You got your life wrong baby You’ve got the light on the darkness It’s getting rough all so suddenly You ate a piece of my perfect peach pie You turned the light on slowly You got a light on inside of me Don’t pull the shades down quickly You’ve got the light on inside of me You’ve got the light on me ooooh I’ve fallen in with a phantom now It’s all I needed Give me five dollars for the lighthouse Let me take the mellow path through Livin’ it up working it out taking my pulse Selling the car watching the birds You burned the house down baby You’ve shaken me to the foundation I’ll stretch my heart over your head We’ll see the view from above now You turned the light on slowly You got a light on inside me

Eyeballs 01:57
Come and get it Every time I go down to your house I turn into something I never knew I was I don’t understand you You don’t have any power over me Except you do, you know you do I don’t understand it and I don’t like it But you’re doing it Get down Get down Shake things Move out Cut off your hair Cause you’ve got that look on your face You’ve got that glint in your eyeballs And you know what that means Come and live it Every time I go down to the grocery store Even with these heathens all around me I’m plagued by indecision and turmoil Should I buy the garlic powder or garlic cloves? Do I want the precooked bacon the Double stuffed Oreos? How do you humans navigate these waters?

Heavy petting, come and get it, we’re connected I believe in the healing powers of satin Heavy petting, come and get it, we’re connected There’s no living in this double fantasy I can tell there’s strings running through everything, Watch me as I float and fall and bounce back up Tell yourself it only ever gets much better Breathe the air inside this tiny balloon I heard that you come around Whenever the sun disappears Shock me into yielding ever slowly I like how your wet breath feels on me I know we can’t talk about objectivity All we are is all we’ll ever learn to be Tell me there’s a secret passage Feel the way... Racing around like a pumpkin that’s caught fire But you’re the only fireman within my sight And if my hands fall off and shatter on the ground I hope you don’t cut your baby feet I believe the sun is going down I believe the moon is made of marzipan I believe that there are two of me Living simultaneously in the same world I believe that there are two of me Living simultaneously in the same world I believe the sun is going down I believe the moon is made of marzipan Tell me there's a secret passage Feel the way the world moves under us The world moves under us Feel the way the world moves under us I can tell there’s strings running through everything Watch me as I float and fall and bounce back up Tell yourself it only ever gets much better Tell yourself whatever

Hypocrite landing on a satellite I’ve got a piece of skin in my water I don’t understand it There’s a lot of things I don’t understand Like nuclear physics and quantum mechanics I don’t wanna be anything that you can be Because I am stereotypically Extra terrestrial, unique Don’t you wanna say baby gotta go down Oh baby you got it going Baby you’ve got it going Oh my love spreads across the mountains Ohio has always been my home And you’re never going down Get your gods down to the Colosseum Ride them around in the little red wagons Get high on your carousel I don’t know what I’m doing here Baby you’ve got a lot of damage now Do you know what that means Do you know what that means to me Ooh child get your daggers out Touch your cheek and I’ll kiss you goodnight Kiss you goodnight

There’s a catapult over the mountain There’s a caterpillar There’s a catapult Standing and shouting Over the mountain And it's coming for you slowly And he looks a little thing And for your family You’ve got a lot of nerve Coming round here talking to me like you're fancy You’ve got a lot of nerve Thinking your little things Honestly I’m an amateur Just like the rest of them Got a lot of nerve Coming onto me like this you see And you won’t talk clearly When you know there’s nothing I can do To separate us from this fantasy I’m itching at the neck now see I think there’s something crawling on me So don’t go, don’t go, please don't go away Please don’t go away Give a little get a little Like a caterpillar dancing In another universe Watch me going over and under And he’s going upstairs And we’re going to a funeral drinking And I’m so alone you’ve gotta hold me Like a caterpillar dancing And let go now But I don’t wanna go Everything I do is counterintuitive I’m a wave of emotions Untangle them and tangle them How come I listen to myself And tangle them up again How could I, how come I listen to myself? What was I thinking when I looked in the mirror again? What was I thinking? I should have seen myself, I should have loved myself But of course I can’t see anything anyhow You're a freaky little thing In the haze of proximity You're a freaky little thing

