Track Name: Way Down
you'll find me way down down I told you not to look for me underground you can always find me inside the sound of the echo of the echo of whoever's around when your body is at home and hiding from the body running around town you'll fight me weighed down by the thing you're fighting for the right to fight for you lost sight of the crown you can always hide it inside the body you found but don't listen to the water when it's telling your reflection you drowned you can't always fight it someday it'll be back around were all underground were all way down
Track Name: Bite The Hook
everybody's taking different little pieces from me and the holes are getting bigger everyday if I could find another single person in this species who could take a little piece of this pain away I might have something left to give to all of you right now I'm just skin that you can seen right through I left you with something you can't hold on to you can fight or bite the hook but don't look back on what you can't undo everybody's picking up the pieces and they're trying to make them fit into the new holes they made today the pictures of the people that we knew when we were new would do but they all started burning up and turning to grey I might have something left to give to all of you now I'm just a ghost that you can see right through I left you with something you can't hold on to you can fight or bite the hook but don't look back on what you can't undo
Track Name: Long Song
I won't hear anything you say when you shout to me as I drive away I'll turn my radio up all the way and I won't stop until the SanFransico bay I've got a couple friends who say I can stay but I won't stick around too long I've got to find somebody to take my mind of somebody who done me wrong oh but nobody will do I've only got eyes for you so I'm keeping them shut with this rabbit skin glue and I'll try to stop thinking get high to stop drinking and sink into the bottomless blue I won't hear anything they say when I'm wasting away by a full ashtray my baby blues turn sky scrapper grey when I lay on the floor on the sunniest day I know the air is sweeter riding in a two seater watching meter maids making the rounds but the golden gate bride has got seven eight kids trying to make it off and into the ground oh and I would take a dive if I forgot you were alive but you're a song that wont get out of my head and so I'll sing it to the flies that keep a circling my eyes until the day I figure out what you said you're a long long song oh but I keep singing along your'e a long long song oh but I keep singing it wrong
Track Name: Wish I Knew
you've been disappearing bit by bit I'm getting used to it but I can't stand it happening so slow you just woke me from an awful dream I had where you turned into sand oh no I tired to hold you but you slipped right through my hands I had to let you go we were like two cameras pointing at one another taking pictures of each other at the same time over developed under exposed forgot who you were when you took off your clothes oh I thought you were mine until you reminded me we'd lost our minds now I'll see you how I want to see you looking at me looking at you until you do what you want and stop doing what I want you to do I'll tell you what you want to hear I'll hear just what you want me to say oh you always seem to want to stick around until you want me to stay oh I miss who you were before who you are got in the way wish I knew wish I knew a little less about you now I'm talking to myself again but this time I'm not listening so how can I take my own advice? complete unawareness of ones self is the key to happiness and health so I'm not opening my eyes oh I was crazy to think that it was sane to want the same thing twice wish I knew wish I knew a little less about you
Track Name: Judas Tree
everything you lied about is coming true and everything you cried about is coming back to you I told you I would wait for you I've waited long enough you said that you would call me but I called your bluff everyone said take it as a sign everyone said take it with a grain of salt and you'll be fine but I'm taking it like it is and it's like a grain of sand stuck in my spine it's all coming true it's all been a lie we were on fire looked up at the sky looked down at the bottle the bottle was dry everything you dreamt about is coming to be and everybody warned you but they didn't bother me you talked about your memories like they were prophecy but the holes in your brain made holes in your stories like the moles by the Judas tree everyone said take it as a sign everyone said take it with a grain of salt and you'll be fine but I'm taking it like it is and it's like a grain of sand stuck in my spine it's all coming true it's all been a lie we know what to do were all going to die
Track Name: Dying In The Sunshine
I don't mind if you want to pass the time talking about people that you don't like I just don't like to and if you don't mind I'd rather spend my time talking to them about you because you've got a way of staying on my mind when my eyes turn from heavy to blind and I slip away in the middle of the day and the things you won't say leave shivers in my spine snd there's nothing I can do because I'm still just like you I tried to be someone who you'd want to be better to but you hate yourself more than I do and I only wish you knew that I just don't like to I don't mind if you want to pass the time laughing at the people dying in the sunshine it just makes me feel cold and if you don't mind I'd rather stay inside drinking until I don't feel old because I've got some bad dreams I've done some bad things I don't know the difference anymore but I've got some new songs you've got no clothes on let's stay the night on the floor because that's what I'm here for I wish I could say it was something more but I've never been so sure it's no different than before I just mean it in a different way when I say I'm dying to be yours
Track Name: My Best Friends Are Dead
my best friends are dead they've been dead since I met them it does them no good always running around they swallowed what they were fed filled up on bullshit that's easy to digest takes no work to keep it down but you get hungry so easy you throw up from sleeping until the truth seeps into you someday you'll drown I've been trying hard to take it easy I've been trying not to try I've been thinking of ways to make my brain slow down but I can't think of why my best friends are dead they've been dead since I met them it does me no good keeping them around I swallowed what they fed to me let the cold hands reach right through me I sucked the bones dry like a good friend ought to do and I'm still waiting to come to I won't let you let go no I let go of letting you though I know you'll still try to try wish you would get back in that hole down in the ground and stop asking me to die
