about

This album was written over the course of the past two years while I lived in a row home in Philly. Plainview has been an outlet for me. I hope you enjoy these songs and connect with them. If not, that's okay thanks for listening!

Track Name: Let's Fight In The Dark
I really don’t feel well and
I really can’t tell
If its cause I’m sick or
cause I haven’t heard from you in a bit

I’ve been staying up late and
I know you can relate
As you smile at your phone
At something stupid I said again, no

You can’t ignore your beating heart
I know it’s fighting with your head in the dark again
You can’t ignore me anymore
Take a lap around my room what are you fighting for

I don’t know why I put my phone back in my pocket
When I know you’ll answer before it gets there
The amount of screenshots I have is unhealthy
Just about as unhealthy as the number of minutes I spend with you
Contemplating the strength of the things that I am feeling towards you, towards you

You can’t ignore your beating heart
I know it’s fighting with your head in the dark again
You can’t ignore me anymore
Take a lap around my room what are you fighting for

Your balance is impeccable as you walk the line between
Where we are and what it is that I’m hoping for
Your balance is impeccable; it is impeccable

Next week I think a gentle breeze
Will push you over onto me
At least that’s where I think you wanna be
Track Name: Undertones
I’m always drunk on something
Whether its your cryptic words
That I twist and turn
Or my seventh beer I’ll never learn

In my head I’m picking apart
The meaning of everything that you’re saying
Til I pass out at three in the morning
In front of the dim light my phone is burning

Don’t worry about me
I’ll be okay probably
I know you worry about me
I hope you see what I see

Bottle up your thoughts and feelings
It’s not worth your time or effort
We’re sick of seeing you always getting hurt

But what if she doesn’t know
She’s gotta figure it out on her own
So hopefully it’s clear in my undertones

Don’t worry about me
I’ll be okay probably
I know you worry about me
I hope you see what I see
Track Name: I'm Okay
I’m stuck inside my heavy round head
Imagining everything that can go wrong
It doesn’t make any sense to me
Or to anyone else that I see

Get out of your head
It’s really okay
Despite what you said
It’s just another day

Hold her hand, she’ll keep you safe
You’ve found the girl, she’s here to stay
Just relax and breathe it will be alright
You’re happy and healthy, you’re not gonna die today

Get out of your head
It’s really okay
Despite what you said
It’s just another day

Everyday brings new fears
With difficult solutions I have to make clear
To continue on building towards a somewhat perfect life
Pursuing my love and happiness til I reach the light
Track Name: Cell Phone
The thoughts you have when you’re about to cry
Are the truest thoughts you’ll have in your life
They’re never seen or heard
Cause you can’t muster the strength to say anything other than yes or no
And by the time you go to write them down
They are long forgotten

A quivering lip is hard to fight
You lose control your feelings they take flight
You reach out for someone to hold
But you’re yelling, you’re yelling at your phone
And it’s far too small
Track Name: Hole In The Floor
Where do we go when we die?
I wasn’t sure but I had a feeling why
You were afraid in your head last night
Think things through one day you’ll get it right

I don’t wanna leave without you
I can’t change the course of time
I don’t wanna live without you
I can’t pretend that this is alright
Track Name: Intuition
Every morning when I set foot out the door
I leave footprints in the snow, size thirteen and a half to be exact
But why can’t that be all I step on today
Rather than someone’s heart causing pain that won’t go away

But that’s not how life works, we’re all reckless people
With our poison tipped arrows firing left and right no sign of warning
We don’t care about anyone, no wait we care too much
We try to protect one another but just end up leaving scars

I need to find some intuition
To deal with this goddamn situation
I fall too hard like a tree in the forest
No one’s there to hear me, no cries of protest

I try to turn it off, try to power down
But I’m not a robot I can’t find the switch
My feelings they can’t help it, no they come and they go
I’m head over heels by day three, a gentle giant amongst mortals no one's there beside me

I need to find some intuition
To deal with this goddamn situation
I fall too hard like a tree in the forest
No one’s there to hear me, no cries of protest

