All Human Long Beach, California

Track Name: And So Peter Dances
On a snowy street theres people singing songs of joy.
You spent your Christmas Eve without a wife, without a child...
No one. No love.
Do you feel alone?
Bet you feel alone?
You’ll always be alone.
No one. No love.
Did you make the grade?
Try and make the grade.
Didn’t make the grade...
Make your self sick. Make something.

Once again you find your sleep is slept alone, you’re sleeping in.
You tossed and turned last night, and there was no one there to complain.
No one. No love.
Did you make the bed?
Why make the bed?
You never make the bed...

Make your way home to find there's no home.

And on the birth of some forgotten dick in history there were no glasses clinking,
There was no one there to share a drink with.
No one. No love.
Did you drink alone?
Did you drink at home?
You always drink alone.

Once again you find your sleep is slept alone, you’re sleeping in.
You tossed and turned all night,
There was no one there to complain.
No one.
No love.
Did you make it to bed?
Did you drink in bed?
You gave the dog the bed...

Make your way home to find there's no home.
Track Name: Headless Friends
Off and on, in and out of trauma.
Prone or not.

By the time we reach you, you've no head so…

Like a dog in and out of traffic,
Losing limbs, laid out…

Don't get up.

Hung above the mantle of your father.
Your tongue has rotted out.

By the time we reach you, you've no head to speak of…
I believe we can get used to
Days where we lose the people we love.

Holding on to bodies that we borrowed,
You don't get to leave the lights on in a rental.

By the time we reach you, you've no head to speak of…
I believe we can get used to
Days where we lose
The people we love.

Don't get up.

By the time we reach you, you've no head to speak of…
I believe we can get used to
Headless friends
Who we wont speak of.
Track Name: Where's My Upslope?
Lose a limb,
Because it never reached far enough.
Give a hand,
Because it never held on to much.
Hell, give it all,
Because you won’t be around for long.
On second thought,
Go home and let it all add up.
Yeah, add it up.
Was it worth it now looking back?
Stack it up,
Make something you can show the kids.
There’s no kids,
Because you never really left the house.
Do you exist?
Because if you do then it's news to us.
Hang around,
Because you’re a decent piece of decor.
Hanging there,
We could never really ask for more.
You don’t stick out, an earthy tone, an off white. Grip the wall.
Close your eyes.
You’re not equipped for what happens next...
Pay attention,
Because that’s all that you can afford.
Give affection,
If you can spare it, then spare it all.
Skin to skin.
I bet you wonder what that feels like?!
You don’t fit in.
That’s ok, tuck your tail, and take a fucking hike.

You should leave town.
You could settle down.
Or just stay home and kill yourself.
You won’t miss out.
You should stay down.
Protect your ribs and count out.
Close your eyes and play dead.
You’ve always faked it.
You should leave town.
You could settle down.
Or just stay home and kill yourself.
You won’t miss out.
Track Name: Even the Dogs Stare
There’s a giving man making coin off selling your sister.
There’s a loving hand picking tics and fleas off your brother.

Even the dogs stare.

There’s a faithful man who absolves the faults and sins of your father.
(There’s a loving hand).
Shelter? Got it! Built one today.
Still my boots fill up with water.

Even the dogs stare.
Even the roach asks “how the hell did I get here?”

All you’ve got is bonfires burning inside your heart.

Don’t get up on behalf of this life. It suits you. It looks right.

I watched your whole deflate and the light in you just dissipate.

Even the dogs stare.
Even the roach asks “how the hell did I get here?!”

Even the dogs stare.
Track Name: A Healthy Fear of Women
We sometimes behave so strangely…

So you recognize I’m donkey, and think I ought to let it show.
Yeah, I could carry all your baggage, but I think ill let you go...
Being forced (or if stubborn, then I’m dragged).
Being down on all fours, well it feels like I was bred for this.

We sometimes behave so strangely.

So you think I hate my mother and I take it out on you?
I bet you’d like to turn the tables and take my teeth out with your boot...
I’ll like it because I know that I deserve it.
My diet consists of broken teeth and leather bits.

We sometimes behave so strangely.

After all this time, my queer behavior is revealed equine.
In the sweat and brine of this sordid life, its apparent where my guilt resides.
So, don’t deny that with my mass in tow you feel alive.

We all got used to boring sex, and disappointment from our dads.
Then things began to make us tick that we didn’t understand, and it made us sick.
So we sometimes behave so strangely.
Yeah, we sometimes behave so strangely.

(If I show up to your wedding with no lover at my side do I bring an air of sadness on a day reserved for joy?
Do your friends and loved ones point and judge as I drink more than my share?
Does it make more sense to not show up? Is it best if I’m not there?)
Track Name: Desert Fox Cubs Play Under a Sky Full of Stars
The soldiers came, bit my tongue.
What they want from me, what they want from me,
Isn't here.
I ran through the river.
Fingers numb.
What my father made, what they want from me, they won't find.

