Track Name: Gone
since you've been gone i've been smiling alone
all the junkies on my block look so healthy
what? not again now i'm losing a friend
when the competition stops

and i'm not afraid cause i know what you'll say
and i can't pretend to care how it paints me
since you've been gone i've been wandering home
like the junkies on my block
Track Name: Sleep
you make a straight admission
one that brings me down
i let the repetition
drag this feeling out

i'm gonna bleed that shit so dry you'll begin to sweat
(don't wanna sleep yet i don't wanna sleep yet)
to break the silence in the sheets, yes i know you're there
(don't wanna sleep yet i don't wanna sleep yet)
i'm lashing out beyond my reach

need an hour of darkness
institution meal
in a sweat apartment
only this feels real

i'm gonna blow that shit so high like a billion bombs
(don't wanna sleep yet i don't wanna sleep yet)
so you can stalk my sleep tonight yes i knew you'd call
(don't wanna sleep yet i don't wanna sleep yet)
yeah you can have my dreams tonight
you can have my dreams tonight

you can have my sleep tonight
Track Name: Trust
he don't have what you want
but i'm still a bit pissed off
and it's got me pretty low today
let's take a look at me
so far from interesting
i'm a broke with nothing to give you

frustrating in the least
bent backward on my knees
and you need a little comfort now
and i believe it's all my fault
what more could i do wrong?
maybe i just should have died for you

i don't trust anyone
Track Name: Real Cruel Bastard
OD on daydreams i'm stuck between the sheets
with xanax in your teeth it's a permanent halloween

and i'm sure it isn't good but i'm a real cruel bastard
and i'll tell you how you should cause i'm a real cruel bastard

commit a few crimes in your name instead of mine
and speak sweetly outside, you're friendly but never kind

and i'm sure it isn't right but i'm a real cruel bastard
and i'll tell you what you like cause i'm a real cruel bastard
and i know it's not right but i'm a real cruel bastard
i'm sure it's not right but i'm a real cruel bastard
Track Name: Plastic Jesus
plastic jesus christ in the bedroom
who's the sorry one you caught?
for 3 hots and a cot when you come to
bite the middle finger off anyone

anyone
any son
anyone

i'm destroyer looking right at you
lose my temper anytime
for 3 hits and a twitch when i want to
who's sad sorry can i make mine? anyone

anyone
any son
anyone
Track Name: Retreat
the thing that brings me down
i can't believe it's coming true
i think i've said all i can do
i think i've done all i want to
retreat

to the cafeteria room
the losers in the back make plans
the best of us just play pretend
the least of us don't give a damn
that's me

when play pretend don't bring me joy
and give a damn don't bring me joy
i'm fucked
Track Name: Back
we shared a smoke in the parking lot
but i wasn't good for any of it
made up my mind but after an hour
i wasn't sure bout any of it
you saw me go wander on home
and then talked some shit behind my back

the feeling was bad
i froze like a baby while you had her way
the junkies look good
all dressed up in white but their teeth are stained
i made it my fault
i felt like a kid laying half awake
