about

Does not apply to my life anymore.

A lot was going on when I made this and there is quite a story to everything. I guess this is a record of what was going through my head. However, I've turned back to Christ. For real

Track Name: I Was Just Asking About You
Who sewed the seams?
Now I'm wet in envy
You laughed cause I kissed you
You kicked so I'd last you

Save what you want
It's a gift from the sun
You'll miss all the fun of my bed

Save what you want
It's a gift from the sun
You'll miss all the fun of my bed

Since you lost what I loved
And drove out the madness
I'll give everything up
To block out the shutters

I mostly don't mind
Your lack of abstinence
But since it's returned to you
I'll take our equivalence

Surely the rest of my life
Will pay off
Just working for insurance
From the word of the law

Tender and warm you are
Worship and scorn afar
Today's without grace
Wash your face

Save what you want
It's a gift from the sun
You'll miss all the fun of my bed

Tender and warm you are
Worship and scorn afar
Wash your face
Today's without grace

Wash your face
Wash your face
Wash your face
Wash your face
Watch your back
Watch your back
Track Name: I Did It on a Sunday
The soul steals strength from others.
It's symbiotic.
The spotlessness of Lilith sits upon us
Shadowed by the restless seventh night
They said it's a sign
"It's a sign"
You told me it's a sign
"It's a sign"
Force your self awake
Your grip, I'll break
I'm headed to the southern, sin-free states
Or maybe I'll just burn and burn and burn
And burn
But we all go wrong
They said it's a sign
"It's a sign"
You told me it's a sign
"It's a sign"
Track Name: Then Climb It
Somebody call my name
It's your boy, his lost way
You'll drink just for keepsake
Burnt skin in your lungs

See, I said it's a wall
See, I said it's a wall

Maybe I pass through
And shit stops when I do
With one look, I'm the tinman
Cold and heartless, without a clue

Do you need me?
If not, then I'll go
Your hand shakes as you wave bye
You bought some gloves to keep my touch

And you hold them
To protect you from the truth
The truth is only misery
So join the world in its happy tune

Lean on the arms of the brave
On those who curse the devil's name
You love me, don't you?

If the clock ticks
Counterclockwise
Then we can move backwards
To keep up with time

See, I said it's a wall
See, I said it's a wall
See, I said it 's a wall
A wall

"Then climb over it
Then climb over it
Then climb over it"
Track Name: The Great Bottom Lake
Count me in, then drag me out of this hellhole
Stars align and worlds a-spin
For a chance to swim in the Great Bottom
Laaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaake
Laaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaake

I'd grow fins just to stay in town
For a round of war and a pound of more
I'd explore the waters of
The Great Bottom
Laaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaake
Laaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaake
Laaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaake
Laaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaake

Hell can swim and hell can soar
Maybe life's a metaphor
For something bigger
But bigger is not better
We're only beggars
For the time being

Beings of this soon doomed planet
Save the world with grass
Well, plant it
Plan your own goodbye party
Swim with fish and dirty laundry

Lawns of grass dry- Hopeless sorrow
Sweetly sinking out of tomorrow
Take us all, for goodness sakes,
To the shore of
The Great Bottom Lakeeeeeeeeee
Track Name: I'll Be Clean By Wednesday
Make me illuminate
I'm so sober that I can still see what I've done
And since you believe in ghosts
I can assure you that you're seeing the ghost of someone sinking (in the great bottom lake) to hell

Clean me out By Wednesday
I can't spend three full days praying
My eyes need to stay open so you don't stab my back

But I'm always alright according to everyone
"Who says it's your right to have one
Smoke or two around complete strangers
Who you've always known
I don't get your ways
I don't get your ways
You've become so adulterated
You've become so adulterated"
Track Name: No Sleep or Anything
I basically just repeat " don't check the medicine cabinets"
"Im not sleeping tonight" and "im not doing anything tonight" or a variation of those three
Track Name: Endless One
Feed all the doves and let the wild ones come
Oh come

For every note,
Bless my song
Long for the right,
Love the wrong
Endless one
Endless one

Mistaken my fear for another dropped tear
Oh come
The burden of the calf is gone at last
Oh come

For every note,
Bless my song
Long for the right,
Love the wrong
Endless one
Endless one

Streets for the dead go to rest
Hahahahahahahaha
Track Name: Bitchpolar (A summary or an epilogue depending on how you want to think about yourself or myself)
I'm sure I said I love you
But I was younger then
No one felt pain like I did
I did and didn't win

And so we meet at night now
Only me and a lack of friends
You sleep while I dance with you
Your in and in and in and in bed

I'll keep all the windows wide open
Maybe someone can catch a glimpse of true lust

And now out of the way is the risk of taking my innocence
I grow without you now I'm ashamed to show my skin again
"Sarah, maybe we're not meant to be"
I laughed and laughed and laugh still

I'll keep all the windows wide open
Maybe someone can catch a glimpse of true lust
The window's wide open
Take the risk, take the jump

Since the shore of a whore sits below me now
Drain me of my purpose
I'll sit like the grasshoppers
To just be smashed

You laugh at my word choice but it's appropriate
I'd give my life to get laid
And I hate what I am for thinking that
I wish I wasn't myself

Hang me
The windows wides open

Fuck fashion statements! I'm the king of the world!
Maybe Hannah can be another replacement. which one?
Now they're tied together but one's left out
I owe one myself and the other only owes me everything (underneath the sun)

Stop watching me lose my mind and turn your head to the TV

You've read the signs
Disconnect your phone from my belly button
I can't charge anyone but myself anymore

You've read the signs
Disconnect your phone from my belly button
I can't charge anyone but myself anymore

(Melt me, sell me, kill me, use me
Melt me, sell me, use me, kill me)
Crashed cars- what could I expect
I'm where I thought the days would turn bright again
Trust me, dad, I'm not crying cause you get it
I only tear up cause you don't

Spirit of the living God, fall fresh on me
Spirit of the living God, fall fresh on me
Spirit of the living God, fall fresh on me

I'll just beat the battle dirge
Cut my fingertips and make them bleed
She may cut me when I hide. She may saw the mirror when I glance at her

But I wish myself a place in your nest
In your selfless treasure chest, I'll rest my head

Who the hell have I been singing to in all these songs
There's no you, or she, or will-to-be
There's no you, or she, or will-to-be

Spirit of the living God, fall without me
Don't help me help me
Don't help me help me.
Give up the fight

Why are all my dreams so vivid?
I must live a double life
Just cut me cut me
Cut me cut me
Or bring me the knife

And I sit to consider by life as a hasbeen
Whereabouts and whenabouts
What's with Or within
The golden ticket promises much for good kids, but don't save the wrapper

"Forget all your drugs, take the word from above.
Your youth has only prospered, but not from good luck
You'll never be afraid"
I'm always afraid

But I sense and I sense
Some senseless symbolism
The stuff about angels and songs of Solomon
I only grasp your name
I don't know your name

Don't even know
Don't even know
Don't even know
Don't even know
Don't even know
Don't even know
Don't even know
Know your name
Don't even know
Don't even know
Don't even know
Your name

The question only stands as to what I represent
Not anything
Anything
Anything but me
Let these lyrics be
Anything but me

The question only stands as what I represent
Anyone
Anyone but me
