Track Name: winterdread
it’s not just the winter’s chill
that makes me feel so ill
grey clouds fill up the sky
and everything here starts to die

it’s when the fall wants to come on fast
when every breath of summer might be the last
the thought of cold gets in my head

the dread, the dread, the dread
the dread, the dread, the dread

and yes, it’s nice to be alive
and every season has its place and time
the fear lingers in the air
my thoughts turn to despair

it’s the turning from light to dark
that puts a dagger into my heart
the thought of cold gets in my head

the dread, the dread, the dread
the dread, the dread, the dread

it’s not just the winter’s chill
that makes me feel so ill
the fear lingers in the air
my thoughts turn to despair

the dread, the dread, the dread
the dread, the dread, the dread

Track Name: burning heart
City streets, burning down
an inferno in my town
I don’t know where it came from
I was asleep, safe at home
now here it is, my wildest dream
and I’m wondering if it was me
I want to stop and stare
but maybe it’s best I disappear

With the flame in my heart, did I burn it down?
With the flame in my mind, did I burn it down?
With the flame in my soul, did I burn it down?
With the flame in my heart, did I burn it down?
ashes to ashes, dust to dust
ashes to ashes, dust to dust

visions of fire dance in my head
there’s a lighter beside my bed
my clothes stink of gasoline
I don’t think it was a dream
the night fills with piercing cries
I’m thinking up alibis
what happens if I close my eyes,
will another flame start to rise?

with the flame in my heart, will I burn it down?
with the flame in my mind, will I burn it down?
with the flame in my soul, will I burn it down?
with the flame in my heart, will I burn it down?
ashes to ashes, dust to dust
ashes to ashes, dust to dust

...inst...

with the flame in my heart, I’ll burn it down
with the flame in my mind, I’ll burn it down
with the flame in my soul, I’ll burn it down
with the flame in my heart, I’ll burn it down
ashes to ashes, dust to dust
ashes to ashes, dust to dust
ashes to ashes, dust to dust
ashes to ashes, dust to dust

Track Name: abortion weather
There was a shiver in my bones
And it wasn’t from the weather
It was the weight of their stares
Trying to drag me down
They don’t know my life
If we’d be good together
They have an imaginary friend
I shouldn’t let down

There’s no need to cry
I’ve made a choice for my life
No one can scare me this time
Doing what I think is right

They call this the path to hell
Committing the worst of sins
Reciting from their pages
of years and years of shame
I’m a stranger passing through
Like the stranger within
Our lives weren’t meant to cross
We’ll go our separate ways

There’s not a cloud in the sky

There’s no need for goodbyes
Or quiet contemplations
Don’t need to pray for forgiveness
Or start hating myself
They never cared about my life
Never learned my situation
So they can take their blame
and go fuck themselves

There’s no need to cry
I’ve made a choice for my life
No one can scare me this time
Doing what I think is right

Track Name: traveler
please let me come home
it’s dark at night and I am scared
please let me come home
my fire is not enough
to keep me safe
to keep me warm
to make me whole

so please let me come home
I miss my friends and I miss you
please let me come home
the stars are too far away
to keep me warm
to keep me safe
to find my way

so please let me come home
it’s dark at night and I am scared
the stars are too far away
my mind is not enough
to keep me sane
to make me whole
to stop the fear

Track Name: vampire days
I don't dream like I used to
The pictures aren't black and white
And I don't sleep like I used to
I'm captivated by the night
Now I'm living in vampire days
Where I never see the sun
And I daydream of immortality
Longing to be someone

Now that I dream in color
I’m no longer satisfied
I'm driven by my hunger
like a creature of the night

I got all the precious time
And can waste it if I please
I can be the life of the party
And I think that's what I need
Because I want to be wanted
The name that’s on your lips
Because if I can live forever
There'd be meaning to all of this

Now that I dream in color
I am no longer satisfied
I'm driven by my hunger
like a creature of the night

If there's a story to be written
Let me be a character
Whose destiny was always meant to be
Bigger and brighter
Bright as the sun I never see
Big as the doubts that haunt
I'm alive in the night
Looking for something I haven't got

Now that I dream in color
I’m no longer satisfied
I'm driven by my hunger
like a creature of the night

Track Name: Marco Polo
the price of tea in China is more than I can spend
‘cause I wasted all my money trying to buy a friend
but they left me abandoned on some godforsaken road
now I’ll have to hitchhike if I’ll ever make it home

ooh ooh ahh

the road to hell is paved with things I do not understand
if my life has a reason, I was never told the plan
you can write all my successes on a single grain of rice
it would say your name; that’s all that I got right

ooh ooh ahh

in the grand scheme of things I am barely worth my salt
I left a trail of broken lives and they were all my fault
I seethe from the blisters, cobblestones under my feet
if I never make it home, I’ll die incomplete

ooh ooh ahh

Track Name: Zapruder film
Every word you say, a bullet to the brain
Coming from your mouth of lies
Secrets you keep, pull me into the deep
Like a romance between spies
Don’t know what to trust, it’s all too much
Gossip burning in my ears
These mysteries and conspiracies
What happens when I’m not here?

When I’m not here…. (believe what you want to)
When I’m not here…. (perceive what you want to)
When I’m not here…. (believe what you want to)
When I’m not here

What’s your angle, what’s your play
Get me hanging on your every word
Deciphering got my head spinning
My thoughts all become a blur
The things you said, pictures in my head
Mean nothing when you disappear
Story incomplete, am I being deceived
What happens when I’m not here?

When I’m not here…. (believe what you want to)
When I’m not here…. (perceive what you want to)
When I’m not here…. (believe what you want to)
When I’m not here

You were the one who fired the first shot

Track Name: bodega cat
I have never known sorrow
like the love you give to me
and how you take it away
The way you tear me up inside
with such delicate grace
and yet I always stay

I’ll never be free of you
Never be free of you
Never be free of your love

There is passion in your heart
and there is cruelty
I take them with both hands
When my tears stain everything
you don’t wipe them away
still you’re all that I have

I’ll never be free of you
Never be free of you
Never be free of your love

You’ll never break my heart
you’ll keep it in a box
bury it in the attic
kept close but still lost
And if I ever need you
you’ll be there for a time
just long enough to feel like
you’re mine

I’ll never be free of you
Never be free of you
Never be free of your love

Track Name: like you think
I’m a wild beast, I’m a wolf
I’m a vampire - here’s your proof
late at night
I slip away
and find myself
another day

you don’t know me
you don’t know me
you don’t know me
like you think you do

I’m a wild one, I’m a cat
I’m a lost soul, no doubt of that
I leave my skin
by your fire
to swim the deep
as I desire

you don’t know me
you don’t know me
you don’t know me
like you think you do

...inst...

you’re a spirit
you’re a thief
you’ll leave me broken
you’ll make me weak
you’ll burn my pelt
and trap me here
forever dull
and full of fear

you don’t know me
you don’t know me
you don’t know me
like you think you do

you don’t know me
you don’t know me
you don’t know me
like you think you do

you don’t know me
you don’t know me
you don’t know me
like you think you do
