Plan. 03:57
It plays on a loop A whole tape full of white noise The way the light is shifting The way the sound settles Message on a wire Flares and signal fires Everything I wrote Scrubbed clean from the wall Was never really there at all. These things just come to me at night.

Supermoon 03:11
Put the pin back in the grenade Don't let me distract you This colossal mess that you made Living in the vacuum They peel you off the pavement: "First time in a minute; otherwise behaving." Just don't drop that gimmick It's always cloudy when there's a supermoon in the sky Found the sociopath and the secret supply Keep your shit together. Control yourself for just a second Don't upset the balance Product functions as expected: Monochromatic palette I've got bad ideas for days, man I keep them all clenched up in my left hand It's always cloudy when there's a supermoon in the sky Keep your shit together.

Fuck all of this noise I've seen you on the TV Pitch-corrected voice Threatening to eat me Everyone better lay low tonight It's starting to get weird out there. I can dismantle it overnight I can't protect it I have defected I can dismantle it overnight All of you look the same anyway This got out of hand quick These kids don't know they're starving Someone had to step in Subvert this shitty party Slight of hand and night maneuvers Everyone better lay low tonight It's starting to get weird out there. I can dismantle it overnight I can't protect it I have defected I can dismantle it overnight All of you look the same anyway

Stay Close 04:04
I wasn't gonna go anywhere for a while There is fraudulence in the smile And I always have to make it about me And you don't fake your feelings in your sleep Do you, baby? I need to find a place I think I've lost my compass I don't think I could find you I don't know how I got here In case I lose you somewhere Stay close Stay close to me.
5.
The drive could last forever I do not know where I am This is probably not my home I didn't have a plan for this one I am mostly still in control Just let me sleep Turn the lights down. In whispers and murmurs You do not remember a thing This is probably just a dream Our time is running out, love We are very close to the end Come on, grab your friends Turn the lights down.
