Track Name: The Kidney and the Stone
I've felt like I can't breathe until I move out
It turns out I was more right than I could ever hope to be
Cause I don't get those feelings anymore
The ones that make me cry and the ones where I feel joy

Every couple years I lose a lung
But I've learned that it's ok, I don't need it anyway
With the right mindset everything's a treat
But I treat my lung just like a kidney and my heart just like a stone

But that's no way to treat a stone...
Track Name: Future Moms
There's a whole world inside of everyone
A future dad, a future mom
And I just keep repeating, repeating in my head
Don't look at that spaghetti stain on my jeans

It's so easy to ignore the things that are so clear
Trapped in a world between my ears
But as I feel this moment I can see for years
We're changing now, we're changing here

This moment rests on the head of a pin
So small, yet so volatile it pierces my skin
College basement dancing, she's 20 years old
A mind so young you ask what could it hold?

But there's Heaven and Hell inside her
The future is a ride and a half
And we're not going back
To worrying about spaghetti and future moms

Red rover red rover it's already over
I'm taking attendance so raise your hands
The room is now shrinking to the size of a pea
A minuscule freeze frame of infinity

Time is so irrelevant
When I feel so insignificant
Like a song you've never heard before
That still tears at your heart
You've still got to play your part

Time is so irrelevant
When I feel so insignificant
But behind our eyes we all are gods
Like a song you've never heard before
That still tears at your heart
You've still got to play your part
It goes on and on...

This moment rests on the head of a pin
So small, yet so volatile it pierces my skin
College basement dancing, she's 20 years old
A mind so young you ask what could it hold?

But there's Heaven and Hell inside us
The future is a ride and a half
And we're not going back
To worrying about spaghetti and future moms
Track Name: Senseless Princess
I feel like a teenager who's woken up in the wrong shoes
Who's to say when the bed won't stay still
When it keeps spinning you
You never know which side you'll wake up on

Where do you turn, when the turning is thing you want to stop?
When each thought that is piled on top that pea that's buried underneath
That little piece of me, escapes my senses - outside my reach
Senseless princess won't explain to me the life I should lead
Senseless princess what good are you to me?

When nature met nurture I couldn't walk a step further
But when I threw both out the door the chaos had started
I knew what I wanted but for want of an icon
Could I step outside, alive as an archon?

I'd like to say my epiphanies are self-generated
But I can't deny the seasons have an effect on me
When the spring rolls in, my bones molten I start to glow and I swear
I've woken up from a dream I didn't know I was in
