Track Name: Ambulance Faces
heres what i remember from one of the nights that i almost died,
theres two
it was late at night riding my cursed green bike
i saw the stars and was hit by a car from behind
i can remember ambulance faces
looking down on me
cutting my clothes in pieces
for two whole months i was laid up, stapled, and cracked
chewing up my pills just to make the pain stay back
but it always found a way
i can remember ambulance faces
looking down on me
cutting my clothes in pieces
i didnt appreciate all of the folks who spread the rumors surrounding
it all
but i thank all the people i love, for being around for it all
its like watching your own funeral
its like watching your own funeral
Track Name: Locked Out
locked out of the house with no shoes on my feet
the buzzer is incorrect like the names of the street
i'll sit on the roof and watch the sunlight rise
wrapped up in this scarf over these cold weary eyes
i dont wanna know, how nice or how warm it is inside
i'll wait in the stairwell or the roof where i'll hide
from all the people who think im just there to rob them
im just trying to stay warm till i find my friends
i would make a call but itll cost all my change
a person wearing no shoes must look fucking so strange
to all the people who walk out and wont listen to my pleas
my bags are up stairs and i dont know this city
new york is pretty, but not to the desperate
sitting on a stairwell trying not to get arrested
of all of these things that i've learned through this night
its better to stay inside that run into the night
Track Name: Leave A Light
showed you my hands, feel me
mother understand, heal me
open close my eyes, people
coming all night, i said
what if this is life forever, cause right now it feels like a while
what if it never gets better, counting the seconds to the pain
medication
i found out i broke more than bone
showed you my hands, feel me
mother understand, heal me
what if this is life forever, cause right now it feels like a while
what if it never gets better, counting the seconds to the pain
medication
medicate medicate
i found watson 315
i said leave a light
Track Name: Bottom Of The Pool
one day we'll all talk pretty too
that puts your through the red lights
put right in front of you
hold my strings to keep my hands moving
i lost my grips, they fell to the bottom of the pool
this is what you need, this is what you got
i know its not a lot, but it'll have to do
i want to know what it is that i learn from time
if theres something it feels my head so i start to rhyme
this is what you need, this is what you got
i lost my grips they fell to the bottom of the pool
keep trying to frustrate me you know i wont lose my cool
this is what you need, this is what you got
i know its not alot but itll have to do
this is what you need, this is what you got, i know its not a lot
Track Name: Mirrors
open my fate cause the wind may blow
soon my life opened hand
i forged my life inside the window
never set sail no open sail sign
your last grasp with broken hand
one more broken hand
i looked in the mirror for a second
realized i didnt like whats in it
the painted walls behind me covered up the cracks of relic
that show that these walls are old
and time aint too nice
i closed my eyes, cause the light was bright
held you high too soon
it wasnt too long before the windows gone
and my fate closed it hand
i looked in the mirror for a second
realized i didnt like whats in it
the painted walls behind me covered up the cracks of relic
that show that these walls are old
and time aint too nice
Track Name: Sway
i stopped to sway, it was natural
and i looked around just to see if you saw
i stopped to sway, it was natural
and i asked myself what side you on
and i asked myself what side you on
and i fell to my knees
Track Name: Rules
pull the covers over my head, turn the tv off put them babes to bed
theres no eyes when the lights go off, blacked out from the pillow talk
and if you need it to sleep, you need it to dream
i could tell you the truth, but you know its the rule
the rule is just a lie, we tell ourselves that this love is still alive
the rule is just a lie, we tell ourselves that this love is burning
afire
and if you need it to sleep, you need it to dream
i could tell you the truth, but you know its the rule
Track Name: Cranes
buildings springing up all around
too many places a good time cant be found
neighborhood is all closed off
tearing up the streets at the end of my block
hear the people outside screaming gentrify
they never had a home
i know
who'd wanna raise their own in a track home town
pretty sad people all hanging around
neighborhood is all closed off
tearing up the streets at the end of my block
and i cant find a way
hear the people outside, screaming gentrify
they never had a home
lemme crawl upside down, pretty sad people all hanging around
you know ive never cried for you
so many years and we're still around
pretty sad people all hanging around, you know ive never cried for you
i know
who'd wanna raise their own in a track home town
pretty sad people all hanging around
Track Name: Message To A Friend
cross me off your list of people to fight you
theres plenty more to spar
with sub reasons in counting
of all the names i never figured mine was on top
to all the people you made turn their backs
i apologize
to all the houses we got thrown from
the times we were outside
and i wish we werent, i wish we werent
Track Name: Snow Day
wake up, wake up
put on your nicest shoes and a collared shirt
to go to jail today
i laid in bed staring at the ceiling
rolled over, to stare at you
cause i thought this was the last time
that i'd be next to you
even jail closes when it snows
its not something that we all know
even jail closes when it snows
not something that we all know
laid in bed staring at the ceiling
rolled over to stare at you
laid in bed staring at the ceiling
cause i thought this was the last time
i'd be next to you
