Track Name: Naked // Quarantine
I've been trying
smiling
at everyone when I walk by
It never looks right

I've been practicing
smiling
in the bathroom mirror all the time
It never looks right

The only reason I'm lifting these weights
is so i can look better naked
the only reason I'm practicing smiling
is so I can look genuine
I never seem genuine
I always seem fake
I can never show my love or my happiness inside
happiness inside

I think it's pretty weird
when guys call their girl baby
and she responds by calling him daddy
that's a little incestuous
who do you think you are?
Pope Alexander (specifically the 6th) or a fan of Nascar?

Goddamn the society
Sell your soul for followers or a ten dollar coffee
Goddamn the government is watching me
I've ripped apart my whole house, I know they bugged me
Goddamn the Quarantine
I've isolated myself, please leave me be

I've been trying
smiling
at everyone when I walk by
It never looks right.
Track Name: The Missing Link
Remember the day we were swimming in the ocean? I pulled out my foot you said it smelled like shrimp so I gnawed on my foot all the way to the bone, they gave me a look you made me feel alone. 'Twas still a good foot despite the smell of crustacean, don't knock it till you try it don't make me feel alienated.

Yeah man I agree
You've been dealt a pretty shitty hand
but that's no excuse not what a friend would do
at least I know you're not a man
you're an amphibian, a Tiktaalik, the missing link between a friend and an enemy, a business and a band, a three headed dog with a yard stick in her crusty onion scented hand.

Remember the day we were shot into space? you tried to take your helmet off but I glued it to your neck oh you tried and you tried, and I was surprised, for the friend I know would not give up that easily.

But you're not the friend I know anymore (4X)

Yeah man I agree
You've been dealt a pretty shitty hand
but that's no excuse not what a friend would do
at least I know you're not a man
you're an amphibian, a Tiktaalik, the missing link between a friend and an enemy, a business and a band, a three headed dog with a yard stick in her filthy salty onion scented hand.
Track Name: Dear Sister...
Dear Sister
Mom and Dad have been fighting more
I think it's because they've gotten old

Dear Sister
I've made a few new friends
None of them you'd be proud of
Dear Sister

Have the winds stolen your home?
God will protect you
If not, I know you are a fighter
You can fight it off

Dear Sister
This cold has sunk to my bones
It's hard to start again
Dear Sister

Dear Sister
What is it you're scared of?
I'm scared to be alone
I'm scared to get too cold
I'm scared I'll die alone
