Track Name: It's Sunday I'm Bleeding
HOT OUTSIDE
COLD INSIDE
MY BED LOOKS SAD
MY PLANT GETS MAD

IT’S SUNDAY I’M BLEEDING

THE DANCING BRUISE
IS LOOKING FOR CLUES
THE CEILING LOOKS DARK
A QUESTION MARK

IT’S SUNDAY I’M BLEEDING

I WOKE UP IN A DREAM
I COULDN’T EVEN SCREAM
SILENT REGIME
IT’S SUNDAY I’M BLEEDING

THE SOFA IS A SWAMP
IT’S DEEP & WARM
A BONELESS WORD
IS SUCKING MY SOUL

IT’S SUNDAY I’M BLEEDING

I WOKE UP IN A DREAM
I COULDN’T EVEN SCREAM
SILENT REGIME
IT’S SUNDAY I’M BLEEDING
Track Name: Sad Erection
IT WAS TIME HE NEEDED
A VACATION
HE HAD ENOUGH OF
HIS SOUL’S EXCAVATION
HE KINDA FELT SOMETHING
STIRRING, A VIBRATION
AND HE SENSED A POP-UP
RESURRECTION

I ALWAYS LIKED YOU
NEVER REALLY LOVED YOU
I PUT MY HANDS AROUND
YOUR SAD ERECTION
I ALWAYS LOVED YOU
NEVER REALLY LIKED YOU
I PUT MY ARMS AROUND
YOUR SAD ERECTION

SAD ERECTION

HE THOUGHT THEY HAD BETWEEN THEM
SOME AFFECTION
A BUSHY PATH TO A SECRET
DESTINATION
A SILLY THING CLOSE TO PERFECTION
A FUNNY THING BEYOND PERCEPTION

I ALWAYS LIKED YOU
NEVER REALLY LOVED YOU
I PUT MY HANDS AROUND
YOUR SAD ERECTION
I ALWAYS LOVED YOU
NEVER REALLY LIKED YOU
I PUT MY ARMS AROUND
YOUR SAD ERECTION

SAD ERECTION

I ALWAYS LIKED YOU
NEVER REALLY LOVED YOU
I PUT MY HANDS AROUND
YOUR SAD ERECTION
I ALWAYS LOVED YOU
NEVER REALLY LIKED YOU
I PUT MY ARMS AROUND
YOUR SAD ERECTION

SAD ERECTION
Track Name: Cut
CUT MY FINGER TASTE MY BLOOD
I’M HALF A MAN
SQUEEZE MY BODY PULL MY TONGUE
LET ME BE YOUR SON

CUT MY THROAT HEAR THE NOISE
OF A FALLING VOICE
KISS MY EAR AND SMELL THE FEAR
JUST LICK MY TEAR

AGAIN & AGAIN & AGAIN
I’LL NEVER KISS YOU AGAIN

YOU ARE MY GIRL
I WANT YOU IN MY CAR
I WANT TO SEE YOU, FRIEND
YOU’LL NEVER WALK ALONE
YOU’LL NEVER LIE AGAIN
I’LL SEE YOU ON THE CORNER
YOU ARE MY CURE TONIGHT
I WANT TO SEE YOU SOON

CUT MY FINGER TASTE MY BLOOD
I’M HALF A MAN
SQUEEZE MY BODY PULL MY TONGUE
LET ME BE YOUR SON

AGAIN & AGAIN & AGAIN
I’LL NEVER KISS YOU AGAIN

I AM NOT THE GIRL
YOU’D WISH TO MEET
YOU ARE NOT THE BOY
I DREAMT OF LAST WEEK
SOMETHING MAGIC HAPPENS
WHEN WE’RE DRUNK AS FUCK
TWO SPOOKY MAGNETS
BARKING IN THE DARK

CUT MY NIPPLE SCRATCH MY HEART
DELETE MY PAST
THROUGH YOUR DRAWERS I WILL
EXPLORE
I WANT MORE & MORE

AGAIN & AGAIN & AGAIN & AGAIN
Track Name: Half Kiss Half Pain
ALONE IN YOUR BEDROOM
AMATEUR PORN
FRAGMENTS, IMPRESSIONS
SALTY POP CORN
CLUMSY MASTURBATION
THEN A HOT DOG
WAITING FOR THE SUNRISE
PRINCESS AND THE FROG

PA-PA-PA-PA-PA-PA-PA

HALF KISS HALF PAIN

STARING AT THE DETAILS
WRITHING ON THE FLOOR
HATING ALL THE MESSAGES
KNOCKING ON YOUR DOOR
DIVE INTO YOUR PASTA
EATING LIKE A WHORE
EVERYONE IS ASKING YOU
TO TRY A LITTLE MORE

PA-PA-PA-PA-PA-PA-PA

HALF KISS HALF PAIN
Track Name: The Great Eastern
I WISH I HAD A PLEASANT STORY TO TELL
SORRY IT ’S THE ONLY ONE I ’VE GOT
WAITING FOR THE DRIFTING SHIP OF LOVE
IN A VELVET CAGE HIGH UPON A ROCK

SHE WALKS ALONE, SHE HAS NO NAME,
SHE’S FREEZING
SHE’S LYING DOWN, SHE LICKS HER TOE,
SHE’S BLEEDING
SHE WALKS ALONE, SHE HAS NO NAME,
SHE’S FREEZING
WHEN SILENCE COMES, IT ’S GREY,
IT SMELLS LIKE KILLING

LOVE IT AND TRUST IT RESPECT IT AND HIDE IT I SAID
THE WORLD LOOKS LIKE A FRAGILE DOUBLE BED
HATE AND LUST DIVIDE US FROM THE DEAD
BODIES AND FEELINGS AND FAILURES MAKE MY NEST
Track Name: Could You?
WHAT ARE YOU THINKING OF?
WHAT ARE YOU THINKING NOW?
COULD YOU PLEASE TELL ME?

