Track Name: DUI
if i could sing a song for you
i'd tell you that the sky is blue
if i could sing a song for her
i'd pull all these little words
out of my body

tell me how to feel real

i'm a swimming pool full of electric eels
i'm the millionth mosquito on your windshield
and you've got something coming if you think that i'm afraid of driving home

if i could make the world less bleak
i'd start at the end of my street
if i could keep the snow away
i still couldn't make anyone stay

and i guess that's okay

i'm throwing all i care about away
i'm getting all that i deserve today
and you've got something coming if you think that i'm afraid to die alone

if i was a better man i'd be inside a man who isn't me
i built a boulder out of flesh
and so today i'm sisyphus at least until the evening hits and i'm too fucked to look at me

and you've got something coming
if you think that i'm afraid to drop this stone

i'm a swimming pool full of electric eels
i'm the millionth mosquito on your windshield
and the world will keep on turning as our children die and grow
and you've got something coming if you think that i'm afraid of driving home
Track Name: Flamingos
i've been writing melodies
with half of these piano keys
i need
someone else to play the chords
you used to do it but you're gone
oh lord

you headed south to florida as soon as the weather turned
post cards of plastic pink flamingos plastering your yard
well i don't need love and i don't need life i am gonna shut off everything that's outside
and that's alright i guess that is alright i guess

i've been thinking about the years
that slipped away with all our tears
and my fears
i've been thinking about the nights
we spent out with the fireflies above car tires

and i guess that i shut you out as much as you did me
but that doesn't mean what we're living is anymore easy
well i've got supplies for numbing my mind stepping into mys kull and shutting the blinds
and that's alright i guess

and i've been trying to find someone in a bulletproof vest because at least for tonight you won't feel my spikes in your chest

i've been trying to survive
when it gets cold outside, i don't know why.

i have been trying to hide,
from the corners of my mind that want me to die.

you headed south to florida as soon as the weather turned
post cards of plastic pink flamingos plastering your yard
well i don't need love and i don't need life i am gonna shut off everything that's outside
and that's alright i guess that is alright i guess

yes it's alright
long as you don't open the blinds
Track Name: OK
i don't wanna see the world for what it is when i wake up
just wanna lie in the grass with you underneath the summer sun
we'll pretend that the whole world's green as we lie in the park
i don't know where you are right now but i am afraid it is somewhere dark

when the cops come to kick us out we'll pack our shit up without a word
streelights all flicker on and our bare feet are caked with dirt
we'll keep conversation light as we wander our way home
because saying that you're okay is an easy way to say that you're alone
