Track Name: Bridgeburner (ft. Knots)
Hello, nice to meet you
Let me hear all about your job
Goodbye, hope to see you
Never again in this lifetime, oh my God

You talk and talk and talk and talk and talk and talk and talk and talk about your dental plan
I wait and pause and watch the clock and hope that you'll stop droning on why can't you understand?
I HOPE YOUR TEETH FALL OUT

You built your life on concrete while I built mine on the sand
The foundations of your neighborhood are as safe as they are bland
So follow the leader
Follow don't question why

Jonathan just shut your face why do you think I care?
About your interview with your company where they brought you to Outback Steakhouse for a beer...

You built your life on concrete while I built mine on the sand
The foundations of your neighborhood are as safe as they are bland
So follow the leader
Follow don't question why
Track Name: Shook (ft. RGP)
Tattoos crawling all up her sleeves
Crimson lipstick with the eyeliner wings
Cold stare gazing nonchalantly
But when she smiles at me I forget how to breathe

I hadn't seen her in at least 3 years
Since her arms were bare and so austere
Warm eyes flashing fervently
Still when she smiled at me I forgot how to breathe

I have to know
Is this a figment?
Brought from my past
Come to haunt me and rattle all my cages I'm shook

I want to know if I can live like this again
Give me something real that I can hold
Track Name: Read Starburst
I still have the red Starburst that you got me for my birthday last May
And I still have the Kindle but now I hate to read
When I turn the page I always see your face

Was it age?
Was it distance?
The sum of both too great to make you stay

Is it love?
Is it anguish?
To hope that this goddamn Kindle breaks
I hope it fucking breaks

(some ooo's and shit go here)

24, kinda selfish
Knowing you're too good for goodness sake
26, kinda desperate
The world keeps telling you there's no time to waste or it'll be too late

I say fuck the world and everyone
Let their expectations fall into the sky
We'll be fine defined by us alone
On an island eating starburst till we throw up red

These words don't narrate anything
These plots progress prosaically
On a tablet that you gifted, my thoughts are always shifted to the Paperwhite between my fingertips

Focus has been lacking
Brain's always unpacking
Emptying the remnants of the months that we both shared

The pages will keep turning. Your absence will stop burning. I will learn to love to read again. The pages will keep turning. Your absence will stop burning. I will learn to love to read again.

I will learn to love to read again

I will learn to love to read again
Track Name: Weir(dos)
I still don't think I'm weird at all I still just think I'm complicated
No more wishing for someone to vibe me in my natural stasis
Take me as I see myself don't ask me to accommodate
Would rather watch The Mummy with Ben Frasier than pontificate

IMOHTEP IMOHTEP (Anuksanamun)
IMOHTEP IMOHTEP (Anuksanamun)

There's so much more to this that they will never know
Don't cast me off just quite so easily
I'm lying through my teeth when I miss all their calls
Excuses plunging out to flood your words and all I hear is, "IMOHTEP"
Track Name: Whatever'd
Evading the truth
Answers forthcoming can never stop running like
What's my intent?
The reason my soul has been stuffed in this bag of bones

When you don't know your place in life
Tired and severed forever whatever'd
Just look straight up toward the sky
And scream at the top of your lungs,
"I'll be fine"

Advice is always easier to give
We're listening for answers while finding the shapes in the clouds
See how they turn
From the purest of whites to the darkest glow of concern

When you don't know your place in life
Tired and severed forever whatever'd
Just look straight up toward the sky
And scream at the top of your lungs,
"I'll be fine"
Track Name: End (highly ft. Ian Archibold)
We live in a cesspool, a septic tank, a gigantic sewage complex in which runs the dregs, the filth, the misery-laden slop of the race of men: his hatred, prejudices, passions, and violence. And the keeper of this sewer: man. He is a scientifically advanced monkey who walks upright, with eyes wide open into an abyss of his own making. His bombs, fallout, poisons, radioactivity everything he designs as an art for dying.
