Track Name: Plastic Wrist
In the worst times
I say the best lines

In the place with the city view
I sit and smile like I'm someone new

I'll never back down
I'll never turn around

But I'm afraid of coming down
So what's the distance to the ground?

I can't wait to meet you
My only one
And ask forgiveness
For all I've done

But I don't want to wait that long
No I don't want to wait that long

I can't be alone with out burning
So can I take you home and fuck with you?

Man, I don't feel the way I used too
But I don't mind as long as you do

I watch them laugh at my fortitude
A plastic wrist and a brand new view

So get your facts straight
Before you separate

I can't wait to meet you
My only one
And ask forgiveness
For all I've done

But I don't want to wait that long
No I don't want to wait that long

Lock your doors
And wait it out
Ignore the sound
Wipe the grin from your mouth

I'm gonna save your soul
For my own sake
Oh, who would have known?
It was my biggest mistake

God loves
God loves
God loves your little soul

Go away, where you belong
Go away, where you belong
Track Name: Morning
God damn the air that fills my lungs
Your bones will snap like twigs
Because I haven't come this far
To watch your filthy hands pry it away

I dream of everyones line wired
Suburban homes on fire
Yeah, I am the enemy
The last nail in the coffin wouldn't stay

For a second there
You had me fooled
Go get my gun
I'll go be someone
In the morning light
I just stare into the sun

(at the end of everything
this won't mean anything)

My shaking hands opened the door
Man I think I've been through this before
Partial amnesia
Cough the brine onto the shore

I saw your heels, face on the floor
Squirming to crawl, I begged no more
But you felt so morning sick
You blocked the sun just to be sure

For a second there
You had me fooled
Go get my gun
I'll go be someone
In the morning light
I just stare into the sun

By design
You'll always be
The better one
Between you and me

By design
You'll always be
The better one
Between you and

(stones to dust,
the ones you loved
walked into the sea)

Go get my gun
I'll go be someone
In the morning light
I just stare into the sun

At the end of everything
This won't mean anything

At the end of everything
This won't mean anything
Track Name: Death/Bed
Between your womb and grave
The life you almost saved

Sit down, you can't relate
To the kings that you've enslaved

The sun won't rise when the morning comes
Run away to the beat of the drums
Did your best, couldn't add up the sum

The sun don't set on the modern age
He read her memoirs from a creaking stage
Walked away and fell asleep on her grave

Said he'd rather be a traitor then another slave

I back down, I can not take
The motion in my head

I got used to the pain
The heart I had to explain

The sun won't rise when the morning comes
Run away to the beat of the drums
You did your best, couldn't add up the sum

The sun don't set on the modern age
He read her memoirs from a creaking stage
Walked away and fell asleep on her grave

Said she'd rather be a traitor then another slave

Oh, you sterile souls
You walk like you already know

Oh, your sitcom rolls
You behave 'cause you already know

Oh, your fortune told
Now behave cause they already know

The sun won't rise when the morning comes
Run away to the beat of the drums
You did your best but couldn't add up the sum

The sun don't set on the modern age
He read her memoirs from a creaking stage
Walked away and fell asleep on her grave

Said I'd rather be a traitor then another slave
Track Name: Ginona Plane
I wished you all away
You took the last piece of the puzzle
And you threw it away

Oh, you worked up the nerve
And asked me if I feel okay

Can't wait for the tide to meet your homes
Cant wait for promises you made to float

All your abandonments become your homes
Who you forgot becomes all you know

Lost at sea
In the brave new world
Angel please
Save my soul

Hey, you took sucked the last life from my neck
Now I'm your biggest mistake

I used to treat each day as my first
I used to see the good in the worst

But now I sleep in the dirt
Recite the words that I heard
As her mind soaked in gin on a plane

Can't wait for the sea to settle the score
Can't wait for your injustices at your door

Just an embarrassment to my name
Can't wait for you heart to feel that weight

Lost at sea
In the brave new world
Angel please
Save my soul

Stand, waiting on the shore
Oh to touch the frozen sea

But my futures looking bright
If I could only forgive

Forget
Forgive

Lost at sea
In the brave new world
Angel please
Save my soul
Track Name: Egodeath
Take another look please
Under better light
I used to believe in magic too

Brain to mouth I coordinate
Under the city lights
And let the slurring whiskey say

There's no white horses
Just this empty space
There's no white horses
No watery eyed embrace

I've been running
But I don't know why
I'm stuck in static fields
Out of breath

Disregard my conscience
I want the easy life
I want to live for no one
Live for nothing

Brain to mouth I coordinate
Under the city lights
Your friends are boring me to death

Did you get it?

