Track Name: Eyes like Oceans
blue eyed girl in the back of the mall,
i think I’m giving up
because things aren’t how they were when we first met
when i thought growing up was everything TV made it to be
i wanna run away run with you but i have no where to go; no place to call my own.

listen close to the sound of my voice
the way it fluctuates and quivers when you’re next to me
its world war three but its going on between butterflies and moths inside my gut
i wanna keep my eyes shut
because theres nothing i wanna see besides your eyes staring across from me

(like oceans)
your eyes are like tiny little seas
and your lips feel like fire when they whisper close to me
no one told me that love was the sweetest disease
i promise things will start to look up for us.

oh my god, if you could just see yourself the way i do
i wanna know everything about you so i can know more about myself
i guess this is everything TV made it to be
Im gonna run away with you, it doesn’t matter if we don’t have a place to go
you will always be my home.

and in the future
when i hear this song it’ll me cry too.
Track Name: Drums of Apathy
You deface your currency
with devil horns and vampire teeth
on American monarchy
I love I love I love to beat the drums of my apathy.

disobey the daunting seas
your mother would have wanted these
you're American monarchy
I love I love I love to beat the drums of my apathy.
Track Name: nightsky
Do you feel like watching the night sky cause we've got nothing better to do?
I feel like i've been so careless but in reality i haven't a clue
Do you feel like we're puzzle pieces?
We're coming together at last.
I feel like its been forever since I got to hear you laugh.
