The scent of your bedroom follows me home each night I wash so my mother can’t tell It’s not there in the morning So I write in a notebook What I’d give for a glimpse of the smell The marks on my shoulder are outlines of what she Uses to whisper sweet words And though it might hurt when she digs in so sharply, It’s still nice to feel loved at all I helped her find her clothes For me it was easy, I knew just what I doing And I suppressed whatever guilt was growing in my head And faced my face in the mirror Words like these rescue me And I think that we’re finally there His dark, old, and ugly Face inside my head Contributes to her blank stare “I liked where you touched me but Pat I just don’t know, We could’ve moved way down south, With a man in a big house, with five or six figures, With probably no feeling at all.” I might have a back yard But I couldn’t share it With something as big as your dog I’d wait maybe 8 years and prove I’m a grown up And maybe I’d steal your love Words like these rescue me And I think that we’re finally there His dark, old, and ugly Face inside my head Contributes to her blank stare The extent to which I love you Makes me blush in front of you So instead I’ll just say it in song.

It’s a crying shame That I’m a crying man I’ll hide you out of my heart, Or do the best I can Don’t say you know how Pretend you like to read You tore out all the pages The cover’s all you need I can see I’ll bet your words were slippery If I fight with you will you fuck with me I hate your stupid face and your attitude I hate my body and it hates me too Now you tied me up And you ran from me I begged for ya to stay You wouldn’t obey me Yeah you broke my legs And you ran from me If I’m all that’s left Will you stay for me? I can see I’ll bet your words were slippery If I fight with you will you fuck with me I hate your stupid face and your attitude I hate my body and it hates me too I’ll sell my body, I’ll sell my soul I’ll sell my guitars and I’ll sell my clothes I’ll sell my mother and my father too I’ll sell whatever brings me back to you Will you deceive me on a Sunday morning Skip church and leave me alone, gone You’re the end times, I’m the verse I’m the body, you’re the hearse I can see I’ll bet your words were slippery If I fight with you will you fuck with me I hate your stupid face and your attitude I hate my body and it hates me I hate my body and it hates me I hate my body and it hates me too

When you’re driving your car out of town I hope you crash and burn Just hang there for a little while I’ll meet you there Just to watch you die Just to watch you die When you’re feeling at your very worst I hope it finally sinks in That all the people of the world Hope you wrap the noose round your chin I’ll watch you die Even kick out the chair like a friend, On me you can rely When you’re lying in a hospital bed I’ll be a friend and pull the plug I’ll dump you straight down to the seventh ring Not send you off with a hug And I’ll watch you die Because you made me cry And I’ll watch you die And I’ll watch you die

Hold, wait for me to shine I was lost but I don’t mind Cause I saw it time to time Colored pins and needles Plant her in my mind I see your face upon the sky Could we really have been that high? With blood red eyes traverse the night I tried to hold you as you cried Hold all the tears inside You have closed your love, or tried But you never let it hide She felt his pain and cried Woke at once with blood red eyes I see your face upon the sky Could it really have been that high? With blood red eyes traverse the night I tried to hold you as you cried

Dull Days 01:55
I find myself writing songs about the girls I barely know They get inside my head and when they’re there I swear they won’t let go The urge to multiply is at odds with my hearts simple wish to die Come kids lets wrap it up I’m sure you’ve seen I gave a college try It makes the dull days hard to live through Oh, oh I stay up late and I always think of you Ooo ooo! If you want cool I’d bet, try the right clothes on And find a cigarette I thought that’d be enough in a corner somewhere Acting like I’m tough Back home with the look in her eyes But my parents are back! Whatever, big surprise! She’s out front walking home, And after all I wanted to be left alone It makes the dull days hard to live through Oh, oh and that is why I can’t forget you It makes the dull days hard to live through Oh, oh I stay up late and I always think of you Ooo ooo! Yeah!

Little Girl 03:24
Oh, she’s like a little girl, a teen Closer to my brother in age and always trying to prove She was as old as me But then she broke my heart and now I’m crying out in the night for my mother’s touch. I’m not trying to mess around She’s just a little girl She’s just a little girl She’s just a little girl She’s just a kid to me Oh, can’t wait till the day she lives with my blood on her hands Pretend it wasn’t her fault and deny deny deny as best as she can So hard to be loved, when she love another man but you But he’s not a man, he’s a boy now, And she’s just a little girl too I had a baby girl, whose name can’t understand But then some half pint punk kid Snatched her from my hands She’s just a little girl She’s just a little girl She’s just a little girl She’s just a kid to me She’s just a little girl She’s just a little girl She’s just a little girl She’s just a kid to me

