Track Name: Real Sympathy
I can tell you what you wanna hear
And I can fake this for another year, but I would rather die
And I’ve been sitting on this fence so long
And spent so very many nights alone
I am not surprised

But hey

You get to numbing up your insides
Ran to the river but the river ran dry
Heard your calls and heard your cries
Real sympathy’s so hard to find

Tiny shards of human legs and human arms
And eyes that never see the stars
They’re fading in and out of focus
Bathed in rum just like the day that we begun
But I will never be the one
And you’re too comfortable to notice

But hey

You get to numbing up your insides
Ran to the river but the river ran dry
Heard your calls and heard your cries
Real sympathy’s so hard to find
Hey
You get to plugging in your insight
Throw out the logic cause it never felt right
On your own for the only time
And real sympathy’s so hard to find
Track Name: Slam
Go now
Slam your head into the clouds
Slow drown
Only I could drag you out
Float now
Without us bricks weighing you down
Grown out of all desires left lying around

I know that I can fake it
I know that I can make this alive

Dumb shit
Hippie conduit for sale
My wits
Left to chase your paper trail
Every little monster’s gotta feed
This one’s been devouring me
I have never moved at slower speeds
As when a heavy heart’s in need
Hear me

I know that I can fake it
I know that I can make this alive

Never been so frightened by the sound
Of a spark dying out now
Safe to say that i won’t get around
It’s time to put it in the ground
Believe you me

I know that i can fake it
I know that I can make this alive
Track Name: Desole Pt. I
Bones that bend in me
Form a late apology 
I wont deny that you and I
Were something any longer
But I can't live to be
A stain on your biography
Lets wash this clean, this widow's dream
I'm sure I could try harder

Echoes and vagrants
Saw you off at the station
Cause there were demons of my own creation
Now coming out
Track Name: Desole Pt. II
You were robbed then
But I'm alone, so now we’re even
You’re out there in the Paris air
But you can’t stop bleeding

How could I have hurt you
Ocean eyes that turned the sky blue
The blue it fades as day becomes the night
You'll spin above my head like passing satellites

Shirt up round your head
Next the dirt became your bed
Old friends of mine, so serpentine
They get what they want
I heard the siren scream
Hid the whiskey by the stream
Of all the dumb things I've done, felt my legs run
It was miles before I stopped them

How could I have hurt you
Ocean eyes that turned the sky blue
The blue it fades as day becomes the night
You'll spin above my head like passing satellites

Perfect porcelain try your best to let me in
I'll hold you high until I die
and never let you shatter

It doesn't matter
It doesn't matter
Track Name: Don't Stand A Chance
Blues and blacks have inched their way back
Past the sounds I know
And a light too warm to hold
I’ve heard everyone here was made of stone
And I’m a liar cause you’ll think I’ve grown

All the wants you’d ever show
Trapped in a firm and frantic hold
Well I just did what I was told
And classicism turned cold
But here’s the new modern machine
To keep em kitschy keep em clean
And I despise the way it breathes
Inside of you and sleeps in me

Working to improve
So trim the sides and get the glue
No more hiding from the truth
That all I want is to be new
So I will ride into the sun
Ok now Annie grab your gun
Cause as fast as I can run from you
It’s not as fast as you can shoot

It’s not as fast as you can shoot me down

You’re a treasure in the desert
You’re the water I’ve found
Now that everybody’s looking
There’s just one in this town
That’s so kindly and so coveted
We all wanna dance
But I’m to comfortable with compromise
I don’t stand a chance
Track Name: et al.
Well we all stay stuck
Like it’s gonna make a difference
There’s blood in the kitchen
From a knife she caught
I just shrugged it off
Gotta chew a way out
I’ve been living on the inside
Cocoon
There’s always room
Room for two

Swinging from the balcony
Waving her goodbye
Just targets at the gallery
They never move in time

Everybody shake hands
We can do it at a distance
And never have to listen
We’ll just turn that off
Put words where they belong
And as our bodies take shape
I can see that I’m an artifact
From the life that quickly passed
Through her fingertips
Give your guts another twist
Tell me am I missed

