I Don't 02:13

I don't need your fool I see you comprehend And I function fine, I think There's gotta be a purpose, see Just because I love horses doesn't mean that he's left us Oh, i'm no good You're no good But his love doesn't bring us any closer to the hate that we tolerate And we take it You're no good Taking time with all the sighs, we busted up, we compromised Have we been here before? I've been dry too long And I take better care when I know there are mama's tears and most animals that I meet I took more to hold I knew what you did and how you did it, how you hurt it You opened up in front of him Deemun as a son Deemun as the sun (I need more) (animal)

ICU 03:17
Check out all the bodies in the yard, the boulevard is clean Did you wake up to the sound of death or birdies whistling? Do you love your neighbors like you love your peace and quiet? Must be nice to think that all you need is a sticker, shirt, or sign Then you act surprised when there’s a shot, a parking lot death Take the money, take the money and then where will we wash our hands? Think about it every night and day, we’re dumb, we’re deaf, we’re blind You can wish, you can wish it away, but you’ll have to concentrate Check out all the bodies in the yard

Artifacts 02:25
One is a giraffe, and one is a mask Oreos and milk, TV shows and filth Stressed out to the max, all I need are cats I am a cocoon, I am a good dude Swear on mama’s grave, swear on papa’s eye

Never Gonna 04:33
Never ever gonna give in again Never ever gonna pretend Never ever gonna have fits again Never ever gonna get sick Caught in a storm of knives and forks The spoon is bent and my face is warped I don’t wanna "get along, get along" with you jerks It’s too much pressure when you’ve lost all nerve Never ever gonna give in again Never ever gonna pretend Never ever gonna have fits again Never ever gonna have kids Woke up on the clock and wanna exit this plane Oh, everyone dresses like they work out all day Feigning being heir to some sporty hall of fame Oh, everyone dresses like they're going to lift weights Mister Unhappy, Mister Coughs Into His Handsies Mister “I Don’t Trust Anyone, Trust Anyone” Mister Unlikely, Mister Elder High and Mighty Mister Better Fear Everything and Everyone Mister Unfriendly, Mister Hands Are Cold and Clammy Mister Couldn’t Be Better Than, Be Better Than Mister Condescending, Mister, stop your patronizing Mister, do you feel anything? Or love anyone? Mister Entitled, Mister Slit Your Throat I’m Laughing Mister, better lock your doors at night, lock your doors at night…

I don’t need your markings I gave fair warnings One in a hundred or ten in twenty And we sure broke its back And we won’t be back Behold(er), come closer Fold me in your arms (Be)Hold(er), I’m your source of Waves that wash your thighs Lay down, it’s early One in a hundred or ten in twenty Cuz when they come we will hide Until they’ve left our sight And we sure broke its back And we won’t be back Behold(er), come closer Fold me in your arms (Be)Hold(er), I’m your source of Waves that wash your thighs With salty water Keep your eyes shut tight For it’s almost over Not much longer, right?

Taking It 02:59
Hot on the pavement, cooling in basements What came before us was far from clean Taking the favorite back to the place that I Demand you lay palm fronds on me Will we be lifted and swallowed by rays of light? Shifted gears so we’re in reversal- I Forgot there’s more than these tiny screens But then the light shone and we were grateful and The trumpets were blasting our favorite song Will we be lifted and swallowed by rays of light?
