Track Name: Drain
I landed on my feet
your taking this a bit too easy
the plants will eat the meat
no face
no guilt
no feelings

The houses look the same
some asshole actually believes he’s an island
the fountain’s giving head
they promised you the world after college

we got off
to a good start
and we all came
but empathy will drain your heart
and we complain
now we do care
so we live long
what about the mess?
I guess thats someone else’s problem

He landed on his feet
after he paid all the sharks off
traded desire for clean skin and envy
i guess we all deserve whats coming

you will go down the drain, someday we’re all forgotten
comfort will eat your brain, drive through and call your mother
some things will never change, others change way to often
they promised you the world after college
Track Name: Wasteland
wasteland
for sale
wasteland
for sale
wasted
female
man made
entrails

so many things were living here
before opportunity knocked
remote control for 99 cents
bacon
burger
cigarettes
i didn't know you were so cruel
i didn't know that I was too
eating shoes made by some children
bored high on glue

wasteland
for sale
wasteland
for sale
wasted
female
man made
entrails
Track Name: Destroyer
I want you now but your miles away
and there is nothing I can do but wait
the space between us gets warmer every day
its burning down like a skyscraper

I can’t control myself in this heat
push me over and I’ll float on my back
hands in your hair, both lost in release
please don’t stop
I want you now but your miles away

Be my destroyer
I will destroy you
Be my destroyer
I will destroy you

dreaming about your red light
with just your lips you pull down my eyes
and break me over and over again
I don't mind
I found god on the inside, inside, inside, inside

Be my destroyer
I will destroy you
Be my destroyer
I will destroy you

Somewhere
underneath this moon
you are sleeping
in a bed
somewhere
underneath this sun
I am sleeping
on a train

Be my destroyer
I will destroy you
Be my destroyer
I will destroy you

I want you now but your miles away
Track Name: Nerdz
You’ll be a knife girl
You’ll be a knife girl
with paper armor
your be a knife
be a knife
You’ll be a knife girl
fucking Joan of Arc girl
they’ll try to burn you

you’ll be all right girl
you’ll be a knife girl
with paper armor
you’ll be a knife
be a knife
you’ll be a knife girl
slayer of small words
no room for envious squirrels
with names like prairie

hey hey
don't give your blood away
hey hey
watch the suckers spin in place
hey hey
inquisition saving face
hey hey
Jesus lives in outer space

you’ll be a knife girl
you’ll be a knife
be a knife
with paper armor
you’ll be a knife
be a knife
you’ll be a knife girl
fucking Joan of Arc girl
they’ll try to burn you
with stupid fire

hey hey
people living in the streets
hey hey
vegetarians are made of meat
hey hey
you don’t have to participate
hey hey

and every things in plastic bags
and you will have to bury me someday
and you can consume all of your bliss
I’ll go home and cut my payroll wrists
I hope you will remember this
my powerful lady knife
Track Name: Generation X Midlife Crisis
We were on the run
from everything and everyone
dodging all the candy killers
in the cold sun
turn the volume up
we didn’t give a fuck
we didn’t give a fuck
we didn’t give a fuck
we were having fun
we were never gonna be old
you used to drive a truck
you used to drive a truck
you used to drive a truck
at least I thought it was
we drove it all the way out of town
now it doesn't mean anything

We were digging for a sign
trying for the big win
then a voice in my head did it
with a few words
I think she was drunk
she didn’t give a fuck
she didn’t give a fuck
she didn’t give a fuck
she told me whats up
I fell right through the floor
I wasn’t strong enough
I wasn’t strong enough
I wasn’t strong enough
I never was a punk
I just wanted to tell you how I feel
now it doesn't mean anything
i know it never meant anything

We were on the run
from all of the chosen ones
with cool hair and fashion babies
and nice skin
they wanna eat you up
I didn’t make this up
I didn’t make this up
I didn’t make this up
we eat the best of us
and they buy and sell all the scraps
but who give a fuck
who gives a fuck
who gives a fuck
put the bottom up
chase down the heroes that led us home
cause now they don’t mean anything
i think they never meant anything
nothing ever meant anything
Track Name: Nachtasyl
Marry me she said and gave me a ring
I told her I wasn’t a stereo
I think she was a communist
sitting on the school stairs
drinking cheap liquor with juice
fighting the Nazis with her youth

I’m sorry I have to leave
I didn’t see the officers
and their scaring me
its hard to believe
you were out fighting fascists
with wolf black jeans
and little teeth
a pretty crazy thing

I paid my respects to the lord of punks
a catch in my chest from an instant crush
the rogue wrote for love and shit
but he never had the tongue for it
we sang old songs in the night asylum
under revolutionaries names on the wall

I’m sorry I have to leave
I didn’t see the officers
and their scaring me
its hard to believe
you were out fighting fascists
with wolf black jeans
and little teeth
a pretty crazy thing

