Track Name: The Joke
We were playing spin the bottle
I got Steven’s older brother
He turned me down – I looked like a fool
He said I wasn’t pretty
Spun again and kissed Eleni
I grew up and now I make the boys drool

Chorus:
Woo hoo hoo
Now the joke’s on you
Woo hoo hoo
Yea the joke’s on you

I took a big chance
And asked Adam to the dance
I thought maybe he would finally go
He said “you’re not smart
You got a ‘B’ in Modern Art”
Now I’m a doctor and he won’t even know

Were your impressions of me wrong?
Yes they were
That’s why I wrote this song
And now you want to sing along

‘Cause I’m big and I’m popular
Singing hipster opera
You doubted me but now I’m so cool
You’re surprised and you know it
And it’s okay if you show it
‘Cause people love me – now you’re loving me too
Track Name: From the Heart
Homesick
Now I feel so stupid
After just three days
Three days of camp
The real issues
Are these distractions that I choose
They don’t help me not miss you
I don’t need an excuse

Chorus:
Oh it didn’t take long to come apart
But babe, I’m sending you letters
Straight from the heart
And singing…
I don’t ever want to be this far

When I’m at school
Feeling distracted and unsure
‘Cause all the things that I’m learning
Don’t get me closer to you
The long distance
Breaks my focus on business
My brain is always resistant
You are my tethered balloon

At work all day, boy
I want to laugh and play, boy
But I’m locked away
In this cubicle room
Well honey
If we had lots of money
We could relax, it’d be lovely
I’d never leave you
Track Name: Static of Love
Take me home, let’s talk
I’ve got a million things I never could say
Cut the motor off
So I can hear…the static of love

I don’t know when we lost
Maybe years ago when I was still great
Whole and kind and soft
But I can’t live with all…the static of love

Haunted by the sounds of wanting
In between my breathing
Lies a melody
Fast asleep
If only we were done telling stories
Of love and blame and phonies
Well, here’s the remedy
It’s in me

Hurt me, curse my name
You have a million things you never could say
Push me and i’m ashamed
I can’t handle all…the static of love

Haunted by the sounds of wanting
In between my breathing
Lies a melody
Fast asleep
If only we were done telling stories
Of love and blame and phonies
Well, here’s the remedy
It’s in me

So take me home, let’s talk
I’ve got a million things I have to say
Cut the motor off
I can hear…the static of love
Track Name: Certainly
Why do I fall so hard for you?
When all that I want is overdue
Oh yes certainly
I could live so easily
Why do birds up in the sky
Flap their wings when they could glide
Oh yes certainly
They could live so easily
We can talk about and dream about possibilities
Or we can run around, and turn around
Now you’re killing me

Call it here, regret the sound
I’m soaring now but I can hit the ground
Oh yes certainly
I can fall so easily
A butterfly with fragile wings
Disintegrates with ending flings
Oh yes certainly
I am hurt so easily
We tear about and worry about our activities
Or we can run around, and turn around
Now you’re killing me

So draw heartache a plan
‘Cause it comes with romance
You can’t win if you don’t take the chance

Yea better days, I’ve seen them more
My aching bones I must implore
Oh yes certainly
I can heal so easily
Find comfort in another friend
Insensitive, but I’ll pretend
Oh yes certainly
I’ll move on easily
We learn about and yearn about our insecurities
Or we can run around, and turn around
Now you’re killing me

So draw heartache a plan
‘Cause it comes with romance
You can’t win if you don’t take the chance
You can’t win if you don’t take the chance
Track Name: With You
Baby tell me what you want
While I have you here
But don’t break my heart
And then disappear
I want to walk with you
To all the shady spots
We’ll keep the mystery
Yeah, ‘cause it’s what we’ve got

Chorus:
I’ll take this plane across the water
With you, with you
I’ll have a son, I’ll have a daughter
With you, with you
I’ll fall in love because I oughta
Not ‘cause you told me to

