Track Name: OMG
my body is the enemy
i don’t feel the way I should
it always leads down an empty street
yeah it brings me nothing good.

oh my god.

my body is the enemy
i'm up to nothing good
i'm drinking till im empty
i'm pretty sure she would.

oh my god.

my body is the enemy
it leaves me when I’m just getting good
i'm tired of this empty street
i'm sleeping in a box of wood.

oh my god.
Track Name: I Swear
i swear, i swear i knew it all along
went upstairs when i knew that you had study hall
and i cared if you talked to the old man in the sky
so scared you would let me touch your body
and i wouldnt say no
no, i wouldnt say no.

and i was so full of shit
cross my fingers, clench my fist
picture myself inside her kiss
and fall asleep, you hypocrite.

lipstick, you looked worse than you ever did
so i said i had climbed so far over it
and i looked for an easier knot to untie
someone who would let me touch their body
and i wouldnt say no
no, i wouldnt say no.

and i was so full of shit
cross my fingers, clench my fist
picture myself inside her kiss
and fall asleep, you hypocrite.

i was the strangest of thieves
pick all the locks and then leave
to go home and fantasize bout the things
that i couldve had if i opened up that door
but that's not how i want it anymore

and i was so full of shit
cross my fingers, clench my fist
picture myself inside her kiss
and fall asleep, you hypocrite.
Track Name: Never Enuff
you stopped believing in god
so he stopped believing in you
told you to get a real job
those days in the sand are through
and he swears that he isnt mad
as you quietly let him down
its just he tried to believe you wanted him around
but all that you say now is

"i dont love you like i used to
when people talk i dont defend you
i tried so hard i paid my dues
but it was never enuff
i was never enuff for you."

well you made a new friend
and it tears him apart
no he just cant pretend
that youre not breaking his heart
and when he sees you out at night
he tries his best to pick a fight
but you'll never be his, and its time he realized
that nothing is alright, and say

"i dont love you like i used to
when people talk i dont defend you
i tried so hard i paid my dues
but it was never enuff
i was never enuff for you.
and now i dont love you like i used to
when people talk i dont defend you
all that shit you put me through
it was never enuff
i was never enuff for you."
Track Name: Last to Leave
you told me that you found her mirror
broken on the kitchen floor
it was then that everything got clearer
you made your way to the back door
and you got the most terrible taste
on the tip of your terrible tongue
you say, "who am i, what have a i done?"

is there no place else you'd rather be
no brighter lights you'd like to see
nobody noticed you fall asleep
the party is over, and you're the last to leave.

you told me you were feeling tired
when we walked into his hotel room
but minutes later you were wired
hanging out with you-know-who
and you were so naive
thought i was oh so green
but i know you and what you've done

is there no place else you'd rather be
no brighter lights you'd like to see
nobody noticed you fall asleep
the party is over, and you're the last to leave.

i told myself, "it's just a little fling.
she'll come around and come back to me."
but it's just as well, cause when we speak
it hurts like hell.

is there no place else you'd rather be
no brighter lights you'd like to see
nobody noticed you fall asleep
the party is over, and you're the last to leave.
you're the last to leave.
Track Name: LetsBSdTgthr
i woke up with a headache
the day just dont feel right
you went to take a shower
but lost your appetite
youre changing youre prescription
im barely getting dressed
im having trouble sleeping
youre feeling meaningless

you touch me when im sleeping
i kiss you on your face
and tell you that i love you
no you cant be replaced
i know you feel like crying
i'll hold you when you do
and if i feel like dying
i know youll hold me too

maybe its the changing of the seasons
yeah something with the barometric pressure
there really doesnt have to be a reason
lets be sad together
lets be sad together
Track Name: You Got Caught
you got caught
and im not shocked
im on fire
whether youre there or not

i cant speak
what i have seen
im so tired
of your make believe

you got caught
you spent too much
time in half-abandoned
parking lots

i was there
so young and scared
watched the movement
from beneath the stairs

im in luck
feels like i just woke up
the nightmare's through
and it was not enough
you're alriight
yeah you are fine
nothing's wrong
cause nothing matters
when you were lost
did you feel better
i understand
and im not mad anymore
Track Name: 18th Bday
18th birthday you dont like me
i was thinking alright i'll be
wide awake but never lonely
shield your eyes and touch your body

i dont mind
if its all been said
i feel fine
when youre in my head

in my dreams i see the future
ticking clocks to mark where you were
nothing's real and nothing matters
shield my eyes and think about her

i dont mind
if its all been said
i feel fine
when youre in my head
when youre in my head
Track Name: Unwell
you said you didnt wanna go, to the party
youre always backing out
you never hang around
said that it was getting late
youre getting sleepy
well its not past 1am
come on, i thought we were friends

so go to bed
or go to hell
i just called to wish you unwell

you wrote a song to tell the world, just how youre feeling
and you knew that i would hear
you had to know that i would hear
you never say it to my face, and its gets so boring
you write those stupid songs
bout everyone that did you wrong

so go to bed
or go to hell
i just called to wish you unwell

im over it
Track Name: Tangerine (Alternate Version)
tangerine
you're mvp on a losing team
acting as if you'll be 17
for all your life
and i heard you cry
when you were spitting into my eye
said its been eating you up inside
you up inside
and i know its hard to be alone
everyone is scared of showing people who they are
and i know everyone knows if you let them in they'll break your heart
but you are worthless if you're waiting
play it safe, yeah play it cool
but while you run away from everything
i dont ever envy you
change your heart
youre all alone and you know you are
say nothing matters and call it art
say what you mean
and i gave it back
my idealized version of the past
my fear that everything's meaningless
i gave it back
and i know its hard to be alone
but its harder still to let those feelings grow
tangerine, my little tangerine.
Track Name: All Eyes On You (Remix)
cross your fingers
youre a fraud
i never believed in what you want
18 was a pretty big year
you figured out yourself and why youre here
but i am not amused
what would you do without the attention
i wanna know have you ever really seen yourself
have you ever really heard yourself
have you ever really seen yourself
the way that everyone else sees you
why do you feel like you do
something she said got right to you
and youre left there feeling dumb
but if you act like a baby then youll get what you want
and i know i do to
what would you do without the attention
what would you do if all eyes werent on you
you stopped when you were 9
you never changed
you never changed at all
i wanna touch your face
your wrinkled skin
yeah act your age
