Track Name: First Church of the Coast United
FIRST CHURCH OF THE COAST UNITED

At the seaport, pour out
Trace it back and forth
Chase her out the door
I’m not like me anymore
When I’m not like me, I’m yours

First Church of the Coast United
First words of a love undying

At the alt house, sold out
Kiss her feet on the floor
Purr my pet name like before
I’m not like me anymore
When I’m not like me, it’s a war

CHORUS

Recruit
Convert
Control
Retain

CHORUS
Track Name: Better When I'm Low
BETTER WHEN I’M LOW

Put the bed, bed on the floor
Know the end, the end before
Lost that time, not mine anymore
LI died, died on the shore
I wanna be the walkaway
I wanna be the walkaway
Tell LI I won’t stay
Tell LI I’m the walkaway

When it’s time, time for me to go
I get gone yeah, baby, I’m a ghost
I get gone yeah, baby, I’m a ghost
The Coast United is all that I know

Slap me in the dark, dark theater
Slap me hard so I know my leader
Tell me there’s nothing so I need her
Tell me I’m nothing, I believe her
I wanna free mind, free mind now
I wanna free mind, free mind now
Tell LI I won’t allow
Tell LI I have a free mind now

CHORUS

I know you like me better when I’m low
I know you love me better when I’m low
Track Name: Mind Control
MIND CONTROL

I was reborn
Old me got torn
Come on save me, thought reform
Come on change me, thought reform
I thought I was me
Then I unfreeze
Then you refreeze
Now, baby, I believe

Mind control
No parole
Mind control
No parole

I was outta touch
Own me that much
Come on, take me, brainwash
Come on, Lady Brainwash
Thought I had a plan
Then you program
Then I deprogram
Now, baby, I understand

CHORUS

If you make me, make me stay
I would be your Sadie Mae
Sadie Mae, Sadie Mae
If you make me, make me change
I would be your Sadie Mae
Sadie Mae, Sadie Mae

CHORUS
Track Name: Hey, Lady Brainwash
HEY, LADY BRAINWASH

Hey, Lady Brainwash
I’ll be what you want
Just tell me all of my thoughts
Hey, Lady Brainwash
All those lies that I bought
Just give me back what I've lost

It’s more than time
It’s my broken mind, my broken mind
I cannot hide
I cannot find
My stolen mind, my stolen mind

Hey, Lady Brainwash
I’m your slave and you’re the boss
I’m your silly little fuck
Hey, Lady Brainwash
I’ll carry you like a cross
Just throw me back what you’ve tossed

CHORUS

Baby, my mind
Maybe not mine

CHORUS

Hey, Lady Brainwash
I’ll be what you want
Just tell me all of my thoughts
Track Name: Dig That Grave
DIG THAT GRAVE

Take me to that island, ya know I won’t stay
Bad boyfriend lost East Rockaway
Caught on the coast, help me mayday
Caught on the coast, help me mayday
Caught on the coast, help me mayday
Caught on the coast, help me mayday

Dig that grave, I’ll find you there
Bury me deep to show you care
Dig that grave, I’ll meet you there
In love with you, yeah, death is fair
In love with you, yeah, death is fair

Tell me to go down and ya know I obey
Bad boyfriend, now he’s gotta pay
Dead letter tombstone, what it might say
Dead letter tombstone, what it might say
Dead letter tombstone, what it might say
Dead letter tombstone, what it might say

CHORUS

In love with you, yeah, death is fair
Track Name: Make Me No One

Love ain’t no fun, no fun
Until it makes me no one, no one
Until it makes me die some, die some
Yeah yeah, uh-huh uh-huh
Yeah yeah, uh-huh uh-huh
Come on make me no one, no one

CHORUS

Love ain’t no fun, no fun
Until it kills me shotgun, shotgun
Until it breaks me, all done, all gone
Yeah yeah, uh-huh uh-huh
Yeah yeah, uh-huh uh-huh
Come on make me no one, no one

