Track Name: Song 1
You opened your door, but you can't see me anymore...
until you look away

I won't be a liar
but my eyes can't see much higher
the table's at a standstill
so tired of all the talking
when less is less is less is less
and you blame your feet when you can't stop walking

open mouths, looking up so nothing comes out
but in my heart we'll find a million things that tear us apart
so come and watch the fallout

it's loose from cages
in different colors
we lives on pages looking nothing like the others

but I won't call you a liar
when your eyes can't see much higher

seen from space, everyone that we could replace
but in the end we'll find a million ways that we can pretend we're not all the same

I won't call you a liar when your eyes can't see much higher

they're in our hands
they're in our hearts
in here we won't be safe
in our clothes we won't be safe
in our hands we won't be safe
in our homes

when our eyes can't see...
when my eyes can't...
Track Name: Song 2
I found my queen, watch me kiss her filthy feet
a flashbulb sodomy
she'll peek through her veil of broken teeth
my head my heart, a shattered, strangled art
the fracture's where I'll start
you'll see some things you won't believe

I'm gone
I wait
I'll make my escape
I'm long gone
I'll take back
I'm right here
in black
I'm torn

careful, remember what we taught you
about speaking when you're spoken to
I'll sit, and sleepwalk, and lay down
by the swollen headlights on the street
you'll look down
I keep to myself every thought I think
and notice that when you are searching for me
you can't find me

I found my queen, watch me kiss her filthy feet
a shame mouth sodomy
she'll peek through her veil of broken teeth
Track Name: Song 3
crossing lines
our bodies combined
lost you out there
still down here on time

but now it's too late to change anything
now take that last step out of this town
we're grown in the ground
it's too late to stop...

just sit still, you're breaking my fall
downhill, can't remember at all your reason for this courtesy call
I'll be found in a place where no one's around
where the cracks in the floor can't swim
and we might as well drown

let me stop you right where you are standing
let me show you what you are missing
you know what it's about
my head, my chest, are hollowed out
Track Name: Song 4
...in this room I cant sleep
...in this room I don't believe
Track Name: Song 5
empty room, our loneliness holds me so still
and drowns me in black teeth

a painted lighthouse, you sent your signals too late
a fallen comrade, we'll leave your cinders in place
assembly line off-ramps flying overhead
there's nothing on the walls and space between my sheets
I'm a human landfill singing softly as I take everything that I need
call to arms and bleed me, lose this poison

I'm alone, can't find my home
my head is on a swivel arm
a scraping sound
not one of us can still be found

our empty room
our loneliness holds me so still
and drowns me in hell

I'm alone, can't find my home
Track Name: Song 6
still not here yet
broken ladders climbing over
heads they can't find
be careful to turn down the lights
when they are outside
so they can't see us hide

a picture frame can't contain
all the ways you look at me

still not here yet
broken fingers touching all our
hands we can't find
we're pulling you down inside
the hole in your mind
we'll swallow you alive

picture frames, sterile hearts
set your hearts into lines
born and traded at the cost
living in the empty time
you're flirting with the enemy
you're flirting with the enemy
you don't know what they've done to me
you don't know what they've done to me
you don't know why
