Track Name: When You're Cold, Wrap Up Warm
You've got a broken head, goes with your broken heart
You do what you want to, when you want to
Was it something I said, got you shifting around
Like a parasite, like a termite
The room's empty now, it's just you and me
Our egos 3 foot tall
It's like we needed prompting, the air was thick as lead

When did you go?
My heart was so upset about it all
I had to suppress my feelings for at least an hour
Afterwards
So excited
I might just buy that new fantastic product you said about
I'll have to suppress my feelings for at least
Forever

Now my voice is shot, like I parked on the curb
Never leave a trace if you don't have to
Crumbling in shock, like a real smooth crash
The look on your face was more than priceless
Don't you ever get cold, you should wrap up warm
Never wear a coat if you don't have to
It's like being outside, always turns things around

I saw feelings
In the shape of a fluorescent little ball
Been that way since I was a little toddler baby
A parasite
Ten thousand gallons of blood
That should be pumping through a vein
It crushes me to hear about insatiable thirst
For knowledge
When did you go?
My heart was so upset about it all
I had to suppress my feelings
For at least an hour, afterwards
So excited
I might just buy that new
Fantastic product you said about
I'll have to suppress my feelings for at least
Forever

Forever
Track Name: Death, Sirens, Meaning
Something in the air was
Thick as lead
Thought I wanted something else
Cut my hair

Swept upstream, the boat went and cracked in two
The pieces swept down, the stream
And killed a thousand fish

I forgot the blonde one's name
Is it Julia?
Given the chance again
I'd stay here

Swept upstream, the boat went and cracked in two
The pieces swept down, the stream
And killed a thousand fish

Something in the air was
Thick as lead
Thought I wanted something else
Cut my hair

Swept upstream, the boat went and cracked in two
The pieces swept down, the stream
And killed a thousand fish
Track Name: You Were a Ghost and I Was Your Gravestone, We Got Always Got Along
I knew you were a ghost
Knew you had a foe
I was the only one who could see him
We've laughed and laughed for years
To the point we were in tears
The only one who's seen him

I'll leave it all to you
You're moving away aren't you
It's really bad news
We'll be together again
The mood is fucking sad

I never caught your name
To me this is a shame
I would have shared the blame
It feels like several hundred years
But time will disappear
And our hearts will both expire

I'll leave it all to you
You're moving away aren't you
It's really bad news
We'll be together again
The mood is fucking sad
Track Name: A Sun With No Regard, Parts One and Two
PART ONE
Sunlight
Blacklight,
Sometimes I read a novel
Dark times
Respite
This time I saw you laughing

Did you hear?
I'm leaving soon
At least that's
The plan anyway

Be my hunter, be my best friend
Be my hunter, be my best friend
Be my hunter, be mine
Be my hunter, be mine

Cold smoke
Black smoke
I know what happened to me
Dark times
Respite
This time I saw you laughing

Be my lover, be my best friend
Be my lover, be my best friend
Be my lover, be mine
Be my lover, be mine

PART TWO
With truth I wonder
Are emotions electric?
I enter in a dream and out I come,
False and irrespective
Would this be heartfelt if everything I believed in
Wasn't based on solid faith
From where the typewriter drums
You can see most of the city
Heaving a while mess
I'm not sure I own at all
To a man who dreams about his son
And loathes the fact his body won
I pick up the knife and draw it proudly
Like a whirlwind stampede
Really all he wanted was a job well done
Creation imperfect
But satisfied
He stands on a China cupboard
He stands irrespective and melts like ashes
Back from sunlight
Blacklight
Dark workshop winters
A sun with no regard
Track Name: Song For Darcy
I'll use my head in other ways
Think about it for a while
Hang my head and sigh
Running up and down the street
You made a mouse out of me
Made the snow turn to sleet

One day you'll need
Someone like me
One day you'll need
Someone like me

I watched you living
You melt my little heart
You fry my little brains
In this arm I carry
A little breath of air
A break from just despair

One day I could use
Someone like you
One day you'll need
Someone like me
One day I could use
Someone like you
One day you'll need
Someone like me
Track Name: A Beating Heart Finds Its End/You Never Mean a Thing
I know
You see the best in me
We're always fighting
But you never mean a thing
The weather's cold
But you never wear a coat
So we'll go inside
And put on warm clothes

All the time
I'll talk to you
'Til you're lonely
Just me and you
Mortal fallacy
That's always true
Aaaaaaaaaah
What should I do?

