Grubby 01:37
Two months behind on rent now Smile broad and they forgive you Slept through a staff meeting No one expects any different from you It’s hard to form adult connections When you sleep on turtle bedspreads I can fake my way through a date But I (can’t hide how child I am) Misplaced another invoice Add another dude to avoid Bad with days and shitty with times Guess its Thai takeout valentines It’s hard to form adult connections When you sleep on turtle bedspreads I can fake my way through a date But I (can’t hide how child I am) When you’re just charming enough to survive When the people you owe they like you and so you don’t die When all you’ve got in your pocket is handshakes and lies You’re allowed to sit down but trust it’ll be a short ride

Somewhere between low expectations And a decade long malaise A slimy well of self-deprecation And a fucked up fight picking phase You look good in that I mean it Maybe lose the shirt though See, I told you so Just admit it You are the next big thing This shoot is pure gold Platinum even I take no credit, you’re the reason You look good in that I mean it Maybe lose the shirt though I was young and I needed the money You’ve got a rare energy You’re a natural A regular Tony Ward You look good in that No, I really mean it You look good in that Maybe lose the shirt though

Avoidarama 02:58
Put in an appearance 15 minutes and out Just stick your head in Say whats up to old friends I’d rather end it Few seconds I’m out Find an oven stick my head in I’ll let you know how it ends I hear your story Depression home you’re staying I hear your story A laptop night complaining I hear your story Those bitter thoughts invading C’mon just swing through It really won’t hurt People they miss you You can leave when you want I prefer strong exits Borrowed boat at midnight I’m swimming in chains now But you go have a good time I hear your story Depression home you’re staying I hear your story A laptop night complaining I hear your story Those bitter thoughts invading

Dollar Story 02:43
From the sharpie on the tile To the black mold found behind the drywall There’s an energy to poverty you can’t run from But I’m not even hiding You can adjust to anything if you’re leaving Even dollar store clorox you’re always breathing Drop ceilings raw feelings basement existence Life of a broke lonely pissant That’s just your nature Cheap drugs raw sex Low rent high drama It’s how the ventless vent High risk Stretch plastic over broken windows To the space heater with built-in stove Bare bulb overhead lighting Mood future black hole you’re always fighting Particle board table depression Body gets it but brain misses message Tub washing clothes to on save quarters Need the money for your court date Can’t adjust (high risk) Low ambition (high risk) Nothing going (high risk) Can’t adjust (high risk)

A petty grievance pushed you to violence Tough break and now you’re facing some charges If you live long enough you’ll do something wrong enough that you feel shame enough to say enough’s enough. Push your sister’s boyfriend down the stairs Steal forty dollars from the till There’s a learning process here Something often lost: life is process not product Gotta break some bones to have them set proper Small money fight so you set a fire Space was occupied so man dies there If you live long enough you’ll do something wrong enough that you feel shame enough to say enough’s enough. Push yourself down the stairs Steal tens of thousands from your band God he’s indifferent and nobody cares Here’s your life advice

Weed Pin 04:42
First time in dress shoes, and you slip New guy puts his thumb in the petri dish Son you did some sloppy science Now the samples can’t be trusted You’ve set this lab back years You’ve halted the march of progress Hard to choose a career when you’re bad at everything Pay shit rates, get shit labor I should’ve started a chemical fire Kid you soiled the sample A decade of collected data Fuck you at $12.50 an hour I should’ve started a chemical fire I should’ve burned this place to the ground First time in dress shoes and you slip New guy puts his thumb in the petri dish Stained lab coat with weed pin New guy dragged off of the premises Hard to choose a career when you’re bad at everything

There’s a guy with a search history darker than a sea trench telling you how to live Closet, crawlspace, and attic full of skeletons A grown man who can’t handle his life for shit A scummy fraud who wants to be your boss, can’t handle his shit Seen’m before There’s always one He’s hard to miss A born asshole Keeping tabs on Running tattle On the people making things There’s a guy in a group chat with klansmen telling you how to live. Just a matter of time till he’s the one twisting in the wind But man it makes me sick to sing this

Foam Pit 02:31
Work on my presentation shoes shirt and dictation give my best effort to stand up straight for that Emails politely phrased everything about me begs don’t pass me over please there’s rent I gotta pay Those grimy eyes paw at you Those greasy hands grab at you They wanna wring what little you have left You’re not welcome, they make it clear They tell you, you’re only here to hold their ladder Seeing a therapist but being open to risk No way to safely convey the size of this shoulder chip Running’ on bitterness briar hooks into hips Get hot from anger and melted straight into my couch At least there’s some self in self-destruction

Leave your Sentra in the tow lane Take off from your brother’s wedding Pull the plug on mom days early This is your window don’t you blow it I went and I had a scary epiphany I’m just a magnet for negativity I was born with a gift a special ability I catch most people only on their worst days The jam up and the hassle The indignation of some asshole When we see each other it’s punches Now maybe come across the counter Find me outside your workplace We’ll put on a show for your workmates

Tillary 04:46
A silly thing it eats at me keeps me up I admit an ugly need you don’t hide I can’t help but to see Gets you hard makes you wet thrilled to talk and to vent Let me know tell me twice and again and again The brutal truth of the thing is you need to control to feel free Your own life it’s a pit luck is late to each event Job is lame so are friends simple math less than shit Appoint yourself take an oath rally troops affix a lens Letter sent lecture held you’re center stage for a bit The brutal truth of the thing is you need to control to feel free No Gods No Masters you sing but you sure love playing police Mr. Officer what are my charges? Mr. Officer I want to speak in my defense
