Track Name: Burning Styrofoam
It was winter
The kids all outside shivering
We got lost in the sparks over head
We gave all we had to forget how they live
So drink up, drink your wine
Drink up, oh father of mine
Drink up
We burned styrofoam to watch the flames drip like water
And wash away the only semblance of grace we had
But we were just stupid kids anyway
So drink up and forget
Drink up and forget, because we're not worth remembering.
Track Name: Porches
Would it kill you to see me drink myself to sleep at night?
Trapped in a room too dark with lips too dry
But whisper me into sober dreams, and I'll drift off
If you'll only sing me to sleep
We grew up stumbling along sidewalks cracked under the weight of this town
Whispering to hallucinations, the empty echoes our only comfort
Would it kill you to see me drink myself to sleep at night?
Trapped in a room too dark with lips too dry
But whisper me into sober dreams, and I'll drift off
If you'll only sing me to sleep
Just sing me to sleep.
Track Name: Beautifully Awkward
Hey pretty girl, I like you
So will you sing with me to my shitty songs
And you can smile and laugh
And just pretend you care at all
'Cause there's this fog that's been hanging around me
But if I squint, I can still see you through it
We could be so beautifully awkward together
Hey beautiful, it's getting fucking cold
So can we hold each other and keep each other warm?
I feel like I'm tearing and I think I need someone to sew my stitches together
The green in your eyes consumes mine
So look into my eyes and tell me you and me will be alright
So lie to me and tell me we will be just fine
What a sight for sore eyes, what a sight for these exhausted eyes
Is it strange that just the thought of you staring at me would make feel this happy?
So will you sing with me to my shitty songs
And you could smile and laugh and just pretend you care at all
Cause there's this fog that's been hanging around me
But if I squint, I can still see you through it
So I'll never stop squinting.
Track Name: Colfax Kids
I remember at summer's end, wishing for the heat to subside
And falling leaves making holes to spot the moon
But tonight the crooked street signs and cracked windows stand bathed in light,
No longer shaded by the trees that were our only support when were young kids and we were too drunk to stand
Their only impact felt in the cracks in the sidewalk
And the images that linger in our heads
Memories of a place we deserted the first chance we got
Those days we always fell short of expectations held for far too long
We grew old, we grew sick of the stale air in our fucked heads
Filled with the stench of these rotted stumps.
Track Name: Reaches
The leaves are turning yellow, red, and beige
We turn a new page
The backyard covered deep in dying wood
And you're gone for good

I took our love to the river to die
I wasn't man enough, my bones cracked and dry

The first snow came the night you left
Your brother's blue eyes reflect the white sand
And reminders of you are everywhere
(Red, yellow, beige, we turn a new page)
Tiny bodies held in outstretched hands
(Deep dying wood, and you're gone for good)

Biting at ever-abandoned flesh
You took everything with you when you left

I took our love to the river to die
I lost my friend, lost my family, lost my soul
When I took our love to the river to die
The first snow came the night you left
