Track Name: Pink Lemonade
The house is cold
And I'm all alone
And I can't come down

The sun is out
(I wanna I wanna)
And you are out
If I can find you

But you can come upstairs
And we'll play fair
But not for long

We can stay up late
(I wanna I wanna)
Play pink lemonade
And I'm coming down after you

(Coming down)
After you
Track Name: Holiday Haunts
Livelihood
Lives in vacation
Floating
Lives off creation

Low hanging leaves
Are falling in her head
Heavy heat
She says she'd rather be dead

They never really
Stay there for very long
Holiday haunts
And she is gone

My youth
Drink to feel young again
Drifting, I'll be out
I don't know when

Low hanging leaves
Are falling in her head
Heavy heat
She says she'd rather be dead

They never really
Stay there for very long
Holiday haunts
And she is gone

You know it
Feels so good
To be alive

You know it
Feels so good
To lead a lie

Low hanging leaves
Are falling in her head
Heavy heat
She says she'd rather be dead

They never really
Stay there for very long
Holiday haunts
And she is gone

Chlorine drinks
Weighing down like lead
Face down, wet
She says she'd rather be dead

They never really
Stay there for very long
Holiday haunts
And she is gone
Track Name: A-Serpentine
I've been told not to look through the cracks
It simmers and turns
And bites you back

It hangs low in the air
And whispers me
"A-Serpentine"

Going in circles
And crawling down your spine

It's somebody's dream
It lays on the floor
It's eating the words
I catch it by the tail

I've looked an eye
Into a lot of sleepless dreams
It steals my nights
And cackles as it gleams

I sometimes don't know
If I will be okay
Shut you out sharply
I know I'll find someway

It follows you down
I'm running around
It's eating the words
I catch it without fail

It's somebody's dream
It lays on the floor
It's eating the words
I catch it by the tail

It follows you down
I'm running around
It's eating the words
I catch it without fail
Track Name: Straw House
(Blow it out)

In the reflections
Recently found
She was in love with a notion
She caught hanging by a thread

And the ideas were only bound
By burning doubts
And dust under the nightstand

On a hill, in a straw house
You'll find the naivety chased away
Slow dancing underwater
With a love that's gone
In a straw house

Voices tell her to get out
But the voices inside, say otherwise
(Just cower and hide)
Oh, kisses on the head
One day I'll know that I'm dead

On a hill, in a straw house
You'll find the naivety chased away
Slow dancing underwater
With a love that's gone
In a straw house

I don't care what I'm told
I just want to grow old
These thoughts are leaving me cold
(Blow it out)

On a hill, in a straw house
You'll find the naivety chased away
Slow dancing underwater
With a love that's gone
In a straw house
Track Name: Lua
Lua, Lua
Hanging close to the light
Blinded by it never see
The days go by

Clinging to the mantra
Say you'll stay okay
But still drag yourself from
The depths of the day

It still bothers you
What they say
What they believe
What they see

Hold on to pillars
You've built in yourself
You will fall, only slight
And you will carry yourself well

Leave behind their cities
Of hubris and rust
And you must keep your vision clear
Of ignorance and dust

Don't let it sting you, what they said
I know sometimes we all wish ourselves dead
But imagine that golden life you could've lead
Hang on for me instead
