Track Name: My Heart
My heart
Cracked in two
Coughing one of her lungs out
The yoke she carries is too heavy
With what was one her creamy cement core
She plasters herself together
Her legs harden wide open
Nothing but a filthy whore
She carries herself as high as she can
Giving herself no room to breathe
She coughs up dirt on her shallow grave
And spits on the prison cell she leaves
Her claw breaks through the shell of her former self
Emerging as a newborn in a world of grief to her unbeknownst
She struggles to stand and scampers vivaciously about
An idea she entertained but never carried out
For the first moment in my life,
I decree
I will think before I speak
I will think before I act
I will rectify the past
I will love myself for I am made to last
I will care for you as long as you will it
I'll always love you for I am no longer blind
My hands no longer cover my eyes
I feel you beating triumphantly inside
My heart
Track Name: Spent
I spent the sun
Instead of all my quarters
I made a face
Similar to this dreaded place
I'm not afraid
Of the sharp words they'll always say
But hey, hey, hey
I'm not afraid
Of anybody else but God
Well say, hey
I am the jack of every trade
I will kill, kill myself
Before you'll ever see me
Before you'll ever see me
Before you'll ever see me
On the ground
I'm not afraid
Of anybody else but God
Well say, good-bye
To the weakest link that is your life
My mind is fried
Track Name: Shannon
There's a girl named Shannon and she talks so fine
She has a halo on her head and a devil by her side
There's a girl named Shannon she has dark brown hair
She has the deepest eyes and a menacing glare
And I died
Oh Shannon
Oh Shannon, Oh
Oh Shannon
Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh
Oh
There's a girl named Shannon and she's one of a kind
I love her so much she sends chills up my spine
There's a girl named Shannon and she has nice hips
The way she sways when he punches her lips
I died
Oh Shannon
Oh Shannon, Oh
Oh Shannon
Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh
Oh
There's a girl named Shannon and she loves a boy
His name is James, he treats her like his toy
There's a girl named Shannon and she smells of smoke
She has, bruises on her neck and cuts on her throat
I died
Oh Shannon
Oh Shannon, Oh
Oh Shannon
Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh
Oh
Oh, oh
Oh, woah
Oh, oh
Ooo, ooo, ooo, ooo
Ooo, ooo, ooo, ooo
Oh Shannon
Oh Shannon, why
He's your heroin
Let me be your heroine
Track Name: Growing Up Is Hard
You say you know her like the backs of your hands
Is that a wise crack or you asking for a second chance
(heh heh)
I'm tired of those shrewd thoughts
They brew up storms that can't be stopped
Why do you continue this hatred or is it love
It's an uphill battle
Fear seems to dabble inside my lungs
Inside my lungs
Instead of running away
I'm thinking it's time to pierce my shame
My discordant shame
Track Name: Wars
There are wars in this world where our boys turn to men
They defend our country like we defend our friends
By killing each other, a gun in one hand
They sing stupid songs about the government's plan
There are battles to fight in our own backyards
With sticks and toy guns
The fort is your garage
We don't know a thing about living
Relationships are jokes
We're riding down the street with cards in our spokes
There's a fight in the lot between the jock and the man
Who would stab him to death if given the chance
We all scream profanities
Jeering with shame, I turn away
When that first blow stings
I will forever sing
Anger is bliss
Better than happiness could ever bring
Track Name: Set Yourself Free
There is a lack of morale in me,
and with the blizzards in my arteries
I believed that I would die, believed that I would die.
I shriveled up in agony after being stabbed a thousand times.
I never had a chance, no no.
A few seconds later not a single eye was dry,
my old friends gathered to watch me die.
Some where in the world there is a man on the streets.
He wears tattered clothes and begs so he can eat.
He wanders around the city walking aimlessly about,
when he finds a sip of alcohol you'd better bet he'd chug it down.
With nothing to care for and no one to see,
freedom is much better when you obtain it ironically.
Like when you reach the bottom of the bottle and you don't hate yourself,
You might feel some resentment when you throw up on the ground. Somewhere close a man will die of obesity and strife.
Because he's sad and alone and lacks ingenuity.
It's my personal responsibility to shove self-respect down his throat. Teaching him priorities and maybe how to gloat.
Talking to strangers is the best thing you could ever do,
you'll never meet anyone because they'll never talk to you.
You hang your head down low staring at the floor,
counting each tile god your life's a bore.
SET YOURSELF FREE
Track Name: Fake Up
Cake yourself in make up
Talk about my scars
Your blemishes are too deep
Look at where I am
Where you are
I'm a fighter
I'm a survivor
And I'll fight 'til the end of time
Douse yourself in perfume
You smell of gasoline
Beauty's no virtue
Not even in your dreams
You're a liar
Snakes tongue through your teeth
You're a briar
Bush sticking to everybody's feet
And when you catch fire
I'll take a front row seat
And when you catch fire
I'll take a front row seat
I won't be your Moses
I won't pour water on a weed
You're not gonna be regal
Dressed in your finest boutique
Baby you're hopeless
It's not in the prophecy
Baby it's over
You're nothing but ugly and mean
And when you're a leper
I'll take a front row seat
When you're a leper
I'll take a front row seat
I won't be your savior
I won't die for your sins
I'm not even your maker
I don't control the god damn wind
Baby it's over
You can have fun in hell
Hanging with Satan in his ninth circle and tell
Him your stories
Not like he'll care
You can just leave now
Now, now, now, now
Track Name: Dear Mr. Spider, Sincerely Your Favorite Weapon
I stare into those lower case eyes
As you look at mine a sea of green
The tip to my ball point pen
A period at the end of every sentence you've said to me
Said to me
The misfit that you fell in love with
How can you love a girl like me
I'd go through the astral and back
I'll take everything bad and give it back
For you to come home again
For you to
Tell me the truth about when
We sat in those lots
And spent hours and hours
Trading Pokemon cards
Under that black blanket
That I got at good will one time
Got at good will one time
Got at good will one time
But Mimi don't you know the truth
I'm gonna steal that hoodie
Right off of you
Remember how we kissed back then
We were so young and spent
All of our time outside
Spent all of our time outside
Spent all of our time outside
When we climbed mountains
And scaled our way back down
Scaled our way back down
Our way back down
Just to buckle ourselves together
In the back of that car
In the back of that car
In the back of that car
Just to play a show and then
Just to learn to play guitar
Just to spend time with each other
Just to eventually fall in love
Just to fall in love
And then to fall in love
I'm sorry
I'm sorry
That I didn't fall soft.
