Track Name: Milk is too Acidic, Drink Crackers
It's all in the past
We both had regrets
Some I still have
I can't find comfort
In what I lack

I said I'd try
To be what you want
You said I could
Never be enough
But I'm still alone
With no comfort in what I've become

So I'm skipping stones made from old homes
And the broken bones
Of the friends that haunt the smoke in my clothes
I watched the flame flicker and fade away
And then I knew, I'd do the same
I'm holding on to what I'll never be
Two years too many of being nothing

So here's to the past
The laughs we had
I'd give it all back
If I had the chance

We both can't be happy
It's either you or me
Track Name: Pokemon Master
Street talk and all the situations that make me feel awkward
Or the words that I can't stand
So I'll try to shuffle out of every conversation
I don't want to talk about your cats or feelings of depression

'Cause it's easy to say "I'm feeling fine"
I just sleep too much, don't eat enough,
and feel like jumping from a cliff
But that's too long of a drive
So I'll just stay in bed passing the time
Thinking back to a lost kid
Box haired, socially impaired
Scared to death of a world outside of his four walls
And these blind eyes still see through broken lenses
But he can't feel a thing

It's all closing in
Nothing makes sense in a world so greed driven
I'm trying to see over the hill
But it's more oncoming traffic brought on by panic
And I'm fucked
Track Name: I Used to Have Two Pen Pals
I was the mountains
You were the sea
I parted the waves
But you dried up and left me

So I'm crumbling
Full of regret
Stuck with the hole
That you left in my chest

I am weathered
Down to my core
And what's more
I'm feeling hopeless

I begged the sky
To bring the rain
Soon to be rust
I will decay
Track Name: My Spirit Animal is...
I pretend that being OK is hiding your problems in a bed
Where I get no sleep
I'm mirroring the bad things that became a part of who I am
And I was stagnant long before I stopped feeling a thing
So I let go...

I stopped looking for hope in the cracks
On the wall where I told the world goodbye

I'm pushing off
Into the distance in the fog where I hoped the waves would crash
And tear me apart like you did
So I sank
I could never swim and it shows in the depths
Where I've been alone

Because depression got a hold
And it doesn't let go
Without taking what you love most
It's my head and the thoughts I can't control
Hating myself has become my home

I got lost somewhere along the way
But I don't want to be found
Just let me dig my own grave
Track Name: I Used to Have Two Pen Pals (Acoustic)
I was the mountains
You were the sea
I parted the waves
But you dried up and left me

So I'm crumbling
Full of regret
Stuck with the hole
That you left in my chest

I am weathered
Down to my core
And what's more
I'm feeling hopeless

I begged the sky
To bring the rain
Soon to be rust
I will decay
