Track Name: Bulk Heads
bulk heads
break than bend
forget to make amends

it was
now its lasting too long
and i will never feel that way again
it was

and im ok with it but it still makes me cry

bulk heads
break than bend
Track Name: Coyote
it's a couple years from now
and i'm having my spleen ripped out
coyote den mother is watching as her babies feed
teethe babies teethe
just leave some for mommy
i figure the best way to contribute to nature is to bleed

and o, it hurts
but i'm happy to have a purpose
and o, it hurts
but i'm happy to at least be something

it's a couple years from now
Dec. 2019
snow it on the ground
and everything looks cherry slushie
the coyotes are gone
my breathing slows down
finally i realize what it means to be alive

thank you Mother Earth
for giving this useless un pure body some worth
thank you mother earth i couldn't be any happier
Track Name: Leave Land (shore)
i don't want the land no more
i put my life jacket on and leave the shore
i don't need the land any more
i head out to sea and leave the shore

i don't need the land
i leave the shore
Track Name: Water Spider
i walked into the shower
with a water spider
they said not to worry
let me show you something
when they dug their fangs into
my outside organs
the blood trickled down
and i saw something

there's finger prints in my blood
there's finger prints in my blood
don't know how they got there but i'm pretty sure they're yours
your fingers prints are in my blood

*conversation between me and water spider*

there's finger prints in my blood
not sure how they got there but i'm pretty sure they're yours
there's finger prints in my blood
not sure how they got there but i'm pretty sure they're yours
Track Name: Groundhog (day)
broken
and painted
power
outlets
candle
wax and
little
trinkets

driving you alone and theres nothing that i can say to comfort you

its so quiet in this car that i can hear the tires throw the pebbles

i roll down the window for fear that im breathing too loud

no ones in the back but i can feel eyes on my neck

groundhog went back
Track Name: Ali (car)
watch the tiny cars go by
they have their jobs they have their lives
but i wish they'd bring my friends into town

stick your thumb out more like this, i wish my car didn't break down but it now we gotta deal with it

i really wish that i could say
i can get you home sound and safe
but i cant right now

stick your thumb out more like this, theres gotta be a friendly car that wants to pick you up


watch the tiny road
watch the little cars
go one by one
each after each other

watch the old houses
shift by the wind blow
each leaning on each other, depending on the others
old bones

you can leave if you want
but i need to stay with my car
and i kind of enjoy the feeling
of being stranded

i didn't wish for my car
to break down but it did
and now
i gotta deal with it
Track Name: stumbling into Dec.
i've never had a good Nov.
ever since i've been alive
and although im still awake
i feel as though i've never survived (one before)
but i still stumble into Dec.
where the air is so much harsher
something feels right within the snow
something about New England grieving together gives me hope

i've never had a good Nov.
ever since i've been alive
and although i'm still awake
i've never survived (one before)
still i stumble into Dec.
where i hope things will be better
Track Name: Bones are under/Roots are in the
most bones
never see the sunlight
unless they're unlucky enough

all bones
have to break or snap
to be loved
or acknowledged

you're like a little tiny femur
hard to break
but not impossible

your bones
are branches to a tree
roots in the dirt
rocks and leaves

bones are under skin

roots are in the ground

your bones
are branches to a tree
roots in the dirt
rocks and leaves

you're like a little tiny femur
hard to snap
but not impossible

most bones
never see the sunlight
unless they're unlucky enough

bones are under skin

roots are in the ground
Track Name: Caw Caw! bird speak (instrumental)
caw
Track Name: cherry
cherry tomato breath
breathing down my neck
lips tasting of liquor
what'd i tell ya about your liver

you've touched parts of me i cant ignore
i would show you but i know that you hate gore
i've touched parts of you you can't ignore
you would show me but you know we are no more
Track Name: Dwight vs. Naruto
i never want to see your face again (...)
but its so hard with the internet
please stop doing this
please stop doing this
Track Name: Day 3 (coughing)
i'm not scared
i'm petrified
i'm petrified

i'm not talking
i am coughing
for now on
for now on
Track Name: a wall a wall a wall
i've hit a wall a wall a wall
i was too distracted by the rain fall
and how each brake light
reflects off the street

i looked over behind my seat
to see a man laughing hysterically
although he also couldn't see
he kept on at full speed
until his car met the seat

i've hit a wall a wall a wall

but you were in my passenger and that's when you said to me at least you're not that man going full speed into the sea

i've hit a wall a wall a wall

and you said
you cant turn back
this street only goes one way
you cant break the wall down
but you can go around the bend
and try to avoid it next time
just hope you're lucky
