Easy To Love 02:49
I'm easy to love and hard to keep loving You're in my heart but my head is too troubling You can see You love me but you're scared of me Try not to be the worst of all my doubles You deserve more than to worry 'bout my troubles Don't worry The way I worry about me I've got a love and I've got to write it down I've got a love and I've got to write it down (Got to write it down, got to write it down, he's got a love and he's got to write it down)

Heartsparkle 02:36
You have filled our heart with sparkles Ignore those who ignore you They're so punk rock patriarchal They don't know you wrote the lyrics You're a cherry pop to them They don't listen 'cuz they fear it Here I go every move is on display Just undress me weigh my sins Here I go I'm the object for your gaze Judge my everything but I don't fear you When we met her face was painted When she sang I dropped two feet I thought the city was tainted Passing over such a power Leaving stages cold and white Trading her years for their hours Here I go every move is on display Just undress me weigh my sins Here I go I'm the object for your gaze Judge my everything but I don't fear you Illustrate these incantations Purge the horror from your mind Witchy wisdom fills these pages Taking time to best detail them Spreading support in the lines Let us never forget Salem Here I go every move is on display Just undress me weigh my sins Here I go I'm the object for your gaze Judge my everything but I don't fear you

Friends 03:22
We built this bridge to burn it down It isn't you, this is just who I am Oh keep me as your concubine Oh keep me like a portrait of a man When you hold me close and tell your secrets This doesn't feel like something friends should do And I get the funny sense that you expect too much of me It's just a little crush It's just a little touch And lately it's all just a little bit too much It's just a little touch It's just a little crutch We built this bridge to burn it down You're vengeful and you're not afraid to lie Oh keep me as your concubine Oh keep me in your ever-growing serai Tonight please keep me in your thoughts (It's just a little crush It's just a little touch And lately it's all just a little bit too much It's just a little touch It's just a little crutch)

The River 03:17
Went to the DIY punk show, yeah I try to kid myself the zeigeist would change My cocoon city decays around me Everyone I know leaves :( Think of all those wasted summers In some humid basement staring at a screen Waiting for a rip to the dimension Where I was born in NYC The more I dream the less I seem to fit in with reality I wish I could... Turn these tears into a river Point this vessel to the stars Pick up all the hopeless people You know who you are Riding on our hopes forever But I'm right here I'm right here Are there not still worlds inside you When you're collapsed in a heap in my empty room Too depressed to think or to do your art You're still the one who stole my heart You drew a portrait of two lovers Spilling tits across the page in psychedelic lines And babe that's all you And all you can do Oh I know you'll go far The more I dream The less I seem to fit in with reality I wish I could... Turn these tears into a river Point this vessel to the stars Pick up all the hopeless people You know who you are Riding on our hopes forever But I'm right here I'm right here

Repetitions 03:55
We met Thought you were cool I'm such a tool Or such a fool You were quite mean I didn't see It's all on me It's all on me You had a girl She was mean to Thought she was cool That's just my thing It's all on me it's all on me It's all on me It's all on me Why can't I see When someone's bad To be around To be around They throw up flags But I don't watch I've got my eyes Fixed on the ground I just repeat It's all on me It's all on me It's all on me BUT IT'S NOT ON ME IT'S NOT ON ME IT'S ALL ON YOU IT'S NOT ON ME I know you're not like them and it's been hard Hard for us both I know it hasn't helped, it hasn't helped The way I have coped

Why does everybody always let you down? Darling, you know that You deserve better The fraying ends of a torch set alight A setting sun Somebody deserved better When we cry do we cry the same tears? Will we write the same songs? Will I always resent you? Are the stars above me still the ones above you? Would it be the same as if I never met you?

Glitter 08:45
There's nothing to be afraid of now Sweet and strutting Broken on the beat Cold tremors glisten What was inside of me A hole so great Only sound can pass through That is all that is in me Tell me, what is in you? I feel like such a fool I came on so strongly Hung up on some New York punk rock band All alone I'm crying Moments with nobody Sure don't tell me who I am Why can't they just listen? Why can't I just be? I'm tired of people deciding for me How to draw my body To show the silence so deep That turns my best days into waking dreams I feel like such a fool I came on so strongly Hung up on some New York punk rock band All alone I'm crying Moments with nobody Sure don't tell me who I am There's nothing to be ashamed of now But girls like me Find it hard A million voices Wild Hearts Sequined Dresses False Alarms All We are is All we are
