Track Name: Hot Dyke Island
Take me to the island with the toughest girls
With the cutest butches in the whole wide world
With the glitter shores and the salty air
Will you be the one to take me there

Hot Dyke island
Here I come (I want it)
Hot Dyke Island
In the Sun (I want it)
Hot Dyke Island
Make me cum (I want it)
Hot Dyke Island
So much fun (I want it)

Take me to the island with no binary
Where patriarchy's just a memory
Everything's fluid and nothing's square
Will you be the one to take me there

Come with me Baby
Come with me Baby

Take me to the island where we're wild and free
Where no one's policing femininity
Queer Republic of Love and Care
Will you be the one to take me there

Bull danger stud femme dom daddy
Faggot homo unicorn twink dandy
Gender queer pansy punk stone butch bear
Will you be the one to take me there
Track Name: Khybie
This is for the nights we felt we owned you
We were dancing, dancing in a half empty room
We made do with what we had access to
We were dancing, dancing in a half empty room

Come together
Pals forever
But we outlast all the wall in this town
No we can't last, just get outta this town

This is for the nights we tried to fight it
It was taken, taken away from us
It's harsh to see what it means to me
When it's taken, take away from us

Come together
Resist forever
But was can't save all the walls in this town
Though we still try, don't tear it down

This is for the nights we started over
We were searching, searching for something new
Once again can feel we have something real
We were searching, searching for something new

Come together
Stay forever
Though we still rent all the wall in this town
Gotta fight like hell to stay in this town

I wanna dance with you
Any room will do
I wanna dance with you
let's start something new
Track Name: Fuck Everything
I don't want any of this but here it is
I don't want any of this but here it is

They say November comes in with a crash and goes out crying
they also say when it rains it pours well baby it's god damn pouring friends piles up in puddles it's the only thing we do
you'll hold me while I hold you and try to hold on too

FUCK EVERYTHING
but it kept coming
FUCK EVERYTHING
under a tidal wave
FUCK EVERYTHING
crushed on the inside
FUCK EVERYTHING
floating away

Everything hard hit at once and then it just kept coming
Like a giant tidal wave of destruction and self destruction
Swept under by the current, treading water on good days
if you've been around the last few weeks you've heard me say

Capitalism's material conditions, garden variety depression
was stretched to thin then stretched some more til I felt total flattened
now things that once came easy are completely beyond my power
convalesce in this here bed until the madness passes
Track Name: Dirty Lifesaver
Nasty little party dress
Perfect face all a mess
you can't have me anyway
poison flowers on your grave

Rotten, rotten to the core
Til there's no core no more
I told you to stay away
poison flowers on your grave

Sugar sweet don't talk to me
I'll candy coat your insides
Thick perfume, endless doom
I'll rot you from the inside

Toxic apple just for me
Pluck you from your family tree
This is not your game to play
poison flowers on your grave

Blood and guts, tattered lace
Dirty world, all a waste
you should run, run away
poison flowers on your grave
Track Name: Bag of Dicks
Gonna burn it down blame it on you

Take back what you stole
Leave you ruined all alone

You're a bag of dicks, we're coming for you
Track Name: Winter Feelings
I keep my head up
I keep my shoulders back
don't let my guard down
how do you watch your back?

I keep my eyes sharp
staring at the sky
please keep my heart safe
I cannot let this die

I keep my head down
hands busy with work
just keep on moving
how do you build self-worth?

I keep my jaw clenched
I keep my belly full
I'm trying to give up
harms that make pain dull

self care self preservation
I swear I can stay grounded
if we're in this together
tell me we're not too volatile for one another

I make my skin thick
I keep out the cold
please help me carry
what I cannot hold

I keep my mind clear
my thoughts float away
I keep it going
for another day

I take a deep breath
I count down from 10
I keep my head up
til it happens again

I keep my friends close
good people around
I'm keeping both feet
firmly on the ground

self care self preservation
I swear I can stay grounded
if we're in this together
tell me we're not too volatile for one another

winter feelings keep me dizzy
all I wanna know is we're not alone
winter feelings keep me dizzy
all I wanna see: mutuality
