Track Name: Bless This Mess
You break all my pretty things, watch me cry and pick them up
I gather pieces from every room and make a shrine to show you up.
Eat my dust if you must, why did it have to be this way?
I held on for as long as my body would obey.

So bless this mess, bless this mess, bless this mess we're living in.

Why do you want to hurt me so, is it just because you can?
No one will ever know as much as you, but we know when we see a man (and we don't)
Why do you lie? The peace you seek is in those secrets that you keep
Self-control is a useful tool, I guess your mama forgot that too.

So bless this mess, bless this mess, bless this mess we're living in.
Track Name: Admit Defeat
You're taking it hard 'cause you didn't receive
The love that you felt you deserved to receive.
It's a shock when your usual ways to get by
Don't work anymore, tell the world you concede.

There's a clock that lives in my head, in my heart
It loves to tell the time when things fell apart.
Just in case I forget all about it
It gets louder and louder, closer, clearer
It goes tick-a-tick-a-toctoc listen to me
So I go take a walk walk walk to the beat
On any other day I might win at ignoring it
But as for this day I'll just admit defeat.
