Track Name: arrange the waterdrops
I would lead you to the desert and then
arrange the waterdrops, a map on your skin
and then I'll turn you on your heels
and leave you to your monologue
felt nausea as I unfurled my eyes
when the morning came to steal my night
your thoughts are waddling around city blocks
peeking into windows
and you lied right through your pint-sized teeth
as you held me hand
trampled hispanic paper flowers as I entered the room
meadow larks for the taking
spiders and snakes on the flume
I never found the appropriate phrases
for how I felt about you
I've never wanted to tear you apart
but I'm sure it would be easy to do
I can't stop shaking, I can't stop shaking
I'm sure this must sound like a lie
but I refuse to believe in the darkness of your room
I've never entered your mind
please never say this hasn't weighed on your mind
Track Name: magna carta man
cystic alarm headed south
larva harvest
alienated old cow
I feel secure like a needle and thread
while provoking a witness
I'll stay in my bed
I could go to sleep instead
I am a father again
daisy blooming
wish I could know where you've been
accepting donations from factory house bums
while provoking a witness
I tap on the drum of a magna carta man
who's been making demands
Track Name: all the best lies
I've been holding on to your sweater
and the memories it brings
I've kept your new address in my pocket
along with a number of things
I've written metaphors and similes too
I've practiced all the best lies
I've deconstructed every ghost of the truth
which I'll tell you is that I wanted to die
You'll go to sleep
I'll stay awake
that's how this goes, I know, I know
but I don't have to like it
I don't have to like it
I don't have to like a goddamn thing anymore
