1. Letter Thing (2:28)
Dear sweetie
Here I come with another Hey what's happening
Listen to me
Listen to me
You tell me you doubt I'm ordinary
Give me sunshine, make me happy
Give me sunshine
I'm holding in my fingers
The last string I'll set you free
there will be no more questions of strength
I cut my throat playing Indian
Dear sweetie
Here I come with another Hey what's happening
Listen to me
Listen to me
You tell me you doubt I'm ordinary
Give me sunshine, make me happy
Give me sunshine
I'm holding in my fingers
The last string I'll set you free
there will be no more questions of strength
I'll cut my boy playing Indian
I was trying to get to you
Well now that's a friend
You say you feel affection
so come now and save us
Dear sweetie
Here I come with another Hey what's happening
Listen to me
Listen to me
You tell me you doubt I'm ordinary
Give me sunshine, make me happy
Give me sunshine
2. Breathing's for the Birds (3:41)
I want to become what I must
So I can tunnel through the ocean waves to you
I'm on my way now to you
The same thought enters my mind as I'm engulfed in steam
How happy she will be to see her monster become human
And I'm on my way now
No matter the things I say
I've cared for you all my life
Where am I why am I sure to have never existed
Destroying the homes of creatures trying to hide below
i will bash the rocks till my hands shatter
Making a straight path to you
I'm on my way now
No matter the things I say
I've cared for you all my life
Where am I why am I sure to have never existed
You must remember that I always swept the pieces I left behind
I've cared for you all my life
No matter the things I say
3. Nagaina (4:10)
I have a big secret
out of a shroud prison
The big horrible mess
I'm covered with mud and bile
Inching towards the crowd
Arms outstretched
Releasing my confession
I am a snake
I let my children let my children go
to fend for themselves
De scale me leave me naked on the cutting board floor
I have a big secret
Out of a shroud prison
This big horrible mess
Hing to dry in motherland
Sun tinted humidity
Releasing my confession
I am a snake
I let my children let my children go
Our lives are swamps
We are the swamp
Can you take it
Can't you just get rid of it all
I am a snake
I let my children let them go
4. The Notches That Create Your Headboard (2:30)
So tell me again how it felt
to give yourself to the scum
in the beautiful machine
where we made love
green and brown influence
had a hold of you
was there pleasure in your mind
excitement of this getting out
makes you scream
why couldn't that be the day
you choked on it
no one around
to save you
no one to crush your stomach from behind
Was it everything
do you regret your night
I recall you saying you don't regret a thing
well go on your way thinking of no one else
but yourself
Maybe one of these nights
A confession semi will smash your tires
from behind
just don't ask questions
just fly around
with your head cut off
never regretting a ...
no one around
to save you
no one to crush your stomach from behind
no one around
no one to crush your stomach from behind
5. Pleading Post (3:36)
What if the best position to be in
was shoved in the smallest crack in the wall
where claustrophobia kicks in
you will no longer breath
I can hear oxygen sing
Is it wrong to use despair
For our own personal gain
To fuel the fires in the guts
So happiness wasn't for you
it didn't come with the blood
Keep the slavery of despair
Get where you need to go
What if the best position to be in
Was shoved in the smallest crack in a wall
Where claustrophobia kicks in
Use them to get where you need to go
Heard you say if there's a flame
You'll burn every tree that you see
even the one you carved the lame
And the females name into
keep the slavery of despair
Get where you need to go
Frown all you give
You give them the best
Crooked smile is all you give
You give them the best
6. Slow Good Morning (5:05)
There are bodies strewn all over my bedroom floor,
I don't know how they got there but I'm sure,
it's the fuckers in their ships
Taunting everyone who walks by as they sail through my front door
Through my bedroom window, not a window at all
but a hole that peasant left with his cannonball
They look so pretty
Pretty weak to have let it go on this long
There are still bodies thrown on my bedroom floor,
I don't know how they got there but I have a plan now
So they say we aren't really here
so don't just try to punish us,
you are the one who has lost his mind
We didn't bring the bodies, we couldn't throw them on your floor
We didn't bring the bodies, we didn't throw them on your floor
You are the one who has lost his mind
They look so pretty
Pretty weak to have let it go on this long
7. Prematurito el Baby (2:53)
I'm not just your friend
I'm your skin and bones
I think that I can tell when you're acting
Like nails on the edge of a cliff
Your tongue wraps around your life
I will tell you how it makes me feel
I was the queen of the grand ole opry
Now I'm going down in a wad of flame
I'm not just your friend
I'm your skin and bones
I think that I can tell when you're acting
It's not good enough
I just want to see where you'll fall
Like nails on the edge of a cliff
Your tongue wraps around your life
I will tell you how, tell you now
How it makes me feel
Why argue
Without blood
without help
You'll be like all of us
Used to think there was no
future left to talk about
Open up and let the
king of flailing tongues in
I'm not just your friend
I'm your skin and bones
I think that I can tell when you're acting
It's not good enough
I just want to see where you'll...
