Track Name: Enough
You've really done enough
You've really done enough
So you really oughta leave me alone
Yeah you really oughta leave me alone
You swear it comes from love
You swear it comes from love
But you really oughta leave me alone
Yeah you really oughta leave me alone
I know you think you're tough
I know you think you're tough
But you really oughta leave me alone
Yeah you really oughta leave me alone

And I will make you pay
I will make you pay~
So you really oughta leave me alone
Yeah you really oughta leave me alone

I'll cut your dick right off
I'll cut your dick right off
So you really gotta leave me alone
Yeah you really gotta leave me alone
Yeah you know you gotta leave me alone
Yeah you better fucking leave me alone
Track Name: Hard To Wake Up
What do you do when the chain on your ankle
starts dragging you down
deeper and deeper
and the only person who
dove in to reach you
has weights tied to his wrists
And he holds you so sweetly
you can't bear to tell him
that you both are gonna die here
you both are gonna lie here
cause it's hard to wake up
it's hard to wake up

What do you do when you're the pea under the mattresses
and you feel so suffocated
and it's dark and unpleasant
and the only person who
would even notice you're missing
is sleeping on the box spring
softly breathing, deeply dreaming
You're feeling so lost, dear
You can't even scream here
that you both are gonna die here
yeah you both are gonna lie here
cause it's hard to wake up
it's hard to wake up

What do you do when you're lost in the dark city
and with every path you choose
the night grows deeper and deeper
and the only person who
is even trying to find you
has cracks in his glasses and an empty book of matches
You're not ready to love him
he's just an obstruction
and you both are gonna die here
you both are gonna lie here
cause it's hard to wake up
Track Name: Wish
I wish I was a listener
I wish that I could move like her
But I'm not and I can't
I wish I could play any chords
I wish I was a little less self-absorbed
But I can't and I'm not
And I'm scribbling on the back of receipts
Everything that I'd rather be
What I want but I'm not
You make me nervous
You make me shrink inside
My smile's tremulous
Forget what I said, I've said too much
Flushing and blushing with piteous anger
Like some kind of TV teenager
It's sad—it's not hot
I see with distinct clarity
Every inch that lacks in me
I've got that much self-awareness
I wish I could seem new to you
I wish I could breathe like the others do
But I can't—goddamn—I just can't
You make me nervous
I'll let my losses sing
To my disservice
I will say anything
Track Name: Worth
I don’t wanna sing the words
but just the melody
I don’t think I can get the feeling right
Being next to you was never easy
but your eyes, your eyes
I don’t think I was ready to have met you
I don’t think that I’ll be there for a while
but in the meantime I’ll try to catch up to your smile, your smile

And I’m not worth you

You say that there is no tree that falls silent
that everything that happens happens twice
I still can’t help but to divert my vision
from your light, your light

And I’m not worth you
And I am still not worth you
