Track Name: Woodhull
[instrumental]
Track Name: Get Me Out
a million miles
from where you you would most like to be
i can feel this whole building
collapsing on me

nobody sees me
nobody hears
nobody wants me
but they still keep me here

let the layers of paperwork blanket me whole
no one's telling me anything i need to know

get me out of this place

a million miles
from where you should actually be
i'm just watching the clock
while they're burying me
Track Name: Put The Chain On
when the world
is waking up
i close my eyes

when the world
is waking up
i put the chain on the door

are they working on you
like they're working on me?
Track Name: Honestly
honestly
I don't know what I should say
i can't find a place to start

honestly
i just need some time away
this is tearing me apart

what am i supposed to do
with all of this?

let's pretend
that it won't always be this way
even though we know
the truth

let's pretend
that i'm not miles away
even though
i'm here with you

what am i supposed to do
with all of this?
Track Name: Footing
i've heard enough
i've had enough
my head is pounding

on the way
i lost my way
i lost my footing

all i see
is foreign to me,
so why
do i
feel like I'm home?

i fixed my gaze
for several days
but i wasn't looking

you pay in time
they make you wait
time's on their side
Track Name: Brooklyn Below
[instrumental]
Track Name: No Favors
what is it you think you're giving me
when you look at me that way?
what is it you think you're giving me
that i can't go get somewhere else for free?

well it's not for me to say
and you won't listen to me anyway
Track Name: I Was Wrong
i used to think
that i was was strong
but now i know
that i was wrong

there is no compass for where i am
no solid ground where i can stand
so i'm giving up
because there's no point

i used to think
that i was good
but clearly i
misunderstood

there is no compass for where i am
no way to find out where i should stand
so i'm in the dark
where i belong

no need to locate
a place to stand
and i've given up
because know i know
Track Name: Gone
it hurts too much to look back
no worse than where i am now
but i don't care to see that
and the future's crashing down
now everything is red
and every moment aches
throbbing in my head
the sum of my mistakes

where one man used to stand
you look and there are none
you swear you know what you saw
but what you saw is gone
you see what you believe
you believe in what you see
but whatever might've been
there's nothing left of me

(what you knew is gone)
Track Name: You Can't See Them (But They're There)
you can't see them
but they're there
they hang above you in the air

and you can't stop them coming through
or coming starkly into view

and you can't stop them coming down
their weight just pins you to the ground

every shred of wrong you do
every word that you let through
every thing you should have done
pressing on you like a ton

don't even bother getting up
this storm will not be letting up

don't be so hard on yourself
