Track Name: No Obligation
uh ok
hi um
kay

just do what you want
you have no obligation to make anyone happy but yourself
you'll never make complete sense
no one will see the whole picture but you
so you need to support yourself
you matter.

yep... ok
just do what you want
just do what you want
you don't need them
uhhhhhhhhhmmmmm
follow your intuition
how the fuck are you gonna make it through the day without saying what you got on your mind

just do what you want
just do what you want
you gotta do what makes you happy
just do what you want
just do what you want
you gotta hold on to yourself before... ummm...
just do what you want
just do what you want
i obviously don't care
just do what you want
just do what you want
just do what you want
just do what you want
just do what you want
just do what you want
Track Name: Great Mood
everybody tells me not to be a creep when i write about you on my blog
i'm not trying to justify my behavior, i know that it's wrong, but

i'm in a great mood tonight
oh man oh man
i'm in a great mood tonight

when i get off the phone with you i can't help but do a little dance
ok it's inappropriate to say but being friends with you is a super nice substitute for romance but um

i'm in a great mood tonight
oh man oh man
i'm in a great mood tonight
i'm in a great mood tonight
oh man oh man
i'm in a great mood tonight
Track Name: Super Deformed
i'm sorry but this is called a shield
its a tool i use to mark the distance between us because i don't know you
and so many times before even from the other injured parties i've been stabbed and hit and clawed at because i don't know

its easy to when you close your mind off
to try and hurt and control other people
to get what you think what you want
without even realizing what you're doing
that other people are also people
and not dispensers or enablers
and it's not their obligation to please you at all

i can't imagine a love between two people
that isn't anchored or isn't shackled, that isn't centered around control
i can't imagine a love between two people
that isn't anchored or isn't shackled, that isn't centered around control

i'm sorry but this is called a shield
i'm sorry if you think that you belong my space and i'm being mean
that i'm being cruel by religating you to a place where you can no longer injure me again and and again
and if i knew your name man i wouldn't hesitate to call this song that
so all your future employers could know exactly where you stand
i'm not afraid
and discussing pain isn't weakness
and being injured isn't weakness
that's just what i'm trying to explain

i can't imagine a love between two people
that isn't anchored or isn't shackled, that isn't centered around control
i can't imagine a love between two people
that isn't anchored or isn't shackled, that isn't centered around control
Track Name: Joyfulthought
it’s all your fault
i feel amazing
you make me feel like a real fucking starfire
i'm super dizzy
i might be flying
i wanna crawl under my covers and just stay there
i know its weird
to say you changed me
but things have been really hard for me lately
i don’t need anything
just when you talk to me
i can’t believe anyone would ever be that nice to me

but would it be alright
would it be ok
would you be my joyful thought today
would it be alright
would it be ok
would you be my joyful thought today

your favourite colour
how did you get here
please be my friend altho I’m a just huge orange mess
i'm fucking melting
maybe sweating
i fucking love it when you treat me like a princess
you rock my world
you’re so powerful
it really really makes me feel like I’m dreaming
i’m like water
i’m like whatever
its too embarrassing to say how I’m feeling

but would it be alright
would it be ok
would you be my joyful thought today
would it be alright
would it be ok
would you be my joyful thought today

i always feel so weird
i always feel so alien in my skin
it feels surreal
it feels so strange
to not be afraid to let you in
Track Name: Strength
you should sing on
and hope the notes will keep coming
you should wish for
the strength to keep running
and you should wish for the confidence to love yourself too
while you're asking for that stuff you're not gonna get
while you're asking for stuff that you'll have to pull out of your own head

because you can hold on to your strength
or let it slip away
because you can hold on to yourself
or you can fold yourself away
you can curl up in a ball until there's almost no evidence
that you ever existed at all in the world
but the world won't go away
and none of that will help you escape

so just slip away to
a microchasim of your own back yard
because you can always stay where you know where your weaknesses are
but that's not a promise to you that life wouldn't still be hard
because life finds a way to be hard anyways
because life finds a way to be hard anyways

it's ok you're not wounded
you're just slower than the rest
it's just a matter of time
even when time seems like a test
of your mind and your value
it's ok to be upset
not that you need me to tell you

it's ok you're not stupid
that's just a feeling that you get
the world's never really ever worked
in a way that made sense
things can fall into place
or they'll crush your body or your head
not that you need me to tell you

you should sing on
