Stellate 04:09
I'll hold you from your small How about that? How about that? You made me medium tall I'll make you feel good again You made your car a vacuum You pulled over too So when you let me out I owed my life to you I wanna get you sedated Like when it all began I wanna play you records I like I wanna hold your hand I wanna let it all go I swear I swear I do Show me where you are stellate I'll stick the needle through you know it but i can say it for you you know it but i can say it for you And when the heat showed up you wouldn't open the door i locked myself in and laid down on the bathroom floor I put another vellum between my face and yours so through the vellum you'd discern my face from yours You know it but i can say it for you You know it but i can say it for you I wanna wake you up Show you the boat I bought I wanna go sailing with you to someplace we are not You buy me a big bucket I scream into that And when it overflows You want your money back You know it but i can say it for you

Triptych 03:06
keeping you awake keeping you awake on purpose hey did i make a mistake and do my mistakes worsen? i would give it up to every man i love i take what i can get and every woman too i would too that's my only secret left i will entertain your feet or your hands for a triptych sell me at the strand on the stands for a fat brick i get what i want and your girlfriend too make a predator of me i'll be good to you i'm worth it you i'm worth it so before i turn it off little light at my bedstand ask me what i thought of the life that i lead and i'll take off your pants say goodnight to the ears there put you where i sing in the light in the damp air i'll be good to you i'll be good to you i'm the moving mouth moving mouth with my eyes closed breathing an excuse breathing loose through my new nose i will buy a round on your dime like i used to feeding you my cake you my cake eating it too i'll be good to you i'll be good to you

after i cut up my thigh climbing over that fence with you brave and unnatural already shrouded in reds and blues i was so scared i had tetanus i checked on it every night purple and yellow the pregnable skin was so coarse and tight and now i hope it does not heal now i hope it does not heal you hope i'm blind but i give you big what and say it again whipping your head tryna hide behind hair that has not grown yet i will stand in for an older me if you say i trust you give me your hand gonna bite off however much i can chew and i hope you do not heal i hope you do not heal turn down evening comes all smooth and licked up i'm tough i'm tough but i hope i do not heal i hope i do not heal

Waverly 02:49
there's a restaurant in the east village where all the waiters are celebrities my first love waited hours in the back making brazen advances towards waverly there is lore of a movie star leaving his number for her on an old receipt all i know is that she didn't call him what a mystery, waverly hey i live across the street and wanted to know if you'd be my friend won't call again i'm a patron dressed up like a person i'm a creature instead of me dark at night and sunlight in the morning decide that i'll try aging gracefully here are all of my friends and my parents this is my birthday party you can push all the tables together but you can't pull one over on waverly hey i live across the street and wanted to know if you'd be my friend won't call again

Winnebago 02:44
you said bug i think i love you bug i said ya i think you love me too even though you made me cry tonight nothing poisonous and nothing new so i hurled myself into the pool and i danced for all the party guests i do only ever as i want and especially when it's a test why you shaking? why you shaking? you said it don't matter how you sing when you sing we know the reason why and your body's just the housing thing for the song that i'm confounded by why am i shaking? why am i shaking? i wanna be your poetry i'm sick and tired of bluffin you said when you get over me you'll finally get it published i think they're gonna love it drinkin mezcal like we're at the bar chase it with what i was gonna say i know why i'm going where you are and why i will find you on the way
10.
Minnesota 03:01
there is a place between your shoulder and chest which i would rather not leave and when you let the drippings of the thing fall around me i am just wet and afraid and screaming your name fuck if your one sliced hand is not the keeper of the back of my neck i came alive this morning with a pit in my stomach because i'd rolled to the other side if i missed you in the night i guess i'm goina minnesota huh? i guess i'm goina minnesota huh? keeping your mouth real dry so that my words will not dissolve on your tongue but i don't need to talk by some disgusting accident of communion fuck my feet i'm tryna cross the street but they keep goina minnesota huh? i guess i'm goina minnesota huh? i'm sneaking up without my manners scripture sink my teeth into the book where you keep your secrets about me kissing to trick you into easing your grip so i can steal that shit and take it home from minnesota with me i guess i'm goina minnesota huh?
11.
We're in a tin box and I've got a toothpick and i have been poking the air Somebody gave you a knife for your birthday I think I know who but that's not my affair So I dance down the street like I'm miss Angelina My legs are so grounded and strong And I'm not afraid that if i am the skipper I'll steer my flesh into the bog But is there something in the movies that's better than my love? Is there something in the movies that's better than my love? Carried around a stuffed pig in my arms and i did it until i was five I got it from someone who died of attention and lived an extraordinary life But i gave it to you on the day that we met cause already i trusted you best Everyone dies but they shouldn't die young anyway you're invited to set Is there something in the movies that's better than my love? is there something in the movies that's better than my love? I left you in life cause you don't need my pen to embellish your noteworthy parts And I only write songs about things that I'm scared of So here, now you're deathless in art You've got this and the movies and also my love You can have it all baby I'm giving it up
