Who R U? 03:35
Who are you and what are you worth? Who are you and what on earth? I came here to spit out smoke streams All my subjects come to breathe them in Oh oh, what a delicate demise I didn’t know they let your type in Goes to show how saccharine beauty can change you Even though you are a small thing I’ve dealt with smaller things My red carpet has a crown, knighted out the womb Remove your shoes before you kneel down To genuflect in front of the women I felt underground Say my name in vain every Sunday to save face You’re not clear of the charges yet Catch up to the grizzly nature Of my kingdom, hope vacations for days on End to escape a crumbling maison Cozy up to every warden Seven sins, no cash reward or free parking Even though it’s such a small thing Been offered smaller things My red carpet has a crown, knighted out the womb Remove your shoes before you kneel down To genuflect in front of the women I felt underground Say my name in vain every Sunday to save face Everybody here wants to be you You’re pretty, pale, undusted too The future’s dim for my doe-eyed friend Hopefully you’ll orbit again Give them what they want, give them what they want Give them what they want, give me what I want My red carpet has a crown, knighted out the womb Remove your shoes before you kneel down To genuflect in front of the women I felt underground Say my name in vain every Sunday to save face You’re not clear of the charges yet

Hercule 03:54
A party animal is just a stray dog in disguise I stay home, write lists of long lost lovers to pass the time Don’t read the classics ‘cause I’d have written them better Don’t fuck around with younger folks ‘cause bills are what make me wetter I tend to dress to display more flesh than cloth Everyone in the business knows that’s how you get to the top Before you sob and say your mellow is harshed I want you to know there’s a beat in my heart I’m every cliché of a villain there is But somebody out there is so much more than into it and I’m intimate with a boy named Hercule He teaches me truths that you’d never want to know I’m intimate with a boy whose cold blood turns me on Sometimes I make him cry but I think it’s all for show Every last one of my friends are scared for my health I beat her battered and bruised out of respect for myself I cut my teeth on the concept injustice is law Why cut your teeth on a concept when you can unhinge your jaw? Before you sob and say your mellow is harshed I want you to know there’s a beat in my heart I’m every cliché of a villain there is But somebody out there is so much more than into it and I’m intimate with a boy named Hercule He teaches me truths that you’d never want to know I’m intimate with a boy whose cold blood turns me on Sometimes I make him cry but I know he’s in control And here we go, I fell in love with someone who can’t comprehend A single human feeling, yeah my new boyfriend is of reptilian descent Oh woe is me, I got way too attached to some strange deity I think I’m going crazy, just trying to keep up with everybody No, I can’t keep up with anybody I’m intimate with a boy named Hercule He spat a pickup line in tongues and I was his I’m intimate with a boy who’s slightly vampiric He’s got a square jaw, Russian Red on his lips I’m intimate with a boy named Hercule He teaches me truths that you’d never want to know I’m intimate with a boy whose cold blood turns me on Sometimes I make him cry but no one has to know

Male Model 02:47
This is not a test I’m sending out a PS, SOS This is not a thank you But this could be a thank you I’m very well aware You never went through the training to handle All of my tantrums And late nights and breakthroughs and headaches and meltdowns You can’t talk to me that way My brother’s the prettiest boy on the block Christmas, we’ll go to Amsterdam Where the beer is cheap and so is talk I am such a fake I could have sworn "spawn of" was your first name Wasn’t on the test Will this be on a test? Every Sunday night I cry In front of a mirror to recognize I am still a golden god My sibling’s not a god You can’t talk to me that way My brother’s the prettiest boy on the block Christmas, we’ll go to Amsterdam Where the beer is cheap and so is talk I want you to know the parcel is on its way with a ribbon in back I want you to know my brother was a male model, isn’t that impressive? I want you to know the ribbon is on its way in the back of a parcel I want you to know you could never be a male model, you could never be a young boy You can’t talk to me that way My brother’s the prettiest boy on the block Christmas, we’ll go to Amsterdam Where the beer is cheap and so is talk

Pretty Void 03:31
I’m at a loss for words Please tell me things can’t get much worse The sky opened its mouth Only a pretty void came out I never said that the world was kind But that’s how it was read by the god divine And I can’t take it back Like I can’t get her back ‘Cause I tried If I acquired a sense of trust I’d trade it in Nothing is less useful to a heartless piece of skin These days I try to hide from The sun creeping through the blinds But nothing reminds me more of you than golden light A pretty void is nothing new A pretty boy is such bad news I want to be with you I want to be cut loose A pretty void is nothing new A pretty boy is such bad news I want to be with you I want to be cut loose from this Pretty void
