Track Name: Mama
you don't, don't, don't
don't have to count my sheep
I can open and close my eyes fine by me

you don't, don't, don't,
don't have to cook for me
I can feed myself fine, can't you see?

my mama, she told me
you take care of yourself
she told me
take care of yourself
and nobody else

but I guess you can
count, count, count
count back my sheep and me to sleep
I could use a warm body
and a nice brush of your cheek

my heart it, it told me
you take care of yourself
it told me, I love you
and nobody else

and now I'm telling you
stop, stop, stop
don't count my fucking sheep
I've been awake for days
why the hell can't I sleep

my mama, she told me
you take care of yourself
she told me,
take care of yourself
don't let nobody else

so now I'm back to
count count,
I'm counting my own damn sheep
every morning I wake,
the bright sun I see

I've been taking good care of myself
I don't need nobody
just me and myself
Track Name: True Hue
i'm not getting high enough
you're not getting high anymore
sucking on ice cubes, dried up on the floor
the fog i see's not from the morning before

its cigarettes and cup after cup of hot coffee
making the same mistakes and not knowing
trying to be yourself and not showing
true colors are blinding

if i couldn't stray far enough
too far from each of my homes
if i carried the weight in my back pocket,
time would turn that to dust

please don't tell me this has all been for lust
please don't tell me this has all been for lust

cause its just..
its cigarettes and cup after cup of hot coffee
making the same mistakes and not knowing
trying to be myself and not showing
true colors are blinding
Track Name: Gravity
gravity
gravity
mmm,mmm

gravity, the weight of you and me
is bringing me down

he was hoping for the better
she was hoping for the worst
it ain't always sunny weather
fact, I hope the storm comes first

the gravity
the weight of you and me is bringing me down

trouble grows where trouble knows
I can't guarantee that I will be the one that I'm supposed to be
can't guarantee that I'll speak the words that I want to speak

can I follow you down
ankles holding hands
and still be me?

gravity
the weight of you and me is bringing me down
it's bringing me down

so shed the extra skin
cut the many strings
I've got to pick up speed,
if I'm gonna get out of this dream

buried on a subway in a city street
it's hard to see where you are
but on a mountaintop,
what you can see is all too far

we're all made of the same atoms
I breathe the bones of every passing soul
aching irie desparate madness
in the pit of my stomach
growing cold

it feels good to me
said it feels good to me
feels good to me
feels good to me

the waves will never stop crashing
the tides will never be still
the treasure of a beating heart
will forever be gold

these forces of attraction,
I've had my fill
of this gravity
the weight of you and me
is bringing me down
is bringing me down

the gravity, the weight of you and me
is bringing me down
feels good to me, feels good to me

the gravity, the weight of it all
is bringing me down

.....

it feels so good to me
your gravity
and the feeling on the ground

empathy is addictive to me
I drink too much in, the bottle full
and then I can't see

feeling all the feels in everybody I see
the weight on your shoulders is too much to bear, you see
too much to bear, you see
too much to bear, you see
too much to bear, you see
too much to
the gravity is too much to bear on me
I'm such a small girl can't you see

world, why do you do this to me?
I'm just trying to live the life I want to lead
please don't take that privilege away from me
my soul's already tattered and teathered and weak in the knees
