Track Name: Hold Me Don't Need Me
Everyday pulls more thread from my thumb
I feel so numb, so numb when I cum
Ghost is so cold and the stories been told
Nothing I regret about the things I have sold

Hold me don’t need me don’t leave anymore
Hold me don’t need me don’t leave anymore
Footprints on the window and my heads on the floor
Hold me don’t need me don’t leave
Anymore

Like another flake that waits for a break
Neighbour stomps around and keeps me awake
I don’t know where to move or what I should prove
Throw it to the jury and let them decide

Standing in the box and im telling my lies
Holding onto days that flowered and died
Standing in the box and im telling my lies
Holding onto days that flowered and
died

holding my breath when I reach for the light
now the old crow gets ready to bite
the shining inside gives me up once again
dancing on my nerves so im throwing it back

Turning all black and its fading away
Turning all black and its fading away
Turning all black and its fading away
Turning all black and its fading
Away

HOLDING ONTO THINGS THAT IM WAITING TO SAY
HOLDING ONTO THINGS THAT IM WAITING TO SAY
HOLDING ONTO THINGS THAT IM WAITING TO SAY
HOLD ME DON’ NEED ME DON’T LEAVE

Stuck inside your rear-view mirror
I shimmer in the reflection
I beg you to smash it open
I promise you no more bad luck

Night shines on
Right on thru
Night shines on
Next to you
Track Name: Flinch
i wont flinch
when she burns
holes so deep
in my skin

she cuts those tiny chunks out
the patterns that were forming
the pieces land in nowhere
i'll walk it to pick them up

i find shade in new places
hungover wednesday morning
kick the words right out, my mouth
i'll leave them outside your house
Track Name: Cow Song
my cow, don't watch
my cow

i'm the best at this game
get your hands out my brain

feasting on my self-doubt
mastery took so long

i won't drown in the lake
i'll make your garden shake
i won't drown in the lake
i'll make your garden shake

bedraggled and weary

shallow bags will be filled
i want out let me go

disgusting flattery
what do you want from me?

i won't drown in the lake
i'll make your garden shake
i won't drown in the lake
i'll make your garden shake
Track Name: Rabbit Punch
I lived each life like it was my last one

i was just like them
no matter what
i thought

waited to long
outside in
the snow

when the motions right
i will
go straight
back there

----

i can bide my time
while the
century
floats by

i know who it
was and i recognise
whats next

i can feel the poison
corrupt his
insides

ruination of me
from my
jealousy

land of dead souls, don't you wake them

sharks inside this submarine

i'm still living good bye sunbeam

everyday brings/breaks another dream
Track Name: Stage Peasants
you never made us
you were never in our room
we don't fuckin' need you to write another tune
everything you stand for is that which i despise
poke them all you want you can never have my eyes

queen of the turds and your never serving me
one of your clones i could never ever be
sound has got no dress code i wear what i want
it's just another bar and it's just another scene

whens it fuckin' home time get me out of here
everyday's the same and no one knows my name
hiding in my headphones and staring at the girls
tedium has made me what i am today
they all want a fight and i never made the grade
never been promoted and never got a raise
i'll never earn enough to make you feel secure
i'll never earn enough to make you feel secure
Track Name: Black Vomit
fingering around. closer to the sound. chewing thru the gap. that separates my ways. feeling kind of sick. scowling at the signs. road has disappeared. i'm laughing at myself.

vortex of words with out number. see the sun reflect off her nose.
i can poke all, the black vomit, from the side of my gums tonight.
my heads full of rocks and garbage, i surrender show yourself now.
it's too late i can't get thru this, bone, my teeth are far too brittle.

all the empty the space, now i'll find my place. all the things i done. follow where i run. trade it all to him. hand it in for cash. doesn't mean a thing. i'm laughing at myself. take it to the tomb. how stupid it all was. TO HELL WITH ALL THIS TOWN. i am your black hole. throw the wires in, sterilise your soul. make a special point. leave yourself alone

i'm inviting this, paranormal, paranoia, into my home, 'cuz im lonely : ( they all know me. here they come now out my mind

mind

my favourite shadow. already knows, the ending it's, just watching [-_-] from the start to see, how it unfolds, ALL IT'S GLORY out my mind

MIND

paper the cracks, paper the cracks
i know whats wrong, can't change a thing
i feel so scared, i feel so scared
pulling me back, pulling me back....
Track Name: Man With a Movie Camera
Based on words from Dziga Vertov's "Man With a Movie Camera".
Track Name: Don't Be So Dramatic
yesterdays behind the moon
your still grounded in your shoes
underneath the cherry trees
shuffling the autumn leaves
your still standing in my dreams
pain that you wont make me feel
nothing I expect of you
push myself right out of here

here it goes again
really done it this time
such a simple truth
that I failed to notice
I can only learn
from my crazy notions
here it goes again
no controlling panic

I have not done what
I set out to do
there’s a flood right now
In my internal landscape
watch my better self
drowning in dark waters
Johnny boy don’t be
don’t be so dramatic

prickly thoughts of you
cant keep my hands off them

this was never mine
I know im in trouble

slipping thru the cells
nightmares hovering low

my backs growing thorns
I wont hold myself now

i wont add more fumes
to exhaust your patience
stupid things I say
help push me away
here it goes again
here it goes again
here it goes again

SOMETHING BRIGHT AND SCARY

oh please
im
letting go
of things i
can't control

Ill rewind

to when i

still had hope

new and vague

drag myself
up to a
higher footing and
wait
