Track Name: Hoop
I pay attention like taxes to what they say matters
Will I ever have a life of my own?
I’m throwing fits like daggers
Caged and I’m rabid, but they’re never gonna let me go
I play this game and when I think that I’ve won

Then whoah, there’s a hoop waiting on me
Then whoah, there’s a hoop waiting on me, waiting on me.

These ball and chain expectations, feign like they’re wightless
Till I agree to put them on
This suburban agenda sets fire to my temper
And I’m just trying not to let it blow
I play this game and when I think that I’ve won

Then whoah, there’s a hoop waiting on me
Then whoah, there’s a hoop waiting on me, waiting on me.

There’s no end to these hoops that I jump through for you.
Track Name: Heard
She said pay me what you owe me, all of your attention
Show me that you know me, give me a connection,
all of your affection too, all the rest of you.
Cause all of my words fall out underwater
Never quite learn to swim like they oughta
Drowned down and out in blue, on their way to you
Square sounds in a round ear
Tangled prayers trapped in the atmosphere

We’re tongues running out of time
To give to the heart what the head can’t find
A world wide awake tonight wondering what it takes to be heard
All we want is just to be heard

Watching my words all collapse like Babylon
Let the smoke clear brush is off and rabble on
Oh how do I get through? How do I get you?
Yeah, we can crack codes all night if you wanna
Saying what you mean don’t mean that we’re gonna
Ever build love from lust, ever be more than just a
Square sound in a round ear.
Tangled prayer trapped in the atmosphere

We’re tongues running out of time
To give to the heart what the head can’t find
A world wide awake tonight wondering what it takes to be heard
All we want is just to be heard
Track Name: Lower Class Love
Oh we’re living it up in a singlewide castle
And baby there ain’t no reason why
We should be held down by the dazzle of the flashier life
Cause we got what we need to make the finest CUISINE
Out of three simple letters baby, E. B. and T.
So lets turn this fader down on all of these haters
and stream some Netflix on jacked wi-fi from the neighbors because

We don’t need expensive reasons
For this lower class love, this lower class love
Already found what everybody’s been seeking
In this lower class love, this lower class love

You drive me crazy with the off-brand,
no-name, budget-conscious kind of way
You look at me with those eyes.
And girl your sexuality is just like your frugality
You want twice of me for half of the price
And it blows my mind that it didn’t cost a dime
To end up here with you by my side
Its either t.p. or tequila, we can’t afford both
But there ain’t no one else that I‘d rather be broke with

We don’t need expensive reasons
For this lower class love, this lower class love
Already found what everybody’s been seeking
In this lower class love, this lower class love
Track Name: Enough
I gave you space, forgave your crimes
I gave you everything you begged for and then some to ease your mind
I let you run away. I let you stay gone
Then I come when you call like some domesticated thing you own

Will it ever be enough?
Will it ever be enough?
You know I drain myself trying to think of how to fill you up
Will it ever be enough?

I excuse your sins. I take your side.
I tend the scratches on the itches of all of your addiction at night.
I feed your fire, till its too hot to touch
But every night this questions burns like a fever and it keeps me up.

Will it ever be enough?
Will it ever be enough?
You know I drain myself trying to think of how to fill you up
Will it ever be enough?
Track Name: Worthless
Lose my temper like my car keys
Go from ally to enemy
I shoot fire like a dragon flame
Burn you up make my getaway
Apologies are only worth the weight of what they take to say

Oh, I never meant to make you feel so worthless
When you were the only one thing that was ever worth it.

We turn our words into world wars
Yeah we fight like we’re megazords
And we’ll empty every last clip
Till we forget who started it
A wounded song is only worth the weight of what it takes to play

Oh, I never meant to make you feel so worthless
When you were the only one thing that was ever worth it.

