Track Name: nu haircut
u drift in2 most things, and i find it weeeird

but i don't wanna, i don't wanna care, but yr energy still lingers in the air. and i look over, i look over there, i see yv done something with yr hair
Track Name: child of a-
child of a beast, dying 2 be set free
stuck in the WWW., pleading on yr knees
a child of privilege - desperate to distance
yrself from the source, but never will be done (ofc)

address me different (but yr still a child of)
be in involved in art (but yr still a child of)
be involved in 'community' (but yr still a child of)
yr still a child of whence you came
yr still a child of where yh came
Track Name: stay safe!!!
alone inside, part of me i try to hide, you touch my skin, sometimes i can't feel the skin i'm in. a performance of sorts, a litany of self-defensive retorts, to keep me sane

to keep me, to keep me safe,
to keep me, afraid of myself

living in state, desperately trying not to hate myself, a victim of circumstance, i wish i could circumvent the fate that was set out for me, can't u see

how hard, how hard i try
to want to live, and not to die

when yr there, i appreciate u, but i'm sure, even yr aware, there's only so much u can do, and the same goes 4 u (and the same goes 4 u)
Track Name: a problem
a problem with me
a problem with this
can't move my legs
can't move my head
stale and stubborn
what did i do to deserve this
what did i do to deserve myself
it's you i care the most about in this (in this)

a dramatic monologue,
yr wondering when i'm gonna stop
me, airing my self deprecation on our mutual clothes-line
do i have any tact lat all?
go and see a therapist,
just like everyone else
a problem with me
a problem with this
Track Name: a jitter to shatter
the itch is in other places, i try to reason, to relocate, the base need, but it is just no use.

the itch is in other places, a jitter to shatter, a twinge in the elbow.

a crack in the dominion of career. standing still, for just one more minute, but it is just no use.
Track Name: blame game
engineered to be something that i'm not
always in the middle of a war i'll never win, continuing and never dying, it's a part of my conditioning.
is it a part of my parenting?
is it a part of the place i was born?

take responsibility for it anyway
i am guilty, guilty guilty, every day
for something i didn't want, in the first place

but at least you loved me for who i am, and not for who i'm not
Track Name: yv undone a lace b4
confidence in the bucket,
thought about you but, fuck it
rooted 2 the dirt
leaving it would just hurt
broken concepts of trust
deliberation of contact is a must
friends like a transfer
nepotism, i'm damn sure

yv undone a lace like this b4

standing like a piece of the furniture,
constantly awaiting yr overture
i wish i could say that this was the first time
giving you another, on-top of another chance was my first crime
it was my milk crime
Track Name: theme from "can't go straight"
whenever i open the door, i still can't quite see the floor
i go to move forward, still can't quite see the floor

i can't go straight,
no matter how hard i think i want to try

some implied automation,
a veneer to mask my frustration,
a cis-tem that wasn't setup for me,
it's not a place that i wanna be
