Track Name: long
The time is up now
Gotta quickly learn how
How to grow up and tell
All your friends that youre well
And pretend that its warm
While your cold thoughts are forming
And your life is a chore
Well if youre bored then youre boring
And maybe its okay to keep an actual promise
Remember what mom said you werent actually stupid
All along

Theyll change up your face but youre in the same place
Your insides are all the same and nobody knows so just hold your brain
And maybe its okay to be an actual person please teach me a lesson is this even a song
A song
It has been all along
Track Name: family rules
Cheat your way through every test
its not bad in ways it is the best
Kiss your mama kiss her eyelids now
Cuz you will leave her if you dont know how
Write your name on every day
Keep your hands moving keep em clean
Call your brother make him feel wise
Realize that this is papaparadise

Keep your nails trimmed and wipe your eyes
Call your grandma tell her she is nice
Take off your bandaids and let them see the bruise
Announce that you have got some special news

Follow the rules and tell them to your dad
Pick up your sister even if shes mad
Take her to your favorite place to be
A place where you Could die and a place shed be happy
Track Name: song for iris
This is a song for iris

And i dont want you to think this is creepy
I just dont want you to leave me this soon
Oh baby please dont get annoyed
Why do you do this to me my frame is destroyed

I love the way i met you
And i love the way you love the same things i do
Oh baby please dont get freaked out
And dont be gulity or sad i just wanna help

This is a song for iris
And im not sure but she might miss me too
And i dont want you to think this is creepy
I just dont want you to leave me this soon
Oh baby i promise ill get better
It Could be like before i Could write you a letter
Track Name: california
animals
keep biting my hands off
Cuz with my
California belly on the water
California belly on the water i
Cant talk
Stop asking cuz i
Wont walk
Not even with your
California candy will I barter
California candy will I barter
Antidote
keep me closer than you can so
that when its messy I can
go to California with my mother
go to California with my mother
you could call and tell her that you love her
im in California with my mother
Track Name: better as a ghost
i see my mother on the sidewalk
she calls to me and i go
picks me up and she runs with me
and from what i do not know

my fathers crying in the darkness of the house i see him cry
hes been crying since i was born
i was scared but i grew wary of the dark
cuz that was where his heart was torn

my parents kissed my cheeks
goodbye my daughter here you go
i searched for years
but i went nowhere but my home

my sisters laughing in the mirror
but its the kind you can see through
someone told me i look better as a ghost
and it was probably true

my parents kissed my cheeks
goodbye my daughter here you go
i searched for years
but i went nowhere but my home
Track Name: sleep
Please take me
Im sorry
I think i didnt say those things
Its me
Please tell me
Your kidding
Oh please oh please
Take me
Im sorry

I know
Im mean
But please
Im begging
Oh her whos she
She meant nothing

Oh ooooo
What am i supposed to do
Why do this to me
I think i need to sleep

Baby please oh please forgive me
I swear i wont drink
I think youre Amazing
Please oh please take me
Im sorry
Please oh please take me im sorry

Oh ooooo
What am i supposed to do
Why do this to me
I think i need to sleep
And sleep
Cuz we arent what we used to be
I think i need to sleep i think i need to sleep
