Track Name: Take a Tour
come on over take a tour
don't forget to close the door behind you to keep out all unwanted guests
take whatever you can find
if you are that way inclined
i've got better things to do than clean up my own mess.
bloodshot eyes, it's no surprise
pushed my head into your chest.
what's that look on your face? i can't tell
is it pride or pity
or a blend of all things shitty
Track Name: Empty Tobacco Pouches
so here i am with all the components of fun,
friends alcohol music but still im having none
oh how it used to be
oh how it used to be
or at least what my foggy memory tells me
are you interested
or do you just enjoy holding others' interest
i'm gonna go home and make sculptures out of bladders of wine
and empty tobacco pouches
in you i feel something of importance existing
i could kiss you but actually
i'd kiss the idea of who i want you to be
Track Name: Uni Punks
drab fabrics in the autumn clothe chips on the shoulders of angry boys with something to prove
and will the girls look at you when you scribble shyly with your pen,
acting detached and self amused
but in the lecture hall
the world doesnt seem small
at least that's what's supposed to happen
well if you say so
i think since you last saw me i found a new philosophy i'm an anti anti
anti clicheist
but in the lecture hall
the world doesnt seem small
at least that's what's supposed to happen
well if you say so
i flirt with the underclass in my spare time
i stare into space more often than i need to
drab fabrics in the autumn clothe chips on the shoulders of angry boys with something to prove
Track Name: Almost Spiritual Communion
abandon all hope all ye who enter her
her lips are pretty prison guards that lure somehow
abandon all hope all ye who enter her
this is where you disappear
where you go i don't really care
what could i even say
that wouldn't let this moment decay around us
i think it's found us
you will be ugly when you're old
that cheek will sag
your dead feet'll drag that life behind you
you will be ugly when you're old
this is where you disappear
where you go i don't really care
what could we even say
without letting this moment decay
around us i think it's found us
Track Name: Friends with Sickness Benefits
tell me pretty little lies
i like them shown to me
wrap it up in paper and
justifications
i met you at some party or show through the chance of social network's ebb and flow
kind of like two sims characters being played by other people bumping into each other
we're all so indiscreet and there's bloodstains on our sheets
keep rubbing it in until it's ink etched in our skin
you made me fried eggs on toast at the feast where we ignored the ghost
of what could happen but what just won't, without either of us telling the other one "don't"
i'm pushing rocks to the top of hills with peaks that can't help but spill
watch them topple, fall and roll and eat into your soul
it's funny when people become the very thing you used to mock together
it's funny when people become the very thing you used to mock together
i'm pushing rocks to the top of hills with peaks that can't help but spill
watch them topple, fall and roll and eat into your soul
it's funny when people become the very thing you used to mock together
it's funny when people become the very thing you used to mock together
thank god i've got so many friends with sickness benefits
Track Name: Windowsill
i saw you leaning out of your windowsill
staring at train tracks through cigarette smoke
now it's a lie. now it's a lie for you to keep
think of ways to flee the days and all that they bring
he opened up the room of your mind,
ate some cheese and poured some wine
just to leave and disperse his seed in some brainless beauties
Track Name: Dump no Waste, Flows to Sea
feet stamp on sodden floorboards
when we open up the front door
cobwebs in the corners where the ceiling meets the wall
i remember when we
played around the backyard estuary
but when i see black mould on the floor i know that i'll have to protect
that memory
from the dust
picking through your old possessions
on the lawn with the procession
chinese tea sets and photos of grim ancestors won't fill up the hole
but i'd be lying to myself if i said it didn't help
i'd be lying to myself if i said it didn't hurt
