I've been writing a lot lately 
Nothing's been coming out
So what's been fine since I've not been fine
I know you have a mountain that I can't climb
I've been trying to mine mine
Maybe if you could look through the lines
You could understand I'm not lying anymore

How long until Suffocation becomes a pill
I know I'm dramatic all the time
I'm mellowing out like a fine wine

I bet you never truly forget about me
I bet y...

So just keep breathing and try to love yourself
If the sky is falling then you run chicken little
the whole world's going to keep moving
If you stand still it's going to leave you...

Going Back Home

I'll be going back to Washington soon 
I think it's time to go home
I've been gone for four years 
I wonder how things have changed
Dad always tells me that the country's died since I left
That I'm lucky that my mom was born in Romania
My plan was to go back last year 
It's time to face the things I can't face
Time to face the broken Healthcare System
I also have time to go see the mounta...
