Track Name: Off The Deep End
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 Peterpan last night
But he didn’t recognize
I guess I’ve done some growing up
Im not the kid I once was
I’m not the kid,
I’m not the kid
I’m not the kid that I once was
Track Name: Dandelions
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
Track Name: Tuesday
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
i promise you this
we're still kids i swear
underneath all of it

we'll sit and chain smoke and drink cheap wine
pretend 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: skin/bone
I wish that you’d walk through my door
Maybe I deserve to be alone
You told me it’s not my fault
You had to find yourself
And I found myself lost

I’m taking back your thoughts
Out of my head
Out of my heart
I’m pushing out your ghost
Out of my bed
Out of my home

And when you leave
Will there be anything left of me?

How is it you’ve got every part of me
How is it that I’m left with nothing
I’m afraid to say that I’m strong
I know one day that I won’t be left
Just skin and bone

I’m taking back your thoughts
Out of my head
Out of my heart
I’m pushing out your ghost
Out of my bed
Out of my home
Track Name: Splinters
Tangled in winters veins
You ran away, you ran away
These bare trees look just like the splinters in my skin

I searched for a long while
In your eyes,
In your smile
Say those words,
I promise I’m ready this time

Your cowardice
It never seemed to falter and
You were just a boy
Looking to become a man
But 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
I wasn’t dreaming so I guess it’s all worth it x4

Your cowardice
It never seemed to falter and
You were just a boy
Looking to become a man
But you won’t find it breaking down like you did

Your cowardice
It never seemed to falter and
You were just a boy
Looking to become a man
But you won’t find it breaking down like you did
Track Name: Someone Else (feat. James Ikeda)
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

But he didn’t recognize
I guess I’ve done some growing up
Im not the kid I once was
I’m not the kid,
I’m not the kid
I’m not the kid that I once was
