Track Name: Stock Footage
The rats! The rats! The rats will follow you -
those white teeth on blue
Through the claws, through the night
old lovers that you hide

To bite to pine to sail
rip the skin from my nails
The illness will never pass
The fever will never break
Track Name: Chocolate for Breakfast
I will be a wreck when you leave me
Though my darling, this you already know
I would rather die young than grow old without you
I’ll gain so much weight when you go

I’ll eat chocolate for breakfast everyday
I’ll keep on eating until the dogs have run away

This song is not meant to offend you
It’s a heavy-handed compliment
Though my darling when you leave, ill be too pathetic to move
They’ll knock down the walls to get me out

and I’ll eat chocolate for breakfast everyday
I’ll keep on eating until the wolves have run away

I’ll eat chocolate for breakfast everyday
Track Name: As a Kid (Ms Mack)
I’m a lone wolf
I do my thing
but it’s just an act

In the 90’s
I turn to mercury
and slip away

As a kid I knew too much
As a kid I knew no more than
a kid
As a kid, where once I was
As a kid, but a kid -
I am no more
Track Name: Fear [w/Aphir]
What you have feared
It lives right under here
Where the sound of god
Is too weak to be heard
(far off from the coast
and the holy ghost)
