Razor Blades 03:20
RAZOR BLADES Lost my fingers when I found my fist/s Flashing hazards, stuck on safety pins Eyes wide and wasting wish bones broken in I want it all but everything won’t fit Cut through the noises we know Killing our darlings We’ve got a choice to make Safe at the end of our rope Missing our calling Rush to the razor blades Empty boxes squeezing us to death Haunted crosses breathing down our necks A thousand cuts have the last laugh I’m a mountain, you can’t pass me up
2.
Liars 03:54
LIARS Breaking out of here in hives Nursing time bombs to life Finding locks in burning leaves Hiding keys in gasoline I took your hands so you couldn’t keep me You broke my legs so I couldn’t wander Liars have read our lips and called our bluff Two heads to one's a waste, crack it open Pour out our brains, our thoughts better spoken Damage ourselves to not fall in love Plastic actors faking thrills Stealing lines from silent films Buried hatchets, hard to find Breath on fire, guiding light We went to strange places Searching for old faces Rose colored glasses of dust Dig us from old graves Dancing on dead weight Love is deranged and fear’s a crutch
3.
Smile & Wave 03:41
SMILE & WAVE We broke the wedding bells to make the rings We burned the list of our favorite things We laid the flowers out, petals and thorns We smashed the bottles and kept all the corks You’re beautiful, I must say I’m head over heels Clicking my feet three times There’s no place…. If I hadn’t gunned straight for the sun We’d want answers It’s better to know than just to Show up, smile, and wave Displayed our renegade for cheers and looks Liars stab shiny pins - and tiny hooks in what might have been Stealing memories taking form From fairytales never born While they’re building love on fault lines Castles made from sand and mud We’ll fill our glasses with the tide’s wine Rising higher with the flood

Better Off 03:21
BETTER OFF I didn’t know what we had started I couldn’t see the pieces then Pulled us closer, found us toxic How misleading it had been I know that I’m broken hearted I know that I’m aching on the mend I know that I’m easily abused And that we’re better off friends Caged in safety, waste away from it Hope has starved us both to death We’ve taken flame and burned contagious
5.
Acid Rain 03:00
ACID RAIN I am a swollen tongue silence finds Dressing wolves in white noise I am a bleach that’s made to find your eyes Halting dreams in damage We could have been gods hurling fire Swaying the cradle to a broken lullaby We’re only happy in a haze Floating carbon; call me acid rain I am electric color Leading blind vultures into panic We could have been gods hurling fire Swaying the cradle to a broken lullaby We’re only happy in a haze Floating carbon; We could have been hope’s show and tell The brightest pennies at the bottom of the well Hear only echoes when we sing Floating carbon; call me acid rain Don’t forget that we planted seeds In the wounds of a wish that grew only weeds
6.
PULLING TEETH Finding real’s like pulling teeth Out with a bang from hide and seek Climbed into a cannon, fell asleep Waking up in flight is for the birds and bees and kites But for now, I can see everything I see a pack of lies and liars Selling us water while starting fires Hope is hopeless Finding real’s like pulling teeth I spy wolves and they’re in sheep’s clothing A crash through the trees had wrapped me in Sap, thick as thieves, on paper skin Finding real’s like pulling teeth I spy wolves and they’re in sheep’s clothing Come out Beelzebub, our wicked winged vice Lash silver tongues from blackened lungs Breathe fire from the flies Hollow crowds in love with loud, jealous all the time Throw us out of sight, out of mind Finding real’s like pulling teeth I spy wolves and they’re in sheep’s clothing
7.
Typecast 02:50
TYPECAST Exhibit: yours truly, Echoes and vice Bad habits tear through me Muscles and mind A time for everything A place for everyone So lovely stuck beneath our thumbs Tell me a story I’ve heard before One where I know the ending Show me the moves I’ve loved you for But nothing else, nothing else Bring me back to times passed A wish for the well you’re digging A brave and leading typecast But nothing else, nothing else A scripted romance is Half full of heart While pinning both arms back Reach for the stars Letting the blind lead the pack Kicking a dead horse that kicks back Setting me up for another attack I’ve had it I’ll leave us broke beyond repair Terrorize our safest thoughts I’m not what you think you love You’re looking for a ghost and you’ve gotta give it up
8.
Memories 02:52
MEMORIES Take me by the hand Haunted fingers, empty threats There’s enough clouds and shapes Caught in great escapes We’ve gotten soaked with fireworks and flames Beautiful robot/s, switches and tin Heavenly bodies, and the Devil within them Swing marionettes from life and limb A needle buried in stacks of pins Tuned for trembling Wired for kissing machines Calm down, we’re fine for now Gathered here in a burning house
9.
Taking Sides 03:08
TAKING SIDES Cut me some slack I’ve been gone a long time Blinding my ears from my eyes Dressed in distortion And flattering lights Up on the hill taking sides Carved out a place Filled it with hate Forgive my recklessness I’ve been in vice Up on the hill taking sides I’ve been made Teacher’s Pet And I’ve been taking the wrong bets I could stand to fall from grace Forgive my recklessness I’ve been in vice Up on the hill taking sides Choked on my welcome By swallowing pride Up on the hill taking sides
10.
The Weeds 04:02
THE WEEDS Calling out to pull me in, undress your dirtiness A wreath around my neck, I’m collared down Celebrate on hands and knees Owning up to whoring out our laughter Didn’t heed the warning and laid to sleep beneath the weeds No one’s left to pull me inside their toxic memories Killing time with kindness reserves your bed beneath the weeds Caught the lie, changed the tune Lost the time, played the fool How mistaken Broken wide, sing the rule Spit the poison, keep us cruel No one will pull us from the weeds
