Track Name: My Friend Merky
my friend merky’s in a band
post-hardcore or lo-fi
he said they sound like can but with louder guitars and distortion
I don’t know what that sounds like

who cares anyway?
I’m sure he’s doing okay
I’m sure he’s doing just great

and when his friends come visit
they laugh even though it’s different
we talked him down from the second floor
you can’t pull that shit anymore

my friend merky’s in a band
he’s breaking down in a target parking lot
his girlfriend kicked him out because he quit his job to tour the east coast
could never stand those goddamned dogs
Track Name: Third Wife
stuff my face
with bread
with breasts
with the shoulder of a friend
with the corner of a desk
with communion
with a yes

pretty good at letting people down
a false prophet in a burger king crown
but sometimes I see it different
witch trials with omissions

these things happen all the time
yeah I’m telling you, these things they happen all the time

sit down man
give it a rest

in a cockeyed race car
cutting through on joymar
with all my new best friends
all staring at different dead ends
card carrying confidence man
can ya call his friends and clip his wings?
cop car cash cab confessionals
are making a living off of pipe dreams
Track Name: Redline
sometimes you know I miss you
the hoarse throat
the tissues
but I’m in no position
to raise my voice
to make revisions

I wish we were both 40
domesticated and disappointed
but I’m in no position
to change my mind
to make admissions

short skirt, long shower
she loves the love
the power
date night redline
come on baby - can you drive home this time?
cold stare, heart lapse
come on baby - what the hell was that?
Track Name: Retrograde
wait out the wasted homicidal complacent
smells worse than it looks, looks worse that it tasted, I hate it
spilling your guts to your friends
spilling your guts to the floor
to the waste bin

sometimes success is a slug, son
you can’t fuck your way out of this one

hey
retrograde
retrofit yourself to a better place
fresh new friends, clean clothes
bright blue eyes, black holes
baby hair, loose teeth
thinning hair, false teeth
nobody beautiful loves me

the manic depressives
are all calm and collected
just give them a second
and they’ll leave an impression
