Recorded October 2019 at Alex's house in Pilsen.
For those days when you wake up n are just flooded with emotions left over from your dreams and everything is blurring together and its raining and you have a headache and can't even remember the last time you felt hopeful but there's almost a certain peace because you just woke up and can't quite remember who/where/why you are


comin down in a one way town and you just run out of gas
leaves of pain, her memories remain but she just went out and passed
and i know where my baby's gonna go when she sleeps out in the trash
and you know by the way your baby goes that she aint comin back

gray skies, it looks like someone's died and the world is turning still
rain falls, shadows on the wall, a photo on a window sill
low light it always feels like night, you wake up here alone
wet bed, sleep sobbin again cuz you dreamed she called your phone
moanin, soft and low

she needs someone to keep her heart beating slow
down this life you gave her can't ever last
it's flying past you faster than a rush
but nothing ever really stays anyway

and drugs for people like us just keep our corpses young
the moon turns, the prozac never works but the xanax keeps you dumb
lost touch with the lovers and the lust and the part of you that was
but it's fine, it happens all the time, that's how this all becomes
just right
it's all just right
