Track Name: Top Side
Yeah, I'm old but I'm underrated
And I don't want to overstate it
But I'm more panicked every single day
Yeah, I'm working and I get by
On a diet of alcohol and Facetime
But I miss my friends and the songs we'd play

There's empty tables everywhere
And darkened theatres; I swear
I saw a ghost last night
In my backyard staring
My tremor's getting worse somehow
I can't help remembering how down
I felt 8 years ago and
Maybe it's worse now

I write songs but no one hears me
I'm fucking sad, don't say I'm lazy
And it just keeps getting worse each day
We're all here hoping it gets better
Trying to get to now from never
And I just can't bring myself to say
I'm ok

That I'm ok
That you're ok
That I'm ok
That we're ok

We can make it top side
We can crawl out of this mess we"re in
I can make it top side
I can climb out, I'll be whole again
Track Name: Almost Human
I've been waiting so long
For the truth to hit me
I've been carrying on
Like there's nothing left in me
I've been sitting along
With the answer right in front of me

I'm not my biggest fan
Is it obvious
But I'm sure I'd give me a hand
For being so damn gracious
It's not too late
To be someone great

So this is what it's like
To be in the background smiling
At all the moments that died
When everyone keeps piling on
I guess it's all the same
Pronouns are just words anyway
Is this the place where I get to say
I'm myself now

So try, try to push it all by
Try, try, don't plan out your whole life
There's other things to think about
Than what others think you think about
So try, try again
And start to begin

We're all just almost human
We're all just almost human
We're all flying too close to the sun

So take me as I am
Take anything you want from me
I'm moving up and moving on
And I won't let anyone try to stop me
I'm the girl I want to be
As the same as I was 23
And I'm try, trying

So try, try to push it all by
Try, try, don't plan out your whole life
There's other things to think about
Than what others think you think about
So try, try again
And start to begin
