Track Name: Burn Out Right
No way to touch me
Don’t even try
I could’ve stopped but
Breaks and engines all on fire

I can’t go slower
I can’t go back 
Got big ol aspirations get what I deserve when

I let myself believe the hype
They ain’t lying son I
Could overdose on my first try

We can beat it
Every soul undefeated
We’ll win them all
Oh my spirit’s 
Fired up on a Monday night
Let’s crash and burn out right

My skin is dripping like candle wax
I could've stopped but
My meltdown will be fantastic

I can’t go slower
I can’t go back
Watch me destroy my ambitions for your amusement

Death comes for all of us 
But not all of us deserve the afterglow
Track Name: Bright Big Red
Tell me I'm gonna be someone
Cuz I was born with the birthmark of a superstar

I am big but not blowing up
Just taking up and space or running down the clock
Don't know to stop

Daddy told me to promise that I’d become an astronaut
But it just feels like I'm floating off into the distance
Heading for a burnout 

Bright big red
Like a dying sun
Collapsing in

Fired up at the slightest touch
Gets hotter than hell with a fever
Boiling up without a burden

I know I'm not the only 
Hyper-focused self-obsessive twenty-something  
With a fire in me that's fading
Either way I'm gonna make it 

I am finding I’m a big ol’ faker
Just a giant big ol’ ball of hot air
Track Name: No Touching
Finding insides on the sidewalk
A pint of blood in a bag
And three hearts beat red against a black backdrop
I touch em leave em why's my skin still dry
Because I

Tried to pull it but the door don't open
Tried to push it but the frame stood still so I
Sat outside and heard the noise erupting
Of two lovers making love with no touching

Felt my mind race in a fast car
Going speeding past a public park
Hands are gripping for the clutch and eyes are darting around
For some odd reason I can't sit still
I'm floating up against the windowsill

Oh God
My gears feel light since this new kind of opening up
Pulled back my outer parts, inside the red and dark
My reflected deepest cuts
Track Name: Native Advertising
I live alone, live alone
And I’m passing the time
Undressed in bed on my phone
Pretending it’s dark out when it’s light 

You come along like a song but I
Never wrote it down
So I sing it back twenty times
So I can keep you stuck in my head
Every time
But I know

We're still a far cry from honest connection
Cuz we don’t hang out in person, and I don’t think I want to

Cuz I get off knowing you’re far away
And you get off pretending it’s the real thing
Girl you know I’m not the real thing

I feel alive, feel alive
Waiting for you to reply
Out on a date faking smiles
Pretending I’m there but I’m with you
Every time

We're still a far cry from honest connection
Cuz we don’t hang out in person, and I don’t think I want to

Cuz I get off knowing you’re far away
And you get off pretending it's the real thing
Girl you know I'm not the real thing
Just here to confuse your brain
Not leave a trace
I pretend I was the real thing
You’re my native advertising
