Track Name: i'm dead to me
is there anything you won't say,
if there is then close the gates,
it's a big dead world and it's dark tonight so let's find a place to die.

but you can't die, yeah you can't die..

i guess you can't wash away,
the fingertips on your brain,
they dig too deep and they read your mind and if you fall asleep you die.

sometimes i won't go if you are there, i just look away.
sometimes i won't go if you are there, let's start today.

is there anything you won't say,
if there is then close the gates,
it's a big dead world and it's dark tonight so let's find a place to die.

but you can't die, yeah you can't die..

all i found, wasn't even real till now.
all i found, wasn't even real till now.

sometimes i won't go if you are there, i just look away.
sometimes i won't go if you are there, let's start today.
Track Name: the bad seed
you went back and fought your only hope,
deep inside of you you'll choke,
a burning car will take you home,
something you should listen to.

i'm probably not the one, to tell you what you need,
you're planting the bad seed, let's watch it grow now.

unsettled, you should get a metal,
why are you so calm, why don't you become the bomb?
ungrateful, always fucking hateful,
why are you so gone, when did you become undone?

mess keeps floating, the mess keeps floating my way,
roll it up and push it out to sea.
mess keeps floating, the mess keeps floating my way,
roll it up and push it back out to sea.

i'm probably not the one, to tell you what you need,
you're planting the bad see, let's watch it grow now,
i'm counting every day, to make it through this maze,
your hand is on the gauge, it's time to crawl out.
Track Name: drugs
you calibrate, enhance the situation all night,
the timing rolls by, but i need to get my shit back.

we cut off all lines, friends not so much now,
the sun is fading away, away from you.

the sole reason i'm fine is drugs in my mind,
the sole reason i'm fine alright is drugs in my mind.
Track Name: it means nothing
you can't find this, it finds itself,
with somebody else.
and so without these hands, to carry time,
it's on your window.
and i get me.

a place you go, a story told,
about this old couch.
and it goes into the street, across the creek,
it follows for free.

blank inside of me.
i've got lights and shade today.

and it goes, into the street,
across the creek, it follows for free.

blank inside of me.
i've got lines and shade.
blank inside of me.
i've got lines and shade.

i'm surprised that you could be so kind,
it means nothing to you.
Track Name: cold dead hand
well i guess i might feel a little different,
i don't ask why i'd rather not know,
i guess i might try to find the exit,
it's a long way from the bent down drag it on the street,
pull your weight, you don't get it,

all night feast, count the days,
never been told it's out of my cold dead hands,

this is the brain, covered in hair,
you won't find a folicle in your cold dead eye,
hold me back.

pay attention to the faded rainbow on the frozen pavement,

once again, i feel fine,
close your lips and i'll be on the train to space.
you've got friends, on your couch,
once upon a time this is getting really hard to watch.
hold me back.
Track Name: the long way down
you don't sink ships to help you take off,
you don't make sense to when you breathe, to flood this city.

broke exist until you wake up,
hold six lips beneath this wreath, disown like candy.

won't you terrify me..

make interest begin descending,
stay present yourself to tree, a stone take money

help yourself alarm clock wake up,
bring your suit to call it free, a syntax spelling.

brain in truth a lonely trolley, listen sell the all you need,
a sound inedible.

won't you terrify me..
Track Name: ten dead feet
there's ten dead feet hanging from me,
hard to sleep, makes me angry.

dead feet.
they hang right from my side.

it's a curse, ten dead feet hanging from back of me,
if you see me please don't touch the feet.

dead feet.
they hang right from my side.

when i come to town, please don't stare me down,
when i come to your town, please don't stare me down.

dead feet.
they hang right from my side.

dead feet.

and i'm waiting for a girl like you to come into my life.

dead feet.
they hang right from my side.

it's a curse, ten dead feet hanging from back of me.
if you see me please don't touch the feet.
Track Name: the secret eye
one fell easily, and i told you that i can't find anything,
and my problems not you, it's me,
but theres nothing left to do or say,

you've been telling everyone, you told me you would keep it shut,
i've been waiting for awhile and i'm not ready to unwind.

a deserted part of you.

you don't know say when it becomes unstable,
and this whole facelift, you've got it under control now.
there is one way down, someday i'll find out,
make time from the base metal.
breakdown take this on, we don't know (no) answer.
breakdown take this on, we don't know (no) answer.

the candle made you sway, the promise took you fourteen days.
and i love you too.

breakdown take this on, we don't know (no) answer.
breakdown take this on, we don't know (no) answer.

leave your body by the light, we will not be riding high,
if you find the secret eye, seperate it from it's sight.
leave your body by the light, we will not be riding high,
if you find the secret eye, seperate it from it's sight.
Track Name: drag it out
the difference is you went there after all,
i promise that you won't be alright.
gone to the wrong life, you used to think you could stay away,
it's always been my time to lose, now it's a different place.
a promise that you just could not keep, and could not wait to break.

one flew right by, it could take so much.

i hope i'm sane - drag it out.

gone to the wrong life, you used to think you could stay away.
it's always been my time to lose, now it's a different place.
a promise that you just could not keep, and could not wait to break.
gone to the wrong life, you used to think you could stay away.

it's always been my place to fall from space to fall awake.
i'm not happy when it comes back.
don't have a body, don't have a mind.
i can't stand the way you took it all.

i can't stand the way you took it all.
Track Name: lost in space
please don't talk, cause i wanted to tell you,
i could give a shit what comes next, cause i'm already there.

i've got everything and i want everything else,
you've got everything else i want everything else,

i know it's selfish and unkind, i try to stop myself each time.

i'm so lost in space that i might never return,
it's okay theres nothing because everything burned.
i know i was driving and i drove us here,
but i don't understand the reason it's just not clear.

i know you told me it was time,
but i've been waiting here all night.

i've got everything and i want everything else,
you've got everything else i want everything else.

i know it's selfish and unkind,
i try to stop myself each time,
i know you told me it was time,
but i've been waiting here all night.
Track Name: still asleep
in the doorway through the double gates,
you've seen a lot of strange things.
steady your hands to remove the face,
i promise it won't wake up.
it's probably too late to grow legs,
my finger touches a rattlesnake.

it's all just fucked, it's all fucked up.
i've got no plans and i'm still asleep.
it's all just fucked, it's all fucked up.
i've got no plans they've got me.

it's not rain, this is not a new thing.

and this is just a waste, one long day,
there's nothing left to say, just watch it fall away,
theres holes in my brain, the city is a maze,
you'll never be the same, and it's..

it's all just fucked, it's all fucked up,
i've got no plans and i'm still asleep,
it's all just fucked, it's all fucked up,
i've got no plans they've got me.

it's not rain, this is not a new thing.
Track Name: dead weight
and now you see, the cold beak,
the webbed feet, you're not asleep,
and now it's time for you to leave,
don't come back you're dead to me,
once again you start to shake,
the next day you're still awake,
body parts in bad shape, you'll never take that first taste.

on the trail, i got lost,
the wrong way home is where i've gone,
the street light shines down into the gun,
there's not much left so you get none,
burning houses in the sun,
it makes no sense to try to run,
the late shift is already done,
i promise you're the only one.

why did it drag me so deep?
dead weight in the back seat, it used to be me.

this is just a figment of pulsing pain,
you wear it like a suit that you wore in shame.

welcome to this delicate insignificant place to bury this game,
and you never did play but it's too late because it happened anyway.

soaked through, it's never too late.
sold you, it's never too late. (repeat)
