looking at my phone in the bookstore when it appeared to me: rare footage never before seen by a significant girlfriend and i'm not gonna call innovation, but i'm not gonna call it anything else either thanks for the invite, but i'm too not going i work on forgetting today and every day i suck at something today and every day it looks like roadkill (and i mean in a good way) almost always, every day waiting in line at the juice bar when it occurred to me: i may be too fat to be Spider-Man but not to be Body Positive Spider-Man! all day i dream about self-improvement, capitalism, deregulation and eating a bagel thanks for the invite but i'm too not going i work on forgetting today and every day i suck at something today and every day it looks like roadkill (and i mean in a good way) almost always, every day S.T.O.P.

Crud 02:17
i keep a list of everyone's mistakes and it's getting long there's a new page in the menu of haters at this restaurant we all wondered what you thought! why don't you downgrade your review? there's no letter in the Health Code for this busboy sniffing glue you cut the cake you lick the knife you wipe away the crud of life killed myself with kindness then i panicked by myself i saw someone i admired i wasn't fine, why did i leave the house? is it fake fun that we are having? or an ad for being young? no one here was trying to get here where the cloudy water runs you cut the cake you lick the knife you wipe away the crud of life

Liar Island 03:36
i made a mess that's too big to clean up and i left it in the middle of the sea i'm waiting for it to sink to the bottom, i tried, i can't wish it away and who the hell am i keeping up appearances for when i'm crying on fire? how will i rearrange the time i waste? i won’t sleep today or ever i'm the last liar alive on liar island i'm the dad with my shirt tucked in and i'm putting a hashtag, an @ and an apostrophe in the middle of my name would you do me a favor and write "wash me" in the dust on my soul? i got less from 10 crystals healing sessions than i got from an hour of TV and i read somewhere that 12 gray hairs amounts to a serious disease now i’m gonna be a little condescending (that means i’m talking down to you) orange hair with a gray-green face, and no one too small to destroy i'm the last liar alive on liar island i'm the dad with my shirt tucked in and i'm putting a hashtag, an @ and an apostrophe in the middle of my name would you do me a favor and write "wash me" in the dust on my soul?