I’m sorry I have to leave
I didn’t see the officers
and their scaring me
its hard to believe
you were out fighting fascists
under carnival lights
ghosts here still bleed
buildings are their shadows
take me to the next drink
walking down the street
to a song fashioned in my head
you should have seen
the marble walls deep pink
while the sun fell asleep
Track Name: Heaven 11
Sitting on the edge of your eyes
was there something that you wanted to say
leaning in, I like the way you laugh
like a killer when its time to pay
this is how we spin in the ride
I always float away
if you wanted someone to hide with
you could have just said my name
because your nothing like them
no your nothing like them

getting off on heaven
for heaven’s sake
getting off on heaven
for heaven’s sake
getting off on heaven
heaven’s sake

Drinking on a ladder sun rise
I was nothing but you like me that way
tell me what you want my little hungry bird
I was listening to all that you said
(and you said)
“If there’s always something behind you
you know you’ll never feel free”
and if you got nowhere to run
would you like to run away with me
because your nothing like them
yeah your nothing like them

getting off on heaven
for heaven’s sake
getting off on heaven
for heaven’s sake
getting off on you
getting off on me
getting off on heaven

This is how the seasons surprise you
you always try to play their games
take my hand lets play outside
I wont be sad about your face
because your nothing like them
yeah your nothing like them

uh oh
uh oh

getting off on heaven
for heaven’s sake
getting off on heaven
for heaven’s sake
getting off on you
getting off on me
getting off on heaven
yeah
yeah
Track Name: Great Big Love
He’s leaving here in the morning
suddenly it came to him
she tried to laugh but just kept yawning
I wonder what we’ll make of this
everybody here acts so strange
I don’t know how we got this way
she didn’t hear him calling out her name
he didn’t see her when she waved

Yeah, I can’t complain
if I miss the train
I was having a good time
Oh, what do you know
did you let it go
or are you hanging on too tight
Hey, what did you say
to me yesterday
it sounded like you said hi
yeah,
its a great big love

He returned on a Saturday
while she was listening to the rain
they both smile and turn away
having much to much to say
everybody here just acts so strange
I don’t know how we got this way
they will sit and watch a TV show
and kiss while the credits roll them away

Yeah, I can’t complain
if I miss the train
I was having a good time
Oh, what do you know
did you let it go
or are you hanging on too tight
Hey, what did you say
to me yesterday
it sounded like you said hi
yeah,
its a great big love

its a great big love
its a great big love
its a great big love

Yeah, I can’t complain
if I miss the train
I was having a good time
Oh, what do you know
did you let it go
or are you hanging on too tight
Hey, what did you say
to me yesterday
it sounded like you said hi
Yeah, I can’t complain
if I miss the train
yeah,
its a great big love
Track Name: Phantom
Get what you wanted
isn’t that easy
which way are we going
are we on our own?
here’s some old new order
now we’re heaven hung over
really wish this was easy
but not everythings on time, on time
whats this
couldn’t find a thing
couldn’t walk away
didn’t feel the same
as it did when you killed me
so I say what I want to, want to
and you hear what you want to, want to
theres no prayer like desire
can we get any higher, higher
whats this
theres always something that I didn’t do right
get on the pleasure wagon dieing
I don’t want to be fulfilled
I survive on crisis
and I won’t cut down the tree
because I didn’t wanna climb it
I thought I knew the trails inside my head
and I was driving
oh shit
whats that sound
now I want another one, other one
but its never that easy, easy
so we need to be wanted, wanted
always needed to want it, want it
always need to be wanted, wanted
but you needed to want it, want it
I’ve been waiting
a long time
for you

I love you
and I want you

i love you
I haunt you
Track Name: Trains
Don’t leave the hope
the unplanned rose
is always better then the planned one
a pedal should always drop in the street

I’m not to good at good byes
I guess I’m getting better at them
late nights of bells and drums
why can’t I feel this way when I’m happy

the world blurs by in the window
watching a novel of colors pass me by
thinking of all the things that
left me behind
the things that left me behind
all the things that left me behind
the things that left me behind

I want to give you everything
so I don’t have to think about it
it’s getting hard to die alone
so I’ll just dream about it

the world blurs by in the window
watching a novel of colors pass me by
thinking of all the things that
left me behind
the things that left me behind
all the things that left me behind
the things that left me behind

will you leave me behind
will you leave me behind
please don’t leave me behind

the world blurs by in the window
watching a novel of colors pass me by
thinking of all the things that
left me behind
the things that left me behind
all the things that left me behind
the things that left me behind
all the things that left me behind
the things that left me behind
all the things that left me behind
the things that left me behind
Track Name: College Girl
I feel silly watching you
your so smart I’m just a dude
you study art
you study French
I study poems by alcoholics
I can read on my own
I can fail on my own
I don’t want an education
I just want you
