Passing 03:02
all the way slipped through the early day cemetery’s drowned in morning dew near the churches draped with ferns that want to see me burn i felt the future buried below my shoes i never thought to second guess the plan i made at somebody's behest a game of chicken to keep my arrow true i always had to make amends when i strayed from the perfect end now i don’t know where i’m going but i won't get there by waiting around for you there's no way the mystery can remain digging through dumpsters, sifting for a clue you’ve got a voice that i adore and i’ve seen that face before my knees are shaking and restless waiting for you but, can't bring myself to send the text cause i only pass on the internet a careful angle to keep my smile in view i always seem to make a mess every time i drunk confess how your hand keeps me steady while the world spins underneath you don't know what to expect when you hold my eyes with that rough caress smoke in the sky, electric bleeding hue don't mean to be a hypocrite, but let’s maybe slow it down a bit let the current flow through and over you pulling us into that deep, deep blue

every day's a disaster, new sights to behold my feed's full of horrors about to unfold but if you're trapped in a moment controlled by fear it won't be easy but a good day is near so when the sky goes black and your eyes turn red and the spiraling thoughts fill your crowded head let it ride, let it break it'll happen, we'll help it together the earth is still spinning and dead stars still shine even mountains can move one rock at a time so when those d.c. fuckups put a ring in your ears just know that it won't come easy, but a good day is near yeah, it won't come easy, but a good day is near so when the sky goes black and your eyes turn red and the spiraling thoughts fill your crowded head let it ride, let it break it'll happen, we'll help it together so don't think for a second that weak and alone it takes strength to stand on your own find the family that will stand up and cheer it won't be easy but a good day is near yeah, it took a long time, to say "i'm proud to be queer" and it won't be easy, but a good day is near

Daydrunk 03:35
punch drunk and i can't move my tongue can't find the words that would move this audition along get me out of the spotlight i never asked for stuck up in a casual way telling me jokes swearing it's really okay "life is so short, so why even worry?" winning me over with a flick of the wrist a sleight of hand i never saw coming wine drunk and I'm spilling your song the one that sent where you swore that you'd never belong well look at you now singing and smiling turned up in the cover of night touching my hand away from the flickering light seen on the street as long as we're hiding twisting me over wound up like a top spiraling just like you wanted daydrunk coming down with the sun turning my head to the one that you said I'd become glossy and gaunt famous and frozen cold eyes and a cigarette haze blood in my mouth haven't seen sober for days a small price to pay to not have to miss you cut down and sewn up i can fix every flaw but will it ever be ever be enough for you
