Eyelids 03:31
I nailed your picture to the backs of my eyelids and I went on walking, hands forward with a stick and in the daylight I’d stumble through collections of red until crawling back slowly beside you in bed and in the morning I’d struggle to keep my feed inside right terrified, fear of the outside "And lead us not into annihilation but deliver us from rubble for thine is the power, and the power... forever and never, oh man” * forever and ever, oh man. * quote from Americana by Don DeLillo
2.
Hallmark 01:05
my dad would swing me on the bay all frozen over in a basket with a rope and with my sister steady business in a time of corporatized nostalgia be sure the thoughts that close your throat were never theirs but are your own count down to a launch for me cardboard spaceship 3 2 1 hit green when I was a little kid I’d sit alone and make shit up oh god forbid
3.
Beansy 01:39
it’s too easy to compare yourself to anyone and not consider all the factors that shaped their world that were out of their hands and circumstance it’s a lonely road, don’t keep yourself alone you can look around, don’t have to crack the code if I’d only known, if I’d only known it’s not the end result, don’t take the test say no in due time you’ll find out that you are your own mind and anybody can fuck right off if they pressure you to live your life to the line
4.
Safe Place 01:00
his is a safe place or so we like to think and say not everyone feels comfortable takin' a punch in the face you can express yourself without being violent you can be a better person by not keepin' silent
5.
she latches onto anything her pet rock who can blame her when you need a friend who cares if it doesn’t breathe and who are we to judge her otherwise it’s not like we’ve got our shit together and as long as she doesn’t hurt anyone he latches onto anything his healing crystal who can blame him when you need a savior and every path is priced out but who are we to judge him otherwise it’s not like we’ve got our shit together and as long as he doesn’t hurt anyone it’s a tight rope to walk to validate yourself and not fall prey to someone's monetary demands in my dreams I am the queen and everybody loves me
6.
Porky 01:39
got away for a long week in fall and I know it’s you couldn’t take it, my day-to-day but I know I know it’s true if you’d ask my to I would move far away ‘cause I hate this place when I’m not with you it’s contagious this fear of missing out well fuck that I’m through if you’d ask me to I would
7.
Mend 02:34
I’ve got an obsession with distraction quick to render a picture from the slightest clues this is an addiction to self-reinforcement quick to render a picture from the slightest clues I’ll believe anything I tell me quick to render a picture from the slightest clues I’ll believe anything I tell me mend the facts to fit the picture discard the awful truths I’ll believe anything I tell me
8.
This Land 01:23
I couldn’t wander any further if I tried I’ve reached the end, the rising tide and where you come from where you go’s the same this land is righteous and ashamed built on backs of shallow lies and broken pacts it’s no wonder we’re all stoned and restless in our homes but where you come from where you go’s the same this land is righteous and ashamed but we’re okay tell yourself you’re okay
9.
Body 01:08
I dunno, I dunno what you need you can touch, you can feel, but you can’t see try to think but it’s too hard to breathe head’s a mess and your body’s empty stand tall, stand tall but I’m weak every twitch is an impulse to speak and I underestimate threats like these your body
10.
I break the glass and look for water sop it up with a rag and swallow shards cry for help, answer: do it yourself it never lasts, these routine hard-ons for self-inflicted feather and tar cry for help, answer: do it yourself and I’ll keep riding these expectations unsure of in whose mind the thought resides 'cause I’m not quite right if you need to find help from anyone well I’m not quite right and as I choke, not from a smoke but from the fragments in my throat I’ll hope for comfort in strangers’ eyes
11.
Human 03:11
I spit, I suck, I shake and all my bones they break you sit, you watch, you wonder and all the while I smile I’m human, I am a snake eat my fill of grave mistakes
12.
true I cauterize my wounds and stitch them with a strong line feel right in time digest that guilt you gather stacked high in this daily occurrence of eventlessness here everyone is asleep all of the time I’d like to say I tried
13.
once I was told we’re as good as ghosts that we sold our souls for the long ride home so when everyone was down and drunk I tried to eat the sun for a short while sun: [come along my way take it all call it what you will give yourself a break] unhinged my jaw I set to gnaw felt the grease down my chin felt the beast shudderin' and when everyone was good and drunk seen what I had done I gave a long smile
14.
can you figure me out? I’ve been thinking about you do you scream and shout? would it split you in two? I don’t wanna know feel like I’m getting old do what you’re told to do I am bought and sold and every trick is tried and true I don’t wanna die I don’t wanna die not for fear of the unknown I don’t wanna die not for sins I won’t atone I can’t tell you why we feel release in their control but I don’t wanna die we’ve built each other made a home can you figure me out? I’ve been thinking about you
