Track Name: Monsters
I remember the first time we spoke, we swam in cigarette smoke, now your voice lingers, from the back of my head to the tip of my fingers.
I remember a subtle foreplay, the exchanging of names, now we're tangled, like a necklace left too long in the junk drawer.
I am modest and I am calm I only speak when spoken to and not for long, but you, yeah you navigate through black and grey, you say your want to stay but I don't want you to stay.
I think it's time for a conversation, a romantic argument to end this vacation, but I'm not ready.
Spin it around and around and around we go.
I remember a colorful display, just above my bed, and then a sharp pain, this is where things change.
Then there was such a sudden silence, a drop in decibels, I start screaming, how loud do I scream till I scare off my demons.
Spin it around and around and around we go.
Track Name: Medicate
Don't know if this thing will hold my weight, guess I'm gonna have to try to find out, if not just for curiosity, then for the fact the it kills and that sounds nice.
Tonight, I'll sneak away to some created place and tie my neck tight, alright, what a fantastic way to clear my mind.
I feel the ache to medicate, can't take this pain, this constant sustaining wall of white noise.
The sun bleeds through the blinds so I know that it's time to rise.
Still nothing can make me move I've got no devotion, no desire.
But what keeps me intact is just the feeling and the fact that I could find my way back.
Now the waters getting cold, either I do it or I don't.
If you need me, you can find me, I'll be hanging off the shower curtain rod.
I feel the ache to medicate, can't take this pain, this constant sustaining wall of white noise.
If I, could just feel fine, I feel defeated, I can't defeat it.
I feel the ache to medicate, can't take this pain, this constant sustaining wall of white noise.
Track Name: At Night and in the Rain
There's nothing left, no words, no sentiments, just copied quotations and coughing fits.
So I drive at night to occupy some time, if I'm kept quiet, I'm kept in line.
But how could I be, by myself see, I've got this thing for pain.
So I'll stay tipsy, drunken and dizzy, at night and in the rain.
I'll lie on the ground and spin my favorite records around, until I'm wide awake and it's morning.
I've lost control, but god it feels incredible, if you tear the skin do you break the bone.
The more I take, the more I push away, what a brilliant idea, a sweet escape.
You should see the look in my eyes when I mean it, could you help me with my secret disguise I've been meaning, to get rid of, help me dig the old one up.
I'll lie on the ground and spin my favorite records around, until I'm wide awake and it's morning.
I've lost control, but god it feels incredible, if you tear the skin do you break the bone.
You may already be dreaming, thought you saw light behind a windowsill, coming from a basement on the hill.
Track Name: Watch
I don't want to sit back and watch my life run away from me.
I don't want to lay down my guns and become friends with the enemy.
So could someone stop the stirring inside my head, this voice is telling me, to let it all go.
I catch a break, a glimpse of innocence, and try to hold it down.
Swallow it with my mouth, let it take over and bail me out.
It leaves me just as fast, just like some old friend from the past and I am left here wondering.
Should I let it all go, I don't need it anyways, I don't know.
I'll let it all go, throw it all away, I don't know.
I don't want to sit back and watch my life run away from me.
Color, bleeding through to a new page, blotting my black and whites, staining my wooden frames.
I feel just like a kid again.
I feel I've regained my innocence.
