1. Your Ex-Lover Is Dead
This scar is a fleck on my porcelain skin
Tried to reach deep but you couldn't get in
Now you're outside me
You see all the beauty
Repent all your sin


2. Set Yourself On Fire
In the darkest part of you that you have ever seen
In the smile of the child staring at the TV screen
In the diary of a priest, in the sheets that lie upon his bed
Out there amongst the waves and inside your lover's head


3. Ageless Beauty
Tattered fingers
Lingering on the warm and foolish
Hardened faces
Graceless, we'll lose the battle
We will always be a light


4. Reunion
Seventeen and half-alive
Headlights illuminate the school
Inhale the powder from the science class, yeah, nearly dying felt so cool
Your face is all that hasnt changed
You're reassembled just like me


5. The Big Fight
Is she in the background?
I just wouldn't know
Did I build you a prison?
Please don't let me go
I've unlocked the doors
But you can't walk away from me


6. What I'm Trying to Say
We fell apart in the parties of the empty heart
We danced the junkies in the shadows of bad modern art
We clicked our heels and we wished we were home
One more tab and your silk hits the chrome


7. One More Night
Dark little heaven at the top of the stairs
Take me like that, ruin it all
Then build it again by the light in the hall
He drops to his knees says please my love, please
I'll kill who you hate, take off that dress, you won't freeze


8. Sleep Tonight
Onto bodies slick and charged
Together just one beating heart
All around us quiet now
We hear the leaves fall to the ground
Morning light upon our bed
An ally while I catch your breath


9. The First Five Times
You leaned upon your elbow
And began to speak to me
But you stopped yourself and kissed me
And I grabbed your lips and told you
I know, I know, I know
I feel the same as you


10. He Lied About Death
A devil born in paradise
A liar loves to lie
Keep watching your back
Killers always have killers on their track
Keep watching the sky
'cause you might get lucky again


11. Celebration Guns
So tomorrow there will be another number
For the one who had a name
A desert wind and a perverse desire to win
History buried in shame


12. Soft Revolution
The revolution wasn't bad
We hit the streets with all we had
A tape recording with the sound
Of the Velvet Underground
A K-Way jacket torn to shreds
And a dream inside our heads


13. Calendar Girl
I dreamed I was dying, as I so often do
And when I awoke I was sure it was true
I ran to the window, threw my head to the sky
And said, "Whoever is up there, please don't let me die."
But I can't live forever, I can't always breathe
One day I'll be sand on a beach by a sea

1. Break Blossom
No conversation
No cigarette to start it up again
No room for heroes
They're already dead
We're breaking


2. 96 Heartbeats
Get somebody else to
Tell you how you feel inside (let it go, let it go)
This seems so surreal
Keg of empty promise
Constantly I feel
Shaking in my bones


3. Silhouettes/Silhouetting
Some things are better off left unsettled
Go close your eyes to try to forget
It's so you to walk all the world's laid footsteps
Hoping that you did nothing at all


4. The Carousel
I walk to the ocean
I'm looking through kaleidoscopes to see the colors
Don't say, you "saw the writing on the walls"
If you believe that, simple words will make a difference
Sick, sick my heart. I want to die so I can stop this crying


5. Acrobat
Tonight, pretend you're a cigarette
And you're being smoked
By a picturesque girl
Do you still wish you were beautiful?
Because you will always be beautiful...


6. Why We Cry at Movies
You're fueled on failure
The mistakes we've made
And regrets we've saved
Have all scarred
Too deep to heal your wounds


7. If I'm Not Out Burning
I'm lighting matches off of you
And burning bridges all for you
Their fires leave a perfect view
Of what seemed to be your mouth
Letting loose one more regret


8. My Glowing Morning Dreams *

9. A Ghost in Drag
And if my words were stone
I'd kiss them in your mouth
And though you're the lion
I'll drag you down


10. Blowing Out a Wish **

11. Goodnite, Noises Everywhere
Here's to bitter ends,
So watch as your friends enjoy sins
And embrace them
Stories they've told through ears on the walls,
Speak softly to them all.

1. Stab City
My heavy head is full of debris
Sometimes I wish this city would sink in the sea
'Cause even when I find the love it's fake
And everything I want to touch would break


2. Summer **

3. A Break, A Pause
I'm an anthropophobiac
Moved from the sticks
With pills in my coat
And wine on my breath
A goodnights rest
On the floor near the bed
Where I rest my head


4. Love Love Love (Love Love)
Suffering is the only thing we're good at
Dreaming picture that
A whole world in a slumber
But don't get too attached to the living
Every single memory's fleeting
That's a fact, being torn asunder


5. Ghosts of York
In a York hotel hall
I am falling to my knees
Softly, as your dress flows,
You say that you're alone.
But I know I can't leave you
Lonely and on your own


6. Milk and Honey
You perfume covered helpless louse,
Look on the bright side
See, every time you laugh out loud
I'm crying inside
I have the sense to be afraid, to be the fool
Try commonsense. Make me believe
Believe in you


7. Be Here Now
Do you want me to explain?
Are you broken at the bone?
Do you try and rearrange a better life,
a bigger home? So turn off the lights
Or at least unplug the phone
I'm a threat when I'm left alone
How many days are you afraid of turning off?
Do you feel like letting go?


8. Kickin' Myself
Heard your broken voice on the telephone
Made my heavy heart sink like a stone
And after all this time, I should have known
You'd let me down right down to the bone
You know you're right, I'm incomplete
And I could never write down what I mean


9. Mariah **

10. Maybe I'm Just Tired ♥ ***
I know I'm not good enough for you
If I can be saved show me the way
Help me help myself, baby
Don't be confused, our love is true
Just tell by the way I'm looking at you