Oh, I never meant to make you feel so worthless
When you were the only one thing. The only one thing.
Track Name: Limp
You’ve got that stupid awesome dance you do when you hear that song
But now you’ve somehow forgot the moves its been so long
Somebody thought that it’d be fun to call you their only one
They left you the one and only one who crash-landed lonely
Said you would never take a chance again
But that’s all we’ll ever be given
Said you were never gonna dance again
but that guilty feeling will bow to the rhythm
Don't wait to live your life till every wrong is made right

You used to wonder how the wind could speak and not use words
Or why the colors in the sky at every sunset turn
You never realized that you gave all your magic to
These soft assassinations we call explanations.

Said you would never take a chance again
But that’s all we’ll ever be given
Said you were never gonna dance again
but that guilty feeling will bow to the rhythm
Don't wait to live your life till every wrong is made right

Said you would never take a chance again,
Oh you said you were never gonna dance again
But that feeling will bow.
Track Name: Punk Rock
Do you remember that summer
We sold our adderall to pay for gas to make it to the coast and back?
Or the night we slept in jail
When the cops said they could nail us with you parent’s paraphernalia?

There will never be a love again
There will never be a love again so punk rock
Never be a love again
There will never be a love again so punk rock

All the sin we drank with x’s on our hands
Broke the locks on heavy hexes that they said would protect us
On the nights we waded out too far from land
Swore that we were seeing Jesus on that trip with dirty needles in us

There will never be a love again
There will never be a love again so punk rock
Never be a love again
There will never be a love again so punk rock

Our love isn’t made from the same stuff
All the other loves are made of
It can’t be tamed with the same drugs
Swept away in the same floods
Our love isn’t made from the same stuff
All the other loves are made of
It can’t be washed in the same blood
Swept away in the same floods

There will never be a love again
There will never be a love again so punk rock
Never be a love again
There will never be a love again so punk rock
Track Name: Don't You Want Me
Lyrics by The Human League
Track Name: Crimewave
A shark to blood in open water, you were there to strike
Clever how nobody ever picks the dead of light
It must have hit you like thunder, feeling the uncontrollable hunger

Oblivious
I should have known just what these locks were for
Mysterious
How nobody breaks into an open door
And now you’re still in my head even after your gone
Now I can feel you breathing over me when I sleep
Running our hands over secrets I keep
Watching while I wonder: Why me?

You hit me like a Crimewave
Washing all my safety out to sea
Like some kind of ice age
I can feel the cold crawling into me
And now I’m losing all my faith
With every law you violate
Lost inside a mind game
Too brave to run, too scared to stay in this Crimewave

Now locking up is not enough to keep it safe and sound
This situation you’ve created can’t be turned around
Can’t fall asleep cause I wonder
Which of my dreams you’re gonna be under

What if I never feel safe again?
I can’t stop imagining that every bump in the night is you breaking in
What if I never feel safe again?
I can’t stop imagining that every bump in the night is you breaking in
What if the fear never fades and I can never escape from this Crimewave.
Track Name: Playbill
AN anchored heart used to feel so safe
Used to keep you from floating away like a feather untethered
Secret fears that you had came true, made you
Wonder what you were anchored to
Oh the playbill was so different

Chains feel like love by another name
And you’ve been looking for a brand new way to make the same mistake

It’s slurry words begging you to stay
Restless soul saying walk away
How did you end up here anyway?
The house on a rock can still be set aflame
One taste of another tree
Up and broke all the gravity
Shackle-born forever we
Are all held down by the weight of love

The heart beats blood and love so deep
Into wild veins that forever plead
to be filled with trust or unholy lust
a worn out oath on an unworn tongue
now a wildfire that you can’t outrun
were you fools in love?
Was that what is was?

You were on your knees begging for escape
Now you’re praying for just one more day to make the same mistakes

Are we better off
Making all the wrong choices
Hearing all the voices
Drinking all the wrong poisons ?
Are we better off than not
Making all the wrong choices
Hearing all the voices
Making all the wrong noises ?
