Track Name: By the Fire
Hear me out, hear me shout
I'll wait for you, I'll fight for you
Watch me play, see my face
Bleached from medication abuse

Blocked by the fire, you're my desire
So wait for me, why don't you ever wait
Your impatience is wearing you out
Your soft lips wear me out anyway

I keep burning to the ground
I'm so chewed and spun out

I keep burning to the ground
I'm so chewed and spun out
Track Name: Red Sun
It's no better off with words unsaid
And pent up emotions stuck in my head
I wanna tell you something you don't want to hear
Let me drive you away from your fears
Leave me broken under your spell
All my secrets are yours to sell
Hypnotized by your lullabies
Cradlesong, come paralyze

Your song echoes through my heart
Red sun, take me back to the start

For such a long time you expect to fade
Live your life from my night to day
Socially distorted from your scene
Disappear from the in-between
Struck by lightning's violent song
Stars turn black when the lights turn on
Cracks are creaking among the walls
Wash away in waterfalls

Your song echoes through my heart
Red sun, take me back to the start

Your song echoes through my heart
Red sun, take me back to the start
Track Name: Puppy
You keep playing with my mind
Yeah, you do it all the time
I've been trying to get around
But all I do is let you down
Walk you home in the rain
Silly girl, you're such a pain
I'm your puppy and I'm used to it
C'mon, throw me a biscuit

I'll be waiting in the dark
Why are you such a bluff
Stop playing so hard
Puppy love's not enough

When you're done with this
You keep playing with my lips
I don't care if I'm just a friend
Cause I'm yours until the end
Try and lead me one way
But it always stays the same
Sugar girl, you're my fantasy
I'm a toy in your galaxy

I'll be waiting in the dark
Why are you such a bluff
Stop playing so hard
Puppy love's not enough

I'll be waiting in the dark
Why are you such a bluff
Stop playing so hard
Puppy love's not enough
Track Name: Sympathy
Distant from customary ways
My heart's shaped like a bomb, that's great
Shoot me before I run you down
My mind's an atomic waste of life
Abstracted by dead flies and blurred lines
Oh, just let me drown

I don't want to talk about it
I just want to carry on
I don't want to talk about it
I just want to carry on
I don't want to talk about it
I just want to carry on
I don't need your sympathy

Unorthodox beyond our eyes
The words they speak come out as lies
We're all just children to criticize
Is living social suicide
Poison me and take my kindness
Oh fix me into a surprise

I don't want to talk about it
I just want to carry on
I don't want to talk about it
I just want to carry on
I don't want to talk about it
I just want to carry on
I don't need your sympathy

I don't want to talk about it
I just want to carry on
I don't want to talk about it
I just want to carry on
I don't want to talk about it
I just want to carry on
I don't need your sympathy
Track Name: Goodbye Sunshine
Why do people have to be like this
I'm sick and tired taking all their shit
I ignore but there's so much more
It's like I'm their moral support

It's hard to see what's made of me
I don't know what I'm supposed to be
I don't know why she thinks I'm dim
She kinda hates who I've been

I'm not trying
More like dying
You want to see what's made of me
But don't you see that I'm incomplete
I'm not trying
I'm not trying

Give me a piece of your innocence
Your lips taste like cinnamon
I'm so dull from your ignorance
My ears bleed from our dissonance

I'm not trying
More like dying
You want to see what's made of me
But don't you see that I'm incomplete
I'm not trying
I'm not trying

I don't wanna go outside
I'm just looking for a place to hide
I just wanna die

I'm not trying
More like dying
You want to see what's made of me
But don't you see that I'm incomplete
I'm not trying
I'm not trying
Track Name: P.V.S.
It's the afternoon, I got my shrooms, my head's stuck in the skies
I'm sick of my addiction, your love's fiction when I'm high
My heart's becoming loose, as I'm strangled by your noose
Just so you know, I'm a fuck up for you

