Track Name: I Miss The Trees
i hurt myself
trying to run too fast
take me
bring me back the past

i try every time
to admit that the fact i am blind
give it some time
we don't fast forward, we only rewind

i climbed the trees
with everything that is in me
i screamed your name from the canopy
my voice shook the leaves

grow out your limbs so you can reach me
Track Name: Thusfar
i cleared the smoke from the first hit
you told me that i deserve it
surrounded by darkness
on the cold damp ground

we sat in our small circle
sharing stories with laughter
i don't feel like going home

al sabo we thank you for the good times spent together

hey you
we should chill together
Track Name: New New Year
my tears are one with the water
your fears become an elegant slaughter
then you told me that you're scared for your life
so please don't worry
cause it'll be fine
this past year's been a long time
feelings been going on
fell for you like a waterfall

i'm scared for my life
confidence is a price that i can barely afford
so i'll just stay broke
Track Name: Sir Dingle
you move to my rhythm
my heart beats the shit out of you
i asked if we could go
you are older than your years
you are stronger than your fears
take my hand

and let's move around the room
catching glimpses of your face
smiling at mine
what are you doing tonight?

you are the only way out of this
you give me hope
it's you

we're making rhythm in this moment
i smile when i see you
our friendship is important
the memories last
Track Name: Half Assed
so it turns out
that i'd be happier
casting my cares
somewhere i feel safe

i'll take back my heart with all its flaws

i knew you'd be happier
we're finding out the hard way
when you look at me
you're staring off into space

no matter how my life turns out
to make sure i was in any way significant

say you'll be the only one for me

say you'll be the one for me
things have really changed
but you've stayed the same
Track Name: dilEmma
i tried to find a safe place for myself
i thought i knew
this place is too much for me to bear
i never knew

i'd like to think that
this is a part of you that i'll hold onto
if memories is all that's left
that's too bad

heavy tension building in my bones
aching footsteps, hands are crawling home

i never knew
i thought i knew
