Track Name: Die In A Fire
In answer to your letter
You might die in a fire
They promise it gets better
But what if they're a liar?

What if nobody loves you?
Will you curl up and die?
What if it never stops raining?
What if it never rains again?

Nothing is forever
Not the ocean or the sea
Not your friends and lovers
Not your enemies

When will it get better?
When will it get worse?
What if the answer's never?
What if you've been cursed?
When will it get better?
When will it get worse?
Should you check the weather?
Should you call a hearse?

One thing is certain
Nothing is here to stay
No matter how bad it's hurting
Even the stars go away

What if nobody loves you?
Will you curl up and die?
What if it never stops raining?
What if it never rains again?

When will it get better?
When will it get worse?
What if the answer's never?
What if you've been cursed?
When will it get better?
When will it get worse?
Should you check the weather?
Should you call a hearse?
Track Name: Ugly Duckling
How did you figure it all out?
You seem to know everything I don't
I think you have an inside source
Who speaks to you
But when I ask he won't

Sometimes I'm on the verge of screaming
My head off in a public place
But you look at me so strangely
Stop and stare and save it all
For a rainy day

I can't walk down the goddamn hall
I can't raise my fucking hand to speak
I can't eat my lunch in peace
I can't beat my head against the wall

I just can't I just can't ask
The questions piling up in heaps
I just can't I just can't get
Inside the ring with you
You play for keeps

Like I don't need one kind glance
Like I don't need just one word
Outside the books I huddle under
Trying to pretend I haven't heard

Did the devil take his toll
Could you really have a soul?

I can't walk down the goddamn hall
I can't raise my fucking hand to speak
I can't eat my lunch in peace
I can't beat my head against the wall

I want to know what you know
I want to have what you have
I want to hold my head high
I want to walk without fear
Track Name: Alien
from outer reaches unimagined by the men
who make a habit out of dreaming of an end
to unknown things

lost and abandoned in his own mind
like a kind of elder statesman
stated once upon a time as he lay in bed

it's a lazy day a sunny day we're waiting for you
to keep the hope alive
don't you know
you've gotta keep your limitations at bay
or they'll eat you up, they'll eat you up

alive and kicking I hear everybody screaming
they think the war is over but it's only just beginning
got a lotta bombs we're dropping one and one after another
and wait wait wait for the calm to descend

live your own life silver spoon
don't be led by the old man on the wall
in the room where you lay your head

it's a lazy day a sunny day we're waiting for you
to keep the hope alive
don't you know
you've gotta keep your limitations at bay
or they'll eat you up, they'll eat the world

alive and kicking I hear everybody screaming
they think the war is over but it's only just beginning
got a lotta bombs we're dropping one and one after another
we just wait wait wait for the end

to fall
on our knees
to pray as we please
there's no time to lose

live your own life silver spoon
don't be led by the old man on the wall
in the room where you lay your head
Track Name: Locked Box
You were born to rip and tear
Breaking hearts without a care
I spilled my guts to you
I told you the truth
But you weren’t even there

Is this what I deserve?
Won’t you grade me on a curve
I almost made a move
I’m so afraid to lose
I always lose my nerve

The screw has just been turned
Everything that wouldn’t burn
I put each memory
In a big locked box
And threw away the key

I don’t know how to please you
I just don’t know what you want from me
Your thick skull’s hard to see through
If I could get past your apathy

There’s no way to save face
Now you’re gone without a trace
I think I’m in love
But you’re not one of
The fucking human race

The screw has just been turned
Everything that wouldn’t burn
I put each memory
In a big locked box
And threw away the key
Track Name: Asphyxiation
Baby I’m open to it
Anything you want me to be
No I don’t think you blew it
I want you to be with me

Take a chance, take a deep breath
I’ll meet you in the place between
A holy trance and a cigarette
I’m already on my knees

Honey I know we can do it
How can I get you to see?
No I don’t think we’re through it
I want you to be free

Take a chance, take a deep breath
I’ll meet you in the place between
A holy trance and a cigarette
I’m already on my knees
When my eyesight fades
I have no words to say
Hung on the edge of the night

There are crowds of shades
Begging me to stay
“Come with us into the light.”

Take a chance, take a deep breath
I’ll meet you in the place between
A holy trance and a cigarette
I’m already on my knees
Track Name: Lovely Lover
Lovely lover, what if I told you that there's no other?
Would you have a heart attack?
Or would you be the girl of my dreams?
Could you even know what that means, lovely lover?

And I'm so sincere when you're far away
That it hurts so bad my soul, it aches
Your stare into me never fades away
I was weak before, but you made me brave

My friends said I should wait on this
But I've been waiting so long
My hand is yours to take
My heart is yours to break
So what do you say?

My hand is yours to take
My heart is yours to break
My hand is yours to take
My heart is yours to break

And I'm so sincere when you're far away
That it hurts so bad my soul, it aches
Your stare into me never fades away
I was weak before, but you made me...
