Track Name: Excavation
Green lagoons and the prospect of seeing you
Has me drifting in and out of view
And you’ve become pretty transparent too
Green lagoons, changing patterns for so long
Did you assume I wasn’t catching on?
That stagnancy I thought meant I belong

What if we shifted toward compassion
Would we resurrect our lofty worn attraction?
Would we be having any fun?
This feels like some sick retribution
But I couldn’t stand for every institution
And her being the lucky one

Was I just capital
When you punctured my evening
The ink rushed out along the keys
It was deceiving
It feels like exhibition
But really it’s visibility
What does it matter if there’s evidence
When you shun responsibility?
Track Name: Medallion
I pressed you body into mine
We fused together for a little while
Had we drank too much
When you told me I was the only one?
These absolutes they don’t make sense anymore
Open one door you have to close another door
Without you nothing can make sense anymore

Cold metal pressed on my skin
A medallion
A reminder of where I’ve been
A medallion
But I don’t wanna lose my mind
Trying to play it cool
Using every worn out line
When we don't have the time
Your scent still on my skin
A medallion

Now can you feel these boundaries
Expanding and dissolving?
Not an object but a sentiment
A contradiction I’m still solving
I told you my fears late at night
Told you my dreams every morning
Now details fade as soon as I wake up
Six hours gone without a warning

Soft linen wrapped on my skin
A medallion
New places to settle in
A medallion
But I don’t wanna lose my mind
Trying to play it cool
Using every worn out line
When we don’t have the time
Your scent washed off my skin
A medallion
Track Name: Girl Divided
I’ll be with you in a minute
What’s your numbers so explicit
Have you some other way to spin it?
What’s my problem what’s my limit?
I’ll be with you in a minute
All your language is so explicit
You set an image out to mimic
I don’t feel anything but complicit

And I’m telling you what you’ve already seen
That we’re sharing all the same strategies
I’m a girl divided but it seems so mean
Losing an codependency

Girl you’ve got me so excited
Turning envy into chivalry
Always thought I was uninvited
Until you put me out my misery

Girl you’ve got me so excited
Turning envy into chivalry
Always thought I was uninvited
Until you put me out my misery

I feel so wrapped in superstition
But you don’t need any permission
You require static decisions
I’m outside of your line of vision
How do you recognize complacency?
It seems everything I used to be
How do you categorize consistency?
Well that only depends on you and me

And I’m telling you what you’ve already seen
That we’re sharing all the same strategies
I’m a girl divided but it seems so mean
Losing an codependency

Girl you’ve got me so excited
Turning envy into chivalry
Always thought I was uninvited
Until you put me out my misery

Girl you’ve got me so excited
Turning envy into chivalry
Always thought I was uninvited
Until you put me out my misery
Track Name: Cry Baby
I’m not casual or kind
Enough to love you like I do
I know that you’re not blind you notice
How I look at you
But don’t you know you look at me the same way too?
So, what have I got to prove?
Cry baby
Late night before I go to sleep
I’m stuck with maybe
Not enough to laugh but enough to weep
Cry baby
Either in the park or on the street
I’m stuck here waiting
With not enough to laugh but enough to weep oh

Please don’t mistake my impatience for insult
My pessimism for fright
Distance makes you strong but I’m weak when I remember
Putting on a bright face
And saying I’m alright

Cry baby
Late night before I go to sleep
I’m stuck with maybe
Not enough to laugh but enough to weep
Cry baby
Either in the park or on the street
I’m stuck here waiting
With not enough to laugh but enough to weep oh

Cry baby
Late night before I go to sleep
I’m stuck with maybe
Not enough to laugh but enough to weep
Cry baby
Either in the park or on the street
I’m stuck here waiting
With not enough to laugh but enough to weep oh
