Track Name: Armslength - Never Meant
I lost an ardent hunger for an honest name.
Caught searching misadventure with a stubborn frame.
(Still I try) To sow every mistake so I can harvest all the shame.
So I left downtown to suffer and sink alone.
Claiming the heart of a martyr with a head of stone.
(The cold it burned much stronger than the year before)
And hardened the kid at the core.

But I find, that history pauses and waits for my breathing to slowly return from its obvious heaving.
My memory mirrors a world in a transient glare.

Wait, I never meant to stay.
I'm counting the days.
I never meant to say.
I'm counting down the days.

In my life, 'til memory mirrors a world in a violent light.
But history pauses and waits for my breathing to slowly return from its obvious heaving.
My memory mirrors a world in a transient glare.

I never lied.
I never said I did.
A fitting time.
To bleed from inside.
Track Name: Armslength - In Passing
Strengthen your grip under my skin.
I can't say I never wanted this.
Please open your eyes dear, you're distant.
Just once more before your body rests.

Over the tree line
(A birds eye view, a suicide)
I'm not sure how we ended up ahead of the weather, but lost in the light.
This dream within, you're paralyzed.

The landscape, it stretched, as I chewed on my fingertips.
Flares over lakes where the distance fell in sheets of rain.
I'll admit that I could see myself, but only in delays.
Take a trip as far north as the ground permits.
The cost of escape is my sense has gone dead .

Over the tree line
(A birds eye view, a suicide)
I'm not sure how we ended up ahead of the weather, but lost in the light.
This dream within, you're paralyzed.

The last thing you said to me was "don't be so selfish."
I can't say I never asked for this.
(I know I lied when I said it'd be alright, but I was scared and you were broken. The glass cut your skin like you once tried. But you were scared, and now you're broken.)
Track Name: Ghost Stories - Dizzy
Here's to hoping for the best, an ode to a second chance. I've been on the fence of putting my past to rest. It's all taking a toll and it shows in my demeanor lack of self control.

Will I learn from my mistakes, let them haunt me every day. Let them haunt me in the core of me from yesterday. These things take time. But I've already lost a quarter of my life.

I'm just not as excited as I used to be. I'm losing track of everything. I miss the water and the way it feels when I'm underneath it.

I tried but I still don't feel like it's going anywhere. Thin skin. I'm sleeping in for ten more minutes.

I'm just not as excited as I used to be. I'm losing track of everything. I miss the water and the way it feels.
Track Name: Ghost Stories - Physical Bodies
We slept till your feet kicked away the covers and now we have nothing to hide under. You said you're sorry and that you know how confusing you can be.

If it's meant to be it will happen.Time will see and have it mended. In a dream we're together again. Hit me when I least expected.

I wish I knew all the secrets behind promises and how to make and keep them.

Soft light from the windows. Off white sheets and the pillows.


I called you to say that I miss you, forgot my backpack in your bedroom

(Locking eyes across the room
meeting someone new too soon
locking eyes across the room
falling in love too soon
falling in love too soon
falling in love too soon
locking eyes across the room)

I don't consider this to be of any importance at all. But your weight is still on my shoulders. At least for today.
