Track Name: Kissing the Moss
KISSING THE MOSS

I’ve got a game I made
I play it with my friends
Nobody ever wins

Three years and I’m gone
Sink back into my swamp
Nobody’s ever cared

Kissing the moss
Hiding my scars

Breathing in and breathing out
Pretend I know what life’s about
Track Name: Eating the Rotten Fruit
EATING THE ROTTEN FRUIT

I’m thinking I’m gold if she’s on my side
I’m thinking it’s wrong, they hate that I’m wright
If all my blood it froze then I died
Who would ask if I’m alive?

They’re hittin' the beach
I’m wondering why

Nobody asked me
Even thou I’m

Not a fan of the sand or even the heat
Doesn’t mean I wouldn’t try

It’s ripping me open like a cannonball
They’re praising the snake til it’s out of the jaw
Rambling on
Eating the rotten fruit

Is there sin in escape
If every path lead away from fait
and into the past

Biting down on my hand
Just to bleed anywhere

Doesn’t mean I didn’t try
Track Name: Speed Trap
told myself I’ve caught the prettiest one
on the beach the rocks were shaped like a crow
dug a hole and watched water creep through
on the bike home the water covered you

in the dark the suns still doing its job
on the blue fuji that your grandfather bought
I felt younger
I felt great
I felt no evil

swept the driveway twice grandaddy came home
drove the volvo thru miss new jersey lane
a foreclosure on a dead red mansion
on the drive back home your mother sped into

brother from another planets still on
in the living room of the jersey beach home
in the breezeway
in your this arm
I felt no evil

I am lonely
I am angry
I am all evil
Track Name: Ready Freddy?
REACH OUT AND GRAB IT
SON YOU CAN HAVE IT
JUST DONT LET DADDY SEE

MOMMYS PRESCRIPTION
TEENAGE DECISIONS
JUST DONT TAKE TOO MANY

(ROCK)

HAND IN THE AIR VENT
FIND THE PERCOCET
FOR KAREN

FILL THE SCRIPT ON TUESDAY
TAKES MOMMYS PAIN AWAY
JUST DONT LET ME TAKE TOO MANY


NOBODY WANTS AN OVERDOSE AGAIN
Track Name: Damage Plan
in my jeans there's a beast calling out for me

you have cause me

no damages

it's getting hard

pour the water watch a daisy grow
in a field of brush and thorn
spill the salt, slug shakes, panics but
you have caused it

no damages
Track Name: Spirit Bear
IF YOU'RE A PARROT
YOU REPEAT THINGS

I AM A PARROT
I REPEAT THINGS

(PARROT OR PARENT)

IF YOU'RE AN APPLE
YOU'LL BE EATEN

IF YOU'RE A DRAGON
YOU BREATHE FIRE

I AM AN APPLE
I AM BEING EATEN

I'M NOT A DRAGON
I CAN'T BREATHE

FISH IN THE DAYLIGHT
A SPIRIT BEAR

IF YOU'RE AN EAGLE
YOU HAVE NO HAIR

DOWN IN A DARK ROOM
I GET SO SCARED

YOU'RE NOT AN EAGLE
YOU HAVE NICE

HAIR
HAIR
HAIR
HAIR

WHO'S THE BEAR
WHO'S THE SALMON
THANK YOU FOR
THE FISH LADDER
Track Name: Spirit Breaker
TRY TO BREAK ITS SPIRIT
7 YEARS IN HELL ALONE
FIRE’S CONVINCING
"YOU'RE TOO UGLY TO LIVE"

CHASE THE LIGHT DON'T FEAR IT
TUNNEL TO SAFETY A SKY OF STONE
HEAVEN IMPRINTS IT
“YOU’RE TOO UGLY TO LIVE"
Track Name: Speak up
navy blue and drunk
full of hippies blood

a spinning noise, a blurry word
I have listened, have you heard?

I wont get my blood on anyone elses pants
I wont let the truth sleep inside a body bag

kill the cat free your tongue
then you can put me down when I speak up

let em wither let em rot
quiet kills your words will not
Track Name: Good Son
I am a razorback I am an angry dad I am an evil twin I am Macaulay Culkin I am The Good Son I am a drunken cop I am a shark in red water The biggest asshole you know I am a charging Cujo I am the good dog I am Tim Curry from "It" My heart is made out of shit I am a bad homo sapien Meaner than Vigo Carpathian I am the good ghost
Track Name: Stargown
you wear it like a rosary
I know just what you’re made of
I’m up at night

wrapped in magic
big dipper sleeping sun
Track Name: Please Play Rough
I found the pills in your room and I took some of them
Now I cant speak
Please don’t kiss me when you get home late from work

What do you want?
I’m never enough
I guess I’m boring
Please play rough?

I saw the cuts on your arm. Did I make some of them?
Now your bleeding
Never eating, even when you’re off to work.

What do you want?
I’m never enough
I guess I’m boring
Please play rough?
Track Name: Khloe's Baptism
I can tell you’re in for a treat

Goodbye to the orchestra
You honestly mean more than that
And as the cars park down the street

It gets easier done than said
A Susquehanna death
Heaven is North of Hell
Evil’s alive and well
I am alive and well too

In the corner of your room
Licking my wounds
