Track Name: Estradiol
Just know you’re not alone
There are others whose sins must be atoned
I’ve been living a ten percent life
And if I don’t change now…

You’ll find me with a pocketknife
Ready to take my own life

Just know that you’re definitely alone
How could we have ever known?
When you said that you hated your body
How could we have ever known?

That you’d find me with a pocketknife
Ready to burn everything in sight

Won’t God save your transgender soul?
(Broad shoulders, wide neck, too tall, too large)
Won’t God ever grant you control?
(Wrong parts, wrong shape, wrong size, wrong soul)

How could we have ever known?
Track Name: DXM
Swallow me whole
Slithers down your throat
A warm choke

Close your eyes
Wake in the dead of night
Wait for the screams to keep you up
I can’t take, I can’t take it
Please help me, ‘cause I’m in hell
You lied, yeah, you lied, you lied

Why did you lie?

I’m just scared of being okay
I’m sick of thinking of something to say

It’s easier to hear you talk
Than to think of what to say
I can’t think, I can’t think of…
Please take this pain from me
You lied, yeah, you lied, you lied

I’m just scared of being okay
I’m sick of begging you to stay
Track Name: 25C
Waiting for 4 AM to come
Watching red, blue, green dance upon the walls
Circles upon circles keep us apart

But what if our minds never revive?
Oceans of emotion drown our thoughts away
But what if the voices never return?
Imagine, the quiet before the storm

I can fake it
I can’t take the noise in my head
I can break it
I can’t stand the blood in my veins

Waiting for the dawn to come
The night will last forever, and I promise that we’ll never
Be alone again

I can fake it
I can’t take the noise in my head
I can break it
I can’t stand it
Track Name: Klonopin
Here comes the moonlight
Let’s dance all night long to the tune of this drug
Here comes the darkness
Let’s drink ourselves dry ‘til we lay down to die

Just breathe, don’t think about that blade
Don’t listen, that voice it’s just insane
What are you gonna do? Just wait until it comes?
Before you panic, try taking this drug

Here comes the moonlight
Let’s party all night long ‘til we’re dead and gone
Here comes the empty void
Let’s rail some more lines, we do it all the time

Drink that beer, pop another pill
Don’t worry, it’s all just for thrills
Take another shot, it’ll numb the pain
Your heart won’t stop, it can take the strain
Don’t think, don’t stop, just another drop
You’ll never find your mind again, the voices will never stop

“Hey, man, you doing okay? You seem kind of pale.”
“What?”
“Do you know where you are?”
“I don’t think so.”
“You’re in my room. I think you should go to bed.”
“Why?”

“Why aren’t you waking up?
“Shit, shit, shit, why aren’t you waking up?
“What the fuck’s wrong with you?”
“Wake up!”
“Oh, fuck, why aren’t you waking up?”
“Please God, let her wake up.”
“Don’t leave, please.”

This is what you get
This is what you fucking get
