Cheribum 01:26
cheribum's got all my love letters she rescued the ones i took to the dump all the little bits of sweet nothings all the piranhas nibbling my heart all the piranhas nibbling my heart it's a start oceans may part the big book of love writ on our hearts words smear on the page the passion the rage the court and the spark

Holy Bones 02:38
take your rings off take your skin off stand in your holy bones up to your sacrum in snow who'll believe you who'll forgive you when your closet breaks open with ghosts? raucously holding a toast? when your heart breaks loose from its shackles? and all your brothers and sisters sort through your worldly possessions luggage tags on all of the chair legs legacies written in ink nailing down your life take your rings off take your skin off stand in your holy bones up to your sacrum in snow
4.
sun shines in from the window waiting for take off announcing your schemes what if there was no weight gravity's lifted we're drifting in to space and he says you should be a doctor i can see it in your eyes oh to be my father's daughter have i been living a lie? all these years spent trying all these years spent trying all these years spent trying winter's coming better curl up in a blanket and cry medicine for your sorrow i've got medicine for your pain an aching back a nagging ache a ragged jagged vein and he says you should be a lawyer i can hear it in your style oh to be my heart's desire have i been living a lie?

Put Up 03:17
you say you're crazy you say you're sorry well i don't blame you it's pretty hazy it was a long night until the crack of dawn there were bright lights there were sirens all those nights of simple touch convene to be a little much you only hurt the ones you love 'cause they're the only ones who put up put up with your shit blood is thick thicker than water not as nice to sip not as pure to swim in all those nights of simple touch convene to be a little much you only hurt the ones you love 'cause they're the only ones who put up put up with your shit
6.
Archaeology 03:34
the archaeology of our recycling the glass bottles pile for weeks the glass bottles pile for weeks do you remember the dead guy ale night? do you remember the stump jump cabernet night? yet you say you get only the remaining pile of me after i have spent all my other energy you say you get only the remaining pile of me after i have spent all my other energy on something other than you but the archaeology of our recycling speaks a different truth to me the glass bottles are piled for weeks do you remember that bunny riesling? and the guacamole and those dos equis? yet you say you get only the remaining pile of me after i have spent all my other energy you say you get only the remaining pile of me after i have spent all my other energy on something other than you

Veal 02:10
i will never see the sun i will never see the sky i'll stay in my cage forever i'll never see the rain i'll never see the grass like a goose nailed to a board becoming fois gras fois gras fois gras what karma! what did i do? to deserve this? look what i'm going through! i'll never see the rain or the rivers blue and i will certainly never jump over the moon! i'll never see the sky or the ocean blue and i will certainly never jump over the moon i will never see the sun i will never see the sky i'll stay in my cage forever
8.
don't hurt yourself it's going bad all the pain you've ever had wad it up into a paper ball there's a barrel with a fire where you can burn it all burn it all burn it off you can sweat it out a million moths gather round your heart burn it off you can sweat it out a million moths gather round your heart
