Track Name: In The Interest of Closing Doors
In the contents of certain rooms, or in the company I’ve kept
Hidden currents conspire with the light to accentuate my missteps
And there are too many of them, and I’ll lose touch one by one
I’m just not entirely sure I was intended for human connection
And there is something to be said for this reclusive life I’ve found
But in all this empty space I didn't realize I could still drown

What a waste of all that space and design
I just haven’t felt like myself for some time
It goes to show how easy it is
To never really understand what makes you the happiest

In the interest of closing doors to the most crowded, yet, empty rooms
Or in case the silence didn’t come across as obviously as intended to
I hated how I turned out to be, so I said what I needed to my teeth
And washed the bad taste out with coffee, dirt roads and far too much weed
Track Name: Worth & Use
In between the long periods of time
When the days dug us into holes that I swore we despised
Occasionally I was able to forget certain truths
About worth and use
About what’s already built
Into blood and bone
About all the ways
Living has made you fold
In half at the spine
When, really it shouldn’t after all this time
I spent standing in one place,
But it’s hard to move and still stand up straight
I thought by now,
I’d feel less full of shit
I guess I should use adult terms
Like inadequate

Discontent,
I need a new distraction
To feel worth something again
Disconnect
I need a new direction
To feel this good again

Up until this current point in time
Life had been laid out with meticulous design
Is this really where I was always waiting to arrive?
Now I kind of resent hindsight
For always pointing out
The smallest little cracks
In things that have otherwise shown
No sign of collapse

No going back
My patience is tired and far behind
It felt too much like a waste time

Discontent
I need a new distraction
To feel worth something again
Disconnect
I need a new direction
To feel this good again

Up until this current point in time, I could’ve sworn that I felt fine
