Track Name: Shine In You
you'll forget me when i'm gone
or maybe you just never knew me
i thought i was the only one
but i was wrong, or so we'll see

and you
true colors shine in you

all this time i've been so quiet
silence is my lie to you
on and on i reach for you (x3)
on and on i reach

from your pictures i'm erased
hidden for the world to see
and in my bed i've made my place
the only thing you'll say to me

and you
true colors shine in you

all this time i've been so quiet
silence is my lie to you
on and on i reach for you (x3)
on and on i reach

you'll forget me when i'm gone
or maybe you just never knew me
i thought i was the only one
but i was wrong, or so we'll see

and you
true colors shine in you

all this time i've been so quiet
silence is my lie to you
on and on i reach for you (x3)
on and on i reach
Track Name: Test The Water
put me down, so i can start over
and give me back another thing to say
my voice is quiet, and i need the volume
not that you'll hear me any fucking way

test the water once again
i can feel you now and then
test the water i can feel it again

put me down, i thought it'd be easy
to turn my back on you and walk away
but now i see i can't ever leave it,
and no excuses standing in my way

test the water once again
i can feel you now and then
test the water i can feel it again

this time i need your faith
this time i need belief
in every word i write
and every part of me

put me down, so i can start over
and give me back another thing to say
my voice is quiet, and i need the volume
not that you'll hear me any fucking way

test the water once again
i can feel you now and then
test the water i can feel it again
Track Name: Dirty 9
and i was dying to see, if you had turned out alright
i guess the past wasn't much, an indication this time
beneath your incomplete thoughts, an end you'll never escape
you know, it hurts me so much to see them leave you this way

i dream of when your head was better
when you were sane or where you ever
twenty years or more is much too long
i can't wait around to sit through
the fantasies on newer sick you
twenty years or more is just too long

and now i'm dying to leave, it isn't going as planned
i figured out what you are, you barely know who i am
he claws away at the walls, and ends the conversation
you know it hurts me so much to see you rot here alone

i dream of when your head was better
when you were sane or where you ever
twenty years or more is much too long
i can't wait around to sit through
the fantasies on newer sick you
twenty years or more is just too long

it's funny you feel everything
has to be intended for
hurting or harassing you
if you, do not engage i'll do it too
angry neighbors at the door
investigators aren't coming
if you lose one then you'll have three
don't be nervous it's just a compliment

no, no it's not your fault
everything was fake, slowly fall apart
so, so you pull me in
after all that's gone, after all that's been
and so i leave your world
my heart must either break
or turn to lead my freind
it haunts me you're still under there
Track Name: Dog
ever since i met you, i've been trying to avoid you
but you looked my way and called my name and i walked right by you
in a moment of weakness i made my way around to you
and ever since then nothing's been the same and it's all 'cause of you

it's the demons in the water, it's the devil in disguise
he's been preying on my name a long time
and it seems he always borrows, just a little every time
but he won't complain, 'cause the debt is all mine

made a promise to shed you, but you got your nails in too deep
all those things you said inside my head and i hear your heartbeat
it's the same old familiar sound, the rhythm that consumes me
there's not a moment of the day that could go by that i don't think of you

it's the demons in the water, it's the devil in disguise
he's been preying on my name a long time
and it seems he always borrows, just a little every time
but he won't complain, 'cause the debt is all mine

doth not he latch on and feed like a leech
we're wired this way to be diseased
the choice is always ultimately ours
a pandora's jar is what we received

every time i think i found my way back home
then i figured out i lost my way
when every little thing reminds me of you
then i know i've gone and lost my way

it's the demons in the water, it's the devil in disguise
it's the dog over your shoulder, it's the jar you open wide
it's the one thing you can't have, it's the one thing left inside

no he won't complain, 'cause the debt is all mine
no he won't complain, the debt is all mine

he won't complain, 'cause the debt is all mine
Track Name: NewNue
let's go, catch it on the 44
downtown, where i always want some more
sell me, this tastes like another one
she's there, holding up the other side
slip in, take her for a little ride
2 shots, take her to the back for more

