Track Name: 5 Acres
Don’t care, don’t care, go away
What did I do to deserve this from you?
What did I say to make you?
Make you and break you with one hand
Well that was in my plan, but this is where I stand
Cuz you’ve gone to 5 acres of land and maybe there
You’ll keep a friend, keep in touch
I’ll miss you, I’ll miss you so much
So much I want to die
Well at least now I can try, at least now I can try
Cuz you’ve gone to 5 acres of land and maybe there
Keep on puppy-dog eyeing
You say you like sitting in your own shit
Well there in the doghouse you’re lying
Remember the rose garden you never promised me
Give an inch, take a mile
You say you can’t change time, and there’s no reason, no rhyme
No rhyme or reason you see
Cuz the worm I am eating away at both you and me
So you’re going to 5 acres of land, and maybe there
You’ll keep a friend
Track Name: Forever Fired
He says he feels your pain, he felt mine too
He feels everything that belongs to you
He builds a trap that you can't see
For wholesome girls like you and me
It doesn't mater if your sleeping
To get the control that he has been seeking
He wants to make employment out of you
He's scared, Because he knows his working days are through

Because he's fired
I'll say it again, there's no good time for this to end
Come on, fired
I'll say it again there's no good time for this to end
Even though he's secret and true
You know, the same old shit won't do
Come on, fired
I'll say it again, there's no good time for this

He says he feels your pain he felt mine too
He'll say anything to get inside of you
Resistance to his trap, resistance to him
You're either irrational or on some kind of whim
You haven't changed, no not at all
Except now your teasing gives him blue balls
He wants to work by taking care of you
He's scared, because he knows these words are true

Spit it out, spit it out
Chew until my heart's eaten out
This is what it's all about for you, for you
It's always about you
Eat until you're full of me
Suck me dry until I don't have anything
Inside out, inside of me
You're inside out, get out of me
Don't tell me what is mine
This time you'll just have to get out
Because this is mine
This time
Track Name: Watchmaker
Do you do you do you wanna watch me
Can you make them like to see me bleed
Do you do you wanna watch me
Can you make them like to see me bleed
Are we something you can pick apart
Well there's one more spot on the guest list

I asked you what time it was
Not how to make a watch
I asked you what time it was
Not how to make a watch

Every time i speak to you
I see your lies shine through
Every line you babble gets spoiled?
So get away from me cuz i hate your guts

I want i want to rip off your best catch phrase
Smear your face across the music page
Gonna rip off your best catch phrase
Smear your face across the front page
"Watch out cute gory gory girlfriend"
The watchmaker is the watch watch watchman

I asked you what time it was
Not how to make a watch
I asked you what time it was
Not how to make a watch

Every time i speak to you
I see your lies shine through
Every line you babble gets spoiled?
So get away from me cuz i hate your guts

I don't speak loud enough you say, is this loud for you?
We don't rock hard enough you say, is this hard enough for you?
I don't talk smart enough you say, is this smart enough for you?
I don't speak loud enough you say, is this loud enough for you?

Tech talk watchmaker
She's a smart ass kicker
Tech talk watchmaker
She's a smart ass kicker
Tech talk watchmaker smart ass kicker
Find her tell her you found me a watchmaker

I told you how to make a watch, how does it feel?
I told you how to make a watch, don't you care?

Every time i speak to you
I see your lies shine through
Every line you babble gets spoiled?
So get away from me cuz i hate your guts

Tick tock watchmaker
Find her tell her you found me a watchmaker
Tech talk find her a watchmaker
Track Name: I'd Rather Eat Glass
I’ve run out of nice things to say
I get so tired of playing it safe
Say what? You respect me a lot
What’s it to you? Is this what you expect me to do?
You say what?
What do I mean? What do I mean?
Did I do and say ‘that’s fucked up’?
You know it’s true
Changed my mind, I guess that’s fine
This is what I was supposed to do
Words you use to try and alienate
You talk so big you put me in my place
We’ve been running around
Some tales to be found
I’ve found a door
We’ve got some dialogue to do
I say that, everything that comes out of my mouth has been said a lot
You know it’s true, talking in circles is all that we do
I’d rather eat glass, gonna’ be in your ass
Track Name: Deactur H.S.
Red light, blank smile
It's a shame the way you drive so fast
Or are you living in the past?

