Track Name: Flamingo
Stop me
If I’m going too fast
Shock me
Is this going to last
White sheets
Feathers bathed in ink
The only thing that gets to me

You look so pretty in pink
Track Name: Peachy Keen
Dozing off to moles and squares
Toes in docks and dyes in hair
Save my seat
I’ve gone somewhere sweet
(Peachy keen)

I remember that summer
We dwelled in cold Decembers
You
Were always on my mind
Destitute and getting older
You were fucked up I was sober
We
Could never get it right

The waves slept and bummed
We danced on our doves
I wonder what you’re thinking
We crowned love in tongues
You’re my sugar plum
That’s when we started drinking
Save my seat
I’ve gone somewhere sweet
Peachy keen
We’re great, fine, complete

I remember that summer
We dwelled in cold Decembers
You
Were always on my mind
Destitute and getting older
You were fucked up I was sober
We
Could never get it right

I remember that summer
We dwelled in cold Decembers
You
Were always on my mind
Destitute and getting older
You were fucked up I was sober
We
Could never get it right

I remember that semester
You were happy never better
I
Was never on your mind
Was never on your mind
Track Name: I Caught a Glimpse!
Across the avenue, our gaze collides
I spot your stupid sign
I’ve lost a friend or two to suits and ties
So come with me tonight

I caught a glimpse of you
You caught my eye
And all my friends will die
I got a place for two
Inside my mind
Let’s just jump off tonight

Another minute ticks away
My blood is boiling muscles shake
They say I’m crazy gone insane
But I’m okay
Impending judgment plagues my brain
I need to escape
It’s over we’re finished the sky’s gonna fall down today

I caught a glimpse of you
You caught my eye
And all my friends will die
I got a place for two
Inside my mind
Let’s just jump off tonight

I’ve lost a friend or two to suits and ties
So come with me tonight

I caught a glimpse of you
You caught my eye
And all my friends will die
I got a place for two
Inside my mind
Let’s just jump off tonight
Track Name: Dragonfly (feat. Danny Akah)
Stuck in the highlights, I was convinced
Couldn’t see all that pretty shit
I was terrified, did I normalize these things?
Caught in a bird’s eye, lost and alone
My baby listens on the phone
While I seek and I try to find what puts this man at ease

Take these wings in desolation
Take them in your arms again
Who will love you once you’re broken?
Who will be there in the end?
I can try and change but that don’t
Mean I’ll be a better man
Looming trials and tribulations
In the end, will I still stand?

Mama told me, fight for your own
In due time you’ll take your thrown
Simple life was my pride
The catcher in the rye in me
Carry on, she says to me
Plead with God for all bad deeds
Cause the winds and the breeze
Yeah they’re slowly humbling me

Take these wings in desolation
Take them in your arms again
Who will love you once you’re broken?
Who will be there in the end?
I can try and change but that don’t
Mean I’ll be a better man
Looming trials and tribulations
In the end, will I still stand?
Track Name: Nail Polish
My house is blue
And green and golden
Glass walls and roof
I don’t wanna fight anymore
I don’t wanna fight anymore
When stones come through
It topples over
I know I lose
I don’t wanna fight anymore
I don’t wanna fight anymore

I paint my nails and you got me glowing up
It’s getting rough
I paint my nails you always get me going

Genie of my grief
I let him be
There’s nothing wrong with me
I get cold feet
I sleep away the day
Under the screen
There’s nothing wrong with me
I let it be
So I told him not to fade away
There’s nothing in my brain
I’m putting walls up just to get some shade
I don’t wanna fight anymore
I don’t wanna fight anymore
Said I gotta get away, today
This godforsaken place
Is keeping me from wanting my own face
I don’t wanna fight anymore
I don’t wanna fight anymore

I paint my nails and you got me glowing up
It’s getting rough
I paint my nails and you got me glowing up
It’s getting rough and it’s time to sober up
I pay my bail and the weekends show me love
We’re growing up
I paint my nails you always get me going

My house is blue
And green and golden
Glass walls and roof
I don’t wanna fight anymore
I don’t wanna fight anymore
When stones come through
It topples over
I know I lose
I know we're alright
We're just fine

I’ve got bad blood in my veins, don’t let it escape
I’m not afraid of what’s at stake, I just misbehave
I’ve got bad blood in my veins, don’t let it escape
I’m not afraid of what’s at stake
Track Name: Stones
Hold me now
I’m freaking out
My bones are cold
Bolted down
I’m well endowed
It’s getting old

You surround me for the last time
Far too loud we can’t get past mine
My wounds are still open I’m sick of invoking a deity despised
But for some small moments, our stones keep on rolling, the ringing subsides

See the sun
We’re never done
I’m followed home
Speak up son
I hear no one
It’s in my bones

You surround me for the last time
Far too loud we can’t get past mine
My wounds are still open I’m sick of invoking a deity despised
But for some small moments, our stones keep on rolling, the ringing subsides

You can sleep, but you’ll never rest
