Wax 03:01
Put on another record to bury all this hurt When it makes me sadder, we can play it in reverse The needle hits the vinyl and it shakes between each groove I lay still on this mattress, but my spirit starts to move I have never been here before I have no idea what I want anymore So shake me like I'm dying 'til I produce a sound It may not be much longer 'til I'm not around The sound I make is heavy, it'll shake you to your bone She said she wants to spend more time, but I'd rather be alone I have never been here before I have no idea what I want anymore

Hospitality 02:58
Lifeless body staring at a blank wall There's a party outside of my bedroom door They can't come in. No one is welcome She keeps asking if she can spend the night It's not working, and I cant put up a fight She can't come in No one is welcome I would rather sleep than have you talk to me I keep having dreams that don't mean anything I've been drinking. The room's starting to shake I'm persistent in causing my own self shame Please just come in No one is welcome I would rather sleep than have you talk to me I keep having dreams that don't mean anything

Find you a girl Graduate college Get you a job Throw your life away Buy you a house That you'll never live in You're never around No one wants you here If I could undo all the damage that my brothers did to me I'd find truth in all of their falsehoods and cast them to the sea I think that if I had worked hard enough, I'd finally be free But I think that I'll just sit here complacently. Goodbye to your wife Goodbye to your family Hello to a world that's tearing you limb from limb If I could undo all the damage that my brothers did to me I'd find truth in all of their falsehoods and cast them to the sea I think that if I had worked hard enough, I'd finally be free But I think that I'll just sit here complacently.

There was this letter I wrote to my father I think maybe I got too brave I said I'd consider his plans for my future But never be currency's slave I'm counting up failures I'm surprised I'm still breathing Failure's familiar, and she's always been with me What's one more mistake for the week? I've got all that I need, right here in front of me Cigarettes and self-pity to pair with my coffee In hopes that I don't go to sleep There's this dream I keep having where my Jesus, he's sleeping And he don't give a shit about me I've got all that I need, right here in front of me My friends and family are all that I need I've got all that I need
