Track Name: Jæger
Floods in sheltered storms,
the mud moves with worms
wriggling away,
just like me.

Do I want to stay
away

Chemical distortions
rare-form proportions
I can't distinguish
which was the aberration

Chorus

Concrete interactions
split-lip distractions
The streets can keep
a part of me

Chorus

A mild abrasion
this conversation
An unforced error
in the rear-view mirror

There's discord in my thoughts
My tongue's tied into knots,
but what's there left to say?
I've said what I have to say.
Track Name: Amore
Nervous
Just to be here
In service
to deceit and fear

I just aim to please
Please don't write me off
Am I hopeless
To have hope for this
All I wanna see, is a chance for you and me
to be happy, to be happy
In love and in apathy it's a tragedy in my head
to prevent calamity, I grab desperately
All I wanna see, is a chance for you and me to be happy to be happy (x2)

One
insistent pesticide
Swallows up all my pride
Makes me cry
All the times that I feel alive

I just aim to please
Please don't write me off
Am I hopeless
To have hope for this
All I wanna see, is a chance for you and me
to be happy, to be happy
In love and in apathy it's a tragedy in my head
to prevent calamity, I grab desperately
All I wanna see, is a chance for you and me to be happy to be happy (x2)

We're emanating energies
Equivalent to hearts on sleeves
It's just the wrong season for those
So, do you see?
Or is it just me?

I'd embrace the impact
Strapped, careening forward.
And all the pangs and dents it came with
If I even made it
If it meant we'd be the ones
Picking up the pieces
together
Track Name: Skeleton City
In dialogue,
we're dying young
The sadder things
were left undone
Took a long drive
in the hiding sun
Talked a mess of my sharp tongue

Skeleton city, ash and rust
Skeleton army, I'm joining up
Skeleton warfare, Skeleton lust
All up in smoke, All up to us.

It's all in our heads
This distance
deciphered text
in rememberance
It's buried deep.
My heart's contents
Parting words
Just pretense

Skeleton city, ash and rust
Skeleton army, I'm joining up
Skeleton warfare, skeleton lust
all up in smoke, all up to us
skeleton city, ash and rust.
Skeleton army, I'm giving up
skeleton plow shares, skeleton swords
All up in smoke, all up to us

All up in smoke, all up to us...
Track Name: Bloodsport
I'm but a bored matador
Waiting for the horns
All those times I should've died
It's concrete, and I can't change.

Gored or adored, it's fate laid at my feet.
Is this victory or the jaws of defeat?

It's so easy to leave
It's a motive I deceive.
It's so easy to leave.
It's a motive I perceive.

You can't take me
Anywhere
Like a bull in a
china shop
Track Name: Costume
Let's put this to bed
For my sake or sanity
Gambling with crisis
The next big thing

Driving down the turnpike
on the fourth of july
thinking this is the time
of our lives and we were right (x2)

Better served by the truth
Boring as that is
Our war grew tiring,
and I grew wings waiting

Driving down the turnpike
on the fourth of July
Thinking this is the time
of our lives and we were right (x2)
Track Name: Tierra de Ensueño (Land Of Dreams)
can't stop, staring at the ceiling
empty space that's filled with feeling
in blue veins so you feel needed
concrete tears you into dreaming

please don't worship the porcelain
come back breathe in the oxygen
our lives are already paper thin
no you don't need to scratch that itch

Pleasantville world of tomorrow,
no need to keep feeding the sorrow
No time for change today
No time for that this may.

please don't worship the porcelain
come back breathe in the oxygen
our lives are already paper thin
no you don't need to scratch that itch

Dear friend
ignore the beckoning
of hopeless thoughts
under your skin
Your scabs are
crescent healing sins
Demons are at depression's end

I thought I saw a glint of truth
I thought I saw a glint...of truth
I thought I saw a glint of truth
I thought I saw the real you.
Track Name: Paintings For Dogs
We all get ours in the end, I hope.
Choking to death in the blue, black smoke
Forsake morality of fixed points
Distort the images we anoint.
Hide our mistakes in an illusion
Of something that's divine in our lives
Life's sly I know, but sloppy at best.
By now my trust it rots at the head.

The quick and the dead (x2)
who can run forever
the quick and the dead (x2)
keep reaching for the spotlight
the quick and the dead(x2)
cut in half you gasp
the quick and the dead (x2)
last breaths on the marlboro mile

Think of what's been given to get here
Of what's been gained from all this effort
Why's it that concessions of their views
matter more than arguments we choose?

The quick and the dead (x2)
do you see a world on fire?
The quick and the dead (x2)
Or do you dwell in sunlight?
I cast long shadows (x4)

We used to be
Good friends I think
I thought that we could help each other and I was wrong
but pride comes before the fall dont you know
don't you know...
And you can blame me for everything that happened
Am I smart am I brave or just ready to die?
