Track Name: Whittled Down - Blooming
The flowers never bloom
There's no air in this room f
The birds will never sing
my ears begin to bleed
The leaves begin to fall
And I've missed all your calls
its so hard to hold my tongue
in my cage where i belong
As I close my eyes and wait
I still can't think straight
And if time was on our side
Think of all we can do
If we didn't have to hide
All the places we would go
If all you did was show
Me the right path home

I've been dying to feel your skin
I've been dying to feel anything
You were my healthiest habit
Beyond life and death
When were both some one else
We'll meet again
Track Name: Whittled Down - Perennial
I’m burning at both ends
The smoke gets in my eyes
They said it would get easier
They said it, but they lied
Why are you so distant?
Why are you so vain?
I feel my body numbing
At least there isn’t pain

I'm living in a haze
Waiting for the weather to change
Life is so exhausting
And I just want to sleep
I finally found my place
I know where I belong
My home is the third rail
Paying for what I did wrong to you

Did I make you feel nervous
Did I make you regret
Did I really have purpose
Or am I better off dead

Born with depression
Ever since I was aware
The world seemed so foreign to me
Like I've been sick
Since the day of birth
Living in another world
Where I can live able and free

I must've spent a decade...
Giving more than I get
I know I’ve been dying
Since I’ve been alive
I guess I'm just too proud
Too proud to say I've lost
But I guess since nothing's free
This is our cost

For a moment...
I heard...
myself talking in my sleep
Fraying at the seams
Leaving me undone
I know I'm just a shellI
But I used to be someone

Did I make you feel nervous
Did I make you regret
Did I really have purpose
Or am I better off dead
Have you come to watch me break
Have you come see me fray
I don't I'll ever change
I'm only here to fill up space

I'm only here for your attention
I'm only here to make you feel okay
I'm only here for entertainment
I'm only here to fill up space
Track Name: The Menagerie - Mini Van
When the lights go out on this town, I hope you'll stick around. I just wanna see you smile again like you did when we were kids; I just wanna see you smile again like you did when we were young and stupid, screaming for things that we never thought we'd reach. Now that we are here tell me where do you wanna be? Just stick around for this. 'Cause you're the only one that could talk me off a bridge at three AM when no one picks up the phone.
Track Name: The Menagerie - Jesse Sears Rd
I've been tearing myself apart in every dream that I ever had, where you were happy again in our minivan across the Midwest, where the sun never set on us. Those friendly faces and kind words will never leave my head. I just wanna be a kid back when things weren't so complicated and love wasn't a temporary word, back when Mom and Dad didn't scream and fight and I didn't scream at night and you never left home. (It all got so complicated)
And I still remember that night, it was pouring the rain and mom cried, and she said that she would never love you again.
Tell me Dad, how do I look on the other side of the glass instead of the other side of the grass.
