Track Name: life in the age of tragedy
lanky limbs intertwined
shallow breaths
between mine
shaky hands, heavy sighs
swallowed up
into lies
say the silence was okay
let it kill you
anyways
say the silence was okay
let it kill you
anyways
hollow veins beat in time
like shallow breaths
between mine
say the silence was okay
let it kill you
anyways
you’re not afraid of being alone
and i know what you are
you’re not afraid of being alone
just afraid to go it alone
Track Name: amor fati
is this what i have to look forward to?: from couch to couch to subletting cora’s apartment every summer
i’ve come to wonder if i could’ve been any dumber
aging with dismay, every day that i waste
calling you again just in case you didn’t get the first one
the phone shaking in my hands, saying
“i don’t have anyone else i can say this to”
its hard to admit but i wish i was with you
and that’s hard to admit bc i know that its true
in this room we feel like strangers and there’s nothing i can do
i guess we’re through
look back and get your head cut off
i won’t drive 300 miles just so you can blow me off
if i look back again i’ll get my head cut off
going to community college has made me soft
but i swear to god i’ll do it, trace my silhouette in chalk
or put a bullet in my head but i’ll never fucking stop
from screaming at the world or writing all these songs
or doing any fucking thing that makes my life feel less wrong
i’ll smile while i ride my bike all the way down to your street
and still be happy when i think about the times we got to be:
