Track Name: Use Your Ouija Board
I wanna die in your house so I can haunt it. The ghost of what I've never been. Use your ouija board to speak to me. I'm in your walls. I'm in your floors. I'm the orb in your yard. I'm the chills in your spine. I'm still sleeping in the dirt, holding on to this old spot.
Track Name: Didn't Want To Cry
I didn't mean to cry in front of you. I know you don't me that well but thank you for understanding that I had too much going on. Someone destroyed my still life; my whole life for two days. Don't wanna cry myself to sleep at night. Don't wanna hold my breath and count to die. I really want to get the fuck out of my bed. I don't want no bad thoughts inside my fucking head. I'm sorry for exposing myself to you. I didn't want to cry.
Track Name: How I Thought It Would Be
Maybe if something in life was satisfying, I wouldn't always feel like dying. Nothing is ever interesting or how I thought it would be. What the fuck is wrong with me? I'm always waking up under the weather. I don't wanna feel this way.
Track Name: Madeore & S Rodriguez
Revisited in my dreams constantly in its entirety. Awake in sweat from the sound of crushing metal. Unable to open my door. Better off away than beneath the floorboards. And when we crashed, all I could see was red. Shooting pain in my spine, Mike's hand cupped with blood. I still relive the impact in my dreams and flinch at every stop.
Track Name: Heart Stained Tangerine
Got my heart racing; my beer chasing. My spit running down the back of my throat like i've been smoking non stop for days. Holding hands like we've been in love for years but this is our first time out for a few beers. I can't believe we're both twenty-one. Everything is so much more fun. Tasting like mangos. A heart stained tangerine. Six generations born on Florida soil where you'll bury me today.
