Track Name: Clouds
The clouds, they are watching
Killing time, I suppose
All operating the devices
Inside our heads

What they want is the best for us, but we insist
That our lives are just slow moving fragile things
To keep us running on train time and move with ease
They push us forwards
No going backwards
No time to trace our steps and bruise our knees

Sell me a condo
I wanna buy it to impress
Those Californian men in loafers
Think I’m a mess
Well it’s a nice thought
To bottle our excuses
Put ‘em in a jar
And I can’t remember
The many times I tried

What they want is the best for us, but we insist
That our lives are just slow moving fragile things
To keep us running on train time and move with ease
They push us forwards
No going backwards
No time to trace our steps and bruise our knees

I know that there is
Something that I’m
Missing out on
Since my head’s been foggy
I guess that
That I try
To escape
The life that I’ve been living
And I wait
For those clouds
To come crashing down
Then I can
Can return
To the love
And the laughter
Track Name: Callous Reaction
Callous reaction
I can’t escape the facts
Believe what I see
Notice you’re angry
Or just embarrassed
By the looks you sent me
Further from that place
Further from where we want to be

Carless attraction
Hopeful imagined
Carry me out to sea
Melodramatic
Deciding between
Your cum and reality
Further From that place
Further from where we want to be

You can take my body and
You can steal my soul
As long as breakfast’s included and
Thoughts grow old

You can take my body and
You can steal my soul
Before the dawn shares the sunlight and
Want takes hold

Maybe an answer
Swallowed in time and
Shyness is all I need, but
It would be nice
If I could persuade you
To not play that card with me
Fairness is the face
That rarely shows its own beauty

I’d like to consider
Ideally that I’m the
Last one that begs to please
My conscience was sour
My lips were all cracked, but
You seemed to pardon me
The steps we took were fast
I guess next time
I’ll mind my speed

You can take my body and
You can steal my soul
As long as you will pretend
That I knew your goals

You can take my body and
You can steal my soul
I feel too young to care
About the undertow
Tonight
Track Name: Miracle
Used to say what’s wrong but you’d cough into my eye
I’d love to not be soft but blessing in disguise, the rubber in my spine

Tried to fire a gun on a dime - but I can’t, I got shy
Tried to sleep it off but I’m fat and without exercise

I can’t sleep anymore

Everything I do is just to please (to please, to please, to please)
You should hope for me (hope for me)
I’m a miracle

If I held my ground you’d alert the crowd of the rat I am
Hypnotize me like a coward
So I scramble eggs and avert my gaze from the mace

I can’t see anymore

Everything I do is just to please (to please, to please, to please)
You should hope for me (hope for me)
I’m a miracle

Why am I so frustrated, why is life so complicated?
I’ve seen tapes of us in bed
I know Dick Laurent is dead

Everything I do is just to please (to please, to please, to please)
You should hope for me (hope for me)
I’m a miracle
Track Name: Born Smart
We’re born smart
It’s takes competence to shift into park

What we pocket
Is hardly a shot in the dark

And there are beasts in our lives, some we kill and some that we ride
And the one that I ride gives me seventy dollars a night

And the streets are taken over by the young
They’re waist my time with their drugs

And I’ll never let another drunkard in
And I won’t accept his hundred dollars

Sometimes I see stars and sometimes I just try to get hard
Sometimes I see stars and sometimes I just try to get hard

My friend does coke sometimes if he can
He owns a restaurant he’s a rich man
If I did coke I’d be dead broke
But I thought about it once in a traffic jam

And there are beasts in our lives some we kill and some that we ride
And the beasts that I kill spend their time in the space that you filled
Track Name: Berry Juice
Why does my ego look exactly like my ex-girlfriend?
And why does it hiss and click like some weird cicada?
Sometimes it leaves me for some other boys body,
Like when I’m sleeping or daydreaming

When I was a lot younger I used to wear sandals
But then I stopped wearing them
I told my mother it’s cause I felt too exposed
But really it’s cause all the other boys shoes were all closed

Ladada

I went on a long walk post-far-away-party
And me and a king sang Irish folk songs
And I told him about my ego and I told him about dreaming
And he left me for a woman and I don’t hold that against him

When I go on long walks I’m usually freezing
And when it gets warmer I can hardly believe it
I feel like a young cub fresh out hibernation
And there’ll be blood and berry juice on my maw soon
And there’ll be blood and berry juice on everybody’s maw soon

Ladada