Baby tell me what you need
And I’ll sew it up
I’ll use the copper wire
It’s everlasting tough
Though all these twists and turns
Create a life for us
You’ll never break my heart
Because it’s safe and rough

Baby take a chance on us
I’ve got the things you need
Wherever we will land
I’ve got the maps and sheets
You point the way to your heart
I tell ya, I believe
You point the way and I’ll start
To be the perfect me
Track Name: Chemical
Lover lover won’t you spill the truth
‘Cause I need nothing more than me and you
Out of the rain in this telephone booth
Could call it fate if you wanted to
Or stargazing in the middle of the night
Got a curfew, gonna break it, cause I need more time, with you
I know you’re better when I’m here
I’m only better when you’re near
So baby tell me if you want to

Chorus:
Stay out late and listen to the radio
With jeans on lace
We’ll take our love like a chemical

Kansas City in early March
We take a walk after dinner now it’s getting dark
Your face lit up like modern art
From the lights of Tower Park
Stargazing in the middle of the street
It’s late, I don’t care, ‘cause I need to be, with you
I know you’re better when I’m here
I’m only better when you’re near
So baby tell me if you want to

Here we go

Lover lover won’t you draw the shades
We’re closing out on yet another nearly perfect day
I’ll spend the night if there’s no other way
To be together, yeah, I’ll take the blame
Stargazing from your bedroom
I’m never wrong when I’m here with you, I know
I know you’re better when I’m here
I’m only better when you’re near
So baby tell me if you want to
Track Name: I Wish You Were Here (To Help Me Kill These Zombies)
We boarded up the farmhouse
When we ended up in Kansas
After sickness spread across the frontier
We were running out of resources
And running out of options
You said “I’ll go and find some water, stay here”
As you grabbed the .30-30 with the 17 rounds
We opened the front door and you ran
Then we slammed the door and locked it
Nailed the boards back into place
That was the plan

Chorus:
I wish you were here
To help me kill these zombies
But you disappeared
Now you’re probably the undead
And if you were here
Then I wouldn’t be so lonely
But you’re probably out there
Craving the brains left in my head
Still, I wish you were here

All the dead reanimated
Bang upon these walls and windows
I can never seem to get that much sleep
But when I do I dream you’re out there
Fighting hard so you can save us
And I believe…
Until I wake up every morning
To the moaning and the scratching
‘Cause they never stop and never sleep
So my baby if you’re out there
And you’re still a basic human
Come back, please

A week we’re out of food, and now we just ran out of water
I’m so tired I can barely stand
In the distance we hear shouting and some automatic weapons
Again and again and again and again
We take the boards off of the windows
Passing out the guns
And loading the last of our ammunition
The zombies, so confused,
Get cut down in cross fire
Humans win!
Track Name: Solid Gold
Home, we curl up and watch TV
While we’re all tangled up in sheets
Where every laugh belongs to me
Look, I’ll be right here when you get old
And turn the channel to your episode
Our Thursday nights are solid gold

Chorus:
It’s like I’ve loved you from the moment I could talk about it
Babe, you make me dance and smile and shout out loud
I won’t give up
‘Cause now we’re stuck
In this perfect kind of love

Great, we spend our Sunday afternoons
At the lake and it’s all brand new
Drinking whiskey, whistling tunes
Grass under our feet it starts to grow
Yea we don’t care ‘cause it’s time to go
When the evening wind it blows

Take me in your loving arms and
Tell me everything is so right
Yea yea honey I know it oh so well
Look, I’ll be right here when we get old
To keep your body from the cold
You’re more to me than solid gold
Track Name: Alcohol
Yea alcohol dulls the pain
So here I am, alone again
In my underwear, empty bottle in my hand
When everything works the same
Whether whiskey, gin or beer remains
I hope to God, I can tell you where I stand

Chorus:
Based on me
You plan retreat
‘Cause you never trusted this love
I feel 17
With all these – insecurities
Yea, it can’t be me you think of…(who do you think of?)

