Track Name: Matryoshka
you hold your hope, dangled like a daunt
frustrated and helpless
placated and restless
you're moving and fading through paper planes of hating
no words to cut the tension
unloved and apprehensive

so long saying goodbye to flood lamps and flashlights
to brighten up these exits

I'm childish like a dream and angry like a teen
and forced to settle endlessly in all adult routines
I fell in love with my duress its painful I confess
but I wouldn't have it other ways shes mine and Im obsessed

so long saying goodbye to flood lamps and flashlights
to brighten up these exits
cut off all the white lines connecting our soft sighs
to mirrors in isolation.
Track Name: Sexatron 5,000
How can you stand and face these things
well I'm just bored beyond belief
put the keys back in I'll just wait right here
and take some time to think

Moving forward
never meant that much to me
cut the heels tell me how it feels
to live with this defeat

Well I've seen this place before
'til now its never hurt me more
can your intentions find another place to hide
or will you nail it to your door

Lost emotions
can you make it back again
follow suit with another group
you've got them in your hands

CAN YOU WAIT!
Track Name: Mirror
It's freezing cold
I hear your breath
you close your eyes
the steam blows west
another sore
blue black and bleeding
another pore
you sweat yourself

a self portrait painted
to look like someone else
the shades are grey
but you can barely tell
my hands are dry
but you're so forgiving
my heart is wry
but you can't stop repeating

well I'm hearing nothing, nothing
outside my hands
my pitch is dark, and my tone is so demeaning

well I'm feeling something, maybe
I'm just dreaming
theres a mirror I've got and I hate that I'm still there
Track Name: Kat Klaws
I need this like a hole into my head
I'm steady and sinking in my hate
the ships going down
the ships going down
it's hopeless now
and all that time you spent not living
and all the things you gave away
I count the seconds on my fingers
of all the times I wish I'd stayed

I've been ignoring inhibitions
so I'll sleep this night away
so you stay inside your circle
it doesn't matter anyway
holding on
gets nowhere
as long as we keep moving
there's no time left for air
Track Name: Cars 2
Im terrified of nighttime
because I can't sleep
falling short on notions
I've had in dreams
but I won't let you in
that door for me is closed
a broken feeling bothered by
the other things I've spoke

and it's such a waste of time
though it might be right

I'm sick of my emotions
they only let me feel
can I be made of plastic
these bones that make me real
I'm sad and desperate
I only want this over
I want to rip them out

and it's such a waste of time
though it might be right

Can't I just be normal
can't I just not think
let the waves crash over
and let the plane smash, sink.
