Track Name: When I Was Young
when i was young
i was so young
i didn't know how i would become a man
i didn't know how
how you would love me
or if you would love me as much as you did
when i was tired i didn't know why
i couldn't think like the ones that i wanted to be

i would always be the last resort
i would never be the one you want
i was crushed by what you said when i was young

if you had known would you have left me
would you have gone through
all those disappointments
i bring through my hands all of this long lost
under the front porch
the place where you hide
i sweep to the side
the calls and the chatter
you know how you mattered more than anything

i would always be the last resort
i would never be the one you want
i was crushed by what you said when i was young
Track Name: From Anyways
how can i uninform you if i don't call you?
haunted down the stream past your brother's room
your brother's room

i was the lawn
and you were the chair
and he picked it up and threw into the air

and lately this room's been growing smaller
and lately this wood's rotted faster
faster

and the sun signaled day
and the moon signaled night
we obeyed every law
and we lived side by side

and damn it i wish i thought faster
oh oh oh oh oh oh

and from sedatives
and from anyways
and from my collection of stamped memories

and from sedatives
and from anyways
and from my collection of stamped memories
and from evidence
and from seven days
and from medicine
and from anyways
