Solo Act 03:29
Now the separation is almost complete Now that all my senses are in full retreat Come and carve me up like a piece of meat Lather, wash, rinse me, then repeat Cue the audience to clap Milk the moment make it last Then fill the silence with a laugh It’s just an encore for my solo Act Now I just sit around waiting for time to elapse Hoping it gets harder to recall the past I've prepared a statement in case you ever ask It was all a warmup for my solo act And I'll be sure to change the names I'll even rearrange some facts So just sit back and relax And get ready for my solo Act

Foolish 03:46
Though I know I shouldn't say this out loud I used to be so optimistic and proud Of my idealistic humanist universe But the day I met you that bubble burst So long farewell to all of my hard won truths I tried to keep them but there was nothing I could do I never knew there were people like you You may be foolish but I'm the fool I was more than just a little bit wrong It’s not like I thought I was some kind of Christ Nonetheless I might have been a little more righteous Thinking I could find a way to love anyone for a little while Maybe just enough to get along for a little while Told myself that I could bring out your best Well I hope this isn’t a trial or a test It’s no defense, but i guess it’s the truth You may be foolish but I’m the fool

Curl my lips into a smile After a while it might even work Tried to keep a journal But it got too personal too quick When you're split right down the middle Just a little wiggle is all it takes If you need me, tap the window I'll be on the fire escape You ask, did I learn my lesson Allow me to reply with a question I don't want to make a mistake Can I just leave it blank? You ask, did I learn my lesson Do I have to answer that question? I don't want to make a mistake So I'll just leave it blank Your room’s got lots of windows But never seems to get much light I want to take a selfie But I guess I’ll have to go outside I keep looking at the clock It hasn't stopped but it's behind And the days get dark so early Hooray for daylight savings time You ask me how I'm feeling Well I know I've heard that word But lately it just sounds absurd And I just draw a blank I guess it's to be expected Sometimes we all get disconnected I try but I can't find the outlet You say I'm close but I'm starting to doubt

Father Time 03:47
Time is a healer But I want to feel Every bruise and every scrape Make no mistake I want to savor every ache Every flavor, every taste Of every single tear to touch my face I hate to see misery go to waste I want to hold onto this grief But time is a thief So patient and methodical A white collar criminal Who slowly steals it all away But takes just a little bit each day Spoiler alert Every day keeps on getting worse Until one day we awake Into a mindless happy state Where all memory’s been erased Hooray hooray hooray You’re an involuntary reflex A nervous tic inside my chest You wanna turn me into a clown Paint a smile over my frown And parade me all around town You’re a forced march and I can't slow you down Time just takes time To conceal and erase To soothe every ache Time to smooth every trace Apply a little charity and grace Oh what a disappointing case

A bitter wind blows Through the autumn morning A cloud is forming Of dead leaves and garbage Discarded propaganda That lands all around my feet As I try to hurry down the street Of shuttered windows and covered siding I’ve decided it’s time To pack my bags and grab my coat The city is no place for the cold And if anyone asks where I’m traveling Just tell them I’m headed up to bad karma cabin Don’t know how long I’ll be here Could be a minute or a year The days are dark but the nights are clear Gonna lay so low I start to disappear A halogen moon rides low in the sky Like a heavy metal iridescent eye Casting a searchlight far and wide Maybe it's a good time to stay inside Cause lately I've been so tired I’m taking medicine past expired And when I wake up I'm so much colder The slumber party’s over And I've never been so sick before I'm Thick with thoughts I can't ignore They swarm me while I try to stay warm Under a blanket that's already unraveling Just another morning out in bad karma cabin
