lyrics

-LYRICS-

I begged the lips to kiss my eyes
To gobble up and shit the prize
I faced the past tense
Relation to the ship inside
The fool who takes the easy ride
And breaks the defense
A girly girl will never lift a finger
In the place of happenstance
Or nothing
The century is crawling now
Its first words were holy cow
And I’m still puffing

Love happens
Life crappens
I smoke a bowl
Forgetting
Not letting me find the hole
Best mind control

I even over advertized myself
Like I mean horny wise
I could catch you
In my web of cruel deceit
I play a trick
On every treat
And I would bet you
Thought about it every night
And tossed and turned
Until your flight
Because I let you
Have the way that you would have
That you would be to be so glad
That I had met you

I’ll find beauty on TV
After you’re gone
Inducing mind vision
Good for my time
Bad for my mind

I have an only child in me
It brought my sister jealousy
An early patter
And friendships won’t go very far
When my pupils always are
The size of Saturn

UI wish my dumb feelings
A super sentimental goodbye
Escaping
Self-shaping
Really fucking hard to cry
The tear ducts are dry

So long
I don’t need you anymore
Farewell
I will show you to the door

Oops, have you seen my baggage anywhere?
