Track Name: whose to blame?
and after all the
clear space in my head is
on the wall

fill it up
with butterscotch scribbles
and bubbled love

4 walls form
the room that is my skull it’s filling up

stretch my hand
till wrists pop up and all ur sockets bend


flowers grow
even when the chemicals pretend

to kill the weeds
in the cracks the sidewalk starts to bend

whose to blame
whose to blame
whose to blame for growing up?
Track Name: hocky
heartbroken hockey dive
the snow breaks quiet
american strips and beer boys

how is the snow?
Is it cold?
r u ready 2 go
home?
Track Name: moon face
brush your teeth
clean your nose
the brussel spouts are in the oven now

2 face man
In the stair
staring back
at me bare

oh faded now
where’s you go?
i will turn the master knob

keep me sane
lying still
flowers grace the window sill
2 tone organ
bouncing back
the moon face man
has a heart attack (x2)

brush your teeth
clean your nose
the brussel spouts are in the oven now

brush your teeth 2 face man
clean your nose in the stair
the brussel spouts are in the oven now staring back at me bare
Track Name: extrovert
extrovert
you’re talking dirt
you’re talking quickly
now

//

head rolled onto shoulder
propped up a puppet chauffeur
talk to me
walk with me

i am a little loud
see my boyfriend through the crowd
ringing fare
fingers in his hair

head rolled onto shoulder
propped up a puppet chauffeur
talk to me
walk with me

i am a little loud
see my girlfriend through the crowd
ringing fare
fingers in her hair

//

extrovert
you’re talking dirt
talking quick

extrovert
you’re talking dirt
you’re talking quickly
now
Track Name: marker stains
the show is almost done
take my hand
green and red marker stain
ur wrists

where 2 go
who 2 see
whatdoyouknow
its half past 3

my head hurts
sun shown
stomach burn
turn slow

where 2 go
who 2 see
whatdoyouknow
half past 6:30
Track Name: mono
fill up the draft / between my ears
mono visions of / bouldery seas
seek a man / with wisdom unclear
shave the trust / with a whittling knife
Track Name: play
not going to work today
gonna stay up and play

call me up on your phone
maybe I’ll be less alone

leave me where my heart beats steady now
oh (oh)
i will make it somehow

not going to work today
call me up and we'll play

my heart beats steady
faster than a drum

keep me safe until I’m 21

not going to work today
come over to my house and we'll play
Track Name: : )
oh
what a beautiful life we lead
tucked between the silver and the trees
nestled snug like a couple of bees
on the petal of a flower

in the middle of
a field as wide as a turtledove
feel the sunlight on the back of my wings
soaking through right to my skull

oh,
its gonna be a happy may
can’t wait to ride my bike and say
goodbye to summertime
