Track Name: choosing sides
from arms to arms
we travel high
here’s one side

we’re fading in
we’re fading out
we’re trading passion for comfort

from bed to bed
we travel light
such a lie

we’re fading in
we’re fading out
we’re trading passion for comfort

he’s on the left
I’m on the right
for tonight
I’m choosing sides
Track Name: pippi long stalking
little girl with your
plaited hair you will
wear him down you will
run him scared

better prideful girl
learn his lesson well
choose your weapon well
that umbrella’s gone

will this knife change his mind?
it’s true they’re beautiful when they hide

bigger girl with your
colored hair you are
just like little girl
you don’t wanna share

brighter violent girl
killing time and if
he won’t let you in
go on break it in

will this knife change his mind?
it’s true they’re beautiful when they hide
will this fight change his mind?
it’s true they’re beautiful when they’re
“all mine”

older girl with your
pointed words he won’t
claw and scrape his way
there is no other way
bind his hands and heart
plant your feet apart
drive your dagger down
spill him on the ground

so this is what love looks like
Track Name: flustered
got a new treat
it’s the same taste
watch it rot my teeth

flick the switch
the room goes dark
your bio warfare
shakes it apart
my pet pretender
wake up and play
wake up and bring it to me

here’s an old itch
got to hide it
or else scratch 'til I bleed

flip the switch
the room goes dark
your bio warfare
shakes it apart
my pet pretender
wake up and play
wake up and bring it to me

I cannot walk the straight-and-narrow
confined to light is a terrible thing
you will wait for the sound of my footsteps
and know you were fated to be
folding me under your motives
Track Name: you get one
hardest to shake
“you are overrated”
expert witness your artist
dissolve

bargain in place
call a chaperone
you’re pardoned

your criminal mastermind
is right on time

a different kind of
white knuckle weekend
your decade
dissolves

hardest to fake
we are over blaming
expert weakness
your charges (your charge is)

your criminal mastermind
is right on time
what if we make our escape
and it’s too late?
Track Name: smashed
I’m not kidding myself
that I could’ve saved you
cut my nails for the trouble
they never make me prove it

I’m taking the main roads
and haunting the habitats
it breezes like high school
like last fall and the years before

I’ll incite it like a riot
but I wouldn’t care to own you
shut your face you’ll unlock it
come back and finish what you started

I’m taking the main roads
and haunting the habitats
with bruises like high school
and whimpering, repeating

I’m driving the main roads
and everywhere pickup trucks
I’m straining my neck around
recreating the scene where they
smashed
the clocks
Track Name: the queen's dreams
my skull is an hourglass
I open my mouth
sand rushes out

we’re crazed in the night
we don’t want to go home
we won’t go home alone
to the piles of failures and sighs
and forgotten lines

in bed the film unspools
serves me right
stab me in the eyes

we’re crazed in the night
we don’t want to go home
we won’t go home alone
to the piles of failures and sighs
and forgotten lines

sweetest lioness
she is me: she must flee
take your filthy paws off my pride

slain and birthed again
we are green, we are green!
we’re paying the price for stifling envy

my hair is the blanket, the blanket
when we’re seeing red
you will comfort me then

we’re crazed in the night
we don’t want to go home
we won’t go home alone
to the piles of failures and sighs
and forgotten lines
Track Name: drop to drown
Julia will go when she does what she came to do
obsessed with goodbyes since her long-ago exile

it is just a test: to investigate the dark, to remain stainless
trying on deception like she tried you on for size

give in, get it out
she’ll tell you when you’re done

this is not a torch: this is an experiment
giving you her best, it left you unimpressed

alpha goes to waste: handsome and inhabiting her grey space
trying on invention like you tried her on for size

give in, get it out
she’ll tell you when she comes
give in, get it out
she’ll tell you when you’re done

avert your gaze
it’s overwhelming
what’s on her face
you’ve been withholding
a drop to drown
forget your penance
you’re going down, down
you’ll never surface
Track Name: art of war
the art of war
the blackest blue
I love it when
you call me out

heat don’t stay
or find the steadier flame
don’t talk!
hit the lights
shake all night

callous my tongue
it’s Eve’s new year
well, I don’t care
so quit holding out!

heat don’t stay
or find the steadier flame
don’t talk!
hit the lights
shake all night

"platonium vocabulaire”
yeah, I don’t care
so quit holding out!

heat don’t stay
or find the steadier flame
don’t talk!
hit the lights
shake all night
Track Name: roll yr own
count your blessings and
think you know everything
while I play “deluca” again
“buck up, buttercup,”
she used to tell me
each morning we passed in the hall

she had it in for me

I’ll relate it
you’ll forget it
you don’t have to stay out all night
you are my favorite
I’ll kiss you later
you sit collecting your thoughts

she had it in for me
but I haven’t been angry
since I saw her sleeping

in the backseat
on a ball field
my rosy cheeks were a curse
each one a treason
if it’s our little secret
well, then, half of it’s mine

she had it in for me
but I haven’t been angry
since I saw you sleeping

roll your own
Track Name: your checkmate's a loner
shaking the satellites from their hiding places
some collide
on my dime
we go our own way

tea time’s a nightcap
I’m already gone
your checkmate calls
loner

springtime the comets came we thought for sure
we’d aligned
but not that time
we go our own way

rocket twin showdown
I’m already gone
your sweet tooth falls
over

I spin you spin beside
Track Name: whiskey vs wine
standoff, stand down, who will blink first?
arms lengthing keeps me from saying it to your face
you mix the girls behind the scenes with bad advice from magazines
oh, I get it, and now you’re gonna get it

we’re whiskey versus wine
we are human so we stay we pull we ride we run
you could sweeten on the way down but I will burn

nightcap nightshirt proves troublesome
to “friendly” a.m. radio sleepover
well, all alone and wasting time with you is never wasted time
after midnight, milkshake on a mission

we’re whiskey versus wine
we are human so we stay we pull we ride we run
you could sweeten on the way down but I will burn

and we can’t apply “pearls before swine”
I’m not that precious and you’re not so unkind
so drink up and drown out the crowd and your doubt

carouse, consume, still I could not forget
what secret cookie fortune read
so when you see me dancing by, put the old flame in your eye
and please say it
you’ll never ever say it

we’re whiskey versus wine
we are human so we stay we pull we ride we run
you could sweeten on the way down but I will burn
