Track Name: I Don't Want To Make Love
walk across the glass
with your face on mine
float up to the sky
your eyes the size
of the moon tonight
of the stars up high
please leave me alone
please just take me home

i don't want to stay
well you paid
so just say
you can say
what you may
oh
i don't want to stay
well you made
your own day
so just lay
until may
oh
i don't want to make love

you can breathe again
i won't make a sound
i will just be the one
waiting for the gun
waiting to be crushed
by my own doubt
take the crazy route
bile out your mouth
believe every word
coming out of yours
have some blind faith
start to see what you see
with my own eyes
start to hear what i hear
the night makes no sense
you're my only friend

i don't want to stay
well you paid
so just say
you can say
what you may
oh
i don't want to stay
well you made
your own day
so just lay
until may
oh
i don't want to make love
Track Name: Next Thing I Knew
you woke me up from the nightmare
i was lying in your soft mattress
you poked my side with your finger
until i saw the black sunset

next thing i knew
it was you on the floor
your eyes were fixed
to the knob of our door
it was the end of
a chapter of my youth
turning every lie
into a cold, ruthless truth

it was day after day in the hospital
you were the hostage, we're the criminal
you were no longer able to speak a thing
as a child, i was left wondering

next thing i knew
it was you in the coffin
you were beautified
like an old moviestar
and as the credits rolled
the family came tumbling
every knot you tied
every day was untangling

next thing i knew
i don't even speak to daddy
i pass him by and
he's just like everybody
and i really hate
my brother he reminds me
of my ex boyfriend
who used to beat me
Track Name: Feel So Dry
i feel so dry
coz i've seen myself with you
yet i feel so alive
coz i'm away from you
but why do i cry
if it's all so quiet and done
shouldn't i be high
to finally have gone
to finally have gone
you hold my hand too tight,
i see a mark
it's red and it sparks
a debate in my eyes
i ask if it's proof of your love
or just a sign from god telling me to leave
are you telling me to leave
i feel so dry
coz i lose myself in you
i feel so alive
when i've got you under my skin
why do i fight
when you're already within
shouldn't i be satisfied
to have you in sin
you clue me in
you tune me down as if i'm just a sound
the sound of a door closing
but i'm too high i can't answer anything
it's just a sign telling me to leave
are you telling me to leave
please
don't tell me
Track Name: Why Do You Keep
the night grows dark and restless
my crescent heart calls
yet i've never known a full moon
roaming these twisted halls

why do you keep on calling my name
why do you keep
on believing i've stayed the same
why do you keep
on holding on to that picture
why do you keep
on falling deeper

my ears ring with looming breaths
of saints unsung and unmartyred
trembling like a strand of your hair
alone and minutes from disappearing
a rope brushes against my neck
temptation to end it all

why do you keep on calling my name
why do you keep
on believing i've stayed the same
why do you keep
on holding on to that picture
why do you keep
on falling deeper
Track Name: Mystery
you have no idea how important this is
you can't let me build it up then take the piss
wasn't i always there when you needed me
wasn't i always there, didn't you see

all i need was one active day
and i promise i'll be out of your way
then you won't see me again in this street
where i go will remain a mystery

wasn't i always there when you needed love
wasn't i always flying like a turtle dove

now you won't see me again in this street
where i went will remain a mystery
Track Name: Murder Murder
saw you in the room yesterday
looked like a stranger
did not recognize your face
but i saw the danger
you said you weren't gonna hurt me
that you're too far away
i could have commited murder
locked away, insane
i came here to make you feel bad about yourself
i came here to throw you head first in the water
if i saw you again, i'd do what my mother told me
she said not to do a thing if there's no goodness in my heart
if i talked to you again, i'd do what my father told me
he said not to let people dick me around
i came here to burn you with this stare
i came here to hold you under my spell
and it's not like what we had really mattered in the end
you don't even feel bad about it
and it's not like what we had really mattered in the first place
you don't even feel sore about it
Track Name: Through Someone Else's Contact Lenses
do you have any idea how evil you are
standing here in this very spot
do you have any idea how much air you let pass
breathing in and out of this rut

and i ask when are you gonna start seeing things
through someone else's contact lenses
when are you gonna start packing your things
park your car, now you know you blew your chances

and i know that you wanna blow
things out of proportion
and i could have let you
do your business
although it was never regular

and i ask when are you gonna start seeing things
through someone else's contact lenses
when are you gonna start packing your things
park your car, now you know you blew your chances
Track Name: Prolly
that's probably why i believed in your smile
that's probably why i dreamt that you died
but it was all in my head
i woke up and i was alone in my bed
that's probably when the summer ended
that's probably how the rain started
but it was all in my head
i woke up and i was alone in my bed
that's probably why all my friends left
that's probably how i lost all of them
but it was all in my head
i woke up and i was alone in my bed
and it was all in my head
i woke up and i was alone in my bed
Track Name: Brandon Part 4
play with me, beloved
take the road less travelled from
the other side
i can feel your body trembling, babe
i can see you're not ready so you can stay
waking up from dreaming
still half blind from all the things
you think you can see
muttering some nothings
your forehead's hot and sweating
fire on an angel's wing
i can feel your body trembling, babe
i can see you're not ready so you can stay
i place my finger tips on your lips
and they blaze
i'll make it rain
i can sense your urgent need for love
i can hear the sirens from up above
if you want i can make them stop
kiss the pain away
Track Name: Flag Ceremony
i see myself in the yard
saluting the flag
and in my palm, beads of hot,
terrified sweat
i easily make some friends
but i know, i'll lose them again
how many days do i have to linger
how many days do i have to be a sinner
so i take off to somewhere i don't need
to talk
in the ghostly halls of a hospital wing
i walk
then i ride the elevators looking at
all the sinners
while a voice inside my head tells me i'm flying
tells me i'm falling
tellls me i'm dying
so i go home at the end of the long day
i pretended
to them i'm just one of those happy
little students
i easily make some friends
but i know, i'll lose them again
how many days do i have to linger
how many days do i have to be a sinner
Track Name: Suicide Years
i'm lonelier today
than i have ever been
the sun is out and proud
and the kids are playing
but all i feel is bad
i don't care
i'm so sad
you can have your cake
i will have my lonely bed
when you try to make me smile
i never could
and when you say okay
get up with me
i never would
why can't you just leave
like so many others have
i know you care for me
what i want is your love
what i want is your love
Track Name: Your Room
you tell me to
turn it off
but i negotiate
and i turn it down
and that's okay
with you

it's monday and you always hate when
you can hear
what the hell i'm watching
maybe on friday or as soon as tuesday
we can find
a common ground

you know i love being with you
in this room you call home
when all places banish you
to this room you call home

maybe tomorrow, you will be
in the mood
to do something else,
something better
maybe tomorrow, your arms won't be
as weak as they are today,
as they are always

you know i love being with you
in this room you call home
when all places banish you
to this room you call home
