Track Name: Cantaloupe
I may be chipped and unfit
Made for snuffing candles
But I'm wax and I'm wick
Waxing wroth at babble
The bubbels from babel
And if my tower is tall
Then each gust is a gamble

Hold me back, hold my hand
Hold my spirit if you can
Take my temper, taking toll
Bombastic broad I'm on a roll
Fearsome face I set my pace
if I'm too fast then hey let's race
I cannot stay I have to say
That I don't know what to say

But there's something in my chest
That stabs me forward takes my breath
I'm still shy enough for pitstops
'Cause I'm fueled by my unrest
If my sadness has you nervous
Or has you feeling tall
Know that I've been bending bullets
While you're staring at a wall
Yes I know I billow brave
Told all my life I must behave
But I'm finally shedding punches
That I took to hide my name

I know I love too reckless
But I'm done with saving face
I forgot and called it healing
Thought being jaded kept me safe
Carry lessons in my body
Like daring to be kind
And it all comes back again
A little farther down the line
Track Name: Baby Teeth
You've got me fishing with cannons
And thinking too short
So why am I still spittin' bait
For reasons you went astray
And reasons I was a last resort

Gave me mouthfuls of rust from trying to hook ya
Cut my lip while you were toying my line
And why couldn't we fall into habit
Couldn't you saddle your hurt with mine?

And I'm missing you like baby teeth
I know something will fill in your space
But why oh why oh why was my love lacking
Why'd you have to turn and give me chase

Gave me mouthfuls of rust from trying to hook ya
Cut my lip while you were toying my line
And why couldn't we fall into habit
Couldn't you saddle your hurt with mine?

Was there something I couldn't give ya
Tell me did someone else hold you fine?
So I'll run on anger 'til I'm done running at all
From the reasons you were never mine
Track Name: Reinvent Her
I've been washing my face in the kitchen sink
I've been washing my face in the kitchen sink
I need a change of pace and space to think
And I've been scalding myself to pass the time
Keep me right, clean up nice, you gotta keep me nice
Was I too nice?

And now I grit to care and so I tear each bit
And I will burn my sheets again do you remember this?
Can I weather this?

Reinvent her, forget her, that ain't me I'm an ember

__

Douse me in the bathwater
Stitch me up, fill and solder
It don't matter it doesn't matter if I was someone's daughter

Reinvent her, forget her, that ain't me I'm an ember
Track Name: Haircut
I've been bookending moments by cutting my hair
And you see I've been growing it long
'Cause distance is more than a measure
I've felt distant since you came along

I've been practicing patience by staying up late
I've been prudent to rise with the sun
But I can't seem to fathom the things that you do
So fickle is as fickle does

I've been juggling my temper trying to stay true
To the things I was taught to be right
What did you do to my open heart
Why am I the one spittin' up spite

When did I start feeling cruel
Stop with your shaking and changing your tune
I thought you could change for the better
But I'm through with changing for you

I've been bookending moments by cutting my hair
And you see I've been growing it long
'Cause distance is more than a measure
I've felt distant since you came along
