Track Name: Reminder
I'm always running in place, never making any progress
Wipe the slate clean, only to dirty it up again
Now I'm getting tired
Of carrying around all of this weight you left me with
Yeah, you left me

My mind wanders off, & I get lost in thoughts
In all the things I can't say out loud
In everything I can't say I'm proud of

Why can't I see, all of the damage that this is causing?
When I speak, my words are like lit matches
Watch you burn out like kerosene

You wear those bruises on your wrists, just like bracelets
Those black & blues to prove this hurts you more than
You would like to admit
They'll serve as a purposeful reminder
Of how you could have always been happy
But honestly I hope that you're happier without me
Track Name: Passenger
Feel the crushing weight of burden on my chest
Separate & add the space between the thoughts in my head
I can promise that I'm doing my best
To try & keep it all together, while I'm pulling at the thread

"It's never permanent" — that's what they say
But I resolve to go about my own way
It's like I recognize the problems I create
Still, I tend to walk in circles & make the same mistakes

I'm trading in my old wounds for clarity
Eventually, I'll get to where I want to be
But how long have I been stuck inside?
Living with my half open eyes

I had to wait until the water filled my lungs, to catch my breath
Until there was almost no oxygen left
But you poked holes for me, so I could breathe

Where did I go wrong?
I spent the last year walking backwards
I can't seem to find any comfort
I've misplaced all of the right words
Track Name: Annabel
Annabel, I saw you late last night
When I showed up, I was searching for
The flicker behind your framed eyes
Instead, cigarette smoke danced around the room
Reaching for the window, but settled on the bed beside you

Just like I always do

I can say, that I never felt safe
Buried beneath your bed sheets
I never found comfort in your comforter
As your blankets became snakes
Constricting & suffocating me

Annabel, why are you afraid?
To commit to those mistakes that you know that you've made
I wish that you would etch my name into your skin
Because you know that I've been closer
Than anyone would ever, should ever, could ever get
