What's the grab I have? To yank the needles hidden arm I'll scrape dust with a gasoline rag And within a week Detects the earliest form alive from symptoms of a virus that's bad But a cactus is my fear now People turn It's all too real Mirrors grasp my steering wheel The rocks begin to hollow There's nothing inside Long lizards tend to borrow small pants of mine Sun guy has struck a deal With water and gale The driest of my life But great and it's right To watch it survive The cactus inside
Armor 03:40
If you find it on the bridge then you could leave it there If its hanging from a tree, well you could leave it there If its lying on the beach well you could leave it there... And if you see me on the street I hope you don't get scared I don't wanna be tough, I wear My armor in the sun to sweat out all my secret tears And all the boys think I'm their mom They gotta tell that secret to someone Well they could leave it there. If its lying on the beach well they could leave it there I know you really wanna keep it, ?? YOU COULD LEAVE IT THERE. And if you see me on the street I hope you come prepared, I don't wanna be tough, I wear My armor in the sun to sweat out all my secret tears And all the boys think I'm their mom They gotta tell that secret to someone
Cryyy 03:31
When there are prices on Your friends and families' heads What's just a hobby to some Becomes a weapon instead To slither again That is, if you've read that script
Minting 04:02
Your nose is as far as you can see Your purr is the mask you wear to be Take just one mint from the jar Your hand has a part in what kills me Your take is the last I heard before Take one more mint from the jar That's the spot that I was hired The spot of a A cavity's right hand I watch the deadlines crowd Fearing the rafters all threaten to fold And there's just two mints to go That's the spot that i was fired Macavity's love child I Watch the deadlines burn While the rafters commenced their descent Oh there's just one more mint left The coin is in the minting process
Wheel Hand 05:21
I looked up from my paper Across the infinite plains By the last light of the skyline I saw shapes I wont even try to describe or justify And I'm afraid But I'm Climbing And I'm climbing up the side of my grave On the sides of my grave I find notes, Notes that say things like "You've done this before honey. You're probably going to do this again" So if It looks to you like I'm in a hurry Know I'm not running away I'm just getting tired of acting like I don't know what's lying in wait Or at stake And if i don't look in your eyes I might just be scared for your sake It means the world to me to Name the troubles at this stage It's where the bulk of us were raised How do you expect to get ahead of that wave? Tugging and enveloping myself all the way I was handed these keys And now I am the valet I'm Driving towards next pay day Well you can hear the giant letting out a sigh as we melt in the sunlight You can feel the velvet on the lining of my cape Don't think I don't see you behind me in the grocery line About to say something like "Wow, you look interesting" AND I KNOW, ALRIGHT? My shoes are so tight all I can even do is look down at my own feet That's why I'm liquefying I'm aiming to be the Grid and the Snake I'd stare forever at anything that doesn't mind I'm not trying to separate my life from Some Shit I'm Imagining Someone Else Would Say And I'm giving you knowing glances And I'm hoping you can relate
Saturn 03:42
Saturn is the birthplace of lies For the house of sirens need to get flying While a murder hides to roam in beds The sitting duck had torn its ligament tending upwards And the couch I built from seaweed Was cooking in the sun It smelled like scissors As it marched around the holy space - where seagulls landed once But I've met my match It's the last batch I'll bake A score for the visitor's house I'll make And I've met your dad He pushed a rake my way No more with the garden, my green thumb is turning grey
