"Album art by Joebob

I wrote these songs between January and May on my laptop microphone with a guitar, q-chord and some shakers.

"Make me listen to myself when I speak."

Thank you to my fans, I wouldn't keep doing this if it wasn't for the support.

Special Thank you Joebob, Amar, Nula and James for being the best, love you guys ❤"

Track Name: Blame Game (Pt.2)
now when I see myself,
I wish that I could
take back what i felt
I was just so hurt and bent to hell
never could get back up when I fell
but now that I am better; doing well
I'll tell the things I just could never tell
just trapped inside of my own burning hell
always stuck in my reclusive shell
Track Name: New Mexico
I'll fall asleep at the window
passenger seat, New Mexico.
I wanna be something I don't know

just wanna breathe, wanna take it slow
and easily. so simple yet so
hard on me, i wont ever let it go
just hard on me i wont ever let it show
Track Name: It's Cool, It's Fine
I guess it's hard to keep track of time
when you're always in the back of my mind
oh no it's cool, no really, it's fine
I'll be alright

I wanna be with you all of the time
me wasting yours; you wasting mine
oh no it's cool, no really, it's fine
we'll be alright

oh feel the breeze, I wanna take it easily
my nails chewed off, a constant cough
my thumbs are always dwindling
Track Name: Tie Dye
Oh I wanna see you in my beat up worn down tie dye
A simple message through the pinhole
"I'll make you whole again, don't worry about it."
don't worry it about it,
I'll tell you all the things I meant to
but everything just fell through
Track Name: Another Backseat
another backseat,
cigarette smoke in my hair, a constant motion everywhere
and you right beside me.
I wanna show you that I care for you, I wanna share
how you remind me,
I have to be more self aware
Track Name: Back Aches
I've grown tired of myself lately
back aches and my mental health make me
feel like I am someone else who hates me
but I know I'm myself I'm just mistaking
my thoughts and my true self when I'm weak
make my listen to myself when I speak
no I can't be anyone else, I can't be
I can't be anyone else, I'm just me
Track Name: Who's to Say
it's all evasive, it's all a dream.
If I'm mistaken then correct me
the life I'm faking and all I see
I feel so shaken up and uneasy

I wanna go home
to you, tonight, today, someway
I'm alright, and I'm okay, and I'm just fine

but who's to say what's really going on?
I can't help but feel like I'm just going along
