Track Name: FREAK
no longer human i’ve been living off my own urine feasting on scraps of garbage making a scene no longer human i’ve been trapped in a plastic bubble under strict observation can’t even breathe

no longer human in this alien tenement i can’t survive within this cruel environment we coexist but it seems like an accident i’m not ok but it’s ok i can pretend

my mouth is catching flies bleeding slightly from the lower lip
this fire burns like fire the cycle cannot hold it comes again i’m outside my element
Track Name: WAIF
i just wanna steal you and keep you in my mind i might not need the real you so i'll just shield my eyes i know the languages we speak will never be the same the words lie far beyond my reach and i don't think i need to explain

i don't need to need you i might not have the time and you might not agree to keep yourself in line i know you taught yourself to teach me how to say your name i can't allow myself to sleep or even feel the need to explain

so just sit back and feel the processes begin and forget all those intimations then just let go and feel the sum of things unfold what a sight we are privileged to behold
Track Name: FLESH
i bare my teeth and try to smile i’ve been trying for quite a while
my facial muscles start to ache and i can’t wince the pain away a victim of this circumstance staring out the expanse wonders if there is a chance that you’re alone

i close my eyes and take a breath but i can’t sleep i think of death and how the two might be the same but hide behind some gentler name and if so flesh is just a word and in reverse it’s just absurd so start to speak if you haven’t heard that you’re alone

a time will come if it hasn’t already when all this youth will abandon my body and it won’t matter if i’m not ready a time will come if it hasn’t yet
Track Name: BLANKET
i can’t finish my own sentence fill in the blanks i’m out of breath you’re too young to have opinions but i’ll find peace beneath my blanket

i watch the smoke unfurl in spirals and light another cigarette you complete a perfect circle but i find peace beneath my blanket

you keep me in a moment you’re a lonely jealous god and you’re still breathing on it you’re a power hungry god you keep me in a moment you’re a stupid jealous god and you’re still coughing on it you’re a power hungry god

there’s no wisdom there’s no knowledge i’m only capable of death i can’t make out no distinction but i find peace beneath my blanket
Track Name: FORMING
i'm a liar and hypocrite i can't stomach anything i saw death for what it is exchange of papers and documents

i don't get it and i don't think i will i wanna be you

when we're not children we're hypocrites we used to dream now we're realists seem to question everything but i don't really give a shit

i'm having trouble forming let's do the dirty work i'll do the paper work let's make those papers work let's just make up the words
