Track Name: Five Years
Stand still, I'm coming close
I will feel ill, until I know
that we can steal a thousand appealing sounds
inside three days
This room is getting colder
I've seen the days get shorter now I know
how it is to get hit with the change

So what's another five years of blood, sweat and tears?
Why would you throw it away to get away from here?
So what's another ten souls with gigantic holes
Inside the ribcage of everyone that we hold close

One miss, I'll feel it until I die
This is the mistake of my life
One hit, I've never felt so good or felt so high
Change in the atmosphere
Waiting for you to hear
The work, I can't, I'll try again
until we pass our prime

So what's another five years of blood, sweat and tears?
Why would you throw it away to get away from here?
So what's another ten souls with gigantic holes
Inside the ribcage of everyone that we hold close

"Throw it away"
But I don't want to
Track Name: Leaving
Because everyone goes away for the summer
But you don't believe that I'll be back sooner than you heard

I don't mean to hurt you
I wish you weren't true
But now I have to leave you
The train's here, I love you

Because everyone drifts away from each other
But I don't want to be like the others.
Track Name: I'm A "K"
It's been too long since I've last held you in my arms
It's been too long since I last met all of your friends
But who is this? The one who replaced me since I've been gone?
But who is this? The one who replaced me after so long

So as I sit here I'm left to diagnose
How long will cigarette smoke be clogging up your air?
With a perennial, what's left but overdose?
Because I don't want to choke on the words that I wish I could bare

Like when you ask about the life I'm leading
And I can't count the doctors that I'm seeing
So I'll just lie about the way I'm feeling
"Oh, I'm just fine"

So get me batteries for flashlights
I'm looking for you, and I'm looking for pastimes
I'm looking for something that I thought I had
I thought that I had it don't tell me that I made it up
And who is this? The one who betrayed me after so long?
No, who is this? The one who I'm sure hasn't done any wrong.

So as I sit here I'm left to diagnose
How long will cigarette smoke be clogging up your air?
With a perennial, what's left but overdose?
Because I don't want to choke on the words that I wish I could bare

Like when you ask about the life I'm leading
And I can't count the doctors that I'm seeing
So I'll just lie about the way I'm feeling
"Oh, I'm just fine"

We don't talk now, I don't think that you want to see my face.
We don't talk now, I don't think that I want to see your face.
Oh.
Track Name: Trustbuster
The wilderness shakes under his feet
A tree he disemboweled like meat
The fear to go, not left discreet
The wolves howl to his deceit

But they are planning their revenge:
Destroy the concrete left by men
The flowers will bloom once again

The trust is lost with the machine
A patron of the anarchy
He's lost the will, he'll fight no more
The wolves will feed upon his corpse

Because they have planned out their revenge
Destroyed the concrete left by men
They're gone forever this is when
The flowers will bloom once again
Track Name: Take Me Home
Take me home
It's been a long night
All I want to do
Is lay next to you
Underneath the moonlight

Lightning strikes from inside your voice
Where awful things hide underneath the noise
That keeps me from sleep and decorates my walls
With splattered patterns that echo through the halls
As I walk by in the middle of the night
To see if a light is shining through your door
And more so if I can make it to the stairs
Before you become aware of my stare

And we'll lay like this 'till the sunrise
Keep your voice down
I don't want them to hear us right now

Once we pass the gate, I'll do it for our sake
Straight to the box which beholds the name
Of the man that keeps your emotions low
Head right through the back door and go
Straight through the woods and under the stars
Over the mountains we've left so far,
So good, we've made it and we won't turn back
Cover up the tracks and we'll cut the slack
Track Name: Green
Bring out the worst in me, you haven't seen it yet
The worst is yet to come
I'll hide my face and walk away from all the things that are at stake
It's a quarter after three and I believe that I can't sleep
Without the confirmation I've been waiting for
the ending that we'd fallen for

I'll move away, move closer to everything that I used to hate
And most often you're just another heart attack waiting to happen

With several hours past I've found no ways to ask
If bad things come in threes then why can't the good things

I left a note on the counter
It said that I hadn't found her
I've hid my face and walked away
from all the things that are at stake
I wish I hadn't've shouted
But then I wish it was louder
The confirmation I'd been waiting for
the ending that we'd fallen for

I've moved away, moved closer to everything that I used to hate
And most often you're just another heart attack waiting to happen

With several hours past I've found no ways to ask
If bad things come in threes then why can't the good things

I've found my face, and I've embraced
All of the things that are at stake
Track Name: Sank Frinatra
Blind from the glow, but what do you know?
A disappointment
Couldn't let go because although
this constant torment
was killing me, was killing you
I still stayed silent
After we slow down we may see
that we are dormant

Why can't we pretend that love doesn't end?
I can't comprehend:

"I'm sorry but I tried. You gave up. I'm sick of searching for the answers in my life. I'm fed up."

