Track Name: don't hurt
hang me in the sky
somewhere perfect
i wanna feel that i deserve it
or hold me to the ground
'cause i'm feelin' evil
feeling so aimlessly lethal
'cause everything i do
feels like i've done it
feels like i've already done it

do this to death
do me to death too

now everything i say
feels like i've said it
feels like i've already said it

fill me with shit
watch me vanish

please don't hurt me
just 'cause you're hurtin'
i wanna hurt when i deserve it
hang me in the sky
somewhere perfect
somewhere worthlessly perfect
Track Name: you can stay
i was a terrified child now i'm all ticks and complex
even afraid to speak
i found a big, dark crypt back in '95 and ain't left yet
you want a place to sleep?
well come on

you can stay with me
deep in my deep, dark crypt
you can stay with me

well keep clear of the locals and the buzzards and dragnets
and you never hearda me
bring back a gutted-out hog and a bottle of girl sweat
i'll letcha stay the week
well come on

you can stay with me
Track Name: own me
suit crashed my school today
with brochures and righteous claims
told us to write down our names
said honor might surely come
said we'd be smiled upon
my friend signed up and they snatched and run
with him

'cause nobody ever loved us
nobody ever wanted us
but everybody wanted to own us

took a job sellin' plastic boats
twice priced and halfway broke
i was always on the prowl for daft white folk
sold out my stash six times
a thousand duckets made and ten was mine
bought some medicine and quickly resigned

'cause nobody ever loved me
nobody ever wanted me
but everybody wanted to own me

beat drums for an oldish man
with good teeth and flattish abs
said my rhythm took 'im back to nights long past
said he could pay in gold
if he could take me home
he made it so hard to say no

'cause nobody ever loved me
nobody ever wanted me
but everybody wanted to own me

strong sugar done messed me up
i vibrate and spin and such
but don't try to kick out my crutch
'cause i've found a balance now
i eat less and sleep above ground
make noises constant and loud

you're gonna hear me comin'
you're gonna hear me screamin' out
"what the fuck have i done here?
what the hell do i do now?
'cause nobody ever loved me
nobody ever wanted me
but everybody wanted to own me"
Track Name: robbed!
kicked from some hopeless pit
when i burned off all of my skin
they wheeled in my replacement
indeed, you could say
i got robbed by a robot
i had the job he's got
but he does better
he does it free
and he don't give a damn for me
no
and neither do the c-e-no
neither do the c-no-no
neither do the c-e-o

i gave it to yuh
gave it to yuh
now give somethin' back to me

i've since spent some years locked inside
self-medicating to feel right
got married unprepared
indeed, you could say
i got screwed by my husband
and now i can't trust him
but he sleeps in my arms every other night
with his hand 'round my neck squeezed so tight
when he sleeps he dreams of others
so he sneaks out with another
under rich bitches' covers
and lets fly

i gave it to him
gave it to yuh
now give somethin' back to me

i'm a pig filled with shit
you hired some prick to take it
feed it back to me
indeed, you could say
i'll open wide again
i'm all out of options

i gave it to yuh
gave it to yuh
now give somethin' back to me
Track Name: reprise
[instrumental]
Track Name: what i've done
i once was drunk a lot
i moved in with the cops
and i just slept and thought
on some cold, even ground
holdin' up years of weight
my fragile muscles ached
and i just watched 'em break
and i went mmmmm mmmmm

now i wanna know
why i never know
what i've done
when it's done

i once needed a god
found out there ain't no god
so i became the god
ruled over almost no thing
and still i'd snap so quick
old vices made me sick
i'd love weak-willed women
and halfway through i'd just quit

now i wanna know
why i never know
what i've done
when it's done

i have no obvious worth
work sleep wake and work
hurt speak hate and hurt
i laid myself down to die
my baby pulled me close
said daddy let it go
i hear your very soul
and it goes aahhh oohhh
