Track Name: graspin' at straws
im sitting on my bed and suddenly
a light shines through my window
and your hand is on my back
but i was sure i was alone
and everything is falling
all around me and
i can taste the blood already
and before i know it
im on my feet and im running
to the place my body likes to take me
when im crying for you, half-asleep
im damp and panting, there's water everywhere
the sky is opening. something's happened
and somewhere a goddess is weeping
for her lost and forgotten race but
meanwhile im collapsed in the middle of the train tracks and the tears are running down my face
goodbye, goodbye, goodbye
oh, it never really mattered to me- much- anyways, (x3)
Track Name: doggy eyeballs (prod. by brewster durbin)
when my eyes get heavy at the end of the day
all that i can think about's your stupid face
the way we talk and smile like we've been friends for a while longer than we have
i like your pots and your pans, i like your sweaty hands
(and i want them all over me)
so please, darling, listen closely
it's like i've died a million times and now i'm finally waking up
let's go on adventure to find the holy grail, we'll drink the wine from that sacred cup and then get DRUNK
on the constructive interference of the wavelengths that are projecting from the beats of our hearts
(la da da da, la da da da da)
in only less than a week, you had me head over feet
i never knew that i could sigh a sigh that was happy
your sense of humor has me questioning what i ever thought was funny
and if i seem inquisitive, don't feel inhibited
i'm driven by a hunger to know everything about you
it's like i've died a million times and now i'm finally waking up
let's go on adventure to find the holy grail, we'll drink the wine from that sacred cup and then get DRUNK
on the constructive interference of the wavelengths that are projecting from the beats of our hearts
(la da da da, la da da da da
la da da da. la da da da. la da da da da, da da da da da
da da da da, da da da da, da da da da, da da da da
daaaaa da da da dummmmm.)
Track Name: empyu (feat. ian english)
my soul shrinks down and then implodes and expands, stretching arms deep into my spine
they reach for trembling tree branches quivering from the coldness inside of me
feelings drop from a hole in my pocket as i walk down the road
they clink to the ground, and this world has stolen the blithe curiosity that i once had found
and it wasn't like a clap of thunder.
it wasn't like a lightning storm.
there wasn't any build.
there wasn't any warning.
like a flame, snuffed from a candle,
i suddenly was empty.
Track Name: the vampire song
and you'll never drive your stake into this stony heart of mine
even with your hands so gentle, even with your eyes so kind
i won't fall in love with you tonight any earlier than nine
you'll have your chance to take my life, and i'll
have my chance to dine
the way you feel about me's not the
same as you used to
we've got two polar attitudes
and i don't feel how i used to either
i don't know what could have caused it
maybe it's the way that you treated me
and you'll never drive your stake into this stony heart of mine
even with your hands so gentle, even with your eyes so kind
i won't fall in love with you tonight any earlier than nine
you'll have your chance to take my life, and i'll
have my chance to dine
Track Name: i am a teenager (a song of self-pity)
hard n fast more like hard n sad
im making you come now you're making me mad
i wonder if i'll ever be a high school grad
cause im losin my mind and my sex is a fad
so fuckin alone, my lips taste like cloves
im all outta dough cause i spent it on dope
head under the stove, im feelin like job
our love only grows, you can leave, just don't go
these elegant women are all just beginnin to
understand who what where why how and when
but love, it's a given that you will be missin me
baby don't leave me just count down and breathe
sigh
hard n fast more like hard n sad
im making you come now you're making me mad
i wonder if i'll ever be a high school grad
cause im losin my mind and my sex is a fad
tell me please baby what do you see
in a girl like me¿¿¿ i can barely count to three¿¿¿¿
i promise im not lying when i say you make me happy
but they say that if you love something then you should set it free
Track Name: book of time
starin' at a ceiling full of stars
thinkin to ourselves, "why can't those be ours?"
i'm not getting something, i missed the boat
i made myself vulnerable, you went for the throat
it's not a problem... (i don't care)
a striking silence fills the air
will you wait for me if im not there?
you brush my cheek, fingers in my hair:
"babydoll, please don't worry
it'll all turn out right
the answers to all your questions
are written in the book of time"
scarlet lips match scarlet thighs
a sullen face, solemn goodbyes
cold winter days, and colder nights
you know i won't let you win without a fight
i get impatient, you don't care
your eyes meet mine, and i shoot you a glare
you ask me, "what are we doing here?"
i brush your cheek, fingers in your hair:
"babydoll, please don't worry
it'll all turn out right
the answers to all your questions
are written in the book of time."
Track Name: smokey
theres somethin' about a pair of pointy ears
that scares away your sadness
tucked tail between legs
thoughts fuck with your head
but to love the doomed takes practice.
hearts heal in due time
songs end without rhyme
but you'll never forget
his big black eyes
his absence can drive you straight to hell
but it's apparent to me, he'll miss you just as well.
