Track Name: a modern divinity
i am not salvation
and i am not a revelation
and i am not your beacon, honey
but i am my own creation

i have not come again
i am no savior among men
but you can call me when, honey
you need me again

but i am light
and i am sky
i am sea
and i am night
and i am a river's course
i am hell
and i am fucking openminded
but i bet you can tell
Track Name: blackout year
this was the year i cut my hair
i cut people out
and i stayed aware

this was the year i rode around
in people's cars
and talked too loud

this was the year
i lost track of time
this was the year
i took back what was mine
this was the year
my eyes were always red
this was the year
i never left my bed

but it's not enough this time
it's not enough this time
for the calendars to change
to bring me back to life
it's not enough this time
Track Name: waxing crescent
i don’t believe in phases
but i drift with the moon
she moves so patiently
and so do you

and you were warm that night when we were alone
and you told me it was okay to go

and you took it well when i wanted to die
and you told me to take my time

but you loved me and you loved me good
and i would love you more if i could

i don’t believe in phases
but i drift with the moon
she moves so patiently
and so do you
Track Name: haunted house in the middle of main street
we drive down main street
and there's a house
that i've never even seen.
that same house
with all my memories
but it's not a part of me

a poker chip necklace
is donning my flat chest
the yard is full of
dead grass
but i don't care about that

i got a holy medal from you
but i don't know who to pray to
cos the medal is cold
and i am too
i can't be with you
Track Name: i'm sorry for the wait
i’m sorry for the wait
i’m sorry that you had to wait
for me to get in a better place
i’m sorry it was more important to you
i’m sorry i had to be better for you


i’m sorry for keeping you
you’ve got stuff to do
and as long as i’m not dead
you’ve done your job i guess

cuz
i’ve tried living
i’ve tried dying
i’ve tried loving
but i’m done trying
Track Name: just act like i'm good at loving back
it’s easy if you know what to do
and you know that i never ever do

i loved you i loved you
and months before i lost you i knew
that you had given up
and you made your choice
and it was time for you to go home

i tried as hard as i could to show you that
but you never talked back
and you would never ever answer me back
could you hear me though?

it must’ve been hard to be here all alone
cuz everyone you loved had all gone home
and you were left here all alone
i forgive you
go home
Track Name: that was very kind of you
it was very kind of you
to love me like you do
to let me love you too
to be my honey and i your babe
where i feel safe
it was very kind of you
to love me that way

it was very kind of you
to be here when i needed you
to always come through
and you can leave whenever you want
cuz you've been with me for so long
and i'll love you when you want
i'll love you when you want

it was a very kind thing
for you to be there when i sing
but sometimes i'm just singing shit
and i get carried away with it
but i wanna get carried away with you
(is that ok with you?)
