I’ve been off and on with myself for days on end What a joke, I can’t get this self love locked down I’ve been Talking on and on with myself to keep in check (Hello, Leopold’s Son) Every inkling that I deserve more (Who are you, what have you done?) So, I can kill sparrows like nobody else (Lazy metaphor, so typical) Just watch as I infect you all with a slip of the tongue, In an instant the room has gone sour.
2.
Having lost my taste for joy, I get off when children fall. I’m a hole in latex, I am a stained dress at the ball. I want to take you home, Unload my grievance across your chest. But, stormy eyed and sweaty, I’ll just take my laptop to my bed. Cursed is the ground because of me Come, darling, take a walk with me Have you scanned your house for bleach? I’m just asking for a friend. He’s not one for making moves, A submissive malcontent. Extra terrestrial, He didn’t watch the same cartoons as you. Stricken with a cynic’s heart, Soaking in a lonesome brew Chorus Empathy is in a brighter room, as I stare through the glass. Child of frustration (Keep it at home, now) Spit out another inch of your tongue (Taste the blood) Mother says she fucked you up, it’s too late.

I like to watch as you fall asleep Your drowsy eyes are mine to keep The night is long, and no rest is coming, So I like to watch as you fall asleep But I can’t see past my own eyes When I rub against your thigh, you’re not there. You are caught in my stare. And it pleases my sick mind, When you miss me every time I’m not there. Don’t move a hair, wedding cake girl. So, pick a dress and come out with me (you look so good in yellow) I like you best where the world can see (Shine on me) But close the door, I’ll surely go running (To my window again) And you can talk while I think of me Chorus

Come on baby, now We can stay in if we please Live with a cartoon dog in a fort in the back room Spend the weekends on the couch And as old friends gather round, They’ll say He exists only in photographs with a girl now. We can take turns making coffee while I lie in bed (Oh Persephone, winter has come) We have trapped each other (such a homely hearse) Say you love me with a frown Tell me how I let everyone down With my head on your lap we’ll be silent till someone’s around So I have gone, intimate friend To my window again Is it sustain, is it release? I miss you without me Our obligations pile up beneath the clothes in our bedroom. I can hear them call, can you hear them call? (Come out) If we wake up and we find all our roads have been washed away, We will have each other. The heat is on too high, But you haven’t got off yet. My jaw is sore, And you’ve still yet to move A pet store under investigation Who knows what hides behind these walls? (Your lover’s eyes are compromised, you gave them billing clubs And now the doors have all been closed, Your lover’s shine, it comes and goes)

Hull Porch 04:19
Hot outside, and I haven’t slept. Staying up, trying to be the best But I’m not, Not for a while. Paranoid, So I smile, and I work All the day, to remedy All the fear, shame doubt, Oh John, you are my only hope. Mother’s vitamins meant for my head (There in your head) Rather them, so I don’t feel dead (boy, there is) Four a day, (such a lonesome brew) But I won’t say Why, oh why (Taking hold of you) So I smile, and I work (You can smile all you want) All the day, to remedy (Still at night, they will haunt) All the drab shy, loveless years This city has left me with Listen all day, don’t say a word When you get home, that’s when you should (Paura, oggio, vergona, dubbio) Vitamins clear my head of all of the hate For the day, I can breathe (You can smile all you want) Force the tranquility (Still at night, they will haunt) But, the truth is revived (paura, oggio) As the chemicals die. (Vergona, dubbio)

You’ve been poking round your head again With those extensions of yourself See all the people take steps Around you The next rotation is before your eyes You won’t let it pass Without you. Slave unto a thousand voices, as you stare through the glass Just a fool, waiting for the moon to make your kill When it comes up, I know you will. Come out and greet them Though dark have been your dreams of late, The world in shapes you don’t know Surrounds you. A great vocation from the ledger lines It won’t make a sound Without you When you get there, You might find your heart Under blisters, In the puss No one likes a song of hope, Who am I to say you’ll be fine? Your direction is forward, Into gloom.
