Track Name: Happy Fucking Birthday
HAPPY FUCKING BIRTHDAY •
HAPPY FUCKING BIRTHDAY I MADE UP THIS LIE ABOUT YOU. I TOLD YOUR
DAUGHTER THAT YOU ONLY PRETEND TO LOVE HER. I’LL DRAG YOU THROUGH TWELVE MONTHS OF BULLSHIT. THEN I’LL EXPECT YOU TO STILL BE STANDING. STILL BE
STANDING. THE GIRL YOU THOUGHT YOU KNEW. SHE NEVER EXISTED.
SHE NEVER EXISTED AT ALL.
Track Name: Rat Pellet
RAT PELLET •
GIVE ME THE RAT PELLET GIVE ME THE CURE, TO THIS BOREDOM, I CAN’T TAKE IT ANY MORE. DEATH BY INACTION IT’S ALL THE SAME, JUST ANOTHER CHANCE TO WASTE AWAY MY BRAIN. ALL I WANT ARE INSTANT GRITS, ALL I WANT IS TO SEE YOUR TITS. ALL I WANT IS AUTOMATIC PLEASURE. GIVE ME IMMEDIATE GRATIFICATION. GIVE ME THAT CIGARETTE, HAND ME THAT BEER, I CAN’T STAND TO THINK ABOUT MY FEAR, OF FAILING OF FALLING IN LOVE OF PUSHING MYSELF TO SAY NO TO THESE DRUGS. I WON’T GO ON I WON’T LOOK BACK, JUST HAND ME A SMOKE AND I’LL FEEL RELAXED. IGNORING ALL LOGIC NO WILL POWER, I DON’T THINK I’LL SURVIVE ANOTHER HOUR. CALL ME COWARD ADMITTING DEFEAT, OR CALL ME A CAB, I’VE GOT LAZY FEET.
Track Name: Fall Again
FALL AGAIN •
I SAID MY PRAYERS TONIGHT. I PRAYED THAT YOU WOULD BE ALRIGHT. I PRAYED THAT YOU COULD SLEEP. I SAID MY PRAYERS TONIGHT. I PRAYED THAT YOU COULD UNDERSTAND I PRAYED THAT YOU COULD SEE, THAT I CAN’T GO ON KNOWING YOU ARE STRUGGLING TO BREATHE. PLEASE DON’T GIVE UP TONIGHT, I KNOW EVERYTHING WILL BE ALRIGHT. THE FALLEN FALL AGAIN.
Track Name: July 22nd
JULY 22ND •
WELL I’M GOING ON THIS TRIP, YEAH I’M GOING ON THIS TRIP AND I’LL BE BACK WHEN I’M DONE, I’LL BE BACK WHEN I’M DONE, I HOPE I DON’T DIE AND I HOPE I DON’T CRY CAUSE THIS IS MY GOODBYE, YEAH THIS IS MY GOODBYE, IT’S NOT A SUICIDE, THIS IS MY GOODBYE, THIS IS MY GOODBYE, RIGHT! WELL I CAME BACK TODAY, I’M PRETTY PROUD TO SAY I SAW THE OTHER SIDE, I SAW THE OTHER SIDE. WELL I GOT REAL HURT AND I JUMPED AND I KICKED AND I YELLED AND I BIT AND I THINK I LOST MY SHIT, WELL THE COPS THEY CAME AND THEY LOCKED ME UP AND THEY PUT ME IN CHAINS AND THEY PUMPED ME FULL OF DRUGS, BUT I THINK THAT’S OKAY CAUSE WHILE I WAS GONE I THINK I SAW GOD, I THINK I SAW GOD.
Track Name: Landlord
LANDLORD •
YOU GOTTA GOTTA GET AS MUCH AS YOU CAN FUCK WHAT’S FAIR PUT THAT CASH IN MY HAND, DRIVEN BY NUMBERS CONSTRUCT THE PLAN. MAP OUT THE MONTHLY PROFITS DRIVE UP THE RENT. CHARGE MORE FOR LESS. DESIGN THEM TO FAIL. TRUST IS NOT AN ISSUE, IT DOESN’T EXIST. TRUST IS NOT AN ISSUE WE ONLY NEED THIS LIST OF PREARRANGED AGREEMENTS TO INSURE YOUR DEBT. DON’T DISOBEY THIS PAPER. DON’T DISOBEY THIS THING YOU SIGNED. YOU’LL SIGN YOUR NAME ON THE DOTTED LINE. WATCH YOURSELF WALK A STRAIGHT LINE.
Track Name: Look
LOOK •LOOK! I’M GONNA JUMP OFF THE DEEP END. DON’T YOU WANNA DO IT TOO. FUCK.
Track Name: The Benefit of Fish Tacos
THE BENEFIT OF FISH TACOS •WOAH. IT SEEMS ITS HAPPENED ONCE AGAIN. I’VE SET MYSELF UP TO BE
HEARTBROKEN. BY THE TIME I’VE LEAPT. I’VE FELT MY FALL AGAINST THE
HARDWOOD FLOOR. WON’T YOU SAVE ME FROM THIS MESS? THIS
LONELINESS INSIDE MY HEAD? I’LL GIVE YOU THE BENEFIT OF EVERYSIGNLE DOUBT.
Track Name: I can't, I won't, I can't, I won't, I can't, I won't,Give Up
I CAN’T, I WON’T, I CAN’T, I WON’T, I CAN’T, I WON’T GIVE UP •
THIS IS THE LAST TIME, YOU’LL HEAR ME SAY THIS. THIS IS THE LAST TIME, THAT I’LL DISPLAY THIS. FIX YOUR OWN LIFE. TELL SOMEONE ELSE. YOU WILL REGRET THE THINGS THAT YOU SAID TO ME. YOU WILL REGRET THE THINGS THAT YOU’VE DONE TO YOURSELF. I CAN’T, I WON’T, I CAN’T, I WON’T, I CAN’T, I WON’T GIVE UP.
