Track Name: Fly Blood and Lilacs
I lift my feet and stand to pray
I walk down grass seed pathways
I drink from racks to which I have no claim
You still love me anyway

I am the fly in the display case
I am the fly

Yellow-legged boy, broken
With feet full of glass
Yellow smoke rising from the compromise crash
Your body is warm and smooth
Like tragedy makes the self hate move aside
For shared manias
Shining new

Covered in lilacs
I heard an old woman say
Do you pray?
Well I still love you anyway

Will you still love me when the day goes
When the mold on my face grows
And I wonder
Where did I think it'd all go?
Track Name: Entitlement
Life is learning to take things for granted
I watch clouds separate in car window reflections
Learning things is easy
Beauty is easy

I don't feel young
It does feel too late
So close am I
You feel my hate

So when I wake
Up the same every day
In a room in a house
That was built buy people who can't
Afford to live in the neighborhood
It's the same
It's the same every day
I'm afraid and ashamed
To spit out the spoon while the glue's still setting
Track Name: There's Always a Block in My Mind
There's always a block in my mind
There's always a block in my mind
I don't know how long it's been there
Or if I've even had time
To notice it
But it's there

There's always a block in my mind
There's always a block in my mind
I like most women better from behind
There's always a block in my mind

I have a good amount of conversations
I don't care about most of them
I don't remember most of them

There's always a block in my mind
There's always a block in my mind
I like most women better from behind
There's always a block in my mind

I like most women better from behind
Hospice care, they only provide
For the last six months of your life
There's always a block in my mind
Always a block
