Track Name: 17
I was once 17
now bow to me
I'm a living organism
or a dying dream
stained on young nicotine teeth
defaced with sickness we receive
like the unholiest loneliness
we only seem to perceive
I was once 17
I was once a wet dream in between
your nightmares conceived
with a gashing of passion
you bleed
like you want to be 17

I was once 17
and you were once like me
fist-splt the chain-link
pour yourself
another drink
ah, such a poets wet dream
Track Name: Party Down The Street
went to that party down the street, they were dancing on tables and drowning in their sleep. I got so drunk I forgot who I was, my face lit up like a question mark.
and somehow I made it home, had an argument with the glass in my front door. I got so drunk I forgot who I was, my face lit up like a question

here's to the gravel apathy, the winding of springs. at the party down the street I'll be reading magazines
slip some codeine in my tea, we'll get wasted and weird together. here's to the sunsets on your headstone, we're cool now, I'm thankful
Track Name: Carpet Farm
a couple notes on your lion teeth
file me down, quote a book of poetry
some little kid's epileptic fits, honey i don't give a shit
just let me dance for your money

cuz i don't wanna cause you any harm
i'll sleep on the carpet but not to carpet farm

you lay awake while I fall asleep
your mind's alive listening to my heartbeat
to my blood beat

i don't wanna cause you any harm
i'll sleep on the carpet but not to carpet farm