When alcohol does the trick
Your relaxing blur and resulting sick
Take me through the ride that I deserve
It helps me to get over it
From jeans to lies – they don’t fit
And when every choice I make is just absurd

The scars are formed and they remain
These shallow craters filled with pain
In my corner with a bottle to my lips
I’ve lost the things that I had gained
And replaced them with pathetic blame
I hit the floor, and the bottle slips
Track Name: Burning Up
Don’t be telling Tony
That you’re lonely
It’s not you
Or take pills that make you phony
You’ll need to show me
That isn’t true

Chorus:
You pull it right, right down on me
You’re getting high on LSD
You don’t seem fine, that isn’t free
You’re crashing soon
You crawl right in, into my head
I’m burning up in your bed
Covered in sweat, I’m turning red
Constantly

Don’t you cut my lifeline
Or sever all ties
I’ve made with you
I break up this ugly pipeline
Just to buy time
And feed you food

Lies…
You’re telling me lies
Where did you go?
How do I know?
That these lies
Are only white lies
If you say so…
How do you know?

Baby break this habit
There I’ve said it
It’s just not you
How can I understand it
Or give you credit
When you’re a fool?

Don’t say that you’re lonely
Baby show me
That isn’t true
Track Name: Medicine
You tell me that I’m out of touch
And I don’t have a second for you
You take my daddy’s medicine
Get high and then we race to the loft
Come a little closer, little closer
Baby come back
But my heart can’t handle that

You cut me with an attitude
It tells me that you have it in for me
You’re dirty and you know it
But it won’t ever come out in the wash
You offer little love, ’cause it’s love
That we lack
But my heart can’t handle that

Look, it’s alright
Some things you just can’t fight

I knew that you were out of touch
I didn’t have a second for you
I’ll take down all the medicine
To push out the regret and the loss
If I get a little closer, little closer
Then you’ll come back
But my heart can’t handle that
Yea my heart can’t handle that
Track Name: Violets
We get along pretty well, boy
But it’s harder to tell
If you want me
If you want me for keeps
I’ve been trying to stay quiet
But I’m starting to yell
That you’ve been mine now
You’ve been mine now for weeks

Chorus:
Is this love? Is this love?
Is this love?
Is this love? Is this love?
Is this love?
This is love.

There are just some things about you
That I’m dying to know
Like do you whisper my first name when you sleep?
And when we listen to The Beatles on the radio
Do you sing
Do you sing in harmony? mm

I’ve been waiting most of my life
For someone to finally get this right
Someone who can decide
So come, come and take me from this place
And bring me violets in a vase
oooo
oooo
This is love

There’s a bird outside the window
I think he’s singing for us
We should give him, we should give him a name
So we lay here picture perfect
Slightly covered with dust
Every morning
Every morning’s the same
Track Name: Villains Before Lovers
Monday I begin the work
On building a doomsday machine
Tuesday we collaborate
On what the targets should be

Chorus:
You brush my hair
Then I push you down the stairs
Singing – do do do do
Do do do do
We’re villains before lovers, so there

Wednesday we’ll devise a plot
to ransom half of the world
Thursday night you tell me that
You’re not that kind of girl

Friday night I could take you out to dinner at Wendy’s
Saturday we watch Message in a Bottle and cry – ooo

Sunday around 3pm I shop for
Weapons grade plutonium
You cut rectangles of plastic explosives
Shaped like packs of gum
Track Name: Pulse
Everybody out there
With a pulse
Won’t you shout my name
Say Brandy Brandy, Brandy, Brandy, Brandy
Won’t you entertain
Well, even I have to eat
Have to sleep
Have to clean
But post me, love me, hug me
Sell me, quote me, get me all the same

Everything I say is so darn brilliant
Yea, it’s quite assuming
When I look down down down on you
I find it quite amusing
I’m really not this way
It’s clear my genius my be lacking in sleep
So when she’s tired, she’s on fire
She’s a beast
Yea she’s hard to beat

The sun goes down
I start another day
With my place among the stars
Loved by all in charge
Lights come up
I know just what to say
To make you laugh and dance in malls
And play my music in your cars

