Track Name: Giddit
Just feel the song
Yeah, quit thinking of your awkward limbs
and left feet on the floor
Well you’ve lived a long while,
so haven’t you learned to flail without concern?
Like one of those times when you’re cleaning at home
A song gets inside and grabs your waist down low
You’re captured by the groove
when you know there’s no one around to see

Go, go on and get that
Just lose control

You dig this song,
but you’re worried ‘bout your gyrating hips
and the looks they gather
Well you’ve lived a long while, so haven’t you learned
you can survive uncovered?
Like one of those times when you’re in the car
A song gets inside and lifts your voice to a roar
You turn to the side and you soon discover
you have an audience next door

Go on and get that
Just lose control
Like when you’re all alone, when you’re not so composed
Now you’re not all alone, so you’re so self-composed

It’s just a matter of time ‘till you’re out on the floor
Let the song inside
and get that feeling of being captured by the groove
even though there are people around to see

Go, go on and get that
Just lose control
Like when you’re all alone
Track Name: Honesty
We once were inseparable
I counseled you through the end-all
But now we’re being made into dust
‘cause I don’t bite my tongue around you enough
So, it’s time for a change

Oooh, my honesty honestly doesn’t do much for me
Oooh, it’s taking away, it’s taking away from you and me
Oooh, my honesty honestly doesn’t do much for you
Oooh, So, I’m taking it away

I know I get too involved
But it’s so hard to sit and witness you fall
So now I’m trading opinions that you ignore
for something more functional
But we got this far, how’d we get this far?
Though, I guess it’s not “we”
What’d you do this for, what’re you doin this for?
I’m only asking (but judging silently)

Oooh, my honesty honestly doesn’t do much for me
Oooh, it’s taking away, it’s taking away from you and me
Oooh, my honesty honestly doesn’t do much for you
Oooh, So, I’m taking it away

But words never said for too long mean too much
Track Name: Not About That
I gave a good try to make you stay
You never denied our inconsistencies
But I’m a girl who won’t believe a thing’s a bird
until I flick its wings
But this is not about that
it’s not about my loss, it’s about my gain

Since you escaped
I’ve been forging a brand new euphoric state
It feels like going home and you can’t take me back
But this is not about that
it’s not about your loss

You never wanted someone like me
and now I wonder why I endured your critique
‘cause I have learned I’m just as pleased without coupling
and I find revelry in having my time every day
just being my time to spend my way
After a long time tethered to you it’s a relief to swing free

Since you escaped
I’ve been forging a brand new euphoric state
It feels like coming home and you can’t take me back

This is not about you
it’s not about your loss, it’s about my gain
Track Name: To Be One
I want to keep you close
and let everything you’ve got creep inside
I could be your host
where all of your fears and hopes reside
I’ve got a gift to use
my brain mirrors much better than you
So I can just lose myself in you, be a tangled two
I can’t be near you without being you

Hold tight, it’ll be fine, just try to hold up their load
By now I’ve lived many lives but none of my own
I can’t be near you ‘cause I’m trying to be one

I can’t get too close
‘cause everyone else just creeps inside
I can’t be the host for you or anyone else’s pain to hide
I’ve got a curse to lose
my brain mirrors much better than you
So I have to choose to be a recluse or entangle with you
I can’t be near you without being you

Hold tight, it’ll be fine, just try to hold up their load
By now I’ve lived many lives but none of my own
I can’t be near you ‘cause I’m trying to be one

I know I don’t even ask, “how are you?”
But don’t you know I’m always feeling it for you?
I know you don’t believe me,
but when you’re saying nothing I’m already hearing it
For tonight I could try to listen
despite the intrusion of watching you chew your cud

I want to keep you close,
but everyone else just creeps inside
I can’t be the host
for you or anyone else’s pain to hide
I’ve got a good excuse
my brain mirrors much better than you
But I can refuse to be a recluse
or entangled with you

Hold tight, it’ll be fine, just try to hold up their load
By now I’ve lived many lives but none of my own
