Crystal Eyes [The Intro]

I notice things most others don't

A stranger's laugh or the way bubbles float

On puddles after the rain

It's fascinating, the mundane

The ordinary, basic, plain

Commonplace, average, simple days

Dismiss them as monotony

But it's inside these moments that I see

A wonderous glimmer shining

The universe reminding me 

That there are still things worth finding

When I feel so lost inside

You can see beauty in the boredom

If you just know how to look for it

It rests, it breathes

Quietly

Hiding inside the in-betweens

An unassuming nothing-much

Is cast aside by eyes left shut

But

New perspectives, I often find

Burst brightly inside of a darkened mind

Shifted gaze, tilt to the head

Look up, and down, and through, and then

A pause so that I may reflect

On all these spectacles that I inspect

Tangling trees and spider webs

The way the seasons flow and ebb

All that returns from with'ring death

The heavens' height, the oceans' depth

And then the thought of all the things

That lie beyond what we perceive

I plague my brain with how and why

But over time I've realized

Oddities, we are exceptions

And therein lies the great connection

We exist, we live and breathe

Alongside all these intricacies

I think that you could see it, too

With just a moment to adjust your view

Amid the chaos, vague and blurred

The grand designs in the absurd

You make those wonders crystalize

When you view the world through crystal eyes

Look Away

I'm seein' some things I don't really wanna see

A little dark, little disturbing

Like broken glass and blood on teeth

My god, my god, I'm looking at me

I'm healin' wrong, a bust recovery

This isn't how it was supposed to be

The way my joints have started settling

My god, my god, can you even believe?

How did I get down here?

Suffocated by all the black and blue

Such a strange sensation when you

Can't even recognize you

Don't know when it happened

Well, it must have been slowly over time

I'm losing my mind, losing my mind

Oooo

Gettin' comfy here in the decay

In the darkest of depths where it asked me to stay

Don't look at me like that, I know it's insane

But it's two different things, what I do and I say

'Cuz I told you I'd make it, told you I'm safe

Told you that next time it won't be the same

But when I try to change,

I break under the weight

Then I check all the wreckage and can't look away

No, I can't look away

No, no, can't look away

Yuh, yuh, when I check all the wreckage I can't look away

No, I can't look away

No, no, can't look away

No, yuh, when I check all the wreckage I can't look away

How did I get down here?

Suffocated by all the black and blue

Such a strange sensation when you

Can't even recognize you

Don't know when it happened

Well, it must have been slowly over time

I'm losing my mind, losing my mind

Oooo

How did I get down here?

Suffocated by all the black and blue

Such a strange sensation when you

Can't even recognize you

Don't know when it happened

Well, it must have been slowly over time

I'm losing my mind, losing my mind

Oooo

Losing my mind, losing my mind

Yeah

The World Is On Fire

I met a man walking past down the hall

Suit matched his tie and he stood ten feet tall

But the secrets he'd hidden, the things he had done

Made him hate everything about who he'd become

The world is on fire

The world is on fire

The world is on fire

Once knew a woman who painted her words

Preached and projected so everyone heard

How important it is to let somebody in

But her own locks where fastened too tight in the end

The world is on fire

The world is on fire

The world is on fire

And I watch it burn

I watch it burn

Oh, when will they learn?

It only gets worse

When it's left undisturbed

I see them sitting there day after day

Wondering what kinds of things they would say

If they had for a moment someone who'd accept

All the things they've kept hidden inside of their heads

But assure them it's nothing, I promise you'll find

That it will keep creeping up into their minds

And they're cover it, smother it, hold it all back

Until, ashes to ashes

They'll reach for a match

The world is on fire

The world is on fire

The world is on fire

And I watch it burn

I watch it burn

Oh, when will they learn?

