Track Name: Digging in the Desert
Sat upon leather couch and stared at one another
I walked a mile in his shoes
called him my brother
He opened up a gaping mouth
I saw into the future
He wasted all my precious time
Digging, digging in the desert

Self
Indulgent
So righteous
I’m not blameless
I got an appetite
Will you feed it
It’s not enough baby
Roll on by

We moved along dusty floors breathed into each other
I looked into his bleeding eyes
Decided not to bother
We knew it was our fallacy
To trust in one another
And I wasted all his precious time
Dancing, dancing in the gutter

Self
Indulgent
So righteous
I’m not blameless
I got an appetite
will you feed it
It’s not enough baby
Roll on by
Track Name: All Night Long
Waiting
You stayed up
Waiting
You got drunk
Waiting
You gave up
Waiting
On the dream

Waiting
Your words slurred
Waiting
All filled with lies
Waiting
Well honey
Waiting
I ate them up

They were waiting all night
They were waiting all night long

Waiting
It’s light out
Waiting
To bright for this
Waiting
Just one more
Waiting
It's 5 o'clock
Waiting
I can taste you
Waiting
Was he worth it
Waiting
You gave up
Waiting
On the dream
Track Name: Bugs
Bugs they're crawling
Not useful, blood drawing
They burrow, can't shake it
Oh it's all inside your head
You might as well be dead

You lay there, you're tossing
You hear em, they're calling
Your failures, your body
and the words you should have said
Yeah
1, 2, 3, 4
Bugs, keep coming
Bugs, I warn you
Bugs, your worries
Bugs, it's cancer
Bugs, they burrow
Bugs, defeat us
Bugs they'll kill ya
oh let's give it all a rest
Track Name: Good Boy
Dead eyes can you see me
Listen to me
I bore my weight into your flesh
In your naivety
Not cheap, i’m not selling
And I’ll make you rich
And you’re weak with desire as deep as the marks in your flesh
But you want it real
Good boy
I can make you sit
Good boy
We can take it slow
Good boy
I can make you wait
Good Boy
Sit nice, you look pretty
Lift up your face
Fantasy all that’s in your mind
And see this is what it takes
Exhale so we can taste you
And she’ll bare her teeth
And you cheat with desire while apathy’s warming your bed
But you want it real
Good boy
I can make you beg
Good boy
We can take it slow
Good boy
I can make you fetch
For it,
You’ll beg for it
You’ll crawl for it
Wanna be your slave
Never be
He’ll never be your dog
Good boy
I can make you wait
Good boy
Can you make him stay
Good boy
We can take it slow
Track Name: You Got It
Hearing those whispers of truth
And you have nothing to prove
Abandoning all that was built
Rejecting the shame and the guilt

You want it want it
You want it right now
You got it got it
Can’t be lifted out

Breaking through barriers of pain
Shedding off the old ways
Abandoning stories of men
Reclaiming your body again

You got it got it
It’s not good enough
You had it had it
And it left you raw

He is wealthy
You waste away
Take plenty
So stifling

He is wealthy
You waste away
Take plenty
Take plenty

Abandon shame
Abandon Guilt
Abandon Thin
Abandon Flaw
I want it, I want it, I want it, I want it, I want it all
Track Name: Drowning in Piss
Drowning in Piss
You'll learn to swim
To the abyss
they say I'm high I'm high I'm high I'm high
What do you need
To let him in
Its holding you down
he screams I'm high I'm high I'm high I'm high as shit

Blue eyes
Black hair
standing in line
just to touch faith
brake lights
cold steel
standing in light
just to watch them crash

Where do they live
these rats inside
they're pulling you in
they say I'm high I'm High I'm high I'm high
I'm covered in shit
but I want money
I'm selling you out
you say I'm high I'm high I'm high as shit

Blue eyes
Black hair
standing in line
just to touch faith
brake lights
cold steel
standing in light
just to watch them crash

Do trust him when he's high
Do you need him cause it gets you by
Do love him when he lies
do you need him cause he lets you by
Track Name: Fantasy of Destructive Force
My skin is on fire
Body Aches
Been flailing through the night
Visualising flesh
Why so hostile
Why don’t you need me anymore
Why so hostile
Why can’t you give me a smile

We Try
We Dream
We Trust
We lie
We’re not invincible

He’s slim and tall
He’s filled with white hot rage
We want to fall
We dream of ecstasy
My mind is warped
With expensive taste
A fantasy…
of destructive force

Your lacking desire
A weak character
You’re not invincible
Up against the wall
So Faithful
Why so hostile
Why don’t you leave me alone

We Try
We Dream
We Trust
We lie
We’re not invincible

He’s slim and tall
He’s filled with white hot rage
We want to fall
We dream of ecstasy
My mind is warped
With expensive taste
A fantasy…
of destructive force
Track Name: LSD
Tonight
I’ll be whoever you like
I need more affection
Cause we’re just waiting on disease
To take us down
In the streets tonight
We’ll drop our bodies
We’re just waiting on the dream

We could stay here
I’ll drag you down
We could stay but we’re just waiting for the end
So i left you
Deserted in the heat
I’m so sorry
I can’t save you tonight

Tonight
I’ll do whatever you like
We’re all naked
On display
Led by our physical demands
You can’t own me
Cause the pain won’t break me down
You can’t break me tonight

We could stay here
I’ll drag you down
We could stay but we’re just waiting for the end
So i left you
Deserted in the heat
I’m so sorry
I can’t save you tonight

Tonight
I’ll be whoever you like
Cause i need more possessions
To feed my masculine disease
So take me out
Into the world tonight
...with violence
We’re still waiting on the dream
