Track Name: my moon
if i were the ocean, i would pull back for you
i could fill up for you; you are the moon
and i am but the sea, the wide blue, filling up for you
my moon, my moon, you're my moon

they don't know why i love you like i do
and gravity don't have a thing to do
with you or me

my moon, my moon, you're my moon

i made a tidal wave just to get close to you
my moon
Track Name: forget me
did you forget me
i wish i could say that i never left
sorry just sounds stupid and quiet
in this house
did you forget me
letters don't talk
and my crying's too loud
paper's no palm,
and i wonder where yours are at
paper's no palm
and i bet you'd laugh at that
did you forget me
please forget me
cigarette out like our dying light
i could love you if you would let me
did you forget me
please come get me
please come get me
Track Name: this heart
this heart is tired and old
this heart is charcoal and cold
this heart throws the white flag when it gets hard, you know
i give up i give in to the whole of your skin
i give up i give in when you let go i'll give in
i give up i give in am i doing this again
we cannot go back
this heart's been sleeping for miles
this heart can't wait to see you
this heart doesn't want to convince you that
this heart will not collapse
what are you doing in these chambers
why are you sleeping in my ventricles
Track Name: the machine
don't touch me i'm sleeping, got a bag of bones i've been keeping
why you why you sick
your hands are like a war memorial
why are you sick
we shaved your head cause your hair was falling out
why are you sick all the time
the sounds of the machine are the most comforting thing
knowing your alive
beep beep beep beep beep beep beep beep

lord, lord. you took my baby
got an empty house with two bathtubs i want to drown in them
lord, lord you took my baby
got an empty house with two bathtubs i want to drown in them
