Alive 03:33
Oh hello open up just to get it on the record who you have become Let it go or let it swallow you whole a boring existential drift you miss the mark you take the hit oh no It's alive and it calls only when you're not looking do the words come and decide you're wrong no choice, but to make it up or to move along So you're scared of what you've become and you carry all the weight from it on and you wear it all on your sleeve and sell it to any soul that's listening It's alive and it calls only when you're not looking do the words come and decide you're wrong no choice, but to make it up or to move along

Sparks are left to eat you alive when darkness is the best of a bad, the best you've ever had That's the sound of giving up the ghost wrapped around a second hand Don't be a monster get a hold of yourself Every thought that leads you is sugar sweet cyanide Mouth washed, you're closed off, dust yourself dry It's the easy way out that scares you the most needle and thread, you old punching bag Don't be a monster get a hold of yourself Sparks are left to eat you alive when darkness is the best of a bad, the best you've ever had

Fickle Bitch 03:43
I'm surging with a rich girl's blood dressed down to fit with a fear of owning a TV All in all, is it a waste of time to memorize the scenes, toss back our drinks and disagree? I'm surging with a rich boy's blood and I'm not allowed to smile if it doesn't fit the scene All in all, she seems to catch my eye smoking half a cigarette and selling her degree

I'm living under the stairs and you carry your feet too loudly while I'm trying to sleep it just reminds me... I'm sleeping under the stars and you like to sing out loud while I'm trying to dream you drink to sink the sound Everybody all aboard this sinking ship it once housed a thousand pure ideals, but those hearts are parts in the machine and fruit flies gave rumor to the wheels

Capitolism 04:01
It's who you know it's what you get when you get sized up at the door Please tell me how to make it more than a little sideshow Sing the song, know the words that make me feel so good I wouldn't let it go even if I could Please tell me how to make it more than a little sideshow Mark my words I'm talking shit I'm into it, I'm over it Sing the song, know the words that make me feel so good I wouldn't let it go even if I COULD Please tell me how to make it more than a little sideshow Mark my words I'm talking shit I'm into it, I'm over it

Mozzarella 03:18
Your mouth is dry from all the talking your eyes are sunken in and I have compromised every single time just to let you win Your eyes are gone and sunken into my skin You're soaked in alcohol You were drinking that bubbly water out of colorful cans that made you seem you didn't drink just regular water and you had a bit of personality You had those figurines on shelves that looked like super heroes screamed 'come check me out' and all the things that I collect Your eyes are gone and sunken into my skin You're soaked in alcohol This is what you want and this is what you get and that's the taste of regret Oh, that line, the one you've watered down is a sad excuse for how you've been It comes as no surprise you've lost that spirit and I found it sinking to the bottom of a bottle of gin Your eyes are gone and sunken into my skin You're soaked in alcohol This is what you want and this is what you get and that's the taste of regret You're soaked in alcohol You're soaked in alcohol

Honestly, I'm desperate and alone and desperately I'm no good at letting go Be the love you know that you are You sing songs because you don't know better Be the love you know that you are Be the love you know you can be I've done work on my father's guitar leaning and it's holding the wall raised inside a Plasticine home by cartoon characters that you know Remove the trees supplant them with glass jars Would they continue to grow or would they have lived at all? Be the love you know that you are You sing songs because you don't know better Be the love you know that you are Be the love you know you can be I've done work on my father's guitar leaning and it's holding the wall raised inside a Plasticine home by cartoon characters that you know I've done work on my father's guitar he's leaving and I'm digging a hole when trees fall do they end with a sound if no one is around to behold?
