Track Name: To Begin
If this is the end
Why try pretending I don't care
While rainclouds are sinking my ship

Forgive me my friends
For I've got some business to tend to with Davey Jones
So I'll make it quick

Don't mark my grave
You know that the waves will just wash it away
And that's how it should stay

I'll be ok
That's what I'll write to my mother
To keep her from crying for me
Track Name: Riverbed
Twenty-five years travel by so fast
Seventeen since I had seen you last
It was good to see you
Then you turn around and disappear again
A father's promise thrown to the wind
We put up flyers for you

Did you leave at night or was it homicide?
I'd give anything to know
Will the passing time ever make it right?
Will I ever let it show?

Am I dreaming?

A skull or a femur
its giving me fever
My heart is miles from my chest
They found in the river
what i can't deliver
A shell of a man is all that's left

Where's my fix?
Make me fixed

There's something about how I found out the truth
that's working its way down my spine
Just when I thought I had nothing to lose
you were gone like the stars in my eyes
Track Name: Kneel
Beg me to
pray for you
Say what you mean
Work of art
Tear apart
Wash our hearts clean

Here at the altar, the edge of my rope
Hang me from all of the songs that you wrote
Sir can you fix me? My hands are blood-red
Remember you said, remember you said

Kneel before me now

I swear I'll follow you there til I'm empty and bare
Who's notch in a belt am I?

Hang me from the songs that you wrote
At the altar, edge of my rope
Pray for me
Track Name: Too Easy
So give me a reason to see things from your side
To try this one more time
You beg me to follow, I'm finding I'm hollowed out inside
Exactly how I like

Then you said
its all a game
that we play
to the end of time
Stealing lives
The whole nine
Gets us paid
Drains your face of any life

Its too easy to fall in lust with you again
and forget myself in the heat of our bodies burning in your bed
Its too easy to call this home when you're around
but the fire's dying, hearts are lying, lying to us now

So give me a reason to see things from your side
So give me a reason to try this...

Then you said (Get some sleep)
its all a game (then you'll see)
that we play (it isn't me who's lost their fucking mind)
to the end of time
Stealing lives (Hold your breath)
The whole nine (Bored to death)
Gets us paid (We'll give and take until there's nothing left)
Drains your face of any life

I'm finding that I'm hollowed out inside
Exactly how I like
Track Name: Hasta la Muerta
Obsessed with imagery
You'd pave the road with bodies
But who will build your wall
on blood and bones at beckon call?

All my love is not enough, not enough
Hasta la, la muerta, la muerta

Tiny fingers clutch, hold in your ego
Breathe in, blow the dust off of this freak show
I can feel the ghosts begging us not to
Love yourself the most
Violent host
Overdose

Obsessed with imagery
You'd pave the road, you'll pave the road
But who will build your wall
on blood and bones?

Lighting up the homes of people everywhere
Dancing on the bones and no one seems to care

Obsessed with imagery
You'd pave the road with bodies

Who will build your wall
Standing ten feet tall
No one cares at all
Blood and bones
in your home
Stand alone
Stand alone
Track Name: Disappear
Drove by your house tonight
It felt like poison in my head
and dripping down my spine
my tunnel vision's turning read

Soon I'll be gone

I let it get to me
I wouldn't have it any differently
I see you in my sleep despite
My every attempt to make it right

I will disappear
Track Name: Tremble
Tremble in my knees
Blood behind my teeth
Freeze. Anxiety.
I can't breathe. I can't breathe

Feel it like a fire
burning every bridge behind me

Burn these bridges down
Burn them to the ground
Burn these bridges down

I can barely keep myself together
Lost forever inside
Its gets the best of me when I am sleeping
The fear takes me for a ride

Burn. Burn.

Why am I so afraid to get out of bed today?

You'll find me alone in my room
Fighting to decipher the truth
You'll find me alone
Its all I know

Someone pull me out
Burn these bridges down
Track Name: Solipsism
So what else can I say to change your mind?
What else can we break tonight?

Holding on to the way I remember you'd dance
when you were feeling it
Now its gone but for photographs and empty bare hands
Are you feeling it?

We're not getting any younger
I'm not sleeping, I never sleep

So hold me close
I wanna feel your body surround me and overdose
Don't wake me up
You always look much better when my eyes are closed

I'm not sleeping anymore
be my drug be my drug
I'm not sleeping anymore
fuck me up fuck me up

(I wanna feel your body)

Keep me close. Overdose

You make each and every day move longer and longer
Still you taste the same as each and every time I try

So hold me close
I wanna feel your body surround me and overdose
Don't wake me up
You always look much better when my eyes are closed
