Track Name: Sleep
We could sleep away the day
There's nothing much to do around here anyways
In grey and cloudy Maxatawny
Trucks rumbled by, and your hand rests in mine

You talk to me in my sleep
I only sleep in the morning
You try and keep me awake
When you're asleep it's so boring

You talk to me in my sleep
I only sleep in the morning
You try and keep me awake
When you're asleep it's so

Now it's summer where we're living
We left the cold in search of new beginnings
But your demons don't mind weather
Together, we'll do better

These are the long nights
You only get once
Wrapped up in blankets
We race the sunrise

You talk to me in my sleep
I only sleep in the morning
You try and keep me awake
When you're asleep it's so boring

You talk to me in my sleep
I only sleep in the morning
You try and keep me awake
When you're asleep it's so
Track Name: Act Your Age
You're not too dignified to throw it in my face
I'm not the spokesperson for anyone who's ever been replaced

Of course we talked about it
It always comes up
Another selfish story
Drinks were spilled,

You said, “Act your age”

You're just too focused on the outcome
It's not a problem in the long run
Of course we talked about it
It always comes out
I got a bit dramatic
You threw your phone

You said, “Act your age”

You can’t just show up
Tell me that you think you've grown up
Tear away the words you dress up
The meaning is the same

You said, “Act your age”
Track Name: Nervous Wreck
You were chemically calm

I was chemically imbalanced

We were dosed in small amounts

But you were far too cool to stand for it

I'm a nervous wreck

When I don't know

I'm a pair of arms

They're outstretched reaching for you

I'm a nervous wreck

When I don't know

I'm a heavy frown

Exhausted, dragging you down

We could build a better path

Right next to the old one

But I was never good at math

So I yell and curse at everyone

I'm a nervous wreck

When I don't know

I'm a pair of arms

They're outstretched reaching for you
I'm a nervous wreck

When I don't know

I'm a heavy frown

Exhausted, dragging you down
Track Name: Swimming
It's the same
Swimming in circles again
It's my brain
I need to spend time with my friends

It's the way that I know I'm loved
Got my towel packed
Floating for hours
The sun on my face

In the rain
The sun is still hanging around
It's just me
And the pessimists dragging me down

In my brain
Searching for clarity now
Thank my friends
For pulling me out

It's the way that I clear my head
Throw your pills away
Seasonal depression, it’s over, it's dead!

Sun soaked rays
You have come to save
Us from cloudy depressing days
Sun soaked rays
Burn the clouds away

With a drink in our hands
And our bodies on the beach

We're swimmin'
We're swimmin'
Track Name: Slow
I'm sorry I said that
I didn't mean it I guess I lost control
You shouldn't get so mad
I wish you wouldn't hang on to every word

Take it slow
Don't worry now
You're in control

You said you'd remember
To tell me everything you were hoping for
I promise to surrender
I’ll leave me my heart exposed
If that means you won't go

Take it slow
Don't worry now
You're in control

Can you please tell me
What did you mean when you said I
Unravel at the seams
Trying to focus on

Moving forward
Closing gaps
It's all I think about

Can you please tell me
What did you mean when you said I
Unravel at the seams
Trying to focus on

One step forward
Two steps back
It's all I think about
