Track Name: The Bottom
6 months have passed since you said
I can’t do this anymore
but nothing appears to have changed
Priorities got rearranged
when everything started to feel strange

I think that’s the last of it
I can’t do this anymore
And I’m trying not to assume
but you look like you’ve been marooned
on a one-woman hot air balloon
and you’re headed straight for the moon

Asleep in the grass,
you dream of the ocean floor
Fast falls the eventide
There’s nothing that you haven’t tried
So why don’t you just come inside?
‘Cause you’re never going to decide
Track Name: Opportunity Cost
When you woke up across from what you didn’t want
The things that you forgot, they hit you all at once
Now you can’t shake the thought as you sit and watch the clock
But if you quantified your cost, I think you lost a lot

‘Cause you gave up what you loved for a few lousy bucks
You gave up what you loved until you had enough
and there’s no escaping it now

When you woke up across from what you didn’t want
Your first and second thoughts were where did this go wrong?
But you can’t change the plot as you sit and watch the clock
‘Cause you’re a broken lock, insecure and stuck

‘Cause you gave up what you loved for a few lousy bucks
You gave up what you loved until you had enough
And they’ll never get you ‘cause they won’t admit to themselves
they got lost along the way
