Track Name: In My House
It seems like this has happened before
I found a body living under my floor
It did not flinch when I tried to explore
Rigid, taciturn, at peace under my floor

Speak up
Why why
Why are you living under my floor?

Once I plugged the light in its socket
I found a body living in my closet
I stuck my hand into it’s pockets
It felt safe living in my closet

Speak up
Why why
Why are you living under my closet?

When it’s too much to give
I let another one live in my fridge
Someone from a high Vermont ridge
It feels at home living in my fridge

Speak up
Why why
Why are you living in my fridge?

Why are you living in my house?
Track Name: Orange
Thrown in with the bunch
Did I not bruise?
Exploited, for to touch,
The fingers pinch, the eyes peruse.

I know we’re born to die,
But why so soon?
What a fickle timeline
Even are our farthest reach we’re jejune.

From steps away,
We’re all the same.
So, who’ll appease
your tastes today?

So tell me now, what’s next?
There’s a rumble in your hungry mind
Thick thumbnails impaling flesh,
You strip me down, remove the rind.

Pick and discard the skin.
You say, too bitter for your taste.
Slurp as blood runs down your chin.
Well I beg and barter, you can’t relate.

Life will breathe
In a myriad of means.
Slice it how you see fit
It’s all murder to me.
Murder to me.
It’s inherent speak.
You either kill or you be killed.
It’s all the same between the red and the green.
Track Name: The Shunned
It’s getting to the point where I can’t see the walls
Just a universe of space for me to play
I float around my world content with the void
Until they let in the light and say, “Hello, mate.”

Blurry waves apprehend my peace
Force me to swallow at massive rates
The transient event causes a much needed sleep
I love sleep
I love sleep
I love sleep
I love sleep
I love sleep

Yesterday
I sat down and I wondered
Tomorrow
I will sit down in wonder

What a long way to wonder why

Yesterday
I stood over there and I wondered
Tomorrow
I will stand over there in wonder

What a long way to wonder why
Track Name: Gold Coast
The cities fill with flaxen swine
The pitiful divine.
You can take this castle home tonight
If your devils will co-sign.
Go relieve your pain the even way
A mistress on your dime.
There ain’t no shame, your wife she lays
In his bed all the time,
Pouring wine. Roaring wild and mighty
Like a lion.
The scales can only tip one way
So long, the links unbind.
The blood line moneys held in trust
Decline! Decline! Decline!
Till all that air frothed in your brain
Will lift you toward the sky.
Now take your final pennies
ask a lemming how to fly.
Death defy. Freestyle, tandem trial
Buy a kite, now hold on tight!

Set the coast on fire.
Fly higher. Fly higher.
And buy a kite.

The Gold Coast will fall off the edge of the earth.
A populace of proper etiquettes
With spotless slabs of skin
Dressing their synthetic flesh
and drab conversations, like
“O blessed be thy SUV!
O Holy Opulence!”
But soon you’ll see
Your immunity
Revert to malcontent.
And send you off to drift.
You better wave down a kite and try and buy yourself a lift.
Set the coast on fire.
Fly higher. Fly higher.
And buy a kite.
Track Name: Crazy
If I let the tension build
I'm sure eventually it'll spill
And let the back and forth take over our heads.
Which is fine and good and normal
But I'm afraid this won't stay formal
And you'll kill me with your car instead.
Baby it's a long time coming and
You need some cool and calming
But like a wolverine your hatred keeps you warm.
So if you run too hot, I'm sure to take the things I've got
And get the fuck out of the way
Before your Honda hits my face.

Oh you don't know
How crazy you look right now
You're crazy, unsound.

No one thought to warn me
But then again I'd hide the truth if that's your new boyfriend
I think your brother's heart went out
And your friends without a doubt
Had cautionary tales that they left out.

And now I'm in the cross hair
No use to squirm or shout

You're gonna make me pay
For what I cannot say
Could this be my last day? I'm out.
But I've got one last word for you,
You fucking cow.

I paid the price and learned
About a woman scorned
I should've headed for the hills
Asked why you take so many pills
I lacked the skills and I got burned.
By the craziest force of nature around.
Track Name: God of Prurience
Oh it’s a joke that you’ll have to take
We throw out a line and you eat the bait
Because we want to see your dreams in our filthy hands

Well everyone wants pictures in their face
When was the last time you stared into space?
There’s nothing you can do to change our bawdy minds
Not that you even mind

So come on you fuckers, all who don’t know
Our rein will prevail and avoid embargo
All that you hear and all that you say
Will fall to explode leaving pieces to decay

Take off that suit and live while you can
It’s your rigor that proves you to be inane
There is no need for you to fight this way
Our angels will make sodomy your forte
Track Name: Untittied
Some folly in a necktie
A handshaking race.
The better faker breaks the tape.
Don’t question why we’re messed up,
Just serpents playing dress up.
Some folly in a necktie.

Who puts the lighter near the pilot,
The dominoes stack.
For insurance, grabs another match.
A new king will be crowned
As the old regime burns down.
Just put the lighter to the pilot.

Oh, you know the madness,
Can’t make it stop.
I hope to god this is our final waltz.
All our filthy habits
Spin like a top, I’m feeling
Dizzy as they give me little pills in a cup.

So welcome to the nuthouse
Where we’re so tolerant
Of all the races and religions.
I’d like to take a paring,
and skin them all bearing
No fuckin difference.

