Track Name: Letter to Myself
i, i am damaged goods
and i can't function the way i should
can't follow the ways of the world around
so wired shut, i won't make a sound
i'm broken down, right down to the marrow
got lost in my sorrow
no one would listen
no, no one could hear me
their ears are sealed

so watch me run, i cannot stay
i'm sorry things had to end this way
this time, i'm sorry i'm too scarred
to hang around
just watch me fall, i'll be alright
i'll try my best to keep myself clear out of sight
and i will run right til the end
some day i'll be strong enough to stand

my fragile bits are scattered
and i know, it's hard, to try, to find, to like
every shattered piece of my mind
but i can't possibly hold you at guilt for anything
that's gone wrong
it's me against myself and i'm learning to like
all i am

so watch me run, i cannot stay
i'm sorry things had to end this way
and i will run right til the end
some day i'll be strong enough to stand

i'll write a letter, i'll write a letter
oh, oh, to myself
Track Name: Ultimate Candy
la, la, la, la, la, la, la (x3)

without a warning, i have fallen for a brand new treat
sugar searching, hard to find the one that is so sweet
different flavors, different colors, different this and that
you've got a million things to keep me off and on your track
and i've searched both high and low and
no store could ever show me somebody quite like you

and i can see you want to
when you say you need to
you don't have to wait to be my ultimate candy
i can see you need to
when you say you want to
you don't have to wait to be my ultimate candy
don't take your time

ba pa da, ba ba ba (eh eh) (x3)
la, la, la, la, la, la, la

so now you've got me thinking
what's the chance that i'd find someone like you
someone who could do all the things that you do
got me wishing, i could be with you anytime of day
so come on baby
what you sayin, what you sayin?
and i've searched both high and low and
no store could ever show me somebody quite like you

and i can see you want to
when you say you need to
you don't have to wait to be my ultimate candy
i can see you need to
when you say you want to
you don't have to wait to be my ultimate candy
don't take your time

you seem to know that i'm the one
i seem to know that you're the one
you seem to know that i'm the one
i seem to know you're so much fun
you seem to know that i'm the one
while we are lying in the sun

and i've searched both high and low and
no store could ever show me somebody quite like you
(oh oh)

and i can see you want to
when you say you need to
you don't have to wait to be my ultimate candy
i can see you need to
when you say you want to
you don't have to wait to be my ultimate candy (x3)

don't take your time
Track Name: Triangles
we see the angles but we don't see the point
it starts with hello then leads to us destroyed
one side so tender; you keep me up so high
but all that fades away when i see the other's eyes
saturn, so toxic, so green with envy, still
held down so solid with love that cannot kill
that void, so open, that he can satisfy
just wish that you could be enough

you can see that i love you
but i can see he loves me too
my heart is yours to lock away
but he will set it free someday
just wish that you could let me go
cause you can see, i need you so
but also see i need him close
so much more than you would know

all these triangles (x4)

we walk on egg shells cause we don't like the truth
my heart beats for him but beats because of you
what have the stars done to put us in these triangles
that puts us in these triangles
all these (all these) triangles
these times are senseless despite all that we feel
your hands are desperate, his hands have gained appeal
your eyes are comfort, his eyes are foreign zones
we're on a planet
we're all just alone

you can see that i love you
but i can see he loves me too
my heart is yours to lock away
but he will set it free someday
just wish that you could let me go
cause you can see, i need you so
but also see i need him close
so much more than you would know

all these triangles (x4)

it was you all along
how couldn't i see (x4)

all these triangles (all these)
all these triangles (all these triangles)
all these triangles (how couldn't i see)
all theses triangles (how couldn't i see)

(how couldn't i see)
(how couldn't i see)

it was you all along
Track Name: Don't Mess w/ Me
don't mess with me (x3)
ah, here we go

hey, boy, see you're looking up at me
clinging on to your hundredth new missy
thought you're fly, got your ride
and your fancy toys
when in reality you're just another boy
i'm not like the other chicks you toss (nah)
not the kinda girl a guy would like to cross (huh)
press on me and i'll stand up for my name
so you can stop all your childish games

you think you've got it all (got it all)
took me on but you took the fall (ha, taking the fall)
do you really want to treat this civilly
then stop yourself from messaging me

cause i don't need controversy hanging on me
don't mess with me
don't need catastrophes hanging on me
don't mess with me

i don't even know you
(no, no, no, no)
you don't even know me
(no you don't)

so, one
why you gotta bring this on me
two
why you gotta act so brutally
three
how many times have you done this before
tell me why you gotta be so immature

