Track Name: Load Up
Load up
It's time to take pot shots
At all the people who you might have been
I'm staging an intervention
You bring the tonic water
I'll bring the gin

Once you get it
You won't regret it
You learned your lesson, so try not to forget it
It takes an effort to appear this copacetic
Load up

Our algorithms know you better than you know yourself
I could give you a print-out
But it would be bad for business
And bad for your mental health

Once you get it
You won't regret it
You learned your lesson, so try not to forget it
It takes an effort to appear this copacetic
Load up

We're all curators
In a musty old museum called life
Inscribe your casket with your favorite sayings
So you can read them if you're buried alive

Once you get it
You won't regret it
You learned your lesson, so try not to forget it
It takes an effort to appear this copacetic

Track Name: Almost Left the House
Nothing in my fridge looks good to eat
Already strapped my shoes on my feet
Heart palpitation freaking me out
Yesterday I almost left the house

Day in, day out
Only thing I read
Hate and violence
On my Twitter feed
I'm too scared to go out in the street
This old house has everything I need

Bored of the reruns on the TV
Probably need some vitamin D
Panic attack brings crippling self-doubt
Yesterday I almost left the house

Day in, day out
Only thing I read
Hate and violence
On my Twitter feed
I'm too scared to go out in the street
This old house has everything I need

I searched for agoraphobia on Wikipedia

Yesterday I almost left the house
Track Name: Can't Remember
The snakes abhorred their limbless forms
Which couldn't climb the Rockies
They said, "We must find arms and legs"
On serpent walkie-talkies

I'm taking my bows and I'm catching the roses
Cutting my palms, but I don't even notice

I think that I might take a trip to Boone
Hit me up if things work out so soon
I've only been waiting here since June

The snakes walked off on borrowed legs
And headed up to Denver
Then something marvelous occurred
But I simply can't remember

I'm taking my bows and I'm catching the roses
Cutting my palms, but I don't even notice

I think that I might take a trip to Boone
Hit me up if things work out so soon
I've only been waiting here since June

Someone's praying for you to a God you don't believe in

I think that I might take a trip to Boone
Hit me up if things work out so soon
I've only been waiting here since June