What about you and me
My heart's awake, but mind's asleep
Call me when you wake
Cause I got something to say

C'mon, give me some more
C'mon, give me some more

Procrastination via sedation, you're my elation
Destroy me for entertainment, and beat my imagination
Lover, you're not sweet, cause you're a sadist
Girl, you leave my heart so vacant

You don't care about me
You tell them I'm a sleaze
I wish I could feel no pain
Cause you make me go insane

C'mon, give me some more
C'mon, give me some more

C'mon, give me some more
C'mon, give me some more
Track Name: Trash Queen
Beauty turned into a trash queen
Just dead in the back seat
I know you're made of plastic
Don't doubt it, bury the hatchet
Oh how you've lied to my face
Oh no, I can't complain
Give up to leave you alone
Oh I'm a sinking stone

Take my life, so tragic
Corrode my tongue with acid
You're the one I adore
Take my life, so tragic
Corrode my tongue with acid
You're the one I adore

Your eyes mark my demise
I don't know if I'll survive
But you will live and learn
Of all the memories I've burned

Take my life, so tragic
Corrode my tongue with acid
You're the one I adore
Take my life, so tragic
Corrode my tongue with acid
You're the one I adore

Take my life, so tragic
Corrode my tongue with acid
You're the one I adore
Take my life, so tragic
Corrode my tongue with acid
You're the one I adore
Track Name: 3am
I've been living in my fantasies, behind the giant screen
Another castle in the wind, stargazing of what could've been
It's getting duller day by day, the passion is all a blur
I'd rather go back if I am only gonna be hurt

Why must I be me
I'd rather live in debauchery

Colours are flaring from white to pink, these trips are more serious
I don't want to be alone, but playing is dangerous
Sometimes I go too far, sometimes I'm just a freak
Sometimes I wonder where you are and wish you could be with me

Why must I be me
I'd rather live in debauchery
Why can't love be true
I know I gotta get to you
I know I gotta get to you
I know this love can't be true

And I wonder if I'll be here forever
Musing over the feel and the pain
You and I, we can stay here together
Oblivious in my brain

Why must I be me
I'd rather live in debauchery
Why can't I say no
C'mon, we can take it slow
Why can't love be true
I know I gotta get to you
I know I gotta get to you
I know I gotta get to you
Track Name: 626
Sail my friends, sail with me into the end
My dear, my fear, play with me till I say when
To stop, to retreat, you leave me in the nether
To rot, to die, with no love to tether

I realize, my own demise
That you lead me to
Am I blind? Are you really mine?
I wait my life for you

Revelation from a needle, are you evil or are you not
Am I caught in Arcadia, just tangled in a knot?
Can I take you home, all alone tonight?
It's nothing wrong, but nothing right, just let me take a bite

I realize, my own demise
That you lead me to
Am I blind? Are you really mine?
I wait my life for you

Feel so hollow, it's not enough to swallow your pride
Subside, visualize the rampant tide
No one's searching, slowly slip into the fade
My dear, my fear, please don't tell me you're going away

I realize, my own demise
That you lead me to
Am I blind? Are you really mine?
I wait my life for you
Track Name: Fade
Come outside, don't be shy
Flow out into the rain
Flow through my veins
Try to carry on, but there are thorns tied to my heart
I'm always out of line
Just someone left behind

We don't fade the way we want us to
We don't fade the way you want us to
I don't fade the way you want me to
You don't fade the way I want you to

I hope you don't mind
I'm dazed out of sight
Lay my head in your light
Hallucinations or reality
It's hard to keep my mind straight
Why don't we fade away

We don't fade the way we want us to
We don't fade the way you want us to
I don't fade the way you want me to
You don't fade the way I want you to

No I don't want to go
No I don't want to go
No I don't want to fade from your mind
No I don't want to go
No I don't want to go
Please don't fade away with him

We don't fade the way we want us to
We don't fade the way you want us to
I don't fade the way you want me to
You don't fade the way I want you to
