Track Name: While My Body Rots
someday my heart will stop
I'll lay down underground inside a box
all alone with my thoughts
the fights I fought, the loves I lost
the things I regret worming their way out
while my body rots

maybe I'm poor from playing these towns
maybe I'm sore from sleep on the ground
maybe there's more than making these sounds
but one things for sure
I won't let this world drag me down

too late now to scratch out
decisions I'm itching to recount
before my soul went south
no more dreams, feed the trees
all that remain are names and memories
and this shell of me
Track Name: Alone Is Where I'm Headed
these old chords been around for centuries
but they still find ways to speak to me

times are tough tighten up gotta save money
what's the point? all my coins are unlucky
here I am spending every last penny
singing songs all about 'poor me'

if home is where the heart is
alone is where I'm headed
I know what I'm missing
but I can't switch direction

I'm a joke and this joke is getting old
never thought death could be so comical
I don't know where I'll be ten years from now
more to life than planning it out

no one understands how living in a van could be more than
a punchline on a Saturday Night Live
