Nik Bednarcik This album plays out a wonderful story with many of the songs later being portrayed in a form of reprise. The instrumentation is creatively put together showing great talents. Giving emphasis to the right thing at the right time. Highly recommend listening to this album. Watch the movie with your imagination as you listen to the story. Favorite track: poppy.

greeting 03:19
where in the world are you? all of this is for you... believe it or not, it's for you...
2.
attention 03:16
so there was a little girl... {she was born with crooked little bones...} who's bones were crooked and curled... {a skeleton that could not wait to grow...} and oh what joy did fill her figure when their eyes would look and linger laughing with here very first breath of air upside down in a room of staring eyes she only wants attention so this precious newborn thing... she was quite demanding... and oh what joy to be looked upon laughing with here very first breath of air upside down in a room of staring eyes she just wants attention she only wants attention... she shook just like a leaf and started to glow blue if she didn't get everyone's ATTENTION

hedge 03:25
now she's 6 years old and so bored with her parents but there's a neighbor who lives only one door down as her parents sleep she's sneaking out the window to him and underneath a hedge she's outside his window looking in and when the morning comes she knocks the door and when he answers she says "hello" the neighbor smiles and says "let me take your coat" weeks and months she visits him daily she brings snacks and he pours tea and when the moment is right she says "my friend I need a new father who I do not find so dull I think it might be you" and he said "yes"

draw 03:44
what a wonderful glow in you there behind your skin your footsteps bend but your eyes stay focused and clear you can draw a crowd even when you're just stepping out so what do I owe for this privilege now little girl you own the world you own all the streets and buildings you own everybody you meet you do you have just got to see this she was once like you then she started dancing with the fire and I think you could do it too you can draw a crowd even when you're just stepping out so what do I owe for this privilege now little girl you own the world you own all the streets and buildings you own everybody you meet you do

toiler 02:48
so she toiled every day at drawing attention and countless favors and oh what joy did fill her figure when their eyes would look and linger stage lights coming on up again right at home with the glow behind her skin she's in love with attention so she learned to make thunder crack she loved them all and they loved her back and oh what joy did fill her figure when their eyes would look and linger stage lights coming on up again right at home with the glow behind her skin she's in love with attention she only wants attention she shook just like a leaf and started to glow blue if she didn't get everyone's ATTENTION
7.
bones 05:20
her bones were still crooked enough to make her whole body ache in her legs in her jaw in her ribcage there is a recurring dream that leaves her terrified and she's been cracking all her teeth up in her sleep her skin's becoming blue light once again and when she dreams it's always the same countless beds simply made the people that find them shiver and shake she has to run to tuck them in figures float down from cracks in the ceiling there above they're shaking and they're crying when she comes placing her hands on his face his body fell asleep and turned into clouds and vanished like a steam train in the distance again she goes back into her room again...
8.
clumsy 03:01
and then by accident she meets someone instead of attending he's just there he's slow and not and clumsy gracefully others bring attention he just brings... and they can't contain their laughter and cries she thinks about him when he's not by her side weeks and months she visits him daily she just brings herself and he brings his curiosity then one day he asks her if she's made up her mind and she says "you you you you" she hasn't even noticed her dreams changing or the blue that has vanished or the aching that has left her bones she's comfortable...
9.
confuse 03:03
one morning while lying there next to him half awake and asleep she lets the sadness in: 'what if he takes it all away?' will he stand in my way he will stand in my way I don't deserve him don't I deserve him I need to be the first one making moves why wont he wake the fuck up he will stand in my way will he stand in my way I don't deserve him don't I deserve him will he stand in my way he will stand in my way I don't deserve him don't I deserve

pieces 05:15
it was fine for a minute for a minute or three it was good and messy it was fun while it lasted but eventually we both knew it was over all my peace is fallen from me all my pieces falling from me take me back to where I came from long before I ever met you all the way back to the place where I began long before I ever met you all my peace is fallen from me all my pieces falling from me my pieces fall and fall and fall...
11.
poppy 02:14
things are just fine everything honestly I got every adventure that I might need all alone and by my selves I don't need all the hassles but I don't want to go to sleep my skin is getting bluer again and this dream wont leave me again my teeth are cracking up more joints are swollen got makeup hiding it they wont see I sweat it off when the stage lights hide me and I don't want to go to sleep I don't want to go to sleep go to sleep...
