Track Name: To Be Young
how can I keep my shoes tied
clean up on the inside
go to bed by midnight
so I can see the sunlight?

I want to see the sunlight

if it wasn't this inertia
I'd run away to russia
dance with who I wanna
like anna karenina

so I say no no no no
I don't want to go home no no no
I don't wanna grow old no no no no
I can live this bold all on my lonesome

perhaps we'll get just what we want to
if we pretend we want you
sweet-dream you up a new hue of
blue to match the sky to

oh, I bet you wish you were young again

I want to live my past life
this one goes so fast by
I'm bored just like a housewife
of cleaning up the inside
of cleaning up the inside

so I say no no no no no
I don't wanna go home no no no no
I don't wanna grow old no no no no
I can live forever, just on my own time

so I say no no no no no
I don't wanna go home no no no no
I don't wanna grow old no no no no
I can live this bold all on my own time
Track Name: Everything
It isn't very beautiful
the way i hate how I am
how I don't know many things
and obsess over romance

these days I fall in love everything
anyone who passes by
any canopy of blossoms
or sounds whispering 'cross the sky

I fall in love with everything
but no things notice
my deep care and devotion
each retarded emotion

I fall so hard i laugh
surrounded by strangers who think
maybe i am crazy in wide open public spaces
I fall so hard I cry
for no reason or rhyme
for hours till I have to sleep or i'll die
I swear I'll die

I'm never hungry like i used to be
I'm never satisfied with anything
but I fall in love with everything
unless it's cloudy
with a chance of rain

I fall in love with everything
but no things notice
my deep care and devotion
each retarded emotion

it isn't very beautiful
the way that this comes across
you won't like it you'll get lost
in my narcissistic, desperate
and melancholic thoughts

I fall in love with everything
but no things notice
my deep care and devotion
each retarded emotion
Track Name: Big Star
since she fell from the clouds
hit the ground
and broke her bones
since she fell from the ground
hit the ground
and broke her bones

she showers in a golden chain
she's shaving for all of the sun rays
raving smokers, memories sink in
her hair reeking of nicotine
she got bottle service somehow
along with the cats she knows now
being sweet has got her so far
she's convinced she'll
be a big star

since she fell from the clouds
hit the ground
and broke her bones
since she fell from the ground
hit the ground
and broke her bones

my mind, my mind
carnivorous as a bird of night
my heart, it binds
like clasping hands and young lover's fright
ghost limb, go lightly
in shadows cast by lightning
I'll hide away my innocence
and learn to nevermind it

my mind, oh mine
it took no time to feel unrefined
with time, i'll bind
and youth will pass like a slow sunrise
my limbs will find me
I'll learn to cool the night's heat
and when I find me, never remind me
never remind me of this

since she fell from the clouds
hit the ground
and broke her bones
since she fell from the ground
hit the ground
and broke her bones
Track Name: To Me To You
there ain't no use in being twilight blue
if I've done it to you than I have done it to me to
I can be dark as the back of the moon
like the place in your heart where you cover up the through
couldn't see the gap but I felt subdued
shouldn't have kissed back but he kissed me too

lets just turn red
I'll slip out of your head
and you'll stray out of my bed
put an end to our restlessness
lets try feel less
I'll slip out of consciousness
and you stray 8 to 10 steps ahead
put an end to whatever was left

I ain't been covered up since the day I was born
I wish I knew less but I think I know more
now I'm looking at your floor now about to take my last bow
wasn't sure how to keep my head from the black clouds
I could ignore everything that I know
nothing to reap if there is nothing I've sewn

unwillingly we now unravel
learned to glide through night avoiding peril
mind the cage to cease its rattles
but my face it tells it shows by shadows
turn on a heel back to the hallows
my heart won't die aside the gallows

there ain't no use in being twilight blue
what I've done to you you've done to me too
has your heart gone dark as the back of the moon
where is the place that you covered up the truth
are we going backwards
what s the use
what gets passed to me, gets passed back to you
to me
to you