Dark trees, I fail to see in the night.
Moving through pines,
Alone I see in the light

Heavy Arms.
Pounding Heart.
All I feel, alone, I wake up...
Wake up...

Still Breathing, someone spoke to me.
..behind me sat a strange little man.
"In your realm, you are filled with all the strength to carry on"
Warrior. The path exists in you.
Warrior. The path can help you find.
Transcend, you cant fade away.
you can't fade away.
Transcend. You won't fade away.
you won't fade away.
Warrior. The path exists in you
Track Name: Night Swimmer (Camp Ohio)
All the dead children at the bottom of the lake,
Come alive and move around when the surface breaks.
You tried to dive for something shiny, and you caught your leg.
Your lungs were shaking and they still reverberate.
Track Name: I'm Afraid
I'm afraid i'll never leave this room
Could you be there to tell me thats not true?
Or just lie to to me, and get the blood back in to these lifeless limbs
Cause i cant swim
In stasis, so just replace me with a better one

I'm afraid i'll never see the world
A tree will sprout, and grow, then fall
And these four walls will be all that i know
None the wiser
To the demise of
Things I used to care about when I was young
I was better then
No concept of the messes men can make

I'm afraid tomorrow I will die
Without you there to look me in the eye
To validate me
For all the great things
That I meant to do
Track Name: Don't Come Home
“You don’t get on with people,
And you don’t think anyone could love you.
You don’t think much of anyone anyways”

There's a sadness in your eyes.
You didn’t used to look like that.
You don’t do much of smiling nowadays.

Don't be home for supper.
Don't be home for christmas.
Don't come home its over,
Please don’t call or write.

You don’t think that Jesus ever could forgive you.
You dont believe a sinner ever can be saved.

There's a longing in your eyes,
Like a dog about to be put down.
You don’t like to think about those types of things.

Don't be home for supper.
Don't be home for christmas.
Don't come home its over,
Please don’t call or write.

You've been so lovely,
On the worst of days.
I've been so horrid,
In so many different ways.
I'd say leave me here to wallow, and drink away my days.

You've been so kind,
Such a loving friend.
I've been so drunk,
So awfully God damned mean.
You say God broke the mold then threw it away after she made me.

You've always been there,
Endured my fits.
I've been so cruel.
Such a piece of shit.
It's only fitting, it would end this way.
Yeah, it's only fitting we'd end this way.
Track Name: Asleep on the Church Steps
All we are is pieces moving back and forth in a machine that churns out movement…

In the days when you were young, a queer machine in robes of color with radiant pink and purple thoughts.
It turns out movement just goes unnoticed.

I’ve been waiting for a cross to grow out of the ground aligning with your bones.

And so it goes just hold the kid over a fire. Show him hell.
And so it goes just hold the kid over a fire. Now throw him in.

In the days before your love, an oddity in a nervous summer with blatant anti social thoughts.
It turns out movement just goes unnoticed.

I’ve been waiting for a cross to grow.
Across display of self righteous repose.

And so it goes just hold the kid over a fire. Show him hell.
And so it goes just hold the kid over a fire. Now throw him in.

All we are is pieces moving back and forth, little cogs in a machine that churns out movement…
Track Name: Rogue Bee
Put me in a box.
Shake it up.
Paint the walls.
I’m a little bug.
Oh…
Big fish.
Little pond.
Toss me in the ocean.
Eaten up.
Have a sit.
Don’t talk.
Stupid kid.
You’re lost.
Find a cliff.
Jump off.
Find a hole.
Get off.
“God loves you.”
It’s written in the sand,
And half erased by the oceans hand.


Would I be safe wrapped in her waves without you?
Or tossed about? I'm upside down without you…
I’m pulled apart by vicious tides without you.
I’m reduced to sand without you.


Dead bird rotting on the shore,
So much to look forward to...
Right...?
Dear mom,
I know you said to pray.
Instead I think I’ll walk into the waves, ok?

Would I be safe wrapped in her waves without you?
Or tossed about? I'm upside down without you…
I’m pulled apart by vicious tides without you.
I’m reduced to sand without you.
Track Name: In a Pig
Forget the past as well as times,
That you were wrong.
In another life, you will make the same mistakes.
No path erased.

In the present you were learned,
Thus you thought.
In another life, you could right the wrongs you’d done.
Go against the odds.

And in the future, you’d forgot,
The lesson learned.
In another room, the great observer laughed at you.

Grab a strong drink,
And choke it down.
There's a martyr in your stomach now.

In this day and age your love,
Is wasted thought.
And in a room of fools, the drink it helps you feel as one of them.
You're the pig now.

And pretty pig, we’ll fat you up.
Bake you on high.
In the oven you’ll feel like you haven’t died in vain

I'll grab a strong drink,
To wash you down
There's a murder in my stomach now.

Your skin a rusty pink,
On rice of brown.
I do believe you make a grown man know his wealth

And in this day of,
Deep dark thinkers,
You're a simple man who let his mind go to waste.

Don't feel sad though.
You're not the only one.
There's so many pigs I cant wait to put down.
