Track Name: Your Fool
once I was a komodo dragon
once I was so cool
once I bit a man I was poison
they put me down in a pool
to die for

once I was a japanese tourist
I saw most all of japan
once in a while I end up crying
broken face in hand

I would love you like a brother
If brothers weren’t so cruel
I would fill my lungs with poison
just to be your fool
I’ve got furry claws
I’ve got scaly spine
and I’m praying you’ll
be my valentine
I am full of blood
Turning into wine
drink it up
so so so divine

once I went under the knife
I didn’t like my skin
once in a hallway half-forgotten you pushed me into sin
to die for

once I woke to motes of dust
slow sun on a summer day
once I fell from a great height
or did you push me away

I would love you like a brother
If brothers weren’t so cruel
I would fill my lungs with poison
just to be your fool
I’ve got furry claws
I’ve got scaly spine
and I’m praying you’ll
be my valentine
I am full of blood
Turning into wine
drink it up
so so so divine
Track Name: Capricorn
I was out late last night
buying cigarettes or some dumb thing
when you called my phone
but I didn't hear it ring
you were at my door
ready to apologize
but when i got home
you were already gone

you're my Capricorn
you're my evening storm
and I love you

when you got sick
you said I was your troubadour
when i got fired
you helped me to even the score
i'm not saying
that we've got a perfect thing
don't wanna buy you flowers
or a wedding ring

you're my soft and warm
you're my gold popcorn
and i love you

at some point i don't care what you did with him
at some point all my patience just wore thin
i know that you've grown to hate yourself
but i don't want to be with somebody else

you're my fucked up child
you're my sick and wild
and I love you
Track Name: Looming
what's looming to you
it terrifies me too
there's nothing we can do
but try

it won't go away
or hear the words you say
since it's here to stay
say hi

it's looming ahead
consuming you with dread
rest your weary head
on mine

it's coming on fast
looks awful like the past
when it comes at last
you'll find

the looming will end
one day with all your friends
at least we can pretend
for now
Track Name: The Beast
i'd taken a trip way out east
i was shaking hands with the beast
i'd fallen out of love with you

tomahawk ghost of your smile
i swore i would be with you for awhile
but i'd fallen out of love with you

our bodies kept holding each other
well after our souls let go
and darling when i took another
surprised satan didn't throw me in the hole
fiery black hole

i knew i shouldn't drink that awful wine
or go with her out into the night
but i'd fallen out of love with you

satan's got a thousand gleaming horns
that circle round me out here in the storm
since i've fallen out of love with you

our bodies kept holding each other
well after our souls let go
and darling when i took another
surprised satan didn't throw me in the hole
fiery black hole

i wanna be whole
i wanna be whole
wounded animal
of my soul
i wanna be whole
Track Name: Somewhat
I never wanted something so bad before
it must have been your perfume or the alcohol
but i went down, down, down
those stairs, stairs, stairs
said some stupid line
to prove i didn't care

then things went down like they always do
headed 85 on the highway home with you

i never knew if I could keep you
knew you loved him somewhat deeper
i'm sorry for that
if i took you away
from someone who could be your chance
at perfect love at true romance
i'm not good at that shit
just up for a fuck or two

i don't remember much about your family
i didn't listen close to what you said to me
but i went down, down, down
and i watched you float away
let a few things slip
that you didn't mean to say

when things went down like they always do
headed 85 on the highway home with you

i never knew if I could keep you
knew you loved him somewhat deeper
i'm sorry for that
if i took you away
from someone who could be your chance
at perfect love at true romance
i'm not good at that shit
just up for a fuck or two

and i'm somewhat sorry
if i somewhat fucked you over when
i somewhat punched right in the jaw
i'm good at self destruction
and i'm somewhat sorry
if i somewhat lied
when i somewhat held you close to my side
and said i was confused
when i knew just what i did

i'm somewhat tired and somewhat bored
i'm somewhat walking towards your door
i'm somewhat mean somewhat gone
somewhat piss drunk on your lawn

i'm somewhat somewhat somewhat not over you
i'm somewhat somewhat somewhat not over you
i'm somewhat somewhat somewhat not over you
