Track Name: New York City is sinking
Fuck what you know fuck what you think
new york city is starting to sink
and i know you may call her home
but you better leave well enough alone

Water's rising up past my knees,
i don't know what's wrong with me
my family keeps begging
but i can't leave
Track Name: September
Why can't you keep
the promises you made to me
to yourself
i wish you'd keep them to yourself

keeping secrets kills the keeper
i tried to get around it
but found it was much deeper
give it up to yourself
give it up to everyone who stayed around
it's tough to stick it out
but don't quit
don't pack it in now
Track Name: Carve our Hearts
We carve our hearts like wheels
so when transitions come
we roll through them without feel
our shape comes from experiences
that we had to heal
don't be afraid
if we're talking to you real
'cause you're real
