Track Name: Baby Below You
I've been living inside myself too long
I can't even tell my right from my left from my wrong
I don't even know which hand I"m counting on
I won't even count the fingers that I'm keeping crossed

There's no frequency I'd rather hear than you
shuttin' up after you've had one or ten or two
you've been drinking 'bout me, thinkin' up all your booze
you've been inking in the winking and you're PRETTY smooth

There's no reason that I'm wishing I get rich
There's no reason why I piss and whine and why I bitch
there's no meaning behind leaning out the window and letting go
of the baby below you

"There's no decency" you recently said to me
Decent of you to repeat the talk you think I need
I'm not listening 'til I've heard another word
that sounds more like you and less like you're getting insured

There's no reason that I'm wishing I get rich
There's no reason why I piss and whine and why I bitch
there's no meaning behind leaning out the window and letting go
of the baby below you

Forget families having panic self-portraits made
Don't forget the premature baby born too late
Throw him in the frame or throw him out of touch
Throw him down or throw him up like your wet lunch

There's no reason that I"m wishing I get rich
There's no reason why I piss and whine and why I bitch
There's no meaning behind leaning out the window and letting go
of the baby below you
Track Name: Date w/ Destini
Slow down your horrid soul. You're on a roll and it's so scary now it's beautiful
All the money in your bank, the gas that's in your tank won't take you anywhere you want to go. But I can't tell you anything you don't already know.
Like the water shapes the cliff
you wear me down to my bare bones, essential nutrients
Oh let's get out of here
Shotgun that last beer and roll on to a date with destini
I just hope she's got the bar stocked now
You're a waste of time
I'm a waste of wine
You're a waste of time
She's a waste of wine
Oh you're pretty without clothes
keep your mouth closed
cuz when you open it you ruin things
talk to me with your hands
say i'm a man
and make me scream, that's something you can do for me
it's easier than the truth (which is)
it hurts too much to care
so just be there
and smell like vanilla and lavender
I just can't give a fuck
i'm not even drunk
i'm just so TIRED OF THESE BURNED OUT DAYS
PUSHING DAISY
putting cigarettes
out in DESTINI's ASHTRAY
Shes a waste of time
I"m a waste of wine little darling
you're a waste of time
I'm a waste of wine
slow down yr horrid soul.