Oh, you know the madness,
Can’t make it stop.
I hope to god this is our final waltz.
All our filthy habits
Spin like a top, I’m feeling
Dizzy as they give me eighty mills in the butt.
Track Name: Summer in Paris
I'll chase
I will chase the moon
To the blue
Tread water to you

We will
We will rendezvous
In a month or two
but it will have to be on you

For a little while I will rely on you
While I strive to be your stud tycoon

Sure I'll just
I'll just be friends with you
Boohoo
I fucking treaded water to you

Now I feel like a huge doodoo
Now I'll go ahead and die for you
Then he died
Track Name: O! Gary
O! Gary
I see us being two
In a world built for solitude
O! Gary

O! Gary
It's all so wonderful
And you're so beautiful
O! Gary

O! Paolucci
I'll walk a million miles and back
While giving you a piggy-back
O! Paolucci

O! TJ
If the world splits at our shoes
I'll jump over the canyon and run to you
O! TJ

And TJ
On the day that I die
I'll be happy because I saw your eyes
Every fucking day
Track Name: People Tree
It doesn’t take two to know
Seeds entering eggs causing claustrophobia
I can’t watch it anymore
You let it happen after it’s already happened before

Oh ohh
Do you see it now?

More more and more
You probably had no idea one was in there and it’s face hit the floor
Is there enough food to cook
Or is it that you are boiling up a wad of crooks

Oh ohh
Do you see it now?

When I wake up at dawn
I’m subject to see a litter crawling with urban spawn
Why would it happen twice
Is compulsive motherhood some kind of fucked up vice?

Oh ohh
Hope you have a nice life
Track Name: Last Laugh
Today unclothes the catacombs
Your madness weighs like bags of bones
That fold my back in half
Back to old habits.

Now hold the phone,
I'm s'posed to know
Which way tomorrow's wind will blow?
That's way below the depths of
Going bat shit.

For each ghost
There's a ditch
Spoiled ripostes
Crust their lips
You dove right through their eyes
Howling the last laugh of their lives.

Your curl your nails and paint your hair
You pack your Camus and Voltaire
The day's begun to breed despair
and you're itching

One for no, now two for yes
I will not go till you attest
To hanging my hope, convalesced
On a shoestring

For each ghost
There's a ditch
Spoiled ripostes
Crust their lips
You dove right through their eyes
Howling the last laugh of their lives.
Track Name: Convinced
Thunder breaks, the lightening spits on you
Well I wonder if that light above is going to give you a clue
Stories entice, but are you really better
The hooks may claw a chunk of skin and sweater

Even if the dam breaks the desert stays dry
Atoms and molecules, they all be denied
Clearly you’ve seen all the words that are written in that letter
And convinced now that worse is better

All your biggest lies get figured out, vocal drought, needles sprout
In the next room you see yourself, illusive hell, horrid spell
No turning back when you’re in your head, left sordid, pallor mortis

Glass and needles, your families in the past
All the names and faces, there all buried in a flask
The tiger roars, oh you can hear it, you can hear it in your dreams
All the liquid in the tube always flows down stream

Eat that fire, blow it out your lungs
Sit on a nail, never move your buns
Clearly you’ve seen all the words, all the words in that letter
And convinced now that worse is better

All your biggest lies get figured out, vocal drought, needles sprout
In the next room you see yourself, illusive hell, horrid spell
No turning back when you’re in your head, left sordid, pallor mortis
Track Name: Ervil LeBaron
Ervil LeBaron, you should have loosened your belt
You had 13 wives and still couldn’t control yourself
Some say you were of a brilliant kind
But all of those people were just plain ol blind

Ervil LeBaron, your malicious charisma touched a few
Of some overly attentive cuckoos
Ervil Lebaron, I wish I killed you

You had to be right in being so wrong
Killing your brother to help you feel strong
I’m sure he was probably no prize himself
But Ervil LeBaron, you should have loosened your belt

How can you not just sit back, relax
And realize that Joseph was a schizomanic
You have all these women to feel
But religion made you want to kill kill kill

Ervil Lebaron, at birth they should of took care of you
And thrown you in a pool
Ervil Lebaron the earth will never miss you
Track Name: Devil's Studio
You will lose
We know what to do when you are through with you
There’s too many of you
You are petty but your love song is so pretty

We’ve got a line
For you to sign
We’ll take you far
We’ll take you home
You won’t be alone
You won’t be alone
You won’t be alone

There’s too many of you
You are petty but your love song is so pretty
Track Name: Squirrel Song
There was a tiny little girl
That I used to know.
Made my feet curl my eyes so bright.
Now the things that happen to a person day to day
Have brought her back into my life.

I used to take her to the movies maybe twice a week
Sneaking bottles inside her purse.
I used to take her to the party going up the street
Let my friends know what I was worth.

I used to pull her in the corner and I'd never have to warn her
Take all the love I know I deserved.
And she'd never seem confused
She'd just tear away my blues
and leave a glow where my sadness had lurked.

Now that girl is like a squirrel with a fluffy tail
Big eyes little paws you've seen em running
She ran up and down that tree
fast as anyone could see
Gathering nuts just like the winter's coming

Now my nose is like a hound and when I go sniffing 'round
You can be sure that I get what I am after
And that squirrel came to see
That when with one like me
You have to walk and talk a wee bit faster

She runs me ragged
And I'd like to think that I did the same
But as fate would have it
It took a couple years apart to appreciate this day.

There was a tiny little girl
That I used to know.
Made my feet curl my eyes so bright.
Now the things that happen to a person day to day
Have brought her back into my life.

Now that squirrel and me, we are happy as can be
Me and her, you know, we run the show.
And all my friends say I look taller everyday
Because that squirrel is there wherever I go.
