Track Name: Prayers & Eulogies
patience now - mary took a couple months to figure out / the difference between what became her normal way / and certain things she said that were just things to say / all so he would never notice that her heart’s in hiding - soon he saw the writing on the wall / tell me now / mary bury me under the town we called our home / don’t come back is all i ask / the same place she kept her silence / is where she prays her violence - won’t leave her alone / but the guilt’s her own / and now she’s reaching, pleading, needing / those gentle april evenings that she came to vacate / over many long nights they held tight while she lied with busy hands behind / those hands are dripping blood tonight… / mary bury me under the town we called our home / don’t come back is all that i ask / she’s folded her hands / her eyes are closed / she’s just a picture of pain clutching a funeral rose / memories reigning over / mary’s praying over me / mary bury me under the town we called our home / don’t come back is all that i ask / mary bury me under the town we called our home / let me go - tell me now.
Track Name: Automatic
i was used to the rain i for sure knew the clouds / i was blind to the flood that was drowning me out / but you helped me accept and to learn to believe / in the scratched crooked lines in the heart on my sleeve / not to mind or define rather simply to know / i want you to know / you gave me hope when i was rotting / i was rotting out / you gave me hope when it was burning / it was burning down / if i could make you see through static to the same things you see in me / so let this be a deafening chorus / a song paying tribute / words like oxygen pushed / from the heart raging within you / everything that you gave me / started what saved me / i felt the fire in your blood and your soul / you gave me hope when i was rotting / i was rotting out / you gave me hope when it was burning / it was burning down / if i could make you see / the change in me / forget any difference, i want you to know / no matter the distance, you’re never alone
Track Name: Still Gold
i laid my rock flat here before / but there’s a face i can’t ignore / should’ve said my prayers before i hit the door / emerald eyes / cut me from straight across the room / and i’m two-hearted much too soon / your glance is shaky but your smile is true / audrey, i just wanted a chance / but we both know that a rush to judgment could burn us both real bad / so we’ll keep believing in our own truths / until we’re through perfecting what we know we cannot plan / i’m sure you understand / i believe in the patience that it takes / and i know that another can’t erase / any little thing that’s out of place / but it’s all circumstance / and you’ve got perfect plans to be as flawless as this bar has ever seen / audrey, i just wanted a chance / but we both know that a rush to judgment could burn us both real bad / so we’ll keep believing in our own truths / until we’re through perfecting what we know we cannot plan / i’m telling myself you’ve got things to do / places to be a certain standard to produce / supposed to leave these games back behind in our youth / so what’s the use
Track Name: Horchata
do you remember summer / could you forget the other / long enough for me to be the only one inside / your heart may lead you to the things you have to do / and even if our tides would shift how could they bring me back to you / so goodnight and goodbye my love we’ll be alright / so goodnight and goodbye my love we’ll be just fine / the wind is bitter on these cursed winter roads / and every time i take this drive i’m on my own / i carry this on my own / but your suffering won’t set me free / it’s clear but your debris is torn apart and scattered for miles / i carry this on my own / carry on my own / so goodnight and goodbye my love we’ll be alright / so goodnight and goodbye my love we’ll be just fine / let your worries sleep / this one’s up to me / i may carry this with me / but my heart will find release
