Track Name: haircut (for mom)
people are a plague and this change is such a chore
that i do not feel the need to be a body anymore
or feed on the remains of a dead and distant place
where a haircut can fit my face

mommy made me awake in a place that can only hate me
mommy made beautiful babies but first mommy made me
Track Name: yr house is a bird's nest, too
yr house is a bird's nest, too
how does it feel to know you owe

everybody

you hold the keys to the city
this design seems obvious to me

everybody knows
Track Name: all the time
i want to paint the prettiest picture
but i was born without a steady hand
and i want to sing the saddest song
but my voicebox is filled with sand

i want to make a brand new friend
but i'm not very nice at all
and i want to smile when i go outside
but i am miserable

all the time
Track Name: enough (grandma plays the lottery)
i'll never have enough
can't have it

repeating
this day can only frame my face in doubt
repeating
counting on my god to let me down

grandma plays the lottery but never wins and never will
Track Name: for me pt. 1
every thunder clap a laugh with me
saying, "isn't he funny, isn't he?"

it's all for me
it has to be

every night sky shimmer
a gold star for the effort

it's all for me
it has to be
Track Name: g2g
something tells me i've got to get away
i can't stand to stay here
i've got to go

i can't stay here
spending every here

i gotta go
Track Name: for me pt. 2
arbitrary validation fucks me in the head
a carousel is spinning
with gold star happy-go-lucky bullshit for me

a life without a meaning will fuck you til you're dead
a carousel is spinning
with paycheck petty work duty bullshit for me

i can't be what i see
Track Name: epilogue
you can say what you want to say
but you i know better
you know i know better
i know

that every inside joke erodes

you can say what you want to say
but you i know better
you know i know better
i know

that this day's an obituary
an epilogue of once-eternal green
