Track Name: (people rushing past each other carrying plastic bags full of christmas presents)
I’ve lost a lot of sleep

Counting too many sheep

Wearing graduation caps

Spent a long time twisting

And cramping and complaining

Trying to stay intact

I’ve been in the sky mostly

And you’ve been there with me

But you were in a plane going east

And I can’t help but feel that the feelings I’m feeling are feelings of Someone released

Because Nothing really matters

When you really think about it

How liberating

Is that

when you really want to die

remember your third eye

that looks inside of the ugliest parts of yourself

turn turn it outwards

so it can see the beauty of the world

turn it outwards so it can see the world

for what it really is

people rushing past each other carrying bags made of plastic

just carrying bags made of plastic

one day we’ll end up in bags made of plastic

well at least that means i’ll leave something a bit more permanent

when i’m gone

when i’m gone

but i guess nothing really matters

and when you really think about it

how liberating

is that
Track Name: book boxing day
i was boxing books on boxing day
you had so many nice things to say
but i couldn't look
because i had my head in about twenty of the same book

and i
want to see you
so i can remember
where we are

and who we are
and who we aren't

i was boxing books on boxing day
but it doesn't matter anyway
(remember?)

you look
so
goddamn cute
in that
monkey
onesie

so FUCKING CUTE I want to DIE

cus i can't see you i can't see you can't get a plane that goes
hi it's nice to meet you
my name is cal i'll be helping you today
please don't call me by my full name
you may think that i'm a dick
for not choosing a name and letting it stick
i've got my reasons i've got my reasons

i was boxing books on boxing day
you had so many nice things to say
but i couldn't look
because the story of our lives
was printed in a book
Track Name: happy new year (everything has to disappear)
scrolling through photos on my phone
my head was spinning and my chair was spinning
the 1st of day of the year and i was alone
and i thought will the end be like the beginning
i was reminded of that scene from amelie
where the man cries after returning from the funeral of his best friend
and he erases his name from his address book
while i touched the universe of names
and read aloud the numbers
and held my finger over the blood red delete button
of all the ones who had gone last year, and all the things that they took

later on in harry's room he put on some abba
and we laughed at the song as they told us to have a
vision now and then of a world where every neighbour is a friend
and i said jesus christ did you ever realise how depressing the lyrics to this song are and he said but it sounds so happy
new year
i hope this one's a good one
somethings's coming i can feel it near
you can count on life to give you things
but they all have to disappear
but i think i know now why
because they wouldn't mean as much otherwise
