Track Name: Dark Me
Dark Me
You wake me from the dead,
then cut off my head...
I laugh until there's no more sound (sound)
If the floor was vibrating then my hearts a mile under ground.
Ha, ha.
(sound)

"Fireworks in my head,
is all you ever were" they said.
Knees quick, teeth cut red.
Or ask for help instead.

But the darks in us,
Though it's harder for me because I am not that tough (sound)

You wake me from the dead,
then cut off my head...
We laugh because there's no more sound (sound)
The floor was vibrating and my hearts a mile underground.

I know it's not clear but you've got to take your turn.
Dressed in fire, it's your head to burn.

But the darks in us,
Though it's harder for me because I am not that tough. (sound)
The darks in us. (sound)
Track Name: Breathe Through
Breathe Through
You move,
In-between forever,
I will see you,
whenever you remember
that the clock moves,
without you.

Stay there,
an inch away from heaven.
They don't need you.
Through the eye of some needle
not like we do.
So breathe through.

Gold ran,
through you veins like engines
and I want to be there.
Heart beat,
dims until nothing enters
and I want to be there.
I want to be there.

Breathe through, breathe through.
Track Name: Nervous
Nervous
If you are feeling nervous,
in this dark light.
Hung out to dry and voiceless,
I'm two of me at the same time.

I know I should have gone home by now,
it's just a dead dark dream.
Paint flaked plain fake hurricane earthquake,
and both of them are me.

I can't get out of this,
if I said what you mean.
I can't get out of this,
when both of them are me.

I know I should have gone home by now,
this cadence collared me.
Held a wish under my tongue,
for so long I can't speak.

I can't get out of this,
in this dark dream.
I can't get out of this,
there's no way to make it clean.
No way to get free.
No way to make it me.
If I love you that's what I mean,
and I love you so that's what I mean.
Maybe no one ever knows.
Track Name: Dreamlike Dream
Dreamlike Dream
You took away the world,
and pushed it through the light of your eye.
Hallucinate to daydream,
a fevers the only cure I ever tried.
When you said to make a wish,
I just had nothing in my mind.
When you say to make a wish,
I can never,
decide.

In-between the daylight,
a possession in this dreamlike dream.
Heaven when it hurts,
a hundred horses drowning in the sea.
Everything seems real,
though I know none of this could be.
Nothings ever real,
in or out of this dreamlike,
dream.

Your red lips in the mirror,
practicing dead light,
you want it to be forever,
but I think awhile is fine.
I looked and found nothing,
daylight lied to me at night.
I looked and found nothing,
but I'm not sure if I ever really,
tried.

I want to feel that good.
I want to feel that good.
Track Name: Oh-H
Oh-H

Check.
Last in the crowd,
teeth,
eeeth,
Please plead.
Please.
Ah, Oh.
There's no limit here.
If you're the last in the crowd,
teeth... please, ah.
Plead, ah.
Oh, oh, H, H, D, Destruction.

Oh-H-D Destruction.
Track Name: Alphabet Girl
Alphabet Girl
Alphabet girl,
on high-wire shoes.
I can't count the symptoms that brought me,
to her and you.
Alphabet Girl,
what is your other world...
Was it a boy in your bedroom,
and her name was the same,
to you.

Madness walks by,
her head on fire, I sighed.
She smiled when I caught her eye,
but didn't even break her stride.

Portrait girl,
I'm desperate in your,
I stretched a spiderweb around myself,
devour me as my penance.
I know you're pale in the afterlife but I didn't know
I'd suffer like this.

A hundred-thousand times,
church bell rang twice.
I don't need to call you anything
when you hits wrapped around my mind.
Madness walked by,
her head and heart on fire, I sighed,
She smiled when I caught her eye,
but didn't even break her stride.

Alphabet girl, goodbye alphabet girl.
Track Name: Deceiver
Deceiver
Can I take this light with me?
The colors are all grieving.
I'm a thief of time in your dreams,
a criminal.

The lavender on your wrists,
and the twilight in your grip.
The fear's what we have,
so it's the fear that fits.

The rain pours down
like a church song.
We stoned Jesus Christ
on the ladder.
Serpents hissed redemption songs,
bloody hands where the fangs belonged.

The lavender on your wrists,
and the twilight in your grip.
The fear's what we have
so it's the fear that fits.

Believe in me deceiver.
Consolations in your arms.
Let the lies all surround me,
and the ache it stays strong.
Believe in me deceiver.
Let this one be the last.
Let the waves move around us.
The plague will kill,
then the plague will pass.

Believe in me deceiver.
Believe in me deceiver.
Believe in me deceiver.
Believe in me deceiver.
Track Name: Seahorse/Hummingbird
Seahorse/Hummingbird
Rays return to the golden dawn.
The stars look different,
and the nightingales gone.
Can you still sing to some self
some where.

All you are is what you've never been,
slight of hand drawn with an azure pen.
Fell to the earth as someone new.

Painted birds all around your head.
A cast iron handful of silhouettes,
even the hummingbird and seahorse stared.

Someday has come and now it will never end,
A ferris wheel spun by a malcontent.
Transgressed and transgress unto me.

Leading actor in a remake film,
destiny up against the kill.
Rotate free,
as though at will.

Mortal explains the lightning bolt.
Poison pill the salvation of revolt.
Your crystal ball always spoke back,
daydream sewn into the mask.

Black badge under a blood sky.
The dogs are all out looking for alibis,
they eat fever words and haven't got caught,
they stare at the camera and ask,
"Is that all you got?"

Film holds your image,
yeah, a reckless dare.
The hot sun moves like I'm not even there.
An open wound,
and hatred to share.

The rays return to the golden dawn.
Track Name: Dead Ends
Dead Ends
"All" hands in the air.
You don't care what they're singing for.
Do you?
You'll be down on the floor
and still think they won't come for you.
They do.

I made peace with the poison pen
and the wolf in my clothes, huh.
Your dyed blue colored voice howls
to the lions that hunt in my heart...
ah, so it goes...
I won't live in your dead ends.

We're in a position,
we've never been in before.
It's true.
I'm in a position
where I can see them close the door
on you.
They'll say,
"Can it get any darker?"
"Like your hand was moving...
into your pocket
...somehow it was soothing."
We won't live in your dead ends.

You tied hate in the air,
dark me evermore
in bloom.
I stayed awake in this dream
but that's a thing they make you pay for,
so pay I do.
We're in a position.
We won't live in your dead ends.
