Track Name: Kid Party
Pretty little things in the night time
Pretty little things at dawn
I never knew they would listen
to anything I say
Pretty little things in the evening
Pretty little things in the morn
I've been the Shemp with shades drawn
Since the day you were born

I'm burning up
I'm burning like the sun

Pretty little things in the day time
Pretty little things at dawn
I never thought they'd accost you
Right in my front lawn
Tell me baby, where did he hurt you?
Tell me honey, can't you say?
Tell me baby, where did he touch you?
I know you can't say
Track Name: Dot-Com Teens
Out here at Camp Hero
We're getting further as we're getting nearer
Dot-com teens, they don't sweat it
Let the dead men rise to the surface

Rain down, rain down those arrows
Let the love storm set them straight and narrow
Bagging faggots with daddy's Smith and Wesson
Tell them judges that you were only messing

Dot-com teens, don't lose it
Discover the loose ends
(And you're losing)

The virgin mother is on the cover
Sit back and wonder why we're pathetic lovers
Church is a venue, scripture's a menu
(Just sell them coffee, just sell the coffee)
Track Name: It Came Through Trees
It came through trees
It brought me to my knees begging please
It drips like honey and stings like a bee
It came through trees

It came through trees
It came through trees
It's like everything you wanted that you'll never need
It came through trees
It came through trees
It came through trees
Track Name: Any Number of Teeth
Any number of teeth
Through my head like a wreath
Any number too steep
Comprehension in a bath
Of lukewarm defeat
Descending

Un ta, un tais.
Track Name: Shiver-Whipped
She has nothing besides her face to rely on
She has nobody else's knee to cry on
The world's a chupacabra waiting to strike

She's shiver-whipped, she's shiver-whipped
She's shiver-whipped, she's shiver-whipped

My sweet Babboo

She's a Raggedy Anne in search of an Andy
She's the sour remains of the world's sweetest candy
And when she's ready you'll be running alright
Track Name: In My Pleasure
Iris rot
Day before
And your frame
Darkens my door
That was not what I had hoped for
That was not what I had hoped for
Talisman
On your brow
Heal me then
Hurt me now
That was not what I had hoped for
That was not what I had hoped for

Imbued imposter, oh thy word
Through tear in time, I overheard
A bedtime story, and it goes...

Anodine