I went with the flow, I trekked through the snow
I still got nothing
It just goes to show, the more that you know
More time's spent suffering

Why can't we pretend you're more than a friend?
I can't comprehend:

"I'm sorry but I tried. You gave up. I'm sick of searching for the answers in my life. I'm fed up."

I just want to see you again.
Track Name: Nosferatu
Grabbed their coats, they're off to their house
The air is stale and it's getting dark out
The day was fun but it just couldn't last
They've got to run they've got to get home fast
As they are walking on, he turns and grabs her arm
He stops, and finally says we haven't felt this good since we sixteen years old

They should've just been going home
They should've just been going home
Now that they're out here all alone
They will not be going home

Hear a noise, there's someone else here
They look around, it's too dark to see clear
The night was fun but it just couldn't last
They've got to run, got to get out of there fast
As they are walking on, he turns and grabs her arm
He pulls, and then he realizes he won't be seeing her ever again

They should've just been going home
They should've just been going home
Now that they're out here all alone
They will not be going home

You think you can go home
Track Name: Standing
Can't stand anywhere 'cause
Anywhere is nowhere where you came from
Can't stand anything 'cause
Anything reminds you of something that you're plagued from
Got nothing to live for but nothing to die for 'cause
Everything you can die for you are saved from
Got nothing to pray for but nothing to sin for 'cause
Anyone you can sin with has been saved from what's made them

So when you fall you know you fall for us all
When you call you know you're calling it off
Can't stand anything 'cause
Anything is nothing where you came from

Can't stand anywhere 'cause
Everywhere reminds you of somewhere where you're plagued from
Got nothing to die for but nothing to live for 'cause
Everything you can live for you are safe from
Got no one to sin with but no one to pray for 'cause
Everyone you can pray for has been saved from what's made them

So when you fall you know you fall for us all
When you call you know you're calling it off
So when you fall you know you fall for us all
And when you call you know you're calling it off
Track Name: Don't Speak
I've been thinking 'bout the words that you've said
Tryna figure out what the hell have they meant
"Don't speak, cuz I've got something that you might need

I've been thinking 'bout a thousand ways
that I've been thinking about
how I finally found you, how I finally found you"

Reached the confessional, scream like an animal, "life's been so abysmal, I feel so abnormal,"
your voice is so atonal, your words are so emotional, "Why was this abortional I'm sorry that I left you all alone"

Now the words are settling in my head
And I'm wondering "How the fuck can you live?"
Don't speak, I need to say this before you leave

Don't Speak.
Track Name: Laid It On Your Girl
It was a Saturday night, I was feeling nice and right
I saw a pretty lady across the bar, she caught my eye
Well I was really nice, real nice and polite
I took her to the bathroom, and I made her feel alright
And then I felt a tap on my shoulder:

Oops.

I laid it on your girl, laid it on your girl, laid it on your girl
That's right, I rocked her world, she loves me now
I laid it on your girl, laid it on your girl, laid it on your girl
That's right, I rocked her world, she loves me now
I laid it on your girl, ohh

Went out for a smoke, start laying down the jokes
I saw you coming close, I said
"Hey man, hey man, let's just be bros"
Told you was a nice guy,
but then you punched me in between the eyes
But hey, I guess that's just what happens when

I laid it on your girl, laid it on your girl, laid it on your girl
That's right, I rocked her world, she loves me now
I laid it on your girl, laid it on your girl, laid it on your girl
That's right, I rocked her world, she loves me now
I laid it on your girl, ohh

When we're in the old folks' home I'll tell all our friends
About the time, the time, the time that we first met
And when I'm in my grave I'll come back to haunt you
And remind you 'bout the time that

I laid it on your girl, laid it on your girl, laid it on your girl
That's right, I rocked her world, she loves me now
I laid it on your girl, laid it on your girl, laid it on your girl
That's right, I rocked her world, she loves me now
I laid it on your girl, ohh

Made her say "ohh!"
