Track Name: Everything In My Life Is Burning
If we’re lucky our paths won’t meet
I’m not prepared for our awkward greet
Breaking up and splitting in two
Does know no one know what I’m going through?

Hometown anchors
Memory makers

Time heals but it don’t forget
I can’t escape your emotional debt
Another night fully impaired
I tell myself we both didn’t care

Hometown anchors
Memory makers

You picked a bad time for returning
Everything in my life is burning
Track Name: Her Polyphony
Polite stalker, you’ve found me out
Don’t know the facts but I get the gist
And everytime I turn around
It’s getting so hard to resist

Lonely ever after
Lonely ever after
Lonely ever after all

Now you got me wrapped around
Your finger with another kiss
Don’t know how you keep me bound?
But I’m guessing it’s just like this

Lonely ever after
Lonely ever after
Lonely ever after all

Her polyphony
Recruits me in monotone
Now she’s into me
My head went to the ozone
Track Name: Cruel Fidelity
When did you decide to break my heart?
Now look at me, I’m back to the start

Sing to me in cruel fidelity
Every song is haunting me
When I hear your cruel fidelity

I should’ve known, certain as sin
When you risk it all, you know you just can’t win

Sing to me in cruel fidelity
Every song is haunting me
When I hear your cruel fidelity

Tripping over my feet someone put there in my way

Sing to me in cruel fidelity
Tear it out and let it bleed
When I hear your cruel fidelity
Track Name: Larger Than If
Baby, could we share a light?
To guide us through the night
Waken by the sun
Under the covers as one

Who do you think of when you think of me?
Who are you missing, when you’re not missing me?

Baby, where did it go wrong?
In our breathless song
When will you make the move?
On the last teen in June

You put your heart out there
It was taken without a spare
You think that she don’t care
Really, she’s always there

Baby, my sweet baby
Track Name: Post Meridiem Pinups (On The Loose)
Post meridiem pinups on the loose
Doing what they like, doing what they choose
Making exact change for the deranged
They can be nice only if they’re contained

Time of the has been
You’ll need more than aspirin
To get through this nightmare
There’s nothing to compare
If you’re lucky at all

Post meridiem pinups on the loose
Coming for your pills, coming for your booze
Making exact change for the deranged
They can be nice only if they’re contained
Track Name: Blacked Out Widows
Every night, after the kids are in bed
They remove their halos from the tops of their head
Screening stares and breaking news
Deciding which bad habits to lose

Take me where the girls all smoke
But don’t tell them that my heart is broke
Spoken to by the spoken for
Still queen forevermore

There’s drinks to be had in allotted time
They’re past their bedtime but not their prime
Taking steps and finding heir
I feel the guilt when I sit in her chair

Take me where the girls all smoke
But don’t tell them that my heart is broke
Spoken to by the spoken for
Still queen forevermore

Blacked out widows
Acute angels
Blacked out widows
Won’t you stay a little bit longer?

Someday I hope to be like you
Head on the pillow right before 2[a.m.]
Classy like a champagne buzz
With all that sass, just because
And let us not forget- pilot or patriot
Cleanse yourself of the vice
Early to bed, early to rise
Track Name: 12th Cycle Freakout
Tripping with the strippers
Drifting towards the left
I’ve muted all the sirens
But still I’m going deaf

12th Cycle Freakout
For no one
12th Cycle Freakout
Get it done

Hunted by the creep chick
Hanging by a thread
Fell for a chief trick
Hatchet in my head

12th Cycle Freakout
For no one
12th Cycle Freakout
Get it done

If you don’t believe me
Try and find me now
Circular emotions
When the time allows

12th Cycle Freakout
For no one
12th Cycle Freakout
Get it done
12th Cycle Freakout
It’s just another blackout
12th Cycle Freakout
Get it done
Track Name: Movie Girls Near You
Hey cat, jump back
Bring out the claws, it’s time to attack
Hey babe, I’ll be your slave
Won’t even ask how you’ll behave

Movie girls near you
What were they supposed to do?

Hey friend, it happened again
Caught you there so don’t pretend
Feline, it’s her time
I hear the bells on her collar chime

Movie girls near you
What were they supposed to do?

How close could they be?
Back lit on a silver screen
Time’s up they moved on
There will be tomorrow but for now they’re gone
Track Name: Living With Online Witchcraft
You won’t hear this anyway I know
There’s no reason to explain at all

I know I never was the one

Here’s to moving on
And all your problems gone
Resetting for your new next con

You can’t hurt me anymore or less
This silent witness probably suits you best

I know I never was the one

Restaging all your fear
After your memory’s clear
Like I was never here, at all
Track Name: Aluminum Virgo
How did it happen?
It caught me by surprise
For some little reason
It only took a few tries

Now and then I’ll see you and I fall just a little bit
Subtle movements closer and we fall just a little bit

Lipstick troubles denim demise
The ban is lifted for all who comply

Now and then I’ll see you and I fall just a little bit
Subtle movements closer and we fall just a little bit

It never was explained
How these feeling can’t be contained
And how they’re meant to trip you up, confused

The simple terror of compromise
Turning into restless nights
Talking out the do’s and don’ts, amused

Now and then I’ll see you and I fall just a little bit
Subtle movements closer and we fall just a little bit

Reigning beauty and passion in your cries
Now and forever will none of the rules apply
Track Name: Baba Diddy Baby
Stop a minute baby won’t you please stop and listen to me
You don’t know the misery and heartache you've been causing me
After all baby you're leaving me in misery

Since you been gone baby all I ever do is cry
Won’t you come and dry these tears from my eyes
If you come back you know you'll make satisfied
Track Name: Covered In Blue
Girl you’re coming up fast
Don’t you know it just won’t last
Girl you’re on my mind
How do you get there all the time?

Don’t you know you’re the one I’ve waited for all this time?
And now you said that you can’t wait this long

You said I’m holding you back
It’s probably best I’m what you lack
Now I’m covered in blue
Just a ghost without a clue
