Track Name: Lil' Bandit
VERSE:
Up the stairs and through the window
Tie your sheets into a rope
Through the backyard, to the alley
And to the street where the lights
Shine down the avenue

Stepping over the cracks in sidewalks
Limping fast just to escape
He's approaching fast behind you
With the steel of the blade
Shining in the moonlight

CHORUS:
With a cry in your throat
And the sound of his breath
Just behind you now, yeah
He's gaining ground (x2)

You've never seen him before
Never seen him before
But now you'll see him again
For the rest of your life
His image burned into your mind

VERSE:
In the brush inside the darkness
With his footsteps coming close
You lay in wait as he approaches
And with the flash of the knife
Blood runs down the avenue
Track Name: Goodbye Teeth
VERSE:
I sat in silence
Just to bide my time
I hung from a thumbnail moon
Like a wet blanket

Like clipped beaks
Cawing at midnight
and the static from a broken TV
I'm screaming

CHORUS:
Goodbye teeth
Gnashing through smoke
Like broken pieces
Of a whiskey bottle

Yeah, you're gunna get wasted
With your life on the line
And ya stew on a Monday
But Tuesday you feel like cryin'
So you look to the moon
But it's stayin' quiet
So you hide inside yourself
And swim down to the bottom
Of a bottle of wine

VERSE:
And I've got nothing
To offer up
But poor excuses
For the way I am

Like dog-eared pages
Of a thrift store book
I bend under the weight
Of everything I've done

CHORUS:
Goodbye teeth
Gnashing through smoke
Like broken pieces
Of a whiskey bottle

Yeah, you're gunna get restless
With your life on the line
No paycheck's been coming
For the fifth week at a time
Rent is due on a Monday
But by Sunday night
You're counting bills in a shoebox
Til' the sun's starting to rise
And you turn
To the bottle of wine
Track Name: O.C. Era
VERSE:
Oh, Sierra, why do you bring me down?
(I don't know what you want)
Your heart grows cold and you start
pushing me around
(You get inside my head and you say it again)
Every time I'm right, well you say I'm wrong
(It's always my fault)
But it's all just a ploy so you
Feel like you belong
(Guess I'll always forget what was said in the end)

CHORUS:
One of these days, it might be soon
The sun is eclipsed behind the moon
One of these days you'll wait your turn
Oh, Sierra, that time can't come too soon

VERSE:
Oh, Sierra, why do you hurt so bad?
(Was it something I said?)
Is it a sign of the times that you used to have?
(Do you feel like you're still somehow missing out?)
Walking backwards won't get you that far
(There's a difference between)
Just because you're adored, it don't make you a star
(The things that you want and the things that you need)

CHORUS:
One of these days, it might be soon
The sun is eclipsed behind the moon
One of these days you'll wait your turn
Oh, Sierra, that time can't come too soon

OUTRO:
All the things you thought that were said against you
On the contrary they were only said to help you
Track Name: Sea Monster
VERSE:
Limbs tight around your neck
Wrapped around your throat
Try to catch your breath
It stops your heart
(Right now, right now, right now)

Well, c'mon now, hold it together
Oh, just give in, that light is getting closer
I want it, I want it, I want it to end

CHORUS:
It's now drownin' you, baby,
No matter what you try to do

VERSE:
Pushin' with all it's strength
Forcing you in the dark
Swallow your whole body
In a single gulp
(Right now, right now, right now)

Well, c'mon now, hold it together
Oh, just give in, that light is getting closer
I want it, I want it, I want it to end

CHORUS:
It's now drownin' you, baby,
No matter what you try to do

OUTRO:
Will you find peace?
Peace and harmony?
Please, oh please,
Just put these eyes to sleep
Track Name: Nobody Cares
VERSE:
Dear friend, the world can be vicious and dull
You can try to ignore it, try and stand tall
Conclusions of nothin', no lesson to learn
The pain that you feel is the pain that you earned

CHORUS:
Every word and every thought
Inside your head is where it falls apart
Fussin' and fightin' won't get you that far
Wouldn't be that different if you tried from the start

VERSE:
Might as well lay here dead as a stone
Nothin' you do gets you half the way home
Don't whine or complain, cuz nobody cares
Dry off those tears and shake off that head

CHORUS:
Every word and every thought
Inside your head is where it falls apart
Fussin' and fightin' won't get you that far
Wouldn't be that different if you tried from the start

OUTRO:
Might as well lay here a while
Cuz nobody cares
Might as well lay here a while
Cuz soon you'll be dead
Track Name: Scrape the Sky
Standing inside awkward time
Grinning mad delusion
At the hurt, the hate
Pretty games of love

Too high to initiate flight
Too sober for home
Flutter of hope springs
Lament for youth

Hello-hands of the mind
Reaching for tact
But bracing great mistakes
Of poignant thought and headache

Influenced by right now
Falling in spit of seconds
The jarred cry of a wish
Wakes up slow

To think and ruin
Words slide off scope fine
And tumble, sigh,
And relive sorrow

Scrape the sky
Track Name: Lonely Hearts
VERSE:
She'd end up in a single room apartment
At the edge of the town
(She drinks alone at night)
With nothing around her
But the buzzing refrigerator sound
(With nothing inside)

Oh, Lonely Hearts

Thousands of footsteps in the corridors
Echoed his tune
(He works alone at night)
And the ghost of her memory
Drifts down the hallways and rooms
(She dematerialized)

CHORUS:
Oh, Lonely Hearts

VERSE:
Now it seems like a million lifetimes ago
(In bohemian lands)
That she brushed up against him
In the evening's carnival glow
(Perfume bottle in hand)

Oh, Lonely Hearts

And when he dialed her number
Trying to call her by phone
(It continued to ring)
It was swallowed by daytime TV
and industrial drone

CHORUS:
Oh, Lonely Hearts
Track Name: Here Comes the Queen
neeuq eht semoc ereh
Track Name: Friendly Foe
VERSE:
Walking in the meadow
Under wind and sparrow wing
Certain that the village
And it's people are in reach
Flames of welcome
Or fires of future foe
Mystic celebrations
And elder's tales told

CHORUS:
Can't survive outside the hive
(Completely madness)
Look to the sun, stars above
(Nothing but air)
Lookin' for a reason why
(Everything is happening)
I'm trapped in my third eye
(Something is lost)

OUTRO:
Run to the sun, run to the sun,
Run to the sun, my love
Track Name: The Cold Fortune
VERSE:
Take a breath, the air is cold
Exhaling really slow
Blood pressure on the rise
Dilation of the eyes

CHORUS:
And I don't know if I can really take it anymore

VERSE:
Ribs flex against the skin
Neurons fire and fear sets in
The body pushes to gain control
Leadership, it comes from your soul

CHORUS:
And I don't know if I can really take it anymore
