Track Name: Grandstanders
Free, free to be found
Sought out, found out
See all airbrushed faces
Their every wrinkle ironed out

Dress up, best foot forward
Grandstand guests, veiled porters
Dress up, best foot forward
Grandstand guests, we’re all guests

Please receive this mailshot
Burst at this patter, resound
Me, listen to me
All eyes on me, pipe down
Track Name: Creepy
The line’s moving forward
I keep getting closer
All the time is folding in
The motion is creeping me out

I’m pent up and bold
From keeping my corner
All the time is folding in
The comedown is wearing me out
Track Name: Dissolve It
Born then out
Shoeshine mouth
Statue still
Worn-in crown
Poor unproud
Fashion film

You dissolve but
You never really wash out

Corks are out
Tables flowered
Pardoned still
Slow it down
Rationale
Has me now
Track Name: Habit
Within arm’s reach
It’s getting to you
Take what you need
Pick at the view

You’re on a saltless land
Roots for feet
Reel in your outstretched hands
Line your cheeks

Weathered hearts seek
Forbidding ensues
Fake what you need
Sick of the view

Want it, you can have it
Try it, form a habit

You’re thinking all you can
Touch you keep
Gathered like falling sand
Bygone dreams
Track Name: No One's Around You
Waiting on the gravel
Found out where my blood is
Nails from the construction
In the tips of my hands

Later on the drive
It would come into focus
Trying to catch the sun
On the back of your neck

They’ll get you thinking that
No one’s around you
They’ll have you believing that
No one’s around you

Backyard woods you showed me
How we were different
Glue me to your body
Lay me down on the dirt
Track Name: Not Enough
We’re looking for
Something to keep us bored
The sift and sort
A running fast toward

From cue to queue
We wade our way through
This bordered mass
These bits of shared food
Through and through
and through and through

It’s not enough for you
When there’s more

I look for you
In letter-filled rooms
The colors blur
Afraid they’ll dim soon
Sight unfound, come visiting
Track Name: Alligator
I compare you to an alligator
You bit off my head
Someone told me it was simulated
You’re already dead

Took the elevator to the top
And got off
Said you’d come and join me in the morning
Up the block

I was waiting patiently
You were swimming over me

When I told you I would think it over
I already had
There’s a weight off of your other shoulder
You ask if I’m mad

Took the elevator to the top
And got off
Said you’d come and join me in the morning
Up the block

I compare you to an alligator
You slithered away
Hanging over other simulators
And now I’m okay
Track Name: Someone Else
Watching someone else
Watching someone again
Track Name: Mantra
Fortune crazy
Building in the dark again
Fumbling for the perfect piece
Wishing for the world to see

Mantra maybe
Stacking up yourself and then
Pulling for a victory
A swimmer sucking oxygen

Venture safely
Owning what you feared you’d make
Forgettable history
Fuck it, let’s just celebrate

Is this it?
It’s underwhelming

The year is gonna pass by
You’re turning away from me
But I don’t have enough time
To follow it forward
