Isabella Scott All of the songs are so good its almost offensive, but i miss being a tree might have to be my favorite. It's so hard for me to choose one thats superior though because god /damn/ they are all so meaningful, and im sure that this is one of those things where everyone applies the lyrics and the music to them but all in a different way, and honestly thats one of my favorite things about music in general, it can touch so many people simultaneously, good luck guys <3 Favorite track: I Miss Being A Tree.

Cassidy Reed Not only does Chris have a unique voice and emotion behind every lyric, but even the music itself makes me feel something. Definite new fan. The Afternoon of Extravagant Delight is flawless. Favorite track: Poppy Bitch.

Track Name: Poppy Bitch
now I got off work at 2 am
and I'm awake 2 hours later
turned on my old phone and read all the old texts
and I'm afraid they made me miss her
and it was cool when we skipped school
and my mom never knew
you were hiding in my room
I learned everything about sex with you it's true

I believed us when we swore we never would
but we did
we grew

Into different people
with different lives
who have different nights
with different girls and different guys
and I will try not to lie
because my mom says it brings her down
but the truth is I self sabotage
and all that I've got
are these songs that I love that other people wrote out

now I dropped you off at 3 a m
and my mouths a little bitter
you're scared you'll get hurt
well you're a talented liar
but we're not off Tess, we're just tired
and I wish my favorite band would last more than a week
I wish love wouldn't leave with the drinks in our bloodstream
or fade with the sun like the dreams we have while we sleep

Into different people
with different lives
who have different nights
with different girls and different guys
and I will try not to lie
because my mom says it brings her down
but the truth is I self sabotage
and all that I've got
are these songs that I love that other people wrote out

reciprocity
confidently believing in such balancing
the illusion is beautiful
but immensely misleading
you see I'm fleeting and fickle
like the shadows of dancing leaves
the sun and the wind
produce lies without meaning
so please be forgiving
they're no better than me
the law of balancing reads
if I'm falling you're leaving

Into different people
with different lives
who have different nights
with different girls and different guys
and I will try not to lie
because my mom says it brings her down
but the truth is I self sabotage
and all that I've got
are these songs that I love that other people wrote out
Track Name: Viddy Well, Brother
you are the sex that I see
amidst monsters and old homes
all threatened by a volcano
not awake but not quite asleep
in my bed dwarfed by a spec
swallowing the universe
living in my head

not yours but not quite my own
don't run away because I won't
but don't love me because I don't

flying like a sponge
I've soaked you up
well I'm home but not really home
I've let my mind corrupt
I'll distract with these stories that sleep thought up
so you won't notice that my eyes want nothing more than to touch
I'm not perfect by any means
and you know this so please just stop lying
I can't take it it just makes me bleed
I'm so infected I'm so

well you seem quite dishonest
but my ears can't feel
and it'd be silly to dwell on it
when your body is so real
Track Name: 13
here, we'll sit in the grass
over my head, the leaves dance
"are you sure?"
no, yeah I like this spot a lot
over my head, the leaves laugh
"it's just dirt"

I woke up feeling anxious
it's no reflection of you
I'm just confused, unsure, and nervous
I feel entirely removed

But I told them to leave
and they all listened, and went away from me
I like to watch myself burn
it's so much easier than letting myself learn
Cus I got hurt, so I'll burn you back
That's how I work,
I swear I never asked to be this way

Here, I'll watch the cars pass
while you claim my face
I heard, it's all about perspective
the timing, the place
a bruise on my neck now doesn't really mean a thing
I mean, my dad's just so tired and removed these days

I guess i't's funny really,
I shouldn't be sad about anything
I guess it's funny really,
I wished for this when I was thirteen

wish I was thirteen
Track Name: I Miss Being A Tree
The sun licked my face through the cracked blinds
I turned on, and layed, still, through my squinting eyes
Last night I got high, and went back to July
I'm eating your lips on your torn self-portrait
She's got eyes on the back of my bed
I'm self conscious and anxious as she watches me undress
I'm alone for the first time in ten months and wondering
Why would I set fire to my life again this time

I didn't care if I lost all my friends
I imagine myself dying when I drive through intersections
We put meaning into that little ball of lint

Fuck his name, fuck last night, fuck your face
I'm so tired of acting like it's all okay
My mom's got this friend, she's gonna die in a few days
Oh I'm lost, oh I'm lost, Oh I'm lost

I try to avoid taking broadway
or saying your name
You wake me up every morning
I went out last night and ran into the sun
She sang to me,
"I miss being a tree"

I spent almost a year crying onto your shoulder
& Now that I don't have you, I've been forced to get older
We hid our love inside that little ball of lint

Fuck his name, fuck last night, fuck your face
I'm so tired, I hate everyone and everything
Some days my mom's my only friend
I'm fucked when she leaves
Oh, please don't leave me

I'll always wish the summer would've never ended
but it did, and it burns my heart
Now I'm just trying to mend it and not fall apart
and Tess, you're really making it hard

And for some reason, I'm still holding on to that little ball of lint

Fuck his name, fuck last night, fuck your face
I'm so tired, I don't understand a single thing
Suzanne says she's surprised but she's not scared to die
Oh I'm lost, Oh I'm lost, where am I?
Oh I'm lost, Oh I'm lost, who am I?
Oh I'm lost, Oh I'm lost, Oh I'm fine
Track Name: Hole In My Head
I put a hole in my head
To let everything out
I bury things there
People dreams words and doubts
I believed it’d relieve
That the pressure’d seep out
It was quick with no words
I dreamt of people
Sans doubt
I’m working hard for a life that I don’t want
Learn some numbers this guitar is a waste
Everyone that I know is alone
Lucky me, I never wake up the same
And I’ve heard this song a million times before
But this is the first time that I’ve heard the words
I’m forgetting who I am amidst these awful thought
If the spinning never stops bury my,
My head in the dirt
Keep telling yourself it’ll be okay
Keep telling yourself that you’re gonna make it some day
Keep telling yourself it’ll be alright
Keep telling yourself that it was love we made tonight

I generally attempt to avoid being literal but
This pain is physical
A never ending list
Demands my life to give
I’m just afraid I will not wake before I live
I classify myself as a romantic
My mouth’s a loose cannon
Can’t can it
I think that I’m manic
My head is tangled with tangents of rampant thoughts of her hands down someone else and I panic
and now I’ve lost it all
