Track Name: Best Your Worst
stressed out completely
shaking fists don’t fail me
lots of dirty dishes lately
what does that say about me

I'm giving not taking
good advice thats offered from you
I'm pushing you away
and not telling you the truth

I'm defensive and restless
unopposed fights are nothing new
ground teeth, eyes wide
I know that we’ll get through

I've seen your best your worst
I've gotta try remember the first
I've seen your best your worst
I've gotta try remember the first
Track Name: The War on Men
i want you to know
that i feel sorry for you
and i really understand how hard it is for you now

to be a privileged white man
not able to understand
why you're feeling so threatened
when all your life you've felt safe
with women being in their place
i know your brains feeling a little overburdened

and I'm scared
that these boys will
never learn to hunt never learn to fish never learn how to fight
its not fair
to deny them
of their basic human rights to be the man they're told to be
I'm scared for our national security
Track Name: Phenomenal Ladies
message me when you're feeling down
I'm sorry i cant always be around
changing cities, countries constantly
who knows where our next homes will be


but I'm
so proud of you all
in every way get it girls
so motivational
this sisterhood of angels

who knew
through cheap pink wines
we’d be so alike

true blue
with your advice
i’ll shrug it off and enjoy tonight

thats why I'm
so proud of you all
in every way get it girls
so motivational
this sisterhood of angels
Track Name: Kei Tamaki
too close to home
no adventure

I've always
felt so jaded about this city
the biggest small town
in our small country

but my attitude towards auckland is never constant
i thought that i would feel huge changes with the distance
going away and growing up made all the difference
no longer feeling we are here out of reluctance

too close to home
no adventure

its divided
communities pushed to compass points
but i guess
i can be proud of something flawed
Track Name: Eden Terrors
why
its not fair
that no
one cares

that you cant fit all those pins on one wedding board
your thinspiration comes in the form of cursive words

he’s got her hand
her heart
can't she see that he doesn't want it
best mate, add-on on vodaphone
can't she see that he doesn't want it

and he’s got her cat
her dog
cant she see that he doesn't want it
shared ice cream cones
shared lives
cant she see that he doesn't want it

you cant fit all those pins on one wedding board
your thinspiration comes in the form of cursive words

why
its not fair
that no
one cares
Track Name: People I Don't Like
wasted days
why don't we
just try
surviving

these extra hours don't add up to
the time wasted money spent the anger hurting you
no time to attack my weekly to dos
lists are growing faster than i can get through

people i don't like
getting into fight
pretending to care
only when the boss is there

these extra hours don't add up to
the time wasted money spent the anger hurting you
no time to attack my weekly to dos
lists are going faster than i can get through
Track Name: Zuri Gaffney
even though she cant speak, i get her
always, so scared that she will forget me, forget me
she makes me feel like I'm her best friend
her only friend

just being around her
makes me feel better
that beautiful white fur
i’ll love her forever

when she gives you
that crazy smile
that look in her eyes
saying take me out
her tail wagging
she's sniffing around
and nudging the door
saying take me out right now

i love her more than most people
i love her more than most people
i love her more than most people
i love her more than most people

just being around her
makes me feel better
that beautiful white fur
i’ll love her forever

i love her more than most people
Track Name: Smash
head down
I'm so wrapped in anxiety I've shut down
but you know
just how to lessen my stress and lighten my load
you're no average joe
you know how to let go
and to move on

what we've begun
we cant undo
all that you've done
and all you do
you've got me sprung
I'm so into you
I'm ready to run
smash into you

you’re here you know
you're what makes me feel safe when I'm low
when in slow
I'm lazy crass but you don't care at all
and I'm impatient unkind sometimes
but you put up with my shit all the time
and we have plans to come

what we've begun
we cant undo
all that you've done
and all you do
you've got me sprung
I'm so into you
I'm ready to run
smash into you

all that you've done you've done you've done you've done you've done
i wanna run run run run run
you've got me sprung
I'm so into you
I'm ready to run
smash into you
i wanna run run run run run
what we've begun begun begun begun
all that I've done and all you do
i wanna run smash into you
Track Name: Take Your Place in the World
I'm sat in the university of otago’s toilets
crying my eyes out while the girl next cubicle laid a brick
no reception on my phone to receive your sorry texts
or to call my best girlfriend to talk about this
to talk about this

I'm walking aimlessly around dunedin crying
you've just gone ahead and you're not even trying to
catch up with me as i storm away, I'm lost and i’ll be
trying figure out why this happened
why this happened

i know why this happened

do you know where i am

you have no idea
where i am
and i don't want you to know
maybe i’ll just meet you
at the airport
for our plane to auckland tomorrow

tomorrow
