Track Name: I Hate Me Too
your skin like parchment
my lips the quill and ink

your skin has been untouched
my fingertips drip in envy

my hands can’t stop shaking
my eyelids yearn for sleep

my skull is numb from the pounding
the last words you spoke begging to be set free

that you hate me

as spring fades to summer
my rib cage grows weak

my heart’s been a-thumpin
knocking the wind from me

my skin longs to stick to yours
on dusty, old milwaukee floors

my nails are numb from the hours
contemplating the words that you set free

that you hate me

well I have news for you
I hate me too
Track Name: Drink Up
do you think you’re brave
with your lips around the barrel of your daddy’s gun
mom and dad they’ve paid
thousands maybe millions for you to have your fun

numb your tongue with the whiskey and the rum
run your thumbs up the thighs of the young

your life is so hard
from the parties to the bars
drink up son
make daddy proud of his young
your life is so hard
yet your the one who broke my heart
and I’m the sane one
am I the sane one
for once

and yes I caved
admitted defeat before you could see my lack of light
you think you’re in pain
screaming pity me, boy you’re the one who filled my head with lies
those perfect little lies

numb your tongue with the whiskey and the rum
run your thumbs up the thighs of the young

your life is so hard
from the parties to the bars
drink up son
make daddy proud of his young
your life is so hard
yet your the one who broke my heart
and I’m the sane one
am I the sane one
how could I be the sane one
for once
Track Name: December 20th
I’ve felt colder decembers
With mountains of snow
I’m disappointed with the weather
For I long to feel cold
and need warmth
I want to need your warmth

I’ve seen darker decembers
This light is blinding my mind
Light beams binding together
I’ll burrow in blankets until I find
your warmth
I need your warmth

and on cold winter nights
you’ll remind me

That I am the lucky one

I’ve felt colder decembers
Bundle in mittens scarves and coats
Lying naked along side the fire
and I’ll nibble down your throat
to feel your warmth
I long to feel your warmth
Track Name: Dear Dawnlight,
You’re just an oriole singing songs
To the sailors that have lost their lives at sea
And I’m just a woman sippin’ whiskey
And stumbling off her widow’s peak
The fog rolls in and drowns the town
And the light house sings its summer song
The breeze from the sea
Twirls its way trough the chimes and the willow trees
And you said to me
Dear Dawnlight, of my springtime
Will you forever be mine
Sing me sweet lullabies
You gathered over wintertime
When your heart was exposed to sweet delight
And when the sun kisses the earth goodnight
and we lose the sight of our fireflies
When the stars go back into their outer sky
Will you forever be mine

We rode our bikes for miles on end
Just to dip our feet where the river bends
You promised me you’d love me
Until the morning dove refused to sing
You carried me up to the mountain top
Just to scream our lungs across the town
And you painted me in colors
As vibrant as the changing leaves
And you said to me
Dear Dawnlight, of my springtime
Will you forever be mine
Sing me sweet lullabies
You gathered over wintertime
When your heart was exposed to sweet delight

But when the sun kissed the earth goodnight
and we lost sight of our fireflies
And when the stars went back into their outer sky
I knew you’d never be mine
Track Name: Deadly Sin
Im blinded by lust
Cant see the games youre playin with my heart
My tongue is tied up in knots
But i crave your lips when we’re apart

And im drowning in greed
From the pleasure that you evoke in me
And your touch erupts a fire that leads to need
Im tangled in a desire weed

You’re a deadly sin
I bite your lip suck in your poison
My veins run dry let me breathe you in
Let the fun begin

Yes you’re a deadly sin
Dont leave untouched any inch of my skin
I’ll be your whiskey, you be my gin
Let the fun begin

And you’re swimming in pride
Your ego rips its way out from inside
I see the darkness in your eyes
But I cant help but need to pry my way inside

You make me boil with rage
When you lock my hunger up in its cage
You set me up center stage
And its time to let me play

You’re a deadly sin
I bite your lip suck in your poison
My veins run dry let me breathe you in
Let the fun begin

Yes you’re a deadly sin
Dont leave untouched any inch of my skin
I’ll be your whiskey, you be my gin
Let the fun begin

You’re a deadly sin
Dont leave untouched any inch of my skin
I’ll be your whiskey, you be my gin
Let the fun begin

You’re a deadly sin
Dont leave untouched any inch of my skin
You've been begging me for hours for me to let you in
Let the fun begin
