Track Name: The Internet Told Me I Have Cancer Again
Hello doctor where do I start?
I don't even know what I am grieving anymore
My stomach's in knots, I'm so tired
Must be the cancer
Tell me the truth

The internet told me I have cancer again
The internet told me I have cancer

Hello doctor where do I start?
I feel like I've been followed by death since I was 13
I feel like I'll either die tomorrow or I'll live forever
There's no in between

The internet told me I have cancer again
The internet told me I have cancer

Hello doctor where do I start?
Every time I go to sleep, it's the same thing
They aren't gone, they just live down the street
Or if I open up the backdoor, she is there
That whole week we had the same dream
That if we open up the back door she is there
That whole week we had the same dream
That if we open up the back door she is there
She is there, she is there, she is there, she is there, she is there, she is there, she is there, they are there.
Track Name: Green
Your car sits untouched
The grass grows too long
I watched your mother cry
She wore green just for you

Just for you

I laughed to myself
I think you would have too
Until your sister spoke
Stone faced and unfazed

Just for you
Track Name: Untitled
Through my front door
In my living room
I spoke to what I thought was a dead man
Hello my name is so and so
I'm glad to see you survived
Cus that shit's no joke and the worlds not laughing along

The world's not laughing along

Through my front door
In my living room
Look: the proof of my contentment
Look upon my steady hands
Look upon the one I love
And know this is what I've wanted all along

Now the world laughs along

On the first of the year
The world was quiet
The sky was grey

On the first of the year
Things remained the same
Track Name: Laying Down in the Shower
I've been trying not to get too down
But this shit's bumming me out
This shit's bumming me out

I've been trying not to get too down
But this shit's bumming me out
This shit's bumming me out

Mitch would have been 22
I spent the day alone
This shit's bumming me out
This shit's bumming me out

Digging holes for friends in hard work
This shit's bumming me out
This shit's bumming me out

It has me sitting down in the shower
Has me lying down in the shower
Has me singing songs about nothing
Has me writing songs about nothing
Track Name: The Ocean Floor Pt. 1
I feel like a stranger
I feel like a salesman
I feel quite alien
I feel my eyes growing
Who am I to decide if she lives or dies?
I'm not God and I'm barely a man

I feel like a phony
I feel like a bore and what's more
Yours is the only face I can stand to face
I'd like to say I'm sorry to all of my friends
Track Name: The Ocean Floor Pt. 2
I'll march across the ocean aided by brittle stars
The sun is fiction, it means nothing
I find myself spinning and chasing
Lights long gone

I feel like a stranger
I feel like a salesman
I feel quite alien
I feel my eyes growing
We know more about the surface of the moon
Than the bottom of the sea

(Sick guitar solo)

We will spend her last days on the lake
I wish she could speak my language
Who am I to decide if she lives or dies
I'm not God and I'm barely a man

I feel like a phony
I feel like a bore and what's more
Yours is the only face I can stand to face
I'd like to say I'm sorry to all of my friends
Track Name: Greatest Hits
Now that I have made my
Greatest hits can I
Retire to a home in the country
I'll get a 401K
I'll keep the bed made
I'll keep my car clean
I'll keep the lawn trim

Does it only get harder?
Will it ever get easier from here?

Now that I have made my
Greatest hits can I
Retire to a home by the ocean
I'll build a screened in porch
I'll make some kids or some shit
Maybe adopt a few
I'll trim the hedges too

Does it only get harder?
Will it ever get easier from here?
Track Name: 19 Forever
When I met you I was
19 I'll be
19 forever

When I met you I was
19 I'll be
19 forever
I'll live forever

Arpeggiated voices
Arpeggiated sounds
Arpeggiated voices
One note at a time
The world is too crowded
When I open up my mouth
Nothing comes out
Forget I made a sound
Track Name: Man Seeking Necromancer
I won't make it to the year 2100
I'll be long gone
I won't make it to the year 2100
I'll be long gone
No plane crashes
No car wrecks
No accidental death
I will succumb to the plague or cancer
Nothing lesser
Nothing lesser

Man seeking necromancer
Man seeking necromancer
Let's keep it casual
Man seeking necromancer

I won't make it to the year 3100
I'll be long gone
I won't make it to the year 3100
I'll be long gone
No plane crashes
No car wrecks
No overdoses here
I will succumb to the plague or polio
Nothing lesser
Nothing lesser

Man seeking necromancer
Man seeking necromancer
Let's keep it casual
Man seeking necromancer
Track Name: Until We Fall Apart
Until our bones fall apart
Until our skin falls off
I'll love you until the end
