Track Name: empty cup
it was past 7 o'clock
and i was done trying
3rd cup of coffee
and i was done lying
my head was a mess
'cause you left that morning
i start to undress
but i wish it was pouring

the sun goes down
i start to fade
i feel the weight
of everything

but would you rather that i just shut up?
i could use my mouth like an empty cup
and when you're thirsty you can just drink up

i was searching on the web
looking for answers
how i should feel
and how to recover
but that wouldn't stop
the voices reminding
that i have no value
unless i'm providing

utility
it stifles me
can't even make
myself happy

but would you rather that i just shut up?
i could use my mouth like an empty cup
and when you're thirsty you can just drink up
Track Name: whine
how many lives do we sacrifice?
the world takes its time like a glass of wine
and how do i take care of myself?
i wouldn't be so cruel to anyone else

i know you say you value life
but i wish you could see the hate in your eyes
i know you say the price is right
but i'm afraid that tomorrow the sun will not rise

though my heart is breaking
there are no substitutions for aching
while the walls are crying
all i can do is keep whining

how many strikes
before it starts to look like the third reich?
i'm afraid that to save my own mind
i will have to ignore ways the world is unkind

i know you say you value life
but i wish you could see the hate in your eyes
i know you say the price is right
but i'm afraid that tomorrow the sun will not rise

though my heart is breaking
there are no substitutions for aching
while the walls are crying
all i can do is keep whining

the world takes its time like a glass of wine
Track Name: wise blood
sweetheart
you say you've had it rough
that wise blood
never was enough
you hold your head up like a liar
always afraid to start a fire

society
why can't you see
when you look into my eyes
please take me home
i'm so alone
why didn't you tell me you were mean?

unwilling
to admit that you were wrong
always just stringing right along
fragility is your greatest alibi
you told me that you would never hurt a fly

society
why can't you see
when you look into my eyes
please take me home
i'm so alone
why didn't you tell me you were mean?

you take all that you're given
and turn into a villain

sweetheart
you say you've had it rough
that wise blood
never was enough
Track Name: gold foil
you were always wearing smelly socks
and i was always smelling them
and i was reading magazine on the couch

you were always tugging on my hand
i thought it would turn into sand
i didn't understand

reflections of gold foil in your eyes

i was always sneaking in past 2
and making promises untrue
i ran away from everyone but you

reflections of gold foil in your eyes
Track Name: beach boy
you are a beach boy
in the summertime
i am a young girl
but i control my mind
i go out walking
in the morning
i am so lucky
it is so boring

i lie awake
and the sun boils my brain
sea salty stings
but i'm not afraid

the way the sun burns
it takes all of me
the way the world turns
there's no time for free

you are like cotton
after a rain shower
never quite drying
even in sunshine
i stub my toe and
now it is bleeding
but i will not cry
i love vermillion

i lie awake
and the sun boils my brain
sea salty stings
but i'm not afraid

the way the sun burns
it takes all of me
the way the world turns
there's no time for free
Track Name: mckenna
oh mckenna
you are so bitter
but such a good kisser
oh mckenna
loving you
was toxic for my liver
oh mckenna
you are so sour
you smell like rotten flowers

seven years old talk on the telephone
you tell me to call say that nobody's home
until your twin bother
pushed me down the hill
and your mother
said that he was still
her favorite
but now i have no more
stomach

oh mckenna
you are so fragile
you break just like a bottle
oh mckenna
you are so crazy
you cry just like a baby
oh mckenna
i am unwilling
to do my own killing

seven years old talk on the telephone
you tell me to call say that nobody's home
until your twin bother
pushed me down the hill
and your mother
said that he was still
her favorite
but now i have no more
stomach
Track Name: no cleats
slightly beered out in the park
heart quaking under the weight of concrete
it is beating, breaking now for me
blisters are growing on my feet
boys running by not wearing cleats
i wish i was stuck to the ceiling
dripping slowly down on your face
always dripping on your face
like a bad memory
poisoning your dreams
so you cannot sleep
Track Name: big toe
oh i would try to exercise
if i had a reason to go outside
but i've got everything i need right here
so please go away don't call me dear

i'm afraid to let you know
these shoes are hurting my big toe
i'm afraid to let you know
it's the reason i can't go

oh i would try to change my life
if only i didn't have to try
but it's so much easier to dream at night
where i can make a world inside my mind

i'm afraid to let you know
these shoes are hurting my big toe
i'm afraid to let you know
it's the reason i can't go
Track Name: pillow
i wouldn't say that my love is blind
i wouldn't say that i am unkind
'cause you are like an apple in a tree
the wind will blow but you won't fall to me

i wouldn't say that my heart is gold
i wouldn't say that my heart is cold
'cause when it burns the fire swallows me
if i am silent it's 'cause i can't breathe

like a pillow
i will hold you
tell you secrets
while you're sleeping

i wouldn't say that you should give up
just that the world's not a golden cup
but if you're thirsty you can believe
that there's a fountain inside of me

like a pillow
i will hold you
tell you secrets
while you're sleeping

like your shadow
i will follow
never knowing
where you're going
Track Name: mama
i am nothing like my mother
she is stronger she is wiser
she told me how to heal my broken heart
she just said don't think about it
she would hold me in her long arms
tell me when it hurts don't be alarmed

mama tell me
how i should be
you are like the earth
and i'm persephone
mama tell me
how life should be
you are like the sunrise
and i'm a tired lady

i stood standing in the cold rain
wishing that i'd brought an umbrella
she warned me that i would feel this way
now i'm wishing that her voice would go away
i started wondering if i'd catch a cold
wondering when my heart became so old

mama tell me
how i should be
you are like the earth
and i'm persephone
mama tell me
how life should be
you are like the sunrise
and i'm a tired lady
Track Name: goliath
i wish i was like sawdust to giants
your hands could hold me just like goliath
and when i fade into the oblivion
it would just be easier on your heart

i wouldn't mind if i were anyone else
i wouldn't mind it if you put me on a shelf
'cause your toes are the size of my head
your heart so loud it could wake up the dead

oh my goliath
you are so tall
you'd better not fall
oh my goliath
i am so small
can't hear me at all

i could describe the scenery from down here
but i bet to you everything's more clear
if you were 124 feet
you would not need any excuse to ignore me

i wouldn't mind if i were anyone else
i wouldn't mind it if you put me on a shelf
'cause your toes are the size of my head
your heart so loud it could wake up the dead

oh my goliath
you are so tall
you'd better not fall
oh my goliath
i am so small
can't hear me at all

'cause your toes are the size of my head
your heart so loud it could wake up the dead
