An Amputee 04:31
My arms and my legs are intact and they're the only things that remain that way But my heart and the pegs are in fact whole, and I'll admit I'm not surprised They're the ones that I used to fill the holes that you awled out in my sleep And yet occasionally I'm not surprised when they pry out and they seep Something kept you up that night, but I know it wasn't me Because that night was the first in a long time when I finally slept soundly I could deny it until the end, but I knew that was what it would be But I still think I would do it again, discounting the contingency And I'm not feeling these things that I feel that I should So I'll just clear these doubts inside your head But I don't know what's inside of mine 'Cause last time I opened up, I picked it off the ground And I'm not feeling these things that I feel that I should So I'll just clear these doubts inside my head But I don't know what's inside of yours 'Cause last time I tore it off, I could not reattach So now I'm an amputee, or so it seems Even though I still have my extremities You're the arms of my heart and the legs of my mind And I can't cut them off even though I don't try And I still miss you, you see, but do you me 'Cause I still have quite a bit for these past three years
2.
It's like I am trapped and I can't get out As much as I wish I could simply have no doubt But doubt's a part of me like I'm a part of you And the hardest part of this is you're a part of me now I'm tired of these games that you're playing with my head And I am stuck in a race that I can't win You have fallen at my back, and there's a ribbon at my front And I don't which way that I should run And I guess if I were you Then I would l doubt me too But that's just the way I am I'm tired of these games that you're playing with my head And everything you've ever felt, now it seems it's dead And I'm trying all I can to bring it back to life With enough emotion just so I can dam this flood

Wile E. 02:30
And believe me baby when I say I wanna fall in love But I'm just scared of what is at the bottom And what will happen when I hit the ground, and you hit it running And I am lying flat on my face I tell you that I am just fine, because I am Yet, I am delightfully blind where I stand Right here in the middle of this and I can't seem To be a mediator of sorts; destroy boundaries But when you introduced yourself I thought I couldn't speak Like I can't know when I see the truth But there's still no one closer but you But you never changed; I changed you But you peel me off, and you pick me up, and you dust me down And I will tell myself that I can love again
4.
Landline 02:28
My love, my lungs, my lone landline How can I reach you if you're not from my time My love, my lungs, my lone landline How can I reach you if you're not from my time I'll wait for you I'll wait for you But as you progress in time, well so do I And it's the middle of the night And so my eyes are starting to close Well that's how it goes, so here it goes again
5.
A Macramist 04:41
You're a macramist When it comes to stomachs And I'm an masochist When it comes to you And I can't get you out of my head You're an alchemist When it comes to hearts And I'm a pragmatist When it comes to you But I can't get you out of my head
6.
You dawn on your disguise of finch eyes And you're skittering uncontrollably You made me feel how I'm falling In love with falling in love with you We're losing time, so let's travel west And we'll find all that we'll ever need You dawn on your disguise of finch eyes And you're skittering uncontrollably
7.
Eighteen thousand miles per hour won’t seem like much up there Cocoons in my stomach hatch, but I am not aware Far above the birds and clouds; the whole world on display Seas of black and rays of light; a blue dot sent astray And I am falling impossibly fast Your pull keeps me on orbital paths
8.
Well hey, who am I trying to impress? Fate's gotta have time to digress And say, while I do, I'll admire your dress Well it looks so good twenty seven hundred miles away Should I just stay in denial and stay? Could you just stay for a while and lay next to me? Well darkness comes much closer for me So you know we don't have much time But we'll spend most of it counting down And finally realizing that I'm falling You say the same for you and I would catch you if I could We finally feel the things we've never fully understood And to think it all began on simple curiosity And now I'm just shy of terminal velocity And when I hit, I'll hit hard
9.
I fell, and when I hit, I hit hard I'm fallen; and lifted in love
10.
I'm in love with an aquatic acrobat But I can't breath underwater But I can't breath without you I'm a land lover; you're a sea dweller And it's hard for us to move from state to state And as the air fills my lungs, the water fills your gills I'm not trying to forget you I'm not trying to forget you But my mind slips with these ships Taking you anywhere but home I'm not trying to forget you I swear I'm not trying to forget you But my mind slips with these trips Taking me anywhere but where you are I'm not trying to forget you I swear I'm not trying to forget you But my mind slips with these ships Taking you anywhere but home I'm not trying to forget you I swear that I will never forget you But my lungs drip with these quips Telling me that I don't know how to feel But I don't know how to feel
