Evan Lord After listening to this record honestly a thousand times, I love it to pieces back and fourth it shows up in my cd player and should be in everyone elses as well, originally little short guy was my favorite and it still very much is but, after you listen to the record a couple hundred times he was our boy takes the top. Favorite track: he was our boy.

swol 03:00
Swol mouth full of teeth already loosened up by plague and junior high bully for you seedless all the way through his arms and blood warm snout after the party he went home and killed everyone on the couch just for being home bully for you chased them all the way through his charming heated house lucky guess with forceps boy you’ve got it what they like to call it: a swollen asymmetry no love for this fucking prescription you scrawled on me grow up growing out at the angles you wished on me help me if you wanna help me you should keep me healthy till its dark thanks for your support and you bleed it through, every day you do once you’ve said it straight there’s no accolade
spank jail 03:28
yesterday she tried to kill herself, and today she’s a little bit under the weather now do you have any idea just how bad you were being? hold me down, five years after the fact coppin’ out, want no part of that, locked she’ll be a cop when she gets old enough she’s gonna be shoot me a cop shoot me a cop when she gets salty she’s gonna be you’ve been so bad gonna take you to spank jail how do bad things happen to good people if there aren’t any you brought this on yourself
begin probe 02:42
caught our first fish just to watch it wriggle guts and gills and dollar bills to catch all of the useless parts fifth high school reunion we had a chance to catch up glad to see you’re doin well still can’t wash off that smell begin probe, where’s it go? You should know up the rear, you’re on a roll, and it feels so good just dropped by to see if your resolve is as weak as mine no surprise, first class got the ticket away from me we get better but you know it’s a trick no contestant when you don’t give a shit about it I’ll make it one more minute if it’s the last thing I do who said there would be no harm in saying that to you
prostrated on the grave and hope approval lies beneath sucking on all the days we always tried to keep knotted like tentacles that stick and take the souvenir of texture sip on blood from a loyal hound but I’ll never make you dry one time I had someone who knew exactly what I wanted to be fell down and hit my head on an inch of foam and bled right out
we were raised to hold your hair back no one said to leave the roots in bullshit, I can entertain myself play with all of my new crayons write it on the grave, “thanks for being very very short”
check the yard for spots I missed they’re clumping off and odorless you find examples all the time catch me at the scene of the crime and toe the line coddled, fuck off dying for my neighborhood I’m grooving on your neighborhood we plumb the depths of four square miles for something we don’t know yet hows it feel to know that? Hows it feel with success? Don’t answer that chuck the card that bore the number, tear it up now torn asunder turn away and turn and ask the audience are you having fun? don’t answer that
zones 02:12
its not what you think, only what it looks like too terse when i drink, you like those longwinded types puffing out their chests, talking circles round our eyes mapping out their bodies in erogenous zones bloody hands in pockets c'mon everyone knows don't be too hard on your parents they really tried don't curse while you eat, it is unbecoming i said trick or treat and you left me with something else
sternum 03:00
when you carried me over the threshold to the room where we got tired and bold you held my hand up to your sternum never learned how to talk to someone new, but I guess that is an acquired truth so I’ll meet you down around the bakesale let’s hear it for the things we did. Did you forget about it cold cocked and shaking like a fist till we grow around it stupid bus to a stupid place all the miles between these nervous guts that won’t cover the cost of my misconduct better watch out cause I’m on fire
dental tools across the floor lie inert and flecked with blood I see, and you’re humming while you wait they call you up and mispronounce your name so it’s all the sweeter he was our boy, now he’s a dentist, our little champion now spit, go wash your face your next appointment is in four months’ time he was our boy now he’s a dentist our little champion our big mistake what did we ever do? Raised him right paid him attention how many times can he stop? How many days how many months? stop.
