Track Name: Radio Silence
So you tell me we’re dying just to get me on your speaker phone.
And you say that you cleaned out your closet you’re perfect from now on.
“Could you give me a listen?"
Man, it feels like I’m talking in circles again.
“Could you look at me different?”
I swear that it seems like we’re already dead

(But you know)
I can’t
Leave here
Til you
Tell me to

Wake me when it's over
You're busy acting like you're so much older.
I'm busy picking at my skin again,
Could you put me under?
You used to make me feel at home,
Now that it's gone I feel alone.
Can't look at one more fucking photograph
Would you put me under?
Can’t we talk about anything other than this?
I'm giving you up for now, I'm giving you up for a little bit.
Why can’t I think about anything other than this?
I'm giving you up for now, I'm giving you up for a little bit.

Pick up your phone for a little bit.
I know you're grown and you're over it.
There's folks i miss from the backside
There's folks i need i don't think i'll ever see anymore

Go head get old while i deal with this.
I'm so burnt up, you're not feeling it.
There's things i miss that you forget.
How'd you let go? Is it cause I'm not around anymore?

(Now I know)
I can’t
Leave here
Til you
Tell me to

Heard you fixed yourself.
Goddamnit, I believe it.
Just feed me stories,
So i can get some sleep.
Tried to cut you off
But fuck, i need it.
One day we’ll be faded out,
Til then i’ll nod along

You were fading out and it feels so good.
Track Name: Blockbussa
Wake up, i’m in the parking lot
Tore up, I can’t be here
Cause my soul’s, struck.
And I can’t get in
Wait for my friends, but they won’t be here til December
I’m still awake
Right by the lake, right by the things we could take all the way
I can’t be sane anymore

When it’s all on me
How’s it all on me?

Watch yourself. This is my soul
Wait and see, Somebody’s Changing
Fighting Fair, it’s good when you’re lonesome
Take me there, Back where I’m from

There’s this day I remember
Walked down the street saw these folks screaming Timber,
They’re not for me, But my god don’t it hurt
When you buckle at the knees
And they look at you sideways, there’s nothing for me
When the situation fucking breaks down,
Folks are staring at you back now
Sweat is going down my neck, god knows nobody rests now
I don’t want to be the same thing that I was when i was walking clean
Nothing’s gonna save me hear there’s nothing left there’s no more kings

Watch yourself. This is my soul
Wait and see, Somebody’s Changing
Fighting Fair, it’s good when you’re lonesome
Take me there, Back where I’m from

I think you left your lipstick on the floor
What a shame, I was hoping some way you wanted more
This is what I feel like when I’m Honest
What’s it feel like when you’re honest?

Cuz I believe that there’s something here to be said of Grace
And I can’t help but love you, No I can’t help but love you
Even with, a heart that breaks like
The promises that you made.

God is good and great
God, it's good and great
Aw Shit Son
