Track Name: Mid Twenty Something
Functionless but ever so inviting
Bittersweet yet never complimentary
An acquired sort of palette
Desired but you never had to have it
Window shopped and sized
Underwhelmed and overstayed it's time

Lately I've been thinking about the way
We pick up too many objects and never find their proper place

Put me back in frame
Hang me up for the rest of my days
A subtle conversation piece
Of worn and tattered tapestry
Put me back in frame
Just nail me down for the rest of my days
I don't think that's a debt that I could repay

Sat in storefront windows
Waiting for an honest and blue collared family to resurrect me
Surely this Main Street flat, has gotten a bit too cozy
But I'll be damned if I let this be
My final fucking resting place

I've been thinking about the way that I never found our proper place
But I found comfort in knowing that every grain of sand could find ocean one day
And now the glass inside me resonates
Track Name: Sad Is The New Black
I've been at a loss for words
Weighing my options
Determining self worth
Blood orange with envy
That all of my friends
Have something they're inspired to
Be while they're fast asleep

Pick up pick up your head, sit up straight
Face the consequences
Pick up pick up your head, sit up straight
Put your hands where I can see
Daydreams, encompass me

Heaven forbid, cutting loses only to sacrifice ourselves
I traded everything I owned to find
Some worth in someone else
Heaven forbid, cutting loses only to sacrifice ourselves
I traded everything I owned to find
Some worth in anyone else
Heaven forbid

What's fair market value for 23
And no idea what I'm doing
Beat red and angry
That all of my friends
Don't have the heart to tell me
It's my own life I've been ruining 

I've been at a loss for word
Weighing my options
I've been at a loss for words
Determining self worth
Heaven forbid
