Track Name: tiny boat
spend my heart on a tiny boat so i could go and spend my time upon the ocean
Track Name: tear in my heart
reasons i can't be torn in half run out halfway down the page
days like this never made much sense anyway
but i'll still be here when you get clean and start making sense (the dagger in my chest hasn't stopped me yet)

you belong to a chemical that you've loved for longer than you've known
i can't sleep with you next to me in case i wake and find you gone, so i put your things in to a box and sent you home
the ache in my chest was heavier than i have ever know

but i'll still be here when you get clean and start making sense
a tear in my heart, i'm in no rush to play that card/hasn't stopped me yet
Track Name: Pi
Take me back from the brink. I've been out in the salt, trying to walk before I could even crawl.

So maybe I learned your name in some fit of desire but if I had a hope it was crushed with the tide.

You came on a plane with a print, all rolled up, taken in '61 in the Carnegie Hall. I see beauty in hearts that are ruptured and faint, so yeah I'm twisting that knife and climbing that rope.

Would you tell me if I had a day left to live? Or with a card on my head, am I a five or a king?

My brother bought me a boat and a compass to tell in which direction to sail, but it just sits on my shelf.
