Track Name: The Moon
lemon water in a paper cup
I cross the street from where you grew up
time is a thing that happens when we touch
it took me six months to rebuild the moon from
the pieces of it that I texted you
now I just have to figure out how to be myself

how to be glad
how to be alone

start a band with acoustic guitars
make a loud noise to find where you are
store it on hard drives in a million rooms
wireless hands on a wireless face
come down to touch me from outer space
there were nights when I just wanted to be like you

to be a girl
to be the moon

lemon water in a paper cup
I cross the street from where you grew up
time is a thing that happens when we touch
it took me six months to find the moon from
the pieces of it that I texted you
now I just have to figure out how to be myself

how to be glad
how to be alone
Track Name: Change Your Mind
we were the teenage drama queens
smoking in the bathroom when we shouldn't be
getting high between the restroom walls
under quarantine
waiting for the semester to fall to fall to fall through to infinity
you and I can't decide
we changed our minds all the time

between abilify (change your mind)
and suicide (change your mind)
we change our minds
we change our minds
you changed your mind

I was stumbling toward middle age
hiding in a movie theater with the money I made
getting high between the restroom walls
and through the movie screen
collecting all my missed calls
for eternity

because you and I can't decide
we change our minds all the time

between abilify
or suicide

change your mind
Track Name: Butterflies
after the next band plays
then I might have another cigarette while you check on the internet
and tell me about your day
I’ve got on my favorite disguise but only you ever recognize I’m hiding
so call me out call me call me out
it’s been so long since we got high

the art of hiding in plain sight

my sister’s doing okay my mom said
she took herself to the hospital she knew that she needed help
that’s better than she was last year
when the angels came and told her lies and filled her veins with butterflies
I pulled them out I pulled them out I pulled them out
and now I’m tired and I want to die

in your eyes hide me in plain sight
Track Name: The Universe
make another promise to yourself
if one of those assholes doesn't treat you well
he can fuck himself he can't see you at all
it's a ladder to you but to him it's a wall

we go driving round in my fantasy
it's you the moon and the wifi and me
offer a cigarette to the sky
it doesn't have to worry because it's never going to die

and we cruise like that through the universe
making something valuable out of the hurt
that's how you work

I know you know to be vulnerable
is the way to be powerful
in the time before we die
you cried I starved til I disappeared
it rained sometimes the coast was never clear
in the time before we die

talking in tongues with boys and girls
I slept alone at the end of the world
meet me in the bright spot of the screen
we pass it back and forth until we know what it means

some of them are finally starting to see
it's a spectrum no one has to be one thing
from your hands to your feet to our breath in the air
there was a gender once and now it's not there

meanwhile at the end of our lives
what we will we be if we never tried

I know you know we're not coming back
we talk talk talk here comes a heart attack
for everyone that we love
our sisters always in the hospital
our brothers walk in endless circles
in the time before we die
you starved I dreamed I might disappear
it rained sometimes the coast was never clear
in the time before we die
I'm singing nothing can stop us now
mom and dad and everyone we care about
in the time before we die

from my mouth to the texts to the words in my chest
in the end you were the one who knew me best
Track Name: Philosophy
touching pages
moonlight in phases
UFO touchdown
new phone
breakdown
drama
late night
I wait all night
with flashbacks
cigarettes
and another cigarette
no regret
on both sides
space time
your mouth on my mind
that time I told you everything
now you're the one who knows

full moon
through windows
I read and let go
of movie screens
philosophy
of getting high
psychology
of old friends
and new plans
of breakdowns
your hands
photographs
that disappear
my body
faraway from here

a UFO
a spotlight
change me
change my life

come back for me or I'll die
or I'll die
come back for me because you're the one who
the only one who
you're the one who knows
Track Name: Neurons
I see you on my phone sometimes
when whatever happens to cross your mind
flies across the universe
where all our words combine with stars
whatever I am with whatever you are

and what you said hangs in the air
waiting for your dad to see it there
it's hard to know what makes him up
when the people we love get tangled in us

all the neurons in your mind
spell out ideas with the neurons in mine
it's hard to know what makes us up
when the people we lose get tangled in us

and what you said hangs in the air
waiting for your dad to see it there
maybe he'll never understand but it's still
his hands inside your hands
like your mother's face
sleeping under your face
even after she has gone away

I see you on my phone sometimes
and I feel your time inside my time
it's hard to know what makes you up
when the people we love get tangled in us

it's hard to know what makes us up
when the people we lose get tangled in us