8. Composer Meet Corpse (2:30)
I want to live on fire
I'll burn my bridges
Smarter man would have said no
Other men would have learned now
You want my money?
It spends like shit
The thief steals from the young
The suit steals from us all
I'll burn my bridges
Smarter man would have said no
Other men would have learned now
You want my money?
It spends like shit
Smarter man would have said no
Other men would have learned now
You want my money?
It spends like shit
I've had to live on fire
You will live, live on fire
9. You Will Not Be Welcomed (4:46)
With your hand in mine the others tell me they need you,
To keep the rest at bay yell in sadness this agreement,
Pulling you into me, into body, the others will think you're afraid
You are sustenance
But my companion
Though I walk alone
Complaining doesn't make good conversation
Giving you up I drown in our water as you are taken away,
hiding the fact that I'm breaking apart inside
Sitting at the south shore
I devour more of you because I know thats what you want
Your head on a plate, eyes cold in sleep
You taste like dread
10. Naive Monarch (2:24)
Please everyone get on the ground now
I know you're scared but I always have been
I need this to get away
To finally be free
Horns on your heads
I'm not of this world
But I'm trying to make the best of it
So you won't stare that way again
Even if it means
Blow you all away
Put it in the bag
Or you will all just walk
Right out of here looking just like me
Unpassable as normal in your streets
I'll wear your horns as trophies
So you won't stare that way again
So I
So fucking I
So I won't have to feel that way again
Even if it means
blow you all away
I want it now
Like a child who can't get what it wants
I want it now
11. Riverside (3:02)
Trading Back and forth our voice
Is something disputed here?
Focusing behind me you look white
Are you looking at something through the other side?
Nowadays you get more
difficult to understand,
Incoherently speaking of your last days
How you'll spend them
finding the blades of grass you'll lay in
Do you hear me?
Do you hear me?
Do you hear...
Slowly your hands fade to your skull
Constantly complaining
of your discomfort
you don't look well anymore
Nowadays you get more
difficult to understand,
Incoherently speaking of your last days
How you'll spend them
finding the blades of grass you'll lay in
Do you hear me?
Do you hear me?
Do you hear...
Feel them crawling
Feel them penetrate
One day I'll get your sight back to you
I thought we were supposed
to bury our dead
12. The First Day of My Second Life (4:53)
Roaming through shambles
Hand in hand
Our fingernails digging into palm
To indicate our first first reaction
Soaked my shoulder with your eyes
I run through my head
Without caution to find the words
To get you to stop
Sobbing I utter the phrases
Of what we will build back up
Won't make the same mistakes again
We will talk
Won't pull away when
One wants to show affection
Soaked your shoulder with my eyes
Overwhelmed by emotion
Overwhelmed with the feeling
That everything will be OK
Overwhelmed everyone will be
Take these new songs of youth
Because you are aware
Write new songs for youth
Because they rot inside
It just showed up
Bags in hand, bags in hand
It gives me chills
How easy I thought it would be
So I let it in
Bags in hand, bags in hand...
