Track Name: Marilla Park
Loosen the grip, whatever you start
Calm yourself, will dulls art
Chopped up words cross my heart
And patch me up when everything falls apart

Poor teenage girl with a wedding ring
Is putting away wedding things
You're never gonna be there to hear me sing
My mouth's sewn shut, can you still hear me laughing?

Sloughed off flakes of sunburnt skin
Little black holes where particles of dirt sneak in
Took a swim at Marilla Park
Jumped the fence after everything had gone dark
So settle down, be serene
It's not like it's a dying lover quarantine
Everything will pop off, everyone will produce
And i promise to tie you up whenever your laces start going loose
Track Name: Candy Season
Tell my friends that I've got a stomach ache
Candy season, hard times will follow me
I'm not even wholly satisfied
Candy season, does what it can to keep me in line

I don't want to leave here anyway

Tell my friends that I've got a stomach ache
Candy season, hard times will follow me
Tell myself that, there's nothin' up to me
Candy season, does what it can to keep me inside

Sayin' things I don't mean to say
Most of the time just tears my mouth up
Doing things that I'm not sure of
Made me cry till I lost my eyeballs

I'm scared of them

Preacher man gonna bless my soul
Track Name: Wait & See
All those sticky situations seem to stick to me
Seek out my skin, but I won't let them in
Things won't be so solemn if they're tailor made for us
Cut from my cloth, then I can't rip them off

Wait and see, have some patience with me please
I'm sorry if you grow a little tired

I miss the foods I've tasted once and loved but now they're all gone somehow
You can't steal my memories, apparently you never have your own
No, not mine. I own, own, own, own, own, own.
Track Name: Cranberry Palace
When my heart felt blue, I gave it to you

Now my body aches, my fingers they shake
My bones they break
For heaven's sake, I'm sorry things turned out this way
And I'll be so lonely without you, my heart is torn

Don't know what to do, I've only known you
And I'll be so lonely without you, my heart is torn
We could be so happy, I wish I wasn't so sure
Track Name: Hard to Unwind
My own pair of eyes
Let another slip by
They never believe what they see

Our good times became hard times
Now we find it's hard to unwind

She's leaving the room
She pours salt in my wound
Shake off that salt overseas

Our good times became hard times
Now we find it's hard to unwind
Our two lives grew too tight
Now we find they're hard to unwind
Track Name: Polar Opposite
Whenever you talk I bite my tongue
Whenever you sing I shut my ears to whatever you've sung
Whenever you laugh I don't laugh, when you cry I laugh
I get the happiest feeling whenever I see you so mad
'Cuz I'm your negative mirror, polar opposite present and passed
And it's kind of hard to realize that, 'cuz it never really seemed so bad
I really miss that

And if I got cross, you just crossed me off
Just a name on a list for you to toss
That pirouette in the car really broke my bones
But I guess it's hard to cast blame when you're the one who never called home

And I just wanna write a good song
I wanna be the drink in your shot glass
I wanna see how long we can make the sip last
Track Name: So What
So what
You fall in love with everyone, so what
What's the use
When your time don't cost anything, what's the use
Love ain't that loose

The simplest things bring a tear to your eye
It's easy to laugh, you at least gotta try

I wanna know that I can call your name to make everything cool
And that you're always there when I need someone to talk to
About whatever it is that's got me down
And if there's anything good out there waiting to be found

Like a universe without surprise
Where nobody lives and nobody dies

I wanna call your name to make everything cool
It's like you're always there when I need someone to talk to
About whatever it is that's got me down
And if there's anything good out there waiting to be found

Killin' my time with something else
That makes me feel unsure about myself
The people I love help me with that
Track Name: Kid Stuff
Loose curls on pretty girls, spinnin' shallow mysteries
Spend their time with the wrong guys who aren't the kind they claim to be

Who says I'm sighing? Whatever it is, it's not that sound
Lucifer's jumpin' up and down, watchin reruns of history

Whatever you do, keep your head up, don't fall down
Whatever you do, don't look foolish, stay healthy
Whatever you do, spell all the words right, look intelligent
Whatever you do, say all the right things

Gumshoe crush, silly joke, hunchback sittin' on chain swing
Got old, got tall, got shitty jobs, yeah, we ain't all we wished to be

I want you to take me home
