Track Name: Lonely Again
They were simple but mean
Believed in things like astrology
Like they knew anything

Took your patience for granted
With all their kindly suggestions
Like they knew anything

Then you told me you hated everyone we know
So we made new friends and never felt lonely again

You said it felt good
To ditch our superstitions
Like they knew anything

They misunderstood
Thought that they knew better
Like they knew anything
Track Name: Felt So Young
Well, then there's this
Then there's everything else that hurts
What's there to get?
Why does it have to mean something?

When will I feel grown up?
How long's it been something I want?
When have I ever felt so young?

Where'd I get the never to think
I had something to say?
When have I ever felt so young?
When have I ever felt so young?

Well, then there's this
Then there's everything that fell apart
What's there to get?
Why would I think it meant something?

Maybe I'll learn to trust that
It’ll turn out okay
Don't think I've ever felt that way
Don't think I'll ever feel that way
Track Name: (If Your Heart's) Still in It
You calmed me down
You called me out
Spoke slowly as you took my hand

If your heart's still in it ­ Oh, no
Think of me

You took me down
Bruised and battered, beat around
Say you love me, that you're my gal

I've been holding out for you
I've been calling your name
I just can't figure you out
I can't even remember your face
Track Name: Give It a Go
You said that you're bored
And you're lonely
That it's all my fault
If I worked at it harder
If I pretended I cared at all

You said that you're low
And unloved
That it's all my fault
If I worked at it harder
If I pretended I cared at all

Oh, then I'd give it a go
Being with you beats
Being alone

You said that you're bored
And you're lonely
That it's all my fault
If I worked at it harder
If I pretended I cared at all
Track Name: Know Our Names
Gotta know your worth
Gotta know what you're working with

Until they know our names

Gotta show your worth
Let them know what they're working with

Until they know our names

Gonna take what's yours
Don't leave without what you're after

Until they know our names

Gonna take what's yours
Let them know what you're leaving with

Until they know our names

All those lines
Come undone

Gotta know your worth
Gotta know what you're working with

Until they know our names

Gotta show your worth
Let them know what they're working with

Until they know our names
Track Name: Trying to Say
You wore a black wig
You had your collar up
I wore my dad's coat
Said it made me feel taller

You tied that ribbon
Wrapped so tight and proper
With your bright red lipstick
Wrapped around the bottle

Oh, you've been around
Yeah, you've been around long enough
I've been around
I should know better

I've been trying to find a way to say
I'm good as gone

You pull me close
Try to hold me tighter
To keep me from running
Keep me from running

You kiss me hard
You bite at my lips
To keep them buttoned
Keep them buttoned
Track Name: Keep It Coming
Stay out
Until they turn on
Every one of
Of these street lights

Spray paint
Bad graffiti
On every
Everything in sight

What makes you feel like...
What makes you feel like...
What makes you feel like you're in control?

"Don't care
Much for looking
Into
My future"

Make some noise
Start some trouble
Make sure they know
That you're alive

What makes you feel like...
What makes you feel like...
What makes you feel like you're in control

You told them to get ready
They're gonna, gonna get your best
Keep it coming, you keep it coming
Track Name: Cause of Cavities
Well, there's something about the way you move
Got my heart skipping to the beat
You said it's quite a nifty trick the way I can leave

So tell me something so sticky sweet it rots holes right through my teeth
When I'm not alone, well darlin', I wish I was

You get up just to adjust the knobs
Need a song to move your feet
Well, baby, I hope this can suffice your needs

So tell me something so sticky sweet it rots holes right though your teeth
You keep up late with a promise; "things are alright"

Made it home a little late
Because you like to take the long way
Said you'd keep me around for as long as I'll stay

So tell me something so sticky sweet it rots holes right through my teeth
If I can't keep you around, I guess that's alright

Made it home a little late
Because you like to take the long way
Said you'd keep me around for as long as I'll stay
Track Name: Breathe into Me
Said you missed feeling pretty
But you still tasted sweet

You breathe into me

Push my fingers through
Frayed tears in your jeans

You breathe into me

Started staying the night
Started wearing my clothes

You breathe into me

Made you feel less alone
When you heard me say your name

You breathe into me

Get yourself ready
Get yourself ready to go

Are you falling in love?
Are you falling in love?

You breathe into me
Track Name: Walking Away
Burnt out streetlights
Dress clings to your sides
You picked, you picked, you picked
It out for me

Take a drink from your glass
Let the words tremble out
You asked, you asked, you asked
for your man

You're breathing fast
As you drop your hands
You wrap, you wrap, you wrap
Them 'round me

But I
Yeah I
I'm just walking away

Make your way to my door
Knock, scream you want more
You'll wake, you'll wake, you'll wake
The whole damn 'hood

You switch off the lights
I let out a sigh
You say, you say, you say
Give in to me
Track Name: Haul Us Off
It's when we're alone
You confess to me
That nothing's wrong
It's just that
You're so bored
You can feel nothing

Won't float on
In urban ennui
Or punch the clock
It's not like we
Need anything
No, we don't need a thing

Let's quit our jobs
Take whatever we want
Make some noise before they call the cops

No suburban homes
No cul­-de-­sacs
Make some noise before they haul us off
