Track Name: deep state
everybody's keepin' up the silence
everybody likes to watch the violence
i don't wanna say it if you don't wanna say it

everybody's eats our money for breakfast
politician gets three cars for xmas
i don't wanna see it if you don't wanna see it
it's fucked

everybody's on a fast food diet
shove it down every little kid's gullet
i don't wanna eat it if everybody eats it

everybody hates it when you're gay
aren't we all christians anyway?
i don't wanna change it if you don't wanna change it
it's fucked

deep state's gonna kill us all
we're all fucked
Track Name: tittyboyz
we are talking in voices not our own
from gut-drawn growls to pathetic moans

what a fool i've been

cheeseburgers in the back of deaner's van
six cups of coffee might help me understand

what a fool i've been

47 months of runnin' circles in the same damn town
47 months of thinkin' i am probably gonna drown
my naivete has built a wall inside my way
to finding clarity in every single day

walking home from a night on big creek
i find i can hardly even speak
Track Name: muscle memory
i'm the man, walking down the street
i'm the man, whose eyes you don't meet
they just retreat

i'm the man, drinking downtown
i'm the man, who's out when no one's around
and then my head hits the ground

muscle memory

did you know, i used to live alone?
did you know, i used to call you on the phone?
but you were never home

little man, living in my head
little man, he probably thinks that i'm dead
because i never leave my bed

muscle memory
Track Name: infinitesimals
take a look for yourself and see that that bed was made once
recycled rhythms in the practice space does it compromise your fun?

do you staple up your arm a bunch when you're feeling real bored?
would you cancel dad's credit card on new years in the cold?

time is one long year, i'll have another beer
so i can forget the whole damn scope of the universe

Track Name: payday
just like a wayward stone thrown from a source unknown
not like the northern star that shows exactly where you are
just like those big black holes, heavier than human souls

a glimmer off the field of vision
just outside discussion
used for ammunition

i think i feel more saved, when it's payday

just like the northern lights, only not so bright
just like the ocean's clap, but it's only just a laugh
just like the preacher man, impossible to understand
i can't comprehend

a glimmer off the field of vision
just outside discussion
used for ammunition
