Track Name: Port Authority
My feet are tired, shoulders sore
Got my life in two bags
It's the weight of my world, I've been here before
Different concrete, same cold floor

Feeling all too familiar on your floor

Port Authority just let me go home
I'm tired and completely alone
Track Name: Sucker
I heard your car door slam and took a deep breath
I sighed to compress the things I'd like to address
Like how I don't even know you 'cause you don't know yourself
These mind games you're playing are affecting my health

I don't know you 'cause you don't know yourself

I don't know you, now I don't want to
Track Name: Sinker
We're walking in hopes to hold up the setting sun
With each step it drops further, more damage done
I tried so hard to keep myself afloat, but now there's water in my throat

I could only swim for so long
When I gave in, I had oars for arms
Rowing slowly to the shore
We washed up and then we walked slow
Track Name: Mary's Friends
I watched you fall away when I cut the ties that kept me from being me
False friends fleeting - stay gone, stay away

Cut my name out of your vocabulary as if I disappeared
'Cause all you ever wanted was someone to drink with
For that, among other reasons, you won't be missed

You're just a kid with a bad habit
Track Name: How to Sleep
Patience expired long before this war settled at home
When you breathe it breaks my bones
So hold your breath until you can't
I'm spinning in the web you've spun

I tried my best with you

Who really knows how to sleep under the weight of lies you tell me?
Who really knows how to sleep under the weight of lies?
You tell me

I tried my best with you, but you never followed through
