The last PS Eliot shows are tonight in Brooklyn and Death by Audio and tomorrow night at The Alamo in New Brunswick. Swearin’ is playing tomorrow too so come if you’re around. We’ll probably all cry and drink too much. 

lyrics

Sooo these are the lyrics to the songs I sing. I wrote the words to all but Irrational and Subterranean. Those we’re written by my sister, Katie. I’ll post the lyrics to Crashin once I get them from Kyle. 

Irrational

We’ve got problems/yeah I’ve got my share

Panic and Privilege/ senses to impair

and I left you there for good/ just like I told you that I would

count to ten in stagnant streetlight/ you can drag me as far as you’d like

but you can’t make me love you back/ and you can’t make me react

and this quandry that we create/you can exhale or suffocate

and in text books/dictionaries/its described as Irrational

my volition now resolutes/ stab at upset I won’t let you

and what we did on the night we met is now something that I regret

when it boils down to tiny vices you were left to your own devices

you chronically cross the line/and our petulance is intertwined

but you won’t win, its not a game/and aggression is spread in shame

and in old songs/ friends advice/ its described as Irrational

Kenosha:

Place me precariously/ skinned knee/ I want to leave

you’re a figment/ you’re damn near malignant/ a dog tracking mud on the floor

black spine/ what’s yours becomes mine/ yawning or you’re breathing heavy

you’re flighty/ you are stuck inside of me and I got a whole lot to say

I hope you like Kenosha so much you stay there

Invasive/ I’m losing my patience/ see yourself on a TV screen or in magazines

I’d buy you a drink if I thought you were worth it or had a redeeming quality

Swinging from a double-henge/ meet up with your friends from college/

and think about me when you see her/ but I’ll be in Milwaukee on the last day of the summer. 

Subterranean

We are vast/ white linen, sky above

your voice carries/my ears just ring

over again I nest on blank paper/ your voice carries and I can’t think

content/reading lips/ you eject/ and I desist in cold blood/cold kiss

virile static/ my thoughts are dripping wet/

admitted praise or an electric shock/ over again I nest on the hardwood floor and my bare skull is hard as a rock

content/nodding heads your boundless and I’m braindead/ you glorify/ go ahead

we meet up in big cement swimming pools/ but I plug up both of my ears/ we are vast white linen, sky above

dead leaves at bottom/ I’ll just lie here

Snag

Chronically deplete me/ Coffee to wake up, beer to go to sleep/live your life fraudulently/ while i move quickly/ I move cleverly 

Snag it now/ you’re wretched and proud/ count me out 

Abstain from coming down/ while I sleep on floors to get out of this town/ I will move transcendentally/ forget all about you and forget this place 

say you love me/ can’t see straight/ while I go to work to go on a break

What a Dump:

Black coffee/ flake off your rough hands/hide out/ sweeping pennies in to dust pans/ I feel vulgar/ I feel like I’m in heat when I’m terrified of walking down/ my own street 

I will holler and I will shake/ but I could never retaliate/ in a manner that would equate/ your wrong with my hate 

One of my sisters’ thinks I’m self-estranged/ the other thinks I’m mean like a snake and I’ll never change/ I think its plain but could you blame me/ living in this shitty stuck-up city 

Being pretty is infinite/ but being angry is real important/ and I will die before I’ll give in 

Run away, run away, you better run away
