Track Name: Bad News
All those girls who walk alone in the road
They’ll tell ya, “She’s barkin’ mad, I’m told.”
Mamas pull your girls away from the view
And tell them “she’s bad bad bad bad news.”

Preacher says, “Don’t pull that fruit from the vine,
Only the wicked walk that line.
She’s got bruises on her knees that ain’t from the pews,
I’ll tell ya, she’s bad bad bad bad news.”

You won’t see these girls apologize
Did what they have to to survive
Don’t let me hear you accuse
And tell me “she’s bad…”

All those girls who walk alone in the road
They’ll tell ya, “She’s barkin’ mad, I’m told.”
Mamas pull your girls away from the view
And tell them “she’s bad news.”
Track Name: Embryo
I demand the whole universe
I banned the moon, and the stars dispersed
Unnecessary, a child who wears the crown
I reign over no one, not a soul bows down

I got no memories
To keep me satisfied
Just these melodies
That keep me up at night
Deep inside of me
There’s a light that’s hiding
I have no one left to satisfy me

Our worlds collide
Can’t shake the fear inside
We won’t survive
Another fall

I got no memories
To keep me satisfied
Just these melodies
That keep me up at night
Deep inside of me
There’s a light that’s hiding
I have no one to satisfy me
Track Name: Play With Fire
Hold your sighs
I want to captivate you
For a while
And see the colors all reflected
In your eyes
Just once let’s watch the sun rise

Trapped inside my lungs
With wounded pride
And swollen tongue
I will try to disregard
The past mistakes lasting scars
That we get when we play with fire

Noises disappear
When I realize my dear
That nothing in this world is sincere
When time is on the line

Trapped inside my lungs
With wounded pride and swollen tongue
I will try to disregard
The past mistakes and lasting scars
That we get when we play with fire
Track Name: You Will Be Saved
I am on the run
All I have is a gun
They're coming for me
They're coming for me

Breathe in, breathe out

[Chorus]
Come join us at the table
We know you're living,
Living in sin
Just follow his word, oh
You will be saved
You will be saved

Why would he save me
When I'm already good
Does anything lie ahead?
Does anything lie ahead?

[Chorus]

Breathe in, breathe out

There are no heroes
Just those that don't die.
Track Name: Wasted Time
I wish those eyes weren't so deranged
I wish the weather wouldn't change
Nothing stays the same
In this world of mine

When life's unraveled and untamed
You start to question all the sane
I can't figure
What sickness festers
In your brain

Don't romanticize the times
That he said, "I will reclaim what's mine"
When the gentle breath of love subsides
And the tears they dry all that's left
Is all of that wasted time

I should have noted all the days
And all the times I saw your rage (your age)
Sick of making excuses
For the way you behave

An eerie sense of foreboding lies
In the times you said, "Babe you know you're mine,"
Should have noticed all those warning signs
Should have cut the ties
Before you mangled the rest of my life

I can no longer stand to romanticize
Every time I was objectified
When the gentle breath of love subsides
And the tears they dry all that's left
Is all of that wasted time
All of that wasted time
Track Name: Undo
The water’s rising, up my waist
But I’ve adjusted to its cold embrace
I’m hardly fazed

Half-solutions, repainted walls
Empty resolutions, standing tall,
But nothing’s changed at all
How will I look into somebody’s eyes
And think, “Yeah, here I’ll be alright,
And I’ll be safe, I’ll be just fine.”

And if I could turn back the time
And erase all of the bullshit that I’d
Wind myself into, and I’d undo
The things that led me to…

The window’s cracks are making webs
It’s still intact but hanging by a thread

The seasons change faster than the
Locks did on the day that you stormed out
So now I go without

When will I look into somebody’s eyes
And think, “Yeah, here I’ll be alright,
And I’ll be safe, I’ll be just fine.”
And if I could turn back the time
And erase all of the bullshit that I’d
Wind myself into, and I’d undo…

When will someone’s arms not feel so strange
And will I say “This time it will change”

Again, I won’t predict the ending
If I could turn back the time
Escape the hell and problems I would
Wind myself into, and I’d undo
Whatever led me to you
Track Name: You Should Have Locked the Door
The paint is chipping all around the windowsill
There are cracks running up the walls
There are holes that were drilled
With good intentions, all those plans never came to fruition

You took your ashtray and most of your clothes
You told me to keep your mattress and turned to go
So the first thing I did was grab some detergent and Clorox
To scrub every stain, every smell, every trace of you

I refused your letters; I blocked all your calls
I got rid of the pictures but I’m still stuck
With all of these holes in the wall

I’m just scared a day will come that the world will
Decide, “You’ve been hurting too long”
And when I try to show you the bruises that ache
In every vein and you’ll tell me, “I see nothing”
I can fill pages, I’ll play the game
And I’ll weep every time I hear that song’s refrain

People keep asking, “Why’d you come here?
Where if the winters don’t kill you, someone else will”
And as years have gone by, I shake my head and sigh
And I’ll tell you, “I wish that I knew.”
