Track Name: Bookends
It started with you crying,
You said you were in love,
I didn't have to ask with you,
I was in love with you too,

It ended with me crying,
You said you weren't in love,
I didn't have to ask with who,
But I was still in love with you
Track Name: I Never Had Asthma But My Sister Did
I wonder what it'd be like,
If I were to deep sea dive,
Down, down to the bottom of the sea,
With the fish of unusual size,
And their twinkling lights,
I would be far from scared,
If that octopus swam by,
Cause he's just dead star residue,
And so am I,
But there are dangers, I've been told,
Claustrophobia could settle in,
This is, after all, the vast unknown,
I could lose sight of it all,
What if I ran out of air?
I guess I'll just stay here.
What if I ran out of air?
I guess I'll just stay here.

I wonder what it'd be like,
To be above the sky,
High, high where souls shouldn't be,
With the stars of unusual size,
And their twinkling lights,
I would be far from scared,
If that asteroid zoomed by,
Cause it's just dead star residue,
And so am I,
But there are dangers, I've been told,
Claustrophobia could settle in,
This is, after all, the vast unknown,
I could lose sight of it all,
What if I ran out of air?
I guess I'll just stay here.
What if I ran out of air?
I guess I'll just stay here.

I wonder what it'd be like,
To fall in love with you,
Hard, hard into this silly game,
It's just a shame you're the perfect size,
And have those twinkling eyes,
I would be far from scared,
If you asked to hold me tonight,
Cause you're just dead star residue,
And so am I,
But there are dangers, I've been told,
Claustrophobia could settle in,
This is, after all, the vast unknown,
I could lose sight of it all,
What if I ran out of air?
I guess I'll just stay here.
What if I ran out of air?
I guess I'll just stay here.

With you, you say?
Okay, with you.
Track Name: Public Transhit
I don't want to talk to you,
I just want to get to work on time,
I don't want to talk to you,
I want to travel now, not socialize,
I don't want to talk to you,

I don't want to deal with this,
You give me creeps you think are compliments,
I don't want to deal with this,
Stop fucking staring at me and my tits,
I don't want to deal with this,

And it feels like I'm being punished,
For not driving my own damn car,
It's like riding in a petri dish,
With the winners of the worst awards,
Spending my money on a one way ticket,
To discomfort and harassment,
Public transportation can,
Suck my dick,

I hate physical contact,
I've got a stranger's arm around me now,
I hate physical contact,
Space invader's in real life, it's hell,
I hate physical contact,

Come on cut me a break now,
Someone just told me I should tone my look down,
Come on cut me a break now,
While I was writing this, and pat my back... like we're friends. Like that's appropriate in any context. Who do you think you are? Giving me backhanded compliments, telling me I should soften my eyebrows. You're a stranger, your opinion doesn't matter, it's annoying. I'll do my eyebrows however I damn well please.
You gotta cut me a break now.

Don't get me wrong,
It's not all bad,
There's still some good eggs in the carton,
They're all sitting here,
Just like me,
Wearing headphones,
And dark sunglasses,
Trying to shut out the world,
But nothing can really stop crazy when it's determined,
Busses can be scary places, so ride with courage.
Track Name: Riot Boy
The night you tied the noose,
I was in my lover's room,
For the first time,
With a deck of tarot cards in my hand,
I hear it was around,
The time you kicked it down,
That I held those cards,
I was staring at the hanged man,

The more you know,
The more that you know,
The more you can let it all sink in,
The time it takes,
To realize you're awake,
Grows shorter with each life that you see end,

Someone I used to know,
Said, "Don't get comfortable,
With those you love,
Suddenly they'll all start to die"
I couldn't see it coming,
But nothing can prepare you,
In that moment I did howl instead of cry
Track Name: Feminecessary
I'm told I'm being too bossy again
Sorry would you rather I hold your hand?
Cause I don't have time to be meek and shy
I need to get shit done

I'm asserting myself too much
But that's the only way to get what I want
Can't sit back and wait I need food on my plate
I gotta make my way

I don't know yet what it's like
To be respected day and night
My brain and my body are mine
But ask around and you will find
People claiming, for me, they know better
People voting to keep my pay lower
Girls so scared to say no, if they don't, we've been showed, risk being murdered
I am much more than my gender
We're all much more than our gender

Oh no I'm being a bitch again
Cause I don't want to play pretend
Like my feelings are void cause I'm not one of the boys
I gotta say what I feel

I have consensual sex all we want
And only shave when I feel like it, son
And I wear what I like
And I carry a pink stun gun

I don't know yet what it's like
To be respected day and night
My brain and my body are mine
But ask around and you will find
People claiming, for me, they know better
People voting to keep my pay lower
Girls so scared to say no, if they don't, we've been showed, risk being murdered
I am much more than my gender
We're all much more than our gender

Look I'm a boss I'm not bossy
I'm just asserting my autonomy
And if I am I bitch I'll mark my territory
On the patriarchy
Track Name: Jessica
Jessica wore leopard print
And her hair looked like cinnamon
I don’t remember much of this
Except that we were little kids

She had a flecked and freckled face
And wore pigtails most every day
At recess she and I would play
We were in the second grade

One day she came to school and said
They’d found a tumor in her head
Didn't know just what that meant back then
I just hoped that she’d still be my friend

One final time she came to class
Stuffed animals tight in her grasp
She told us that she soon would pass
We didn’t know it’d come so fast

I noticed then how much she shook
She gave us one last frightened look
When death it came, her life it took
Her smile lives in my yearbook

Well Jessica was my best friend
I didn't know her life could end
I hoped that it was all pretend
I wonder who she could have been
Track Name: Pep Talk
I know it feels like part of you is dying
And everyone is talking bout time healing
And nothing seems to help, not even crying
Most of the time you wish you could stop feeling

Everybody's is saying it gets better it gets better
But ambiguity is terrifying
When your heart is weak, and you can't sleep. Your eyes keep getting wetter.
Remember that you can't give up! Keep trying.
Remember that you can't give up! Keep trying!