you think you've got it all (got it all)
took me on but you took the fall (ha, taking the fall)
can you please put yourself on pause
no one, not me wants to deal with this

well you can run, you can hide (what)
try to cover your pride
tired of pain, lost with hate
punishment is no crime (ok)
sharp and bold, you got told
by my venomous bite (ha)
don't put down, get up now
it's my step up time
standing free, let me be
or you'll have to see (have to see)
you're fighting clean, with no plea
no step up to me (step up to me)
diamond rings, evil deeds
hid what i couldn't see
all was done secretly
now baby you can try me

you think you've got it all (got it all)
took me on but you took the fall (ha, taking the fall)
can you please put yourself on pause
no one, not me wants to deal with this

cause i don't need controversy hanging on me
don't mess with me
don't need catastrophes hanging on me
don't mess with me (x3)
Track Name: Everything's Okay
a swollen heart never beats well
one tough pill, oh the pain could be
the dormant virus, it sits there
nothing we can kill
another minute we can't spell
all the feelings no one ever sees
the common lie that we all care
trudging through our wills

but
everything's okay
every, everything's okay (x5)
right now
(you just need to breathe)
everything's okay
every, everything's okay (x5)
right now
(you just need to breathe)

life
such a paradox in all ways
grey matter spread out in high res
see it all, see it all
from the inside
watch the good and the bad just collide
see, and do, and feel
life out loud, so real
no promises
you can never be sure
struggle hard, fall apart
what's the allure
bond with all, bond with some
just exist
work so hard, love so hard
fall apart but

everything's okay
every, everything's okay (x5)
right now
(you just need to breathe)
everything's okay
every, everything's okay (x5)
right now
(you just need to breathe)

i just wanna let go now
i could never give up everything
after all the i've seen
knowing all i could be
i just wanna take off now
climb up to the place where i should be
with my head in the clouds
living life out loud

and everything's okay
every, everything's okay (x6)
(everything's okay)

and everything's okay
every, everything's okay (x6)
(everything's okay)
Track Name: Break Up Day
i know you see what hurts in me (x4)

(i know)
your skin can feel my breath
the heart beneath my chest
so good that you can feel the love within
(you see)
my eyes all dark and clear
my face all damp with tears
lost in sensation of our legal sin

i wish i could hold you forever with me
but i know the truth
that's all a fantasy

cause i'm so cold that all it takes is one touch heal me
be free to let yourself unlock me with your key
my heart's a price that only you could pay
so please take me back and forget our break up day

(what hurts)
your presence everywhere
your love, your hate, your care
so harsh it's like a blade against my skin
(in me)
predictions of my sleep
my secrets buried deep
so psychic like the stars are where you've been

times will grow older with new memories
but don't you forget
the ones you had with me

cause i'm so cold that all it takes is one touch heal me
be free to let yourself unlock me with your key
my heart's a price that only you could pay
so please take me back and forget our break up day

na, na, na, na, na, na, na (x4)
i know you see what hurts in me (x4)

let's forget our break up day (x3)

cause i'm so cold that all it takes is one touch heal me
be free to let yourself unlock me with your key
my heart's a price that only you could pay
so please take me back and forget our break up
Track Name: The Ship
we always thought we were meant to be
we're in an illusion, just out to sea
hanging on a thought that couldn't meet
even in the wildest of our dreams
how much more naive could things get

what are we thinking?
sometimes you make me cry
what are we doing?
sometimes you make me smile

but
don't just the ship (don't jump the ship) (x3)
don't jump the ship, don't oh
don't just the ship (don't jump the ship) (x3)
don't jump the ship,
don't oh, oh, oh, yeah (x4)

dead ends always end secretly
and nothing ever ends privately
this is the advice we always hear
but we tear apart our world despite the fear
how much more naive we get

we wanna ride this out to eternity
hanging all our hopes on the stars
living in a mindset just like bliss
and jumping on a boat that we should have missed
and if this boat sinks, down

what are we thinking?
sometimes you make me cry
what are we doing?
sometimes you make me smile

don't jump the ship
don't just the ship (don't jump the ship) (x3)
don't jump the ship, don't oh
don't oh, oh, oh, yeah (x4)

don't just the ship (don't jump the ship) (x3)
don't jump the ship, don't oh
don't oh, oh, oh, yeah (x4)

don't just the ship (don't jump the ship) (x3)
don't jump the ship, don't oh
don't oh, oh, oh, yeah (x4)
