Track Name: Irvine problem
Flight booked overseas as your message waits for me
Now time has gone; you'll receive no response from me
Waiting patiently, as I was wont to do
Drowning hopefully - that my words will return to you

Now you're all alone as I travel far from home
Memories rattle in your bones that I'd rather leave alone
New pasts and new futures wait behind closed doors
Old pasts and old futures wait for me behind yours

Now I'm all alone as I travel far from home
Memories rattle in my bones that I wished you'd left alone
New pasts and new futures wait behind closed doors
Old pasts and old futures wait for me behind yours

Drowning hopefully, again
Track Name: Tempe solution
I awake slamming foot to brake; same damn nightmare, same damn mistakes
If the stress doesn't take me it will certainly break me as I stare at the screen and inspiration forsakes me
Wishing it could burn out my eyes like the sun so I could put down this book and at last be done
But I'd probably just buy a fancy new pair and throw myself back into this pointless despair

I've turned to see myself but I don't see my self
I've improved myself but haven't improved my self
I'm exhausted myself and I've exhausted my self
I'm lost myself and I've lost my self

And here's my reward for a lifetime of study; a plate full of misery served with a side of humility
It would taste just fine if I could take it to-go because meals only make sense when enjoyed alone
I hate this office almost blindly at night as sleep and fatigue literally cloud my sight
But at least I know just what I want, this is exactly what I want

I've turned to see myself but I don't see my self
I've improved myself but haven't improved my self
I'm exhausted myself and I've exhausted my self
I'm lost myself and I've lost my self
