Track Name: Insecurities
Insecurity is one of her many faults at least in her own eyes
From anyone else's point of view,
the only thing more beautiful would have to be the sunrise
but she's not very far behind

She stands perfectly imperfect
She breathes the rhythm of a song she's known all her life
She walks with an ocean kind of motion
She screams like the wind has set her free
for the very first time in all her life

As she travels through,
a caress of a flower within the forestry
so intricate and delicate
The only thing more beautiful would have to be the night sky
but she's not very far behind

She stands perfectly imperfect
She breathes the rhythm of a song she's known all her life
She walks with an ocean kind of motion
She screams like the wind has set her free
for the very first time in all her life

For a while now her goal is to live before she can figure out
the meaning of life
Track Name: Play Pretend
You're sleeping,
cold nights keeping me awake.
Repeating,
familiar questions come to mind..

Are you dreaming
of an angel on your shoulder?
please don't be afraid.
I have come to hold her,
when she feels uncertain.
reflect on your choices,
when you're too unconscious to
judge yourself too harshly.
what's a girl to do?

Push pedals,
throw your head back, trust in me.
light candles,
dip a finger in the heat.
play pretend, and be a queen.

But, that was the old you.
now, your brand new.
plastic figure, go on with your
practiced posture and smile.
you should reflect on your choices,
when you're too unconscious to
judge yourself too harshly.
what's a girl to do?
Track Name: Karmen
Could have sworn I mentioned that
I didn't want to have to say
I'd always known that you'd return.
Don't wanna see you.
Repetition tiresome,
I know you've got a lot to say..
before we get to the point
I'd like you to..

listen to that noise..
yes, baby its quiet.
could that be the sound
of all the fucks I give about your..

"I'm so sorry.
will you just give me
the chance to stay?
Please forgive me.
We are meant to be.
I've made such a big mistake."

Well, no fucking shit.
You're such a selfish bitch.
Please forgive my tendency
to speak my mind
when I'm fed up with
all of your bullshit.
Track Name: Day 2
This is torture
Let's run away already
They've infiltrated our space
Time to leave

I feel like I did on the very first day
Afraid to lose you
Afraid I might like day two
Track Name: Aquarius
Cutting strings.
fantasies,
that only exist in the time
too far to reach.

Opportunities,
never hurt.
Safe and sound.
To be loved
unconditionally is ideal,
and unreal.

This I know.

If I knew anything..
could ask anything of you...
I'd ask for everything.
I did only bother to,
Bare the water that
drains the life from your smile.

Push you farther away,
so I don't have to face...
anything.
Track Name: In Love
I would rather you touch me
while we are partly conscious
Trying to take you on while fully aware
is all too overwhelming

Why can't we just stop & stare for a while?
I would like some time to think
Is this real?

Of course this is reality
What else could it be when he is everything to me?
This feeling isn't going away
and it's because I'm in love.. Oh no
Track Name: I Don't Know
I don't know what to say
Deflected by my fear and shame
I know how I feel
It takes my words and takes its aim

Eventually arrived with too many questions
I'd spoken my mind, predicted consequences
For too long I'd paired with hesitation

I doubt anything could feel so much worse
"I don't mean to sound rejecting but honestly,
Eventually arrived without my expecting.
Lower down the bar of what you were hoping for-
We can't- oh, we will never happen."
Track Name: Painting Forgiveness
don't wanna be the one to pick up pieces
from somebody else's mess
somebody else's problem
you're not my problem.
its not my duty to
mend your heart or save you...
see, I can imagine exactly
what's running through your head,
" how could she be so cruel,
so careless, for the lost souls of the south?"
how about I
paint a picture for you?
a girl and a boy,
its in the fall.
dark and tan skin,
not very tall.
he's got brown eyes.
she's got them too,
but not the same hue.
something in his
makes her think
this could be the ride of a lifetime.
he's unfaithful
so face it,
it's an inevitable end.
she was oblivious
to someone she believed to be her friend.
he feels pity for her,
and so she reels him in.
well, I'm an unforgiving person..
screw me over once,
don't wait for me to come
back again.
this is what I
- this is what SHE -
believed in.
a couple of months
down the road
after the smoke has cleared...
she looks beside her
and sees the same pattern unfolding.
but his eyes are lighter
the hues still the same.
deja vu,
no surprise.
how does she explain?
she's been here before.
been there before.
and, two days is just not
enough to ignore he's been..
unfaithful
so face it,
it's an inevitable end.
she was oblivious
to someone she believed to be her friend.
he feels pity for her,
and so she reels him in.
well, you should be an
unforgiving person.
if someone the screws you over
don't you dare ever go back again.
I don't want you to make the same mistakes
that I did..
that she did..
that we did.
if he's been unfaithful,
face it its an inevitable end.
but don't let your heart
make you too oblivious
to see and do what's good for it.
and don't feel pity for them,
they were never truly your friends..
but, you should try to
be a forgiving person.
if anything,
that's the thing
that kept me sane
in the end.
Track Name: Constellations
I wasted all my time
just looking for a sign
You reached out for my hand
but doubt turned my back

Could you show me how I'm supposed to love?

I waited far too long
His lips did something wrong
He smoked a cigar- put it out on the arm
I traced constellations on his chest with

How will I love after this?
Where will we go from here?
Track Name: Colder
a black fire in your heart
you'd been a liar from the start.
but, honestly I don't have
1 ounce of sympathy for you.
truly, my intention
isn't to offend..
or bring tears to
those pretty eyes..
its just that I despise
all the choices that you've made..
I guess we all have choices
we have to make.. So..
I promised myself
to never end up like you did.
but once I'd seen it with
my own eyes
to your surprise
all I had to say
was I had never been more
disappointed in you.
isn't it your role to be
somebody I could always
turn to?
I hope you weren't expecting
a pat on the shoulder.
sure, my methods of revenge
could be considered heartless..
but, what you did
will always be
colder.
I noticed that this little
sort of frenzy has begun.
I've watched the past
a million times..
given the chance to do
what never got done..
without hesitation.
Cuz surely your intention
wasn't to give up..
or break every promise
anyone could ever think of.
you know you're all I think of
these days, and those days
my name was
the only way to spell love.
but, I promised myself
to never end up like you did
but once I'd seen it with
my own eyes, to your surprise
all I had to say
was I had never been more
disgusted..
with anyone who's ever walked the earth.
you're a destructive..
and you don't deserve
either end of the people
that you've come between and hurt.
I hope that you're aware of
the future that you hold..
you'll be sad, alone, ugly, and
cold.
Track Name: Alone
The world's off my shoulders now
The end has passed me by
Only I've come to realize that what people say is true

Before I can be truly happy with another,
I must be completely content with the thought of being..

Alone
How long has it been since I've been inside my own head?
Alone
A different voice makes every choice which turns into mistakes instead
Alone
You say time is something necessary to find yourself
Alone
is what you'll end up being, and that's what you get for leaving me alone

Considering the past and everything we've put each other through,
I don't see how letting go would be the way that we conclude our time
Our very short time together

What was the point of it all?
To build and watch forever fall
To be on separate sides of the fire
Just know that every ugly little liar ends up..

Alone
How long has it been since I've been inside my own head?
Alone
A different voice makes every choice which turns into mistakes instead
Alone
You say time is something necessary to find yourself
Alone
is what you'll end up being, and that's what you get for leaving me alone

Oh, the first couple of times
I truly didn't mind being alone

Alone
How long has it been since I've been inside my own head?
Alone
A different voice makes every choice which turns into mistakes instead
Alone
You say time is something necessary to find yourself
Alone
is what you'll end up being, serves you right for always leaving me alone
