Track Name: House Squares
hello my friends, the beginning is the end.
everything quite frankly, is all fucked up.
in addition if i might add, a cold war is here.
look around, look around, look around…there is a russian beside you.
all the aliens are here on earth and all our cities are collapsing.
the house you live in is actually a tiny box.
where nothing aligns and nothing makes sense and nothing means nothing.
as i said, the beginning is the end.
Track Name: Friends Don't Call
friends dont call, but that just goes to show that you dont always know
who can heal and who can hurt.
I'm always the last one to know, i'm always the last one to show, i'm always the last one
forgive and forget.
tension between us builds, we both can see the truth lying between us
louder and louder still.
friends dont call, the past is filled with words, filled with bitter hollow words
fair weather friends.
Track Name: The Best Way To Drown
terror from the sun, cancer for everyone.
the price that you are worth, has been deducted since birth.
subtract shadow from the form, a hollow silhouette.
there is terror from the sun, cancer for everyone.

here comes the waves, over the mountain side
wash me away, wash away all of our lives
family and friends last image in my mind
so this is the end, please let the pain be kind.

the more i figure out, the less i figure out.
a whore on new years eve, the best you've ever had.
demons let you sit around, the best way to drown.
the more i figure out, the less i figure out about life.

there is death up above you and death down below
lets laugh in its face and pretend not to know
Track Name: Placeholder
hold my hand, and remember your place
I'm here for now, but I can't help but look at other faces

It's been a while, I need some style again
and when I'm through, I'm hoping you will understand
that I can't commit to anything
but you're big and strong, the day is long, so please be my
the line's so long, please hold my spot
hey I'm back, you can leave now, thanks a lot

you're my friend, always till the end
well I'm bored, you'll be ignored, that's the trend
cuz I can't commit to anything
but you're big and strong the day is long, so please be my
Track Name: One Time Daisy Fee
I was injured by an ambulance, as ironic as that is
I blacked out and woke up in your arms
but thats just a fairy tale for kids.
one time daisy fee.
so then I decided to throw caution out, I confessed my love out to the wind
I think thats when I finally found you there, no punishment and no sin.
one time daisy fee.

oh my god there are sharks on either side
of this sinking ship and we cant run and hide
far away from them, far away forever

i'm misunderstood, i'm punching at the sky
like a violent angry little ant.
but nothing makes you feel more insignificant, then being aware of that simple fact.
one time daisy fee.
everything repeats and then repeats again
i'm stuck on a tuesday or its stuck on me
all this bullshit piles up and up
I scream so inappropriately.
one time daisy fee.
Track Name: Break My Neck
i had it all, sky before me
woke from that dream, the crowd adored me
in the same flash, in a messed up scene
enter this play of a cast mismatched.
nobody has a script
everyone is sick of it
one deep breath, sad but true
one deep breath, leads to you

break my neck, break my neck to
break my neck to see the stars, the stars explode above.

the feel machine, feeling nothing
like burning whores, like burning dirt
all at once, your eyes shot open
in the same flash, the spotlight blinding.
Track Name: Better Than The Movies
everyone knows that i'm a fraud.
everyone knows i'm a fake.
i'm really a fraud, i'm really quite sad.
i'm just a memoir of a ghost, crumpled up on the ground.
please keep me around, please god keep me around.
but everything you say, has been scripted anyways.
Track Name: Impossible Mathematics
january is such a lonely month, for a full time santa clause
nobody needs you, there is no laughter
life is just put on pause.
impossible mathematics driving me to drink
hands clenched white upon the wheel, so tight I cannot think.

deep in love, cant escape
trapped inside a world that glows and nobody knows.
fresh air outside, laughter outside
you'd love to join.
tv screen has walls so high, pixelated view.

I was just a peasant, hoisted high above the crowd.
i'm truly nothing special, I just hope I made my father proud.
Track Name: Crimson Area Rug
The dinner was grand, we raised our glasses
We hoped this liquid in a box would alter our chances
of our fate to come, the deal's done
our bodies strewn across a crimson area rug.

the demon came and took my name
she said, "you're just a product of your fucked up generation".
but the past is gone, it wasn't that great
nostalgia porn won't get me off, no not today.

why should anyone stare at me all the time?

my body's oiled, my shoes have holes
forced into moving into rhythm all at once
and here it is, our fateful night
reduced to stupidly ignoring all of our plights.
Track Name: On Company Time
you expected the good life, to be knocking at your door
but heaven is full and not taking requests and the devil is lazy for sure.
on company time, on the company dime
I will raise my glass to you
on company time, on the company dime
I will write this song for you.

when you were young you would dance, but now your body would collapse.
with every year and every new wrinkle
they wont allow you to play.
Track Name: Pretty Lil' Paintin'
pretty lil' paintin' all fucked up, I like you that way.
if this is it, then kill me now.
