Track Name: Breathe Deep
I messed up because I missed it
Thought I’d try in case I licked it
Pushing testing well adjusted old pro
Simple task wasn’t worth it
Show me love and I’ll murk it
This whole thing isn’t working
Guess what

Back in the shit now
Breathe deep
We’re in the shit now

You’re always sweet
Why don’t you go a little flat
Give the drummer some
And his two hi-hats

Settle in lift the ladle
Bathe yourself in what god gave you
Lazy state of fuck off resting that’s what
Can’t be my own policeman
So I sink to completion
You don’t just die without some practice
That’s why

We’re back in the shit now
Breathe deep
We’re in the shit now

You’re always sweet
Won’t you go a little flat
Give the drummer some
And his two hi-hats
We really oughta get at least a bronze
Can’t help but drag the beat of the same old song
Track Name: No One's Going Home
(Chorus)
No one's going home
Chaperone was wrong
You'd love someone to help you out
They left you on your own
Now leave them/Believe it

You're telling me a lie
You say you want it black and white
Those little lullabies
Are gonna be your demise

(Chorus)

You wanna keep the light
Of what everyone's stressing alive
Well I've got a compromise
You can tell them you're satisfied

(Chorus)

Don't wait for me
Truly stuck no landing
This life is serpentine
I wanna wipe it clean
If only

(Chorus)
Track Name: Last One
I messed up went away
I get crazed in this sense parade
I ask you please
That's a low for me
The love it comes
Like a record in three

(Chorus)
Oh last one
Here's to peace love and lapses
Last one

So tell me something
I wanna hear
Have you been bluffing
And spreading cheer
I can feel my fate
I'll clean the plate
I pay to play
Hooray
I willed myself awake

(Chorus)

The goal is black
Black is clean
Come on baby
Jump ship with me
Flashback to last zodiac
So long
Gives me the patience you love so much

(Chorus)
Can we choose
Oh just a little something
In this wind it up world
Peace love and lapses
Last one
Track Name: Let Ya Back
I won't let ya back
Unless you say it's what you want
If I do my foot down stunt
Then you know it's a front
Let's not break a sweat
My little Percocet
We could live a life like a comedown cigarette
Quite rightly you suggest
That the real men come correct

Never get away
Always on display
Can't hang up the phone
And the light is on

I try to please myself
Heaven's the last thing I could want for help
No one gets nothing
And the vastness of the blackness
Makes you look so beautiful
Some love is somatic
Bodies static weigh upon me so I'll

Never get away
Always on display
Can't hang up the phone
And the light is on

In love with a world
So cold and absurd
I could just lose my cool
Cause I crave the rules

Never get away
Who wants to be a comma
Always on display
Yeah I wanna live forever
Can't hang up the phone
Try and find the only one
And the light is on

Fried wasteland
Prized placement
Embrace the wave collapsing
Track Name: Home in This
A solar plexus sucker punch
Faking slang line up for lunch
Steel my eyes to protect somehow
I'm taken back by what's allowed

A dumb lick for slipping
Adolescents with the red tint vision
Oh yeah they're stalking in the streets

I diagrammed your young demise
I'm reeling from what I've realized
Pep rally to emphasize it
Ice julep for 50 cents
Bikes stolen and kissing kids
A bad haircut for which to get nostalgic

Days lost
Sweating through the duller moments
Oh orange light fading
It's turning in on me

Oh we're in a good place now
Adult fashions savvy actions now
Strange that it took so long
No backtracking doubt is taxing
We're achieving now

Thirteen years and some odd months
Lifting weights to serve those cunts
You'll pay for what you've done to me
Martial arts and pedigree
The only things that comfort me
Faking stoned and wandering the party

Praise the ground
Steady level flat ass town
Will I won't I
Find a home in this
Track Name: Look Alive
Look alive bunny eyes
Single file in a great big spine
Travel light just might
Explode on sight
Well alright
Pack a lunch and a careless smile

(Chorus)
Back into a world I've known
But never call this home
Is this real life
Am I stoned

When we lie
Sell ourselves eternal life
Death defy
Death is life being polite
It makes god smile
And not cause it's right
But he likes to spite a weakling child

(Chorus)
Track Name: Uppercut
Honey pick it up
Do the uppercut
Will you won't you
Teach me police me
We're coming upon
A love too long
Don't hang up
While we die I'll atone

Love's in the way
You take a mistake
Pretend it's fate
And something real
Well I'm a proselyte today

I can play too
I mean I wanna love you
To come true might be too much
So I'm just gathering dust
Believing in the end

Love's in the way
You take a mistake
Pretend it's fate
And something real
Well I'm proud to be devout
Something real

God oh please
Put the fear in me
I'm doubting all I see
Is this what you want
Come one shut me up
I bet you don't
