Track Name: Madeline
I am surrounded by relics of your love
no longer human I am a giant bug
there is no thought left that i’m not thinking of
I yell at those who step on my faux fur rug

broadcasting and parading my sullen mug
upon defeat retreat like a fallen slug
discrete, nothing concrete, look longingly above
distant voicemails they give my heart a tug

madeline

I am an animal who wears silk and satin
if I’m not there is it still happening
eventually all men’s tongues die like Latin
someday we’ll lie down and turn into saplings

I like Buster Keaton over Charlie Chaplin
refusal to lay in shit, bars I’ll be rattlin’
always the one in back slowly paddlin’
lomasi marie julia and madeline

madeline
Track Name: Not A Problem
I drive my friends insane
I am a real big pain
say no, say yes, say no
nowhere for one to go

this happens all the time they say
we don’t work, but we are the same
sorry this is not your problem
you say “it’s ok, it’s not a problem”

bite my hands, bide my time
cannot get out of line
say yes, say no, say yes
silence leads me to guess

we’re working on real big problems
we’re working on real big things
my mind can’t take one more problem
for you I will buy the real big things

we’re working on real big answers
we’re all working on ourselves
this is a big improvement
I am going to hang some shelves

my friends have thrown up arms
I have lost all my charms
say no, say yes, say no
nowhere for me to go

say yes, say no, say no
say no, say yes, say no
say yes, yes, yes, yes, yes
yes, yes, yes, yes, yes, no, no, no
Track Name: Outlaw
I am an outlaw, no pro’s all flaws
man am I on call, here to take all falls
you’re a reflection, painted to perfection
delightful confection, a welcomed infection
no eyes, no nose, no mouth, no toes
unable to cope with those who hope to wear no clothes

your stress gets the best of you
I get the rest of you
we dress how we choose
I hardly ever watch the news

sit straight, eyes front
shoulders back, be blunt
be great, concentrate on your innate traits
take decisive actions, make concise reactions
fake revised intentions, appear to break conventions

I can’t help but see you for what you are
I can’t help but see you for what you are
I can’t help but see you for what you are
I can’t help but see you for who you are

I am an engineer, building around your fears
what you may think is queer, I hold so very dear
you have the glossy veneer, of a painted pioneer
that you once saw on the screen, holding a cold beer
no eyes, no soul, no mouth, all holes
unable to cope with those willing to kill for prose

your stress gets the best of you
we’re all so used to you
never stop to think to choose
don’t pay attention to the news

be straight, be blunt
shoulders back, open up
be great concentrate, on your innate traits
take decisive actions, make concise reactions
fake your real intentions, bury your emotions
Track Name: Creature
creature of this earth
creature of this world
we imagine our worth
we compare every girl

we’re not what we were when we began
out value pressed up against a better man
can’t just eat, can’t just stand
walking infinitely across the hot sand

creature of this fire
creature of this man
entangled in your wires
let me help you understand

vessels that no longer look the same
but we’ll return from whence we came
we shame ourselves and take all the blame
manipulate and name the impossible flame

no need to punish or to extricate
no need to give in to alleviate
no more sorrow, emptiness aggravates
always alone will make you always hate

creature of this earth
creature of this world
we imagine our worth
we compare every girl
creature of this fire
creature of this man
entangled in your wires
let me help you understand
Track Name: Two Way Glass
I know so many people
I know where you were born
I don’t know where I’m going
but I know outside it’s warm
so many people know me
I do not know myself
I wish i knew you better
you know less of yourself

we all can see each other
the feeling drives us mad
there is no turning back now
we’ve all agreed to be bad

I know we just met by chance
and yet we’ve had no romance
I am aware of your stance
I know where you buy your pants

one thousand people
and I know not one
I can see that you are out having fun
there is no moon
and there is no sun
you’re a handsome devil’s sun

I know where you have lunch
I can’t remember my life
a few mutual friends
I know you don’t have a wife
we have no common interests
I can see you on my phone
I should not have known you
why can’t I leave you alone

we all can see each other
the feeling drives us mad
there is no turning back now
we’ve all agreed to be bad