i feel the stares, i feel no shame
drawing the line, but not the blame
taken aback because it's wasted time
oh i can't take it

jameson, open up another fifth
fat nicks, come on down a take a hit
settle, at the bar we're moving on
some punk, looking for another fight
nod off, fuzzy but i feel alright
these girls, guess i'll take the middle one

i feel the stares, i feel no shame
drawing the line, but not the blame
taken aback because it's wasted time
oh i can't take it

and then i wake up
and i still feel the same
i'll make it stronger
'cause i'm dulling the pain

all my life
all these nights
are killing me here
all this time
all my life
all these nights
are killing me here

they're killing me
Track Name: Fingergrease
drowning in a pool of vomit, this is how i wanna end it all
i'm not trying your hero, fingergrease your pooper all night long

and i feel it's going over me, and over me
and i see you're finally lost for words, and lost for words

cash for diabetic test strips, let me see you dip it, STD
pet care, everyone goes hungry, suffering from depression, travel mugs

and i feel it's going over me, and over me
and i see you're finally lost for words, and lost for words, and lost for words

yeah

i just wanna feel like, all of this will matter
randomness is killing me
trying to piece together, everything is scattered
to the point of absurdity

i don't want to hurt you
even though i'd love to
even though you went and
put me through hell

and i feel it's going over me, and over me
and i see you're finally lost for words, and lost for words, and lost for words
Track Name: Indigenous
this life indigenous to where the body lies
the fading memory, the water in your eyes
now this is serious, no time to hesitate
regret the only one, the chance you didn't take

and when you're gone,
now it's time for me

this life indigenous, no one can ever change
unless they realize, there's no time to be afraid
you'll make it on your own, i hope that you will see
this life, indigenous, will fade for you and me

and when you're gone (x2)
i don't know anything (x8)

this life indigenous to where the body lies
the fading memory, the water in your eyes

and when you're gone (x3)
i don't know anything (x8)
Track Name: Brown Bag
even the notion of locked inside your cage
isn't enough to make you change the way
that you acquire what will bring you down
you're dead already, but not yet in the ground

and i wanna believe
that some day you'll just open your eyes
i know it's all make believe
'cause you never will find your way back home

i've seen this before and i know how it goes
your time is done and you'll be on your own
and we both know what you'll do in the end
less then a week of being out and then

and i wanna believe
that some day you'll just open your eyes
i know it's all make believe
'cause you never will find your way back home

it's not what you are
it's not what you need to
it's just that you're made to fall down

lately that something has come back to me
colder and empty with nothing beneath
everything's clearer when things fall apart
coming in closer kept in by the dark
kept in by the dark (x3)

back in the same place from which it began
see no real ending i stare at the wall
time loses meaning as shit fades away
drowning my sorrows to cover my grave
cover my grave
cover my grave
cover my grave

a way back home

and we both know what you'll do in the end
less then a week of being out and then (x2)

it's not what you are
it's not what you need to
it's just that you're made to fall down
Track Name: Cover
i never thought i'd see the day
i finally said goodbye before you went away
and i awoke to see you, and didn't hear a sound
can't stand to see the faces gathered all around

you're running for cover
you're taking no others
they're coming to steal you
replace what's inside of

i tried to give you up and though you let me down
the gravity remains the same
and i'll be holding on, to all the memories when life was good
and mattered something to you

you're running for cover
you're taking no others
they're coming to steal you
replace what's inside of

i tried to give you up and though you let me down
the gravity remains the same
and even though you're gone, another day will come
and the piece you left with me a peace for me and you

you're running for cover
you're taking no others
they're coming to steal you
replace what's inside of

i couldn't see you through this
and i wouldn't help you to it
but now there's just one question
was it all really worth the price
were you afraid of living
while you were slowly dying
i couldn't see you through this, or stand by your side and watch the light
just fade out from your eyes

but now you're gone, and i am left with all this

you're running for cover
you're taking no others
they're coming to steal you
replace what's inside of
