Grayscale Atlantic

My eyes are tired, blood pumped with caffeine

This place feels more and more like nowhere to me

I’m sick of waiting for a fire to ignite

I could just leave here without a goodbye

I’ll burn down this bridge

And set my life up in smoke

You used to be mine

My world used to shine like gold

I want to go

I want to go

Run from this panic

I need the unknown

I’ve had enough

I’ve had enough

Run to Atlantic

Away from this home

Was never strong without you here

Would lightning bugs make you reappear?

Through the fog the buildings push through the clouds

I know there’s more than what is holding me down

I’ll burn down this bridge

And set my life up in smoke

You used to be mine

My world used to shine like gold

I want to go

I want to go

Run from this panic

I need the unknown

I’ve had enough

I’ve had enough

Run to Atlantic

Away from this home

Oh I see what’s in front of me, in front of me

Oh I see what’s in front of me, in front of me

I’ll burn down this bridge

And set my life up in smoke

You used to be mine

My world used to shine like gold, gold

I want to go

I want to go

Run from this panic

I need the unknown

I’ve had enough

I’ve had enough

Run to Atlantic

Away from this home

Run from this panic

I need the unknown

Run to Atlantic

Away from this home

Grayscale Dying Breed

You said you wanna sit down and talk

I remember it on a bleak December Kennett walk

Where I said lately I haven’t been myself at all

Like Jesse said, I’m a dying breed

It’s past the point of trying for me

And did you notice when I was crying of the

Front step of your parent’s porch?

And now I know you’re the reason I wish

Heart attacks and car crashes on people

And for the second time tonight

I’m fully prepared to lose a piece of myself with Miller

It’s like we’re the only kids with self respect

No matter what John or his shit eating dad says

They’re racist

Like Jesse said, I’m a dying breed

It’s past the point of trying for me

And did you notice when I was crying of the

Front step of your parent’s porch?

And now I know you’re the reason I wish

Heart attacks and car crashes on people

Spoken by reply so aptly broken

Where for years I had to choke in

All my hatred for you now you got what you deserved

Like Jesse said, I’m a dying breed

(On my own, and I can hear you breathing)

It’s past the point of trying for me

(Begging me for a second chance at clarity so)

And did you notice when I was crying of the

Front step of your parent’s porch?

(Now you know where you went wrong)

And now I know you’re the reason I wish

Heart attacks and car crashes on people

(And why you’ve grown dead to me, and it’ll stay that way for long)

