Track Name: More In, Less Out
I know what you said for so long
But in action, it doesn't add up
And then twist it and send it to me
Because without it, I'm a fraction of what I'll be

Because lately, I've been sick stale to my stomach
And I'm 800 miles from what I thought was something to lean on
I can't figure out what to do with myself in two months
That's too long away to consider what I'll be a part of

I listened loud when you said you wanted to get there
I wanted it to
I listened loud when you said you wanted to get there
I wanted it to

So paint a picture, unparalleled in color
And write me something you swear I'd feel for

So paint a picture, unparalleled in color
And write me something you swear I'd feel for
Tell me a story about how you've been acting
And act your age out for at least once in the years span
Track Name: Echo
I've been saying these undirected steps you take
Haven't payed off
Well I've been watching, and you've convinced me out
And now I'm caught between what I want
And what they want me to pursue

So what if I left too long
I'd be as estranged as all the friends behind me
And I'd act my former self
A shell of what I once was
And what I could have been
Left in dust

All I've wanted was to hold this high
Now this time I'm too far
All I've wanted was to hold this high
Now this time I'm too far

Maybe I've been waiting here for too long
I always thought I wanted out
But this hole has a niche I can lie in
At least for a little while

Cause it's always felt like I'm halfway
In and out at the same time
And I know that that's something to work on
At least for a little while
Track Name: The Plane Fell Through Clouds
Headless soaring
Four years
Glowing, glowing
In the dirty light

Elucidation
Intution
Kicking heels
Accept conduction

Headless soaring
Four years
Glowing, glowing
In the dirty light

If you really knew how
Much I've clawed my way back
I don't think you would assume
Please forget the last time
Track Name: It's Expected At This Point
It's all in your head
The forward steps you've taken
Relieve yourself to know the lie you're faking

At every step it feels like

I'm cutting corners every single time
Back and forth an endless, empty climb
And I can't erase what I put so much into
And I'm too far down, too far now to get to you

It's all in your head
The goal you've set yourself for
While moving forward you'd think you'd notice

These wax wings, glass guts

I'm cutting corners every single time
Back and forth an endless, emtpy climb
And I can't erase what I put so much into
And I'm too far down, too far now to get to you

It's true to say you seem to know how
These habits form of being let down
