Track Name: Salmon Sunday
I’m being choked

From wafts of human waste

I am bound, to this seat

No escape, And

There’s no end to

The Sprawl

You’ll fight to protect a rusty spoon

All these bricks

will fix nothing

No mortar or stone

will make me

Call this place

this place home

All these snakes

come crawling out.

There aren’t enough

Lizards to feed all of them

I’ll gladly watch you short circuit

Confused as to where to buy your

Produce and meat you can’t have both

a suburb and no gringo

intervention
Track Name: Perpetual Embarrassment
The sun doesn’t set on cat eye glasses

Nor trichinosis patients with dwindling brains

Overthrown balls propagated by terrible owners

citizens who do nothing but complain

about the regime and show their complacency with their pocket

Why won’t things change,

Why won’t things change when I raise no real objection to what I’m being presented

with?

Why do I expect different results when the lattice is exactly the same?

Water will always continue to freeze at 32, not boil.

When things actually do go right, It’s because a broken clock is right twice a day.

I GO TO YOUR HOUSE

SUPER LATE AT NIGHT

I JUST WANT TO HAVE SEX

YOU JUST WANT TO TALK ABOUT CATS

AND I COULD CARE LESS ABOUT YOUR AWFUL TASTE

AND YOU COULDN’T CARE LESS ABOUT MY WORK

I’ve become one with the average Bengals fan.
Track Name: Jazzman
I don’t need no phone I can do that dot-dot-dot-dash

On the tip of the iceberg

I got my hair slicked back

We stand upon starboard side

For the one last time

You’ve got the makings of a tiger

So I’ll deem you Richard parker

So please sit on the opposite side of me

With my dress pants

And my black shirt

I have finally

got

my

foot in the door

But I’m worried

that on the other side

That the water tight

compartments are closing

They Always appear to be closing

And I can feel the oceans salt penetrating the sores on my legs

But as much as I want to stop

I realize that I have to keep,

keep on running.

And As the sun sets

I wish you could jog with me
Track Name: Toothpastry
Yeah She’s a babe

Colder than

an Ice salt bath

A book never read

Still loading forever

Magic meatball please do

Magic meatball I entrust all my decisions for good to you

Still loading forever

A good friend

once taught that

all nightmares

Are a

loss of control

Give it back to us

Bring back to us

give it back to us
Track Name: Pop Song in B
The mute button is always on

No words, no thoughts that change the song

Kill your parents

Worship their money

Yeah Whatever man

It would be comforting to see

The population hit (carrying) capacity

It’s so easy to fall in love

With any idea with pretty words

Strychnine chocolate for all the leaders

I have no problem introducing the phage

It’s getting colder

I want it colder

I want to freeze all

The local insects

Locusts swarm Ohio

Like a Biblical Plague

Invasive species come and kill off the grass

W/nutrients gone nothing ever grows

I’ve finally seen how Bickle is worshiped as a hero
Track Name: Dance Party
Every weekend this anxiety prescription needs to be refilled

All the goddamn restaurants are closed

And the salt and ice are eating the roads

Give the car a coat of Cleveland brown

Drape the city in hospice white

Don’t think too much don’t think too much

Shitty Dance tunes with only standing room

We’re glad the cops show up early

Scrambled eggs for scrambled brains

Increasing desire to leave this city
Track Name: The Nosebleeds
Hey Baseball

where have you been all this time?

Late one night

Mama told me

To stop caring about things

That don’t affect my life

Processed cheese

go to church for

Helmet ice cream

Got my mitt in my hand

Like any good Cincy boy

If warning tracks could save me

It should be right now

I think you are forever

Embedded in my brain

You are made of plastic

You won’t ever decay

And in 50 years I’ll still be bitter because

I wanted my own playground
