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

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...

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

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?

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

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?

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.

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