Track Name: not so fast!! (feat. ian english)
you can try to run but i'll follow you
like a shadow at the edge of the rising sun
communicate to me what excites you
and i'll try to identify with every one
and now i feel your breath in my ear
tell me just how glad you are that i'm here
my hands hold yours as our bodies merge into one
i'm not here for love
i'm just here to have fun
Track Name: requiem of the shittiest day
freak out, you can’t leave me alone
you know somebody’d better take away my telephone
strip down, throw some shit on the floor
i kicked your cat, i made you cry, but i thought it was normal
take a bite, say something bout the antlers
and i never really noticed you preferred die antwoord
“who’s got a lighter?” “put down the guitar!”
you’ll never learn to walk straight with your eyes on the stars
but summer is the loneliest season of them all
today i’m pushing you away but i’ll come begging in the fall
you know, it’s really unsustainable to act so unobtainable
when all i really want’s to have your picture on my wall
clouds pass overhead, and i wonder where they go and where they’ve been
floating in the sky…….
keep on, one foot in front of the other
im sickened by the pungent smell of burning rubber
no sleep, awaken dazed and confused
my head is spinning, body’s aching, and my legs are bruised
people i knew once,they feel like strangers
while my heart’s filled with anxiety, despair, and anger
it’ll happen every now and again
it’s not a question of if, but a question of when
but summer is the loneliest season of them all
today i’m pushing you away but i’ll come begging in the fall
you know, it’s really unsustainable to act so unobtainable
when all i really want’s to have your picture on my wall
clouds pass overhead, and i wonder where they go and where they’ve been
floating in the sky…….
"oh my god. i was so shocked at first, but later… i couldn’t stop laughing!"
Track Name: beware of the marsh
she went white as a sheet
standing in the stagnant louisiana air
you saw her standing there
but you didn't find the time to say hello
and suddenly, as she was standing there
she started to do something you didn't expect
she untied the ribbon around her neck
and it fell off.
her head fell off.
you don't go to the swamps anymore,
not since you witnessed the decapitation of that young girl
it's not that you're afraid to.
it's that you're next.
(burst)
there's something disturbin' bout that mushy green state
no you're never on time, but you're never too late
there's something disturbin' bout that mushy green state
no you're never on time, but you're never too late
Track Name: walked right out the door!
la, la, la, la, la, la, laaaa-!
why'd you have to leave so soon?
who d'you think you are?
walked right out the door!
suddenly, i'm hoping you won't miss me.
Track Name: your eyes
i'd love to be your friend but to put it all simply
it's much too heartbreaking to look you in the eyes.
the movement in your stride as you walk over to me,
it's enough to break me/ go ahead and take me
it's time to say goodbye/i don't wanna say goodbye
Track Name: strangers
reject my affection again
tell me you don't feel the same way i do
but if that's true, then why are you still with me?
and you've got to understand
this is all i know!
wiping tears with the backs of my hands
i feel so alone!
and i wish i knew how to talk to you without pushing you away

rejecting my presence/presents again
tell me you don't love your life like i do
but if that's true, then why are you still living?
and you've got to understand, this is all i know!
wiping tears with the backs of my hands. i feel so alone.
and i wish i knew how to comfort you without pushing you away.

and you've got to understand
the difference between us, your upper hand
emotionally stolid, unavailable
who's to say i even knew you?
Track Name: dear mom
sometimes i feel like the people around me are staring
sometimes i don't know where i stand
sometimes i eat without being hungry
sometimes i ride my bike in the middle of the street
and sometimes i don't wanna play guitar anymore
and sometimes i feel like you don't understand
and sometimes i imagine you lying next to me again
and then, sometimes i don't do anything at all
Track Name: what i do in my own bathtub is nobody else's business
i cut myself shaving in the bathtub
or, at least, that's what i told my mom
what she doesn't know won't hurt her
and it wasn't hurting anyone, after all
my mom's giving me the funniest of looks
what she won't say hangs heavy in the hall
out of nowhere, she suggested therapy
i guess she knew all along!
i cut myself shaving in the bathtub
or, at least, that's what i told my mom
what she doesn't know won't hurt her
and it wasn't hurting anyone, after all
i like you more than i like most folks
we're quite different than we were then
i felt close to you, even with a broken heart
so i thank you for letting me in!
i cut myself shaving in the bathtub
or, at least, that's what i told my mom
what she doesn't know won't hurt her
and it wasn't hurting anyone, after all
there are some things that i try not to think about
their existence just makes me sad
things like letting down the people that i love
and my relationship with my dad.
i cut myself shaving in the bathtub
or, at least, that's what i told my mom
what she doesn't know won't hurt her
and it wasn't hurting anyone, after all