CHORUS

Love ain’t no fun, no fun
Until it makes me no one, no one
Until it makes me no one, no one

CHORUS
Track Name: Lose Myself Completely
LOSE MYSELF COMPLETELY

Won’t you look through my phone
When I’m gone and you’re alone
Won’t you break all your bones
Searching for every name I’ve known
Oh my baby, oh my girl
Is it me that you own?
Oh my love, oh my sweet
Let me be, I’m on loan

Come on, girl, tell me what to be
I’ll join your cult, lose myself completely
Come on, girl, tell me what to see
I’ll join your cult, lose myself completely
Come on, girl, tell me how to kill me

Won’t we drive to the coast
In your car away we go
If we fight, just so you know
That is me jumping out the window
Oh my baby, oh my girl
Watch me float like a ghost
Oh my love, oh my sweet
Now you know how I roll

CHORUS

What do we want?
Death to self
What is love?
Death to self

CHORUS
Track Name: Ask My Master
ASK MY MASTER

May I have my life, life?
May I have my time, time?
May I have my life, life?
May I have my time, time?

Gonna have to ask her, ask her
Gonna have to ask her, ask her
Gonna have to ask her, ask her
Gonna have to ask her, ask her

Ask
My
Master

May I have my mind, mind?
Am I me? I try, try
May I have my mind, mind?
Am I me? I try, try

I know what she’s after, after
I know what she’s after, after
I know what she’s after, after
I know what she’s after, after

CHORUS

Am I your immediate obedient?

CHORUS
Track Name: I Don't Wanna Be Your Boy
I DON’T WANNA BE YOUR BOY

Saw myself in those boxes
Like a little casket on the carpet
Pack up memory given back
Like stolen money that we spent
Like stolen money that we lent
Love was made for the movies
I’m no director, don’t forget
I’m not an actor, burn the set

I don’t wanna be your boy anymore
I don’t wanna be your toy anymore

Saw my hell in those boxes
How those flames slowly crept
Tossed out memory given back
Like a little crumb that we swept
Like a little crumb that we kept
Love was made just to end
Like a little death that we expect
Like a little death, yeah that’s it

CHORUS

Saw myself in those boxes
Like a little casket on the carpet
Pack up memory given back
Like stolen money that we spent
Like stolen money that we lent
Love was made for the movies
I’m no director, don’t forget
I’m not an actor, burn the set

CHORUS
Track Name: Be My Charlie Manson
BE MY CHARLIE MANSON

Lock me in your basement
Baby, I’m your boyfriend
Fuck me in that basement
Baby, I’m your slave man
Now I’m down to your demands
Now I’m down to your demands

Be my Charlie Manson
Send me up to heaven
In my little casket
In my little casket
Be my Charlie Manson

What it was and what it meant
How your love was like cement
What it was and what it meant
Lay me down in your trap
Baby, I’m your boyfriend
Just the same as brain dead

CHORUS

Want me to kill all my friends?
Want me to kill my mom and dad?
I’ll do it all, baby
If it makes you happy
If it makes you love me

Want me to kill myself?
Want me to go right to hell?
I’ll do it all, baby
If it makes you happy
If it makes you love me

CHORUS
Track Name: Let Me Out
LET ME OUT

Thought that I was lost
Thought that I was gone
Then I got out
Then you let me out
Thought I loved the cult
Thought the cult was love
Thought I loved the cult
Thought the cult was love
Thought it was enough
But it’s not enough
Then I got out
Then you let me out

CHORUS

Thought that I was lost
Thought that I was fucked
Held you like a cross
Then you crossed me out
Thought I loved the coast
Thought the coast was love
Thought I loved the coast
Thought the coast was love
Thought it was done
Is it done?
Then I got out
Then you let me out

CHORUS

The Coast United, I fight it
The Coast United, untie it
The Coast United, I fight it
The Coast United, untie me

CHORUS
