Track Name: New Math
I carry my weight well
One shoulder load at a time
Crawling for comfort
Scampering through misery
Bed head more like dreadhead
You know I haven't slept a wink
Parting the seas
All while treading water

What's your favorite,
Floating Holiday?
If I had to pick one,
You'd be mine.

It takes a minute
For my head
To play catch up
With my body

War in my head
Jiggle the handle
Become more familiar
With my bones

What's your favorite,
Floating Holiday?
If I had to pick one,
You'd be mine.

War in my head
War in my head
War in my head
War in my head
Track Name: TV Glare
You never do
The right thing
So far removed
Sometimes I think I won't talk myself back
I've learned to fall asleep
With my mouth closed
Last rose of summer
Ha
I was the first to go
Brain stem is full
Orbital prescribed
Mumbling feelings
Of resentment
No vacancies please
I know how to make this work
Held accountable
Family first

Bleach only works
With a libido
Percocet is boring
It's the same old same old
Selective memory
Revisionist history
Cough syrup numb
Life track laugh track
In stereo

Counting my blessings
Counting sheep
A crown of shit
Is still a crown
Never gradual
Always head first
We take it personal
I keep the beat

Drag my tooth
Along the nail
Get the cleanest
Rip possible
Sneaking sips
Hide self loathing

Marxism at its finest
Peak hours
For running the dishwasher
The restraints
Of a packed lunch
If they gave out handicap parking passes
For cancer
We'd all be issued them
At birth

Bleach only works
With a libido
Percocet is boring
It's the same old same old
Selective memory
Revisionist history
Cough syrup numb
Life track laugh track
In stereo

In stereo
In stereo
In stereo
Track Name: Car Date OK
Another midnight
I'm all partied out
Short list of
Former formers
Published then redacted
Single but nodded out
Flirted then aroused
Happy but empty

Teen dream, teen queen
I still wipe my nose on my sleeve
Teen dream teen queen
How's the view from the bleacher seats?

There's a fine line
Between interesting and bat shit crazy
If I could
Shed this skin I would
She said
"I wanna wear you...
I wanna wear you out"

Teen dream, teen queen
I still wipe my nose on my sleeve
Teen dream teen queen
How's the view from the bleacher seats?

Teen dream, teen queen
I still wipe my nose on my sleeve
Teen dream teen queen
How's the view from the bleacher seats?

Teen dream, teen queen
Teen dream, teen queen
Teen dream, teen queen
Teen dream, teen queen
Track Name: Half Kneel
Tangerine Dream
Come and find me
Opposable thumbs
Is your answer for everything
Pretty sure you told me
This one before
But go on ahead
Say it all again

Montreal and all and all
Montreal and all
Claiming sanctuary
In rest stop bathrooms
Montreal and all and all
Montreal and all
Sound the drag line
Light from light
Creating souls
Addicted to sorrow

Awake in the flood
Baptized then sent on my way
Salvation on a dime
One key lift at a time
You could hear a pin drop
Perfect teeth crooked smile
Paradise is always
Too crowded for my liking

Montreal and all and all
Montreal and all
Claiming sanctuary
In rest stop bathrooms
Montreal and all and all
Montreal and all
Sound the drag line
Light from light
Creating souls
Addicted to sorrow
Track Name: 30 Somethingings
You're friends with a lot of people
I wouldn't know how to be friends with
People who want nothing more
Than to want nothing more
So I'll plead the fifth
For as long as they'll let me
Start to get burrowed in
Stick to what I know

Long walks
Short piers
Closed off
Veneer
Cutting teeth
Burning bridges
Different highs
Same lows

Is this self deprecation
Or a homily
Your guess
Is as good as mine

This place is one
Big tourist attraction
Midlife crisis
Close out deals
High school superlatives
Aren't relevant qualifications
There's no judgement
When I cum

Is this self deprecation
Or a homily
Your guess
Is as good as mine

Alpha and omega and forever
Divide and conquer and whatever

Is this self deprecation
Or a homily
Your guess
Is as good as mine
