Track Name: Mistakes
I'm washing myself with the mundane
how we died
time has blurred the context
but I feel fine

I was so busy trying to be someone else
I Forgot To Be Myself

Carved out of death,
we died

You've got a heart I still love,
it's true
You've got a flawless heart

But I push everyone too soon
Track Name: It Follows
Hold on
to the echo round your neck
it always seems to be a part of everyone

passed on
carve your warmth into my head
until I'm tender
until I'm golden
repurposed at the start

I know I want
distance from this conversation
Skin and I
fall distanced from this confrontation

there's a storm around your legs
I'm broken and you're leaving consciousness

Passed on
until forever in the dark
until you're landed
until you're over
golden at the start

I guess I feel the need to look away
I Feel Bad About It
I Feel Ashamed

You occupy my mind

I cry when passing every day
the place where you first lost my name

You occupy my mind
