Madeline 03:35
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

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

Outlaw 04:02
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

Creature 03:50
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

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

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

Hey Look 03:15
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

Remember 04:09
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

Jump The Gun 04:45
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

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
