Track Name: 47th Voice
underneath the sky, underneath the brine.
Track Name: Hesitant Moves
i don't want pockets filled with gold, or spending time with folks you just don't know. it's the way we talk and the way we get ignored. well, action's dead, you're a liar and steal well. you'll know when i've bared all of my teeth- you'll see me wrap him in dirty brown sheets. all brokenhearted, angry, we were golden, weren't we? all brokenhearted, angry, we were violent, weren't we? hallelujah.
Track Name: Bill Box
the deeper i go the more dangerous. they roll and rumble in us, uh-huh.
Track Name: Cold Sweep
cold sweep elisa. elisa's my friend till the end.
Track Name: Master, You Are Soggy
tell them that you're sorry. tell them that you're sure. tell them all of your worries, and let the water pour. tell them that you're stable. tell them that you're bored. tell them that you're angry/able, and let the water pour. let the water pour. tell them about your monies. tell them about your score. tell them that's your story, and let the water pour. tell them you'll be stronger, and you'll be more secure. tell them you're so grateful, and let the water pour. i'll swim, i'll swim with him, to the edge, to the edge of the lake. whoever doesn't float will win. i'll swim, i'll swim with him. i'll swim, i'll swim with him, to the edge, to the edge of the lake. whoever doesn't float will win. i'll swim, i'll swim with- let the water pour.
Track Name: Boots Dry
i know what dogs do say. i know the crack in your eye is real. i know they all fall down- when folks come to, they often say they'll stay- away too long. i know that people hide- in turn, i know they think they're so brave. no more dogs do cry. i know they keep you up all night. i'll be dog fight. i'll be dog fight. to songs that sound the same, i know i'm not the apple in their eyes. i know they fuck around and look away when eyes need peel. no more dogs do cry. i know they keep you up all night.
Track Name: Freezer Burn
i don't really care what you've been told, i know what jealousy does and i'm sold. evil demon spirit that is temporarily dog-pig, the final beast, all three swearing hell. never been one to comprehend, but i don't get why you're so cruel. never been one to understand, but i don't see why you're in demand. i don't really care what you've been told, i know what prejudice does and i'm good. the sour smell of the sweat, the sweat under my chin, the fields and folds of skin invite the moisture in. never been one to comprehend, but i don't get why you're so cruel. never been one to understand, but i don't see why you're in demand.
Track Name: Red Friend
the wave came through the bathroom sink, broke the window of your passenger seat. unhooked, swam out from the sea, yes, i threw up on your toilet seat. rewards card gets you ten cents off every gallon of your favorite gasoline. deathface, you could use some cream for the dry skin on your face and knees. then i looked around and i saw his face- it judged us. it judged us. brain's dead, left in the park, left in the trunk for jacob. "damaged in the brain," i heard you say, but is it dire? "no, i feel okay." middle of the skull, let the water flow, close the wound, lose yourself to growth control. water on the brain, water from the lake, in the plastic bottles that we stole. then i looked around and i saw his face- it judged us.
Track Name: Dickhead
take me home tonight?
