Track Name: Call And Response
Just shut up yeah just shut up is that what I should do?
And pretend it's all okay try to not yell the truth?
Just ignore it walk away "don't give them what they want"
A call a cry an angry look a justified response
Change to pants and dye my hair do everything I can
To disappear against cement you couldn't understand
Its years of names and disrespect I won't shut up anymore
Its everyday and everywhere so loud you can't ignore

Stick to the alleys crash my car and never wear a skirt
Follow all the backwards rules and you will not get hurt
Its so messed up its not ok its really nothing new
Sunglass world I'm hiding in from you and you and you

Hold your breath and suffocate and bite your angry tongue
Just play dead look straight ahead don't talk to anyone
Wipe your lips and hide your hips and arms across the front
Fox you gotta keep an eye for dogs they're on the hunt

Do you know just how it feels to always get called out?
Every minute everyday they wanna drag you down
Into a world of ugly words for all the pretty things
A girl has got to hide away to walk by quietly

Hold my breath - is that what I should do?
Suffocate - is that what I should do?
Bite your angry tongue - is that what you would do?
Just play dead look straight ahead - is that what I should do?

Won't shut up I won't shut up it's not what I should do
Can't pretend its all okay I'm gonna yell the truth
Won't ignore it can't walk away can't give them what they want
It's not a call it's not a cry it's a justified response
To you
Track Name: New Scars
Plastic parts in our miniskirts
We got shattered hearts and they can't get hurt
We got time to kill we got books to burn
We got art to make we got shit to learn

And everybody wants to know
All the secrets I never told
Keep a list of things I need to do
Got ten new scars I want to give to you

Do you remember we lived like we wanted to?
Do you remember we lived like we wanted to die

Hearts of darkness hearts of rusted gold
Setting all the fires that burn so cold
Living on your criminal criminal time
Stealing all the words that were never mine

(repeat chorus)
Black out your heart x4
(repeat chorus)

Got a list I need to do
Got ten new scars I wanna give to you
Track Name: Kinda Good
Say a prayer in the shadows
Put your lonely hand in mine
We can chase away the rainy days
We can feel the sunshine

You got a certain way of talking like you should
Now you're here and I'm feeling kinda good
And all the girls they fell for you and I never understood
Now I know just how they felt kinda good

Stormy days run away yeah you know it's true
When I'm with you oh
When I'm with you

You light up all the darkest skies
More stars than Hollywood
I look at you and you're looking kinda god
And if I tried to run away you know I never could
I'd run right back and I'd try to act kinda good

Rainy days go away yeah you know it's true
When I'm with you oh
When I'm with you

And when I felt so terrible you always understood
Stay with me and its gonna be kinda good

Say a prayer in the shadows
Mix the tears up with the sunshine
We can paint a perfect rainbow
From your heart right back to mine

You got a certain way of talking like you should
Now you're here and I'm feeling kinda good
And all the girls they fell for you and I never understood
Now I know just how they felt kinda good

Even on all the rainy days
We can feel the sunshine
Track Name: I Want More
She's such a tramp he's just a whore
Its packaged so perfect yeah I want more
Force fed an image girl next door
Watch all her movies and I want more
Turning all their tricks its rotten to the core
Tastes so sugar and I want more
Saw it on the T.v. then I bought it from the store
Got some bad credit but I want more
Do you need it? We don't know
Just force feed it and watch it grow
Grab my hand start to look around
Cuz we just gotta burn it all to the ground
Right now

Sold all the things I didn't use before
Now I feel so empty oh I want more
Give me entertainment yeah I'm getting bored
Tell me what to like cuz I want more
Do you need it? We don't know
Just force feed it and watch it grow
Grab my hand start to look around
Cuz we just gotta burn it all to the ground
Right now right now right now
Right now right now

He's such a tramp she's just a whore
Its packaged so perfect and I want more
Force fed an image girl next door
Buy up all the merchandise cuz I want more
Turning all their tricks its rotten to the core
But it tastes so sugary and I want more
Saw it on the t.v. then I bought it from the store
Got some bad credit but I want more

(repeat chorus)
Track Name: Leave It Behind
I'm lying here in the dark
Just waiting for you
I'm watching the clock
Wondering what you do
Your lies, late nights, and alibis
Your charm is stretching thin
It's time to say goodbye

You did us so wrong
We used to be right
You say I can't blame it on you
But it's airtight

Oh oh oh oh
Leave it all behind
No no no no
I don't want to hear no more lies
You've got to go
I don't want you
Not this time

I tried to forgive
You tried to forget
We did everything
But it kept coming back

I spent so many nights
Worrying myself sick
Wondering where you'd been
And just who with
Your lies, late nights, and alibis
Your charm is stretching thin
It's time to say goodbye
Track Name: Dirty Knives
20,000 years ago there was a girl that I don't know
Praying for a vein to bleed crying herself to sleep
Portrait of a dying life we painted it with dirty knives
Lost some words along the way I wouldn't want to hear today

The graves we dig so deep
With secrets that we keep
We cry ourselves to sleep

All of us are fighting, now everyone's at war
When one of us is crying what are we fighting for?
It's burning up the photographs its tearing down the door
When all of us are crying what are we fighting for?

20,000 miles back i left some things I couldn't pack
Buried in an open grave for anyone to find today
Pieces of an empty life we cut apart with dirty knives
Lost some things I couldn't save I hid them well along the way

The graves we dig so deep
With secrets that we keep
We cry ourselves to sleep

(repeat verse and chorus)
