venus in gemini
Track Name: balikbayan
balik bayan

when u gonna come back home?
I'm waiting here across that ocean, oh
mind is on the island comes and goes
call me long distance on the telephone

when u gonna come back home?
work so hard but the money's all gone
light skinned baby on your back is gettin grown
I'm sending you a box and I'll tell you when I know

wire some money
put me on a plane
don't wanna be buried in the USA
wire some money
put me on a plane
spread my ashes screamin on that blue ocean
Track Name: don't
don't push me back again
don't call me that, its not my name,
don't push on me with ur tongue with ur fingers or your pen
don't push me back again..

you know it's weighing on my mind,
i talk about it all the time
it keeps its silence crystal clear
but i walk without regret or fear
in the spaces that you used to take
the lonely hours that pass the days
go by
Track Name: da#a swap
i decided i didn't need u anymore
when i spoke with an angel for two days
and she asked me
what are you doing here?
and so I answered honestly
that I was afraid

and where u stand
i could be thinking bout this
but i'm too self-aware
for loneliness
so i stay on the run
could u follow me there?
and i could hold on
if the answer is yes...
if the answer is yes...

i just wanna try one guess
