Track Name: Young and Heartless - Ghost Pity
Your father is out golfing away his problems, and your mom gets paid to talk to strangers but she still “don't have a word” to say to you. And you say you don't care, I don't know how you do it.
If you love them, don't you need them and don't you need them to love you too?
So you cut cut cut away all of your feelings, just to avoid them seeing something,
but even if they did, you doubt they would care.
You're just a hair on a blade in a bloodless holy war.
So today is your last, just like the past 4 years, the feeling feels healthy and worth it.
But not much has changed, a grown woman afraid of phone calls, afraid of bad news.
Afraid we don't all live forever like we used to.
You take pills in your purse and you wonder if you'd want to.
I'm at home feeling sorry for myself and my perfect family, hiding out in my room always distracted, but somehow you're always always always on my mind.
You're the reason I'm still staring at the ceiling, losing sleep, wasting time.
Do you feel “sorry for me” or “envy me” the way that I envy you at all?
Do you feel “sorry for me” or “envy me” the way that I envy you?
Am I in love when I breathe in pity and leave myself alone?
Track Name: FERO LUX - It Rains
Despite the rings around my eyes,
you can always find me eating the velvet hearts
of everyone who never seemed to care.

A vacation under black clouds, time escapes me.
Coughing out caved organs, time escapes me.

I swim in the oceans where you thought I'd drown.
And I sleep on the cold ground that you hoped I'd belong
to by now. But it rains heavily on me.
Well...drag me to the ocean.

It's better than you, it's better than me,
it's better than anything that you believe.
It's better than dreams of you on your knees,
and everyone here is in shambles.

Despite the rings around my eyes,
you can always find me eating the shallow hearts
of everyone who never seemed to care.
I'm sick and tired by the past years,
starving for your cold ghost, but let's just say that my
stomach, now, is completely full.

It's better than you, it's better than me,
it's better than anything that you believe.
It's better than dreams of you on your knees,
and everyone here is in shambles.
Track Name: holy shadow - You
I want the roads to rise to meet You
I want You to scrape death off your boots
I wanna love You in September
and call it an Autumn truth
and I do not like Your step father of the way that he talks to You
and when I think of You yeah when I close my eyes
You are wearing something blue

because You-o-o-o-o-o know what I are
yeah You-o-o-o-o-o know what I are

and I am sorry about your brother but I am happy you were brave
and I promise I am trying not to be another person you have to save
and I will sing your praises for all that art you made
and I am trying really hard to see you today

because You-o-o-o-o-o know what I are
yeah You-o-o-o-o-o know what I are

and I have dreams of falling asleep in Your car
if only things could stay the way they are

Track Name: Bird Eat Bird - Giving Tree
Well i'm the baddest cat in the town tonight
with my trusty butterfly knife
I've never been in an actual fight,
but i'm brave enough to try and stop one
I don't think i'm a real bad kid,
but my fuckin' therapist
went and put me on the Ritalin.
Now I've got nothin' to strive for

Oh please plant me another giving tree,
causing I cut all the branches off of mine
It's time to leave.
This house is killing me.
It's back to mama and papa Columbine
Track Name: Boyfriend Material - Madison
When I express doubt
Everyone seems to come back
To the same, old pattern
Of watching me fall
Back down to rock bottom
It's the same, old problem
Of giving up on you

And maybe I'm too straight forward
Maybe I've lost my nerve
Maybe I'm over-reacting
But I know
This isn't right.

I'm not one to wait by my phone
Not one to wait for you to want me
Because my worth
Measures up to more
Than the people who might want me
Because I deserve more

It's time to break free from them
To deny them
And love yourself as you want to
Don't be afraid
'Cause no one will love you like you do.
Track Name: Insignificant Other - Songs about Songs
i used to love the smell of smoke
until it covered all my clothes
and i used to try to avert your eyes until i realized you're no longer in my sight
'cause you're in a basement
or you're in another state
and i'm up late again in my room hoping
this won't be another song about you
but i always want what i can't have
and never want what i do

so i've been waking up in beds that are not my bed
holding all these hands that won't hold my head
breathing all this smoke
but it's not from my cigarettes
and i've been building me a home
but it's not my house
and i've been saving you a spot on the couch
the thoughts of you fill my mind but you're not mine to think about

i never want to leave your side
'cause i'm a leech and i am weak
and i am latching onto life
but i can't hold on much longer, you
don't have much time
and i am watching your pulsing heart slow down
and i am losing my mind

you're falling apart
and i can't stand that
but i'm up late in our bed
knowing you're half-dead yet
i catch myself writing about you again
and i can't fill the hole in my mind but i can try
right?

i've been saving you a spot
but deep down i know
that it is too late to call and you won't show
thoughts of you rule my mind and heart and soul
but you won't know
Track Name: Lambs Like Lions - Dust
You are the dust underneath my feet
Whispering every sinful thought while I sleep
Instigator, Liar, Murderer
I will not be broken by your words

Listen closely, (your time is here) helplessly in fear
Owning up to what you've done
My voice will be the last you hear.
(For the thoughts you've put in my head)

I'll rip the tongue right out of your mouth.
(I'll rip your tongue right out)

I'll rip the tongue right out of your mouth.
(I'll rip your tongue right out)

(I will rip your tongue out) x2
(Right OUT!)

For all the lies you've told me
I WILL END YOU
Watch you try to drag your way out of
that abyss

You are the dust beneath my feet. (x3)

I'll rip the tongue right out of your mouth.
(I'll rip your tongue right out)

I'll rip the tongue right out of your mouth.
(I'll rip your tongue right out)

You are the dust beneath my feet.
Track Name: Gouge Away - Enough
Eyes like wolves hunting innocent prey

Seeking out victims to play in your game
Manipulate to fill inside where you've dug your own void
Memories are creeping, and stalking, and haunting
Unfriendly reminders of fiendish behaviors still

Fingertips drag across flesh
Like fragments chisel in a headstone
Invading the hairs on the skin
Crawling up the spine, consuming the mind
Doubting myself because I didn't fight or scream
Keeping your transgression buried underneath
I've done enough believing in the devil
That I forgot who he was after.

Selfish ways have become sadistic
I wasn't born to die a statistic
Silenced by shame, I've hid in secret
I wasn't born to die a statistic
Questioned what I should have done different
I wasn't born to die a statistic
This isn't my guilt to live with
I wasn't born to die a statistic
I wasn't born to die a statistic
I wasn't born to die a statistic
