lyrics

the mosquito song

I know, I know
That I’m not going anywhere
Right now, per say, right now
I’ll stay

And I know
So you don’t need to waste your breath to say
You know, you know, you know
I know

I need out
I need out
I need out

There is a mosquito
Buzzing all around the room
And buzz, and buzz
Around the room

But it plain refuses
To spend a moment on my arm
To suck my blood, and bite my skin
And leave it red and raw

I might need a little roughin up
If I’m gonna leave
I might need a little roughin up
If I’m gonna leave

I know, I know
That I’m not going anywhere
Right now, right now, right now
Right now

I need out
I need out
I need out

parasite

I want you in my skin
Just like a parasite
To fuel my appetite

I want you to be my sin
Tonight I’m getting hungry
And those apples
Are looking so ripe

I’m not a snake
I’m not a goddess

I’m just a girl in a garden
You’re a boy thats forgotten
What’s wrong with this picture?
Baby, we’re animals
Baby, we’re biblical

Don’t look behind you
Towards the place we leave
I know you don’t believe
A pillar of salt is all thats left of us
When you choose not to trust me

I’m not a snake
I’m not a goddess
Here, take these clothes that I give you
Cover those grooves in the small of your back
I’ll run my fingertips lightly
Baby, surrender
It’s only biblical

I don’t wanna lay here on my death bed
Thinking well at least, life was easy
I don’t wanna lay here on my death bed
Thinking well at least, life was easy
I don’t wanna lay here, on my death bed
Thinking well at least, at least, at least
Life was easy, easy, easy, easy

I’m not a snake
That was easy
I’m not a god
I don’t believe you

I’m not a snake
That was easy
Don’t look back now
Leave the garden

I’m not a snake
That was easy
I’m not a god
I don’t believe you
I’m not a snake
Take these clothes now
We gotta go now
Nothings growing

poison ivy

I don't know anything

I don't know anything

I don't know anything

About whats been going on

 

Don't come to me for advice

Don't come to me for absolution

I'm stinking to my guns

Not coming to any conclusions

 

I, I am poison ivy

Don't kiss me

I, I am poison ivy

Dont kiss me

 

My fingers are stained

Black and blue

From putting pen to paper

Trying to erase you

 

I'm not drunk enough to sleep

Feels like someone is trying to keep me

Alone enough to get me used to the feeling

 

I, I am poison ivy

Don't kiss me

I, I am poison ivy

Don't kiss me

 

We used to kiss and hug

Now it's just bleed and slug

Bleed and slug

Oh, you got my belly (slug)

Oh, you got my nose (slug)

Oh, you got my modesty (slug)

Oh, you got my clothes (slug)

Oh, you got my jealousy (slug)

Oh, you got my nose (slug)

 

It meant everything as long as we were sober

I'm planning on music curing my hangover tomorrow

 

It meant everything as long as we were sober

I'm planning on music curing my hangover tomorrow

 

Oh, oh, oh

Oh, oh, oh  x6

 

I don't know anything (I don't know anything)

I don't know anything (Anything)

 

I don't know anything (I don't know anything)

I don't know anything (About what's been going on)

devils theory

Getting on the elevator
Going down to the hotel buffet
It seems like everyday
I’m at another hotel buffet
Eh, so, I, stay, hey

What should I put on my plate?
Feel like I already ate
Not really sure of the date
Waiting for the plane to take me away

What should I put on my plate?
Feel like I already ate
Not really sure of the date
Waiting for the plane to take me away

To the next place
Take out my map now
Close my eyes and drop my finger down
No matter what I may do
I’m always one a table two

Two, so, I, flew, hey

What should I put on my plate?
Feel like I already ate
Not really sure of the date
Waiting for the plane to take me

What should I put on my plate?
Feel like I already ate
Not really sure of the date
Waiting for the plane to take me

And if all at once you here me
Blame it on the devils theory
Pulling myself across time zones
Finding hotels to rest my bones x3

(Away, away, away, away
Away, away, away)

HEY!

