Bury Me 04:18
you thought i would’ve learned by now that if a chord is broken you should throw it out waiting for it to fix itself it’s only gonna come around and burn the house down i used to feel so at home in this space i based too much of my own happiness on the site of your face it’s a long way back dear a long way back you have me where you want me feet showing buried in the leaves i used to feel so at home in this space i based too much of my own happiness on the site of your face its a long way back dear a long way back so the sun won’t get in my eyes so the sun won’t get in my eyes (bury me in the leaves) so the sun won’t get in my eyes so the sun won’t get in my eyes (bury me in the leaves) so the sun won’t get in my eyes so the sun won’t get in my eyes (bury me in the leaves) so the sun won’t get in my eyes so the sun won’t get in my eyes

Voice Box 04:51
you know i’m your mirror You know i’m your greatest fear i know it’s easier to bury your uncertainties in a cloud of masculinity guess it’s the curse you bear to talk over me and my voice grows hoarse from saying look at me i wanna go out in the streets hit the concrete until my knuckles bleed but instead i’ll stay inside undisturbed by the far off sound of your breathing (chorus) guess we’re our fathers children after all you’ve gotta gun in your hand that you wanna shoot straight through the wall you’ve got a head full of sand that you promised wouldn’t make you fall is that why you’re never sorry you’re never sorry you’re never sorry (chorus) i don’t wanna yell Take my voice box out i can’t control myself i don’t wanna yell Take my voice box out i can’t control myself I’ve been angry since i was a little girl it runs through me like fire you wish you could keep in one room thinking that i couldn’t burn you but i’m too reckless won’t keep quiet like the world has always wanted me to but i do (chorus)

Athlete 03:11
am i moving too slowly can’t keep up with the race Trying to pass the torch but threw it in your face wish i was an athlete wish i was good on my feet But you don’t want me on your team like to think that i make it up with character a real team player but it doesn’t matter no it doesn’t matter wish i was an athlete wish i was good on my feet But you don’t want me on your team your team your team wish i was an athlete wish i was good on my feet But you don’t want me on your team your team your team

Jetplane 02:59
your eyes are frozen You can’t see throw them there’s water on the pavement i built a boat but you can take it they say there’s red light in the water but would you ever really bother if you knew that it was the last thing that you ever wanted to taste I swear that i always wanted you now you're leaving now you’re leaving on a now you’re leaving on a jet plane to a place that i can’t go to ‘cause my tired wings don't Wanna go as far as yours do

No Caves 04:23
your eyes are frozen You can’t see throw them there’s water on the pavement i built a boat but you can take it they say there’s red light in the water but would you ever really bother if you knew that it was the last thing that you ever wanted to taste I swear that i always wanted you now you're leaving now you’re leaving on a now you’re leaving on a jet plane to a place that i can’t go to ‘cause my tired wings don't Wanna go as far as yours do
