Track Name: Freeway
love doesn't keep score, whoa-oh but she does
all your sins in bright red lights, flashing in the stadium


are you sorry yet? are you sorry now?


if your heart still hurts, write her a letter
tear it into pieces and take it to the freeway at dawn, at dawn yeah
then if your heart still hurts, tear up the pieces
and let 'em blow over the freeway to find her, to find her
let 'em blow, oh whoa whoa oh
let 'em blow, oh whoa whoa oh


love doesn't keep score, whoa-oh til it's done
then all that's left are points and points, all you can do is crawl


are you sorry yet? are you sorry now?


if your heart still hurts, write her a letter
tear it into pieces and take it to the freeway at dawn, at dawn yeah
then if your heart still hurts, tear up the pieces
and let 'em blow over the freeway to find her, to find her
let 'em blow, oh whoa whoa oh
let 'em blow, oh whoa whoa oh
Track Name: I Get Lost
In the morning when I arise
I got nothing good on my mind
I can't stand the sun
If I get up I wish I stayed in bed
Hug the pillow but I can't rest my head
Everything is wrong


I get lost
Shooby doo wop


I walk for miles when there's nowhere to go
I get so lonely I just can't stay home
I can't stand my thoughts
My thoughts are gray when the sky is blue
Gray in my bones straight through the goo
I can't think my way up


I get lost shooby doo wop


That's when I thank my lucky stars
That I love you and you love me
That's when I thank my lucky stars
Those stars
Track Name: Digital Girls
will you still want them, digital girls
when I'm with you, in your room?
I'm here I'm real as rain
will you still want them
digital digital digital


are you afraid of thunder?
are you afraid of cancer?
are you afraid when her lipstick stains and her hand's against the wall?
you have liked me in pictures and
you have held me at arms length and
I'm afraid of the space between my real face and the flash


will you still want them, digital girls
when I'm with you, in your room?
I'm here I'm real as rain
will you still want me
digital digital digital


girls girls girls
girls girls girls
girls as real as a thunderstorm or a cancer or a pearl
girls girls girls
girls girls girls
neon thighs diamond eyes and a knife under every skirt


will you still want them, digital girls
when I'm with you, in your room?
I'm here I'm real as rain
will you still want me
digital digital digital
Track Name: Pretty Enough
I wish I could puke up all of my tears, all of my blood
you'd never see me sweat, never see me cut, never see me break and fall
it's all gonna fall, it's all gonna fall, it's all gonna fall on me


everything is dry
everything is red
do I sing pretty
enough for you yet?


I wish I had iron under my skin and steel in my eyes
you'd never see me bend, never see me rest, never see me breaking down
it's all gonna fall, it's all gonna fall, it's all gonna fall on me


everything is gray
everything is black
do I sing pretty
enough for you yet?
Track Name: Run in Dreams
got a storm inside, blood smoke and wine
oh but when I am with you can't tell if we're getting high


and it feels like we don't even breathe
and it feels like the world ain't still crashing in on me
like we run in dreams
like we run in our dreams


here we carve our names in the wet cement
here our feet will fall and fall and fall and we'll never look back
it would be cool not to care, it's so cool not to care
I've never had that gift and it wouldn't be fair


and it feels like we don't even breathe
and it feels like the world ain't still crashing in on me
like we run in dreams
like we run in our dreams
Track Name: In the Garden
heard you waiting at the bus stop
for me to take my clothes off
undress me in the cross walk
smile smile baby please stop


I want more than this


sometimes sweetheart I forget what a kiss feels like or that a rose is red
in the garden
in the garden


when I walk alone at night
I hear you walking close behind
when I go on the computer
don't be a bitch, send me pix, don't tell my girl


I want better than this


sometimes sweetheart I forget what a kiss feels like or that a rose is red
in the garden
in the garden
