Track Name: lemon goths
trudging slowly, highway squealing
a bus is parked it feels surreal and
i hear the silence kiss your ear
aural void grows, all is consumed
could feel like death if i did choose
to close my eyes and think of you
always sober, always feeling
already high like nothing's real
my mind is there but my body's here
Track Name: x
look up
at the sea of stars,
can my liquid hands
pervade yr palms?

xxxxxx now,
yr all the dreams i don't have when im down.
you make me feel my feet compress the ground,
when yr around.

my skin
has been made ugly by depression's lips.
i feel guilty when in my head we kiss
'cause i'm not sure what to think.

are you into this?
Track Name: i hate mondays
i'm gonna change the name
of every day to monday
because i hate all of them

im gonna need to take some pills
to balance my brain chemicals

you make me feel happy
and bad about myself
at the same time

i look up
as your house burns down
i really need to get you out
