Track Name: Admittance
We all want to be that girl from the movies
but we're treated like that guy from the movies

We're all dancing around in our hospital gowns

You tell me that it's okay and I'll believe you for the evening
But nobody wins in a cat's game
Even if you're playing alone
Track Name: Four Years Older
You went out and all I got was 4 years older.
You've joined the birds up on the wire
while im down here trying to get wiser.
I'm tripping over the same cracks in the road.
The ones I said I'd miss the day before.

You went out and all I got was 4 years older.
You've joined the birds up on the wire.
You've joined the birds; the ones barely seen after dark.
A cloak of feathers and the gentle pollution of the light.

All I got was 4 years older.
Track Name: Tell Me About The Future
We were smoking down by the river
You were telling me about the future
We were driving past all these stranger's homes
I've seen about four of your own
I know this weight is hard, but these bones are strong

I wish I could take this from you
I wish I could take you home at the least

Outside these hospital doors
It's coming down harder than I've ever seen before
Your mother hugged me in her wet winter coat
I wish I wore one of my own
With worried eyes and stained skin
You looked at me from your hospital bed

I wish I could take this from you
I wish I could take you home at the least

If only home knew how
You wouldn't know me now
But I'm glad you do
Track Name: Song For Tim
You've been writing letters to an ocean
You've been writing letters to a ghost
Living with a sense of connection
There are voices in the void I suppose

Where did you go?

You've been driving nowhere with a dog
And a man who says he's driven by god
Living with a sense of direction
When direction is what drives you apart

Where did you go?

Won't you save me? I'll save you a seat and a song

Where did you go?
Track Name: Managing
You say they've locked you away but its a nice looking place.
Maybe you'll find god over a board game.
They say you're due for some rest.
you know it's only a test.
If only you knew how much time has passed.
You can't blame yourself for that.

If it makes you feel any better.
Yes, I will speak to you like you're my manager
'cuz it gives you the upper hand in this fight you've been having in your head.

When it's 8 o'clock and you've been breaking their rules while you're on their meds.

We know you've done this before. It felt like the other day and you were fine but that was 6 months ago.
Where there was grass there is snow.

Through the lens of a tile floor gleaming with white lights and 409, I see you standing tall up on the heels of your reflection.

They say you get what you get is coming to you but you don't know whats coming to you until it is coming for you.

When its 8 o'clock and you've been breaking their rules while you're on their meds.
Track Name: So Did I
Standing on opposite sides of the rapids
Gesturing to dive
Well so did I

A sea of reasons just beyond the rapids
So many places to look outside your vision
I'm sorry I was young, I'm sorry you were vulnerable
You know I know I tried and you know I think I failed

It's not fair to you
(A wrench, a passenger, a friend)
I should have told you
(It's cold above the water's crest)
I tried to help you
(A rippling out from his entrance)
You know I meant to
(The repercussion is not what's meant)

We pretended these floors were solid
But we could see the floors beneath
So take my eyes

So I don't see the antagonist you've made me be
To cope with the severity
Sorry I was young, sorry you were vulnerable
You know I know I tried
You know I think I failed

It's not fair to you
Track Name: Asylum
Standing at a wall
Telling myself it's more than paint and cracks from
History and copies of photographs
It's hard to say but there was a day
We were crying on the pavement
From prying ourselves open

Is this becoming a ritual?
Or is this just bad luck?
We're sick and ignoring our drugs
We're sick and we don't give a fuck
Is this becoming a ritual?
Or is this just bad luck?
We're sick and we don't give a fuck
(Tell me that it's okay)
[There's still distance between us]

There's still distance between us
(I'll believe you for the evening)
[There's still distance between us]

There's still distance between us

We're all dancing around
In our hospital gowns
