Track Name: Swallow
if you can swallow the feed, you can swallow your greed
Track Name: Thank You
locking up the door to my house,
when i should be walking in the door to my show,
so typically me

it's hard to be on time with a broken heart
but sometimes the break comes right on time
was it for my heart? well thanks

falling into quicksand and flailing again
like you know you're not supposed to,
telling me i'm so mean, well my god,
how young and how stuck are you?

i run away to philly again cuz i love my brothers
drinking up a bottle of gin like it was water, oh
choke me harder
leave me just like a father
take it farther, don't bother asking

you make me
you make me
you make me...

i can make you feel how you're supposed to feel
telling me i'm not real, what did i do -
i'm a good girl, daddy - to deserve this?

you make me
you make me
you make me...

it's hard to be on time with a broken heart
there's not much to say, we both know the worst part
is only you can take it away, cuz you make me
you make me
you make me...
Track Name: Special Friend
my special friend is perfect in every way
my special friend makes me feel good every day
my special friend does this one fucking thing that i can't stand
when i try to explain it they don't understand
they take it very personally, but it's not like that to me
my special friend is perfect in every way
my special friend makes me feel good every day
my special friend called me up on the telephone
they were feeling so alone
cuz of some stupid shit that i said, but it wasn't even what i meant
it wasn't even what i meant
my special friend is perfect in every way
makes me feel good every day
makes me come every single time
makes me feel like everything's fine
when i know that the world is dying
Track Name: Read Me
nothing to say, no words in our way
it's all the same when death shows its face
in the pretty things all around this place

the stain of you colors my hand
i run the bath again
as the pretty things grow up to my hem

read me like a book
send chills down my spine
endings that never took, a chorus of "mine, forever"
binding that never breaks
a promise to shine forever

i run the bath again
Track Name: Talking
when you talk to me
i like it backwards, baby
don't listen to me, just nod and agree
expectations low, i'm down to hang on the phone
and even in dreams, you're not saving me

i can see it happening
slow motion butterfly wings
i can feel it softening in me
talking backwards, finally unlearning

i could change my mind
for the second or the third time,
whatever that means - could be dirty or clean

i can see it happening
slow motion butterfly wings
i can feel it softening in me
talking backwards, finally unlearning

oh my god what are we doing
feels so good it makes you stupid
nice to know you keep your clothes on,
we could keep this up for so long