Grayscale Colors

If you really wanna see me cut myself wide open

As a constant reminder of where I came from

As I pass your house on Longwood Road

I’ll think about

All the times I would have driven you home

When you were too fucked up

Now you’re just a sight that I can

Visit when I’m home

Visit when I’m home

I know it’s wrong that I hated you for it

But try and understand that I was young and innocent

Now you know how fucked up I really am

Maybe it’d be different if I had a second chance

Or if I could still grab your reaching hand

I know a better road

And if I had to do this all again

I’d take the same way home

I know it’s wrong that I hated you for it

But try and understand that I was young and innocent

Cause your colors are always changing

It’s obvious that you never cared at all

And all I have are these bitter goddamn songs

We’re too far for letting this go

Are true words that I live by

And it’s why I spend my holidays alone

Your colors are always changing

You’re always changing

Cause your colors are always changing

It’s obvious you never cared at all

And all I have are these bitter goddamn songs

We’re too far for letting this go

Are true words that I live by

I think it’s safe to say that I’m the one alone

Grayscale If I Ever See You Again

Placed a stone on the pedal and jumped

With me bound in the backseat

Barely standing but I better run

We were high, now we’re crashing

I’m an optimist, or whatever you want

Put me back in a labyrinth

I’m a masochist, or your usual haunt

Bring the pain, I don’t mind it

Bring the pain, I don’t mind it

If I ever see you again, I’d ask for my time back

And if I ever see you again, I’d want you to know that

I was alone adrift, now I can’t be more over it

If I ever see you again, I’d ask for my time back

Used to joke in an old Irish brogue

Now it’s played out and faded

In the middle of Rittenhouse broke

Burnt orange and jaded

I’m a pessimist, never be what you want

Lost again in a labyrinth

I’m a masochist, or your usual haunt

Bring the pain, I don’t mind it

Bring the pain, I don’t mind it

If I ever see you again, I’d ask for my time back

And if I ever see you again, I’d want you to know that

I was alone adrift, now I can’t be more over it

If I ever see you again, I’d ask for my time back

I’ll never let anyone in

Guilt stringing me along

You left me to bargaining

It’s all you wanted

If I ever see you again, I’d ask for my time back

And if I ever see you again, I’d want you to know that

If I ever see you again, I’d ask for my time back

And if I ever see you again, I’d want you to know that

I was alone adrift, now I can’t be more over it

If I ever see you again, I’d ask for my time back

I’d ask for my time back

Grayscale Sunday

Turn off the lights and tell me everything that’s on your mind

Or how we both know you’ve been off since last July

Your eyes are swollen from feeling so alone

It’s inside, I swear that I’m not going home

Two days now broken down in your bedroom

I’ll hold you tight while you cry hard into my arms

It’s funny how everyone says we’re too young

Except my best friends, they’re the only ones that are on my side

Don’t tell me it won’t be the same

I guess I’ll hope for the best

And tell myself I’ll be okay

I hope it was worth it for you

Don’t even tell her that you’re sorry

Cause I make breakfast from here on out can’t fix

Through the years I’ve loved you

So here’s a thank you

From me from the lesson of growing older

And how I actually

This was the man at you at seventeen

Don’t tell me it won’t be the same

I guess I’ll hope for the best

And tell myself I’ll make it and be okay

You know you mean so much to me

Don’t tell me it won’t be the same

I guess I’ll hope for the best

And tell myself I’ll make it and be okay

You know you mean so much to me

You know you mean so much to me

Grayscale Palette

It’s not so hard to forget

When your mind’s as wicked as it is

I was sucked in, I believed you then

As much as I hate to admit

I could feel it seeping out of your wicked, olive skin

I’m still listening to our Menzingers record

Except song five off of it

I hope he misses you

And listens just like I do

You know it’s no good for you

You know he’s no good for you

And I’m trying to let this go

You’re shaking and it shows

You know it’s no good for you

You know he’s no good for you

And darling, tell me where did your heart go?

Cause I sure as hell don’t know, know where your head’s at anymore

Do you know what it feels like?

