Track Name: Intro
Track Name: Waves
Track Name: Get A Little Lonely
I’m in so deep now
See the water rising fast
Keep it from spilling on the floor
Or there’s gonna be hell to pay

Something’s lost down there
Gotta dig it up one day
17 minors
Not old enough to know

Get a little lonely
Can hardly breathe
Get a little lonely
They’re all I see

Lazy alligator
Hide beneath the sink
The wolf’s in a borrowed car
I can barely think

I should find someone who notices,
Tepid, the one who bore me
You won’t bore me

Get a little lonely
Can hardly breathe
Get a little lonely
They’re in my teeth
Track Name: Songs Don't Help
This is how you know what love is
Pacific standard time
I am trying not to think of you
But these songs don't help
Songs don't help

The hurricane lasted till the morning
Don't know when to stop
My hair's all in my face now
And my friends won't pick up their phones

Take an empty elevator ride in the cold
That'll show em all for sure
I don't remember anything
I just can't help it

I don't want to be afraid
Of strangers that I know
Or the loud noises in every TV show

I don't want to think at all
I don't want to think at all
How could it be so easy?

Songs don't help

How do you know?
Track Name: Why Am I Still Drowning?
Why Am I Still Drowning?
Track Name: Outro Pt. 1
Track Name: folk free jazz
2, 3, 4...
Track Name: sea of love
Track Name: impartial pendulum
Impartial pendulum
You're swinging away from me
Each time I see your face
I hardly believe it

The weight of this podium
That's never leaving
Making my chest something wonderful, I tumble for
The ones that I missed
The ones I pissed off
And the one I won't see again

I've made my peace with it
Or at least I'd like to think that
