This album wouldn’t be possible without the generous efforts of countless people and places I’ve
had the privilege of knowing- Thank You! - Kickstarter Backers - Bryan Brundige - Kiki Vassilakis - Meagan Duffy -Dylan Perrillo - Brandon Isles - Caroline Corrigan - Rob (the cat) - Albany, NY - Portland, OR - Troy, NY - Potsdam, NY - Laura Glazer - Chris Wienk - 97.7 WEXT - The Times Union - Regina ( ‘95 Honda Odyssey ) - And of course, my incredible friends and family, you’ve made my life begin, you’ve brought me to my forefront, only with you have I survived the recurring detonations of life and love.
All of me,
Olivia

Track Name: Weight/Wait
WEIGHT/WAIT

Move like bricks, you’re faded like a star
and I feel it all the time (no?)
do you feel it all the time?

When you move it’s usually bizarre
But I feel it all the time (no)
Do you feel it all the time?

Never thought I could feel this human
With no need to compensate
So you move like bricks, baby, do you?
Well at least you’ve got some weight…
And I wait.

Behind the truth, it’s lingering with your eyes
And I feel it all the time (No?)
do you feel it all the time?

Never thought I could feel this human
With no need to compensate
So we move like bricks, we do we do
But at least we’ve got some weight

I feel it all the time
I feel it all the time
I feel it all the time
Track Name: Easy Killer
EASY KILLER

Nothing more to say
Nothing more to do
Painted all the cards
Dusky shades of blue
I don’t wanna be one of many
I don’t wanna be one of some
I wanna be the only one

You were an easy killer
You had me killin’ from the start
As I lay here dying
The jealousy bleeds from my heart
I knew you’d kill me
From the start, I knew you would
But as I lay here dying
It stills feels so good

Tell me can you see
All the beauty
Between the ground and the trees
Your waist and your knees
I know you must have a core you can control

You were an easy killer
You had me killin’ from the start
As I lay here dying
The jealousy bleeds from my heart
I knew you’d kill me
From the start, I knew you would
But as I lay here dying
It stills feels so good

How can you tell?
Thought I pulled it off so well
Just tell me where to go...
We know what’s right although,
we end up down below

You, easy killer
You had me killin’ from the start
As I lay here dying
The jealousy bled from my heart
I knew you’d kill me
From the start I knew you would
And as I lay here dying
It’s still feels
so...
Track Name: Lukewarm Action
LUKEWARM ACTION

I’m laying down my weapons
Did you even know that I was armed?
I guess when you’re too numb to wonder
You won’t know you’ve caused any harm

Touch me first doesn’t mean
Touch me last, or in-between
I waited on the alcohol
I was still sipping on grenadine

I don’t hurt, I don’t hurt
No baby, I’m worth more than that

You made me question my worth
Came out worse than I even heard
Acting like someone that no one deserves
No one deserves

Made me question my worth
Take me out, right here, on reserve
Acting like someone that no one deserves
No one deserves

I was out, getting weak
Out there in your losing streak
Now I’ve been a fool for a decade
Cause you were my toy for an hour

Feeling I gotta surrender to some power
But there’s no power, you’re just a coward
Who only wants their own satisfaction
Oh I’m tired, don’t you know I’m tired
of this Lukewarm Action
Track Name: The Bomb
THE BOMB

What happened to all the life you held?
Now you’re getting weary ‘cause you’re still on the move
If our river runs so open wide:
You can’t drink from it- oh, you’re gonna run me dry

So baby, c’mon
‘Cause it’s comin’ real fast, comin’ real fast now
And I wanna hold on
But I’ve been tickin’ in the past; you’re standing in the past
So I named you after ‘The Bomb’
‘Cause the damage that you do, it’s gonna last
Oh, don’t you remember getting burned?

