written and recorded in august
released in november


my heart leapt into my mouth
but my jaw's locked tight so i can't let it out
i'm learning how to keep it all down.
i'm learning how to be good.

everyone needs to feed
so i eat poisonous boys and let them feed on me
is it a charity or a catastrophe?
i never meant to do no harm

but i'll cut off all of my hair
and i'll grow it all back like it was never there
i'll pull out my teeth,
cut my legs at my knees,
i'll be new by the time i'm there.

my heart bled out in my chest
and my lungs collapsed, suffocating the rest.
i'm learning how to hold my breath.
i'm learning how to be good.


released November 11, 2015
i'll trype these later i'm having truoble writing
