Track Name: Contd.
i can see the sun
brand new bright fallout
if the night returns
i’ll stay up by your side

finally the ground
friend of my first steps
we will leave these dirt roads
‘cause cities don’t fall down

i don’t need your cold antique excuse
Track Name: Understand
i used to think i was a whore
in an ocean screaming more, more, more
crying like my lip was split
wanting payment for some things i never did
spit the blood and i’d dry my eyes
so much for a nice goodbye

i am ready for the war
cannons kept in a nightstand drawer
i will try to fall asleep
with dreams of itchy fingers pulling at my sheets
and putting that gun right inside my hands
for all of us god has his plans

i can’t look at any faces i remember as a love once
i can’t stand that i know the truth, that it means that nothing’s ever good enough for you

you will always be the same
an empty beauty, cornucopia of shame
and when you think of what to say
don’t say a word, just bite your lip and walk away

and hold it in ‘til you feel you’ll burst
it won’t be painful, at least not at first
when you cannot take it anymore
pound your hardest outside my door
and let it out, i will understand
for all of us god has his plans
Track Name: Attention
something isn’t right
another sleepless night
she breathes her death into your head
conform to cancer’s what she said

everyone you know
kill for tickets to the show
she even knows it’s not that bad
give her the attention that she never ever ever had

no known cure for the infection
it all comes down to natural selection
she breathes her death into your head
conform to cancer’s what she said

she wants attention, she’ll fuck the world
use protection, trust your nerves
she wants attention, she’ll fuck the world
Track Name: Friendly Advice
what happens when you run out of people to forget
will you make up a story about the world that has more holes than pieces of string
tiny, tiny string

what happens when you run out of nights to regret
will you sit down and write a song about how nothing ever happens
and that you like to sing

what happens when you run out of water in your net
will you cry tears of hollow shame and tell the boys you never had a chance
and that you lost your ring

when you’re away, mark your leg
when you awake, swallow lead
Track Name: And Counting
jesus i’m ready to die
jesus i know it’s my time
i’ve seen enough with these eyes

jesus i’m ready to die

i wanted to make my father proud
he said to find something worth fighting for
they needed men so i signed up for their war

jesus i’m ready to die

they rape and kill the innocent
is this what my country represents
we’re waiting for the people to rejoice
when instead of build, our government destroys

jesus i’m ready to die

i’m hopeful that my death is quick
i’ll just be another statistic
a victim of my own false pride
jesus i’m ready to die
Track Name: Summer
sun and sea
come back to me
in warm nights of reflection

the sand between
the core and me
fills me with apprehension

the sweet air
a lover’s stare
forever lasts for some things

sunset’s pink
lovers blink
and all is all when ending
