Track Name: Ode To The Spring
Little cells collide in my head to let me know that
Everything is fine, everything is fine
Lying next to her confesses to all my senses
That I am afraid to die young
And that I still wish that he was near
And I still hope that god can hear
The songs that turn me into such a liar
A masquerade that keeps me tied
To places I will never find
That keep on pouring oil on the fire
But I'm so tired

I thought I'd learn so much when you left

Little cells collide, connect and combust around me
Trying to make sense of the cold
While I'm still waiting for something to take my voice and
Carry it away like before

I thought I'd learn so much when you left
(This song's been sung before, way before the winter broke)
Instead I'm left with empty spaces
(I miss the company, the lines, the shapes only we could see)
I thought I'd learn so much when you left
Track Name: Artificial Lights
I know I may be trying too hard
But I've got quotas to fulfill, there's no time for keeping still
This fucking party's dragging behind
Reminding me of better days that got lost in the kill

There's nothing that could feel better
Than knowing we'll never
Be left on our own
I'm sure there's some great disaster
That's coming to save her
And take care of me

I think I may have found god in your eyes
But lady, who could really tell through artificial lights
There's a great darkness dragging behind
And it just keeps on catching up to the
Good days I've yet to find
There's nothing happening in mine
These days are horrid but I know, I know that

There's nothing that could feel better
Than knowing we'll never
Be left on our own
I'm sure there's some great disaster
That's coming to save her
And take care of
I'm sure there's some great disaster
That's coming to save her
And take care of me
And take care of me
Please take care of me
Track Name: My Little Girl
My little girl, she knows me well
She has a spell that keeps me there
It never helps much to remember
How we came to be
But I'm pretty sure my little girl needs me

We speak a tongue no one understands
We have a home in a different land
She never would dare to say that
I've done any wrong
For my little girl knows my patience isn't strong

No one understands what I mean
When I say she'd never leave me
Track Name: Jail Cell
Just another lazy afternoon
There’s nothing to say or do
But lie in my bed blinking hours away
Killing time pacing ‘round the room
Just waiting for you
To come take me far from what I know as mine
‘Cuz I

Feel so sick to my stomach these days
I wish there was a cure to come take all these fears away
Time’s moving faster now

Just another way for me to unwind
Where nothing I say is mine
Just words upon words helping me to kill time
I can’t help all that troubles me
I can’t get to sleep at night
I’m killing myself with every bit that I hide
‘Cuz I

Feel so sick to my stomach these days
I wish there was a cure to come take all these fears away
Time’s moving faster
Days moving slower
My face looks older now
Track Name: Candy Can't Cope
Candy won't speak like the others
Candy won't speak like the others
She keeps her mind shut
She keeps her mind shut
Candy keeps cool, kind and tempered
Candy respects all her elders
She keeps her mouth shut
She keeps her mouth shut for them

Candy won't sing like the others
Candy won't look like the others
She's young and courageous
Bold and contagious
Candy won't walk like the others
Carries a strut two leaf clover
She keeps her mind shut
She keeps her mind shut

Candy shape, shifts and forms into the scene
Where nothing is written
Planned, thought or scripted out

Candy won't speak like the others
Candy won't speak like the others
She keeps her mind shut
She keeps her mind shut
Candy will never say she's sorry
Candy thinks all the boys are boring
But she kept her mind shut
She kept her mind shut for me

Candy forces her way through all I see
And I'm left imprinted
Waiting for something
Track Name: For The Press
On my own and I can't help but stare
At the girl with the sun in her hair
And the pretty red dress hanging down from her chest
To her ankles like twigs

Gather all of the confidence spared
Try to act just as sly and prepared
As the last man she'd meet
As the one she would keep
For the rest of her life

At my place, she knows she's made a mistake
Now she's tied to the bed
I'm in love and she's scared
I'm in love and she's scared

