Track Name: america
Innocence crushed underfoot
You lied
There was no truth to it
Our childhood’s a bust
You teach us
Life…Love…Liberty
But only if you obey me
The same ugly rut

Sunday’s for show
Monday’s a drag
Money’s your god
It’s all you have

I’m bound & gagged
Can’t be discreet
I’ve moused around
I’m duty-bound
I can’t do this anymore
Won’t be your virgin
Won’t be your whore
I’ve played this game
I know the score
Well…you’re the man
And I’m bored


Sunday’s for show
Monday’s a drag
Money’s your god
It’s all you have

I see through your lies
You’re everything I despise

Guns and drugs and apple pie
Force-fed to us
Throughout our lives
Lock your step boys
Back of the line
We’re cropped and boxed
And locked down tight
The only exit…suicide
Bite the bullet
Have some pride

Sunday’s for show
Monday’s a drag
Money’s your god
It’s all you have

I see through your lies
You’re everything I despise
Track Name: here i am
Are you afraid
To fall in love
Are you afraid

Here I am
Just talk to me
Here I am
Just be with me
Here I am

Do you think
That love’s a rut
That ties you up
In wicked knots
I’m afraid
I’ve said too much
I’m afraid
To feel at all

Here I am
Just talk to me
Here I am
Just be with me
Here I am

Are you beginning to fall

How obscene
To want someone
To hold your hand
To come undone
To make you scream
To make you sigh
To make you laugh
You make me cry

Here I am
Just talk to me
Here I am
Just be with me
Here I am

Are you beginning to fall

Here I am
Just talk to me
Here I am
Just be with me
Here I am
Just talk to me
Track Name: push
I won’t disappear
I won’t drown
I’ll be the little gun
That shoots you down
You tried to shut me up
Push, push me down
I’ll send a little kiss
With every round

Cause I can’t be wasting my time
On fools
Who just cross every line

You broke my heart
It fell away
You dug it up
Most every day
I tried…I tried
To keep it safe
But you always
Found it again

I can’t see why
You wanna be that way
I can’t see why
You’ve gotta be that way

I won’t disappear
I won’t drown
I’ll be the little gun
That shoots you down
You tried to shut me up
Push, push me down
Push, push me down
Push, push me down

But I’m gone
I’m out of here
I’m on my way
I’m done
I’m out of here
I’m done
Track Name: alexander
Some days
Seem to last forever
Some days
Seem to drag
All my dreams seem to be
Fair-weather friends
In the end
They’re all gone

I’ve weighed
All my faults
Against tomorrow
Tethered
All my hopes
To after this
To when I’m finished
To a day
That never comes

All my life’s
Been a grandiose tomorrow
That exists
Within the hollow
Hollow…hollow
Of my eyes

Mister
Mister Alexander Calder
Nevelson…Akhmatova
Too busy
To get tangled
Tangled up in dreams
Too busy
To get tangled
Up in dreams

Please are we done

Sometimes, I think TV
Is just a snare
For you and me
An empty box
To lock us up
To hold us down
To train us
Not to look around

Please…are we done
My favorite show is on
Track Name: gone
Take another step
Toward me
And I’ll pretend
That I don’t see
‘Cause all I’ve done
Is lie to you
Out with the old
In with the black & blue

Cross my heart
I know you’ll try
To twist this up
Now don’t you cry
‘Cause all I’ve done
Is lie to you
Out with the old
In with the black & blue

‘Cause now you’re gone
And nothing’s wrong

Take another step
Toward me
And I’ll pretend
That I don’t see
‘Cause all I’ve done
Is lie to you
All I’ve done is lie

‘Cause now you’re gone
And nothing’s wrong

Come out
Come down from your cloud
Not a sound
Pick your hearts
Up off the ground

Come out
Come down from your cloud
I’m sorry…
I’m sorry
Track Name: diadem
My life’s a bitter wind
Choked through with diadem
Bad luck’s a good
Good friend of mine
I have wounds
I have wings
Oh such bright happy things
To learn…to love…
To lose…is all…