Red Dress 04:45
I saw you waiting in a red dress Your eyes were watery and burning like the salt beneath the sea I saw you waiting in a red dress When you looked back it was hard to miss You staring straight through me I saw you gazing with a bored look Don’t be surprised when my eyes Glaze over like glass Crease and fold me, Put me away But there aren’t pockets in a dress I saw you floating out your front door And then I realized I’d never seen one quite like you before I saw you glowing you were best dressed I felt I saw your molten, melting, smoldering core Crease and fold me, Put me away But there aren’t pockets in a dress I saw you burning in a red dress Your heart was glowing like a candle that you forgot to blow out And when I called out I could hear you Echo for a mile I saw you waiting in a red dress I saw you tearing up but never even saw you crack a smile I saw you leaving for the first time I knew that when I’d see you it would be a while Crease and fold me, Put me away Crease and fold me, Put me away Crease and fold me, Put me away But there aren’t pockets in a dress Should’ve seen you in an even gown But you were waiting to cut holes for your feet I thought I tasted you were circumspect It must’ve been a bead of sweat Saw you dancing out your evening dress, Realized then that you were better than the rest I thought I saw a microscopic tear, While I was grinning ear to ear I saw you crying in a black dress I tried to touch you but I couldn’t put my hand through frosted glass Saw you sobbing in a black dress I tried to steal your pain but couldn’t steal it like I could the rest Crease and fold me, Put me away Crease and fold me, Put me away Crease and fold me, Put me away Crease and fold me, Put me away Crease and fold me, Put me away Crease and fold me, Put me away Crease and fold me, Put me away Crease and fold me, Put me away Crease and fold me, Put me away But there aren’t pockets in a dress I saw you waiting in a red dress

You say I’m a sinner, My momma always told me you were not the one You say you’re a sinner I’ve been sinning all along Now hearts have been broken On that scent that you left I have been choking You think you’ve been winning, I’ve been winning all along Girl Johnny Cash, you taste like cigarettes and ash All these years have passed, don’t say tonight will be our last Girl Johnny Cash, some day you’ll learn to love my laugh Don’t think we won’t last, tonight’s tonight, The past’s the past You say I’m a sinner, My momma always told me you were not the one You say you’re a winner, I was winning all along Now heart’s have been broken On that rope that you left I have been hanging You say you’ve been choking I was choking all along Girl Johnny Cash, you taste like cigarettes and ash All these years have passed, don’t say tonight will be our last Girl Johnny Cash, some day you’ll learn to love my laugh Don’t think we won’t last, tonight’s tonight, The past’s the past And I’m singing, and I’m doing all these things for you now Living and reliving the glory days like the never passed us by Singing, and I’m doing all these things for you now Living and reliving the glory days like the never passed us by Girl Johnny Cash, you taste like cigarettes and ash All these years have passed, to say tonight will be our last Girl Johnny Cash, some day you’ll learn to love my laugh Don’t think we won’t last, tonight’s tonight, The past’s the past

In the cold, in the night, when you need a guiding light, When there’s room in your bed, But there ain’t room in your head And your tongue fights your plan You yell for me to be your man Wipe the sweat from your hands Start to turn the gas can cap And I’ll spit on the spark, if you get too mean, girl Won’t light my my cigarette, if I smell gasoline, girl And I’ll spit on the spark, if you get too mean, girl If I smell gasoline Burning through summer nights, And you’re trying to start a fight You let your mind take a stand While crackin knuckles on your hand When our love it is young Incending flames is on your tongue Take a drink from the glass Turn the embers all to ash And I’ll spit on the spark, if you get too mean, girl Won’t light my my cigarette, if I smell gasoline, girl And I’ll spit on the spark, if you get too mean, girl If I smell gasoline You know what I’d do You know what I’d do You thought you saw me burn, but I’m anew The gasoline I drank, is through with you A waxless candle’s match can’t burn straight through The flint and tinder’s wet, and staying so And I’ll spit on the spark, if you get too mean, girl Won’t light my my cigarette, if I smell gasoline, girl And I’ll spit on the spark, if you get too mean, girl Won’t light my my cigarette, if I smell gasoline, girl And I’ll spit on the spark, if you get too mean, girl Won’t light my my cigarette, if I smell gasoline, girl And I’ll spit on the spark, if you get too mean, girl If I smell gasoline

Pictures 05:39
We'd laugh about Me and you Why I sing the songs I do What it'd mean to feel again a part of you More than stupid pictures for me to get off to Because somewhere deep there's a fire for only you And I could see you back in my arms And I could see you back in my arms Yeah yeah oh oh oh oh Look likes you're gone But in the end did I really do any wrong? If I miss you enough to feel weak cause I can't get along Cause I miss your heart on those fingers that were long When I sing to you do you really hear the song? And I could see you back in my arms And I could see you back in my arms Yeah yeah oh oh oh oh If I had any more then I might go and explode If I had any more then I might go and explode If I had any more then I might go and explode If I had any more then I might go and explode Looks like I'm wrong But maybe she'd have stayed of we fucked all along But in the morning she'd laugh and say "go away" She gotta get her bed clean for someone later that day And I could see you back in my arms And I could see you back in my arms Yeah yeah oh oh oh oh If I had any more then I might go and explode If I had any more then I might go and explode If I had any more then I might go and explode If I had any more then I might go and explode

