Track Name: Skin
Dull and wasted filament
I'm a glue trap that lost its stick
I feel alright when we kiss
The rest of life is sort of "hit or miss"

You like me now but its only December
You think you'll love me forever
I doubt you'll even remember today

I'll take you down we can burn in the embers
You think that we'll stay together
I bet you'll come to regret this one day

I bet you'll come to regret this one day

You like me now but its only December
You think you'll love me forever
I doubt you'll even remember today

I'll take you down we can burn in the embers
You think that we'll stay together
I bet you'll come to regret this one day

I bet you'll come to regret this one day

I won't dare try to hide it
Cover up or deny it
Good intentions give way to sin
But after all its only my skin

You like me now but its only December
You think you'll love me forever
I doubt you'll even remember today

I'll take you down we can burn in the embers
You think that we'll stay together
I bet you'll come to regret this one day

The bravest thing I ever did wasn't choosing to die, but choosing to live
And when the day comes that I jump off that ledge,
You can have every last fuck that I have to give

After all its only my skin

The bravest thing I ever did wasn't choosing to die, but choosing to live
And when the day comes that I jump off that ledge,
You can have every last fuck that I have to give

I won't dare try to hide it
Cover up or deny it

I'm a glue trap that lost its stick
Track Name: Better Broken
I could try and find a better man
Search the world for somebody better than you
I could also knock out my own front teeth,
Put a plastic bag over my head and go to sleep

Well the fact of the matter
Is that you do it better

Why would I try to fix it if it ain't broken
I won't deny some things are better when they're left broken

I could try and date a younger man
But he won't understand the things that you do
He can't appreciate my violent past,
Overlooks my will and grace
All he sees is tits and ass

"Oh my god" they say
"Oh but he is so much older"
Look, you need to get over it
Numeric age is my least concern;
As long as he makes me laugh and keeps me warm

If the concept just won't stick
Feel free to suck my dick

Why would I try to fix it if it ain't broken
I'd rather die than let go of the hand I'm holding

Oh you know it
Some things are better broken
Oh you know it
I know you like it broken
Track Name: Dark Parts
Fuck

I've been told I come on strong
That's why me and the world don't get along
Tell me now
Am I wrong?

I didn't think so

Most people are stupid
That's why I don't give a shit
Don't be scared
I know you came prepared

Why aren't you running from me?
Could this be you love me?
Don't break my heart
Could you love my darkest parts?

Like a black mold it is spreading
Tell me, are you ready?
Don't break my heart
Could you love my darkest parts?

They say I will only get so far
They think we still don't know who we are
I'm not the type to just give up
Going around with my middle finger up
And I don't need the luck

Why aren't you running from me?
Could this be you love me?
Don't break my heart
Could you love my darkest parts?

Like a black mold it is spreading
Tell me, are you ready?
Don't break my heart
Could you love my darkest parts?
Track Name: The Fifth Commandment
"We have to honor our parents."
"We need to respect them, thank them for everything they've done in our lives"

Respect ain't so easily earned,
Ain't so easily learned by a badly burned daughter
Who doesn't quite deem in imperative
To honor thy mother and father

When I was a babe I was heaven-bound
Washed by the Lord's holy water
"Amen" said the priest,
"Now you're one of the flock"
Well, I think we're just sheep for the slaughter

I don't need the Lord or Jesus to save me
God already failed me
So tell 'em thanks a lot for that shit that you gave me
I'm so glad you made me

"Some parents are difficult to honor"
"And the reason is, they've not been good parents"

Ladies and gentlemen gather 'round
I'm a freak show, a train wreck that's going down
And all of the hatred I carry
Brings me down

And for all the delicate fools who say that I'm crazy,
Can you really blame me?
After all, I survived the abuse dealt by people who named me
Of course I'm still angry

"Okay now we're gonna say the Lord's prayer"
"Our Father who art in heaven, hallow be thy name"
" And kingdom come thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven"
"Give us this day our daily bread"
"But deliver us from evil forever and ever, Amen"

"They've been domineering, they've been controlling, they've been abusive"
"But does that exempt a person from honoring them?"

"I love you, but I can't allow you to interfere in my life"
