Track Name: Leave It There
By god, what have you done?
Used to be so fun
Now you come in here
Naming everything you want

Welcome is worn out?
Get up and get out?
What war in this house?
All is quiet on my front

A real friend
Would understand

No you didn’t, no you didn't
No you didn’t, no you didn't

Can’t wrap my head
‘Round anything you said
Just leave it there
Leave it there
Dare turn this thing around
With nothing to defend
Just leave it there
Leave it there
Just leave it

Promised I wouldn’t take
Anything unclean
I haven’t opened
My poor mouth in the whole week

And now I'm starving
Yes, I am hungry
Said you would feed me
Yet you let me get so weak

It isn’t fair
It isn’t fair

No you didn’t, no you didn't
You won’t admit it, no you didn’t

Can’t wrap my head
‘Round anything you said
Just leave it there
Leave it there
Can't turn this thing around
With nothing to pretend
Just leave it there
Leave it there
Just leave it

Can’t wrap my head
‘Round anything you said
Just leave it there
Leave it there
Can't turn this thing around
With nothing to pretend
Just leave it there
Leave it there
Just leave it
Just leave it
Let's leave it there
Let's leave it there

Can’t win my love until you win my trust
Don’t get my love just because you got my blood
Track Name: Notwithstanding
Could've been brilliant
Could've been rich
A bit more resilient
To a bit more stick
If I'd had more luck
If I'd filled my scrip
I might not be planning
To trigger my itch
I tell you, the hell with this shit

I'm done with it
Done with it
Done with the pain and the tears
It's useless, demanding
I'm notwithstanding here
I'm done with it
Just done with it
Done with the faith and the fear
Abuse and abandon
I'm notwithstanding, here
I'm done

Well, look who's crawled from
The suburban sprawl
If he couldn't have her
She'll have no one at all
Broke the news this morning
At the shopping mall
Another lowlife leaning on a machine-gun crutch
Has called it quits
And I'm done with this shit

Done with it
Done with it
Done with the pain and the tears
It's useless, demanding
I'm notwithstanding here
I'm done with it
Just done with it
Done with the faith and the fear
Abuse and abandon
I'm notwithstanding, here
I'm done

Done with it
Done with it
Done with the pain and the tears
It's useless, demanding
I'm notwithstanding here
I'm done with it
Just done with it
Done with the faith and the fear
It's abuse and abandon
I'm notwithstanding, here
I'm done
Track Name: Long Blink
Oh, it was cold in the night and the light is what they bring
Imitation: the eternal spring
Oh, you can dine out on your luck and weak champagne
Only serves to ease your shame

You rode acclaim into the summer
Your autumn bore the wrath of kings
And now your sun has begun fading
Fading

Ohh, what you think is just wrong
What you drink isn't strong
Held your blink far too long
Ohh, what you think is just wrong
What you drink isn't strong
Held your blink for too long
Long blink
It's a long blink

Oh, you pushed into the light but the sight disarmed your sting
Pretense: the art of suffering
Oh, you're a homage for hire not a liar seeking fame
Simulation just the same

You rode acclaim into the summer
Your autumn bore the wrath of kings
And now your sun has begun fading
You're faking
Track Name: Going Native
She pulled an arrow
Straight from his heart
Shot it into the night
Split into a star

Back dropped to the earth
Invitation smile
A tempt to fate
And to defile

Sprung up a hero in paradise
Not quite a man deep in her eyes

I'm going native
I'm hearing wolves
I'm drowning in rain
I'm buried in wood

I'm going native
I'm hearing wolves
I'm drowning in rain
I'm buried in wood

Broke skin and bit down
And shook with ire
A rending gash
A soul caught fire

The poison took
Both sweet and vile
So lost in sin
And so worthwhile

Woke up a demon to no surprise
No more a man but in disguise

I'm going native
I'm hearing wolves
I'm drowning in rain
I'm buried in wood

I'm going native
I'm hearing wolves
I'm drowning in rain
I'm buried in wood (and I'm feeling good)

I'm hearing wolves
Track Name: Hold It
I'm glad I caught you on the lawn
Thought that you had gone
I didn't want to miss you

You, would you like some gum
I could give you some
Then I wanna kiss you

I know you're scared
And I can't hold it against you
But can I hold it against you
Can I hold it against you

I'm glad you think this school is lame
Sorry that you came
Maybe I could assist you

You could join our little band
I could take your hand
Then I wanna kiss you

I know you're scared
And I can't hold it against you
But can I hold it against you
Can I hold it against you
Hold it against you
But can I hold it against you
Can I hold it against you

I'm glad you made it to the show
Hoped that you would know
Your name was on the list, too

She is really just a friend
At least she was right then
When she saw me kiss you

I know you're scared
And I can't hold it against you
But can I hold it against you
Can I hold it against you
I know you're scared
And I can't hold it against you
But can I hold it against you
Can I hold it against you

Hold it against you
Hold it against you
Hold it against you
Track Name: Get What You Get
You get what you get if you're not strong
This was gonna be a love song
But it came out different
Now it's about how you done me wrong
You get what you get if you're not strong
This was gonna be a love song
But it came out different

Time for a good old fashioned
Words hurting, truth blurting, tears squirting, tear shirting
I gotta put the work in, yo
Check it out in my mind is a crime spree
Had my brain locked down but it broke free
Spitting liquid hate like a true G
Unleash the flow in your face if you fuck me
Yeah, I'm a killer though I might not look it
Bet your life but I already took it
Hear the sound on the ground where ya walking
Don't see me coming but I heard you been talking, yo
Woke up in a good mood
Fangs sharp and looking for food
You get what you get so let's rock this building
Before the chalkline in your future gets filled in
This shit comes original
All about getting personal
Don't want no more to be hurting, no
So...

