Cool Bully 03:28
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
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
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
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
Bratting/Bad 07:09
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
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
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
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


Thank you for listening.
