Track Name: Juneau
I washed the sick sweat out of my sheets
and kept brushing hard at my teeth.
I held on for the coming week.
Hoped it’d fade into normal.

It’s metacognition, endlessly.
Finding sober comfort in the bed of kings.
But I’m no royal. You’re no royal, too.

Things will be better soon
At least I’ll pretend that’s true.
Things will be better soon if I don’t think of you.

We had cabin fever deliriums.
Whiskey-shaking laughs with coked-up friends.
We lost control of the weekend before it ever started.
I fear it will take me years and years
to fit into the comfort of a routine feel.
A prayer to accept the sunlight when I awake.

Because my eyes won’t open wide,
but they’re looking in the right direction this time.

Things will be better soon
At least I’ll pretend that’s true.
Things will be better soon if I don’t think of you.

I want the sleep of the innocent.
Track Name: Bedroom
Still exhausted from the work,
from last night at yours.
Shaped excuses to stay indoors,
avoid old friends and the first floor.
Be it sorrow or flowers or underpaid hours,
but talking’s become a chore.
I used to wish for a wife or at least just one night,
but I doubt I want either anymore.

I’ll just stay closed in, tuned out for now.
I’ll just pretend I’m out.

Me and these ghosts still talking
until I’m finally sleeping.
I just want to stay home,
stay in my bedroom alone.
I just want to be whole.

Only to wake up still stuck in this role.

And I’ll repeat the cycle and feign denial,
but know the truth:
That a shitty year and a head full of fear
don’t add up to form an excuse.
But the itch still exists and it’s easier
to scratch than pay the dues.
(Easier) to collapse and retreat in utter defeat
in the safety of the room.

I just want to be whole.
Track Name: Hometown
Always remember how you felt
at this moment in this place:
Alone and inconsolable
in the house that you grew up in.
Always remember how you felt.

You stood in the yard with the dog when it hit you.
Strung out. Catharsis with the shakes.
How you were born with a right to complain
about your very own mistakes.

How you never second-guessed
this space to rest or forgiveness.
Sang loud those sad bastard songs,
spiteful in their intent.

Always remember how you felt
at this moment in this place:
Alone and inconsolable
in the house that you grew up in.
Always remember how you felt.

You wanted to just burn that fucker down,
erase twenty years on solid ground
that you’d squandered and rendered fruitless.
Made a mess of the order in it.
You wanted to deafen every sound
that came from your mouth in your hometown.
Start anew with convictions.
Build resolve out of the ashes.

Always remember how you felt.
