Track Name: Shame
Life is like a dream if dreams are boring,
I live for fantasy, surfing pornography,
my head floats above me disconnected,
I want my MTV, my ecstasy,

but when the feelings fade away,
I tell myself that Im OK,
but they found out,

I feel that shame, shame, shame
don’t you ever feel the same
running out of those to blame
but at least I know the name

tiny little choices made by tiny little voices happen,
quickly, quicker quickest now, just do it box it ship it out,
the longer these things start to linger, wrapped around my little finger,
narcissistic tenancies, they grow stronger with ease,

and when the panic starts to stain,
the choice is made without the brain,
but they found out,

I feel that shame, shame, shame,
don’t you ever feel the same,
aren’t you really glad you came?
to hear me whine and me complain,

and tho the panic’s setting in, oo,
and tho the feelings come again, oo, oo
and tho the panic starts to stain,
and tho the feelings go away,
and tho the panic starts to stain, its seeping out its seeping in,
and tho the feeling starts start to fade, its seeping out its seeping in,
and tho the panic starts to stain, the choice is made without the brain,
and tho the feelings go away, they’re seeping out,

but this time, this time, this time, yep, things will be different,
this time, this time, this time, yep, things will be different,
this time, this time, this time, yep, things will be different,
this time, time, time.
Track Name: Teeth Don't Fit Together
Teeth don’t fit together, like they did when you weren’t here,
I blame you for all my issues that aren’t crystal clear,
They look and feel so crooked, and every time I smile or chew,
makes me think about how all my thoughts are crooked too,

they don’t fit, they don’t fit, they don’t fit,
they don’t fit, they don’t fit, they don’t fit,
they don’t fit, they don’t fit, they don’t fit,
they don’t fit, they don’t fit, they don’t fit,

So grab the drills and pliers, sit me down and open wide,
its the only way to pull out what is stuck inside,
but now I’m deeply afraid, of the infection in the wound,
theres no telling what will happen if not treated soon,

treat it soon, treat it soon, treat it soon,
treat it soon, treat it soon, treat it soon,
they don’t fit, they don’t fit, they don’t fit,
they don’t fit, they don’t fit, they don’t fit,

Now we’re in hemostasis, give it time to let it mend,
theres no telling if this process hasn’t reached the end,
so give me penicillin, let the leeches suck me dry,
its my only proof, my something that you can’t deny,

they don’t fit, they don’t fit, they don’t fit,
they don’t fit, they don’t fit, they don’t fit,
they don’t fit, they don’t fit, they don’t fit,
they don’t fit, they don’t fit, they don’t fit
Track Name: Rope-a-Dope
I will never let you drown, but I will always let you down,
sinking we hold on to the skim, you will always remind ‘em of him,

but this is just, a rope a dope,
and I am just, tryna cope,
please just hear me out, don’t scream and shout,
you’re not trying to swim, when you reel me in,

you will never understand, so I will lend a helping hand,
I wish the very best for you, I am upset, I’m so full of sweat and my face is turning blue

the familiarity of the water over me,
I really felt that I could save your life,
even tho things don’t look good, we are just misunderstood,
and all the little fishes they don’t bite,

but this is just, a rope a dope,
and I am just, tryna cope,
please just hear me out, don’t scream and shout,
you’re not trying to win, when you reel me in,

the familiarity of the water over me,
I really felt that I could save your life,
even tho things don’t look good, we are just misunderstood,
and all the little fishes they don’t bite, they, don’t, bite,

And if you don't scream, I won't bite,
But you’re calling and you’re moaning in the middle of the night,
What did you think that I'd say, what did you think that I'd do,
Oh right, all the things that we're so used to,
some wounded animals, adrift out at sea,
if I hold onto you, you will hold onto me,
I will drag you down, you will lift me up,
Have you had enough
the familiarity,
Oh oh oh, oh oh oh,
of the water over me,
Oh oh oh-oh-oh, oh oh oh,
even tho things don’t look good,
Oh oh oh, oh oh oh,
we are just, we are just, we are just, we are just misunderstood
Oh oh oh-oh-oooooooooh-oooooooo
Track Name: Big Blank Box
I’m a big blank box, one that talks,
tell me what to say, wind me up, walk away,
Marguerita, whats in your head,
take me there, then take me to bed,
is this me? or is this you?
is this something normal people do? right,
you replicate, within my cells,
I’ll be your host, you can be my shell,
you can be, my conduit for love,
just reign it down on me from above,

and I’ll be the light of the world to all men,
that only works out every now and then,

Marguerite ah, what you need ah,
Marguerite ah, tell me what you need ah,
Marguerite ah, what you need ah,
Marguerite, tell me you need ah, oh

Im a big white screen, one thats clean
tell me who to be, I dunno any other rme
Marguerita, don’t go away
my friends are jerks I need you to stay
so they say you do it to yourself,
I’ll just blame everybody else,

I believe all of the things that you say
my stupid thoughts keep getting in the way

Marguerite ah, what you need ah,
Marguerite ah, tell me what you need ah,
Marguerite ah, what you need ah,
Marguerite, tell me you need ah, oh

I dunno, what I need,
(I’ll) comfort you, (if you) comfort me,
I dunno, what you need,
tenderly, one, two, thee, for, you I’d never leave, but,
my love, my love, got ingrown on you like a hair on your back,
my love, my love, got all puffy and sore, and covered in plaque,
if I pushed it all down, if I pushed it all away,
if I pushed it right out, then why did it stay did it stay,
yeah,
my love, my love, my love, oh no, oh no,
my love, my love, my love, oh no, oh no,
Marguerite ah, what you need ah,
Marguerite, tell me you need ah, oh

I’m a big blank box, one that talks.