What should I put on my plate?
Feel like I already ate
Not really sure of the date
Waiting for the plane to take me

Pulling myself across time zones

love song

I used to think that love songs
were impressive
That’s what I’d listen to
all those times you’d get aggressive
living beside white stucco walls
knowing that someday I’d get there:
to a place where everyone knows my real name
and strokes my head
instead of my hair
instead of just my hair

I don’t need somebody to play me a love song
I just need somebody that’ll show me they know some
I don’t need somebody to play me a love song
I just need somebody that’ll show me they know some

I used to think writing a love song
could be harder
It seemed so easy to
pretend to thrill you underneath the covers
you were fogging up my mirrors
I can’t see
Your empty words are food to me
I can’t eat them anymore
My teeth are sore

I don’t need somebody to play me a love song
I just need somebody that’ll show me they know some
I don’t need somebody to play me a love song
I just need somebody that’ll show me they know some

running game

Im gettin’ used to runnin’
I’m gettin’ used to runnin’ away
Got me goin’ further
than ordinary on that first day
Now you got me goin’ faster
I’m always runnin’ just runnin’ just runnin’

Criminals aren’t up this early
so I’m not locking any doors

When I meet you in the city
I can’t stop staring at the mountains baby
I got the north on my mind
All you got down here is lights
and cigarettes
and time
What’s the time?

Oh criminals aren’t up this early
so I won’t worry
Criminals aren’t up this early
So I’m not locking any doors
I’m not locking any doors

hedgehogs dilemma

Oh, my friend, dear porcupine
Our future is foretold
So lets forget and redefine
Our pain as close and warm

Please, darling
Take me away
Huddle together for warmth
We say

Please, darling
Take me away
Huddle together for warmth
We say

Oh, my friend, our spikes are getting close
And our bodies itch to touch
But the feeling is the most conflicted
Lean closer
Yeah, we’ll get injured
But please lean closer

Conflicted
Lean closer
Yeah, we’ll get injured
But, please
Lean closer

Please, darling
Take me away
Huddle together for warmth
We say

Please, darling
Take me away
Huddle together for warmth
We say

It ain’t easy being leaned on
From both sides
Once you get past the pain
It’s worth it for the rush

Please, darling
Take me away
Huddle together for warmth
We say

Please, darling
Take me away
Huddle together for warmth
We say

Huddle together for warmth
We say
Huddle together for warmth
We say
Huddle together for warmth
You say

auto-send

What should I do, what should I do with you
I’ll do anything as long as you tell me to
Finding words was never hard for me
But lately I’ve been undershooting subtlety

We’re all right

What did I do, what did I do to you
It feels different today than it used to
I wanna curl up and feel so far away
But you tell me to sit up baby, all the way

No more flirty headrests on your shoulder
Your arm sneaking around mine makes me bolder
If you need me to, I will walk away
Or baby baby I can stay, either way

We’re all right

Either way

We’re all right

like that

I know I know I know I know
a place like that
Like the one you described
You told me you told me you told me
with your face like that:
All wistful
and dreamy
and unlikely
to understand that
we could go we could go we could go
we could go there
if I could tell you that

But every time I try
I stutter every other word
and I know it’s absurd
I can’t lie to you
You can lie to me anytime you want to

I don’t know why
I called you that
and you turned away
and you walked away from me
with your face like that:
All broken
and tired
and precisely
why I can’t
lie, lie, on the couch next to you like that

But every time I try
I stutter every other word
and I know it’s absurd
I can’t lie to you
You can lie to me anytime you want to

Just because I write a song about you
doesn’t mean I like you
so you can stop looking so concerned
I have learned discretion
misdirection of frustration
need some mediation
inflating of flirtation
under our instigation
and the room smells
of jubilation

