Track Name: when you wake up
when you wake up
k i l l y o u r s e l f

when you’re making breakfast
k i l l y o u r s e l f

when you’re walking to school
k i l l y o u r s e l f

when you’re stressed
when you’re tired
when you’re hungry
when you’re taking a dump
when you’re playing skyrim
when you’re on a rollercoaster at disneyland
k i l l y o u r s e l f
Track Name: human beings hate human beings
human beings hate
human beings so much
people don’t understand or
people don’t want to understand

i hope they go
straight to hell
locked in a dark room
with the devil

a chasm
so absent of light
there is no way
out of that dark

nowhere in this room
does the light bend
a place of complete
separation from god

what is the point?
Track Name: doubt
like, what is the point?

it’s one thing to hurt someone
that you say you once loved
it happens in the passion
of the moment

but it’s a totally different thing
to torture them
for years
& years
& years

for purely selfish reasons—especially
when the establishment of that torture
was built on the basis of corruption

hanging
driving my car off a cliff
jumping off a cliff

i could take poison
i could slit my wrist
i could cut my throat
i could drown myself
( maybe )

i could fuck over everyone
who knows me & loves me
( maybe )

i could kill myself
for years
& years
& years
& years & years & years & years
& years & years & years & years
& years & years & years & years
& years & years & years & years
& years & years & years & years
& years & years & years & years
& years & years & years & years
& years & years & years & years

( maybe )
Track Name: everything everywhere
you know what?
fuck it all

the world sucks
it’s going to shit

maybe it’s ending in 2012
maybe jesus comin’

who cares?
all i know is that it sucks

the job that you hate
& never wanted in the first place
money that you never have enough of
poverty, war, & starvation—all the crap
that’s been going on for thousands of years

this world
S U C K S
everything

Track Name: ugly people
a lot of people call me ugly
& i think i am ugly
i’m always afraid
that people think
i’m too shy
i’m not cool enough
i’m not strong enough
i’m not outgoing enough
i don’t know
is it true?
am i?
am i ugly?
i think most people are ugly
r e a l l y ugly
things people say
things people do
are just really wrong
i mean
r e a l l y wrong
wrong

Track Name: last words
don’t kill yourself
don’t kill yourself
don’t kill yourself
don’t kill yourself
don’t kill yourself
don’t kill yourself
don’t kill yourself
don’t kill yourself
