Track Name: All Day
mourn the loss of giving a shit
two middle fingers to the world every morning
bite back, bite through

sea salt in my fucking mouth (mouth mouth mouth mouth)
rotting my brain from the inside out (out out out out)
pick and choose what to loose (dead stare across the room)

crawled around the sun one more time and it hurt hurt hurt hurt hurt hurt hurt
seven hearts ago i was only mine and it hurt hurt hurt hurt hurt hurt hurt

bite back, bite through
all day, all day
Track Name: Afterbite
who cares, don’t be scared
i’m cool, you’re cool

i’m there in the wild air
so fucked up, live your fear

i want you to leave the light on
i want you to go all night long
i want you to come on over
i want you to stay forever
Track Name: Temple
trust no one, eat your tears
swallow your pride, kill your fear

when you play the game are you in it to win it
my intention is confession so don’t you forget
we are standing on the edge of identity
and you don’t want me you just wanna succeed
if everything’s alive until it’s not
don’t ignore yourself when it’s all you’ve got
everything’s a dream when nothing is real
so tell me baby how does it feel

they only want what they can sell
and i can’t help that i sell well
we are drawing circles on empty page
playing power chords on a private stage
the body’s a temple, it’s in ruins
empty visions, empty tomb
if everything i own i steal
tell me baby how does it feel

is this a genius party or a fantasy?
is the price we pay worth the victory?
Track Name: 200X
i check my balance but i fall i fall
when you're the scavenger i don't eat at all
i can't stand up and I can't sit still
and i can feel the mend but not the pull

demons, best friends
reservation, no-show
i'm feeling like venus
i'm reeling like pluto

expand one time
one time two times two hundred times

show me how you shake it baby
show me how you move at all
Track Name: Nightmare
1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8
candy bar nightmares, sugar-coated mouth
heavy heavy tongue tongue, no no fun fun
i’m bored

i don’t wanna and you can’t make me
sub-memory makes you hate me
x on my head from the drugs you gave me
dead & dumb, just leave me, baby

shit shitty talk talky
what’s new? not you
knew what i was getting into

self-fulfilling prophecy, i’m so sorry
i’m bored

1 2 3 4
candy bar nightmares, sugar-coated mouth
heavy heavy tongue tongue, no no fun fun
self-centered nightmare, you can’t talk to me

rip all the pages out of my life, eat all the dreams out of my mind
wake me up when this shit’s over
i fucking hate october
Track Name: Static
if my body were real real
and not made of static static
would i be a woman or a television?
stay up late, get blissed out, dead air on this station

lights on
lights out
lights off
nothing but the blackout

fill my head with gems and crystals
til i am grounded, grounded
i'm massive like mansions
but i'll take my chances
microscopic presence
with blisters as fashion

i'm ghostin, i'm haunted
i'm in your room just like a real woman
but my body's a tsunami and my hands are clawing nowhere
it's like lights on
lights out

lights on lights out
nothing but the blackout
lights on lights out
static static
Track Name: Heavy Dreamy
it all felt like a fever dream, diving in so politely
acting up, acting out
we are multiplying, shouldn’t even be trying
you can’t show me
acting up, acting out

heavy is okay with me if heavy is okay with you

i’m a scorpio rising and i want to walk down lover’s lane
i’m a scorpio rising and i wanna be skin to skin, chin to chin
i’m a beanie baby sad sack wind up heart attack

when we are dead then we are done
transfer addictions onto your tongue
acting up, acting out
we are multiplying, shouldn’t even be trying
you can’t show me
acting up, acting out

heavy is okay with me if heavy is okay with you

i’m a scorpio rising and i want to talk about politicized thighs
i’m a scorpio rising and i wanna be big scary big scary
i’m a beanie baby sad sack wind up heart attack

it all felt like fever dream, diving in so politely
when we are dead then we are done
Track Name: Luxury
scratched teeth from the rocks in my mouth
tongue tired from pushing them around
swollen from shaking, have to get it redone
scrape it out and leave it out to dry in the sun

you shake so hard you bite right down
you shake so hard you crack it out

on big vacation
pretending to drown
my body bleached out
and weighted down
my mouth tastes
like chalk and candy
i've got the bloodrush
I've got the sugar crash, the luxury
the luxury the luxury

now i'm collecting whatever sells
i'll leave whatever's rotting out
i've got the shelf life of chalk and candy
i've got the bloodrush
I've got the sugar crash, the luxury
the luxury the luxury

dead eyed, skirt high
on the wall or on the ground
eyes crossed, loud words
under the floorboards or deep in your forest
Track Name: Brainstorm
we are two worlds, we are both bored
we are too old, we are both cold

storm in my brain
hard to maintain
storm in my brain
takes time to tame

who are you to tell me who i am
who are you to tell me what i want
Track Name: Souvenir
i'm precious like a souvenir
i'm faster than a predator
dressed like a savior
dressed like a bad behavior

you don't wanna turn away
i don't wanna stick around
you gotta turn it up turn it up
if ya wanna be down

hey!

