Track Name: Chain Chomp
I was tired of being uninspired
It's such a simple thing
And I swear I locked myself up
In that room for weeks, never speaking

Why can't I sleep at night knowing
Tomorrow's morning will never turn out right

You came to me in my time of need
no questions asked, just understanding
I saw the sun again, I saw the sun
and I got my way with you once again, my friend

why can't I sleep at night knowing
tomorrows morning will never turn out right
it's such a simple thing, apologizing
saying goodbye is never actually goodbye with you
Track Name: Safety Hat
You had a plan
You described it as having a dagger in your chest
So you couldn't get too close to me
I had one too, so I couldn't get close to you

Call it a selfish habit
How I consistently put myself first
Because I've been so discouraged
It's all I know now

I said I think it's better if we're friends
Loneliness feels better than second best
So I'd forget, forget like I never exist
I'd forget

Call it a selfish habit
How I consistently put myself first
Because I've been so discouraged
It's all I know now
I walked away from everything
Your good for nothing second coming

I, for one, need no help to fuck things up
It's like breathing, rather be sleeping
Between life and a lack of understanding
I flail against the corner
Between hate and crippling with fever
I've gone against my words
But I'll find my own self-validation
For the things I've done

Call it a selfish habit
How I consistently put myself first
Because I've been so discouraged
It's all I know now
I walked away from everything
Your good for nothing second coming
Forget like I never exist
There's no better time than this
Track Name: Indie Black
Who do you think I am?
And why would I walk hand in hand
with someone who doesn't think my heart is true?
I swear I'm black and blue

Severed ties can be so clean
If you'd only let them be
You'll always feel incomplete

I always get back on my feet
Even after I get home and remember
Me and my shadow were there alone
I'll inhale until I get it down
Read it out loud just to hate the way it sounds

Severed ties can be so clean
If you'd only let them be
You'll always feel incomplete
To me, you are complacency
A different place to sleep
When things get boring

That's why we say goodbye
Cause I'm a drag
and the smoke is in your eyes
