Track Name: Rant
Oh, well you wear that filth, like Mr. Casey
A non-linear heaven, and its filled with crazies.
Cause baby your damn spit, it could start a war.
Cuz smash-boom’s all, all, you’re looking for-

Oh Rant,
That night-timers gonna pull you somewhere fast
That night-timers going to pull you somewhere fast
She’s gonna, she’s gonna, pull you

Oh when I crashed your show,
You couldn’t let it go, with Christmas tied to the top
Headlights that wouldn’t stop-
Because we crossed out of time, forever it’s now mine,
We’ve got to go inside, before we cross the line

Oh Rant,
That night-timers gonna pull you somewhere fast
That night-timers going to pull you somewhere fast
She’s gonna, she’s gonna, pull you
Track Name: Mild, Medium, Hot
So far to be so high,
thoughts catching on real time while I,
I realize, that I,
Can’t seem to keep my goals,
Pleasure gets what pleasure wants
And oh, it flows

Going deep, deep, down
I will Go,
Hoping there’s something, oh
Something there to cling to,
Oh, to cling to,
That’s not you- I will go

So far to be so low,
All my shots catch the rim of the hole,
And oh it hurts my soul,
Because I can’t seem to keep my goals,
Pleasure gets what pleasure wants,
And oh, it flows
Telling me I’m going deep, deep down,
Deep, deep, down

I will go,
Hoping there’s something, oh
Something there to cling to,
Oh, to cling to,
That’s not you- I will go
And you know I’m going…
Deep, deep, down

I will Go,
Hoping there’s something, oh
Something there to cling to,
Oh, to cling to,
That’s not you- I will go
Track Name: Pangs
When I left your place, at a quarter to three
My dear night had nothing left for me
Because I had hoped to keep you by my side
But I know that your heart ain’t right

Yeah- E, oh, you’ve got to know I see
Yeah-E, You don’t love me, You don’t love me
Because you don’t love
You don’t love me, You don’t love me
Because you don’t love

Let’s just kill, and erase all the memories of
Our beginning place, because I had hoped
To keep you by my side, though I know
That your heart ain’t right

Yeah- E, oh, you’ve got to know I see
Yeah-E, You don’t love me, You don’t love me
Because you don’t love
You don’t love me, You don’t love me
Because you don’t love

You don’t, you don’t love

Yeah- E, oh, you’ve got to know I see
Yeah-E, You don’t love me, You don’t love me
Because you don’t love
You don’t love me, You don’t love me
Because you don’t love

No, you won't- cause you can't.
Track Name: Cry For a Ghost
I’m reading your words on paper,
Upset my vision won’t blur,
Because I don’t feel that sting-
No I don’t, I won’t, feel a thing, thing
Oh, oh

And I’m stuck with the memories,
Images that bother me,
you dependent on the machines,
a shell of, what you used to be, be
Oh, oh

When I was young I didn’t have the heart
I knew the shell from the start,
Broken pieces in limbo,
Why am I still in guilt’s hold?
Oh, oh

Can I cry for a ghost?
Can I cry for a ghost?
Can I cry for a ghost?
Can I cry for a ghost?
Track Name: The SS
Loss of life, or a loss of skin,
Just close your doors and I won’t come in-
Joking babe, I’ll pick the locks, and run through your comp,
And check your stocks,

Because you always leave me dry [4x]

Creep me out, accept your veins,
Rushing through the maze, you’re closing doors again-
Your scent on me, wearing your favorite socks,
See your wallet’s empty but my pocket’s not

Cause you always leave me dry [4x]

Now I’ve gorged myself on your sacred locks,
Hairball’s got me hacking and it’s time to hock-

Take it back, please take it all,
Trust me babe nothing’s too small cause I
Don’t need yours I’ve got mine.
No I don’t need yours I’ve got mine, mine,

But you always leave me dry! [4x]
Oh, oh-oh, oh-oh
Track Name: Beat
Beat down, beat down, you’re here
I found the fire in a heartbeat rabbits find dear
I find that fire in a blood that just rinses clear,
Because when I beat down, beat down, you’re here!

And kicking, kicking, the horse
You never let up and my legs are tired, of course
I can’t believe we’re still holding out this neigh,
Why is it so important to say?

Oh-oh! I think there’s something you should
Know-oh! An opportunity to:
Grow-oh! But you’re moving too- slow-oh!

You try and try so hard
I can’t believe the last time that I fell this far
I can’t believe we’re still holding this neigh,
Why is it so important to stay?
Hey!

Oh-oh! I think there’s something you should
Know-oh! An opportunity to:
Grow-oh! But you’re moving too- slow-oh!

Oh-oh! Oh- oh! Oh-oh! [5x]

Oh, Well, I think there’s something you should
Know-oh!, An opportunity to:
Grow-oh! But you’re moving too- slow-oh!
Track Name: Passing Through You
Oh, my soul
Nothing to do that will lose this load,
Nothing to dig me up,
Buried by the fork in the road

Hello, Control
Welcome back this is your home,
Legends foretold, a soft song sold,
Beauty out cold

Help me, Sweet One,
Please come back don’t leave undone,
Keep me with your will, giving all until,
Until it’s all done

I gave you all,
Don’t come back this order’s tall
I’m trying to balance, before I fall,
No one I can call

But here’s what reigns true:
it ain’t my fault I can’t beat you,
this is your world, your turf, your zone
and I’m just passing through:

Passing through you
[2x]
Track Name: Brick By Brick
Oh-oh, oh-oh, oh-oh!

Oh, you’ll never know what you’ve taken from me
You claim nothing, but the world, it’s,
At your feet, a powerful dose
You have what I wanted the most

And it creeps down my back, it slides,
Down my spine, a terrifying reassurance
That I won’t be fine, but I will grow,
Hoping you reap what you sow

The end is nigh,
Never left behind,
The way it binds,
The way just love ain’t good enough,
And if I ain’t good enough,
Am I to be loved? Oh, Am I?

Oh, and you’ll never know what this was meant to mean,
You left all this, here in ruins, and you walk away clean,
A process slowed-
Did you care about it at all?

A process slowed,
A cruel dose,
I will grow,

Oh-oh, oh-oh, oh-oh

The end is nigh,
Never left behind,
The way it binds,
The way just love ain’t good enough,
And if I ain’t good enough,
Am I to be loved? Or, Am I But...

A process slowed,
A cruel dose,
I will grow,
Oh-oh, oh-oh, oh-oh

The end is nigh,
Never left behind,
The way it binds,
The way just love ain’t good enough,
And if I ain’t good enough,
Am I to be loved? Oh, Am I?