WHAT ARE YOU DREAMING OF?
WHAT ARE YOU DREAMING NOW?
COULD YOU PLEASE TELL ME?
Track Name: La Jalousie
BEHIND THE TREES
A NARROW PATH
LEADS FROM THE SEA
A GOLDEN BATH

SHE CAN’T ACHIEVE
WHAT SHE DREAMS
SHE’S FIXING CRACKS WITH LIES
NO, I T ’S NOT WHAT IT SEEMS
NORMALITY IN DISGUISE

SHE DOESN’T DARE,
SO WARY OF DESPAIR
SHE DOESN’T RAIL,
FRAMED IN A SILENT SQUARE

SHE CAN’T STOP BEING IN LOVE

JALOUSIE
LA-LA-LA-LA JALOUSIE

BEHIND THE WALL
SOME DIRTY TALK
IF HIS EYES COULD WALK
THROUGH THE BALCONY DOORS

HE CAN’T ACHIEVE
WHAT HE DREAMS
HE’S FILLING GAPS WITH LIES
NO, I T ’S NOT WHAT IT SEEMS
REALITY IN DISGUISE

HE DOESN’T DARE,
HE’S WARY OF DESPAIR
HE DOESN’T SWEAR,
FRAMED IN A SILENT SQUARE
HE CAN’T STOP BEING IN LOVE

JALOUSIE
LA-LA-LA-LA JALOUSIE

THEY WOULDN’T DARE,
SO WARY OF DESPAIR
THE FEAR THEY SHARE,
FRAMED IN A SILENT SQUARE

THEY CAN’T STOP BEING IN LOVE
Track Name: Blue
EACH NIGHT A SNAIL
BENEATH YOUR BED
COLLECTS THE WISHES
FALLEN FROM YOUR HEAD
A SLIMY CREATURE
THAT LICKS YOUR BREAD
IT’S A BEGINNING
IT’S NOT THE END

AND EVERY TIME, YEAH, EVERY TIME
YOU’RE STANDING ON THE QUEUE
PRETEND YOU’RE HAPPY INSTEAD
OF FEELING REALLY BLUE
I LOVE YOU

UNFINISHED AND OPEN
YOUR BODY’S FROZEN
KEEP THINGS UNSPOKEN
KEEP THINGS HALF BROKEN
YOUR BELLY’S AN OCEAN
COVERED IN LOTION
THE FUTURE’S CHOSEN
DOWN IN YOUR COFFIN

AND EVERY TIME, YEAH, EVERY TIME
YOU’RE STANDING ON THE QUEUE
PRETEND YOU’RE HAPPY INSTEAD
OF FEELING REALLY BLUE
I LOVE YOU

YOUR LIQUID KISS

YOUR LIQUID PERFUMED KISS
DISTORTED KISS
A REALLY TWISTED KISS
REALITY WITH A TWIST

AND EVERY TIME, YEAH, EVERY TIME
YOU’RE STANDING ON THE QUEUE
PRETEND YOU’RE HAPPY INSTEAD
OF FEELING REALLY BLUE
I LOVE YOU
Track Name: So Sweet
SHE WORE HER SMILE
HER OBSCENE EXILE
LOOKING SO FRAGILE
AN ISLAMIC TILE

I KNOW I KNOW I KNOW I KNOW

I KNOW SHE’S TRYING TO LOOK
SO SWEET
TO EVERYONE WHO’S ON HER LIST
SHE LOVES TO HAVE YOU ON
HER KNEES
THE ONLY WAY THAT SHE GETS PLEASED

SO SWEET

SHE CAN’T DECIDE
WHAT’S WRONG WHAT’S RIGHT
LOOKING SO DIVINE
GUILTY AND DISGUISED

I KNOW I KNOW I KNOW I KNOW

I KNOW SHE'S TRYING TO LOOK
SO SWEET
TO EVERYONE WHO’S ON HER LIST
SHE LOVES TO HAVE YOU ON
HER KNEES
THE ONLY WAY THAT SHE GETS PLEASED

SO SWEET
Track Name: River. Drool. Ear. Rope.
I HAVE A SECRET IN MY POCKET FOR YOU
IT’S BEEN GROWING UP FOR A MONTH OR TWO
I HAVE AN INSULT ON MY TONGUE FOR YOU
IT’S BEEN GROWING UP FOR AN HOUR OR TWO

DOWN BY THE RIVER MY LOVE

TELLING TALES FANTASTIC WORLDS
AVOIDING THE WEIGHT OF SIMPLE WORDS
FEEDING YOUR EAR WITH DROOL AND REWARDS
BONDING AN AFTERNOON WITH PERFUMED ROPES

DOWN BY THE RIVER MY LOVE
