Track Name: There's No Way
I’m in a big hurry to get out of the city

I’m packing and silent and hectic

My neighbor said he was playing a show

And I told him I’d be in attendance

But I forgot and I slept a lot

And I need to remain undetected

Now I’m sitting in traffic, in a hurry

To see a girl from back home

Who I swear that I feel like I’ve known for a century



But she lives six hours away

And it’s been two weeks

And every day we speak

For an hour at least

There’s no way



My mind makes up these scenarios

And crams the future full like a storage unit

And when I get there it’s the same malaise

I’m eating and sleeping and pacing

And the cycle repeats and the fantasy seeps

Through the cracks and the strain in inertia

With a pit in my stomach, sitting in traffic

The spontaneous magician of the mundane



But she lives six hours away

And it’s been two weeks

And every day we speak

For an hour at least

There’s no way



There’s no way

There’s no way

There’s no way

There’s no way
Track Name: Stealing Is Healing
Warm air on my neck

Pairs awkwardly with

The jacket I sewed

In pockets to stow



Symbols of my soul

Adolescent glee

Linger by the door

Escape into the street



The scorn of living

I feel it giving

I glow



Like the part where the drums come in

Stretched and framed on an evening’s sin



When I was 16

I tried B and E

Most outside the law

That I’d ever gone



It was beautiful

Blazing through the night

Blasting “Refugee”

Windows open wide



The scorn of trying

I feel it dying

I go

To where I’m hiding

The pure defiance

I glow



Like the part where the drums come in

Stretched and framed

Like the part where you see sirens

In the opposite direction
