Track Name: I Don't Want You Anymore
In my bed where we were sleeping
In the park where we would walk
In those unsuspecting letters
There's a silhouette of chalk

And you can always tell which lover
Loves the other lover more
While you were sleeping in my arms
My eyes were locked on the bedroom door

And I don't want you anymore
No I don't want you anymore

Well what once was something sacred
Somehow turned to something used
Like a dirty hotel blanket
Like a politician's shoes
Track Name: In My Empty Room
In my empty room I have a perfect point of view
When I'm away from you
In my empty room I have such a clear point of view
When I'm away from you

When I'm way across the street at night
With you and them and everyone else I feel so blind

When I'm alone at night
Alone and no one else is in my sight I feel home
Track Name: Waiting To Die
I see you standing there
with the tire post in your hand
The blood pours from your pocket
and forms a blanket on the ground
And you're waiting there to die

In the dusty darkened morning
where the bankers wash their hands
Where the poets pick up women
and the politicians plan
We are waiting there to die

You walk me to the mirror
and the glass is turning red
The stains in my eye sockets
have now seeped into my head
And I'm waiting there to die

You pick up all your pieces
and you cover it with smoke
But your lips are bloody and blistery
and your necks wrapped in a rope
And you're waiting there to die
We are all waiting there to die
Track Name: SLUS
Out in the unlit station
Where ghosts whisper with the wind
Where the fire flickers and then disappears
We could find our way home again
Or I could die below the autumn branches
With the grave collectors mixing mud
Without a hint of shelter
In the cold coronary glove

And when my mind starts aching
When summer's soul begins to drip
We could build a house with matchboxes and cigarettes
And we'd lie inside there a bit
Or I could die in an old steel mill
Without a dream without a sound
My skeleton would decompose
In a place I'd never be found
Track Name: Where We Went Wrong
We will lie beneath the trees and stitch our scars
We will hide below the breeze and sketch the stars
We will stand between the seas and sing the songs of
Where we went wrong, where we went wrong

If you saw me now would you really
expect anything else from me
With all the words I say could you actually
expect anything else from me

We will walk into the sand and share our sorrows
We will climb each crippled branch with thoughts we borrowed
We will find the words we lost and sing the songs of
Where we went wrong, where we went wrong

If you saw me now would you really
expect anything else from me
With all the words I say could you actually
expect anything else from me

We will dive into the street and watch the cars go
We will see our silhouettes between the bars
We will count each word we said and sing the songs of
Where we went wrong, where we went wrong
Track Name: Ugliest Girl
You are the ugliest girl that I know
Inside
And that's where I want to be

Inside your room
Where regret and secrets loom
On specks of silence

You are the ugliest girl that I know
Inside
And that's where I want to be

Beneath each web
Of the lives that you once led
And walked away from
Track Name: I'm In Love
I'm in love
With you
I don't show it
I don't know it
And I'm pretty sure it ain't true
I'm in love with you

All the wind falls all around when you are near
The trees they turn, they turn towards you when we are near

I'm in love
With you
I don't know it
I don't show it
And I'm pretty sure it ain't true
I'm in love with you

The trees they tell me things that I don't want to hear
So I look away, I look away and look to you my dear

I'm in love
With you
I don't know it
I don't show it
And I'm pretty sure it ain't true
I'm in love with you

Love
It's a really nice word, isn't it?
I don't show it
I don't know it
And I'm pretty sure it ain't true
I'm in love with you
Track Name: Blues
My baby left me lying on the floor
I struggled back and held her hand for more
I saw her in that room
Blood covering every pore
Track Name: 7/?
All this time away
Brings back burning notes
So tired and alone
Sifting through a windy mind
Movement in the light
Silence in the night
Track Name: Certain Sands
We are all of the same whole
We are children of the ocean

Guessing grasping dim-lit soul
You are me and you are draining

Don't hold your skin
Don't grip your ground
Your sacred thoughts are bound to break down

Take some time to skip this stone
Don't retreat to concrete comforts

Certain sands are laced with gold
They are ours and they are plenty

Don't hold your skin
Don't grip your ground
Your sacred thoughts are bound to break down

When the weather gets so cold
know it now and know it's changing
