Track Name: Julia Sad
When you told me I nearly broke down and cried
Why didn't you?
Wish I could tell you you've no reason to hide
Why can't I?

It's like J said, I feel the pain of everyone
Wish I could feel nothing, wish that you could give me yours
But it goes on and on and on
On and on and on.
Track Name: Can't Stop
I can't stop eating myself.

With a mouthful of blood and a bellyful of skin.
Track Name: Obvious
Well you'd think it would be obvious
Well you'd think it would be clear enough
But they haven't a clue, no they haven't a clue
So I can't stand still, no I can't stand still.
Track Name: Whisper the Answers
Fucked if I know, he's looking at me.

Whisper the answers and I'll love you forever.
Track Name: Don't Care If You Do
I don't drink
I don't smoke
I don't eat meat
I don't get high

But I don't care if you do

I don't talk a lot
I don't listen to drum and bass
I don't go to church
I don't watch Breaking Bad

But I don't care if you do

Why do you get so defensive?
I'm not claiming to be right
It's not my fucking problem
How you choose to spend your life
I don't have an agenda
So stop acting like I do
I just do what feels good to me
So do what feels good to you

I don't sleep enough
I don't have casual sex
I don't don't love Team Dresch
I don't always tell the truth

But I don't care if you do.
