LYRICS
Reset
I've got my work cut out 'cause these fifteen minutes won't squash the doubt. You're stuck inside my head. There's a loop repeating all you said. Why should I care what anybody thinks? I've done all I can there's nothing left to see here, so we'll throw expectations aside and then start it all over. Someone hit the reset. I don't care what he said, no. Nothing ever mattered before. I could always ignore all the things I don't wanna know. Someone hit the reset. I don't care what she said, no. I can say whatever I feel just as long as it's real. No rewards for crying out loud. I wrecked myself today. I fall to pieces as I turn the page. Like I'm beside myself pointing fingers at this empty shell.
Beach Boy
Some say a genius, California dreaming in the sun. He'll never make it. The odds are a gazillion to one. Overcame adversity and taught the world to sing along. Then he stayed in bed for three years. Now the feeling is gone from a beautiful song that's a permanent part of my head. When they prop you on stage put a smile on your face and pretend you're a beach boy again. Inebriated, Landy made your decisions for you. Exploited your illness, write a song for a bucket of food. When I needed inspiration you were always there for me. Now I have to change the station. Overcame adversity and taught the world to sing along in a three part harmony.
Don't Make Me Show You
I'll be gone when the morning time arrives. By the time you shut your eyes I'll be dreaming up my plan. How could he do this to me you would say, then you'd call me every day and tell me that you want me back. That's what I want you to do. Reach in and tear out your heart. Then give it to me one more time. Little one, you're an easy target for me to victimize you more. Now is my time for revenge, I'll return all the hurt been done to me. All wrapped up for you to keep in your hope chest by your bed. That's how I want it to be. Reach in and tear out your heart. Then give it to me one more time. Baby, obey me. Don't bring up my past. After the first time you swore it's the last. Don't make me do something that you'll regret. Don't make me show you I care.
