A Perfect Dream

Don’t chase ghosts Don’t get too close Don’t get caught Don’t get spent Don’t get bought Don’t sell out Don’t get bent Don’t fuck your best friend If everything is just the way it should be Why am I still hungry Be Like Water Don’t be shy Don’t shut your eyes Don’t get high Expand your mind Don’t keep in touch Don’t touch yourself Don’t ever wanna be somebody else When everything is bad as it can be Never be angry Be Like Water Must be the answer you want I’m not your slave I’m not the one who burnt you out Fucked you up and put you on Broke you down Ask someone else To be that someone I can’t be that someone Who can be like water Why can’t I be the answer you want

Wrong side up How I like to be In my comfortable highchair of agony And from here Things are looking pretty fucked up Wrong side up Buried in here somewhere is the reason Maybe I don’t care enough to find it Just to appease you would be wrong Just to write another song Forgive this hole that is my heart That’s had enough Wrong side up If you were not would I still be Now inside the ground A victim of this age A little bit of nothing Goes a long way Maybe I’ll find what’s right Now that I’m wrong side up

Virus 04:02
Everyday she wallows in her dream Pacing back and forth With nothing in between The devastated girl has given up The boy has fallen to the fate of luck But tells her with a slight smile It’s just a virus She laid on him And I can’t touch it It’s buried in And it’s all for nothing This web of you Is just a cycle of abuse Since you said it’s fine I might believe Dirty girls are easy to deceive A penny for your thoughts Or just to take your clothes off I’d rather dull the pain Than stand out in the rain To catch the virus That seems to be The undercurrent of my insanity The lowest layer that has been fused Beneath my cycle of abuse It’s just a virus He says to me It’s not quite the prison You make it out to be Too bad you’re dying Too bad but true As is this cycle of you

Alien Boys 03:28
The alien boys are here today Clicking their heels behind me Chatter boy toys They couldn’t find me I’m floating above I wanted to show you The milk of the moon You couldn’t get past my name If there is life in this room I invite it to leave Never come back again They come from the dark They hide right behind the sun In beams of the dead they travel They travel too far To tear me up To break me down To put me into the lion’s mouth To tear me up You broke me down You put me into the lion’s mouth And I want you to know You tore me up You broke me down Alien boy

Smoke 04:33
Everything that I love Turns to smoke It billows out from nothing Laughing at my cries Holding the charred remains Of the last dirty joke As if they know How it died Everyone that I’ve loved Has turned to smoke They come in single file And exit two by two As if they knew What was to come That I’m happier in the rain Than the sun And now every day that has come Has turned to smoke Still I hesitate to ask the great above What I have done As it crashes through my system Creation laughs at one With nothing but All there ever was

Crazy getting silly with a fat old man And his alligator hands so cold Rubbin’ me down with a toothless frown Says he’d give twenty dollars to juke his load Schizophrenic Simon With his crack jaw hacksaw Dirty Motherfucker look Everybody wants some Blood from babies Street cracked daisies Get ‘em at the dollar store Gia is forever All paper clipped together With her Christ magazines And smoke stained teeth Totally high Ready to die Revved up and ready to fly Spit Trap Ghetto
9.
Lioness 02:52
I’d like to get to know you Let’s take off our clothes And get close There And how about I circle you Like a lioness Licking her paws Use your hands Discover me One kiss could lead us to bliss Just one kiss Oh I love it when you go down And I get wet And fall apart You inspire me One kiss could lead us to bliss
10.
In The Red 05:31
I’m kind of in a watercolor wasteland The place you go to bow and pay the toll A never-ending system of abrasions Only there to control The way you suck me up into a nightmare The dirty way you cut me with a smile And I hate to admit How I love when you give it to me In the red Crying out At the edge Looking down Every single minute takes an hour When you’re in the power of the beast There’s hate breeding hatred inside of my head And there’s not that much left to be said In the red Crying out At the edge Looking down When you’ve fallen below All the shit you’ve been fed And you feel like you’re gonna go mad Then you know you have come out alive More than dead
11.
Halfway gone Can’t find the path You’ve fallen off There’s this place in me for you Elements of me I see in twos Me looking back at you And there’s this place in me To light this perfect dream I hear the reverie Please don’t apologize You’ll be immortalized In the weight of this melody In the daze of my perfect dream My Perfect Dream
12.
And the ants go marching on Through the hills they sing their song For the good of the world They carry on But when the winter comes my darlings Where will you go I built a little shelter for your hearts In my backyard Man kills man Man kills god Man kills everything That he can get his hands on Governments are planning Their next bombing masquerade Who will do it first And when they do Who will get paid Man kills man Man kills god Man kills everything That he can get his hands on Perhaps a single word Before the sun begins to rust Are we just shadows and dust

Salvia Path 13:06
Everyone is moving Everyone is floating around Into with confusion Never to be found out again Once I found the reason But lost it in a place I cant find To a world that I don’t like And I’m quick to assume But never to ask Will we ever go back to Salvia Path And it’s cold Where the living don’t go And everyone is moving And everyone is safe In the ground And the scene Is a perfect photograph But we cannot go back to Salvia Path We cannot go back to Salvia Path
