Track Name: cut away
cut away
cut away "oh feels good"
"oh feels good", no better than

bring me my blade
there's someone i want to cut
they've been using my name
it's time for them to try their luck

cut away
cut away "oh, feels right"
"oh feels right", no better than
Track Name: doll's hallway
heaven is a crutch thank you very much
I want you to touch me in a new place

hopscotch in front of me tells me where I oughta be
coming up

doll's house hallway becomes your future
a door is a door is a door is not a symbol

i'm gonna go to sleep have a dream go far away
no motherfucker's gonna tell me
how to be happy in my little doll shaped place in the community
Track Name: cat's inside

i know why


i know why

cat's inside

cataract's inside

clarity of hunger makes me see

i am one with the enemy
Track Name: the most believable voice
it'll wait
it'll wait
it'll wait
it'll wait on you

see, what you don't know is
you have the most believable voice in the world

i'll regret
i'll regret
i'll regret
i'll regret on you
Track Name: automatic
sweet automatic me
never checks if she's awake
never pinches her own skin
to check the fact of her own weight

sweet automatic me
never learned to bribe herself
never cut her brain in two
and all she ever needs to do
is go outside away from you

sweet automatic me
says it never hurts to walk away
laughs at me when i say
"i wish i'd never seen a mirror"
Track Name: stop my hand
would you stop?
would you stop my hand?
would you stop my hand?

i don't want
to be the kind of man
that uses his hand like that

i don't want
i don't want to find
you're more like i than i thought

keep me
keep me, keep your head
higher than my heart
Track Name: hand in mouth
putting my arm in the mouth of a dog
i need her teeth to teach me im wrong
i need her hunger to show me im dumb

when you've put the wrong thing inside you again
a dumb hungry dog can be your best friend
just take off your clothes and lay on the floor
and let her tear some of you off of yourself
Track Name: only quiet
quiet the only honesty,
don't know
quiet the only lie,
don't know
