    We found a bunch of the white LPs after we thought we had sold out! These are fun. Put one on your turntable for the listening of musical recorded note sounds. Earlier John had said these are Orange but he's dumb and didn't look at all the records. To be fair the records weren't labelled with the color of vinyl. Whatever

Boss Level 03:38
If you ride a horse you better carry a gun you know the words then you should all sing along Your an angel
head to the suburbs where the income is salt a wall of history for keeping them hounds out I got a secret i got a secret Kicked right out of hideouts he had a brain that was built inside of four square walls chewing on plastic teeth getting bigger Spread some salt into that wound Cause theres an invitation you've been waiting so long for there will conversations there will be blood in the kitchen tonight so honey bring in your brass band a telegram with intention i saw the robbers of your face appear in the bathroom window were playing saxophones out in the front lawn and in the bathroom stalls there keeping there signs out and with two statues yeah we got room up there to move i know ten people who know ten more heavens got a heater heavens got a heater Your a background horse
Birds 04:39
living it up in an apartment living it up by a convenient store it was thorn in my side it was a thorn it was a carpenters line it was a thorn deliver me i want to see your hands deliver me from a sea of questions do you like birds do you like real big birds do you like great big birds this is the biggest bird i've ever seen the biggest building brought me down on my knees the wolves were spreading on the island you change your life around add verbs to everything cover your head when there is action i woke up stumbling still staring at my shoes the devil lay across my bedspread your friends are kings and queens and there headin for the noose they'll hang like gamefish by the morning buy a new shirt buy some new shoes and a new jacket way out west they build elevators they build relationships there filling up empty boxes and 1000 drummers playing 1000 songs saying 1000 rights equal 1000 wrongs don't you sharpen your teeth and your wits on children you need some answers well you already got em this is a harbor of boats and there aren't any sailors this is a forest of snipers and theres not any cover
My legs were made of wood you kept the ground real warm you kept my spirits up when they were gone but i'm a half made man a shelter from the storm you slow my heart rate down and shelter me from harm I got that fire inside my soul down to my feet it keeps me going all threw my town and down dirt roads i got that fire inside my soul forget your guns and your ammo we need nails bring your hammers girl if you give up they'll crucify this town like a drum in the basement when that bass and that snare hits girl if you give up they'll sanctify us now i dont wanna build temples (you got to) like a preacher facing pulpit or a group of school kids laughing in the face of every master clap your hands
Your a crow or a lion Your a helicopter pilot pushing crows for food pushin crows for food as you come walking over like an angel on the water walking without shoes walking without shoes were like two fisherman crossing there lines were coming up on mysterious times she had a honda 1989 were coming up on mysterious times and our hearts are divided lets keep em locked up in cages keep your stocks and your barrels clean hide your handshakes and smiles we need boots for the marching we need to keep those soldiers mean i built cities in the mouths of lions i pushed hell from where it came i put towns inside tornados even satan knows my name and girl you have been a picture and girl you have been a saint
doctors and the lawyers or the business men keep me crawling on the floor with my head in my hands like a rhino on the street touching everyone or like a tiger cub fire up those chariots and give those children guns moving like cattle on the living room floor 1000 stories baby just to say 1 word teeth are like razors cutting rugs death to the people in windows jumping jumping all gonna feel alright when they get the fire and water together and working gonna feel alright its alright yeah Take me to the hospital i feel alright tied up like a cat on chains that's been keeping me up all night running rabid like a rat racing in a maze eatin and drinking walk to work walk to work in a self made daze wearing my shoes out
UP UP UP 04:40
Put it up up up get your luggage in the trunk these aren't fingers they aren't snakes that make a sound building houses out of bricks line them up up in the sticks when you loose then you loose it and it's gone up up up born like business men wearing ties like shaking hands holding contracts in there teeth like alley dogs like an argument like a credit card strung up in the back separated by and frustrated by arguments just like credit cards strung up in the back antelopes in back building to fingers fingers to floors calling to cancel canceling calls dog eats the man man eats the dog first you get what you want then it's gone
Theres a car on the side of the road burning slowly like a candle like a candle in the night shedding light in the room where you sit where you sit on the phone reading books while your talking to your family to your family and your friends about the boy that your hitting on and i want to be in the car when you drive to work and i want to be in your heart when you go to sleep and i want to be on the couch when you watch tv baby ill cook for you baby ill clean But i was born a cannibal not like any cannibal you've seen before son of a working man son of a salesman of car sales