Everybody out there
With a pulse
Won’t you shout my name
Say Brandy Brandy, Brandy, Brandy, Brandy
Won’t you entertain
Track Name: No
To stay alive I’ve multiplied
These motives into lies
I hide the truth from me and you
It seems so justified

Chorus:
No, no, no

We’ve gone too far, the new wore off
Dulling all my sharper sides
With bad advice, we criticize
And are left with silent pride

We’re not meant to self-destruct our lives
And I’m not gonna wade…
Through these moments of daft confusion
Just to bend and then break

Please understand you’re not the man
I crave when I’m alone
And I’m not the girl, you want, I’m sure
I’m not your sense of home

Say you’ll always love me, ok?
‘Cause when you play these games
I never know what to say
Yeah yeah yeah I know you do what you do
But when you look my way
I keep falling for you

Chorus:
Don’t you tell me that you’ve changed your mind
I won’t be impressed
‘Cause boy, I’m the best that you’ll ever find
So, here’s your test

Paint me in your picture of love
Use all these cool new brushes
But don’t forget to clean up
No no no – don’t really want you to change
But we can fix your life
As best as can be arranged

Now we’ve been texting out thoughts for so long
Think it’s time we had a face-to-face
You claim you’re weak
But I know that you’re strong
In this place…at my place

Here, here is the essence of me
If you don’t know what to know
Here are some words to believe
Take my hand, judge all your previous ways
And baby understand that love is love when it stays
Track Name: Human
Head to toe
I’m covered in shame
Just so you know
I’ve started to blame
All the fools gold
That I have obtained
From this freak show
‘Cause I’m not the same
Girl that you loved
I sold out that chance
To be human
And now this romance
Is a new one
The last second chance
of its kind

Chorus:
Bury my bones
In the salt of the earth
That’s a weight I’ll accept
So don’t you carry it
And fill up my lungs
With money and dirt
It’s designed and deserved
You can be quite sure of it

Compromise
That’s all I have done
For the high price
Of telling everyone
That I’m uptight
When they ramp up the fun
I have advice
‘Cause I’m not the one
Girl that you knew
When God made the rules
He ignored you
And told me the truth
His supreme view
That my life is one of a kind

So bury my bones
Go on
They’re simple and cold
Go on
We’re all doing what we’re told

An ocean
Of regret and belief
Has me floating
With the current underneath
Giving motion
To all of my needs
At this moment
You suspend disbelief
And feel shell shocked
Hearing what I’ve done
It’s all I’ve got
It’s second to none
Such a sure shot
I might be the last of my kind
Track Name: Your Song
We were those kids that ran away
All full of thoughts just north of proper
Who ended 7 miles from home
It got dark as we paraded
Down the street
And though the woods on our own
We made a pact and then we wrote a list
We held hands and then we shared a kiss
Then we promised that we’d never
Let the other face it all alone…but

Chorus:
If you keep ignoring me
And you start avoiding me
Then I’ll know that something went wrong
That’s when I’ll write this stupid parody
Some chords and simple melody
So you can sing along
It’s your song
ahh oooo
Here is where you sing along
ahh oooo
‘Cause it’s your song

We went to college in the summer
Far away in different cities
Said you’d call, I said I’d try to write
I started learning and then meeting some boys
It didn’t seem just right
I’ll keep our pact, I memorized the list
And I’ll remember how I need your kiss
But I can’t seem to get ahold
Of you baby tonight…so

We made a promise that we’d make a home
And that we’d carry on

I have my job in New York
And now you live in California
Haven’t spoken since we were 19
I hear you’re doing real well
But I wonder if you think of me
Our pact is what I have always missed
Sealed with love, sealed with a kiss
The promise when we ran away
Torn up like this paper list…’cause
Track Name: Peach Pie
This is for the catholic girls
Who grew up right
You peel away a single surface
Call it appetite
Then what we’ll find is simple simple
Rather primal, rather wrinkled
But it lasts, and then it bites
Like the malaria mosquito

Maybe this is for the boys
With their insidious commands
Yea all that genuflecting weighing on
Their life skills pants
But we didn’t dare receive them
For fear we would deceive them
Now I think they’ll make it out
But we wouldn’t want to be them, right?

