Track Name: Gender Norms
I don't want to want to go away
and I never would
no I never would
Track Name: Bleach
Trust me
you shouldn't put me on the shelf
Won't you tell me
all the things you tell yourself

In a lonely place

It's easy
for me when you're not around
That's why
you're always gonna let me down

In my lonely place
Track Name: Twenty-three
Twenty-three, twenty-three
I'm calling but you don't hear me

I'm calling, can't you see, can't you see
I love you but you don't love me

I want to, I need to
But everyone wants everything
But everyone wants everything
I want to, I need to
But everyone wants everything
But everyone wants everything

Won't you take me here
won't you take me there
Won't you take me here
Just take me anywhere

Well you take me here
and you leave me there
When you leave me there
you know it's never fair
Track Name: Petey
Josie wants to stay
she tells me everyday, about
She got a job upstate
and now I can't relate

Don't tell me you're tired now
Stay away from your pride now
Just stay one more night now
Let's pretend we're fine now

Josie's made her mind
she'll call me when she finds the time
She spends her nights at home
happy just alone

Don't tell me you're tired now
Stay away from your pride now
Just stay one more night now
Let's pretend we're fine now
Track Name: Twister
I don't want to be alone, be alone with you
I'd rather be at home, than alone with you
party hats and paper cups, all along the floor
I hear my name, you pull me in, and they close the door

I’m scared I’m scared I’m scared I’m scared

Lights are gone, I hear you stare, and I close my eyes
I think about the thing’s I'll say, how I’ll tell my lies
Not a pull and not a tug, but I feel your hands
not a whisper or a pause, but we understand

I’m scared I’m scared I’m scared I’m scared

I don't want to be alone with you

You make me scared
Track Name: Chum
I saw you
on the ocean floor
oil cover your gills

I turned to look
and you were gone
retching, roe flowing from you

The water relentless against me
I could hardly swim
the seabed murky
with the ghosts of him

But I could still see you
on him, around him

I call out to you
I'm shouting
"Don't leave me here"
But you're lost in him
And he's lost in you

You make something new
and I feel so old
I've got to go
I have to go

And I know they'll tell me
"Sturgeon don't"
but I'll say, I'll say

Ooooooh

sturgeon, sturgeon, sturgeon, sturgeon, sturgeon, sturgeon, sturgeon, sturgeon
Track Name: Shovel
I am the one who digs the graves
thirty dollars an hour
I dig those graves for you

I am the one who weeds the graves
thirty dollars a flower
I dig those graves for you
before you come back through

I'm never going home again
I never wanna leave again
I'm never going home again
I never wanna leave again

I live at home
with my mom
I live at home

Tell me something I don't know
about my hometown
Tell me something I don't know
I want to hear the sound

I'm never going home again
I never wanna leave again
I'm never going home again
I never wanna leave again

I am the one who feels ashamed
when I lie that I've showered
Track Name: Rage Rage
Rage rage
come and take me over
Rage rage
nothing left to bother

I don't want to wait
wishing for a rainy day
It's easy to
sit and waste the day away

And now you found another
come take me undercover
I know you do

Age, age
sleeping in my old bed
Cage, cage
living in my own head

Don't open your mouth
too tired for another sound
I go again
leaving it all on the ground