You get what you get if you're not strong
This was gonna be a love song
But it came out different
Now it's about how you done me wrong
You get what you get if you're not strong
This was gonna be a love song
But it came out different

Time to get it off my chest I'm
Straight illing, not chilling like Dylan, I'm a villain
The handsome grandson of Manson, yo
Listen up, I'm-a give it to you one time
That's my story and I'm sticking to my rhyme
So listen, or I'll blacken your other eye
Hard enough to make your unborn bastard cry
Yeah, I'm a killer but I try to make nice
Taking lives left and right is my only vice
Jabbing eyes making raccoon goggles
So bad to the bone why you mess the mind boggles
Rolled up in a good mood
Right away, this shit got kinda rude
You get what you get so let's rock this building
Before my mood swing caves your grill in
This shit comes professional
Have a seat in my confessional
Don't want no one to be stressing, no
So...

You get what you get if you're not strong
This was gonna be a love song
But it came out different
Now it's about how you done me wrong
You get what you get if you're not strong
This was gonna be a love song
But it came out different

Time for one more
Down throwing, mad flowing, off going, mind blowing
About to break it down, young'n
Check it, see the truth like a prism
I'm an alpha organism, my wisdom's god gism
So head's up, making love like cupid
So many shorties on my jock it's stupid
Yeah, I'm a killer but I dress to impress
Where I hide my pistol is anybody's guess
But yo, it's pointing in your direction
Getting down, behold the resurrection
Rolling out in a good mood
Heading home and then I'm getting nude
Cause I get what I get when I rock this building
I'm loving life and my jimmy is still in
This shit comes rhetorical
Literal and metaphorical
Straight up categorical, sing it yo
So...

You get what you get if you're not strong
This was gonna be a love song
But it came out different
Now it's about how you done me wrong
You get what you get if you're not strong
This was gonna be a love song
But it came out different

Now it's about how you done me
Now it's about how you done me
Now it's about how you done me wrong
Track Name: Sweet Freek
Makeup with malice
Lipstick teeth
Rip in her stocking
So her skin can breathe

Stain on the carpet
Faucet leak
Rat in the cupboard
Widow’s peak

The sticky is sour
The rub is sweet
Devil in the details
When she doth speak

Know me, now you do
Somewhere deep
My fruit is the truth
Now feed on it, freek

Two days out of the week
I am invincible
Five days I’m feeling weak
Almost invisible
I don’t adult well
I can’t sleep
You say I’m no good for you
I see your point of view, but I don't

Care if you do me wrong
Just come and do me
It’s been way too long
Since you’ve been through me
Yeah

Wake up with Alice
Watch her sleep
Stomach is rising
As she breathes

Her neck throbs a heartbeat
Dries in the breeze
A tangle of dark hair
And bruises and knees

Two days out of the week
I am invincible
Five days I’m feeling weak
Almost a vegetable
I don’t adult well
I can’t sleep
You say, "I’m no good for you"
I see your point of view, but I don’t

Care if you do me wrong
Just come and do me
It’s been a weight too long
So come right through me
Yeah
You came to do me wrong
Come on and do me
It's been a weight too long
So show it to me
Yeah

Woo!
C’mon!
Another token!
Thank you!

Two days out of the week

Care if you do me wrong
So come and do me
It's been way too long
Since you’ve been through me
Yeah
You came to do me wrong
Now fucking do me
It's been way too long
Since you’ve been through me
Yeah
Track Name: Leader of Men
You said you make lots of money
You said amazing five times
You can't pretend that you don't see
And maintain you're benign
Sometimes a shiny new trophy
Is just a head on the wall
It really is your problem
If it's affecting us all

It really is your problem
Quit deflecting

We need a leader
A leader of men
The truth is untold
Don't point at me
Too much yet to see
Grow up when I'm old
In a little bit
Have your little fit
Let the riddle unfold
Don't run away
There's a way to be calm
And a way to be cold

They're making friends with connections
Sharing distractions in stalls
Selling reprieve to the young and naive
As they piss down the walls
It's time you stepped in and stopped them
Use any method you can
Just use your powers to trick and deceive
Just think like a man

Go on and bleed the way
Quit protecting

We need a leader
A leader of men
The truth goes untold
Don't point at me
Too much yet to see
Grow up when I'm old
Not all ideas
Should turn a profit
It's time you entered the fold
Don't run away
There's a way to be calm
And a way to be cold

You said you make lots of money
You said amazing five times
You can't pretend that you don't see
And maintain you're benign

Sometimes a shiny new trophy
Is just a head on the wall
It really is your problem
If it's affecting us all

It really is your problem
Quit deflecting

We need a leader
A leader of men
The truth is untold
Don't point at me
Too much yet to see
Grow up when I'm old
In a little bit
Have your little fit
Let the riddle unfold
Don't run away
There's a way to be calm
And a way to be cold
Don't run away
There's a way to be calm
And a way to be cold
Don't run away
There's a way to be calm
And a way to be cold
Track Name: The Ringing
Shot
The singing stopped
The stinging thoughts
Still clinging
Can't stop the ringing

Do we light a candle?
Do we feed the flame?
Do we like the scandal?
Do we fleece the shame?
Do we write a love song?
Give it the wrong name?
Retail the feeling
Can't stop the ringing

Shot
The singing stopped
The clinging thoughts
Still stinging
Can't stop the ringing

Do we light a candle?
Do we feed the flame?
Do we buy the scandal?
Do we steal the shame?
Can we write a love song?
Give it a long mane
Sift through the meaning
Won't stop the ringing

Shot
The singing stopped
The clinging thoughts
Still stinging
Can't stop the ringing
Shot
The singing stopped
The clinging thoughts
Still stinging
Can't stop the ringing
