Track Name: Miles & Miles
I touched your lips with my fingertips
Oh baby, oh baby
I never use that word but it fits so well for you

If I hadn't left, would you have brought me to your bed?
Oh baby, oh baby
I often take things fast but with you, I'd make it last

But life is cruel and life is bleak
when there are miles and miles separating two kisses on the cheek
Life is so cruel, life is so bleak
when there are miles and miles separating you and me

You touched my hips with your fingertips
Oh baby, oh baby
Even when it rains, you never look away

And if I drop by again this year,
Oh baby, oh baby
Will you want me there?

But life is cruel and life is bleak
and it's so confusing how someone can mean this much to me
Life is so cruel, life is so bleak
I did not think I'd enter into some kind of fantasy

But life is cruel and life is bleak
when there are miles and miles separating two kisses on the cheek
Life is so cruel, life is so bleak
when there are miles and miles separating you and me
Track Name: Clean Cough
Clean cough and I'm still sick
What else could it be?
Lay low and I can't heal -
Apart from being real, apart from being real
With all I have concealed
But when it comes down to the pine,
I'm not the sharpest kind
Manipulative mind
And all that I can give:
The sweetness of my lips, the sweetness of a kiss

What are they gonna do when I'm dead?
Hold each other, laugh together,
Crawl inside and hurt forever
What am I gonna do when I'm dead?
Never give up but I never say never
Never say no cause you'll never get better

Clean cut and I'm still here
Where else would I be?
Faint, so I can breathe.
Track Name: More Than A Human
your hands are rough like sandpaper
or a human that fights too much to save the end of the world

you’re broken now, you don’t remember
how to touch, kiss, hold me in place
how to feed me love

he said, “don’t stop dreamin’, let love grow on”
you’ll make it home and you’ll finally find out
who you are inside every battle
your ego shatters,
you are one, you’re whole, you’re more than a human now

I’m shallow still, I like your face
but your heart is under lockdown
and your brain is a baby’s brain

do you still think we could be us?
though I’m moving miles away
and your baby’s on its way

you said, “don’t stop dreamin’, let love grow on”
you’ll make it home and you’ll finally find out
who you are inside every battle
your ego shatters,
you are one, you’re whole, you’re more than a human now

monsoon season is over soon
and I dodged New Zealand winter too
I still long for you every day
in the meantime, I’ll move away

no, “don’t stop dreamin’, let love grow on”
you’ll make it home and you’ll finally find out
who you are inside every battle
your ego shatters,
you are one, you’re whole, you’re more than a human now
you are one, you’re whole, you’re more than a human now
you are one, you’re whole, you’re more than a human now
Track Name: Your Time
Even though I swear you’re never there
I receive voicemails that you still care
Your resonance scoops my guts out
The things you say become bullets
And even though I can’t feel you
I can’t touch past my borders

Even though you choose to feed the past
Offspring can only offer so much
Forgive me, forgive me, for I have sinned
I kill you, I kill you off time and time again
Your tone of voice makes my ears bleed
The way you frown cuts me open
Even though I can’t see you
All I feel is broken

Cost of my heart does not exist
Buy me a house you don’t live in
Off the market - is my affection
Off the market - is your compassion
We go for lunch, I drink coffee
We’re in your car, ask me questions
And even though you don’t hear me
You don’t pretend that you listen
In the summer you made me
Heal your wounds before mine
And even though I still did it
At least you gave me your time
Track Name: Outsider
not really sure where this is going
just like a top, when does the spinning stop?
I am still around, and ripely so
waiting to be found
why am I still around?

not really sure about most things
but truth persists inside my being
look! my life's alive
but it means I leave
how does a soul survive when the mind's eye dies

outside, I smell flowers and the grass is so green
I don't understand why you don't wanna be out here with me

not really sure how I should leave
should I just pack my things, get on a plane
to where my heart decides
all I want is truth
living a rebel's life means I stay outside

outside their heads feels like the worst thing
but one day I'll fly when I grow my wings
and the sun will shine
and my heart will gleam
I will say goodbye
and I'm fucking free!

outside, I smell flowers and the grass is so green
I don't understand why you don't wanna be out here with me
outside, I dance under grandfather trees
I don't understand why you don't wanna be out here with me

there's no place like om
there's no place like om
there's no place like
om
Track Name: Butterfly In A Cage
light above, flood my heart
I have cried for your help
the breeze is warm but I'm inside
mystic asks, "where's your love?"

I'll be the dance. I'll be the song
a little birdy said, "you're never wrong"
I'll be the wind, I'll be a tree
I am heart, not the body

here am I, in my cage
butterfly, fly away
on your quest, find the key
but don't forget to fly back to me

today I met you for the very first time
although I've held your heart in my hands
you disappeared, all but your light
now you can see clear without eyesight

here am I, in my cage
butterfly, fly away
on your quest, find the key
but don't forget to come back for me

here am I, in the pit
butterfly, fly far from it
if you die on your quest
I will try my very best
Track Name: Relapse
The feeling goes away
The feeling goes away
I spent all my time on you
I spent all my time for you
But the feeling goes away
The feeling goes away
I got no more time for you
I got better things to do

Where have I been lately?
My mind is mud lately
My trust is too busy
I’m distracted
I can’t find love lately
I can’t create lately
My days are much less free
I’m distracted

You said “good luck, it’ll be a bit tough
Your ship’s in danger, your crew has left you”
Well fuck, it’ll be a bit rough
But I’m still sailing and I’m not ready to die
Just yet

The feeling goes away
The feeling goes away
I spend all my time on you
I spend all my time for you
The feeling goes away
Track Name: There's Nothing Wrong With That
Somedays I sit & study a flower
Somedays a tree feels like my father
& I'll walk alone, all-one
Complete, under the sun
& I'll cry until I feel joy again
I may cry until I smile again
There's nothing wrong with that
There's nothing wrong with that

There's nothing wrong with wanting better days to come & greet you
There's nothing wrong with hollering above, "Please, God, I need you!"
There's nothing wrong with taking a step back
Or sittin' on grandma's lap
There's nothing wrong with that
There's nothing wrong with that

Somedays I'll cancel plans to be alone
Somedays I need a friend to feel at home
& creation's in ma bones
Artistic blood that flows
& I'll write until I can't write anymore
I'll write until frustration freezes my soul
There's nothing wrong with that
There's nothing wrong with that


There's nothing wrong with wanting better days to come & greet you
There's nothing wrong with hollering above, "Please, God, I need you!"
There's nothing wrong with taking a step back
Or sittin' on grandma's lap
Or spillin' coffee on your dress
Or forgetting to clean up a mess
Or getting rejected when you ask out your crush
One day soon, you will be in luck
There's nothing wrong with that
There's nothing wrong with that
There's nothing wrong with that
Track Name: Stigma
Why would I sign a contract with a bruised lung?
The malady is not only killing me, it's healing me.
It makes no sense, don't try to make it sense.
And nobody's gonna get a reward or a life or a heart with a proud defence.
You love me if you love you and I love you.
I don't wanna feel shame, I don't wanna feel shame, I don't wanna feel shame no more.
Track Name: In Daylight, Dear
Are you awake?

I never sleep.

My window says

It’s time to rise.

In daylight, dear, daylight, daylight, dear

Will you take care?

Please don’t give me the wrong idea.

Give me your mouth, I’ll fill it with

Good words, make sure you use ‘em right.

In daylight, dear, daylight, daylight, dear

Will you take care?

Are you awake?

I never sleep.

My window says

It’s time to rise.
