Track Name: The Many Profiles of Rose
unlike the rest of my generation
i’m not screaming, “someone take me!”
i’ll put love on the back-burner 
instead of waiting for a forced awakening

and if you ever feel lonely
just take a look at your profiles, sweetheart
pick someone else to love, to trust - it’s not what you want 
it’s just another one to forget when you grow apart

every day, i see the same thing happening
any method, you just keep on snapping
you’re living life through your rose-tinted lens
don’t you wanna be more than facebook friends?

the old days had the right idea
you had to earn someone’s affection
now just swipe right, be judged on what you look like
and act like you can take rejection

and if you ever feel lonely
just take a look at your profiles, darling
pick someone to lust over, blush over - i told you
it’s not enough to meet your prince charming

every day, i see the same thing happening
any method, you’ll just keep on snapping
you’re living life through your rose-tinted lens
don’t you wanna be more than facebook friends?

he feels claw marks in his back, and he learns after the fact
this was no passionate act - just a way to mark him and ward away the others
sore heart back on track but she keeps pulling him back
to take a profile picture stat - but he left his smile between the covers
he’s on his back and he learns after the fact
this was no passionate act - just a way to mark him and ward away the others
sore heart back on track but she keeps pulling him back
to take a profile picture stat - but he left his smile between the covers

every day, i see the same thing happening
any method, you just keep on snapping
you’re living life through your rose-tinted lens
don’t you wanna be more than, wanna be more than
every day i see the same thing happening
any method you just keep on snapping
you’re living life through your rose-tinted lens
don’t you wanna be more than facebook friends?
Track Name: Cocaine Kiss
i think it’s natural for a cynic to get stressed
when the negatives in someone fade away to nothingness
dangerous territory to be feeling like this
i must partake cause I’m addicted to your cocaine kiss

fumbling with the top of your skinny jeans
my neck feels warmer where your lips found me
stumbling clumsily towards the bed
can’t think of any place I’d rather end up instead

and i’m dazing
seems i’ve been gazing
ain’t no harm with us just staying in
cause once i’ve had your cocaine kiss, i might as well be blazing

oh, you invaded every inch of my brain
and i surrendered after fighting in vain
angel eyes with a devil’s look
the chance arose and now you got me caught on your hook

and i’m sinking
my ears are ringing
my symptoms tell me i’ve been drinking
but i ain’t touched no booze or punch, your kiss just got me limping

come up beside me
you do so much more than excite me
it ain’t that hard to just ignite me
cause girl you make me flammable, just pour your fuel and light me, baby, light me!
Track Name: Skylines
oh, my heart trembles at the phantoms
of future collisions and all these decisions; 
no, i am not seated in visions of entropy.

and when the feelings are sidelined 
i'll be beside mine to measure a lifetime;
no, i am not rooted in skylines or legacies.

the past strikes the future and colours aren’t there anymore
there are dents on the mainframe and a pressure leak in the core
Track Name: Flux
the bait is there, but i ain’t biting
if you’re the thunder, i’m the lightning
i should be bitter, but i love the abuse
don’t mind me sighing

a masochist kissing this hedonist’s wrists
i just relinquish it
cause where’s the fun in control
if it all turns to shit?

it’s pretty bright for midnight, wouldn’t you say?

oh, babe, i’m megalomaniacal
my demons told me to deny it all
i’m a flawed little person
but i’m pliable

i can bend into whatever shape you want
it’ll take some getting used to, but so what?
i’m in a state of flux
just waiting for a coup detente

it’s pretty bright for midnight, wouldn’t you say?

i’m just so stuck on you

i’m treading water, and i’m so fucking close to drowning
