Normalize 04:15
Say sorry now Right now Say sorry now Right now Hitting her up might feel real good 
She’ll tell no tales, you know she should You’re putting it out there to see what sticks She’s a goddamned whore 
You’re broken bricks Caught you wanting Caught you saying please Say sorry now Normalize and gain control 
Just slow down and just be nice And please don’t make a fuss Just slow down and just be nice And please don’t make a fuss Messages thrown around like stones Broken pride, not broken bones Little girl you’ve really done it now No one will believe you anyhow
2.
What Prison? 04:29
I wanna let go of all of these tangles And march right into the sea Thrash out at threatening figures And throw up bad memories And I'll erase all of those that did harm me Instead of realizing multiple flaws Massive congratulations spilling out of the devils jaws My mind miscalculated how females subjugated Masculine strength in numbers Don't let the boys slip under My mind miscalculated how males are subjugated Feminine strength in numbers Don't let the girls What prison Got ahold of me When I got more than I could possibly need I made a pile out of all of my fortunes It reaches up and topples over I prop it up with all my excuses What does the universe plan for me now I can't imagine ever succeeding Cuz being born was the ultimate sin Throw my hands up And I guess I know I'll never win
3.
You’re so mine I never pictured how I want you to be I always knew you'd give up completely My power's wonderfully disgusting to see Sink your head into my chest and now there's nothing to see You're so mine So Mine You're so mine Feel so bad I feel so good I got you where I know you should No leaving me I guarantee I got you where I want you to be So good So mine Your friends all wonder where you got to these days No need to worry you're in a better place I've got everything No need to escape And I'll tie you to the bed when you're no longer awake
4.
Afterneath 05:07
I made a list of all you’ve done wrong this week I swallowed it whole and wondered why I couldn’t breathe Let’s build a ship And load it with fear And I’ll punch a hole in the hull I can’t understand Why this always sinks Let’s all pretend That we can breathe Underwater Afterneath If you call for help then I won’t Have to admit that I need help too Shocked by disaster Confusing mistakes as just more accidents I told you I knew how to swim But I’m not sure when I learned There’s drowning people everywhere And I wish it weren’t my turn
5.
She's telling him secrets I'll never forgive She's haunting me nightly But I'm gonna win I'll conquer the mountain She'll fall to the floor Is this competition worth dying for? I disappear She pulls all the attention My heart is gone So why's this my reaction? Hey hey hey I know she's looking good Hey hey hey She's just misunderstood Hey hey hey She's shooting daggers now Hey hey hey I guess I'm gonna have to choose her death I pulled out her hair then I pulled out my pride I'm staring right through her And dying inside I'm stabbing at hearts when I should be building up ground Success is a construct And I have no crown I disappear She pulls all the attention My heart is gone So why's this my reaction? Hey hey hey I know she's looking good Hey hey hey She's just misunderstood Hey hey hey She's shooting daggers now Hey hey hey I guess I'm gonna have to choose her death Just hold on my love Cuz it's over Just hold on my love Cuz it's so It's so It's so Over Again
6.
I feel we’ve lost some ground But your money’s safe and sound I’ll play with all you’ve lost And choke you ’til you cough Let’s pave away our fears The trees were always near Have you no faith in man? He taught us all he can What we hate Is what we are What we are Is only complaints I can never stand these sights out loud You must always gather all these crowds Shocked until we find out all these crimes Dig your elbow into my spine In these violent times Oh these violent times Your lies are all the same Repeat for empty gain We’ll gorge until we explode And throw up our last hope
