Intro 00:29

prevent the vertigo with less of the most, inside I am a patient with patience. from the side-long hurt that my head is in a straight-jacket and Russell pushes my arm. the bus driver waits for me he can tell I am a city girl with paper cranes (following) (I lost). watch me as I take his letters inside of my pants, this is all that I’d take with me off this flight (I lost) (this flight) I lost the pixel plant (hound dawg) I lost. I lost (In my dreams) I lost. inside my house it was, it was inside my house sounded like a war (like a war) sounded like a war (like a war). vertigo can tear you right, the vertigo won't let me ride. vertigo. take the sun to your arms and make me right.

Heartland 04:24
Heartland getting passed around like chronic. oh, your cooking is good. cause you know the way it is meaning does make the way we are in the phases of the moon and all we do facing us meaning does speak for us. Heartland, it’s clear (it’s clear, it’s clear) we only see moons when we are pining for Heartland, everyone has one Heartland, getting passed around Heartland, everyone has one chronic time to look back onto. Heartland getting passed around like chronic. oh, your cooking is good. ooo, so fine.

Interlude I 00:56

Nero 04:22
there are a few things you should know, Nero, get angry for the right reasons. stop getting up on me, I didn’t kill no body but you, on the other hand, are deranged: you’ve killed your wife and child, Nero, Wise Emperor, come to me, come when it’s night and ghost me out cause I have a shampoo ready for your assisted suicide. you forget – that I know you are dead. don’t get angry for the wrong reasons. you’re not human, you think you know music. how can you know music, Popular Girl? how can you know music, Popular Boy? Nero, you are no hero, you are no Hero. man and wife gather like mice. will I die unmarried (or married a bunch?) cause the middle is so boring - boring, boring, bored of hearing, my middle is so boring, boring, bored of hearing, aged eighteen I sit still, the exponent of hurt innocence and a clam calm and drinking water cupped eyes, O never been so tired (cupped eyes) Nero, you are the only ghost that comes out in the sunshine.

Tugging 03:43
strange to feel young, peace-ly in a pure hold telling a quiver of arousal to turn a lewd comment into a mature encounter. can you tell that I’m waiting and I’m tired? can you tell that I’m waiting (and I'm tired) to be swept into adult sleep? recovering slowly here, recovery slowly being here. I spread my heart all over my body like butter. recovery slow, being here, slow.
7.
Ghostjail 03:17
ghostjail, you’re stuck in the ghostjail. I don’t know how it got so warm in the woods. in the woods is a ghostjail you’re stuck in, in the woods in – ghostjail, you’re stuck in a ghostjail.

Edmonbomb 06:20
I know I said mean things but I I know I said mean things but I I know I said nice things too I know I said mean things but I know I said meaningful things mean – but meaningful – mean-ing-full things. magnify to the time that you’d kill to be dead. Ed-Mon, to the ground Edmonbomb to the ground, can I turn around? Edmonbomb, will you hold me down, can I turn around – can I, can I – can I turn a– ? Edmonbomb, oh-oh O, split lip and distance seeps O, split lip and distance seeps Edmonbomb to the ground, can I turn around? Edmonbomb, will you hold me down, distance seeps and I busted your back Quick, quick – quick trek to the ground (g r o u n d)
