Track Name: County
I'm the highest authority, let me through. I'm a dead son's father, I'm so confused. I'm a county coroner, what'd you do? Cause your story doesn't really sound true and everything is pointing at you. You're the mayor's daughter, aren't you cute? You're the one I hated, you cut right through. Bags under my eyes. Tongue told me you lie. And it's true, I shouldn't have tried. I swear this was the last time. Cause you're stuck.
Track Name: Harm (Reprise)
Not that I switched over, I was calm enough to where I didn't need to fight. But who wouldn't, when your death is always a crime. Before I'd wield my forceps. I would clench my jaw and my skinny fists would fight. But who wouldn't when you're always running out of time. Often I am subtle, I contain myself and I believe in all your lies. But who wouldn't, cause we're fucked and that's just fine. Tonight it seemed much different. I had burned my tongue and nothing tasted right. It was sudden, but I do believe that it was time. I can feel this tension rise. I am so calm now that I can really work this out. I'll admit your waking life has been so drowned out that our talks become shouts.