I wish
I needed more help
It's hard
When you're not around
A waistcoat
That I found
Was yours
Is mine now

All the time
I'll talk to you
'Til you're lonely
Just me and you
Mortal fallacy
That's always true
Aaaaaaaaaah
What should I do?
Track Name: I Should Have Been A Writer/Victory Rose and the Train Ride Home
I needed to get
My head out of
A deletable state

Said it to Victory Rose
Didn't really want her to know
Now she knows
Track Name: Interlude: A Cold Little Song For Over Those Seas
(Instrumental)

Track Name: He Wouldn't Know What To Do
He kneeled down at the basin
He washed his hands, he washed his face
All with a rag, a piece of cloth
He woke up in another city
His hair tied up, his eyeballs painted
And dripping red, he's not sure if he's dead

If you got him alone in an empty room
He'd rely on you, he'd rely on you
If you left him on his own
He wouldn't know what to do, wouldn't know what to do

He left on a plane for San Francisco
Someone caught his eye, he never flew again
She was in his head, taking legroom space
He looked around for someone else
Didn't know anyone well, should've realised by now
He lost the race, the circuit's run

If you got him alone in an empty room
He'd rely on you
If you left him on his own
He wouldn't know what to do, wouldn't know what to do
Track Name: What Someone Else Felt, Some Other Time
Sedatives and bubblegum
The barrel of a loaded gun
The eyes of a girl you thought you loved
A mirror for you to see what you've done

And see the dark patches
Around your eyelids
The bones of your cheeks
The cuts deep in your thighs
That bleed when you walk
And leave you
Writhing on the sidewalk
Bleeding to death

And loving every last vile second
Of it
And loving every last vile second
Of it

She was somebody's daughter
She pulled the trigger, she will always be my friend
She is somebody's memory
But she was my lover

She didn't care enough
To try for me
But I'll forgive her
We will always have happiness
And a pond full of fish
And ducks to float on top
We will always have happiness
If only in my dreams

And loving every last vile second
Of it
And loving every last vile second
Of it
Track Name: Cold Hand
I hope that Death comes thick and fast
To those who need it
Those in need of it
Those in need of it
Cold hand touches fingers, touches bone
Crawling pity
I'm a teenager
And it feels like forever
My arms are legless little homes
For ants to live in
Where the sun gets in
Where the damp can't live
When I get up I only go one way
Then I'm stuck that way
Never had that much to say

I wish, I wish I had it all
I wish I had it all

The only thing, that I like
About you is you
Track Name: Trust Song/Coda
I'll never trust
A face
'Til I see yours
Again

All the time
I'll talk to you
'Til we're lonely
Just me and you
Aaaaaaaah
That's always true
Aaaaaaaah
What should I do?
Track Name: Atlas
Hear what it's all about, calling a name out
Tide and resistant sand, sit back and hope for plans
With all this, with all this happening
I guess it's common sense
Or maybe happenstance

You were told that, you told me you'd get me back
Toes can feel sand, cold and moist and lonesome track
He was feeling not at his best
She ruined her favourite dress
They called it off and left
Called all his fucking friends
The called it off and left
And went to sort their heads
They called it off

He got upset about it
And he called his parents
They said
"There's nothing
That we can do about it.
There's no way
Back except the one you came."

Everything you said, got divorced from you mouth
(A bible's not an Atlas, so it turns out)
Everyone you met, got divorced anyhow
(All those old friends, you don't know them now)
And it so turned out, so it turns out
(A bible's not an Atlas, so it turns out)
Everybody's fighting, everybody shouts
(I'm not broken, I'm just devout)
A bible's not an Atlas, so it turns out
(Everything you said, got divorced from your mouth)
All those old friends, you don't know them now
(Everyone you met, got divorced anyhow)
A bible's not an Atlas, so it turns out
(And it so turned out, so it turns out)
