Track Name: Black Tar Water
I made myself strong
by getting my skin numb
and loosening up the thumbs
by pumpin' out the black tar water

I made myself real
by rippin' up magazines
and staving off disease
by pumpin' out the black tar water

I made my friends leave
with tightrope at the knees
and laughin' when they sneeze
I'm thrown' up the black tar black tar water

I start to tell it wrong
by singing' in a song
when robbers held up guns
they shootin' out the black tar water

drippin' off follicles
seepin' out my pores
fillin' up my lungs
oh my my

drippin' off follicles
seepin' out my pores
fillin' up my lungs
oh my black tar water
my black tar water
my black tar water
my black tar water
black tar water
Track Name: Fearful Noise
I thought you were the golden god
I thought you were my relatives deceased
the sound of all this burnin' up
in our first atmosphere
in our first atmosphere

fear fear fearful noise
fear fear fearful noise
fear fear fearful noise

Are you a show off crocodile
are you a windmill blade
are you the future paradise
are you a noxious place
are you a noxious place

Are a siren calling out
are the end of days
are you the bells of freedom
or warning they are here
our warning they are here

fear fear fearful noise
fear fear fearful noise
fear fear fearful noise

fear fear fearful noise
fear fear fearful noise
fear fear fearful noise
fear fear
Track Name: Am I a Good One?
I hold my back like I'm carryin' a country
I hold my breath so I don't catch what you carry
I hold my hands waiting' for an honorary degree
I hold my ribs hoping' they aren't empty
they aren't empty

think now
think long and hard
are you good or are you hard to reach
think now
think long and hard
are your words as good as they deserve

you've been doin' it to yourself
-what
you know
you gotta get it from the bottom of your heart
you've been makin' all this worse
-what
you know you know

I fill my journal with the phrase you are not good enough
I fill my mouth with the first thing I can think of
I fill my waking hours with seasons of another person's life
I fill my head with the moments I would never re-live twice

think now
think long and hard
are you good or are you good enough
think now
think long and hard
is your work for anyone but you

you've been doin' it to yourself
-what
you know
you gotta get it from the bottom of your heart
you've been makin' all this worse
-what
you know you know you know

STOP
STOP
-ok
Track Name: Inevitable
They're flexin' Texas while we sweet-dream ourselves
diggin' grave sites in the front yard
slap pommade on your sweet little grandfather
wish daughters on your daughters

inevitable
inhabited bodies won't be habitable
no no emptied like the theater
inevitable
inhabited bodies won't be habitable
no no emptied like revolver

we're mingling and it's tingling our genitalia
download all your best intensions
licking wounds and bending spoons with our telekinesis
we'll stay up just to watch her

inevitable
inhabited bodies won't be habitable
no no emptied like the theater
inevitable
inhabited bodies won't be habitable
no no emptied like, like revolver

the light will fall out your eyes
the wind will blow out your mouth
but we got a match and bellows
to bring you right back

We're flexin' Texas while we sweet-dream ourselves
We're flexin' Texas while we sweet-dream ourselves
We're flexin' Texas while we sweet-dream ourselves
Inevitable!
Track Name: Old Maid
I stay up late
mending shirts and rinsing plates we had out
for your birthday
I rub my body against the banister
and focus my thoughts
on the subtlety of your snore

I don't wanna wake
the household
I don't wanna shake
in my morals

I don't know anymore
if this body has the same allure
if your mind drifts off when you close your eyes
I don't know anymore
if my constant insisting insisting we shake things up
has kept your attention

I rise with the first light
tuck in my good and whisper it's alright
to my heart still in dreamland
I turn the shower all the way cold
hold in my noises and exercise control

I don't wanna wake
the household
I don't wanna shake
in my morals

I don't know anymore
if my lipstick has the same allure
if my hair done up catches any eyes
I don't know anymore
If my constant insisting demanding we try new things
has kept your attention
Track Name: Praise Me
Come lift your arms and praise me
I'm not famous
get my face on the tv screen
come lift your arms and praise me
I'm not famous
and I need to be

Oh I have prayed for years and years
Have I please paid all my dues?
Oh I have worked more than my darndest tootin'
Tell your famous friends about me
Yes I will
yes you will
Yes I will
yes you will
Yes you will

Come lift your arms and praise me
I'm not famous
get my face on the tv screen
come lift your arms and praise me
I'm not famous
and I need to be

Oh I will sign your autographs
Oh I'll use your great ideas too
Oh I will listen and write them down
I'll tell my famous friends about you
Yes I will
yes you will
Yes I will
yes I will
yes you will

Come
Come
Come come
cooooooome
cooooooooome

and
praise
me
I'm not famous
get my face on the tv screen

come lift your arms and praise me
I'm not famous
and I need to be
Track Name: Lion's Den
Let's go in the lion's den
Let's go in the lion's den

Oooh can't have motion sickness
ooh don't want your ribbons showing
yeah, they say
you gotta
you follow your heart
if it's still intact and beating

Let's go in the lion's den
Don't you worry, we're all friends

Oooh can't have yellow fever
ooh don't want your life to start flashing
yeah, they say
you do what
you do what you want
if we're on the sidelines cheering

Let's go in the lion's den
Let's go in the lion's den
Let's go in the lion's den
Let's go in the lion's den

what you think a lion's made of
they're made of endings
they're made of ends

Let's go in the lion's den
Track Name: Am I Happy?
Am I happy
Am I all lit up
Are my heels off the ground
from the magic that surrounds me
Happy
All lit up
Heels off the ground
magic that surrounds me

I'm not like the other girls
disgusting repulsive is right
look at me twice look at me in the eye
I am no usual sight
look at my hair right there
look how much I'm not scared

I'm not like the other girls
I try to say what's on my mind
try not to hold it in
that gets my nose bleeding

I would be tradin' bodies if I could
startin' over if I could
I would talk less listen more if I could
I wanna be like the water
I would talk less listen more if I could
startin' over if I could
I would be tradin' bodies if I could
I wanna be like the water
water

Am I happy
Am I all lit up
Are my heels off the ground
from the magic that surrounds me
Happy
All lit up
Heels off the ground
magic that surrounds me

These are the dark ages
sweatin' like I'm full of holes
gaggin on my wounds
it's the truth
with the banner right in front of me
block letters painted blue

These are the dark ages
shakin' like a dog in snow
late to every meeting though
I'm pryin' off the barnacles
I'm getting myself clean

I would be tradin' bodies if I could
startin' over if I could
I would talk less listen more if I could
I wanna be like the water
I would talk less listen more if I could
startin' over if I could
I would be tradin' bodies if I could
I wanna be like the water
water

Am I happy
Am I all lit up
Are my heels off the ground
from the magic that surrounds me
Happy
All lit up
Heels off the ground
magic that surrounds me
Track Name: No Light at the Bottom
At the bottom of a cave
Lookin' for the day seeping' in
keep my hands on the line
keep my eyes open all the time

underwater so much pushing' in
lookin' for any sign of anything
arm propellers crashin' into nothin'
forever

I don't remember which way's upside upside
I don't remember which way's out
My thoughts are heavying with doubt
I don't remember which way's upside upside
I don't remember which way's out
My mask is heavying with water

Don't want to slow the chaos yet
sink like a silver dollar
in a moment things will all make sense
forever

I don't remember which way's upside upside
I don't remember which way's out
My thoughts are heavying with doubt
(I don't remember, I don't remember)
I don't remember which way's upside upside
I don't remember which way's out
My mask is heavying with water