If I stumble
If I fall
Don’t mind me
I’ll get up

This cage
This snare of print
It was no accident
I wove each knot
With your disdain
Monsoons of blessed ink
Drown me
Drown me
Drown me
Drown me…‘til I can’t think

If I stumble
If I fall
Don’t mind me
I’ll get up

Don’t mind me
I’ll get up
Track Name: gonna die
Death
Comes creeping along, dear
Death
Comes rumbling ahead
You’ve so much time
In the barrel
Till the hammer
Hits the pin

Some
They drown on liquor
Some wage every sin
Some just keep on prayin’
Till that old man
He steps in

It’s digging holes
In the ground, dear
Hoping
To see the sky
Another payday’s
No pay back
For the years
As they roll by

Some
They drown on liquor
Some wage every sin
Some just keep on prayin’
Till that old man
He steps in

I’ve been feeding
The wrong dreams
I’ve been blinder
Than blind
One foot
Set in the grave, dear
The other’s
Set on a mine
Track Name: tow
Wasted on me
Waste all your time
On me
And I’ll tow you
Back & forth
Back & forth

What’s yours is mine
You say all the time
You don’t own me
Can’t buy me up
Buy my love

Break your silence
So-called friend
I’ve given
Everything I can
I love you more
Than I can say
But I don’t love you much
Today…not today
You’ve made your
One last, final mistake
Push me and I’ll pull
Drag me under
If you will
‘Cause you’re only
Drowning yourself

Break your silence
So-called friend
I’ve given everything I can
I love you more
Than I can say
But I don’t love you much
Today
Track Name: hollow eyed
Kiss me…hold me
Coax me…into you
Grey clouds rain tears
Like a cyclops’ choir
And all I can hope
To aspire…to be

An angel
With a broken wing
A hollow-eyed little girl
An angel
With a broken wing
A lost face in the crowd

I’ve used my body, yes
But some of my soul
Come undressed
It hung
Like a torn breast
This part of my soul
Came undressed

Look deep
Into my well
I’ve hidden
Such sorrow there
Tell me
I look beautiful
Tell me
I look scared

I’ve tried
To let you know
All of the fears
I’m afraid to show
I’ve tried to let you be
All you could be
Without me

Tell me
I look beautiful
Tell me
I look scared

I’ve tried to let you be
Track Name: satellite
Oh satellite
Oh satellite
You don’t know
You don’t know me

Got a black tongue
Got a mad soul
Got a cripple heart
The size of Texas

I’ve been a rube
I’ve been conned
Felt so alone
I felt like dying

Who do you see
When you see me
I’m not naïve
I keep on trying
Who do you see
Who do you see
I’m not naïve
I keep on trying

Oh satellite
Oh satellite
You don’t know
You don’t know me

Got a black tongue
Got a mad soul
Got a cripple heart
The size of Texas
Track Name: alcohol
You fall into a state of grace
You don’t know who
Or where you’ve been
The ground reached up
To kiss your face
Best friend
You’ve had all evening

Alcohol
It’s just a friend of mine

It cuts me right to the bone
Cuts to the quick
Yet lovely numb
My worries fall to the floor
I’ll join them
When there’s no more

Alcohol
It’s just a friend of mine

Sometimes you fall to your knees
As if a saint’s ecstasy
And then the fog
It rolls in
And you’re lost once again

We stumble…maybe we fall
We don’t care
If we get home at all
I got my friends
To see me through
To kick my ass
Right out of blue

Alcohol
It’s just a friend of mine

Prayers just don’t reach
The proper ears
Too much religion’s
Based on fear
I’ll build a temple of glass
To shore me up
Against the past

Alcohol
It’s just a friend of mine

Sometimes
You fall to your knees
As if a saint’s ecstasy
And then the fog
It rolls in
And you’re lost once again

Alcohol
It’s just a friend of mine
