Track Name: Loser
can you do that again?
can you say what you said?
when you were holding my hand
before you let go of it

i know you're right
but i feel like
i'm losing

are you on the way home?
are you almost alone?
did you read what I sent?
did you let go of it?

i know you're right
but i'm losing
Track Name: Gone
the highway goes straight to the moon
she stays blushing
did i say too much too soon?
she becomes nothing
she can't change my mind
i am gone now
i am gone

my dream closes in on me
and i feel safer
the walls turn into waves
and i move past her

i can see now
the light at the top
a thousand doorways
that makes my heart stop
i save my breath
until i escape
my dream turns on me
so i leave this place

running out of time
i am gone now
she won't change my mind
i am gone
Track Name: Hot Air
hot air
comes through
you don't
i do
the sun
burns out
don't be
too loud

big plans
you can't
i can
a voice
seeps in
i'm on
to it

float across the floor
do you know what for?
the whole room is yours
the whole room is yours

hot air
comes through
you don't
i do
Track Name: Soft Stuff
maybe when we get there we can fill the place up
with whatever soft stuff is sparkling between us
maybe when we go home we will lose our voices
just talk with the blushes, they're louder than the noises

of every single jewel hitting the floor
how is it that you still ask for more?

everything gets louder with the windows open
hand over the powder, repeating motion

all the faces smear into a cloud
it's still true i want you to be proud
Track Name: A Curse
you spill all the wine on my bed
but you won’t remember that
you say you’ll love me when you are dead
but you don’t remember that

i wish you gave me some sort of clue
before you drove into the sun
you stand alone in your old room
you think about the things that you’ve done

you wash your hands in my sink
you clean your skin of what is me
you say you don’t know what to think
but i know you curse me til you leave

i make a joke i hope that it sticks
when you are in a whole 'nother state
i want you to remember it
i want it to show on your face
