Serve The Servants

Teenage angst has paid off well Now I'm bored and old Self-appointed judges judge more than they have sold If she floats then she is not a witch like we had thought a down payment on another down at salem's lot Serve the Servants, oh no That legendary divorce is such a bore As my bones grew they did hurt They hurt really bad I tried to have a father but instead I had a Dad I just want you to know that I Don't hate you anymore there is nothing I could say That I haven't thought before Serve the Servants, oh no That legendary divorce is such a bore

Scentless Apprentice

Like most babies smell like butter His smell smelled like no other He was born scentless and senseless He was born a scentless apprentice Go away - get away, get away, get a-way Every wet nurse refused to feed him Electrolytes smell like semen I promise not to sell your perfume secrets There are countless formulas for pressing flowers I lie in the soil and fertilize mushrooms Leaking out gas fumes are made into perfume You can't fire me because I quit Throw me in the fire and I won't throw a fit

Heart-Shaped Box

She eyes me like a pisces when I'm weak I've been locked inside your heart-shaped box for a week I've been drawn into your magnet tar pit trap I wish I could eat your cancer when you turn black Hey Wait I've got a new complaint Forever in debt to your priceless advice Hate Haight I've got a new complaint Forever in debt to your priceless advice Hey Wait I've got a new complaint Forever in debt to your priceless advice Meat-eating orchids forgive no one just yet Cut myself on angel's hair and baby's breath Broken hymen of your highness I'm left black Throw down your umbilical noose so I can climb right back

Rape Me

Rape me, my friend Rape me again I'm not the only one Hate me Do it and do it again Waste me Taste me, my friend My favorite inside source I'll kiss your open sores Appreciate your concern You'll always stink and burn

Frances Farmer will have her revenge on Seattle

It's so relieving to know that you're leaving as soon as you get paid It's so relaxing to hear that you're asking wherever you get your way It's so soothing to know that you'll sue me This is starting to sound the same I miss the comfort in being sad In her false witness, we hope you're still with us, to see if they float or drown Our favorite patient, display of patience, disease-covered Puget Sound She'll come back as fire, to burn all the liars and leave a blanket of ash on the ground I miss the comfort in being sad

Dumb

I'm not like them But I can pretend The sun is gone But I have a light The day is done but I'm having fun I think I'm dumb or maybe just happy Think I'm just happy My heart is broke But I have some glue Help me inhale and mend it with you We'll float around and hang out on clouds Then we'll come down and have a hangover Have a hangover Skin the sun fall asleep Wish away The soul is cheap Lesson learned Wish me luck Soothe the burn Wake me up I'm not like them but I can pretend the sun is gone But I have a light The day is done But I'm having fun I think I'm dumb

Very Ape

I am buried up to me neck in Contradictionary flies I take pride as the king of illiterature I'm very ape and very nice If you ever need anything please don't hesitate To ask someone else first I'm too busy acting like I'm not naive I've seen it all, I was here first Out of the ground Into the sky Out of the sky Into the dirt

Milk It

I am my own parasite I don't need a host to live We feed off of eachother We can share our endorphins Doll steak, test meat I own my own pet virus I get to pet and name her Her milk is my shit My shit is her milk test meat, doll steak Look on the bright side is suicide Lost eyesight I'm on your side Angel left wing, right wing, broken wing Lack of iron and/or sleeping Protector of the kennel Ecto-plasma Ecto-skeletal Obituary Birthday your scent is still here in my place of recovery

Pennyroyal Tea

I'm on my time with everyone I have very bad posture Sit and drink Pennyroyal tea Distill the life that's inside of me Sit and drink Pennyroyal tea I'm anemic royalty Give me a Leonard Cohen afterworld So I can sigh eternally I'm so tired I can't sleep I'm a liar and a thief Sit and drink Pennyroyal tea I'm anemic royalty I'm on warm milk and laxatives Cherry Flavored antacids

Radio Friendly Unit Shifter

Use just once and destroy Invasion of our piracy Afterbirth of a nation Starve without your skeleton key I love you for what I am not I do not want what I have got A blanket acne'ed with cigarette burns Speak at once while taking turns Second-rate third degree burns What is wrong with me What is what I need What do I think I think This had nothing to do with what you think If you ever think at all bi-polar opposites attract All of a sudden my water broke Hate, hate your enemies Save, save your friends find, find your place Speak, speak the truth

Tourettes

(This version my not be 100% accurate) It's your enemy, no way! Get out all the time of my heart There's no enemy in my heart Well I'm a psychopath, in my heart Hey! All the time I've been fucked--it's my heart We're all also dead in my heart Oh no! It's the fault of my heart Oh no! It's the fault of my heart We are... Cold Heart

All Apologies

What else should I be All apologies What else could I say Everyone is gay What else could I write I don't have the right What else shoudl I be All apologies In the sun In the sun I feel as one In the sun In the sun I'm married buried I wish I was like you Easily amused Find my nest of salt Everything is my fault I'll take all the blame Aqua seafoam shame Sunburn with freezerburn Choking on the ashes of her enemy All in all is all we all are
