Track Name: half-measure
Live free or die
a no rough stuff type deal
all I can cry
all I can sweat

but these are hard times
desperate to be myself
so hard times in place of hard measures
hard crimes in place of hard measures

Ill hustle in blood
Ill hustle in blood
All work and buy outs
for hazard pay
all work and buyouts
for hazard pay

desperate times
for desperate measures
desperate crimes for desperate pleasures

blood sweat and tears
thats how I choose to remember it
no more half measures

mama ill put in the work
mama ill put in the time
most men would rather bleed before
they're made to cry

but all work and no play
makes a dull boy
all work and no play makes a dull boy

but ill make the grade

yeah im sweating blood
and crying sweat
these are hard times

desperate times for desperate measures
desperate crimes for desperate pleasures

Ill hustle in blood
no more half measures
Track Name: pulling teeth//like a sad basterd
take your time
and hurry up
first guess
isnt always kind

but is this bailout
worth your time
yeah is this bailout
worth my time

what you're waiting for
is a moment of clarity
what im waiting for
is a cut on my crooked teeth

but i am filthy
I am clean
head to the pavement
so serene

my business is pulling teeth
cousin business
is booming

hurry up
and take your time
second thoughts
aren't always kind

but is this bleed out
worth the time
yeah you're freaking out
but youll be just fine

yeah i cut my gold on my crooked teeth
it's getting old
but its what I need

you say it to me
speak in circles
drop dead
for clarity

drop dead young blood
for charity

cause my business is pulling teeth
cousin business is booming.
Track Name: seppuku
maybe today
but thats beyond me
maybe today
but thats looking bleak

everything I thought was real
never was
maybe i just cant deal
but its all starting to fuzz

let me get my head straight

youre throwing shade at me
what would you do in worse company
sooner than later
it gets to me

let me get my head straight

sooner than later
it changes the way you think
I dont feel shame
that it changed me
youre throwin shade at me
it only gets worse
sooner than later
it gets to me

let me get my head straight
Track Name: i've been hunting for witches
Oh I always thought you would be around
But I have always known I was wrong
Foaming at the mouth just to feel something
Am I wrong, Am I wrong, Am I wrong?
Then this place ain't a home
It's a halfway house for stray dogs
Oh I always thought that you would be around
But I have always known I was wrong

All my friends aren't so brave
All my friends aren't so brave
No I'm not that brave
No I'm not that brave

Oh I always thought you would be around
But I could only hold up for so long
I promise this will pass just as long as you
Hold still, Hold still, keep calm
You can tell yourself that you feel that way
But how long will you hold that steady pace?
Cause denial has a funny way
Of being easier than change.

All my friends aren't so brave
All my friends aren't so brave
No I'm not that brave
No I'm not that brave

With my tongue in cheek
I'll be careful this time
Sticks and stones will break your bones
But words will always hurt
If you made a commitment
Then fess up to your crimes
You may think it's bad now
But you've yet to see the worst.
Track Name: deadbeat
you pick me out
i cant figure luck
im well aware
im fucked

its a move to keep me still
in open space
im well aware
of what they say

but im eating my words
and it's all conjecture
a play to feel the hurt
and build the pressure

well aware
im fucked
they all stare
cause they're all stuck

oh darling kill or be killed
young dumb and full of cum

you pick me out
but were too blind
its too late to get out
stealing kisses on the side

you're well aware
you dont know
its just something that annoys you
and it goes to show

that were eating our words
and its all conjecture
a move to keep me still
and feel that pressure

well aware
im fucked
you just stare
cause you're just stuck

oh darling
kill or be killed
young dumb and full of cum
Track Name: sitting straight up//at the seance
talking in tonuges
to keep the family spell
what would you do
to keep it from them

the whole family could get sick
so daddy
lock the temple door

lets do what we can
to keep them from coming back
for more

it's a fever cant you tell?
its a fever sitting in the spell
and im sick
as a dog

Im too far gone

but I am guilty
I am the cat that swallowed the canary
and im waiting
but im feeling nothing.

i cant break the spell youre under
but i wonder if the fever
will break another

i keep trying to tell myself
ill have a moment alone
these fevers are spells
and theyll never leave you alone

cut your losses
speaking
seeking
waiting
bleeding
seeking

nothing

daddy lock that temple door
no ones getting out
and nothings coming
I dont care what for

i am guilty i am the cat
that swallowed the canary
and im waiting
but im feeling nothing

i can break this spell
its a fever cant you tell
Track Name: killing time
i dont know what it means to be good
I dont know whats right
sometimes i think ive understood
sometimes it feels like a waste of time

i wont go hungry for you
just cause i can
would you go hungry for me
c'mon baby i know you can

put you hands up to the altar
i am your antichrist
i can help you
if it feels right

yes it feels right

I would wait til you come down
but wheres the fun in that

nothing good happens at 3am
but we go out anyway
maybe its the time of night
maybe we dont like the day

may its just the witching hour
maybe were just killing time
so put your hands to the altar
i am your antichrist

i can help you kill time
if it feels right

you should wait til you come down
but wheres the fun in that
Track Name: dirty||money
well im saving all the pennies
for all the times I gave a damn
but while you're placing losing bets
on your folded hand

Im swearing to drinking
I wont steer us to sinking
but thats a lie
and you know its true
nothing you can do

but I wont waste another dime
I mean it this time

Money honey aint it worth shit
Money honey but its so worth it

Well you really thought
I cared that much
You must be out your mind
Arent ya?

It's a bad ritual
and somethings gotta give
but Im willing to bet
you'll put up with it

And Im a bad bad girl
for never sharin' my change
must owe it to the world
with my taxes paid

so dont waste a cent
on your own two cents
just a penny for your thoughts
in your pounds and penance

money honey
aint it worth shit
money honey
but its so worth it
Track Name: bury my heart(my wounded knees)
Im taking a turn
Im starting to learn
Im burning out the young life
I think that I feel alive

and they will come for my blood
and suck every last drop
with a mouth full of it
theyll try to talk

but dead men tell no tales

its just business baby
its not you its me
bury my heart
at wounded knee

Ill draw it myself
cause Im too far gone
burning out the young life
but whats done is done

and they will come for your blood
I hope you're prepared
theyll come for our blood
and i find it pretty convincing I may no longer care

dead men tell no tales

its just business baby
its not you its me
bury my heart
at wounded knee

Ill draw it my self
cause im too far gone
burning out the young life
whats done is done

and they will come for your blood
and I cant always be fair
theyll come for your blood
and I find it pretty convincing I may no longer care

dead men tell no tales

its just business baby
not you its me
bury my heart
at wounded knee
Track Name: low-life
I can't dig your graves for you
I can't dig all these graves for you
It's not my business
It's not my place
It's bot my business to make you stay

I can make that corpse
Dance for you
I can make him dance for you
It's not my business
It's not my place
It's not my business to make you stay


Let me make that make up run
That cum-stained dress only fits when you're young


I can't raise my kids with you
I could paint my face for you
It's not my business
It's not my place
To make you stay

I can paint my face for you
I could raise my kid with you
What would my mother think
If she saw
What would she do
When she sees what Ive done to you


Let me make that make up run
That cum-stained dress only fits when you're young
