So why
Am I
Still Mad
At my gym teacher?

And home isn’t really home,
Because all we do is get drunk
At Matt’s house, and piss on lawns at 3am

And I’m sorry Cesar,
For getting you kicked out of your house,
The first day I came back
You’re not out of control,
I was the one,
Who wanted to drink on your roof

But there are dandelions everywhere,
Because so many people, are scared
There are dandelions everywhere,
Because so many people are unaware
That there
Are places other than Baldwin

And no one here realizes, that there’s a whole world out there
Directly east is for the rich, and west, for the heartless

And no one here realizes, that they’re 30-year-old kids
Growing up is not making money, or having responsibility
But developing, working on your flaws
And changing
Like humans are supposed to do
But I guess, Long Islanders
Aren’t really human

And there are dandelions everywhere,
Because so many people, are scared
There are dandelions everywhere,
Because so many people are unaware
That there
Are locations that aren’t Long Island
