Valparaiso 04:34
SPOIL YR PARTY I'm only makeup & skin & bone & fat & flesh I only wake up to eat & work then back to bed It only makes it harder To make it seem I'm smarter Than all you chumps down there All vaguely self aware. I'll spoil your party & run nude through your parents' place I'll drink their liquor they'll hate my guts but respect my taste It only makes it harder To prove to you I'm smarter Than all your bestest friends Out on all your long weekends Now it's best to run away Or just disintegrate
Tsunami 02:03
TSUNAMI a tsunami washed our town away now there's nothing much that's left to say I look out at all those friends betrayed i loved too strong, I loved too strong, I loved too strong i guess but tomorrow is another day, and you can't tell what might come your way i look out at all those cherry trees all in full bloom all in full bloom all in full bloom i see
Dull & Safe 02:22
DULL & SAFE wanna drive down wall st in a sherman tank wanna find a young couple who don't owe the bank (burn down the bank) we'll kidnap a senator start pulling rank but i'm in my basement my dick in hand now we just need to find a guillotine and choose a name for our conspiracy wanna crash into the homes of the lawyers pull em out of their swimming pools make em work for free (like me) sit em down next to their wives in their foyers draft all their children 'to the army i am a martyr who's been sent by god and that's the reason that they called the cops all pins and needles like hearing the beatles the millionth time just let me know when i'm good or bad now baby hell it's a little lazy of me just a way to disappear dull & safe as Xmas cheer dull & safe keeps me right here
Every Bed 02:14
EVERY BED early one to rise/ slip in with your toe/ step into the car and rattle slow/ far up on the rise/ skim a little life / give a little thought to rivalry / fall back into line / come and see the light / have a little hug by fireside / chatting up the boy / couldn't let it lie / every little deed will surely shine build a little fire / read a little book / think about the effort that it took / every tree and ax / every game of catch / every man stretched out on the wrack / every little road / every little car / buy a roll of film at camera shop / rattle up the hill / head into the climb / every soul arrives in his or her own time every little house / every little home / every little bed and camasole / never knew the look / never knew the time / never knew a girl who's solely mine / every mote of dust / in every beam of light / little catherine shaw is camera shy / write it on the wall / add a little time / maybe leave a note / maybe leave a rationale...
FORCES AT PLAY The earth can die the land can fry The sea can boil the forests burn And tho we might be last to die I promise you I promise you Through the Holocene we fell A mess of bloody knees Forces are at play so Duck your head and come with me We'll change our lives we'll falsify Our documents we'll live in sin And tho we might live far away I promise you I promise you The Holocene had darker themes Than we could have believed So much for the magic show For this is how it seems
2 Coreys 03:35
2 COREYS Corey, it's always something You said it's this or it's nothing You were right in Telluride You told yourself you'd be fine and you are my favorite and I hate dudes who are fakers Tune in tonight to find what you are looking for other Coreys Corey, it's always something but you can't have something for nothing Tune in tonight to find what you are looking for other Coreys
2 Escobars 03:09
2 ESCOBARS here our children's bones lie beneath our homes as waves of marines flood our village green take some good advice leave medallín tonight hop the nearest train choose a different name if I leave now there's no coming back no postcards home no calling dad all i've known was wrong and always looking to come undone you won't ever have to run aiming to be no one
Hounds 03:37
HOUNDS with cops and hounds from 19th to downtown with cash and law as they tear your building down they'll squeeze this place until the coins pop out then whine about the noise when they should move down south maybe then they'll be alright over dirt and grass over snow and rock thru dust and wind through open doors and locked we'll hunt you down then we'll sink your yacht we'll squeeze your flabby neck until your head pops off maybe then we'll be alright oh god give me a sign i am ready to go all roads lead to rome where the emperor has no clothes we were alright they were alright you were alright I was alright
Emergent 03:39
EMERGENT i've always wanted you to know how i got taken in how i thought i was on top in control of things i guess i lied to myself that is there's no way i am not winning this i'll confess it all to you but you won't understand how they marched us up and down put guns in our hands then they asked me to report and point it at my head aw i laughed it off back then but i was scared the point of it all is this the heart expects too much we always hope an arrow hits but they all miss I've always wanted you to know...
