Track Name: Ugly
I think I'm really ugly
You think you're ugly too
But I'm pretty sure that I'm a whole lot
Uglier than you
I get so sad about it
And nothing makes it right
And when I lie awake that's all I
Think about all night
And boys only do me 'cause I'm easy
And girls only do me 'cause they think they're ugly too
And no one can ever understand me
But you do understand because you think you're ugly too

I think I'm really ugly

I think I'm really ugly
No matter what I do
The clothes I think are pretty look much
Prettier on you
There's no point wearing makeup
I just look like a clown
There's just no point in smiling 'cause it's
Worse than when I frown
And girls can't decide if I'm a "real girl"
And boys only like me 'cause I'm basically a dude
And no one can ever understand me
But you do understand because you think you're ugly too

I think I'm really ugly
Track Name: Home
You like me
But I love you
And you'll never love me
The way I do you
Please don't kiss
And please don't touch
You're screwing my heart
And it hurts me so much

Hey! I feel so ashamed
Just leave me alone
I should've known
You don't know what to do
Just leave me alone
I'm going home, home, home
I'm going home

When I cry
You hug me tight
But that doesn't help
'Cause it doesn't feel right
So I cry
And you cry too
But I cry the most
'Cause I thought I knew you

Hey! I feel so ashamed
Just leave me alone
I should've known
You don't know what to do
Just leave me alone
I'm going home, home, home
I'm going home
Track Name: Your Friends
All your friends are beautiful
But I don't think they have souls
All your friends are beautiful
But I don't think they have souls
Why must I be pitiful
Full of hate and full of holes
All your friends are beautiful
But I don't think they have souls

See? They won't talk to me
Their eyes are all the same
Why do I feel like a dog with your friends?

All your friends are beautiful
But I don't think they have souls
Sweet and kind and lovable
But I don't think they have souls
Track Name: Tiny Ache
That tiny ache
Blooms, swells, slows, fades
My hands curl into balls
Unfurl again and fall

Let me fall
Let me fall
I won't bother you
Your heart hurts too

Touch hands to face
Bloom, swell, slow, fade
I'll believe what you want me to
I do, I do, I do

Let me fall
Let me fall
I won't bother you
Your heart hurts too
Track Name: Nothing
Give away
All my furniture and
Give away
All my ratty shirts and
Throw away
My plates in shattered pieces
Throw away
Whatever garbage she says

Take from me
I have nothing

Make me beg
Make me beg for mercy
Make me cry
Make me get down on my knees
Make me say
Make me say I'm sorry
Make me lie
Make me say you're all I need

Take from me
I have nothing
Track Name: (Feelings)
It isn't me and it
Isn't you either
It could be both of us
But it's neither
Just sticks to everything and
Floats in the air
I'd tell you what I feel but you
Already know it's there
It's there
Track Name: Crush
You haven't been sleeping
I can tell
You're keeping a secret
And it feels like hell
I know what you're doing
I do it too
You're dreaming of her
And all the things you'll never do

Like holding her shoulders
And kissing her nose
Like holding her in your arms
And under her clothes
Like feeling her body
Right up against yours
But it's all a lie
She'll never be yours
Yours
Track Name: Dumb
Ask me what I know
I don't know
If you know me
You know, you know, you know
Ask me what I know
I don't know
If you know me
You know, you know, you know

Not about science
Not about math
Not about language
I'll pass
Not about book things
I know enough
Ask me what I know
About love

And I'll tell you that I'm dumb
I'm dumb
I'm dumb, dumb, dumb

Ask me what I know
I don't know
If you know me
You know, you know, you know
Ask me what I know
I don't know
If you know me
You know, you know, you know

Not about neurons
Not about time
Not about history
I'm fine
Not about book things
I know enough
Ask me what I know
About love

And I'll tell you that I'm dumb
I'm dumb
I'm dumb, dumb, dumb
Track Name: Rule
I'm testing you
To find out why you do
The things that you do
The ones I don't understand
It's hard being around you
Watching you think
What do you think about?
What do you think about?
When I
Start to believe
That I understand
Why you behave
In ways that punish me
And punish me beautifully
Have I uncovered
The rule of the law of the way that you are

The rule of the law
The rule of the law
The rule of the law
Of the way that you are
Track Name: (Lie Down)
Lie down
Don't talk anymore
Lie down
Down down
