Track Name: Capricorn
I had a friend, her life was a shot of vodka
and her hair was pink as a sunset cloud
she didn't know what the hell she was after
little girl, little girl, gonna make mama proud
filled her room with bouquets of flowers
sang a cappella when nobody was around

listen wide-eyed capricorn
no greater pain than being born
Track Name: St. Anne's
can't you hear the cathedral bells?
dark and deep as a wishing well
forgotten hymn falls with the rain
and swirls in a whirlpool down the drain

droplets spread like ink on my shirt
the one that once got covered in dirt
when we slipped down a mudslide in mid-July
I knew right then I never wanted to die

remember the time we swam in the sea?
bodies of salt, bodies of glee
float on my back, looked at the sky
impossible blue, why oh why

can't you hear the cathedral bells?
dark and deep as a wishing well
forgotten hymn falls with the rain
and swirls in a whirlpool down the drain
Track Name: Freckles
crack my knuckles
and I land you a punch
I've got a head full of flowers
and a fist full of love

crack my knuckles
and I land you a punch
I've got a head full of flowers
and a fist full of love

baby loves the moonlight
he counts the stars
he's got constellation freckles
and a face full of scars

doesn't talk much
but when he does, my god
you'll forget how to breathe
and won't see his flaws

crack my knuckles
and I land you a punch
I've got a head full of flowers
and a fist full of love

crack my knuckles
and I land you a punch
I've got a head full of flowers
and a fist full of love
Track Name: Dissolve
he talked of lilacs and dead men
in the same breath
I remember him best when
he began to undress
on a summer night beach
under cocaine stars
skin sweet as a June peach
my love, au revoir

i dissolved into him
i dissolved into him
i dissolved into him
i dissolved into him

I used to taste the peppermint
on his lips
said every word with sentiment
like honey drips
gave away my integrity
like a cheap coupon
oh a love like leprosy
scratch until its gone

i dissolved into him
i dissolved into him
i dissolved into him
i dissolved into him
i dissolved into him
i dissolved into him
i dissolved into him
i dissolved into him
Track Name: Bipolar
oyster shell
mind in hell
take the pills
don’t get ill

voice is loud
thunder cloud
god is deaf
waste of breath

glass of milk
down like silk
count the sheep
try to sleep

oyster shell
mind in hell
take the pills
don’t get ill

happy happy
happy happy
happy happy
happiness
