Caramelize 03:27
Caramelize you make me blue I wanna make a man out of you the light in world is dull it's more like empty space through the darkness closing my eyes and they start to sting feeling my tear ducts doing their thing I'm kinda pretty, that's why you want it so bad when the heart gets too tender return it to the sender be more centered if you miss your friend call them again last night I got so swept up my heartbeat was kept up but the song you gave to me is it wrong or meant to be? when you rode off way back when I got this feeling I'd never see you again but here you are in my bed heart gets tender those gaping wide secret eyes close on me they don't want to see I want in on the other side of your eyelids where you hide or further in, that neatest dark but my boyish emotion keeps me soft like the ocean are you relieved when I leave? that I needed to be held is a vice like anything else but the others push it down other vices to make it melt I just wanna give you strength help you make all you can make the extent to which you've grown on me I can feel now you've got a hold on me when you rode off way back when I got this feeling I'd never see you again but here you are in my bed heart gets tender

Apathy 02:23 video
Looking around at 22 and so tired of myself around you maybe I don't fit your ideals anymore or maybe I just grew up into a bore I know that I shouldn't call you but in this light we are all blue I just wanna feel like I'm neatly designed like a telephone pole I want to feel whole Do you wanna go on a date? Or would that be hard to orchestrate? When you close your dreamy eyes are they even close to dreaming of mine? You could take me and my apathy turn us into clarity
3.
I love you so I let you know as often as I can I love you so I let you know as often as I can
4.
This Stuff 01:38
Can you tell anyone this stuff? Can you ever tell it enough? Will it make a difference? Will they forget it within minutes? I'm living in a condo it replaced your favorite movie theater though not all trees have fruits or flowers some are just there to grow I'm not like anyone else my age so I know why they call partying rage I'm not like anyone else my age so I know why they call partying rage I wanna tour in a hot pink van and I want you there to hold my hand and every night that you're in my band is a moment they will never understand can you tell anyone this stuff? can you ever tell it enough? will it make a difference? will they forget it within minutes?

Jesse 02:48 video
Me & Jesse stayed up 'til 2 We talked about dreams, about things, about you It felt like anything could be real or fake Like, our love is my world but so is my heartache And I knew if I thought really hard about flying I could probably do it I'm just too tired for trying I created a scorpion and then had to kill it Just like I loved you and then had to will it to end 'cause I bent the rules and I'm scary my dream is a seam on the world that I'm wearing Allowed to break our deepest holds They keep you in the shade Too late to explain How many things are whole and good The mirror glittered all blue and silver but I was never in it to begin with I'd like to be a shadow in a shadow more deeply invisible than invisible Oh to be part of the scenery Oh to be filled with apathy For you to be a little bit scared of me
6.
Duet 02:12 video
You got nice eyes, they're very blue that is why I look at you I look at you, I look at you I look at you, I look at you Making a list of people to kiss the list is a million Yous long just Yous all the way down Olive oil soft and laundry warm I know I like you but I don't know what for with my boy Ronnie, listening to Connie I couldn't stop if I tried, I will love you 'til I die
7.
Accommodate 01:34
Found myself in a scene told my friends how you made me They let you stomp in still kept you around against my will No one will listen, no one will talk I had to leave just to hear my thoughts My body is a burden I'm always yearning to be less accommodating to say loud how I'm feeling A brief breath of safety disturbed by a series of break-ins spills out brain onto the plate and serves to host but one party where the air hits invisible a spot so thin it's miserable tries to carve a place to escape but holes out in a wholly unholy place you could hardly hear them crack crashed down onto concrete so vast
8.
I'm Fried 01:40
Oh you know I'm fried Oh you know I'm fried I cleared a path for you did you want me to? trying to keep it pure like it was before so maybe I won't be yours in fully the same way but if it's right than maybe I won't turn and walk away I just wanna know that I would walk away from wrong so maybe I won't be yours in fully the same way (oh you know I'm fried) but if it's right than maybe I won't turn and walk away (oh you know I'm fried) I just wanna know that I would walk away from wrong
9.
Hereby 00:57
would it be accurate to call it negligence that I held you harmless when we got into it so cut all my losses and count up the costs and hereby I won't deny the wasted time you made me cry
10.
I'll give it back if you want it all that time you wasted on it I dreamed of you in the car I wanna know how you are From August to October it felt like it was over don't wear yourself out me don't lie down about me Ricky felt alone now so he went to the store gathered up some flowers to mail to Julie's door The field so watery and wide passes me on either side Didn't talk to you today, doesn't matter either way You know I like 'em cut with a certain I-don't-know-what Dipped into the reserve bathed in the dirt I deserve Julie had his flowers taped up on the wall "it's better to love Ricky from afar than not at all"
11.
Ur Up 00:35
I wonder if ur up, I'm America thinkin' of you for no reason
12.
Being alive I see you in everything my vocabulary's limited but I wanna tell it all to you if I could, would you want me to? Being alive if I become a piece of dirt for a dollar can I enter your brain? Being alive matters quite a bit even when you feel like shit Being alive matters quite a bit even when you feel like shit Being alive I'm collapsing inwardly your name strikes a match in me after a drum solo I looked up Craig called out to me after said "Maybe see you later" Being alive matters quite a bit even when you feel like shit Being alive
13.
Bus bus, train train makes me think I'm going far away and I won't come home 'til I'm all grown a moment is pressing I feel undressing I see a purple river wind sends a shiver Double rainbow, I see Joejoe in taxidermy museum Loving you gave me something to do we sleep like nature our love a purple river runs through me ancient I find you in nature I play the first note
14.
My Phone 00:31
My phone will crash and I won't even care 'cause I know you are there I know you are there My phone will die and I won't even cry 'cause I know you're nearby I know you're nearby Throw my phone out I know you'll be around You're easy to be found I'm easy to be found
15.
Cafeteria 02:56
I am not the only one living in delusion I go to the cafeteria cafeteria Suddenly I noticed that you weren't touching me but sometimes I am weird and wrong sometimes I am weird and wrong So late at night we eat the leftover rice It is dark and empty no one sees me no one sees me But I won't get married not at the party not at the party I wasn't built for this world I had sex once, now I'm dead and I never look back it only hurts my head I know I listened to a lie I think about it all the time OK, sometimes I look but only for a sec I will never be touched never get fucked and I'll wonder what makes me so wrong What makes me so wrong? I never felt like the one Never felt like the one
16.
The End 01:23
You tried, yea I know you tried But you still made me cry you still made me cry And I tried to close my eyes But I still saw you cry I still saw you cry I didn't think you had the guts but then you really showed up and now I'm here in our room I'm not waiting for you and once again I'm really glad you're my friend we can do it all again it doesn't mean it's the end And I tried, yea I know I tried But I still made you cry I still made you cry and you tried to close your eyes but you still saw me cry you still saw me cry
17.
Same Thing 01:27
nothing is deserved nothingness is earned like the pillow's cold side rewards your sleeping with more of the same thing hours wasted on the train every body part is pain but it's nothing like the pain of your weeping I saw them laughing
18.
Vessel 03:27
Nothing comes natural I don't feel my body is a vessel But you seem to but you seem to You are a word I made up when I'm high I gave you meaning but I don't know why and you can make me cry only you can make me cry You look like a cloud drifting off am I allowed to watch? I'm not allowed to watch Now you don't have to listen to the shapes that I make with them Are you only on a mission? Is it fine that I miss them? Walking alone in midtown at night like fog that disappears quickly I leave no mark at all leave no mark at all 'Cause we move at just the same time almost like sex 'cause it's so fun I throw my wrist like yours all night long stay alive by nodding along
