Track Name: Normalize
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
Track Name: What Prison?
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
Track Name: You're So Mine
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
Track Name: Afterneath
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
Track Name: Choose Her Death
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
Track Name: Violent Times
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
