Track Name: Honey Eye Bee Leave Ewe
ZIZZZZZ

oh honey eye bee leave ewe, that you'll bring me candy,
then we can go dancing, honey if ewe bee leave in me.

ZIZZZZZ

my blue lines are glittering, they're sprinkled with candy,
i have your memories, they're sliding, we're sliding

and i melt to you
i melt one two...

ZIZZZZZ

oh honey eye bee leave ewe, that you'll bring me candy,
then we can go dancing, honey if ewe bee leave in me.
Track Name: GLU
Stampeding through the city streets
Those were our families he did eat
We played we powers we didn't understand
Now this destruction's on our head

I ebb and flow out by the moon
Feel the vibrations that signal doom
I spit and churl myself across the land
I'm frothing seething with the power
Feed me ships watch as I devour
An immortal power that is beyond man

He lives in me
Track Name: Yesterday's Parties
Diamonds and little talk, the finest wines arrive by maid
and down to the bottom of the bottle they go.
Come on now, let's have a laugh, and some trio and minuet.
This is a night of satisfaction

The promise of satin sheets. Her blood is spilled all over.
He wipes his blade, and sings her off to sleep.

Singin' "Ba Ba Ba Ba Da Ba Ba Ba Ba"

The tables are lined with cushioned seats.
Mind your manners, Lady Jane.
Some will call, but others wait.
Now it's the last call for the night,
a gentleman's smile catches her eye.
He takes her hand and leads the dance.

The promise of satin sheets. Her blood is spilled all over.
He wipes his blade, and sings her off to sleep.

Singin' "Ba Ba Ba Ba Da Ba Ba Ba Ba"

Here now, let's have a toast!
But the governor's glasses are covered in smoke-
He's too busy thinking about yesterday...

Singin' "Ba Ba Ba Ba Da Ba Ba Ba Ba"
Track Name: The New E
She met me on the corner, where I put up my guard
She's saying life's not easy, well that's true man, it's hard

With feet first into the clouds, and head first into the ground
Alright
Well alright

Yeah

We were out late walking, she's talking to a friend
So I was out there dreaming, ignoring what she said

My head first into the ground, my feet first into the crowd
Alright
No that's not right

No

Standing under a lamppost, she's staring at the wall
This girl man, she was mental, she started to ball

She started to ball x3

My head first into the clouds, my feet take me around town at night
Well this night, night, night

Yeehaw!
Track Name: Telepathic Boys
Oh you boy telepathy, I saw your electricity. And your sins, they're still in the water, see them steaming.

Oh you flaunted being, why are you in my dreams? Your air is so cold and I'm vomiting.

Swimming all through the water.

The man with the fire is coming to tell you all about his stories hiding in his belly.

I had a father, would you need to know his name? And years ago I thought it was interesting how telepathic boys are made.
Track Name: High Quality Knickerbockers
I try to combat these terrors when little hands are forced to weave and sew. So I try and I buy, I try and I buy, I try and I buy these secondhand clothes.

I know progress is slow, when little hands from foreign lands
Are forced to go weave and sew, so I try and I buy
When I can, secondhand, when I can, secondhand
So I try and I buy, when I can, secondhand.

Rips and tears against and Empire of Threads, built on hungry desperate ones in forgein lands. So I try and I buy, I try and I buy, I try and I buy these secondhand clothes.

I know progress is slow, when little hands from foreign lands
Are forced to go weave and sew, so I try and I buy
When I can, secondhand, when I can, secondhand
So I try and I buy, when I can, secondhand

Excess. I don't need more. Make it hurt. Make it hurt.
