Track Name: SEA THROUGH
swimming in the clothes i wore to bed
salty smell all in my head
see-through and your laugh still echoing
as i tread underneath the semi-sea

the rat in my hair
the dog in your eyes
crawl to take root in
the thick of my thighs

spanish tan line i wish never faded
spoke soft spoke slow spoke bad
see-through and your laugh still echoing
as i tread underneath the semi-sea

the rat in my hair
the dog in your eyes
crawl to take root in
the thick of my thighs

and, i tried
to get the rat out my hair
get the dog out your eyes
can't see anywhere
the sun's got me all blind

Track Name: DEBBIE
Debbie get your head right somebody's watching you
Don't let the modern pulse get the best of you
Better to kill those dreams yourself than let somebody else
Debbie pull yourself up. No good sleeping
You're the closest thing to real will I feel that way
years from now?
Hardly think I'm ready for a lifetime under your spell
Nanny thinks I'm Debbie I'm eight years old and ready
to live through the 90's like I will turn out fine
and all it is is number after number on the number line
I might be nothing but nothing can negate me
I am a nobody but nobody can break me.
Hard times though you can't remind me if you tried
Guess I put it in the back of my mind
I'm just your baby much as you are mine
and the world's just a hole right between my eyes
Stuck on the road between your world and mine
I'm moving to New York to disorient my mind
it's the only place that I can feel so far away and so close to home
Hard times though you can't remind me if you tried
I'm sorry I'm sorry
guess I put it in the back of my mind
I'm just your baby much as you are mine
and the world's just a hole right between my eyes
I might be nothing be nothing but nothing can negate me
I am a nobody but nobody can break me
Track Name: GIVE/TAKE
For twenty years, give or take
I haven’t seen that stream pass its ways
Out of the garbage’s damn damaging
And there are bellows while rummaging
Oh, they’re placing them two by two
Followed by arms tightly in arms
They’re taking their clothes off so quietly
In the darkness by the ferry
And they’ve said their words one by one
Taking chances with water guns
Under broken homes with broken tales
You see their skin turn to scales
For twenty years, give or take
I haven’t seen that life in many days
Twenty years
Twenty years
Track Name: YOU KNOW THAT I DONT LOVE YOU
hey hey honey you say I make you blush
hush hush darling this aint no teenage crush
you know I don't love you
this time I know it's true

the way you curl your lips around a cigarette
I want to make you feel like we've never met
you know I don't love you
this time I know it's true

and it's a hard hard way to be
to base your life around a guy like me
don't you see

there is no heart that is true and pure
there's no saving me and of this I'm sure
you know I don't love you
this time I know it's true
Track Name: GIRL SCOUT HONOR
i've had the same room for a while
bed wettings and night terrors and sex dreams
in the span of 18 years

i'm holding onto things i've had forever
scratched cds and vhs tapes
and thin mint boxes

i hold up my three fingers
and swear to the girl scout honor

i don't know why i try
i don't think that i try
i don't know why i try to savor this
Track Name: ARROW-EYED
It's gotten to the point
where you resemble a knife,
Sharp and arrow-eyed.
I'm bound and calcified

So come cut me out of here

It's gotten to the point
if I had any brains at all
I'd already have tried
to get you on my side

So come cut me out of here
It's clear that I fear you
Track Name: IDIOT
I was born under a bright strong sun
I know charisma
And I know fun
(and ur no fun)

How many souls can you possibly consume
Before you're fixed
And I can sleep back in your room
(not too few)

When are you going to realize that all these idiots
Who want to help you
Are going to help you
Even if you don't want them to

When I went far away from your off-white, bare walls
I still wrote you
When you finally called I was standing in the snow
Barefoot and throwing up

I could spend a whole day
talking around the moon
Like a book-smart fool
Or a dreamer 2

All that's left of my mystery
Is transparency and misery
Why won't you date me
Why do you hate me
.
Track Name: TWO HOURS
you know it sucks
when you're stuck in a rut
you know it sucks
when your friends well they ain't up

cause they're two hours ahead
yea they're two hours in their beds
two hours in your head and that leaves you nowhere
Track Name: THE DOGS
i saw a guy drive by
with two puppies on his lap
they made it so he couldn't
see the road
and he drove up on the grass
seemed like a fair trade
two dogs for a dirty car
and i wish you could have seen
the dogs and everything
Track Name: SHIT HAPPENS
when what's on your mind
isn't what was wrapped up in sheets last night
that's fine
just don't screw up again
Track Name: IT AIN'T WEIRD IF IT WORKS
feel the highway
feel it blurring on again
old nebraska
old nebraska never ends

we're driving on so long
we're seeing things
an oasis in my dreams
of gasoline & mac n cheese

and it's really not absurd
cause it ain't weird if it works

see the mountains
see them rising up ahead
getting tired
oh we've got nothing left to spend
Track Name: HYDROCHLORIC
let it sit stagnant and cold
just like the thoughts i hold

don't be so goddamn naive
i've felt my corpse
merging with the leaves
and i'll say

it's the same shit different day
and my blood is a darker shade of grey
hydrochloric dreams call my name

dead trees looming over me
and we are one in the same

it all ends up sounding alike
and i'll remain in the trench i dug
in my scoured brain
i hear you say

it's the same shit different day
and my blood means nothing today
hydrochloric dreams call your name
Track Name: EMPTY HOUSE
I feel like I'm living all alone
pretending no one's home
last night I fell asleep on the couch
with shoes and jeans
all the lights are getting dim
but I think it's in my head
another word under my skin again

My timeline confuses me
forgetting who I used to be
I wish I could see my life before I felt this way
Depressing everyone is the last thing in my plans tonight