It only gets worse when it's left undisturbed

Once it's ignited and when it explodes

You'll be surprised by how quickly it grows

But before it consumes you, one thing you should know

Don't fear the flames when the burn is controlled

Fuchsia Lipstick

Fuchsia lipstick

In the corner of her smile

Must have missed it

Hadn't seen her in awhile

Hit me with it

No water in those words

Well, I'd been itchin'

To understand the hurt

Should I have been excited?

I reached inside my brain

Senses were heightened

But the words sounded the same

Well, I'd been frightened

All that pushin' me away

He'd been enlightened

Said I'd bite

Grabbed a knife

Shoved it right in

Oh, oh, everyone who covered their eyes

Oh, oh, wish they could see how much it meant

Oh, oh, the moment that you realized

Oh, oh, yeah, the day you tried on my fuchsia lipstick

That new reflection

Saw her meeting her own gaze

Must be refreshing

To finally fit inside your name

Made no objection

In temporary pain

But with some inspection

I came to terms and dug the grave

Took it in stride, yeah,

All that time I stuck around

So much to hide it

But we never made a sound

Held on like hyphens

Just slid between the vows

'Til it divided

Day he died

She was ripe

Yeah, she brightened

Oh, oh, everyone who covered their eyes

Oh, oh, wish they could see how much it meant

Oh, oh, the moment that you realized

Oh, oh, yeah, the day you tried on my fuchsia lipstick

Your identity is something you should never have to compromise. And there is no compromising, this is who I am. And I'm not gonna deny that for the sake of having a relationship with somebody. It's not worth it.

They whispered, "abomination"

Cuttin' ties, no, no relation

Stand tall, no negotiation

This is your authentication

Baby, no more hesitation

What a lovely transformation

Lipstick, lashes, affirmation

In summation

Standing ovation

Oh, oh, everyone who covered their eyes

Oh, oh, wish they could see how much it meant

Oh, oh, the moment that you realized

Oh, oh, yeah, the day you tried on my fuchsia lipstick

All My Friends

Stay out

'Til 2 AM

Rack up a tab, pay it off, and then do it again

Pay a stranger

To drive me home

Pull up my sheets, fall asleep, and then wake up alone

Friday, Saturday night

Sunday scaries with the fading light

Told myself we'd be all right

But all my friends keep

All my friends keep

All my friends keep getting high

Caught in a circle and we don't know why

Searching for something we could never find

Wanted to fly but we learned how to hide

Now all my friends keep getting high

Go all night

'Cuz I work all day

When it all fades to dark, light a spark, and go out with a bang

And my parents

Say I'm a shame

'Cuz I'm losing their game but I never really wanted to play

Friday, Saturday night

Sunday scaries with the fading light

Told myself we'd be all right

But all my friends keep, all my friends keep

All my friends keep getting high

Caught in a circle and we don't know why

Searching for something we could never find

Wanted to fly but we learned how to hide

Now all my friends keep getting high

(Oh, we don't know how to get by

We just keep searching for that high)

All my friends keep getting high

Caught in a circle and we don't know why

Searching for something we could never find

Wanted to fly but we learned how to hide

Now all my friends keep getting high

I lost myself

That mess behind me

My mind, deceased

Returns me to peace

This Weather

Uh, hey, I just walked into the party, but I never heard back from you, so I wasn't sure if you were gonna be here or not? So, jut give me a call when you get a second. Uh, really hope you're doing okay. Bye.

Hey, what's up? Forgot to take my meds today

Wasn't on purpose but so far I feel okay

I know that you've been worried 'bout my state of mind

But I can really promise that I'm feeling fine

The sun is shining kind of brightly, don't you think?

