Track Name: Green
i need some room to pull some stunts
to flatten everything
we'll be so covered, so embraced

i am a coffee cup, i am a tire, i am a wave
i am this thought and i am not myself
and that's okay

i see a crow across the way
i feel a fullness
feel entire moments always change

im getting closer to myself
but i withdraw the same
i am a stranger in a strangely intimate embrace

it's always better when you're around
it's always better when you're around
it's always better when you're around
it's always better when you're around
Track Name: River
you are a room
if you wanna settle down
ill be one too
ill dig a pool in the yard

but you'll move away
you keep a lake behind your eyes
now i am a room
and i am floating in the yard

i guess ill see you around
one day ill see you around
Track Name: Eddy
hurt makes sense
guess i'm old enough to start to know
the way the water moves
meets the eddy, learns to slow

am i breathing bad?
little sunfish bleeding through
do you see my hands?
the way they're shaking little shadows in the ferns
are you coming back?
probably different, think of all the flies they're floating on a river running through the night
are these moments acted out already?

and in those odd-ordered bones
you got a new body holed up in your heart

and in the rattle of things i've known
its all dust in the floodlights
i am river water
slipping through your arms

there's nothing wrong with where you're going
nothing wrong with what you do
i can be your comfort sometimes
you listen to me, i listen to you

a couple palm trees brace against the wind
a couple thrushes on a roof in michigan
talking back and forth

my mother calls me about a storm that she is watching
the sky's so green you coulda sworn it was a movie

i tell her mom i guess i'm hurting
i know you're hurting too
i wish that i had called and
i wish i knew

that i am not the center
got so much to figure out
she said just commit to moving
commit to living with your doubts
Track Name: Under
do you move through memories like you've been making space
for things unseen, undone so good they couldn't be replaced
but in erasure i have found myself so close to breaking
and now i think of things we missed while we were making space

the night before i left i came over and felt you fall asleep
heard the ocean rolling through your head, felt the tide in your knees

how many moments spent thinking of things we havent done
how many winters have i spent without the ones i love
sitting on eternal beaches i turn my head around
making space between my hands, your memories to come

the night before i left i came over and felt you fall sleep
heard the ocean rolling through your head, felt the tide in your knees
run my hand through waves of what we're not, taste the salt through my teeth
dig our heels in sand and think that love just dissolves into heat
Track Name: Desert
there's a theory i got cookin
about the way the body moves
geography as introspection
or a section of the truth

if every mountain is a person
and i am sitting in the car
where everything's a part of movement
we've been moving far apart

i'm thinking bout the way you hold your arms
every little landscape breaks my heart

i'm thinking bout the way you hold your arms
every little landscape breaks my heart
Track Name: Feeling
spend a lot of time thinking bout the feelings i've felt
can't recall whether i felt that in the first place

filled with grime, got a gortex heart. i am breathable.
if at all waterproof i sit in rain
Track Name: Storm
back in 95
mom and dad were screaming
and you were leaning
out the backdoor of your mind

you said you're reading signs!
you ask "what kind of dreaming
leads you down the rabbit holes
where rabbits die?"

so then we made a pact.
you taught me mathematics
and it was my job just to make you laugh
to tie some strings around our hands
yeah every little landscape breaks apart.

10 years later
at the holiday in breakfast
i started crying
oh man i was surprised

i called and said i'm sick
i said "this is it,
i inherited something
i can't deny"

you said "maybe you did
you gotta deal with it.
you will lean on me when you're losing sleep
i'll lean on you when i have those dreams
yeah every little landscape breaks apart"

breaks apart
breaks apart
breaks apart
breaks apart
breaks apart
breaks apart
breaks apart
breaks apart

and some things
they come together
yeah some things
don't always get so dark

yeah some things
they come together
is there a way to fix up the ground?

make it come together
make some things
never get so dark

yeah some things
they come together
is there a way to fix up the ground?

to the way it was?
to write eloise
in the dust?
to be everything
all at once?
to be everything
to everyone?

well i don't quite want
to make it work
in every doctor
there's an urge to hurt
in every glass of water
there's a speck of dirt
and in every cobweb
something lies inert

well i don't quite want
to make it work
i don't quite want
to make it work
i don't quite want
to make it work
i don't quite
to make it work

so here i am now
in this dirty shirt
im cooking dinner
in this dirty shirt
thinking is this existence
in this dirty shirt?
yeah is this existing?
i'm gonna make it work.
