Dom Cooper Whenever I'm not feeling my best or when I need to relax, I come to Kat Knapps. Her music is so soothing that is hard to be anxious while singing along with her songs. This album addresses those anxieties that growing up and being alive brings. Favorite track: Magnolia Blossoms (Coffee, Tea, or Anxiety).

Track Name: Magnolia Blossoms (Coffee, Tea, or Anxiety)
Set the stove on high, burning metal and burning questions
burn your throat on magnolia blossoms,
sit on the counter with your dirty dishes
stacked up like all your problems, you handed me a brush looking like I could solve them.

I crashed them on the floor, maybe that's how we'll win this war x2

chorus: Flowers bloom behind my teeth, and I'm drowning, drowning, drowning, drowning. Burn my throat so I can't eat I'm drowning, drowning, drowning, drowning.

I hope the writing on your car never get's washed, I swear to god I said what I meant. I hope you slit your fingers on the blades of grass, on the other side of your white picket fence. you told me about the anxiety you felt when they cut off three inches of your hair. In the meanwhile I'm not prepared to lose all my friends, and I'm scared. And I'm sorry if i'm getting too annoying, i"m stuck in my over-sized skin, from the recycle bin. You see i'm just another piece of paper, another resume, another bill to pay, another casualty. brew me another cup,
cuz it's so hard to swallow reality.

oh magnolia blossoms, what are you doing to me, I promised you that we would of won this war by now x2

Flowers bloom inside my mouth like atom bombs, it makes me feel so warm and calm.
Flowers bloom inside my lungs like atom bombs, it makes me feel so warm and calm, how could this go wrong? how could this, how could this, how could this go wrong?

Flowers bloom behind my teeth, and i'm drowning, drowning, drowning, drowning,
burn my throat so I can't eat, I'm drowning, drowning, drowning, drowning
flowers bloom behind my teeth, and I'm drowning, drowning, drowning, drowning.
maybe one day I'll wake up from this dream of drowning, drowning, drowning, drowning.
Track Name: Make Way for the New Friends
G, Em, B7, C-Cmaj7, G


dry blood on the guitar strings, patches on the dry wall
i'm sweating underneath florescent lights in my desert of a room
it's too hot to feel anything at all

make way for the new roads to my house, tires cracked away the old ones, you drove me home too much when I passed out. Can I at least offer you a cigarette?

There's a place that we can go that look's over neighborhoods, hey look our old cul-de-sac. oh how nostalgic. Remember all the things we said, wouldn't happen to us? Well, they're happening now. Why'd we have to go and open our mouths?

Make way for the new friends, no time to reminisce for remember whens. Broken glass on the train tracks, I don't want to remember another night again. Broken glass on the train tracks, I'm starting to forget your face. Broken glass on the train tracks.
Make way for the new friends

My throat hurts from screaming, I'll patch up the dry wall in the morning. I'm sweating underneath florescent lights. In my desert of a room, it's too hot to, feel anything at all.
Track Name: At Least I Don't Talk About Moving to California
They say come to our town, there's plenty of alcohol to go around. our hair is stained with bleach, and our lakes our filled with leeches. no one will listen to you if you're ever feeling down, but at least there's plenty of alcohol to go around.

last night at a party, i was drinking whiskey and bacardi. It was all the money on my paycheck so now i'm fucking starving I told you about things I think and I hope it didn't scare you. Maybe on my next paycheck instead I'll buy a pizza that I could share with you.

chorus: When I die of some liver disease, i hope that you'll remember me
when I die of some liver disease, don't you say you should of saved me.

let's dig up another corpse, we need this land for a golf course and when that get's tired this town will go and hire you, to build things we don't need so you can pay for your weed.
that sounds like a win-win situation to me.

last week at a party I was drinking whiskey and bacardi, I spilled my drinks and you spilled your heart out and all I said was sorry
you got to second base with a girl you hate, and I didn't want to sit through that, so I pitched a proposal to some guy and we went upstairs to bat.

chorus: When I die of some liver disease, i hope that you'll remember me
when I die of some liver disease, I hope that you will miss me
cuz when I die of some liver disease, don't you say you should of saved me.

we all die, so don't you try to comfort me x4
Track Name: This Year
C, G, Am, F

you closed my eyelids for the 3rd time, so I stumbled through another night. i wasn't swinging fists, it was fight or flight

straight for the punching bag, knuckles bruised and bleeding. You asked me if I was angry. Truth is I'm not, truth is i'm not mad at anyone
well maybe myself, but who can blame me?

can't remember much about it, maybe if I stopped thinking about it
this year I won't see in blackouts anymore
goodwill, you can have your chalice back

you closed my eyelids for the 3rd time, so I stumbled through another night. i wasn't swinging fists, it was fight or flight

this year I will sing to crowds instead of to my feet, and this year I'll quit being someone i'm not supposed to be. cuz this year i'm just gunna be myself, cuz this year I'm going to sing to crowds.

this year, i"m not gunna be someone else cuz, this year I'm not gunna see in blackouts.

goodwill you can have your chalice back
