Track Name: Stick Close To My Side
i know i've been gone for a long time
i hope i didn't scare you
i went back to the sea
you know i do my best to entertain you
to hold my breath
to grit my teeth
in a way people dont often understand
but i know
they always think that im joking
it hurts my feelings
it my breaks my heart
im such a cry baby
from the start i loved to complain about myself

when your heart beats faster
when your legs give out
when you feel so helpless
now you think and now you know
i know

because things never go how you want them to
because every time i just pretend im talking to you when we're on the computer

please stick close to my side
please help me down
stay close to my right and let me be pathetic in your arms
stick close to my side
i really fucked myself
please just look at my eyes and let me think of something else
Track Name: 2
do you love television as much as I do
do you bury your head underground
do you swallow down cartoons
do you twist yourself back into a dream
do you love to eat all the blackness and leave
do you long to see some aspect of you
reflected back in the shape of something cute
do you ache to be something that never really hurts
or could at least hardly feel worse
than the thing in your skin
and the skin that it is
and the shape that it takes
do you long to be reduced to simpler shapes
do you long to be reduced to simpler shapes
do you long to be reduced to simpler shapes

if i can’t sit in seat 1
i’ll sit in seat 2
if i can’t be myself
i’ll share a body with you
if i can’t sit in seat 1
i’ll sit in seat 2
i get so scared
i never know what to do
if i can’t sit in seat 1
i’ll sit in seat 2
if i can’t be myself
i’ll share a body with you
if i can’t sit in seat 1
i’ll sit in seat 2
i don't even have a good lie or an excuse
Track Name: Weird Gesture 3
i want to
i want to see it through
pull it at the split end
i don’t know about you
if i kiss myself
if the thought becomes itself
do me a favor
you really got to hold me back
Track Name: I Don't Know What's Wrong With Me
i know i'm so distant
i can't quite solve it
y'know i love to dance
y'know i love to sing
y'know i love the sun
the air
you know i love mostly everything

but i have this shape in my mind
of this thing i want to do
i think about it all the time
i think about i and you
but it's alright
i know there's always a solution to these things
i'm just scared that one or two of them has you parting ways with me

but i just said what was on my mind
i don't know what's wrong with me
i just said what was on my mind
i don't know what's wrong with me

it's so easy to play
to waste the entire day away
without worrying about the world outside our bedrooms
it's so easy to talk to you
i have so much fun
at least together we can hide away from our problems

but i was just saying what was on my mind
i don't know what's wrong with me
i was just saying what was on my mind
i don't know what's wrong with me

but i just said what was on my mind
i don't know what's wrong with me
but i just said what was on my mind
i don't know what's wrong with me
Track Name: Tiny Fantasy
yeah i'm always thinking positive
yeah i've got fucking iron guts
yeah i've got a solution to every problem that i've ever had
oh yeah i've never fucked things up
i'm always so cool
i'm always super collected
i've got a plan and i follow it through because i'm just very motivated
Track Name: Umm
you can do it if you have to
even when no one on earth would want to
the day is heavy but you’ll pull through
you can even do it on your own

you might be cursed by peoples essences
and your brain will feed you messages
but you’re stronger than you weaknesses
you are stronger than you know

your place will consume and then deny ya
make you feel like sugar in saliva
it’ll jinx and hex and echo and ride ya
but it’ll still want you when you go

we’re so confused when we play this game
we’re all so so nervous and the same
but even when i see you write my name
it’s like a fog that i live below

i know
it so wrong
but I’ve been so wrong lately
i know
im so confusing
but i hope you’ll find it in you to forgive me

i can’t stop myself
even with my hands clamped over my mouth
I’m still dissolving into a slime
all the time when we talk
I’m so confused and turned on
I sort of feel like a sick idiot but i don’t mind
Track Name: Noneworld
i don't really care what we do
all i want to do is hang out
all i want to do is spend some time with my friends
i don't really care about anything
luckily
everything is super duper ok
but you know

