Track Name: Comedown
Slow me down if I'm going too fast
Make me dance, make it rain
Spin my head around, make it last
I need your hurtful arms around me
I need my crooked comedown to find me
Show me the truth behind your eyes
Your naked breasts beneath the ice
I want those frightening thoughts to guide me
My walls are leaking horror to blind me

You smell like the rain to me
You hold my breath to see,
For how long I can hold on
How long I can hold on

Blown away on the train out of town
Pick me up, firm your grip
Break me down, break me down
Your eyes have glanced too long behind me
Forever will and always to blind me
But only with you my hands are bound
Tucked down into your grip
About to snap you back if they were to find me
I never thought they ever would find me

But you've always been pale to me
I hold my head high to see
For how long this can go on
This never made no sense at all
And if I'd die before today
Or if I'd lie to stay
This won't ever go away
It'll never be okay
Track Name: Last Call
There's something in these waters
I don't think I feel it yet
But I've found an easy way to stand it
Drugs and cigarettes
Brother, my dear brother
Did you get my last call?
Ordinary grief
Extraordinary thief

I'm walking amongst strangers
And I've lost all self control
Have you got my number?
Call me when you're done
Listen to the silence of this poisoned Sunday night
I am made of silver
You are made of gold

Brother, my dear brother
Did you lose your self control?
Call me when it's over
Call me when it's done
Sometimes I am sure I hear you
Sometimes I am not
The sun is slowly dying up there,
All will come undone
Track Name: Moscow
I put my coat on inside out
So you won't see me while I hide
From all those things that lurks outside,
The pouring rain inside my mind

I wish you'd stay here by my side
Although this pounding pain I've been assigned
For these four years I've spent behind,
This inner beast I have designed

The only thing that turned me blind,
The only one I was denied

And by the time we reached Moscow
My love for this had disinclined,
With all those things that slipped my mind
You oughta know when you've gone blind

I want you here right by my side
To cease this pounding pain I've been assigned
For these six years I've spent behind,
The faces I won't recognize

The only one that turned me blind
The only one I was declined
Track Name: 070526
Why do I always get the feeling that she's looking straight at me?
I laid my love down on the ground
I sold my life to a smoke machine
Cause that's all we are, and that's all we'll be
Diamonds in the sink
She took off her clothes as I lost the key to wherever I want to be

And as the rain keeps pouring down
And when the clouds still covered the sky
There was a riot near the border and the streets were filled with dust
Forget bout' this town, forget bout' the smiles
Forget all about our dreams
If you still were alive you wouldn't like what you'd see
A constant misery

I feel near as frail as porcelain
And she is near as cold as snow
I used to love her more than everything
She used to shine as bright as gold
See that's all there is, and that's all there'll be
I'm stuck with this disease
Now I'm sleeping alone, pulled the cord to my phone
Is this all I'm gonna be?

Why do I always get the feeling that she's staring straight at me?
I laid my love right down on the ground
I sold my soul to a smoke machine
Cause that's all we are, and that's all we'll be
Diamonds in the sink
She took off her clothes, I lost the key to wherever I want to be
Track Name: 1000 Hours
I'm talking backwards to myself
I couldn't spell it out just clear enough to get my point through and out
And now you're looking at me funny
I don't want to come inside
But there's a different part of myself I'm struggling to keep up with
And now I'm lying to myself again

And if I lie here on my own
Or If I'd die here all alone
Just tell me that you'd take me down
You'll let me out
Just another dollar blown for rock and roll

I've got a bad fever again
You didn't bring it up, strangely enough,
So maybe you have finally forgotten
Or ran out of lies to tell me
I've been struggling just enough,
But to your judging eyes it's a surprise,
To see that I'm not able to go further
And I won't ever find it funny

Another crack in the movie screen
A different song on the tambourine
Just keep it up,
I'd kill some time just to get it right
But you would rather waste your nights away
Than spend them all on me

She's not the type,
She's not the type
She's not the type that lends her heart to me
In one way or the same,
She's not the type (she's not the type)
She's not the type (she's not the type)
She's not the type that gives her love away
At any time or any place
Track Name: Tonight
I'll be waiting here until my conscience clear
It's hard to force these words
For the better or for the worse
I'll be waiting here until my thoughts are clear
I should've never shown
You should've never known

But tonight you'll feel it too
Tonight I'll stay with you

(C'mon and be,
My doll, c'mon and be)
Track Name: Vague Senses and Vain Melodies
She smiled at me from beneath,
Yellow strobing streetlights
And gone again like a ghost
I tend to fall for everything
And then this silence I can't comprehend
You took the fall for me,
And so I fell for you
Into the crust and the tilt
Shallow figurine of guilt
Darken up now, honey bunny
It is time to pretend

(You've got to reconsider every word to be a winner)

She looked as if the sun just cracked
In the back of the buzz,
There is no turning back
So I forget and I learn and I raise the bar
And go a hundred million miles,
Just to get to where you are
I'd like to learn your name,
I'd like to start a flame
I'd play the perfect game
I would go all the way
But your eyes won't fix on me
Your eyes won't fix on me

Hard to impress, hard to suppress
Like venom in my blood
I know I'll never forget
Head alone in the night when the snow still fell
Although it may not hurt now,
Buckle up for the bang
Love your eyes are dead cold
Can you give me a sign?
I can't do this alone
I can't take this on by myself
Pavement sky, starry night, city lights
Like a bullet to the back
Your knife cuts deeper than mine

The smack and the tilt
She's my figurine of guilt
The pepper of this afternoon

Coax me,
I want to feel your love just like I did before you hoaxed me
Out of everything and everyone
It chokes me like a pillow pressed against my face
And soaks me in my own denial
Track Name: Slugs
I took my time to recognize
And realize the time's gone by
I took you off, worn you out
Your hands are cold
And so are mine

I warmed you up fifteen times
You cut me off and broke me down
And crawled away into the woods
Where the rain won't fall
And sun won't hurt
You called me up and said some things
Bout how much it hurt to be with me
Now it's all alright, very fine
You've had some luck but I've lost all mine

Took my time, apologize
Spit it out and say goodbye
Cause you look so good
And you dance so fine
And you look so good
And we'd dance all night
But her tongue is sharp
Eyes are harsh
Stop me right before I start

It's time for a something
I don't know
Been hooked onto something
You're all wrong
You're all wrong
All along
You're all wrong

You called me up fifteen times
Cut me out and break me down
Track Name: The Void
Death is after me,
Death is at my door
Everyone will see
Everyone will know
I hate all my friends
I wish they would die
Death is calling me,
Death keeps calling me
I am not afraid
I can see you staring
Death is at my door
Everyone will know
Everyone will go
Everyone will hear
People they have ears
Everyone will hear
I don't miss you yet
You still haven't left
I'll miss you when you're gone
Maybe after that
I want you to die
I wish you were dead
I want you to die
It's wrong to force a smile
I want you to die
