I believe there's meaning
No I believe there's nothing
[x14]




And I Told Them I Invented Times New Roman

But now you know that I am cold
(Take me out now, I've dropped the mast down)
And now I am found
(Take me out now, I've dropped the mast down)

Duck down, then hide, behind the file cabinet
Duck down, then hide, behind the file cabinet, down
Without ever letting go I knew you'd gone
Duck down, then hide, behind the file cabinet
Duck down, then hide, behind the file cabinet, down
Without ever letting go I knew you'd gone astray
Stranded here in this cold atmosphere.
Waiting for the lifeless words to come from your mouth
Enduring every sound

This is not why the cast is hollow
Sending the rats to follow
Under the weight of all these eyes
Fry

But now you know that I am cold
(Take me out now, I've dropped the mast down)
And now I am found
(Take me out now, I've dropped the mast down)

I lay without understanding
I don't know why I feel this way
Oh lay down girl take my world
I know why I can't see your face
I've placed every mole there is to place on your wasted body
Oh, lay down girl and take my world
I know why I can't see your face

As the window left shattered now
We saw the withered body try to shout
You thought the price of your life was devout
And told us some things you can’t live without
And was this what was best for us
And was this what was best for us

Just let it show (Rest where you ought to be)
(Block out your misery)
I’ll bring you far (Wait for the call)
Well I’ll go for it (You left in the hallway)
I’ll beg you when you know (People they change)
(And I would still be ashamed)
I’ll beg you when it shows (To let the weight of the world)
Well I’ll go for it (Rest on your shoulders)
I don't believe the lies (I’ll fight until the war is over)
I don't believe the lies (I’ll fight until the war is over)
I’ll die for you (I’ll fight until the war is over)
(I’ll fight until the war is over)
I don't believe the lies (I’ll fight until the war is over)
I don't believe the lies (I’ll fight until the war is over)
It’s staged for you (I’ll fight until the war is over)
(I’ll fight until the war is over)

Left at my feet rests the soul of my brother
Vengeance will fall for the deeds of another




It's Safe to Say You Dig the Backseat

I threw her away on the second we met
I couldn't have lied, I tried
I was cashing a check
(The ink was smeared)
(The lines were drawn and scribbled unclear)
(A cancellation, it’s time to learn to fly)
[x2]

Now that I've decided that you can’t be
Now that I've decided that you can’t be trusted
Now that I've decided that you can’t be
Now that I've decided that you can’t be trusted
Now that I've decided that you can’t be
Now that I've decided that you can’t be

One by one (Wasn't that fun)
This party dies (Fade away)
Late night phone calls that end in surprise

I can't believe you would give up your dignity (Fade away)
Just to take a ride with me
And how does it feel to be used
Climb in the back seat
Like luggage

Whores don't trip
They bleed on the tapestry
Whores don't trip
They bleed at the bar
[x2]

It’s your persistence that makes me sick
It’s not the sight of your face
And now I am so faint, caught up in just this way
I know that you can be more than this
This wasn't what I wanted
You said I sewed that dream alive
Climb farther into hate, is it this back seat making you itch?
Morals become something from a dream
This isn't the way to blow off steam
It’s all in your head

Give up this is making me sick
My patience is wearing thin
I will be leaving you now stay away for long

Drag his body down to the mill (Stationed wit, I believe will go there)
Cut the ice with counterfeit bills
I'll take my share (Stationed wit, I believe will go there)
Like lightning bolts that strike down in pairs (Stationed wit, I believe will go there)

This is all justified
This is all justified (Stationed wit, I believe will go there)
Step aside and watched the lie
This is all justified (Stationed wit, I believe will go there)
This is all justified (Stationed wit, I believe will go there)
Won’t heal in time (Stationed wit, I believe will go there)
This is all justified now

Now we’re all afraid to see why we can’t give it up
But now your shirt comes off
I need something more tonight than your word




Strawberry Andre

Dressed in time to sip the wine
and cover your head
Nice of you to stay a few
and bleed on my bed
People flake, they wake and bake
Forget what you said
Obviously, not possibly
You didn't take your meds

And here we go climb
(I got a house with a pool and dog with a three car garage)
And now come home for all these ways to ways to go
(All the way down)

Cut out the signs come inside
where we lined up all these fashions
I’ll take your wine, just take this side
Into the light arms are wide only when you know

