Hands in the pockets of yr jeans Hands in the pockets of yr jeans A nod at the door, guestlist and drinks galore Hands in the pockets of yr jeans Le bar est plein encore une fois Le bar est plein encore une fois Une bouteille dans la main, est-ce que c't'une Prime Mate? Le bar est plein encore une fois Too much power in the scene You've got too much power in the scene We all know your name and we whisper just the same You've got too much power in the scene Mon coeur qui se serre encore Mon coeur qui se serre encore Un autre nom sur la liste, aggresseur / apologiste Mon coeur qui se serre encore What does accountability mean? What does accountability mean? We wanna see justice, we wanna be trusted What does accountability mean? Too much power in the scene You've got too much power in the scene We all know your name and we whisper just the same You've got too much power in the scene Rien de nouveau dans cette histoire Rien de nouveau dans cette histoire Faut voir les possibilités, le pouvoir de changer Rien de nouveau dans cette histoire Kill kill yr idols indeed Kill kill yr idols indeed It's not just a song that we've been singing all along Kill kill yr idols indeed Tuez tuez vos idoles Tuez tuez vos idoles Ce n'est pas juste une chanson qu'on chantait tout au long Tuez tuez vos idoles

Cicadas 02:07
I hear the cicadas singing, so I know it’s finally summertime and I thought I had the winter blues but I was just upset at you so I stayed in bed and felt fucked in the head and wished I was dead and I sang my lonely lament Why why why do you lie? I hear the cicadas singing so I know it’s finally summertime and I tell myself that I’ll feel better, my moods will change just like the weather - well that’s not how it works and you’re such a jerk, guess it’s one of your quirks, I just wish it didn’t hurt Why why why do you lie? I hear the cicadas singing, so I know it’s finally summertime My horoscope said to forget and my therapist told me to get over it - she said I need a new routine I felt a shift in energy sang a duet with Tiffany my busy brain has let me be Why why why do you lie? A friend asked me, “What does trust look like? Who do you put your faith in?” and I thought long and hard but couldn’t answer the question. I believe in justice, beauty, and truth. I believe in love, but I don’t believe in you.

When I Die 01:35
When I die don’t tag me on Facebook When I die don’t tag me on Facebook When I die give my books to my sibling give my clothes to my friends and burn my journals When I die don’t tag me on Facebook When I die don’t tag me on Facebook Heaven, hell, outer space Inevitable ending Say it to my face Every season a revelation a test of strength or a mild flirtation When I die don’t tag me on Facebook When I die don’t tag me on Facebook Heaven, hell, let’s make a trade We’ll give you Morrissey if you give us Kurt Cobain When I die don’t tag me on Facebook When I die don’t tag me on Facebook When I die give my books to my sibling give my clothes to my friends and burn my journals When I die don’t tag me on Facebook When I die don’t tag me on Facebook When I die don’t tag me on Facebook When I die don’t tag me on Facebook When I die don’t tag me on Facebook

Le Lendemain 03:53
Je suis obligée de ne pas oublier de ne rien oublier jamais jamais de la paix le lendemain, le lendemain, le lendemain On a couru après l’autobus Il nous a pas vu.es Foutu.es complètement foutu.es C’est un déjà vu, c’est un déjà vu, c’est un déjà vu Je t’ai perdu.e, on s’est même pas connu.es on s’est pas entendu.es trop saoul.es jamais s’est revu.es Malentendus, malentendus, malentendus Vivre dans le palais de la vérité de la vulnérabilité Les clés Donne-moi les clés La sérénité, la sérénité, la sérénité Je suis obligée de ne pas oublier de ne rien oublier jamais jamais de la paix le lendemain, le lendemain, le lendemain

I was just being nice, I was just making conversation Women are taught to see one another as competition This institutionalized rivalry positions me as a threat How can I convince you that I’m not interested in your boyfriend? Leather jacket and perfect lipstick, your suit of armour Pigtails and running shoes, I’ve got my own on You won’t let me make eye contact, that’s up to you Internalized misogyny what’s a girl to do? It’s a cliché to say that I do not play these games but I do not play these games and I’ve gone to great lengths You’re young and you’re drunk and I know and I get it but I’m too old for this shit and I am still a feminist Leather jacket and perfect lipstick, your suit of armour Pigtails and running shoes, I’ve got my own on You won’t let me make eye contact, that’s up to you Internalized misogyny what’s a girl to do? I want you to like me, I didn’t mean any harm Anyway I’m not flirting it’s just my natural Libra charm Sarcastic tone but I’m desperately craving sincerity Honesty is a rarity, can’t we stand in solidarity? Leather jacket and perfect lipstick, your suit of armour Pigtails and running shoes, I’ve got my own on You won’t let me make eye contact, that’s up to you Internalized misogyny what’s a girl to do? Internalized misogyny what’s a girl to do? Internalized misogyny what’s a girl to do? Internalized misogyny what’s a girl to do?

Sugar Rush 01:54
No electricity is not considered an emergency when you’re not a part of a nuclear family No welfare if your partner shares a house key Three days, five days, finally turn into ten Cut off the hydro, up the credit card debt Dep snacks for breakfast, my life is such a mess Sugar rush sugar rush sugar rush sugar rush Why did I eat a whole box of Pop-Tarts?? Fuck me out of this irreality, get me out of my brain and back into my body, Rescue Remedy cannot rescue me I pull my hair you pull my hair, forcefully A hint of lavender, a hit of melatonin Make it a Zopiclone, a book to bury my nose in Playing the waiting game, serenaded by Roy Orbison Thinking, guessing, wondering how many hours lost to imaginary conversations?? If I’d known I wouldn’t sleep, I’d’ve gone out and been seen My eyes rest heavy, my body betrays me, stuck to my sheets wet and sweaty, tortured by anxiety dreams At what hour does the night owl meet the early bird? Digging for worms, put your hands in the dirt, put your hands up my skirt Spring is coming and so am I
