Track Name: Nested
Stay there
I want to see
You at your worst

It's not so bad
I just think you need a day

To rest
Get nested with yourself
Oh no
It's not much better
As someone else

So stay right there
I'll bring you what you need
I swear, you'll see
Now get back on your feet
Track Name: Victorville
Have you thought this out?
Will this be the one that does you in?
I bet it hurts
I made it worse
I know I'm prone
But I'm not alone

Let me back inside
Every single one is after you
You blame a curse
You've had it worse
You think I'm bold

But I'm not a saint
I'm not a rogue
I'm too afraid to leave my own home
I don't feel safe
I don't feel right
From the things that go bump in the night

I'm not alone
Track Name: Crooked Knee
When you bit into me
I felt your claws
And your teeth
I hope there’s not something left
Flowing through
My bloodstream
You drink it down
I spit it out
Compress your lungs and get it loud
I feed your belt through the loops
You stand up straight and I sleep ‘til noon

I know that it’s useful
And I know it’s the best
But I would rather rest

When you bit into me
My lips went on a killing spree
Breaking backs and molding minds
But getting answers half the time
Crooked knee and open mouth
I feel my way down further south
The bitter bite of lemonade
You take the bed and I’ll take couch

I know that it’s useful
And I know it’s the best
But I would rather rest
Track Name: Caribou Lou
Asleep for days
How can I prevent this slow decay?
Should I wait
And let it eat away
Do I owe myself another day anyway?

Was it the light?

Think of the dead
That wait in your bed
Well you know what's been said
That bleeding hearts stay bled

What a waste!
A timely disgrace!
As I wait for my own
Yes, as I wait for my own

Was it the light?
