Good Girl 1 05:18
this isn’t what i wanted i don’t know what is good could i take her out and fuck her? with guilt i’ll be consumed she showed what she was made of she bends and aches before she breaks i’ve got nothing to give her but something dark inside her shakes i don't know how to help her as she lay there in the litter red and flowing with the river she doesn’t know i need her
2.
hands at your side as you sneak in we shouldn’t do all that we’re told strip down until i see your soul head on my heart you feel my pulse the way you send me to the clouds i never want to live without mold your hands into my muscles i never want to live without like clockwork we comedown in droves i never want to live without hands at your side, head on my heart i never want to live without you and after all that we’ve been through i still can’t write a song for you
3.
you were the center of my heart then i let my brain get stepped on while you lay facedown flowing with the river i should have known right from the start that everybody has a weakness and mine was found at this nadir but now i can see some direction ran out of sins i must confess I've got to get out of the city before I burn it to the ground i can’t help thinking it’s worth staying but what is not lost can’t be found and i will step into the ocean a lack of comfort in my way the future will be full of mistakes or present's mistakes here to stay ‘cause this is the best part of the worst days of our lives this is the best part of the worst days of our lives this is the best part of the worst days of our lives this is the best part of the worst days of our lives and i'll keep rearranging my things unless you break apart my mould end the clockwork, ease the tension and i'll keep coming back to hold you this is the best part of the worst days of our lives this is the best part of the worst days of our lives

Belly 04:53
i was always taught to remember all my manners but i will fight if you become a barrier i hear all your words of hate all they do is motivate it's impossible for me to pack it up and withdraw i can’t feel my legs can’t fill my lungs can’t hear my thoughts can’t stop the push but that's part of it but i drive it up i’m not gonna stop til i get what i want i keep on moving though it gets harder i’m pushing it farther ‘cause i know that i oughta i drive it up i don't want to be a bloated belly of a seated donkey idle festering lifeless procrastinating found out all the ways i can bend and ache before i break you swallow a pill ease the pain while you have your fill but i drive it up i’m not gonna stop til i get what i want i keep on moving though it gets harder i’m pushing it farther ‘cause i know that i oughta i drive it up they tell me that i can change it i do believe i can change it i swear to god i can change it god or no god i can change it

back to my home now 
oh, how long has it been
 don't even remember where i put the keys 
i'll sip my coffee have a drink
 take off your shoes 
stay awhile
 i love your company, i haven't had in years such a long time been away 
this is so familiar i wish it were easy to recall your name
 i wish you'd look the way i'd tell you 
it's not that way such a long time been away 
this is so familiar

Trendsetters 07:16
I they're gonna burn this town they'll burn it to the ground why must it be such a problem to be a little uncool? but now they're all in school planning some great destruction i can't keep up with the trends i'll follow you instead isn't that what everyone does now? they say that E! got the facts and food network got the snacks I can't afford that i never know when to say it but i know how to take it 'cause i can't keep up i never know when to say it but i know how to take it 'cause i can't keep up last night a wordless chorus echoed through the basements i didn't understand it -- but all in unison and that meant everything! if mtv got the hits I must be in the sticks missed out on sexy violence if liquor's all we need to save the city then shove it in my face i never know when to say it but i know how to take it 'cause i can't keep up i never know when to say it but i know how to take it 'cause i can't keep up you never know when to run so they cut you down it's strength in numbers — II I'd rather die than never find out

she’s too good for me now she’s too good for me now down st. alphonsus where the weak take shape uphill we climb to drink away the pain came here to buy all the shit they spew but all i see are those baby blues this isn’t what i wanted you stood up on your own i’m dreaming i’m inside you but i know you’re not around no party can replace you it’s fleeting like the sun well, i can lock myself up where there is only one if only you were here then i could be sincere with myself but you’re too good for me used to think i was sitting pretty now i can’t even make my bed and in my mind i’m anxious it’s eating me alive like garbage on the corner it’s festering, it thrives if only you were here then i could be sincere with myself but you’re too good for me i can’t force you to love me but in my mind you do they say i’m a fool for waiting, but perception is the truth

Ritual 06:34
this is not a game; it's a ritual i need for you to trust me we know all the things each other do we came here to do amazing things but i don’t wanna end this feeling that we’ve brought into the room but look at those kids up miles above us don't want another year of bored and nervous but I can't take my eyes off the rules so you take me into your room and you pull me out of my clothes i mean it when i say i never want to end this then I take you into my room and I pull you out of your clothes you'll mean it when you say I never want to end this is it okay to feel this enlightened? it feels like i’ve been born a second time this time i’m in the dirt so what do other paths give way to? the curious abandon if we don’t belong, turn and revert ‘cause this is not a game; it's a ritual and you and i collapse into the surreal
