Track Name: Strictly Platonic
You're spillin out your guts to another random stranger desperate for anything to remind you of love / and whos to say where these things should begin or end i think the current arrangement's kinda fucked

Why should we give ourselves to just one person who will prolly end up just breaking our heart / why is a friendship something less meaningful why is physical affection where things fall apart

Oh i know i may never find an answer / but sometimes i think life's about the questions that we asked / oh i may be a natural disaster / But once in great while i can not help but fall too fast

Crushes well i've had a few and i assure they all hurt but never quite as much as tryin to asleep alone / and everytime that i meet another person a fear strikes my heart could now could this be the one

Whos gonna tear you up to little pieces and scatter your remains underneath the waxing moon / or just a friend who you'll never really know victim of what can wrong fallin far too soon

Oh i know i may never find an answer / but sometimes i think life's about the questions that we asked / oh i may be a natural disaster / But once in great while i can not help but fall too fast
Track Name: Twin Black Holes (not a queen but kaleesi)
With a wit as sharp as a blade / and a look on point to match / cut into me and left my heart flayed / full of new schemes to hatch

And oh you make such a pretty cute girl / and a cute pretty boy i see / not another like you in the world /not a queen but khaleesi

What if i tried to write a song for you / would you mind a mixed a metaphor or two / we’re like the stars who burned too bright / twin black holes devouring the night

Ghost stories sound much better at night / especially with you next to me / and when the clouds shot out their lights / we fell fast asleep

Do you remember when your dad got me drunk/ and we saw my favorite band? / and oh i know this summer kinda sucks / but fuck if that wasnt rad

What if i tried to write a song for you / would you mind a mixed a metaphor or two / we’re like the stars who burned too bright / twin black holes devouring the night
Track Name: Cruel As Any Villain (for cassie)
Seasons come and seasons go / no one ever really knows / why some are good and some are bad / but summer came as cruel as any villain

Time it passes faster since / those days when we were little kids/ innocence and ignorance / indifferent to anything that wasn’t thrillin

hook:

Someday i know ill see you then
we’ll talk about our way back when
You’ll tell me about your new dog and
Ill ask about your new boyfriend
You’ll say he’s cool but thats not as important as it used to be
You’ll say that school is almost just an absent memory
Tell me that your chasing dreams you had when we first met
Living your life for once without an ounce of regret

Verse 2
So hold on to your heavy heart / i know things tend to fall apart / but (some)centers hold and centers stay / and center stage is where you’ll make a killin

And this too like all things must pass / our sorrow too wont ever last / sun will rise and the sun will set / and sometimes our best tears just come out spillin
Track Name: Self-Destruction Manifestos
Wake up to the smell of blood and it's tinny taste lingering on my tongue
Oh my stars where have I been and what have I become
Celebrate your sadness with another stupid song
Anticipate the every awful thing that ever could go wrong

Would you follow your heart to the ends of the earth
And be content to watch it die
Is everyone you've ever loved
Just a reason to hate goodbyes
I know summer ain't the same
Without a sweetheart by your side
But fuck if I know where they're at
I'm just lucky to be alive

While everyone left looking for a reason to get out of bed
You're fuckin around flirting with every little demon left in your head
Self destruction manifestos man I've made a few in my time
Introduction to the world of the bittersweet and sublime

Would you follow your heart to the ends of the earth
And be content to watch it die
Is everyone you've ever loved
Just a reason to hate goodbyes
I know summer ain't the same
Without a sweetheart by your side
But fuck if I know where they're at
I'm just lucky to be alive
Track Name: In A Family Way (queer as in fuck you)
hold on to your heavy heart
this time i think we'll make it through
one word before we start
lets try our best to make it new

go forth and gather youself up
take your love and give it all away
with any luck it will find its way to you again
on a some dark and cold and lonely and fateful day

unsaid as the thought thats
you kept to your self
unread like the books
left gathering dust up on your shelf

tell yourself it will be ok
fragile as a fabrige
bluer than the epponymous jay
while clouds above such an ominous gray
as elegant as a tv tray
or a thesis to a punk rock essay
a pigeon to their bird of prey
the sea gulls screaming at the bay
all the prophets whove been lead astray
or pauses left in a family way
the message of hope we could not convey
just dissapointment without delay
all the fears you could not allay
all the tears you would wipe away
so save em up for a rainy day
like those three little words that you'd never say
your better angels were on display
replete with childish naivete
you were the costs i could not defray
or the hell that we would one day pay
your best attempts not to betray
those secrets held in dossiers
you were the loner to my jfk
now someone call the cia
the lizard people to my greys
mysterious and vast as the milky way
or the consequences we never weigh
those games we tried hard not to play
all the rules that we would disobey
much to our mothers dismay
oblivious as your fathers toupee
and the welcomes that we'd overstay
take me to the sweet soiree
let your love be my attache
we can talk it out or just hit the hay
pray for a tomorrow better than today
as miserable as the 17th of may
or the leftovers we set out for the stray
so send out a communique
queer as in fuck you, im them and they
anachronistic as bombay
corpses cought in eternal ballet
while the ladders of our DNA
lie twisted up in acidic array
our passions we found oh so passe
slaves to all our social mores
the day we die and turn back to clay
left eponential in our decay
all the gods to whom we'd never pray
or the dragons that we'd never slay

will one day come and make everything alright
Track Name: Thin Izzy (cassius mega mix)
I heard your name last week at a party somewhere out there on the east side of town
I was like yeah I know that one and you can bet your ass that one don't fuck around
They said your boy had been stepping out you had had enough of his shit and you were through
And I just stared at your name on my phone thinking I should write I should call I should really talk to you

CHORUS
But baby (baby) Baby (baby)
Don't expect that boy to be back again
Just call my name (call my name)
I'll come runnin back to you just as fast as I can
Loneliness (loneliness)
Is a jail that's so fucking hard to break
Just call my name (call my name)
We can be your your greatest little mistake


I think it's been about a year since I've your face without the aid of a computer screen
I take what I can get but when they say absence makes the heart grow fonder I've no fucking
clue what they mean
Because fondness is the furthest you could possibly get from the feelings you foster for former friends
I'm not sure I'll find a more fitting line about you I just don't where to start or where to end
