Everybody’s Growing Up Descending down through the streets the sky pale and forgotten, horses falling over, the morning sun is fading. Everybody’s growing up. Everybody’s growing old. Everybody’s growing up. Everybody’s growing cold. Everybody’s being told. Everybody’s drooling out the side of their mouth. How long can a heart last when everything arounds decaying? I smiled and loved as a child but now my love is aging. Everybody’s growing up. Everybody’s getting angry. Everybody’s trying not to go crazy. Everybody’s getting mad. Everybody’s getting fat and lazy. Everybody’s in fear, settling for a pointless, mediocre life. We are born into a world where everyone is crazy. I offer my love to you with the hopes that it will save me. Everybody’s getting stuck. Everybody’s blaming love. Everybody’s making up diseases. Everybody kind of sucks. Everybody burns the clutch. Everybody’s forgotten they are creating their own reality. Eventually you gotta open up your heart, you gotta open up your heart, you gotta open up your heart or you’ll go crazy Eventually you gotta open up your heart, you gotta open up your heart, you gotta open up your heart, you gotta let it all hang out.

Your Negative That’s why your girlfriend left you. That’s why you hate your boss. That’s why people forget you. That’s why you feel so lost. That’s why your daddy’s a bastard. That’s why you're feeling so sick. That’s why the tears ain’t from laughter. That’s why you wanna quit. That’s why your negative, that’s why you're negative, all because you're negative. That’s why the sidewalk trips ya. That’s why your soda’s flat. That’s why the officer kicked ya. That’s why he ain’t coming back. That’s why you don’t believe in angels. That’s why your car won’t start. That’s why you're afraid of strangers. That’s why you don’t create art. That’s why your negative, that’s why you're negative, all because your negative.

Dance For Days I was thinking of the night I tried to die when I took a look inside. All the ugliness and shame came to the light so I cut myself with a knife. All the emptiness and dark ran on for days, down I dug my grave. And my parents didn’t know just what to say so they gave me medication I’m thinking of the night I felt the change the night that I was saved. I opened up my eyes on Christmas day and God did it feel great. I opened my mouth and tried to sing and knew just what to say. I picked up my guitar and tried to play and now I dance for days

You are made of earth. I am made of water. You are God’s son. I am God’s daughter. You and I were born to be here for each other. You are a man but first you are my brother. How could you ever rape me? How could you ever hate me? How could you ever take me away from God? Father, son, and ghost but where is the Goddess? I love you the most, let’s be honest. How could you ever rape me? How could you ever hate me? How could you ever take me away from God? God has been a woman forever. Adam and Eve ate the apple together.

My heart is too big to pretend to be cool. I’m way too smart to finish school. I wish I had a cooler dad, a big strong man who could understand emotion. Emotion! Mama tells me to live like Christ but I can’t lead a perfect life. I wish my mum wasn’t so dumb, a kind lady who gets my crazy emotions. Crazy Emotions! Dreams that die out all the time, I know their out to destroy mine. I wish, wish people weren’t so evil, more sincere, no fear of emotions. I wanna trust what I got inside, let my feelings be my guide. I wish I believed in my ability to be brave and ride the wave of emotions.

Chemotherapy 03:34
The spirit demands a way out of this place when my shaking hands can’t get a grip, losing weight on a sinking ship with no land in sight. Leaning hard against your scars, baby leave the future behind, it’s poisoning reality, baby, please don’t die. I need you now not wrapped inside this hospital comes alive to drown its teeth in your failing heart. Your mother can’t stand. Your father can’t speak as his aging hands move the fickle strands of your hair from abandoned lands in your eyes. His memories say swim to me back then he could save your life. The cold machines that let you breathe won’t let help you say goodbye. The room is dark. The wind is high on your drying blood but the quiet is nice. Go to sleep now. Find a dream. Wait for me.
