Track Name: Trouble
Contained inside your heart
And finding it hard to grasp
Solitude

And I don't want to start
To imagine us apart
Don't want to be rude

I would never let
You to keep me like a pet
But you do

Trouble isn’t hard it’s growth...
Trouble isn’t hard, it’s growth...
I give you my oath

It's nothing worth a fret
And this isn't a threat
I love you

Under your protection
I am swarmed with affection
Red and blue

There isn’t a trait
That I would ever hate
Something’s there

I feel I suffocate
Anxious and super late
But you care!

Trouble isn’t hard it’s growth...
Trouble isn’t hard, it’s growth...
I give you my oath

I wanna build myself up
I have it kind rough
Saying no

You drink me from a cup
I go down kinda rough
Icy snow

Trouble isn’t hard it’s growth...
Trouble isn’t hard, it’s growth...
I give you my oath
Track Name: Leerers
Just because I look funny
Just because I have a body
Just because I have hair
Does not mean you can stare

There's a force that surrounds me
That you think you want desperately
Your perverted sinister glare
To which I've become aware

I'm not here
For you to leer
I'm not here
For you to leer

Your gaze is cold and shadowy
Is wrong and horrid not flattering
My lightness, glittery and fair
Is threatened by you to which you don't care

I won't stand here and be objectified
Part of my naivety had died
You don't know what this feels like
Don't touch me, don't kiss me

I'm not here
For you to leer
I'm not here
For you to leer (cont)
Track Name: Green Potato
Was it a politician?
That gave me the gave,
gave me the itch

Was it a UFO?
That gave me the gave,
gave me the itch

Was it a green potato?
That gave me the gave,
gave me the itch

Was it a so-and-so?
That gave me the gave,
gave me the itch

Gave me the itch!
(Scratchy scratchy scratchy scratchy scratchy, OH!)
Gave me the itch!
(Scratchy scratchy scratchy scratchy scratchy, OH!)
Gave me the itch!
(Scratchy scratchy scratchy scratchy scratchy, OH!)
Gave me the itch!
(Scratchy scratchy scratchy scratchy scratchy, OH!)

Was it a news headline?
That gave me the gave,
gave me the itch

Was it a transport fine?
That gave me the gave,
gave me the itch

Was it an unfair crime?
That gave me the gave,
gave me the itch

Or was it me this time?
That gave me the gave,
gave me the itch

Gave me the itch!
(Scratchy scratchy scratchy scratchy scratchy, OH!)
Gave me the itch!
(Scratchy scratchy scratchy scratchy scratchy, OH!)
Gave me the itch!
(Scratchy scratchy scratchy scratchy scratchy, OH!)
Gave me the itch!
(Scratchy scratchy scratchy scratchy scratchy, OH!)
Track Name: Green Looks Good (On Me)
Shadowing is fun for me
As I sit by your cherry tree
I’m supported by your talent
I unfortunately repent
Calling on the angels high
To sing your lucky lullaby

Green looks good on me
Green looks good on me
Green looks good on me
Green looks good on me

Fill the air with high regard
Might need a security guard
Be a shame if you would fall
We’d never hear from you at all

Tumbling from your pedestal
Whoever wishes it so cruel
Maybe then, they would fine
I’m the best, leave you behind...

Green looks good on me
Green looks good on me
Green looks good on me
Green looks good on me
Track Name: Repetition
Wetting the iceberg
Rounding up the herd
West flies the birds
Garbage to the curb

Start to finish
Serving the same dish
Circle-swimming fish
Routine is rubbish

Repetition, you’re making me reel
Without answering the question
You enter a spiel
And having the gal, to lie to us all
You’re a marionette
A thousand feet tall

Sharpening the pencil
Composting fruit peel
Skinning road kill
Run of the mill

Terminating your contract
Hitting the sack
When light falls to black
Progress falls back

Repetition, you’re making me reel
Without answering the question
You enter a spiel
And having the gal, to lie to us all
You’re a marionette
A thousand feet tall
Track Name: Sever
When you have nine lives
And most of them we share
And leading my own
You hiss, scratch and glare

When you have eight legs
And you hold me down
I’m stuck in your web
No room to move around

When you have seven sins
Wrath and envy transpire
I singe and burn
In your ire hell fire

Sever! Sever! Sever! Oooh-ohh!
Sever! Sever! Sever! Oooh-ohh!

When you have six-six-six
On your shoulder
Your fury grows hot
Our love turns colder

When you have five senses
Focused on my faults
Crumbling, I manage your
Sensory assault

When you have four limbs
Hurling the blame
Pinned against the court
Fouls called in the game

Sever! Sever! Sever! Oooh-ohh!
Sever! Sever! Sever! Oooh-ohh!

When you have three tenses
And we share the past
The future to be sweeter if
In the present we part

When you have two conceptions
Of fair and felonious
Your ghastly perceptions
Could be spared, and harmonious

But when you point one finger
Three fingers point back
Inside your mind, inside your trap

These three fingers I wanted to sever
Coz rather than count back those moments together
Where I felt I could shut away and whatever
But now it sounds to me that you hate me forever,
And it always hurts and it’s not very clever how it turned out and now I’ll see you never...
Track Name: Digestion
Failure is a balance, of victory and chance,
if you have some remanence, to suffer for romance
Purge the urge to wallow, take your pride and swallow
When you're feeling hollow, go deeper than the shallows

Villainess internal sabotage, fills my eyes with rage
It took panic and sickness, to cleanse trauma with sage
I took a chance, and I was brave

I drank till I was bloated, self-care was demoted
Listless and emoted, with trauma left un-noted,
Skilfully able to repress, the horror I had to address
The power I possess, to finally find my happiness

Villainess internal sabotage, fills my eyes with rage
It took panic and sickness, to cleanse trauma with sage
I took a chance, and I was brave

There was so much to digest, I finally made some progress,
I find sometimes I get depressed, to the path to success
Track Name: Shrimping
Aah - ooh - uhh - eurgh
