This isn’t a date
It’s just a why to get my
This isn’t a date
It’s just a why to get my
This isn’t a date
It’s just a why to get my
Books back
This isn’t a date
It’s just a why to get my
This isn’t a date
It’s just a why to get my
This isn’t a date
It’s just a why to get my
Books back

Aldous is
Shaking his hips and his thighs
Underneath the twilight
Which will
Surely survive him in the end

His friends were last seen
Distributing
His record collection
Against the city streets

They’ll pause and claim that they’re not criminal
Just pensive and dismantling
Aldous stumbles home and finds them all unbearable
Brutes bruised and blessed in apathy

She dragged her fist across his lips
Imitating their first kiss

All he wants is a wife right now
And maybe just a glass of alcohol
To compensate
This late night haze
Gained from days awake
With his manifesto

Aldous’s girlfriend just broke up with him
For this retro kid named Maxwell Edison
But our boy will try to keep himself together

All he says he really needs
Is a Kennedy’s LP played twice its speed
It’s the only thing
Keeping our boy together

She dragged her fist across his lips
Imitating their first kiss

All he wants is a wife right now
And maybe just a glass of alcohol
To compensate
This late night haze
Gained from days awake
With his manifesto
All he wants is a wife right now
And maybe just a glass of alcohol
To compensate
This late night haze
Gained from days awake
With his manifesto

He drinks himself combustible
Full of liqour sick and sticking
Up for himself and what remains of his health
He hears
She kisses like a cannibal
So watch your mouth man
Watch your mouth
Use protection or else
She’ll tear your fucking tongue out

Aldous breaks in through this break down
He tears apart our tape machine
He demands our leering sympathy
He asks me for a way out

He’s shouting incoherently
Regarding massacred monogamy
He thinks vermicious and simplistic
As he begs me for a way out
