Track Name: laminated
my hands are tied
my tongue is bound
my feet don't ever leave the ground

every word you said to me
you said so eloquently

so i wrap them in a plastic case
i laminate all that you say

so one day when you break my heart
i'll know you didn't always want to

so one day when you break my heart
i'll know you didn't always mean to

so one day when you break my heart
i'll know you didn't always plan to
Track Name: the fire
there's a fire all around you
and it burns, and it burns
there's fire inside you
and it burns, and it burns

it's hard to deny you
when i yearn, when i yearn
there's fire inside you
and it burns, and it burns

there's water in my chest, boy
and it's cold, and it's cold
but when i'm around you
then it boils, then it boils

it's hard to deny you
there's a fire all around you
and it burns, and it burns

and its hard to deny you
when i yearn, when i yearn

and it's hard to deny you
Track Name: the smoothest way is full of stones
and i swim these streams alone
but i'm sinking like a stone
and my belly's full of lead
the butterflies have fallen dead

and i breathe this water down
i wear my demise as a crown
your words are heavy in head
the fish are waiting to be fed

and i swim these streams alone
but i'm sinking like a stone
your words are heavy in my head
and my belly's full of lead

your words are heavy in my head
the fish are waiting to be fed
Track Name: we three
the beast dances with his claws out
the man sings of a kiss and a pout
the woman cries with doubt

together, they write scripts,
put on shows, and stack gold
the beast eats the woman
the man slays the beast

and in the end he sits alone
in the middle of the sea
and tells the whales
that he used to be in love
Track Name: you were a flame
you were a flame but baby i blew you out
but please know first i cradled you
collected only wood i thought you'd like
to burn through

i placed rocks around you like a moat
to keep you safe and contained within me
i exhaled until sparks ignited life in you
but i blew too hard

the air was too cold
no, i was too cold
to keep you

you would have been a flame with a heavy heart
with midnight eyes always burning bright
you would have been a flame but blew you out
i was too ashamed
to keep you
Track Name: tablespoon
meet me down by the water
i'll wrap around you like a sweater
we can watch the hours float by

reflecting off the water
all the time i have wasted
hiding, trying to convince myself:

that the temperature was right in an empty room
and the light was too bright standing next to you

meet me down by the water
i'll hold your head if it is heavy
and you will know
and you will know
it's only you

meet me down by the water
i'll hold your hands when they are empty
and you will know
and you will know
it's only you
