Track Name: Frigid
Take a swig and now I'm in it.
I'm stuck in love,
So please let me be,
Let me be.

You aren't even doing
Anything to me,
And it's the worst;
God damn it hurts.

[Two times]
That's not how it works, it didn't;
I am ever oh so frigid.
Waited for me to visit, I didn't.

You watched me fall in and out of love.
All the while, right by my side,

You watched me die;
You watched me die;
You watched me die;
You watched me die;
You watched me die.

[Two times]
That's not how it works, it didn't;
I am ever oh so frigid.
Waited for me to visit, I didn't.
Track Name: Steeze
My body is always aching;
It feels like my bones are breaking,
But I don't care, it is all in my mind.
But every time I think about kissing you,
My body goes silent, I crack like a thin mint.

[Two times]
I'm always waking up late, trying to remember last night.
Baby we're not that great, but I guess that's alright.
These blue pills that I ate make me stay up all night, make me stay up all night, make me stay up all night.

I can't say it feels good not to
Ever try, it's easier to
Settle to the middle of the bell curve,
But it's true I want to, want to
Rise above the pieces of shit
That I parlay with to go about
My daily life because I'm what your girlfriend dreams about.

And it seems like I'm too fly
To paint between the lines.
And it seems like there's no point
In pretending I give a...
Say what you will, I'm the best that you'll have;
You probably can't handle the steeze that I pack.
Say what you will, I'm that best that you'll have;
You probably can't handle my steeze.

And it seems like I'm too fly
To paint between the lines.
And it seems like there's no point
In pretending I give a...
Say what you will, I'm the best that you'll have;
You probably can't handle the steeze that I pack.
Say what you will, I'm that best that you'll have;
You probably can't handle my steeze.
Track Name: Pale Rider
It's only a passing thing,
And soon I will pass by it.
I mean it's not like you are
Anyone special. That's what I
Try to tell myself.
I mean it's not like we could have
Anything special. That's not what happens.
I'll pass on by.
I know you don't like talk of suicide,
So that's why I wrote this next line.

Someone help me I'm falling for you,
Off my chair and suspended by a rope in my room.
It's rather silly, truthfully.

You're my cemetery. I visit you when I want to seal
All the cracks in the plaster of all that I've built
To convince myself that love isn't real.

So I've come to find
That pretentious and obnoxious is what makes a boy
Close to my heart,
And if that is true I am the ultimate narcissist.
It fits.
I know you don't like talk of suicide,
So that's why I wrote this next line.

Someone help me I'm falling for you,
Off my chair and suspended by a rope in my room.
It's rather silly, truthfully.

You're my cemetery. I visit you when I want to seal
All the cracks in the plaster of all that I've built
To convince myself that love isn't real.
Sooner or later I'll find out the right way to go about this.

I know you are not the answer,
But I can't shake that feeling of
Every time I look at you I'm
Burning up I'm burning up I'm...
I know you are not the answer,
But I can't shake that feeling of
Every time I look at you I'm
Burning up I'm burning up I'm...

[Repeated later]
Track Name: I'll Tell You What I See
I was walking down the street my friend
I'll tell you what I see:
All these goddamned people
Looking down on me.
[repeated like 50 million times]

These streets that I walk,
Paved with bigotry.