I fear I can’t believe its you (Nice tie, meet me concubine)
I fear I can’t believe its you (She’s not drunk its enthusiasm)
I fear I can’t believe its you (Nice tie, meet me concubine)
I fear (She’s not drunk its enthusiasm)
I fear I can’t believe its you (Nice tie, meet me concubine)
I fear I can’t believe its you (She’s not drunk its enthusiasm)
I fear I can’t believe its you (Lipstick, wet painted faces)
I fear (Of people with no regrets)

Slit her throat on the frying pan
You caught cold and forgot the plan
Turn the dial on the oven…
Until the skin has got that even tan
Slit her throat on the frying pan
You caught cold and forgot the plan
Turn the dial on the oven man
Until the skin has got that even tan

Dressed in time to sip the wine
and cover your head
Nice of you to stay a few
and bleed on my bed
People flake, they wake and bake
Forget what you said
Obviously, not possibly
You didn't take your meds

I fear I can’t believe its you (Nice tie, meet me concubine)
I fear I can’t believe its you (She’s not drunk its enthusiasm)
I fear I can’t believe its you (Nice tie, meet me concubine)
I fear (She’s not drunk its enthusiasm)
I fear I can’t believe its you (Nice tie, meet me concubine)
I fear I can’t believe its you (She’s not drunk its enthusiasm)
I fear I can’t believe its you (Lipstick, wet painted faces)
I fear (Of people with no regrets)

Oh what?
Come into the light, oh




Lemon Meringue Tie

Caught between one thick line
I can never see in the dark
Can you see at all?
Can you see at all?
Can you see at all?

[x2]
And now you go (Slip me the Vicodin)
This world is upside down
Night at the symphony
The bar is closing down (And now you go)
Slip me an antidote
Empty the cashbox out

[Chorus:]
And I don't know why
I don’t know why I fight for you this way
Fight for you this way
Fight for you this way
(Take the call and quickly lie about)
(Who you've been seeing lately)
(Then forget about it all)

Stage lights are burning up
Running faster to this spot
Staring at these faces
Torn from all these places
And I won’t go

Mace yourself, blame someone else
Fall face down, fluid leaking out your eyeballs
Mace yourself, blame someone else
It’s okay, no one will believe you
Mace yourself, blame someone else
Fall face down, fluid leaking out your eyeballs
Mace yourself, blame someone else
It’s okay, no one will believe you now

And I believed you’re not okay
And I won’t go far
And I believed you’re not okay

[Chorus]

Hey girl, you're the best
I'm a sucker, maybe I should fuck her now




The Backwards Pumpkin Song

[x2]
Sit down, call off the cavalry
I’m stealing the jewels
In a slow motion action replay
Bar fight, I invented chivalry
Notch in my bed post
Slow motion action replay

Now the fog is rolling in
Bringing us that much closer to a senseless end
Oh, please don't get up, I’ll get that for you
It’s selfish to say I believe when
I believe all these lines and long enough

[x2]
(Don't just lay on the ground son)
(Don't just drown in the fountain)
And I don't know you
I don’t know you
[x2]
(You got stuck preaching action)
(I fell down using tact son)
And I don't know you
I don’t know you

[Chorus:]
Bring back this fight tonight
All of these lies that I uphold (Don’t mind them they can’t elope)
For one good note (Leave them off of the great boat)
Bring back this fight tonight
All of these lies that I uphold (Don’t mind them they can’t elope)
For one false hope (Leave them off of the great boat)

One false hope

Go on and fix your tie
And just lead the line out
Needless to say I stumble, you play all night long
[x8]
Fix your tie and just lead the line out
Needless to say

[Chorus]

[x4]
Now you'll find, as I rewind
Now you'll find it’s not the point

One Love




Antlion

[x2]
(Something's wrong, something's wrong)
There's a bomb in my face
Decorated in white lace
(Something's wrong, something's wrong)
When people they look at you
Do you think
Do you think of food?

Stretch yourself (Carving out some lungs with a stake)
as far as this can go at night (Brontosaurus tracks, relax)
(Carving out some lungs with a stake)
Follow when I row (Brontosaurus tracks, relax)

Hey, is that your lady?

[Chorus:]
She gave it willingly
Hey wait, I've got the parts (To fix your head)
(To fix your head)
(To fix…)
She gave it willingly
(Hey wait, I’ve got the parts) To fix your head
Fix your head
Fix your head

Wait right here
I'm going to explode
wait right here
I'm exploding
I've got to be in your car
I'm still shooting even par

Stretch yourself (Carving out some lungs with a stake)
as far as this can go at night (Brontosaurus tracks, relax)
(Carving out some lungs with a stake)
Follow when I row (Brontosaurus tracks, relax)

Hey, is that your lady?

