    **UPDATE 4/18/2017** Tapes have arrived! They will be shipping out in batches over the next several weeks. An email with more details has been sent out to all who placed an order. If you have questions, please email: cercehc at gmail dot com.

    These will be made on a limited basis of how many are ordered and that's it. Pre-orders will be up from now through March 7th 2017 and if you miss it, you miss it. Professionally duplicated on pink tapes. 100% of proceeds will be donated to Planned Parenthood.

    It is "name your price" so any amount of $$ will be donated directly to Planned Parenthood.

    The tape duplication order will be placed on March 8th based on how many orders received and shipping will begin whenever we get the tapes in hand (presumably at the end of March or beginning of April).

    Price is reflective of Bandcamp's massive 10% sales cut on physical merchandise. We also apologize for the expensive international shipping.

Track Name: Weary
I’m a pile of bones,
Empty and disposable
Don’t you dare fucking tell me I’m too pretty
Tell me about your fear of loss
Right before walking out
I’m still bare, I’m still bare
I’m still bare, I’m still bare
Ribs exposed and all
Sleeping endlessly so I can put this body to rest
Let me put this body to rest

Indecisive, fucking liar
I’m Disposable
Disposable

Let me put this body to rest,
Let me put this body to rest
Let me put this body to rest…

If I’m not lying in my bed made a coffin,
I’m just a ghost in my own city

Disposable, disposable
Track Name: Choices
I’m a strong kind of weak
The pins keep pushing farther in,
Pushing through pale skin,
Puncturing my red heart
Cause I chose you to move in closer
Closer than any other hypnotized soul
I chose you to hurt me

Oh the privilege I have
It’s a damn curse we can’t escape,
A curse we can’t win,
It’s a damn curse
The thought of trying to hold on hurts,
The thought of losing that heart hurts
Oh the terror of loss
Oh the terror of loss

Puncturing my red heart

I chose you to hurt me
I chose you to break me
I chose you to hurt me
Track Name: Concussion
It took a knock out for me to find,
I’m not as strong as I thought
Prince I had none
Prince I had none
But here we go,

Weak body, damaged brain, and a new mentality
A new mentality

Move along cause I’ll find a better recovery,
A stronger medicine,
A worthier drug
Oh a better drug
Give me a better drug
Drug me
I’m dependent; I’m dependent
Can’t function on my own
Track Name: Libel
You’re all talking,
But not saying much
Telling stories never true
And words never said

Off with her pompous head
Strive to be a lady
I’m too numb to even hearken
Track Name: Fornication
Go ahead,
Tell me I’ll never be loved
Doesn’t even matter what devil words you beat me down with
Cause I’ve got it all together now
Someone’s heart is beating against mine
And I can feel something other than pain
Congrats to us,
To the prince and I
My insecurities, my secret, my ball and chain finally drowning in our sweat
I’ll never be sewn up again
I’ll never be sewn up again
Track Name: D.I.D.
Throw your money down
Can't buy your empty kid everything
Can't buy yourself a damn heart
Can't buy a bloody beating heart
Track Name: Direct Tribute I
Panicked and ran
My dented heart can forgive,
But you can't hide again
There's too many knights ready to break your bones
I'll drag you home and watch you bleed,
Drag you out the coffin where you rest,
Drag your blinded eyes and blackened brain
As long as I feel those bones,
My prince doesn't need a reflection
Track Name: Direct Tribute II
(Let me feel your bones, go ahead and make me sore, make hurt, make me scream, shaking, ohohhh, I'm shaking, let me feel your bones, my heart's pumping blood, let me feel your bones, my heart's pumping blood, make me sore, my heart's pumping blood, my heart's pumping blood)

Poison apple in hand, tell me who's the fairest
Track Name: Damaged Goods
I could claim to have learned from my mistakes

Trust me, I’ve made plenty

But I’m left corrupt

Expectations and hope dispatched

Expectations and hope dispatched

I’ll fight back this time

If your intoxicated body pushes

I’ll be good, I swear

Anything you want

There when you’re slipping, not that you could break

You’re my recovery and I’m determined

But I dream of being your virgin

I dream of being pure with an unbarred heart

(Cause that I’m not)

I’ll fight back this time

If your intoxicated body pushes

If you strip me bare with lies

Does that mean I’ve learned or simply made damaged?

