The Director 02:42
Blind Eye 01:51
Easier 03:04
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
Complacent 03:13
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
Withholding 02:45
Concrete 03:52
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.
