Track Name: ghost
i wanna let go of everything
i want to finally find peace of mind
erase all of anything
set the past up to rewind, i know that i'm

missing on the inside
and gone from everything we've ever known
i'm empty on the outside and i
just want you to know
i'm a ghost, i'm a ghost
i know that i left you behind, but i don't know
where to go, i don't know where is home
i know, i just know
i know i'm a ghost

i wanna run away
i wanna be the change i always tried so hard to make
just wanna stay in one place
and i know, i know it's impossible to hide
the meaning inside, i know that i'm
not making easy peace of mind, i know that i'm

missing on the inside
and gone from everything we've ever known
i'm empty on the outside and i
just want you to know
i'm a ghost, i'm a ghost
i know that i left you behind, but i don't know
where to go, i don't know where is home
i know, i just know
i know i'm a ghost

i don't know
i don't know where is home
i don't know
Track Name: men working in trees
men working in the trees
are reminiscent of everything about me
the mystique and the intrigue
satisfy my every need and belief

deep in woods i find my mind
the river flowing brings my spirit to the outside
i hope you're happy, i hope you're alright
i'm under the bridge obscured by pale sunlight

blanket ourselves in silence
i shade my eyes behind layers of leaves and violet
looking back i'm unwinding
oh elder tree please help me find it

the strength of men working in trees
the forest floor crumbling beneath and all around me
the birds keep singing in the breeze
but all they say is cloaked in cliché and allegory
Track Name: to frank and john
i shouldve read more of the books my teachers taught
i shouldve understood the life my parents bought me

i heard that you had cancer, i heard you were retired
i heard you were still teaching, im known to be a liar
i think i was afraid to reach my hand out
i think i was afraid to feel at all
Track Name: skin
i've been described as being rough around the edges
i'm known to lose my thoughts in a maze of tangled hedges
pretending to be anything more than me
is overwrought and exhausting
i look in the mirror and see these tired eyes
and your darkened room and i

i think of everything, and nothing at the same time

i wish i was less selfish almost all the time
i wish that i could help you, but your problems are not mine
i set these boundaries for everyone but me
i let new people in, only to shrink into the skin you left me

halloween night
something's not right inside
i feel you're empty with me beside you
there was one night
i felt so cold inside, despite your warm embrace
and your hair brushing my face

i wish i was less selfish almost all the time
i wish that i could help you, but your problems are not mine
i set these boundaries for everyone but me
i let new people in, only to shrink into the skin you left me
Track Name: carpal tunnel
the shaking won't stop so i can't grasp my head
empty rooms left a mess while i live with unrest
on the spectrum of life i'm a dark silhouette
can't connect all the stress 'cause i can't hold a pen

i have said i'm a ghost but i yearn to be seen
all that's left, all of me is on you to believe
reminisce, take a step, look away from the scene
left the ground underneath while i float on repeat

why do i sound just like everyone else
i'd be best on my own, left alone on a shelf
with my hands' steady shake and my arms wide awake
i can sense in my bones that all time slips away
this foray of the way of the world settles in
i reach for your hand but i can't get a grip
on your palm, on my arm, on my spine and my grin
silhouettes still can fall when the light settles in
