Track Name: Come With Your Friends
The ten million rough drafts
Everything is just glass
And awkwardly shaped and covered in blood
You know

Exchange smells and glances 
Follow each other from room to room
at the office, wondering where
to go

Wondering if you should keep on
staring at one another
settle on, settle on yes 
you know 

Come witness, come ready
Come with your friends, come with your friends

The ten million rough drafts
Everything is just glass
And awkwardly shaped and covered in blood
You know

Exchange t-shirts and artwork 
sitting on, sitting on the front porch
wondering, wondering where you'll
go

Wonder what it means to love one 
Wonder what it means to love two 
You'll get yours, we'll get ours 
for sure 

Come witness, come ready
Come with your friends, come with your friends

Wonder what it means to love one
Wonder what it means to love two 
Wonder what it means to love one
Wonder what it means to love you

Wonder what it means to love three
Wonder what it means to love four
Wonder what it means to love me
Wonder what it means to love more

Wonder what it means to love one
Wonder what it means to love two 
Wondering what 
happens to me and you 
Track Name: Little State
Peeling back the packing tape
I know that you couldn't stay
But your letter says I'll be okay
So I cross off a day

If I say I have to
Tell me no you don't
If I lock myself in the bathroom
Tell me no you don't

Little state above my breast
Keeper of my happiness
Keep me in your thoughts today
And I'll forget how far away
I'll forget how far away
I'll forget how far away

If I say I have to
Tell me no you don't
If I lock myself in the bathroom
Tell me no you don't
Track Name: Amtrak
You don't like that my clothes don't care
That my hair goes gray and I don't do shit about it
Well I was drinking Genesee in the foyer
Talking about another girl while I was thinking about you

And how you think I'm cold and I know I'm numb and I'm sure you're mad But I just play dumb about it
But sometimes I forget that we're in this mess and reluctantly I feel right at home without you

I've got 8 hundred regrets to dig through
An aviator jacket and a cannonball
I need a time machine to scold myself to tears
I've got 80 thousand threats to live through
One hollow cassette for a fabled love
I need a time machine to clarify my fears

I don't like that your dads a pig
That you get so mad but you don't do shit about it
And she was drinking blue moon in the living room saying that another Year was just another four letter word

I wanna clean myself of the promises that I made when I was getting cosmic about it
But to watch me walk away from all the days we spent so blind and mute must hurt

I’ve got 8 hundred regrets to dig through
An aviator jacket and a cannonball
I need a time machine to scold myself to tears
I've got 80 thousand threats to live through
One hollow cassette for a fabled love
I need a time machine to clarify my fears

Why do all my words keep failing
How could I be so unfeeling
Or have such injuring audacity

Why does Amtrak keep derailing
I could break right through the ceiling
High on existential camaraderie

You don't like that my clothes don't care
That my hair goes gray and I don't do shit about it
Track Name: Up High
I want you
Wanna be you
Can you teach me how to fix my bike

I want to be just like you
Do you like it
How I roll my eyes

I built you up high
I was still too young
I could not think of better lies to live on

I built you up high
I was still too young
I could not think of better lies to live on

I let you down
Look at me now
You taught me well
Do you love me now

I built you up high
I was still too young
I could not think of better lies to live on

I built you up high
I was still too young
I could not think of better lies to live on

I want you
Wanna be you
Can you teach me how to fix my bike
