Track Name: Transition
Should've died at birth.
Strangling on your cord.
Spared yourself the pain.
No one needs you anymore.

Dying.

Swallowing your essence.
The seed will taint the core.
Spread your insect wings.
We all got what we paid for.

Dying.
Track Name: Morals
All your drugs
All your sex
always.

Oh they stare, oh they crawl.
always.

Everything stays the same
Nothing good will ever change

You don't have to use me.
You don't have to care.
I love you very much.

All white lines
All white lies
always.

Oh they sigh, oh they moan.
always.

Everything stays the same
Nothing good will ever change

You don't have to use me.
You don't have to care.
I love you very much.
Track Name: Rabbits
I live up in a house on the hill
When my father speaks, I hear God.
His healing touch... his healing hands...
His guiding light... his guiding hands...

I heard rabbits.

Skirts and splinters, we gather together
Clay men and sinners, gather them in.
This ark carries us over breaking waves
This ark carries us upon the lead.

I heard rabbits.

These boots will walk all over you.

Tongues of fire
suffer the children
Tongues of liars:
brothers and sisters
Tongues of serpents tasting the air
Knowing paradise
Knowing God.
Track Name: Gorgeous
Sick.
This feels right.

Is this how it is to be someone else.
On the altar piece, they play with tightened cords.

Come the glory. The world will shine.

Is this how it is to be someone else.
Discipline and virtue. Full of alcohol.

Come the glory. The world will shine.
Track Name: Camp
Quick shot. Last night. He came. He cried.

Take me out. Hold me down. No surprise.

That's done. Who's next. Three men pay rent.

Take me out. Hold me down. No surprise.

Sure. Calling late at night. This is how I live. This is my life.
Track Name: Paulie
Six shots, seven lives.
Never matters very much.
Cowards live, drunks die.
Click once and close.
You have nothing left.
Lowered in the ground.
Someone's life, someone's son.
Sleeping well tonight.

Now who do you love.
Who else gets killed.
Neighbors shrug, turn aside.
Don't look or listen.
Cold comfort, signatures.
Righteous to the end.
That's blood on the ground.
And you're still breathing.

They loved you.
Inscribed on the grave.
"Viewing paradise...
Let freedom ring."

Blue moon, open wound.
Could put your hand in his chest.
Start to dance, getting weird.
Soon he will collapse.
Another day, another death.
You won't laugh it off.
A corpse here, a killer there.
Of course it never ends.

They loved you.
Inscribed on the grave.
"Viewing paradise...
Let freedom ring."
Track Name: Spiders
My shoes are black. So are my jeans. I touch separate legs washed so clean.

I shine like broken glass. I shine like broken glass.

I own the world. And I'm so sweet. In the sky, God is mine.

I shine like broken glass. I shine like broken glass.

And why not wait. In the summertime. Under the whitest sun. Those fangs in my chest.
Track Name: Lychee
Lychee, why?
You make my CHEST cave
Lychee, why?
You throw around all your WEIGHT
Lychee, why?
I'll BEND when you break
Lychee, why?
There's a pressure on my BRAIN

OUTSIDE there's a night owl
we only speak of in HUSHED tones
MAN, I'll tell you something,
SON, that bird has really flown
Outside the WOODS aren't quite as they seem
When you're living INSIDE yourself
you're living inside a DREAM.

Put this ON the tip of your TONGUE
Getting SPIRIT has never been so much FUN
Outside BRITTLE shiny sweet
Inside rotten sticky CLEAN
Track Name: Hiding
And if the sun went out
right here, right now
right here
And if the lights all went out
right here, right now,
right here
Would it all then be clear?
Would I have you near?

Bring it on back to me
Bring it back to me
Bring it on home to me

In the dark - You'll seek
In the dark - Hiding
In the dark - Find me
In the dark - I see
Track Name: Intimate
You and I.
We walk outside.
In the garden.
The sun shines bright.

You're in love.
You can't win.
You're in love.
You can't win.
Intimate.

Don't say that you need this.
Don't say anything at all.

You're in love.
You can't win.
You're in love.
You can't win.
Intimate.

Everything. Everything I need.
Of course. Of course it's brilliant.

You're in love.
You can't win.
You're in love.
You can't win.

Don't say that you need this.
Don't say anything at all.

You're in love.
You can't win.
You're in love.
You can't win.
Intimate.
