Track Name: Yolked
Pulled the yolk right out of me
Only egg whites here to see
Pull the apple out of my eye
Lay me down so I can die

I'm dead inside
I'm dead inside
I never learned how
To be alive

That's why I cut you off in traffic
That's why I take up too much space
Because I never learned how
To put myself in someone else's place

That's why I treat you like an object
That's why I ridicule the poor
That's why I disrespect your feelings
That's why I want more and more and more and more

Because I'm dead inside
I'm dead inside
I never learned how
To be alive
Track Name: Christmas
My mom hates Christmas--
She says:
"I'm not getting you anything
You prioritize the other side
Of the family
They never liked me anyway
I'm always alone
On the holidays

"You're gone
Nicole is gone
You're gone
Nicole is gone
You're gone
And everyone's gone
On the holidays

"On the holidays
I'm always alone"
Track Name: Not 2 Follow U
The cards are on the table
The choice is not to follow you
Just to be alone with myself
Can I become somebody else?
Do I have to understand the things you do?
It maybe matters less once I follow through

And I walk
The light is falling off the day
The leaves are brown, the world is gray
We wanted more than we could ask for
We wanted more than we could take
Track Name: Cut Him Out
There's no space
Everything is sinking
My hands will crumble
Who wants to be the best?
Who values fact
Over feeling

Who thinks I'm in a passing phase
Who demands to be perfect
Who gives all praise
With critique
Who always is right

Who never says good job
Who is never satisfied

So I'll cut that person out
Burrowing deep
Dammed up, clogged and trapped
He's not me no more

"Don't change"
Track Name: Paid Sick Leave
pinned through to the floor
writhing in pain
no one can hurt me
like my body can

***
california paid sick leave
includes preventative days
so why do i feel so much shame?
so why do i feel so much shame?

for staying in bed
when i can tolerate the pain
when i can just
work right through the pain

but why do i think i deserve to?
you don't think anyone else does,
what's so special about you?

can i survive the way he died?
run out the clock on my own time

and i can't think of stress
as a health hazard
'cause i'm too busy
being stressed on being healthy

but why do i think i deserve to?
you don't think anyone else does,
what's so special about you?

it's a joke that men do
conquer inherently
now i'll try to conquer
my own body

the punchline is when
we succeed

and blame that shit on you

***
giving in, i'll give myself that gift
but what's a gift from me?
