Track Name: Crooked Teeth
I can read you like an analog clock
Which is to say,
not as well as I'd like to
But I try to

I think I missed the day in school where they taught you not to waste your youth

I guess

Everybody's got a couple crooked teeth
No one knows exactly what they mean
when they say
Every rat in the rat race
In the maze went the wrong way

Everybody's got a couple left feet
No one knows exactly what they mean
When they say
Every cat in the cat tree
Lost a life in a palm tree

Don't hide your left incisor and
Don't let them criticize your crooked teeth

So if hurt spills out of my mouth
Don't give me credit
I'm basically an infant with a bank account

I once even enjoyed Arby's
I'm never comfortable at parties

Everybody's got a couple crooked teeth
No one knows exactly what they mean
When they say
Every bird in the bird bath
With a stone is a blood bath

Everybody's got a couple left feet
No one knows exactly what they mean
When they say
Every mouse in the mousetrap
Thought she'd just found a nice snack

So don't hide your left incisor
And don't let them criticize your crooked teeth
Track Name: Bootstrap
Everyone just sitting in the pig pen
Clawing at the scraps that they can find
Each of them afraid that they will die
But no one really wants to be alive

But no one's keepin anybody down here
Hanging from a bootstrap like a noose
Colorblind and tonedeaf to the culture
We'll criticize whichever birth you choose

Fuck you, better make your life productive
Or market forces put you to your curse
Opiates or alcohol will find you
At least you'll get the drug that you deserve

But no one's keepin anybody down here
Hanging from a bootstrap like a noose
Colorblind and tonedeaf to the culture
We'll criticize whichever birth you choose

don't look down
or you'll get scared
that three bad days
or one bad year
would you put you
in the same damn place
as him
and it's fucking cold
it's fucking cold
how the fuck do you hold?

But no one's keepin anybody down here
Hanging from a bootstrap like a noose
Colorblind and tonedeaf to the culture
We'll criticize whichever birth you choose
