Track Name: Benedict Drive
We buried our bare feet in the grass
And watched the waves crash on the shore.
We spent our days chasing seabirds
But every night we let the crows follow us home.
I let the darkness consume me
Because I stopped trying.
I’m sorry.

Sometimes I was afraid we were born to relive our parent’s mistakes
But I haven’t had much reason to drive past benedict drive these days.

So bury me underneath the floor of your living room.
And I’ll stare up at your couch forever where we laid together for the first time.
(Leave me to wonder if you ever got my letter.
Does that make me pathetic?)
Track Name: Early Graves
I remember dancing with you
naked in my dorm room while my roommates were away.
And though my headboard was our headstone
we were happy to dig our early graves.

I still wonder if your father knew
I'd been crying all afternoon.
As he helped me dig my car out of the snow
I almost wish I never made it home.

But you had a secret to keep
and you chose to involve me.
So I'll keep that memory locked away
and pray to god that I lose the key.
