Track Name: Hey Pharmacy Guy! I Like You, You Got Style
If only I could be more like you and ignore
All of the damage you've been causing me
He's a funny man, he's a funny man
But his jokes do not make me laugh

Nursing matters now more than ever
But still you left me you left me bleeding
Love me and I'll love you back

You traveled to Jupiter and back at light speed
And now I've aged I've aged 96 years

The choices were made perfectly clear
And still you left me you left me bleeding
And I do not I do not want to bleed anymore
Love me and I'll love you back

Love me and I'll love you back

I won't dress like a target
If you ignore the phone

If you ignore the phone
Track Name: Retrorespect
The weeks marched by
With increasing resolve
And you laid in wait
While i tried every lock

What can I say
To make everything better?

You didn’t say a word
And I refused to speak
You focused on core
While bottles defocused me

What can I say
That I haven’t said before?

If I run
So far away from here
If I run
So far away from here

What can I say
To make this easier?
What can I say
To make this easier?

If I run
So far away from here
If I run
So far away from here

We can both begin again

So far away from here
Track Name: Heaven Is A Place On Earth
Ooh, baby, do you know what that's worth?
Ooh, heaven is a place on earth
They say in heaven, love comes first
We'll make heaven a place on earth
Ooh, heaven is a place on earth

When the night falls down
I wait for you and you come around
And the world's alive with the sound
Of kids on the street outside

When you walk into the room
You pull me close and we start to move
And we're spinning with the stars above
And you lift me up in a wave of love

Ooh, baby, do you know what that's worth?
Ooh, heaven is a place on earth
They say in heaven love comes first
We'll make heaven a place on earth
Ooh, heaven is a place on earth

When I feel alone, I reach for you
And you bring me home
When I'm lost at sea I hear your voice
And it carries me

In this world we're just beginning
To understand the miracle of living
Baby, I was afraid before
But I'm not afraid anymore

Ooh, baby, do you know what that's worth?
Ooh, heaven is a place on earth.
They say in heaven love comes first
We'll make heaven a place on earth
Ooh, heaven is a place on earth

In this world we're just beginning
To understand the miracle of living
Baby, I was afraid before
But I'm not afraid anymore

Ooh, baby, do you know what that's worth?
Ooh, heaven is a place on earth
They say in heaven love comes first
We'll make heaven a place on earth
Ooh, heaven is a place on earth
Track Name: Wash
I can see the city lights
From this old bedroom.
I can approximate a line
That goes from me to you.

Unfrozen, we'll wash away.

And these, these years we've spent
Watching paint dry
Will be absorbed in the midst
Of the echoes of our spines.

Unfrozen, we'll wash away.

And our actions will burn us all.

Unfrozen, we'll wash away.

I can see the city lights
From this old bedroom.
Track Name: Unsuccessfully Searching for Ghosts
Breaking away from reason.
These thoughts and dreams are colorblind.
Unable to envision anything else.
This oasis is all that's sustaining life.

And there is no other stability in sight.

Guarded by stupidity and fools.
Waiting, deluded and neglected.
Clinging to the only thing
She can call dependence.

And there is no other stability in sight.

I will drown myself in my own fears.
I will pick apart my nightmares.
And create a place where I am king.
