Track Name: Was A Dream
Forsake the pride you take, the shame inside your heart un-break, begin, begin
Unlock a broken path to heart of gold, undo the wrath, belong, belong
Roll out the troubled tears and carve and sculpt, erase the fears, awake, awake
Put on your funny dress the, game not won no time to rest, arise, arise

Set me free
Was a dream

The room is going dark, no knowing arrow missed the mark, refrain, refrain
three million tries and fail against his lies a light unveil, defeat, defeat
So say goodbye to face, refuse to die the sun to chase, replace, replace
green, blue, and tangerine on colored sand, the place we've been, repeat, repeat
Track Name: Family Of Fuck Ups
Family Of Fuck Ups

A territory piss off
a beast born out of decay
we're gonna slash the roof off
and toss it in the cold and shallow bay
Born again a loser
these cycles they don't end
a prayer for rain, a prayer for snow
no more, no more chemicals to soothe ya

Family Of Fuck Ups!

Shovin' like a champion
with feet all goin' goose step
Left you for the last one
No, we don't need no big guns
You the song Maria
Gonna leave the world to see ya
Holy my messiah, but
But nothing's gonna, gonna please ya

Family Of Fuck Ups!

be a wasted life, but if there''s one thing I don't need it's your two cents

Family Of Fuck Ups!

Fornicate with folly
our children packin' No Doze
A bigger dip of Mali
for the soldier in the No Go

Family Of Fuck Ups!
Track Name: Scorpio Black Magic
I will learn to break in two
as I give into the sea
cuts cold on my skin
live's OM is leaving me

wont move my legs
nowhere else to go
hair like an urchin
Reach for the surface

Stomp the beauty
tear the fragile
watch a broken heart unravel
rend the daylight
mark the battle
squander all the living matter

Scorpio sleeping
Black Magic drinking

Climb into my candy house
you'll find a treat inside
Got caught the door shut tight
Nowhere to run and hide
Track Name: Broken Sleep
I've been the banker, fallen tankers keep you up too long
to fall asleep would be a dream, but the coding came out wrong
If I could steal just a little feel from all the greats I've known
I'd seal it up, hold it to my chest and never show a single soul

This broken sleep
it burns through my chest
outside the wolves are daring me, become a tragic guest

In camouflage we hid the knives and dirty magazines
Kids makin' plans to rule the world at least by seventeen
Now time is fading all the pictures swimming through my head
Short term is getting shorter as I wait for this disease to spread

This broken sleep
it burns through my chest
outside the wolves are daring me, become a tragic guest

A Devil's Spur, it digs into my gut
leaving no questions for all those who'd ask what for
A Devil's Spur slowly lacerates me
leaving no answers for the last to betray me
Track Name: Quit You
I'm laughing at ya
I'm laughing with ya
I'm laughing at myself
as I hang from the roof-beams
I'm laughing at the
conversation dyin' off
we kid ourselves too long
and we can't find a way to stop

Lately, I been picking pieces off my bedroom floor, off my bedroom floor

Quit you, why can't I quit you
Burns like a fire storm on a sheet of ice

I'd eat a lot of pills
If I thought they'd kill
this broken record
spinning on my ceiling,
the devil wants to taste the red
poolin' in my bed
this self deception loop
of the things that we left unsaid

Lately, I been picking pieces off my bedroom floor, off my bedroom floor

Quit you, why can't I quit you
Burns like a fire storm on a sheet of ice

Jesus, save us, for love, for limb, or money

Quit you, why can't I quit you
Burns like a fire storm on a sheet of ice
Track Name: 8 In The Morning (feat. Ransom Wydner)
My make-ups smeared
Can't find no clothes
The night before is coming
back to me on tiny toes

Turn off the mirror
light another smoke
it will be cold outside
the wind will bite, the poison choke

I remember lights
the pounding rolling sounds
a 3 piece orchestra the
likes of which did shake the ground

The choice is down
how hard we'll fall
the ghost of elegance
pace back and forth trapped in these walls

8 in the morning, got a terrible comedown chasing me

I could've sworn
I fell in love
but shaky brains may
curse the home the chemicals do shove

My sutured heart
burns from the sun
should we keep going or retire
the night could still be young

If I disappear
erase all trace
a memory, a photograph
can keep the time encased

In an infinite night
your skin is lace
a daylight beam, it shines upon
your dark and pretty face

8 in the morning, got a terrible comedown chasing me

I know I let ya down
That'll never change
I cannot seem to find the path
off my own firing range

I sense the light
your heart is cold
but two can team up
tie the world in knots and swallow whole

We say it all too much
it's meaningless
but I'm there for you when I'm there for me
and that's all I can express

Another scar
recite your lines
my head is hazy
fading crazy, bed is hard to find
Track Name: Twin
You're comatose and strangled, you're comatose in your black car
they'll hang you up by your toes yea, they'll hang you up in your backyard
sing hail mary, hail mary, sing hail mary you will be alright
ya kiss me deep, ya kiss me down there, ya kiss me deep all thru the night