Dollhouses 02:39
Airplanes don’t like subways Gotta get started somewhere Gotta get started somewhere I don’t like sound of a backbone, stand back Gotta lot of nerve baby but I don’t mind Swing me around again Gotta lot of nerve baby but I don’t mind Get down when I’m sitting down on the ground Get back hammering the finest ass Get back, get back Live these final moments carelessly Don’t forget to take your special medicine But don’t take it, it doesn’t help anything Gotta plant a planet in something round here Gotta find someone to balance these scales There’s a rabbit in my pants and I can feel her breathing Like she’s a dragon And the hot stuff is melting my legs I can’t find anything redeemable in what you’re saying Honey you don’t believe in now But you don’t get nothing if you don’t die soon Hey girl, don’t you know you got three fingers in the wrong place baby? How many dollhouses are too many dollhouses? Freaky laughing and oohs Freaky laughing and oohs And I wonder How many dollhouses are too many dollhouses?

But I don’t know What will go down I’ve got a cat now But I don’t know how it gets around Had a Bandaid on my finger Burned myself on the chicken pan It hurts, I need some Neosporin But I don’t have any so I’ve gotta go out Don’t wanna leave my house Don’t wanna leave my house now I can’t go down to the store Because I don’t have a car any more There isn’t time I don’t have money in my pocket Guess I need a job now Do you have a job for me? I could be your ukulele I could be everything that you need But that wouldn’t pay the bills would it now? Do you have an understanding Of what it means to be inside my head? Nothing here is real! Nothing here is real! What the fuck is wrong with me? This isn’t funny all but I’m cracking myself up I can’t seem to stand the way the peanut butter falls down Into the bath tub Wallowing all alone by myself in the tub I eat some chicken nuggets in the bath tub While I’m alone and crying It's been worse I tell you, my life has been worse

Snowday Baby 01:41
You’re a real sure shot baby You’re a monster inside my heart Everybody knows where you’ve been But we want your shoe size There’s a little monkey in heart No one ever sees it jumping crazy You’re on the right track baby Don’t forget to go to the depot now You’ve got your underwear inside out Praying for a snowday baby I could never lose you in the crowd You’re the one who sings into my mouth Whoa you’ve got it good now Don’t you let it loose now You got it good now You’re such a car wreck baby And we’re heading for the bridge now Every time you go out I’m worried For your safety cause I don’t know where you’ve been Show me where the pages fell apart You could never hold me like an ocean

Hey crabs, why are we going in circles? Eat these sacred sentences They’re always breaking out Hey birds, keep it to yourself You're in a forest going down Keep up all that flying Why is it always the quiet ones? It’s always the pious ones Who have the giant lungs Everybody knows hard love Say your name for me Get a shoe shine, baby I’m going down Gotta get a suit for your funeral, I can’t explain what you’re doing
10.
I miss you, I miss your face When it’s going down I miss you, I miss your face And I’m going down I miss you, I miss the way you move in me I miss the way you wipe them tears From my forehead, baby I miss you I miss you, I miss you, I miss you My hard heart is broken down I can’t let it out I can’t let it out I have no understanding of Why you do the things you do I’m not sure why nothing comet together Nothing comes together Nothing comes together Get on way down in the garden Get on way down in the garden Plant it way down in the garden It is the green grass that you wanted It’s exactly what you wanted

about

pumpkin mouth is Guy Capecelatro III and jocelyn mackenzie.

They created this new band to participate in the 2019 RPM challenge in which participants are prompted to write and record an album in the month of February.

Guy asked jocelyn, for about the 30th time in the ten years she'd known him, "Do you wanna do an RPM album together this year?" and jocelyn finally said "Sure, but I want you to make a bunch of really weird beats and I just want to sing to them."

"Deal," said Guy.

And so he did make weird beats and tracks, and he emailed them to jocelyn, who was in Florida at the time. She improvised melodies and lyrics in a process she fondly calls making "word salad," and emailed Guy back the raw improvisations she came up with. Guy listened to these odd song zygotes and typed up the words he THOUGHT he heard her singing. Then, he sent those lyrics back to Jocelyn who made no changes to his interpretations but did make some actual vocal parts out of the whole thing. None of the lyrics make any sense and most of them ended up about food and we like it like that.

Tooth Salad is pumpkin mouth's first album.

Peanut Butter is the name of the cat.
