Track Name: Hot Dogs for Breakfast
I admit to eavesdropping on occasion
I press my ear against the bedroom door and listen for your voice
Just yours

When you leave for work just before noon I don’t go back to bed
Instead, I go downstairs and eat
Hot dogs for breakfast
Track Name: Pick of the Week
My pick of the week just followed me back
Got giddy when I saw it, should I feel bad?
‘Cause I do, yeah I do
It’s no disrespect to you, you, you

They’ve entered my space
Make me nervous in the best way
But I feel bad, I feel bad
Feel like I’m disrespecting you

You know I love ya more than eva
Got my mind on ya
But my eyes on my pick of the week
Who’s lookin good, lookin good

And we’ve discussed this at least once
We’ve both got crushes on our buds
Bae’s tight, but my pick of the week
Is lookin good, lookin good
Track Name: Pump Arp
Pump Arp, missed it
The full chrysalis
Shed, age twenty-two
Summer wasted
Working shitty job
Saving up

Can’t get a week off to go to Pump Arp

Dreamt I was stuck in the chrysalis for ten years
Struggled free
And flew out east
After Becky

I sit complacent for another decade
I sit complacent for another decade

Most of the anxiety
Comes from not knowing
What’s good
What’s bad
What do I do next?
What do I do next?
What do I do next?

I sit complacent for another decade
Then go to Pump Arp
Track Name: Bed
I can change your breathing patterns
You can keep me awake

I’m ready to faint, I’m about to pass out
I can sleep in your arms, I can’t sleep when you’re gone
Stay awake when you leave, stay here with me
I’m ready to faint, I’m about to pass out
I can sleep in your arms, I can’t sleep when you’re gone
Stay awake when you leave, stay here with me

You know who you are
I know who you are
Like the lines of my back scars
Like the crashing of two cars
And the glass from the windows
I could beg from the “oh no’s”
As our breath and the song slows
Oh, I fear that I must go
I fear that I must go
I fear that must go

I know who you are
You know who you are
Track Name: Gym Linkesque
The annoyingly loud drumbeat coming from downstairs through a condenser mic smothers me when I whisper
I’m a quiet talker, but Joel’s a good listener

Sophia texts me, I answer, “I’m good, been busy, busy”
Too busy to call her back!
I’m so so sorry

Don’t Go Where I Can’t Follow is the saddest book I ever read
That’s why it’s my favourite

[repeat]
Track Name: The Instant Ramen-Eating Champion of Your Heart
I’ve got nothing better to do than sit here and watch you sleep
In my dream a little girl knew more about GN than me
I’m wide awake now

Up in Picton I’ve been eating like a student
And missing you like I did when you went on that portaging trip in the summer
But you came home early

I’ve been daydreaming about various things but I’m lucky to be, to be

The Instant Ramen-Eating Champion of Your Heart
Track Name: Warm Day in February
We were reborn in a snowstorm
I played the scene out in my head
Before it happened
I play it back fairly often
It was freezing
I was warm
I was warm

I’ll tell you a secret if you get under this blanket
This is scary but I would never change it
This is scary to think about
I get scared and I wonder how
In the summertime we might rush apart
Today’s been the warmest day so far
Today’s been the warmest day so far
Today’s been the warmest day so far