Being stuck between two colors on a palette you’re not happy with

You’re afraid to mix, so you keep them apart

I hope he misses you

And listens just like I do

You know it’s no good for you

You know he’s no good for you

And I’m trying to let this go

You’re shaking and it shows

You know it’s no good for you

You know he’s no good for you

No good for you

No good for you

No good for you

And yeah I’m worked up

You are the sunlight blinding my face

The storm that’s blocking my way

I need you out of my veins

I need you out of my veins

I hope he misses you

And listens just like I do

You know it’s no good for you

You know he’s no good for you

And I’m trying to let this go

You’re shaking and it shows

You know it’s no good for you

You know he’s no good for you

Grayscale Forever Yours

Stained glass patterns porcelain

Your watercolors running

All your paintings are fading from the walls

Miss, I miss the way you breathe

The way you twitch in your sleep

Your smile, your straight teeth

And the scars along on your cheeks

I should have wrote that letter

You looked beautiful in white but I stayed home

Could never live without you

But I guess I’ll have to

You’re gone, gone, gone

All the promises, vows under the covers

We would play pretend my love but it was real to me

Now I waste my days away, I know I can’t recover

There’s no love lost, but I’ll be forever yours

Walk the grove we’d always go

Where the summer made our shadows tall

I look out for them, but now there’s only one

Run my hands through winter grass

Pretend I feel your warmth again

But the grass is cold and dead

My pain might never end

That cathedral hall and that ivy wall

Aisle I’ll never know

Could never live without you

But I guess I’ll have to

You’re gone, gone, gone

All the promises, vows under the covers

We would play pretend my love but it was real to me

Now I waste my days away, I know I can’t recover

There’s no love lost, but I’ll be forever yours

Forever yours, forever yours

No love lost, but I’ll be forever yours

Forever yours, forever yours

No love lost, but I’ll be forever yours

Place my bouquet of old regrets

Drop the weight of my sins

The ground takes in the better man I could have been

All the promises, vows under the covers

We would play pretend my love but it was real to me

Now I waste my days away, I know I can’t recover

There’s no love lost, but I’ll be forever yours

Forever yours, forever yours

No love lost, but I’ll be forever yours

Forever yours, forever yours

No love lost, but I’ll be forever yours

Grayscale Growing Pains

It takes everything for me to be okay

(Here in Pennsylvania)

Where it’s cloudy every fucking day

And there’s nothing here but La Peña Mexicana

Yo guys do you wanna

Use mini bikes till we’re kicked out of Walmart?

Or a dozen eggs on John’s shitty Honda?

I can’t do this on my own

It’s something you can’t understand

Cause lately I’ve been giving up on everything in my hands

We both know how strong you stand

But if you drop your guard for just a second

We’ll find a common ground to work this out

Let go of everything and move on

And this is the first time in a while

That I’ve ever felt so alone

Stories of friends who let me down again

Make me wanna get up and go home

And I wouldn’t call it anything other than

Me being anxious as far as I can see

So drop your guard for me

I can’t do this on my own

It’s something you can’t understand

Cause lately I’ve been giving up on everything in my hands

We both know how strong you stand

But if you drop your guard for just a second

We’ll find a common ground to work this out

Let go of everything and move on

Let go of everything and move on

Let go of everything (let go of everything)

Let go of everything

Let go of everything (let go of everything)

Let go of everything

Let go of everything

Grayscale Midwest

Stay strong for me

At least that’s what I’ll tell her

Cause someone’s gotta be

If I could let you in my head

You could see what I’ve been painting

Cause it’s bittersweet

Letting go of the brush you’ve given me

I’ll hang it up for you

When we’re back in your midwest living room

A picture point of view while I waited for you

Waited for something to get me through

I lived these past two months now

Stumbling like a ghost

I miss you sleeping next to me naked

I’ll hang it up for you if we make it

White roses hold an angelic hue just like her’s

Like a kid in the Roaring Twenties

He’ll save up all week to buy her flowers

And I’ll hold it all back

But please just know that

So come back

Please just come back

I’ll bury what I know we’re missing

And the summer nights we could be living in

Grayscale Come Undone

Now I’m gone, gone and out of your life

Like a blood moon burning underneath the sun

Now I’m gone, out of sight and out of your mind

Like a wayward soul possessed speaking in tongues

You love to watch me come undone

Stood face to face with your ghost tonight

And I tried to apologize

As you crept in my mind

I crashed my car on black ice tonight

Barely made it out alive

I think you smashed my headlights

Don’t know why your winds keep blowing in my mind

Now I’m gone, gone and out of your life

Like a blood moon burning underneath the sun

Now I’m gone, out of sight and out of your mind

Like a wayward soul possessed speaking in tongues

You love to watch me come undone

You disappeared on me for quite some time

Violent and restless nights

I live my life at high tide

Hope I never have to see your face again

Should’ve never let you in in the first place

But I’ll mend

Don’t know why your winds keep blowing in my mind

Now I’m gone, gone and out of your life

Like a blood moon burning underneath the sun

Now I’m gone, out of sight and out of your mind

Like a wayward soul possessed speaking in tongues

You love to watch me come undone

I miss the way it was when you would smile big

I never listened, forever living at a distance

I wish I could cut myself out of my own skin

I never listened, forever living at a distance

And now I’m gone, gone and out of your life

Heartstrings tied in knots pinched my veins shut

Now I’m gone, gone and out of your life

Like a blood moon burning underneath the sun

Now I’m gone, out of sight and out of your mind

Like a wayward soul possessed speaking in tongues

You love to watch me come undone

You love to watch me come undone
