Track Name: Fire Starter
Let’s seal all the exits
To prove that we mean it
To show that we’re brave enough
To finally face the danger

Let’s gather the kindling
And strike up the matches
We’ve finally got the tinder
To get this fire started

Let’s stoke up the fire
Until the coals are glowing
Commit to the moment
And dance across the embers
Dance across the embers
Dance across the embers
Track Name: Pretty Boy
You never bothered to see me for what I am
You never saw me as anything more than a friend

A pretty boy is gonna hold you tonight
A pretty boy is gonna love you tonight
And it’s me
Me

You didn’t take the time to look deeper than my skin
(You know what I mean. You know what.)
But tonight I predict you’re gonna fall right in
(You know what I mean. You know what.)

A pretty boy is gonna hold you tonight
A pretty boy is gonna love you tonight
And it’s me
Me

You never bothered to see me for what I am
(You know who you are. You know who.)
You never saw me as anything more than a friend
(You know who you are. You know who.)

A pretty boy is gonna hold you tonight
(A pretty boy)
A pretty boy is gonna love you tonight
And it’s me
Me
Track Name: (Goodbye to) South Carolina
South Carolina
And Tennessee
Leave them behind you
Leave them for me
A different climate
With taller trees
Come to the West Coast
And we’ll be free

Your Tuscaloosa
Your Tennessee
Your one-room-school-house
Mentality
Your North Dakota
Your “wait and see”
Your one-horse culture
Is killing me

You will leave the past behind you
Thousand miles away where it can’t find you
Nothing will be left to remind you
Nothing left to hold the ties that bind you
No more
Track Name: Truth = Consequences
And when you taste the truth
You wash it back with wine
So when it finally
Hits your bloodstream
Everything seems normal
Everything seems fine

And when the truth arrives
You claim it as your own
But it’s far too potent
Raw and sickening
Harder than anticipated
Closer to the bone

And when the truth has passed
And left you all alone
You dust yourself off
Show a brave face
Claim that you are stronger
Claim that you have grown
Track Name: Permission
When I met you in the park
You outshone all the fireflies in the dark
Without even asking
You were radiant that June
You glowed and glimmered brighter than the moon
Without even asking

It was another gorgeous day
You drew me near with your shimmer and your sway
Without even asking
It was a typical affair
You had captured all the sunlight in your hair
Without even asking

When we parted in the fall
You casually withdrew, dismissed it all
Without even asking
You turned to me and said
“Who put all those thoughts into your head?
I don’t need your permission”

She said, she said
I don’t need your permission
She said, she said
I don’t need your permission
She said, she said
I don’t need your permission
She said, she said
I don’t need your permission
