Track Name: Eyelids
Shut the hell up
It's all too loud
This incessant noise won't stop
I can't turn it off
or look away
If it's not here
it's somewhere else

When everyone tries to speak at once
My voice begins to drown
suddenly my brain shuts down
And I can't run away
and I can't make a sound

I can't
Think for myself anymore
When everyone's so loud
They're screaming, yelling
Over nothing at all
I can't
Think in my own words anymore
When everyone's so loud
They're screaming, yelling
Over nothing at all

They always say open your eyes
But it's safer to shut them

Because the inside of my eyelids
is the only place I'm safe
And when I open them


I can't
Think for myself anymore
When everyone's so loud
They're screaming, yelling
Over nothing at all
I can't
Think in my own words anymore
When everyone's so loud
They're screaming, yelling
Over nothing at all
Track Name: Behind Glass Walls
You're a fucking loser
And everyone knows
You pick a mean fight
But can't handle the blows
that life has thrown in your way

You talk about me
Like I don't hear
You try to fight me
But I have no fears
You're baby games
I don't play

Don't you think that I see right through you?
Behind glass walls and the stones you throw my way

You're someone dirt low
With no respect
For the boundaries
I've already set
You're not welcome here
Get out of my way


Don't you think that I see right through you?
Behind glass walls and the stones you throw my way
I'm not without sin to cast the first stone
But don't piss and moan
When this girl has her day
Track Name: We're Legally Not Allowed to Talk About It
Innocence of the world
That once shone bright through fragile eyes
Faded away
With every word
So did your increasingly transparent disguise
Slowly rang me dry
Suck the blood from every vein
as far as I'm concerned
It's practically a compliment to call you insane

There was a shift (I refuse to go back)
You've lost your grip (Fuck your power trip)
My mind's mine now (The cat will meow)
The dog will have its day

You chewed me up
You spit me out
But you've not seen the last of me
The more aware I grow
the less deceptive your antics seem
I plot my revenge
Knowing damn well
You're not worth it
But I can't help it
To watch the light drain from your eyes
As the innocence has left mine

There was a shift (I refuse to go back)
You've lost your grip (Fuck your power trip)
My mind's mine now (The cat will meow)
The dog will have its day

All I want is to see you get yours
You can't take back everything you've said
Can't kill me I'll go down swinging
Pull the knife right out of my back
And slash your neck

There was a shift (I refuse to go back)
You've lost your grip (Fuck your power trip)
My mind's mine now (The cat will meow)
The dog will have its day
Track Name: I Won't Die
Subdue my anger like the quiet follows the storm. You treat me like an icicle: melt me 'til I'm warm. Now I'm fried. Flip me over on both sides. You try to burn me. Yeah, I'd like to see you try.

But I won't die. I won't die.

The sun will come out and eventually so will I. Out of my shell that you forced me inside. You try to lure me out so you'll be satisfied. When I turn around, stab my back and cut my pride. I let it bleed out.

I won't die.

Like the flower during winter, I won't die. See the ice patch getting thinner? I won't die. Coming back every spring and ask the sun to revisit life because I won't die.
Track Name: The United Shakes of America
My throat is closing tight but my eyes they got that shine because you give me butterflies. Floating above the grey matter of my mind. If I saw you today, it would take away the pain. But what do I say? How do I say?

Do you ever get the shakes over things you can't explain?
Do you ever lie awake contemplating for the ages?
If it's not too much to take, maybe some time if you're free, if it's for the both of our sakes, won't you lie awake with me?

Is sexual frustration just somethiing I invite? If you want to lie awake, would you promise not bite? Only in the right places. These thoughts they cause me stress. Don't you recognize my symptoms? And there's something I'd like to ask.

Do you ever get the shakes over things you can't explain?
Do you ever lie awake contemplating for the ages?
If it's not too much to take, maybe some time if you're free, if it's for the both of our sakes, won't you lie awake with me?

Me and you.
You and me.
This could be everything that you wanted it to be.

Do you ever get the shakes over things you can't explain?
Do you ever lie awake contemplating for the ages?
If it's not too much to take, maybe some time if you're free, if it's for the both of our sakes, won't you lie awake with me?

Won't you lie awake?
Track Name: Strictly 80s Joel
Being around you is like being sick. Oh, I'm sorry. Was I being too much of a bitch? Forget me, I'm trying to forgive but I still haven't quit.
And I can't quite understand what is your master plan. I can't figure out why I stick around. You lie and you pretend. You tell me you're my friend.
I can't figure out why I'm here at all.
All of my headaches! All of the blabbering that I can't take. I'm not close to perfect but at least I'm not a fake. You're so ready to show off but there's nothing to see. You care more about what everyone thinks than you do about me.
And I can't quite understand what is your master plan. I can't figure out why I stick around. You lie and you pretend. You tell me you're my friend.
I can't figure out why I'm here at all.
Why don't you shut your mouth? Why do I stick around?
Why don't you shut your mouth? Why don't I go?
No te entiendo. Estas mintiendo. No te entiendo.
No te entiendo. Estas mintiendo. No se porque estoy aqui.
And I can't quite understand what is your master plan. I can't figure out why I stick around. You lie and you pretend. You tell me you're my friend.
I can't figure out why I'm here at all.
(No entiendo. Estas mintiendo.)
