Track Name: Your Blind Eyes
I recognize you like the back of my hand
When I'm in some hell of mine, you'd understand

I could imagine, you could lie
I could be store-bought, but you wouldn't buy
Cease in a second, to throw me away
Your friendship's a burden, but I'm glad that you stayed

Don't open your eyes
I see you just fine
I know what's mine
Don't open your eyes

I love the irony that plagues your broken mind
I'd lift you to heaven, and you'd question why

I could imagine, you could lie
I could be store-bought, but you wouldn't buy
Cease in a second, to throw me away
Your friendship's a burden, but I'm glad that you stayed

Don't open your eyes
I see you just fine
I know what's mine
Don't open your eyes

It's easy to love me
I need love
It's easy to love me
I need love
love...love...love
Track Name: Salty Sunburn
I'm not early
You're not late
But the world is round
In miles of ground
There's sandy waters
And salty sunburn
But life is grand
Life is grand

I'm sitting shallow on a salty shoreline
With time to spare, but none to share
As long as I'm not close to you
I'm all by myself -don't need your help

Life is perfect in my own river
On my own land, 'cause life is grand
Life is perfect in my own river
On my own land, 'cause life is grand

The muddy banks are always open
to a lending hand, 'cause life is grand
And I hope I'm dead before tomorrow
I'm lifting time without my mind

And I'm not early
No you're not late
But the world is round
In miles of ground
As long as I'm not close to you
I'm all by myself -don't need your help

Life is perfect in my own river
On my own land, 'cause life is grand
Life is perfect in my own river
On my own land, 'cause life is grand
Track Name: Get Out - Come Back
Your conception
In the back of you
Have to prove it
I never understood
It's getting later
I'll show you to your room
It's getting darker
You cast a shadow

Your shade plagues mine
I'll save your day tonight
Empty minds all rise

Your reflection
It's just an empty room
Full of mirrors
You're on the second floor
Once you're moving
Won't matter anymore
If you slow down I'll blow you away

I'll blow you away I'll blow you away
I'll blow you away I'll blow you away

Never gonna burn
Never gonna fade
Never slow down
I'll blow you away
Track Name: Lonesome Days
Glimpse of the city
Get up. Get busy
Said we don't have all day
And you don't need to spit in it
It's an attitude problem you seem to have
What you spit in my ears is fucking bla bla bla

You st-st-stutter every time you speak
Because you're so, so stupid you can't even see
I fucking said that I was sorry and
Words don't mean a thing
You fucking left anyways as insulted as can be

You're full of lies impending
You cheat, tease, and steal
I'll never listen to your words until your words are real
So, fucking blah, blah, blah, blah
Words don't mean a thing
And fucking ha ha ha ha happy as can be

I never said it was impossible
I never said it was invincible
I wasn't sent here just to conquer you
My lonesome days can never bother you

I never wanted to know
I never wanted to know anyways
I never wanted to know
I never wanted to know anyways

Blah, blah, blah, blah. Words don't mean a thing
And fucking ha ha ha ha happy as can be

I never said it was impossible
I never said it was invincible
I wasn't sent here just to conquer you
My lonesome days can never bother you
Track Name: Scheduled Spontaneity
See your eyes pouring through the skies
You're the master of disguise
Thin line 'tween right and wrong
You know you're right when you can't move on
Favorite secrets soon to be sung
Sing me a song about saving someone's
Life living likely, lonely, and lame
Saying something to someone who's soon to be dead
Dying in misery. shoot her in the head
It's the end and it's where you belong
It's the end and it's where you belong

It's a dead end again, and I'm not to blame

A one, two, three, four, five, six, seven
Haters, forgivers, when dyers are livers
And a lie isn't truthful, but truth isn't useful
To useless beginners, get taught to be winners, but a
Loser's no cooler than soul sucking sinners
So, speak in spontaneity
Assume a fortunate destiny
I hope you know what's good and bad
What's good just makes me fucking laugh
It's a good, good, good old song
It's a dead end now and it's where you belong

It's a dead end again, and I'm not to blame

Loathe the lonely
Love the laughs
Loathe the lonely love
Track Name: Mornings
Morning songs steal my pride
Early sun in my eyes
Pinch myself, yes, I'm alive
How'd I get here last night?

Past presents me in my mind
Don't know how much time's gone by
Memories are unclear
Hours, days, months, even years?

Don't ever let this happen to me again
Don't ever tell anyone anything
Morning songs are mine...

And I feel just fine!
Track Name: Death
Don't like what I am
Don't like what I've become

Death speaks to me
I know why
Track Name: Blame
Don't blame me
Don't blame me
Don't hang my mind

I stand alone
I myself recognize we're all alone
We're all one of a kind
I stand alone

Oh, destiny, dark steps aside
Perhaps you live a lie
Dream these things
A dream will make it all alright
Alright right? right?

Oh, we're all one of a kind
I stand alone

Lose me on a topic, now
A dream in sleep lost hour by hour
Awake i find my feeble mind with lesser and lesser power
Track Name: Boulders Blocking the Devil's Way
I've gone somewhere, so you can't follow
Come bring me back my key
I know the devil
He's in my head
Won't let him get to me
You're full of lies, and I'm so full of sorrow
It's life that makes me sad
I laugh in wild eyes
You've shown blind eyes back at mine
'Cause life is all you have

Boulders next to me
Heaven's destiny
Won't let him get
to me, to me, to me, to me

Mirrors spring forth to me
It's sad but fascinating
You leave me blank and dazed
Set off for traveling
Leave Satan whispering
Leave boulders blocking his way

Boulders next to me
Heaven's destiny
Won't let him get
to me, to me, to me, to me
Track Name: Guilt
A driving impulsivity
Or scheduled spontaneity?
Either way, I'd love to say
A Jiminy cleaves my guilt to me
A cautious conscience cleaves itself
Brainstorms are heart-felt
Every day's a pastime
Every life's a living hell

Desperate for life
Why wonder why?

On a lighter note, there's a minor chord
To every melodious overtone
It's harmony that keeps us close
A guilty conscience, all alone

Desperate for life
Why wonder why?

Guilty and despised
Why wonder why?
Track Name: Blasphemy
Now see the skin all opened up
All severed, splattered, sewed back up
All human folk of life and lust
Can gain no shine, won't ever rust

And in perspective, sanity's forced
Religion sucks you in remorse
And god's the one who gave you strength
To call yourself a whore

Don't blow yourself you're too sucked in
To every cell you can't get in
Your sin is but a verse to praise
With a feather in your hat...

You think you'll fly away...

(Time's up)
