Crazy Eyes 03:06
You called me it's plain to see what we could be but we are done I tried to speak but you keep tearing me down Now I know it cannot be Now it's plain to see What you're doing to me Don't you try to hide, Don't you try to hide Don't you try to hide your crazy eyes Breath in and take a step back from me Borderline personality baby You scratch pull and claw down on me Oh no how dare you flip the switch on me Now it's plain to see What you're doing to me Don't you try to hide, Don't you try to hide Don't you try to hide your crazy eyes You called me it's plain to see what we could be but we are done Now it's plain to see What you're doing to me Don't you try to hide, Don't you try to hide Don't you try to hide your crazy eyes

Oh oh babe don't you change a single word you say Don't go changing your mind today Just please stop it and come and play Right here I'm open is right where I was broken before And in this lifetime I count in seconds is that a crime? Now don't you fret you'll be getting your best best rest right before we go out on the town coat and feathers on a winter gown I'll pour some whiskey as the vinyl spins Waiting for you to call Right here I'm open is right where I was broken before And in this lifetime I count in seconds is that a crime?

Well I'm afraid I'm yours (2X) Possibilities run through my head But I just tell myself that I can't be said But I'm afraid I'm yours (2X) Tell me why when I get home That I'm just dying to be left alone But when I get here - and here's the truth All I think about is touching you. Well I'm afraid I'm yours (4X) Take a peak in, from the outside groove on closer dear, let me whisper in your ear That I'm afraid I'm yours (2X) Well I'm afraid I'm yours (2x)

Millennials 04:13
Whoa I went down to the coin exchange they were singing my name To find, find why I guard the heart that you could never tame. And now the road to perdition claims the bills are piling high They can't see that I can't die with the music still inside But you're the one who lifts me up and gives me some release And still, still the ice is frozen still- Will I ever obtain The love that will all of my everlasting gains And now the broker has made his claim demanding that I find Find a way to sell my soul with my basement dwelling pains But you're the one who lifts me up and gives me some release

Mind Bug 03:06
The details in the fabric tend to sway the other way Now I can't tell if I'm coming or if I'm here to stay One thing's for certain like a spill on a page You'll thin out and fade as the page number changes I'm sorry honey but this is a blockade Against closure with someone else in this game So why oh why does it burn in the night when it's cold as a tomb Why oh why did the mind bugs crawl closer when your skin went missing There's a round eyed little redhead in a picture-less frame And this time I swear that everyone is out for their name Will you turn your head outside and slowly utter out my name? No but maybe you'll see it when someone's digging your grave So once again I'm wrong, and once again I'm right The calendar has fallen and blackened the time So why oh why does it burn in the night when it's cold as a tomb Why oh why did the mind bugs crawl closer when your skin went missing And the impulse has fired now it will burn till my grave So I pour over this agent that takes patience for cleansing The cliche is done so have fun with his change And the thing that will haunt me babe is I never thought you're that way So why oh why does it burn in the night when it's cold as a tomb Why oh why did the mind bugs crawl closer when your skin went missing

Rabbit Hole 03:13
If they call you Geronimo it's cause you're fast to let her go Staring off to the end of the room her pretty eyes have matched your soul But oh oh oh you shouldn't chase her down the rabbit hole (2X) All the tempted blood has flow all down to the place way down below Her glass is empty so you are fast to make approach But oh oh oh you shouldn't chase her down the rabbit hole (2X) As if all those sugar daddies couldn't match your whoa You're so so excited you forgot about your baby at home Geronimo I've told you before you've got to slow your roll So oh oh oh you shouldn't chase her down the rabbit hole... Someone so groomed and tall came from the restroom stall Androgynous they say- hey buddy get your own But oh oh oh you shouldn't chase her down the rabbit hole (4X)
