I sink too much
I cannot love
I cannot trust
you can't hide anything
you can't have everything
it's kind of hard to explain to you
Track Name: Mote (Sonic Youth cover)
2007
Track Name: Bad Movies
(2007)

winding streaks leaving stains
black stains I don't think I want to clean
nursed for days
I will read with the Earth rotation
my gums are bleeding and my cheeks are chewed through
I never ever said that I'd miss you

go away

real words
that start with "r"
like reflection like refraction
but not friction
make a verse with little sense
and I don't miss it
don't you know I lived with ninjas
back behind me doing flips up the walls
I'm not much for gymnastics
if you ask me nice I might do a cartwheel fantastic

go away
(go go go)
Track Name: Culture Dish Soldier
(2007)

white coats and lights
jump drive equations
right on schedule
destruction imminent
impotent and mutual

a new war a new front
a locked door is not enough
a new future new time
I lose my patience as I watch you lose your mind

in a parking garage of the wealthiest mansion
radio stations
the chemicals flow
lever fever forever

a new war a new front
a locked door is not enough
a new fuse a new time
I lose my patience as I watch you lose your mind
Track Name: Airplane Glue
I've been locked in a lonely torment
I've been told all about you
I've been lost in another's moment
almost seem to be torn in two
torn into
I'll stitch myself back together
I've got some airplane glue

I've been lost in another's moment
and I'm finding out through you
something else about me
I started with deceiving
but I was the only one fooled
and I am the only fool
and now I'm just seeing
and I'm just now seeing

sell the empathy for food
see if I can change your mood
buying all the lies you might
feel the hunger for life subside
this is how the team gets beat
its no team to be on

I've been lost in another's moment
and I'm finding out through you
something else about me
I started with deceiving
but I was the only one fooled
and I am the only fool
and I'm just now seeing
that I'm just now seeing

all that I've been before
is a sell out lowly whore
all the darkness all discern
(as the darkness never fades)
it started with a big bright light
(as I burned out day by day)
tunnel to bring me into this arm
of the western wing with the prison gaurds
and the noose they all wait
to put on to impress their boss

I'm hanging out in a hanger
broken in two
waiting on my application of airplane glue
I'm hanging out in a hanger
leave me hanging on you
every word you say sticking to me
with the glue inhaled makes
a wishing well waiting unfulfilled
with hopes and water
or all the pennies taken to the bank
like frozen embryos from mom
and dad's broken nose
because he don't really want to be
or really know how to be
a father

sell an arm a leg or two
buy a higher state of mind
where I can see you anytime
if I just wanted to
that's what I'm gonna do
not sure if you ever had the chance
to make a choice to come back
I'll find some peace in having that
sometimes you just gotta laugh
with all the power we don't have to be
no we don't have to be
torn into half
Track Name: Losing You

Track Name: Monkey On Your Back
(2007)

and it rains away

Track Name: Plot Hole
(2007)

a couple pages back
I'm stuck replaying a plot hole
I've made it this far
it don't matter how I got here
I learned a little being civil
taking up a habit in high school
share it back and forth
or you can borrow it, it's cool
bury me

a couple bottles down
with the swivel of a broken bar stool
blow the candles out
and the smell of wax will take you back home
I learned a little being civil
taking up a habit in high school
share it back and forth
or you can borrow it, it's cool
bury me

a couple pages back
I'm stuck in a plot hole

everything I need to cook with, the ingredients

spiders in my hair why do I bother
spiders in my hair why do I bother
maybe I'll wrap a string on one song
maybe I'll sell it to you for one dollar

what is the source
of the senseless
it's not senseless is it

maybe I can write our songs on one string
maybe they sound like the foo fighters
maybe they sound like nick cave
leave out the words and what does it matter
I've got martyrs from mars in my head
I'm not a martyr if I cut off my tongue
maybe I'll write our songs on one string
maybe I'll sell them to you for one dollar

what is the source
of the senseless
it's not senseless is it
maybe I'll write
maybe I'll write

what is the source
of the senseless

like highlights magazine

fun
fun with a purpose

it's all about the meaning
well there's no meaning

just think when you think
you've heard it all
and you've had it up to here
heard all there is to hear
it's never finished
it's never like a sentence
with a little period of punctuation

fun
fun with a purpose

it's all about the meaning
well there's no meaning
if there's no fun
well there's no meaning
if there's no fun
Track Name: Intention Was
(2008)

intend to
come home

that's how the beatles got their start
a grunge guitar won't bring you jesus
Track Name: Best Face Forward
(2009)

we tell ourselves
there's no way of knowing
theres no way of doing
over again
we tell ourselves
it might not be so bad
to do it again

I wash my mouth out
with soapy solution
I now watch my mouth
with eyes peeled
from evolution

an improper dose of
solicited medication
leads to necrosis of my skin
I'm all gross now
alien face lift
I'll be ok to do it again

it's all in memory of my mind
it's all in memory of

like someone set a snare
for our top tier talent
and I'm sitting in a tree stand

I know we're all just dreaming

it's all in memory of
a sullen memory of
it's all in memory of my mind
it's all in memory of

shoveling shit inside of holes in brain scans
it shouldn't be the sheer size of this
same old contagions
holding hands inside of holes in brain scans
you shouldn't be communicating disease

(2010)

I don't know why I don't feel

sight of what's real
sight of you

I don't know why I don't feel
I don't know if I can fit
