Track Name: My World is a Desert
boots kick up dust on a gravel road
and the heat replaced its ghost
we're gonna shoot that sun out of the sky
my world is a desert

us dogs are bored and ugly and mean
splinters off of deadened bones
we can drown it all in blood and salt and oil
but there's no way out

there's no way out of this dry rot town

sun bleached, bone white
you couldn't teach me, so i learned to fight
the hand that feeds is the hand that beats me down
like the dog i am, like the dog i am

we're gonna shoot that sun out of the sky
beating us down our whole damn lives
my world is a desert
my world is a desert
my world is a desert
set it alight

there's no way out of this dry rot town
Track Name: Scalp You
ripped from her breast
no time to waste
fall in line
pick up the pace
this is the end of everything you've ever known and loved

tonight you meet your end
on this stinking killing floor
first you're splayed, and then they trim some more
they roll your body in a hole in the floor

packed in a jar
shoved in a can
stuffed in a tube
and into the van

the greatest education you will ever know
is given to you on this stinking killing floor
the line moves faster every day
isn't that the american way

all that money changing hands
we meet every demand
you don't fuck with this machine
they lick their fingers happily

packed in a jar
shoved in a can
stuffed in a tube
and into the van

tonight you meet your end
on this stinking killing floor
first you're splayed, and then they trim some more
more and more and more

packed in a jar
shoved in a can
stuffed in a tube
and into the van
Track Name: Feral
winter’s black banner flies over my life
i feel it crush into my mind
pass thru each day like it’s an unmarked grave
where do you go, girl without a name?
there is no glory in how I mourn you
the loss I feel deep in my heart
and all this rage, I can’t contain it
I cried enough tears to drown these plains

my free will leads me to my ruin
i can never seem to change my course
i am the parable
a savage animal
i’m a feral dog, i run, run, run

i’m leaving behind what i love most
a life so poisonous, minneapolis
lost my head again, drove you away again
but my fire’s what you love most
all this bullshit, i’ll never forget
baby this ain’t fun, fun, fun
fuck the rest, i do what i do best
i’m a feral dog, i run, run, run

my free will leads me to my ruin
i can never seem to change my course
i am the parable
a savage animal
i’m a feral dog, i run, run, run
Track Name: Black Beauty
a naive admission
he took her so close
whispered in her ears
the things a good girl wants to hear
he had her, he had her, he had her
he slipped off her clothes

a contradiction
the words so nice
by the time she realized
his tongue turned into a knife
he had her, he had her, he had her
he took her life

dead inside
no sense of pride
a shameful stride
black beauty bride

total submission
the eyes they stare
no bruises or a mark
words made fists into the dark
he killed her, he killed her, he killed her
she's not there

forgotten dreams
inner screams
eyes don't gleam
black beauty queen
Track Name: Jail Sex
copper, what do you want from me?
why won't you let me be?
your fascination is so obscene
an animal you've never seen
you wanna hold it against your skin
you wanna put it in its place
on the mantle in a jar
mount it's head against the wall

i mean everything to you
put your hands against the wall

i'll be your jail sex baby
and you'll be mine too
but just remember this baby
you ain't fit to lick my boots

i mean everything to you
put your hands against the wall
Track Name: Blackest Eye
i don't miss you
i didn't think it'd be so simple
just like tinder that takes to the flame
i cut you out of me just the same
now i'm losing my mind
it ain't a crime

you gave me the blackest eye

we were just fifteen when we first met
we were just fifteen and poorly bred
lifetime of too much
fucked up bad luck and poverty
there's gotta be something more than this
how did you ever end up like this?

you've got no one to blame but yourself

you're a crying shame
people laugh at your name
now i don't know you anymore
you got in trouble, can i come downtown?
but you ain't got no money, can i bail you out?
how did you end up like this?
yourself

you've got no one to blame but yourself
you gave me the blackest eye of my life
