Track Name: Sunlight
There are no words to be had
Lost my language again
How did I end up in here?
It's all just broken bottles jabbing into souls
Right now I'm thinking of leaving this place
Without any
Colors
Colors

And you burst into the room just like sunlight
Flood my eyes, carry me away from all of this bullshit
Fix me with that look that says, "Now, you just wait a minute,
You'll not leave me here all alone,
So just pass that thing my way
We'll never ever come back down
Float around with the sunlight"

Things keep spinning around my head
Giving way to neutral tones
Of one room after another
Faceless and just the same
Was this place always so big
To swallow me without even a second thought
Give just about anything to
Leave for some place with some colors
Colors

And you burst into the room just like sunlight
Flood my eyes, carry me away from all of this bullshit
Fix me with that look that says, "Now, you just wait a minute,
You'll not leave me here all alone,
So just pass that thing my way
We'll never ever come back down
Float around with the sunlight"

Was it something I imagined,
Or didn't all these bottles used to come in browns and greens
Instead of grays?
Dare I believe in all these memories of motor skills
As I stumble into everything I wonder
Didn't maybe this place used to have some
Colors
Colors
Track Name: She Reaches
Another night alone with her
That isn't going anywhere
The city passing by our window
We've seen it more than once tonight
Same old scene, same old things
Though I still die every time she reaches
For the bottle between my knees
This road curves on and on and on and on

And am I too damn drunk to ask myself (to ask myself)
A simple question and I know I know the answer
When will you wake up, my friend
When will you wake the fuck up?

How can I still be so surprised to find
Her eyes are for the night
Passing by my field of vision
Proud-blue as streetlights
To burn and bleed, to coalesce
In the back alleys of this dream
I still die every time
I find myself reaching

And are we too hung up to ask ourselves (to ask ourselves)
A simple question and we know we know the answer
When when you wake up, my friend
When will you wake the fuck up?

And still she smiles so hastily when I get close to clearly see
All the lines of her, together,
All of my world for this moment
It just passes into evening
She turns away
She turns away
Could it be I'm reaching for
Something she can't let me see?

And am I too damn drunk to ask myself (to ask myself)
A simple question and I know I know the answer
When will you wake up, my friend
When will you wake the fuck up?

Another night alone with her
That isn't going anywhere
The city passing by our window
We've seen it more than once tonight
Same old scene, same old things
Though I still die every time she reaches
She reaches
She reaches
She reaches
Track Name: Fury
The things we live through
Are seldom as simple
As the stories we tell.
I'm quite aware of the darkness
in your eyes
And I know I wear
The face of your enemy
But I've wanted so long
For you to know, my friend
That you'll always be safe
With me.

She haunts at nightfall
With an eye full of tears
And a head full of empty spaces
Left by her pain
The ghosts of her yesterdays
Flank her
Through the city that's wronged her
Twisted her insides
Until she's broken
She lights a joint in the open
And drives until

It's day again
The sun also rises
Even for the nights when no one asks
For permission
And the creatures of the night
Hide from the eyes of God
They cower behind closed doors
Where they do things to her
I will cut them down
I would burn this world to the ground
To watch the flames in her eyes.

Just beneath her make-up
The scars are still livid
As the night they were made
She checks in the mirror
For chinks in this armor
A thousand times a day
Just beneath her skin
Twisting her insides
The life he left in her
She won't weep in the open
But if she did...

It's day again
The sun also rises
Even for the nights when no one asks
For permission
And the creatures of the night
Hide from the eyes of God
They cower behind closed doors
Where they do things to her
I will cut them down
I will burn this world to the ground
To watch the flames in her eyes.

Put your hand in mine
And we will face the prospect of day
Together
Track Name: Pariah
There's still nothing quite like
A little bit of hope to burn your day
All you can do is stand
A safe distance away from the flames
And outside all chance of damage
You're gonna learn to resent the world
And my God, I just want in

And she says
"Oh, my pariah, what have you done to me
In your dreams
I wasn't made for things like this."

There's still nothing I can say
To burn this wall into the ground
It just goes higher and higher
Until I cannot breathe
All I can do is stand
A safe distance away from her shame
After all, what would they if they could see
Inside her heart
And, my God, she just wants in
She just wants in

And she says
"Oh, my pariah, what have you done to me
In your dreams
I wasn't made for things like this."

I wasn't made for things like this.

I just want in
I just want inside
I want in
I want inside

And she says
"Oh, my pariah, what have you done to me
In your dreams
I wasn't made for things like this."
Track Name: 1943
Did you notice
How our world's been ending
Since 1943
There are always infidels
To shell into a safe oblivion
An apocalypse to perpetrate
Like it was a marketing campaign
Or a helpful reminder
A commentary on
How we should all live in fear

But could it be
That despite the facts of his story
It would be alright
To simply live our lives and die
I mean,
You've got your heart, 
You've got your eyes
Go out and use them.
Why waste all your time crying out to heaven
Like you can negotiate your fate?
Why waste all your life trying to avoid losing it all

You're going to anyway.

Did you notice how life typically
Merits a second try
And regret is the currency
Of an empire where you and I both live
Where men and women perpetrate atrocities
In the name of
Helpful reminders of how we should all live in fear

But could it be
That despite the facts of his story
It would be alright
To simply live our lives and die
I mean,
You've got your heart, 
You've got your eyes
Go out and use them.
Why waste all your time crying out to heaven
Like you can negotiate your fate?
Why waste all your life trying to avoid losing it all

You're going to anyway.
