Track Name: List of municipal grievances
You know I love you but you’re just no good
You make me love you better than I should
You know I love you but you ain’t no good
You know I love you but you ain’t no good
You suck at summer, gotta iceberg tongue
You got no money and your winter’s long
You know I love you but you ain’t no good
You know I love you but you ain’t no good to me
All your houses are all just full of shit
And all your bosses don’t know when to quit
You know I love you but you ain’t no good
You know I love you but you ain’t no good
Oh you were callin’ me when I was on the run
All of your friends are here and they be havin’ fun
But now I’m here and the rain has just begun
You gotta summer but the sun is gone
You gotta summer but the sun is gone
Believe me baby I know when I’m wrong
You know I love you but you ain’t no good
You know I love you but you ain’t no good
The spring is poison and the days ain’t dry
Ain’t got no music that won’t me cry
Oh you know I love you but you ain’t no good
You know i love you but ain’t no good
There ain’t no morning that ain’t full of rain
There ain’t no news that never gives me pain
Oh you know I love you but you ain’t no good
You know i love you but ain’t no good
Track Name: A brand new kind of truth (dictator waltz 1)
I just found a brand new kind of truth
One where things I say will not burden you
And when you find questions begin to rise
Don’t you say a word just look in my eyes
Noooowwww think through every word
Noooowwww is that what you heard?
Noooowwww here’s your reason why
Noooowwww there’s your alibi

Walking outside don’t you be afraid
That man following is a friend you made
Always he’s there to take care of you
And take careful notes of all the things you do
Noooowwww think about what you do
Noooowwww is it good for you?
Noooowwww always ask yourself
Noooowwww is this good for my health?
Don’t sing don’t speak this is good for you
Trust me trust me I only say what’s true
Don’t scream don’t blink we made time for you
Trust me trust me this is what we do
Track Name: Life goes on for the perpetrators of our destruction
How does it feel to have nothing left at all and the evidence has gone away from here
It’s a new scenery we share and this scent is bad so bad so bad
We’re all to blame you and me and everyone the same
Oh all to blame to blame to blame we’re all to blame
So what’s new with you? Your nails are so clean today
Oh I tell you friend you know we got nothing left to give it’s sad, so sad
We’re all to blame you and me and everyone the same
Track Name: Your eyes are mansions for old ghosts
Tonight the stars are shining
Tonight the ocean air
Tonight I need my arms around you
Tonight
Tonight the air is cold around you
Tonight I wasn’t there

Your eyes

Tonight the stars are shining
Tonight the salt sea air
Tonight I need your arms around me
Tonight
Tonight I need your arms around me
Tonight
Track Name: $24 and a paradise of options await us
24 dollars gonna haul up to your daughters gonna take em on the city tonight
Take another swig and I piss on myself and I don’t know why and I don’t know why
It takes a twenty ton nuclear bomb to get anybody hoppin’ tonight
going out every evening gonna dance by myself and I don’t know why and I don’t know why

I need little bit more of a handful, need a little more of a bite
I need to hit this buddy can I borrow a light
I need a little something need a little something something I need little something now can you help me? I need to feel this a little bit more every night

Shaking in the middle with the dirty old fiddlers sticking fingers in the edge of a pie
Take a little sniff and you puke on yourself and I don’t know why and I don’t know why
I see my number one natural stallion lookin’ every kinda possible wrong
Crushing on an 80 pound IUD shell and I don’t know why and I don’t know why

Light up your cigarettes light up your windows and wait for the signal that everything has finally come

Crying like a newborn baby it’s hell when there ain’t nobody singing along
Take another swig and I piss on myself and I don’t know why and I don’t know why
24 dollars gonna feed my family full of golden dollarama delights
Fall off the sidewalk and you kill someone else and IDKY

I need little bit more of a handful, need a little more of a bite
I need to hit this buddy can I borrow a light
I need a little something need a little something something I need little something now can you help me? I need to feel this a little bit more every night

24 dollars gonna haul up to your daughters gonna take em on the city tonight
Take another swig and I piss on myself and I don’t know why and I don’t know why
Track Name: My dreams have suddenly become incredibly relevant
You’re so sweet to me
And I
Will weep for you
Through the night
Cause in my dreams
There’s only sea
In between
You and my burning ship
I am lost
The crew has tossed
All I brought with me
In the boiling sea
I face the wind
And breath your breath

You weep for me
And I
Will weep for them
In my dreams
There are no trees
From where I sit
Watching the infinite
Welfare lines
It’s almost time
To flood the planes
And start again
Just weep for me
Weep for me
One more time
Just one more time
Track Name: These opinions make me unique
I need love
I need a heart I can fill
I need love
I wanna be harder to kill
The only one I’ve found
Is too much to believe
Only in the cold hard ground
Can you dare me to leave

I need love
And I don’t want to steal
I need love
Nothing cold and unreal
And I need lust
Like a smooth polished stone
And I need love
I don’t want it alone
The only one I’ve found
You can’t help but admit
Why does she stick around
When I’m dumb piece of shit
The only love I’ve found
Is as soft as the breeze
Only in the cold hard ground
Will I dare her to leave

I need love
I didn’t make a mistake
And I need love
I made a deal I won’t break
Track Name: It’s gotta be close to the end, right?
Come on and take me away
Unless you know something I don’t
I feel like the end is coming soon
Oh I’m sick of this tune
And I’m sick of this room
It’s got a million things that don’t bring me joy
Oh When I was boy I made a million stupid plans
Now I’m a man, who could even care?
Are you aware this party ran out of alcohol a half an hour ago?
But what do you know? these assholes haven’t left
I hope that the end is coming soon
Is there something to do?
I got nothing to prove
I’ve talked to everyone I’ve ever known
Remember at home we have a cozy fucking bed
But soon I’ll be dead in this overcrowded room
It feels like a tomb with too many empty red solo cups
And even though I didn’t go to the last twenty things
Oh I think you understand
That the end is coming soon
I know the end is coming soon
Track Name: The best ways to kill a fascist (dictator waltz 2)
While the boys have held him down
and their boots are on his throat
Tie up his hands and ankles with the finest heavy rope
Then give the whip a crack
And let the horses do their work
While they drag him by his feet on thru the pavement and the dirt
Hopefully he lasts until we hang him in the square
For the crowds with all their bricks and stones
And whatever they’ve prepared
Get their fill
Now that all the tables turned we gleefully rejoice
Can we find a brand new kind of pain that’s equal to his voice
It’s a shame the body’s got so old that it cannot endure
All the innovative tortures we were hoping to explore
It’s a shame
Oh That feeling that you get
No I can’t describe at all
When you scream inside the senate house that it’s time to face the wall
Oh our rifles say the rest
As we point towards the door
And line them in the hallway with their eyes towards the floor
Make sure to count your bullets as you dare to paint the walls
And a helpful match and kerosene will help you clean the halls
Afterwards
You may say that this is evil and I will not disagree
But sometimes you need some evil if you want to be set free
You may say that we’re no different than the horror we replaced
But you can’t fix a broken sewer with a clean and dirtless face
It’s a shame