[Chorus]

[x2]
(Something's wrong, something's wrong)
There's a bomb in my face
Decorated in white lace
(Something's wrong, something's wrong)
When people they look at you
Do you think
Do you think of food?




Turn Off The Lights I'm Watching Back To The Future

Take the car, and turn it into our alibis
discard the body, pop some pills and you'll be find
Purge, then binge, restart and, insert the sutures
Turn off the lights, I'm watching back to the future
Before we go to far I wont let you take this light
Breath in all mistakes without coming clean
into hobbling faith. no one I wanna know
Cause we laughed at assimilation
Is this surreal tonight? Well go for all these wins
Is this surreal tonight ill go far and ill ride

Go on a brush me off. Brush me off brush me off
Waltzing right into the bank
They said that you have got a map of my insides
Purge, then binge, pop some pills and you'll be fine
Stay back from our lungs
Coming off the lie I will separate.
it only looks only looks so far well fill these holes
Now I am you
Remove the ribs if you can't lean sideways
I thought my words would have mass appeal
Costs your life, sly as always
I thought my words would have mass appeal
Cover your eyes
I've stabbed you in the back
you stop this, I can't
please stop me
right here
I wont do this again
I can't do this, I love you
for all of this shit
why, why, Help




Open Your Eyes and Look North

Sunrise
wake up stand up look into
Red eyes
Stayed up all night thinking of
Reasons why
I can't feel your skin

Is this plaguing your brain?
Is this plaguing your brain?

Couldn't brace yourself in the morphine hallway
lying on the ground with a heart as a ball and chain
message to the bird I know your wings will be fine
spread them on the floor, learn to heal with take time

Close the hatch and lock us inside (Now breath in wide I'll forgive you later)
Close the hatch and lock us inside (Come on it's time just stand aside)

All these reasons why
I am reaching wide
I am sticking to all these one liners
and all this means
and all I have to say

Stay till my word
Because I can send you to the side

Cut off these ties
till this is why
we were holding to one night
breathe in without love
hear me form these lines
falling in love
I have been reading lies.

Watch this turn to dust
I won't know when you've fallen
Now it all takes shape
I won't go until you follow

Couldn't brace yourself in the morphine hallway
lying on the ground with a heart as a ball and chain
message to the bird I know your wings will be fine
spread them on the floor, learn to heal with take time

I don't even get the movie
cold ice feels so soothing
I don't even get the movie
cold ice feels so soothing

Watch this turn to dust
I won't know when you've fallen
Now it all takes shape
I won't go until you follow

I don't feel anything, stuck in the passing lane
I don't feel anything, stuck in the passing lane
Break, wait, stop, back off the bitch
Break, wait, stop, back off the bitch
Break, wait, stop, back off the bitch
Break, wait, stop, back off the bitch

Block out the sound of the police beckoning
duck in the back and the lights will shut off again
You can go for it just don't ignore it
ration the wine, laughing in revelry
You can go for it just don't ignore it
caution I'm drugged, we'll here comes the symphony
the rapist gives God a hug.




Surprise! I'm from Cuba, Everyone Has One Brain

Hey girl, Ima eat your soul
I got this sword, dashing young and bold
lets collect, hearts on the way
plus two, to you, in the evil bay
so hey girl, what should we do
get clues, drink some, potions that are blue
well you know there just isn't time, I don't got the time
I don't got the time
Oh look up girl show me what you have to use
Oh look up girl
right now I'd be the bitch, but I left you, I left you in the ditch
bite the line, remove the words that follow
turn the key or in the mud you wallow
burning bushes may be cold as shoulder
flip the latch, go on and catch the boulder
This battles narrowing, hold off
I surrender, stay for me. One door
Can't fake now let go
Step back, let go
All of those who took the rode before you, they were possessed by the dark power
but you, you shall do this alone
as you walk through valley of the gorgonian tempest
the tri elemental black darkness was engulfing the sovereign lands
use the plus nine staff of the bobcat a voice said from above
defeat the demon of rathcorf and you will restore peace to the land
and lineage of your blood
step back, let go
One night I woke with all these hopes
Say one more line
Stay for me
With all these hopes
I believe there's meaning, no I believe there's nothing




12 Hours, 630 Miles

tarting or ending.
Fading away.
I am cold tonight.
I have your faith.
Well I feel you thumping.
Just don't run from me.
I'll follow you only.
Until you come alive.
