Elsewhere 03:12
These traffic lines keep passing by on a road as black as ice black beneath my eyes I couldn't find any signs to guide me now it's like I'm destined to drive around and around again looking for the end can't keep my mind off you tonight the street is dead, cars keeping quiet I sped through red and yellow lights just to be elsewhere your lonely highway eyes keep this heart alive your lonely highway eyes but with the headlights at my back I can't stay on this track forever these diner signs no longer shine swallowed up by the past lost on absent minds I'm surrounded by an endless valley uncanny as well as unkind where everyone's the same and everyone's afraid
Used To Know 02:27
We traded in the romance auctioned off the thrill everything is different now with so much time to kill I remember a place where it always felt like spring we would run outside and let the screen door swing I get so attached sometimes yeah, it's as though the sun keeps setting on the things we used to know all the handwritten letters that you gave to me are all going up in smoke like effigies I could carry for a while this torch of love but the ways have changed, it just won't be enough
In Reverse 01:57
Shimmer 04:14
The thoughts race back again like thawing frozen leaves all dim or burning out lights strung up along the eves your long brown sun-kissed hair the dresses you would wear I never used to care Shimmer the voice that I once knew since taken by the breeze destined to fade into a distant memory now my ears begin to ring the silence deafening we haven't learned a thing Shimmer sometimes I want you too much sometimes I'm cold to the touch
Valspeak 03:51
Isn't it strange how every single pavement path leads you to the end of the cul-de-sac pay phones never gonna call you back I could've sworn this city used to be so rad whatever happened, did you ask your dad we're looking down our noses at a passé fad oh when you whisper to me the voice still carries down neighborhood streets it's in the ghostly aura of idle TVs that bittersweet valspeak tell me why something hiding in periphery gets a lot of flak like its blasphemy when it's sweeter than a splash of grenadine what can I do for a little of that joie de vivre an insulated bubble of security looking at the world like I'm seventeen
It's another day and you're on another screen I am living in a glass house with no safeguards in between I can't wait to get outside you can't wait to have your fun as we sit beneath a monolith that's blocking out the sun oh you say you could go back we both know that isn't true complications have evolved other problems have ensued I still feel the cold hard letters and your acronyms of love I reciprocate half-heartedly pretending it's enough and I never thought we'd be the ones to phone it in for something less and I never thought we'd be the ones to dance alone in nothingness and you're keeping still but you feel a chill and your eyes just stare as if they're looking miles away from me
People change I don't we're still wearing yesterday's clothes people age I won't we're still wearing yesterday's clothes


Spacing out in basement bedrooms, that last pizza delivery of the night, road trips through ghost towns, anachronistic roller rinks, a transcendental epiphany at the 7-Eleven, existential beach parties, public access TV insomnia, a skeleton in the driveway...
