Track Name: Triple Word Score
I know what you're thinking,
How much you've been drinking,
Lay me down what did you expect,
You pray for rain and cry when you get wet

Did it ever cross your mind, that maybe I was right?
Swallow your pride, I've swallowed yours and mine

You don't appreciate my tone,
It's nobody's fault but your own,
Houdini tricks are fine by me,
You're more appealing under lock and key

Did it ever cross your mind, that maybe I was right?
Swallow your pride, I've swallowed yours and mine

You feel like you're so debonair,
So why don't you ever play fair?
Put away your dictionary,
Your triple word scores count for shit with me.
Track Name: Sylvia
You know your touch is cold,
It's silver and it's gold,
Your skin is soft ribbons of earth

On my way to a church,
You stopped and drugged me up and,
Wondered why I felt so dirty,
How could you sleep next to me?

Sing to me, Sylvia,
You're like me, Sylvia

Their electricity,
Runs underneath your skin,
Into your bones sets your nerves on fire

You're not that golden child,
You fell and cracked your smile,
When Daddy died you went to school next morning,
Why didn't you mourn him?

Sing to me, Sylvia,
You're like me, Sylvia,
Words are free, Sylvia,
Just like me, Sylvia

They left you there in the cold,
Shaved your head growing old,
You're my world Sylvia
Track Name: Teething Problems
I can't count the times I've poured your,
Red wine down the sink sometimes I,
Think you'll change but you don't seem to care

Give it to me, This isn't what you need,
Your speech is slurred, You drink on undeterred,
Can't you see you're making yourself sick?
I can't wait for what I've said to stick,
You keep having all these vivid dreams,
Please be gentle I bruise easily

That cigarette is such a cliché,
Born again why don't you act that way,
You stumble makes me feel these,
Bad feelings stem from teething problems

Give it to me, This isn't what you need,
Your speech is slurred, You drink on undeterred,
Can't you see you're making yourself sick?
I can't wait for what I've said to stick,
You keep having all these vivid dreams,
Please be gentle I bruise easily
Track Name: 72 Hours
It's always 72 hours 'til I,
Find I'm, at your, bedside

I'm in my head no over here aren't I?
Find my, darkside

You are the one exception that proves the rule,
I wanted, to claw back, nail and tooth

I spent 9 months wasting my life in a red,
Smoky room

All you wanted was to help me through this,
Now I, don't know what to do with myself,
When I think about those sons and daughters I just,
Wanna get right back on the shelf

You are my appetite, You are my day and night,
You leave me dumb despite. Giving me the green light

Another year and all I've got to show is,
Bad moods, and exit wounds

I've lost my faith I've lost my voice and now I'm,
Losing, interest, in you

I find the third day is always the hardest, and I,
Don't have anything left to prove,
In the end I was so sick and tired, of just,
Waiting for the earth to move

You are my appetite, You are my day and night,
You leave me dumb despite, Giving me the green light
Track Name: The Sight of Me
Overbearing skies and underwhelming trees,
I know you can't stand the sight of me

Leave the floodgates open, Step into the boat,
I hope that you will learn to float

Keep an open mind I'm, Talking to myself,
I wish that you would let me help

Look into the evening, I can see you now,
But I can't come into your house
