Your choice took too long to make you've exhausted the outcomes Your patience is just a cheap knockoff and you get what you pay for Sometimes paths in life don't necessarily meet but when you left you pulled the rug from beneath my feet and I fall to the floor, try to go with the flow, but what hurts the most is things only you'll know. As I drift, I tend to neglect what a fortunate misery You're anxious, an emotional wreck as you stole the pieces of me I know you know something...

Feels Wrong 02:18
Sat around the past two months rereading every text message, so I booked a flight to the west coast to outrun my thoughts. I drifted through Los Angeles hoping to forge experiences, you followed me on vacation- I clearly lost. It feels wrong, ever since you quit me. Found myself in San Diego drinking beers on a bar patio, unseasonably cold and uncomfortable, thinking of you. I've sat around the past two months evaluating every outcome, a decision made for both of us...all is lost. It feels wrong, ever since you quit me. It would feel right, if you were here with me.

The Current 03:26
I can't wrap my head around this anymore. This past year has been too much for me to absorb. Wasted 2 1/2 years with someone horrible. Didn't have enough time with someone I adore. We threw love into the river, watched it break apart on stones and foam away. There's nothing left to recover, no lessons to be learned...this current leads to a fall. Control is the shadow I cast by circumstance. I'm holding you saying "it's ok" trying to convince myself. Luck runs out and memory comes to collect the debts (the funhouse mirror, warping your fears) telling you what you lost.

You're taking, I'm giving you'll win in this exchange I've showed up, you're leaving before the heavy lifting My last bet, a weight around my neck Could I gave more of myself? Back again, in the center of bed wondering if I stood a chance. I miss you, I'm breathing hard here at 4am Avoid me, ignore this live in risk assessment My last leg wrapped up in a cast I'll never walk the same I'm riddled now with my doubts and your silence
5.
Poor Timing 02:06
5 years in and you're filled with panic, you're gonna scrap to begin again. Simplify, get rid of cluttered city life. Will I be in your trash bags? I guess you can say our timing was so poor the sum of frustrations we've learned to ignore the boiling point approaches- how long until the water spills on the floor and we've got third degree burns? This city gets the best of you- bites, scratches and chews. You're a discarded dog toy. You'll ask me to move, give up a life and choose...a decision with no time.
6.
Somebody ought to know just how you got so cold, left me here with your purse and came back with a poor excuse. Night is closed as you mouth "bye" through the window, the only noise I let in is my pulse everyone in this bar is too distant. Someone ought to explain why there's so much ice in my drink, too much ice in your heart, numbed out all my parts. What kind of person are you? Do I get to walk you home? No mixed messages this time, I cross the street and see your sneak out your house. Night is closed as you mouth "bye" through the window, the only noise I let in is my pulse, everyone in this bar is too fucked up.

Ken Doll 02:36
Never grew up to be the man you thought I should be. But now with older, wiser sights- I think you want to be me. Enjoy your white picket fence 2.5 kids and manicured lawn. Your wife and kids laughing at that silly scar on your chin. You through living vicariously? Following your instincts- where has that gotten you? You through??? Years down here I stand. Your words slurred but still echoing. Years down here I stand. Your words slurred but still echoing...Ken Doll.... Got a straw in your drink and a foot in your mouth. I'll be as dry as dessert cuz I never forgot. Never grew up to be the man you thought I should but now with older wiser sights- I think you want to be me.
