Track Name: Manic Miracle
Do you see pictures instead of words
do you create dreams in the day time
that look like the mountains you wished that you lived in.
Do you think of grandiose plans
that sometimes only become the fiction
of the silver raindrops in your window
of your chilly apartment

if anyone gives you a diagnosis
just tell them.

You're not manic
You're a miracle

Sometimes medicines can make you feel better
but sometimes they make you cloudy when you should
be running in raindrops
Instead you're stuck inside
it's okay to jump in puddles
it's okay to avoid them

if someone tells you otherwise
just tell them.

You're not manic
You're a miracle.

***

wear your crazy like you wear your poncho
let it cover you when you feel cold
let it free you when you're feeling bold.

***

You're not manic
You're a miracle.
Track Name: Requiem of my breathing
Stay behind the window
I have told you all my secrets
you can take them
or leave them in the shadows
you appear in violent hiding places
I keep you locked in the daytime
but when I let my guard down you are there
standing in the corner of my dreams

---

But my silence only effects me
you don't feel my energy
I am nothing
but you are the requiem of my breathing.

---

The vivid slivers of your hair
remind me I keep trying
to bury them in the safety of my body
They keep clawing at my sanctuary.
You never knew what I looked like when
I'm trying to be honest
You ask me the questions I can't answer.
(There's no wrong questions just wrong way to ask them)

---

But my silence only effects me
you don't feel my energy
I am nothing
but you are the requiem of my breathing.
Track Name: Imaginary
Would you look inside my cells
would you find stories of self
what makes me human
What gives me consciousness
where does the distance between our novels being
where does the space time continuum end.

---

Am I holding different dimensions
when you look at me do you see them?
are you a mirror of a mirage
on planes of existence
do you even think about why you are here.

---


I am alive
it says so in my mind
I am an atom evolved over time.

---

Do you trust in what you see
Do you trust in what you believe
Do you trust in faith
Do you trust the cosmos will save you from your own mortality
are we nobody
are we still breathing
is your heart beat a fragment of the IMAGINARY…

---

I am alive
it says so in my mind
I am an atom evolved over time.
Track Name: Yay for my Faerie Friends
I just want to know the lyrics
to your favorite song so I can sing them
when you feel lonely
I just want to know the words
to your favorite stories so I can read them
when you can't sleep
you see I want to take the
color of your horizons
and make a painting you can keep.
For you and me.

I don't want a commitment
I just want an adventure
that will make happy pictures
in your memories
I want to call you every moment
and ask you what you are thinking
but I don't want you to think that I am creepy
I just like to listen to everything that you say
'cause it's funny and it's serious
and I like the way that your eyes move all about
and your face is really cute when you are
wondering about my theories.

I just want to know the lyrics
to your favorite song so I can sing them
when you feel lonely
I just want to know the words
to your favorite stories so I can read them
when you can't sleep
you see I want to take the
color of your horizons
and make a painting you can keep.
For you and me.

(lalala) - the faeries dancing in the snowy woods.

I just want to write a song about the size of our hands
and the way that they could fit so perfectly on the scale of my strings
when I hear you sing I think we could be something
that goes running in the forest
like faeries in the pages of a picture book
you once showed me
One time...

I just want to know the lyrics
to your favorite song so I can sing them
when you feel lonely
I just want to know the words
to your favorite stories so I can read them
when you can't sleep
you see I want to take the
color of your horizons
and make a painting you can keep.
For you and me.
Track Name: My favorite Color
Everything is fine the way things should be: Pretty.
I like to tell myself that you are happy in my ignorance
I can blissfully think that their is no pain
and everyone can breathe like they are human,
and everyone can believe that they are magic.
And, you and I erased the places in our stories
that make us feel like we aren't perfect.
I want to forget that we aren't perfect.

For all the ways you created the monsters inside my heart I
know that I will vanquish the demons that come crawling in my head
you don't need to see my body to know that I am alive
you've always known you paint the world my
favorite color.

The color of our veins when oxygen meets our insides
the color of our happiness
the color we're alive
through every moment you have disappeared
I still write songs for things that I feel
I still write songs that you inspired
the home my poet was born
you built this house that is my refuge.
You are my refuge.

For all the ways you created the monsters inside my heart I
know that I will vanquish the demons that come crawling in my head
you don't need to see my body to know that I am alive
you've always known you paint the world my
favorite color.
