Discipline Soup

by Caley Conway and the Lucy Cukes

Bye Bye Bye 04:25
I won't miss you, but it might be a bitch of a bye-bye I won't miss you but I will seek your speech and style from those in later life and my new friends, they won't be anybody's old fool they'd be blind not to try to emulate you, babe, to a T and I'll believe I'll have all the good company I need they will come litter love all over me mean to tell me heaven's hands have already held me? so you're saying if I angle my praying just right, aim and fire, that i'll be opened, turned-toward and ready for the jolt of the electric present moment? Are you trying to imply I'll be buzzed for days on a sunset high? But who will I get a rise out of now? Who, among every heaven in this head of mine, will I cross town to find? Will I cross town to find out? Will I cross town to drive out of my eyesight, and out of mind? Bye, bye, bye.

In leaving each other alone we do several things at once For instance This song, existing, written and whole I only snatched it from the thirty some or so that flickered the most And I sold it You figure out that you have a fever Believe in God, for he gave you your own thoughts to use Run for the fruits of your long term labor I'm scared to die but I think it is my job and it pays to move forward But in the stillness in my head There lives a carpeted floor and a pink chair I don't know whose Grandmother's it was I don't know who's in there tuning my instrument For me For the pie pieces of the pie piece table And I don't know who's out calling me from the mass of you And I can't do nothing in that house but fill with music For all the good I'd be busy doing, dizzy, ruining the day
I was having a most difficult time trying to explain myself to the president of mental health on how we station tissue boxes all around our house in case something comes leaking out in case the word you meant to use to try to reorganize the truth it wasn’t something we could talk about hows this for relatable, piled up, and aborted nonsense? those mangled babies on your conscience probably got more confidence so this is my poetic way for saying you’re defected i find you defected I’ve spent a countless sum of hours in a cubicle in a tower believing that god was on a telephone call and I'd transcribe his wisdom through the wire you know you couldn’t have risen up much higher O helpless fetus! Spiritually complete us! Jesus gets a little tired every once in a while and the president says we gotta make a few corrections 'cause you’re profoundly unlike me and you’re far too frivolous with your money to purchase the quick recovery so in my own professional guess, based on what I've suggested, i find you defected. O treat me kindly! I’ve got a growth inside me! Institutionalize me! I had a mother who played tricks on me to make me love her she was two-faced, she was foul she bought food, toothpaste and towels and told me i was born out of her belly well i think its funny that you say you love me i think its funny that you say you love me i think its funny that you say you love me when you wouldn’t push me out of your tummy here comes the head am i doing exactly what you wanted? am i doing exactly what you wanted? And though I know this may be news to you and unexpected well you are the most detested waste of precious time invested of the rest that we've collected and that i find you defected
