Track Name: Captain Movies
Some night I fall asleep
And some nights I stay up
Because some days I've lived too much
And some day not enough

So I'll keep letting my hair
Cover up my eyes
Force myself to laugh
And teach myself to smile

And maybe then
I can
Convince myself
That I feel fine

It's hard just to talk about
And harder to write it out
I think I'm getting better
But can't get past my doubts

So I'll grab your hand and take you
To the golf course or the creek
And I'll scream "fuck this one
I promise I'll feel better next week"

And maybe then
I can
Convince myself
That I feel fine
Track Name: Swimming in a Pool in a Long Sleeve Sun Shirt
I can't wait for a day
Where I can see you face to face
And say
That I did better

And after then
We won't speak ever again
And I'd be better off not having you fucking with my head
But then again

So please stop yelling
So I can get some sleep
I'm not even listening just like how you don't
Listen to me
Track Name: Next Stop: Wayne Junction
Look in her eyes
notice how wide they are
whisper between breaths to me
to tell me what you saw

Well here's your answer
to that question
you asked yourself three months ago
and asked me on my driveway

I won't
tell you
because you know more than I do

I won't
tell you
I know you'll do what you have to