Chorus:
Cover my body in napalm baby
Burn, let it burn ’till we all go crazy
Before. We. Will be like the boys
We’d rather be soft, rather be delicious
We’re always peach pie, always smile, never vicious
Until. We. Like the boys

This is for you college girls
Who think you’re smart
Your operations are all doomed
Examinations after dark
Yea what they tell us is so simple
Rather primal, rather wrinkled
Takes precision of the thinker
Hearing classics on a harp

But we harpoon the first boy
Who tickles fancy and delight
We know, we know, we know better
What we know we don’t cite
‘Cause when that clock strikes the 10
You’ll bet I’ll get my wish
We can be friends ’til then
After that, you’ll call me a…

This is for the girls
This is for the girls
This is for the girls
But I kinda like boys
Yea, this is for the girls
This is for the girls
This is for the girls
When we treat them like toys
See, this is how it feels
This is how it feels
This is how it feels
Something you can’t avoid
Yea, this is how it feels
This is how it feels
This is how it feels
When I don’t get my choice
Track Name: Do Ya Wanna?
Getcha getcha can can
Wontya understand man
Do ya do ya wanna wanna
Can you be my lover

Move into my basement
Wear the glowing bracelet
Hella hella yea boy
We wrestle to discover

Stay a fella ten ten
Wake up in my bed bed
Do ya do ya wanna wanna
Could you pay attention

Kiss me on my forehead
Now you heard what I said
Tell it tell it oh boy
We need an intervention

Do ya do ya do ya do ya do ya do ya do ya
Do ya do ya do ya do ya do ya do ya do ya wanna
Do ya do ya do ya do ya do ya do ya do ya
Do ya do ya do ya do ya do ya do ya do ya wanna

A terrific excess
If you would say yes yes
Do ya do ya wanna wanna
Wait for a new lover

Here I here I am am
Waiting for your plan man
Hella hella yea boy
You’re waiting for another
WHAT!!?
Track Name: Fool
You say your love is forever
You say your love is true
Yet you’re here in the arms of another
And I’m left playing your fool

Chorus:
I’ll spend my days making you love me
I’ll waste my life on you
And when I die alone and lonely
You’ll know I’ve always been your fool

To hear my name upon your lips
To feel your touch – I can’t resist
To think it’s meant for me, and me only
Just a fool’s last foolish wish

A fool is what I am
A fool for loving you
A fool to ever think that your love
Could so be true – just understand
That…
Track Name: Ace
The last man standing is a chump
He’ll get kicked around until he has had enough
That same mad Michael is intense
He’s just a little kid who knows some self defense

Chorus:
Go hop, skip and a-jump
Baby deal this cat an ace
Get a stomp, hit and a thump
Put an end to this debate
You gotta find yourself a date

This discount tandem is a catch
I’d throw an offer out but you would just protest
Daddy says I’m always late
Though I shouldn’t care – or hesitate

Simon says to get some rest
But I don’t need no goram sleep to look my best
Ya got whiskey sour on your breath
While running ’round in circles like a pest
Track Name: Hide
I fear myself, I’ve come unglued
All torn up and I’m needy
I’ve paid with loss, you’re guilty too
Betray my trust now I’m bleeding

Chorus:
I hide myself, I hide myself, I hide myself
For too long
I hide myself, I hide myself, I hide myself
Now I’m gone

I’ll fix this mess, eventually
Confused and alone it’s unnerving
My signature is not your property
‘Cause I’ll figure out I’m deserving

I’m gone
I’m gone

I tear at love, I scratch and rip
‘Til even my friends they won’t know me
I needed touch, I needed it once
But now the worst it controls me
Track Name: Paper Cuts
Hey Montana
You broke into my room to check my phone and laugh
You’re just like those girls
You think you know me from a couple random photographs
Make something big
Out of something so endemic and small
You take a swing
At the stupid little girl that you don’t know at all

