Track Name: Country Girls
I'm a steady child but I want you to notice me
I want you to notice me charming
With two's wild I want to show you my deuce
I want to flick on my tunes

Stumbling me I want to spark in my shit
I want to shit in my phone

Step right into my country
my paws may come and loosen
your neck on the ways
to my country
girls
girls

Steady muse lifting it up with my tongue
ripping it up in my stomach

Stained anger I want to glazen the mood
I want to flick on my tunes

Finishing light I want to show you my height
I want to break in my kite

Whistling to my wishing my walk
may come and loosen ya
come out high stepping
with my country
girls
girls
Track Name: Drum Soup
Whisk a mice stone ways to mind
Whist a mine tone ways to moan
Wake an eye cone wake a tease
Own my waking knees

Work a mean foam make a find
Make a wet phone make a tone
Break in a store make a mars
Fore my face ways cars

Oh we're still trying ears
Oh we're still trying ears
Oh they're still trying ears
Oh bear still trying ears
Oh bear still dying gears
Go bear the dying gears
Oh we're still trying ears
Go bear the dying gears

Pain a state cone ways to pine
Pail lice dome mace to meas
Wolf and I don't want to tan
Open up my man

Breed a stain whore brace to time
Oak core ice stow bake a bone
Laiden eye noir oaf for nine
Par is open wide

Oh we're still trying ears
Oh we're still trying ears
Oh they're still trying ears
Oh bear still trying ears
Oh bear still dying gears
Go bear the dying gears
Oh we're still trying ears
Go bear the dying gears
Track Name: Find Your Hand
I sink in some pool I make
foolish thoughts
dripping and popping through cracks my ears made

I aint tiptoeing no more
or snowing
myself in the house for days

I will (quit staring and waiting, get tying tying off)
be destroying (a quick slip and we're tasting and tying, tying off)
forcing (throw yourself on top the currents)
focusing in on it alright (carve yourself alright)

ante up the soul hums
ante up the soul hums

still I drift naked at times
flailing and sinking at times
the fly won't stop to get into it
the fly won't stop to get into it

standing alone at times
or standing on water at times

the fly won't stop to get into it
the fly won't stop to get into it

ey ey ey ey ey ey ey ey ey ey

ante up the soul hums
ante up the soul hums
Track Name: No Boys Allowed
Hey tonight stay and you'll be
a girl in lights to sway to swing
oh cause you need it soon
and oh cause you need it soon
and oh cause you need it soon
and oh cause you need it soon

I'd do anything to embrace
hey two baking lights and two souls
to find, to awaken to the taste
I'd, to weigh, to stew it, debate it, to woo it

I'd, to stop and wink and tease oh
and to find it I might need a day
awake alright it'd take a day
well I might need to find a way

to open up my taste in clothes
and to open up my leg expose it
to open up my wasted tomb
and to bring it back to life

and I'd, well it can't get too intense
well don't
well you fake it too many times
oh don't
don't fake it too many times
your ace
sits a flake on the table


no boys allowed (repeated)
whoooooooooooooooooo


Hey tonight touch and you'll be
womankind to sink to swing
only standing in waist high painted jeans
understated but I get stoned with these
misty rings and wicked T these clothes
when on her the party's the way she goes

Understanding a signal time moves slowly
I'm a stranger walking the street
I'm trying to hold it
Strangers walking with me
I bet we're all freaks yeah/ a bit all on fleek yeah
I might go swimming away cause I contain this

Oh goddamn it open your eyes and open your mouth
always spitting it away or shitting it out
its the same guy
the same guy
the same guy
oh busted by the rest of the same guy

Oh goddamn it we're wasting time this day
Oh stop turning away blind this day
Always when instincts go climbing inside
awakened trouble will hide it now how many times

wheeeeeeee
I'd like to go
Swiiiiiiiiinging
Track Name: Blowfish
Hey sweetheart
I know I load you down
well I've laid you in woes to drown
whoa
you
stumbled then you cried
then you came to
life
yeah you bathed in it
oh oh
well if I'm stumbling like I do
well if I'm stumbling
well if I'm
stumbling

or seeming hesitant like I do
becoming distracted like I do
would it make a difference what I'd
told you

you've heard so many different stories
you've heard so many different stories
like
why
don't you trust in me sometimes
don't you just keep trusting me
sometimes

hell I just keep you working

got all of this "to-do" over it
"to-do" over it
to fly aint it
to fly aint it
to float to float to float to float
to float on along

funny if I tried enough
whoa
funny if I tried enough
it'd be
sign me up perfect enough
yes
funny if I tried enough

whoa oh
well if I come to you like I do
well if I come to you
well if I come to you
could you take a second like you do
would you rip a joke like you do
would it make a difference what I've done to you
I've learned so many different sayings
I've learned so many different sayings
like why
don't you listen to me sometimes
don't you listen to me sometimes

babe I'm gonna keep on working

got all of this "to-do" over it
"to-do" over it
to fly aint it
to fly aint it
to float to float to float to float
to float on along
Track Name: Gone Fishin
Only a simple thing
Only a swing set
Only a simple thing
Only a tired catch

