Take another look at this life gone stale. Open up your eyes to the desecration. Who did you think you were fooling this time? We can see that your light has faded. You'll never know so don't pretend. I can't believe you're back here again. Stop your faking and start the waiting for that other half to pass away. Mother, may I question you? How'd you get so sick and jaded? Now you've got no life to call your own. Scraping up your knees crawling all around me. Hoping for my re-assurance. Can't you see that I want nothing more Than to see you on your feet again. You'll never know so don't pretend. I can't believe you're back here again. Stop the faking and start the waiting for that other half to pass away. Mother, may I question you? How you got so sick and jaded? Now you've got no son to call your own. You silly, little thing. You silly, little thing. You're such a silly, stupid little thing. You can find her falling down Trying to beat this cruel addiction. But she's running into only this, my endless dereliction. Mother, may I question you? How you got so sick and jaded? Now you've got no life to call your own. Mother, may I let you go? Don't wait up, 'cause I'm not coming home Because now I've got a life to call my own.

Sober 05:43
There's a shadow just behind me Shrouding every step I take Making every promise empty Pointing every finger at me Waiting like the stalking butler Who upon the finger rests Murder now the path called "must we" Just because the Son has come Jesus, won't you fucking whistle Something but what's past and done? Jesus, won't you fucking whistle Something but what's past and done? Why can't we not be sober? I just want to start this over Why can't we sleep forever? I just want to start this over I am just a worthless liar I am just an imbecile I will only complicate you Trust in me and fall as well I will find a center in you I will chew it up and leave I will work to elevate you Just enough to bring you down Mother Mary, won't you whisper Something but what's past and done? Mother Mary, won't you whisper Something but what's past and done? Why can't we not be sober? I just want to start this over Why can't we drink forever? I just want to start this over again I am just a worthless liar I am just an imbecile I will only complicate you Trust in me and fall as well I will find a center in you I will chew it up and leave Trust me Trust me Trust me Trust me Trust me Why can't we not be sober? I just want to start this over Why can't we sleep forever? I just want to start this over I want what I want I want what I want I want what I want I want what I want

I want to hold the hand inside you I want to take a breath that's true I look to you and I see nothing I look to you to see the truth You live your life, you go in shadows You'll come apart and you'll go blind Some kind of night into your darkness Colors your eyes with what's not there Fade into you Strange you never knew Fade into you I think it's strange you never knew A stranger's light comes on slowly A stranger's heart without a home You put your hands into your head And then its smiles cover your heart Fade into you Strange you never knew Fade into you I think it's strange you never knew

The Shroud 05:07
Shroud your body in white lies and turtlenecks. Tell yourself you don't belong. Dry your eyes out with sea salt and paper towels. Don't let another tear fall. Mold that mask into something just a little bit easier to contend with. Why don't you tear it all away? Break it down brick by brick and mortar up a brand new life again. You'll love the sunny days again and dance a waltz with drops of rain. You'll find a way to entertain and live happily in the mundane. (And thanks for all the inspiration.) Build your house up of playing cards and sugar glass. Line up all your soldiers, girl. Forget the poetry. It's not like it was ever yours. You're lying to yourself again. Why don't you tear it all away? Break it down brick by brick and mortar up a brand new life again. You'll love the sunny days again and dance the waltz with drops of rain. You'll find a way to entertain and live happily in the mundane. You'll clear a path away from pain. You'll drink from cups of fine champagne and learn the power of refrain and learn the feeling of disdain and be blind to all that you can feign while lying with your frightened swaine because you chose to walk this lane of fallen stars and the pseudo-sane. (But thanks for all the inspiration.)

Woke up today with a lay of the land Feather in cap & the sun in the sand It was easy It was easy to understand Everything suddenly falls out of sight Every attachment is made of the light That you offered You have offered to give me life CHORUS See the sky & all the land together again See the way the earth can stay below Who do we think we are? Everything plays a part There are some things we are never meant to know Having enjoyed all the meat from the bone Is perfectly equal to being alone It was even But you breathe & I turn to stone Everything suddenly looks like a sign Easy to see from the outermost clime I believe in what I leave in the way behind CHORUS & all the parts combine to one & all of us around the sun Everything will fall away To order from the disarray See the sun the shadows cast From all the times I floated past See the ocean spinning out With all the hope & all the doubt See the sky & all the land together again See the way the earth can stay below Who do we think we are? Everything plays a part There are some things we don't understand Reasons on the other hand There are some things we are never meant to know

Hurt 04:28
I hurt myself today To see if I still feel I focus on the pain The only thing that's real The needle tears a hole The old familiar sting Try to kill it all away But I remember everything What have I become My sweetest friend Everyone I know Goes away in the end And you could have it all My empire of dirt I will let you down I will make you hurt I wear this crown of shit Upon my liars chair Full of broken thoughts I cannot repair Beneath the stains of time The feelings disappear You are someone else I am still right here What have I become My sweetest friend Everyone I know Goes away in the end And you could have it all My empire of dirt I will let you down I will make you hurt If I could start again A million miles away I will keep myself I would find a way

Jolene 04:34
Jolene, Jolene, Jolene, Jolene I'm begging of you please don't take my man Jolene, Jolene, Jolene, Jolene Please don't take him just because you can Your beauty is beyond compare With flaming locks of auburn hair With ivory skin and eyes of emerald green Your smile is like a breath of spring Your voice is soft like summer rain And I cannot compete with you Jolene He talks about you in his sleep And there's nothing I can do to keep From crying when he calls your name Jolene And I can easily understand How you could easily take my man But you don't know what he means to me Jolene Jolene, Jolene, Jolene, Jolene I'm begging of you please don't take my man Jolene, Jolene, Jolene, Jolene Please don't take him just because you can You could have your choice of men But I could never love again He's the only one for me Jolene I had to have this talk with you My happiness depends on you And whatever you decide to do Jolene Jolene, Jolene, Jolene, Jolene I'm begging of you please don't take my man Jolene, Jolene, Jolene, Jolene Please don't take him even though you can

Drops of memories, wafting in the air. I can't see them as much as I could before. Every corner I step around finds dandelions underneath my feet. And I bend down to straighten them out and blow their seeds 'till Monday rolls around. The night train comes 'round, blowing its whistle at me. This parcel of memory gift wrapped and silent from the ghosts that haunt me. And the land is shaky from infinite holes and I begin to fall. Tumbling down to how you sound without your voice around. And the night train comes 'round blowing its whistle at me. This parcel of memory gift wrapped and silent from the ghosts that haunt me. So please tell me who left you there where you shouldn't be standing alone for awhile. Until I digress to what remains to be seen as an afterglow, with so much future untold. You're so sad.
