Library card



At the tender age of seven
I begged my parents to buy
Me my own library card
I wanted books that'd keep me up all night
And they became my kryptonite
Instead of people, 'cause talking was hard
 
I'd bring my books with me to lunch
So that I didn't have to run
'Cause the pages built a temporary shield
From the forces that rejected me
Those who'd never protected me
And for a while it all just seemed so real
 
Yeah, things were great
Things were fine
But the magic had to run out sometime
 
So here I am at twenty-one
My life has finally begun
I can't seem to find my way
To the next chapter
I'll accept these parts of me
Paper cuts along these jagged sheets
With no happily ever after now
(Ever after now)
 
So when the time came up for
Me to finally fall in love
I set my expectations way too high
It turns out I was no protagonist
Boys weren't a fan of this
And so I slowly learned that I should hide
 
From the reality consuming me
That I'd never be like the
Girls that they'd write
 
So here I am at twenty-one
Life has finally begun
I can't seem to find my way
To the next chapter
I'll accept this part of me
Phoning in the hope of fantasy
With no happily ever after now
(Now)
 
Happy endings overrated
I'm more used to getting hurt
Forgive me if I'd rather stay in
My own little universe
 
Happy endings overrated
I'm more used to getting hurt
Forgive me if I'd rather stay in
My own little universe
 
The dreams are gone, the wishes faded
I knew this could never work
Forgive me if I'd rather stay in
My own little universe
 
The dreams are gone, the wishes faded
I knew this could never work
Forgive me if I'd rather stay in
My own little universe
 
So here I am at twenty-one
Life has finally begun
Then why do I still feel
Like such a damn disaster
 
I'll accept this part of me
Poorly adapted literary freak
With no happily ever after now
(Now, n- now)
No ever after now
(n- now)
No ever after now
(n- now)
I don't even know what the book's about

Machine learning



Don't stare at them for too long
Laugh some, but not too much
And sing the words to that song
But only the chorus
If someone says they want you
Don't flinch, just let them touch
It doesn't really matter what you want
 
I know you wanna be yourself
Like everyone else
But you've always needed help
 
Memorize the manual
You're hopeless on your own
If you make it look natural
Then nobody will know
The story of the robot
Who knows they'll never be
More than a machine learning how to please
 
Make social calculations
Know when you're supposed to cry
Fake real communication
Rehearse your scripted lines
Is living a performance?
Depends how it's defined
Forget that all your friends don't have to try
 
I know you wanna be yourself
Like everyone else
But that's not where you excel
 
Memorize the manual
You're hopeless on your own
(hopeless on your own)
If you make it look natural
Then nobody will know
The story of the robot
Who knows they'll never be
More than a machine learning how to please
 
Be just what they expected
Don't come as a surprise
(don't come as a surprise)
They might take you for granted
That's just a part of life
If you stick with the program
Maybe one day you'll be
More than a machine learning how to please
 
I know you wanna be yourself, oh
I know you wanna be yourself,
Like everyone else
If you stick with the program
Maybe one day you'll be
More than a machine learning how to please
 
Just memorize the manual
You're hopeless on your own
If you make it look natural
Then nobody will know
The story of the robot
Who had a secret dream
To be more than a machine, more than a machine

Prophecies



When you were my age
You gave up your world
Already married, raising a girl
Clinging to pages that never unfurled
It must have been a whirlwind
 
You kept yourself drunk on childhood dreams
They tore at your heart, you tore at the seams
And when I grew up, you passed 'em to me
But I don't know how to hold 'em
 
Broken prophecies you carried overseas
To give me the life that you knew you couldn't lead
I know I'm not the girl that you thought I'd be
But even if you can't believe it
 
Everything I do, I do it for you
All your prophecies, they came true
I'm living in the world you wanted me to
Even if it doesn't look that way to you
 
Everything I do, I do it for you
You gave it all up, so I don't have to
I'll take your sacrifice and make it brand new
I promise everything I do,
I do it for you
I do it for you
 
I cut off my hair and colored my clothes
Dabbled in boys, I wasn't supposed to
All of the things you always opposed
And I still turned out okay
 
'Cause I built my life for no one but me
Hoping one day, you'll finally see
I learned through your eyes what it means to be free
Turns out there's more than one way
 
Broken prophecies of what my life could be
I'ma see 'em through, just a little differently
I know it's hard for you to put your trust in me
But even if you can't believe it
 
Everything I do, I do it for you
All your prophecies, they came true
I'm living in the world you wanted me to
Even if it doesn't look that way to you
(Even if it doesn't look that way to you)
 
Everything I do, I do it for you
You gave it all up, so I don't have to
I'll take your sacrifice and make it brand new
I promise everything I do,
I do it for you
I do it for you
 
Look at what we did
Look how far we came
You stood half a lifetime in the face of shame
Teaching me to take pride in my name
So I wouldn't have to do the same
 
Look at all the mountains
Mountains that we climbed
You stayed on the ground so I could touch the sky
Every time your voice fell to the side
They'll hear it when they're listening to mine
 
So, all the prophecies you carried overseas
I'll keep them alive as long as they are mine to keep
And when my time has come to raise a family
I'll let them choose how to read it

Two roads



I came across a forest of unfamiliar trees
And a path beyond the fork is, is calling out to me
I wouldn't dare
I wouldn't dare
 
There is magic in this moment, the rustling of the leaves
Do I give into the warning, give up stability?
I wouldn't dare
I wouldn't dare
 
But what if it is everything I wanted?
(But what if it is everything I wanted)
Everything I said I didn't need
(Everything I said I didn't need)
When I convinced myself of paradise from paintings
I'm better off because I never bleed
 
Two roads
(two roads)
Oh, and I don't know the way
No, I don't, I don't know the way
Past the unknown
If nothing else would change
No, if you promised nothing'd change
Then I would take the one less traveled by
 
Why have I been fearing
An aching that will fade?
Must the sun have reason
To make the seasons change?
I wouldn't dare
I wouldn't dare
 
'Cause I've built my life around
The thought of landmines in the ground
Terrified to take a step
Even more to make a sound
But now I am there
So send me a prayer
 
For everything I said I never wanted
When I tried to make myself believe
That I could pirate paradise from paintings
I look ahead now, all that I can see
 
Two roads
(two roads)
And I don't know the way
No, I don't, I don't know the way
Past the unknown
If nothing else would change
No, if you promised nothing'd change
Oh, I'll keep the first for another day
But knowing way leads on to way
 
I'm never looking back
No, I'm never looking back
Prayed into my pillowcase
Just dreaming of the sweet escape
 
I'm never looking back
No, I'm never coming back to
Two roads
 
If I don't find my way on my own
Then one day it will be too late
