Track Name: PICKPOCKETS
why go and lock the door
while the key's under your welcome mat
why shine a light on the keep out sign
when your so tired of being alone

when your alone
when your alone
when your alone

staircase to nowhere
scratch the surface see what you are made of
shedding tears with nothing invested
writing words untrue
cant see us, but we see you

we will never have this chance again
we will never start where we began
we will never follow you hand in hand just like we planned
we will never have this chance again

confidence in man to man
don't trust a man with half a hand
tip of the cap to a foreign map
my boyish charm and 4 alarm fire

we will never have this chance again
we will never start where we began
we will never follow you hand in hand just like we planned
we will never have this chance again
Track Name: SWAMP
the battles caught up with us
scars on our weakened arms
scales on our crooked backs
we set our offspring free, free to swim in the summer
to earn a badge on their coldblooded bellies

just bury them in the sand with our see through hands
just bury them in the sand with our see through hands

we patrol the banks keep a close eye on temptation
those props look delicious and deadly
we set our offspring free, free to swim in the summer
to earn a badge on their coldblooded bellies

just bury them in the sand with our see through hands
just bury them in the sand with our see through hands


bury them in the sand with our see through hands
just bury them in the sand with our see through hands

your paralyzed by the sound
paralyzed by the sound
paralyzed by the sound
paralyzed by the sound
Track Name: HEADLINES
hide and go seek
with a virgin and a leach
and a big spender just out of reach
test my faith with their twisted voice's
and two doors very different choices
they spy through their webbed fingers
from a hole in the wall

be aware not afraid
a final nail in your coffin
test my faith with your headlines
be aware not afraid

let it breath a little bit
need some room to grow
let it need a little bit
when did become so old

be aware not afraid
a final nail in your coffin
be aware not afraid
test my faith with your headlines
Track Name: SEVEN SONS
your point of view has lost its edge
so sharpen it up before you speak again
they don't make things like this anymore
it smells of the dark without a single light on

sound of broken sticks
starting a deadly fire

seven sons hung out to dry
skip to the end broken skin on the mend
id rather be me than you or you or not you
id rather be clean or clean or clean or not clean

sound of broken sticks
starting deadly fire

stop fornicating with the help
it don't look good on your resume
you could really use a drink of water
you've been putting in your time
no light has shone brighter on this machine
rinse your mouth with bleach make it scream
man your on top of the world could you please sell me some
how can i get these stains off my sweater

sound of broken sticks
starting deadly fire
they melt in the choir
starting deadly fire
Track Name: PAINT YOUR EYES
Same day keep your cool
Play alive on April fools
Playing dead the ship of fools
Till we meet again unknown friend

Come undone heavenly son
Break apart into your forest

Paint your eyes paint them red
Chew on your every word the sound of your footsteps
Paint your eyes paint them red
Chew on your every word the sound of your footsteps

You always tell the best stories
A run on sentence with lasting impressions
Opposites attract fend off your demons
Slip under the covers to skin a lion

Come undone heavenly son
Break apart into your forest

Paint your eyes paint them red
Chew on your every word the sound of your footsteps
Paint your eyes paint them red
Chew on your every word the sound of your footsteps

Come undone heavenly son
Break apart into your forest

Paint your eyes paint them red
Chew on your every word the sound of your footsteps
Paint your eyes paint them red
Chew on your every word the sound of your footsteps
Track Name: BARRIERS
watch the faces in the trees smile at me
expressions in the leaves bring me to my knees
watch the faces in the leaves show signs of relief
suttle movement embark but keep it brief

handshakes and a wink of extended eye
black fancy dress alone sprouted cold
mile after mile cut in the fold
tough pill to swallow, this empty mold
stories told, landscape sold, bold movements all implode

calmness brings me to my knees
count down by threes
calmness brings me to my knees
count down by threes

rolling hills
barriers contain the kill
search aimlessly to replace your thrill
mile after mile cut in the fold
tough pill to swallow, this empty mold
stories told, landscape sold, bold movements all implode

