Track Name: Secondhand Trash
stop expecting me to be in love
keep your feelings to yourself
because it isn't over
you know it's never over

you used to be a pretty problem
now you're just a pain in the ass
you were never classy
you were just secondhand trash

and i don't wanna clean up anymore
and i won't let you stain all the things i've made
this was never anymore than a chore
from the day we met to the last thing that you said
and all i see are your predictable habits and the cigarettes and unwelcome hands
and you're in her bed again

you were rough at best, a frazzled child
made a fool of me again
thinking that you would change
people never do change

you took the best parts of myself
and you turned them all against me
i could never see you clearly
i ignored all the dishonesty

and i don't wanna clean up anymore
and i won't let you stain all the things i've made
this was never anymore than a chore
from the day we met to the last thing that you said
and all i see are your predictable habits and the cigarettes and unwelcome hands
and you're in her bed again

i will be as mad at you as i want for as long as i want
i will owe nothing to you for as long as i want
i want nothing to do with you
ever again
Track Name: Daddy Warbucks
i don't wanna be sorry for making you crazy
i don't need another one
you've been running in and out of my mind all day
and when i come home, it still isn't done

daddy warbucks, i give no fucks

i wanna run your brains
don't wanna be your baby

i don't want an invitation to another one of your pity parties
they're boring, you bore me
you contribute to the cycle of a disrespectful culture
and claim solidarity on issues you contribute to

daddy warbucks, i give no fucks

i wanna run your brains
don't wanna be your baby
Track Name: Make Out
sleep all day, stay inside
i'll waste the time in my bed
cry sometimes, wonder if
i should be on the prozac
my brain is done with my shit and it's giving in
and everyone i know hangs with their boyfriend

my best friend
doesn't ever ask me how i'm doing
i live with some girls
but i don't really like them

everyone's so stupid i just wanna lay down with you
everyone's so stupid i just wanna make out with you

i go out by myself
i wanna feel the sunshine
wanna smoke cigarettes
without being hit on
i watch the couples walk by hand in hand
i watch the tourists filling up the trash cans

everyone's so stupid i just wanna lay down with you
everyone's so stupid i just wanna make out with you
Track Name: Seven Days
seven days and seven ways
to work together to make things better
things i did and the things you said
and the things we both want to forget

from my window i can see
clouds are only temporary
and on the ground there's only gray
but we're gonna be okay

you are sick and i am sick
of the people we used to hang out with
you are bored and i am bored
of the people we used to be before

but from my window i can see
clouds are only temporary
and on the ground there's only gray
but we're gonna be okay
Track Name: Without A Fight
why'd you have to change
'cuz this song was meant for you
you said things that i thought were true
you're killing me the same
in your eyes i see the lies
we were one, but now we're two
i still want you

i can't stand the way you breathe
in every glance you are haunting me
trickle down the static in my spine
like a dog you cry and whine
for me to touch you

because now i would die for you tonight
because i won't leave without a fight

i can see it clearly now
the sorrow in your brow tells me that it's true
you said you would be here for while
but when i see her smile
i really do see

because now i die for you tonight
because i won't leave without a fight
Track Name: Irrelevant
i've been waiting for the day
i could sleep a little sounder without you
but you're messy, you left stains
on the people i love, the people i would do
anything to get rid of you
you're never gone enough, you still don' think you did
anything wrong
well i can show you scars that will never disappear
everything's better now
we all pretend you were never here

the world will harden you
but that's no excuse
and i hope you see it through
do what you said you'd do
you're too dirty for me
you're too dirty

it took too long for me to see
you were never the person you claimed to be
trying on skins to impress me
i hate that it worked but i am a tree
and my roots are digging deep
you weren't important enough to sway me
from my path
and i don't need to rise above you
i'm already higher than that
and you're becoming more irrelevant

the world will harden you
but that's no excuse
and i hope you'll see it through
do what you said you'd do
you're too dirty for me
you're too dirty
Track Name: I Hate You
Ooooo I hate you
Ooooo I hate you

when you look at me, you're the only one you see
you're blinded by stupid philosophies
your words leak out like a broken spout
you think you're the only one with doubt in the room
the only victim, the only one who knows
how shitty things are
i just don't let it show

you always weigh your problems heavier than mine
but it's my birthday and you're drinking my wine
you act like you're the reason for every fucking season
but leaves are falling and you will too very soon
you're an open book that no one wants to read
a phony, stereotypical plastic barbie queen

Ooooo I hate you
Ooooo I hate you
Ooooo I hate you
Ooooo I hate you
Track Name: Dream World
you strip me barer than bones and i face
the layers of muscles and blood
i've covered myself in scar tissue
please don't go away or i'll miss you
i need a second to sort through
all the accidents i've caused
but there was nothing accidental at all
it's that sometimes i feel so small

i could make my own planet where everything is honest
and words don't get jumbled and i can believe in promises
promise me this
there's a color for everyone and one day i'll be weightless

i watch your silhouette through the sheets
i'm learning to love all the tiny diamonds
they're bold just to exist
but they won't help me through this
i need a second to work out
my lack of trust because i can count
an abacus of fucked up
a syllabus of tough love

i could make my own planet where everything is honest
and words don't get jumbled and i can believe in promises
promise me this
there's a color for everyone and one day i'll be weightless
Track Name: Space Invaders
the way i feel i something that i can't say
and it feels like a wave of space invaders and rattlesnakes
i'm not lying, i'm not lying, no

i'm in your arms but far away no one can chase me
the stars above are beckoning me, telling me come home
please come home, please come home

i am waiting, very patient
i am missing the ones i used to know
what's this feeling i can't stop feeling
i am wondering why this world won't let me go
Track Name: Eat Them
they say human tastes best frozen i agree
just bite around the bones
leave the dick for birds to eat
pick my teeth and go in for your heart of weeds
i could puke you up
you and your misogyny

i don't think it's fine, i wanna kill you
and i can say the same about your friends
giving all their money to the boy bands
i'm sick of stupid men
i think i'm gonna eat them
eat you and your friends

you're the type of guy who likes to call me pretty
but when i call you out, you just call me bitchy
you don't want to listen you just want to look at me
it's been going on too long
this time you're the meat

i don't think it's fine, i wanna kill you
and i can say the same about your friends
giving all their money to the boy bands
i'm sick of stupid men
i think i'm gonna eat them
eat you and your friends
Track Name: The Only One (Part I)
i'm always watching when you're lying through your teeth
you try to bite my head off when i tell you truth is all you need

you feel me but you can't see

and when you're waking up you have to face
the shadows of your mind are making mazes
when the truth is all you need
and i can't breathe

you feel me but you can't see

i am my own ocean
i'll climb my own mountain

i don't wanna be the only one you're saying sorry to
i don't wanna be the only one
