I finally found someone who wants to eat me but I don't want to be eaten but I want to be wanted to be eaten Am I asking for too much now? Tell me darling, truly I finally found someone who's got the equipment and they know how to use it but I'm not equipped to know how to be used by it Am I in for way too much now? Tell me darling, truly I finally found someone I want to eat me but I don't want them to think that I want them and only them to eat me CHORUS: Am I asking for too much? Am I in for way too much? Am I holding back too much? If I'm asking for too much If I'm in for way too much If I'm I holding back too much You'd tell me, right? I finally found someone who's gonna caramelize me and I won't lie that I don't care unless I care to be lied to I've always wanted way too much now I finally found someone who wants to be lied to but I don't want to lie but I need you to want to be lied to CHORUS I finally found someone who's gonna help me by helping themselves to a helping of me thereby having some of me on me

Brown Rice 04:08
B R O W N R I C E I've been running twice a day I eat only brown rice (just not after 8pm) My goals are clearer, you'd approve And in the bathroom mirror, I've come to look like you I no longer forget my garters at sleepovers And if I were to, I wouldn't come back for them Now if I truly fancy someone, I won't go blabbing I'm gonna keep 'em wanting and never having Looking back, you were wiser I wouldn't love the old me either Chorus: All this time spent bettering myself / has been so much better than had I been going on the dumb assumption that I was good enough I don't ask for pity from anyone, least of all myself 'Cause how could anyone get anything done by needing someone to love them So thanks for nothing, literally How was the last flame? Did you have a ball and are you as chagrinned as I am that I think of you at all Back to the first verse re: hallucination: the field blurs and whirrs but the train's not left the station Looking back, I was wiser to bum a light and flee the fire

Hey Been a long time since I've seen your face I was just about to ask "How've you been?" But before I could, You jumped in with a "Where are you living these days?" I said "I'm one block away from the J, a couple stops past the Williamsburg Bridge from Manhattan" and you said: "don't you find it odd that we all move to Brooklyn in the end?" Hey, this Big Apple's been had by worms It doesn't look all that tasty now So I guess you could say that this was my choice and I'll have you know It's not cause the rents were high They're actually higher here I pay for the distance from the advertising And you said: "Do you think that when we die, Our souls move to Brooklyn That our souls fly to Brooklyn That we all move to Brooklyn When we die?" Plus I heard your mom, she too moved to Brooklyn, and the word on the street is Wall Street's moving to Brooklyn, too Why? Because we all move to Brooklyn

Moonshine Melody Don’t rush to try to please me I’ve been dry long enough and I tell you another night won’t kill me All the little indications couldn’t protect me from the primitive thrill of a slow reveal When you and I stumble in closer, it only has the reverse effect Then you get brave and splash waves in my face While it might get us wet, it’ll only leave us with a kiss that I can’t do nothing with So go on and sing your moonshine melody somewhere else ‘cuz I won’t be pining by the dawn This duet could get too good for bootlegged harmonies, so bottle it up until the morn Bottle it up now What, have you been saving up your song For one drunk moment to waste it on? At any earlier hour, I wouldn’t’ve been sour Had it been by the terrace, I’d not’ve gone embarrassed Goddamned poor thing, god damn! What have you been waiting for all of this time? There was a time that I’d make do with a kiss that I can’t do nothing with So go on and sing your moonshine melody somewhere else ‘cuz I won’t be pining by the dawn This duet could get too good for bootlegged harmonies, so Bottle it up until the morn Bottle it up now Music and lyrics written by Natti Vogel Produced and arranged by Mike Tierney Recorded by Mike Tierney and Phil Weinrobe at Figure 8 Studios Mixed by Mike Tierney Mastered by Alan Silverman

Love for a Limited Time Only I’m just staid in the corner With the lines still stuck in the modem You got your hipster boys, they're so boned up with their gazes saying “I’m on fire” But does it get better? Now that the lights no longer shy away in the winter And is it worse than worse or for better? II you don’t know by now then I must be going, must go back To this same day of the last year I had counted the waves from the window Get down, sing it out, Louise, bowl ‘em over Cause this is Love for a Limited Time Only It’s always someone else’s mess That pays for our oasis now Kaufman pours us some coffees Miss Baker’s inventing fiancées I never know which one to pity When I’ve got a life supply and it runs so dear Would you be an angel? Hand me that pendant with the vintage dimple And tell me now: is that not a woman? If you don’t know by now I must be going, must go back To this same day of the last year I had counted a string of Octobers Get down, sing it out, Louise, bowl ‘em over ‘Cause this is Love for a Limited Time Only It’s always someone else’s mess that pays for our oasis now Her voice is thick, full of money, rich with melody Old money is full of dying leaves New money is sticky like the syrup from its trees…. But I’m still stuck in the bushes Reading the shapes in the windows Get down sing it out, Louisville is over Cause this was Love for a Limited Time Only It’s always someone else’s mess that pays for your oasis now
