Track Name: Sweaty November
I remember sucking sweaty November down your throat
I wrote the lines
And I paid the fines
And was the butt of the joke
But I want to appeal to your apathy
I want you to feel what it is that’s pressed on me
I want you to know
How it feels to be all alone
Next to me while you sit there on your phone

Lay it on me
I want to listen
Lay it on me
I want to hear you

And this time I don’t care
This time I’m not waiting around
This town

I want to appeal to your sense of apathy
I want you to feel what it is that’s pressed on me
I want you
I want you to know
How it feels to be all alone
Next to you while you sit there on your phone
I want you to know how it feels

There’s no judge because there’s no trial
Whatever the words mean to you
Make you think or at least smile
They’re left for you
They’re left for you
Track Name: I'll Sleep When I'm Dead
Don’t need to decide
Don’t need to say when
No need to think about
I’ll sleep when I’m dead

When I’m all dried up and old
When it’s all been bought and sold

Beyond the wind
Beyond the soul
I will ascend into my hole

And I’ll believe what father said
I will believe that it’s all in my head

Don’t need to decide
Don’t need to say when
No need to think about
I’ll sleep when I’m dead

Beyond the wind
(I’ll sleep when I’m dead)
Beyond the soul
(I’ll sleep when I’m dead)
I will ascend
(I’ll sleep when I’m dead)
Into my hole

(Beyond the wind)
The grass grows long
(Beyond the soul)
Cutting off my circulation
(I will ascend into my hole)
Cut me down
Cutting off my circulation
Cut me down
Cut me down
Cut it down
Cut it
Track Name: Right Handed
Those bones of fire and ice
Those tales were larger than life
I won’t grasp with two hands
I won’t shake you down
It’s enough of a fuss
Call it what you will
Love will hold you still

Right handed and I can’t breathe
My left is always choking me
Its rusted foil I can’t believe

To the mountain
To the dust

Right handed and I can’t breathe
My left is always choking me
Its rusted foil I can’t believe

To the mountain
To the dust
Oh we must
Oh we must
Track Name: Everyones Alone
I’ve been staring at the TV static
All afternoon
Counting all the petty pardons
Here in my room

There’s no doubt about it
We all just hang our heads
There’s no thought behind it
We just fake it until the end

Everyone’s alone
Everyone’s alone
Everyone’s alone
Track Name: Cheer Up
I took a right turn swerving in the left lane acting like I didn’t care
I was a long shot waiting on the outskirts saying that I wasn’t there

You could cut dream
With your ocean of knives
Or you could be free
If you tried
If you tried

All this fears we try and fight with booze
For one more time to roll the dice and lose

I took a head start waiting for a money shot baby you came
Aching like a sourpuss breaking all the rules saying it’s such a shame

You could cut dream
With your ocean of knives
Or you could be free
If you tried
If you tried

All this shit we try and fight with booze
Let me roll the dice once more and lose

Cheer up
I didn’t want to make you cry
Cheer up
It’s such a long long road
Before we die
It’s such a long long road
It’s such a long long road
And on one knows why
It’s such a long long road
Before we die
And no one knows why
Track Name: Aquarius
Threw my caution to the wind
Poured myself another drink
It kept on pounding on my head
But only pooling for a bit

Wading through the alleyway

It’s up to my neck
And so cold
With baited breath
Stay on the line and please hold

Huddled together
With one rope
The other end dangles
The car’s on a slope

In the claws of the flood
When the ground turns to mud
Through the window pane escaped

Into the crawl space
(I lurked)
Looking for the outcome
(To come)
Ate soup, played games
Checking the optics for trust

And in the distance cries of help and pain
And you, the Judas in my life
Could save the day

It’s up to my neck
And so cold
With baited breath
Stay on the line and please hold

We struggle together
Or we suffer apart
Please hold to remember
When building your ark

I can’t breathe anymore
Don’t have the sense to my defense
No passion to my roar
Not anymore
It’s either or

We struggle together
Or we suffer apart
Please hold to remember
When building your ark

It’s up to my neck
And so cold
With baited breath
Stay on the line and please hold
Track Name: Helpless
If someone’s in need you’ll be there
The first to pull over
If someone’s finger disappears
You’ll be right there to hold it down

My father, my son
My blood and I’m done
Can’t go much further
The steaks grow higher around you

And I’m ashamed
And I’m amazed in you
You know it’s true

The fragile have a heart
And it beats with you
Right from the start
And it breathes anew

Why would you take the helpless home?
Why would you risk yourself alone?

Beaten to the road
Beaten to the ground
Beaten to the curb
When there’s no one around
And I walk right by
I don’t ask why
But I turned my head
And I saw you cry

And I’m ashamed
But I’m amazed in you
You know it’s true

Why would you take the helpless home?
Why would you risk yourself alone?

If someone’s in need you’ll be there
Black hoodie indeed
You’ll stop prepared
Track Name: Ashes
When I awoke in the middle of the night with the shock from sleeping off a dream
And I’m breathing all the oxygen that’s been warmed from the side effects burning off the steam

The sky was red
I don’t know why
I thought I was dead
At least dead tired

And all the ashes raining down like a terror from who knows where
Genuflecting to the sound as the sirens go by

Don’t follow my shoulder can’t handle the grasp
I’m sick of picking up your slack
Waiting too long for you to come back

When the sky turned red
And I don’t know why
I thought I was dead
At least dead tired

And all the ashes raining down, yeah the mountain’s on fire
Let’s genuflect to the sound as the sirens go by

The skyline breaks
And one side is flames
What do we do?
(The mountain’s on fire)

And your jaw shakes
And you fake it
To maintain
And keep sane
Track Name: Landline Tremors
When you called me on the phone thank god I was alone
It gave us a chance to speak about our momentary needs

I hung on the dial
Trapped in thought for a while
Comforting my denial
Until I’d lost you

It’s numb on the pulse
When the landline shakes and comes apart
You’re comatose
When the trigger blinks and you come apart

No fucking way I could have calmed down
I was raging like a bull
But now I see further
I wouldn’t let you off the line

I would have hung on the dial
Trapped in my thoughts for a while
Comforting my denial
Until I lost you

It’s numb on the pulse
When the landline shakes and comes apart
You’re comatose
When the trigger blinks and you come apart
Forever

I’m sick of that myth that fake façade
That pressure that bit when the demons start fucking my eye holes
I’m sick of living with the freaks and the frauds
I’m sick of myself
I’m sick of the odds

It’s numb on the pulse
When the landline shakes and comes apart
You’re comatose
When the trigger blinks and you come apart
Forever
Track Name: Bug
When I first met you all covered in blood
I knew you were my girl
I knew just what it was

Now you’re dancing on the living room floor
Every moment I wish for more
I hope that I won’t ever let you down
I hope I get to stick around

To share all I’ve gathered
Regale all I’ve lost
For my most precious love
At any cost

Such beauty surrounds you
And wraps you with love
Always struggles without you
A light from above

When I had nothing, there you were
Now you have everything, it’s such a blur

While you’re dancing on the living room floor
Every moment I wish for more
I hope that I won’t ever let you down
I hope I get to stick around
I hope that I won’t ever be afraid in the presence of you

Such beauty surrounds you
And wraps you with love
Always struggles without you
A light from above

When I first met you all covered in blood
I knew you were my girl
I knew just what it was

Now you’re dancing on the living room floor
Every moment I wish for more
I hope that I won’t ever let you down
I hope I get to stick around
I hope that I won’t ever be afraid
I hope that I won’t ever turn away
I hope that there never comes a day without you

Such beauty surrounds you
And wraps you with love
Always struggles without you
A light from above
A light from above
