Track Name: "Good Mental Health, Seattle"
still bragging about leaving
still no one knows
the damage you did
before you'd hit the road

for years I sat there
tape across my mouth
listened to the stories
tried not to break down

had to walk out of
so many rooms where
you made sure I'd
hear you from every corner

all I wanted, was a way out
all I wanted, was a way out

when you ran from consequence
swore it'd be the end
until you returned
to start the cycle again
Track Name: 7000 Miles/24 States
there was no coherent sound
in disbelief you'd go beyond
boundaries you knew couldn't be crossed
a perfect escape made for one

always etched with the mark
of the capital "O"
borders reinforced
by your selfish actions

existing for a shot to live
swept under a rug for safe keep
there's nothing wrong if you can't see it
no accountability if you count the distance

always etched with the mark
of the capital "O"
borders reinforced
by your selfish actions
Track Name: Open Case
through desserts and different bodies of water
carrying the weight of an unforeseen future
funny how they claim it's all part of some scheme
and with one single glance, go from human to thief

barriers built to keep out the fear
instead they reaffirm facts that aren't real
ne uno mas, ne uno olvidado
gotta stand for the voices unheard

it’s just what they want, doubt overflowing
rivers of hate eroding progress made
but if histories proven anything
it's that out of pain will come change

barriers built to keep out the fear
instead they reaffirm facts that aren't real
ne uno mas, ne uno olvidado
gotta stand for the voices unheard
Track Name: Searching
can’t be complacent
can’t ignore the facts
now more than ever
gotta fight back

in search of
greater wisdom
to rebuild
our foundations

can’t keep quiet
the silence reaffirms
that actions not seen
never occurred

in search of
greater wisdom
to rebuild
our foundations

recognize
it’s only the first step
fuck the politicians
it’s you who makes a difference
Track Name: Ogden Point
there's a sense of loss, there's a sense of pain
can't figure out which one holds more weight
smashed basement windows, my wrists in your hands
cuffs to make sure I couldn't get away

tell me what it's like
to disregard the years
trying not to drown
'cause I'm still spitting water

...out by the ocean, people all around
chairs thrown in the air, left without a sound
never thought I'd be that embarrassed or ashamed
over time you proved it to be routine

so tell me what it's like
to disregard the years
choking back the tears
'cause I'm still coughing it
out!

when I needed help, you took advantage
equated my worth to being in your bed
for years hated myself, felt disgusted at the thought
now I've grown stronger, didn't need you in the end

tell me what it's like
life without a spine
cause I'll never forget
how you broke mine
Track Name: 10.28
I am capable of dark, I am capable of light
it used to tear me two, now it's what sets us apart
I am capable of love despite the damage
freed myself, I am no longer captive

I am ready to give
I want to be better
I want a chance
for redemption

time and distance changed my perspective
forgave myself for the way it all turned out
my hands are not clean, but they're no longer weak
I reclaimed my mind, no longer forced to retreat

I am ready to give
I want to be better
I want a chance
for redemption
Track Name: Ya Better Get It Right!
feel your eyes
on my back
make me a target
to take aim at

the space between us ain’t
a fucking invitation
your opinions just
verbal intoxication

my names not baby
my names not sweetie
next time you run your mouth
i’ll run it right into the ground

my names not baby
my names not sweetie
next time you run your mouth
i’ll run it right into the ground
