Track Name: comic sans (demo)
if you stutter shhh and listen
things will happen and you can hear them
what will happen if you're never famous?
you say you'l cross that bridge if and when you come to it

back when comic sans was cool
i'm pretty sure that caring was too
back when comic sans was cool
sleep was easy and eating was too
and i wasn't a finger tip away

sitting alone on the pavement
you wait for your older friends to come save you
picking at the holes in your pocket
you'll lose so many others before you break and patch it

burning holes in your hand with cigarettes
you feel like a person you've only just met

showing up at two in the morning
you know that it's late, you just wanted to see me
tell me about the gun in your closet
you say that you'll miss me, please visit often

back when comic sans was cool
i'm pretty sure that caring was too
back when comic sans was cool
sleeping was easy and eating was too
and i wasn't a finger tip away
Track Name: ding (demo)
she comes from a fake butter family in larchmont
i was glad to be in a place where things go missing easily
i bet she's in a restaurant under a heat lamp she had moved she
hates the sound of time passing

she never reads the articles, just headlines and she tells me all the things
that i told her yesterday but suddenly it's different because now
she agrees with me
she's always drowning in the water that she doesn't drink
she wears headphones to go to sleep

but she's not crazy
unless her mother tells her that she's crazy
she plays the same three chords faithfully
and at the same time longs for more variety
but it's better than being alone
better than being a bore
better to do what you think you must love than be happy

she takes pills for all the things that aren't wrong with her
just to balance it out
she puts herself in other people's shoes and she gets blisters
she's always crying when she realizes that they will never fit
she texts you late at night in a panic

i call her when i'm feeling down and the conversation's always the same
i sense that you are feeling down, am i correct in saying this?
is what she'll say
she will fill a silence, quickly and completely
she just wants you to always be happy

but she's not crazy
unless her mother tells her that she's crazy
she plays the same three chords faithfully and at the same time
longs for more variety
but it's better than being alone
better than being a bore
better to do what you think you must love than be happy

she deserves real answers and clarity
which incidentally is exactly what she gets
and she loves to misinterpret it
because she's so scared of being alone
so scared of being a bore
too scared of doing the things that she loves to be happy
