Track Name: Gone
It's an addiction I'm such an idiot
Everything I needed was right in my grip
As the ice melts away creatures come out to play
Take that switchblade stare, sweetie stick it this way

If I could (if I could) go back in time
If I could hit rewind
I'd make you, make you mine
Do it right, do you right

I'm on a mission for self-destruction
On a vacation, yeah sedated for a while
As the ice melts away creatures come out to pray that it stays like this
A blue sky and sun-lit kiss

If I could (if I could) go back in time
If I could hit rewind
I'd make you, make you mine
Do it right, do you right

You don't know you've got 'til it's up and gone

If I could (if I could) go back in time
If I could hit rewind
I'd make you, make you mine
Do it right, do you right

You don't know you've got 'til it's up and gone
Track Name: Falling Hard
Brain dripping out of our skulls
There's no right or wrong
'Cause where we are, yeah nothing matters
Not at all

We're falling, we're falling hard
Don't pick us up, let us rot in love
If you're falling, oh then fall into me now

Let's burn all of our clothes and get tangled up (and get tangled up)
'Cause how you feel, there's nothing else I want to know

We're falling, we're falling hard
Don't pick us up, let us rot in love
If you're falling, oh then fall into me now

Fall into me

Make me numb, make me come, make me disappear
If I'm even here and I'm not (I'm not)
Make numb, give me some, give me what you've got
Like it's what you're for, all I want..

Brain dripping out of our skulls
There's no right or wrong
'Cause where we are, yeah nothing matters
Not at all
Track Name: Doomsday Party
Make me forget my own name
Dance with me real slowly
Whisper a sweet something that I'll take to my grave with a smile

'Cause we're all gonna die
We might as well, might as well survive
Why do that to ourselves?
'Cause we're all gonna die
We might as well, might as well get high
Let's do that, let's do that

Well you taste salty-sweet
Your eyes are dilated
If my head's a locket I'll keep you safe there like a snap shot
You ignite a spark in me that catches fast like gasoline
It burns in shades of autumn leaves
Promise not to put me out 'til I take the world down with me

'Cause we're all gonna die
We might as well, might as well survive
Why do that to ourselves?
'Cause we're all gonna die
We might as well, might as well get high
Let's do that, let's do that
Track Name: Passed Out On The Ceiling
Was working at the bar pouring her Fireball
We hit it off, took my number like a shot
She said she goes to Kent
I said "We play there next, come to the show we'll get turned up."

I know girls like you like the back of my hand
(They were severed long ago)
I know you like the sunrise
(I haven't, haven't seen one in some time)
Been sleeping in passed out on the ceiling

Yeah she was M.I.A., said "Come drink wine at my place"
We smoked pot from an elephant
Watched "I Love You Man", played with with her rats
My car was almost towed
I watched her hula hoop then she said "Come upstairs"
The next morning was smoothies in bed

I know girls like you like the back of my hand
(They were severed long ago)
I know you like the sunrise
(I haven't, haven't seen one in some time)
Been sleeping in passed out on the ceiling

Yeah you've been circling me like that hula hoop
I wish I knew what you were thinking
Track Name: Apathetica
I'm going down for everything I've ever done
I'm going down as good as gone
I'm losing faith in everything and everyone
Prove me wrong

'Cause I, I, I don't care
I, I don't care
I, I don't care, all I have is time to kill
I, I don't care
I, I don't care
I, I don't care, everyday's whatever so..

And everything you heard about me is true
All the good the bad and worse
I'm a diamond in the roughest part of town
There on the ground

'Cause I, I, I don't care
I, I don't care
I, I don't care, all I have is time to kill
I, I don't care
I, I don't care
I, I don't care, everyday's whatever so..

Everything I've ever done's all for you, I swear
I look in the mirror, all I see is silver and air and whisper..

As apathetic as Cleveland weather
Track Name: May 23
I'm bad luck
I shook the latter you fell off of
Black cat
I'm the crack you stepped on that broke your mother's back

There's nothing to do
Since May twenty-third it's all been down hill
Been falling head first into hell
It doesn't get better than, any better than this
No it doesn't get better than, any better than this
But it's all, but it's all good
Yeah it's all good, whatever works

I'm back luck
I broke mirrors and promises
Your touch with hope could maybe break this lifelong curse

There's nothing to do
Since May twenty-third it's all been down hill
Been falling head first into hell

I'm bad luck
I spilt the last of your salt
Well I learned to live one step behind feeling alright

'Cause it doesn't get better than, any better than this
No it doesn't get better than, any better than this
Whatever works
Track Name: Shine
I've got some tongues to tie, faces to rearrange
Got some bodies to hide someplace they'll never find
It's my, my time to shine

The light, so bright as I take my place as sacrifice

Heaven's no place for me
You've got some hell to pay
My lips are all locked up
Choked swallowing the key
It's my, my time to shine

The light, so bright as I take my place on the sacrificial stage
I'll sing my silent heart out and spill my guts 'til half-empty

This is the American dream
This is the land of the free
As free as rats in a maze
We're just slaves too cool for the chains
We're too cool

The light, so bright as I take my place on the sacrificial stage
I'll sing my silent heart out and spill my guts 'til half-empty
And spill my guts 'til half..
Track Name: Dead End Memory Lane
Time's always running passed me like I'm standing still
The last thirty years I barely remember
All the shows and girls and crazy-pills I took
All the lies to make my life seem less like shit

I swear to hell I can't remember
I heard from her it's for the better
I swear to hell I can't recall
I guess it's for the better

All the names and faces are a blur like smeared eyeliner
The scars I sport keep me up late (I'll sleep when I'm born)
I don't do drugs, the drugs do me
I don't smoke, I'm trying to start and here's a lighter

I swear to hell I can't remember
I heard from her it's for the better
I swear to hell I can't recall
I guess it's for the better

'Cause nothing's wrong if you stay numb
There's no tragedy if you stay high above the trees, above everything

I swear to hell I can't remember
I guess it's for the better
