Track Name: Slackjaw
Christ on a bike, who's gonna rake the cash off this one?
All of the time is so confused, but others will be in line with you
Polygamous child, who's gonna make the most off this one?
All of his wives know you won't do, but others will be in line with you

I'll stick around for birthdays and holidays
But you'll know once I leave is when I'll call it quits

Blood on the aisle, I'm gonna break this guy a new one
Smoldering fire of boomers' bones, I found a job when the smoke cleared up
Later I'll be dressing up for someone I didn't care for
But that's okay, I'm doing things for better people
Track Name: Careful
She thought she could be going back home in a way so safe for long
But as with all good things there's something to go wrong
A life that could've ended then will remember when everyday instead
She thought she could be going back home

A quick light in the corner left of her vision sends her blind
And all the other girls were following right behind
See mostly there's a swing or miss
But what luck you'd need to get out of this
She thought she could be going back home

Has it surfaced anytime in the past?
I've been down on my luck far worse way prior to this
Have you noticed anything around here notable?
You know, you should be more careful then

And everything's within her hands that's what anyone could say
Years later unprovoked the memory remains
It never leaves it never will, it turned out okay but she cringes still
She'll knock herself asleep back home

And all within her circle say that it did not come too close
She'll see it once again each time she takes the road
It's all about the attitude, have the PMA everything you do
Talking to your friends back home

Has it surfaced anytime in the past?
I've been down on my luck far worse way prior to this
Have you noticed anything around that you'd know?
or I'd know? We'd know?
You know, anyone who's looking for it will find it
Notice, anyone who's looking for it will find it
You know, anyone who's looking for it will find it
Can't believe that we'll be much more careful then
Track Name: I'm Switching Up My Lifestyle to Relate to More Hit Songs
Hey darling, would you settle for apricot?
My family burned away on baby blue too soon
Hail to the chief that's impaled and bleeding, burned the pieces, haloed
My family burned away on baby blue

And your stupid boyfriend too, I'll follow you around where you want
And I can be grateful for your absence, and still cling to your atmosphere
And your selfish girlfriend too, I'll follow you around where you want

Break honest, every line hid something else
Open letters never leave it so vague one can't know
Make something, meet someone, read a damn book, and read it again
My agenda burns away on every thought

Candid excess is nauseating and insecure
Bad people and awful TV can't give up too soon
Learn to sleep less, deny your recess
At first you didn't care, but know you know
My family burned away on baby blue

I'm gonna stop you there, push your hair to the right one second
Put all your glasses down, and throw your head at the wall if you need to

And your stupid boyfriend too, I'll follow you around where you want
And I can be gracious for your absence, and still pine for your atmosphere
And your selfish girlfriend too, I'll follow you around where you want
Track Name: Macherie
I wonder what it'd mean if I were happy
It'd likely be an illness misconstrued
I feel my time is coming even closer
Closer than science could tell in time

If anything I'm happy that it's over
Tarkovsky had this journey looking rushed
But I can't say I'm feeling any feelings
And my endowment is loss of mind

Ma Chérie, I do it in my sleep - I put my heart on lock
And I don't hear a single thing you say
I'll go the wrong way just to spite whoever

Ma Chérie, I do it in my sleep - I put my heart on lock
And I don't hear a single thing you say
I'll go the wrong way just to spite you

Come waste your time on me, I'm unhappy with you gone
Come wax philosophic, I'm unhappy with you gone

My hands are shaking red from clutching strawmen
My eyes are bleeding blue from seeing stars
I pushed it to the limit and then over
Insofar that I did no harm

I wonder what it'd mean if I were happy
I wonder what it'd mean if you were too
I think I'd tell my doctor kill the pressure
Can I go home now? I'm feeling fine

You still believe in miracles, you're out of touch and literal
And know I got my life out for two
But if you're really needing someone I'll go right back to you

You're overdone and ignorant, you're filled with hate and ill contempt
And know I got my life out for two
But if you're really needing someone I'll go right back to you
Track Name: Fixed English
Try to talk to you in fixed english honey
But these words they keep falling out
and break on the ground like everything else
Try to sing to you like sick linguists honey

Try to talk to you in fixed english honey
But I'm out of ways to say no
It already shows I'm going to Hell
All the same for you and dead ringers honey

Try to write to you in fixed english honey
But my pen is bleeding out soon
It keeps me awake and safe in my room
Play along with you and win quitting honey

Try to talk to you in fixed english honey
But these words they keep falling out
Like blood in my mouth or sex on your couch
Keeping up with you in fixed english honey
Track Name: Welp
Racing leaves at high chase speed is so fulfilled when you're with me
I take it all back, it's nice to be in company of two or three again

Get along, make your own - we'll be dead before you're done
It's a big misunderstanding of a penchant next to none
