  • 02:45 Lyrics Quos Deus Vult Perdere Prius Dementat

     

    • When you left my empty room
    • Obliged all the night, I was construct to soon
    • And my stories told are not as great as yours?
    • And for that I’m banished by your man above?
    • And I’ll take your name and I’ll speak your words
    • I’d sell my soul just to be in yours
    • What’s a man to do? So what’s a man to do?
    • And when you left my second room
    • Staged on a bed, fell asleep around noon
    • And now there’s scratching on the door, 
    • that peals from these walls
    • I’m just passing the time till they do fall 
    • And I’ll give them gold just to sell you away
    • And I’ll print in bold not to return again
    • What’s a man to do? So what’s a man to do?
  • 02:02 Lyrics Love-Lettered Minnesota
    • Dear Minnesota,
      I've eloped here with my recital memory.
      Fucking in and outside cars and parliaments.
      Not awaiting a poetic splendor not trashy sentiment.
      Cannot say there is a need of you.
      Maybe I believe your Jesus is a communist.
      And maybe I believe you love in a tidal wave here created for the awe of deconstruction.
      I've sidetracked, of coarse.
      Forgot this was for you.
      Take, if you will, my love letters of seedy and spiritual ease.
      Orphaned, I dig up every mustard seed with no need of being proved otherwise.
      I don't want your government but I'm so in love with your government.
      For nothing is as perfect as a question with little or no value or answer.
  • 01:55 Lyrics True La La
    • I'd say you're all I imagined, and you'd say no we're much more  
    • We'd talk until were stupid, and we'd fuck like nuclear war  
    • We'd say we stay forever, and by that we meant till death  
    • It's funny and peculiar how those words seem to surpass  
    • Suddenly we're addicts, violent for a greater high  
    • And sadly, my love, we all hate good-byes 
    • I'd swear you were my savior, and you'd swear I was your own  
    • Like spinning all great epics into one super unknown  
    • As if we were a sovereignty that no one quite could grasp  
    • It's funny and it's lame how utopias just break like glass  
    • Redundantly the Woes smoke twenty-thousand cigarettes 
    • And sadly, my love, "godsends" never last
  • 03:31 Lyrics From the Get-Go and Into the Ghetto
    • Fell into the no inhibitions  
    • My gut-wrenched heart damned me this mission
    • And I would stay Yeah, I would stay and I would stay with you always  
    • And now I hate Yes, now I hate that I now say  
    • Our love would then fade away 
    • Our love surely turn cliche  
    • Our love would not rejuvenate  
    • And our love would then be our hate  
    • Still I taint all this emotion  
    • Still recreate to find the notion  
    • And now I cry And now I cry And now I cry for what could have been  
    • But I'll make it die, I'll make it die to live the lie that...  
    • Our love would just tear away  
    • Our love would disconsolate  
    • Our love would tell us what a waste  
    • Our love vastly disintegrates 
    • Oh, and you'll be my world Oh, till the end unfurls
  • 01:42 Lyrics At the Pulpit (I Raise My Hands)
    • Yeah I wait though violent, I do say  
    • Entirely I'm not the man I used to be  
    • And I curse this ground that I'm walking on  
    • And I curse this town that feeds me dawn  
    • Yeah I decay, as I delay  
    • And let you fuck inside of me 
    • And I curse this ground that I'm walking on  
    • And I curse this town that feeds me dawn
  • 01:31 Lyrics You Gray Old Thing
    • I stare at you, gray old thing  
    • Caskets for two would uplift the day  
    • I watch your body decay 
    • As my love for you will someday  
    • Ohhhh
  • 01:43 Lyrics Odes
    • I think the alcohol is shyly kicking in  
    • I drink the bottle empty till I feel condemned  
    • My mouth has my lovers and head has many friends  
    • And I will forget them all in the morning
    • And I'll burn like a liar  
    • And I'll burn like a thief  
    • Yeah I'll burn, what desire that is left in me  
    • Fuck until forgotten the person that I am  
    • Numb what I profusely swim in as shallow-end  
    • My hands to tend to cover, my eyes that do tend to sin  
    • And I will forget them all in the morning 
    • Yeah I'll burn as a liar  
    • And I'll burn as a thief  
    • And I'll burn the desire that filling me 
    • And I'll burn like a lair  
    • And I'll burn like a thief  
    • Yeah I'll burn, What desire that is left in me yeah  
    • Nor am I estranged to you
  • 03:25 Lyrics And They Sing Out Their Lungs to Our Heartbreak Guitars
    • If I had decision 
    • I do 50 years in prison 
    • then fossilize as your wisdom
    • And its may sound strong & intensely dumb
    • but if I were wheels you’d be my hit & run 
    • Cause only the lonely is solely the only 
    • And I’m gonna feed you fondly to the wolves 
    • And I’ve been digging a canyon so deep & so long
    • To fit thick head repugnant soul 
    • I sing lalala and as you plummet slow
    • and chuckle hahaha at the rocks below  
    • Cause I’ve been waiting for the perfect go
    • with a fuck you woe and ill hearted blow 
    • Um hm
    • And if I was blessed with permission
    • From some man above to give extinction 
    • It would be my greatest revelation 
    • And it may sound hate, in every twist of fate
    • But If I was a state I’d incarcerate 
    • Cause only the lonely is solely the only 
    • & I’m gonna feed you fondly to the wolves 
    • And I’ve built trenches with no warm benches 
    • So you can seed on each other as I fill the soil 
    • I sing lalala while you stumble & fall
    • And laugh hahah as you run from it all 
    • Cause I’ve been waiting for the perfect chance
    • To show these dark days as your circumstance
    • Yeah its true, it's your circumstance

