Track Name: Skyscraper
I saw red when you saw black
red paint on you but your cigarette
it was unlit

You came back under the sidewalk
any time my head speaks it really swells
because I'm it

I saw red when you saw black
red paint on you but your cigarette
it was unlit
Track Name: Moment You Crash
mister, will you go
leave this place
I want to go home
'cuz I've been knockin'
brace yourself, translating low

'cuz I won't make it
I won't make it alone (x4)

lose yourself, the body sends
the body's reaction to gold
LSD, the estuary
everything's the painting I own

'cuz I won't make it
I won't make it alone (x4)

release yourself
the body blends
everything is borrowed to shit
define a boy, define a girl
the weak should be mended

'cuz when I found out
when the end of the rope
kicks out when you swing,
the moment you crash
the release from the earth
gives you the breath you need
Track Name: There's a Song in Here Somewhere
when I get closer,
closer to the gun
when I get closer,
I sing this song

you are cool
like a landmine in the dark
and when I scream for shelter
you warm up
don't sweat it,
don't break down,
you'll always be the same
to an army of beloved grasses on the plain

when I get helpless,
help doesn't come
when I get helpless,
I sing this song

you, stay cool
you're a stranger in the dark
and when I scream for shelter
you call back
don't sweat it,
don't break down,
you'll be home once again
to an army of beloved faces that'll see you again

get on,
get right
the stars,
are bright (x4)

when I get closer,
closer to the gun
when I get closer,
I sing this song
when I get helpless,
help doesn't come
when I get helpless,
I sing this song

-oh!-
Track Name: The Goodnight Waltz
I won't try
but I won't hide, I say
hey dear
don't you fear, I say

I, I'm alive
Oh, it's not my time

she went home
to another second of her life
she went to church
she could not get forgiven

I, I'm alive
Oh, it's not my time
Track Name: Salvia Mike
high on waste, high on waste
my own way to cross my head
you know, that I know it's all I've become

high on waste, high on waste
constant stains on my bed
wear gold up to your arms

'cuz I won't I won't (x4)

high on waste, high on waste
I won't wait, cool your jets
when I fall, you fall into your head

high on waste, high on waste
never shame what is dead
save up life in your jar

cuz I won't I won't (x9)
Track Name: Shake
when I die, I'll wake again
consider all sources then leave
when I go blind, I'll lay in bed
your memories are dimmer than black

if faith could be used, who am I to choose
Decembering another state to last
depression excuse, for me to use
your better days were bigger than the sun

sweat out your systems, cover your hair
let it curl, encompass the mass
so tell her be cute, put her down too
you'll never be what you were days ago

fall on my knees
shake and be blown apart
Track Name: C A N ' T W A I T
I, I can't wait
for you to come home
so I can feel ok
yeah, I just sit
and patiently think
about all my debts
yeah, I sit
and think about your heart
feel like I'm in a cage
cuz I can't wait
to see you at home,
so I can be ok

yeah, I can't wait
to meet you at home
and tell me 'bout your day
and who you saw
and who you have felt
called you faggot called you gay
yet, I sit
and think about your heart
so I can feel ok
yeah, I just sit
I just sit
and think about what you wanna do
Track Name: Winter
to find it is not to work
I want you to know that it's your turn
it must be a stranger, since you've been gone
it must be a stranger, you're not strong

you're not strong (x2)

winter's gone away
I want you to know that I won't stray
I want you to notice, I've been gone
I want you to know this, now you're strong
now you're strong

now you're strong (x2)

winter's gone away (x2)

and I'm free, yes I'm free (x2)

winter's gone away (x2)

you can shut it, count it, think for too long
shut and count it, think what's wrong
I see the weapon in me
I see the weapon in me
I see the weapon in me
I see, now I
CUT IT AND SHUT IT DOWN
Track Name: Stay Asleep
I see nowhere to go, so I can't hide
everything's made to go, written in the sky
I see no paradigm that's written in the dust
I see nowhere to run, smitten in disgust
so I run

I see nowhere to lay, so I can't rest
everything's made to burn, it's written on your chest
I live in sweet divine solace on the block
I see nowhere to run, leave it up to God
so I run (x3)

so I run (x3)
