    My Boy (Twin Fantasy)

    My boy, we don't see each other much
    it'll take some time
    but somewhere down the line
    we won't be alone

  2. Beach Life-In-DeathLyrics

    Beach Life-In-Death

    Last night I drove to Harper’s Ferry and I thought about you
    there were signs on the road that warned me of stop signs
    the speed limit kept decreasing by ten
    as we entered a town about halfway there
    it was almost raining at the train station
    we put our hoods on our heads at the train station
    we threw rocks into the river
    the river underneath the train tracks

    And when the train came it was so big and powerful
    when it came into the little station
    I wanted to put my arms around it
    but the conductor looked at me funny
    so we had to say goodbye and leave
    the monopoly board still in the backseat
    took that nightmare left turn to get out of town
    ran into the decreasing speed limits again

    What should I do? Eat breakfast
    What should I do? Eat lunch
    What should I do? Eat dinner
    What should I do? Go to bed
    Where can I go? Go to the store
    Where can I go? Apply for jobs
    Where can I go? Go to a friend’s
    Where can I go? Go to bed

    I wrote beach death when I thought you were taken
    I wrote beach funeral when I knew you were taken
    I wrote beach fags, well it wasn’t about you
    but it could’ve been. well no it couldn’t have
    I spent a week in Ocean City
    and came back to find you were gone
    I spent a week in Illinois
    and came back to find you were still gone

    I pretended I was drunk when I came out to my friends
    I never came out to my friends
    We were all on S----
    and I laughed and changed the subject
    she said “what’s with this dog motif”
    I said “do you have something against
    dogs”

    I am almost completely soulless
    I am incapable of being human
    I am incapable of being inhuman
    I am living uncontrollably

    It should be antidepression
    as a friend of mine suggested
    because it’s not the sadness that hurts you
    it’s the brain’s reaction against it

    It’s not enough to love the unreal
    I am inseparable from the impossible
    I I want gravity to stop for me
    My soul yearns for a fugitive from the laws of nature
    I want a cut scene
    I want a cut from your face to my face
    I want a cut I want
    the next related video

    I don’t want to go insane
    I don’t want to have schizophrenia

    The ocean washed over your grave

    Part II

    Last night I dreamed he was trying to kill you
    I woke up and I was trying to kill you
    It’s been a year since we first met
    I don’t know if we’re boyfriends yet

    Do you have any crimes that
    we can use to pass the time I’m
    running out of drugs to try

    We said we hated humans
    We wanted to be humans

    Get more groceries get eaten get more groceries get eaten get more groceries get eaten

    A book of Aubrey Beardsley art
    corrupted me in youth
    now I’m trapped inside my youth
    and you’re in love with late-stage youth

    Thank god for the little things and and
    fuck god that they’re little things I am
    running out of prayers to sing

    And pretty soon you’ll find some nice young
    satanist with braces and one
    capital o significant Other
    and you can take him home to your mother and
    say ma, this is my brother

    We said we hated humans
    We wanted to be humans

    Get more groceries get eaten get more groceries get eaten get more groceries

    Get eaten by the one you love
    when they put their lips around you
    you can feel their smile from the inside

    Part III

    Last night I dreamed he was trying to kill you
    I woke up and I was trying to kill you

    Your ears perked up
    I perked up when your ears perked up
    you were all looking around
    and I hoped it was for me
    I hoped you were using your sonar systems for me

    The ancients saw it coming
    you can see that they tried to warn them
    in the tales that they told their children
    but they fell out of their heads in the morning

    They said sex can be frightening
    but the children were not listening
    and the children cut out everything
    except for the kissing and the singing

    when they finally found their home
    at W--- D----- studios
    and then everyone grew up
    with their fundamental schemas fucked

    but there are lots of fish left in the sea
    there are lots of fish in business suits
    that talk and walk on human feet
    and visit doctors, have weak knees

    oh please let me join your cult
    I’ll paint my face in your colors
    You had a real nice face
    I had an early death

    The ocean washed over your grave
    The ocean washed open your grave
    (how’s your face? How’s your body?)
    (WE’RE TOO SCARED TO DO SHIT)

