Track Name: Bad Guys
Save it tonight
Don’t need to hear these words again.
Just watch the lights as they grow dimmer
And make their way into the night again.
I’ve let these walls take up my time again.

Hey it’s alright
I’m just a little mad. It’s all ok
Just hold me tight
Grasp all my innards.
Don’t let them slip and strangle you insane.
Hold onto your brains.

Chorus:
Don’t, don’t be afraid.
You, you know my name.
Can’t let the bad guys find you,
Can’t let the bad guys find you,
Can’t let the bad guys find you.
Oh where will we hide you?

I mean no harm
When I say you’re nothing anyway.
Just take my arm. Just take a chance to
Commit to something totally unplanned
You have my heart, just hold onto my hand.

Let’s make this last.
We’ll be like Sal and Gala just the same.
We’ll have no past.
We’ll take these moments
And make something so beautifully insane.
Disconnect the dots and love our ways.

Don’t disappear.
Without your words they’ll take up all my brain.
You’ve made it clear,
We’re different pieces
Your walk, your eyes, your face is on display
Until you rot and they take up your space
Track Name: Hypoxia
Leave some space in this diving bell
For my stifled cries
Now we share the same oxygen
My lungs have dried.

Summer covered secret sins and I
Hovered over lover’s hope and
Believed all of your lies
But I’m not surprised
Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh
Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh.

Summer leaves have come and gone
The snow hides no lies.
Still I cling to the blanket of
Your shifting eyes

Summer covered secret sins and I
Hovered over lover’s hope and
Believed all of your lies
Track Name: Neuronfire
I can’t see through your eyes
But I know it’s unkind
I can’t escape the disappointed thoughts in your head
You wish I were dead, I know
And you cannot tolerate the effects of my neuronfire
You just can’t wait for chance to see
I knew it wouldn’t last
You just can’t wait for chance
You just can’t take that chance

You don’t know who’s behind you
Like a knife on the ides
Just keep your smiling mouth beneath scared eyes
Yeah you’re afraid, I know you’re afraid, I know oh oh
It’s not just the question of what is to come
You won’t dare give them a chance to see
What behind that glance

Don’t you worry, now its
Too late to sell you out
Don’t you captivate the friends you make
With lies, I won’t let you
Fall fall fall on something else
But me
Call call call your bluff and save some face
But my distaste won’t flee

It’s not just the question of who are you now
Your fake smile, your slight of hand
Makes me want to throw up
And you want me down prostrate on the ground
And I can’t deny
You’ve had them in your hands
But I wont dare give you the chance

Track Name: Aftermath
One scene of a movie
The lights go out but blackness is all that you see
“Don’t be long,” says the concierge
You talk but no vibrations in the air
Where is home? Where’s my footing? What’s out there?

What do you do when you can’t read time, time?
Excuse me sir, do you know the time, time?

There is
A place where I
Can go with closed eyes.
There is
A fish finger vibe
In my rhubarb pie.

Two scenes of a movie
Suddenly a burst of light explodes within me
“It won’t be long,” says the concierge,
“Before vibrations alarm in the air”
Oxygen. Someone begins to stare
Something about my consciousness isn’t there.

What do you do when you can’t read time, time?
Excuse me sir, do you know the time, time?
Somebody tells me this all the time, time.
What? We do this so how many time, times?
Track Name: Bus Stop
Centuries avoiding my ennui
Missed the bus stop, fell asleep
Oh rainy sky help me.
All emotions broken free
Oh rainy sky help me.

Centuries avoiding my ennui

Centuries avoiding my ennui
Don’t make me wander into thoughts unleashed
Oh rainy sky help me
All emotions broken free
Oh rainy sky help me

Centuries.
Track Name: Papaver Somniferum
The sun’s color’s fade,
Washed out by the rain,
Streaking the poppies grey.
What won’t age?
What won’t age?

You seemed to relate to the words
I create and mold and shape
And you said
“Nothing’s changed,
Nothing’s changed.”

It seems like years ago,
You whispered in my ear and I found
The years that slip and flow
Down, down, down
Away and fade,
Away and fade.

Where’s that middle place that used to
Erase the fears I faced and dreaded?
What is safe?
What won’t change?

You crept in to stay,
And stole it away,
With all my books and magazines.
You tainted life with your foul taste.

It seems like years ago,
You whispered in my ear and I found
The years that slip and flow
Down, down, down
Away and fade,
Away and fade.

I’m blue and grey,
I’m blue and grey.
My colors fade,
I’ve wasted away.
Track Name: Nightstand Treasures
Tuesday went by slowly,
Friday…
Two days to watch walls
Its
Monday and I hear you
One look my memory’s erased
Tuesdays I’ve no time to meet you
Coffee?
You smile.
No remorse, you rape blackberries
With whipped cream
I smile.

Within my stupid laugh, the way my beard grows
Patch by patch I share my secrets that you hold so dear
Within your silly smile, the way your mind
Leaps miles and miles you share you secrets
That I hold so dear.
It’s not the same I can’t explain, you wouldn’t get it,
and so bit by bit I help you disappear.
Then you complain and scream my names
And now it’s over but I look,
You eyes begin to tear.

Your pupils made of memories, you speak
So vulnerably my shield leaks
Colors
Hidden, in your secret nightstand
My pupils made of memories, I speak

Tuesday went by slowly,
Friday
You’d rather watch walls
It’s Monday and I hear you
Fuck you
I want my memory erased
Tuesday I’ve no time to meet you
It’s too late
You sigh
No remores
You start packing
I’m seething
You cry…
Track Name: Samantha's Pet
You keep me in your toy box,
Latching my tool of fun,
Exploring the world with your pussy.
I can’t keep you from messing around,
But I hope you end up with me.
Samantha, Dear Samantha.
Ooh, Ooh…

I’ll just keep me pretending,
To my friends be condescending.
I wish I had their stability
I tell myself “I don’t care” at night.
“I’ll be alright. You’re in love with me.”
Samantha, I love you.
Ooh, Ooh…

You keep me so unhappy
But I would die if you went away.
Tell me, Will you just drag me around?
What have I found?
Will I stay?
Samantha

You’re killing…
You’re killing….
Me and you
Ooh, ooh…

Don’t go away, Samantha.
Oh, don’t go away Samantha
