This wouldn't have been possible without Daniel Felton, who recorded us and added more life to these songs. Thank you so much.

Atlee Hickerson mastered this. Thank you.

This is Jake typing and I miss my friends. Publishing this months after making it and I'm surprised we did this. Go us.

Track Name: House on Stilts
the cliffs we built out houses in
identities made of blood stained stone

protect us with a river
separate from their god
Track Name: Bitter Baby Boy
please forgive me
I'm sorry i don't want two dogs

please forgive me it makes my legs anxious
Track Name: Feel Good Machine
Cheyanne is a stupid name
lucky me, miss robot
coitus to aleph naught
Track Name: Water and Flowers (Olive Olives)
I thought i liked the lemonheads
i thought i like strawberries
but i don't, they're hard to eat
and i think that they hurt my teeth
and hurt my feelings
but i like
wate and flowers, olive olives
olive olives, water and flowers

i no longer wonder if our dogs will like each other
you can't make me climb trees
you can't make me climb at all
Track Name: Alabama in New Jersey
you make me feel okay
yea, alright
i don't know what to say

lying, no bed frame
lying no

I'm not the only one who feels alone
we're not the only ones who have to say goodbye
Track Name: Peep-Hole (gbv cover)
give me the cost of the albatross and wear it around your neck for size
but don't let it get you down,
i'm looking inside your house
you're house always looks so nice
your house always smells so nice
now we're twice as high laughing now the time is right ya know
and promise me not to leave
i'm looking inside your brain
and christ its a cluttered mess
i love you i must confess
