Track Name: Thank You
Jeffy boy, you're okay with me
I heard you finally started that cult.
When I saw the little blue dresses that you make em wear
I'm all alone when I say that's quaint?
Truth be told, when you put aside the little girls and the exiles
A prime number of virgins ain't bad
Bring me some holy kool-aid
I want more, yes I want more

And when they lose their teeth,
They'll be sure to thank you, to thank you
They pile em all up at your feet
No surprise when they shank you, they shank you

Chase me down, shake me down
Did you know I could read your lips
Catch her good, your children never fall ill. they are prettier
And all she has to do is sign
Truth be told, when you put away the razorblades and the codeine
You'll feel about as big as big gets
So bring me some holy kool-aid
Cause I want more, yes I want more

And when they lose their teeth,
They'll be sure to thank you, to thank you
They pile em all up at your feet
No surprise when they shank you, they shank you

We'll have our fights and break a pact to get along, on the next mile
Never apologize for nothing wrong
So bring me some holy kool-aid
Cause I want more, yes I want more

And when they lose their teeth,
They'll be sure to thank you, to thank you
They pile em all up at your feet
No surprise when they shank you, they shank you
Track Name: This Disgusting Beast
Fuck this beast I've had enough
Always yakkin on my stuff
Hiss and scratch you're not so tough
And all the while what do you do for me

Stop knocking shit off my shelf
Why don't you go fuck yourself
It's actually possible
Tell me know what do you do for me

Cause I swear I don't know what
One day I don't know when, til then
I guess we gotta be friends

I myself would just neglect her
But then I'd get a fuckin lecture
And need to clean up the body anyway
Tell me now what does that do for me

Spending all my goddamn money
Laugh inside you think it's funny
Hair forever in my food
Tell me now what do you for me

Crawling up into my lap
Trying to pull that cutesy crap
Sometimes I oblige politely
But tell me now what do you do for me

Cause I swear I don't know what
One day I don't know when, til then
I guess we gotta be friends
Track Name: Lord Knows 72
I stood alone and I knocked on your door
I tried, Lord knows I tried
We're so alike, until he fell off his bike
I tried, Lord knows I tried
All these phantom fellas, they make me so jealous
I tried, Lord knows I...

You kiss my cheek, make me feel weak
I tried, Lord knows I tried
I won some bread, but it's still so cold in my bed
I tried, Lord knows I tried
Big brother beware, never did learn to share
I tried, Lord knows I...

Call me when your voice runs out
I wish you would
I wanna fall in love again
Follow me I'm wild and hoarse now
I wish you would
I wanna fall in love again
I wanna fall in love again

I always prayed just before raids
I tried, Lord knows I tried
I got no wife, I just got my knife
I tried, Lord knows I tried
One or a million, it's easier stealin
I tried, Lord knows I...

Call me when your voice runs out
I wish you would
I wanna fall in love again
Follow me I'm wild and hoarse now
I wish you would
I wanna fall in love again
I wanna fall in love again
Track Name: Go Down (10,000 Days)
How many days have I wasted, have I wasted
Can’t read my own hand, my own hand
In all my ten thousand days
I never knew I was waitin, I was waitin
My knees are in the sand, in the sand
In all my ten thousand days

It leads me to water

Trouble my soul, trouble my soul
Children going home, going home
Free heaven chariot
River wheel gone, yes it’s gone
Rise, heaven, fall, mother fall
Morning land king

How many days have I wasted, have I wasted
Can’t read my own hand, my own hand
In all my ten thousand days
I never knew I was waitin, I was waitin
My knees are in the sand, in the sand
In all my ten thousand days

Go down (Come on down, come on down)
Go way down (Come lay down, come lay down)
Go down (come on down, come on down)
Come way down (Come lay down)
Track Name: All My Loves Have Gone Away
All my loves have gone away...

My loves have come and gone
Like flowers under stone
And all that blood leaving my arm
Like a river made of stars
I stole a crown, they called me king!
Made my gold, never weeped

But all my loves have gone away...

All my life I been trying to fly
With those birds up in the sky
But first I learned to break my fall
Scarred my heart, that was all
It's better to be a beggar king
Then you weigh not a thing
I'll climb a tree, I'll climb a tree!
I will soar on foolish wings

But all my loves have gone away...
Track Name: How to Pray
You're about to be a dead man
Expect you'll want yourself a cigarette
Take your place here at the altar
Get down on your knees and pray

She is here to read your last rites
Empty out your holy fire
So let this priestess give her sermon
You know the words to say

You will be quite exhausted
Too much life can have it's losses
Get it all back in the next life
Bare feet at the bush will burn

How to live this one life over
Silent song of your electrons
Push negation makes you sober
You eat the peach you learn

You're about to be a dead man
Expect you'll want yourself a cigarette
So take your place here at the altar
Get down on your knees and pray

Let your raiment fall to circles
Mix together til you ferment
Then you'll know that you have earned it
Get down on your knees
Get down on your knees
Get down on your knees and pray
Track Name: So Easy
A million years ago, when we were dinosaurs
We had sharp teeth and claws
We chased our prey, it made us feel better now
But I never did learn Morse code, Hi tech has gotten old
But the waters bore me up even though I was corrupt
Tell me who deserves your love.

If I could just tell the truth, it would be
So easy now, so easy now
If I thought it would help you, it would be
So easy now, so easy now

And all you people on the shore, calling for my blood
Mirror mirror, face to face,
It's you and me, underground now reborn
But I never did learn your code, we're carrying the same load
If you be my friend I'll be different in the end
And I mended all my wounds and I swear I won't pretend

If I could just tell the truth, it would be
So easy now, so easy now
If I thought it would help you, it would be
So easy now, so easy now
Tell me where to keep my eyes, she said
Go easy now, go easy now
Confession is absolution, it's
So easy, so easy

If I could just tell the truth...
If I thought it would help you...

If I could just tell the truth, it would be
So easy now, so easy now
If I thought it would help you, it would be
So easy now, so easy now
Tell me where to keep my eyes, she said
Go easy now, go easy now
Confession is absolution, it's
So easy, so easy

Don't forget to eat
Don't forget to sleep
This isn't what you wanna hear
But make sure you talk, make sure you walk, yeah?
