psycho circus owner tried to force his masterpiece into my mind wrapped my thoughts in caution tape tried to take my keys to the city away when they cut down the tree all i did was yell timber i ain't got no splinters and i don't need your splinter remedies no, not me my voice box is a blue whale scarred singing in a minor key the soulless describe me their face then point to a mirror casually don't you dare say you're better, it's gonna make you worse time got mugged and beat the fuck up you got caught with it's stolen purse now you wait in a prison cell, your pocket watch the burning hearth the home you dug out on the beach is too far to expect a visitor
Spit 02:56
wailing bums drink taaka laying down then dare to ask me for a dollar i shred my lungs for a living in the underground and never pronounce disaster you better raise your collar to the cold or else be hooded like a cobra spitting out i got a strong opinion of what my job ain't so when they knife my mona and dip me in finger paints i gotta drink the juniper to tranquilize the oppressive shade i know what's necessary... nothing makes sense and i can't move on with my life in a dark room in my subconscious snow falls silently amongst tiny beads of light my eyes look like my mothers in a 1:15 a.m daze here i am dripping with confessions but lack conviction to clean up the messes i have made cause i waste my time trying to humor those that will hate me either way it's a waste of time to try and humor those that will hate you either way
Haunted Now 03:49
interested in eagles and the weather girls just show up and get presents trampling around on other peoples weakness love just makes you crazy and fucks up your breathing you know i'm only cruel because i'm close we let our love get haunted now the second time's stormy sleeping with ghosts we gotta bed full of bodies now i'm gasping for art all night strangled blue as a hyacinth and now you say my kisses only clip your lips cause i don't subscribe to adoration's feverish tricks it makes me embarrassed and i could feel it's lightness
Aluminum 02:36
i think by now i'm just loitering in your heart and i'm wondering if our love's content to starve cause the clouds are dripping down like mercury and they say soon they're cry out rain or spring a leak ah babe forgive me if my hearts shivering like aluminum though i know if i leave you with bad feelings then we'll both get some good writing done so i chase my love away or subtly evade i'm gonna chase my love away tell me sweet pistol what good does it do for you to remind me all the time you're capable of breaking hearts you made it clear by now and i know that you're pleasures muse so don't leave me in your gallery of dead lovers art how can you blame me if my hearts shivering like aluminum go on now leave me with bad feelings and we'll both get some good writing done
Bloodstains 02:21
should've never told the doctor i was a hypochondriac cause now he never does believe me though i keep on going back and the library thinks i'm criminal i lost something in the dark so i think i'll cut my losses and go get drunk in the park but where's my plain colored barn? all i got are old bloodstains nothing makes no sense and nothings gonna change between here and mississippi there's a town called sweetsborough where the water runs warm over the keys of the piano and the rock slides in the mountain look just like rolling gold and i never need no zinc to unfreeze these frozen bones that's where i will know the truth in my blue barn colored plain where everything means nothing and nothings gonna change
Michelangelo 01:57
makeshift medical professional honest as the priest who's a pedophile in a cardboard confessional i swear some people they don't wanna be loved they just wanna get beat up i know i'm never gonna be the one that you're scared of but i'd hoped to love you was frightening enough the state systems filthy privileged children just shake up their beds confetti falls on a regular basis open your mouth taste the arsenic beautiful static so vapid and useless ugliness swallows and shrieks like a crow a knife comes slashing to deface this canvas i'm your corpse michelangelo i don't wanna be loved.
War Veteran 00:46
dressed up like a war veteran dapper gentleman bullshit's played out you just wash up on the shore and start taking pictures of yourself talking loud bout big ideas then shut your mouth once their out of style you ain't no war veteran dapper gentleman at all
the surfaces shimmer and i shine back dull i hate all my friends when i'm all alone no time for the evening the daytime's just noise oh what i wouldn't give to be a beautiful boy the moon makes its sad arc and always finds me sleeping i'm tired of these karmic revelations the things that only i know so pour me a ribbon of gold i'm done planning on suffering so i suffer no more she's a bit mystic she sleeps to my left though i'd sworn love was gunned down tonight i'm a witness but life keeps on piling up and i keep trying to live some dream but no one warned me employment was a wasting disease
i wanna smudge the moon with charcoal baby i wanna see those construction paper stars i gotta light skinned woman like a fox tail stuck to my heart if she see's that i been fishin mama makes me face the waterfront cause i got resolve as thin as a mouse's ears and just as quick to run away and disappear if i'm feeling blue i'm gonna hurt myself if not i'm hurtin you so watch out i'll pay a very handsome ransom to retrieve that hostaged sense of myself i need help! cause i'm tired of making you cum from your snow capped mountain to burn that oil drum your oil drum love i'm not looking for anything that's real i want sun damaged film i wanna ferris wheel i want no high tide breaking my stride just like i'm some chandelier cause i'm not... though i can be very carefree when distance makes fault lines insincere and disappear can ya hear???
Kill Me Rag 02:24
i would wildly swallow a smile if i didn't spit it out as an injury... i'm gonna get drunk like a cherub trapped in flight on that concrete fountain i'm tarnished and i'm chipped when i'm naked trapped in flight on that concrete fountain lord i've been wondering what's it gonna be that's gonna kill me? constantly in reverie constant in recovery mr.bell your thoughts are base come looking for my wife again she's been gone across the hall she's been gone for quite a while mr.bell your intellect is making my stomach sick
Precaution 02:53
at every turn the machine's collecting process and redirecting our thoughts towards what's distracting hiding what's really happening we perform like a herd still though estranged from our neighbors we trudge our vacant distance thoughts strung up in fishnets out of breath and gasping broken from the struggling entering the dark phase and depression is searching for release that needs no precaution this empty food is so accessible the quick fix the cancerous vehicle spent all your money on accident with pin pads and plastic transactions and the doctor seats you in a booth puts a stop watch in plain view says you're the healthiest he's seen all day the whole time he looked away he said there's no cure just precaution so all of a sudden you're an arson head full of nothing body shatter in the rain lungs snatch for oxygen waste minimum wage on a lunch break obsessed with communication attention span lies terminal in the hospice losing patience these are the ruins of precaution sleeping like a brown mouse in a barn dreaming of the owl and his arms
