I’ve got a multicolored dang denim suit And a house that’s too dirty to show you I can’t imagine what you’d say to me With nothing but a big embarrassing shirt on Watching your commercial at the Super Bowl halftime I can’t imagine what you’d want with me Do I feel a sense of wandering? Do I find discussions comforting? I watched you roll in like the fog on the foreign air I could sink into your smog, until I disappear And if I disappear, will they notice that we’ve gone off the rails? All the pretty places you know sing around me All the pretty faces will go on without me

Put the fan on low Wait for your doctor to call Someone had a big scare didn’t they? Someone gave you something you could share Phone your holy volunteer You know, your therapist on call Do you say “I wanna die every day? Just kidding, I wanna dye everything black. Oh jesus help me” (careful with your hands around me someone may think we’re in love consume my trust, take my body my everything my everything my everything) How’s your holy volunteer? (HOW’S YOUR HOLY VOLUNTEER) Guess he was human after all. (GUESS HE WAS HUMAN AFTER ALL) Did you say “I wanna die everyday?” (I WANNA DIE EVERYDAY) Just kidding I wanna dye everything black (I WANNA DYE EVERYTHING BLACK) How’s your holy volunteer? (HOW’S YOUR HOLY VOLUNTEER) I met him in the city stall (I MET HIM IN THE SHITTY STALL) Breaking down, “I Wanna die everyday” (I WANNA DIE EVERY DAY) Just kidding I wanna dye everything black (I WANNA DIE EVERY DAY)

Does it sting, in the summer, when they’re direct support for a friend’s tour that you Would have killed for? Pretend they lost your number. Now you’re trying too hard. Don’t go too far, or You’ll get what you deserve. And the colts will always run away after season. I, too, believe in leaving when there’s no one there to look. And the song will fade away for no reason. I too believe in leaving when there’s no one there to look. Cut to a forty, maybe forty-five year old man with his head in his hands. All the water pouring out is just some crocodile tears, And he’s hiding in my basement, man what a laugh. I hope I’m not like that, but the odds are I’m gonna become what I fear. And the colts will always run away after season. I, too, believe in leaving when there’s no one there to look. And the song will fade away for no reason. I too believe in leaving when there’s no one there to look.

Pull out all my terror with some exfoliation would you? I’m in need of some good news. Lately in the mirror it’s me, but with a dirty sensation, bet there’s grime in the glass I know that something’s working through pockets of confusion I don’t wanna feel nervous hanging around. Bite fingers till they’re neutered, A butt on a computer Is it the lack of purpose bringing me down? Wear your accolade like a crown Inhuman representation, I know just where you stand What’s the chances it turns to shit, the over under on it dissolving there in your hands? I’ve seen the pretty vermin! The monsters that they’re serving! I always wonder why they’re hanging around. They’re fighting with the stupor! Roll tape on the computer! Are you are who you are when the lights have gone out? I know that something’s working through pockets of confusion I don’t wanna feel nervous hanging around. Bite fingers till they’re neutered, A butt on a computer Is it the lack of purpose bringing me down?

Snaking round the neighborhood with predatory eyes Trapped between irrelevant and relevant Sleeping round so you can find a place to stay the night I could be wrong but there’s no space for a dilettante In a good world you’d have to work for the things you want Slept through your song, you played too long It makes me wish that I dreamt you up x3 You don’t exist

Vampire 01:41
Screaming Bloody Murder You’re a songwriter, but you may be good. Screaming Bloody Murder You’re a Vampire, but misunderstood. Do you wanna be alone? Like I wanna be somebody else? Descending from your throne Cuz It’s good to meet the struggling Screaming Bloody Murder You’re a songwriter (vampire!) and you’re anti-trust Screaming Bloody Murder Go and wash your hands you dirty dud A songwriter can only turn away

Poison River 04:16
Poison River in the back of my brain like a miracle All decisions pass through the path I know Couldn’t shift the route the waterways go Generational and unchangeable Poison River in the back of my brain it goes: “Could i begin to feel alone to shed this moment, I’ve been holding on too long In hopes to find illumination. Could i begin to feel alone to leave this life, it’d be alright to watch it fade And go to find some new vocation But would they even let me in?” Poison River in the back of my brain like a chemical All emissions in the sea, I see where it go Friendly faces on a telethon mention it’s terrible Act hysterical Poison River sending messages here in code: “Could i begin to feel alone the shed this moment, i’ve been holding on too long Hoping to find illumination. Could i begin to feel alone covered in stones, become a mountain. Watch the water Rise around me Watch the water rise around me. And i begin to let it in” POISON RIVER IN THE BACK OF MY BRAIN IN AMERICA…

Spirit Moves 01:44
“the spirit moves inside of you” said a teacher when you graduated school “it’s in your heart, not where you are” like a mantra, (cooly medicated) move to the party we can leave when it’s started racing to the end (what a golden miser) racing to the end (what a sympathizer) i want to see your face (and i wanna strike first) racing to the end “the spirit moves, in spite of you” as you anxiously await the peer review

No Match 03:09
I had found a dark spot on my finger. Some lonely relative harassed me with a shout. “They’ll scrape your skin down! Scoop the sin out.” I wanted to hold on for the longest time. All the things that could catch you standing in a line. If we see in the distance would it paralyze? Or would we push ourselves off down into the night like a firework? Trapped inside your hometown like an island. How many passages you’ve taken to get out That only bring you down. Pouring from your mouth the sound of crowded old disease Picked up by family I wanted to know you for the longest time Until the sun gets so bright out you can’t step outside I’ll let you in the garden, eat down to the rind. I just wanted to know you as long as you like, And you respond to me: “you’re no match for melanoma, you’ve got a bad gene. Surrender to the solar, you cancerous white thing. You stuttering Casanova, have you got it coming.”
