Track Name: Mother, May I
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.
Track Name: Sober
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
Track Name: Fade Into You
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
Track Name: The Shroud
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.)
Track Name: Never Meant To Know
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
Track Name: Hurt
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
Track Name: 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

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
Track Name: The Ghosts That Haunt Me
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.
