Track Name: strangelove
you wore your seahorse tie today
over your pink shirt with the gold cufflinks and your signet ring
untroubled by contemporary notions of masculinity
i love you
you are the detergent your wife uses to wash your shirts
full of bullshit metaphors
that's why you like me
that's why you watch me and worry
kind of like my dad how freudian is that
i'm sure you could tell me
surrogate therapist perpetually impressed
with my downfall tell me i'm pretty
flash me your sharp teeth grown man
no plans
classroom
touch you
and you don't move
and you don't move
classroom
touch you
and you don't move
and you don't move
Track Name: mothbit
if i were anything else it would be a moth
they're small and delicate as dust
and nobody wants to touch them
cos they're kind of weird to look at
they have hair and short legs
eyes too big for their heads
though they can fly and i can't
they can't feel pain
moths are great
they don't get depressed
just lay little moth eggs
and build little moth nests
cool
mothra can fly to space
fight godzilla destroy tokyo
and shit like that
while i go to school or take a bath
moths
think about it
Track Name: talking to joejoe (frankie cosmos cover)
you are dead
can't pat your head
they took you away in a cardboard box
doesn't stop me from talking to you
i am dead
nothing compares to being young
and i feel old and undone
doesn't stop me from talking to you
cos i'll talk and i'll talk and i'll talk till i'm really dead
and we talked and talked and we talked and you never said
a thing cos you were a dog a dog a dog
and i am a human
and i am a dog a dog a dog and
you are a human
you are dead
can't pat your head
they took you away in a cardboard box
doesn't stop me from talking to you
Track Name: trip fontaine
i've got a crush on you
you're kind of cool
i never talk to you when i
see you round at school
and you don't mind
and i don't mind
your friends would laugh at me and i'm
probably not your type
but i like you
but i like you
you always part your hair on the same side
you're like that guy from that tv show that i like
it's not real life
it's not real life
my friends would laugh at me and you're
not really my type
but i like you
but i like you
but i like you
but i like you
Track Name: skin
my best friend
has sharp teeth
sometimes i think he wants to bite me
pretty boy from nowhere
bad taste in music and good hair
he hates things that i like
the boys i go out with
and x files
but overall he's pretty great
got me a twin peaks poster
on my birthday
Track Name: stigmata
i would love to see you tonight
from my window silhouette in the glow
of your millennial neon light
i would like for my hands to bleed
i'm a child of god beyond lighting candles
and wearing my rosary beads
i would love to touch your hair
beat you up a little and write your name
on my underwear
which my mom still washes for me
oh what would you make of that charlie
i watch you take your shirt off in the kitchen and
oh how you bore me
i am canonised
i am deified
i am the gospel truth
i am more than you
Track Name: i love how you love me (bobby vinton cover)
i love how your eyes close
whenever you kiss me
and when i'm away from you
i love how you miss me
i love the way you always treat me
heavenly
but darling most of all
i love how you love me
i love how your heart beats
whenever i hold you
i love how you think of me
without being told to
i love the way your touch is always
tenderly
but darling most of all
i love how you love me
