Got everything I wanted Nobody seems to get it They say I’m lucky They’re not wrong I cried for no reason Other than my eyes felt dry Could be the seasons But sometimes I Lie awake think about all of my mistakes Breeze by all the trees Just a bunch of leaves The forest felt forced, so Shake it off or take off.

Hello, are you listening? It’s just my self-esteem that’s asking Is this what I ordered? Don’t know, don’t think so Do you think I Should have gotten a receipt for My dreams Don’t know if this investment’s Returning Plenty of money Time’s a-wasting Still young but a costly future’s Waiting Should have gotten a receipt for My dreams Don’t know if I’ll be Returning

Paying that card, it's not very hard It's playing the part, now that's the art Being green, my hands are not clean It's so easy for me Grocery stores, The ones you can't afford Mirrors high on the shelf But you can't see yourself Being Green (I'm not worth more) My hands are not clean It's so easy (I just eat more) For me It's so easy for me It's so easy It's so easy for me It's so easy being green It's so easy being green

Made my parents sad But I didn’t cry [Catholic Guilt] Now I still feel bad And I don’t know why [Catholic Guilt] Made my parents sad But I didn’t cry I still feel bad And I don’t know why I found it hard to swallow Feelings and years to follow Made my parents sad But I didn’t cry Now I still feel bad And I don’t know why Made my parents sad But I didn’t cry [Catholic Guilt] Now I still feel bad And I don’t know why [Catholic Guilt] Catholic Guilt Catholic Guilt

about

A rational dream consists of aspiring to do little more than to stay up at night with a guitar strumming along to the Beach Boys. During 2017, Rodrigo spent several nights after school learning how to write simple songs in order to process insecurities and feelings of burn-out.
