lyrics

what to say, i'm just glad i stayed home
cause a day off's the way off this titanic mind
coffee grounds look something like burial mounds
they are heavy, black, steaming, and elephantine

but i'm weightless, pale, clammy, and impish today
i will float with the ghosts and scare people away,
with *unspeakable boilings and tearings apart*
i've drowned in mathematics now sleeping alone isn't art

friends float down rivers while laughing at government schemes
other friends' livers remember the days they were clean
things we put in our bodies, just where do they go?
you think you're such an expert then you oughta know

we are seadogs with pyrite to fill up those cracks in between
igniting the crevices reading some Life magazines:
from the fifties, or the sixties
all the junk i've consumed it resides in a jar
an archive of my mistakes ever preserved in the stars

fie could live one day over i've got one in mind
woulda done it correctly if i woke up on time
live one day over, i've got one in mind
would have done it correctly if i woke up on time

what to do? i'm just troubled by you
and the way you behave it's incredibly hard to explain
while/well i'm ill, i'm just bothered and thrilled
that someone would put up for so long
now i guess it's so long again

<><><><><>

there are things that we put in our bodies
we know what we're doing and we aren't sorry
honestly i don't know how to react
you think hurting yourself doesn't
hurt anybody else

there are things that we do that we don't even realize
sometimes
there are people we hurt, yet they stay at our sides
but only sometimes
there are signs that some people don't want me around
anymore
there are oceans of strangers and i think its time that i
went and drowned

if i could live one day over i've got one in mind
would have done it correctly if i woke up on time
live one day over i've got one in mind
woulda done it correctly if i woke up on time
live one day over got one in mind
woulda done it correct if i
your hand's flat your hand's freezing said the man in the mirror
count on the girl of your dreams til they shear her


(legs off) (yeah legs off)
