Track Name: Old Man And The Sea
I was dreaming of lions
And lying in the sand
I was looking down
At the scars of my left hand

It's better to be lucky
But I rather be exact
I'm pulling pennies out of wishing wells
Yeah, I'm taking them back

If I was a younger man
I could have made a better stand
Against the slate the arrows of light
I could have made it out
I could have been all right

Never wanted to feel like
An old man and the sea
Never wanted to be like
To be or not to be
It's too late now, I've already been cast out
The whales and the waves
At mercy, to how the ocean behaves
And the sharks are coming in

Much faster than the shoreline
I'm sure I'm not fine
Even though, I fucking tried
To fucking stand up straight and fucking be ok
Well fuck if it mattered anyways

I was dreaming of lions and bleeding on the sheets
When I looked up, there was a young man taking care of me
Track Name: Home Alone While Watching Home Alone
Your clear intentions to seek my imperfections
Mask the guilt you carry from all my past mistakes
Cinderblocks tied to my feel so when you fuck up my week
I drown from all the weight
That I carry from those years when I drank 30 beers
Just to numb my face
To you I'm a disgrace

This is the promise of a Relapse
A commitment to my past

I wish this was all a joke
I'm broken down and I'm broke
Let's continue this next May
Might as well Ruin another birthday

I'm sorry that I hurt you like he did
This must be tough, coming from your kid
Through the despair and countless apologies
I want you to know you are the reason why I bleed

This is the promise of a Relapse
A commitment to my past
Track Name: Mike Brolin Eating Funnel Cake
I sat at 40th and market, humming that song
That song you used to sing along to back when we were a thing
'It's 8 in the morning. You've been crying all night' but I'm not waking up

Do you sleep all that well anymore?
Do you feel the need to lie about who you were?

I've been dreaming less frequently
about who I think I am supposed to be
My autonomy and self-agency
have all been consumed by codependency

I don't sleep all that well anymore.
I still need that feeling
of something familiar

In the morning I'll remember everything
That's fine. I'm fine
I'm sure he treats you right
And all in good time
I will get it right,
but not tonight, not tonight.