Ya try to go where I can't follow
But I will follow you all the way
Down, down down

A spiral scar on your arm, a spiral scar to mark your game
a written word to undo, a written word can kill the same
her tight jeans will slay you, her tight jeans infect the mind
another lover to break off, another lover to leave you blind

ya be my sin I'll be your twin yea
down, down, down
Track Name: One Sexy Moment
Let it Out, Take it all out on me
I make a good punching bag, your own amputee

ALL I WANTED WAS ONE SEXY MOMENT WITH YOU

I never lied, it was clear from the start
I've got nothing to give and nothing inside to impart

ALL I WANTED WAS ONE SEXY MOMENT WITH YOU

I've got nothing, i've got nothing
I've got moments to give, we've got moments to live
We've got nothing
Track Name: Uppers And Downers (feat. Calhoon Popadopolis)
bent out of shape and broken under your gaze
i will try to stand but my legs are too weak
for these TV dinners eatin' me inside out
but i will try to stand and i will fall again

Uppers and downers
keep spinning' me around

baby you got a big mind, i'd like to find me a tiny corner to hide in
we could paint all our bones red, tie like a twizzler, writhing in your bed
and I'll leave you when you say the word but until then i'm glued right here
could you keep me in your heart or at least somewhere quite near

Uppers and downers, oh baby
keep spinning' me around

Xanax or Xanaflex, up one day down the next, some day's my body rejects, swallow, sniff, even inject tab methadone chased with the percocets, I see thunder in oklahoma off acid trip hoppin 3 or 4 soma, coke for no coma, i'm still sayin' i'm sober, so why not split and roll up this Chron' Doja, while you're out grab me a few 4 Loco's, these mushies kickin' in and I don't wanna leave my local area, i got this E down me Bra, drownin' with the Jack and Jameson, do ya huh? cuz I will add the mescaline for the thrill and these aint the knock-offs y'all, these the real deal, I don't play ya know, I don't mess around, I'm feelin' kinda funny, hold up I need to lay down...

Let me taste then Tango so we'll get mangled
Track Name: Naked Maybes (feat. Ria)
reach for your face
it's been replaced
feet in cement
stuck in this space
I'd take you down
no second thought
i'll take you out
one single shot

Naked maybes
They're gonna ride
Naked maybes
nowhere to hide

I'll hold you deep
folding to weep
strength is the key
just tell 'em free
(I'll) be the victim
while you sicken
Fall to defeat
seal to complete

There's no way forward
There's no way back


-Megan Zimmerman & Camden Chamberlain
Track Name: Mouths Of Infants
We are silent, No I am silent
Birds sit on Pillars, watch the ants below
Going to and fro, forgetting to sing their praise
Going to and fro, forgetting to sing their praise

MOUTHS OF INFANTS

We are silent, no I am silent
A hundred times a night this life gets amplified
Welcome to the pantheon of my bewilderment
Welcome to the pantheon of my bewilderment
Track Name: Bachelor Number Two
Bachelor number 2
watcha gonna do without me there beside you
Bachelor number 2
how are you functioning without me there to guide you
Bachelor number 2
you were the last of a broken line to follow
footprints well worn in
down a one way path into the ocean to swallow

The single life
It gonna eat you alive

Bachelor number 2
will the waves be kinder to you than your father
a row boat with no oars
you got a life vest filled with cannon fodder
Bachelor number 2
you were the only hope of a town called disaster
dandelion seeds will blow
and the wind will sing of your fate hereafter

Bachelor number 2
how she may have loved you but now you'll never know her
Bachelor number 2
give yourself over to the storm dear lover
Track Name: Fake Bride
Broken bones never heal
Let's close the deal
Shoulder stars start to spin
I'll be your twin

Come inside, be my ride, Fake Bride

goat stands tall
windmill falls, I watch it all
Lights burn out
Choke down my doubt, Go in all out

Come inside, be my ride, Fake Bride

cigarette burnin'
my fingers are learnin'
that I don't need no one
no one can decipher the text
Track Name: Claw My Way Out (feat. Ria)
I'm trying to claw my way out
but this world keeps having it's way with me
it's wrapped it's talons around my throat
and choking me day by day

If you should find me by the side of the road
pick my ass up and take me home

I'm trying to claw my way out
but this state keeps having it's way with me
belittling with it's dependency
a dogma forced on all

If you should find me by the side of the road
pick my ass up and take me home

Puncture wounds in my desires
This world down in flames

I'm trying to claw my way out
to discover my own divinity
my core's internal harmony
I'll release the weight of the world

If you should find me by the side of the road
pick my ass up and take me home
Track Name: Little Girls Dressed As Women
we stood with grace,
paper on our eyes
taste worlds with our minds
defining questions, glowing fine lines

little girls dressed as women
every moment penetrates
little girls dressed as women
memories enslave

pores altering our senses
we trip to break thru fences
distracted by expression
defining questions, glowing fine lines

a distant voice told me hold on
so i held on as i watched your body convulse
pump again pump again to live
