Track Name: Good
Good evening, delighted you're here
In the morning I'll feel more secure
But secure like everything else
Is only compared to how I've felt

Good noon-time sun in the sky
At a slight angle to the right
It's not what's right everywhere else
I can't see what I can't see myself
Track Name: Hangnail
I'm a hangnail
Dangling from your thumb
When you pluck me off
I'll feel so numb
I just like it
When we're attached
When we're separate
I can't feel you react

Don't clip me
Don't cut me off
I can't help it
My hangin' on

Don't change me
I'm not the same
Neither are you
So who's to blame

I'm the smallest piece
Of your biggest nail
No matter what I do
I'll be destined to fail
Track Name: Moments
I don't have big dreams
I can't even fall asleep
When I should be so tired
Of all I have ever required

It so happens
That for me
Making moments
Is more important
Than memories
Track Name: Ok
What should I say
To myself today
To make it feel the same
What should I do
To make it up to you
It's up to you

I can't think straight
I can't drink this
I can't take away
What I am or what I say
Track Name: Mess
What's the word for
What hurts more
Being alone
Or feeling alone

Of course I know the word
Ignorance to all I've heard
Would be bliss
And better than this

I wanna forget
Every language
Every means to communicate
But that can wait

For now I have to try
To spell out why I cry
This seems best
To deal with this mess
