Track Name: I Think the Neighbor Kid is Making Serious Strides
"could be better forever" on repeat
and I think it might be true
I "never saw it coming" being better without you
I still smoke alone at the spot I return to
I still bite my nails all the goddamn time
I might not be better forever
but tonight at least I think
tonight I'm fine

I think I'm coming down from the speed
my body aches and I
cant make sense of all of me
the face in the mirror
much more gaunt than it used to be

and i think i'm gonna pass out'
and i think i'm gonna puke
but in the end
i'm doing my best to pull through

and i've been listening to milkshakes
and i've been finding better people
and i'm pretty sure since moving north i'm in a better state

but these massachusetts winters
get pretty fucking cold
still i'm singing shitty emo
and screaming
FUCK THE 860

it's snowing outside but
tonight i'll be drinking indoors
with my friends

there's a pain in my throat and it won't go away
and I've found myself getting stoned every day
i wrote down my reasons to freeze to death
but now that notebook's in somebody's basement
forgotten, and collecting dust

"could be better forever" on repeat
and I think it might be true
I "never saw it coming" being better without you
I still smoke alone at the spot I return to
I still bite my nails all the goddamn time
I might not be better forever
but tonight at least I think
tonight I'm fine

TRY NOT TO HATE ME
(half a pack is not enough to get me through the week
tonight i'll be bumming cigs
we'll be in parking lots
as night fades into dawn
but today i'll be just fine)
