Track Name: Aroma
Find your own way home
Until I see you again

I'm a newborn disease: take your heart and your knees
Well, the calcium burns like a thousand degrees
I can never replace what I missed on the first taste

Find your own way home
Until I see you again

I've been losing myself and the bottle is empty
I should only take one, but that won't be much fun
I can never replace what I missed on the first taste

Find your own way home
Until I see you again

I've been stuck on rewind. There's no room for my mind
I don't care what it says, I'm not taking that shit
I can never replace what I missed on the first taste
Track Name: Lucky
Well, I rolled the dice at half past nine
'Cause I was trying to make you mine
Let's find a place far from here
So wild, face my fear

I'm lucky
I'm so lucky, yeah

Well, I found some dirt to lay on you
This won't be all I do
I'll fix your hair and make you grin
When you're tired, I can be your sin

I'm lucky
I'm so lucky, yeah
Track Name: Cursed
I want one more bite from your pearly teeth
You're the only reason that I want to breathe

Do you like what I'm doing?
Like my stupid sound?
Everything's better when you're around

I need love, lies, a little more sex
I need a better disguise while I do the rest
I need pain, joy. This isn't a test
I need love, lies, a little more sex

I am nature

I want two more hits from your stupid fist
It would be so nice if I was on the list
(All right)

Do you like what I'm doing?
Like my stupid sound?
Everything's better when you're around

I need love, lies, a little more sex
I need a better disguise while I do the rest
I need pain, joy. This isn't a test
I need love, lies, a little more sex
Track Name: Brandy
I know a girl with a secret
She wants to fit in so bad
She's got the eyes like an angel
Her skin is pale and so real

Her name...

I have so many confessions
So tell me where do I start?
I need some motivation
I just don't know what I'm doing

I'm not afraid of the future
I'm not aware
I can't believe what I'm saying
I just don't know what I'm doing

Her name is Brandy
Track Name: Compass
Pucker up and kiss me
Suck it up and miss me

It's a damn dirty world for a person like me
I'm just a simple little boy, floating
Salt in your wounds burn holes in your hands
Drive nails through your eyes. Are you happy?

Slow down and push me
Slow down and rush me

Why is this hard, so hard to believe?
I'm your catch of the day, choking
Schemes in your head make plans to invade
You'll never win a thing because you're broken

I am the compass
Look
Track Name: On the Surface
On the surface I look normal
But underneath I'm not so well
I can't keep myself so simple
I don't want the satisfaction

She tried hard to be my savior
No one needs another traitor
She said I'm sorry, but it's over
That's okay 'cause I still love her
Track Name: I Want to Know You
I'm back from the edge now

Somehow I went days without a meal
Breathing smoke in to heal

I'm back from the edge now

Somewhere I found a room to hide my wounds
Reaching far up seemed doomed

Ooh, I want to know you

I'm back from the edge now

Someday I will see the same faces
Occupy dull lines and parking spaces

Ooh, I want to know you
Track Name: Rattlesnake
I don't have my skin on tight today
'Cause I've been out all night just chasing prey

Please
Show me teeth

I don't need my mind to show my face
I've been trying hard to fill the space

Break my head and break my eyes
I should learn to sympathize

Bring me more blood
'Cause I need it
Drag me through the mud
'Cause you want it

Break my head and break my eyes
I should learn to sympathize
Drain my skull and take my hand
I should teach you how to stand
Track Name: Digital Window
Nothing ever gets solved
Thoughts explained, no resolution
Everything is wrong
Maybe change your statuses again

It's there
I don't want it to be, but it's there

Seems like every six months
We fuck
Every single boyfriend
Knows what's going on
All of us are evil?
Maybe you're just impatient
Better check your inbox
Message me inanities

It's there
I don't want it to be, but it's there

Every word's a demon
Burrowing its way in
It's all small talk anyway
No one's really saying anything

It's there
I don't want it to be, but it's there

Put down your fucking phone
Refresh
Put down your fucking phone
Go out
Put down your fucking phone
Do something
Put down your fucking phone
Be a person

God damn it
Track Name: Test Drive
She said "run" so I would run
She said "shoot" so I would grab my gun
She said "cool" so I was cool
She said "jump" so I would find another pool

Burn me down

She said "go" so I would go
She said "stop" so I would never really know
She said "love" so I would love
She said "die" so I would never ask why

Burn me down

You should know better
You're playing with fire
Track Name: Tragic
Hi
How are you?
It's been too long
And you look so good

So take it down another notch
Show me how you move
Take it down another notch
Show me what I've been missing

Hi
Where are you now?
Lost in the fog
And you must be cold

So take it down another notch
Show me how you move
Take it down another notch
Show me what I've been missing

It's so tragic to watch you fall down