Blocked it’s face a thousand times
Now, hardly bleeding, but still taking a beating
Learned something ‘’bout this heart of mine
I cannot implore it if I do nothing but ignore it

So baby, c’mon
‘Cause it’s comin’ real fast, comin’ real fast now
And I wanna hold on
But I’ve been tickin’ in the past; you’re standing in the past
So I named you after ‘The Bomb’
‘Cause the damage that you do, it’s gonna last
Oh, don’t you remember getting burned?
Didn’t it feel good...getting burned?
Track Name: How Low The Moon
HOW LOW THE MOON

My eyes drop their rain for you
I feel that dull pain for you
When you died I didn’t know how to break

Had to add one and two
In places I shouldn’t have to
But I forget, I’d forgotten you weren’t awake

Your mind’s a crazy machine
And your heart’s been asleep
at least when I met you
I’m wondering, “where do your dreams go?”
And how could I say goodnight?
You know I wish you may, hope you might
God, I gotta get you out of sight
I’m singing, “How Low the Moon” tonight?
How low the moon tonight
How low the moon tonight

Your ghost has come back to this town
Chance is high I’ll see you around
But you’ve been comin’ with another
Your memory I smother

Who knows what’s wrong or right?
I wish my heart didn’t put up such a fight
to what could never work/never be?

Your mind’s a crazy machine
and your heart was asleep
at least when I knew you
I’m running down our open stream
How could you say goodnight?
You know I wish you may, hope you might
God, I gotta get you out of sight
I’m singing “How low the moon tonight”
How low the moon tonight
How low the moon tonight

Thing is, you’re not really dead
But in my head you have to be
I know, oh I know you don’t give a damn about me

Your mind’s a lazy machine
Your heart is asleep
Thought that I could wake you
I’m running to follow that dream
How could you say goodnight?
You know I wished you may, hope you might
Lovin’ you just wasn’t right
I’m singing “How Low the Moon Tonight”
How low the moon tonight
How low the moon tonight
How low the moon
Track Name: Love I Carry
LOVE I CARRY

Oh shame
Oh shame
Oh shame
You fired aim and found my name

It’s everything not everyone
It’s never been just all or none
Glad I’m not the only one
Whose heart strings have come undone
Come undone, come undone

Oh blame
Oh blame
Oh blame
You dampen my every, every flame

Sometimes I’m so solitary
Baby, it’s involuntary
You’d have to be solitary
If it’s your love that I carry

It seemed to me sad;
your day not affected by the lover that you wake with
our beating organs always disconnected
‘cause the others lay unprotected
I wish my skin weren’t starving
I only burn my tongue
bite in some direction..
when drinking nights have come
but who came?

Oh flame
Oh flame
Oh flame
My fire I fear you’ve tamed

Stuck in my periphery
every time you are near
if trust were not the question,
would you answer dear?
Track Name: Don't Worry
DON’T WORRY

Don’t worry your pretty little head
Don’t worry your pretty little head
Over me
Over me

It’s true I’ve been waking in bed
I imagine your pretty little head
over me
over me

Now my brain is just a frame
for all the photographs
of the hit, the disaster and the aftermath

Will you be just another baited hook for me?
will you drag me on, or alone?

I don’t care about that pretty little house
all I wanted was a lover, not a spouse
I don’t need no ring
so, don’t worry your pretty little head
don’t worry your pretty little head
over me
over me

‘Cause the nature of the sound
is enough to keep things around
whether you’re just a part of a song
or you’re the whole melody

So don’t worry your pretty little head
Don’t worry your pretty little head
over me
over me

It’s true I’ve been waking up in bed
when I should be sleeping instead
over me
over me


And no matter where you bring that voice
I wish I’d hear you sing
You know that you have never been apart..
You’re the whole melody

//

I wanna make you breakfast
forget everything I said
wait ‘til the water boils
climb back into bed

nothing left to spoil
except the fear inside your head
fear could hold this heavy weight
we could’ve held it both instead,

love.
