Track Name: Hands
I left you just enough
I left you just enough to live
You left me just enough
Just enough to irritate my skin
And I keep coming back for more
I want you so bad but for now

My hands are still here

I wished you nothing but
I wished you nothing but the best
You still keep wishing me
All the things that irritate my skin
And I keep coming back for more
I want you so bad but for now

My hands are still here
Track Name: Dead Finger
All the vows you took so lightly
All my strings you pulled so tightly
I put a ring on your dead finger
I put a ring on your dead finger
And I know what I know
Iʼll go Iʼll go
I know what I know
Iʼll go Iʼll go

Oh my heart that I never owned
All my fears you turned to stone
I pull my heart off the bathroom floor
I pull my heart off the bathroom floor
And I know what I know
Iʼll go Iʼll go
I know what I know
Iʼll go Iʼll go

Wonʼt you stay a little longer
Wonʼt you stay a little longer

I know what I know
Iʼll go Iʼll go
I know what I know
Iʼll go Iʼll go


Wonʼt you stay a little longer
Wonʼt you stay a little longer
Pull the ring off my dead finger
Pull the ring off my dead finger
I know what I know
Iʼll go Iʼll go
I know what I know
Iʼll go Iʼll go
Track Name: Southern States
Whatʼs the deal with the southern states
I donʼt know
She went ahead and changed the license plates
I know this for sure
Iʼm going to walk to California
Itʼs a long way they try to warn you
And off she goes

Iʼm riding away into a sunset of woe

How I ended up in Mexico
I donʼt know
If I could get out of this bed Iʼd go
I know this for sure
Iʼm going to walk to California
Itʼs a long way they try to warn you
And off she goes

Iʼm riding away into a sunset of woe
Track Name: High Hopes
All drugged up and no place to go
Feel most alive when weʼre a little bit cold
You can be the one to push me over
Prop me up loaded in the corner
Itʼs a stagger to the top
Of the stairs to get the rock
You can be the one to roll me over
You can be the one to roll me over

I found love but I didnʼt want it
She found love but she couldnʼt swallow
Everybodyʼs here but we couldnʼt be bothered
Naked on the floor with the preacherʼs daughter
Sheʼs high it makes her spit
Iʼm high I throw up a bit
You can be the one to roll me over
You can be the one to roll me over

We got uppers we got downers
Late nights with strange encounters
On the floor like a holy roller
Give me high hopes when you call me over
Call a doctor call a nurse
Call a hearse if it gets much worse
You can be the one to roll me over
You can be the one to roll me over

Prop me up loaded in the corner
You can be the one to roll me over
You can be the one to roll me over
Track Name: Into The Night
I donʼt love you
I never did
I made it up
Since you made me live
Pick up the pieces
Iʼm better without
Better than ever
Since you let me out
Come into my house
Youʼre under my roof
Do not delude me
Cause Iʼm living proof
That one can be free
And still live in sin

Iʼm into the night

If you lay hands
Iʼll kill you myself
Doesnʼt matter to me
If I live on the shelf
If I recognize you
I've nothing to loose
You lose it all
If I make you choose

Hey little sister
Live without fear
Everyone loves you
Everyoneʼs here
Fall asleep
And when you cannot

Go into the night
Without fear
Track Name: Great Escape
I never dream, Iʼve no escape
I take amphetamine, it keeps me awake
But it traps me in
So I drink for fear
Iʼll think too much
And Iʼm already late
For the great escape

To conquer all, itʼs too much for me
I wanted it all, Iʼm barely on my feet
I grasp the edge
But you know Iʼd rather
Just let go
And Iʼm already late
For the great escape

I like to be on time, I never worry
I hate to wait in line, Iʼm always in a hurry
But I stick it out
For fear Iʼll miss you
When you come around
And Iʼm already late
For the great escape
Track Name: Nobody Knows
Talk to me softly
So nobody knows
The faces are coming
Theyʼre getting so close
So wonʼt you take me back
Wonʼt you love me once again
Wonʼt you take me back
Wonʼt you love me

Well itʼs all for you my love
What Iʼm gonna do, what Iʼm gonna do
Well itʼs all for you

Donʼt take me lightly
You know what I know
When everythingʼs frightening
You know where to go
So wonʼt you take me back
Wonʼt you love me once again
Wonʼt you take me back
Wonʼt you love me

Well itʼs all for you my love
What Iʼm gonna do, what Iʼm gonna do
Well itʼs all for you

The voices they rattle
Outside of my head
And the faces get louder
As we sleep in their beds
So wonʼt you take me back
Wonʼt you love me once again
Wonʼt you take me back
Wonʼt you love me

Well itʼs all for you my love
What Iʼm gonna do, what Iʼm gonna do
Well itʼs all for you
Track Name: Punk One
What are you here for
Well haven't you been warned
The longer you stay the more I throw away

What are you here for
Catch yourself coming through the door
Those doors they were never locked before
Track Name: I Don't
Iʼm getting old before my time
Itʼs no fun but neither am I
If I die before I break
Hold on

I donʼt believe in any light
Hold on

Down on my face where I belong
Your love once served to keep me strong
Through the sink hole of my mind
Hold on

I donʼt believe in any light
Hold on

Please donʼt retrieve me, let me go
My breath is gone and my body's cold
I donʼt believe in any light
I donʼt believe in any light
Track Name: Stains And Burns
When you smoke it shows
When you start going down you need me the most
I canʼt prolong the stroke
And Iʼve hear it only takes one more

With the stains and the burns and the caffeine urns
With the stains and the burns and the caffeine urns

A foot in the door
I'm only having one more it's all I can afford
And with the will that we got
Weʼll just them rot
With the stains and the burns and the caffeine urns
With the stains and the burns and the caffeine urns

Keep me in mind I want to stay inside
Keep me in mind I want to stay inside

Itʼs only reckless if you canʼt handle shit
And I donʼt mind helping you find it
Its only reckless if you canʼt handle shit
And I donʼt mind helping you find it

Keep me in mind I want to stay inside
Keep me in mind I want to stay inside
