Track Name: Pleasant View Road
i find comfort in the security of sadness
because it's always had a place for me

it's when i'm happy that i feel lost

you only see me through stained eyes
and find validity through 10 second videos
as if anyone cares what you did
or who you did it with
could you just put down your fucking phone and live?

you told me you don't want to die
but it's obvious you're just scared of living
because i've never felt more free
than when i'm walking down empty roads at 3AM
each house tells a story
with a balloon tied to a mailbox
or an ambient light coming from a bedroom
where someone sits feeling the way i felt last winter

and i find comfort in the security of sadness
because it's always had a place for me

it's when i'm happy that i feel lost
Track Name: Strum Nothing
every day i go through the same motions of my life
even though i am no longer alive inside

and maybe the reason we didn't work out the first couple times
is the same reason why
because i get so scared of waking up at night
and never getting to tell my dreams goodbye

i looked up at the sky today and thought of our favorite song

and that night when your phone wouldn't stop vibrating?
i don't know if you heard me, but you hurt me
'cuz we were so young and ignorant
and it left me hopelessly hoping that it wouldn't be it for us

and you may be the reason i write these fucking songs
but don't think for a second these fucking songs are about you