I just remembered there's a pile of dishes in the sink

I stopped singing in the shower when I wash my hair

I just hide behind the water 'cuz it's quiet there

I like to stare at empty walls sometimes

'Cuz they remind me of my insides

Some days are better than others

Some days I can't get out of bed

My sisters and my brothers

Worry 'bout the things inside my head

Try to keep my bases covered

Yeah, just ask all of my closest friends

All this weather that I'm walkin' under

I don't think it's ever gonna end

No, no

I don't think it's ever gonna end

Hey, what's up? I'm sorry for the late reply

I saw your message when you texted me last night

I never realized just how dark my bedroom is

'Til my phone lit up and I saw what you said

But anyway, I think I'm on the up and up

Oh, are you busy? I don't want to interrupt

Just thought I'd let you know I'm better this morning

I go through silent spells, they tend to be a warning

I keep it to myself when I'm hurtin'

'Cuz I don't wanna be a burden

Some days are better than others

Some days I can't get out of bed

My sisters and my brothers

Worry 'bout the things inside my head

Try to keep my bases covered

Yeah, just ask all of my closest friends

All this weather that I'm walkin' under

I don't think it's ever gonna end

No, no

I don't think it's ever gonna end

No, no

I don't think it's ever gonna end

I've gotta tell ya, it gets cold out there

Grab an umbrella get a coat to wear

I've gotta tell ya, it gets cold out there

Grab an umbrella get a coat to wear

I said, I've gotta tell ya it gets cold out there

Grab an umbrella get a coat to wear

I said, I've gotta tell ya

I've gotta tell ya

I've gotta tell ya

Grab an umbrella 'cuz

Some days are better than others

Some days I can't get out of bed

My sisters and my brothers 

Worry 'bout the things inside my head

Try to keep my bases covered

Yeah, just ask all of my closest friends

All this weather that I'm walkin' under

I don't think it's ever gonna end

No, no

I don't think it's ever gonna end

No, no

I dont't think it's ever gonna

Oh, Mother

When I was younger

I felt that pull

The slowest aching

The numbness dull

You said, "I'm sorry"

But I didn't know

It was for the piece of you

You left inside my soul

Could you see it hiding

When you held me first?

In that falling January snow

Did you know I held that curse?

Is that why?

I feel your eyes bear into me

I feel my weight fall so heavily

Onto your shoulders

Now that I'm older

You still carry all of it

Oh, mother

Oh, mother

My tiny body

Could never sleep

For all the hell inside me building up

Left previews in my dreams

"How could you know that?"

You used to say

But now I know you were just wond'ring

If I'd grow and be okay

I think you felt then

I think you knew

That this life would spit on me

The same way that it spit on you

Do you remember?

Do you recall?

When I was just 19 and lost myself

In that empty parking lot?

I wrote you a letter

To say goodbye

But you never saw those pages

'Cuz I made the choice to try

Now I'm here aging

But it remains

And so I've learned that I must write the tune

Around that dark refrain

And each time

I feel your eyes bear into me

I feel my weight fall so heavily

Onto your shoulders

Now that I'm older

You still carry all of it

Oh, mother

Oh, mother

All those long nights

Those cries for help

When all you knew to do was hold me close

To protect me from myself

In those moments I knew for certain I was loved

Oh, mother, I hope you know that was enough

It was enough

Lullaby

Messed up again today

There's nothing left to say

You're hollow

You feel so hollow

All your lights blew out

There's only darkness now

With more to follow

More darkness follows

When you've given all that you can

Just to end up where you began

Take a breath, my dear, take my hand

This, your lullaby

It's gonna be all right

Maybe not tonight

But, darling, don't give up the fight

Rest your bones, rest your bones

It's okay to feel alone

Why do they all expect

Me to always be my best?

What more can I do?

I'm doing all I know how to

All the pretty words they tell

Me I know they all mean well

But have they been through

Anything that I've been through?

If you open up, shed your skin

Show me all the places you've been

Promise I'd still sing to you then

This, your lullaby

It's gonna be all right

Maybe not tonight

But, darling, don't give up the fight

Rest your bones, rest your bones

It's okay to feel alone

It can get lonely in the dark

It can get lonely in the dark

When you can't see anybody else

Standing where you are

This, your lullaby

It's gonna be all right

Maybe not tonight

But, darling, don't give up the fight

Rest your bones, rest your bones

I hope you know you're not alone

Rest your bones, rest your bones

I hope you know you're not alone
