1.
To a nightmare he woke from his lair in the woods An army of orcs and their crushing machines He began working spells but his magic was weak 14 moons on the streets left him frail in physique and half dead Adrenaline stirring The beast that's inside of us all They cry out for mercy He knows he must heed to their call He limped to the shadows to gather his forces The frost on the leaves lifting, swirling in circles Nearby in the clearing the thrashing of mortals they hope for a hero to scare off the jackals of war Thunder and lightning His rags light with glittering stars Clashing of night sticks With luck they will lean on their swords the innocent parties were able to flee while the violent attackers were hurled and heaved Orcs lay in a heap 'til they all turned to stone may they someday be used as a wanderers' throne in the park There lies a lesson To leave those who suffer alone There might be a wizard To stand up for those without homes
2.
I live on the wrong side of the sematary Not to be confused with the wrong side of the tracks They keep burying the living, and the dead keep coming back. Why don’t you just fucking die? Home sweet home I wish you’d go rot Leader of this country doesn’t have shit for thought The night is so quiet The air is so still Till the hands reach out and draw so very near I can’t feel my face I can’t fucking breathe
3.
On the horizon, just out of reach Disintegrating as we get closer Back at the bottom, look to the sky We can only dream about a way out Free from crushing doldrums Food and housing insecurities School and medical debt we can't pay Some need shelter, some need death Some need validation for existing Reaching together, a sea of hands It floats over grazing fingers Salt, oil, water, blood and gold Fame and fortune, love and forgiveness Not just wants but basic needs Enough for all but here come the tyrants Unobtainium Would you kill for a taste of some? What if we all get what we need? On the horizon, just out of reach Disintegrating as we get closer Back at the bottom, look to the sky We can only dream about a way out Breaking rocks and digging holes Stuck in place like glue in the engine This could be our ticket out This could be the answer to our problems Unobtainium Would you kill for a taste of some? What if we all get what we need?
4.
Your life is fucking over Say Goodbye
5.
So you prey just to get thru Push past the lies swear they're all true Can't believe it but it's 2 + 2 He knows better than that knows the speech front to back He knows better than that Knows the speech and that's a fact Not just today but tomorrow too Looking for the signs Listens to line after line So you've been shook But still on the hook He knows better than that Knows the speech front to back He knows better than that Knows the speech and that's a fact Looking for the signs Listens to line after line Push past the lies Swear they're all true He knows better than that Knows the speech front to back He knows better than that knows the speech and that's a fact
6.
You feign sadness You can’t be for real I’m not fucking sad Now that I can feel Don’t ask about my sadness There’s none to be had I need you to know Broken out of this gaslighting fog and I don’t feel fucking bad Claim to the world I’m a feminist I need to tell everyone Scream to the world social justice Scream to the world kill everyone Scream to the world pity me Scream to the world I wanna fucking die
7.
It never fails to affect me I think you're all out to get me I keep a pocket full of milksteak It only ever brings me heartache Can't think of nothin' no more I can't remember what thoughts are for At least I don't gotta play dumb anymore It never fails to amuse me So many ways that you can use me I can't control my sensitivity I think i stole my own identity Can't think of nothin' no more I can't remember what thoughts are for At least I don't gotta play dumb anymore I'm gonna cross me off my friends list And then I'll drink myself senseless Wake up and where'd the world go? I can't remember what I didn't know Can't think of nothin' no more I can't remember what thoughts are for At least I don't gotta play dumb anymore
8.
This ain’t no summer of love More like the summer of shit It just keeps dragging on And I’m sure as fuck losing it I wandered into my favorite movie Now I can’t get out I just want to hug my friends So how do I get out? Now the world is on fire I can’t go outside The air I’m breathing is suffocating me Or this virus attacking me Or this smoke inside my lungs Or spontaneous combustion
9.
CEO of employee piss jars In a pandemic, he says no to a $1 raise They don't like you, and I don't like you either I see your face and I want to start a class war Somehow you feel justified No matter how hard they try Somehow you feel justified I hope your jet falls from the sky
10.
Walking down the street I saw a very sharp knife. What kind of knife exactly, well there are many types. Boot knifes, blade knifes, machetes, butter knifes. Knifes, you’re gonna get cut. We’re gonna cut you up. Knifes.
