Track Name: Target Parking Lot Song
i can tell you that i'm sorry, but its all i ever say
and i can pretend that i'm okay, i've been doing it all day
and i'm running out of words, or running out of patience
i'm wishing i'd forget all of the times i hesitated
i've come out of the closet at least three separate times
and everyday there's something new i realize
about myself, and thats okay
i'd rather be myself than be any other way x2

i'm trying harder than ever to do what i want when i can
and i'm being a lot more honest with my friends
i'm done pretending, i'm done forgetting
every thing that's happened matters
i'm taking matters into my own hands

i'll tell you how i feel and i'll mean it
i'll cry in the target parking lot
i'll tell you i love you, i'll say it real loud
so everyone around us knows

i'll tell you how i feel and i'll mean it
Track Name: Do It 4 Yrself (DI4Y)
every day my beliefs are solidified, yeah every day i hear someone being an asshole and i remember why i started this whole thing anyway, i remember how i was feeling, oh, how i was feeling

look up to the sun or go outside and ride your bike, or play a ukulele
just do it for yourself
so DIY or DIT, have a bonfire and make some moon tea
just do it for yourself

i wake up and tell myself "yes i can" i say that i'll get better and i'll talk about the weather and i know how hard you try everyday, and i promise i'm trying just as hard all the time
Track Name: Criss/Cross (On the Kitchen Floor)
I've lived in my room for the past three years
and I'm not sure if you have even noticed
and I can't wait to spend my days
making zines in the living room
or sleeping in the middle of the hallway
or sitting criss-cross, eating on the kitchen floor
or doing my own dishes, not yours

and it's okay that we're broken
and it's fine that you dont know me or my friends
you think we're reckless but we're not
we're gonna change the world, we're gonna start a band
we're gonna run for president, we're gonna take a stand
we're gonna do great things, and you won't see a thing
Track Name: I Grew Up (In a Big, Big House)
i grew up in a big, big house, with the coolest tree i've ever seen in my back yard
i grew up being terrified right after my uncle died, thinking the same thing could happen to my friends

but i won't let the shit that got to me when i was ten define who i am today
no i won't let it get to me cause i have to be strong and mature, whatever the fuck that means

i grew up hating men, i grew up hating more specifically the people who hurt you and me
i grew up wondering what comes after suffering but now i know its this weird period of getting angry


but i won't let the shit that got to me when i was ten define who i am today
no i won't let it get to me cause i have to be strong and mature, whatever the fuck that means

i grew up moving every other month, i grew up sleeping on the couch and now i like sleeping on the couch
you've seen hell about nine times, and you've walked in circles a couple more, but i won't hold that against you

cause i won't let the shit that got to me when i was ten, definte who i am today
no i won't let it get to me cause i have to be strong and mature, whatever the fuck that means
