Track Name: I'm Coming Home
i've got more love than a semi-truck
when the rear engine explodes
like in final destination
i have not been loved in three whole years
but i distinctly recall getting fucked
and fucked over again
fucked and fucked over again
fucked and fucked over again
fucked and fucked over again

this is a throwback to my personal folklore
back to the summer where i acted like a whore
i am venomous and most heinous
my heart is caked in grime
lift up your pretty shirt and i'll confess
to you a war crime

i'm coming home
i'm coming home
empathy & apathy have taken everything from me
so i'm coming home

prescription pills have made me so catty
i had a dream about killing your daddy
i'm a plagiarist, i'm full of shit
and now everyone will see
i'm asking you to gently
impale my throat upon your knee

i'm coming home
i'm coming home
empathy & apathy have taken everything from me
so i'm coming home

i'm coming home
i'm coming home
empathy & apathy have taken everything from me
so i'm coming home
Track Name: Upbeat Buzzkill
i tried to meet your gaze
the sun was bleeding through the haze
i guess that waking up
is just a stupid phase

i put my ray-ban's on
to hide the donuts in my eyes
all bloodshot
and powdered

cause you are the sea
you know you're full of glee
but my name
spells mediocrity

and now my gloom is looming
i could see you fuming
you could cut through the smoke
with an electric guitar

we're like two kids on christmas eve
we're not to naive to deceive
anyone with a present

we're getting down and dirty
on the eleven-thirty
headed back towards the station

i was taught catholicism
but i live by nihilism
so i'm asking you to save me

you were getting down right flirty
some people say i am wordy
so i will read you a book
if you suck on my tongue

i wrote a love letter
but sometimes hate works better
are you the kind of girl
who never gets any wetter?

i live in a daydream
that exists on a moonbeam
oh my, oh my,
this is not what it seems

i'm a depressed mess
you're the fucking best
now there's a broken egg
falling out of a nest

and now there's nothing left for us
but you still can't ignore us
i can see you're bored
so here's a chorus

we're like two kids on christmas eve
we're not to naive to deceive
anyone with a present

we're getting down and dirty
on the eleven-thirty
headed back towards the station

i was taught catholicism
but i live by nihilism
so i'm asking you to save me

you were getting down right flirty
some people say i am wordy
so i will read you a book
if you suck on my tongue

i've been crowned
the king of shit
and you can be my queen
who's always lit

i'm starting to wish
that i was dead
i need a girl
who's always spread

you can smack my face
call me an asshole
i'm sorry if
this is becoming a hassle

i'm starting to feel
like i'm getting ill
i'm sorry that
i'm such an upbeat buzzkill

an upbeat buzzkill
an upbeat buzzkill
and not be a buzzkill
and not be a buzzkill
Track Name: This is a Robbery
followed by black skies
but cursed by green eyes
nobody gets a repeal
cause down in the city
things were getting so gritty
baby, we need time to heal
and i am such
an unbearable bore
so i will spare you all the guts and the gore

cause you're my flame
you keep me lit
i guess it's kinda sad
that candles have to eat their own wicks
it's just like when rodents
devour their young
you tied your noose
but you were pushed rather than hung
i
can
not
stop
this
so everybody get on the ground
this is not
a momentary lap in empathy
no
this is a robbery

the love lives of fruit flies
the way heart tissue dies
this isn't math
but oh, i wish that it were
cause i've been polluted
dredged up and diluted
like the hudson
from glens falls to new york
and i am such
and immaculate whore
for five more dollars i will show you the door

cause you're my flame
you keep me lit
i guess it's kinda sad
that candles have to eat their own wicks
it's just like when rodents
devour their young
you tied your noose
but you were pushed rather than hung
i
can
not
stop
this
so everybody get on the ground
this is not
a momentary lap in empathy
no
this is a robbery

how the hell do you expect me to play that game
when i don't know the rules, i am so fucking lame
i don't wanna die alone on a twin sized mattress
but that's where i'm gonna end up
if i don't accept fate
or learn to live without hate
just give me a second chance
i'm not too cool to dance

cause you're my flame
you keep me lit
i guess it's kinda sad
that candles have to eat their own wicks
it's just like when rodents
devour their young
you tied your noose
but you were pushed rather than hung
i
can
not
stop
this
so everybody get on the ground
this is not
a momentary lap in empathy
no
this is a robbery
Track Name: Hunky Junkie
this is a song
for sailors
about failures
with stars in your eyes
you looked just like
a jailer

she's my lover
i don't love her
maybe just like a brother
now we're twisted
on blotters
and fucking
each other

so why didn't your mother
ever tell you not to play with your food?
well, i am here to tell you:
hey, girl
that includes me too

they say your life is like a bottle of wine
it tastes better when you're well fed
but how am i supposed to get drunker at all
when all my role models are dead
and everyone
i've ever loved
may as well also be dead

now i'm picking my scabs
and doing the crab
cause this ain't no rehab
no
this is
a cash-grab

i'm so sick
so god damn sick
i acted like a dick
i'm sorry
i think
it's just a nervous tick

so are you the kind of girl
who thinks that junkies are so hunky
well, i've been clean and sober
for a year
but i think i could relapse for you

they say your life is like a bottle of wine
it tastes better when you're well fed
but how am i supposed to get drunker at all
when all my role models are dead
and everyone
i've ever loved
may as well also be dead

pick yourself up
mother fucker
cause i won't kill myself over you
no more
no more
cause i won't kill myself over you no more
i won't kill myself over you no more
i won't kill myself over you no more

they say your life is like a bottle of wine
it tastes better when you're well fed
but how am i supposed to get drunker at all
when all my role models are dead
and everyone
i've ever loved
may as well also be dead
Track Name: Evaporate
run away little girl
from your man
where darkness touches the woods
we will meet again
don't believe in love
it can let you down
but who's to stop us now
from having fun
fun
fun

i want to evaporate
i want to evaporate
into you

creatures will sing as we dance
in the dark
and that great bell will ring
in my head
i won't tell our friends anything
they don't already know
but now that boy's got a gun
point at me
me
me

i want to evaporate
i want to evaporate
into you

i want to
want to
evaporate
Track Name: I Tried (Not Hard)
i knew a boy
who went down to the city
he put a needle in his arm
now i don't see him no more
i had some friends
who stuck bills up their noses
they stuck them up to far
and now they don't come back out
my little sister
she asked me why do you hate me
well
i don't hate you
i'm just trying to deal with myself

i tried too hard to not try at all
i tried too hard to not try at all
i tried too hard to not try at all
i tried too hard to not try at all

i had a friend
he was more of an acquaintance
acquaintances come
but more often they go
i met a girl
and she took my virginity
now she's with another man
i know him only only from photographs
i had some drinks
and i had my friend's keys
i said, "fuck you all to hell"
i'm gonna go for a ride

i tried too hard to not try at all
i tried too hard to not try at all
i tried too hard to not try at all
i tried too hard to not try at all

i tried too hard to not try at all
i tried too hard to not try at all
i tried too hard to not try at all
i tried too hard to not try at all
