Jon Del Real I remember coming across this album after hearing her rad as hell "Deceptacon" cover with Paws. I was still in high school and searching for new music when saw this with the Name Your Price download. I of course named my price $0 given how broke I was, but absolutely loved listening to "The Woman that Loves You" on my iPod shuffle.

Seeing Japanese Breakfast pop off made me so happy. I like to think that my incessant Tumblr posting about this collection of music helped out. Love the album. Favorite track: The Woman That Loves You.

intro! 00:30
2.
You're embarrassing me With a postponed marriage and a stalled out car Then you leave me in the back with half a window rolled down Like a dog (like a dog) in the summer heat Don't you think? Don't you think You should try to do as little harm as you can to the woman that loves you Oh, we'll stay Oh, we'll stay together For the weekend, honey The weekend, babe Me and you, frosted blues But we're gazing out for better things You should try to do as little harm as you can to the woman that loves you

Jane Cum 03:08
Jane Cum In a year I'll say "your hair got long" And you'll tell me how the band got good Like dust kicked up from a tire Full force through the high beams I was rushing from phantom pain Sweat away our clothes hatching Jane Cum you swallow me whole Jane Cum swallow Soulless animal keep feeding on my meat All my tiny bones between your teeth Jane Cum you swallow me whole Jane Cum swallow

Road Head 00:55
You gave road head on a turnpike exit Going home
5.
Beating Off 01:44
Caught you beating off onto photos of my friends While your roommate's hair made figure 8s And we each cast up a dry spell Yeah!
6.
Bread 02:02
I awoke without breasts Just a clean, hard slate I ran my hands over the new formed surface Turned to you in bed With some fear I'm being honest But it's what I've always wanted To be your man Oh, to win your bread
7.
Triple 7 03:09
Don't you know you'll never be the same I look for you through the work week And I love a man in uniform And he loves me like a slot machine From the valley of loose women in the cruel light of morning You call out my name like something from the bottom of a well Oh how they want, how they need How they cling to my sleeves til they're lacerated sails But in the night I am someone else Don't you know I'll always be this way A pure woman is hard to find, to come by these days And I know the looks of urge and scorn And I know the role I'm meant to play The role of the other woman who will spend her life longing Call out my name like something from the bottom of a well Oh how they want, how they need How they cling to my sleeves til they're lacerated sails But in the night I am someone else
8.
We aren't bound by law We aren't bound by anything at all Just you If you decide to show Just if you decide to show up on time Why walk when you can show up on time?
