Compression 03:42
At first I was fine no trouble spending my time watchin' movies, drinkin' smoothies doing yoga online I always said in my mind that I was wasting my time bills and cable, waiting tables til I'm dead inside Now that I'm home I can't stay off of my phone checking in with every friend that can't stand being alone Yeah I'm doing okay plenty of art to make got my wish but it seems sick to have it happen this way Hail hope! Heal me! How can I steady my breathing? Hail for help! Hear Me! Over stressing and compression are getting to me No I don't have a fever or a reason to leave here I cancel plans to wash my hands so no one else can come breathe here Now I'm scrubbing the floors wiping down every door I wanna hide and stay inside until I can't take no more Hail hope! Heal me! How can I steady my breathing? Hail for help! Hear Me! Over stressing and compression are getting to me

So Alone 03:20
I wanna beat myself up too yeah I do, yeah I do but think of everyone else around you they love you They don't get how you hate you like you do, like you do 'Cuz they keep thinking the same things about themselves too How do you feel? So Alone? Some days are darker than others and you don't wanna bother that's why we all have eachother to see good in another It's okay to take days a step at a time Soon the sadness will fade it'll fade, into sunshine How do you feel? No need to feel. So Alone If your world takes a turn you stand up and survive Don't let fear steer you clear of just feeling alive You're not a rank You're not a place You're not a number Or a grade Cynicism is just a fad you are good this will pass

You say I'm lazy, you say I don't fit Takes one to know one You make me sick You say I'm simple You say I'm a hick You're fucking no one, you stupid dick Oppression won't win The light comes from within I need a sense of calm I wanna smell the flowers You need complete control You wanna build more towers You try to change me if you could I see the trees, you saw the wood You say I'm different You say we don't click I say you're crazy I say you're greedy because you scheme You say I'm foolish because I dream Oppression won't win The Light Comes from within I need a sense of calm I wanna smell the flowers You need complete control You wanna build more towers I say you're greedy because you scheme You say I'm foolish because I dream Oppression won't win The Light comes from within

I got a handful of this what do I do with it I got a barrel of this what do I do with it I do it clean Do it clean Ya know what I mean Where am I going? Where have aI been? Where are you going? Where have you been? I've been here I've been there Here there everywhere Here there nowhere itsy-bitsy-witzy-itzy everywhere I've been here and I've been there I'm clean