I know we just met by chance
and yet we’ve had no romance
if I could steal glance
maybe I could change your stance

one thousand people
and I know not one
I can see that you are out having fun
there is no moon
and there is no sun
you’re a handsome devil’s sun
Track Name: Merry Go Round
you live in a room on a street in the world
look how they go, all the people in a whirl
you eat, and you sleep, and you kiss, and you die
look as they bow, beg and plead, and sigh

I saw you in the commotion, all those bodies in motion
friend and lover, we will destroy one another
you get a promotion, now you live by the ocean
and your children won’t know how you suffered all your life

the future is a creature, with its’ features unwritten
and you can’t see at all
there is nothing left to see here
there is nothing left to hear, dear
and you can’t see me at all

look as I go underground
look at your heart on the ground
knee deep in dead, where I’m bound

happiness refunded, stories unfounded
discounted words, a percentage of your life
the rate of interest makes you feel worthless
all you borrowed looms over all your tomorrows

the future is a creature, with its’ features unwritten
forever is what you can’t see
nothing left to measure
nothing left to tether
forever we cut the string

look at yourself turnaround
look at yourself turning round
let’s go again, merry go round

we live in a room on a street in the world
look how they go, all the people in a whirl
look as I go underground
look at yourself turning round
let’s go again, merry go round
Track Name: Hey Look
I can’t stop holding on in my brain there’s something wrong
I can’t stop holding on writing way too many songs
that I wish didn’t mean thing
‘cause I don’t want to hear me sing
about you… it’s so cliché

I can’t stop holding on in my brain there’s something wrong
I can’t stop holding on writing way too many songs
hat I wish didn’t mean thing
‘cause I don’t want to hear me sing
hey look, don’t you see
I’m so sad when you look at me
I am just a stupid girl
you’re an idiot in a big dumb world

whether I win or whether I lose
don’t tell me what to feel
don’t tell me what to choose

gonna think what I’m gonna think
and I’m gonna say what I’m gonna say
and I’m gonna do what I’m gonna do
and I’m gonna do it anyway

I know you still care
but it’s not fair
I don’t know what to think anymore
don’t let it bleed forever more
I don’t know what to think anymore
don’t let it bleed forever more
Track Name: Remember
I can recall, when I knew it all
arrogant and young, self-righteous tongue

remember

angry and alone, staring at the phone
and the wind so sweet, lifts me off my feet

remember

I'd say things to get a reaction out of you
I just wanted to be a part of your point of view

hiding behind, the borderline
I'll call you when I'm home, so you don't feel alone

remember
Track Name: Jump The Gun
time to wake up the day is almost gone
all that is left allay take it along
don't be so defeated, don't drown in the past
try and let the deep-seated pain fall and pass

I'm not much better than you
I can't let some things fall from view
all I see is black and blue
just keep doing what you do

we're all a little tired and gray
sometimes we jump the gun and say
I don't want to stay

I love all the things you used to do and make
it breaks my heart to see you in such a state

I'm not much better than you
belittling all that we do
sometimes it's all black and blue
walk away and be born anew

we all want to laugh and play
sometimes we jump the gun and say
I don't want to stay

we're all a little tired and gray
sometimes we jump the gun and say
we all want to laugh and play
sometimes we jump the gun and say
I don't want to stay
Track Name: Contrary To Popular Belief
I should be the one you love
I want to be the one you bury
I should be the one you love
I want to be the one you marry
I should be the one you love
come sit with me, don’t be wary

a cold summer sweat, a warm winter chill
under the sheets or when you’re ill
when you’re at the vet or over by the mill
under the gun, or on your pills
upside down or up your window sill
inside sunsets, or outside jail cells
when we confess and when we feel well
enough to start, to cope, to deal, to will

I should be the one you love
each other we can carry
I should be the one you love
I want to be the one you bury
I should be the one you love
come lay with me, don’t be wary

the night so long, and the days go fast
you trip and fall holding onto the past
your words are wrong, and your face is glass
your heart is deep, and your thoughts are vast
my brain is smoke, fixated eyes are cast
the hole is dug, the flag at half-mast
the bomb is planted, anticipate the blast
words withdraw, words do no last

my thoughts now I will bury
my heart is dead and wrong
my remnants you can carry
I will not finish this love song
