Track Name: Magnolia
Slow walk through the riverbed
Magnolia lookin' dead

Slow walk down the riverbed
Magnolia lookin' dead
Bottle up a little blow
Suck it up and watch it go
And watch it go and watch it go away

Slow walk in the dead of night
Discount fuck if you'd like
Fair warning, there's a missing piece
That works, it's fine by me
We'll take the trees
Track Name: Skeleton Song
Skeletons with breaking bones
Hold me together at the joints
Walk me until we find the code
To break it along this broken road

I want you to know as I'm all bone
The pieces will fall until I shut my mouth

Skeletons with breaking bones
Hold me together at the joints
Walk me until we find the code
To break it along this broken road

Skeletons with breaking bones
Hold me together at the joints
Walk me until we find the code
To break it along this broken road

I want you to know as I'm all bone
The pieces will fall until I shut my mouth
Track Name: The End.
Baptized in Christ'll save you from your demise
Perfect and pretty, honey, you're compromised
Helen is burning, baby, dying for love
No fraternizing with a bullet and a gun

Stepping toward the middle
You're gonna burn
You're gonna burn
You're gonna cook in the core
Fixed on solved riddles you'll never learn
You'll never learn
You'll never learn

Hungry for more to get you bigger than now
Must have the money as you're crawling back out
Swim through the river, honey, endless and deep
With ghosts from your past you thought you'd never meet again

Stepping toward the middle
You're gonna burn
You're gonna burn
You're gonna cook in the core
Fixed on solved riddles you'll never learn
You'll never learn
You'll never learn

Trapped in a tomb, licked by flames
Bodies of sodom and shame
Here come the Hellhounds again
Bodies of sexualized men

You know the secrets to why you have come
Here to the end past the deaf and the dumb
Track Name: Look At Me!
If someone told me two years back
That I'd be the one who'd gone off track
I think I'd have had a little laugh
But look at me now

Look at me now
Look at me now
Look at me now
Look at me now
Track Name: Written Off the Show
You know how there's always that one character
On the show that you watch
As you're curled up in bed
And they die at the end of the last episode
Because they have come to the end of their road
And the makers don't want them around anymore
So they give them a story that's doomed from the start
And you watch as this person you've grown up to love
Has no clue what they're in for
The last thing they say is, "I love you"
To someone they've always had hate for
To tug at your heartstrings and bring in the paper
That's me
Where I'm at on my road
Gone off track
Months behind on the rent
It's my time to be written off of the show
But please let me go away for a stay on an island
I don't know
Just don't kill me off
There's a story for me in seasons to come
Just don't kill me off
Don't kill me off
Just don't kill me off
Don't kill me off
Don't kill me off
Just don't kill me off
Don't kill me off
Don't kill me off
Track Name: This Year Is Going to Be Different
This year is gonna be different
I have you and you're all that I need
And I might want one little present
I want forever, it's all that I need

And I might want one little present
I want forever, it's all that I need

This year is gonna be different
Me and you and that's all that we need
Track Name: Meant For Skeletons
I came home to a letter with my name
Emptied out and fell into the ground
Knew I might not ever see your face
Punched the walls and screamed in all my pain

I was a journey far away
One more night to hold you in my arms
Didn't get what I wanted and I here
And the bed, we shared alone my pain

Come home, come home, come home
Come home, come home
Come home, come home, come home
Come home, come home

We were meant for skeletons
All entwined, our ribs, our blood and jaws
Love is cruel and left our bone on rocks
Picked away by time until we rot
Track Name: Ode to Morrison Park
It's the last time I'll walk up these awful red stairs
To a prison that's concrete and bare
It's the last time I'll hold a magnet to the door
And hear the locks that tell me I'm there

But I'll miss coming home to your arms
And the smoking and fashion and weed
Won't be locked in 2013
And I'll miss what we had here

I'll remember that potato and turkey dinner
That I thought was so sweet and just right
And the way that we laughed at that bitch down the hall
When she couldn't get anything right

But I'll miss every bit of your charm
And the wine bottle blowin' up
And your alarms

But darlin', I swear
If one memory I'll hold
It's we made out fine
And some great fucks were had here
Track Name: Bethesda
Be sure you say, "Hey," to Bethesda
Be sure you stay safe in the streets
Don't forget about me over here by the sea
Be sure you stay warm without me

You've gotta stop springing things on me
I am only so strong without you here with me

I will try to save for adventure
I will try to stay strong for you
Won't forget about you over there by the sea
I'll try hard to stay warm without you

You've gotta stop springing things on me
I am only so strong without you here with me
Track Name: Not 4 Sale
So you can leave me on the corner where you found me
I'm not for sale anymore
You can leave me on the corner where you found me
I'm not for sale anymore
You can leave me on the corner where you found me
I'm not for sale anymore
You can leave me on the corner where you found me
I'm not for sale anymore
Track Name: Came In Too Soon
You ask me why I'm sad
You ask why I'm so bitter
You ask me why I have naught but black
All through my pictures

But I was born under a new moon months too soon
I was scared I'm sure
Born in the dark, in the cold

Tell me, are you scared to die?
Oh, why would I?
Tell me where it all went wrong
You're asking the wrong one
How would I know?
I came in too soon
Track Name: Cold and Dry
You left without a word, dad
You left her cold and dry, dad

And now I can't love you no more
And now I don't fear you no more
And now when you're at my front door
I'll leave you cold and dry

Your fist is out of line, dad
You've always been bigger than I am

You left without a word, dad
You left her cold and dry, dad

And now I can't love you no more
And now I don't fear you no more
And now when you're at my front door
I'll leave you cold and dry

Can't love you no more
Don't fear you no more
When you're at my front door
I'll leave you cold and dry
Track Name: RUN!!
On the road, baby
Skeletons and skin
It's a dark night with a warm wind
There's a hunchback, honey
Grab the gun and run
Kill the new ones and we'll coat our lungs

On the run, darlin'
Feel your hand tense now
They will trace the smell and track us down
There's a wind, honey
Find the tall one
Hide behind before we make our run

Run! Run!

On the road, baby
Skeletons and skin
It's a dark night with a warm wind

RUN!! RUN!!
Track Name: The Lost Cowboy (w/ Patrick Donnell)
I'm the rebel of the group, so I can smoke out here

Why don't you go up?
Oh, I like that, it's very disjointed
I like it, Jared
Track Name: Come Home
Oh daddy, buy me a man
I've been bad, bad, so bad
Don't fly the milky way
We already outer space

It's an early spring again
My leaves are wilted and dead
You rake 'em cross the grave
My name is written

You pray, "I'm here, baby
You know I had fun with you though
Now I'm travelin' alone
I'm here, baby, come home."

Oh daddy, buy me a man
I've been bad, bad, so bad