Swinging from the balcony
Waving her goodbye
Just targets at the gallery
They never move in time

In this room
There’s only you and me
And our hundred thousand frailties
Well I failed to read the punchline
Can’t laugh this off
At all
Track Name: Again
I think we’re getting closer to the end
Cause you only want to talk about the thoughts I try to fend off
And there’s only one way out
And we haven’t found it yet
But my head’s forever underground
Cause that’s my safest bet

Again
Again I’m left in waiting yeah
Again
Again I’m left in waiting yeah

Well we can’t stay close to anything that’s good
Cause boredom once was comfort
Once was shock and it’s all destruction
Red eye, red eye
The day’s won’t let me hold you
You stay quiet, refined
As I scream into a deafened divide

Again I’m left in waiting yeah
Again I’m left in waiting yeah

Every misstep frozen in my mind
If I could thaw them
Have no worries dear I will be gone and soon forgotten
When they say forever all it means is till you’re ready
Trust me

Again
Again

Again I’m left in waiting yeah
Again I’m left in waiting, waiting
Track Name: Creepy Jr.
Can't remember why I tried
When you're younger 
You've got no thoughts for grand design
We're still alive inside my mind
And that might be the only place
I'll see you

I had a girl who was always right
And I wouldn't argue
Cause thats a poor fistfight to lose
This year the fish they just won't bite
And all my friends have gotten bored 
Of bad news
For those who chose to stay
Devoured by this old driveway tonight

Lord I’ll let myself in

Each night brought a brand new thrill
When the clock hit two she'd flip the switch
From stun to kill
My breath's now short my body's still
And she'll ask how trash like me gets through
To heaven

Lord I’ll let myself in

I'm talking to you kid
Let's lay it all out on the table
If the bridge holds through today
That doesn't always mean its stable
While your head still works ok
Find someone ready, willing, able
To never sin 
Don't give trouble any chance to begin
Track Name: Jane
There’s a stranger in Jane’s room
They always come and go like that
It’s how she makes her entertainment
Cause for a moment two is one and one is everything
Till she opens up her eyes
And has to face it

Just before dad left town
He liked to toss the girls around
She’s not yet found a good replacement
And Danny King had said one time
That he could tell just from her eyes
How many times she’d been snowblind
It takes one to trace it

Lay down Jane lay down
You can’t talk, you can’t open your mouth
Lay down Jane lay down
Or just get out, just get out

Another body in your room
I’m locked out on the porch again
Can’t see his face but then I hear you
And in the wake the drying clay
Of all your faults and fresh mistakes
Well I can’t blame you
For wanting to be wanted like you do

Lay down Jane lay down
You can’t talk, you can’t open your mouth
Lay down Jane lay down
Or just get out, just get out
Track Name: You Don't Know
My back is turned
To stop the worst from happening
But words are words
And when they’re yours I’m listening

You say what you wanna say
It’s serious
You’re just afraid
To try me on for size
You don’t know

A swift escape
A bitter taste left in my mouth
I went outside
To clear my mind of what came out

You say what you wanna say
It’s serious
You’re just afraid
To try me on tonight
You don’t know

I had a dream it wasn’t you

You say what what you wanna say
It’s serious
You’re just afraid to try me on tonight
You don’t know

I had a dream it wasn’t you
Track Name: Danny King
Looks up and there’s a hole in the sky
He swear’s he wants to please us
He just hasn’t learned how
Clean living was something to try
So we picked him up
A few blocks from the court house
If there’s a cage it remains with his wife
Nineteen years man are you serious?
First foray into the sexual life
Come on David, she’s on her period

Looks up at another hole in the sky
He’ll always wanna please us
But he’s never gonna learn how
Mama’s been trapped in a diamond mine and
Don’t look cause your sister’s on stage well
I don’t ever wanna be the one
To let you slip away and
Mouth full of marbles
When you say you’re gonna change
I’m singing oh
Home

This is one of the few times
Where I’m not confident you’ll make it
And this is one of the few times
Where I’m not sure you’re coming home
