Track Name: Jejune (ft. Paisley Devil)
can't stand the smallness of one's self
have to stand tall to ask for help
can't speak up, this weak tongue
it only begs instead of yells

and if the room keeps closing in
my thoughts are surely gonna win
if there's a chance I'm giving in
I've only asked just to exist

oh me oh me oh my okay
I guess it's time to evaluate
my space in time, my space & need
oh, I don't know what I need

the dark corner won't be taking me again

'you used to speak so much,' well
someone went and took my tongue
and now I speak no joy, no hate, no pain
no lust

oh me oh me oh my okay
I guess it's time to evaluate
my space in time, my space & need
oh, I don't know what I need

the dark corner won't be taking me again

'you used to speak so much,' well
someone went and took my tongue
and now I speak no joy, no hate, no pain
no lust

jejune jejune, why you wanna die soon
eyes in the sun when I'm just starting to like you
jejune jejune, it's all gonna end soon
blanks in the gun and I know we can pretend to

'you used to speak so much,' well
someone went and took my tongue
and now I speak no joy, no hate, no pain
no lust
Track Name: Dogura Sin (Vapid Song)
in the summer, pockets full of change in a slumber
summon courage that could get you to come here
wanna know my number, wanna feel some comfort
take your time but let me know when you're coming

I've been staying up, dreaming what it could be
when you've had enough, you know that it could be
me, a safety, nobody replace
waited up for eight weeks just so I could say please

first love hurts more when you tell it to grow
it's you I adore, I hope that you know
I'm working on me, I'm working my best
I'm working to be more than what's left

I can't help but fall in love, and if you know it's real then show me some
my heart's been waking up, trying to find the words I'm thinking of
my mind's track is set to one, and god damn it's so overdone
but I love you saddest sun, you know that I will 'til we die young

it's the first time in a long time

eyes and nose and lips all waiting for a kiss
I've got no excuse for feeling this listless
gifted, I missed it, tried to keep it written
it's twisted, my love, you know you keep me lifted

first love hurts more when you tell it to grow
it's you I adore, I hope that you know
I'm working on me, I'm working my best
I'm working to be more than what's left

I can't help but fall in love, and if you know it's real then show me some
my heart's been waking up, trying to find the words I'm thinking of
my mind's track is set to one, and god damn it's so overdone
but I love you saddest sun, you know that I will 'til we die young

it's the first time in a long time

you are everything, it's just right
when I'm traveling, you're my light
I'm not forgetting this tonight
your love is keeping it so bright

I'm thinking hard all day because of you
I think that I'll escape, I'll run with you
to a sacred place, a life anew
and then we can be saved, if god has room

I can't help but fall in love, and if you know it's real then show me some
my heart's been waking up, trying to find the words I'm thinking of
my mind's track is set to one, and god damn it's so overdone
but I love you saddest sun, you know that I will 'til we die young
Track Name: Secret Garden
I'm nothing to the masterpiece I thought I would be
and when I'm thirty I'll be gone, nothing left here for me
I plant my feet, I'm still trapped in the jejune city
the river deep, come and see, can't even keep my footing

but you're light in the tunnel, the poor mother's exhaustion
the one that calls when I've run out of options
and I'm so grateful for this love that I've gotten
I just want to pay you back in full & more often

I wanna tell you
I wanna tell you that I care
and if it's alright
I'd like to drive you anywhere

I wanna know you
I wanna lie here killing time
we'll stay here all night
we'll calm eachother's hardened minds

all my time spent in loneliness, time spent in tears
you were right there in front of me, right there for years
these cliched words, can't even think of my own
just want you beside me, so glad to call you home

you say I'm lucky to know music, that I realized my dream anew
if my pockets go empty I don't mind being fool's gold for you
your loving is comfot, the time that heals all my wounds
when the time comes you know that I'd build that white fence for you

I wanna tell you
I wanna tell you that I care
and if it's alright
I'd like to drive you anywhere

