Psychobabble (free) 03:24
The backseat is comfy Think you're walking on wires So your sitting it out One hand is honey Put my head in the wall til I figure it out Feel like a leech So I'm pushing the heat Guess I'm taking a seat Push the cigarette lighter Staple shoes to my feet Critics pounding the street People out here green So I'm just holding it tighter Psychobabble in my jug I'll buy the long sleeves just to roll them up We've got the spark to sedate your head Just go to sleep and we'll burn your bed Focused aggression the feeling comes and it goes tough to lasso it down Focused obsession Sometimes you sit in the car And wonder what you're about Feel like a leech So I'm pushing the heat Guess I'm taking a seat Push the cigarette lighter Staple shoes to my feet Critics pounding the street People out here green Psychobabble in my jug I'll buy the long sleeves just to roll them up We've got the spark to sedate your head Just go to sleep and we'll burn your bed Wrote it down with pen in the dark Self conscious of falling apart One more step and that's just too far Tearing all my insides apart All my fake friends driving my car Ghosted by the heavies all day Don't have to talk to me that way Overthink when we walk away You can keep it here, you can stay Hear you saying that it's not you You're outta your head I got that moving feeling Tugging at my wrist I see you talking when I'm driving Through Palisades

City Buses 04:04
Ears are plugged into a broadcast membrane Take the backpack fill it up with insane Holey moley think that I know me Tried too much now the hat is empty Parachute to the city of no rain Spent two years now I'm stuck in a parlay Back and forth cause I don't trust anybody Papers are piled and burning on my desk Paid vacation positive vibration Spent a year at your new space station I wash my hair in a sink down the hall Just don't write a message if somebody calls "If It's The Beaches" made you cry In city buses late at night The low set in, you missed your ride Still golden pieces in your eye

So I never see the neon When it's spelling something out Taking second chances Plug up the TV in my house Don't understand the distaste When I'm biting my own hand Turn off the headlights Take out my insides Leave em on the dash And now I'm disconnected Cause my ears are disconnected And it's paralyzing Thinking something could make me choke Piling upside down Living in a graveyard shift All my moments exist Living in a time where nobody lives And then I heard you humming We were fighting with the sun Worried about somethin' Stare at the ceiling just for fun Packing up emotions Think about something outside Wake up with traffic Wake up with static Wake up on the floor And now I'm disconnected Cause my feet are disconnected From the sidewalk pavement And the world underneath my coat Piling upside down Living in a graveyard shift All my moments exist Living in a time where nobody lives Egg yolk on the carpet Keys are hanging by the door Ya know I made up my mind and my head says not to think like that anymore I'm turn into something on the phone Something I didn't even know

So I got worked up Crawling up the stairs You don't know me at all Just the shoes that I wear Quick identity crisis So I'm cleaning up my room I've been nowhere at all I hope that I get back We're stuck now Part of the carpet Fungous humongous (It's priceless information) I'm spilling decorative rocks In the backseat Self medicated by giving away I lock myself in my cabinet every single day It sounds like you guys are just trying too hard Sell the couch, sell the fridge, sell the car We're stuck now Part of the carpet Fungous humongous (It's priceless information) I'm spilling decorative rocks In the backseat (Put you on your feet) There's your seeds and your garden Guess you've been digging for this And you get nervous while sleepin' There's nothin' you wanna miss And you wear shorts in the winter Nothin' to cover your shins So dry your knuckles are bleedin' Your family says you look thin

Talking Loud 03:35
I parked north of the city Underneath some lights Everyone walks with their hands in their pockets On a morning like tonight I wonder am I okay I guess it's moving too much She said, "Give it a year, and by then Everything will have a different touch." Your eyes are moving in electrical lines Your friends are all in the street It's so easy to forget what's important When you always have something to eat I thought that things would be different Look for feelings in the art One thousand miles, sixteen hours, And a dirty look at the bar And I know feelings pass You cut your hair in someone's backyard Wake up humming You're gonna find somebody new And now I gotta get up early To pull the poison out Felt like everyone knew just what hey were doing They were all just talking really loud So I'll guess We're doin' okay I thought that things would be different Look for feelings in the art One thousand miles, sixteen hours, And a dirty look at the bar And you know feelings pass You cut your hair in someone's backyard Wake up humming You're gonna find somebody new

