Track Name: Villain
You are a villain you don't know me at all
You are a villain and you ruined my life
You may have had me once but I've got you now
You've been a villain all the time

You are a villain every day
You are a villain every night
You've been a villain your whole life
Why don't you face up and admit it for once

It doesn't have to be to me
that you confess your villany
Go to a therapist or go on TV
public access and tell them the truth
You have to tell someone the truth

You are a villain all the time
You've been a villain all the while
You have the most annoying smile
Why don't you tear up and admit it for once
I just want to see you cry
Track Name: I Will Die
You have eyes like a cow staring out at me
You have a voice like I don't know what inside me
You have eyes like a cow staring out at me
You have a voice like I don't know what inside me

And I will die, I will die
Before I eat a cow with your eyes

You are the moon and the stars around which I orbit
You are the grass, you are the ground, you keep me here
And when you cease to keep me here you won't disappear
When I collapse you'll still remain

And I will die, I will die
Before I eat a cow with your eyes

I would die, I would die
Before I ate a cow with your eyes
Track Name: Difficult Cider
You taught me how to smoke weed, I never learned
You taught me how to smoke cigarettes, it never worked
But you tried all the time
And I wanted to see

'Cause I could see coming out of my mouth, oh
If I could know my breath won't hesitate
Maybe I could write it down for you

If you don't remember me I won't be sad
I'll just try to recall the fucking good times we had
I'll try with all of my might
But I'm having some trouble

'Cause I can see coming out of your mouth, oh
I just know your breath won't hesitate
Maybe I could write it down for you

'Cause I can see coming out of your mouth, oh
I just know your breath won't hesitate
I will always write it down for you

It's always difficult cider, when it
Comes to you I don't know how to get started
I'm always walking into walls

It's always difficult cider, when it
Comes to you I don't know how it got started
I was born to walk into your wall
Track Name: No One's Ever Going to Be Endlessly Alive
I think I can't stand the way I feel
I can smash in all your doors but it's not real
And I know how you feel
I know it's not real

I sort of can't help the way I am
You can hate it all you want but it's the same
And I know it's just how I am
But you know we're not the same

Because I'm not real and that's okay
I'm really calm in my place
Remember you are always tender
And remember it doesn't mean what you think

Because no one's ever going to be endlessly alive

If my palms are the only sensitive parts
I have left I will scrape them on all the doors
Because I know I've got to squeeze it out
The rest of me, I'll use it till it stops

You know I'm not real but that's okay
I'm really calm in my place
Remember you are always tender
And remember it doesn't mean what you think

Because no one's ever going to be endlessly alive

I'm always terminating and transitioning to somewhere

'Cause I sort of can't stand the way I feel
I can smash in all your doors but it's not real
If I know how you feel
'Cause I know it's not real
Track Name: You Took the Words (Summer Version)
I think you're the only one
Who knows I wish I was smart
I'm okay with being dumb and I make up for it
But there are things that I can't do

You know that, I'm sorry
You know me now

You took the words right out of my mouth

I think you're the only one
I could hold on all the time
I can't be your only one though
'Cause there are places I can't go

You know that, I'm sorry
You know me now

You took the words right out of my mouth

There are places I don't go
I know you know, okay?
Track Name: Lying Is Easy, Kissing Is Hard
I want to know where I go, always
I want to know where I go, always
I want to go where I go, always
I want to go when I go, sometimes

In the endless morning with your glasses glowing
I want to stay where you are, always
But I left you in the evening with your city all breaking around you
You will keep going till you can't find yourself, that's how I found you

Your mind contracts with your studies and actions
Builds to explosions like pictures of fractals
I want to stop myself from going, from going
I want to stay and I go
Track Name: You've Always Been Me
One day I'll call you up and I will end up saying to you
The words that everyone eventually ends up wanting to say to you
I'm gonna kill myself and it'll be your fault
You'll have to explain to my mom why my body's all crushed on the asphalt

Sorry or not, I'm damned and I'm doomed
And I wish I'd kissed you in that horrible empty room
But all things considered, I don't feel so bad
I know sorry doesn't matter, I learned that from my dad

And besides I've always been mean inside

I want you to know that it isn't your fault
If I drink Draino or end up sleeping in a nuclear vault
People do and say all these things to you because you believe them
People throw their bullets at you because your chest is always open to receive them

Ready or not, I'm damned and you're doomed
And I still want to kiss you in all your horrible empty rooms
Because I feel such tenderness when I remember you didn't know I'd hurt you
All things considered I can't imagine the feeling isn't worth it

I've always been mean inside
You've always been me, you've always known my insides
Track Name: You Took the Words (Winter Version)
I think you're the only one
Who would ever say I'm smart
But I'm okay with being dumb, I make up for it
But there are things that I can't do

And you know that, I'm sorry
You know me now

You took the words right out of my mouth

I think you're the only one
I could hold on all the time
I can't be your only one though
'Cause there are places I can't go

And you know that, I'm sorry
You know me now

You took the words right out of my mouth

There are places I don't go
I know you know, okay?
Track Name: Dry Break Dust Cover
I'll tear out your guts if that's what you want
The only pain you don't expect
All soft and sweet inside your organs
The only love you can't reflect

When you wake up at first try to pull all your skin on
Maybe you would have made it if you could still see
But all your vision blurs like basketballs
You're just not fast enough for me

I want you dead or alive and I'll find you at the end of life
I want you dead or alive and I'll find you at the end of your life

You fell down the stairs every time that I touched you
You slipped on your laces, you couldn't breathe
I would have tied your shoes if you had asked for it
But you'd never take that much from me

I want you dead or alive and I'll find you at the end of life
I want you dead or alive and I'll find you at the end of your life
I want you dead or alive and I know that that just isn't right
I want you dead or alive with a power I can never drive in you

I'll take your intestines out and I'll hang them
I'll hang them up on the wall for you
And you'll be happy in the old way
Without all those fluids rushing through

The tubes of your heart all over our bedspread
And all of my lungs all over your shoes
I would have bought you new shoes if you asked for them
But that wasn't good enough for you, I'm just not good enough for you

I want you dead or alive and I'll find you at the end of life
I want you dead or alive and I'll find you at the end of your life
I want you dead or alive and I know that that just isn't right
I want you dead or alive with this power I can never drive in you
It'll never rise in you
Track Name: I'm Nervous
I don't say no when I mean yes
I just say no and then what happens I guess is you keep going

All right and I know I can take things really slow
And I'd probably lose my head if I crash into it
And I should be up and moving before everything is lost
But I'm afraid your head's about to have a bullet inside it

I don't say shit I just say fuck
And I have been that way since I was really super young
I get caught on security cameras smoking underground

And I'll get what I deserve if all my shambling footage swerves
And I fall way deep inside the subway tunnel
It could crush me to my life and carry on that wayward night
With my stinking yellow teeth under its clean magnetic wheels

I don't even know when I mean yes
I've been educated and that means I guess that when I'm nervous
I know I earned and I learned it

All right I know that I can be really slow
So it's hard to believe my head could have room for this
But that I never saw this start in the contours of your violent heart
Is something for which I cannot forgive myself
I'll just keep going
