Track Name: North Slightly East
There's a hole in the tree that is planted across the street
Facing North Slightly East but I think it's gonna be a little while 'til
It catches up with the west bird feeders hanging blessed
Underpopulated mess, grace your children
make you work shirts in to brand new vests

And they'll play as miserable as you like
They'll play as miserable as you like lately

There's a room with a tub that is only fit to dunk
a man's head and his feet at the same time while his body's curling like a crab
and there's a woman next door, living on the bathroom floor
learning how to tie a tie but the diagram is gone now that her phone has died

And she'll play as miserable as you like
She'll play as miserable as you like lately

Folding your arms together, there's no need for life to matter
So i'll be dancing tonight baby, comma invite now accept or decline lady
I got a limited time baby, comma invite now accept or decline
Concrete won't hide the weather, the stoves broke but i need to simmer
So i'll be dancing tonight baby, comma invite now accept or decline lady
I got a limited time baby, comma invite now accept or decline

There's a story on the news about a man that has sued
another man making key rings that can also have the use to open bottles of beer
and there's a saying going round 'what isn't lost, isn't found'
so whilst the kids are making ground i'll maybe opt to venture out or take another gap year

My life coach gets as mad as you like
My life coach gets as mad as you like lately

Folding your arms together, there's no need for life to matter
So i'll be dancing tonight baby, comma invite now accept or decline lady
I got a limited time baby, comma invite now accept or decline
Concrete won't hide the weather, the stoves broke but i need to simmer
So i'll be dancing tonight baby, comma invite now accept or decline lady
I got a limited time baby, comma invite now accept or decline

Sometimes I try just to get on by
If there's despair it won't get nowhere
No need to hug, I bleed electric blood
I think too much, you've gone and wrecked your love and
Oh sight, come alive
Alright, Come alive
Track Name: So Vacantly
So Vacantly
Tied to the theme
Work it on out
Now where is there doubt?

The lightning struck your pedestal
The dye bled out and i'm struggling to sleep

For how long?
For how long?
I don't know, why?

Cause i've not felt so weird since my pen-pal replied
with letters from pages of Playboy and Time
get mad when i'm honest but hate when i lie
so truth is your mad at me most of the while
feel lost, life feels airy, i'm loosing my mind
they're splitting the pixel, she's splitting her time
she's working all day and then working all night
that's when I first noticed how bright the moon shined

And I warned you

Look at me twice I won't call you a liar
the crew's loosing light so they tossed you a lighter
jump on my hands as you preach to the choir
sing it again and it spreads like a wildfire
most me will die and they won't feel the cold
but some men die young, when discovered they're old
turning to stone, renewing a loan
said she'd two skillets, she'd let one of them go

The lightning struck your pedestal
The dye bled out and i'm struggling to sleep

Is there anything i might need?
Just to open my eyes and not see
Track Name: A Watch On Each Wrist
Renaissance villain you wanna fit in but you know yourself too well
Not often fickle, but in a pickle you could loose yourself to them
Now while they're breaking your legs, seems like I am tired of this
Now while they're breaking and breaking your legs, an open eye
and a watch on each wrist

Whatever you're asking for, this is whatever you're asking for
Fresh meat
Whatever you're asking for
Bon appetite
Say whatever you're asking for
Lacquered concrete
Got whatever you're asking for
safe place to sleep
Not whatever you're asking for
a world that don't keep
an open eye and a watch on each wrist

Whatever you're asking for, this is whatever you're asking for.

I get the feeling, I've been the victim of a long line
where there's nowhere to run and there's no where to hide
one bad decision, i've been enjoying my whole life
So while they're breaking your legs
Seems like i am tired of this
now while they're breaking and breaking your legs
an open eye and a watch on each wrist

Whatever you're asking for, this is whatever you're asking for
Fresh meat
Whatever you're asking for
Bon appetite
Say whatever you're asking for
Lacquered concrete
Got whatever you're asking for
safe place to sleep
Not whatever you're asking for
a world that don't keep
an open eye and a watch on each wrist

(Order today and we will cut prices…)
Into half
Into half

When you feel like it, when you feel like it
when you feel like it nothing stops it

Whatever you're asking for, this is whatever you're asking for.
Track Name: Curious Jaws
Girl i wouldn't wanna be the one without your eyes
Girl i wouldn't wanna be the one not next to your side
Inside my belly is only dead things
but maybe you'd be someone I could keep
and maybe we could swim, then fall asleep
and maybe I'd be just the man you need

(Drowning in love, love. Drowning in love, love.
It's pulling me under, pulling me under.)

I'm a shark that has bitten more than he can chew
I'm a shark I can't help myself from eating you
I'm a shark in the midst of all the things that you do
You don't know it but you make the water seem less blue
I'm a shark and i'm crushing on the things that you do
I'm a shark that has bitten more than he can chew
Track Name: World Champion
Well out of my way
I'll be world champion
I'll be a picnic bench
made of old rotting flesh
mouldy and wet
and on your summer day
I'll be the villain that's pinning you up
feeling in love
feelings above the waist.
No water, no lake.

Beer or smoothie, both taste nice.
Come alive, come alive.
Beer or smoothie, both taste nice.
Come alive, come alive…
…and die

HEY LIFE
Track Name: Dead In The Wild
Morning brings new instincts
Lunchbox rolls in thrice
All through my life
I have laid on my side
Dead in the wild

Hey life, I wanna be there for you
Hey life, I wanna be there for you
In time
