Track Name: No Big Deal
I don't want this to be an everyday thing.
I don't even want to try and hang onto this string,
that pulls me in circles of repeating history.
Is this how you want it to be?

No big deal, no big deal, I've got nothing left to feel.
You're not the only one with a heart made out of steel.
Track Name: Energy
I've got this aching hole in my chest that lets me know you're the best.
Concrete filling, I am a building.
An apartment complex for you, dear.
As long as you are near I'll always be here.
I can't wait forever,
I will erode in time.

So here's my chance
Just give me a glance
Just lower your defense
It's always been this way since...

Please let me in.
Don't keep me out.
Track Name: Ded
Today is the day I will make myself
Tomorrow I'm sure I will break myself
We build ourselves up to the fall
'till we have nothing at all.

Everyday I feel my grip tightening
And I know yours is lightening
And I know there's nothing I can do.
There's nothing I can do without you.
Track Name: Oatmeal
Five hours away is five hours too far
When I see you can we sleep in my car?

I'll be waiting by your gate,
To walk you to your door.
We'll stay up late,
I wish that I could see you more.

One way or another I will make this work.
This distance, I dismiss it,
Just call me.
Track Name: Cleft: The Boy Chin Wonder
I have got no friends to be,
Right here when I need them to be.
I have got no friends to see,
Everything that I need them to see.

Is it wrong if this is where I say?
Is it right if I go away?

So tell me if I'm wrong:
This is not where I belong.
I want to see the states.
This is not my fate.
