Reckless 04:32
Cocksure and perverse, I came at you like a man would spit fire and it worked, had you eating out of my hand and now you know, now you know, so it goes I was reckless with your heart I was careless with your love I was foolish with your heart what do I have to show for it pictures I’ll never print victories I regret and if we had it to do all over again, would I even let you in if we had it to start at the beginning, would I even let you kiss me Train blares in the night as this rain comes pouring down this scream turns me inside out, ripped at the seam I come undone, ripped at the seam, I see your gleam shining

Blue Whale 04:35
Missed my class today, cuz I don’t care about Kant anyway. You’re just a means to an end for me that’s what I tell myself to keep from going insane I want to sleep away the day. Not dream about anything just pretend, just pretend, just pretend I’m just a big blue whale lost inside the deep dark ocean. wanna jump inside my right brain, stay awhile like I’ve had a stroke of good luck not attached to anyone, just a part of everyone But I don’t care about you. No, I don’t think about you, your hair lips your eyes just like the sky falling down on me, oh oh, won’t you fall on me, oh oh won’t you fall for me I want to sleep away the day, not dream about anything just pretend, just pretend, just pretend, I’m just a big blue whale, lost inside the deep dark ocean want to jump inside my right brain, and stay awhile like I’ve had a stroke of good luck not attached to anyone, just a part of everyone I’m just a big blue whale, swimming on the sea of my right brain

Take Me Now 02:54
When I said, I’m so lonely, what I meant was, I want you When I said, you’re crazy, I shoulda said, Take me now When I wanted to say I love you, instead I said, Let’s make this work This will never work You stood in the doorway waiting for me your finger on the pulse of my empathy and I am no stranger to this kind of waltz you took your time When I said, I’m so lonely, what I meant was, I want you When I said, you’re crazy, what I meant was, Take me now Take me now, take me now You tapped on my window late last night, a buzz in my throat that I couldn't reach and I am no stranger to this kind of waltz, I took my time and I wasted yours I wanted to say so many things, I wish I had, I wish I had now

It takes a long time to die to yourself It takes a long time to kill all those fleshly desires but I’m so tired of dying for you and for the first time I’m living for myself tasting all of the lusts of the flesh, of desire and I’m on fire, I’m on fire Beautiful bird why don’t you fly away Beautiful bird why don't you spread your wings Beautiful bird why are you lingering still Beautiful bird why don’t you fly from here I’m letting you go now, I’ve opened the door I’m letting you go now, I’m saying goodbye cuz you have been my closest ally for half my life Cuz I believed the lie that I can’t make anything I believed the lie that I can’t make anything good I believed the lie that I can’t make anything I believed the lie that I can’t make anything good without you I’m letting you go now, I’ve opened the door I’m letting you go now, I’m saying goodbye cuz you have been my closest ally for half my life Beautiful bird why don’t you fly away Beautiful bird why don't you spread your wings Beautiful bird why are you lingering still Beautiful bird why don’t you fly from here It takes a long time to die to yourself It takes a long time to kill all those fleshly desires but I’m so tired of dying for you

I want to sing you a love song but I don’t know the words and I’m so afraid now to let you in again and I don’t know how or where or when I will see you again All I know right now, all I know right now is I miss you so badly, I miss you so badly when I’m away from you Remember when we used to dance all night in my room and you’d sing oh so sweetly, you’d sing oh so sweetly in my ear. But this feels so right now, this feels so good now, this feels so right now, but I miss you so badly, I miss you so badly, I miss you so badly when I’m away from you when I’m away from you, when I’m away from you

Red Menace 04:29
There is broken glass all over the floor there is running water under the crack of the door I am crying again that I’ve broken my heart I’m alone again in the dark, in the dark But you say I deserve much better than this you say I am so much more than I see you say I just need, I just need to believe you say, that you love me I am broken glass all over the floor I am running water under the crack of the door I am breaking everything in my path I am bleeding again for you, for you I have craved this silence my whole life a quiet room, a place to dwell a place that’s far from this madness I have craved the silence my whole life a quiet room, a place to dwell a place to heal from this sickness

Love Drug 02:12
I took you like a drug think I made myself sick need to go trip, oh oh oh oh You just came through a wormhole you had a dark halo hanging over your skin I just slipped off a rainbow think I broke my tailbone lost my faith I took you like a drug think I made myself sick need to go trip, woh oh oh oh oh I’m like a child in your arms gonna put up a fight even when I’m not right you darkened my doorframe casting shadows in the evening I can’t make out your face I’m like a child in your arms I cut my teeth on your nipple suckle your blood I took you like a drug think I made myself sick need to go trip, oh oh oh I’m like a child in your arms gonna put up a fight especially when I’m not right I took to you like a gun cold metal on my tongue pull the trigger and I’m done
8.
Keep Sinning 04:24
I miss the lines of your face I miss your voice when it breaks I miss the funny sounds you make when you’re not awake I miss the crease of your mouth I miss the stains of your teeth I miss the sweat of your palms in my hands But I’m not gonna go down to the river and try to wash this all away, no I’m not gonna go down to the corner store and try to drink away this pain I might find me a girl or two, to sink my teeth into while I try to get over you I’m gonna keep on sinning, cuz it feels alright I’m gonna keep on sinning, cuz it suits me just fine I might find a boy or two to sink my teeth into while I try to get over you Here’s hoping we can make a whole new set of mistakes some day I’ll find the words to write down our story here’s hoping we can make a whole new set of bad mistakes oh honey it’s not too late But I’m not gonna go down to the river and try to wash this all away, no I’m not gonna go down to the corner store and try to drink away this pain I might find me a girl or two, to sink my teeth into while I try to get over you I’m gonna keep on sinning, cuz it feels alright I’m gonna keep on sinning, cuz it suits me just fine I might find me a girl or two to sink my teeth into while I try to get over you, can’t get over you

Geryon 04:14
Flames lick the floorboards of my heart as your wings turn in and in and in she lingers in the space where you won’t give she lingers a bright horror in a quiet light the horses screaming there will be no rest tonight the night springs forward like an avalanche of red she lingers like the cigarette smoke that clings to my coat she lingers like the cigarette smoke that clings to my coat she lingers one last photograph before you have to go one last ride before the end of this rodeo fly me over that volcano

So now who’s to blame is it me or you or is it both of us equally when all is said and done I still want you and you still don’t know what to do with me I locked you up inside a garden of blue you got lost inside the labyrinth of hedges sleeping under the moon I lost track of you out among the statues beyond my view I lost sight of you I would if I could, I would release you So now who’s to blame is it me or you or is it both of us equally when all is said and done I still want you and you still don’t know what to do with me I fell for you so goddamn easily I locked you up inside a garden of blue you got lost inside the labyrinth of hedges sleeping under the moon I lost track of you out among the statues beyond my view I lost sight of you I would if I could, I would release you
