Track Name: Minibosses
Can't listen anymore, we've given up
Cannot listen anymore, we're getting nothing
Greased palms pull the strings
Put the mouth where the money talks
This ain't news to us

Can't listen anymore, we're giving up
Cannot listen anymore, we're getting nothing
Deep pockets split at the seams
Tell me what about the human cost?
This ain't news to us

Take your hand out of your wallet... whatever for?
Just long enough to point a finger at the poor
Shit's hollow when you cut out the core
Track Name: Shrinking Lines
SHRINKING LINES

Look around and feel it all inside out
Throwing shapes on shrinking lines
All on you, it's all on me, all over me

Look alive, NPCs cut out of the backdrop
Crowding in from shadowed sides
All on you, it's all on me, all over me

Taking up too much space
It suffocates
Quit invading mine

All on you, it's all on me, all over me

Look around, cut corners soft, don't blur my edges
Spreading out all vivid lines
All on you, it's all on me, all over me
Track Name: Own // Selves
Who's gonna save you from yesterday?
Who are you asking for?
Look around, find the you who's gonna wreck the place
Who are you asking for?

Who's gonna save you from yesterday?
Who are you asking for?
Don't listen, just tell me what you wanna say
Who are you asking for?

Who's gonna save you from yesterday?
Who are you asking for?
Look around, it's your own selves
Who are you asking for?
Track Name: Don't Go Out
I cross the street to get away from unwanted gazes
I dart discreetly down the sidewalk, increase my pace

Don't go out alone

I clench my keys up in my palm so I feel ready
I plug my ears with every step home through violent commentary

Don't go out alone

Just keep treating the symptoms
Let the sickness thrive

Don't go out alone

How many times will we be warned for walking alone?
Who breaks the spotlight that restricts our living lives?
Don't fucking tell me to smile

Don't go out alone
