Track Name: Fire Dance
i perfected the art of falling apart when you are around
you're there when i crumble and when i mumble thinking aloud
can we just go home?

love me like you've never loved before and when you hold me
press my skin until it's sore

well i've noticed you've started ripping apart the things that you love
not that it's wrong, just tagging along, but heavens above

can we just go home?

love me like you've never loved before and when you hold me
press my skin until it's sore

is it in good taste or is it a waste of your precious time?
i'll be on my way instead of delay the audible ire

can we just go home?

love me like you've never loved before and when you hold me
press my skin until it's sore

press my skin until it's sore
Track Name: Little Off Key
3 6 better learn the tricks
0 better let them go
9 12 talk to yourself
0 better let them go

because boys don't cry and girls wanna have fun there's a big, fat finger on the trigger of a gun
put the barrel to your head and like your daddy said you're a big let down and you're better off dead

hello mister is there anything you see?
i'm just a little off key
isn't that a little too deep
maybe you're better off dead

with a red dot between your eyes
dead with a red dot covering your lies
with a red dot between your eyes
dead with a red dot covering your lies

the ghost of most
below's your host
and owes the slew
a toast to you

you know you can't just cover up and scream your lies
words don't matter when there's fire in your eyes

because boys don't cry and girls wanna have fun there's a big, fat finger on the trigger of a gun
put the barrel to your head and like your daddy said you're a big let down and you're better off dead

hello mister is there anything you see?
i'm just a little off key
isn't that a little too deep

3 6 better learn the tricks
0 better let them go
9 12 talk to yourself
0 better let them go

you can't stay alone

hello mister is there anything you see?
you're just a little off key
isn't that a little too deep

all the accidents that happen
follow the dot
coinsidense makes sense
only with you
you don't have to speak
i feel
emotional landscapes
they puzzle me

the riddle gets solved and you push me up to this:

...state of emergency...
...how beatuiful to be!...
...state of emergency...
...is where i want to be...

all that no-one sees
you see
what's inside of me
every nerve that hurts you heal
deep inside of me
you don't have to speak - i feel
emotional landscapes
they puzzle me

how beautiful

...state of emergency...

Track Name: Inertia
It was totally rational
sodomy bashing
and solemnly cashing
in favors stashing them
gagged and bound and never found again

isn't this working out?
tired of running away

haven't you hurt
all the people you've heard
when the bold and absurd
meet the weak and disturbed
lying gagged and bound and never found again

i stole in my past
said nothing would last
admittedly rash
and stubbornly fast

now i'm gagged and bound and never found again

isn't this worth your while?
so tired of running away
i'm so tired of running away

step on hands to make them cry
treat their yells as lullabies
hold them closer to absolve us all

isn't this worth your while?
i'm tired of running away
i'm so tired of running away

(now get that confused look off your face, dear. it doesn't become you. Well i'll just say it again)

are you just afraid to leave?
is that why you're beckoning me?

isn't this worth your while?
i'm tired of running away
Track Name: Onomatopeople
there's a stain on my shirt
won't you tell me what it's worth
i've been folding
and holding on

be brave young knave

there's a stain on my shirt
won't you tell me what it's worth
i'm a man of my word and a
hand for the absurd
i've been folding
and holding on


automatic onomatopoeias go bang

now my mouth's full of dirt
i can't even say a word
i am folding
and holding on
when they squeal in delight
and i try to make it right
i am holding
and folding on

automatic onomatopoeias go bang

there's a chance to betray
and it's pushing me away
i've been folding
and holding on

keep in mind what it's like to be high as a kite
i've been folding
and holding on

automatic onomatopoeias go bang

all these onomatopoeia people want to go bang
all these onomatopoeia people want to bang

automatic onomatopoeias go bang

there's a stain on my shirt
won't you tell me what it's worth
'cause i'm folding
and holding on
Track Name: Chronostasis
beware of us and tell your friends

reach back forgetting the politics
and the whole fad get rid of all of this
well i hope that you've got the heart to ignore

your heading back to the storm

oceanwives and thunderstorms
no one knows you anymore

beware of us and tell your friends

i hope that you got to clean your mind
and i hope that you're better on the other side
i hope that you got the will to endure

you're heading back to the storm

oceanwives and thunderstorms
no one knows you anymore

and i told you: you have ages to go
and time will show you: you have ages to go

is that a nametag for being anonymous
do you need help with being autonomous
well i hope that you've got enough time to enjoy

end your lives in thunderstorms
no one knows you anymore

beware of us and tell your friends

you're heading back to the storm

this is what the noose is for
no one knows me anymore

and i told you: you have ages to go
and time will show you: you have ages to go
Track Name: Pieces
well i can't defy her
multiply her hand
her hand
and it screams one two three
come be with with me again
again

well i can't deny her
candid cries for aid
and after endless tries we
can't deny her fate

but i'm no fool
she likes girls the way i do
on top of the world
and over you
she'll rip me to pieces
and sing along


well i can't define her
fingers lines of late
i drown in honey and wine drank
rum inside the bait
but i'm no fool

but i'm no fool
she likes girls the way i to
on top of the world
and over you she'll rip me to pieces
and sing along

well i can't design her
figure's lines of late
i drown in honey and wine drank
rum inside the bait

but i'm no fool
she likes girls the way i do
on top of the world
and over you
she'll rip me to pieces
and sing along

well i can't defy her
multiply her hand
her hand
and it screams one two three
come be with with me again
again

well i can't defy her
multiply her hand
Track Name: Belletriste
there's an end to this in sight
we're lamenting to your right
but it must be time to go
nothing left to be bestowed

is this where you want to start?
free of virtue and of art
and if all is left alone
we're still shaken to the bone

is this anything to you, babe?

hope you're witnessing the fall
of this monolithic wall
if they becon you to stay
then you'd best be on your way

is this where the end resides?
where the monument divides
bare your teeth behind your hand
and oblige to their demand

am i anything to you, babe?

there's an end to this in sight

is this anything to you, babe?
Track Name: Used
there's a war to be fought with you out there
ruminating in thought and in despair
we can't believe how cut your hair
the beautiful liar in the lion's chair

cause you're giving it up and you get to be untamed
and you're sticking it up and remain to be unchained
and now you think you found the birds again
any man can make them sing again

scream and you cry watch the days go by

there's a cannibal caught in a slew of fear
isn't happy enough with you my dear
and I can't believe how cut your hair
the beautiful liar in the lion's chair

cause you're giving it up and you get to be untamed
and you're sticking it up and remain to be unchained
and now you think you found the birds again
any man can make them sing again

scream and you cry watch the days go by

cause your living it up and you get to feel confused
and your sticking it up and you feel completely used
and now you think you found the birds again
any man can make you lose
Track Name: Surrender
run upstairs to faint again
hold your tongue defy them too

just don't be late for the end of the world now

well you came again to break the law
tender lady know it all
break a leg and you guffaw
jumping straight into the maw

don't be late to the end of this

i guess they took your name as well
you took it with a smile and fell aloft in grace
is this what you're really called?
does it matter to you, to you at all?

just don't be late for the end of the world now

well you came again to break the law
tender lady know it all
break a leg and you guffaw
jumping straight into the maw

don't be late to the end of this

too close to home once more

is this really what you wanted?
to be afraid and be hunted?
and is this really what you care for?
to be scared and be careful?

be awake to faint this time
