Track Name: Get Lost
I don’t care if you want to leave here
And I won’t care if you think I’m square
I don’t care if I’m going nowhere
I could get lost from anywhere

Grown tired of excuses, maybe
All of my holding back
Just remember I loved you, maybe
Nevermind how it all fell flat

It’s no wonder you warned me
It’s no wonder you warned me twice
It’s no wonder you warned me
I should’ve taken my own advice

I’m into all things new
A thought that doesn’t involve you
Forging through my own path
Leaving and filling gaps

With goals mapped out like a soldier
I’ll try dating someone older
I’ll try to be somewhat bolder
Be way cooler, but not colder
Now, I’m on my own

It’s no wonder you warned me
It’s no wonder you warned me twice
It’s no wonder you warned me
I should’ve taken my own advice

When I see myself out
When I see myself out
When I see myself out of your life

I don’t care if you want to leave here
And I won’t care if you think I’m square
I don’t care if I’m going nowhere
I should’ve taken my own advice
Track Name: All the Same
I froze at the knees
When you told me you’d leave
And any meaningful thing I could say
Was somewhere locked away

Still if ever you should need
Your place back here with me
I would open up the old wound again
Cause I hate how these things end

When it’s all the same
When it’s all the same to me
It’s all the same
When it’s all the same to me, to me

Well it’s looking to be
The coldest winter for me
While you’re smiling at her in my head
I’ll be alone with the bed

But one day we’ll all be friends
Cause this heart will yearn to mend
I’ll even let her eat the food off our plates
While you kiss her in my face

When it’s all the same
When it’s all the same to me
It’s all the same
When it’s all the same to me

I’m anything but proud
Track Name: Tell me
Tell me your secrets in spite of you
Tell me the terrible things you’ll do

And oh, my love
I won’t run from you
I will let you be you
You be you

But if you shame me
Well, I could kill you
I could break you in two

I’m not faking
So don’t be mistaken
See I’ve much better things to do

Call me hysterical
I’m really quite fine
I’m a woman
And a woman knows her mind
I am strong, I won’t quit trying
And I’m running, no I won’t run blind

Why must I wait?
I see no line

Tell me your secrets in spite of you
Tell me the terrible things you’ll do

And oh, my love I won’t run from you
I will let you be you
You be you
You’ll be...

Does it bother you that I’m forward?
Well I have a thoughtful mouth
While you spew sick intolerance
I’m afraid to leave my house

You can’t sign away my rights on a dotted line
I’m a woman and a woman knows her mind
When I’m gone, what will I leave behind?
The tracings of a world all mine

So your saddest crime
Would be to waste my time

Tell me your secrets in spite of you
Tell me the terrible things you’ll do
Track Name: Centuries
Well I know
Everything sees changing
I suppose
It's time to rearrange
The lines that drove
My mind with a steady hand
When I'm all alone
It’s when I start to understand

What's been alive for centuries
Now, is choking me

When I step outside the door
I close my eyes, pretend that I don't see
A thousand judging eyes
Building blocks around me

Don't give into them
Your thoughts, they've been deceiving


What’s been alive for centuries
Been alive for centuries
Been a lie for centuries
Now, is choking me


Don’t give into them
Not everyone’s misleading
But you knew it, right?
You knew it right?

You just force a smile
Til it takes on new meaning
But you knew it, right?
You knew it right?
Yeah, you knew it right
You knew it alright

What’s been alive for centuries
Been alive for centuries
Track Name: Only Obvious to You
I can’t do this anymore
Feel like a waste of your time
I push myself to match your pace
And fall behind

Frozen by the door
I was never the kind
Told myself I’d stay right here
Have I lost my mind?

I’ve tried my best to keep quiet
While you work a room
But when you have a reason to shut me down

It’s only obvious to you
It’s only obvious to you, anymore

I must be your dog
Innocent and meek
Holding on to your every word
Versed in self-defeat

If I ask a thoughtful question
Can’t it get a true response?
Or will you speak in tongues like it’s over my head

And it’s only obvious to you
It’s only obvious to you
It’s only obvious

Do you think it’s fine?
Leave me hanging off the line
Do you need some time
To pull your head out of your ass and try?

Love will always fuck you over
Love will always fuck you over
Love will always fuck you in the head

It’s only obvious to you
Track Name: Rum Cheeks
If I had my mind right
I would tell you what
Makes my heart ring
Makes my tongue sing
Makes the tip of my nose keep raising

At the site of your red rum cheeks
Yellow light beads tracing your pale feet
Pull me in
I’m ready to sleep

At your place
At your place
At our place?
A good pace
A good pace
A good pace
I feel safe
At our place
Track Name: Bloomed
I swam ‘cross the bend
When we were more than friends
I tore through endless jargon
Mapped uncharted gardens

Finding the words to forget you just flow
Now I’m living without you
My heart glows

I never would cry
With big tears in my eyes
Cause it made you feel stronger
Your tooth’s growing longer

My little tender soul
Bloomed and in control

Where I lay
Guided by sight
Where I lay
A light from inside
Track Name: Not a Minute Too Soon
I can’t decide
Where I want to hide

You have everything
You have everything

Oh wait, where am I?
I am lost here inside

You have everything
You have everything

And all it took was honesty

Not a minute too soon
I was giving up
I was out of luck
Not a minute too soon
I was giving up
I was out of love for you

All I did was try
Hoping you might change your mind

You have everything
You have everything

And all it took was honesty
To get me to believe in what I need

Not a minute too soon
I was giving up
I was out of luck
Not a minute too soon
I was giving up
I was out of love

Hold me now
Til I can’t breathe
Til I’m low
Til I’m empty

Not a minute too soon
I was giving up
I was out of luck
Not a minute too soon
I was giving up
I was out of love for you

I was giving up
I was out of love for you
Track Name: I Am in Love With Your Mind
Oh, when you speak
How it echoes in my brain
I want to know how it all became
I want to know if there’s something to change
When will that be?

All this waiting
This waiting is killing me

Where am I going if I can’t see you?
Where am I going if I can’t pass through?

Oh, with the lights off I finally see
I want to know how it all gets set free
I want to know if there’s something unique within me

All this waiting
This waiting is killing me

Where am I going if I can’t see you?
Where am I going if I can’t pass through?

Take me down
Take me down when it’s raining
And from my lips, with what’s left
of me fading

I am in love with your mind
Track Name: On Your Shoulder
You say the words and I start humming
Fetching songs from your head
I like how you need two cups of water
On the nightstand by the bed
One’s not enough, you’ve said

I like to watch you
To see the dreams play out like fads
Unfurrow your brow for you
Don’t like to see you look so stressed

When you wake up
Come out slowly
I’ll be all you need
I am always on your shoulder
Whatever it takes to be your baby

Oh, you take the breath right out of my mouth
If you lead the way, I’ll never doubt you

I like to watch you
To see the dreams...

Wake up
Come out slowly
I’ll be all you need
I am always on your shoulder
Whatever it takes to be your baby

Whatever it takes
Track Name: Take it All Away
Take it in stride
And don’t let them ask anything when it hurts the most
And when you’re ready
I’ll be there silently
Holding your hand like a ghost

If you’re not afraid, I’m not afraid
If you want it changed
Then wake up and claim it

Take it all away

It’s not that easy
And I don’t blame you for staying inside to lock things out
Lost track of the days
When biting my tongue left a standing taste of blood in my mouth

If you’re not afraid, I’m not afraid
If you want it changed
Then wake up and claim it
Wake up and claim it

Take it all away

Break down that sorrow
Rebuild things tomorrow

Take it all away
