Track Name: Captain Nemo
20,000 leagues between you and me,
and I don't expect it to get any closer than this

I've been to the deep end and back,
and I don't expect you to follow me anytime soon

I shot the captain in the back of the head,
and maybe one day you can save me from sailing alone.
Track Name: Nauseous
Restless nights are getting common
As scented pillow tops flip me chapters back
If you knew, oh God if you knew
I'd probably be thrown out

I'm getting nauseous in the dark
as my phone lights up my room
and my eyes asphyxiate themselves on a song you once wrote me
but these sheets are getting heavy
while my arms are getting weak
but my blankets getting heavier
and I can't cover my eyes

As I lay here dreaming I strongly wish I opened my ears and breathed
the things you did
not just the words you said
I realized you're not in the back of my eyes
and I realize now you are the air that I breathed
I need oxygen, lacking oxygen

One day I starred at my sweaty palms
and I noticed your empty hand
I thought I gathered the courage to ask you to sing one more song
but instead I found the strength to pull up my blankets one more time
I closed my eyes, I finally closed my eyes

Restless nights are getting common
Why is it that I always get picked last?

I finally found the strength to pull these sheets over my head
I closed my eyes, I finally closed my eyes.
Track Name: Floating
Why is it, no matter what I say, no matter what I do , I feel sorry?
To all your family and you friends,
To all my family and my friend
I promise I'm searching, I'm still searching,

For that silver lining you once read to me.
For that small light in the break of the clouds
So I'm back in the water
Moonlit currents and floods.

I'm so sick and tired of the same old songs
I am floating at the bottom of the ocean
I can only get better,
things can only get better.

I am opening your books again.
I am opening my lungs again,
As I surface from the broken glass
I promise, I swear, I'm still trying.
