Track Name: Finally
(OH, FINALLY)
THE CHEMICALS ARE FADING
(OH, FINALLY)
THAT KALEIDOSCOPIC DAY DREAM
(OH, FINALLY)
ITS OVER AND I CAN BREATHE
(OH, FINALLY)
MY LITTLE VOICE AS TALL AS PALM TREES.
(OH, FINALLY)
COVERED SOME GROUND, NOW I’M FEELING MORE PROFOUND
(WITH IT)
(OH, FINALLY)
SPENT SOME TIME REALLY TRYING HARD TO GET WITH IT
(OH, FINALLY)
(WITH IT)

THE CROWN IS ON MY HEAD,
AND THESE BIG WORDS, I’VE SAID
THE WORDS THAT YOU’VE BRED.
I HAVE RISEN FROM MY BED.
Track Name: If U Kno
IF U KNO, IF U KNO
THE WAYS OF YOUR RESTLESS SOUL,
THEN I WILL GO, I WILL GO
BACK TO THE BITTER COLD.
& IF U KNO, IF U KNO
THEN WHY DO YOU SAY YOU DON’T?
YOU COULD SHOW, YOU COULD SHOW
THE TEMPO THAT YOUR HEART GLOWS.

YEAH LOVELESS DOESN’T MEAN LESS LOVE
MY THOUGHTS ARE SPINNING SOMEWHERE ABOVE
MIASMA CAUGHT AND BREATHING AT THE EDGE OF MY TONGUE
Track Name: Goldenboy
(OH, FINALLY)
THE CHEMICALS ARE FADING
(OH, FINALLY)
THAT KALEIDOSCOPIC DAY DREAM
(OH, FINALLY)
ITS OVER AND I CAN BREATHE
(OH, FINALLY)
MY LITTLE VOICE AS TALL AS PALM TREES.
(OH, FINALLY)
COVERED SOME GROUND NOW I’M FEELING MORE PROFOUND
(WITH IT)
(OH, FINALLY)
SPENT SOME TIME REALLY TRYING HARD TO GET
(WITH IT)
(OH, FINALLY)
(WITH IT)

THE CROWN IS ON MY HEAD,
AND THESE BIG WORDS, I’VE SAID
THE WORDS THAT YOU’VE BRED.
I HAVE RISEN FROM MY BED.
Track Name: Little Dove
I LAY THERE ON A SHEET, DECORATED TO BE
A GARLAND OF FLOWERS BATHED IN SILKY CREAM.
YOU ADJUST SLOWLY IN YOUR SLEEP,
HALF DRUNK PAST THE POINT OF DRINKING
WHERE THINKING IS EASY.
& I HELD YOUR HAND, AND SWORE
I’D NEVER TURN THIS “YES” INTO A “YES, AND..”
IS THAT WHAT I SAID?
OR WAS IT JUST ANOTHER TIME
I WAS CRAWLING TOWARDS YOUR SUNSHINE?
AWAY FROM MY ABYSS,
MY POT AND PERSISTENT UNHAPPINESS.
YEAH, YOU WERE RIGHT ABOUT ALL OF THAT.
I SHOULD HAVE BEEN BETTER TO MYSELF
CAUSE MAYBE THEN, MAYBE YOU COULD LOVE ME
THE SAME AGAIN.

AND WHEN THE SEASONS TOOK A FALL
I HAD NO CLARITY IN VISION AT ALL,
THOUGHT EVERYTHING WAS A DECEIT
JUST CRAWLING UP TO GET ME.
OH SARAH, YOU WERE THE ONLY THING
THAT COULD CARE FOR ME PROPERLY.
YOU DON’T HAVE TO DESPAIR FOR ME, HONEY.
I NEVER SAW YOUR SENSITIVITY
AS ANYTHING BUT SWEET,
AND I WISH THAT I COULD MEET
THAT STANDARD OF BEING
SO PURE AND COMPLETE.
Track Name: Our Love is Not Made for Reality
OUR LOVE IS NOT MADE FOR REALITY.
OUR LOVE IS MADE FROM A FANTASY,
AND EVERY TIME IT FEELS LIKE A LUCID DREAM.

