Track Name: Church Steps
We carry boxes to and from houses.
Clouds in the sky hang over the trees,
the one's we'd climb without shoes on our feet.

The weather tells the story better than I ever could.
I ended up like I always do and like you always knew I would.
I saw the future and it wasn't good.

If what they say is true, then nothing really matters.
I've fought and I've fallen from places I thought were safe.
Home is where the heart is, not just the place you were raised.

I'm always begging for your help.
Like on Tuesday night when I sat by myself
behind the church, tired and hurt.
I don't skate anymore that shit's bad for your health.

The weather tells the story better than I ever could.
The rain on my face leaves stains and a trace of a day and a place I felt good.
Track Name: Flower
I'm just a flower in your bathroom sink
The ice that left the neighborhood frozen
When everyone had a terrible week

What do you say when you're facing yourself
When you leave behind everything
And you let down everyone else?

Don't turn your back on me
Save me from feeling like me
When your hands are still holding a bad dream
It means nothing to me
Or so it seems
What the hell does that say about me?

Woke up in a sweat
Facing the wall
I had a dream about your whereabouts
And exactly where that leaves me

Bent out of shape
But not enough to wear me out
I've come to a conclusion:
I won't let myself be weak