  3. Stop Smoking
  4. Sober To DeathLyrics

    Sober To Death

    Lovely lovely
    in your jeans, frenzy
    another movie that I didn’t watch with you
    another movie and I’m gonna have to move

    That final terror is in your house somewhere
    Hiding in boxes, behind closed doorways
    Out from the forest adjacent to your garage
    I’ve seen its marks at the corners of your eyes

    Nothing works
    Nothing works for everyone
    Good stories are bad lives
    Good stories are bad lives

    Take your hands off your neck and hold
    On to the ghost of my body
    You know that good lives make bad stories
    You can text me
    When punching mattresses gets old
    Don’t think it’ll always be this way
    Not comforted by anything I say
    We were wrecks before we crashed into each other

    Such a good idea
    If it turns you on
    We have breakdowns
    And sometimes we don’t have breakdowns

    I want to hear you going psycho
    If you’re going psycho I wanna hear
    Every conversation just ends with you screaming
    Not even words, just ahh-ahh-ahh

    Take my hands off your neck and hold
    On to the ghost of your body
    I know that good lives make bad stories
    You can text me
    When punching mattresses gets old
    What if it’ll always be this way
    Not comforted by anything you say
    We were wrecks before we crashed into each other

    Don’t worry
    You and me won’t be alone no more

  5. Nervous Young InhumansLyrics

    Nervous Young Inhumans

    You should’ve seen my cursive back then
    Every letter was above the line
    My p’s and q’s raised their stems
    So nothing crossed beneath
    I’m a little better now

    You galvanistic young boy
    You galvanistic young man
    You galvanistic young inhuman
    You understand

    Art gets what it wants and art gets what it deserves

    Most people are jokes but you’re so real
    Most of the time that I use the word “you”
    Well you know that I’m mostly singing about you

    You swore you’d never use
    The face that your ex invented
    So let’s meet up in
    Uncanny valley

    You galvanistic young boy
    You galvanistic young man
    You galvanistic young inhuman
    You understand

    You’ll get what you want and you’ll get what you deserve

  6. BodysLyrics

    Bodys

    That’s not what I meant to say at all
    I mean, I’m sick of meaning
    I just wanna hold you

    But that’s not what I wanted to say at all
    I mean, I’m sick of meaning
    I just wanna hold you

    (Is it the chorus yet?
    No. It’s just a building of the verse
    So when the chorus does come, it’ll be more rewarding.)

    I would speak to you in song
    But you can’t sing
    As far as I’m aware
    Though everyone can sing
    As you are well aware
    I keep so quiet
    It’s hard to tell I’m alive

    Everybody’s swinging their hips
    Everybody’s giving the waitress tips
    Everybody’s dancing all of the dances
    Everybody’s dancing every dance now

    Those are you got some nice shoulders
    I’d like to put my hands around them
    I’d like to put my hands around them

    I have enough trouble controlling my own limbs
    Stealing alcohol from our parents and grandparents
    There’s no devil on one shoulder and angel on the other
    They’re just two normal people

    These are the people that I get drunk with
    These are the people that I fell in love with
    These are the people that I get drunk with
    These are the people that I fell in love with

    But if you keep giving me your empty hands man I am tempted to say let’s piss up another rope boys this one has grown old and bitter

    Well, so what? So what?
    We’re young
    We’re thin (most of us)
    We’re alive (most of us)

    Don’t you realize our bodies could fall apart at any second?
    I am terrified your body could fall apart at any second
    Those are you got some nice shoulders
    I'd like to put my hands around them
    We can get real horny
    And keep messing around
    We can keep real quiet
    Won’t be making no sounds
    I’ll try my best
    not to touch your face
    Next time can we
    please meet at my place

    I know that I don’t talk a lot
    But I know that you don’t care a lot
    As long as we move our bodies around a lot
    We’ll forget that we forgot how to talk
    When we dance

  7. Cute ThingLyrics

    Cute Thing

    I got so fucking romantic
    I apologize
    Lemme light your cigarette
    Come visit Kansas for a week of debauchery
    Songs and high fives and weird sex

