Control 03:12
My mind, my mind keeps running away keeps running away Please, I’ll fuck this up don’t touch me. I can’t control you anyway I swear I’ll just break you down. My mind and body’s breaking me down keeps breaking me down- my body’s breaking me down keeps me breaking me down.

And I know love is better when it hurts me and it hurts a little harder with you but I just keep on searching just to find love at the bottom of the barrel. Slipping your fingers falling down backwards, this isn’t how this how this was supposed to go- this is more like drowning in hell where everything tastes nice wildly entangling all that you’ll never show burning sweetly all of your patience shuns my impatience speaking in mirrors tell me now, fast or slow? Tell me is it fast or slow. And I know love is better when it hurts me and it hurts a little harder with you but I just keep on searching just to find love at the bottom of the barrel. Growing to find I’m cruel and you’re heartless tie you down sweetly tight to the kitchen floor like you like it tell me you hate me, tell me you need me acting like strangers never became you more Slipping farther down in your sea you smile like a train wreck wreck me and break me then clean up all the rest you’re my favorite kind of mess. And I know love is better when it hurts me and it hurts a little harder with you but I just keep on searching just to find you at the bottom of the barrel.

Actor 04:09
And I forgot needing I forgot wanting I forgot haunting Now I know It isn’t much solace to be your prisoner with your back breaking on my spine. But I’m not not coming to get you silly doll (you never could make up your mind) not coming to get you not this time is this the thrill you’re searching for? I’ll make you crazy little actor. Don’t be such a bummer, baby counting all the ways to kill me. Don’t be such a bummer, baby counting al the ways to kill me. Kill me- but you won’t.

Abuse 03:10
It was just another time to be a little less alive just another time to feel a little less like myself and I hate everything that comes around- it just keeps coming round again- everything that comes around keeps coming. Everything that comes around it just leaves me a little more used. My lazy blue dream keep it to yourself I was caught in the middle of a fucked up crime scene clinging to myself Every time the sun comes up I get a little unwound I get to feeling like the world is crumbling down and I can’t seem to let go of it all but I never want to see you again. Put your right foot left in front of the other put your right foot left in front of one another keep your back straight, cards held tightly to your chest. And all the rich ones live without any meaning and the best ones live without too much feeling and you just can’t catch a break without a little abuse. My lazy blue dream keep it to yourself I was caught in the middle of a fucked up crime scene clinging to myself Every time you come around I get a little unwound I get to feeling like the world is crumbling down and I can’t seem to let go of you now- but I never want to see you again.

And I know my body’s worthless half the time and the other half it feels it’s hardly mine. And when I go home I get this crazy feeling like I lost it on the way. And when I wake up, feels like I’m barely breathing, like I’m choking on the day. But I just just can’t escape another day without it- with my hypochondriac ways. I broke it, I bought it. And with the tick tick ticks in my hands my bloody heart is pounding it’s forgotten how to stop. You broke it, I bought it. But I just can’t escape another day without it- with my hypochondriac ways. Could you find a pill to save me? Doctor knows what Doctor gave me well.

Stranger 04:15
Hey Stranger, I know you well I know you better than yourself I know the way you fold your body (and I hate this) but I’ve been watching you now yeah, I’ve been watching the way you hold your face the way you clench your fingers in the dark. I am not myself at all, so could you forget about it now? Hey Stranger, I guess it was time for you to go I knew you better than you know, knew you better, (and I’ll leave you)- but you’re a part of me now yeah you’re a part of the way I hold my breath the way I find your stories on my skin. Hey Lovely, I guess it was time for you to go I knew you better than you know, knew you better- and I’ll break you. I am not myself at all, so could you forget about it now?

Wishing Well 02:55
In a little dream I fell into the wishing well (oh my God) In a little dream I fell into the wishing well wish me well. Come to find that I got lost while I was sleeping was carried away, woke to the sound- can’t feel my feet on the ground see I was running from the ghost that sinks inside of me tearing the paint down from the wall waiting for something to fall. In a little dream I fell into the spider’s den (oh my God) In a little dream I fell into the wishing well wish me well.

Velvet 02:08
Give me all velvet please give me all of your purple and gold tell me all that you need and I’ll give you empty promises. You just do what you’re told. Give me all velvet please I am not your God but I want you to follow tell me all that you need and I’ll give you empty promises.

Peaches 04:07
I’ve been down I’ve been down at the bottom I’ve been down at the bottom because I can’t function like I used to Jack and Jill have gone and lost their minds. You’ve grown up you’re out back planting peaches you’re burnin’ up in sunny beaches because you have found you love convention and you need a stable kind of life. But rewind girl Take another sip from the bottle steal another kiss from your Mama because things don’t happen like they’re supposed to and you need a different kind of life. Oh no- I only wanted to destroy you Adelaide I have the cards I haven’t laid them down. I’ve been down I’ve been down at the bottom I’ve been down at the bottom because I can’t function like I used to Jack and Jill forgot to pay the rent. You’ve grown up You’re out front selling lemons I’m in bed with the tremens because I can’t function like I used to ever since your body went away. Oh no- I only wanted to destroy you Adelaide I have the cards, I haven’t laid them down. You’ve grown up You’re out back planting peaches You’re burning up in sunny beaches because you have found you love convention. I’ve been down I’ve been down at the bottom I’ve been down at the bottom because I can’t function. lalallalalalallalalalallallalalalalallalalalalalaaa You smile like a ghost but you’re a little bit higher I’ve been around but I am just a bit tired Throw me away and I am just an admirer Throw me away and I’m a creep I’m out back counting sheep. You smile like a clown but you’re a little bit meaner I’ve played the fool but I am just a bit cleaner Back in my memory everything was much sweeter Back in my memory-I digress.. I always was the mess.

Regrets 03:32
How can I explain all the nothing that remains you laugh like your father trapped in frames of time. How can I forgive all the lives that I have lived I’m not happy to see you now that you aren’t mine. And it’s all the same Always the same way back to roads we used to know and where they go they lead to roads where only ghosts can find you. I will always love you Could we take the wrong way home? No one can escape all the actors and the fates the whisper behind you counting every move. Nothing can be said all the books that we had read they’re screaming your name now “God what have you done” And it’s all the same you say you swear you never could regret this now but nothing’s changed as the days past I’m trying to forget how I will always love Could we take the long way home?
