Track Name: Prime Numbers
Act one: truth or dare
I’m dismissed as a child by middle school whores while pretending to sleep
Act three: I’m accused of abandoning something
That kicked my head in and gave up on me

Oh, the twos are on the dance floor
And the ones are on stage
I know, it doesn't make a difference
I’m up here but I’m a two anyway

Behold the impressive array of small traumas
You’ve stashed at the back of a memory shelf
The years will go by and this thing that they’ve made you
Will become something you claim for yourself

Oh, the twos are on the dance floor
And the ones are on stage
I know, it doesn’t make a difference
I’m up here but I’m a two anyway

Each whisper carries on its wings
A strength they’ll never know
You can do anything
Once you’ve walked into a party alone

Oh, the twos are on the dance floor
And the ones are on stage
I know, it doesn’t make a difference
I’m up here but I’m a two anyway
The twos are on the dance floor
Anyway
It doesn’t make a difference
It doesn’t make a difference.
Track Name: The Look Back
We’ve all got so much in common,
We should have something to say
When we walk out in the morning,
But it just doesn’t work out that way
They can’t deny they’re curious
They’ve at least got to give me that
‘Cause they bow their heads and walk by
But they always look back

Yeah, they always look back
Yeah, they always look

What if they’re just like us?
They could be our best friends
And what if she’s a drummer?
She could play in your band
Maybe someday I will say hello
It’ll be like a sneak attack
But for now, I walk on
And I always look back

Yeah, I always look back
Yeah, I always look
Track Name: Rattenberg
You know about the spell they’ve got you under
The pain you get from different kinds of hunger
You’ve felt the sting of bumblebees and splinters,
But have you ever known a jet-black winter?

You failed to ask the question that could fix her
It started and was over with a picture
You’ve felt the shame of absolute beginners
But have you ever known a jet-black winter?

The verdict’s out, the jury is united
Some things will only ever be one-sided
You’re branded with the alphabet of sinners
But have you ever known a jet-black winter?
Track Name: A Solitary Life
If beauty’s in the eye of the beholder,
Then ugliness is in her jealous mind
Why do I look good in mirrors but not in photographs?
Because only the first opinion is all mine

What you see makes me look away

Why do I feel like I’ve told you this same story once before?
I never wanted that to be me
Next time I see you, I’ll be sure to keep my mouth shut
That way I’ll spare you from repeats

And for once, I’ll have nothing to say

This is my argument for a solitary life.
