Released sometime around February 2015. In a fancy EbMaj7 Tuning I may or may not have made up, along with the other song in this split EP.

This songs about a girl before she moved away


Thought I might find myself buried underneath your skin
Words and nerves don't scare me, just contemporary sin
I spent all night in photographs and stories of your life
I built you up enough to let you break me down inside

She lives on impulse, I envy her
She protects her singular self
I crawl inside my own selfish thoughts
She orients me in the dark

Think I've found my fragile self seems safer by your side
Searched through scattered phrases in an attempt to describe
How I fail to function as a rational human
Yet something about you prevents me from giving in

And why do I cut out the sun
Isolate from anyone
Who shows the slightest interest in my life
And why do I always deny
Push it to the back of my mind
I'll never be comfortable


from Buried​/​Seven Syllable Phrases, released May 27, 2017
