Track Name: Pick Pocketed
who knew, the easy ride is through
I need my memory erased
and every hardwood room is throwing catalysts my way.
for every pick-up line there is no opportunity
cause downward eyes are slow
and up in the air.
my pockets are a running dog team and they bite.
our wrenches can entwine and tighten us at the waist
we'll rip through every wound
unsullied we become
Track Name: Black Cat Aqueduct Tunnel Blues
hold my hand
and tell me I'm not dead
just like the ones before you did
if I seem controlling
it's cuz you asked me to control myself
pour myself into a glass
and the glass hits the floor
if I'm self defeating it's cuz you asked me to defeat myself
and if this loneliness is killing you, honey
kill yourself
I can feel you fuckin' him
through the power lines
you wanna know if I'm lonely
but you gotta know where I am
I went down, down the black cat tunnel
all the way down
where the tide is in
and the flame flickers out
you gotta know if I'm lonely
but you gotta know where I am
ahh, if it's not where you are, honey
you don't give a damn
if I seem controlling it's cuz you asked me to control myself
if I'm self defeating it's cuz you asked me to defeat myself
ahh, and if my lovin' ain't good enough for ya, honey
you can go fuck yourself
Track Name: Ghost Friend
can you eat my candy hands?
the bare-boned bird-like
slowed down film
is all too real to me,
ghost friend.

can you eat my candy hands,
ghost friend,
who leaks life lessons?
go out, get a job,
ghost friend.
my mind inside
can't hold a candle
to the magnets pushing out.

I have a ghost friend
with a siren smile
and a reason why not.
I have a ghost friend.

can you eat my candy hands?
the bare-boned bird-like
slowed down film
is all too real to me,
ghost friend.
ghost friend,
my mind inside
can't hold a candle
to the magnets
pushing
out.
Track Name: Bone Dry
my body is bone dry
i'm pissin' crystals
my body is bone dry
i got eye sockets i got marbles
i'm about as deep as this here puddle
but you're gonna drown girl
my body is bone dry
where's my sense o' spectra?
my body is bone dry
give me a list a road map a rectangle a number
i'm about as deep as this here puddle
but you're gonna drown girl
i woke up pick pocketed in a puddle of piss and vinegar
and here i am, a grown-ass man
suffocating in my own immune system
everyone
needs a villain
which i'm happy to provide
but every inch
of this body here
is bone dry
it's bone dry
Track Name: Dead Beat
don't take away everyones personal oasis
strapped with uncanny sock traps stacking
sugar trains up their nose
you know that they'll just open up
and tear away inside
you twisted it
rummaging a black and faded summer dress to say hello
to the dead beat people
or the people on pause
