Track Name: america forever
america forever
my bones are set into this face
no way to betray it
no way to abandon this thing i've made
america forever

america forever
i wait for judgement like a good kid
the sunrise is coming
when we see the night for what it really is
america forever

america forever
entwined and rotting beneath our feet
the roots of a riot
that rages and rests in peace
america forever
Track Name: let me know (wild life)
(wild life)

i will accept the past
i will not try to go back
i am not ready to die
god i'm not ready to die

some people have found a way out
but i have only found a way down
oh god i don't want to die
drag me out of this wild life

drag me out of this wild life
Track Name: not mend
your backyard on my birthday
making sense of a child's grave
i never want to hear birds again
my spirit broke and it will not mend

there is no one left to trust
making sense of a mother's love
i never want to hear birds again
my spirit broke and it will not mend
Track Name: liquor store
how do i give in with grace?

i let my mind race until it made me crazy
dirty silver fingernails
digging down, turning up nothing

and there beneath everything
the flies i draw are too full to eat me
my mother is in a half way house
spiders eat their prey
from the inside out

how do i give in with grace?

i let my mind race until it made me crazy
kiss me in the liquor store
you can dry me out
before the storm
Track Name: judas in america
judas hung himself in america
vultures called to god to set him free
there's never been a church here in america
judas hung himself from a tree

judas took his paycheck to america
but there's no place to buy peace of mind
there's never been a church here in america
judas turned his wounds away from light

judas just flunked out of america
where does our shame go while we sleep?
there'll never be a church here in america
jesus died for judas
you, and me
Track Name: cherry high
im taking precious time
the serpent speaks all night
seven stars aligned
cherry, cherry high
angel wings burst out my spine
my tears will turn to wine
a blaze surrounds the shrine
cherry, cherry high
a cop car parked in the drive
let me be your wife
chewing on the rind
cherry, cherry high

a tongue that no one will speak
my inhibitions getting weak
the shattered mirror shines
cherry, cherry high
purple guts torn from a bird
have you read the word
of revelation 9
cherry cherry high
your forehead bears the sign
abaddon twists your life
the poison comes alive
cherry cherry high
Track Name: farrah abraham
fingers pressed against the veins in my wrist
habits shake down a falling star, that makes a wish

"if i could end the world, i would end the world"

my blood speaks to my brain, something's amiss
take me high, on your wings of listlessness

"if i could end the world, i would end the world"

farrah sings to see dead dreams come alive
in another life, maybe i'd have been your child

"if i could end the world, i would end the world"
Track Name: who did pull the pin of the people?
you could move a mountain
but where would it go?
into your bloodstream
or somewhere below?
you could move a mountain
but where would it go?
to the center of the earth
or somewhere below?

you could move a mountain
but where would it go?
into a moonlit basement
or somewhere below?
you could move a mountain
but where would it go?
into the heart of jesus
or somewhere below?

you could move a mountain
but you got to be sure
can you move a mountain
without getting hurt?
the answer is no
