Track Name: Marrow
there's an emptiness inside of these bones
where the marrow is supposed to be
I'm weak and maybe soon to be jaded
something I don't want to see

well maybe I'm not right

inside there's something moving
some existential part of me
I've been dead, but I'm still somehow breathing
but I've had someone saving me

well maybe I'm not right

there's an unholiness inside of my soul
where my faith was supposed to grow
in the years of finding nothing at all
I found I'm better off on my own
Track Name: The Metamorphosis
if you looked at my spine
you would find vertebrae out of line, and so am I
but insisting you and I are still the same gets harder everyday
when I forget our names

there's nights when my bed won't let me sleep
there's days when I'm too stubborn to be the friend that you need
I've been so busy I forgot to call
but I feel I still do nothing at all

the nights where we write to survive the winter that didn't come
but I'm bleeding and I'm freezing inside
but that's my DNA
I'll use that excuse again

I miss you everyday when I wake up
but you were gone before the sun could ever run
I'm older now and there are things that I would like to stay the same
but I'm metamorphic and changing everyday
Track Name: You Used To Remind Me Of The Sky
you used to remind me of the sky
because I never understood the weather
I never understood a lot of you
but I was in love with what I knew
and I remember there were days when it rained
but I didn't mind

because you were the rays behind the clouds
and the sound of the water weighing down the leaves on the trees
the small spectrum from the sun in the puddle by my feet

you used to remind me of the sky
these days I wake up from the sun
reminded how you are no longer by my side
Track Name: Rodger
I saw your face today
but only on my fridge
it's been a year
but my stomach's still twisted
I thought of the last time you said hi
and I was busy doing dishes
I forgot to reply

it's too late now to wonder the "what if's" and the "why's?"
if I just said hello
and why did you die?
now I spend my time on earth
you are somewhere else
maybe the coffee house

I wonder if he's returned to that door
the last I heard he couldn't go there anymore
these days I feel the same
no I'm not to blame
but my heart aches whenever I hear your name

like the coffee house where you were everyday
and you would say the caffeine was what made you stay
and now I spend my time on earth thinking of you now
thinking of you now

it's too late now to wonder the "what if's" and the "why's?"
if I just said hello
and why did you die?
now I spend my time on earth
you are somewhere else
you are somewhere else
and now I spend my time on earth
thinking of you now
thinking of you now
