Track Name: Spiders
Bleeding hearts are by bodies abhorred
undue reverence I stored for you
pours out and courses down toward
the same body of air that we draw from the same one we've always done now makes you sicker than sick

(Instrumental 4 bars)

Kicking this in the dark lanes
of the early 13
and you'll never know how much
all of this hurts me
my veins ache with pressure
it lessens sometimes
my skin is a mood ring I wear all the while
you as an idol is me as a trial
all I want's a perfect body
or a less ugly mind
all I want's 2 perfect bodies
one of yours and one of mine
I slam doors in your house
you won't stop killing spiders
what looks like another (Chord change)
red swollen and bloody
bull muscle, bull muscle bull muscle
when you're golden afflicted aflame is a bellows that
swells up and swallows and bleeds out unstayed

if bleeding hearts are in bodies at all
I'm trying hard to ignore how hard I'm trying to talk with with you
Track Name: Nervousaurus Rex ft. Benjamin Longman
I've been known to lose my shit over so much less than this
I'm sorry if I'm always negative
Pride turned on us, sold us out, fucked us up
just like all the good weapons did

and I want so bad for you to like me again I'd do anything
I want so bad for you to like me again I'd do anything

No further fervour felt, so you can all go to hell
Took all the good medicine
The given ghost, the good old shames like it persists, pervades, prevails
Like tasting bleach in everything

This is not me telling you I'm sorry in the dying minutes of a shitty year again
I thought for an awful long time, then I lied and said "Time will pass, things will change"

and I want so bad for you to like me again I'd do anything
I want so bad for you to like me again I'd do anything
Track Name: Haley
Haley Haley Haley
show me solar patience,
savage incandescent strip fluorescent light

Haley under cheap shades, bloodshot in the street
I slip a couple killers, i can sleep all night

Threats of lesser harbingers still hang above you,
rise like milky smoke into the dirty sky

Haley smash the windows, new birth through the pane glass
where I drag behind me a weak and vicious heart

Talking to your mother, weep not little wound
Her, first to celebrate you down here in the dark

Terra; terra firma, hurt, like when I heard her
try to shake the feeling we should be apart

Burn your silhouette into the ground around you
I know I'll be sexy now until I die

Sick now to your back teeth Haley Haley Haley
We're all pills and patience, we're out on a high
Track Name: Sucks Blood
no seat of feeling a pump
no great bull muscle we bloodied up much
me, I never meant to hurt anyone

I break my own skin, I dream about love
a fear upon hearts each time I wake up
you are the body of air I've always drawn from

Shook like dead cell-beleaguered leaves under seasons eager to shift
Believed a perfect courage waited there but it didn't exist
now a distant city shrinks and voices fall

weighed up the sum of hurt we caused against the sum of hurt we felt
these are the thankless works of enmity that make a living hell
the delusion of the permanence of beauty and the slow, dark march of health

and it's shake, shake, sweat, wait out the night
shame and terror over alright
me i get nothing, me I get nothing right

because you are the unfeeling mass that I call to, you are the muscle I march alongside
You are the sure great shakes that I'll waste against when my body Wrecks and I die

Wait maybe they won't forget you
Wait maybe they won't forget you
Wait maybe they won't forget you this time

Wait maybe they won't forget you
Wait maybe they won't forget you
Wait maybe they won't forget you this time

and you're right it's another great waste of our time
hit the double-one sun with the sunrise
suffer too much from a good time
I try, make like the fucking ballet every night
you know how to whither me just right
like what have we done that's been worthwhile
just got to hold tight when we're breaking our skin on the cream tile
tear ourselves down to the hard white all of our friends waiting outside

and it's shake, shake, sweat, wait out the night
shame and terror over alright
me i get nothing, me I get nothing right

because you are the unfeeling mass that I call to, you are the muscle I march alongside
You are the sure great shakes that I'll waste against when my body Wrecks and I die
Track Name: Wrestlers
They told me not to lock myself indoors with you
but you fight me in my absence when you get bored
everyone adores you, everyone adores you
there's a cure for conscience, thought an caution
standing at the door to your room

and you know I hate to bring this up before you
like we have the guts to stomach all that heart
and everyone adores you, like everyone adores you
but you are not the wrestler I met here in the dark

and I hate when you let me know how much I bore you
like all i've got's a couple bloody knees
like everyone endures me, like everyone endures me
and all my little wrestling injuries

and you know I don't go winning belts in welterweight
when I wrestle with myself all night again
and though I sweat blood to get love
the empty never lets up
and I'm stone cold and ready to begin
Track Name: Oliver
I was lacking oxygen
you were living off of the
last two shards of Oliver
all your love for Oliver

You tore down my calendar
Sarah says she's sorry but
two years late, the promise was
all your love for Oliver

You can talk an awful lot
I don't want to talk to her
don't care to apologise
all my love for Oliver

I am not a lover
I am not a doctor
if you tell me where it hurts
I might love you all over

I was born across from a church
and in the morning it felt like it was falling because the clouds were moving behind
clouds were moving behind

I was lacking oxygen
you were living off of the
last two shards of Oliver
all your love for Oliver
Track Name: Bull Muscle
I pretend you never showed me
how you swell up inside
like the start of a house fire burning
is it true?
does the pressure build up to an absolute
Bull muscle stretched underneath you
no bust-knuckled boy ever became your true love
but what light the high beams breathed into you was enough

I can only imagine
it does too much to me, the way that that muscle must be
Be an insular world and a conquering new queen

what light the algernon sun brings
we stick to your plan, a beautiful thing
oh it's a joke about death and a dance in high beams

Oh the equal night ends and nothing has changed
live up to your threats but so far away
I become a throat
it's one raw with air
air and dirty snow
summer comes smash the windows
