Track Name: The Beginning
compassion's all I brought got.
you wanted more, I thought.
ex wives swimming in the dark tides with her.
congratulations, friend.
your heart is broke again.
would this have happened if we had just stayed home?
I will sink away with you.

I think we're under siege.
their eyes are cocked so slightly.
their suits and ties don't hide their tiger stripes.
just hold your bloody heart,
inside your lover's scarf.
pressed suits and champagne hiding lion's mane.
we should have stayed home this time.

kill all your friends while you can.

jump through hopes, not breathing
I was so misleading.
kill your friends and neighbors while you can.

compassion's all I've got.
you wanted more, I thought.
ex wives swimming in the dark tides with her.
congratulations, friend.
your heart is broke again.
would this have happened if we had just stayed home?

kill all your friends while you can.
(I love those misunderstandings.)
Track Name: Christina
Those arms like snakes.
the sounds you make.
"I'd blow this bridge up for anyone."
My footprints aren't where they're supposed to be.
They're twenty miles away from where I thought I was.

Our cover is blown.
our minds are too.
"I'm glad I'm sharing this with you."
God, you've misstepped,
One foot in front of the other.
it doesn't work that way this time.
I think I've lost my mind.

This white is turning to red.
You've got to love me through all of this.
This white is turning to red.

That sight worth seen.
your high-pitched scream,
I couldn't love you any more.
Don't not look now,
One foot in front of the other.
It's going to work this time, I swear.
I know we lost our minds.

This white is turning to red.
You've got to love me through all of this.
This white is turning to red.

I know that i'd come through contagiously askew.
I think I let you down.
I hope that I'd come through.
your eyes weren't always blue.
I think I let you down.
Track Name: There Are Monsters
I wasn't hard-pressed to reclaim the spot I gave.
I'm not your flame.

You're not gonna eat me alive.

In hindsight I don't think this worked.
your body is cold and I'm just hurt.

You're not gonna eat me alive.

Your heavy crown: I like it too.
Don't call on me.
Track Name: Virginia
You were scared shitless when I talked to you,
earlier in the day.
your brother wishes you the best,
despite all of his dismay.

It wasn't free then,
but you caught your hand in it anyway.
It's not your problem.
lips are sewn shut, but what's to say?

You both looked better when I met with you,
later on in the day.
We all were quiet, slightly awkward too.
We've been such a long way.

It wasn't free then,
but you caught your hand in it anyway.
It's not your problem.
lips are sewn shut, but what's to say?

It wasn't that hard just to leave it be.
and now my mouth is dry, my palms sweaty.

I was feeling nicer in the morning, face down on the floor.
I could smell the smoke and there's a pounding on the bathroom door.
I was barely breathing when the thought of you came in my head.
I could almost taste you and I knew I would rather be dead.
I'm not going to leave this place alive.

We got up, we left that damned room.
heads on straight, but more slightly askew.
reassured, we'll leave this place alive.
Track Name: Dallas
Keep it in the family while you can.
your father loves his new wife, what a man.
you try so hard to not be overt.
don't smile so hard your face hurts.

Keep it in the family while you can.
you never want to be the leading man.
your lover lies and you feel ok.
too bad it's not your seventh day.

In spite of who we try to be,
I'll shoot down everything for free.

Track Name: Spaced
Inside I waited for,
a chance at misdirection,
I would ignore.
genius minds can't complain.
she loved him from the get go,
I'll abstain.

What did I tell you?
don't go out at night.
this town is translucent.
God, I know I'm right.
dreams are made here so,
take off your shirt and smile for me.
your ambition came at a price.

Try it from miles away.
this dreamer can't be bought.
new noise and brittle bones,
I should be enough.

Track Name: Blood Suckers
I've got empires to lead.
she's got vampires to feed.
you don't miss me any more than I miss you.

I think I like you,
I don't want to share.
let's kill your husband,
and make you an heir.

Twice now, I've been deceived.
she saw explosions in me.
I don't really mind who sees me,
just close my eyes.

Congratulations
glad I was here.
thank God I'm beside you,
to keep your head clear.

Let's dine on his insides.
I like the way you pretend to repeat everything that I say.
I like your bloodlines.
It's so fantastic to feel your hands reaching and grasping for mine.

I told you that my blood would surely freeze,
it's colder than you all think it is.
I came closer to God than I have been in years and years.
I love you too.

I've got empires to lead,
and she's got vampires to feed.
you don't miss me any more than I miss you.
Track Name: Nineteen Ninety-Three
Missed that screen above your head.
don't wake my father,
I'm here in his stead.
this place is up-side-down,
my sister is in the ground.
my God, I know she's where she's supposed to be.

Where were you in nineteen ninety-three?
I just needed somebody to disagree.
this place is up-side-down.
there are matches on the ground.
oh, God, we're not where we're supposed to be.

Are you frightened at all of me?
I like the way that you look at me.
sweetly.
you're the reason why I drag this out.
I liked it better now knowing where you were from.

I looked around.
take it back.
You walked inside.
get out of here.

Missed that screen above your heard.
don't wake my father,
I'm here in his stead.

this place is up-side-down.
there are matches on the ground.
oh, God, we're not where we're supposed to be.

Track Name: Horror Story
We've got a little setback.
I know we've got it good.
Its not harder with your family,
I think that you're misunderstood.

I know this house is haunted,
because I miss you too much.
you were so convenient for me.

I've got a picture in my wallet,
of the way we used to look.
Our faces weren't so bored then.
I think a smile was all it took.

If this house was haunted,
with the ghost of you,
that would be convenient for me.

You're looking mighty bold,
that color is nice on you,
don't stop unless I ask to.
you've got a little bit of blood on your lips.
not as much as what was on my hands.
just give her one last kiss.

It's all ready when you are.
the house that you grew up in,
before you were a star.
now we're all covered in crimson.
and we're all out of gold.

You're looking mighty bold,
that color is nice on you,
don't stop unless I ask to.
you've got a little bit of blood on your lips.
not as much as what was on my hands.
just give her one last kiss.
Track Name: Home, Finally
Watch the camera.
I told you that I think outside the box.
watch the camera.
don't tell me that you'd like me better then.
back then.

Pretty picture, what's the plan?
let's save our money and beat the man.
oh, God, my sides are burning,
I'm terrified that I'll keep returning.
let's not think outside the box.

It's probably pretty cloudy in your head.
