You speak the words but they catch on your tongue And I thought this tangle was supposed to be fun Now I’m knotted up with the words you didn’t mean Loosened your lid so you could blow off some steam If I’m assisted Thrills why do you think of me still If I’m assisted Thrills does my voice give you the chills You throw away baby have you thought of me lately You throw away baby now it feels like you hate me Felt like I was on fire when you told me what you wanted To feel something so strongly it was easy to be daunted Guess I was a conquest you could leave on ice Invested all myself and it is me whose paid the price If I’m assisted thrills why do you think of me still If I’m assisted Thrills does my voice give you the chills You throw away baby have you thought of me lately You throw away baby now it feels like you hate me Feels like you hate me Feels like you hate me

Accolade 02:42
Been coming in silver and you made me feel like gold Waking up thinking of you made me feel sixteen years old My eyes are tinted with rose Worship me from my head to my toes Been coming in silver and you put me on display Polish me with your honesty, make me the highlight of your day My eyes are tinted with rose I think I know how this one goes Trophy cabinet Let me be your accolade Never leave me to rust in the shade Trophy cabinet Adorn me with ribbons And I’ll never overlook the love that you’ve given me

Pastel shades in the early heat of may But all I see is grey Monochrome scenes feels like it’s all through a screen But who am I to say what’s real Is something wrong with me Rings like a silent scream My sadness is compiling It’s summer and I don’t feel like smiling The long days shouldn’t feel this bleak But it feels like I’m on a losing streak The smell of sunscreen and salty air I feel nothing and I don’t care Is something wrong with me Rings like a silent scream My sadness is compiling It’s summer and I don’t feel like smiling Air con and black out blinds I never meant to be unkind The long days shouldn’t feel this bleak But it feels like I’m in a losing streak

I think I love being alone I think that comes with being grown I’m not rushing back again Not falling in again Don’t have to glue myself to me phone Only worry about my own I’m not rushing back again Not falling in again Look at everything I’ve done for myself Taking care of my mental health Ticking off lifetime goals Don’t need someone else to feel whole I can’t be yours cause I love being alone I get frustrated with your tone I feel tired in my bones Can’t feel like this again Not wishing for you again I can’t listen to you moan About the chances you have blown Can’t feel like this again Not wishing for you again Look at everything I’ve done for myself Taking care of my mental health Ticking off lifetime goals Don’t need someone else to feel whole And look at this life I’m living Everything good was not your giving Nothing I have I stole Don’t need someone else to feel whole I can be yours cause I love being alone Alone but not lonely Alone but not lonely Alone but not lonely Alone but not lonely

Poltergeists 04:46
I’ll shove my head into a speaker Like Sylvia Plath but monumentally weaker Wish I could sleep Wish I could do anything apart from creep around this house There’s nothing I can do about it We haunt the rooms we live in If you can call this living Poltergeists of past lives Flash before our eyes Faster than bolts of lightning Can’t stand the heat at night Feels like my brain just runs on spite these days Can’t even dream What’s there to look ahead to with a future cloaked in cloud Guess I’ll drown in my doubts now We haunt the rooms we live in If you can call this living Poltergeists of past lives Flash before our eyes Faster than bolts of lightning Dig my nails out of my palms An orchestra of grinding teeth will sound the alarms Dig my nails out of my oaks An orchestra of grinding teeth will sound the alarms We haunt the rooms we live in If you can call this living Poltergeists of past lives Flash before our eyes Faster than bolts of lightning Flash before our eyes Faster than bolts of Dig my nails out of my palms An orchestra of grinding teeth will sound the alarms Dig my nails out of my palms An orchestra of grinding teeth will sound the alarms
