Track Name: Nearly Almost Ready
I don't know
whose idea it was to come here
I don't know
if I'd have done it on my own

your telephone
says we're nearly almost ready
(my tummy's jumping butterflies
but I'm glad I took your advice)

I don't care
I don't care

now I'm sold
I've grabbed onto your hand yeah
I can still back out if I need to

we're breaking ground
on some kind of grand plan
(my tummy's jumping butterflies
but I'm glad I took your advice)

I don't care
I don't care

and we visited
all the places we wanted to see
our legs stretched uncontrollably
marched around in our own world
two souls alone

I don't care if anybody sees
I don't care we're adventuring
I don't care what the weatherman
Track Name: Retroactive Continuity
stop saying that
that I should feel it
stop walking past
past I could see it
let’s put our cards on the table

let’s take apart
how we got here
let’s keep the parts
what have we got here
these cards are not all for trading

I’ll give you everything I know
everything I own
everything at all

a trap you hide
paths to follow
a past resides
resides in the hollow
I made mistakes but we all do

hide out of sight
like it matters
with arms out wide
like it matters
I thought we’d walked off the radar

I’ll give you everything I know
everything I own
everything at all

our maps
are not
all traps
all traps
our maps
Sarlacc
are not
our past
these arms you know

our maps
are not
all traps
all traps
our maps
are not
all traps
all traps
Sarlacc your arms will never know
Track Name: Sleeping Patterns
you look around twice at the strangest fountain
I started a timer and it keeps counting
down towards the opposite end of infinity
where we can argue all about the greatest trilogies

and we will never settle, I can never decide
and it's 2am I should be feeling tired
maybe I'll never sleep again
until I do and start this again

am I wasting my own time?
well maybe that's just fine
I don't want to be counting hours wasted

and now I'm dreaming in snapshots of the time that I've spent
turning time travel into pizza and rent
and I'll fall asleep as soon as I get in
and I won't wake up until the early am

it's been so many years maybe the second or third
and If I get out in the next week
I won't need to reset my password

am I wasting my own time?
well maybe that's just fine
I don't want to be counting hours wasted
Track Name: Leaving Town (End of Album Country Song)
caught up late
still awake
trying to undo the mistakes I made
I’m obtuse
you’re immune
to my slovenly attitude
you’re in deep
in your own way
more animals than hours in the day
put me straight
tell me off
until I know enough is enough

you make a salient point
I’m a mess alright
we could fix each other
but where’s the fun in that

like a cat in a road
unwilling to budge
you're accommodating
to a fault almost

caustic note
strained emotes
it's lost on me, whose heart you broke
try to explain
your new villager
I like him but you're distraught
he's a jock
splendid shirt
underpants, leaving town
reset that plot
cut contact
ditch this town it's a write off

you make a salient point
I’m a mess alright
we could fix each other
but where’s the fun in that

like a cat in a road
unwilling to budge
you're accommodating
to a fault almost

and each time, each time I'm acting up
I should take a (new) leaf out of your book
go for a walk with my StreetPass on
play some Animal Crossing
