Track Name: killer whale
killer whale can you
smile on cue
everybody’s here
just to look at you
killer whale score your
plastic skin
all your friends are here just
wanting to get in
killer whale only
concrete lasts
you’re a sight to see
behind your safety glass
killer whale i would
visit every day
if only your fake plastic eye
would tell me you’re okay
Track Name: emergency room blues
we slept in your mom’s bed
you washed the sheets till your hands bled
try to feel me up in your bedroom
in this house with everybody i love and you
smoke outside and talk to george
call 999 while you try to break down the door
i’d do it all and more for you
roll your eyes like you never wanted me to
i left you with nine beds all on your own
and you never knew cos i never told
but i saw the note on your phone
that read “i’m really just scared of being alone”
Track Name: sharp teeth
you say it’s so hard
to feel empathy
when you want to die
and you say that you’re so scarred
by your 19 years
that you want to die
but it’s not real
and i can’t feel
how you want me to
about you
you’re not right
most of the time
and not everything’s
about you

you say that i’m so wrong
and talk over me
when i try to speak
you think you’re so far beyond
all the points i’d make
if you’d let me
i’m as smart as you
i have opinions too
and just cos you’re mad at me
doesn’t make yours true
it must feel like shit
but i’m bored of it
and i won’t enable you
like the others do

you say nothing at all
cos i’m not enough
to absolve your wrongs
you blow everything you have
on 3 rolled notes and
another gram
and i miss you
but i lost you
a while ago
and i can’t excuse
the way you were
the charcoal blur
and i’m better off
but it still hurts
Track Name: polar bear
in your room i’m
alone with you
and i can’t leave
you’re not making any sense
and you don’t notice
when your nose starts to bleed
overshare
polar bear
put your hand where i don’t want it to be
break the lock
nervous shock
in the morning pin it all on me
in your room they’re
wiring you
to their machines
and everybody’s scared
and everybody’s got
their eyes on me
solar flare
polar bear
and you’re blinded by the powder you breathe
hang around
casey sound
from the window we’re all watching you leave
breaker ship
fatal trip
to the darkest southern point of reprieve
when you’re home
stand alone
at the doorway and you’re watching me sleep
when you’re home
stand alone
at the doorway and you’re watching me sleep
Track Name: wasp
yellow jacket
shrug it on
and it sure fits
effortless
uninterested
what a cool kid
what a cool kid
don’t do anything
don’t love anything
what’s the point in
anything
wait around
for your ending
don’t do anything
don’t love anything
what’s the point in
anything
wait around
for your ending
Track Name: niche crowd
so we trashed your house
so we left all our cigarettes in your front yard
so we deserve what we get from your mother
when we see her
which is never
she’s not around
so we let you down
so you work it all out in your head till you make sense
so you’re reacquainted with abandonment
and it’s all my fault somehow
what a very niche crowd
what a very niche crowd
so you fuck your friends in every sense
so you hurt your hands in self defence
so it’s not a good night till your nose bleeds
so it’s not a good time till you’re in A&E
so you blame me for the broken lock
so you blame me for the nervous shock
so you blame me for the ECG
whatever it is just pin it all on me
what a very niche crowd
what a very niche crowd
what a very niche crowd
what a very niche crowd
Track Name: cumulonimbus
i like everything about you
i like everything about you
i like everything about you
i like everything about you
