Track Name: coffin shopping
shopping for coffins
i shouldn't have told you at all
i text you, you call me, i ignore it
please dont break my fall

toronto born, toronto bred, and one day i'll be toronto dead
toronto born, toronto bred, and one day i'll be toronto dead

a man in a pea coat and a top hat
he stands at his door
he says 'lil lady, so soon?
what brings you to my store?'

i say 'oak is no good, mahogany is no better
the newspaper said you would be my abettor'
and maybe ive come to the wrong place entirely
outside the store you are waiting for my quietly

'you're a coward, you're a punk, not a poet, you're pathetic'
and i know im apathetic but i swear im apologetic
but i dont know the right words to say how im feeling
and im sorry, this is no place for me and im leaving

toronto born, toronto bred, and one day i'll be toronto dead
toronto born, toronto bred, and one day i'll be toronto dead
toronto born, toronto bred, and one day i'll be toronto dead
toronto born, toronto bred, and one day i'll be toronto dead
Track Name: dysphoria
binding my chest and biting my tongue
wearing boxers never fixed anyone
biking on bloor could have had me beaten
its a risk ill take i feel so defeated

dysphoria, dysphoria, dysphoria, dysphoria

and this is the last time
ill allow my ribs to be swollen
and ill grow out my hair
and pretend i dont care
and maybe my ribs are broken

being young and gay
is romantic and upsetting
explaining why you love someone to god, she keeps forgetting
she said 'gender is a universe and we are all stars'
and i believed her, because this planet is bigger than us
someday we'll leave her

dysphoria, dysphoria, dysphoria, dysphoria

and this is the last time
ill allow my ribs to be swollen
and ill get a lil thin but ill feel better in my skin
and baby, my ribs dont feel broken

this body's made for loving
its not a place for betting
lets run around and get all sweaty
i wanna feel myself get healthy

dysphoria's a b*tch
i wanna kick her in a ditch
its not fair to wanna itch
all of the places that don't fit

dysphoria, dysphoria
and this is the last time
ill allow my ribs to be swollen
Track Name: verklempt
i wish i never fell in love at 17
she broke my heart but she taught me how to dream
maybe i wouldnt have learned that by myself
self learnings important, i think it wouldve helped

lifes a series of moments we know cant be wasted
theres movies and music and food to be tasted
and volkswagen vans to run into while walking
and thrift stores on queen st for all that good shopping

space and the ocean
will make you feel like youre floating
gravity will surprise you, dont let it stop you from going

space and the ocean
will make you feel like youre floating
gravity will surprise you, dont let it stop you from growing

no more saying sorry for being too human
or thinking youre boring or stupid or useless
youre not like your parents, thank god you never will be
we're alive, we're trying, we're good at existing

space and the ocean
will make you feel like youre floating
gravity will surprise you, dont let it stop you from going

space and the ocean
will make you feel like youre floating
gravity will surprise you, dont let it stop you from growing
Track Name: i'm the ghost w the most, babe
nights are empty without you, im stumblin' home
streetlights and strangers, oh god im alone

im a ghost in your garden, wonderin' if your home
ive got no place to be, no better space i could roam

a mother of thousands gets busy, i know
but im the moon cactus youre dying to hold

i think its my time to leave, but a spine rips my sheet
and im left wishing i was more warm

so i knock on your door, im expecting a corpse
but youre human, you make me feel whole

'theres a ghost in my garden, i beg your pardon
youve been out here the whole night, youre cold!'

with tears in my eyes, you take me in, take me in
take me in, i start to unfold

take me in, take me in
take me in, take me in
i start to unfold

take me in, take me in
take me in, take me in
i start to unfold
Track Name: gated community (interlude)
nobody comes here by accident
look in the windows, youll see white men doing taxes and
wives in the kitchen, burning their dinners
upstairs, their daughter comes close to being a sinner
cause she loves him
shed do anything for him
but he thinks shes boring and hes fu*king her best friend
in the morning
between the bacon and eggs
lies resentment and deception because everythings fake
dadadDaDaDddadda
this gated community doesnt want you, you ruin it
dadadDaDaDddadda
this gated community doesnt want you, you ruin it
with your cigarette butts n your trash ass remarks
you hang out with your friends late at night in the park
you make us all so uncomfortable, call me wasteful and punchable
cause im not like the carbon copy of your stupid neighbourhood
dadadDaDaDddadda
this gated community doesnt want you, you ruin it
dadadDaDaDddadda
this gated community doesnt want you, you ruin it
Track Name: captain, oh captain!
of all of the islands, you were my favourite
you gave me me your sand in a jar and i saved it
when the waves hit your shore, i saw you get impatient
you sent them away, this is not a vacation

with grace, shell kill you, shell leave scratches on your bones
shell tell you what you need to hear to make you feel at home

'captain, oh captain!' i cry as hes smoking
says 'baby in rome, we must do like the romans'
im hoping the ocean will heal what is broken
captain, oh captain, please keep this boat floating
captain, oh captain, please keep this boat floating

tell me youre disappointed like itd hurt me
darling, its not the first time ive heard it
if i tell youve hurt me, you dont decide if you didnt
youll have to try harder to become a martyr

'captain, oh captain!' i cry as hes smoking
says 'baby in rome, we must do like the romans'
im hoping the ocean will heal what is broken
captain, oh captain, please keep this boat floating
captain, oh captain, please keep this boat floating
