Track Name: Seasoned Veteran
I was the only face with a name
and you wouldn't leave without me.
I was waiting on New Year's Day
to change everything about me.

...and the woman in your life at that time
was hanging on the line
as doctors looked you over.
A seasoned veteran in the theatre of life.
I couldn't help but second guess you
as I sat by your side
and I regret it now.

To be the space between and the line
that makes every mile seem shorter.
To be the only gleam in the eye
of some beautiful beholder.
Am I to you just a way to pass the time?
A means to rectify the twiddling of thumbs?
The restlessness of limbs didn't keep you up at night
but something else always did.

You know what it is.
Track Name: What's Been Keeping You?
Feeling like something
kept in a jar you're
collecting dust now.

Like it meant nothing.
You don't think of them.
They're on another shelf.

You think that what won't
kill you will come close
and that alone's enough..

..to keep your hopes from
getting the best of
you and your unscathed home.

Count every breath
as they crawl out of your chest
and sing songs to keep at arm's length away.

With the worst over now
you'll be better off without
what's been keeping your body from floating.
