Track Name: Object Permanence
Alchemy in plastic cups
Sitting on a balcony
Looking up
Wonder how we fell so low
Never ending game of
Marco polo

I close my eyes
Knowing that you are still there
Whisper your name
It floats away on chill air

Out of sight
Not our of mind
Though you left me behind
Out of reach
But I still feel you
I still feel you here
But can you feel me
Can you feel me
Can you feel me

Take a breath and wash it down
Here’s to always having you around
What a bittersweet persistence
Playing out this Peak-a-boo existence

I close myself
Off till I can’t hear a thing
Only the echoes of you
That continue to ring

Out of sight
Not our of mind
Though you left me behind
Out of reach
But I still feel you
I still feel you

But can you feel me
Can you feel me

I just can’t believe
Did you really leave me all alone
On my own
Must be some mistake
Don’t think I can make it
Without you
If it’s true

But I still feel you
I still feel you
I still feel you
Track Name: This Old House
The cupboards are cluttered
With porcelain mugs
Cool to my fingers
Yet warming my blood
This isn’t my house
Isn’t my home
Anymore
Anymore
oh

The backroom of heirlooms
Of notebooks are chairs
The dust made of strangers
Is thick in the air
I’m breathing them in
Breathing them in to
My lungs
Lungs
Oh

We never met
But I can bet you
Learned the lullaby
Of creaky wooden floors
We never met
But I can bet you
Will learn to lock
The back door

The walls have been painted
And picture frames hung
I don’t know the faces
Heroes go unsung
What else have we shared
What else have cared
For
Oh
Oh

We never met
But I can bet you
Love the way the air vents
Hum when nights are cold
We never met
But I can bet you
Love the garden when
The sun is turning gold
We never met
But I can bet you
Don’t appreciate
the wooded hills out back
We never met
But I can bet
Yea, I can bet

There’s a golfer in the house
I found his clubs
I found her clubs
Fingerprints are everywhere
I should have found myself
Some gloves
So I’ll take a swing or two
Everything inside this house is new
It’s all so new

I never knew
What I had
I never knew
What I had
Track Name: Morning Alarms
Six a.m. I feel disgusted
With myself
I’ve been drooling,
Mouth feel rusted shut
Can’t see a thing
My eyes still crusted, oh
Morning people
Can’t be trusted

I lose my teeth in my sleep
So hard to keep myself together
I just can’t keep myself together
I lose my teeth in my sleep
So hard to keep myself together
I just can’t keep myself together

Lie in bed
Awaiting a slow death
Haunted by my own
Stale, morning breath, oh
Brush my teeth
They’re all still there, I guess
Still I can’t help
Feeling like a mess

I lose my teeth in my sleep
So hard to keep myself together
I just can’t keep myself together
I lose my teeth in my sleep
So hard to keep myself together
I just can’t keep myself together

Morning alarms
I’m already mourning the arms
That held me in my dreams
I know that they’re long gone
I know that they’re long gone
Morning alarms
I’m already mourning the arms
That held me in my dreams
I know that they’re long gone
They’re long gone
They’re long gone

Back in bed
I’m staring at the walls
Wondering what happens
If they fall
Would I feel free
Or would I feel nothing at all
Here and now
It just makes me feel small

I lose my teeth in my sleep
So hard to keep myself together
I just can’t keep myself together

Morning alarms, oh
Morning alarms, oh
Morning alarms, oh
Morning alarms, oh
Track Name: Landlocked
But it doesn’t come so easily

I remember missing you
But I don’t remember why
I recall dismiss you
From my life

We built a house of sticks and stones
A simple place to call our own
When the wind blew
That’s when I knew
You weren’t strong
Enough

I remember missing you
But I don’t remember why
I recall dismiss you
From my life

In my head I’m all alone
Island fortress, island home
In my head I’m all alone
Island fortress, island home
Home
