Track Name: Mormon Recovery Program
crossed the bridge
to kill a six-pack in the cold
dark and wet
sweet heart, better come close
bright green eyes shone
as the flames rose up
you can't go home again
darling
Track Name: Legs
you haven't got a leg to stand on
you're crawling on your hands and your waist
i admire your perseverance
but its already too late
i tried so hard to ignore your cries
tried so hard not to roll my eyes
what's that you got in your belly?
is that a little liar to be?

it seems pretty harsh, it seems pretty cruel
but that's just how it is
you are pretty quick to turn your back on your friends

let's see how far your legs will go
before they break
let's see how far your legs will go
before they break
Track Name: Fuck Peter Hook
well we all know your history
well we all know what you've been through
yeah we all got dead friends too
but the difference is we don't try
to make money off of them

well your younger self called
not knowing what to do
he was crying his eyes out
so disappointed in you
said he's killing himself
doesn't doesn't know what to do
he said he's killing himself
before he turns into you
Track Name: Cluttered
packed too full of junk that i don't need
main arteries blocked and i cannot proceed
a padded room i hear will suit me best
my cluttered mind will never let me rest
never let me rest

tossing and turning and tossing and turning all night long
into the deep blue dawn
something tells me its day now

like the water backed up in your throat
like the words of the victim you choked
a padded room i hear will suit me best
my cluttered mind will never let me rest
never let me rest

tossing and turning and tossing and turning all night long
into the deep blue dawn
something tells me its going to be a long day
Track Name: Ribs
you bad bad thing
oh you bad bad thing

room is thick with cigarette smoke
dense as a sponge, totally soaked
loudly they all scream and shout
"you shouldn't even talk about it"
but i'm so bad when it comes to speech
she probably thinks i am missing my teeth
but i think i am pretty clear,
i think we should get out of here

please let me count your ribs
i like the cut of your jib
oh i know you'd be bad to me
its okay, i will never learn
cease your ongoing concern
oh you bad bad bad bad thing

you bad bad thing
oh you bad bad thing

future generations please take note
we were barely breathing and totally soaked
i made you scream i made you shout
i did well, i have no doubt
bad at speech but not at this
it will pay off, it is worth the risk
we'll end up battered and bruised
in the end we will both get used

please let me count your ribs
i like the cut of your jib
oh i know you'd be bad to me
its okay, i will never learn
cease your ongoing concern
oh you bad bad bad bad thing
Track Name: A Million Dead Flowers
don't go out side, don't play in the fields
we raided the gardens and all the store
we'll never surrender never yield
tell your girl that you don't love her no more

we dug them up and dug them out
watching while they withered down
i have some good news
love is dead and so are you
all the flowers are dead, so are you

we met one night soon after that
i was already kicking myself
already surrendered too late to go back
no use in screaming for help

we dug them up and dug them out
watching while they withered down
i have some good news
love is dead and so are you
all the flowers are dead, so are you
Track Name: The Black Hand
acting reckless thinking that you are safe
you're not invincible you're bound to break
baby take caution its the only way
'cause the thing cloaked will come someday

i see the black hand coming for you
i know someday it will come for me too

panic attack thinking of those thoughts
choke on my word and my heart stops
nothing can put my mind at ease
i don't want to leave baby, pretty please

i see the black hand coming for you
i know someday it will come for me too
i see the black hand coming for you
i know someday it will come for me too
