BG VOX on track 4 chorus by Jonny Whitton.
01. Empathy
jump in - wear my skin - suffer with me - step up - rise to below the underneath - don’t walk away from me - show me grace - show me some - choose me - empathy - empathy - my darkness is mine - my - pleasure’s yours - get ready to freeze, dinosaurs - chorus - one is everything and everything is one - please - chorus

02. The Mad Twitch
get out of my light - get out of the way - go - last time - don’t make me mad - go inside and play - you’re like this twitch in my eye that won’t go (3) away - no makes her cry - makes my head ache - but only when it rains do i complain, which isn’t often - chorus - can’t live my life this way - just make up your mind - pretending to be happy - turns my hair a cloudy gray - don’t have all day - chorus

03. The Raisin Song
i wait for you to leave so i can be myself and pick up where i left off - on top - a cup is missing from the shelf again - keep wondering how emptiness knows - i’ve been at it now... for so long i don’t know if i can stop - quick to fight - she hates to be around me when i don’t eat or sleep all week - a deep ritual of light at night - pretend it isn’t there - hide the eyes - a raisin between my toes - chorus - can’t stop - every saturday is magic - unlike unsafe sundays - too difficult so i hate - have nothing exciting to say - that’s okay - anyway - chorus

04. Fingers In The Door
i had a crush on a lady who looked a lot like marilyn monroe - but when my older sister decided to impersonate her it crushed my love - in the moment - like fingers in the door - what breaks out comes back a little bit deformed - i wish i could throw a baseball as fast as i can change my mind - then i’d know what i should do - because right now i’m stuck - if you noticed - chorus - and what is a little bit deformed is crushed - in the moment - chorus

05. Another One Of Those Days
i recognize the stranger in my life - to accept what is from what was is hard - i recognize the lonely in my heart - but only when i go there - which isn’t much she says - don’t be angry with me - it’s who i am - and love be damned a shape of bitterness suddenly forms her face - where did i go wrong - shay - as she dances away from the lamp - it looks like it’s gonna be another one of those days - another one of those days - i recognize the patterns in my life - to change them is to change me - i recognize the woman in my bed - kinda looks like the one in the picture - hung inside my head - she says you never tell me how you feel - how am i supposed to know guess - ah he smiled - that means he loves me - do you love me - chorus - when i miss myself have i become a ghost - haunting - can’t sleep - make it go away - please - go away - chorus - another one of those days

06. Clam And The Pink 26
lays in bed alone - wishing for love to keep her close - keep her grounded - the knocking pounds and pounds - a crow needs a crow - rain is the reason she let him in (3) - now she can’t get out... - around in a daze, waiting for him to bring her joy - bring her daffodils - the ringing - where dust settles fear seems to grow - chorus (2)

07. Subfectious
use my words - use me - i don’t exist - i am - like change - coming in unannounced - to be dead is to know - and to know is to ride the straight line from a to c - curls again (3) - my talk is hollow - i will admit - i have no idea but ideas - chorus - b is the echo - when it stops i start - chorus

08. Counting Backwards
floating in a world of pure fear and dangerous freedom - counting backwards - let the excitement enter you - on an erotic yet romantic wooden horse - i was screaming profanity at the elephants on parade - be as dangerous as you want (4) - if it’s way out of reach don’t hesitate - i’ll meet you halfway there - from where i stand there’s so much to be proud of - counting backwards - with a fist as my open hand - people i meet - faces i know - up to bat - first day - swing high - keep low - chorus (2)
