Track Name: Legitimate
i know you were joking
but you were so right
i will spend a decade
in obscurity
in this neighbourhood
of conspiracy
i will sell back what i stole from you
we can split the profits
it was so clear, it was mine to steal
the joke curse is turning real
but now i feel
a deep regret (deep regret)
buyer's resentment
i carry with me
this last intent
i hope they at least think that i'm legitimate
Track Name: Ready to Spark
oh how sweet
your heart in the heart
ready to spark
the heat in your heart

i can't breathe in through my nose
or my brain will be discovered by the freezing cold
i sing now so i can stop
livin only in your thoughts

but oh how sweet
your heart in the heart
ready to spark
the heat in your heart
Track Name: True Fool
you are a bitter editor and a true fool
rejecting every gift that I've given you
i can see through cute
and you are see through

you're just a kitten babysittin' this true fool
i can see how that could throw you
i can see the truth
thats hid behind you
cause you are see-through

but i'm still a true fool
a true-to-you fool
and a fool to you truly

im just a bitter editor and a true fool too
accepting any job just to be close to you
i can see through cute
and you are see-through

but i'm still a true fool
a true-to-you fool
and a fool to you truly
Track Name: Blood of the Boyfriend
you're spending tuesday money like it's saturday night
walking on that jagged line, trying to keep upright
levelling out, i see now
i had made you my enemy somehow
if letting you in was my sin
i'm sure its just a thought invoked
by an incantation

it should be known
i'm just a man provoked
by an incantation

called the blood of the boyfriend
i see it, and i get sick
all the blood thats in your boyfriend
on you

it should be known
i'm just a man provoked
by his incantations

like the blood of the boyfriend
i see it and i get sick
cause i know the blood of the boyfriend's
in me if you want it to be
Track Name: Mystery Books
he retold my story as his own
they'll be spreading fiction
teaching thrilling lies to children

cleaning up the evidence
scraping off my fingerprints
take it from the top thief
it can be stolen easily

keep your magic to yourself
real detectives hate
your mystery books

sometimes reader, i forget
you only know what i tell you of it
if suddenly I retire from the public eye
I will return to the private eye

keep your magic to yourself
real detectives hate your mystery books
keep your magic to yourself
real detective hate your mystery books
mystery books
mystery books
Track Name: Struck From The List
i can always trick myself
always trick myself
always trick

you're the one who's clueless
you're the one who's cruel
don't know how you got
everyone believing you

this i insist
we are to be
struck from the list

this is my emphasis
my emphasis, mine

i can always trick myself
always trick myself
always trick
Track Name: Pain Tally
only within my deepest delusions
could the scrawling of her pen concern me
why should there be a smile there waiting for me?

now i come to have to wonder
if i would have ever offered
what would she have said?

one, two, three, four
strike the pain tally

son, for your birthday
i give you this welder's kit
go out and blow your future with it

one, two, three, four
strike the pain tally
Track Name: Time Trials
ten minutes behind and he's racing alone
chasing her ghost on my walk home

tells himself
i am so dumb
whats my problem

calls himself conductor of the emptiest train
dragging behind him this load of dead weight

the communal pen is running dry
i'm giving up all control
going backwards through time trials
Track Name: Stupidity Parade
with minutes left and systems failing
all seemed hopeless
i still can't believe but i heard them say
"we had a real long laugh about you today"
and i wonder, did it ricochet?
just trying to find my way
around this stupidity parade
i'm just trying to find my way
around this stupidity parade
Track Name: L.B. Forever
your eyes made the wind water
your smile made the star shoot itself
your legs cant peddle any faster
or right now you'd probably be
somewhere farther away from me
and i felt like such shit cause
i knew what i was doing
was wrong when i did it
you never attempted to bring me pleasure
just a loading bar forever