You're the worst incessant temptation When I kick you out my front door, find a route to redemption. You burrow underneath my skin, Telling everybody where I've been. You're the worst I can't even stand it. Please just kick me out my front door, Never ever come back. I swear this never was my home, I would never stay here all alone. Oh girl, you steal attention, I suppose. Oh girl, in your big screen, famous, selfish pose. Oh girl, you steal attention, I suppose. Oh girl, you steal attention. You faked it, you tore it in two. You claimed "Lets put hot next to pretty! " You put you next to you. Your Siren voices crack my shell. Of my suburban basement headphone Hell. When your kids are old, and their town is whack, Don't forget you were the hair that broke the Buffalo's back. I'd like to see your faces then, You'll be working angles like you've never been. Oh girl, you steal attention, I suppose. Oh girl, in your big screen, famous, selfish pose. Oh girl, you steal attention, I suppose. Oh girl, you steal attention. Oh girl, you steal attention, I suppose. Oh girl, in your online, famous, selfie pose. Oh girl, you steal attention, I suppose. Oh girl, you steal attention.

Nooses 03:23
Oooh and it seems that I've found The right length and unwound Left it where you did dare To let your black hood hide your glare And I know I suppose She dropped me in her undertow Then wrapped her hair round me there Choked out my last bit of air Who's seen her greed? She's left and stolen everything Ooh ooh my pain, her glee Hang by neck up in a tree Who's seen her greed? She's left and stolen everything Black heels, black skirt, black hood, Lipstick the color of my blood Once happy days dulled in the sun Lost their unexpecting glaze I'm the kid down the hall Who let her let his smile dissolve Once her cold hand touched mine She'd strung her gallows just in time When I said, "let's 'hang' out" I didn't know what this was about Who's seen her greed? She's left and stolen everything Ooh ooh my pain, her glee Hang by neck up in a tree Who's seen her greed? She's left and stolen everything Black heels, black skirt, black hood, Lipstick the color of my blood Oh! Oh! Oh! Oh! Who's seen her greed? She's left and stolen everything Ooh ooh my pain, her glee Hang by neck up in a tree Who's seen her greed? She's left and stolen everything Black heels, black skirt, black hood, Lipstick the color of my blood Oh! Oh! Oh! Oh!

Oh, watch as my world crumbles Watch as I'm slowly pulled apart She sighs and says "I should've warned you" "Don't be afraid to move on, kid" And the leaves are slowly changing And my sense of self is fading I'm just looking for some place to call my home I know I'm out of line now And I'm searching my home for a sign yeah She said "darling, home's just where you put your things" She said "someday soon you'll get it" But what she really meant was "Life is never good (until you're dead)" Oh, the ropes are lain neatly in a row You've tied me limb by limb I know One shot and the fear in horses shows And watch as in different ways they go She said "someday soon you'll get it" But what she really meant was "Life is never good (until you're dead)" She signs with her hands, and she talks with her feet They say "remember you're mortal" And that "love cannot see" I knew once she saw me I thought love was still blind But she saw me then another And she left me behind And the leaves are slowly changing And my sense of self is fading I'm just looking for some place to call my home I know I'm out of line now And I'm searching my home for a sign yeah She said "darling, home's just where you put your things" She said "someday soon you'll get it" But what she really meant was "Life is never good (until you're dead)"

Won't stand when you sing to me Won't clap when you dance for me I'm bored to tears and can't believe I've waited this long just to see Them thieve and cop That robot hop All booze and sex and side projects Kill me, please kill me Change in your pocket and sent straight through the laundry Kill me, please kill me Change in your pocket and sent straight through the laundry Don't feel or believe And for that matter don't even breathe I tried to grasp what it's all about Tried not to laugh but it just falls out my mouth They'd never let me just forget Their girlfriends rock, their diapers drop Kill me, please kill me Change in your pocket and sent straight through the laundry Kill me, please kill me Change in your pocket and sent straight through the laundry I said kill me, please kill me Change in your pocket and sent straight through the laundry Kill me, please kill me Change in your pocket and sent straight through the laundry I'm sleepy I'm sleepy Kill me, please kill me Change in your pocket and sent straight through the laundry Kill me, please kill me Change in your pocket and sent straight through the laundry I said kill me, please kill me Change in your pocket and sent straight through the laundry Kill me, please kill me Change in your pocket and sent straight through the laundry Sleepy
