To find a pair of earrings made of human bone I know where to shop, I know where to go Shade of lamp, Skin of man I know where, I know where Ed Gein's Etsy I've got something special for you to wear Something that no one else will ever have Something nice for you to wear When craft turns into crime, when craft turns into crime Sell her, sell him Ed Gein's Etsy

Lips full of potential She's got me in a knot A human pretzel And she's the salt I'm so thirsty and she's a tall glass of water To crawl inside of you, to crawl inside of you And lay down for a while To bask in the exile... from me. Nadia, how's it feel to be like you? Now I feel just like you. Through your eyes I see strange people that I used to know It's just like that episode of The Twilight Zone If I'm in your body where did you go? You're probably at home all alone on my couch watching The Twilight Zone I might pretend I'm trapped here 'cause I don't wanna go I hope you like my cat and my apartment 'cause I'm never coming home Please tell my mom I love her and my father I hope you'll be, no, I know you'll be an excellent daughter She's so thirsty and I'm a tall glass of water She's so thirsty and I'm a tall... glass Nadia, how's it feel to be like me? Now you feel just like me.

I'm 31 years old and I still don't wanna go. Hey dad can you call me into work today? I have an extreme case of "not wanting to sit and stare at a screen all day" Pushing pixels for the man My teeth are rot so I need this dental plan I'm just another corpse in queue But so are you A break room for the souls Who need some time alone And the workers can't go home Until they've spent all their bones Time waits for... no one Remember when Lauryn Hill's character's mom in the movie Sister Act II said "Music doesn't pay the bills." and "Music doesn't put food on the table." Well, she was right. Learn to play guitar And get a free drink at the bar And aint it a shame no one likes your band And you tried so hard A break room for the souls Who need some time alone And the workers can't go home Until they've spent all their bones Time waits for... no one I'm ashamed I'm afraid That I'm so lame And time won't wait for me to get it together Now I'm losing my mind, Now I'm losing my job Now my cat is dying, and my car's been robbed All my funds are waning and the man's complaining Who am I fooling? My man is gone. Time waits for... no one I'm getting older and I'm so afraid to die Maybe I should quit smoking, maybe I should start taking vitamins Maybe I should move to the country and start a family, a real nice family Eat some fucking peaches and shit I don't know Or maybe I should listen to Frankie... and relax Or move to Hollywood.

Strangers in the same apartment Is that what we've become just room mates? We share the same cutting board And I think you're ready to cut me off with the internet And start reading books about blowing glass And I was always careful with your cutlery And you know me I'm rather clumsy With knives and self-esteem With knives and self-esteem I have none left, I'm getting older And I wanted to grow old with you But sometimes I can't get what I want So I'll leave it up to you So you asked if I needed a hand To carry my stuff down to the van And I said "No thanks I need the excercise" So I can find another man. But I'm a lazy looker And I know I won't find shit And if I'm destined for boredom Then so be it. I'm pretty good at pacing down the pavement And wasting gasoline And shuffling through the stations to find a song That reminds me of what we used to be And I'm so sorry for wasting all your time Even vaseline couldn't free me from this bind And if you want to be free you must leave this soul behind So you asked if you could hold my hand If we could start over again But I've already packed the van

Hot Nort, top floor, bring cash Stale sheets, clean ice, no phone Knock twice, knock twice, get back Back stairs, small bills, no names. Black market penicillin, meet me at the Hot Nort Black market penicillin, meet me at the Mill Ho Back stairs, small bills, no phone Pink pills, small can, go home Get well, get well, get back Hot Nort, top floor, bring cash Take 2 twice a day with a glass of water Supplement with a decent probiotic Stop taking if your skin turns red Cause you could be allergic and end up dying Black market penicillin, meet me at the Hot Nort Black market penicillin, meet me at the Mill Ho Hot Nort, top floor, bring cash

The painting on the wall At the hospital This acrylic woman won't let me get no sleep at all And all the nurses in the hall agree that he has lost his mind He kept repeating this address And clutching his stomach He kept repeating this address It seemed so cryptic A combination of 4 numbers Whispered in a certain way He tells his daughter everyday Why won't you just take me 3737 N. Clark St. And all he wanted was a dog One Chicago-style dog One last dog before he's gone Now, Just put me in the car Won't even wear my seatbelt 'cause I live for danger You know me I'm a red hots man Born and raised in Chicago land Just hold the ketchup Poppy seed bun Electric green relish And extra pickle Nananananana Drag it through the garden Drag it through the garden 3737 N. Clark St.

The band played loud on Wendy Way In Dorothy's room on Demon days Strum to strike a feeling, Strum to strike a feeling We were so depressed, a teenage mess And all those songs we sang together were so out of tune But what I wouldn't give to be back there in that old bedroom And those were the best times of our lives Memories that I can't set aside I'll love you all until the day I die And all these years they will go by and I still think of you sometimes We Graduate In our cars we'd drive for miles not going anywhere In our cars we'd drive for miles not going anywhere And sometimes I go back there, sometimes I go back there But it's all changed, the people are so strange and we are all strangers now in the end And those were the best times of our lives Memories that I can't set aside I'll love you all until the day I die And all these years they will go by and I still think of you sometimes Do you ever think of me? We were young, we were young

We took a vacation to Europe We flew into Paris then hopped a train to Rome made stops along the way the Alps were beautiful the food was so inspired When we got home we wish we had stayed Just one more week the people were so friendly Now we're back it seems like everything we eat is made of enriched wheat flour (ya's and no's) I'm gonna need a couple days to think about it Gonna need a couple days to think about it Need a couple days, need a couple days, need a couple days We went so see a show at the Hideout A couple weeks ago, we thought that the First two bands were better than the headliner or as we call it the band that played last It's not that they were bad we just felt some of their songs lacked a bit of focus And they should spend more time looking at their hands and concentrating on their tones. (ya's and no's) I'm gonna need a couple days to think about it Gonna need a couple days to think about it Need a couple days, need a couple days need a couple days Sometimes I wonder why we have to be so loud Our jokes are funny but they don't always make us proud Yet still we scream em so they can hear em in the clouds It keeps us pleasant while we wait here on the ground.

In the year 2066 When all the plants have died and there's no oxygen left I only have enough to last me for 3 more days But there's always the casino In the war of 2057 alien lifeforms descended upon us with advanced weaponry even the U.S. government couldn't describe The forests were scorched, the lakes were sucked dry And a select colony of us was unlucky enough to survive Now I'll tell you where I've got to go To breathe... I gambled myself down to 4 hours left of oxygen But I think, I have a feeling I'm about to have a lucky streak I think I have a feeling that maybe I could win it all and live forever I need a queen, I need a queen To reign I need a king, I need a king To reign Now I'll tell you where I've got to go To breathe...
