Track Name: Madeleine
Everything you try to hold that slips through your hands
Every day you wished would last forever but always ends
We try to hold each moment close
We try to hold what we know cannot stay
We try to keep what we know can’t remain
Nostalgia’s just pain from an unhealed wound

That fleeting sadness that you don’t understand
That memory that brings you so unexpectedly back
We try to hold each moment close
We try to hold what we know cannot stay
We try to keep what we know can’t remain
Nostalgia’s just pain from an unhealed wound

As I look back again
my favorite moments never fit inside a frame

I’ll try to find satisfaction between future and past
While the present’s a fleeting picture that can never last
Yea this moment’s already left us
Track Name: It Seems Pretty Obvious
You, you don’t want no understanding at all
You just want to make sure everything falls
I will never be the one to say
It’s both sides to blame

But when it comes to this I don’t feel that way at all
Sometimes we don’t need a debate when there’s right and wrong
Yea when it comes to this I don’t feel that way at all
It seems pretty obvious it isn’t a question

What’s with this false shit spreading again?
It was funny once or twice, now it’s scary to think
That they’ve fooled these blinded by screens
And there’s no light, to guide them out
Track Name: No Luck
Everyone I know s’ trying to die
Committing slow forms of suicide
We drink fuck eat smoke to forget
We try to lose our minds but they find our way back
To us
No luck

We nullify we numb our minds and run inside ourselves
We cover eyes and ears to pass the time
Occupy a space between death and sleep but everything
Makes it worse
I need sleep
I need sleep
I need sleep
Can’t help me
Just makes it worse
Track Name: Isolation 101
I try to silence my reaction
Not search for knee jerk satisfaction
Here we go again

You already know I’m drunk and alone- it isn’t a question
Solace is there if I never care- build walls for protection
You already know, I won’t pick up the phone
There is a lesson to be learned here

There’s always the faint dissatisfaction
I want to forget mistakes, my actions
That have led me here

You already know I’m drunk and alone- it isn’t a question
Solace is there if I never care- build walls for protection
You already know, I won’t pick up the phone
There is a lesson to be learned here
Track Name: How Am I Going to Function?
Head is pounding
Knees are numb
My back is sore
And i just woke up
What the fuck time is it?
Man, it’s 2
Need some water or hair of the dog
Maybe french fries or tylenol
How am i going function?
Man, I don’t know

Got some coffee now back to bed
I can’t support the weight of my head
I’ll just watch The Office
Season 2
Track Name: Formal Clothes
The last time
I drove down this road
You were sitting next to me
With windows down to feel the air
And I don’t remember where we went, just how it felt
We smiled talking shit, the future bright as the sun went down
And now I’m alone on that same road
Alone
And I don’t think I’ll ever know what to say
There’s nothing to say

And I don’t feel
Like myself
Road still runs south to north
But now I’m feeling so lost
And every tail light brings another question leaving me confused
Was I always good to you? Like you were good to me?
And now I’m alone on that same road
Alone
And I don’t think I’ll ever know what to say
There’s nothing to say

Memories and prayer cards
Casket dreams, broken hearts
Friends embrace in formal clothes
A grief we’ve never known
