Track Name: Romanticism
When I met you I couldn't accept
The way that your stare put a hole in my chest
They told me that you were not safe
But that image of you will not go away

Now when I feel like I'm going insane
Those familiar eyes erase all my pain
You don't realize the way that I feel
My song about you cannot make it real

Now I'm stagnant
I can't fucking breathe
And each passing second is eating at me
In my despondence
I formulate lies
Each harmless distortion creates my disguise
Track Name: Patience
Patience
My only virtue
Is the reason that I'm here alone
And always
These stupid daydreams
Now much more vivid
Are keeping me awake

You hide your face from me because you're so ashamed
I hide my scars from you, I know that you're afraid
I'll fucking break this down, I know I'll find a way
I'm counting down the weeks
I'm counting every day

All of this waiting for you has brought me to my knees
Here at my final hour I hope you'll look at me
Track Name: Dr. Heidegger's Experiment
You're stoic like philosophers who can't decide
If we're determined or have freedom and what that implies
So when you're telling me you're leaving me I think for a while
Of how it used to be, before all this, when you used to smile

They say the truth will set you free
But that hasn't worked for me

You said that we could live forever
Now I know that was all a lie
It's like you're cursed to seek connection
And to hide who you really are

They say the truth sets you free

Looking back on everything
I start to get the feeling like
There's something deep inside of me that's fighting for air
Looking back on everything
I start to get the feeling like
There's something deep inside of me that's fighting for air

No I won't make that mistake again
Track Name: April Showers
I'm making a list of my shortcomings
My hands ball into fists as I brace myself
For the wave of unyielding judgment
My face is calm but in time I'll break
And you may say it's below the belt but I'm over this

You've been scraping by until now
Coasting off a fake ass sense of what
You think I want to hear
You're nothing but a thrill seeker

I'm making a list of your shortcomings
And if I make it through this then it's all downhill
Because now I'm starting to see the truth here
Your backwards logic is wearing off
And I'm beginning to see things clearly so here we go

You've been scraping by until now
Coasting off a fake ass sense of what
You think I want to hear
You're nothing but a thrill seeker
Track Name: What Are Nargles?
I dreamt I was a strong-jawed wonderboy
I can feel it fading now
I see distress but there's no damsel here
There's no progress

So I'll break away
Keep on looking for a reason why you'd say
"I'll get better," in that letter, written in a mix of my blood and sweat
Not for one more day
Will I make these allowances because I
deserve better, I'll go get her, you'll watch from afar

Now I can't breathe
And you're the one to blame
