Heather This EP is great because it includes "I Wanna Do Evil" and I'm glad someone made a song to play in the background of the television show that is my life when I have my occasional relapses into villainy. Favorite track: I Wanna Do Evil.

Claws In 02:34
Don't touch my hands I'm a classy lady Like a cat that can't lick itself Stuck in the litter box I need help Don't touch my hands I'm a comfortable woman I wear fine jewels and I wear nice clothes But when I see you now I decompose There's a girl on my street The street where I'm at She's hanging up a sign it says "Missing Cat" (Missing cat) Good luck with that Claws in (claws out) Don't touch my hands I'm a human being Human being Don't touch my hand You don't know where it's been Claws In

Don't try to run We got longer legs and we run much faster And we never forget who we're after Don't try to run Where you trying to run to in such a hurry We are here for you so don't you worry Don't try to run Don't try, Don't try

I'm trying to sleep (I wanna do evil) But the neighbors keep (I wanna do evil) Summoning spirits I'm at the office (I wanna do evil) I can't stop coughin (I wanna do evil) I spilled my coffee Evil I see the politician (I wanna do evil) On the television (I wanna do evil) He got a golden vision I'm at the party (I wanna do evil) Your grandma's party (I wanna do evil) I'm sitting by your girlfriend Evil I wanna wanna I wanna do evil

Sweet Boy 03:31
They say a man should be In control of desire They say a man should desire Just that which he can acquire And so I sleep in a death bed I get my bread from the corner store Black shades when I look in the mirror Feel like Vesalius digging up a graveyard Are you a good man? Are you a bad bad man? No I'm a sweet boy I hear the radiant people They call my shivering boy I must be nervous by nature Most people I just avoid I wear a coat I show no hands And everywhere I go I shake no hands I used to go door-to-door Looking for a light but I don't do that anymore Are you a good man? Are you a bad bad man? No I'm a sweet boy Fear free Feeling kinda heavy

Two Weeks 03:08
I woke up driving It was very frightening I'm not arriving I'm tired of climbing I put in my two weeks Well sleep it got me But the trees they caught me I'm not arriving I'm tired of climbing I put in my two weeks First thing to go's your perfect body Next thing you know you wish you didn't have a body Kill me if I don't learn It's not the money it's the dying that you earn I don't need to understand or fear the necessary end so Call me when it's my turn I put in my two weeks
