Track Name: Hollywood
Widen your world, it's narrow
So many possible shapes outside of the lines
Lead them astray in your fable
So they won't see you cry

Slow down, easy there Hollywood
Writing your name now,
Up and down the neighbourhood
Slow down, easy there Hollywood
You gotta live up to it
Before they say you're good

Up in the trees in your castle,
Nobody visits a friend so out of the way
Cover the break in your laughter
Like you do with the lines on your face
And face that you might have some growing
Left in those brittle bones,
But what do I know?
Maybe we both need to slow down
Before the power lines take over

[Chorus]

Leap through the clouds without warning
You're just a silhouette, soaked in rain that you made
Happens so fast every morning
Almost everyone says its a phase

[Chorus]

Your pride is infectious
But we can't let it get to us
Track Name: Covered in Gold
It’s the way, now
we say we’re sorry
won’t you open the gates for me, oh
covered in gold

In another life
we’ll share this story
words that hold me so I’m only yours
paint me all gold

I’ve got a fire burning inside me
I’ve gotta find it, before it finds me

It’s the walk down
that makes us worry
the fifteenth minute of our glory, oh
it’s getting older than this

sorry, but sorry doesn’t cut it
when the ships sound alarms in the ether
am I allowed to love it?
they’re here now

I’ve got a fire burning inside me
I’ve gotta find it, before it finds me

open the flood gates and let me in
let me in
beautiful things unfold
covered in gold
Track Name: Shoot Me
Shoot me in the chest cause I'm already dead, you can be my guest baby

I'm tired of running around, eyes shut, pretending I'm not the wild one
And I'm done with the caging up of our young minds, blaming them for their surprise

So Shoot me in the chest cause I'm already dead, you can be my guest baby

Alone, making this prison of ours their home, taking prescriptions for being golden
(They're golden)
Sit still, with this beating inside their chests, just aching to do their best

So Shoot me in the chest cause I'm already dead, you can be my guest baby

Lovin' yourself ain't easy
When you're young and wanna please them
Biting the hand that feeds you so well (oh well)

So Shoot me in the chest cause I'm already dead, you can be my guest baby
So shoot me in the chest
Cause I'm already dead to you
And I'm tired
So go ahead and shoot me
Track Name: Nothing I Wouldn't Do
When you leave without saying goodbye
You’re leading me on, so honestly try
and save me with grace
when I need it the most
I know we are not hopeless

And I get to counting the ways
that you do
‘cause ain’t nothing I,
I wouldn’t do for you
there’s nothing I wouldn’t do

When the wind brings you home to me
I know that you and I can do anything
You love me with grace
in the middle of fire
and here, we build empires

And I get to counting the ways
that you do
‘cause ain’t nothing I,
I wouldn’t do for you
there’s nothing I wouldn’t do

It’s a sweet kind of mistake
to get to know you in every way
Even your dark side is a summer’s day
And I’m doing my best for you
I gotta confess to you

that I get to counting the ways
that you do
‘cause ain’t nothing I,
I wouldn’t do for you
there’s nothing I wouldn’t do
Track Name: Baby Gonna Say
What's your little baby gonna say
When she finds out all your days are done?

She's in love with the morning
You're in love with the wild run
She puts flowers in her hair
Says you're the only one

[Chorus]

She dreams only in colour
Saw yourself in her effigy
Thought you'd only be lovers
But you made a refugee
From a darlin sweet as she

[Chorus]

Oh run baby run, before you come undone
Spent the summer in the sun
Now you're burning up
Run baby run, before you come undone
'cause you're not the only one

[Chorus]
