Track Name: Settled
I bottomed out beneath a bridge on Metropolitan and Driggs
I went at it for a while
This place is like an anthole
I’m leaving for the water
It’s time that I go back to a place I should’ve been born
It’s not so far away
But I shake like a painting on the sea, a leaf in the trees

Have I made myself clear?
You’re in the corner of my brain ad I’ve seen the line go slack
If I’ve always been this way
Then I own up to it
But I’m still sorry that I shake like a painting on the sea, a leaf in the trees

There’s something to be said
So if I can just sit here
I’ll find the words to break in
A break beneath the surface
Some bad blood that’s settled
Like dawn on the sea, you mean everything to me
Track Name: Built For
You were right
I gave away my only out
It’s a trouble that I keep close to my chest
But I still feel it all the same

I swear I’m not this stark
But I’ve never been one with words in my mouth

It’s a good thing I’m a decade away from that day
Because I can’t hold myself up
Barely make it through a day.

You can’t hear the crickets sing like you did when you were my age
You’re in the ground now I know
I’m begging on your bones to bring me order, accords
I’ve been in the grind since then

It’s a good thing I’m a decade away from that day
Because I can’t hold myself up
Barely make it through these days

I said it to you and I’ll say it again
I lost more than a best friend
I lost my blood
I lost everything with you
The day you died I wish I said those words that I could never find
