Track Name: another one about growing up
my old friends are still walking around
but they don't know me anymore and i don't know them
if you saw me now
you'd say "the hell happened to you?"
i think that's kind of rude
i only asked how you were doing
i just asked how you're doing

when we were just kids i wasn't scared i didn't care about breaking legs now the thought makes me shiver
heights make me weak
nuts make me queasy

i think i've had enough

i'm holding onto what i never really had
i'm holding onto what i always had
Track Name: why pretend?
why pretend? i haven't been okay but i show a little more teeth every day
why pretend? haven't felt quite right but i can sleep again at least

i feel alright
didn't think it'd happen so soon
i feel alright
if only just a little but i'll take a little bit

that old life caught up with me
my knees set aflame on the pavement
could it be i'm better than i ever was before?
well we'll see

i feel alright
didn't think it'd happen so soon
i feel alright
only just a little but i'll take what i can get
Track Name: alternate facts
the earth isn't speaking to itself when it groans down below the rumbles from its gut say "you can't win but you can try" the wind will rip the clothes from your skin and you'll bend

the dead they talk they're getting interviewed on your tv
spitting out their plans for their country and what it will be
your tongue won't complain my teeth won't refrain from grinding themselves to kernels

I'll spit them out and you'll heat them up and you say "we can stay in one more night and avoid the cold aisles and epoxied tile
they don't sell what we don't buy"
yeah?
they can't sell what we won't buy
Track Name: not me
who's the toy you're playing with?
who's your entertainment?
it's not me
i'm just a kid but i've grown enough to know
sympathy and empathy

you should know

if you can't take care of yourself how are you gonna take care of someone else?

i feel good
once in a while

who's the one you're gonna blame?
how much will you push aside?
it's easier
im just a kid but ive grown enough to know
if you force out pain it sinks deeper in

i should know

if you can't take care of yourself how are you gonna take care of someone else?
