Track Name: Let me in
I don't know why
I can't let you in
And time stalked us
Patience growing thin
You are the chemical
I want under my skin
And I stuck you in my heart, waited
No reaction

You are the poison
The reason i'm who I am
I can't absorb you
This mirror won't let me in

I filled my mouth with whatever you put in my cup
And I started to drown but this daydream pulled me out
And I froze my finger in the shape of a trigger
But I can't muscle out 6 pounds of pressure

You are the poison
The reason i'm who I am
I can't absorb you
This mirror won't let me in

I can't wait for you,
I can't wait for you,
I can't wait for you,
I can't wait for you.

Track Name: Instead
What do you want from me?
Some kind of confession
There's nothing to be sorry about
Its normal to feel some doubts

What do want from us?
A wedding procession
We're figuring out who we are
We're hearts made up of scars

Empty your head
Fill it with
What's happening instead
Of drowning us both
In what you had hoped
This would be

What do want from this?
Complete fulfillment
I'm a heart and a pair of hands
With a weakness for you
What do you want me to say
Write it down for me
My tongue keeps falling over itself
Trying to please

Empty your head
Fill it with
What's happening instead
Of drowning us both
In what you had hoped
This would be

la la la la la la, la la la, la la
la la la la la la, la la la, la la

Empty your head
Fill it with
What's happening instead
Of drowning us both
In what you had hoped
This would be

Track Name: Circus Star
If its a rainbow doesn't mean that you're gonna save the world
If it is small round an purple don't just eat it and dissolve your will

I find myself angry for no reason
I live for you, you live for yourself
Oh Oh Ohhh Oh

If its alone, doesn't mean it's searching for something else
If it is moving fast, doesn't mean it's in a rush or running away

I find myself happy for no reason
I live for love, you live for the end
Oh Oh Ohhh Oh

Why do we continue as we are
Me your ballyhoo, you the circus star
If only cause we're waiting for something else
We'll i'm done waiting, i'm done waiting


If she says nothing, doesn't mean she has nothing to say
If she just nods her head, doesn't mean everything is ok

I find myself questioning everything
I live for nothing and you do the same
Oh Oh Ohhh Oh

Why do we continue as we are
Me your ballyhoo, you the circus star
If only cause we're waiting for something else
We'll i'm done waiting, i'm done waiting

Why do we continue as we are
Me your ballyhoo, you the circus star
If only cause we're waiting for something else
We'll i'm done waiting, i'm done waiting…for your love

Track Name: Escape
I saw you start to feed
Your mouth went long then deep
Your eyes held this stare
You went far away
Don't ever get in the way of a hunter and the prey
He's a killer till he's had his taste

And I saw its heart slow down
As it laid their on the ground
Moving closer and closer to paradise
And it gave up on the fight
Stared down the valley of light
And chose the other route
as the escape, as the escape,
as the escape, as the escape,
as the escape, as the escape,
as the escape, as the escape,
as the escape, as the escape,
as the escape



And you don't know when you're gonna have to leave
But you better be ready, you better be ready
its what you gave and what you did and how you lived
as an escape, as an escape,
as an escape, as an escape,
as an escape, as an escape,
as an escape, as an escape,
as an escape, as an escape,
as an escape

I saw its heart slow down
As it laid their on the ground
Moving closer and closer to paradise
And it gave up on the fight,
Stared down the valley of light
And chose the other route
as the escape, as the escape,
as the escape, as the escape,
as the escape, as the escape,
as the escape, as the escape,
as the escape, as the escape,
as the escape

And you know that its never going to end

Track Name: Lady Bug
A quiet child, it's like i'm the only one
Troubled and wild, with a razor for a tongue
What can you'd do when everything just sticks like super glue
Can't move to run

Focus quick to survive
watch your steps, watch the time
You know how to make things bleed

Invisible, I became like everyone
Perfectly still, till its safe to move around
Swallowed the past, so I'd never have to see it again
Stand near the back

Now don't test fate
Patiently wait
Till your close enough to leave
To escape to escape to escape

And then you'll lay in a cocoon
Sleep under the moon
The wind will whisper a tune
Tea with macaroons
You're siting by the pool
You see a red balloon
A lady bug in june
Sipping honey from a spoon

I ran outside while they'd sleep
I'm not going back
Now I'm free
You press reset
then you'll start to see
Life can just flip
Suddenly

So don't look back
live in the past,
eyes to the sky
live your life
and then you'll start to, breathe.

