Track Name: A Sight For The Human Eyes
Now it seems the season's changing is not the same as it always was/i too have turned away from the reputation I had won/i felt the greed and envy/we waged a war inside/i stand in line pretending i'm not about to lose my mind/i swim to keep from drowning/i must live near mountains or seas/i need those solid boundaries/i am lost in the in-between/a city so careless and golden is a sight for the human eyes/what you need is what you're holding/turn on that guiding light/military-paycheck-dress torn/multimillions painted white/bloody feet on linoleum floor/a comma on the end of time/standing in a Target waiting for the dream to finally die/there's no such relief to save me/i've got so much hope I could cry.
Track Name: Born To Die
I used to cry everyday when I though of answers locked away and the need to fight from last to first/but now I see with human eyes that answers are just well-read lies and my heart is lifted like a bird/my dreams are not written in a book/they are salt in the sea and worms under the dirt/i gave up looking for what's right and bide my time/cause you and I were born to die/if I should die before I wake I know I've got no soul to take and redemption is a wicked word/cause now I see with human eyes this world is real and the pain is mine and my heart is lifted like a bird/my dreams are not written in a book/they are salt in the sea and worms under the dirt/i gave up looking for what's right and bide my time/cause you and I were born to die.
Track Name: It's Not The Same Without You
I took a fall and I walked through the yard where we talked underneath a different midnight moon/i found the things that we said/buried and dead/quiet in a soft and grassy tomb/i remember your face/freckled and faint/your momma's cross hung round your neck/i was miles away/too wrapped up in fate to tell you what we really meant/it's not the same without you/it's no the same without you/sneaking out of your room/it's not the same without you/heart beating and blue/it's not the same without you/i keep seeing your name written in the cold waves/a text just hanging in the air/i'm calling out in my sleep cause my eyes can still see the white bows tied up in your hair/it's not the same without you/it's no the same without you/sneaking out of your room/it's not the same without you/heart beating and blue/it's not the same without you/so blue.
Track Name: Let Me In
I'm changin space/i'm coastin through/i can't find a state/that'll contain you/just pissin in/a truckstop sink/gettin sad about what I can't believe/just let me in/hey let me in/i tried to use my telephone/it plays me a fool/black as a stone/well all lights go out/at least that's the truth/i'm workin out these things for you/i'm turnin the wheel/i'm cheatin to win/i'm feelin down/just let me in/hey let me in/i learned to take by givin grief/i wanna stay in parentheses/just comin down in empty rooms/while all my doubts/i give to you/i'm turnin the wheel/i'm cheatin to win/i'm feelin down/just let me in/hey let me in.
Track Name: My Heart Is A Graveyard
You were the queen of wasted nights/a jewel set in our broken crown/protector of the silent lie/that we'd always be young somehow/a white horse in a town of rust/bright against the sunburnt sky/rising from the ashes of our darkest friday nights/but now my heart is a graveyard for the looks held in your eyes/where there once was a ocean is a cold valley time/we would never notice how the city cast it's shadow wide/looming like a great sundial counting out our restless time/like bonfires on an inlet shore and beer soaked deep into the sand/everyone I love the most will slip right through my hands/now my heart is a graveyard for the looks held in your eyes/where there once was an ocean is a cold valley of time/if the past would unlock with a key/if I used it on your door/would you still remember me?/could we have what he had before?
Track Name: Another World
I'm getting older and my heart aches with words I can't say/if I never hold you will I have lived a day?/dream another world where you can have all of my love/each night we must hurt/burning with what-ifs/crying for love/send me your secrets wrapped in the whitest of lies/i'll hold them always/kept warm so we'll never die/dream another world where you can have all of my love/each night we must hurt/burning with what-ifs/crying for love.
Track Name: I Am Gone
I remember how she talked/fake valley in her drawl/nervous with her keys/mourning for her mom/there's candy in the seat/shoes tucked inside the door/she wants pedals on her feet/she wants to be adored/the dog's always on a leash/and the door is always closed/she begged for her release/she painted half her toes/there's gravel on the breeze/a trip out to the mall/she came back for me and I was gone/it's not as lonely as it seems/suspended in a fall/there's no secret left to keep/when there's no one you can call/a haircut in the sink/the weeding out of thoughts/shedding off the dreams/and I am gone.
Track Name: Locked In The Mall
There's a parking lot creep/he says “cash paid for gold”/he says “nothing is free but your anger and colds”/where is the receipt that proves this is all a lie?/if I can't get to sleep cause i'm covered in slime/how am I supposed to dream about catching a ride to the corner store to up all my nickels for dimes?/say goodbye to lost boy/he's dimming in the dusk/he's a spirit and he's moving on/like a solipsist teen with the nearest of sights/you don't know you need guiding eyes for the blind/pick out a coffin with plenty of room to grow/locked in the mall by myself for the night/i tried every shoe on but nothing fit right/i kissed every mannequin but slept underneath the skylights alone/say goodbye to lost boy/he's dimming in the dusk/he's a spirit and he's moving on/you can go on thinking that this is all you want/but i'm a spirit and i'm moving on/ And on and on and on.