And then the man in black
Kills the girl
He kills the girl

At my place, she lies still on my bed
She looks lovely in red
I will live through my life
With the last words she said

On my own and I can't help but stare
At the girl with the sun in her hair
And the pretty red dress hanging down from her chest
To her ankles like twigs
Track Name: Love During Wartime
There's a friend I had with a washed out dream
That it all would fall where it all belongs
Where there's vinyl trees next to simple streams
Where there's golden girls on silver scenes

But I can't comply with the picture it's painting
No, I can't align myself with the shapes that it paints in my mind

There's a dream I had made of falling stars
That would build back up to a better start
Made of foreign rain from a different place
Where the people spoke of tongues unchained

But I can't comply with the picture it's painting
No, I can't align myself with the shapes that it paints in my mind

And there's a girl with a lisp who holds twigs like her wrists
Felt a quiet resist to belong to the rest
Fell in love with her father who walked like no other
She buried a feather that looked like her daughter and

I can't align with the shapes of her lips, no, and
I can't comply, for the rest of us followed her fate
Next to her we all live in shame
So afraid, so afraid, so afraid
Track Name: Falling
Moving on
There's a stress inside your voice
There's a million other places I would rather be than here
And this song, I know
It's the same one you've heard all year, but please

Let me talk to you the only way I know how
There's bursting colors in the walls
They're breaking me down and now

I think I'm falling
Baby, I'm falling
I swear I'm falling
Lady, I'm falling

There's a sound
That takes me back to when you heard
The first thing I ever said to you up here
And I know
There's no one else that needs me like you do
There's no one else, but let me

Tell you what I think I need to say to you now
I know I'm a distracted mind through changing conditions
How the rain is falling
Baby, it's falling
I hear it coming
The rain is falling

Please
Let me talk to you the only way I know how
There's little whispers from the walls
They're taking me down and now

I think I'm falling
Baby, I'm falling
I swear I'm falling
Lady, I'm falling

My core is shaking
Baby, I'm breaking
The weather's changing
There's something coming here
Track Name: When I Was Younger
When I was younger the world kept steady
And change was never part of me
I kept a faint familiarity
With my surroundings and my affections
And my simple relationships
Until the crowd went and got sick
With my disease

I had a friend then, he had a vision
A beautiful geometry
In the way he'd look at things
Until he left us his empty body
Devoid of any of his sins
I saw the freedom I could bring
To anyone

To anyone
To anyone
To anyone
To anyone

Come on anyone
Oh, anyone
Come on anyone
Oh please, anyone
Oh, anyone
Oh please anyone
Come on anyone
Track Name: Portrait Of A Friend
I still dream of moving myself through you
I still wish that there were places where we
Could both sit alone
Little colors come to shape your feathers
There are people who will never know the
Safety of a voice like yours
Track Name: Siren Song
And just like that I feel you leave me again
Inside a moment I’m awake and breathing
Where I can feel you moving from me
And I can’t bear my mind like I used to

You’ve taken everybody over lady
The ship’s been sinking under fire and I
Can still remember how I felt so
Lost and wandering in my own little black hole

The day you left me
The lazy mornings
The books that you read
Over and over
Your pretty number
My clumsy kisses
The guilt that takes me
Over and over
I am a siren
I am your siren

Each new moment keeps from changing lately
The time keeps still while I continue aging
The years keep soaring while the days lie
So still, so still, so still

Still so immersed in your little eyes
I wanna be part of your transcendent life
Wake up together, taking our time
I’m losing my mind, my edge, my fight for you, for you
Track Name: Wrong, Wrong, Wrong
Holes, holes in the back of my neck
That breathe
In homes, homes that are fading and scared

There's something wrong with this
There's something wrong with this

Bones, bones that we bury alive can speak to me and
Make me believe that the pictures I'm in are proof
That something's

Wrong with me
There's something wrong with me

There's something wrong with me
There's something wrong with me
There's something wrong with me
There's something wrong
