Track Name: Olive Garden Pt. 1
I am aware that the things that I do should not be influenced by people like you. You’re what ignites my lack of appetite. Ironically enough, you’re eating me alive. You’re waiting for the applause from the crowd. I’m waiting for you to come crumbling down. I’m just a mess, I guess; I see you are too. Why would we slow down what we’ve got to lose by now?
Track Name: Spite
I hung onto verbal signs that you never thought twice about so why should I? You just say grace, and I’ll try to save face. I’m no good but church ain’t great. I constantly argue with myself. I’m the last one that you should reach out to for help. I let things all come down to months and months of sick obsession, leading to the wrong investment. Remember you hate the way I dress. Spite is not a color I should wear to impress. Months and months of my depression, giving you the wrong impression. Remember the day you left? You said this was a year that you wouldn’t forget, just yet. Blend together all the colors that wouldn’t choose to be one or another.
Track Name: Buckle
I thought about calling you a lot that week, to see if you were alright and catch up on everything. But instead, I laid in bed, thinking you would be here when my weekend ends. But it’s just like me to be just like you; apparently a parent leaves a piece of themselves in you. So I hate the blood running through my veins, but I will love and miss you more each day. I’m sorry that I never wrote, I’m sorry that I never called, I’m sorry that I never made a god damn attempt at all. And I will always hate this blood in my veins, but I will love and miss you more each day. He said, “remember me for good things that I did. They may be outweighed by the bad but just forgive me. I was born with disorders, I’m the reason for yours”. Still if you can hear me from the grave, Dad please haunt me every day.
Track Name: Staten- After You
There was a time when I thought we would be together
there was a time when I thought life would be with you
It wasn’t a thought that there would be a life after
It wasn’t a thought that there’s a life after you

with my white shoes, walking towards your street v
and your white room, I’m dancing with your leaves
on your front lawn, our song, lookin like a psycho
wonder where my mind had gone?

Here’s another drink for your blanketed emotions
you don’t need to worry babe it’s on me, I don’t mind.
I’m lookin in your mirrors thinking if my wounds are open.
I was afraid I wasn’t a god in your eyes

Our ribs together, get it severed, watch us move away.
get up, get over, for the better, let the garden fade.
find forever in another like a certain saying.
I’ll find you after, I’ll find you after.

We’ve done wrong, no harm done, bet an empty drink on that
stay on guard, no encore, got no more songs left.
How do we both explain
we’re not one in the same?
I just wanted your eyes again.
Track Name: Staten- Brooklyn
I’ve got the Sundays while you sleep it off,
shy and forgotten you never get up.
Chocolate and coffee
to clean up my thoughts.
Nothing but noise or the silence.
You’ve got the Fridays
while I drink it off,
loud and obnoxious
I’ll never get up.
Movies in blankets to end off the dark.
Nothing but noise or the silence.

I’m still afraid I’m not what you needed
all of your past is what I compete with
nothing but love if you feel defeated
but never enough if you feel defeated.

I’m still afraid I’m not what you wanted
all of your past should be gone and forgotten
a mutual gets fucked up if there was no sorry
a little white pill made you stay until morning.
Track Name: Staten- Kelly
Slow night, heavy eyes,
wondering where you are.
Cluttered mind, assuming right
why can’t just stay alone?

Green eyes, gold hair, fixed on while they all stare
you act like you don’t know this, but I notice that you’re all aware.
Written on your pretty face
live for nights you can’t erase,
die for the love, and love for the praise
praise till you die, till you can’t erase.
Green eyes, gold hair, swear to god there’s no other
you got jealous when I got fucked up and I blacked out with your brother.
Took it out I got home
threatened to pack up your things and let go.
“you say you love me but it never shows
if I ever feel love I’ll let you know.”

if you ever gave a fuck then you gave it right back.
Never wanna lose so I never fight back,
tingle on your lips with your skin in my fist,
with your liquor running quick
I could never right that.
Never like that when I kiss you,
never write back when I miss you
never mind that when I see all your pictures,
never satisfied with yourself when I’m with you.

How can I forget a loss,
when you’re the first
to be moving on?
So who am I when I’m all yours?
Without a cure?
I never learned

Lost my will to sleep without you,
but I lost my will to not think about you.
Thoughts of being confident
got lost when I lost arguments,
you were the one I put my solace in
but you removed your love I was falling in. Automatic when I write songs
ever since my mind gone
embody every word that I see.
See you in every moment
in the corner in the morning
in the coffee that I’m pouring
just to repeat every motion all again.

Where’s my friends, where’s my god,
where’s my veins you settled in?
you only caused you never loved,
you never did.
Dependent, never meant it
manipulative, never said it.

Slow night, heavy eyes,
wondering where you are.
Cluttered mind, assuming right
why can’t just stay alone?
It’s your green eyes, gold hair,
do you love me, do you not care?
Withdraw from your blank stare,
Lost my eyes to see you there.
But it’s not coming back, no,
lock myself in the bedroom,
lost in the world like a recluse
conquer the word like I made you,
but I hate you, and I love you
and I hate myself for loving you