OUR DRUGS WILL NOT SAVE OUR REALITY
OUR DRUGS ARE PAVING OUR DESTINY
AND EVERY CRIME WE COMMIT LAZILY

BUT HOW COULD LOVE BETRAY OUR REALITY
HOW COULD DRUGS SLAY OUR TRAVESTY
CAUSE EVERY LIE SOUNDS LIKE A HORRIBLE SCREAM

{hop back on the train or lose to your ego
manic fantasies serve you no filets in heaven
graceful entrance only makes for an ugly
departure if the interaction failed, never
ways to bow out without hitting your
head on the coffee table}
Track Name: Don't Go It Alone
I WAVE MY HANDS UP BUT THEY DON’T SEEM TO FLAG YOU DOWN.
THE SIGN OF WANING DUSK SIGNALS ME TO TURN AROUND,
AND AT NIGHT WHEN I FALL ASLEEP
ITS YOU IN EVERY FRAME I DREAM.
IF I COULD ONLY PAINT MYSELF INTO THAT SCENE
IN COLORS SERENE
I WOULD SPEND MY WHOLE LIFE IN THERE,
JUST SO PEOPLE WOULD STARE.

CAUSE BABY, DON’T GO IT ALONE
OH BABY, DON’T GO IT ALONE

AND SO IF I WAS SOMEONE ELSE YOU’D LIKE ME BETTER?
TEAR DROPLETS LOOK JUST LIKE MOLD UPON THESE OLD LETTERS,
SCRAWLED IN THROES OF PASSION, LASHING CAUSE I’M SENSITIVE.
FEELING LACK AND KNOWING THAT YOUR TOUCH IS REAL RESTORATIVE.
YOU ARE MY COMFORT.
NEVER OBSESSIVE AS HUMBERT HUMBERT.
I WANNA BE YOUR DESSERT,
LIKE YOU HAD ON YOUR BIRTHDAY.
DO YOU REMEMBER THE WAY, WITH PERSISTENT NAIVETY,
I WANTED TO STAY?

OH YEAH CAUSE BABY, DON’T GO IT ALONE.
OH BABY, DON’T GO IT ALONE.
Track Name: Selfless Depleting
WE SAW THEIR HALOS GIVE UP, AND ASCEND TO THE HEAVENS.
WE SAW THEIR MINDS ALL MADE UP, CLOCKS SET TO ELEVEN.
AND I KNOW THEY’RE WATCHING,
SCROLLING ON THEIR SMART SCREENS
PAINTING ME LIKE A VOYEURIST DREAM
I SUBMIT WHAT THEY ALL SEE

LONELINESS INCREASING &
ARDENTLY WE’RE REACHING FOR TRUTH.
SELFLESS DEPLETING,
THESE SELFIES ARE PIECING THE YOUTH.

I JUST SEE IT IN A NEW WAY.
SAME DISH ON A NEW TRAY.
THEY SAY WE'LL GO BACK SOMEDAY
BUT WHO'S TO SAY?

I SAW YOU ACTING REAL TOUGH
FROM THE SOFT TOP OF A BLANKET.
YOU SAID YOU WANTED IT ROUGH,
SO WITH FULL PALM I SPANKED IT.

BUT YOU LEARNED THAT ON TUMBLR
YR STILL CAUGHT UP IN NUMBERS
WITH YOUR PARTNERS AND LUMBER
SPARKED AND TORN ALL ASUNDER FROM
Track Name: Flattering Human
SHE’S A DREAMER JUST LIKE ME,
REACHING OUT TO CLOUDS OF STEAM.
I WISH I COULD TELL HER WHAT SHE MEANS,
HER SKIN TASTES LIKE THE SWEETEST CREAM.
SHE’S EVERYTHING I COULD TRY TO IMPRESS,
BUT SHE’S GOT BETTER THINGS TO PRESS AGAINST.
I WISH SHE WAS MY EVER PRESENT TENSE,
MY DESIRE NEVER LESS INTENSE.

LOVELY SATIN IN THE FORM OF HUMAN.
LOVELY, FLATTERING THIS HUMAN.
Track Name: Captured
I WANNA SMEAR YOUR MAKE UP OFF,
MAKE OUT VIOLENTLY ON TABLE CLOTHS
BUNCHING AT OUR HIP BONES,
EXCHANGING A TANGO OF MOANS.

NEVER LET ONE MOTION DISTURB OUR MICRO OCEAN.
THE THOUSANDS SIGHS AND LIES RESTING BETWEEN OUR THIGHS.

I JUST WANT TO LAY INSIDE,
FEEL MY PALMS ON THE BACK OF YOUR THIGHS.
LET ME CAPTURE THIS EPHEMERA TONIGHT.
DARLING, DON’T TURN OUT THE LIGHT.

ENRAPTURED IN DREAMS OF YOU AND ME LAYING ON A MATTRESS
CREATING SOME STREAM HEAT
(deepest fire)
IN A WAY THAT SOME WOULD CALL POOR TASTE
BUT I CALL IT HEDONIST HASTE
CAUSE WHAT MORE TIME IS THERE TO WASTE BABY?
