Track Name: byzantine
(for madeline !!!)

met when we were in
the seventh grade
lights on the street
in a big cascade
now we are both turning seventeen
conquer the world like byzantine
Track Name: rose gold
(in memory of zelda who lived a long happy dog life)

the buttons on my skirt
are rose gold rose gold
i turned on the sink and
out came rose gold rose gold
i lost my best friend when
she was 18 years old
i don't see rose gold any more

i look at my legs
i see the moon and saturn
i look at myself
and this is all a pattern
i turned off the lights
i thought this doesn't matter
i don't see rose gold any more
Track Name: teeth
sometimes i just watch the highway
when i need to get away
i have dreams of losing all my teeth
im still not sure what that could mean

im not sure what it means
it's haunting all my dreams

sometimes i go to the library
all the books in a language i can't read
i have dreams of drowning in the sea
i'm still not sure what that could mean

im not sure what it means
it's haunting all my dreams
Track Name: space museum
(for my gal rachy rach)

showed me those yearbook photos
of that guy you no longer know
told me about those songs you knew
asked me if i know them too
i heard texas has a space museum
you're four hours back it's 2:30 am
Track Name: pretty
my best friend is a witch
she was born with a glass heart
collecting gold in glass jars
she puts them on a string
knowing the good things it'll bring
my best friend is a witch
she was born with a gold heart
she lives among the gold stars
she dances under the blue moon
her lipstick drawn on a deep maroon
my best friend is a witch

(she really is a witch i swear)
Track Name: attic
put some boxes into the attic
stuff i didn't think i would need anymore
sat on the floor of my cold bathroom
something felt different than it did before

took some boxes back out of the attic
seems like there were some things i could use once more
sat on my roof overlooking the highway
nothing seems to stay the same anymore
Track Name: safety pin
(for lucy "the 4 percenter")

it was nothing but a safety pin
pressed into my summer skin
i didn't even push that hard
but it still left a mark

took a bus to the city
the stars looked so pretty
at the church basement show
surrounded by faces i don't know

that mark is still on my skin
a thousand dots from a safety pin
the stars are still on my skin
a thousand dots from a safety pin