You read my letters
To shut my lips
I see all those paper cuts on your finger tips
And Shh, they tell your stories
But I aint into forgiving tonight
So, here’s a ‘catch ya later’ lullaby

Oh sweet baby
I can’t be tamed, yet we’re so attached
But you stole my journal
And read all the parts when I was going fast
There’s something wrong
If you can blame me for the way that I was
You’re not that strong
If what you’re reading can be damaging
To both of us…

You read my letters
Then kiss my lips
I see all those paper cuts on your finger tips
Shh, come on baby
I aint into forgiving tonight
So, here’s a ‘catch ya later’ lullaby

Write it down and hide it in the drawer
Where no one ever looked before
But I forgot to lock the door
So now I know

It’s the same lame story
I read over every morning
Now I’m bored death
Yeah my words on this page
That I wrote down at every stage
At least, before you left
Made something big
Out of something so endemic and small
I’ll take that swing
At the stupid little girl that I don’t know at all

I read my letters
And touch my lips
To all those paper cuts on my finger tips
Say – Shh, come on Brandy
I aint into forgiving tonight
So, here’s a ‘catch ya later’ lullaby
Track Name: Love Letter
You went, wishing on a star
And placed an order for a man
Who would be gentle and handsome and earnest
According to all your plans
Well, I showed up and you didn’t seem nervous, but then
Your hopes are up and mine are straight down
Maybe it’s time I take a stand

Chorus:
I can write a love letter
If it will make you feel better
I’ll put my pencil to this paper and lie
And tell you we’ll be fine

You tell me over and over
That you’re a perfect catch
And that anyone who filtered you
Would find themselves a wretch
When I showed up. you weren’t quite perfect, i confess
And now I find myself in a fairly perfect mess

It’s amazing how you shake those hips
And when you tempt me with that mouth
I know I haven’t even kissed your lips
It’s more proper here in the south
Does anybody notice that you rarely leave much doubt?
That you’ll be my favorite when you start the jump and shout
Track Name: Context
You’re far above me?
Yea yea that don’t mean much
So full of ugly stuff
Don’t try and tempt me
Yea man I won’t be touched
With fingers clutched to rust
And now I don’t feel so good
Context says leave him
So I guess that I should

Chorus:
Lying close to you
My heart is walled
My brain is stalled, It’s true
But boy I can cut you loose
And dance all night
Leaving my body there to choose

You claim to hate me?
Yea yea that don’t mean jack
I make you guys come back
Don’t you ignore me
Go check your fitted hat
And plan your next attack
And now I don’t feel so good
Context says leave him
So I guess that I should

Now, I believe you crumble right before you fall
I start to fall apart, pushed up against this wall

You say you love me?
Yea yea that don’t mean much
Your veins are filled with dust
Don’t try and keep me
Yea bro I’ve stripped and flushed
With the insane end up
And now I don’t feel so good
Context say leave him
So I guess that I should
Track Name: Context (Acoustic)
You’re far above me?
Yea yea that don’t mean much
So full of ugly stuff
Don’t try and tempt me
Yea man I won’t be touched
With fingers clutched to rust
And now I don’t feel so good
Context says leave him
So I guess that I should

Chorus:
Lying close to you
My heart is walled
My brain is stalled, It’s true
But boy I can cut you loose
And dance all night
Leaving my body there to choose

You claim to hate me?
Yea yea that don’t mean jack
I make you guys come back
Don’t you ignore me
Go check your fitted hat
And plan your next attack
And now I don’t feel so good
Context says leave him
So I guess that I should

Now, I believe you crumble right before you fall
I start to fall apart, pushed up against this wall

You say you love me?
Yea yea that don’t mean much
Your veins are filled with dust
Don’t try and keep me
Yea bro I’ve stripped and flushed
With the insane end up
And now I don’t feel so good
Context say leave him
So I guess that I should
Track Name: Double Date
His eyes caught my attention
While listening to Elvis
At the local record store
His hair was nearly perfect
But – I was really jealous
Of the girl he hugged outside the front door
I overheard her say
That she was with her older brother
My face lit up as he approached
Yeah it would be so swell
I’d never want for any other
If I could be his girl, you know