Red light runner
Red light runner
Red light runner, seven in one
Red light runner
Red light runner
Red light runner, seven in one

So what if wanna live fast die young
You cant tell me i'm the only one
Whats a red light when I'm driving so fast
That I cant see anything i pass

Hurry up already
Out of control

Red light means blank smile
You think that is serious
Red light means blank smile
That's so oh my God

Redlight runner seven in one
Red light means blank smile
You think that its serious
Oh my god

Red light runner
Red light runner
Red light runner, seven in one
Red light runner
Red light runner
Red light runner, seven days in one
Track Name: This Is Not Your Wedding Song
Will you wear white, Will you wear white
On your wedding Day, Will you wear white
Will you tell them what you did to me, Will you tell them everything

Will you wear white, Will you wear white
On your wedding day, Will you wear white
The guilt shows through everything

I won't cry at your wedding
I don't cry at weddings

Don't think you can start again
You've got my insides all over your hands
Don't think you can ever hide
You stain everything you touch with your hands
Don't think I will let you forget
Because I will never be able to forget
I know who you are
You think you can pretend with me, I still remember everything

I won't cry at your wedding
I don't cry at weddings

Tomorrow, tomorrow, I'll get you tomorrow, You're only a day away
Tomorrow, tomorrow, I wait for tomorrow to wash all this dirt away

I now pronounce you, I now pronounce you, I now pronounce you dead

Die, Die, Die, Die, Die, Die, Die (at your wedding)
I won't cry (for you)
You can't do this to me (again)
The guilt will show through
Track Name: The Drop Dead Look
What's the matter with you?
Do as you want me to do
They always said you were the clever sentimentalist
Sensitive, seductive, and easy to tease
No fair
Pull out your hair
You know they like you better on your knees

Don't be such a baby
I only like you 'cause I know you're gonna make me
Big, so big
Lengendary protege
You know they like me when I have nothing to say, yeah

What's the matter with you?
Make me a product of you
They always said you were the fascinating mystery
Shaped into the right size for their hands
To touch, to mold, to shape until they have control
You know they like girls better when they're dead

The code is discretion
No one know it is I don't tell them
Your rules, your game
The things you do to make me tame
And then you say
That you're gonna change, yeah yeah

When you tell me that you hate me
Won't you look me in the eyes?

Don't be such a baby
I only fuck you 'cause I know you're gonna make me
Big, so big
Legendary protege
You know you got the drop dead look, yeah
Track Name: Designated Shotgun
Designated shotgun is not the throne I want to placed on
And the thrill of a ride in ambulance to you is fun
So you say you are grieving cuz there is so much pain
But you barely ever reach
And my heart is bleeding so
Go away, don’t come back some other day
So you say you’re grieving
But you’re really just complaining
Cuz your problem’s leaving, and mine is staying so
Go away, don’t come back
Lamentations is all that I hear
I bet you don’t even go to the doctor once a year
And I bet true pain to you is a scream in your ear
But that’s really just a word and
Cuz your problem’s leaving, and mine is staying so
Track Name: Nervousness Never Fades
Last night I thought I'd just go ahead and pull my hair out
I hate to wait around for failure I'd rather do it on my own
Then wait
The nervousness never fades

This not an invitation
For you to crawl inside of me
This is not your love song to analyze
More like a good sleep remedy

This is song I wanted to write about this girl I know
But I know you'd all just twist it into what you wanted me to say
And mean
You don't know a thing

All these things I want to tear right out of me
Like how it matters how I care what people think
It's you it's you it's you it's you
We've got to get out of here before it kills us

I'm going to put my heart right on the page and let It bleed right through
There's nothing else to do
The words, they're eaten all
The words The words they want to Eat this up

Runners take your places
Ready on your marks
Gun goes, they're off
Runners leave the start

I watch you as your run away
With part of my heart
I'm stuck here at the start
You finished with my heart
Track Name: Framed
Some could say they were framed
By the very hand that feeds them wao
The story’s always the same
Gotta find someone else to blame wao
There is always someone to blame
Always under control, it’s only natural
Monkae see as monkae do
Portrait of painful perfection
Exists up close, perfect protection
Did u picture? Did u picture this?
Said enjoy it while it lasts
There’s too much grey to see contrast
It’s never good enough, and fashion is a must
I never thought of biting the hand that feeds me
But now I’m growing fangs and I haven’t eaten in days
It’s not scheduled to do
I get cranky from all this work I do
At least I don’t look like I used to
Did u picture? Did u picture this?
Said to take a chill pill
I know I do my own thing
Well children get it right
Someone’s got their time too tight
Well we are right
