Track Name: Shone
Had a memory
the sun on my back
rotting in my clothes
I felt a tap

The terrible
is shone to me
in all its ugly forms

I had a century
but then I snorted
smack
The terrible is shone
to me
a flower on my plaque

Shone, Shone, Shone

Had a dream
a heart attack
nothing seems
to go right

For me,
its just a memory,
thats shone in roses thorns

I had an entity
but then I swelled crack
the terrible is shone to me
white powder on my black

The terrible is shone to me
in all its lovely forms

Shone, Shone, Shone
Shone
Track Name: I'm There
Become inside
I'm the rainbow
of your eye

Look inside,
and I'm there
Have a cry
and I'm there

Lets never forget
(red, blue, yellow, green, violet, orange, black, red)

Among the disguise
I'm the sailboat
of July

Look inside
and I'm there
Say goodbye,
and I'm there

Red, Blue, Yellow, Green, Violet, Orange, Black, Red
Track Name: Mountain Strange
I saw a mountain
look at me strange,
can't really blame her
speech was delayed

A missing poster
on a vine said
come home
its time.
I'm tired of waiting.

For you I'll do anything my heart desires.

You'll never guess where I am, its not pretty
I saw in the paper
said I'll pick you up if you're brave

And now I'm looking back in time,
wish I could redo
things I've learned to hate
I'm hitchhiking on the highway
with a bottle of wine
I can't behave

Now that I've stared evil in the face.
Track Name: Look
Look at the river
just something to look at
do you know my name
Look at my scars
just something to look at
do you know my age

A million people, getting older
do you know whats meaningful

Cause I'd like to know
what the river stands for
for me
Cause I'd like to know
What the river stands for
for me.

So step in and drown,
its okay,
you're still thinking about it.
So step in the sound
decay,
you're still thinking about it.

Look the asphalt
are you counting the words
on the page
Please just remember
its just a river
theres not much to do.

A million people, getting colder
do you know whats peaceful

Cause I hope you do know
what the river means to you
cause I hope you do know
what the river means to you

So step in and drown
its okay.
You're still thinking about it.
So step in the sound
decay.
You're still thinking about it.
Track Name: Than you Should know
If I said I needed space,
then give me everything;

I deserve it, I know.

The heart in the sacred chest,
and arrow, I deserve it I know

Better than I should, I know.
Better than I should.

We swear in the openness, the color pink
I bet you money the wind will blow
Although in your essence,
like a scarecrow

I'll bet you wish there is more to know
better than you should
bet you wish theres more to know
better than you should

Better than you should know.
Track Name: L'Oreal (Got Gum?)
You're slinging rubber bands
off your braces.
When you flip your hair it smells
like Chanel in the hallways
I'm still trying not to breathe,
but I can't breathe with you around me
Could keep my head above water
but that would be hard
when you're so near to me

I got gum, you want some?
Heres my number.
Ask me about missionary,
I'm a good a closer.

Kiss me
it's obvious I need your attention.

If I could meet your soul
at Applebee's
I'd tell it it deserves more than me.

You're swinging your bracelet wrists
around my neck
When you flip your hair it smells like L'Oreal
in the movies.
And I'm still trying not to breathe,
but I can't believe you're near me.
And I'm still chewing your ABC's
feel like your dictionary.

I'm so in Love.
Track Name: Revlon
Paint my skin
soul is black.
I feel no pain,
I take that back.
See, saw stones
whisper shield.
Drink my blood,
soul is healed.

And somehow I still believe in it.

I can only imagine
what it feels like
to feel things
the way you do
this could get me in trouble
I know it
I've got a plan B.

Slow my roll
I'm talking back.
I cary treasure
in my bag.
Shop lift stores
on the rag.
DRINK MY BLOOD.
And feel my wrath.

And somehow I still believe in it.

I can only imagine
what it feels like
to feel things
the way you do
this could get me in trouble
I know it
I've got a plan B.
Track Name: Looping Sarah
I wish
wish feels endless
said Sarah,
watching an eclipse
My loops
which feel endless
would go away,
but I'd miss them.

Wish I was sorry
while I touch my nose
and my chest.
The truth is this fits
come and go
wish you could know that
this all makes sense in my head
Here we go again,
listening to my loops.

The moon,
which is endless
looking for Sarah.
It's got all night.
My friend, wish I could fix you
a mirror,
but I'd miss you.
Tell tell me sorry when
you're just knocking things around in your head.
It's true its you, but thats just what you do.
Wish you could know that this all
makes sense in my head.
You're the moon, the moon is you
just like the loop said.
Track Name: Cheap Gems
They're of trouble
I know them
when I see them.
Their eyes
are cheap gems.
I can't wait to spend them.

I can't wait to spend them.
Track Name: Sex is Yellow
I see colors when you talk to me.
Sentences so cleverly.
How you been? Hows your family?
Whats bee on your mind?
Nothing but loops in mine.
Have you thought about me
like I think of you?

True color yellow,
orange, green,
tell me when to care,
shy, slow.
Hold me when I say,
I need more than I
could possibly have
I'll be someone else
instead sex is always yellow.

Your neck tastes like strawberries.
I'm getting lost in your density.
Legs shaking anxiously.
I like it when our eyes align,
and I'm looking at yellow.
Are you thinking of me when I think of you?

With you in the meadow, storm scene,
falling down the stairs, sky broke.
Ignore me when I say
I want more than I could constantly
have enough of you.
I'll be loving,
when sex is always yellow.
Track Name: Shiner
Laying on the ground
look at my chain,
I fell for tricks - kick me,
I can never have enough
It's just a wound
I'll look in the mirror next week
to see what I can do.
Tell me to try,
I'll put in the effort
but thats the most you'll get.
I was certain to shine,
bang my head on the dresser
and something could come out.

Shock demons
Salmonella
Black curse
Wet sweater
Cold seasons
Umbrella
Diverse
Worse weather

Got a letter,
it said shit,
got a Shiner

Look what I've found,
some hidden pain I'll exploit
hit me I can never get enough.
I'm fucking immune,
inoculated by a choice
to like it when its rough.
I bury whats mine,
digging the dirt til' my hands hurt
mud under the nail.
I'm still certain I'm fine,
bang my head for the pleasure,
just figuring things out.

Chalk freedoms
Cinderella
Black purse
Chain letter
No feelings
Dark cellar
Slow verse
Dumb Feather

Got a letter,
it said SHIT,
got a Shiner.
