Palms 05:28
and i ask you questions about where i'm from but you shouldn't ever use your tongue unless you speak with love and now i get lazy over my heredity if you really wanna sing along these are your songs how'd ya think it all gone bad waiting for your hair to grow back you missed out on all the real love and then you look so sad blaming everything my brain lacks you're not the cornucopia that you were now you say your memory just fell asleep but you shouldn't open up your mouth unless your words are planned out now my biology went and turned on me maybe you shouldn't pray so loud when you're talking to yourself i named my band after your house because it felt more like a hotel all the heating bills came at once and i won't sleep until i paid them off but i am nothing still without your songs all my dreams are still beautiful all the music's filled with animals so i can make it all tropical now I can dance much faster across the neighborhood all tropical behavior i shake the chains and hooks now i can see the father better than i ever could you put yourself on paper now i read you like a book
Oikos 04:21
you were the coast at the end of the road where the water meets the highway in a beach side town in the greek word for house if it gets any hotter then i'll stay but this could be the change in motion that sets that feeling right and it don't gotta be a big production just come step inside i know you can you in those clothes that i wanna unfold and make a mess of you until you see it our way while we rest beneath palm trees and give thanks for the heat well i just never seen it any other way but this could all be easy money counting with both our hands and of course i wanna shape you to me but God keeps laughing at my plans so i laugh back at him everyone is watching us i was in love with jerusalem but existentialisms just more fun
Suburb 03:59
little island in the street you pay the rent and the heat while i am lying through my teeth i just sneak out after you fall asleep it's been this way since the fall and i don't need a crystal ball to show you how i love you and show you how i want to but i've been waiting so long to sacrifice my favorite song and show you how i love you and show you how i want to as soon i get home from church i'll laugh until the future hurts to show you what i'm gonna do just to get even with you i'll never leave the suburbs and i'll play your passion in reverse to show you how i love it's the biggest compliment now that you've gotten so old it's my brand new testament that i'm gone shove down your throat and it's one of my best friends pissed at the suburban clones forget religion i've got a prison at home
how ya supposed to get down when your gangs in jail looking at halloween shit on people's houses till the party goes off just like you want how ya supposed to get down sending drugs in the mail put your hands back in your pockets till the party goes off just like you want how does it stay clean when you're working it out with your mom how do you stay asleep with the fire burning in the lawn then it goes and leaves saying that the glow is gone that's just what they want you to think i don't see it all gone bad going off at the clap of my hands i wanna talk to the one i haunt like they were just the one i want it's close enough to where your love grows in my apartment where you steal my clothes it takes forever, it just makes me laugh we're in the future and we won't go back
Loose Woman 04:14
i tell you one thing you can come out tonight with my friends but if i know anything you gone wanna see how it ends and every little time i treat you like a whore i don't feel nothing cause i seen it before you gone from man to men now your getting ignored i tell you one thing if you come back tonight i'll call you mine but if i know anything you ain't gone be sleeping in my bed tonight and every little time you open up the door i know you give me all your loving but i want more you gone from man to men now your getting ignored go one tell me when that feeling's right say "i don't wanna leave the swamp tonight i feel the creaking and the shaking and the hands on my car from my God damn acoustic guitar" go on show me how to treat you right say "i don't like it when you fuck with my mind you make me lazy make me crazy leave me out in the street thank God it's so easy to get drunk for free" and you come to me talking about the promised land come tell me tell me something i don't understand when it don't mean nothing to me not one damn thing come music music music messing with my brain if i can not use it then no one can when i want the whole damn thing go on show me how to treat you right say "i kinda liked it when you'd fuck with my mind i see the money and the whiskey and the girls at the bar so how am i supposed to make this look hard?"
Rediscovery 03:27
the closest to bilingual i'll ever get is praying on my knees and then talking shit if some white line shows me you exist then i'll be laughing like job and have some kids strung out on benzodines so we harmonize get dressed up and get baptized you sung so well for your first time in arabic i hit the switch parked next to a cop with my prescription pot that chariot right must have been so damn hot i hitchhiked in sandals to the back room of a black tomb fuck the money in my brain i was born again in a cheaper womb i snuck on to the ark dressed like a baby lamb and now i'm selling bars in the promised land and the big man upstairs ain't the only one losing his hair the autotrain was hell so i ate and slept got drunk at the fair and talked to myself about some sleep techniques i heard somewhere wide awake in the heat no rediscovery now God must be moving upstairs
Seasonality 03:57
i was sleeping in my fathers house trying hard to spit the poison out make it move faster into the south every single season sleeping on the couch you cannot choose to buy your third house each one of you has their own mouth sick with the blues so put your lights out every time you move applause from the crowd even in the summer when it's creeping in your room i cut it from my stomach so there's even less of you i get everything i've wanted in my own little tomb on a green colored island you will see the magic soon
You (Shake) 03:34
well of course i don't wanna leave you with no way to pay the rent in the bathtub when i fall asleep of our shitty apartment and i still see your kingdom ways that first made me wanna be your friend so i calm you with a simple phrase probably something from the old testament i wanna cut it in half like the best king we ever had and when i go to take a bath wash every hair on my head is it clean enough for you is it clean enough to drink from your pretty cup go on throw it on the table at once i wanna see the cards you were hiding from us in the biggest swell in the cleanest smell i can hear the wedding bell i wanna hear the biggest laugh like the best high you ever had and when i go to do the math gone fit it all in my head to make it clean enough for you but you were the one who was first who was nothing like i wanted you to be strumming along in reverse it was nothing like i thought it all would come to be and encounter, how it hurt it was everything i wanted you to be so come live in my home where it don't snow what more could you want when it all just comes to me
Voodoo You 04:20
purple rain coming swirl early evening tornado over the swamp hot wind blows little house building cool water flowing come home one that i want everybody knows where you been hiding away in your cabin by the interstate i went crazy over that fruit i ate and i woke up a slave damn magic woman chasing you back in your so old but you're the one that i want so our love grows and i'm a man covered in magic come back finish what you started i gone chasing after you but your love's gone cold i'm gonna take your shit till i get old how you been wasting away it just won't happen in a southern state i call you baby when i'm filled with hate but my love's gonna rust anyway where do you go girl with your money and your pride where does the water swirl with your skin gone turning white because i dress myself for you every single time i move the same spirit of my youth is finally set loose
Book God 03:07
you are not the God of books us children don't know a thing you are so old to me we are not forgiven based on our looks we control everything we are so ugly to you
