Track Name: sovereignty
so give me some shitty sovereignty
so give me some shitty sovereignty
quarantine, quarantine
quarantine, quarantine
war. war. war. war.

don’t give me that sweet sweet honey
don’t promise me sweet sweet nothings
don’t give your worst surprise
don’t feed me those precious lies
Track Name: born in the ocean
i was born in the ocean
i was born in the sunlight
white tapestries in hand
tangerine thoughts sublime

no worrying
no worrying
no worrying
bout those rumblin clouds

no worrying
no worrying
no worrying
bout things crashing down

in our island on the sea
it’s so poignant not diseased
there won’t be no rapture
from the waves or the thereafter

but one day lightning shock
will melt our bones
and grinding hell will wrench our core
but now. there’s no worrying
Track Name: there is no beach
there is no fucking beach
there is no fucking beach

there is no fucking beach
there is no fucking water
take a fucking trident
and fucking kill poseidon
Track Name: the void
hold fast to the butter
as it melts through your cold palms
like a river into the ocean

hold fast to the void
as it melts through your cold palms
like a river into the universe

hold fast to the void
hold fast, hold fast
hold fast to the void
as we drift into the universe

we were drinking 40s
out on the front lawn
talking about what was important
now we’re lightyears away
talking about what isn’t

we are all just waiting,
we all just know it
we are all just waiting
to be put back together
i am aware of you
wrapped in your sweater
so hold fast to the void
Track Name: the death of genkai
you had it written in
ugly black letters ‘cross your soul
we only go downhill
we run away in our own skin

she couldn’t help but think
our human lives are some cruel joke
we’re only here long enough
to know what we want then it erodes

you’re just an empty and outdated shell
the pitiful preserved remains
i hope you’re happy
with the way you wasted your life

we only do the the things we can
if survival means becoming as cold as ice
then i don’t see the point
Track Name: 13 demons
crash in like a cannonball
coming in and taking off
breaking rules and wrecking lawns until we
sleep sleep sleep sleep

thirteen demons runnin round in my head

coming in like an atom bomb.
can’t go on and can’t go off
crushing pavement, breaking laws until we
sleep sleep sleep sleep.
Track Name: better
from the cradle to the crypto-fascist
goose-stepping in stupid glasses
don’t know what’s worse anymore,
being broke or being whored

probably both, but i’m still fucked up
guess i’m just a stupid fuckup
i guess that it could be worse
some days still wanna ride in that hearse

and i guess it could be worse
oh but it could be better, babe
better, so much better
it could be better, babe
better, so much better

you could fall from a 12-story window
or be rich but still a widow
you could abandon your four children
or be broke but still with them

and some days feel like we’re worlds apart
and some days feel so close together
and some days the wormhole could break open
and somedays it could stay shut

in another time in another place
in another world in another space
in another world in another world
it could be better
Track Name: junkies
yesterday you died
and i don’t know why
yesterday you froze
and god only knows
the dreams
that you’ve been having lately

i guess that’s what happens
when all your friends
are junkies

yesterday you drowned
and i fell down
the biggest hole
i’ve ever been in
yesterday you fell
and i fell too
i guess that’s
just how it happens

yesterday you moaned
and then you croaked
this fucking joke’s
been going on for
a quarter-century
Track Name: out of touch
everything feels so out of touch
and every plan i’ve ever made
has always turned to dust
and it doesn’t matter
no, never, never
how fair the weather

the handlebars on your old bike
will always gather rust
and everything
fucking everything
feels so out of touch

seventeen years ago
their child was born
now where does she stand?
there’s no one the sun has shone
that will ever understand

we walk this gauntlet and parade
of faces and fools
pass on by, just facades
tighten your jacket:
the breeze is cool

now everything
fucking everything
feels so out of touch
and every plan i’ve ever made
has always turned to dust
and it doesn’t matter
no, never, never
i’ll fair the weather.
Track Name: bones
i walked into the forest
and it was there that i buried my bones
i returned years later to discover
that they were emanating
the color of amber
the color of butter
they had become something
so much better
