Track Name: rigor mortgage.
as far as i can tell you are still hung up
like an old man with no family on a noose
only waiting to be found by the landlord
when he comes looking for you

i hope that one day
i have enough money
to buy the house
that you died in
i hope that one day
i have enough money
to buy a house
to die in

locked in thirty years with five percent interest
rigor mortgage sets in
i hope im never caught dead in a rented room
man that would be embarrassing

i hope that one day
i have enough money
to buy the house
that you died in
i hope that one day
i have enough money
to buy a house
to die in
Track Name: billboards.
there are billboards on I-85
that are bigger than
the trailer my grandfather lived in
the last ten years of his life

heaven is in the advertising
i know because i saw him in the commercials
all dressed up like jesus' boyfriend
trying to sell me technology
that allows you to have sex with god
Track Name: i get what i want because i ask for it.
i found a dead fox in a puddle
it reminded me of you
bloated and disgusting
and full of itself too

let the inside jokes tell themselves
let them laugh as much as they please
none of this will ever be funny to me

you asked me if i ever wanted
something i couldn't have
but honestly i couldn't remember
anything like that
do i always get what i want
maybe i don't
maybe i do
but some way
in every way
i am so much better than you
Track Name: countertops.
and i hate this city
and i've always hated the beach
and i hate my friends
but damn if i'm not having
a good time hating them

with no words wasted
on the countertops
and no words wasted on me

i hope my internal organs
never see daylight
and that the computer
that let me win at chess
will someday learn how
to clean the kitchen
so i don't have to

with no words wasted
on the countertops
and no words wasted on me
Track Name: why we came here.
i hope you find this annoying
because i'm most attracted to you
when you're annoyed with me
like i came here to be ignored
and you came here to be bored by me

i hope you find this annoying
because i'm most interested in you
when you're annoyed with me
like i came here to be ignored
and you came here to be bored by me