if you had your own car
your car might growl like a lover
and you'll ache to be outside
maybe this year things will be a bit better in the summer sunshine
but you still have to put each brick on each brick
in the summer sunshine
but you still have to put each brick on each brick

get on
you know
all i can do is keep your body warm
get on
you know
my powers are weak in this form

its rooted deep like a wart
it runs a bit long in your skin
but you can never grow to be a part of it
although you might want to wear it on you like a lovers kiss
i know it's sort of hard to tell
it's hard to figure out your own self
it has to be you to give a shit
it's your own heavy arms that you gotta lift

get on
you know
all i can do is keep your body warm
get on
you know
my powers are weak in this form
Track Name: S.N. Morning
get packed up
make it a list if it helps
or keep a mental index
we'll always figure it out cos

i know
y’ know
i can’t barely lift my self
i know you’ve been twisting turning n all i do is stay
but everything is alright
everything is gonna be ok
i’ll just keep repeating that as i sit on my hands and be afraid

but everything knows
it'll all turn out
i'll sink to the ocean floor
but i'll figure things out

i know you don't want me to go
but you can't help but twist and turn and stuff
but with everything and all you know everything is going to be a little rough
and i know you feel it in your bones
all i know's i feel it in my bloodstone

well i know
there's always better ways to do things
but sometimes
you gotta hold your breath and just plow through things

get packed up
you have a long day ahead
i'm not a child anymore
man it's not the first time i've been humiliated but

i know
i know
i can’t barely lift my self
i know you’ve been twisting turning n all i do is stay
but everything is alright
everything is super duper ok
i’ll just keep repeating that as i sit on my hands and be afraid
but everything knows
but everything knows

well i know
there's always better ways to do things
but sometimes
you gotta hold your breath and just plow through things
i know
there's always a better way to sort of do things
but sometimes
you just gotta hold your breath and plow right through things
Track Name: Un-See-Through
you can
put yourself in somebody’s arms
or imagine that you’re doing it too
it’s true i don’t care if you’re mine
but i would love to belong to you
my body doesn’t ever feel real
except when its heavy and useless
you can keep every part of me if you can find some hidden purpose for it but

i don’t want to clutter your space
i’d never want to weigh you down
i’d hate to get in the way
i don’t want to bother you by sticking around
for too long
but everybody wants unachievable things
it’s not like you ever treated me badly
im just so scared to push you away from me

it's just me and my broken font
and i know it’s such a long long drive
i know i’ll never ever have anything i that want
but i hardly even mind
when i'm so confused
when i'm reaching back in time
when i finally find my strength
i need to keep it
i need it to be mine

i want to be your dog
i want to be your muse
i just want you to rest your eyes on me
i don't care what you do
i want to be your dog
i want to be your muse
i want you to make my skin feel
un-see-through
i want to be your dog
i want to be your muse
i don’t know how I feel but
i’m scared to be away from you
i want to be your dog
i want to be your muse
you always make my skin feel
un-see-through
Track Name: Sleepover With LadyDevimon
please keep your eyes on me
keep your eyes on me
keep your eyes on me
there’s nothing but us in this plane

keep your eyes on me
please keep your eyes on me
keep your eyes on me
together’s so nice in the darkest place

I’m so glad to have you here
i just want your undivided attention
please don’t shy away from my gaze
you’re in good hands
i’ll keep you safe

i know you’re confused
i know you’re afraid
please try to relax
it’ll be ok
if you want i’ll put my hand into your soul
i’ll take control

i know you’re confused
i know that you’re scared
i know you feel so empty still
i could make it so easy for you
you could be an extension of my will

please don’t look away
please don’t feel afraid
i know that / im different
i know our bodies are not the same
i know I’m a demon
I’m a devil
i’m a monster
but it would feel so great
i could empty out your pain
with my darkness waves

let me clear out your mind
you’ll feel just fine
every one / of your movements will be mine
i know that your body / feels heavy
but you’d be so weightless
me pulling your strings
lifting you
you’d know exactly what to do
i’d feed you the lines
you’d feel just fine
let me empty out your mind
its ok
