Stillborn 01:39
i am the joker and i am the fool for ever lending my soul to you delicate meat stuck between your teeth i'm getting to know your cavities the size of a galaxy follow a breadcrumb trail to the end for a clue to what's become silence that lives in the worst case scenario oh, it explains the still tongue now i see where you're coming from but now i know what love can really be it makes you smile and punches out your teeth am i dreaming? am i dreaming? am i dreaming?

If and When 04:13
you make it look so easy the most spectacular inhuman feat threading yourself through mind and flesh letting the spool roll across from the east to west so if and when you see me again, well open my chest, and finish what's left you switched a light my heart had not seen then shaved a few years off my growth as a human being unrecognizable to myself, to my friends to the guitar i had written your love songs with so let's get to the heart of the question will you see me again? will you let me in? did you love me? or was i destined to be part of your rites? the annual feast you'll do it again someone new for your entertainment and when it's all through i recommend that if and when you see them again, well open their chest and finish what's left yeah, if and when you see me again, well open my chest and finish what's left

Christobel 03:41
When the moment arrives You know I will be waiting Kicking into survival The seas of life divide It might seem to appear That I am dead already I left it all on the ground At your feet Yes Christobel (gone away) Christobel (gone away) Why won''t you just fall in love With me? Christobel (gone away) Let the temperature rise The birds of prey are mating And with you by my side The instinct is alive It might seem to appear That I am dead already I left all at your feet On the ground Before I died Yes Christobel (gone away) Christobel (gone away) Why won''t you just fall in love With me? Christobel (gone away) Yes Christobel (gone away) Christobel (gone away) Why won''t you just fall in love With me? Christobel (gone away)

queen of convenience lives in a dream drives a red pickup, steel submarine light as a feather, float in the sweet breeze but she operates like some heavy machine my predictions, biggest fears realized in fall this year chewed me up and swallow whole so she can laugh, and smile, and wield her total control like some heavy machine like some heavy machine like some heavy machine like some heavy machine

Set Gently 02:22
outside your window she passes by for the last time she's going, and you know it nothing you can say will make a difference she's already made up her heart great plan for departure so set gently my brother and you will last so much longer as you long for her and how it was cave in, cave out and tear out all of the pages since this time last year avoid the mirror where you see her there standing right beside you should have taken that picture so set gently my brother and you will last so much longer as you long for her and how it was