There's no white horses
Just this stupid place
There's no white horses
No watery eyed embrace

(just forget it)
Track Name: The Loneliest Place
I don't want you
I don't need you
I don't love you

Because hey
I'm the loneliest place

Medicated imbecile girl
Running your mouth
You think your trust fund is running the world

But hey
I think it's running out

So keep your tongue in your mouth
And let your fingertips trace
I fall off your blouse

Hey
Into the loneliest place

I don't want you
I don't need you
I don't miss you

Because hey
I'm the loneliest place

Medicated imbecile girl
You keep running your mouth
You've got your pockets filled with drugs

But hey
I think you're running out

So you figured me out
Saw the scars on my face
I walked out your house

Hey
Back to the loneliest place
Track Name: Oh Well
When you're out
Breathing in the daze
Promising to pray

You're not good enough to be
All the big, bad words you say

She knows
She floats

If I could shake all these feelings
I just stare at the ceiling
A ghost in the window

I'd rather spend my last days blue
As long as I'm with you

Tonight
There's something in your eyes
There's something about the sky

Tonight we escape

When you're numb
Standing in the rain
The feelings just not that sane
It's just pessimistic

So close your door to tidal waves
And write it down before the world goes bang

She knows
She floats

I'm begging, I'm kneeling
I'll float through the ceiling
And walk beside your ghost

I'd rather spend my last days blue
As long as i'm with you

Tonight
There's something in your eyes
There's something about the sky

Tonight
We escape

There's something about your eyes
There's something about this night

There's something about your eyes
There's something about this night

There's just something about your eyes
Track Name: Alien (Burial)
Born in a daze, I
Can not remember my name

Falling from earth, I
Got nothing to grab
There's nothing to grab

The insects eat the parasites
I think I need to step outside

Oh wicked wind
Where have you been?
I was born in your storm
And i've missed you since then

Oh evil rain
Why did you go?
You whispered my name
Do you still feel the same way?

I still feel the same

The face on the timeline
A compass and map
I'm a sarcastic laugh

They gnaw on our lifeline
And seek the same treasure
On a different path

The warmth in you can save the world
Now I think it's time you stepped outside

Oh wicked wind
Where have you been?
I was born in your storm
And i've missed you since then

Oh evil rain
Why did you go?
You whispered my name
Do you still feel the same way?

I still feel the same

Alien burial
Alien bury her

Alien burial
Alien bury her

Oh wicked wind
Where have you been?
I was born in your storm
And i've missed you since then

Oh evil rain
Why did you go?
You whispered my name
Do you still feel insane?


Alien burial
Alien bury her

Alien burial
Alien bury her

Alien burial
Alien bury her

Alien burial
Alien bury her
Track Name: Disappear
Oh, eight blue eyes
I became my disguise
In the backround did I
Did I deceive you?

I've been locked up for weeks
Watching routines repeat
But what do I care?
But what do I care?

I've got nowhere to go
Just this view from below
I'm caught in the undertow
And death slides near me

I've got no one to be
No reflection to see
I sat under Adam's tree
But god can't hear me

The gun in my mouth
They finally figured me out
The devil held my hand
And saw right through me

My cold, glitching mind
I think I feel alright
But what do I know?
But what do I know?

I don't know where to go
Just this view from below
I'm caught in the undertow
And death slides slowly

I don't know who to be
No reflection to see
I sat in their company
I've never been so lonely

I've felt the weight of a thousand seas
It soon brought me to my knees

I've held this pose for a million years
I beg, just let me disappear

Just let me disappear
Just let me disappear
Just let me disappear
Just let me disappear

I don't know where to go
Just this view from below
I'm caught in the undertow
And death slides near me

I don't know who to be
No reflection to see
I sat under Adam's tree
But god can't hear me

I've got nowhere to go
(I'll be next to you)
Just this view from below
(I'm always next to you)
I'm caught in the undertow
(I'll be next to you)
And death slides slowly
(I'm always next to you)

I've got one to be
(I'll pop up next to you)
No reflection to see
(I'm always next to you)
I sat in their company
(I'll be next to you)
I've never been so lonely
(I'm always next to you)

I'll pop up next to you
I'm always next to you
I'll be next to you
I'm always next to you
Track Name: God Wont Mind
I don't know why
I sold myself to you

Soft and sweet I
Float right on through

I don't know who to blame
This time, this time

I don't know who to blame
This time, this time

We all go on forever
We all go on forever

Living a lie
Or dying for the truth

Sad empty eyes
Pierce right through you

I don't know who to blame
This time, this time

(Dirty blinds, faulty lines)

I don't know who to blame
This time, this time

(God don't mind, I'm just killing time)

We all go on forever
We all go on forever

I'm just killing time

(There, there now)

God don't mind

KIlling time

(There, there now)

God don't mind

(There, there now)

We all go on forever
(I'm just killing time
There, there now)

We all go on forever
(God don't mind
There, there now)

We all go on forever
(Just killing time
There, there now)

We all go on forever
(God don't mind
There, there now)

I'm just killing time
