:///
you dont need lyrics to this
Track Name: eye contact
flies try to land in your eyes
'cause they think its a body of water
dont be surprised
when i end up there too
'cause baby you rid me of the blues

dont look away
its true what they say
i just need love and lots of tissues
maybe you dont understand what ive been through
i'm like a magazine
so many issues

so just hold me, baby
hold me with your eyes
Track Name: thorns
show me a garden that doesnt taste like blood
paint up your mouth, i know it tastes like roses
with my blog as my soapbox, im sculpting speeches
just bc we're going nowhere doesnt mean we're static

with rows of ribbons, ravens running through your spine
baby, where does your loyalty lie?

we're all just
walking talking temper tantrums, ticking bombs & phone alarms
quiet down
rogaine in your eyes, lighter fluid in your mind
quiet down
nothing smells as sweet without thorns, baby
& youve got thorns, baby

with rows of ribbons, ravens running through your spine
baby, where does your loyalty lie?

is it with me?
Track Name: letter to the cishet white boy
dear cishet white boy
you are the worst and i hate you
dear cishet white boy
you are the worst thing thats ever happened to me

oh im super queer
but im attracted to football players
who the hell decided that
x2

i really really hate you
i really wanna fuck you
i really really hate you tho
x2

its not bc of his identity
that he didnt choose
that i hate him
its bc cishet white boys
have a tendency
to not give a shit abt what i have to say (a/n: activism shit)


oh im super queer
but im attracted to football players
who the hell decided that
x2

i really really hate you
i really wanna fuck you
i really really hate you tho
x2

i think you hate me, i think you hate me
cause i dont believe in reverse discrimination
i think you hate me cause im confident
& i'm fat & queer & punk
i think you hate me for lots of reasons
but i still wish
youd screw me...
Track Name: battery acid
please put elmer’s glue in my iv bag
bring connection to my loose skin
lately it’s farther than it’s ever been
dripping and sinking into the evidence
fill it with acid rain clouds as well
in the hopes that i, too, will evaporate

because i taste like battery acid and act like it too,
bring your drugs to the party…
leave your babe in their bedroom
bring me your body,
and i’ll bring inexorable lust

shake you down to your core.
nothing more.
we dance in your parents’ bedroom
and we’ll be

sewer-tainted sweethearts with ash livers & vodka-soaked lungs
binge-kissing.
we coalesce
on laundry machines
close to midnight
we keep knocking headboards into siblings’ walls

shaking the doors on public bathroom stalls
putting our hands all over each other
crashing our bodies and teeth and hearts as if
this was more than underage sex

but it’s not
and we’re not greater than average
substance abuse doesn’t bring you closer to freedom
but we all romanticize the fuck-ups that we are

but if you’re straight-B’s and Netflix,
don’t worry about it
some of us like to lose control
and some of us like to be alone

i taste like battery acid and act like it too

dont leave me alone
Track Name: hardly a guitarist
i wanna be a folk punk kid
but i really suck at guitar
id rather play piano
where i know more chords than four

but i'll keep on tryin
and i'll never stop cryin

oh i wanna be a folk punk kid
but i cant be that bold
my parents bought me an autoharp
but its out of tune and old

i wanna be a folk punk kid
but i really suck at guitar
how can a kid on piano
ever be a rockstar

but i'll keep on tryin
and i'll never stop cryin

[now here comes a rly great guitar solo
it really shows off my skillz...]
