Track Name: Day By Day
Are you ill?
Were you killed by the wrong walking way?
Do you try to make up lies
or do you even have to?
When we were done there were many songs you sung
you made it seem ok

And I got wasted on a boat with people I don't know

Every night there's a fight with the people living next door
They ramble on until they've gone to buy some lube at the store
they don't even know who they are anymore
they take it day by day

And I am just a little girl who was brought into this world

are you filled?
do you will to go squatting in a house in Cambridge?
Tell me why should i try
when all it does is make her crazy

day by day by day
Track Name: I Should Really Stop Smoking Weed
I should really stop smoking weed
I should really stop smoking it before I lose my mind
I should really stop smoking weed
I should really stop smoking it before I lose my mind

this reefer's got me feeling too much like an adult
and it's all my fault

I should really stop smoking weed
I should really stop smoking it before I lose my mind
I should really stop smoking that reefer
I should really stop smoking it before I lose my mind

this ganja's got me feeling too much like an adult
and it's all my fault
you're stuck here again
Track Name: The Spine Of This
I walk tunnels in the spine of this
I made friends with the fish in the glowing fizz
where the women will rock your socks off, yeah
in the city where nothing is popped off yet

I know that we're the coal of an underwater ship
cruising through the reefs of fevers and trips
I would like to give a toast to the feeling du jour
the night air is heavy and our hearts are warm
where the women will rock your socks off, yeah
beer napkins in the shape of a garland, yeah

you mean nothing to them
but to me you are a gem
you thought money would work
you are my material possession

here the women will rock your socks off, yeah
in the city that went for a swim, yeah
here the women will rock your socks off, yeah
in the city that lived without him, yeah...
Track Name: The Wallet Blues
I left the bar I was so drunk
I couldn't feel my feet I was so drunk
I put my hand on my pocket oh fuck
I left my wallet there
I left my wallet in the bar

On the streets of Italy I was so drunk
Some kid bumped into me I was so drunk
I put my hand on my pocket oh fuck
i got pick-pocketed
I got pick-pocketed by a kid
no no no no no no no no no no no no no no no no

I met a girl in a bar I was so drunk
I took her back to my place I was so drunk
The next morning emptied pockets oh fuck
she took my wallet
Track Name: Apples In Shackles
I wait for you to come home. I wait.
I wait for it to undrone. I wait.

and
I am the coolest one here.

for all the people who are out of place
I'm gonna send to outer space
and
this is what you get when you lie to me
and
I'm gonna send you to a desert isl
and

I found a place where I can roam. It's my home.
and
I wait for it to undrone. In my zone.

and
I lost my leg in the war.

Apples in shackles didn't mean to start a crackle
with the oranges and cantaloupes pretending to be philanthropes
trying not to be trapped in between
tipped over cattle don't need to pay the toll
and
I'm a proud parent of a student on the honor roll
trying not to be trapped in between
with everyone. Everyone and everything.

I'm at your doorstep. Bearing a gift.

I wait for you to come home. I wait.
I wait for you to come home. I wait.
Track Name: You Burned Your Hand On A Stove
I'm sorry sir we've made a mistake
we didn't mean to overcook your steak
we'll fuck it up if we try to cook it again
so please take this gun and shoot my head

you burned your hand on a stove
Track Name: Brand New State Of Mind
And I never expected you to make a change
That pigeon-toed boy said the penguins never parade
you boring little maniac
I guess it's time to explain
who, will explain it all to you

And I never expected you to be so kind
you woke up alive with a brand new state of mind
but now the mothership's melting
i guess it's time to explain
who, will explain it all to you

And I, I never said it's never gonna be
but this is, this is the end there's nothing left to see (in this crime scene)
and I, I always say it really just depends
you woke up thinking that you're better
but you're nothing in the end
