Track Name: Covered
I guess I just made it the bottom of the sea
after you tossed me off your ship
Under waves of uncertainty
That flowed out from your drunken lips

Convinced that I wouldn’t
ever see the light of day

But when it comes down to it

You tangled me up and weighed me down like an anchor on a chain
You thought I drowned but I’m still there swimming in the back of your brain
You tried to cover up

So I hope the next ex you try to kill knows how to swim
You’ll try again. You’ll try harder…
But you still can’t get rid of them

‘Cause ghosts don’t disappear
You’ll never see the light of day

Cause when it comes down to it

You’ll get tangled up and you’ll get weighed down like an anchor on a chain
You thought I drowned but I’m still there swimming in the back of your brain
You’ll never cover me up

it’s oddly beautiful
at night
you might catch me swimming
not covered up
Track Name: Changed
I've never been let down so fast.
You took it away.
Before it was even in my grasp,
you took it away.

Did you forget that you were the one who asked?
Good riddance.
And how do you like living in my past? Oh...

Don't email me again or write your name in ballpoint pen
because I don't want to read your words.
Don't say my name again, whether out loud or in your head,
because I won't answer and you won't be heard.

It's been 24 hours since you changed your mind,
and 24 years I've been biding my time.
In 24 hours you did a 180,
and I can't stop thinking, oh, someday...maybe...

Did you forget that you were the one who asked?
Good riddance.
And how do you like living in my past? Oh...

Don't email me again or write your name in ballpoint pen
because I don't want to read your words.
Don't say my name again, whether out loud or in your head,
because I won't answer and you won't be heard.

Now it's time for the breakdown,
but you won't get me to break down.
I will not break down.
You lose.

Don't email me again or write your name in ballpoint pen
because I don't want to read your words.
Don't say my name again, whether out loud or in your head,
because I won't answer and you won't be heard.
Track Name: Caught
Eventually, you will catch up to me.
Everything I see and all that I believe
is conditioned by a hand that wears no ring.
We didn't agree to a wedding.

An invisible force binds me to you -
a tie I cannot sever I don't know what to do.
I'm conditioned by a hand that wears no ring.
I didn't agree to a wedding.

And just by being born I signed a lifelong contract
to accept the things out of my control even when my heart's attacked.
And I don't know if you know what I know,
but we're all in the same, oh, the same big fucking boat.
And I don't want to drown today,
but I understand that there are a hell of a lot of waves.
(And you're the ocean.)
And there's nothing that I can do.
(You are the sea.)
I can't swim away from you.

You pull me under.
(You asked for my hand, and I said I would think about it.)
And I love it.
(You asked for my hand. You dragged me, pulled me. Now I'm drowning.)
You pull me under.
(You asked for my hand, and I didn't know that I could fight it.)
And I love it.
(You asked for my hand. I said I would think about it!)

Because you said you're looking for the big one -
the big love.
So can we skip a few steps?
Are you still learning how to run?

Because you said you're looking for the big one -
the big love.
So can we skip a few steps
or are you still learning how to run?

You said you're looking for the big one!
Can we skip a few steps?
Are you still learning how to run?

And eventually you will catch up to me,
but you won't be all that I see nor all I believe
because I am not naive.
