Track Name: the Other Side/ Steady
Life’s easy to live/ if you’re unaware of your own mortality/ I can’t keep from thinking/ what if this is my last chance/ to breathe this air, to sing that song, to ask you if you love me/ do you love me? / sinking slowly down the bathtub drain/ nothing can wash away this fear but the rain/ I don’t know where we go when we die/ if we even go anywhere or we sleep in endless night/ if there really is an afterlife/ I’ll see you on the Other Side/ even if I get another chance, another life/ I can’t live my life that way/ as if this test won’t affect my grade /but I can’t let this keep me afraid/ forget death, remember my name/ hold me close till my water goes down that drain/ I wanna go holding onto your hand and for once in my life, unafraid/ I don’t know where we go when we die/if we even go anywhere or sleep in endless night/ but if there is an afterlife/ I’ll see you on the Other Side /I’m as steady as a tree/you can try you can’t shake me/ I’m as steady as a tree/you can try/ you can’t shake me
Track Name: Greyhound (week 11)
Silence is eating at my bones/ i know you too well to ignore/ the growing distance and lack of kindness/ the nightmares shaking me to my core/ i'm trying to help/ my words try to have meaning/ but i fail/ and language it fails me/ i could smell death on your breath/ i couldn't pretend i didn't know/ that you've already left/ but your bus/ it leaves tomorrow/ i sink like a stone/ in this vast ocean/ i don't know what to say/ there's no words that comfort/ This hardship that you carry/ this burden you were born with/ i could smell death on your breath/ i couldn't pretend i didn't know/ that you've already left/ but your bus/ it leaves tomorrow/ yesterday you smelled like death/ today i smell your familiar scent/ on my mind/ something is not right/ my bones scream out/ something is wrong and there's no denying it now/ i could smell death on your breath/ i couldn't pretend I didn't know/ that you've already left/ but your bus/ it leaves tomorrow/
Track Name: Solstice (week 12)
I go from summer to winter/ you go from fall to spring/ we still narrowly miss each other/ separated only by the seasons changing/ singing happy birthday/ in the middle of winter/ someone has to break the ice/ that's getting thinner/ the turning of the world/ the turning of the leaves/ decides who turns bitter/ and who kindness greets/ you go from summer to winter/ i go from fall to spring/ we still narrowly miss each other/ separated only by the solstice
