Track Name: 1.
sometimes i wake up in the morning
sometimes i wake up in the night
outside the rain is pouring
but for the first time it's all right
my friends are all fucked up around me
glass bottles still in their hands
i think a higher power's found me
come to take me off of this land

but i'm afraid that he might be too late...
Track Name: Television
i simply don't know what road to take
i'm head over heels and everywhere al over the place

so i sit in front of the television
nowhere to go
nowhere to find commission

i simply don't know how to get through today
the weight of the world is lifted but who's gonna pay
Track Name: Tattoo
i'm falling asleep on her shoulder
and my eyes are burning black
she's got my name tattooed on her back

i never meant you any harm
Track Name: Esmé Knows
esmé knows the monsters under my bed
says to me they're all just in your head
another sleepless night oh not again
self administered illegal meds

esmé knows the shapes that mark my walls
tells me boy one day you will grow tall
hold me close and never let me go
tell me everything i want to know

esmé knows...
