Track Name: Didn't Earn Shit
always the first in line
always the first to whine
born into this life
silver spoon
private school
tennis at the country club

you think you’ve earned all this?
you’re fucking full of it
you think you’ve earned all this?
think again

never done without
never had a doubt
on the golden path
trophy wife, italian car
partner at your daddy’s firm

you think you’ve earned all this?
you’re fucking full of it
you think you’ve earned all this?
think again

you think you’ve earned all this?
you think you’ve earned all this?
you think you’ve earned all this?
think again
Track Name: Laundry Line
we fake it
acting like we should
building to the walls that have always stood
she’s gone
now all that weight comes down
it’s burning to the ground

you don’t even try
hang me on the laundry line
it’s no wonder why
you can’t do this anymore

i’ve hated
it’s one of my mistakes
it’s hard it seems all loss, all give no take
i’ve waited for love that never came
i understand I share the blame

you don’t even try
hang me on the laundry line
it’s no wonder why
you can’t do this anymore

playing favorites
i’m forgotten
“chin up don’t get down”
left in silence
feigning smiles
will you come around?

you don’t even try
hang me on the laundry line
it’s no wonder why
you can’t do this anymore

you don’t even try
hang me on the laundry line
it’s no wonder why
you can’t do this anymore
you can’t do this anymore
i can’t do this anymore
Track Name: Latest and Greatest
rolling over, new found optimism
life is burning fast
growing old with every bad decision
why does nothing last
piece together plans to make it happen
forget the ones you've left behind
so familiar, process unrelenting
living in denial

it's not a matter of being happy
we just want something new
throw away the things we've cared for
replacements overdue
disregard the implications
find a new situation
the latest and greatest for you, for you

it's never your fault
it's your life to live
no one understands
give so much of yourself
leave with an empty hand
one door closes
force another open
never compromise
just right in head first, grin
and don't forget to close your eyes

it's not a matter of being happy
we just want something new
throw away the things we cared for
replacements overdue
disregard the implications
find a new situation
the latest and greatest for you, for you

it's not a matter of being happy
we just want something new
throw away the things we cared for
replacements overdue
disregard the implications
find a new situation
the latest and greatest for you, for you
Track Name: For Sale

everything’s for sale
everything’s for sale
everything’s for sale

everything’s for sale
everything’s for sale
everything’s for sale
Track Name: My Own
when i was a young girl
my father once told me
go out into the world
and get what you want girl
you don't need no loving man to comfort and hold you
you don't need no loving man to make you and mold you

but daddy never said
he didn't believe in love
well he'd known too many women
who never had their own
always needing a loving man to comfort and hold them
always needing a loving man to make them and mold them

now i got me a loving man
satisfies my needs
and i got my own
it's just for loving me
stand on my own ground
got my own hopes and dreams
and nothing or no one can take that from me
Track Name: Let's Drown
young mother lying in her bed
in the early hours of the morning
deafening voices in her head
she can’t turn them off
she gives in
walks down the hall to her daughter’s room
finds her sleeping still
innocence envied
she kneels beside her bed
wakes her gently
say don’t, don’t be afraid

follow me into the dark, into the water
follow me, i can show you the way out
follow me into the dark, into the water
follow me, let’s drown

days went by and no one saw them
curious neighbors whispered behind closed odors
puzzled police called it an accident
when their bodies finally washed up on the shore
no one saw the darkness that was growing there
too preoccupied to hear cries full of pain
believed she had save herself and daughter
finding solace in a watery grave

follow me into the dark, into the water
follow me, i can show you the way out
follow me into the dark, into the water
follow me, let’s drown