    Cute thing
    Don’t be rude, thing

    Hot thing
    It was nothing

    God
    Give me Dan Bejar’s voice
    And John Entwistle’s stage presence
    I will be your rock, God, when you’re rolling the dice

    I got so fucking romantic
    I apologize
    Lemme smoke your weed, no wait
    Healthy minds make sexy bodies
    Let us touch so much of ourselves together

    Cute thing
    Don’t be rude, thing

    Hot thing
    It was nothing

    Dog
    Give me one little chance
    I can make you a man
    I will be your rock, dog, when you’re rolling your eyes

    He died in an explosion
    Of mixed media and poorly written reviews
    And some stammering drunk who tried to tell him how good his shit was
    That is some good shit, man
    I accidentally spoke your first name aloud
    Trying to make it fit in the lyrics of Ana Ng, worked like a charm

    I would sleep naked
    Next to you naked

    Like some Stanley Kubrick porn director
    Casting couples, eyes wide shut for a reason

  8. High To DeathLyrics

    High To Death

    I fell over
    I fell onto the ground
    I wish I was sober
    I can’t get up off the ground

    I closed my eyes
    And thought I was blind
    It’s the middle of the night
    And I’ll never be alright again

    And this wallpaper
    Keeps going round the room
    Keeps going round the room
    And I follow it around the room

    [the break down]

    And I sat there on the steps
    Considering death
    There were only seconds left of the night

    And I said hell is the sun
    Burning forever at the center of things
    A ball on fire at the center of things
    A brain on fire at the center of things

    And the sea isn’t green
    And I love this dream
    But how exactly can we
    Escape from behind the wall?

  9. Famous Prophets (Minds)Lyrics

    Famous Prophets (Minds)

    Apologies to future mes and yous
    But I can’t help feeling like we’re through

    The ripping of the tape hurts my ears
    In my years
    I have never seen anyone quit quite like you do

    Twin bruises on my shins
    From where I kicked the back of the seat in
    They meant what I went through for you
    But now they’re fading, now they’re gone

    These teenage hands will never touch yours again

    I remember you
    You had a body
    You had hands and arms and legs and et cetera

    Stuck in a body
    stuck in a mind
    Stuck in one body
    Stuck in one mind for the rest of your life

    This is the rest of your life

    Why did God throw you down upon my head
    Making shock yellow light emit from my nostrils
    And smoke pour from my ears and my hair stand up on end
    I was fried alive and now I’m a target for next time
    Leviathan was powerful and inevitable
    I fell in love with my fate as it crushed me to death

    Oh God, let me see you one time, let me feel you one time
    Show me your power God, show me your power God
    Nacham

    Don’t get too impressed
    You might lose your breath
    Don’t predict your death
    Cause I like you the best

    Don’t you fall apart
    You might lose my heart
    You know I love your art

    The ocean washed over your grave
    The ocean washed open your grave

    He said, “Go out and stand on the mountain before the LORD, for the LORD is about to pass by.” Now there was a great wind, so strong that it was splitting mountains and breaking rocks in pieces before the LORD, but the LORD was not in the wind; and after the wind an earthquake, but the LORD was not in the earthquake; 12 and after the earthquake a fire, but the LORD was not in the fire; and after the fire a sound of sheer silence.

  10. Twin Fantasy (Those Boys)Lyrics

    Twin Fantasy (Those Boys)

    The show ain’t over
    They’ll keep on going
    They’ll keep on laughing
    And fucking around

    Off into the distance
    Those two brothers
    Those two lovers
    And their smooth cocked adventures

    They just want to be one
    Walk off into the sun
    They’re not kissing
    They’re not fucking
    They’re just having fun

    They were connected
    At the back of the head

    they got a conduit
    their minds are the same

    This ain’t the end
    We’ll see them again

    [This is the part of the song where Will gives up. He dissociates himself from his own romance until it becomes just a fantasy. This is not something that could happen to him; this is something that takes place only in his mind. But he blinks now, and shakes himself awake. He has rejoined society. Come, dear children, call no more. He has only lyrics now.]

    When I come back you’ll still be here