Or simply made damaged?
Track Name: Intrusions
This is my experience,

You can’t demand a part

We have nothing in common

And there’s nothing for me to admire you for

You’ve seen one piece

You know nothing

This is not all of me

And you’ll never get to know all

This is my experience

You can’t demand my part

With your presets and molds of what I am

Tell me who you think I am

Tell me who you think I am

Tell me what the fuck I am

Tell me what the fuck I’ve become

Tell me who you think I am

Tell me who the fuck I am

I swear I’m human
Track Name: Blossom
'Cause this is how you raised me

To be any combination I choose,

To have both tastes in me,

To have both tastes

An underlying wit that doesn’t need to be understood

And the bravery and heart to fight it all

The bravery and heart to fight it all

Everything I wanted to be

Everything I thought I could be

Those who only saw brutality

Never understood a modern doll idol

I’m still the same, I haven’t changed a bit

And we all know I never will
Track Name: L.I.F.E.
We hold together pieces of the sun for each other, and take them home to keep. There's so much left to see. Someday I'd like to fall asleep.
Track Name: S.L.E.E.P.
He said something kind, but I couldn't pay attention.
I'm not alright, but that's okay. I'll be fine, just not today.
I'll stay inside my room, my pillow's my own best friend.
I'm not alright, but that's okay. I'll be fine, just not today.
Track Name: P.O.N.X.
Send me another suicide note,
I still hear you breathing
It's way too fucking loud, it's way too fucking loud
You're coming clean with all now that you think it's all going to hell
Mistakes were spent on you, mistakes were spent on you
You'll never be a man, you'll never be a man
You'll never grow strong, you'll never grow strong
You'll never be a man and you'll never grow strong

Drink yourself away
Oh the music we danced to
Fuck your idea of Romeo & Rebecca
Pathetic, that's what you'll always be
Cause you left me home that night and truly believed you loved me
Scream one more time
Tell me I make you insecure
You're insecure cause you should be
Insecure because you're worthless


You regret the way you treated me?
Then get the fuck out already, get the fuck out with your broken heart
Your threats are a joke
How much can we possibly blame on mommy problems?
You'll never be loved, you'll never be loved, you'll never be loved
And that's certainly what you deserve
Track Name: How to Be a Woman
I know my parts are soft as well,
But you're an embarrassment to us all
I made my deals with the devil,
But I've got it all under my belt
It's about punching for your self
It's about kicking for your goals
Fucking bat those lashes for your soul

I'm sewn up anyway,
So the blind can't get through
Can't make me bleed
Can't make me scream
"You heartless tease,"
I dare you to fuss

Oooohhhhhh (I made my deals with the devil)
Track Name: Love, Alaska Young
Get me out of this labyrinth
Suffer, suffer, suffer
"God oh God, I'm so sorry."
There has to be an answer out
Read another word, have a smoke, take a sip
Oh Strawberry Hill you taste so sweet
Pour the pink wine, pour the pink wine, pour the pink wine
"How many times can I fuck up?"
"Aneurysm. Worst day. I win. You drink."
"HELP ME GET OUT OF HERE"

Oh I see it now, I can see the light
"I want to go too! I want to go too!"
Your little hurricane's done
Straight and fast, straight and fast
Straight and fast, straight and fast
Straight and fast
Straight and fast
Straight and fast

Spread the white flowers over my grave
Like mother raised me to love
But, "Don't ever let them see me dead, Daddy"
"You shall love your crooked neighbor with your crooked heart"
I see where to forgive now
"...just a little girl terrified into paralysis, [she] collapsed into the enigma of herself"
Keep looking for my ghost
You'll find me where the sea breaks
Track Name: Something About a Broken Heart
I can't find you on a single page.
I have no idea what's real.
When the world ceases to exist,
Save the inches between our eyes.
Track Name: D.I.D. (Split Version)
Throw your money down
Can't buy your empty kid everything
Can't buy yourself a damn heart
Can't buy a bloody beating heart
Track Name: Direct Tribute I (Split Version)
Panicked and ran
My dented heart can forgive,
But you can't hide again
There's too many knights ready to break your bones
I'll drag you home and watch you bleed,
Drag you out the coffin where you rest,
Drag your blinded eyes and blackened brain
As long as I feel those bones,
My prince doesn't need a reflection
Track Name: Direct Tribute II (Split Version)
(Let me feel your bones, go ahead and make me sore, make hurt, make me scream, shaking, ohohhh, I'm shaking, let me feel your bones, my heart's pumping blood, let me feel your bones, my heart's pumping blood, make me sore, my heart's pumping blood, my heart's pumping blood)

Poison apple in hand, tell me who's the fairest
