Track Name: On
i feel stupid with my name tag on
i do more damage when i'm at home
it's a beautiful way to spend your day
and spend each night putting more weight on

thin skin with impossible bones
more will power than i could hope
it's a pitiful end to being your friend
to spend all night with a phone light on

but look and emerald now she's ok
because she's far away from here
(by design)

i can't think of another word
for the feeling that holds me down
and i'm stuck to the floor when my eyes are sore
i'll spend my life with a brave face on

but look and emerald now she's ok
because she's far away from here

couldn't stop my mind from wandering
into your mind, you left open
same tin paint box every night
and that's not right
that's not right
but it's better than none at all
