Track Name: Centrecult
when i think of which order it goes in
i find it weird that i could ever forget
in a second im a granite goliath
with a meteor space worth of chest
as of lately i have been levitating
involuntarily, when im upset
i brought a souvenir back here to play with
ill tell you all about it after ive left

wrapped all around you
im a christmas sweater
and i smile inside
because i know that
i am better than
i was in the darkness
vision equals palms
mission equals harm
mission equals harm

warm and alone
monochrome inner city
and i smile inside
because i know that
i am prettier than him
on the fire escape smoking darts
center of my thoughts
center of my thoughts

and then everybody knows
aha aha
everybodys seen what theres to be seen
im the disembodied charm of a seesaw
youre the disembodied teeth of a dream
welcome to the communal indictment
lift the gossip and make me clean
and then everybody knows
aha aha
i am dan and people understand me

look at the poor boy on the bridge
feed him a cracker and make him wretch
put him into bed with the window shut
feed him a cracker and make him drunk
hold him close
dont let go
push him now
push him far
watch him melt
by himself
he will stick
he is tar
Track Name: Submarine Green
a dog will do
just about anything for food
so im thinking i should choke
every single hope i have for you

so i feel like a dog in pursuit
a submarine set to implode in the ocean so
tell her i said no
tell her i told you no

i know things you wish youd done
i know things that he just cant
even when i eat it up
even when i eat it up


you got inside my head
Track Name: Industrial Compactor
baby in my skin
i will crush him from within
i will crush him from outside
i will rip out every eye

and he'll still follow you around like a plague

baby from within
i will dissolve all the sin
and your skin will start to burn
so ill clean off all the dirt

and he'll still follow you around like a curse

i am very warm
let me universe my arms
let me pinch your little palms
i will punch your little palms

he will try to charm

everything is here
i know everything is here
for i am this soul of love
as i am this hole of fear

and i'll undo the rope as he brings you near

its only all it is
Track Name: Christ
they go coming
out to get me
i am nothing
i am nothing

will be throbbing
will be thrashing
heavy breathing
bit of anger

and he doesnt
doesnt deserve you
hes an asshole
he will hurt you

did you think that
you could leave this
he will throw his
on the highway

are you with him
christ has risen
its a big deal
its a big deal

make it spinning
make it blurring
its a big deal
its a big deal

have a single
got a double
im in trouble

he is healthy
he is humble
im in trouble
Track Name: Impweight
lady mangled
babys hanging out with the wrong crowd
she is hinging like a closet door corner
scraping on the ground

i remember
i remember
i remember
i remember it
large jaw swollen talking normalcy
whiskey sipping cigarettes

here i am
with a bottle in my hand
and a column in my head
saying you're so good

here you are with
a plan to pull apart
and a man to fuck up
with a you're no good

even peter mary caesar
and the others are all drunk
and as gremlins
all your friends are annoying as fuck

baby frenzy
your perceptions
all perceptions are now off
small jaw holding conversation
sober crying kettle cross

here i am
with a bottle in my hand
and a column in my head
saying you're so good

here you are with
a plan to pull apart
and a man to fuck up
with a you're no good
Track Name: July
i am coming
you cant prevent me
theres nothing left to do

i saw you standing
your brain expanding
in the living room

you see nothing
yeah you know nothing
but you will do what she wants

around the corner
stored in the closet
packed up safe in the dark
Track Name: Exhibition 4 Was Particularly Bad
she paused
to stop
the wildfire

after
before
it goes away

i like
to think
that she
was you

it goes
away
so soon
you goon

this is the worst one you've done

she rests
on the bed
she sleeps
on your leg

you know
that she
is fucking your head

you need
her voice
to call
your phone

but theres
no noise
tonight
its alone

this is the worst one you've done

and i feel
i feel
i feel so
Track Name: Stripes
i found your letter
in my top drawer
i know you're forgetting
what happened before

i hope you're happy
i know you're happy now
Track Name: Leave It Alone
i lost my eyes
for the third fucking time this year
it burned fiery red
when the sight came back to my head

then i apologized
when i had no reason to do so
it filled in my mouth
with the dirt in your couch
now im choking up here
where your roots grow

i got so drunk
my brain got too heavy to hold
and know your head is bloody
with my newly external thoughts

i lost my front
i got spray painted black
and now no one can see me
in the calm suburban dark

if you come in here with me there will be something waiting for you
if you come in here with me there will be something that has grown
if you come in here with me there you will see things that were meant to die
if you come in here with me you beg me to leave it alone
Track Name: Growth
holding hands
we ought to kill this man
we brought a plague that dampens dreams
and blackens his days into charcoal

i know its bad
oh we got the gist of that
the more we make
we stab the seams
and staple on his little barcode

he says everything
feels kind of obsolete
and that hes not as healthy
as the boy you saw

and then i fret
because theres something
i dont get
and theres nothing
he would do to know about it less

back off my bones
get off my flesh
go look for the rest

because i can't find your sense of fairness
i can't find your self awareness
dont you know you're fucking selfish


i wont trust
the people i disgust
as they take the past
to pasteurize
and pulverise it into CHUTNEY

loss of love
the type i can't speak of
im no ruiner
i am numb
its lovely
i am numb
so watch me

clean up the rest
factory reset
back to being happy
and occasionally depressed

you'll soak it up
you'll wake to open arms
no more hand in hand
you have made a mess
you have made a mess

i say sorry through my teeth
you cover me in gasoline

i can't find your sense of fairness
i can't find your self awareness
don't you know youre fucking selfish

you dont know what growth you impose
so dont act close to me
but in the end i guess the best was meant to be