calmness brings me to my knees
count down by threes
calmness brings me to my knees
count down by threes

can this calmness set you at ease
cause for alarm eliminate the things to can't see
can this calmness set you at ease
cause for alarm while you counts down by threes

calmness brings me to my knees
count down by threes
calmness brings me to my knees
count down by threes
Track Name: SORRY
coffee table stories
always stained with red wine
rings of repetitions up and down
with the makings of a new sound
harmony is gnawing at the bit
bite off more than we can chew
burning feet dance on the sun
come undone walk on the moon

but I'll talk to you a little later
when we can both clear our heads

you trade your Sunday dress
in pursuit of happiness
call out another name
missing pieces who's to blame
missing structure to our shame
blinded eye's as soon as they came
oh what a tangled web we've weaved
and the patches on your sleeves

don't fool anyone
they don't fool anyone
they don't fool anyone
they don't fool anyone, anyone, anymore

the word sorry's just a joke, hope you choke on it
pull your strings make you dance again
crawling down with your tail between your legs
glad to see your back again
but I'll talk to you a little later
when we can both clear our heads

but i know we can both clear our heads
in pursuit of happiness
and I'll come undone
its nice to know you
Track Name: CATS GAME
Line up from left to right
stand up straight and look this way
afraid of heights I'm on the ledge
afraid of fights afraid of fighting

sit at the table mechanic and a ghost
which one will flex its deflated muscles
looking for someone to sooth my wounds

close your eyes and close the door
the film reel keeps on slipping
slip into a coma slip into a coma slip into a coma

sit at the table with a mechanic and a ghost
which one will flex its deflated muscles
been leaking out of my god damn head
sirens in the distance
cars are moving faster, cars are moving faster ,
cars are moving faster
all the beautiful people, beautiful people, beautiful people,
beautiful people
oh look at them staring , look at them staring, look at them staring, look at them staring

beautiful people, beautiful people, the beautiful people, all the beautiful people
oh look at them staring, look at them staring , look at them staring , all of them staring

the beautiful people, beautiful people, the beautiful people , the beautiful people
oh look at them staring, look at them staring , look at them staring , look at them staring

sit at the table mechanic and a ghost
which one will flex its deflated muscles
looking for someone to sooth my wounds
Track Name: WATER / WINE
follow the leader give me water give me wine
abolished teacher give me water give me wine
i quench my thirst a thousand times
fulfill my need for greed
the vapor of the mixture grabs a hold
so raise your hands in victory victory

a matador with a aching head
a velvet vest is filled with lead
upside down with an aching head
pose for pictures in your neighbors bed

gluing shards of broken glass
doesn't make it whole again
tame the beast, and parade the town

follow the leader give me water give me wine
abolished teacher give me water give me wine
Track Name: STONE THROW(N)?
i set a fire without knowing
if anyone's inside
a stone throw distance
what a cowards place to hide
you fight because you're brave
wear your heart on your sleeve
but you're so nieve to believe
that your cuts won't bleed

sweat and tears
will drown your fears
sweat and tears
will drown your fears

you think of what he's done
you stoned him, you condemned him
but now he basks in the burning sun
think that you have fixed him

sweat and tears
drown your fears
the sweat and tears
drown your fears
Track Name: BUILT TO PLEASE
watch, oh watch outside my window
watch the creeps take over the streets
watch, oh watch outside my window
watch the freaks perform a daring feat

there's no release your set at ease
there's no release to keep the peace
your built to please

watch, oh watch outside my window
talk to the strangers who don't exist
watch, oh watch outside my window
peel the curtains back, sneak attack

there's no release to keep the peace
your set at ease there's no relief
your built to please

i distance myself
i dance with myself
tell me what i need to hear
i distance myself
i dance with myself
tell me what i need to hear

there's no release to keep the peace
your set at ease there's no relief
your built to please
