The Boys 04:11
Why don't the boys paint their faces? My mother laughed and called it "war paint" Pink pepper spray on a keychain My father gave me mace for Christmas Because he loves me Why are the boys taught survival? All I got was that friendship bracelet Homework to draw a pretty tiger I quit the Girl Scouts from that assignment Because I love me Why aren't the boys praised for sweetness? The king of the pack is praised for conquests Owning another woman's body Grabbing the knife to add his notches 'Cause he doesn't love her And we were taught to walk with keys laced in our fingers Cross the street if we see any stranger Kick the knees if we've been overtaken Elbowing our way to being safer The senator stared at his shoelaces Cornered inside the elevator Forced into witnessing her heartbreak I guess it's time for the investigator 'Cause he loves his daughter 'Cause he loves his daughter 'Cause he loves one of us

Vapor 05:20
I got used to a certain tremor All down my spine And the hazy form of love That I've come to know I got used to a certain lover All down my spine And the hazy dreams of love We might come to know Where is your heart? Where is your heart? Ain't nothin comin out your mouth but vapor Ain't nothin comin out your mouth but vapor Oh, the fog that you're in has filled your hollow lungs And the words from your heart can't find their way back out Lay down on your soul, nestled in their winter robes And hope for the spring to thaw I got used to a certain tremor All down my spine

The Choir 04:45
Send me all your secrets I'll send you my open ears Lift me up from the everyday rhythms Take me to your country I'll bring with me my open heart Lift your voice through the chaos and clatter Wade into the waves of the stereo-- This is my sanctuary and we are the choir We are the choir We are the choir We are the choir Welcome to my country I'll give you my softest eyes Leave the weight of this immense existence We are the choir We are the choir We are the choir

Crucible 06:16
Down through the waves, and the sun oscillates Spreading its arms open wide Sunken, encased in velvet and lace Crucible beckoning bright Down through the waves, let the current erase Traces of urges to hide No more will I hide No more will I hide No more will I hide Down through the waves, let the current erase Traces of urges to hide