I wanna know you
I wanna lie here killing time
we'll stay here all night
we'll calm eachother's hardened minds
Track Name: Isabelle
everyone I know just brings me down & everyone I love is out of town
if she's alive, she'd have left too
every day I wake up on my own, I make a world and call it home
my mind is making my own truths

like when we talk it's happiness & when we cry it's common sense
and we laugh it's a nightmare
so if you could come home to me then we could both die happily
exactly when the world might care

physically ill from feeling again
I'm learning to accept that in you
I'll never feel for the first time again
but I found something new

woke up one day, she told me 'better pray'
but it's easier to put it on paper
she killed herself the first of may and now I think I've found a way
to move on, living without her

each day gone by, the memory seems to die
my heart is filling with laughter
no more waiting for reply, no more asking her God 'why'
just moving onto a new chapter

physically ill from feeling again
I'm learning to accept that in you
I'll never feel for the first time again
but I found something new
Track Name: Those Around Me
I dreamt of you twice
and that was alright
I looked in your eyes
you said you'd be back

my mind doesn't lie
it's up every night
I know you're behind
can we find the right track?

fabulous panic, asleep in the attic
volkswagen rabbit, the years that you had it
tragic romantic

I know what you wanna do
I'll do what you want me to
see when it's through, subdued pursuit
youth in summer blue

because I'm a liar and I'll never tire
of the things that I do to amend, beware to the buyer
it's that true desire, it's you I admire
got a lover in a coma, doesn't make me any bit wiser

I dreamt of you twice
and that was alright
I looked in your eyes
you said you'd be back

my mind doesn't lie
it's up every night
I know you're behind
can we find the right track?

got one friend that listens to my music
no comfort when I hear him do it
listening to it he seems so clueless
doesn't understand that I'm really going through it

yes the truest words I ever spoke
when I sang that I would die alone
in my tracks you'll never know
the saddest sap who made it so

cannot show it, entertainment loen
closed in, with the way it's going
knowing, just a week I loathed you
now you're in my clothing

it's embarrassing, the way you're treating me
go by carefully or you're all I see
no sight for me

I dreamt of you twice
and that was alright
I looked in your eyes
you said you'd be back

my mind doesn't lie
it's up every night
I know you're behind
can we find the right track?
Track Name: Half-Moon Hisui
I have no faith in the things I used to love
and every time, it starts again with new ones
and now my heart resets at night
it's only life but I can't believe in it

makes me feel like I had a shot or two
makes me feel like I met another you
this seems so out of the blue
like I've redacted the truth

if you're misusing your youth
you can't move past twenty-two
and there's just nothing to do
when real life travels through

take me back, take me back

I know that I might be afraid of change
but I never tire of moving on
I know that I might live in the past
but at least I'm still writing songs

I thought I'd die on my nineteenth birthday
but here I am, trying to figure out a way
to cope with insignificnace

it hurts every time I take a step
fall back every time I want to lift
if this is penance for sins
I don't think that I committed

anything worse than growing up
and this is all I can live with
if I can't fix this existence
I've got to learn to live with it

take me back, take me back
(you've grown up jejune)

I know that I might be afraid of change
but I never tire of moving on
I know that I might live in the past
but at least I'm still writing songs
Track Name: Panishment Gnawfest
who will send flowers on the day that I die?
because regards are just a thought when you're too late
and I know I've got more time for today

so let's think now in the moments that we do have
there's really no time for regrets or 'I could have's
try to accept all my thoughts when they're too bad
try to burn bright, maybe we could do that

a hundred great sentences on hundreds of pages
but I've grown so tired of reading the sayings
wise women told me 'oh no, just forget it'
that life's not worth worry, just make sure you write it down

jejune jejune, why you wanna die soon
eyes in the sun when I'm just starting to like you
jejune jejune, it's all gonna end soon
blanks in the gun, I know we can pretend to

a hundred great sentences on hundreds of pages
but I've grown so tired of reading the sayings
wise women told me 'oh no, just forget it'
that life's not worth worry, just make sure you write it down

so I have been spending my days with no phone now
just listening to people around me tell stories
say 'if you feel lonesome just look at the paper
see that you've been down and that you have made it out'
