Heavy Waves 03:23
I, I’m a washed up empty shell, blind, from an island, left to dwell You’re the only one who sees me in this light, why can’t I ever be just what you like? Blue, as the sea I derive from, You, you better see that you should run, Hold, hold me up to your ears, can’t hear no sound, roll, just roll your eyes and let me drown You’re the only one who sees me in this light, Why can’t I ever be just what you like?

If, if I had a dollar for every time my mind just took a ride, decided sailing off to sea With, with every single collar pulling on my neck just like a wreck, squeezing the life right out of me Don't Feel Alone Don't Feel Alone If, if I had a brain-freeze for everyone I run from taking off I'd seize up too eventually Don't Feel Alone Don't Feel Alone Am I making any sense? 'Cause time and time again it's nice to know that others feel the same way Don't Feel Alone Don't Feel Alone

She shoots me down into the ground She leaves me speechless now my mouth won’t make a She runs me down into the ground, She leaves me headless now I don’t think I can Drown, drown, drown She shoots me down into the ground She leaves me speechless now my mouth won’t make a Sound, sound, sound sound Sound, sound, sound sound, sound, sound She leaves me speechless, now my mouth won’t make a sound, sound, sound, sound, sound, sound, sound, sound

No Return 02:40
They taste your fear, dry tongue, we never shared The world missed out on you, don’t fade into rearview Statutory vape, cannibalistic summer fakes, missionary, mission’s off, I’ll be found when you are lost Statutory vape, cannibalistic summer fakes They taste your fear, wet tongue,we always shared The world missed out on you, as you fade into rearview No return!

My ears cannot hear a thing, don’t wait for me My eyes are closed and I can’t see, don’t wait for me My mouth is shut and I can’t speak, don’t wait for me My feet won’t run to sympathy, don’t wait for me I, I give it all that I can I, I give it all but I cannot do it patiently I, I give it all that i am, I, I’ll bet you take my soul for a sponge of reality You’re in a world so easily, don’t wait for me That feeling calms so peacefully, don’t wait for me Warm sunshine coasts along the peak, don’t wait for me, Your life is drawn out gracefully, don’t wait for me I, I give it all that I can I, I give it all but I cannot do it patiently I, I give it all that I am, I, I'll bet you take my soul for a sponge of reality I couldn’t bring myself to this, don’t wait for me I couldn’t dream of lesser plans, don’t wait for me I shut you out, I’ll do it again, don’t wait for me, I’d rather be a lonely mess, don’t wait for me I, I give it all that I can I, I give it all but I cannot do it patiently
