about

There was nothing in this place.
Nothing worth staying up for.
I creaked across the floor to the window.
Lifeless.
Waiting for something that I did not know.
There was a hole where the sun used to be
A bottomless orifice.
And I longed for something I did not know.
I wish I could have told you before the storm came

Track Name: No Need to Pretend
Tied up, tied down
Friends with the ground
Low and stupid
Loved and confound

I'm going away again
No need to pretend
I'm going wherever I want to be
I'm going away again
No need to pretend
I'm going wherever I need to be

We all worship
The ever-whining sow
Kurt can you hear
What they're singing now?

I'm going away again
No need to pretend
I'm going wherever I need to be
I'm going away again
No need to pretend
I'm going wherever I need to be
Track Name: Something to Burn
If it were up to me I'd let it burn
If it were up to me I'd burn it all
If it were up to me I'd let it burn
Let it burn from the top down

Is it lonely up there?
On your pile of cash?
NEVER GET OLD NEVER GET SAD
Do yourself well
and burn it to ash
NEVER GET OLD NEVER GET SAD

If it were up to me I'd let it burn
If it were up to me I'd burn it all
If it were up to me I'd let it burn
Let it burn from the top down

Is it lonely up there?
On your pile of cash?
NEVER GET OLD NEVER GET SAD
Do yourself well
and burn it to ash
NEVER GET OLD NEVER GET SAD
Track Name: Empty Seas
So you say you know
You know for sure
Do you now?
About how I act
and how I feel
Do you now?

Well I know something
I do.
I hope you're lonely, and cold, and disturbed, and
crawling a the bottom of empty seas

Just like me.

You're a thousand ships
Lost at sea
Without me.
I run around in circles
with a cape.
It's just not me.

Well, who is this? I see
Miss lonliness keep your hands to yourself, I
think you've had a little too much to drink

Just like me.

Sing me to sleep
I'm tired.

You can't come in here
know your place
go away.
All my words have a very
bitter taste
what a waste.

you're no good
for me.
Track Name: Coming Alive...
Tiny thumbs and huge middle fingers
A memory that only lingers
In the shadows that you make
The poison you take

And it's all just out of reach... for now

Out of sight
Out of mind
Coming alive
to fall asleep
Track Name: I'm Off Again. Again.
Put you on a shelf
Share my drink but keep your secrets to yourself

Lets go
move along again
Lets go
you were wrong again

Keep in tow
status quo
I'm off again. Again.

Paint me skies
Soft acrylic paint
But leave your melodies aside

Dead for
Just the moment
It's beautiful
Cause I can see it

Keep in tow
status quo
I'm off again. Again.
I'm off again. Again.
I'm off again. Again.
When will it end?
Track Name: My Mind
It's empty in the sunrise
and full in the ways you despise.

But don't you ever leave me here
don't you ever leave me here
with my mind

Dream of other things you could do
distract yourself from being with you

But don't you ever leave me here
don't you ever leave me here
with my mind

Don't you ever leave me here
Please don't ever leave me here
with my mind
Track Name: If I Say Anything Bad, I Don't Mean It
Please make it through the night
I think you'll be alright in spite of the fact that I'm losing it
Maybe we're just right
Maybe it's just the moonlight

I take it back
Every single word

Don't cash in today
Why are you so far away?
In spite of the things that I need to say?
Delay the decay
Maybe it's just too late

I take it back
Every single word
Track Name: ...To Fall Asleep
Fade in, fade out, fade in, out and away.
