Track Name: Documented Minor Emotional Breakdowns #3 & #4 (Respectively, Respectfully)
So last year, my birthday
You said that you'd be there
You promised with pinkies and hearts that were crossed
With the honour of boy scouts, You swore on your presence
You swore on your presents
I typed out the message but I couldn't hit send
My heart wasn't in it
Well, my heart it was in it but my brain told me "no"
It screamed, it hollered, it personified itself
But if I told you that, you'd say "Just get back to work"

I am stalking you at night
I want to know how to improve myself
I want to make this work
I want to make this last
So it looks like I'll need some help

So this year, my birthday
'Cause you knew it's my birthday
'cause you called her on up
and you said "i need your help"
Yeah
"I need to know this
I need to show that your real friends are different, they care what you think"
So at midnight on snapchat I spilled all my secrets
Against a black backdrop, I spilled all my secrets
And now I regret it, 'cause this year is coming
It's coming up the stairs, and the walls are on fire
Yeah the walls are on fire, the walls are on fire, the walls are on fire
so there's just that one way out

I am stalking you at night
I want to know how to improve myself
I want to make this work
I want to make this last
So it looks like I'll need some help

It's not the feelings that get to me
It's the lack of meaning in your promises

I will follow you at night
I want to know how to be better at this
'Cause I am a flare fired off from the top of the mountain -
We are together in this.
And you hate that - Or I think that you hate that
'Cause you were a flare that burned out slowly
Please God, teach me how to last

And be quick with it

I am stalking you at night
Track Name: Watching 90s Cartoons In Your Basement
I want you to notice me
My love for you has gone unrequited
I want you to notice me
And pay your attention undivided

I want you to notice me
My love for you has gone unrequited
I want you to notice me
And pay your attention undivided

You've been my best friend
For years and years I do suppose
But I've kept this secret from you
Oh so poorly it's surprising that you don't know
That I'm in love with you
And I can't fucking stand how you look with him in your arms
That should be me
I'm stuck in imagining just how happy I could be
That should be me
And you know that it could be if you opened up your fucking eyes

I saw you kiss him at that party
I felt my heart snap in two
I felt so crushed, I cried
I didn't know what to do

I want you to notice me
My love for you has gone unrequited
I want you to notice me
And pay your attention undivided

You've been my best friend
But I feel like something soon may change
We've just grown so far apart
Continental Drift affects people too
That should be him
I wish his mom ran over his dog again
I wish his dad had walked out sooner
I wish he tried to kill himself, and it worked

I saw you kiss him underneath the Broadway Bridge
I wanted to drive my car into a ditch
And watch it catch on fire

I want you to notice me
My love for you has gone unrequited
I want you to notice me
And pay your attention undivided

You'll change my world
500 Days Of Summer
Eternal Sunshine Of The Spotless Mind

You'll listen to records that you bought off broadway.
And Subsidize your living being a barista and a new-wave artist.
With Low-top sneakers on, you catch the bus and go to school,
the school, where you study graphic design and try your hardest.
The Mountain Goats tattoo on your wrist,
I'll hear wedding bells when we kiss.
Sporting old hand-me-downs and sweaters that were meant for Christmas.
You'll Introduce yourself so sweet.
I'd kiss the ground beneath your feet.

Cute Hipster Girls
You'll change my world
500 Days Of Summer
Eternal Sunshine Of The Spotless Mind

Your favourite movies, I've never heard of.
Believe in love and how it hurts us.
But you're not jaded, you believe that happiness will find us.
It's found me once or twice before, and all I need is one chance more.
One more person to feel safe with, and hope I don't destroy it.
'Cause I'm the cause of all my pain.
Unclean breakups and I'm to blame.
My self-worth is a fucking joke, but there's no punchline, there's just me dying.
I live my life through vivd fantasies, and hope that one day, someone will love me.
Maybe one day, I'll deserve it

Track Name: Getting Mauled By A Bear Would Be A Relatively Painless Way To die
I just can't take this any longer
I am off then I'm on then I'm off then I'm on
you are right then you are wrong then you are right then you are wrong then you're
holding yourself back
you say
I have one hell of a mind but I can't seem to keep all my shit on track
I'm holding myself back
on the good days I can keep from destroying everything around me
and everyone around me
they say

man you look normal
you don't look so good
I think you need help
what the fuck is your problem

I'm tired
I'm tired
but I just can't sleep
I'm hungry
I'm hungry
but I just won't eat
and I'm
so sorry for what I just said
I've got these thoughts I can't keep out of my head

and I would be lying
if I told you that I never had the thought
to throw all my meds away
or take them all at once
and make the best of the worst situation
This is the worst situation
and everyone they tell me

man you look normal
you don't look so good
I think you need help
what the fuck is your problem

I'm tired
I'm tired
but I just can't sleep
I'm hungry
I'm hungry
but I just won't eat
and I'm
so sorry for what I just said
I've got these thoughts I can't keep out of my head
