oh tell old, old pharaoh
it took awhile for me to stand up, i used the railing like a child, seventeen seventeen vicious like the tide you pull us down with you where nothing's good or new vicious point of view
call me names and forget i said anything to inflate your head vicious like the tide
and if you couldn't, i couldn't but you are confident still two parts of something concurrent they pillow talk in the well i sweep the crumbs in a hurry and honey, i love you so well, so well
Go Go Go 01:14
go go go you're gone no need to see you home what's the thing you want foil with the golden tone foil with the golden tongue go home and sleep alone what does it mean to sleep in a room you call your own no curtain to cut the light and the blanket feels like stone the money's always tight the things i whispered home will reach your ears tonight go go go you're gone
you're when the pen bleeds out and i can't rub you out you call me names that i just learned about i was doing fine keeping on the silent side i was doing fine keeping myself quiet now these things that you're writing i can't understand written in a backhand prose and a red pen leave me alone
If You Could 00:53
if you could come downstairs to help me out i wanted to change i couldn't do it, i tried
all this pent up fight i didn't use spilling from my rib into my shoes anything to inflate your head
it's vague like the wind and it lingers like a friend a sleeper in my bed and you are still somewhere a threat as vague as nature are you hurting her
i'm attuned to the name you curse i held on to the banister they won't talk to you like you want them to they won't talk to you (vicious like the tide)
I've No Salt 00:51
i've no salt i'm not dry i'm a lie, i'm a pretty lie fare thee well i have bathed a degree too high i'm a lie, i'm a pretty lie fare thee well
my god, my god i pray that these things never cease the sand and the sea the rustle of water the lightening from heaven the prayer of man