Chorus:
Hey, baby hey
My knees go jelly when you look my way
Oh, boy
You’re so groovy, that’s all I can say
Let’s double date

Zach was holding hands with Tammie
At Billy’s pool
I wondered how long that would last
Well, Maddie mentioned Tammie
Kissed another boy in school
While she was going steady with Zach
Just then he stood up
And walked so cool, like undercover
My face lit up as he approached
Yeah it would be so swell
I’d never want for any other
If I could be his girl, you know

Zack, Bobby, Steve, Allen, Tom, Carl, and
Jeff, Dave, Mike, Craig, Doug and Ollie and
John, Chris, Sam, Frank, Tim and Paul
I can’t decide on one, so I guess I’ll date them all

Ohhh, but Alex looks so boss
Dressed up in his tuxedo
At the summer sock hop
His shoes are really shiny
Is he good at back seat bingo?
I’d like to see what he’s got
An Elvis record plays
He looks – for a new partner
My face lights up with his approach
Yeah it would be so swell
I’d never want for any other
If I could be his girl, you know
Track Name: 11:05
Wake up cheeky man
You’ve paid for indenture
So bind my willing hands
And enforce your rules
You can tie me down
Or string me up for leisure
Use me as a map
Or like your favorite tool

Chorus:
At 11:05 I strap on the spikes and the leather
And attempt to decide what to charge
All these harrowing fools

Handcuff me to the door
Of your bedroom
Cover my face with cloth
Pretending saboteur
Wrap my naked ankles
With some denim
Instruct me not to look...Not to look at you

Blind, I smell the melting wax
I feel the heat of your body
Like an animal feigning attack
You start to scratch and drool
Contorted, wrecked and abused
This fiction plays out so naughty
Still bound and limp
With my head upon a wooden stool
Track Name: Dandelion Stop
Wait. Don’t you say it
And don’t behave
This way
You call up waste
And to taste
Our decay

Chorus:
Your tongue in the mouth a dandelion
Stop. ‘Cause you’re drunk
You’re drunk
Wait, wait, wait then wait

Cough up your truth
If red or blue
I never knew
The path that leads us through
I thought was cool
In ’92

Don’t take this matter so urgent
‘Cause I’ll be the pain of it all
So kiss me, my little insurgent
As we fall

Wait. Don’t’ you say it
And don’t behave
This way
Track Name: Sarah
Sarah
There’s nothing I can do
Oh Sarah
I’ve talked and talked to you
And I can’t seem to say all the things that I’ve been feeling
You can’t seem to hear anything but “I am leaving”
If you’re lonely
Then I’m lonely

Sarah
Guess it’s time for me to go
Oh Sarah
I just wanted you to know
And I can’t seem to say all the things that I’ve been feeling
So please don’t write me off and tell me baby that you’re leaving
If you’re lonely
Then I’m lonely

Sarah
I miss you all the time
Oh Sarah
Come back and say you’re mine
And I can’t seem to say all the things that I’ve been feeling
I’ve realized by now that I’m the one who’s done the dreaming
If you’re lonely
Then I’m lonely

Oh Sarah
Track Name: Precious Girls & Robert Goulet
I am a girl with a social disorder
Yea, so many rabbits i’ve not really seen
’cause boys will be boys and I can’t yet afford them
My default is still pretty mean

I am a boy full of ID full of EGO
Just base your pretty life around me and we’re good
Girls will meet boys, their bathing suits and our Speedos
Don’t work out as much as I should

I understand pretty things are not precious
Oh, don’t call me precious, i’ll rupture your spleen
But send me a message, I may just return it
When your precious is turning 19

Aching to call but in perilous rapture
You won’t give me seconds or the time of the day
So I sent you a message, won’t expect you’ll return it
I’ll be cool like a Robert Goulet
