Track Name: how to let go of what you can't get a grip on
8 months
it was all on your time
your calendar

i fucking hate you then i don't
i love you then you're my biggest best

i've dated this town longer than i dated you
you jaded your expensive clothes and your shoes
all over my pale face

how to let go of
what you can't get a grip on
how to hold on to
what was ripped out of your palm
Track Name: pheromones (old misses)
no one smells like i want em too
no one looks like i want em too
no one's mouth kisses like my old misses

how are you finding it
are you finding your fun
are you staying with some man
some uptown hotel
"have you forgotten what i've done?"

no one yells as much as you did
no one blacks out as much as you did
no one's giving me that blow now
off my meds in the good part of town
Track Name: president's day
when you tried to die
she called me with wet eyes
she called me, desperate
you were violent
you were black out
i calm you down

i am your wild animal soul wrangler

and then you don't
respond to my calls
i am hiding under your door mat
in that hole
in that stain
in the hole on our sheets
Track Name: concrete slab
seattle
texas
seattle
columbia
seattle
then my bedroom

your voice is soft then sharp then warm then warped then love then hate then a concrete slab

crown heights
then
greenpoint
then
LA
then
are you happy yet
did you quit your self-prescribed medicine?
