In My House 02:06
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? As I plugged the light in its socket I found a body living in my closet I stuck my hand into its 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?

Orange 02:01
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.

The Shunned 02:48
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

Gold Coast 03:32
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.

Crazy 03:53
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.

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

Untittied 02:18
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.

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

O! Gary 01:25
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

People Tree 02:14
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

Last Laugh 02:06
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.

Convinced 03:11
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

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

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

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.
