House Plants 02:10
Guess that’s called progress / Pretending that I didn’t want to / Pass out on my face / Take all my money and run to New York / It’s not much, if at all / But I never mind being shit out of luck / It’s getting late to be too young / I can only play dumb / When I can’t afford rent / Guess it should be cheaper / But I don’t want a roommate / I just want some house plants / Even if I kill them / They cannot respond or / Tell me that I’m shit at / Taking care of myself / People look strange / After you love them / Your hair has grown long so why won’t you cut it? / Your shirt says something like / “Virginia is for lovers” / But New York is for drunk motherfuckers like you / I’d rather huff some fucking glue / Than be out trapped in Brooklyn / Chasing after old men / I’d rather be a rock star / Maybe Billy Corgan / Be the Smashing Pumpkins / At the very least be clever / Pitchfork would review me / Even give me two stars / I could take it lightly

Titty Logic 03:14
You’ve got such a pretty face for someone that I cannot stand / I wish that I viewed you as more than just some beauty model for a makeup ad / And you’ve got such an ugly mouth for someone with such a pretty face / You ought to rinse it out from all the dirty shit you always say / You waste my time every day / Telling lies that no one ever hears except for me / Everyone around here knows I’m vain / You’ve got such a way with words for someone with such an ugly mouth / I always hear you say my name I wish you’d spit it out / And I know that I am just a kid / That’s disconnected from all of it / And maybe I am wrong / And maybe you are too / I wish I didn’t hate myself more than I hate you / Why won’t you look at me? / Why can’t you look at me? / It’s like crashing your car while adjusting your seat belt / Why won’t you look at me? / I’m standing here outside your bar / Oh no / Guess I’m feeling low / You’ve got such a way with words for someone with such an ugly mouth / I always hear you say my name I’d wish you spit it out / And I know that I’m just a kid that’s disconnected from all of it / Well maybe I am wrong / And maybe you are too

My head is a mess it is sinusitis? / I don’t want to have to get antibiotics / Pseudoephedrine’s great if you like to take uppers / I fear I might die from just another cup of coffee / And my words start moving too quickly for my lips I am sweating through my shirt and everyone can see it / I should stay inside today / ‘Til the weather changes or I’ve found a new body / And I don’t take care of this one / I chug the whole ocean / It can’t be enough / To make up for hydration I have lost / The alcohol is pouring and it will not stop / I’m reaching for something I cannot attain / My friends are successful and I am insane / And I should clean my car out but I do not want to / I should pay my rent on time but I am a waitress / My head is a mess it is just the depression? / Overwhelming thoughts and my means of deflection / I’m trying to be better but it’s looking rough / I could be alone so thank fuck I’m in love / And here I sit back while the world it is crashing / Since everything’s a mess / Why don’t you take some action? / If I go to school will my job be important? / My mom she thinks so but I mostly ignore her / I think I’m falling apart / I chug the whole ocean it won’t be enough / To make up for hydration I have lost / The alcohol is pouring and it will not stop / I’m reaching for something I cannot attain / My friends are successful and I am insane / I should clean my car but I do not want to / I should pay my rent on time / But I am a waitress
4.
You don’t want me to move into your apartment / What if I scream too loud and wake your roommates up? / Just like I do when we argue / Why can’t I just settle down? / I will never feel at home if I am only freaking out / You can hardly relate / I can understand / I want to be more independent / Buy a coffee table full of books I’ve never read / I know it’s difficult and I could use a hand / So please don’t leave me hanging out here on my own just to pretend / You could tell me anything you wanted to and I would listen / Caught me being human / Separate me into seven billion other people / You don’t want me to move into your apartment / What if I scream too loud and wake your roommates up? / Just like I do when we argue / Why can’t I just settle down? / I will never feel at home if I am only freaking out / You can tell me anything you wanted to and I would listen / Caught me being human / Separate me into / seven billion other people

My shoes are wet I should’ve worn my rain boots out tonight / I soak the wooden floors when I walk in how impolite / There are no bands here just some solo acts holding the mics / I wanna leave I feel so anxious / It’s flooding I shouldn’t drive / The odds are looking better but my future’s feeling bleak / I bet $500 I can’t make it to 30 / But I could live forever / Like I’d never know / The kids will call me cop for wearing sneakers at the show / I can feel the ceiling leaking / Wrapped between two sheets beneath it / I could stay here if you really wanted / Another notch onto your bedpost / Just like you always promised

