Track Name: Sun
Edged out again
A second choice, a second wind
Being left alone
Is beautifully alright

In the light of the moon
I saw myself get up too soon
To leave the room i half assumed
Would be my tomb
Raise my hands to the ceiling
On this moonlit evening
Deceived & receding
Surrendered & retreating

Dimly dive
Dying skyline

At last my spark is gone
I lit up a thousand rooms
But now i'm done
At the end of the day
I'm glad those rooms could glimpse my smiling face
Track Name: Pumpkin Patch
Pumpkin patch
Searching for the perfect match
Not in this batch

I left my keys in my car
While it was still running
I guess i’ll keep on running

Every connection up till now
Has been fake anyhow

Cross my legs & pass the time
Cross my fingers when you cross my mind

Every connection up till now
Has been fake anyhow

A stepping stone
I step alone
A stepping stone
Into unknown
A stepping stone
I don’t feel grown
A stepping stone
I’m not alone
Track Name: Divide
Misplaced shame
Replacing something
More productive
Imitated insight is insane
Illuminate
Roman candle flame
Independence Day
Deny
Defy
Divide
Track Name: Re:Quitting
Ive lost control
Of my car stereo
Static sound
Swells in the background

Returning
Level out
Apologize for something
I don’t care about

Even if I could manage to stick it out
I’d still be waking up for something I could live without
I just need to find
A way to spend my time
That was never hard back when I had my mind

Responding
Responsibly
Reacting without rushing
Towards conclusions I can't see

Even if I could somehow still persevere
The repercussions would be stronger & much more severe
Start of something new
What it does to you

If I could communicate
My point succinctly
& not create
Another world
Of thought
From a few words

Then maybe everyday
I could speak to what I want to say
& never have to feel this way

Mistyping misspeaking
Mistaking my meaning
Missing the point again
Missed it before I began

Re: Quitting
Track Name: Neutrality
Don’t tell me I have to choose
Which one of you I have to lose
If you made me decide
I probably couldn’t pick a side

Neutrality
Comes easy to me
Mutually
Faking a memory

Don't tell me I have to prove
Anything I say to you
From now on...
I’m moving on
From anything I think is wrong

Vulnerability
Emotionally
Spiritually
Important to me

I am tired of myself
Too wired to rewire
I am gonna take a break
From what I thought was everything