And then you'll lay in a cocoon
Sleep under the moon
The wind will whisper a tune
Tea with macaroons
You're siting by the pool
You see a red balloon
A lady bug in june
Sipping honey from a spoon

Cocoon, the moon, a tune, red balloons
Cocoon, the moon, a tune, red balloons
Cocoon, the moon, June, a spoon
Cocoon, the moon, June, a spoon

Track Name: Wait
You like it fake
You like it virtual
With all the flashing colors
The truth gets to be so beautiful
You like to take
Everything for yourself
If you could fill every shelf
You'd be so much closer to feeling safe

But don't stop now
We gotta wait
As it all falls down around us
Let's act as if it ain't

You make the world so dangerous with a stupid equation
Fighting for these finite places at the top has made you all insane
I see the drain
I see it being crystalized
You live on pain
It adds shine to your hollow lives

But don't stop now
We gotta wait
As it all falls down around us
Let's act as if it ain't

Now you live inside this tiny box, you call your life
And you wonder why you need so much space
To feel ok inside
Its hard to look around and not despise the suffering
It brings up all this guilt when all you want are the shiny things

And don't stop now
We gotta wait
As it all falls down around us
Let's act as if it ain't

And don't stop now
We gotta wait
As it all falls down around us
Let's act as if it ain't

Don't stop now (repeat)

Track Name: Parasol
Sunday afternoon preparing for my cannonball
From the highest diving stall when you caught my eye
Your tail swinging side to side like a fancy parasol
The most ancient mating call was like morphine straight in my eye

It came on strong like dime store man cologne
I needed a fix, till it made me sick
Well they said don't, but i just did
Sticks and stones, have to live with it
Every stab it felt just like a kiss
I puckered mine, you made a fist,
Then towed the line, and I felt a lift
I never thought i'd end up just like this

The sky began to bloom with a swarm of fireflies
I sniffed the fumes of paradise and then I lost my mind
A midnight stroll with you left me weak in the knees
I could barely breathe when your hand brushed by mine

It came on strong like dime store man cologne
I needed a fix, till it made me sick
Well they said don't, but i just did
Sticks and stones, have to live with it
Every stab it felt just like a kiss
I puckered mine, you made a fist,
Then towed the line, and I felt a lift
I never thought i'd end up just like this

And these wild times I thought they would carry me
I got strung out on all that ecstasy
I know that you barely noticed me
I was a peasant in the presence of your majesty

Now love feels ten feet tall and 3000 miles away
Got straddled by a fantasy till it kicked me in the mouth
Now I drink every bottle on the shelf
How quickly you can find yourself with your face stuck to the ground

It came on strong like dime store man cologne
I needed a fix, till it made me sick
Well they said don't, but i just did
Sticks and stones, have to live with it
Every stab it felt just like a kiss
I puckered mine, you made a fist,
Then towed the line, and I felt a lift
I never thought i'd end up just like this

Track Name: Orangutan
Is this life or is it a dream?
Whatever it is i'm not allowed to sleep
Distracted by the whir of that ticking machine
Body bruised from the twisting of sheets

Is this how I planned to live from the start?
Locked up in a cage where I would just play out my part

Oooo Oooo

He said take my hand lets go for a walk
To a strange fairy land where animals talk
We hung out by the sand and drank soda-pop
Listen to orangutans discuss post modern thought

Is this how I planned to live from the start?
Locked up in a cage where I would just play out my part

Oooo Oooo

I don't feel the growing pains anymore
Body slack with my back just holding up this wall

Is this how I planned to live from the start?
Locked up in a cage where I would just play out my part

Is this how I planned to live from the start?
Locked up in a cage where I would just play out my part

written by Cristina Orbé
Track Name: Winner
Hard times wore me down
Added ten years to my face
It's hard to swallow now
And get back in the race

They thought i'd be a winner
And make them proud
Escape this town
But life is one long winter
And i'm a cloud with a jesters crown

Sitting in an empty room
The cops will be here soon
And I could try and run away
But there's no real escape

They thought i'd be a winner
Make them proud
Escape this town
But life is one long winter
And i'm a cloud with a jesters crown

They they they they they they
Want me to talk it out
want me to walk it out
Get off stage

They they they they they they
Want me to talk it out
want me to walk it out
Get house trained

They they they they they they
Want me to talk it out
want me to walk it out
Be a slave

They they they they they they
Want me to walk it out
want me to talk it out

There's nothing to talk about (repeat)
