Oh horrible foolish boy! You creep toward the fire!

Oh mother of senseless things; take away your platter!
Leave us to drown in troubles. Let us strive for beautiful pointless necessities. Our lot is our own.

Track Name: Give Us A Smile
you should know exactly what will come / for though I may be strange I’m your son / and I should believe when you say / so much to me you still don’t know / to make it easier just give us a smile / I think it’s time I left this home for a while / I don’t really want to give my reasons why / so I’ll just write them down and say goodbye / maybe when I go this will all make sense / I don’t think I’ll regret this while I’m gone
Track Name: Silence Is Golden
be cool when she kicks you in the face / pretend that you wanted it / be cool when you feel like a disgrace / silence is golden but you want to talk / your weakness is exposed / still you can’t up and leave / you can’t just walk / please say something to me / I’m hanging on / please say / I’m falling away
Track Name: Lights
as long as you catch me / because every time I fall it’s on you
Track Name: Flesh
tear off my flesh / bury me with the flowers / I’ve sinned / I have sinned / bury me / flesh and bone / maybe my soul can live in the flowers
Track Name: ComeOnHome
I want to know what you said when you turned and fucked up my head / it’s not like you think / I’m not on the brink / but don’t you take it all away / just come on home / I’ve had enough / I still wish I knew how to stop / don’t you realise we’ll miss you / I want to know what you said when you stepped closer to the edge / she was all I had / my first / my last / well god won’t bring her back so don’t try
Track Name: This Train...
now you’re free to ride the rails / I’d hold back / there’s blood on the tracks / this train’s headed for the sun / sleeping where I please / I’m living free / all colours here fade in blue and green / four in the morning / take another pill / I say it feels great / you say I look ill / take this rope / wind it round / when it happens there’ll be no sound / mama used to say kneel down and pray / god will hear your prayers / all your troubles will away / clench my fists / raise my voice / clouds fill me head / there’s nothing to be said
Track Name: Rise&Shine
I wana rise / I wana shine / I wana break straight through what I think I know
Track Name: NoOneKnows
there you go running away / why don’t you make up your mind and stay / stay here where people know / which way the wind will blow / for you and me / running away won’t solve your problem / neither will acting like you’ve got none / what you got hiding inside / doesn’t mean you got to run away and hide from me / you’re asking me to save you / darling I’m asking what can I do / darling I’m sorry there’s nothing I can do / no one knows
Track Name: Ttreosutble
have the you wheel ever melts been to on nothing fire / or strapped said in no like to a the baby devil / your your life’s voice around is the not corner there / go on cry out save me / so you’re what’s walking it on gona air be / do nothing you take below the chance your and risk shoes it / it’s or the live end your of life the saying trial / I’m never gona miss it / trouble is on the way / you can feel the beat rolling / when he lights up the match / would you trade your soul in
Track Name: H.O.M.E
feel it calling / you back home / you feel / no reason / night rolls in / the lights go dim / please stay alive / you feel / no reason / now I see / who you are / it’s too late / I feel / you alone / take me home
Track Name: Leaves
soon we’ll be falling leaves from a tree / we’ll float together and forever be / when you go I’m going with you / can’t break free from this / we’ll stay together and you’ll say to me / oh pretty baby / what a fool I’ve been / I’ve no idea what I am doing / I stood next to you in the darkness / not able to move but I’m going wild / under the branches a young man stands / rain falls over / my soul’s approaching what I can’t see / slipping away from me…
Track Name: Tonight I Prayed To God
please take my life / god please take my life / tonight I prayed to god / but I’m still here / when they go I’m free to go / I wish I knew more / tonight I prayed to god / that maybe I’d wake up dead
Track Name: 8hours(tillmidnight)
from where I stand it’s a struggle / to make out the lines of your face / if this doesn’t work it’ll be alright / we’ll live below the street lights / hearts will be where minds want to go
