Track Name: Love Them Too (week 1)
First things first/ they should know/ that I have demons, they follow me/ wherever I go./ You nodded and said/ “I understand”/ I said “I don’t think you do”/ they’re the kind that never sleep/ and always follow you./ If you love me/ then you love them too/ and if you can’t then/ what am I to do?/ but wish that they’d/ disappear/ but they’ll always-/ they’ll always be here/ doot doot doo/ Nothing scares me more/ than thinking they’ll win somehow/ every night they scratch at my door/ leaving claw marks and what if’s in a pile/ echoes and howls/ reminders that they’re/ still around./ what if you can’t love me/ and love them too?/ they’re apart of me/ although I wish/ I do/ that somehow/ I could cast them out/ maybe then I’d love me too/ most things scare me/ if I sleep in peace/ its a rarity/ oh/ know that I wish I could change/ oh god/ I wish I could outgrow/ these childish fears and the days/ I sleep all da-aaaay/ what if you can’t love me/ and love them too?/ No amount of love can cast them out/ I know that now, I do/ maybe I’ll always live without?
Track Name: Wings (week 2)
When I was a kid/ I thought I saw an angel/ No one else saw her/ but I did/ And the memory stayed with me like a stranger/ never leaving/ never fully knowing what was in front of me/ who was in front of me/ go back inside, kid/ you don’t know where she’s been/ hold onto to what you know, child/ you’ll never tame the wind it’s wild/DaVinci never flew/ human’s are simply doomed/ to walk this earth/ and never know/ the birds quiet flight/ into the night/ When I first saw her/ could’ve sworn I was in a dream/ there she was standing/ with her giant feathered wings/ “I’m here to take you away,” she said/ with her eyes/ she didn’t speak/ “To liberate you, to give you the freedom that comes with wings”/go back inside kid/ you don’t know where she’s been/ hold onto what you know child/ you’ll never tame the wind, it’s wild/ DaVinci never flew, humans are simply doomed/ to walk this earth/and never know a birds quiet flight into the night/ hold on tight/ what I would give to kiss the sky/ what I would give to never touch this earth again/ what can I trade you/ I asked/ nothing she replied/ the sky, it freely gives/ when I was a child/ I thought I saw an angel/ But I was wrong/ she was just like me/ two eyes/ two hands/ two feet/ and a mouth/ and a pair of wings/ that she could never, never live without
Track Name: Type O (week 3)
Come on, suck on my jugular / Tell me I'm the best song you've ever heard/ the sweetest delicacy you've ever tasted/ the prettiest soul you've ever wasted/ don't you know/ I'm type O/ I'll give until I can't/ Until my veins run dry/ till I'll never sing again/ poison tasted so sweet/ evil always brings us to our knees/ and I'll- I'll always fall in love with the wrong man/ only now am I beginning to understand/ don't you know/ I'm type O/ I'll give until I can't/ until my veins run dry/ until I'll never sing again/ Up in flames/ we fall to our knees/ Blood dripping from your canines like/ sweet relief/ tell me now, darling/ can you hear those angels sing?/ give into the withdraw symptoms/ this new thirst for this red wine/ the holy communion of/ body and blood/ tell me now, darling/ who is your chosen one?/ Don't you know/ I'm type O/ I'll give until I can't/ Until my veins run dry/ Until I'll never sing again
Track Name: Laws of Physics and Motion (week 4)
It's not that I'm clumsy/ I've just forgotten gravity/ I'm not used to this weight on my chest/ something tells me this is the lightest it's gonna get/ it's the impact that kills you/ not the fall/ I've got a bad case of homesickness/ for a planet thats yet to be found/ I fed the fire those cedar logs/ And I greeted all those stars myself/ Its the impact that kills you not the fall/ We left this love/ bleeding in the dark/ we watched it sit there in the road/ and even when it cried for help/ we couldn't help but watch it all bleed out/ / it's just like Isaac said himself/ what goes up/ must come down now/ honey, this is battle uphill/ this descent into space/ always ends in a cliff drop/ in a deadly escape
Track Name: Whole Without You (week 5)
I know you've seen some things/ things only the walls should see/ I know you're hurting/ but it doesn't give you the right/ to hurt me/ you get what you give/ so I'm giving out love/ I know it doesn't seem fit/ for this anger in your lungs/ it's eaten away at you/ its all that remains/ the only thing thats left/ pumping through your veins/ you don't own me/ don't know what I can do/ this voice is my own/ this song is mine too/ I'm whole without you/ I'm whole without you/ I'm whole without you/ oooooo/ ooh/ you can't hold me down/ I'm going so far/ across the water/ you threw me into the air/ but I skim across this lake/ going farther and faster/ maybe you've made/ a mistake/ you don't own me/ don't know what I can do/ this voice is my own/ this song is mine too/ I'm whole without you/ I'm whole without you/ I'm whole without you/ if you're an angel/ I'd rather go to hell/ at least I've got some friends down there/ and you can have all the time in the world to yourself/ if you're an angel/ I'll be the devil/ I'd rather be the opposite of you/ have nothing in common with ya/ oooo/ aaaaaaah/ I'm whole without you/ I'm whole without you/ I'm whole without you/ I'm whole without you/
Track Name: Hunger (week 6)
I’m hungry for a truth/ I know I’ll never find/ Just running in the dark/ without a flashlight/ little red, little red/ have you lost your way?/ don’t listen to all the sweet things/ older men have to say/ get yourself a knife/ own the night/ leave them begging for a light/ and give them nothing/ give them nothing/ you all thirst for our youth/ as it leaves us behind/ just clutching at our faces/ lost our looks but we still have our minds/ little red, little red/ have you lost your way?/ don’t listen to all the sweet things/ older men have to say/ get yourself a knife/ own the night/ leave them begging for a light/ and give them nothing/ give them nothing/ you say you’re starving/ but you don’t know what its like to need/ you say you’re starving but you’re always at a feast/ you say you’re wanting/ but you own everything/ you say you’re wanting but you’re just full of greed/ you're just full of greed/ little red, little red/ have you lost your way?/ don't listen to all the sweet things/ older men have to say/ get yourself a knife/ own the night/ leave them begging for a light/ and give them nothing/ give them nothing
