All Lyrics by PILL 2018

 

TV Wedding

Got married on the television,
A slow montage of every text we ever shared,
Pixelized cranes suspended in air.

Live broadcast of our burning missile,
Through the shadow of this despair.

Isn’t it incredible that two people could find themselves
Amidst so much ruin and so much wrong?
Walking down the aisle into your living room
Against the sirens and snow-falling bombs.

Live broadcast of our burning missile,
Through the shadow of this despair.

Hotline

I would do anything for that fingernail
(On the tip of…)

Oh, you wanna touch me where?
No, I’m younger than that.
How old do you think I am?

Oh, you’ve got me all wrong,
I know I look better in a convertible.
I’m just another California Blonde.

A California Blonde
Skinny dipping in a neon pool of dreams;
With the lights out.

Daddy always said:
Don’t go swimming in the deep end.
But you taught me life was
bigger than a Jacuzzi,
It’s an Infinity Pool.

But you taught me life was
Bigger than a Jacuzzi;
I’m a 1-800-INDIVIDUAL.

A California Blonde
Skinny dipping in a neon pool of dreams;
With the lights out.

Misty Eyed Porno Reader

Are you keeping my feelings and my body safe?
I think this is an opportunity for you to learn to be more flexible.

Do you want to date other people?
The third party is never sorry.

Oh no but that’s alright-
You’re just my misty-eyed porno reader.

Personality Flaw

Personality Flaw – My personal draw
I’ll always want more,
I’ll always want everything.
The Most Fun.
War – my refuge.

Personality Flaw – Our personal draw.
We’ll always want more,
We’ll always want everything.
We’re so good at curating ourselves.
War – our refuge.

You’d always save yourself first.
I don’t wanna sink into your self indulgence,
I won’t ever sleep until you fall.

Are you willing to submit beyond your sense of self?
What are you willing to give to be turned on?

Psychic Nipple

Por mi, por mi casa, y lo que quiero saber.
Por mi, por mi casa, y lo que quiero saber.

Say you don’t like it here and prefer the South.
Ivory skin, timid mouth.

Angel dust encrusted eyes – tongue out –
THIRD PENETRATION.
The organizers are out to lunch
So pick up all of those presents for your piggy feast.

Pretty, I want it…

Oh, I. One is home…

Psychedelic Nippled Priestess delivers the milk for free.
Drained and relieved. Drained and relieved.
Privilege is a warm body that loves you.

AA2:
Wanna kiss your face,
but I have too many pre-existing,
contractual obligations.

Empathizer (Rat in the Box):
Baby wait – wait for nobody!
Nobody’s good enough;
Compromise nothing.

Baby wait – wait for nobody!
What do I want?
Somebody who’s worth something.

Keep the rat in the box
Keep the rat in the box

I am the empathizer,
People pleasing manipulator.
There was that time that i saw you as my protector,
but you give nothing

So I bleed and bleed,
eager to please and please.

Keep the rat in the box
Keep the rat in the box

Is that all there is?

Afraid of the Mirror:

Afraid of the mirror.
Deliver the mirror.

Muted by context,
but context is content.
Political optics!

Afraid of the mirror.
Deliver the mirror.

What would you do?
Object the image?

Looking at you,
looking at me,
looking a you.

I carry it with me.
Too hard to let go.

-Interconnected –

Don’t say no,
cuz’ everyone’s agreed.

Afraid of the mirror.
Deliver the mirror.

Scared Away:

In this world it must seem
that there’s nothing but blind chaos.
We take strength where order fails.
We take strength where order falls.

In my dream we never get to talk,
but I’ve read all about you –
a boy wrapped in pink chiffon.

Scared away,
but i can’t fight it myself.

And so it seems we’ve misunderstood the joke,
but I never thought you were funny anyway.

We sink to swim.
We climb to fall.
Unleash your best,
but we’ll laugh this time around.

And so it seems we’ve misunderstood the joke,
but I never thought you were funny anyway.
We take strength when order falls,
We’re going to laugh when you tell it to our face

I think you’ve got it!
I think you’ve got it!

Scared away – Scared away.
Forced to remove the stain ourselves.

Side Eye:

Keep it coming, keep it moving, don’t roll it back.
Keep it coming, keep on moving, keep on scratching,
don’t roll it back.

Im coming at this blind,
but no – I’m no pinochio, no!
Just a real piece of work.

<<FIGURE IT OUT, GIRL>>

Keep it coming, keep it moving, don’t roll it back.
Keep it coming, keep on moving, keep on scratching,
don’t roll it back.

They’re going to try to not let you.
Just be very persuasive.

<<FIGURE IT OUT, GIRL>>

Self sabotage? But maybe I’m not made that way.
You say it’s self sabotage, but baby I’m not made that way!

<<FIGURE IT OUT, GIRL>>

Piña Queen:

I know she can do it.
She’s been photographed.

She’ll take the banana and mango,
and she will make you eat it.

Piña Queen <3 <3 <3

How much fruit can you balance?
Piña Queen?

Who does her hair?
Round locks falling over her royal body.

How much fruit can you balance?
Piña Queen?

She’ll get all the boys and girls and make them fall in love with her
and take them into a pineapple cocktail.

Oh what a dream!
Piña Queen <3 <3 <3