Maybe you'll start whistling again
Maybe I'll buy you some gloves
A pair of tickets in your hands
Slip a snickers in your pocket

I'll pick up in the room
I'll never do you harm
I'll guarantee those eyes
I will keep on the line

Starting a quiet squirm
Quietly tasting a worm
Spent all our love on this time
Could you open your eyes

You've gone fishing
Gone fishing
Gone fishing
Gone fishing

Mine is a yogurt dish
Mine is a heavy word
Mine is a craft club
Mine is a tall bird

Maybe I'll sweep up the floors
Maybe I'll paint the walls
Maybe I'll tag along
Maybe I'll tag
but you're

Gone
Gone
Gone

Gone Fishing
Gone Fishing
Gone Fishing

I'll find an afternoon
Go get a haircut
I'll try a new lunch
I'll try a new lunch

I'll start budgeting
I'll start sleeping again
I'll start calling my friends
and you'll start

Fishing
Fishing
Fishing
Track Name: Polka
Oh is this my reason pained
all this wrestling I'll feel it
when I awake
I'll feel it when I wake up

So much on my list to grind
you can hold my empty handedness
but it's all I have
to contribute to you

All this drift cements the night
I'll spend all my tired cash
yes, oh yes
I'll shake to bed and I'll
sleep all night

Oh would you calm down
Oh would you calm down
Oh Oh Oh
Would you calm down
Oh would you calm down

Have I found my strength tonight
Oh my courage is rewinded
Every time it's played back there's fuzz

Looking at my shadow's eyes
He says why won't you enjoy yourself tonight
I know you can

Oh I'm troubled wondering
What if someone just walks in
Sees me moving around
My hands on myself

Oh would you come down
Oh would you come down
Oh Oh Oh would you come down
Oh would you come down

This day's way stoned kicks into my pasty tones
Finds a wake in love well it's this enduring that's taking off
Well what should I be thinking of
Well hey should my intentions greet me
looking at my blinking doves
or listening to my hell-held times
oh god man I'll shake your love
seeing what I'm thinking should do it
Backstage my fingers curled up
up around something and I twirled it
oh god man my stomach I hurled it
have you been awake all night too?

oooh with your baby love
oooh with your baby love
oooh with your baby love
oooh with your baby love
oooh with your baby love
oooh with your baby love
oooh with your baby love
oooh with your baby love
Track Name: Self, Ok
Met him in the dark
Met him in a thick he said
loosen up your heart and make it whistle
oh tenderness

Well what am I to do
what am I to do
but start inking up my face
and make a title
of myself, ok

What am I to drink
what am I to do but drink
juices that have been
dripping out my sink, ok

A needle in the mass
a needle with the heat is that hot
can you poke it in the
heart so I know

Stones thrown how about I go home
Life sucks how about I give up
Tricky friends how about I hurt them
Thick lies how about my whole life

wishing bones
wet my dry tender eyes
drop my brow release crying
release my care lift my spine

think there was a message
something like a street cone
walking to my walking to my walking to my...

met him in the dark
met him in a thick he said loosen up loosen up loosen...

walking to my car I'm trying to think did I feel good by myself
loosen up my heart and make it whistle oh tenderness

must have been a moment
something that I read maybe
making me go smile when I heard
a whistle a-who-ooooh, ok

there's probably a man
maybe there's a slew of them
acting like they're paid to say
hide hide hide
it's waste of time

well what am I to do
what am I to do now that my walking
goes something like a dance move does
man does it move

stones thrown how about I go home
life sucks how about I give up
thick lies
how about my whole life

wishing bones
wet my dry tender eyes
drop my brow release my crying
release my care lift my spine
crack my stiff shivering thighs
take my thoughts relieve my mind
my pride hangs chapped all the time
so balm that chap all the time
my fly's open all the time
so swing it low swing it high
Track Name: Birds Fucking
Hey man
Don't you get it
On this day
You can be brave and focused

Brea-ea-ea-eaking in two
Just say so
If you are breaking in two
Always just say, just say, just say, just say
Say, just say, just say, just say so now repeat after me

Pain, I will take my pain
Space, I will take my space
And be happier than bees who've just
Gotten in from flower plucking or
Two birds power
Fucking fucking fucking fucking
Fucking fucking fucking fucking
Fucking fucking fucking fucking

There's two lanes going away from your home
That makes two places for traffic cones
Hey-ey, hey-ey, hey-ey, hey-ey
I've got a full tank we're making it
Hey-ey, hey-ey, hey-ey, hey-ey
I've got solar panels we'll make it

I too am disturbed in my mind
But my soul, our soul
Survives

It's too soon to say we're good
But your ways
Our ways will do
Will do

Know what I mean
