Track Name: Learn to Dance
Maybe, Baby you could take me
You could date me

Learn to dance like me

Fuck me, please fuck me
I need a motivation
Fuck me, please fuck me
I need a motivation
Maybe, Baby you could take me
You could date me
Lately baby I've been the one
Who's been needing saving

Learn to dance like me
Learn to dance like me

Fuck me, please fuck me

Track Name: Spite
So you think I'm suicidal
So sick tired so damn subtle
This is why I sleep on gravel
This is why I will not grovel

Step on the floor hit the puddle
So sick tired so damn subtle
Plastic whores while I mumble
My complaints while being humble

I was working my third eye
Scratching, wedging, poking
Cleaning, washing, soaking
Seeking out the moments

And I thought that would like it
So I never stopped my trying
When it finally opened
I couldn't stop it from crying

They've legalized the problem
To keep the masses happy
We're all watching blue screens
My foots the only one not tapping

To the beat of a beat off media
Friendly conversation
So sick tired so damn subtle
(my) father told me there would be trouble

So you think I'm suicidal
So sick tired so damn subtle
This is why I sleep on gravel
This is why I will not grovel

Step on the floor hit the puddle
So sick tired so damn subtle
Plastic whores while I mumble
My complaints while being humble
Track Name: Youthful
I need a conversation
A burning sensation
Addicted but reliable
Addicted to my youth

Yes I saw it coming
I heard the violent drumming
Strong enough to fight it
Not enough to win

The army has disbanded
Due to backlash candor
A stake straight through my heart
And we'll take the other vitals

With drugs that we enjoy now
And a life that isn't bad
Despite our attempts at it
And the constant let denial

Yes I saw it coming
No I didn't care
Yes I should have warned you
No I didn't care

Should I sing it loudly?
Though I couldn't say it
Despite the fact it matters
Despite the fact it counts

Everyone around me
Is a little left of center
And everyone around me
Has left me in the center

The world is getting smaller
The hole is getting deeper
And if God does exist now
He doesn't build hills steeper

Than the one I'm climbing
To the tune of self-destruction
If anyone can hear me
I'd like to fall for seduction

Yes I saw it coming
No I didn't care
Yes I should have warned you
No I didn't care
Track Name: A Line of Coke on my Bedside Table
The whores of this plain old city
Act real dumb but be real pretty
So I'll take my Mum's advice
Be real drunk but act real nice

A line of coke on my bedside table
This whore is drunk but somehow able
To pick herself from this laundry floor
Her boyfriend knocks down this hotel door

Point his gun in anger
Too stoned to feel danger
I'm in luck today
Realizing nothing

A line of coke on my bedside table
This whore is drunk but somehow able
To pick herself from this laundry floor
Her boyfriend knocks down this hotel door

I've never been so damn depressed
Though I know you're all impressed
Visions of a victim something
I'm not no one I am nothing

Point his gun in anger
Too stoned to feel danger
I'm in luck today
Realizing nothing

Point his gun in anger
Points his gun in shame
Too stoned to feel danger
Too stoned to feel shame
Track Name: Beauty with a Pitchfork
Her feet planted on the ground
Means it’s not safe
Darkened as I’m silenced
As she drapes me in her chains

Stuck down in my thoughts
I haven’t spoke a word
If she didn’t leave me speechless
She’d tell me not to speak

Ye-ah
Ye-ah
Ye-ah
Ye-ah

She left me on her table
Like I did with cocaine
Bruised and battered down
Drunk but in pain

Stuck down in my thoughts
I haven’t spoke a word
If it is really over
Why am I still chained?

Ye-ah
Ye-ah
Ye-ah
Ye-ah

Yes I want it and I see it
But I know that I can’t
Yes I see it and I want it
But I know that I can’t

Yes I see it and I want it
But I know that I can’t
Yes I see it and I want it
But I know that I can’t

Ye-ah
Ye-ah
Ye-ah
Ye-ah
Track Name: Depression is Self-Awareness
I feel like I don’t deserve it
Put it aside but never hurt it
I’ve had tea but I do no want it
Take my mind and chemical work it

Now it’s started why would I stop it
It’s not full until I’ve topped
Put it aside but never feed
Because I hate me

Kill Me
Kill Me
Kill me
Kill Me
…I’m broken

I’m all bent up out of shape
Crooked hips and narrow airways
Fucked up time in 4 4 time
Fucked up lines with stupid rhymes

My mind is like a cancer
It spreads thoughts through my body
Thoughts of self-destruction
Thoughts of self-pity

Depression Is…
Self-awareness
Didn’t they tell you?
Didn’t they say?

Life is just a virus
Spreading through my dead body
Causing all this pain
Self-pity

Kill Me
Kill Me
Kill me
Kill Me
…I’m broken
