Track Name: Easy To Love
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)
Track Name: Heartsparkle
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
Track Name: Friends
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)
Track Name: The River
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
Track Name: Repetitions
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
Track Name: We're All In This Together But You
We met
Thought you were cool
I'm such a tool

It's all on me

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

To be around
To be around

Track Name: You Deserve Better
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?
Track Name: Glitter
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
