Track Name: Do You Mind
I never got real far
I never tried too hard
I never drove a car
legally I never wanted to
basically I never wanted to
not often out past dark
I never raise the bar
basically I never want to
and I never really need to

do you mind
if I'm not finding
my mind a worthy subject
for analysis

psychoanalyze this
I've been paralyzed
by this sense of grief
guilt tears away at me
every day it stares back at me
all I need's this
all I need's this
Track Name: Nothing But Time To Kill And Bad Habits
Nothing But Time To Kill
And Bad Habits
Bad Habits
Track Name: Another Bad Girl Wont Do You Good
family sitting in wondering when's when
I was in the bathroom with my struggle
I wasn't new
"I don't know what I'm doing"
I wasn't new
I had never been sicker

so good
no good

I wasn't meant to discover
I wasn't meant to understand
I wasn't made to be your lover
I was nothing but another man

so good
no good

I never wanted to ask your hand
"another bad girl won't do you good"
I never wanted to learn to stand
I'm not about to crawl to your truth

so good
no good
Track Name: Little Debbie Dabble
you give me something
to take the edge off of my mind
my life
my mind

it only hurts for a minute
yeah
that's just a lie
you're told you don't need much
yeah
that's just a lie

as little Debbie dabbles a little bit
little Debbie dabbles
as little Debbie dabbles a bit
little Debbie dabbles
Track Name: Hair Teeth And Nails
sometimes
life's like
they sprinkled on the cinnamon
things seem sweet
before you know they're bittering

severing things you like
what about me most likely is to survive
hair
teeth
nails on a chalkboard

sometimes
life's like
they sprinkled on the cinnamon
things seem sweet
before you know they're bitter
and of all the things you like
what about me most likely is to survive

sometimes
life's like
they sprinkled on the cinnamon
things seem sweet
before you know they're bitter
and severing things you like
what about me most likely is to survive
hair
teeth
nails on the chalkboard
Track Name: Somewhere Between The Lines
as I wake up on all
the leaves and grass
I don't have a way
to leave this impasse
I don't care where I go
I know I'll stay in today
where I'll open windows
and all the doors blow away

I seem to see
what the fuck I want to see
I want to dream
more dreams than I ever dreamed before
I don't know where I fit
somewhere between the lines
I don't know where I fit

I don't know all about
the games that the dead play
or the consoles made
counselors animate
the rich will rake it in

I seem to see
what the fuck I want to see
I want to dream
more dreams than I ever dreamed before
I don't know where I fit
somewhere between the lines
I don't know where I fit
Track Name: Dont Give Up
give up yourself
give up yourself
give up yourself
that's her calling
yeah you better answer it

give up yourself
give up on yourself
give up on yourself
give it up to a higher calling
it's the answer

give up your body
give up on your body
give up on your body
don't love it any less
like you only could
Track Name: 3 Billion To Go
it shined on me
and it's the sun rays
soil this dark
you'll never see the grass stains
closer now
lend the earth an ear
hear the ocean of your own fear

you're such a good listener
one down
three billion to go

blasted sharp
like gunning for an ash tray
gone plant food
ester of me the nitrate
a loan to live the life down here
short a soul
to sold dried tears

you're such a good listener
one down
three billion to go

as Creve Coeur twists up into the sky
Macomb flakes out
I want to be a city
superficial
and I'm still here
...
just stay the fuck out

you're such a good listener
one down
three billion to go
Track Name: Shes A Warlock Im A Witch
she is a warlock
and I'm a witch
and we are pregnant
with all that encompasses
it's the end of the world
and it's all we ever wanted

she is a warlock
and I'm her witch
and we're together
at the expense
of a world we created
and set out to destroy
this whole planet
built a world
make it up
created for each other
we'll collapse

she is a warlock
and I'm a witch
hers is a curse
mines a hex
that's the expense
of the world we created
built up for each other
we'll destroy this whole planet
build a world make it up
created for each other
we'll collapse
this whole fucking useless planet
Track Name: Point Of No Return
I have a crush on myself
let me adjust myself
can't even trust myself
better to give myself
any less than what's mine
do you like those parts
I have not forgot
I am half all gone

I have lost myself
I was found by a star
never got too good
never get real far
I have lost this time
I never had this time before
I have crossed the line
I would never redraw it all

drying off my mind
and I have processed time
I better impress
you're fucked
you never cross a crook

pouring another drink
I am never repaired
a witness to much worse
memories here
I am not too pure
you are not unkind
crying with my light off
biding borrowed time

drying off my mind
and I have processed time
I gotta impress
you're fucked
you never cross a crook
