Track Name: egg (driving song)
i tell you things to tell myself
i bite yr lip if i'm not sleeping well
that won't help i guess i know
i'll bide my time with videos

i drive you home and flash my brights
my eyes are eggs with uncooked whites
i broke the yolk on my way home
it turns my face a warm yellow

i'm calling from the car
i'm thinking of you darling

and i'll write songs about my flaws
cause that's a way to self absolve
you think that's fucked you told me so
i always paint a charming glow

i'm calling from the car
i'm thinking of you darling
i'm sorry for what i said and didn't say
you know my name if you're coming back this way
Track Name: chili
i saved some money for my baby
i ate the chili like i'm supposed to
i took my baby out a dancing
i did my thing and held her hand

i got moves when i wanna
it's ok to feel ok i know b/c i mostly feel ok

yr lease is in a different city
and yr apartment's small and bright
i try to visit every weekend
and in the car i keep my knees bent

i will move when i wanna
it's ok to feel like barfing i know b/c i mostly taste acid
Track Name: please relax
i make a list of good sounds
i repeat them to calm down
ten pins struck down, and saliva in yr mouth
i watch the sound, i like the sound

i find a list of covered costs
and i chew the gum you bought
i crest the hill and see elizabeth spewing smoke
i'm almost home

i hated everyone that you wanted
i hated them for you
and when you woke up, spitting drink sick
i hated that one too
