Track Name: last time you were alive
shut up my satan love is sickening
i know that it won’t bring me anything
i’d like to see you turn it off
when you’ve forgotten the last time
that you were alive

guess what i know you don’t wanna look at me
that’s why i force you to watch through the bleeding of angels
i’d like to see you turn it off
when you’ve forgotten the last time
that you were alive
Track Name: my pillow
three cousins boxed up tightly
look out below
the one's avoiding sleep and craving the glow
so low

solo magic majesty
this is not your tragedy

now that we are older
we all still know
so don't regret the harvest
regret the sow
so low

solo magic majesty
this is not your tragedy

lit up and lit my pillow
you can say you wanted everything you got
lit up and lit my head up
we will never ever speak of this again

when it is all around you
and it is so
so low

solo magic majesty
this is not your tragedy

lit up and lit my pillow
you can say you wanted everything you got
lit up and lit my head up
you can say you wanted everything you got
Track Name: our little town
it's present in every face i see
the conversations and even in the eyes
something big is bubbling underneath the surface
of our little town

i won't nail it to the wall
but this is an open ended call
to take me there and let down your hair
sing to me
i don't want to be alone

something big is bubbling underneath the surface
of our little town
Track Name: dead deer
your mom woke us up early
still dark outside
it felt like we had just fallen asleep

we dressed in silence
too tired to speak
made our way up the carpeted stairs

your mom made us breakfast
tried to pretend that it was just another day

i tried hard to remember what had gone down
but all i got were flashes

running by the barn
your brother coming home
trying and failing to take my shoes off
getting in the car
knowing you were lost
not knowing who was driving

the next thing i know it's the garden of eden
where are they taking us?
what did we do?

i saw a dead deer in the road on the way home
pick up the pieces of broken bone
i should have known
i should have known
Track Name: cursed, no -> blessed
so you said it was good enough
believe me when i've had enough
and someone had to be the one to bring it up
so here it is:

we are not cursed with an affliction
we are blessed with a beautiful addiction

be where you want to
do what you want to
do what you want to do

all the good people pack it up
move away where it's green enough
and someone had to be the one to bring it up
Track Name: i don't believe in crocodiles
all of the birds are gone as are the leaves
my friends can hibernate prematurely

i'll save up food
i will keep me warm
to hell with the sun
i've got things to do

there's never been this much room
i can finally breathe
you were boring me anyway
hope you sleep well

under ice
look closely
bet your money that my eyes and mouth are gonna be
open wide
full of pride
oh but nobody dies
