    CD made of black plastic with ridges on the top, meant to look like a tiny vinyl record with a donut label in the center. Comes in a cardboard sleeve featuring psychedelic artwork by Jack Bride, inspired by Dara's dream of a blissed-out unicorn pony listening to our music in the form of a donut on a toy record player in a majestic wonderland. the back has our Donut Heart logo, designed by Rah's awesome flatmate Marion Barry. DIY printed insert with lyrics, insights, thank-yous, and love.

lyrics

Flirtaholics Anonymous
why does the world have to be so monogamous?

I am a repeat offender
long-term relationship ender
put me on a 12 step program
to wean me off forbidden romance

leaving countries to escape the
consequence of my behavior
poisoned friendships, ruined lives
now it's worse 'cause they have wives, oh!

crawling over bloody stones and severed limbs
from a series of unattainable hims
once again in a familiar battle scene
it was never my intention to be mean
ah…

Flirtaholics Anonymous
I can't ignore the purple hippopotamus
it doesn't take a clinical psychologist
to see the pattern here and tell you there's something wrong with this

casual physical contact overdone
I know that it's wrong but it is so much fun
looking into someone's eyes don't count as cheating
listen to the floor boards, hear the tell-tale beating
ah…

Flirtaholics Anonymous
it's a support group for people like all of us
I have a sponsor now, yeah, he pats me on the back
but as it turns out, we're both kinda into that!

I must be in denial
I can't wipe this smile
off my face
they're gonna put me on a trial
in a little while
and burn me at the stake!

I'm not saying I don't deserve it
look all the people I been hurtin'
not least of all myself
I know my logic is perverted
I just keep on flirting
I really should get help

Black Hawk Down or Enter Sandman
crescent moon devouring landmarks
wishing we could stretch out time
'cause in that moment you were mine!

I'm in it for the thrill of chasing
careless of the hearts I'm breaking
and the worst part is that I don't
even want what I am taking!

I know that this song won't win me many friends
but before the current situation ends
with another couple bodies in my wake
I have got to finally learn from my mistake
goodbye…
