Track Name: Spits
Spit up
A honey gold drip that falls right off your chin
Split up
The shreds of thread which cover up your grin
In honesty
I haven’t felt this cold since I was home
All in
Got it all heated up and ready to atone

Im on my way
But I don’t wanna be like that
Ill stumble in
But I don’t wanna be like that
It is exactly wrong
So I don’t wanna be like that
But here I am
And I don’t wanna be like that

Ready
Grip the reigns and calm the sirens chant
Heavy
Weighs the crown of fleas and buzzing gnats
I cant recall
How I justified this drunken trite
All in
Ill just mark it up to well lit nights

Im on my way
But I don’t wanna be like that
Ill stumble in
But I don’t wanna be like that
It is exactly wrong
So I don’t wanna be like that
But here I am
And I don’t wanna be like that
Track Name: Where We Sleep
I don’t know where to put my hands at
Until the bone is no longer there

It’s not so hard to get you in my bed
It’s rather hard to get you out

Who said we needed a direction
I just got relaxed sitting here

But how relaxed is having one foot in the door
Been sleeping in until its dark

Surpassed my will to be impartial
This is where I draw the line

To lift my chin and mark my height
I'm just wondering where I stand
It's not a crime to waste my days
Just wondering why I am

It's not so easy when I’m lucid
The strands of hair all in my bed

To burn the house down that’d be easy
But I cough enough as it is

To be this fickle feels rewarding
But not enough to wear a crown

This tooth fell out all on its own accord
But now im sweeping up the town

To lift my chin and mark my height
I'm just wondering where I stand
It's not a crime to waste my days
I'm just wondering why I am
Track Name: In The Rugal Folds
Oscillating vision fading
Footing isn't found
It's a simple harm no foul
Unless the foul is finding out

And It grows...

But excusing all excuses
Happens to be my forte
Along with smut and glut and drinking lots
Don't say that’s not okay

And it breathes...

So I pop a couple quiet downs
Cuz I can barely sleep
But its inciting, biting, uninviting thrashing inside me

And it goes...

Gnashing in, your stomach friend
Glowing growing, punching, sobbing
It's the warmest place I've been

Thank you host, you've been the most
Easy feast I've ever leeched now have
Another glass let's toast

Pop some pills, watch me spill
Eroding, bloating, caustic, trenchant
When I dance your body wrenches

Here I am
Here I’ll stay
Made my bed now here I lie
I’ll be here til the day we die

Conclusively the time had come
To call upon the doc
And he prodded poked and scoped
And all the while looking shocked.

And he left...

He left the room and I presumed
The outcome wasn't good
The doctors face was pale and ailed
Hope I misunderstood

And he said...

I don't know how to put this
But there's something near your spleen
There's something near you kidneys and there's something in between.
This force it just keeps growing
And I swore I heard it speak
At this point my stomach burst and the mass began to shriek
Gnashing in, your stomach friend
Glowing growing punching sobbing
Its the warmest place I've been

Thank you host, you've been the most
Easy feast I've ever leeched now have
Another glass let's toast

Pop some pills, watch me spill
Eroding, bloating, caustic, trenchant
When I dance your body wrenches

Here I am
Here I’ll stay
I made my bed now here I lie
I’ll be here til the day we die