Sitting on the back porch staring at the tree line
Watching those fireflies pass by my eyes
The sun’s going down and its time for bed
But I can’t sleep, I don’t wanna sleep

For the past three nights I wore my socks to bed
But my feet were too cold from the thoughts in my head
Throwing rocks at the walls of this cold basement
I just can’t sleep on an air mattress again

I thought this whiskey would keep me warm
But the sun came up and I still felt bored
Eating peanut shells til I felt sick
I just can’t sleep on an air mattress again

I don’t wanna sleep
Track Name: Admission
What are you doing here
It’s really too late for this
Is there someone you can call
To pick you up

I don’t know about you
But my mom says I can call anytime I need
Day or night, rain or shine
Anytime I need

It’s time for you
To get to bed
Get some help
To rest your head

I’m not enough
To get you through
We need someone
To help you

Don’t be ashamed
You’re not to blame
Life’s a sick and twisted game
Please don’t cry
I’m not trying to criticize

The first step’s admitting
Then we get to the quitting
One step at a time
That’s the first smile
I’ve seen from you in awhile
Now it matches mine

It’s time for you
To get to bed
Get some help
To rest your head

I’m not enough
To get you through
We need someone
To help you

I’ll see you through
Til the end
Til both of us
Can rest our heads

Without a worry
Or sense of doubt
That tomorrow we’ll be
Proud
Track Name: Five Foot Four
She said, “I like feeling small
I’m average height
But wrapped up with you
I feel so small”

I think I’m falling in love with you
But it’s to early to say
I know I’ve fallen in love with you
Why can’t I fuckin’ say

You’re all I want and more
I just wanna shut that door
Roll around, roll around
On the floor with you

You’re all I want and more
This is what I was fighting for
I haven’t slept all night
And neither have you

We were in the cramped back seat
With your brother in the pouring rain
Hungry cause we hadn’t eaten since breakfast
Your parents fucking going at it
With the most ridiculous things
My face hurt from smiling
Is what she said to me

You’re all I want and more
I just wanna shut that door
Roll around, roll around
On the floor with you

You’re all I want and more
This is what I was fighting for
I haven’t slept all night
And neither have you

Sometimes I feel like shit
But now I feel that less
You’re there to break the fall
Every single time

Regardless of the situations
We find ourselves in
You’re always there to break
The fall

You’re all I want and more
I just wanna shut that door
Roll around, roll around
On the floor with you

You’re all I want and more
This is what I was fighting for
I haven’t slept all night
And neither have you
Track Name: Hypocrisy
Organized and so chaotic a seemingly perfect contradiction
Learning different words in order to spice up conversation
It may be exciting, but be careful to avoid the fiction
Hypocrisy so fitting you’ve won a medal, congratulations

I am done with you
So get out of my room
We are not friends
Why do we pretend

False interactions are sickening
You get up and walk away
I talk shit and feel bad for it
But what else can I say

You’re not worth my time
Track Name: I Won You Something
I heard you laughing or crying
Frankly I can’t tell the difference anymore
I hate to feel like the bad guy in this
Twisted story with pages falling out left and right

Tell me what I can do
Cause all I want is to find the resolution you’ve been looking for
I feel like I’m useless
A map missing its legend or any sense of direction

I’ve never been good with words
I just like to keep it simple and stick to what I know
I am sorry for the pain and stress I cause
I don’t mean you any harm

When will all be right
And we can sit together and laugh at all of this
Cause laughter is the best medicine
And honest to god I’m out of suggestions

When will I feel okay
You don’t even see me
I am uneasy, feeling queasy
Its time to go with my gut feeling

We trudge along
Saying few words
Leaving open space
Confusing things

Where do I stand in your eyes
I don’t wanna disappear from your life that’s
Not what you want
At least I know that much

When will I feel okay
You don’t even see me
I am uneasy, feeling queasy
Its time to go with my gut feeling

What have I done
I can’t help but feel like
I fucked this up
What have I done, what have I done

What have you done
I can’t help but feel like
You fucked this up
What have you done, what have you done

What have we done
What have we done
