Track Name: BLESSED
have you weeded out the wicked? have you made them all confess? did you show them good vacation? did you wear the spacesuit dress? did you hashtag bless? did you teach them all the verses? did they understand your grace? did they get the good vibrations? heaven's' very best. did you hashtag blessed? the phone it starts to ring. why on earth is LA calling me? I would like to believe, but that guy’s so strung out constantly. she’s a college creep, on my couch spread out so cosmically. god bless, could you hashtag less? could you ever take it easy, take a day of rest, read popular mechanics--relieve a little stress? could you hashtag less?
Track Name: LURCHERS feat. Lane Weaver
I feel uncomfortable when you touch me where you know it hurts. it hurts the most. why do I feel as though this isn’t consensual, you’ve come too close. why you in the club so late? you steal the dogs why can’t you take your turn? it brings on the lurchers. they’ll take you on a date and buy you steak but you’ll just chew their bones. free cote du rhone. what can i do? I’m fucking in love with you. what can I say, to make it go away? I can’t feel my heart. I don’t know if I can take another night wide awake, your gaze--inescapable. I don’t know if I should take another taste it seems I’m wasting time standing in line. then I look in your eyes. what can i do? I’m fucking in love with you. what can I say, to make it go away? I can’t feel my heart.
Track Name: RICH
baby you are a constellation, what I’d give to connect with you. I feel thirteen and on vacation--I’m bad, but can I break the rules? can i spark up a conversation? he can wait, I’ve got a bone to pick with you. I’ve made some observations. I can tell these things are true: you don’t take directions. you break all the rules. you like college music. you could liquidate my cool. one day, baby, I’m gonna get rich and buy you the whole world. I’ve been downhearted baby, ever since the day we met. I don’t wanna chase the sun. I ain’t gonna run, until you come. you don’t need a good reason. if you wanna run, you should just run.
Track Name: DEEP
while you were waiting for the walls to cave in I was into it deep; endless summer. while you looking for a room to breathe I was into it deep; came up with something. while you were searching for what to believe I was into it deep; eyes wide open. it isn’t hard at all to get what you want if what you want is deep and you wanna feel your heartbeat come undone like you were dreaming. I hope you understand I’m dreaming. please don’t wait it’s never over. it isn’t hard at all to get what you want if what you want is deep and you wanna feel your heartbeat come undone like you were dreaming.
Track Name: FUN
she’s always in the same damn place, kicking it like she’s not waiting. lurking in the darkest hole for wicked fun. she likes to grab my hand the way the wind rips up sand and drowns me in the sea like sin dressed in selvedge denim. she is my millennial church, keeps me from searching deeper. keeps me strapped to the bill like an exotic dancer. it doesn’t really matter if I wanted to, you’ve got me choking on the spirit of sex attitude. you’re touching lots of things that don’t belong to you, whatever, take it if you want it. why you gotta scream so loud? it’s never gonna turn me out. I don’t need to leave this town, (she says that’s alright just come inside my ride) I just need you outta my bed. she is my millennial church, keeps me from searching deeper. the only clubs I can hide, all I ever hear is one, two, three, four. it doesn’t really matter if I wanted to, you’ve got me choking on the spirit of sex attitude. you’re touching lots of things that don’t belong to you, whatever, take it if you want it. I get the feeling you’ll do what you wanna do, force feeding me the spirit of sex attitude. what you get from me I cannot get from you, whatever, take it if you want it.
Track Name: PROM
Kathy, why can’t you love me like you love the prom? you died it blonde while we were tripping in the hotel. Rosie, why can’t you love me like you love prince songs? I played guitar while you were getting plastered. Ashley, why can’t you love me like you love the mall? butt dialed your mom while were fucking in the bathroom. Madie, why don’t you hold me like you held the thought? Charlize, why did you play me? At least you played the part. Carlie, you hardly know me but soon enough we’ll talk--I took it off when we were fucking in the bathroom.
Track Name: DANISH POP
when I twelve I had overdosed on danish pop. I wanted love and I swear to god I couldn’t stop. I got so hot. here I am, 25 and cooling off. I still want love but there isn’t any danish pop and if there is, it doesn’t ever get me hot. why can’t I hold my heart in my hand anymore? you were my barbie, I was never gonna give you up. I stayed up late and hid it inside my sock. love was simple I was never gonna turn it off. but then fiona and natalie jumped on top. all the sunshine and the rainbows were just chalked up as one hit wonders that were never even good at all. from then on it was heroin and all white-washed naughty girls in mascara crying in the dark. it got so odd. I wasn’t hot. why can’t I hold my heart in my hand anymore?
Track Name: PINCH
great, you love a good thrill, but you’re already topless. you’re already done. wait, I know you love a good pill, but you’ve already lost it. you’ve already come. damn, you’re pretty sweet for a pinch, but since it ain’t what you wanted neither one of us win. shit, the things we’ll do for a prophit. I wonder what was it we wanna forget. how do people like us make love? do we eat the drugs in brooklyn, do we eat the stars above? if I scream do you think that I’ll wake up or will my lungs just fill with water while you bat your eyes above? where is melody? I saw here yesterday, she was singing to the pavement. sorry as it seems, all i wanna do is sleep and wish I didn’t have to hear her stuck inside the dream, echoing the words and wringing out the meaning. now I’m soaked in disbelief. how could she lie to me like she was doing me a favor?
Track Name: WANT
is death in winter all that you can offer? the quiet sun, it’s stupid urge to breathe life into immaculate--the smoking of your skin. look at me, I have it too. I know want. we will not leave our luck with language. the ghost is gone, bye bye, he’s left the scene. but who will blow the screen door open? who will make us want to believe? I will look on you like a loving person ought to do. but when my eyes fill with air they’ll tire and you will come to understand this truth. I know want. I know the breeze. I know summer and what it’s done to me. I’ve been born and I’ve been reborn every time so young and afraid to see that I knew guilt, I knew sorrow, because I knew love, before love knew me. I knew love.
