Track Name: Throwin' Shade
Catch me up
What did I miss out on the last few months?
Blow me down
I’ve been an emotional straw house
Mmm and you’re the Big Bad Wolf

Ask me how I’m doin’
Ask me what I’ve been up to without you needin’ me
I don’t wanna go back
I don’t wanna go back
I don’t
Wanna
Go back
Livin’ this way
Throwin’ Shade

Burn this bed
Get me up and over this foggy feeling
I’ve been sweatin’ bullets
I’m over caffeinated and hungover
I’m doin’ great, thanks for askin’

Ask me how I’m doin’
Ask me what I’ve been up to without you needin’ me
I don’t wanna go back
I don’t wanna go back
I don’t
Wanna
Go back
Livin’ this way
Throwin’ Shade
Track Name: Poison Pen
Belladonna on your poison pen
Write it down, and let’s never speak of it again
I’ve been losing sleep over you lately
I’m wide-awake by the break of noon

Keeling over, my face turning blue
I never thought you would really see this through
I’ve been moaning like a cat gone crazy
Wondering how I’m gonna get to you

Because I wanna know what you’re like when you make love
I wanna know how you lie when you get caught
I wanna know what you use to draw blood
I wanna fall at your feet and never get up
I wanna watch you wail and speak in tongues
I wanna see you sweat, you wanna see me run
I wanna grow old and stir shit up
I want you to take me in and show me love
Track Name: Feelin' Wild
Feelin’ wild
Feelin’ lonely
Feels like you’re not here anymore
Now I’m trying to wrap my mind around you being gone

I’m feelin’ lazy
I’m binging FRIENDS
The cats are starting to stress me out
I cover my head, I breathe in, and freak out

I’ve been going through the haze
Losing count of the days
And it always feels so strange
That I will always have more to say to you

I’ve been trying hard to find
A new way to ease my mind
And a day where I don’t try to keep it all bottled up inside
Mmmm

I’ve been going through the haze
Losing count of the days
And it always feels so strange
That I will always have more to say to you
Track Name: Fear and Self-Loathing in St. Paul
Oh, please hear me now I’ve done all I could
It’s like you’re trying to pay me out, but the money ain’t that good
What if we went back and tried to sort it out?
Would you still be with me now?

Oh, self-loathing, how you whisper in my ear
“This place is boring, don’t you wanna get out of here?”
When you hear that voice you have to find yourself
And admit you need the help

Because there’s a light that just won’t dim
And a love that never dies
No matter how hard you try
If you still want to try
Track Name: Find A Way
There hasn’t been a day that’s gone by
Where I could get you off my mind
And nothing I could ever do
Can explain the way that you drive me
Crazy, Bonkers, Mad
But I’ll feel that any ol’ chance I can
For you I’ll travel any land
If I could find a way to be your man

I’ve been dreaming all about the mundane
The ways that we could waste our days, and you’d say
“I’m never getting out of this bed. Baby, go and make me some eggs right away!”
And it’s strange, but I enjoy that so much more
Than dreaming of monsters and waking up on the floor
For you, I’d be a steady hand
If I could find a way to be your man

If I knew you then like I know you know
I know you can’t see in
But I woulda let you see out

Oh, for you I’d learn to love again
If I could find a way to be your man
Track Name: Pillow Top
Sing for me
Oh, you little songbird
Why do you leave when I need you the most?
Hold strong
You tiny little tree branch
You weren’t made to carry those icicles
And it’s only getting colder
It’s only getting colder

You see me from outside of my window
Trying to move on
You hear me trying to sing your songs
I don’t know what you did and I’m gettin’ ‘em wrong
Gettin’ ‘em wrong

Welcome me, my pillow top bed
I’m needing sleep and you won’t leave me alone
Count me in
I can’t figure out when to come
But I know where I’m supposed to begin

You see me from outside of my window
Trying to move on
You hear me trying to sing your songs
I don’t know what you did and I’m gettin’ ‘em wrong
Gettin’ ‘em wrong
Track Name: Still On My Mind
Trying to write but the page is staying blank
It comes and it goes
I’ve never been one to be short on words
Or so I am told by the people I know
And the people I know
Are still on my mind

You’ve been awful quiet for a while
Is something wrong?
You’ve been known to do this from time to time
You’re here like a ghost
You’re gone like your soul
But what do I know?
You’re still on my mind all of the time

I can’t wait around for things to change
Or for you to say things are better this way
It hurts less every day, but you’re still on my mind
Track Name: To Deal With You
These days I've been restless
I've been reckless
I've been fooled
Into thinking that some substance
Some abuse
Might get rid of you

I've been lying to myself
Thinkin' I could use the help
To deal with you

Right now, I am hungry
Sittin' alone, and wide awake
Surfin' waves of sorrow
And what tomorrow brings
I'm afraid

I've been lyin' to you, man
Thinkin' things will never change
But now nothing's the same

I've been lyin' to myself
Thinkin' I could use the help
To deal with you
Track Name: New Normal
I’ve been goin’ every day
In and out of freakin’ out
I hear you all the time saying “let me go”
Or “let me out”

But anything you say to me is all I really need
If you have anything to say to me, do it please

Man, I’m really gettin’ spent
Tryna thinka where to go
Or where you went
There’s a new normal now
Or so they say anyhow


But anything you say to me is all I really need
If you have anything to say to me, do it please
Track Name: Out Of Reach
You beg for further proof
That I'm still in love with you
You're out of my reach and no matter what I do
I fear that I'll never get ahold of you

Oh, if I never let you go
This wouldn't have been a problem at all
Oh my, get outta my head
It's like we'll never love like that again

Give me a time, give me a day
Give me anything that I could say
The distance ain't easy and money gets tight
But I'd do anything to be there that night

Oh, if I never let you go
This wouldn't have been a problem at all
Oh my, get outta my head
It's like we'll never live like that again
Track Name: Skeezy Motel
When we wake up
We think of what we're gonna say to each other
We get made up
And talk about each other's lovers

When did you meet him?
What does he do to get you rarin'?
What are your feelings
On you and I gettin' a little distracted?
I don't want to be some skeezy motel fucker
Don't wanna run off
And I don't wanna be the reason why you'd leave your lover

Give me a shoulder
I'll give you something that you can cry on
I'm always the man you know that you can rely on
And you're running
You're chasing a goal that can't be acquired
I know you have been running so much that it's making you tired

But I'm not running
And I'm not scared
And I'm not tired yet

When we wake up
We think of what we're gonna say to each other
We get made up
And talk about each other's lovers
