Lyrics

Tabula Rasa

Written By: Sara Hulse

Tabula Rasa away. In full daylight when he took her to that place. Nothing special to remember,
except the crack in the ceiling by the door.
A little dirt never hurt anyone,nor the grime on the bathroom floor. But she couldn't see anything
but the crack in the ceiling by the door.

And oh, it's so cold. Oh, Oh, it's so cold. Oh, oh, it's so cold where he takes you. Oh, oh, oh, oh

She took a shower at home as hot as the water would go. Told herself it was over but then she
couldn't sleep anymore...and with all the people in the room, she still felt all alone. She took
a walk in the moonlight to a place that she called all her own.

And some nights she slept with one eye open. It's so hard for her to breath when places feel
closed in. She only ever feels safe when she's alone out in space. It's so hard to trust somebody
just by lookin at their face.

She never gets back what's been taken, but at least she still sings.
And she almost never even thinks about the crack in the ceiling by the door.
Tabula Rasa away. The seed that's planted's what you see.
But she's beautiful anyway and much stronger than he'll ever hope to be.

But oh, it's still cold. Oh, oh, it's so cold. Oh, Oh, it's so cold when he takes you. Oh, oh, oh, oh

Infinity

Written By: Sara Hulse

Oh, Oh, we'll all be together, assuming time goes on forever.
Baby, when I sing these lines I'm livin' the life,
I'm jammin' all night singing'oh, Oh
Freedom's what you make it, and baby I'm so good at faking it.
I am the master of escaping it.

I don't want to play their game anymore.
Pounding, I've found I'm on the inside door.
It's not locked to the world they can come on in
and take an inventory while they wait to begin.
Maybe, baby, I don't want to be boxed in.
Spread my wings out wide and get caught by the wind.
I want to get on that merry prankster bus again
with the beatnik hippies and all my friends singin'

I don't want to play their game anymore.
See me puking out words on God's bathroom floor.
Well, I am only a girl but I'm a flame burning in this infinity, we are always learning.
They say it was a very different time back then,
but there's no begining and there's no end.
I'm on the now trip baby and that's my thing.
I don't really care what you want me to sing.
I don't really care what you want me to sing.
I don't really care what they tell me to think.
I am just a bird getting caught by the wind.
I am just a girl getting deep in it.
I don't really care if I am not what I seem.
I don't really care if I ever get my drink.
I am just a girl getting lost in it.
I don't really care what you want me to sing.
