Track Name: Climbing
climbing to be seen above the piles of garbage in my room
can you see me?
over this, the things i let pile up
over the thing i built, can you see?

you see me in my room, tied and bound
you see me in my room and pity me now
piles of things around me, nearly falling down
piles of things, only moving them around

climbing to be seen, to be seen and recognized
against all odds
ultra deep in my own thing, but i'm asking you
to look on anyway,
see if you can maintain interest
or if i'll keep you in my place,
in my room,
tied and bound,
falling over
climbing up
tied and bound
it's the way i got you,
and the way i hope to keep you around

i thought about the body after death,
and looking at it or not looking at it
it's hard, but i think it helps
DIY funeral to help you heal
death is real
i was hurt once, it's pretty plain

now i'm hoping to forget, then hoping not to forget
now i'm hoping to forget, then hoping not to
