Track Name: Some
I wont be strange
Or super jaded
You tried to grown to hate it but I
Gave it all away

I would be strange
Or condescending
You have to right to right me I
Lost by splitting hairs.

I am
Just a little bit scared
Calm down
Push me push me... Breathe

I wont give in
Quite as lightly
Its coming from me now
The innocence, it kills
Ill crack your knees
Start screaming
whining and plead
Pleading with me

I am
Just a little bit scared
Calm down
Push me push me... Breathe

Some give up
Some give in
Some just say
"Whats your attitude on, your attitude on this?"
Some pleaded
Some cheated
Some just said
"Whats your attitude on, your attitude on this?"
Feel the same?
Look the same?
Your the same?
You look just like me

A heart attack
A land mine
A wiskey flask to
Waste the time away

Simple lessons
Are lost on you
A simple lie
A lie to sell a truth
Today

Could it be so wrong
Could you walk away?
You had no right to say
Say your with me
Ill crack your knees
Start screaming
whining and plead
Pleading with me
Track Name: Tin Foil Hats
With tin foil hats we headed out west
Neither had a clue, but we both know best
We wrap the past in ribbons and chains
We keep the present in paper bags

Oh but I
Feel
Lost and contagious
In your eyes outrageous
And I
Feel
Sane

We slip the boundaries of our creche
Ill horde these memories till my death
With sound conviction we seek out blame
But late at night we remember shame

Oh but I
Feel
Lost and contagious
In your eyes outrageous
Yea I
Feel
Sane

Jet black firebird seeks the sun
Interlocked with you and we have just begun
You never left
Though you should have tried
Im glad you didn't
Cause I'd have died

Oh but I
Feel
Lost and contagious
In your eyes outrageous
Yea I
Feel
Sane

Jet black firebird seeks the sun
Interlocked with you and we have just begun
You never left
Though you should have tried
Im glad you didn't
Cause I'd have died
Track Name: Wanton Me - Live
Trail of shivers down my spine as I elevate the sea
Blame your parents, blame your god, just don't point yourself at me

Me, Wanton Me

Couldn't quite control myself
as it is plain to see
Your own gods a fucking prototype
for me wanton me

Me Wanton Me

Got my eyes closed
Got my mind wide open
or so it would seem
to me wanton me

Just ignore I suppose
That the world runs counter
To the world I see
For me wanton me

Polo is the shirt of choice
For assholes and pricks like me
Just pack up your bags and run like hell
From me wanton me

me wanton me

Got my eyes closed
Got my mind wide open
or so it would seem
to me wanton me

me wanton me
Track Name: Third Rail
Valentine
You shine
You never run away
And you will
Be the man
Zoe needs you to be
We played
Where the blade
Nearly cut you away from me
When you smile
I smile
It just means so much to me

Stay Away, Stay Away from the third rail

Hands tight, your side
Wash the bloodstains from your hair
You smile
We cried
you saw Clarence there
And you are
The reason why
I believe in God today
Rejoice
And shout
You are still, but you are not still

And we
Realize
we still need each other
All
They unspoken
Dead lies
Come with me sister/brother
and you are the reasons why
I believe in God today
Rejoice
And shout
We are still, but we are not still

Stay Away, Stay Away from the third rail
Track Name: Shimmer and Fade
The clocks conspire
The sheets fall away awhile
A bigger denial
I fall asleep tonight and smile

Stay with me
Cause I’m less than electric
Keep the seeds
Burry them hide them till they shine

“Its fine to sing
But don’t ever let them hear you”
Thoughts a disease
Let it scream
Shake them all away

In harmonies
We seek the unique and unseen
We fall on our knees
Just to cope with the larger things


Refrain

Hold fast bide your time
For one sweet moment you shimmer and shine
We spin around and all fall dead
Don’t worry son its in your head


Come close don’t speak dear
Its better not to know than to know fear
What you seek, it cannot hurt you unless you find it
it will desert you

You cannot sleep, and thats OK
Outbursts of stress to start they day
We spin around and all fall dead
Don’t worry son its all in your head

You shimmer
You shimmer and fade away
Shimmer
Shimmer and fade away
Track Name: We
Locked inside together
A subtle trend
Another oxymoron and your a friend
Head above the water
A state of grace
You begin to lose it
I love your face

Us together, you and me
Lost forever, I to We
I see myself and abuse it
Dont take it away I dont want to lose it
Hold
Me down
Ill burn
The ground

Hurry so we can be wiped away
Another oxymoron and you cant stay
Your sick
Diseased
Despised
You need help
We'll wipe away our souls and enter hell

Us together, you and me
Lost forever, I to We
I see myself and abuse it
Dont take it away I dont want to lose it
Hold
Me down
Ill burn
The ground