Every time I try
I stutter every other word

rude kinda solicitor

I used to understand so well
Hell, I used to know everything
She likes bar-hopping on Sundays
She likes smoking weed all week
She thinks it’s cigarettes
Making her life worth while

Wake up, wake up
My lungs are shot
And the guns still
Smoking hot

You’re a rude kinda solicitor
Da, da, da, da, da, da
You’re a rude kinda solicitor
Da, da, da, da, da, da
You’re a rude kinda solicitor
Da, da, da, da, da, da
You’re a rude kinda solicitor
Da, da, da, da, da, da

I used to have a plan
Damn, now I don’t know where I am
Cause the more beer I drink
The more I can’t think
Of anything to write
It feels really nice

Wake up, wake up
My lungs are shot
And the guns still
Smoking hot

You’re a rude kinda solicitor
Da, da, da, da, da, da
You’re a rude kinda solicitor
Da, da, da, da, da, da
You’re a rude kinda solicitor
Da, da, da, da, da, da
You’re a rude kinda solicitor
Da, da, da, da, da, da

She said
Be happy now, be happy now
Be happy now, be happy now
Be happy now, be happy now
Be happy now

electric pennies

I, I, I x3

I wanna know what it’s like
Where you’re at
Is it full of green
And all the happy things?

I plead, I plead
A lapse in sanity
I know, I know
The beat inside of me

I’ve been waiting days
But these minutes feel the longest
So far away
But I bet you didn’t know

I, I, I
And

I want, I want, I want
(1, 2, 3)
I want, I want, I want
(1, 2, 3)
I want, I want, I want
(1, 2, 3)
I want, I want, I want

To pay with electric pennies
All night long
I wanna pay with electric pennies
All night long

I, I, I x3

I wanna know what it’s like
Where you’re at
Is it the perfect scene
Are you the kingdoms Queen?

I won’t, I won’t
Wear that servants dress
I can’t, I can’t
Clean up your mess

I’ve been waiting days
But these minutes feel the longest
So far away
But I bet you didn’t know

I, I, I
And

I want, I want, I want
(1, 2, 3)
I want, I want, I want
(1, 2, 3)
I want, I want, I want
(1, 2, 3)
I want, I want, I want

To pay with electric pennies
All night long
I wanna pay with electric pennies
All night long

One time
Is two many
But three defeats me

Pay with electric pennies
All night long
I wanna pay with electric pennies
All night long

I, I, I x3

underwater

You told me that I don’t look happy
As if it’s the only thing a person can be
But you know, your laughter sounds wrong
And your love poems are sappy
Sometimes I need sometime alone
To just be unhappy

I’m underwater
And I’m not running away
Underwater
Not walking away

I listened to a thing called confidence
Without a thought to consequence
I hold a letter, our latest correspondence
You’ve covered it with stickers
And you’ve sealed it with a kiss
But you must have missed
Your lipstick is bleeding off the page

You’ve enclosed a picture
And in that picture

I’m underwater
And I’m not walking away
Underwater
Uh-underwater
And I’m not running away
Underwater, underwater
Underwater

noise

Dark silhouetted man
Pours tequila over coffee mugs
Mixed with T.V. light turns fire light and gloves
Into something more like love

Crazy things happen
When the moon is full
And it’s full tomorrow

My fingers cold as ice
Over battle wounds from the night before
We are all friends here
Lying on the living room floor

Take a moment
(To stop, and drop, and let the noise roll over you)
To let the noise roll over you
And over you
And let the noise roll over you

Let the noise, let the noise, let the noise
Let the noise roll over you

Incense burning through the fire
Lighting places we conspire to go
And play on like a playground
Rambling children in a sandbox
Desire climbing on the walls
We buy our own kicks
In fantasies we play over in our minds

We wonder if we’re going no where
Directionless, naive, irrelevant
But, you gotta, let, the noise

Roll over you and over you and over you

Let the noise, let the noise, let the noise
Let the noise roll x5

Let the noise roll over you
