Track Name: Apt 1F
I find the more I say that I don't love you anymore
With poison tears,
you erase my youth

I copped a wishless disconnected attitude
Like faithless friends,
we betrayed our truths

I live my days out in this dirty crosstown dive
Sweating out
the very thing that's
keeping me
alive

Just to write these words, another glass,
a melody,
a knot once tied too tight,
come untied,
burned too bright

I can't help but laugh sometimes
You're not the girl I had in mind
You're just a product of your time

I'd like to say you left me high and dry,
but I can't lie
Your crooked smile,
the very thing that made you beautiful,
has died.

Only some commit the crime,
but we all end up doing time,
and pay our fines
Checking years off of our lives

Though I'm stuck with you for now,
one day I'll wipe your dirt
from off my brow,
and move along

Sun's coming up,
and nothing left for me to do
but somehow I keep coming back to you

Sun's coming up,
and nothing left for me to do
Girl, I ain't through with you

Sun's coming up,
and nothing left for me to do
but somehow I keep coming back to you

Sun's coming up,
and nothing left for me to do
but somehow I keep coming back to you

This town will make
a bleeding martyr out of you
but somehow I keep coming back to you
Track Name: The Ferryman
Mr. Ferryman
I've been trodding on the shore for way too long
Only got a penny,
can you help me cross this river?
Float me like a feather,
back to home

Mr. Ferryman
Got no baggage, no companion,
I'm a mess
I can't feel my fingers,
every season sings like winter,
but before I go,
can I make one request?

When life feels like a noose
Cut me loose and float me gently out to sea
Please don't wake me up
For if you do,
I might be stuck inside my dreams

Undertaker man,
can't you drop me even more than six feet
deep?
Seen so much beneath these skies,
I'm wondering what the view is like
tucked beneath a comforter of
peat

When you're digging, man,
won't you make sure that the ground is packed real tight?
Don't let me escape my grave,
to see just what a wreck I've made
I'll forget it all within a night

When life feels like a noose
Cut me loose and float me gently out to sea
Please don't wake me up
For if you do,
I might be stuck inside my dreams

Mr. Preacher, man,
won't you please exaggerate my eulogy?
Lord, I know it's sinful if you lie about my story,
but I need to be remembered as the man
my parents wanted me to be

When life feels like a noose
Cut me loose and float me gently out to sea
Please don't wake me up
For if you do,
I might be stuck inside my dreams
If you do, I might be stuck
