Just because I never do it Oh, I wanna take it slow Though I don’t know how to do it Oh, I wanna take it slow Maybe it’s too late To calm my fantastical magical unicorn heart Maybe it’s too late To calm my fantastical magical unicorn heart Maybe it’s too late I don’t wanna be another Emily to you I know that what is fast is cheap these days I don’t want that No, I don’t wanna be another muse for some songs I just wanna be your friend I wanna be down to Earth Keep both my feet on the ground, ‘cause flying without a helmet Always ends up bloody And I don’t have health insurance I wanna take it slow Just ‘cause I never do it Just because I never do it I wanna take it slow Slow Don’t worry if it feels like I’m a little Hot And then cold It’s just me battling my ego just Afraid of who I am and who you might be And who you might think that I am

Hello, old friend I’d like to say I’ve missed ya But I haven’t You’ve been permeating every cell of my being Since I last kissed ya Things might be different If I could find a metaphor for Our tragic love But like a highly anticipated pregnancy Dead on arrival It was no coincidence Universe, you sick bastard I see what you’re doin’ The moment I looked out the window There you go With her On your arm And somethin’ kinda died Somethin’ kinda died for me To live I gotta die If I wanna live Gotta give it up To be free now I wanna be happy, happy, happy for ya But my jealous won’t quit, you know I still adore ya And though I’d like to think that she’d be good for ya I can’t help but feel that I know better than ya I wanna be happy Wanna be happy I want you to be happy Want her to be happy And I don’t want no sympathy I just want you to be mine And I don’t want no sympathy I just want you to be mine Mine Mine Mine Mine I wanna be happy

It must be nice to be a guy All of your anger justified Get to do whatever you want Nobody callin' you a It must be nice to be a man Walk through the world carefree, you can Walk down the street, wear what you want Nobody grabbin' at your It must be nice It must be nice You're such a feminist, you teach it at the college And how dare I not trust you when you make sexual advances Even though you have a girlfriend And last week it was flirting But today you were just joking And now you're mad at me 'cause I don't trust you And you really think I need to trust you Cause you're a feminist You're such a feminist Go ahead, tell me one more time to dim my light So your balls can feel bigger 'Cause I've got an M-16 I've got an M-16 in my house I've got an M-16 and I know how to use it Because I YouTubed it No man had to teach me how to do it Though many offered and then just tried to have sex with me Forreal That's what happens every fucking time I need help on a home project Every fucking time I need help on a home project You're such a feminist that you'd break your vow of celibacy Because the gods told you to penetrate me It's not sex, it's just Tantric healing My womb chakra needs some clearing Of all the traumatic wounding from other non-feminists But you, you're a feminist You're such a feminist Go ahead, tell me one more time to dim my light So your balls can feel bigger 'Cause I've got an M-16 I've got an M-16 in my house I've got an M-16 and I know how to use it And usually I am very peace, love and forgiveness But sometimes I just get so sick of your ignorance But I will not give into violence, so Let's get the M-16 Let's get the M-16 from my house Let's get the M-16 and we'll make it a planter Maybe plant some hops in it We can make beer Goddess knows I could use a beer Patriarchy benefits no one Not even the rich white men we're taking back the world from Just need you to hear me Just hear me 'Cause sometimes I think It must be nice to be a guy All of your anger justified Get to do whatever you want Nobody callin' you a It must be nice to be a man Walk through the world carefree, you can Walk down the street, wear what you want Nobody grabbin' at your It must be nice It must be nice

Tarot 04:16
I don’t need to read no tarot To know This is goin’ nowhere I don’t need to read no tarot To know This is goin’ nowhere And I can see how it would be easer To love Sleepy little girls reminiscent, reminiscent of your mom All day screamin’ Nothin’s ever enough Nothin’s ever enough Never enough Never enough No it’s never enough Never enough Never enough Write home, tell ‘em you’re on the front lines But you’re lovin’ on the outskirts You’re lovin’ on the outskirts Write home, tell ‘em you’re on the front lines But you’re lovin’ on the outskirts You’re lovin’ on the outskirts I don’t need to read no tarot To know This is goin’ nowhere I don’t need to read no tarot To know This is goin’ nowhere And I see you’re afraid to love me And I see we’re afraid to be loved And I am finished Making plans with you ‘Cause you put me off for someone who doesn’t care You put me off for people who don’t care I don’t need to read no tarot To know This is goin’ nowhere I don’t need to read no tarot To know This is goin’ nowhere Nowhere

I chained I chained myself I chained myself to a Texas oil rig I thought I could save the world With all the love in my heart For somethin’ so destructive Somethin’ so destructive Texas oil rig He exploded on a weekly basis Toss a few rags to clean up the mess I won’t move north, I forgive you I swore before god and everyone I’m in this for life I’m in this for life Til death do us part Death do us Death do us in Honey, I made it out alive Honey, I made it out alive Made it out alive Out alive

Bottles 03:40
Tonight I dreamt of bottles Bottles I’m sayin’ “bottles” ‘cause I don’t wanna say What I really saw Sayin’ “bottles” ‘cause I can’t say What I really saw They’re piled up Laughin’ and smilin’ as they drown in it They’ve no idea what it is Laughin’ and smilin’ They pull me down in it It’s seeping through my lips That disease Of third world countries Their disease Tonight I dream of bottles Bottles

We read your tarot And we got it fuckin’ backwards Put your future in the past So it looked like you were not to fall in love with me Shit was exploding pretty fast Was it your future or your past? And I’m afraid this may not last I’m so afraid this may not last Silence from your end I wonder if you’re with your ex girlfriend Or whatever she is to you I’d like to find her and give her a good talkin’ to I just might find her and give her a good talkin’ to ‘Cause she must have no clue What she’s missing out on ‘Cause forreal, I’d be lying if I said I’ve ever seen A human bean As Goddamn marvelous as you So goddamn marvelous as you Goddamn marvelous as you Goddamn marvelous, that’s you So who am I to believe in fairy tales? I should have known, I should have known, I should have known Am I too old to believe in fairy tales? I should have known, I should have known, I should have known I should have known, I should have known, I should have known I should have known, I should have known, I should have known I should have known, I should have known, I should have known I should have known, I should have known, I should have known

My friend says she’s a nerd But I think she’s really cool Has a garden bigger than all of yours And I think she’s really cool She taught me how to play ukulele like this But she didn’t wanna take credit She always calls ya back when she says she will And if she can’t, she says she’s sorry She’s the most stellar listener I’ve ever met And I’m tellin’ you, that’s quite a skill these days She’s supportive in an unobtrusive way She’s an artist in every kind of way She’s really cool And if ya ever find a true friend You’ll know exactly what I mean Someone to tell some secrets to And you know in your heart They’ll never go anywhere else And zero judgment That’s a really important part of friendship When I get cranky and cry ‘Cause I’m too lazy to feed myself, she says “Would you like some sausage? It’s organic! And butternut squash soup Here’s a little snack to take with you on the road I’ll even write on it ‘eat me’ ‘Cause I know that you need some help sometimes I know we all need some help sometimes” When I’m like “Rachel, I don’t think I can do it” She calmly tells me “Step 1, step 2, step 3, you can do it Here’s how you can” And then I do it Sometimes ya just need a helping hand I’m grateful to have a true friend in this world It’s really hard to find And everyone knows I don’t really like that many people ‘Cause most of them are shitty So thanks for bein’ a real friend Thanks for bein’ a really fucking cool Artist nerdy lady I wish everyone could be nerds Nerds like you Nerds like us
