Track Name: Stacking Pistachios
Give a little inch and baby, he'd take a mile
I'd try to put my two cents in
And he'd reach in for the whole damn dollar
I don't want to make you cry
But I'm okay with a short goodbye
Stop pretending everything is fine

You push and pull and push some more
And I don't want to see you anymore
I think about how long I stayed
With the hope that you would change
You push and pull and I might break
You won't give up if there's something you can take

Get a little wiser, honey
Please step aside
Some day you're gonna call
You'll be back and I'll be gone
Track Name: Ovary Acting
I had to take the Polaroid down from over my bed
Because every time I see it I'm reminded of all that's dead
You're making this look easy and I'm trying to figure out how
We used to be best friends but we don't even talk now

I'm trying not to be bitter
And I don't wanna call, I don't wanna call you a quitter
But if one plus one is two
I fought to the bone to see us through
And if two plus two makes four
You walked out the door

My friends think I'm giving up caffeine
But really I'm trying to kick all our memories
My friends think I'm giving up caffeine
But it's been harder than I thought it'd be
I hope it wasn't easy to give up on me

I'm trying not to be bitter
And I don't wanna call, I don't wanna call you a quitter
But if one plus one is two
I fought to the bone to see us through
And if two plus two makes four
You walked out the door

I had to take the Polaroid down from over my bed
I had to take the Polaroid down
Track Name: James
And really do we pray when we say, "I'm gonna pray for you" to the ones we love?
Do we find the time to ask God what He wants from us or do we go our own way?

If we took the time to listen to anyone but ourselves I think we'd know which way to go
If you look at your reflection then quickly turn away and forget your face, you're like a wave
Flowers fall and beauty fades

And when you die you can't take your money with you in the next life
But we keep treasures all these treasures measure up to nothing more than self-indulgence and self-importance

If we took the time to listen to anyone but ourselves we'd see we're wrong
And it's hard to know you're wrong
But if you look at your reflection then quickly turn away and forget your face, you're like a wave
Flowers fall and beauty fades

We need to be quick to hear each other's words
Kill the poison on our tongues
And quench our angry thirst
Don't wait until tomorrow to put away your dirty cloth
Tomorrow could be never
For all you know you could be gone

And if I think I have the answers, I'd better think again
Because my friend has got a splinter but I've got wooden hands
The only thing I know for certain is that one day I'll be dead
And I want you to know me by the way I've loved

They'll know us by our Love
