Track Name: Full Name
call me by my full name, no.
there are hens in the yard next door
ma collects the pretty pens again
little girls play house they must pretend

change the way i part my hair
make me choose a man, it's fair.
a modest house, a picket fence
we break our bread we make amends

we take our breath, we take it slow
you fill each lung and still want more
something said sad
something said true
something i change for him and...
for him and...

finish something worth your time
take advice from yours, not mine
share a fear of falling through
create a self you won't approve

we take our breath, we take it slow
you fill each lung and still want more
something said sad
something said true
something i change for him and...
for him and...

call me by my full name, no.
Track Name: Lazy Waltz
pray for grace but got garbage
oh what a waste
I can't help but feel so out of place
touch my nose with my one lazy eye closed
i don't worry when it gets out of control

brush your hand on my cheek
wake up it's been weeks
since i opened my mouth up to speak
this waltz is always out of time
you were furthest away when i called you mine

when i called you mine

you're a curse on my plans
what's worse is i can't write you out
you bleed through this pen
i can't pretend to forget all about you
your face, your bad moods, your hands

once in a while, i let my thoughts reside
where we were once in harmony
so many chances i still find i'm dancing
alone with these two left feet

don't ask when it's over, it never began
i've run out of rules to bend.
it's only good if you lose all your composure
it's only real if it comes to an end

if it comes to an end

you're a curse on my plans
what's worse is i can't write you out
you bleed through this pen
i can't pretend to forget all about you
your face, your bad moods, your hands
Track Name: Rust
dime a dozen, tell me you don't love me anymore
i put myself into this rut, i cannot cut another cut
i wipe the dust upon my fingertips
the rust inside those perfect lips
i cannot kiss and kiss and tell, i cannot kiss and kiss and

five years on this train
and yet i knew you by a different name
this tree of life it has a face
i've seen it twice to fall from grace
say oh, say i fly like a boy
say oh, say i fly like a ...

i put your picture on the wall,
i won a prize for you, how we fall apart
i tell myself i'll stay away, still its back again
to dime a dozen tell me you don't love me anymore
i put myself into this rut i cannot cut another cut

five years on this train
and yet i knew you by a different name
this tree of life it has a face
i've seen it twice to fall from grace
say oh, say i fly like a boy
say oh, say i fly like a ...

i wipe the dust upon my fingertips
the rust inside those perfect lips
i cannot kiss and kiss and
oh, well i fly like a boy
and i say oh, well i fly like a...
Track Name: Perfect Guy
mom i met a man
would you believe it, cause i can't
i'm learning how to behave and to forget
just where i came from
i want to make you proud, but i don't know how to say no,
and he holds me so tightly, i have nowhere else to go

he says, "you're owned by me, by me"
he says, "you're owned by me, by me
so i will take what i please
you are owned by me by me"

he says, "you're a doll, you're a vision so i want you,
pinned up on this wall to show my wife
what she is lacking, tell my sons where to call,
remind myself i am a man.
so i may take what i please.
you are owned by me by me.
you are owned by me by me.
you are owned by me by me."

bind my feet to stay with you.
what i would and wouldn't do
to stay stuck in this day dream with a perfect guy like you
so i'll get used to the blood
i'll learn how not to speak
i deserve every reaction
i deserve to feel so weak

he says, "you're owned by me, by me."
he says, "you're owned by me, by me
so i will take what i please
you are owned by me by me."
Track Name: Sidelines
from the sidelines, the sidelines i go.
watching you grow old. i can't let you know
watching so closely we miss all the signs
walking forever, the road how it winds

mine, you are mine
you are mine
you are mine
for the new year, the new year
i'm getting sober for the new year
you lie
for the new year, the new year
i'm getting sober for the new year
you lie

baby prisma, i watch you grow old
wall flower break free from all that you know
watching so closely we miss all the signs
take me for granted but just take your time

mine, you are mine
you are mine
you are mine
for the new year, the new year
i'm getting sober for the new year
you lie
for the new year, the new year
i'm getting sober for the new year
you lie

mine, you are mine
you are mine
you are mine
for the new year, the new year
i'm getting sober for the new year
you lie
for the new year, the new year
i'm getting sober for the new year
you lie

go to bed
go to bed
