1.
We drove by a vigil for a kid that died too young it was New Years’ week and in the spirit of we said we’ll live for the East Lake boy that crashed his car that night then I said something dumb like the Redskins hate the Cowboys because Kennedy died in Dallas I used to feel guilt all of the time now I just feel guilt not feeling guilty enough

Great Apes 03:30
Do you do what you believe in and believe in what you do? the only time that I never waste is time that I’m with you if I go before you cut the zipper from my shirt and make a blanket for your girl and tell her it’s from the store horizontal at home now feuding in the store again riding out some psychotropics in the shadow of the World Trade trying hard to understand the culture in my face back in the shoes of the ghost I was running fast through the jungle home like Tim Robbins in Jacob’s Ladder horizontal at home now feuding in the store again you don’t think you do less now what you do used to mean much more to you
3.
Broke On 04:28
Theodore Roosevelt was on my TV looking through the window at the Hudson Valley he said if you don’t stop moving you will never feel bad so I hung an envelope on my wall that says ‘P.M.A’ ride your bike through Oldster driving in your dad’s car taking candid pictures where the widows spend their days at the sweepstake cafes you’ll hear about the war and know it’s not yours then dedicate yourself to the stones, the ones you broke on you only say ‘no’ that’s how you get your way you say stupid things to get attention why would you have a kid when the city you live in will be under water soon? at a time when eyes happen to be open you’ve got to think small you’ll hear about the war and know it’s not yours then dedicate yourself to the stones, the ones you broke on

There’s a big old clock standing above the door at Smolenski’s funeral home your babe was a rolling stone that came to a rest and gathered no moss covered in soot, bouncing across another bridge he burned I’m glad that you’re happy now in Connecticut we talked the other night and I could tell you’d had enough of it but what I really wanted to say is I love you for the way you leaned into the changes in your life you are my hummingbird if there’s some truth to be known, it’ll be known in the end we tolerate each others’ lies my nails keep growing I get busy and I forget to cut them I’ve got a dad’s breathFrom cheap beer and cigarettes but what I really wanted to say is that I love you for the way you leaned into the changes in your life you are mine’ you are the beauty queen now lick your talons clean you are the beauty queen and you left piss on the seat

A physicist and priest were cutting up in a room when the ghost walked in and sucked the air out of the room they said ‘are you friendly? are you foe? what can you confidently tell us you even really know? ’he said he got up early and worked all day came back home and slept his life away choices dwindled and the daylight dimmed but he got right up and lived the nightmare all over again I haven’t figured it out yet you assumed a good boy would just take it on the chin get right up and do it over again because you need a good boy to just take it on the chin but he said ‘There’s no war that’s left to win’ and on my headstone it should’ve said: ‘had a long life but never had a chance to live’ keep your eyes on your smart phone while we circle the same drain good guys with guns are digging ditches in cap and gown and American Idols are engineering the perfect moment they heard gatekeepers hate cold calls but I’ve been wrong, I’ve done awful things and embarrassed myself, I’ve let my people down But I wanna be good it’s ok there’s no future for us, I wanna be good it’s ok that our time is a camera flash in a stadium where this useless game is played again and again and again and again
6.
Good times sneak and fleet your friends wanna spend some time with you tonight meet up at a bar where someone knows about your sign they said when you were born the stars smiled calm down and put your phone down

Albert Ross 04:43
We hurt each other so much I still wonder why it never worked I wasted time I should have been carefree unload your woe on me nobody thinks they’ll wither I thought you didn’t care but I guess you did a flower bed gave away your hiding space you saw the doctor so much he said go and see somebody else you don’t have to be so far away if you wanna leave that’ll be alright I’ll still be out here on my own I really don’t mind the time alone I dreamed about you last night you were sweet but you were sick you drink your dad’s hangover now a flower bed gave away your hiding space I wasted time that should’ve been carefree my whole life I wished I died bravely a flower bed gave away your hiding space

Watching ‘When Ghosts Attack’ alone a Maryland ghost destroys a home I was impatient for the cold now it looks like it’s gonna snow there was nothing to show I ate an apple in the shade of a tree that Roosevelt had raised I took Taconic Parkway then washed my hands with Hibiclens there was nothing to show progress in another town making plans to brag about pleading for some tolerance while you yourself, intolerant you’ve got nothing to show
9.
I used to bend the will of rivers and send them flooding into fields where delicate things grew I never noticed above dark rain clouds like bruises in the sky I kept my eye on the prize I ground down to the gum milky young teeth at the bit my whole world was in my room playing both sides of a Magic game black vs. green and bootleg Maxell tape of Queen some wooden animals and lockets of wheat and a string of garlic hanging from my ceiling to keep Dracula away I never saw him anyway that’s good enough for me because I’m always wrong before I’m right
10.
I wake up covered in seeds when the song ends I’ll laugh nervously I used to be small but I could pace a hole through the floor I’ve got a bad feeling about the world you’re cultured and cursed with dated ideas about what it means to have American Dreams you’re hanging onto the world that already moved yes I am embarrassed to be here I wonder if the next mass shooting will be near if God tells me to keep the flock safe I’ll keep a gun loaded with the safety off just in case I used to be small
11.
You said ‘calm down honey and sit real still if it’s that important you don’t have to yell’ when I said ‘calm down honey and sit real still I can hear in your voice you’re not feeling well’ you said ‘I’m at the beach where the low flying planes shake the shells beneath my feet’ you woke up suddenly at 5 AM your mattress on the floor, you called your brother screaming about your taxes this year and if you were going to jail he said go back to sleep and talk about it in the morning you’ve made a life out of worrying you have trouble doing the right things the right way I’m humbled when a friendship ends when you’re young everything’s out of reach then everything falls short I woke up dreamin’ about the corn at Antietam then I laid and thought that we haven’t talked in a long time when I was with you I mostly just felt alright we just can’t square growing up now I’m a lost ball in your tall grass and when clean blood work don’t excite just like it should this better get fun soon on 9/11 your mom took you to see Legally Blonde she covered eyes and we just want to know that you’re alright
