I wish I could pray I've that it keeps the demons away I wanna believe in something good I wanna believe I wish I could But I don't know Where do we all go When we die? I wish you would stay With you here it keeps the demons at bay I wanna believe in us But I'll always fuck it up 'Cuz I need to know That I can go on my own I wish that I could Have a mind like a normal human should I wanna believe in me Is that really a possibility? Or am I just Ash to ash, dust to dust I want to believe in anything I want to feel anything but this I want to believe in anything I want to feel anything but this

I'll keep it fun I'll play it cool I'll be the one you're dreaming of I'll make you want me I'll make you want me I'll make you want me Then I'll leave It's what I do Went to a show the other night Saw you smile under the streetlight You put your arm around my back You made me want you You made me want you You made me want you But she's the one you love So I won't need you Need you by my side I'll tell myself that I will I will be just fine And everyone alive is lonely Lonely when they sleep So I will dive down Dive into the deep I kept it fun I played it cool Now you're the one I'm dreaming of Now you're the one I'm dreaming of Now you're the one I'm dreaming of

Trash Bb 02:26
I'm a trash baby I make that hard to see I hide my face under vaseline So the light reflects off me I'm a garbage kid Underneath your garbage lid Put me out on the curb today Soon they'll take me far away I'm not the woman that you think I am Before you find out I'll take all I can But for tonight can you just hold me tight And keep on holding me til morning light I'm a trash baby Oh, why can't you see? They'll burn the dump down with gasoline Then I'll nevermore be seen

Swear to God 03:00
Swear to god I'm ok Promise you the sad's not here to stay Swear to god I'm ok Twist your pinky with mine Promise you that I'm doing just fine Twist your pinky with mine Today I'm alive Went to bed to try and hide from it all Then the sun came this morning burning my eyes So I guess today I'm alive Swear to god I'm ok Promise you the sad's not here to stay Swear to god I'm ok Cross my heart hope to die Promise you I'm not trying to die Cross my heart hope to die

Trust No Man 03:57
If If I stay busy I don't have to think I am feeling restless I am on the brink If I go out I'm not alone Bug bit under cortisone I trust no man who doesn't frown So i swim until I drown Swim until I drown I trust no man I trust no man I trust no man I trust no one I trust no man I trust no man I trust no man I trust no one I cannot be certain Why I smoke cigarettes Is it to feel alive Or to feel near death? If I go out I'm not alone Bug bite under cortisone I trust no man who doesn't frown So I swim until drown Swim until I drown They all say that you can't do it alone But they don't know what it was like at my home Learned it hard, I smiled good, I did my time Now I know not to take anybody's hand but mine I trust no man I trust no man I trust no man I trust no one I trust no man I trust no man I trust no man I trust no one I trust no man I trust no man I trust no man I trust no one I trust no man I trust no man I trust no man I trust no one

Champagne 03:18
You and I were born in the same sign They all said that was a bad sign Still I asked if you would keep time Did you mean all you said I got champagne breath that I'm wanting to hide Got a real sore throat trying to swallow my pride Got ten million things I've been meaning to do Got a big broken heart from loving you I feel so fucked up right now Just wanna go and get fucked up right now Desperate for you to know somehow That I meant all I said I got champagne breath that I'm wanting to hide Got a real sore throat trying to swallow my pride Got ten million things I've been meaning to do Got a big broken heart from loving you You will always the neon sign That shines so brightly, then goes dark in time But you should let me go, I'm no safe bet I've been running from you babe since the moment that we met I got champagne breath that I'm wanting to hide Got a real sore throat trying to swallow my pride Got ten million things I've been meaning to do Got a big broken heart from loving you Got champagne breath that I'm wanting to hide Got a real sore throat trying to swallow my pride Got ten million things I've been meaning to do Got a big broken heart from loving you Got champagne breath that I'm wanting to hide Got a real sore throat trying to swallow my pride Got ten million things I've been meaning to do Got a big broken heart from loving you

Therapy 01:59
I rode my bike to therapy I went so fast down the hill I push my feet into the steel And I think about you We're going roller skating tonight Surround ourselves in neon light We'll push our feet into the floor We'll make out against the bathroom door And I think I love you I know I love you

I luv u 03:53
I don't trust the good So I'm digging for the bad Even when I'm happy I'm always feeling sad You've shown me sweetness You've shown me trust When I'm stuck in my mind There's no room for us I wanna try I wanna try I wanna try with you I wanna try I wanna try I wanna try with you I love I love you I love I love you
