Track Name: Interviewer
Sinewy vines of smoke
And your tender heart left alone
I'll breathe in your soul without coughing
Aw you poor broken thing
You're splintered and opening
The swell of neurosis rings and softens

You're still the same sweetheart, no?
With the slightest bit fainter glow
Let me just loosen your hold for a second
How do you take your medicine?
Two-tone pill or blue coat gin?
A warm drug and a warm lift beckon


Look behind
The exit sign hangs right above the door
Mesmerized by colored light
Your feet stick to the floor

The busts of your ancestors
Stare back from their shelves unheard
All of their buried pearls with the rotten
Hello oblivion
So nice and welcoming
Carry my numbing limbs
Don't drop them

Look behind
The exit sign hangs right above the door
Mesmerized by colored light
Your feet stick to the floor
Track Name: Is It Midnight?
Did you bite your tongue? Come here, girl, now let me see
Darling, what colors was your gradient love? Your strawberry blood.
Rolls over your lips and it lines your neck
Oh Darling, it’s fine your dress is black
I’m not turned on unless you’re weird
ok maybe a kiss

Is it midnight?
One fifty five.
One fifty five.
That’s too tight.

I’ll buy you a pretzel if you’re good
Will you behave? Alright, yes, ok.
You wipe off the salt, but no, no, not all of it
We’re lost, but it’s fine
We’ll get shot in the night
Oh ok right, I wasn’t planning to survive
Track Name: Warm Drug
Oh misguided darling
Lonesome-minded sweetheart
what you said you wanted you got
Misanthropic baby
My secret little dead star
While you were shoegazing distraught

What if happiness was just a warm drug away?
Does it really matter if it's from the cave or the pharmacy?
No one really knows anything anyway
We fix and fix and fix and fixate

Your river flows molasses
Right there in the rapids
Slows to pearling saplets unmoved
It's gone before it happens
Inspired yet collapsing
Left there stunned and grasping for youth

What if happiness was just a warm drug away
Does it really matter if it's from the cave or the pharmacy
No one really knows anything anyway
We fix and fix and fix and fixate
Track Name: Harold Greengard
Look off the viewfind
His brylcreem and knit tie
His collar is just right
Starchy new york white

My mother would hate him he looks like my father
the rocking chair charmer
I told him it’s whiskey, but really it’s water
Harold Greengard

Switch off the porch light
The cabin and young pines
The camera does not lie
He listens alone blithe
Framed out the moonshine
Behind his teeth burns rye
The wicked and vile
And silent, blind forest fire

My mother would hate him he looks like my father
the rocking chair charmer
I told him it’s whiskey, but really it’s water
Harold Greengard
Track Name: Mannequin
Settle down and paint your face
You gave your heart and I say aw it’s such a shame

I feel it rotting away
It's not all in my head

As we get older
I am trying not to stay
On our shoulders
We've held all your fucking weight

Don't you see our burdened lids
Our voluntary anesthesia goodnight kiss

The quiet prone hum
Got lost among the wail
Your silence
Makes you a fucking mannequin

I feel it rotting away
I got lost among them