    • With a cold iron rod and forgettable summers of  
    • And unto the uttermost with woes and to familiar ghosts 
    • Woke up real lull tonight an unerring gratify  
    • Provoked my spirits dry to tantalize around my eyes 
    • Father, do you hear the woman cry? Father, do you hear the med ache? 
    • Mother, I hear the woman cry! Mother, I hear the men ache! 
    • Being a curse to all the rests my bed sounds of this manifest  
    • And Hallelujah to all the boys whom may me cum with great joy 
    • Stand up real tall tonight, opposition of appetite 
    • Wounds scar these hearts. That's right. 
    • Unfazed and feeling white

    • I hide in my pines and I feel the warmth  
    • My reserviora 
  • 02:14 Lyrics In Here
    • If I faintly cry out loud  
    • And holler out your name  
    • If I'm blindly forgetful  
    • Who my friends are today  
    • It's cause there ain't no joy
    • In here 
    • If I choose to stand alone  
    • Until my feet give way 
    • If I barely remember  
    • What line I am to sing  
    • It's cause there ain't no joy
    • In here
  • 02:34 Lyrics Me a Luna
    • Ah, it's desolate society  
    • Ah, on the armpit of American soil  
    • Ah, it's manifesting 
    • Ah, and I'm traveling low  
    • Ah, we healed a woman  
    • Ah, and made her a servant 
    • Ah, While I'm naked and shiver 
    • Ah, I feel my youth in her

    • Ah, and shut of the lights  
    • You got me a Luna I don't want  
      You got me a Luna I don't love 
      You got me a Luna I don't want - but I got it  
      You got me a Luna I don't want
  • 02:38 Lyrics In Old Age
    • Oh, he owned these dark, dark eyes 
    • So much the cold desert night would brighten next to his face  
    • And in the sky there was silence for words to convey 
    • I'd fall asleep and he'd pray, "God keep me here to stay." 
    • I cried and cried when they machine-gunned him away  
    • Stood by my window for days. He never came back again  
    • I cried and cried all day when they machine-gunned him away  
    • Stood by my window for days, but he never came back again
