Track Name: Knowing Smile
I was born with a chip on my shoulder
Two feet wide and three feet deep
And it grew, more and more each day
'Til it almost swallowed me

I don't wanna be the one who answers
every question with a smirk
A knowing smile not knowing anything
I don't wanna be a jerk

I was born at the end of my rope
And I was scared of the ways that I was frayed
I didn't wanna come crashing down to earth
I didn't wanna hang

It's hard as hell to build your life again
without burning it all down
It's hard as hell to start over again
when you're stuck in the same town
Track Name: Dark Thoughts II
I walk around this city with Dark Thoughts filling up my head
I got my wallet, my keys, my phone
I look at all the face and all the in between grey spaces
And will I ever call this place my home

I walk around this city with Dark Thoughts filling up my head
And I grind my teeth until their dust
I choke back all that hate, I hope it will evaporate
As I try not to cough it all back up

Why did I ever leave the house?
Track Name: Aching
I've been feeling Goddamn Distant from everything but all my aches and pains
I've become a Midwest lyric even though six months I moved away
I've been sleeping less and less, I've been vacant more and more
I don't like where this is headed

As I lie here on the floor I'm scared as I envision
Lying here for thirty years stuck in this position
Track Name: Vermont
Summer came and went and left me all alone
Just like you came and went and left me married to my phone
I waited for your call, I waited for your voice
To tell me that you're finally coming home

And when you finally called you sounded broke blue
Your voice cracked and swelled and you said you missed me too
And that was all you said, but it wasn't all I heard
It didn't take that long to see you only called for you

And when I figured you were gone for good
I figured out all the ways that it was good that you were gone
And then I figured out why I was upset
It wasn't that you left, it was all the ways you proved me wrong

And when I finally got myself up off the floor
I counted all the ways that I had always wanted more
I wanted more of me, I wanted less of you
I wanted all the ways that I was always before
