Track Name: Bouncy Ankles
Sometimes you gotta forget your hunger
Sometimes you gotta lose your thirst
For the things you want but can't have
Or the things that will make it worse
And I hope you're doing better than I am
I hope you do bigger and better things
Some words used to read so clearly to me but they just don't anymore
And you wake up in a bedroom you're unhappy in
In a town that no longer protects you
And that noise in your ears keeps ringing and ringing
The world will end any minute do what you gotta
Sometimes I can barely remember
When it was exactly I lost my thirst
In those deep and lonely yesterdays
I made the effort to make it worse
I hope you find a way out
I hope you find some piece of mind
I hope that reflection comes and you like what you find
And you wake up in a bedroom you're unhappy in
In a town that no longer protects you
And that voice in your ears keeps singing and singing
The world will end any minute do what you gotta
And you wake up in a bedroom you're unhappy with
In a town that no longer protects you
When you need the rest like hell needs a burning lake
Will you finally find that bottle won't cure what's keeping you awake?
Track Name: No Substitute For Victory
Show me love with an iron fist!
Puts you to bed with a poison kiss
Sweating blood to repent for my awful sins
Enamored with this hell I am living in
But this is all that I've ever known
Discomfort and poverty have become my home
Drop to my knees without thinking twice
Morbidly excited to be your sacrifice
A pain that feels too real
A pain that everyone feels
All this shit makes no sense despite everything I'm told
A heart like mine goes cold
Thrown into this naked void and expected to call it my home
The wayward child's gone astray
From the anguish of our decay
Beaten by laws that we all obey
Before the end we gotta run away
Because this is all that we've ever known
Drop to our knees without thinking twice
Morbidly excited to be your sacrifice
A pain that feels too real
A pain that everyone feels
All this shit makes no sense despite everything I'm told
A heart like mine goes cold
Thrown into this naked void and expected to call it my home
Boob jobs, HDTVs
There ain't no substitute for victory
Rape and pillage the lands they've seized
There ain't no substitute for victory
Religious hymns and eulogies
There ain't no substitute for victory
Hands up! Police say freeze
There ain't no substitute for victory
(Anyway, I'll call your sadness
Anyway, I'll raise you madness)
