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: attention.

Track Name: greeting
where in the world
are you?

all of this
is for you...

believe it or not,
it's for you...
Track Name: attention
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
Track Name: hedge
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"
Track Name: draw
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
Track Name: plans
she's just eleven
she's only a baby
don't look like that at her

or just turn away

this isn't love

why are you turning back now

this could be love

this is only confusing her
this is only confusing her

this isn't love
this could be love
this isn't love
this could be love

I see her curiosity
soon she will try to make new friends
but she will keep working
she's meant for more than these children
she's my girl and we've got plans

focus on your dreams kid
forget love
love is loss of control
just forget love

love
just forget love
this isn't love
this could be love
Track Name: toiler
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
Track Name: bones
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...
Track Name: clumsy
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...
Track Name: confuse
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
Track Name: pieces
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...
Track Name: poppy
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...
