Track Name: Cool Bully
i know these are the bones
the bones i'd thrown away
but here they are
in my front yard

crossed up on the letdown
i let you take me down again
you took me out, pretend

oh my strings are my friends
on my triggers where i have been
cool bully, be my friend

wrap you into a plastic bag
fuck you up till you turn red
pray your ways will set you free
for your asshole to stop the bleed
Track Name: Shit Piece
Squirming little man- you're the victim- not your fault- better not come around here no more.
you're a little fucking piece of shit.the kind that doesn't stop to think about the ones you say you love.
but you're a little fucking piece of shit.the kind that makes me think violent thoughts and makes me want to open up...
make some holes and pull your insides to the outside through your ear drums and torn eyelids
your flesh over mine- i would watch and i would listen as i wore your body out.
i would not forgive myself if i didn't have the chance to take a crack at what a hack you are.
unoriginal and salacious, a disease, a goddamn virus, i dream your stomach falls out...

you're a little fucking piece of shit
Track Name: Exploded the Jar
why can't my son explore?
why can't my son be yours?
he needs it bad, so bad, bad

i wait for the window
child lock's on the door
the drool, the heat, the pool
what are we waiting for?

let me ooooooout
i wanna wade in the shallow now

trunks tight on my thighs
and i can see paradise
no helmet, please,
today i wanna be free

let me ooooooout
i wanna wade in the shallow now
let me ruuuuuuun
i wanna boil in the sun
Track Name: And the Award Goes To...
constantly bleating
constantly beating
constantly unhinged again

it's everyone's fault
it's not what i thought
it's everyone's fault
it's not worth the talk

have something to say
that's not what you heard
or some kind of grace
just give yourself a chance

but what do i know?
what do i know?

you win best actress
Track Name: Bratting/Bad
make a plan to be better
it'll have to be well-rehearsed
sit and spit strategy
stats of who's most experienced
all that matters is that the fool
trust me is most dangerous

i hear them breathing heavy in the closet behind the boards
i feel them beating down so much harder than before
i fear them coming now that they're breaking down the door
it's so much louder than i remembered when i was torched

talk about something else
try to forget what's in the fold
are they talking about us now
or are we just paranoid?

my only con/son, not yours
it's not what you're thinking, boy, it's worse

I don't, no, need nobody
i don't believe nobody
i love you bad
i need you bad
i can think of all the times that
you fucked me in the ass, oh-
i love you bad
i need you bad
you took the fun out of joking
became the king of over-thinking
you burned it bad
yeah, we've been had
where would i be without you
my pipe, my straw, my spoon
i love you bad
i need you bad
Track Name: Baby featuring Wil Donegan
i'm speakin noose at my cordless phone
i'm shakin head at the dial tone
and i'm too afraid to say i walked away
cuz i'm a baby

baby, i'ma breathin on my own
cuz papa didn't leave me a home
baby, i'ma actin like i know
the university of chicago
baby, i'ma take it down the throat
with the prom king of capo
baby, i'ma put it on the nose
and ring your neck til eyes explode

i need your love
i don't need your love
Track Name: Praise Me
opened the door for you
led you by the hand
welcomed you in again.
then you began
squealing about stomach aches
and a marriage that wouldn't last
you are an outbreak,
a virus spread fast

prays me praise you
i pray rays of sun
burn you burn you (fuck you fuck you)
burn you well-done

i will not sympathize
i will not be kind
i will not waste my time
angered by lies
turn them and burn them,
they're yours to abuse
just make sure you leave here
with your neck on a noose
Track Name: Save Me featuring Dorian Wood
save me, save you
save somebody new

fuuuuuuck with me
oh, come running to me

so friendly, friendly
you're so sorry, sorry

fuuuuuuck with me
you'll be sorry, sorry
