Track Name: Paradox in Perfect Pitch
That's as good as this last hug is gonna get
and she's unsure of her future (but she's sure I'm not in it)
this game of chess finally ends

and my pieces are on the ground
while the loneliness becomes contagious

she's a paradox in perfect pitch
the notes are all there but I can't hit them
written on paper but I'm illiterate
she's a paradox that don't make sense to me
Track Name: Complacent
This corroded bridge
Rusted but still standing
Not very safe to travel across
But then again what the fuck is

I'm still complacent
I'm still complacent
You're fucking living
While I'm still complacent

Interpret silence as compliance
and I've been silent way too long
How much more can you take?
When you can't catch a fucking break.

The TV is talking
the walls they're all pealing
Train is delayed again
I'm still complacent.

Your calls will not be returned
Shoes wear out- walk alone
That girl's acting distant
I'm still complacent

You really wanted to travel
What the fuck's stopping you?
Your mind is the agent why you're still complacent
Track Name: Concrete
my emotions are running directly with the economy
my confidence is dead (what a laugh- I don't think I had any)
loving life for it's flaws- what a crock of shit.

stab me in the ribs i could use a 'near death experience'
It'll help me prioritize I'll stop being a bitch.
I'd like to be hard and gray but even concrete has its cracks.

i'm wild sometimes..i'm wild sometimes
i'm wrong most nights...i'm wrong most nights

encouragement might as well be a cough with blood in it
feels good for a second until your realize it really hints
at an infection coming from inside

i'm avoiding putting faith in lottery tickets
the last thing that i need is another paper trail
of failure when this could have been easily avoided.
