Track Name: DEAD END GOT PLUMBING
I'll hold my piss until the thing explodes / I'll hold my tongue until the thing erodes / an attempt at getting on / feels like spit leaving my mouth

~DEAD END GOT PLUMBING, TWO ROOMS INTERNET CONNECTION~

no you're not going to be ok / you should be glad / by now to have something certain / by now to be sure

you need a trim you're lookin bizarre / what are you doing still / sadly lusting over options / that are out of you're league
to where frustration / can't be recognized / overgrown expectations / someone else's spit in your eyes

how its gonna be should be clear by now / its gonna be should be clear right?
Track Name: ETERNAL CURSE
you're just jealous, little guy / I have confidence / I speak easily / I give eye contact
where did you get your ease

~~~~~THERE ARE NO DAYS OFF~~~~~

hiding in the sports bar / reading Husker Du lyrics / I need a pay check / I just need a paycheck
all of the awful / euphoric faces / remind me that I didn't / that I didn't adjust / I didn't adjust
where did you get your ease

it doesn't need a front door / it doesn't need curtains / thats not how you're supposed to react / react to an eternal curse / it doesn't need your warmth
Track Name: PRESSURE WASHER
rent me out for 65 hours / cheaper than a pressure washer / it spits water fast, removes loose paint from buildings / with its motor, a pump and a hose
show up on time, we need you here, we need all your time

~~~~~HERE YOU GO MY DAY IS YOURS / WEAR IT LIKE A FUR COAT / FORM IT INTO A BALL OR CRUSH IT / HERE YOU GO MY DAY IS YOURS~~~~~

monotony, YEA YEA YEA YEA YEA YEA / security, get up and get dressed / get to your job, get to feeling useless / just pop on over to the food court
I'll give it here, I want you to, I need you to have all of my time

when I feel used up, when theres nothing left, theres a shower and a reset / are you done yet? standing still without a useful skill
Track Name: FLACCID
well adjusted people passing around a plague / aren't you glad you caught it / aren't you glad you're safe / get a throat full of hooks / dislocated outlooks / lack of health insurance lets hear it for health insurance

~~~~~I'M NOT ERECT, DIDN'T HAVE AN EFFECT~~~~~

larger males biting off each others faces here / I'm ready to be violent / I'll put holes in your skin / well adjusted people biting off each others faces here / from the top of your tree / if you wanna call it happy call it happy

a nasty neighbor getting rewarded / work more, shut up, grow up, buy shit
you can keep it up but it doesn't do a thing for me
you can keep it up til your arms fall off but it doesn't do a thing for me
Track Name: SISTERS
catfood and pregnancy tests in my hands / demands, I'm on the way, I'm anxious minus plus
we'll set it straight we will set it straight / with some helpful urine I guess theres no blood

~~~~~OH NO I GOT YOU PREGNANT~~~~~

I am glad we can, see eye to eye and there is no question at this point in our lives / while there are lawmakers who still claim your body somehow without feeling like rapists

I can see how derailing could be easy / please stop you're scaring old aspirations
how high did I clear this decision / you get the universe or a vacuum aspiration
Track Name: KILL CARE
carry that stress / I got my prize / I don't have to live / that kind of life
obedient, stay the course / do you feel like your life is yours

~~~~~I GOT MY EDUCATION WHEN I FELL OFF / I GOT MY EDUCATION WHEN I GOT FUCKED~~~~~

all of those hours / you're killing yourself / you need that healthcare / you need that health

I know just what I want / I wont believe it when you say achievement / I have no health insurance / I'm not in your interest and you are not in mine I won't hear you saying "go straight to hell boy"
Track Name: BATON
an account full of derelict expectations / trickle down like a quiet police baton

~~~~~NO NEED DEAD VOLCANO, BLACKED OUT TOOTHLESS THOUGHT / BANKRUPT TALKING SURFACE, WHILE THE INSIDE ROTS~~~~~

in your white blood defense one percent / tear gas vaccination a calming sensation
Track Name: MORE THAN PISS
so strong, stronger than my scent / you will be violent / already on your home / tiger piss, money / on your water hole, every tree territory

~~~~~IT TAKES MORE THAN PISS, IT TAKES MORE THAN A VICIOUS GROWL AND SPIT~~~~~

depend of the deep end / hit up an empty ATM / ammonia, excess, torn fur broken necks / light up printed ads on the back of your eyelids

a stitch in a wallet, a binge and vomit
