Track Name: Lookout!
Lookout!
Shit off a mountainside
Light is harsh I shield my eyes
My stallion by my side
Frozen wind up my behind
I struggle to decide
Off this peak which way to ride
If I was to slide
To my death off this incline

Get over me

I'm so afraid of distractions
Each breath now might be my last
I want to live this with passion
So kill me if the best has past
Don't want to sleep with a memory
Of fading dreams and wished for things
I'm only happy I'm breathing
In this moment here so let me be

Get over me

Do I so sing with my body
Cause I don't feel like I did before
When you dance with me
Track Name: Hollywood Buyout
Hollywood Buyout
On a fire escape in a nameless place
Stories of my past passing through the wind
Somehow lost and washed of pride
It's so cold but I'll stay outside
I can't reset myself I gotta make it real
The world deranges
your old friends are new strangers

At times life goes to shit we all know
You get pushed down you can't get up
Stare into the dark unaware
Of why you're alive and why you care
But you can lean on me anyday

You say you're facing a wall
You say we don't agree
You don't see your life as you want it to be
And you're so so slow letting go go go
You want to hold me back
I want to make it real
The world deranges
Your old friends are new strangers
Track Name: Heartbreaker
Heartbreaker
Wherever you've been
Where your from will only get you so far
Supreme boredom
The future's not yours to see
The sun is laughing in the lines
Round your eyes
You get over and over time

But I wait for no man to catch me

In all the promises I couldn't keep
They're buzzing above me as you try to sleep
Won't wake me up won't wake me up
There'll be no sentimental landslide
No brisk euphoria to cool your mind
Nothing will wake me up
And all those promises I couldn't keep
They're buzzing like flies above me while I sleep
Won't wake me up

You try to explain it was all in your mind
When you knew I was a heartbreaker

All you ever wanted I severed or never needed such a heartbreaker
All I ever wanted I settled on never needing
Such a heartbreaker
Track Name: All You Have To Say
All You Have To Say
I feel nothing the distance persistent
I get so far out of my mind
When I needed you and I wanted you to know it
That's all you have to say
That it gives me something

You seem distant
I call you I'm talking
But your not listening to a word I say
When I needed you and I wanted you to know it
That's all you have to say
That it gives me something

But I don't need anything
I don't need you to know you were someone
Something that I used to spin my world around
Now you're barely in it as someone who feels it

That's all you have to say
That it gives me something
That the world keeps turning
And it won't be long now
Track Name: Forever Underfoot
Forever Underfoot
You're a ghost you
You can't release yourself from the marching congress up above
In your casket with the bugs
But what is real
When you hold it in your chest
Could you picture yourself living once again

What is life what is a beating in your heart
What has passed and what is memory
Where's a decent place to start
Cause all you ever wanted was a spook to make a person hesitate before they walked away

Go on and dream of every basic need that makes a human being
Hold their sadness in your hands
Cause all you ever wanted was a spook to make a person hesitate before they walked away

You're living forever underfoot of life
I can't be forever underfoot of life

Tell me what you did to make the time stand still like that
Track Name: Visitations (Dookie)
Visitations
I may need you cause I can't seem to disarm this machine who took me away
I was channel surfing when through the curtains
Blue lights cast in it was watching me
I'm still too afraid to say it but it taught me it showed me everything
I may need you cause I can't seem to disarm this machine who took me away

Even now when I'm in my home I'm still so far away
Even now when I'm in my house...
Even now when I'm in my room...
Even now when I'm in my bed...
Even now when it's in my head...
Track Name: Tangerines
Tangerines
Lately I'm existing with my eyes closed
Wake up walk around then go back to bed
Living in my head
The world around me's a kaleidoscope
It's a dreaming world
I don't mind living with my eyes closed anymore

Tempt me with your tangerines
Sour and sweet each little thing has everybody always watching
Burdened to my eyes
And everybody's always watching
Temperance is different if it makes no sense
And everybody's always watching me
Try and fail

Lying in my bed I am drifting softly sinking
Haze of the incense warm and citrus
Crisp and curling
Draw me from my days warn me gently this is not me
Living my new life like a specter fading specter
Track Name: Into The Fire
Into the Fire
Honestly there's nothing left you catch my drift
Like a child with a toy i got bored with it
It gets old it gets easier to lose control
But if I wanted you to know I'd have told you so

I'm running into the fire
I'm getting high on the fire
Burning off my mind

Let's talk about sex let's talk about the weather
Let's tear apart the ones we love then stitch them back together
Cause when you gamble with a heart you won some and you lose some
But the manner which you chose serves only to confuse them
Track Name: Bleached Out For Nothing
Bleached Out for Nothin'
It's been some days since you've been gone
When the smoke had cleared the fire shown
that the violence in my only seems to grow
with no fear of God in my soul
Somebody says to me no philosophy will land you in your feet and we'll all be running soon

Your simple pleasures were took away
like the candid words that you used to say
Well you broke my heart
and I'll never forgive you
Your mystery stood for years but was laid to rest into pearls of tears and we'll all be running soon

Face down for bleached out for nothin' and no one at all
When I'm looking back it seems we'll never learn our lessons
Every misery you endured was lifted into the sun still somehow it felt like I died by your side

How long will you be gone
How long will we be gone
How long will I be gone

Cause you're in my blood
That's why I cant leave you alone
You're in my blood
