Track Name: Blue Line
Blank stares, nowhere
This is January, baby
Dark days, drug haze
Weaved in frozen pools of worry

I’m tired of absorbing life, I just want to recreate it
I’m tired of absorbing life, I fucking it hate it now

TVs, looped feeds
Nothing seems to matter now
Blue line, no sunshine
Taking me a little further down

I’m tired of absorbing life, I just want to recreate it
I’m tired of absorbing life, I fucking it hate it now

Take her back she chose the wrong adventure
I don’t mind, it’s just the maze that I’m in
How can we all keep going in circles?
Track Name: Chlorophyll
Cold came quicker than I thought
I thought that this was over now
White walls, nothing seems to change
Now nothing seems to change

I don’t want your love
I don’t want your drugs
I just want your chlorophyll

Wasteland in the distance
Reminiscent of a color scheme
We’ve been chasing warmer days
LA is in the future that we dream

I don’t want your love
I don’t want your drugs
I just want your chlorophyll
Track Name: I Don't Wanna (KCMP)
Spent my whole day in the dark
I would do anything, I would do anything to see you
Feel my lungs falling apart
Every cigarette is a reason I need you, I need you

I don’t want to keep checking my phone
I don’t want to know, know if you love me

I'm tired of this up and down
I would do anything, I would do anything to stop it
I just want to have you around
You just complete me and I just complete your apartment

I don’t want to keep checking my phone
I don’t want to know, know if you love me

I don't want to know
Track Name: Straight to Video
We take our time, we never get anything done
I made a list of all the things that I would do with you
But I’ve wasted my summer

We used to play those games on the northside
Now I get drunk and I just stay inside

All of my friends are not around
Oh no, I go straight to video

Everyone says that they’ve got the best life
I would as well if I showed the highlights

All of my friends are not around
Oh no, I go straight to video

I miss bowling with you on Diversey, it was comfortable
I felt like drinking Blue Moons on Diversey, it was comfortable

I know, I go straight to video
Track Name: New York
I’m not you’re cool Brooklyn kid, I wish I was
I’m not calm and I’m not silent, I wish I was
I’m sick of writing all these songs you’ll never hear
I’m sick of writing all these songs

And come back from New York City, I think I like you
And come back from New York City, I think I do
And we could just drink a Highlife, we shouldn’t live a low life
And come back from New York City, I think I do

I’m not your Bushwick basement, I’ll never be
I’m not drunk and I’m not wasted, you said you’d leave
I’m sick of writing all these songs you’ll never hear
I’m sick of writing all songs

And come back from New York City, I think I like you
And come back from New York City, I think I do
And we could just drink a Highlife, we shouldn’t live a low life
And come back from New York City, I think I do

I held you captive in my mind
Only place I could ever think to call you mine

And come back from New York City, I think I like you
And come back from New York City, I think I do
And we could just drink a Highlife, we shouldn’t live a low life
And come back from New York City, I think I do
Track Name: Birthday
I hate to miss your birthday
Guess I shouldn’t have fucked up in the first place
I know it’s wasted time
Trying to make sense of that goodbye

I’m still waiting here

Every time I hear your voice it’s on a stage at night
You look different in fluorescent lights
Every time I write a song, you say, "Is this the last one?"
You’re not Euridyce looking back on

I’m still waiting here

I can’t feel my mind, my eyes are dilated
Time goes slow, I need some patience
Every time I write a song, you say, “Is this the last one?”
You’re not Euridyce looking back on

I’m still waiting here

I hate to miss your birthday
