Totem 03:02
Taught to swim by being thrown in Chose a route instead of roaming Always dealt under the table Never settled for a label An empty stage A rattled cage You deviate We carve a totem for your grave Chasing feelings just to stay true Thank yous given lacking value Sorrys taken never offered Fame denied and chances squandered Tried to build but tools left blisters Chopping wood created splinters Boxed up tiresome thoughts too often Sinking nails into the coffin
2.
Facetime 02:05
Face time, important Real talk, avoided Fear creeping, inside you Won’t do this, or will you? The money, it feeds you The money, it makes you I don’t wanna go Won’t go back now The money, it feeds you The money, it makes you Not gonna follow you Even if you know how Your actions, are guided By those, providing Don’t doubt, they’re sayin' The dough, they’re payin' Election, you got it The people, they bought it A servant, you’ve become Just not for, good reasons

My Rites 02:26
I won’t be unrealistic But I wish I were more prolific How are you so optimistic? Maybe I’m just much too passive I cannot be more aggressive That just strikes me as offensive Lost desire to seek your praise Always misconstrued I desire not to impress you You call all my failures vice Take credit for my pursuits I desire not to impress you I can’t sell my own success Don’t see talk as virtue I desire not to impress you We know nonsense charms the masses How does no one see through? I desire not to impress you Look. Look at me. Look. Look at me. Cheering your own victories Presumptions become truth Still desire not to impress, you I will learn to shout out All the good things that I do Still desire not to impress, you Look. Look at me. Look. Look at me.

Bow 03:14
Kicking at air And punching stone How I act out When I'm alone I Tried To abide And failed When you lied And we fought So I bought What you sold With no thought Gonna take a bow This scene is through There’s no more left Between me and you I Tried To abide And failed When you lied And we fought So I bought What you sold
5.
You’re Plastic, you’re perfect You took out what was wrong And you fixed it You’re plastic, you’re perfect You took what you had and improved it Siliconed and sealed. All the scars are healed. Everything has been lifted Cuz you didn’t like what was gifted. Watched all the shows and rags Saw what the others had Said it was time to be The best that you could be Everything is color corrected From eyes to hair to lashes With the right shoes to match And every hair’s been waxed With all those clothes you’re stashin' Always the latest fashion You’ve used those cards to death But who cares about a little debt?
6.
Starch 02:12
You step in a room All eyes look away When you ask a question No one knows what to say Scared to let me play a greater part How does life taste with so much starch? I can hardly manage To spend days like this Pushing paper for you now Earning full benefits I’ll work the system Give the answers you want I won’t beg to differ My time’s gonna come
7.
Bearing witness you deny Growing into every lie Squandered gifts serve to distract A constant threat to set you back You’re afraid To begin Claim yourself From what you’ve been Counting pennies, tossing dimes Stretch a dollar into time Acquiesce to those that say Crooked words and lead the way
8.
Small 03:23
All is grand according to messages you pile at our feet Suck the air out of a room with every comment, laugh, and tweet Spouting vapid verses of so-­‐called knowledge to your willing herd Not as great as you may think; sense of self-importance is absurd Gonna make myself small, make myself so small, I won’t be Gonna make myself small, make myself so small, you won’t see Me wrap myself up, wrap myself so tight, I won’t feel Gonna Wrap myself up, wrap myself so tight, I can’t deal Publish life with no regard for those that fail to fit into your plan Attention deficit keeps you pushing buttons when you can See yourself outside the box, actually you’re deep in a pit Stay out of my hula hoop, I promise to ignore your clique

It's all been done before. Will all be done again. Still just a few cents off. It must be close enough.
