Track Name: Young Lady, You're Scaring Me
Let’s get a house, you and me and your twelve cats
We’ll put mirrors on the ceiling
We’ll have a bunk bed by the bath
You’ll line my mattress with nails
One for every time something psycho came out of your mouth
Your cavern eyes are preying
Your scarlet lips half saying
A sales pitch for the circus in your mind

Young lady, you’re scaring me

Dumbbell right to the temple
Carry me to your shrine
Dedicated to the prince of the last of your nine lives
She waited in the darkest corner all night
Until I closed up shop, I turned out the lights
Then she begged for me to drive her home
I thought about the Kensington Strangler as I was about to say “NO”
When we pulled up to her bleeding dollhouse
She said, “Park behind the hearse.”
I said, “No need. Get out and take your purse.”

Young lady, you’re scaring me

Remember that time you wrote me two hundred letters, never once to a single reply?
Remember they all referenced a love that wasn’t real?
Considering we talked maybe one or two times

Young lady, you’re scaring me
Track Name: Please Yourself
Trying to please everybody
You just let everyone down
Including yourself

Don’t wanna be like the old oak tree
Spend my whole life helping everybody breathe
Now I’m a bench in a courtroom
Everyone is trying to blame it all on me

Don’t want to be like the asphalt on the street
Spend my whole life letting everybody walk all over me
All the pressure and the cracks
Now they’re all trying to blame it all on me

Trying to please everybody
You just let everyone down
Including yourself
You’ve got to please yourself
