Track Name: Parking Lots
parking lots water marks and my drunk face
in the bathroom mirror makes
makes me feel like a ghostly shape
makes me feel like I'm twice my age

mostly aged partly faded one fifth dead
if I live to a hundred and
if I live to a hundred then
I will outlive all of my friends

but I don't want that at all

what's so bad about growing up
if I'll stay young for as long as I want to

you hate my voice
it makes me feel like a little boy
and you hate all the words I choose
you push me like a pressure point

public parks subway cars where I grew up
I'd sleep over but we'd stay up
now you just want me to shut up
now you just want me to shut up

but I'm not sad at all

what's so bad about growing up
if I'll stay young for as long as I want to
Track Name: Algae Bloom
static state go away go away
I want to feel a little conscious by the end of the day
I tend to feel a little nauseous when you're slipping away

some things we talked about
it's hard to talk about you right now
you look like algae bloom when you're down

down down down

we used to walk around
now I walk without you around
that's hard to talk about

still water

I want to shout like a thundercloud
yell my lungs right out of my mouth
you look like algae bloom when you're down

down down down

still water

the woman on my voicemail machine
doesn't have a lot to say
because you don't have a lot to say to me today
today feels a lot like yesterday

static state go away go away
I'd like to feel a little conscious by the end of the day
Track Name: In San Francisco
did she love him more than he could ever love
half of the half of half is not enough
he don't look sad like she does now
he don't look sad like she does now
don't let it happen to me cause

I hope my sister grows up
and thinks that the world is beautiful
like your sisters grew up
like the way that you make me feel

I love when you drum to the rhythms in your head
so we can think of the same thing neither of us said
on beat like McCartney and Starr could be
but you wouldn't want to die like John Lennon did
and I wouldn't want to die like George Harrison
just come back here again

I hope my sister grows up
and thinks that the world is beautiful
I hope that we can grow up
and move back to San Francisco
Track Name: Lack
I want to swim way out
where the sand slopes down
where all I have to think about

are my muscles and
my arms and legs
and the blood and oxygen in them

I don't want to be a boy
and you don't want to be a girl
I hate the way your friends make me feel

I was not myself
but it was love I felt
when you tied my hands back with my belt

it's the lack that I still love
the space between the punch and the pain that comes

but it's not in my heart
Track Name: Heart Sinks
heart sinks, heart sinks
because your mouth says bad things
like this is weird

grow fast or not at all
and sit on a waterfall and caterwaul
let the water crawl
around your back and down your heels

heart sinks, heart sinks
because your mouth says bad things
like this is weird
this is weird
Track Name: Ohio Snow Falls
Ohio snow falls
I watched it from your blanket small
wrapped up
two coffee cups went cold

I shrieked like a cat
when you turned the faucet on but it made me laugh
and we stood wet
and happy about it

but who's going to kiss your undressed chest when I'm gone?

I'm living horribly
so I don't want to know how you're doing

my days are moving quickly
because they're smaller fractions of myself
but I can't tell
until it's been a long time and I still won't go out

but who's going to kiss your undressed chest when I'm gone?
on some night when you won't pick up the phone

I'm living horribly
so I don't want to know how you're doing

I'm living horribly
if you want to know how I'm doing
Track Name: Sleep In
home
I call it linoleum floors
a rotting wood porch and kids
singing to 80s pop songs
I sleep in my clothes and dream
pretty terrible things
I wish I could dream of you
but it gets harder each night
I barter your light for lust


sleep
for most of the day if I can
I'd rather not go and dance
because you're always too close
you step on my toes I can't
think of a way to say no
or think of thinking of those ways
why would I want to get up
I'd probably fuck up some more


home never seemed so sad
kids never seemed so sad
my dreams never seemed so sad
you never seemed so sad

sleep never felt so good
your dance never seemed so sad
I can't but I wish I could
some days
I am so fucked up
Track Name: I am Not
pack a forty for the east river
to that spot where the cops can't fit their cars
all the punks are acting up again
metal studs to the chain-linked fence saying

I am not what I want to be

pack a toothbrush and a change of clothes
you're getting out, that's all I know
you remember saying that to me
LCD lights up the screen saying

you are not what I want you to be

pack a forty for the long way back
to the station that I'll never come back to
for the island that I used to love
for the ones that you're thinking of

I am not what I want to be
Track Name: Pine Tree Lines
it feels like we are in still water
it feels like we are on two different sides
of pine tree lines

I don't want to hear your sound bytes
I just want to hear what you sound like

I am the girl my parents made
why don't you love me anyway
because I love the way you take up space

there is no one way the world should be
because we all get bored of all out favorite things
and I don't mind that you are not like me
because I don't feel like I'm a lot like me
Track Name: I'm Real
I'm real and you're real
but we don't see each other anymore
I know that I feel
like giving up on everything

what's the point of being here

I'm fine and you're fine
but that's all we say anymore
I know that I'm dying

what's the point of being here

it's a stupid part of me
and it won't stop

alone is a prison alone is a prison alone is a prison alone is a prison alone is a prison alone is a prison alone is a prison alone is a prison alone is a prison alone is a prison alone is a prison alone is a prison alone is a prison alone is a prison alone is a prison
