Citizen - Sleep

Hello everyone. my new song “College” is now out on all digital sites including Spotify, iTunes, GooglePlay, and more! I would love for some of you to listen and show a friend. I have never been so proud of anything in my life. 


“outside
another clouded mind
another clouded sky
but your eyes shock me back to life
you say you don’t know why I’m sad
well I don’t know either
but I know something needs to mend
but my body won’t fix the havoc on my end

I don’t want to go home
but you need some time to grow on your own
I wonder why I can’t feel the same
but I only have myself to blame

and yes there’s days I cry
because my emotional integrity is as weak as the heart in me
when I try to say I’m fine
the future is frightening my fragmented mind
so why do I feel this way?
when all that long for is change
but I’m scared when nothing stays the same

I don’t want to run
I don’t want to hide
but I fear the world outside

will the ink on my body forever mean the same?
does my place inside your heart still pulse when you hear my name?

I don’t want to go home
but you need some time to grow on your own
I wonder why I can’t feel the same
but I only have myself to blame”

Nail In Your Hand

Nail In Your Hand

I complicate you for your fellowship
Manipulate my fix, predetermine your sin
I am your only wish
My baby’s silhouette, she’s growing out of it
I could’ve savored it
Instead, I let it slip
I am your weight
A blessing from a family fugitive
I blame myself, I give my soul for it, I love myself for it
I’ve seen the aftermath of a once honest man
I am a product and you are just here to sell
A sudden spiral into me
You are blooming into disease
Feel the weeks turn into mold
A nail in your hands is the only thing you can believe
You are vast, you’re someone that I envy
Wash your hands until you are clean
Feel my arms around me
Sink my nails into something beautiful
I am immovable, you are disposable
I am impossible
Float in my firmament, the world as I see it
Nothing is certain but I’ve become permanent