mouth full and spilling out of my head even more on the weekend weekend

all fangs and fur, yeah
all fangs and fur, yeah
all fangs and fur, yeah

somebody’s dividing
somebody’s dividing

when your body is a battle, your body is a battlefield
when this war won't end end end end

you're permanent and you bend bend bend
don't hang it up babe i'm on the other end

i'm precious like a souvenir
i'm faster than a predator
are you dressed like a savior
or are you dressed like a bad behavior

more precious than a predator
shed like the weather weather
cold hands hot heads
nocturnal lover lover
all fangs and fur
it gets warmer and warmer
no hurt when you're under the covers

hey
Track Name: Freak Noise
if you want it, you can have it
head in your hands, you can have it
if you want it, you can have it
your head in my hands, if you want it

you say things like, “i’m not asking to have it all”
i am i am i want it all right now

you build the strong only to tear them down

i felt fine, then i didn’t feel fine
forget what you gave up to get better

you can have it, you can have it, you can have it
if you want it, you can have it
Track Name: Hail Mary
mother maiden baby crone
give me something to call my own
what queen what crown
i still make a sound when you’re not around

kill the girl i used to be
to kill the thing you made of me
when i’m on fire
you’ve got a watery heart

who is the one who lies?
who is the one who cries?
who is the one who profits?
who is the one who dies?

down in the dark
down in the street
down in your heart
like a dog in heat
nothing’s forever
nothing is free

but you can walk the dog
you can get a job
there’s still time to fuck it up
they’ll throw you a bone
and you’ll take it

take it!
it’s mine mine mine mine
take it!

i said hail mary it’s a whole to carry
for an ugly girl in an ugly world

this is war, this is war
Track Name: Trip Wire
i'll hold it in until it aches
you can just hold your hand out since you're so good at taking it
i'll hold your hair back from the shade
cuz you can't see her in the road when the sun is in the street
you've got the power to pull me under
and you've got the power to keep me loaded
and i've got the hurt like a hangover
why can't you read my mind, it's only getting louder

i've got a mind like painted lines
and I've got veins like power lines
and I don't wanna be so nice, I don't wanna be so nice

i take up space, you pick a favorite daughter
my tongue is the weight that pulls me underwater
and you are the ache that the sun rolls over
if heaven's in the elevator i'm waiting at the corner
and it's not wanted it's not wanted it's not wanted

i dedicate this world on fire
to the girls that feel like they're waiting for a tripwire
i dedicate this world on fire
to the girls that feel like they're waiting for a tripwire

i'll hold it in until it aches
you can just hold your hand out since you're so good at taking it
i'll hold your hair back from the shade
cuz you can't see her in the road if the sun is in the street
and it's not wanted it's not wanted it's not wanted
Track Name: Cannon
what’s it mean to be a good daughter?
your mouth keeps moving but nothing gets louder
takes a lick keeps ticking
she’s a witch she is risen
can’t stop talking about girl power

i wanna go on and on forever
i wanna be as strong as the weather
i’m a guest of nature
a new and true color
no fear another year
just shy of the power
you say you got something to say?
so say it

there’s a spot in the middle where nothing fits
there’s a promise we made to recover it
what’s the use what’s the use in having to choose
between work and play and me a you?

burn your hands on the sun
take it and run take it and run
run run run run
Track Name: The End
star stuck, split ends
loose lips, the end, the end

it’s so dumb to be young
when smart is only just a start
but you’re bound to get it
you’re bound to get it
you’re bound to get it
some day day day day

sometimes you’re lonely
sometimes you’re lovely
sometimes a ghost just takes your place
a stomach or a sister is it bruised or is it stitches
the skin is all that keeps it in

you look in the mirror and you break it you break it
they taught you how to feel and you fake it you fake it
you feel the rest inside your chest
but you’ve got to name it to claim it

this might be hell but so what
someday you’ll be the next in line to die
and that’s fine, that’s fine
