Track Name: Tyrannosaurus
Me and this world are no longer on the same page
We haven't been for such a long time
Can't see more than three feet in front of me
I got some tea I'm finally ready to spill
Yeah I'm a goddamn dinosaur waiting for the kill
But I'm just swinging around indiscriminately

You and I are gonna have to clear up some room
There's not enough for both of us
If you wanna make an omelette you gotta break
A couple of eggs
I'm not myself without a problem I can't solve
Progress is slow but I'm in it for the long haul
I don't know, don't listen to me
I'm an idiot and I never know what the fuck I'm talking about

It's not like I know how to train it
And this is all I ever am
This is all it ever is
It's not like I know how to tame it
And this is all I ever am
This is all it ever is
Track Name: Know What You Are
If I could just go on the record
I got a couple complaints I'd like to register
Ignoring advice from my counsel
Not to rely on a shaky metaphor
I must be staging a coup
I already told you I'm coming for all of this
They must have gotten to you
And nobody told you
And nobody told you
And nobody

They've been staring at you with those heart shapes in their eyes
But I don't think they know what you are
Oooh, there's something about you
How did we get by without you?
I don't know how you don't know this
And I don't know how to help you
Cause I don't think you know what you are
I don't know what to tell you
No I don't know how to help you

If you were to take off the costume
You'd take one look at your phone and pitch it in a lake
Some awful tough talk coming from you
Preparing remarks about who I imitate
I've still got something to prove
I don't give a damn how heavy that statue is
Put up a little armor, too
And nobody told you
And nobody told you
And nobody

They've been staring at you with those heart shapes in their eyes
But I don't think they know what you are
Oooh, it's always about you
How did we get by without you?
I don't know how you don't know this
And I don't know how to help you
Cause I don't think you know what you are
I don't know what to tell you
No I don't know how to help you
Track Name: Blood and Bones
You deserve this
You are not to be trusted with nice things
You break them on purpose
When every other way's still not the right thing
You've got those hater blockers on
Nobody want it with you
You never have to feel bad
Because why would you?
You kiss your boyfriend with that mouth
And I'm the one who gets to think about it

And there's that dream again
You are never too quiet in my sleep
It must be on me, then
Cause I'm fucked up too and you've got receipts
I wish you'd just say it one time with your chest
But you finally got all you wanted and you've got no regrets

But I still feel it in my blood
In my blood
In my blood and my bones
I feel it in my blood
In my blood
In my blood and my bones
Track Name: All Night (Tyrannosaurus Pt. II)
I'm gonna be here for a little bit
I broke the lid
You're bout to see some shit
This feels irresponsible
Glutton for punishment
Sucker for ritual
I could do this all night
Another song, yeah
One more drink and cigarette
I could do this all night

I'm in the wind
You're gonna have to come find me
Bathed in blue light
It feels so much better
I'm almost there
Almost got it right
I've almost found it
I could do this all night

I could do this all night

I do this all night
Track Name: Fourth Quarter
I woke up in a different place
I'm not sure what to make of it
I don't know if it's a dream or one of those alternate realities
But you never went anywhere
I'm right where I belong
And I don't feel bad about anything anymore
Finally

It's warmer than it should be
I must have done the math right
I feel like I could have made this
We must be past the worst of it
I came back in the fourth quarter
It's just like the beginning
And I don't ever want to leave here
This must be the place

But just then the walls start to shake
And the whole place starts to fall apart
And now you're getting on a plane
And I think you know you're gonna break my heart
But I've done all of my research
And I know I've gotta wake up soon
But if everything they say is true
There must be a place where I still have you

And maybe someday I'll be...
And maybe someday I'll find you

But if everything they say is true
There must be a place where I still have you
Track Name: H-Bomb
I don't recognize this place
Do they even have a sun here?
The dark could swallow me whole
Has a hydrogen bomb just gone off?
I'm good
This is all fine
I never did find that place from any fucking terrible escapist song I wrote

I don't wanna be here anymore

Nothing here
Nothing feels familiar
Is there anybody else here
Or did we lose the campaign?
And I don't wanna hear the first thing about you
Not even your name
I'll just be up too late drinking way too heavy while it floats through my brain

I still don't recognize this place
Light the last candle
Try to see through the smoke
Am I all the way out of my goddamn mind?
I'm good
This is all fine
It's not like you're gonna find that peace in a melodramatic suicide note
Track Name: Shoot the Hostage
What -
What's all this now?
Are you goddamn kidding me?
I only left you alone for one second
How does something like this happen?
First of all, how dare you?
What kind of operation is this?
If you were half the person -
You gotta be goddamn kidding me

Lost the plot about right here
The irony does not escape me
You know it's only okay when you do it
I want some answers right now
Too much time on the back foot
Too many subs and sneak-disses
I swear I pick the worst hills to die on
God, am I lucky I'm so motherfucking gorgeous
Track Name: Reykjavik
I could leave in a minute
If you'd just let me get my things and go
Your fingerprints all over it tell me everything I don't want to know
I always thought I'd have more time
Things get to be longer and longer ago
What if my heart breaks right in half
And the weight of it seizes me by the throat?

I don't think there's any place safe for me anymore.

I don't think
