PLEASE PLEASE, NO CONFETTI
pull the tube
pull the tube that feeds me
no parade
no confetti
im ready

shoot the nurse
shoot the nurse that changed me
no funeral
no flowers
no confetti
she's ready

MONEY AND BONES
i've seen how it ends
they all die fat
i'll drink to that
i'll drink to that

i watched it get started
they killed a man
he had a better plan
they played a better hand

and i know how it goes
they're set up just like dominoes
what you think about that
what you think about that

they got everything they need to put you away

all your microphones
all your telephones
all your no fly zones got owned

these dirty hands
these dirty hands
they all smell like money and bones
money and bones
money and bones

all the telephones
all your microphones
all your cameras they got owned

these dirty hands
these dirty hands
they all smell like money and bones
money and bones
money and bones

TIGHT ROPE WALKER
it's a pretty thin line
between staying and leaving
between faith and believing
i walked that line today

don't look at the ground
refrain from talking
don't make a sound
while i'm tight rope walking

there's a thin line
between sleeping and waking
between asking and taking
i walked that line today

ROT
some things will rot
before they're buried
it's kind of
scary if i focus and
take a look
its like they got
wide open
wide open
wide open wounds

not like their arms are broken
they're just getting
sore bones from all
the drinking and smoking
it's like they have
wide open
wide open
wide open wounds

some things just rot
there's not a button to stop it
so grab a chair and accept the diagnostic
you've just got wide open
wide open
wide open wounds

HOWLIN
grow a coat when it snows
find shelter when it rains
put your paws to your ears
when anyone complains
maybe you'll stay sane

you've got
canibal instincts
you've got
canibal instincts

keep an eye while you sleep
guard your children like sheep
howl when you're lonely, howl when you're lonely
maybe you'll stay sane

keep your claws nice and clean
make your growl sounding mean
keep your tail alert hide the bones in the dirt

howl when you're lonely
bite when you're scared
sink your teeth in slowly
this cut ain't prepared

howl when you're lonely
growl when you're mad
sink your fangs in slowly
sometimes it goes bad

 

CAN I GET A KISS
do my hands feel dry
do my hands feel dry
i guess this should be our goodbye

is my breath getting heavy
is my breath getting heavy
is it bustin you up all open like a levee?

and the drinks are contagious
and the girls are flirtatious
the looks i get are straight up outrageous

is my mouth feel dry
is my mouth getting dry
i guess this wont be our goodbye

am i the one you miss
am i the one you miss
is this the part where we're supposed to kiss

and i can't take the heat
so i painted it blue
it doesn't have a thing to do with you
and the drinks are contagious
and the girls are contagious
the looks i get are straight up outrageous

can i get a kiss
can i get a kiss
or are you gonna leave me like this

SWIM
lets go for a swim
lets go for a swim
you'll come clean
you're coming clean

look in the eye
who's in on this
all the code names please
who's on the list

you can leave just as
soon as you spill everything else

your unknown plot
your secret thought
when you were a kid
your back woods pot

this ain't no joke
this ain't no joke
you'll come clean
or else you choke

SATELLITE
gonna shoot your satellite
gonna shoot your satellite
time to illuminate the night
time to eliminate the freight
this is my second wind
its my second wind
take a deep breath and hold it in

ive gotten so good
at playing serious
rehearsing my lines
as they break down my front door
what'd you come here for?
why'd you bust down the door

kiss the satellite goodbye
kiss that thing goodbye
don't get too involved
don't wonder why
this is my second wind
it's my second wind
this is where the real show begins
