Track Name: I Think I'm In Love
Black and white chocolate sinks into my stomach
Like black and white thoughts of you plummet.
My tied tongue tells me I really want you,
But the things you want the most are the ones you can't pursue.

I think I'm in love
I think I'm in love
I think I'm in love
I think I'm in love

Black and white milkshakes entrench my teeth
Like currents of you pull me down so deep.
I really don't need this, I really do not,
But the last thing you need is the first thing you got.

I think I'm in love
I think I'm in love
I think I'm in love
I think I'm in love

Can you tell me why this feels so wrong and so right?
Why do I get sugar high every time you put your hand in my hand?

Black and white cookies crumble down my throat
Like words meant for you but I choke.
Almost exposed but I can stuff it all back in
I guess everything happens for a reason.

I think I'm in love
I think I'm in love
I think I'm in love
I think I'm in love
Oh, I know I'm in love
I know I'm in love
I know I'm in love
I know I'm in love
Track Name: Drop In The Ocean
I want to take the plunge but know that I should not;
The waves I'd make would be too deep to swim through.
Oh, my sailor, you should run - if on my brine you could walk -
But if you could, I wouldn't have to flee you.

I daydream of soft and shallow waters,
Where I picture my thirst for you in motion,
But I know that I am my mother's daughter;
Life together would be a drop in the ocean.

Blue looks towards me, push me down into the deep end,
But none of your red letters will I wear.
You're just a fish in my sea, and I wish that I could pretend,
I don't know you, I don't even care...

But I daydream of soft and shallow waters,
Where I picture my thirst for you in motion,
But I know that I am my mother's daughter;
Life together would be a drop in the ocean.

I don't love you; I love him.
Please don't sink me;
Sailor let me swim,

Cause I daydream of soft and shallow waters,
Where I picture my thirst for you in motion,
But I know that I am my mother's daughter;
Life together would be a drop in the ocean.
Track Name: Connect The Dots
If Life is a game of connect-the-dots,
We must be those dots across the page
Disconnected by a series of thoughts,
Involving involvement in a pointless love craze
Two lonely love-hungry fragments of soul,
Searching for some Life to which we can find a connection.
The only problem is; I only feel whole
When broken in the throes of your physical affection.

You make me an adult in a child's manifestation.
You're just a funny kid yourself in an adult's situation.
You ask me: "Who am I?"; I don't quite understand-
Who are you? Who do you think I am?

If Life is a game of tic-tac-toe, we must be the aimless Os
Playing where we please,
Thinking that we gird the grid of Life in Truth, although
The Truth is that we only play when played with ease.
Maybe we're too open and a loss would serve us right,
Maybe we have lost so much we both deserve a win.
The only thing I know is I have never felt delight
That parallels the petrifying place you put me in.

You make me an adult in a child's manifestation.
You're just a funny kid yourself in an adult's situation.
You ask me: "Who am I?"; I don't quite understand-
Who are you? Who do you think I am?

I think the whole idea of love is a mind-game that we play quite well.
If we were picking teams the only thing I'd ask of you is- please be on my side,
Cause lately I feel like I'm running up against myself.
I'm falling fast, flying face-forward but you won't catch me in the rye.

You make me an adult in a child's manifestation.
You're just a funny kid yourself in an adult's situation.
You ask me: "Who am I?"; I don't quite understand-
Who are you? Who do you think I am?
Track Name: Sleep
I wake up with sleep's memories on my eyelids;
Thinking of you there is no escape.
I claw for the light but my chest calls for you
As I awake.

In the day, I clutch my stomach with thoughts of you;
You're always just beyond my grasp.
I try to open my mouth to call out,
But all I can do is gasp.

Sweet sleep go down
Deep, deep, deep, deep, deep
Into dreaming.
I go so low,
I go so deep, deep, deep, deep, deep,
But I always wake up
Silently screaming.
Track Name: Mount Rushmore
This morning I woke in the womb of your arms,
Thinking prematurely on the possible harm
Your warm unopened eyelids could do to me

But I’m just a babe wrapped in your bed.
You’re a beautiful fable wrapped in my head
So many words left unsaid I wish I’d set free

But your lips kiss my cement face, and I disintegrate
Your lips kiss my cement face, and I disintegrate, disintegrate, disintegrate.

All my time in your hands is an unhealthy abate
To force myself out and force myself awake
But, as of late, without you its difficult to rest

So I figure I’ll swim til I sink in the sea
Of whatever this is you’ve got incubating in me
And hopefully, not fall in the process

But your lips kiss my cement face, and I disintegrate
Your lips kiss my cement face, and I disintegrate, disintegrate, disintegrate.
