Track Name: Why Are You So Sad
Why are you so sad, baby? Looking down like that will keep your neck hurting and your back aching, and your gaze to the feet of the ones you love.

Why are you so sad, baby? Eyes well up with tears, and now your skin's red from the knives in your nail beds - and you gaze to the feet of the ones you love.

Why are you so sad, baby? "Ignorance is bliss," I know you've seen a man die, and now you're guilty that you're alive. (He keeps his gaze to the feet of the ones he loves.) You keep your gaze to the feet of the ones you love, the ones you love, the ones you love.

"I'll let you know how I feel - one of these days, one of these days."

Stay to the feet of the ones you love, the ones you love.
Track Name: Treat Me Like a Dog
Treat me like a dog,
Tell me that I'm yours.
Treat me like a ghost,
You haven't seen before.
Treat me like a public bathroom stall,
When you're sick and drunk pay no mind to it at all -

And treat me like a dog.

Treat me like a dog,
Condition and train me.
Treat me like a ghost,
To live is to detain me.
Treat me like a public bathroom stall,
Abuse me I promise I won't move at all -

Treat me like a dog,
And I will love you.
Treat me like a dog,
And I will love you.
Treat me like a dog,
And I will love you.
Track Name: Point of Light
I think I've been starving myself since my consciousness went live. And nobody ever noticed it, so it's just a part of my life. I think that you're easy, too easy to be around right. Did nobody ever tell you when you show up you're a point of light? You're a point of light.

It's my prerogative if I sip on gin in the day time. If no one ever notices then it's not making contention or strife. I love that it's so easy to be in sight of the knife. Did nobody ever tell you when you show up you're a point of light? You're a point of light.

One day he'll leave for the North sea, red scarf head to toe in front of me - covered in green, covered in snow. One day he'll find the truth in him - isolation head to toe inside his skin, covered in sun, covered in shadow.

One day he'll find the truth in him.
Track Name: How I Feel
"How do you feel?"

"I was ruthless in youth, shaking at the source."

"Like it grew in the tooth? Give me more."

"One of these days, like a sun ray's warmth, I will let you know how I feel. One of these nights, like a flannel blanket, I will let you know I feel. I'll let you know I feel, I'll let you know how I feel."

"...How do you feel?"

"I was a blue-eyed baby, crying from the instant that she made me."

"Happiness?"

"One of these days, like a sea urchin, I will let you know how I feel. One of these nights, like a mirror broken, I will let you know how I feel. I'll let you know how I feel, I'll let you know how I feel. Every single thing I mention was once somebody's suggestion. One of these days."
Track Name: Communicate
"As a child I would hum, and thought only I could hear it - until the day they told me, "No," because they couldn't bear it. And since then I've grown a bit, but I've never really felt with it - until I heard you communicate with me, baby. Baby.

I feel afraid when I stand my ground, I don't know how well I wear it. It's very easy to change my tune - I adapt before I even prepare it. And since I was born unfit, it didn't matter if I never did stick - until I heard you communicate with me, baby. Baby.

On the brink of death I see: I'm a cliff and you're the tow. Another life cast out to sea, even though I want I can't ever follow. And since now we are here, I don't need to say what you want to hear - so now hear me communicate with you, Ever-Blue. Ever-Blue."
Track Name: Chew Me Up
Got facial scars like he's seen something that hit his soul so he'd feel nothing.

"I bother you cause I like the way you feel, chew me up I'm a three-course meal. Chew me up." (It doesn't hurt that much.) "Chew me up." (It doesn't hurt at your touch.)

Looks at me with a cold stare, like he's an old man with black hair. And he goes down like a tall glass of milk cooling long enough to coat your throat with silk.

"Drink me up." (It doesn't hurt that much.) "Drink me up." (It doesn't hurt at your touch.)

And you may have made up your mind but, you're not gonna leave.
You said you want it, come get it. But you don't get a reprieve - you gotta come."

Little boy, I won't rush you, no. You're a darling when you take it slow. "Bother with you - you're a plate of meat. Best to take my time to eat." "Chew me up." (It doesn't hurt that much.) "Chew me up." (It doesn't hurt at your touch.)

And you may have made up your mind but, you're not gonna leave.
You said you want it, come get it. But you don't get a reprieve - you gotta come."

I know that you, you're able.
Put it down on the table, and chew me up.

(It doesn't hurt that much, it doesn't hurt at your touch.)
Track Name: It Doesn't Hurt That Much
You belong to me, you belong to me.

It's odd to know that I won't move on. I don't want to 'roll' - these feelings stay long. And when jealousy strikes, will I brush it off? No.

It's odd knowing that I won't be strong, gonna let it stay even when you're gone, and when we get close my heart beat will slow, yeah.

You belong to me (it doesn't hurt at your touch)
You belong to me (It doesn't hurt that much)
You belong to me (it doesn't hurt at your touch)
You belong to me (It doesn't hurt that much)

If I let it all out I'll be the same I always was. A fourth marriage, the means for divorce. And it hurts sometimes, but it sees through its course, yeah.

I won't show you my psycho side.
I could be honest but I choose to hide -
If I let you alone, you'll only come back into my life.
If I let you alone, you'll only come back into my life.
If I let you alone, you'll only come back into my life.

You belong to me (it doesn't hurt at your touch)
You belong to me (It doesn't hurt that much)
You belong to me (it doesn't hurt at your touch)
You belong to me (It doesn't hurt that much)
You belong to me (it doesn't hurt at your touch)
You belong to me (It doesn't hurt that much)
Why are you so sad, baby, looking down like that?
Why are you so sad, baby, looking down like that?
Track Name: Sweetness Turns Me Off
You can't tell at first sight - I'm a snake in the grass tonight and when you turn to pursue your flight your movements will give you away.

You can't ignore my poison - I'm a basilisk in a dungeon. It is locked from the outside, one long hall nowhere to hide.

My love is caught in a place where it's strange and rough.
My love is caught in a place where sweetness makes me scoff,
and I don't feel like changing,
I don't feel like changing anytime soon,
anytime soon.

When it seeps into your veins - you're on the ground, take your remains and drag you out to the field with me - get your blood on my body.

My love is caught is a place where it's strange and rough -
my love is caught in a place where sweetness makes me scoff.
My love is caught in a space where it can't be stopped -
my love is caught in a space where sweetness turns me off.
Track Name: Candle
"Can I tell you something? This was never easy. I still love you."

I was just in transit, I was always moving.
I was always moving, but super glued.
But super glued to my chair - to my chair, oh my baby,
to my chair, to my chair, oh my baby -
Audience, audience
is just watching all the dances done -

Watching all the dances done,
Watching all the dances done,
Watching all the dances done.

You were like a candle, and I was the lighter.
Needs a hand to help it - needs a thumb, a finger.
When the flame meets you, you get so much brighter.
And you dance the choreo - you make the room light up.
Once it's used, the butane, throw away the casing.
Buy another lighter, empty useless chasing.

Watching all the dances done,
Watching all the dances done,
Watching all the dances done,
Watching all the dances done,
But always, always doing none.
Watching all the dances done,
But always, always doing none.

"Can I tell you something? This was never easy.
I still love you,
I still love you."
