Track Name: Dog Days
there are callouses on my fingers
where our lust used to linger
the shiny skin a diatribe
deliriously pantomimed
a colored fountain built to spill
my small regrets, the chorused hook
if i felt better would you still be here
if i felt better would you still be here
if i felt better would you still be here?

our skinny dipping fantasies
all those wishes pinned to trees
characters and phantom blurs
a cartoon epitaph obscured
if i felt better would you still be here
if i felt better would you still be here?

you filled me up
i pulled you down
i downed my glass
i'm down and out
yr fallin out
yr fallin out
yr fallin out
yr fallin out

if i felt better would you still be here
if i felt better
would you still be here?

well i feel better
but you're still not here
yeah i feel better
and you're still not here
i feel better
but you're still out there
Track Name: Lilted
the silent movie
captured me
her quiet body
encircled me
the skin deep beauty
baffled me
and i could see
what i wanted to be
but i wanted to be
what you wanted from me but

the silent movie
captured me
her lotus lowly
longing
but only holy
laughter breeds
and i could see
what i wanted to be
and i wanted to be
what you wanted from me but
love is not free

the silent movie
captured me
her tiled eyelids
opening slowly
i found myself holy
and i want you only
but lila said hold me
hold me, hold me
hold me, hold me

she told me of imprints
of polaroid violence
now i want him lifeless
like sunday school silence
but something is dying
and she won't stop crying
so hold her
hold her, hold her
hold her
Track Name: We Said She Said
how could i have known
in those first moments
before we'd grown
together
we were just babies
babies

and we said, we said
that we would go on forever

we said, we said
that we would go on forever
forever

but you said, you said
that i was bringing you down
you broke me

"back off, back off, back off"

cause i said, i said
that i would be there for you
but you don't want me to
you don't want me to
you don't want me
Track Name: Ruff World
when i went
out into my yard
i found my little dog
and she whispered in my ear
said "where are you going my dear?"
it's a tough ruff cold calloused world
it's a tough ruff cold calloused world

and i know, i know, i know that you know
but i only want to see you grow
cause time has worn little lines on your face
time has worn little lines on your face
Track Name: Hi5
i used to call you sunshine
now it's moonshine that gets me by
even if my brain gets fried
that'd be alright
cause if i get high enough
then i'll be high until i die

you were in my dream last night
i woke up feelin lost
for every bag that's bought
there's a greater cost
but if i get high enough
then i'll be high until i die

a catatonic silence
a needle filled with violence
and in that moment sleeping
i'll know the things worth keeping

so if i take too much
well that'd be alright

the sunlight warms my ears
and tickles loose my fears
colosseum mouth
colossal lost and found
bony teeth protrude
and chatter with the sound

they cover me with words
and caustic dry-ice burns
what once was grass-stained love
where once a morning dove
now
a needle numbly shoved

if i get high enough
i'll be high until i die
so if i take too much
well that'd be alright alright
Track Name: Bye
there was an ocean
inside my head
that swelled and turned
with every thought
and in that rippled
chaos i found

myself an island
and built myself a fire
with smoke that reached so high
so high that maybe
that maybe i
would be found

don't leave me out here
don't leave me out here

but as i follow
my sinking shadow
out past the sand
and into breaking tides
i find my skin sallow
and my mouth screaming why
why oh why

why did you leave me out here
why did you leave me out here
why did you leave me out here?

our static jubilations
mere falsifications
of feelings
forgotten
of photographs
rotten
a feckless finale
of constellations now fallen
a final goodbye to a spell we were caught in
a final goodbye
to a spell we were caught in
a final goodbye
Track Name: Lover I Don't Have
i picked you out
of the crowd talked to you
said i like your shoes
you said thanks can i follow you
so it's up the stairs
and out of view
no prying eyes
i poured some wine
i asked your name
you asked the time

now it's two o'clock
the club is closed
we're up the block
your hands on me
pressing hard against my jeans
tongue in my mouth
trying to keep the words from coming out
you didn't care to know
who else may have been you before

i want a lover i don't have to love
i want a girl who's too sad to give a fuck
where is the kid with the chemicals
i've got a hunger and i can't seem to get full
i need some meaning i can memorize
the kind i have always seems to slip my mind

then my went dark
we both forgot where your car was parked
let's just take the train
we'll meet up with the band in the morning

bad actors with bad habits
some sad singers they just play tragic
and the phone's ringing
and the van's leaving
let's just keep touching
let's just keep, keep singing

i want a lover i don't have to love
i want a boy who's so drunk he doesn't talk
where is the kid with the chemicals
i thought he said to meet him here but i'm not sure
i got the money if you got the time
he said it feels good, i said i'll give it a try

but you, but you, but you
you write such pretty words
but life's no story book
love's an excuse to get hurt
and to hurt
do you like to hurt?
i do, i do
then hurt me
hurt me
Track Name: Butane Daydream
butane daydream
thinking that you'll get clean
broke up, break down
bite the bullet, flip yr frown
call back, dial tone
god damn pick up the phone
get fixed, pass out
comatose dreaming now

wake up, reverse
pull it back, quench yr thirst
pinpoint wash out
watered down, crying now
locked up, rib cage
loneliness, look yr age
look yr age

we fell off the wagon
and somehow just vanished
you somehow just vanished
you somehow just vanished

alabaster flower in your broken house showering

ice toed baby-blue blanket
toddler bawling calling for his mom and
she's nowhere to be found

skin dive back alley breakdown
little fallen angel choirs singing
that you're not drowned

you're just quiet
