Track Name: Deep End Girlfriend
I'm going off the deep end, my friend
Live life a little crazier
Do things I wouldn't do
They'll be like, "That was you?"
And I'll say, "Yeah, I've given up"

I'm going off the deep end, my friend
Since now I've nothing left to lose
I'll take up morning jogs
Find out just what I want
I guess I don't give a fuck

But I could be your deep end girlfriend
Settle down in the bottom of the pool
Your deep end girlfriend
And you could be my deep end girlfriend
Deep end girlfriend
Deep end girlfriend too

I'm going off the deep end, my friend
And I'm taking shit more seriously
My collar buttons up
No, don't give me that guff
We all gotta do what we gotta do

I'm going off the deep end, incensed
At where decisions I make lead me
Oh, yeah, I'm diving down
To where the fishes drown
And I'm crushed, and I'm crushed, and I'm crushed

But I could be your deep end girlfriend
Settle down in the bottom of the pool
Your deep end girlfriend
And you could be my deep end girlfriend
Deep end girlfriend
Deep end boyfriend
Deep end girlfriend

Love, love, lovely, please don't forgive me
I've got to be held accountable for the batshit things I do
Don't, don't, don't tell me that you love me
'Cause I know, but that won't fix the problem
When I'm hanging over the deep

It's been so long since I've taken a dip in the memory pool
My head goes down underwater, and the water's fresh and cool
I wait a moment or two, yeah, I've got nothing to lose
Well, until I see you, and then I'm up, up, gasping for air
I didn't realise you'd be there

So I'm going off the deep end, my friend
And I've never felt better
Do things I might not like
I still don't, but that's fine
But I can say that I know what's up

I'm going off the deep end, intending
To get a little smarter
To go a little farther
I'd like to think I've wisened up
But of course that's just what I want

But I could be your deep end girlfriend
Settle down in the bottom of the pool
Your deep end girlfriend
And you could be my deep end girlfriend
Deep end girlfriend
Deep end boyfriend
Deep end girlfriend too
Track Name: Acorns & Orioles
Over the summer, somehow awaiting
Sometimes craving
And I gave it all away, let my mind slip away
Kept everyone away

I can't tell you anything you don't already know
I can't tell you anything you don't already know
I can't tell you anything

I am the minister, and the impostor
You said I'm on my own
But I am not alone, you are the militant
Fighting to bring me home

I can't tell you anything you don't already know
I can't tell you anything you don't already know
I can't tell you anything

I can't tell you anything you don't already know
I can't tell you anything you don't already know
I can't tell you anything you don't already know
I can't tell you anything you don't already know
I can't tell you anything...
Track Name: Twelve Minutes, Pt. 5
v) My wife suggests to me:
a hysterectomy—
unexpected, but not unwelcome;
rip from me the capability to create new human beings.
Alive, alone:
unwind the telephone wire and dangle down by the window.
Trace your fingers on the glass and let the water drip along the pane.
To die in song;
if there is nothing quite so torturously beautiful then let me
hang my head in shame. Let me give you my full name, let me
rise up from the grave and never rest again.
(Let me hang my head in shame. Let me give you my full name. Let me
rise up from the grave and never rest again.)
Track Name: Brain Falls Out Stomp
There's a hole in my mouth where my brain falls out
And it's making me mad, so don't play me like that
And I'm taking the time out of every damn day
so you better listen what I say

There's a hole in my mouth where my brain falls out
And it's making me mad, so don't play me like that
And I'm taking the time out of every damn day
so you better listen what I say

There's a hole in my mouth where my brain falls out
And it's making me mad, so don't play me like that
And I'm taking the time out of every damn day
so you better listen what I say
