Track Name: Colours
It's not right,
What I'm trying to say,
Words aren't happening here.
All I've got,
Is inarticulate prose,
That don't reach the middle of it.

So Hey, na na na,
Hey, na na na,
Would you be with me now?
Hey, na na na.

You can run all day just to know where you are,
But that don't change the colour of your scars,
Don't pretty it up, you are what you are,
And your tears define you.
Track Name: Rock Strut
This dead skin hides no small amount of secrets,
Most of them unknown but will you suffer me?
You dirty little sucker, Holy motherfucker,
When did this become such an anomaly?
And who defined the fine lines of darkness and sunshine?
Where did they go wrong, was it monopoly?
Tragedy and 8-Balls bouncing 'round the table,
It all seems so clear!

Why can't you just let me feel it again?
Your face disgraced this place and I don't want to pretend.
Why can't you just let me feel it again?
My eyes decided this ride and I don't want it to end.

My patience tires of it daily,
Most of it gets blown from the lunar sea,
And being cannon fodder, rarely makes me shudder,
But inconvenience grows as my temper swells,
So grit your little teeth 'cause now it's time to bleed you,
We're gonna squeeze your life right out of me,
Filthy little harlot, whoring little starlet,
It all seems so clear!

Why can't you just let me feel it again?
Your face disgraced this place and I don't want to pretend.
Why can't you just let me feel it again?
My eyes decided this ride and I don't want it to end.
Track Name: Pilgrim
Cover me,
I'm going in alive,
You see,
And it seems I may just die,
Smiling,
With my face pressed to the sky.
And this warm feeling,
Could be just what I need now,
And then,
To defrost the cold somehow,
Within,
It could be where I am found.

Oh yeah,
So light my way back home,
See the darkness overthrown,
Though the way seems cold.

And follow me,
If I don't return,
Trust me,
'Cause it means we needn't burn,
Or need,
We could heal all that we learn,
It's not unforseen,
There could be a light,
Maybe,
There's nothing but life,
To see,
Perfect inside peace.

Oh yeah,
So light my way back home,
See the darkness overthrown,
Though the way seems cold.
Track Name: Burn It
I feel it,
It's coming,
It's already,
Begun and,
Certainty,
Will eat me,
Alive if,
I don't get free,
From the prison I was born into,
Torn in two,
Pulled kicking and screaming into this,
Mess of horrors that we're going through,
You know it's true.

The frequency of vacancy extends,
With each new day that you'd have us betray,
Our own and selves to you,
And all that we don't believe in,
'Til piece by piece we find release within,
And away from here.

I feel it,
Such rage that,
We're born into,
An age where,
The politicians drive,
Their condescending lies,
And corporations rise,
While little people die,
Novotel, taco bell and all that's going straight to hell,
Wallet chained fashion brains,
Faking all their "wish you wells",
Jesus saves if you behave,
Give up on your life today,
Children die,
Leaders lie.

The frequency of vacancy extends,
With each new day that you'd have us betray,
Our own and selves to you,
And all that we don't believe in,
'Til piece by piece we find release within,
And away from here.
Track Name: All The While
And I don't wanna be,
'Round here no more,
'Round here no more,
If I can't have a drink.
I don't wanna talk,
Don't wanna talk,
I don't wanna talk,
I'm trying not to think.
And it's getting a little bit close to the knuckle,
It's getting a little bit close to the bone.

All the while my while keeps slipping away,
All the while my while keeps slipping away,
And time takes time I understand but,
Oh my god, yeah good god damn oh,
All the while my while keeps slipping away.

And I don't wanna run,
Don't wanna run,
I don't wanna run,
But I don't know nothin' else.
I'd love to stay,
I'd love to say,
That I'd love to stay,
But I don't know nothin' else.
And it's getting a little bit close to the knuckle,
It's getting a little bit close to the bone.

All the while my while keeps slipping away,
All the while my while keeps slipping away,
And time takes time I understand but,
Oh my god, yeah good god damn oh,
All the while my while keeps slipping away.
Track Name: False Alarms
It's just the world,
Running through my head,
It's just a girl,
Running through my head,
Sometimes I get like this,
And there's nothing can be said,
It's just the world,
And it's running through my head.

She got bills,
Running through her head,
Things that kill,
Running through her head,
Sometimes it gets like this,
And there's nothing can be said,
It seems the world,
Got to running through her head.

And there's nothing to do,
Nothing to see,
We're all there,
And it's nothing to do,
With you or me,
I'm all there,
It's all around,
Encompassing,
Living life,
Takes a stomach of steel.

I've got it all,
Running through my head,
My whole world,
Running through my head,
Just gotta see me through,
'Cause there's nothing can be said,
Sometimes the world,
Gets to running through our heads.

And there's nothing to do,
Nothing to see,
We're all there,
And it's nothing to do,
With you or me,
I'm all there,
It's all around,
Encompassing,
Living life,
Takes a stomach of steel.
Track Name: The Lady Sees In Circles
There's something happening here I don't understand,
But I don't wanna let it go,
There's something shining all the way down here,
And you don't wanna see it glow,
And I could, be true, to you, in this gloom,
But you can't see a damn thing straight,
You don't know, your ghosts, from your hopes,
And I can't seem to make 'em sing.

I'd like to look into those dazzling eyes,
With the longing that you deserve,
I'd like to look into those dazzling eyes,
Without feeling like it's gonna hurt,
And I could, be true, to you, in this gloom,
But you can't see a damn thing straight,
You don't know, your ghosts, from your hopes,
And I can't seem to make 'em sing.

I could have loved you in another life,
4 weeks or so and we'd be doing fine,
I wish that life could be otherwise,
But I don't wanna look at you and lie.

I could have loved you in another life,
4 weeks or so and we'd be doing fine,
I wish that life could be otherwise,
But don't you dare look at me and lie.
