Track Name: Alleviation
why can't you stop this vicious circle
i've tried to reach out
i need you to help me
help you figure it out
maybe you just need something
to get out of your way
“i was just so young”
doesn't mean a thing

but like a senseless poem
with empty verses,
like perfect cursive
my words are worthless
still it went
she spent that night
with thin red thread
around her thighs

and out of her ankles
grow little roses
forming rows
though no one knows it
those little flowers
like distant stars
though very small,
are very large
i’m covered in bruises
you’re covered in scars
Track Name: Demolition
it will be a year now
of standing in the front room
looking out onto the street
and watching the buildings fall

nothing changes
if i were awake i could stop everything
nothing changes
if i were awake i could stop everything
Track Name: Second Year
i can't live with your shit!
i can't breathe with your stench!
i will break through the walls!
i will burn this house down!

the plaster's cracked
dead mice in the hall
i should have known
you'd be neutral

so i'll spend my days
awake on the porch
because now with her
this house is cursed
Track Name: Bad Luck
i wake up bruised with my jaw clenched, my nails torn into shreds
i wipe the steam off from the walls, back way from the front door
it's not as if it's safe out there, with cats crying and cat-calling
walking down the darkened streets, such bad luck could kill me

my safety shouldn't have to be my personal choice!
i shouldn't have to buy a knife if i wanna walk alone!
Track Name: Erie, Pennsylvania
i feel the heat; it's closing in
i sense the smell of sugar beets
these are things i can't forget
nights burned right into my skin

i would leave, if i had another place to be
like those days we spent at mosquito lake
Track Name: Seen
you said i should just be thankful that some dude thought i was sexy
but i didn't wear this shirt so you could tell me that'd you fuck me

as if that's the point in my presence at this show
as if that's the reason why i'm screaming fuck hardcore

i will never i will never i will never just be quiet
i will never i will never i will nevers just be quiet

i do not exist for you
Track Name: Take My Teeth
take my teeth, then i'll sleep
Track Name: Medicine
i'll throw up my guts, i'd peel off my skin
i'll drink my own blood, i'll sleep in the din
i'd open my stomach, and pull out the bile
i'd unhinge my jaw, to rest for a while

i'll throw up my guts, i'd peel off my skin
i'll drink my own blood, i'll sleep in the din
i've told all the men, i've had to go see
but none of them listen, or make sense of me

i've made so many phone calls
pleaded on my hands and knees
i don't know what else i have to do
to get you to take me seriously

do i have to bleed myself out
at two am in emergency
i've screamed my throat completely raw
i've been as frank as i can be so

i'll throw up my guts
i'd peel off my skin
i'll drink my own blood
i'll sleep in the din
Track Name: Chalk River
when we stopped we killed the engine, we shook
dust from our hair tossed our bones from the car.
when we got out we threw stones at the church
broke the windows, knew that we could sleep there.

from the pulpit we could see the half-light
that thick glow from the reactor, blooming.
yeah we knew that we were dead and gone then
hands together in chalk river, buried.

the pressure built around us as the storm came
you were glowing in the gray
the tremor made the highway crack and break
you held my hair, i dug our graves

all our lives we both imagined we’d live
by the lakeside with the sharp rocks plunging
into dark and undisturbed black water,
growing old and picking sage in springtime.
Track Name: Mercy
ornaments on trees
fall to the floor
the branches and the leaves
i don’t know any more

twist my arm
behind my back
i cry out for mercy

i couldn’t tell you a fucking thing
i couldn’t tell you their fucking names
and every single fucking year
its the same fucking thing
Track Name: Malignancy
i stand up, look behind me
i see red, i get scared
i know that my family has a history
i've heard the stories of how he was living in misery
and i don't want to be him
living out of bags
Track Name: Genesis and Sleep
all of the uncertainty
and crushing anxiety
it comes down on me
it comes down on me
