Track Name: Half my Life
I know there's a path you follow
in the darkness of the room
and I will call you back tomorrow
'cause someone's missing from the tomb

Despite our indifference
we build lives with fragile gifts
and not everyone makes it down the hall

but please don't ever ask me where I go
no, I've lived there for half my life before.

You know there's a place I go to
when I feel like I can't speak
and it is ugly when I leave you
it's ugly when I live my body.

Despite my intelligence
I've built a life I cannot live
to be honest, I'm scared I won't make it very far.

but please don't ever ask me what I are
no I died there a long, long time before.
Track Name: Paranoid
You say you're not much like the other boys
when you smoke you get kinda paranoid
You know I'm not much like the other girls
in fact, most people don't even know

but I was drunk before my lips touched your wine
and I get kinda paranoid.

Thought I was not so much like the other kids (ha!)
thought I was way too goddamn intelligent.
thought I was not so much like I was before
except on nights like this.

but I was lost before my lips heard the wo-rrr-dddd
and I get kinda paranoid.

I know, I know it's where I go
I really think you'd rather just not know
and stay away from me.

I'm bad, I'm bad in the Year of Glad
the worst summer we'd ever had
but you ask me to eat.

You say you're not much like the other boys
when you smoke you get kinda paranoid
You know I'm not much like the other girls
in fact, most people don't even know
