Track Name: SWIM
his mouth it tastes like candy
his lips are razorblades
the heat is almost soothing
i'm sweating in the shade

his skin is soft and wet
his eyes are window shades
i'm sweating out the toxins
i'm sweating in the shade

it almost feels like drowning
i can't feel him on my skin
i'm so high
it'll never die
no one taught me how to swim

that's all in my mind
each and every time

he saw me in the bathroom
don't try to hold my hand
i tried to leave my body
i was another man

i don't want to forget
negative bone in my flowerbed
his breath was warm and wet
repeating what he thought i said

"don't tell me you don't want this"
it's a game that no one wins
"you're out in open water,
no one taught you how to swim"

come on in it's fine
worth your weight in wine

a night of symmetry
passed out in the bed i made
another losing fight
oh i'm sweating in the shade

i can't swim

i'm going to self destruct
disaster at my wim
too much is just enough
no one taught me how to swim

i can't swim
Track Name: SHADETHROWER
i was sitting at home
i was sitting alone
i had something to say

write a short little book
about the way that you look
when you're running away

you're a sunburn
you're a beach
i'm a sucker
you're a leech

driving by your house
i fell asleep on your couch
i never know where you stay

every dumb little kiss
you're on a short little list
i wanna give it away

saw you on the street
you're so sickening sweet
i had something to say

about such a colorful world
another boy or a girl
would never make it okay

you're a sunburn
you're a beach
i'm a sucker
you're a leech

la la la la la

i was sitting at home
i was sitting alone
i had something to say

shadow casting doubt
you're always out and about
you're always in my way

you're a sunburn
you're a beach
i'm a sucker
Track Name: GUT
tomb death bad breath
bad boy nut

bad brain cum stain
film grain butt

empty wordsi just made up
inside outside backslide
gut

clothes come off, my door is shut
tastes like blood, you suck my cuts

morning light and i wanna fuck
inside outside backslide
gut

oh but i don't care
when you're standing there
you got it in my hair
oh but i don't

list of things i'll never tell
all your secrets start to swell

love to lie and wish you well
see your gap toothed grin in hell

tomb death bad breath
bad boy nut

bad brain cum stain
film grain butt

empty head you're just my luck
inside outside backslide
gut

oh but i don't care
when you're standing there
your life is so unfair
oh my i don't care
Track Name: 13
cough it up it's draining out
sandbag me
13

cough it up
13

drag it out she's burning up
credit card
16

drag it out
16

suck it up, he's leaving now
vacancy
19

give it back
take 3
Track Name: EYESORE
it's my last word
about last night
i feel stupid
i brought flowers to a fist fight
fatal flaw that
you can't ignore
may be pink
but the elephant's an eyesore
oh i'm awful
at application
always checked out
i'm always on vacation
you're a barbell
with a soft core
underneath it
is a feeling i would die for

my body is confusion
and i'm talking through my teeth
cuz i'd pick a fight to fuck you
and i'm rolling up my sleeves

take a nose dive
off the deep end
i get drunk
and spend my money on the weekend
always looking
for a discount
but i'm awful
eating shit on the dismount
you're a pillar
of discussion
always smiling
always saying that it's nothing
but you're quiet
on our ride home
eyes out the window
and you're looking for a payphone

in the best reception
send a message you'll receive
cuz my heart is on a bender
and i wear it on my sleeve

you're a bad vibe
i imagine
love is simple
but it put us in a tailspin
it was messy
like a car crash
he was laughing
he was basking in the whiplash

eyes are heavy on the drive home
so i'll let you take the wheel
stars are dead determination
but i wonder how I feel
