Fugazi 04:26
When you turn me around Know it’ll be alright Looking inside You’ve got nothing to hide Face is a mess I’m wondering how What happens when we’re young Doesn’t seem to work out An idea, will leave me breathless An idea, you leave me breathless There is something I said That I regret But he thought that he showed me Fugazi I don’t know how to explain how that feels It doesn’t make sense why it hurt me An idea, will leave me breathless An idea, you leave me breathless

Stapling 02:41
You look like someone stood you down And I am close to the bottom Hanging out I’ve been wasted, stapling All of my time You’ve got one foot on the ground and one right One right, one right I have opened all of myself to you and you Keep a door locked on me I’ve been like, wasted, stapling all of my time To you and you seem like nothing, no support of mine No support of mine, no support You know it wasn’t easy before It’s taken its toll
3.
Get Better 04:11
You look like you’re tired I don’t know how I Got along before Somehow, I just keep going There’s always going to be Someone who’s better than me I know I’m trying to be Better I don’t know I’m going to wake up from this I don’t know to make you please wake up from this All of these times you tried To keep my path closed in on your pride And I just stayed there, bleeding right To be losing You take it all out and blame your pain on me Your shame, your denial, your ways to stay unseen I’m here pleading for you to love me too The way that you love The self that you’ve construed To seem happy and safe When I had to run from you And learn to rage I won’t keep going But please get better
4.
I’m reading about the way that things burn On paper and in text books I’m reading about The way things will burn In sometime or in no time I’m thinking how can I plan a life in turn When everything is hopeless? I’m thinking about the way that we learn When everything is hopeless All we’ve lost and keep reliving The land is meant to pray, Instead we stand to take And hold, when who is meant to be here? The cheatgrass choking in, Tried to be your sense of home And you threw me on the ground Let me lying in your waste, I’m lying in your waste
5.
Creature 03:38
Scent’s off and nobody’s home You’ve been watching me fall I stood there stayed there standard Stale window Your cruelness, your cruel creature I’ve got to know I’ve got something in I’ve got something in I’ve got it now You’re standing tall, though you’re upside down It’s a crisis I don’t know how to love anymore I don’t know what love is Everyone’s down Down Everyone’s down It’s not a moment, This will not end, it’s a revolution
6.
Done with walking days, I would rather on the couch watching TV Twenty in a row, drying out chillies I recall when you were a teenager I wanted to be just like you Play guitar and sing along and run the school Now you’re turning twenty-seven And I don’t know you anymore I’m at a loss at what happens in this world It is a cruel sensation, remembering I am human And I’m prone to accidents of heart I regret sending you that email where I said wanted to kill you When I meant is that long to feel you are still someone that I know well like I used to It is painful to age And I’m watching Leon tell me he is suffering too At your hands gladly slipping away He says he is at a loss, he never knew this cruelty existed And he lost his country, and he knows what it means to fear for your life And he’s never cruelty like this, he wonders is it pathological Have I asked a psychiatrist what might be wrong with you and I have and we don’t know Maybe it’s something to do with your personality And I think I’ve always known it Somewhere deep inside I knew There was no trusting you And Leon told me Niko threw you out of a pushchair Intentionally to display his manliness And you hit your head on the concrete and cried And Leon stood there amazed What to do? What, to take you away as a toddler? He said there’s no way to blame him, Niko’s also bruised, he didn’t know how to share my mother’s love for you So, we’re brought back to toxic masculinity And I don’t like to label everyone, but it seems that runs in my family With pride and rage and dignity I’m sorry I’m angry, too I told you I wanted to kill you But, I’m only afraid
