Mouthful 03:30 video
i can't explain how i came to be such a failure and then she said "i mean what's your name?" "my bad i must have misheard" take me away or i'll get me in your cellphone now please tell me would you walk away if i spoke only in quotes from 'her' with a mouthful of wine gums i killed myself and my lower half descended straight into hell and my top half rose up into the clouds, i'm still there and my friends they all picked their favourite half and they climbed up the neck of the nearest giraffe and they found me up there trying to open a can of last laughs some day that sweetheart will be mine pretty soon that sweetheart will be mine some day that sweetheart will be mine pretty soon that sweetheart will be mine i want to stay i want to stay i want to stay right here for now oh let me stay i want to stay oh let me stay i want to stay i want to stay i want to stay right here for now oh let me stay i want to stay i want to stay right here for now

hell for me is sitting on a beach surrounded by sounds of fit men playing with a vortex sand flies in my face like the sandman's ass when spiderman says "i forgive you" (when spiderman says "i forgive you") enough time has passed now we look like the cast of the last of the summerwine it's night time now, and i'm driving you home, and we're listening to bedbug 'lillies,' yea that's a cool song it's a cool song cause my friend you are worth the extra petrol you are worth the extra data you are worth the lunch i can't afford oh dude i'm like this with all my friends but can i come over and platonically play with your hair can i come over and platonically play with your hair

my good friends are kind to me but i still get nervous metaphysically and i move from person to object i am person and object we play dress up like mike and eleven in the upside down we are happy together and now you know we can't get out but you know we can't get out he's so much more financially stable than i can be but i can't explain what you mean to me and you know i care for you and you know i care for you in the next life i will work til i'm sore and i'll talk to the boy who comes into my store and i won't lose my train of thought he makes me lose my train of thought (skirts) never thought it'd be like this watching him wash his engine clean under the rubble he hid his trouble on tuesday my phone rang twice i didn't call back, not sure why i'll always love him can't always call him

i'm sorry i'm here it's late but i'm cold and i can't get my car on the road i feel at home here it's 10pm and i'm bored of reading communist blogs on my phone but there is a finite amount of me and this is such a fine night i love it when you come over to my house phone broke so then i go home in my sleep i was touched by the ghost of josh groban first hand account, my first band these cursed boy's thoughts, will my conservative friends understand how cold the winter evenings are now how warm the conversations and i can hear you breathing when i listen close but we should stop right now cause we can do it when you come over to my house we can do it when you come over to my house

Biology 04:16 video
logic comes from the heart logic comes from the heart when i met you my body clock reset back to the start logic comes from the brain logic comes from the brain when i met you my ideology crumbled in shame logic comes from the hands logic comes from the hands when i met you the universe reversed to the big bang logic comes from the feet logic comes from the feet when i met you all of new zealand sank into the sea when i met you water rushed in and i started to breathe

darling, oh i've a voice not made for mass consumption headphones can't quite conceal my sufjan impersonation the cable attracting interfering radiation are you able to forgive this ground hum, this ground but there is something wrong with me there is something wrong with me there is something wrong with me a little bit when you're not here my dear my dear when you're not here my dear my dear

i had sushi with my friend isaac and he had noodles and we talked some shit and i told him my love life and he told me his and he told me his luke’s up north, i’ll visit one day ruby’s in nelson, she’s got a nice place and christie is leaving, she’s good at screenprints she’s gone for nine months i met someone at a gig friday night the show went to 12 but we stay til 2 he told me his name and i told him mine and that i told him mine he gave me his number and i wrote it down and then he told me that he was soon leaving town we had to catch up again the next day or at least sometime before he went away so when i got home i sent him a text and asked him when i could go see him next but to my confusion it didn’t go through cause i think i misheard a digit or two i used up my data searching his name or at least a profile picture with his face and to my despair nothing came up but infatuation that i had saved up broke me it broke me