Snake Song 02:19
Spit venom in my face you are a snake / Run so far from me / Reptile without legs / Say I’m gonna quit / Instead I just stay / Why do I? / It barely pays / To wage a war / Against misogyny / These walls are paper thin / I’m yelling from exhaustion I’ve procured from being / Told that I don’t know anything at all / You’re looking through my shirt to see my bra / I’m looking through the shit you say / I cannot be so sure I should be so small / If I am just a frog I’ll learn to crawl / You say I’m a toad / Say I’m a slut / Spit venom in my face / You are a snake / Run so far from me / Reptile without legs / Say I’m gonna quit / Instead I stay / Why do I? / It barely pays / To wage a war / Against misogyny
7.
Too Late 03:29
Back door that you’re always leaving open / A pack of cigarettes you always seem to smoke when / It’s hard but you want it to be harder / It’s over but it felt more like it’s under / Well / Is it too, too late for you, too late for you, too late for- / To ask if I am still, if I am still, if I am still- / Oh no, well look at me now / I’ve got do or die S-S-N-R-I F-U-C-K / I’ve got medication magic potion pumping through my veins / Are our memories so poisoned from the truth? / You hold that cigarette as if it cannot burn you / And it’s hard but you want it to be harder / And it’s over but it felt more like it’s under / Well / Is it too, too late for you, too late for you, too late for you? / To ask if I am still, if I am still, if I am still- / Oh no, well look at me now / I’ve got do or die S-S-N-R-I F-U-C-K / I’ve got medication magic potion pumping through my veins / Is it too, too late for you, too late for you, too late for- / To ask if I am still, if I am still, if I am still- / Back door that you’re always leaving open / A man you asked me if I’d ever have a go with / The day I left and all the time we spent apart / Just like you gave me with your artificial heart
8.
You said she’s gonna be a doctor / Well I’m gonna be a rockstar / Maybe an actor / While you’re tending bar / To losers in boat shoes / With tribal tattoos / And daddy’s credit card / For jägerbomb shots / She’s gonna be a doctor / Well I’m gonna be a loser / For the rest of my life / And you ought to put a mirror on your ceiling so you can jack off to yourself / And you better think before you keep talking / You’re making a fool of yourself / Are you stuck in the dirt? / You can’t forget your past / How you did it with her / You only want me when it’s scarce / Oh you think I’m shooting for the stars / That I want someone with an IMDB / Cause your DUI wasn’t enough / But really I just wanted you to give a fuck / And you ought to put a mirror on your ceiling so you can jack off to yourself / And you better think before you keep talking / You’re making a fool of yourself

Pat 02:27
Hey everybody thanks for the congratulations for doing all the things that I said that I’d do when I was a kid / I guess I’m grown just for today / So I go home with a smile on my face / Wondering where have you been what are you doing / Do you want to come to celebrate? / So I barge through your god damn door and you look me in the eyes as if you’re fucking blind when you say / “I don’t love you anymore” / So what do I do now just pack my shit and go get out and pretend that I didn’t wish that I was Dead just for a minute / Or a million / Or seven fucking billion / Does your pain end soon? / Do you reap what you sow? / Will I ever eat again before my rib cage starts to show? / So what do I do now? / What do I do now? / What do I do now / That you’ve got me figured out? / I will barge through your god damn door and you look me in the eyes as if you’re fucking blind When you say “I don’t love you anymore”
10.
Left my toothbrush in your apartment / And I guess it freaked you out / I freaked out when I left it / But I’ve gotta clean my mouth / Of all the things you mean to me but I could never spit out / Like I love you but I’m afraid it's too soon to say / I got love bites on my arms / The only bruises I’m not ashamed of / I got you inside my head / The only constant thought I have / Is that I want to- / And I like your eyes / How they match your shirt / But I hate my thighs they're not as thin as hers / And if you put your hands on me / It’ll be okay / Amphetamines to stay awake / And lock the door to sleep at night / I know that I’m a mess / I hear it every single day / You’re afraid I am too gay / To like you but I’m straight / To the point you are my everything / We could move to Philadelphia / We could stay in bed all week / You could meet my parents / Or you could just leave me / Before things get too serious / I would understand / I don’t wanna lose a dog to a man / Amphetamines to stay awake / And lock the door to sleep at night / I know that I’m a mess / I hear it every single day / You’re afraid I am too gay / To like you but I’m straight / To the point you are my everything
11.
Who’s gonna make me laugh? / Who’s gonna make me laugh? / I’ve been trying to act like it doesn’t affect me / But really you’re bringing me down / Though I bet you’ve seen me running around / Who’s gonna make me mad? / Who’s gonna make me mad? / I lost my best friends to some monster inside / Are there any good people around? / Get your hands off me / I’m not afraid to cut you out anymore / I still love you the same as before / Wish something this pretty could stay / Who’s gonna make me laugh? / Who’s gonna make me laugh? / I’ve been trying to act like it doesn’t affect me / But really you’re bringing me down
