Track Name: Clean Disease
Tanium you've got your bandage on tight
Tanium- let's waste a toast to tonight
Tanium you never set me so free
I loved you / You left me / You are my Clean Disease

I will take you over there
I will take you over

Get back Get back You're the son of a bitch
Get back Get back You are my pretty little itch
Get back Get back You are so selfless but mean
I loved you, you left me you are my Clean Disease

Tanium you always let me cry alone
You always try the XX chromosome
I know ! (but you never really had a doubt)
I know ! (but you're never really sure)

I will take you over there (la la na na )
I will take you over

Know you want what's on my mind
You feel so cold so cold so cold so cold

Get back Get back You're the son of a bitch
Get back Get back You are my pretty little itch
Get back Get back You are so precious and mean
I loved you, you left me you are my Clean Disease
Track Name: Tragedy
Burgundy (Tragedy)

we're not gunning for anything that don't seem fit for us
we've become so torn up
me left foot's dragging
mangled up and bloody
your entrails default
on people screws

i was so cold and serious
i am i was death-defying delirious
i am i was so tongue tied

it's becoming a way of life and how
i fail to be it's harder to succeed
we are working harder just to make our name
we're halfway there

i was so cold and serious
i am i was death-defying delirium
i've been down low so long
Track Name: the Departed Grates
the Departed Grates

you know the sound it makes
the baby rattle breaks
why you gotta go and spit in my eye
got one life to live
your fractions got to give
you've got to tell a convincing lie

I know the voice inside your head
coz some nights I swear I hear it too
you leave a trail of bread-crumbs to find me
as for you I'll make you come!
yeah
Even if you tried
the children'll just deny
You are the reason I wrote this fucking song
you know the sound it makes
the church shutters break
I'm feeling like I just been kicked in the eye
Dear john, don't be cold
Purple Girl meets the Green Boy
you could have had me to always keep you warm
please don't be afraid you still got what it takes
even modest people kick it and die.
Track Name: the Daze of our Lives
Puerto Rican Bourbon Chicken
Dorm Aliens in the snow.
Pre- Madonna pasta primavera
lobster bisque-tits on the go

these are the days these are the phases of your life
they will be over soon
these are the moments still-framed in your mind
they will be leaving too

you can't waste it masturbating
talking on your cellular phone
it's Tiny Tim drunk on a whim
speeding away in an NYC Taxicab yea

these are the days these are the nights of your life
they will be leaving you
these are the moments still-framed in your mind
they will be leaving too

Vice and wasting time is complacent
Dancing fingers on the floor
walk a walk a day when I leave you stay
hallucinogenic bore

these are the days these are the phases of your life
they will be over you
these are the moments still-framed in your mind
they will be over soon
they will be leaving too
they will be over too
they will believe
they will believe they will believe in you

these are the days these are the phases of your life
they will be over you
these are the moments still-framed in your mind
they will be leaving too
they will be leaving too
they will be leaving you
they will believe
they will believe they will believe in you
