Track Name: Sing (or, New Sounds)
Behind locked doors I am giving you away.
I am feeling fine, I'm doing great.
And there are so many things that you think I should say.
Well, I won't say them.

Night came creeping in.
I couldn't tell one hour from the last, and that was fine.
But then your laughter fucking broke my mind in half.
I fell down to my knees, tore my clothes, cried aloud and said, "naked came I out of my mother's womb, and naked shall I return there. God has given and God has taken away, blessed be God's name."

I will receive what was promised, and I will celebrate with song and feasting.
I will receive what was promised, and I will sing all night, I won't sleep at all.
Track Name: Please
Please, please, please leave no traces.
No letters and no notes, no teeth against my throat.
And please take all of your clothes, I have a jacket of my own.
Would you please go home?
It's not that I regret the time that we have spent, I am just upset.
Would you please go home?
Would you please go home?
Would you please come home?
Would you please come home?
