Track Name: Pockets
You stuck a note in my coat pocket explaining everything
You only had the sweetest things to say about me
Now I really need to be where you are, but it's just too far away
I couldn't afford the plane ticket anyway

When you come back

I will be here

I finally left the states with an ache for adventure and a chance to see some friends
I assumed you had forgotten me by then
So, I went the other way, shared a train with strangers in search of something new
But when I reached the peak my thoughts raced back to you

When I get back

You won't be there
Track Name: Veggie Tales
It was the sun
It called me out in the open heat
Under a tree I fell asleep in the autumn glow
This used to be my favorite spot
Lulled beneath the waving palms
But this time when I closed my eyes
You crushed my fucking skull

And now I'm daft as a vegetable
And I have never felt more comfortable
In my skin, in my bones

And when I'm found
Oh, I assume there won't be much to see
Please tell my mom
Tell my brother I was smiling ear to ear

And to my friends
Always searching for a better view
Please keep in mind
Always be happy in the things you do

And don't be sad at what I lost
I loved my life and laughed a lot
And as the vultures picked me clean
I felt nothing at all

Sunlight, smiles, good dreams
Were my last conscious thoughts.
Track Name: Franny
You're always in a stellar mood when you ask me around
I love the way your face lights up
It's mostly what I'm thinking about
Walking in the dark singing thoughts out loud

I love your little made up melodies that you sing 'round the house
I cannot take my eyes off you
I'm sure you probably know by now
Eyes locked on the couch, kissing on the mouth

I need more cuddles to sleep
I want more coffee and late night grilled cheese
I need more fingers with your hair between
And your hands on me

You know how to make me blush before you've opened your mouth
I love the way your gaze meets mine
Glowing beams spark secretive lines
Written in two books, we're both on the hook

'Cause I wanna sing you words that make you feel where I am
I never want to leave your bed
I think about it on the drive home
Smiling in the sun, smiling in the sun

I need more cuddles to sleep
I want more house shows where you get to sing
I need more fingers with your hair between
And your hands on me, immediately
Track Name: Hi, horses.
I'm taking a deep breath
I'm going for a walk gonna clear my head
You said some really hurtful shit
And I don't want any part in this
And you're too drunk now
And your high horse is a hateful, alcoholic, prick
It's best that you climb down from him

Because I've seen the evils of the night
And they look a lot like you
You're just the muse that they're working through
What a sorry excuse

You're taking a deep breath
You can't recall the void without proper proof
And when it finally gets to you, the scapegoat sings the same old tune
And it feels so good to hear you rub it in
I don't need your apology
Please stay the fuck away from me

Because I've seen the evils of the night
And they look a lot like you
You're just the muse that they're working through
What a sorry excuse

What's it gonna take to change you?
I hope you get the help that you're needing
The way you're living is gonna kill ya
