Track Name: Aerosal
Touch me with insanity
Rape me with serenity

Trapped in a mind of love and fear

Forgiveness comes when you're on all fours
My body's my own mind's whore

Trapped in a mind of love and fear
Track Name: Paper Weights
You come on down me like the acid rain
Is it you or I to blame
Each apology just sounds the same
I'm the trophy you use as a paper weight

Never have I ever, whatever

I'm not a prince, I am a frog
I'm not a person, I am a blob
I'm not a friend, I am a job
One alienation under dog

Never have I ever, whatever
Track Name: Shattered Glass
Fill your dusty champagne glass
To the top with ignorance and crass
With gunpowder and a switch
That's too sensitive to exist

And let it go

Be ready to fire and fall
A Styrofoam wrecking ball
Make it seem intimidating
When fired, still does nothing

Let it go

Why, oh why, must you be so crass
I see through you like shattered glass
Track Name: Waste of a Pretty Face
Not all bridges are meant to stay
Sometimes, they've held up enough
You can only take so much weight
Sometimes it's just healthier to give up

When verbal words are no longer exchanged
The bathroom stalls tell what they won't say
Written like a verse from a biblical page:
"What a waste of a pretty face"

You haven't been treated well
In fact, you've been through Hell
But if you change who you are
They'll love you, but you'll hate yourself
Track Name: Shortcuts
I'm here to help, but not to be helped
I'll figure it all out by myself
Settle in because there's no way out of this Hell
Even if I wanted to, I couldn't wish you well

Selling your heart over to teenage lust
Give in to your body while your heart starts to rust
My ears are wide open but I still cannot hear
Trapped in a mind of love and fear

Growing down instead of growing up
There's got to be some sort of shortcut
I'm so tired but I just woke up
The politics of giving up
