BALLOONS

You're all balloons
And you keep us afloat
You're all confidence
And you keep us alive

You have no insides
Cause your guts are in your mouth
You have superdrive
Cause your balls are in your mouth

Please don't leave us to our doubt
Please don't let the bottom fall out

MONSTERS

They say you were born into the cave of the monsters
And all the monsters keep you in
They do whatever they please with you
And say it's for you not for them

Tiptoe around the monsters
Tuck your tail between your legs
Tiptoe around the monsters
It's best not to wake them

And the monsters are always angry
Always hungry

They say the best you can do for the monsters
Is to become one of them
To grow and repress your own little monsters
The more they touch you the more you become one of them

Tiptoe around the monsters
Tuck your tale between your legs
Tiptoe around the monsters
It's best not to mention it
All I said was I don't want to be a monster
And they said
Don't worry
The monsters are here for you

DOOM

We set out
With hope beneath our skin
The air was palpable
With what could have been

Soon as we arrived
No work left
Try back next year
When winter's passed

How will we last?

CHAMPION

I can't win you with words
I can't win you with what I am
So I'll try once again
To become someone else

A millionaire
Baudelaire
Fucking Rimbaud beneath a shady moneytree
Jerry Rubin or Abby Hoffman

Choose your champion
And I'll start cutting up my body
To fit the armor

HOME

I don't need no one to sing my song after I'm gone
Don't need to believe I'll be around after I'm gone
I don't need no supper I'm quite content to gnaw on bones
Don't need the empty veins to fill with blood no more

I just need to get home
Can you find me home
Can you drive me home
Carry me back home

Wandered drunk in fog so long forget that you had gone
Walked around from room to room and found the walls had gone
Stomped up and down so hard I fell right through the floor
Looked up for the roof and saw nothing but stars above

So where is my home
Can you find me home
I just want to go home
Carry me back home

PHANTOM LIMBS

If we could agree
To stop believing
Maybe we could come
To stop the grieving
Maybe we could agree
To stop believing

In my phantom limbs
You say you see em but I don't feel em
Missing dendrites
Axon decay
Neurons severed right at the root

If you could see
Deep inside of me
You'd realize there's nothing
Behind this expression
Expression of apathy
Expression of antipathy
