This is that irreverent, unrespectable affirming messy trans music I have always wanted in my life. I read several wikipedia pages to make sense of the song Julius Caesar. I have no frame of reference for some of the science fiction landscapes ... I'm deep in someone else's free, unapologetically obsessive nerdy culture and it feels just like home. ❤️ 🚀🌌🤘😝 Favorite track: Julius Caesar.

NJ Melodies that get stuck in your head, lyrics that just HIT, unexpectedly lovely harmonies- Just absolute slappers from start to finish??? No Artist is the my top fave but frankly Marie Antoinette and Nonstop are CLOSE seconds. Favorite track: No Artist.

Nonstop 03:44
Blood on my guitar strings makes me feel so intense Only ‘cause my skin isn't as strong as human flesh I only have time to miss you when you're close enough to touch A-ha, are you in love with whatever seems to be going on? A-ha, I'll do no harm to a body bleeding out in the wrong A-ha, nonstop A-ha, a-ha, don't stop Everybody's dancing crazy like honey sped up I get so uneasy when weapons don’t exist Batesian optometry, cheap axes make me sick I'll kill the plot if I have to, if the hero swallows it up A-ha, are you in love with whatever seems to be going on? A-ha, I'll do no harm to a body bleeding out in the wrong A-ha, nonstop A-ha, a-ha, don't stop Everybody's dancing crazy like honey sped up Blood! Blood! Blood! Blood! Blood! Blood! Blood! Blood! Blood! Blood! Blood! Blood! Blood! Blood! Blood! Blood! Blood! Blood! Blood! Blood! Blood! Blood! Blood! Blood! Blood! Blood! Blood! Blood! Blood! Blood! Blood! Blood! Blood on my guitar strings Blood on my guitar strings Blood on my guitar

They call me Marie Antoinette ‘Cause my skin is pale, my rack is huge, and I don’t have a head I asked my lover how she learned to speak French She said it helps to have a mademoiselle lying in your bed They call me Cleopatra But I stay out of the sun and I can’t walk the Egyptian I met a boy who was achin’ for a fight ‘Til I taught him that his fists were far more useful in the night time They call me Mary, mother of Christ But my figure couldn’t forgive even a holy child My bedroom eyes are a force to behold So I’ll forget you brought me frankincense and gold Do you think I’m pretty? Could I be an actress, a bitch on the big screen? Do you think I’m clever? My ma always told me that I was her funniest kid I want to be The fleshy pink beacon of light girls think they can trust I want to be The older woman my kid’s friends want to fuck Oh woah-oh, woah-oh, woah-oh I try to be clean, I try to be clean I try to be clean, I try to be clean I try to be clean but clean’s not for me They call me Marie Antoinette ‘Cause my skin is pale, my rack is huge, and I don’t have a head

Julius Caesar died last night The throne is mine for the taking Julius Caesar died last night The throne is mine I’ve been waiting for years C’mon we can go get high When I’m not, it’s like I disappear Your heartbeat thaws when I mention his name It kills me to know I’m losing you again When the night rolls around all I can think about is the fact that There’s the fact that I’m just your broken appendage I’m glad my father isn’t here to see me now And then the fact that you sleep in My bed does nothing to console me Julius Caesar died last night But he is all but forgotten in your heart (It’s funny!) I’ve conquered all the empires but the only thing you want Is something I can’t give to you (Pathetic!) I’m still in love with someone who can’t fully understand What I once thought to be the only asset I would ever have I’m just your broken appendage I’m glad my father isn’t here to see me now And then the fact that you sleep in My bed does nothing to console me Julius Caesar died last night (oh) If I followed suit who could be surprised? (oh) ‘Cause Julius Caesar died last night (oh) Julius Caesar died last night (oh) But he is all but forgotten in your heart

Goth Fuck 04:08
That boy is the top of the earth He is freezing cold, I can’t see his worth But I want to use him, I want to use him He’s a killer king astronaut The way he bleeds in space makes me get so hot And I want to hurt him, I want him to like it All black All black everything Black cat crossing paths with my brain Too dark on this side of the moon we call home I want to be his home I want to be his home We don't talk about his past ‘Cause it’s a crow with teeth and a busted map and I I want to tell him nothing really matters He’s a rotten pear son of a bitch And I’m killing myself just to see him twitch And I want to make him smile when we’re alone All black All black everything Black cat crossing paths with my brain Too dark on this side of the moon we call home I want to be his home I want to be his home I love the way he takes off all the clothes he wears Like it’s something to be hated, he’s somebody to fear I love the way he takes off all the clothes he wears Like it’s something to be hated, he’s nobody to fear (God I got I got, God I got, got a goth fuck) Oh, oh, oh-oh-oh, oh (God I got I got, God I got, got a goth fuck) Oh, oh, oh-oh-oh, oh Oh, oh, oh-oh-oh, oh Oh, oh, oh-oh-oh, oh All black All black everything Black cat crossing paths with my brain Too dark on this side of the moon we call home I want to be his home I want to be his home

No Artist 03:05
I corner her in the back of the room I corner her in the bottom of my heart I say hello with the raise of my eyelids She says hello in the wake of her hips That girl in a black dress is all I need She says she’s no artist But she paints her lips the shade that I bleed Tell me: Will I be the one to break your heart tonight? Or will I be telling (My G-d!) the same old story? Why do I always fall for the fallen ones? Why do I always break for the broken ones? I promised myself I would roll with the punches Even if they left me dead by the side of the road It would be more than worth it To say I spent one night with you I could be an artist if you wanted me to