The Basement 02:48
We moved here There's nothing to do You're inside the living room I've been here practicing for days We papered up this town Bought the shoes Now we're walking around I miss myself I miss my dog We seek the shelter of the basement We put our noses on the pavement We break the glass in celebration Tie it up I'm sorry I made my mind Told you things that I thought were a lie I used to wash my hands A hundred times a day I liked how the sun would end A couple hours we would see it again Having trouble with the time I spend Seems a lot of it's afraid We seek the shelter of the basement We put our noses on the pavement Breaking the glass in celebration Tie it up Tied together by our laces We're done so erase it Put up the money, put the cash down Tie it up

Flowers 04:07
You're a freak It takes one to know one I wanna be Far off and no fun Got a walkie-talkie brain Things going outta range Easy I get caught up in winter It's getting heavy but you will deliver Can be addicted to the sound of my mouth I dug a hole but I'm gonna get out The sound of silence Just another sound to me Put the flowers in your vases Tear the petals off and waste them Smash the keys til my pockets bleed Get the feeling it's real I can go get brainwashed for free With Some rhythm and feel Two degrees away And you're insane Decide how you use All of your fame Hey there nothing's free Keeping eyes on me Type of lens can dig you a mountain Tear down your castle I'll swim in your fountain yeah Can be addicted to the sound of my mouth I dug that hole but I'm gonna get out I see no evil Coming up the hill for me Put the flowers in your vases Tear the petals off and waste them R-O-L-L-I-N-G Bad thoughts Are an animal that's mad at me R-O-L-L-I-N-G You don't know what you got into When you go with me Don't groove Groove that close to me Put the flowers in your vases Tear the petals off and waste them

Teeth 02:52
I'll write with my hands When I can barely stand The sound of my voice at the door Try to keep my sanity right I'm pulling at straws Guess jaws get locked We try to talk I can't get my point Drag feet at the lake Small talk I'm a fake Words they click and then defrost away Words are everything They're not anything Hope you hear something I just can't say My teeth fall out on the phone I cannot feel the steering wheel The psycho Peel me back away from who I am You like the clouds That come out my mouth I drove it south And never said what I think about Drag feet at the lake Small talk I'm a fake Words they click and then defrost away Words are everything They're not anything Hope you hear something I just can't say My teeth fall out on the phone My teeth fall out on the phone My teeth fall out on the phone Drag feet at the lake Small talk I'm a fake Words they click and then defrost away Words are everything They're not anything Hope you hear something I just can't say

We went a little far Now I'm tied up on the pavement Thought you thought of everything to do Now it's too late and you wish you could erase it Hauling bricks To the top of the mountain I keep them in my backpack to throw over the edge keep 'em in my backpack to throw over the edge And I know what I've been doing to you Trying to fit my clothes size I have taken you for granted And I'm wrong Guilt heads at 25 You didn't ask me to, but hey here we are Your heart's so heavy when you're homesick But I can't quit and load up the car Hauling bricks To the top of the mountain I keep them in my backpack to throw over the edge keep 'em in my backpack to throw over the edge And I know what I've been doing to you Trying to fit my clothes size I have taken you for granted And I'm wrong

Planted weeds inside the sand Coffee stains and calculations on your hands Meet me out there by my car I'll be honest, I'm not quite sure who you are Plastic cactus in the hand A box of things that you think make me who I am Maybe you just pulled the sheet Over my eyes and everybody you meet Gotta get away from here And by 'here' I mean every little thing I fear Stranded in the living room I made the bed in my head waiting for the bloom I love all your microorganisms So tell me the truth get it out of your system I see the little lies Ask you how you're doing as I walk by Give you the A to Z At the same time I want sincerity I love all your microorganisms So tell me the truth get it out of your system I love all your microorganisms So tell me the truth get it out Alright I love all your microorganisms So tell me the truth get it out of your system I love all your microorganisms So tell me the truth get it out My mind it squares up Complain and act tough We never thought that our thoughts would become the scary stuff I'm arguing about what's real White knuckle on the steering wheel I wake up wasting half the day And think that I could keel Over on your shoulder So everyday I'm older I don't like how jealous I can get And I feel it smolder Like I'm turning red in embers Some good thing to remember I keep my head above my hands Just keep ticking, moving I'm alright
