Track Name: Swear
saturday, make me okay
wash away the pain

saturday, fix up my heart
patch up my brain

daydream, about running away
to somewhere i can breathe

daydream, about how to convince you
that i am okay

river, take me away
underneath the sea
weather, blow me away
scatter me across the earth
i swear i’m fine, i swear i’m okay
i swear i’m fine, i swear i’m okay

someone please
pinch me so i know i know i’m still alive

someone please
kiss me and give me life

river, take me away
underneath the sea
weather, blow me away
scatter me across the earth
i swear i’m fine, i swear i’m okay
i swear i’m fine, i swear i’m okay


i need you, i need you now
i need you, i need you now
Track Name: Sacrilegious
is it sacrilegious if i say i don’t believe in god
that the beat of my heart is not enough to give me faith at all

there’s people dying every single day
my mother’s crying cause she’s not okay
when i look in the mirror all i feel is hate
"it happens for a reason" but there’s no such thing as fate

when it comes to religion i don’t really know just what to say
my parents raised me one way that’s not to say god’s name in vain

but oh my god i just don’t like to pray
to worship something i can’t see in any way
my homeland is killing lots of innocent people
because neither side can reason over allah and yaweh

if a woman is scared to walk along the streets alone at night
if a man gets beat up just because he says he likes to write
if a child gets bullied just because they’re different
if the human race can’t agree on same-sex marriage
or reproductive rights just based off some old ancient scripture

where is your god now
where is your god now
Track Name: Scream
sometimes i feel you on my skin
like you never left me, like you’re here within

sometimes i hear your voice at night
like you’re still beside me, like it’s all just fine

i can cry all i want
but that won’t solve anything

and i can scream all i want
but that won’t bring you back to me

sometimes i wake up in my bed
expecting you beside me, but it’s all in my head

sometimes i still sleep in your shirt
just because it’s comfy, and it smells just like you

i can cry all i want
but that won’t solve anything

and i can scream all i want
but that won’t bring you back to me

i miss you, i miss you

i miss you, i miss you
Track Name: Drive
grow a little garden in your brain
plant me inside of your head
nurture me through whatever
shelter me from bad weather

driving down highway 85 in the pouring rain
some song playing on the radio about being dead
you take a puff of your cigarette
you thought about when we first had sex

here in the front seat while i braid my hair with my feet on the dash
you held my hand as you drove me home it was late at night
you kissed me all over my neck
you told me that you’re glad we met

here in the back seat where you took off my clothes and you felt my breath
you played with my hair and you held me close like we would never leave here
you stroked my skin and you kissed my scars
you told me i’m your flower and always was

here in the trunk was where we slept at the top of a mountain
you played guitar and sung about your regrets and my fears
you rolled down the window to look at the stars
you dedicated one to our love

grow a little garden in your brain
plant me inside of your head
nurture me through whatever
shelter me from bad weather
Track Name: Fifth Avenue
you and i we are the perfect match
but you don’t seem to notice a thing
you talk about her like she’s an angel
but you’re perfect for me
why you stay with her when all she does is hurt you
well that’s beyond me

i wanna live with you in a little apartment on fifth avenue
i don’t need a thing but you and a little bit of money to get me through
we could sleep on a mattress on the floor
we could have just one cat maybe more
you could hold me close and wrap your arms around me
i’ll make you forget all the things she did to break your heart

i know it’s crazy but i think about you all the time
if we were together it would ease the loneliness inside

i wanna live with you in a little apartment on fifth avenue
i don’t need a thing but you and a little bit of money to get me through
we could sleep on a mattress on the floor
we could have just one cat maybe more
you could hold me close and wrap your arms around me
i’ll make you forget all the things she did to break your heart

i guess i probably shouldn’t get my hopes up cause i’ll get torn
i know you’d choose her over anything so what’s the point
Track Name: Far Away
i know the feeling you get when you wanna die
it’s like an empty hole in your chest waiting to be filled
you’ll do anything to numb the pain you feel

sitting in the bathroom
bent over the toilet
fingers down your throat
and you’re trying not to choke
break open your razor
taking out the blade
you let it kiss your skin
taking you away
far away

i know the feeling you get when you look in the mirror
you stare at your reflection but don’t recognize your face
you’ll do anything you can to feel like yourself

sitting at the dinner table
haven’t ate all day
push the food around your plate
and pray they won’t say anything
meeting in the back alley
they’ll tell you what to pay
inject a little heroin
and let it take you away
far away

i know the feeling you get when you are okay
you wake up in the morning and know it’s a good day
you’ll do anything you can to make it stay

laying in the backyard
looking at the sky
you figure out the shapes of clouds
and bathe in the sun’s rays
walking through your neighborhood
you pick a little flower
you pull off its petals
and let them blow away
far away
