Best Of You 03:00
I come down fast I'm on my knees Scratches to prove that I am fair I wouldn't say I'm on your side Stashes of faith oversupplied You missed my body bleeding fine You always knew what to avoid You'll never make it just in time I know you never even tried You always get the best of me I never see the best of you
3.
Smooth 02:35
The sun comes up on the side of your leg Everything it touches glistening I've been around quite a while now but Before this I have never felt a thing My memories regressed, the problem addressed My brain can't handle all my sins of youth I've witnessed wonders the world over My aching bones have never felt so smooth

Human 05:13
Faces with layers of skin Limbs that have a place to begin Reflexes with a place and a time And words that I'm not sure are still mine Feel around in the dark, beauty tied to be stark This time there is no fight, I'm human and humans need light I see people expand and relax in the ways they belong Completely confident knowing their will will hold strong Not getting behind and not living inside the wall Not falling forward at anything happening small They have faces with layers of skin Limbs that have a place to begin Reflexes with a place and a time And I'm aching, oh I'm falling behind Feel around in the dark, beauty tied to be stark This time there is no fight, I'm human and nothing seems right
6.
Mean 03:29
This is farther than out of place, this is closer to hell With the things being taken, wish I'd lost sense of smell This is cleaner than surgery, this is cut to the core Does this mean you won't follow my tracks anymore? Does this mean that you're leaving? Are you saved or am I? Saved from having to suffer or saved from having to try? Is this what has to happen? Its so hard to be sure Does this mean you won't follow my tracks anymore?
7.
Out of all the things surrounding me that matter Tape decks papers notebooks business better Press eject open pages never things that make it seem like I've Got my shit together And I know I'm still unsure of where I am going Everything in the house is stale or moldy You can tell that nobody's eaten here in weeks As the norm my first insight is selfish But the house still lives and still needs to survive But here I sit in a car that isn't' mine Window down at least a peaceful drive And I wonder how it will take to get to where I am going Lights on heater up in the woods and its snowing How long does it take until everything is Green And Growing And I wonder how long it will take to get to where I am going I'm sitting alone in the living room late at night And the only thing I see is little specks of light Floating into the world from the outside Where the sky is dark and the wind the wind is still blowing And I wonder how long it will take to get to where I am going

about

This album has undergone many large transformations in its lifetime. I started writing these songs when I moved to college, and finished them 4 years later when I came home.
I strived both to push myself and limit myself on this release. All recording was done straight into my macbook or with the help of an sm58 microphone, making a sort of lo-fi feel without being a challenging listen. I played all the instruments, did all of the artwork, and all of the recording, mixing, and mastering myself, in order to have another album that I can truly call a 'solo album'.
These songs come from a very dark place in my life, while I was dealing with mental illness and difficult life situations. Songs about loss, painful memories, and growing from them. I hope you like them.
