Track Name: Almonds In Shell
Grow up
A job
An education
Track Name: Trespassers Will Be Shot On Sight
I go where monsters roam
And here they swallow you whole
I wish somebody had taught me how to not get eaten alive
I watch for hours while they wrestle with bones
The clicking, the mocking, and the groans grow
As if somebody had taught us how to not dare fend for our lives
I go where monsters go

"This is no place to go
You cannot come in
They won't tell you again
They will shoot you down"

We learn
We learn
We learn
Track Name: Tea Lady
Spend more time out
Get your skin touched
Don't let anybody know

Spend more time up
Get more sugar
Don't let anybody know
Track Name: Fancy Forever
I want to love my heart out
I want to laugh and sing
No heavy thoughts about anything
I am fancy forever
And with good friends all around me
Filling our cups just right
That's where I always want to be
I am fancy forever

Good nest, good lover, good light
Strong fire lighting my night
I've got no worries
I am fancy forever
