Track Name: marcel
been bothered so long that I've forgot
what I was first bothered about
I'm heavy into real strange shit
I won't get into now
the car got hot, the windows fogged
& then the glass read out
the most beautiful
"fuck you"
I've ever seen
Please don't speak Marcel Marceau,
a better friend I'll never know.

declaring my short lived love for you
on a wall
with paint and aerosol
The world is great
The world is good
The world is shit
my hometown sucks
my hometown sucks
Please don't speak Marcel Marceau,
a better friend I'll never know.

do you remember when yr friends
thought the world was round?
The world is nothing like
we once thought it was
I thought it was the end of them
but somehow they escaped
through the air vents
do you remember when yr friends
thought that you were cool?
but then they found out the truth
Or better yet, remember when
all that shit would matter
and how it should never matter again
Track Name: super
we left our
shaving bits in the sink
all the signs read no feeding friends
dead or otherwise in crooked dreams
It's like the
The whole things broken
gathered shoelace at doors
We've all got nowhere to be

let's just keep each other company in silence
we've all got pistols in our pockets packed with kindness
they wanna keep the lights on smile up inside her
this endless stream of thoughts is grinding my head to a fine, fine paste
Still we've got nowhere to be

All in due time
The whole things broken

days posed as shitty rhetorical questions
well told lies that don't need to be said
We've all got nowhere to be

I believe in the super volcano
Track Name: changeling
although our long awaited flight has not come yet
we'll spend our night among yr dads half cigarettes
how do you paint
such a changeling
a changeling

I never thought the car would flip
I never thought we'd sink so
violently

how do you paint
such a changeling
Track Name: voyeur
hoarding little paper fortunes
I found that note
that you wrote to yourself
The floor eats
up yr lifeless clothing
you know those ghosts
are watching you undress
but I Won't
let you become one of them

drawing so many perfect people
who don't look like me
sometimes life works in the
clearest of ways
drawing breath before the door opens
but there's nobody home
always alone in the end
Don't let me become one of them

I'm leaving slow
I'll push you on
Don't go
Track Name: in Vestal
in Vestal
with raincoats
stay here join republican parties
you know I won't

in greyscale
& left out
stay here leave me wondering who I am
you know I won't

in Vestal
yr safe and sound
Track Name: kissing through yr teeth
I wanna dive deep into something
that I can't ignore anymore
wanna be with her in the worst way
but half of me is doing this for her sake
fell asleep standing up hearing water running

Look me in the eye
as you respond to stimuli
I feel so close to my neighbors now
fell asleep standing up hearing water running
she's so sweet
like a nosebleed from an enemy hangs
This room's just a sucked in stomach

Look me in the eye
as you respond to stimuli
I feel so close to my neighbors now
fell asleep standing up hearing water running
she's so sweet
like a nosebleed from an enemy hangs
This room's just a sucked in stomach
Track Name: friend of a Friend
[decades old soap, Lie on the floor
I hope I spend what's left of my youth
angry
But for good reason]
Track Name: h.w.k.i.h.s.
don't give yourself the option of death
in building this
the object is nothingness
A station wagons false wood facade
Is what the televisions got
so Turn the knob
my leg won't stop jumping

smile twice and sprawl out in gauze
I kick rocks with other spare parts
when I grow up
I want to play god

a man drives by and howls "Mengele!"
I'm doing this for all of us
Leave me here
Knowing there's
Nothing there

smile twice and sprawl out in gauze
I kick rocks with other spare parts
but when I grow up
I want to play god
