When I was a young girl I saw Dad pin against the wall My sister, he had her by the hair I never said a word My mother left when I was 8 Came downstairs & said goodbye My brother said he didn’t care But he was dead by 25 If I have to live with it I don’t want to believe it I don’t want to relive it If I have to live with it I don’t want to believe it I don’t want to relive it If I have to live with it I don’t want to believe it I don’t want to relive it I NEVER WANNA SUCCUMB I never wanna feel I never wanna feel it I never wanna forgive I NEVER WANNA SUCCUMB If I have to… I never wanna believe... I never wanna relive I NEVER WANNA SUCCUMB I never wanna feel I never wanna feel it I never wanna forget I NEVER WANNA SUCCUMB REWIRE REWIRE REWIRE ME.

Madman 05:41
Disconnected from My country because I I am a no man Citizen of no one Disconnected from My body because you Could be the conman Come to raid my house Is it hysterical When I’m hysterical? If you can’t go and name it Might as well shame it I don’t even mind The madman at night Beware when I smile It’s over and done Maybe today’s the day I outrun my demons Random act of violence Disconnected from My country because I I am a woman Citizen of no one Is it hysterical When I’m hysterical? If you can’t go and own it Might as well it I don’t even mind The madman at night Beware when I smile It’s over and done And I don’t even mind The madman at night I’m the madman this time It’s over, it’s over In this life, I have not a single cent To invest in a lifetime of ignorance While all I have done is sell you what I’ve been sold To only be left in debt instead of gold And now I know... What is chasing me

Did I weigh you down again When I showed you how it felt Like a promise never kept Like a name you never guessed There’s a road it takes me down To a place where I never left I didn’t know how brutal it was I didn’t know what I fool I was And I will not keep you here And I will not keep you near Cause I gave you everything I had I gave you everything I had I didn’t know how brutal it was I didn’t know what I fool I was It’s the mundane where I can relate Missing all the lonesome and cruel ways Always wonder why I don’t see you around Maybe you’re like me and just hiding out Acting out Wait it out

Stories 04:50
Stories, I keep on selling Out to the highest bidder Madness, met me at midnight Took you up on your offer I’m done with the dream Woke up, Irrelevant again Went to bed a burgeoning trend Restless, Guess it’s my nature Another witness to the dawn I’m done with the dream The dream is done with me

I want to be the flower I want to be the bee I want to know if God Really does hear me When I’m desperate Blasphemous and fiend Please come find me And relieve me Please come and find me I want to hear my name On the lips of a crowd I want to be a flower I want to be the bee Can you hear me? Come and find me I want to hear my name On the lips of a crowd Behind the veil I wanted there To be an explanation Somewhere

Is modern feminism getting you down? Is it condemning your favorite feminine blouse? Well remember it’s because of it your choices abound Little white girl, think about all the women We’re leaving out No one told me when I hit 35 I would spend all my money to look 25 And lose my sex And lose my mind And fuck, time flies by! But I swear I’m having the time of my life I just want to feel liberated But I fear when I choke down those pills I swallow something more than ‘scripts It’s the seed of doubt that grows Planted there long ago Man made but woman owned And for that, there’s no placebo

Feedback 05:30
When the feedback comes It drowns out everything You say “catch your breath” Like I have any oxygen left But you don’t know How it feels to be Pulled from your bones Crushing fear beneath And I love you for that The feedback You don’t know the pain And I hate you for it too Hate that you’re gonna run soon Once upon a time I wanted to be brave Now resilience is All I wanna fake How many times Did you leave when I Begged you not to go And leave me all alone I know you gotta go to work But love’s no comedy The timing is never great Oh great, let’s try to pretend I’m gonna be okay

Wave Goodbye 05:50
I watch, betrayed Bodies turn to waste I guess I’ll wave goodbye Crying all the while You said it best: “Crazy is relative And we are all dying” Yes, we are all dying I guess I’ll wave goodbye Crying all the while You can come home if you want to
