Track Name: indescribable
it's indescribable
but it's all you know
it's everything you want
but you had to go and run, run away

the indigo children;
our auras are still bright
why did i tell myself
that you weren't right for me, for me

'cause i've been watching movies
trying to get inside those worlds
where everyone stays the same
and there's no such thing as change

i've been taking the time
to forget this girl
'cause i am so afraid
i am so insane

and out of all the colours of fall
black seems to have the most prevalence
i guess maybe white it could exist
if i was me, and this was this

but i am not myself today
my words; i just have nothing to say

it's funny what some drinks can do
it's funny i said that i love you
Track Name: every now and then
sit in the park,
wait for dark,
fill my head with strange things

just passing the time,
between day and night,
close my eyes with strange dreams

and every now and then I think of you
wonder what it is you do
each day : I think of you
I wonder if you think of me too..

no! I'm not living my life
like a dead man's wife
so close, so close to being without you

you said "are you smoking enough?,
"girl you look rough.."
I swear to god, I swore I'd forget you

but every now and then I think of you
wonder what it is you do
each day : I think of you
I wonder if you think of me too..

it's funny what happens to lovers
when they don't belong with one another.
we were so young and stupid,
and hey- you're the one who fled undercover

so every now and then, I think of you;
I wonder if you think of me too.
Track Name: dream in green, jealousy
My palms are sweaty
My eyes are heavy
I can feel my heart beat
gotta breath in slowly.

Where are you now?
Where are you now?

My head makes decisions
and I can't stop these visions;
I want to see your face bleed.
I want to hear your voice scream.

I know, I know, I know
it's jealousy
but you know, you know,
Love makes you do crazy things
So keep your stars to yourself
If you leave now
I'll wish you well.

I knew that you hung out
Fucked around all strung out
Didn't you think you'd regret it?
I'll make you regret it.

I know, I know, I know
it's jealousy
but you know, you know,
Love makes you do crazy things
So keep your stars to yourself
If you leave now
I'll wish you well.

Now I dream in green,
There's nothing in between.
My eyes are fire burning!
These lessons, you should be learning!

I know, I know, I know
it's jealousy
but you know, you know,

Love makes you do crazy things

So keep your stars to yourself
If you leave now
I'll spare you hell.
Track Name: anonymous
Wake up and lay where I lay
Stay still; can't seem to stomach the day
Oh the skies are grey
and my eyes are grey.
The music is grey,
and you just let it play..

I think I used to wake up strong
I think I used to answer calls
but I've got nothing good to say
to these old familiar names.

Feel my body giving out
Fill my head with countless doubts
When will my worries stray?
When will my sadness stray?
You know the sky is grey!
Won't you just let it rain?..

I think I used to wake up strong
I think I used to answer calls
but I've got nothing good to say
to these old familiar names..

Who never knew me anyway!
Who never knew me anyway!

I'm not where I would like to be,
and I'm sick with apathy
and these skies are, skies are, skies are overwhelming.
and I'm dreary, dreary just pretending.

I think I used to wake up strong
I think I used to answer calls
but I've got nothing good to say
to these old familiar faces
Track Name: caller ID
If I had caller id
then I would know if you were calling me
I could answer the phone
Maybe meet you for coffee
If only I had caller id

and if anonymous don't stop calling me
well I think that I might go crazy
this must be why I am so lonely
if only I had caller id

if only I had caller id.
Track Name: not a lioness
Sun shines in the room I'm sitting in;
Try not to think of you- 'cause your dark.

When you chose to change your mind,
You could have let me go before the time of death.

I'm in the car that you towed to a place that I don't know.
I'm the seed that you planted to abuse as it grows.

Your evil eyes
and your dirty clothes
Relentless lies
and your copied prose.

I'm the colour grey in your world of cheap mistakes,
and I can't stand the words you use to catch your prey.
Not a lioness,
but a fucking cloud of shame.

Your evil eyes
and your dirty clothes
Relentless lies
and your copied prose.

I'm the lie that you'll tell to continue to create hell
For everyone you'll ever touch;
It's poisoning trying to bleed this blood for you.
Yeah, It's poisoning just trying to bleed this blood for you.

I let you tie me up
I let you tear me down
You made me hold my breath
so you could watch me drown

Now my lips are blue
but they're better without you.
Sure these nights are blue,
but they're better without you.
Track Name: everything versus nothing
i've been sitting
i've been listening to the radio playing
songs about you
songs about me
now i am paying

how come you don't feel bad?
'cause I feel bad

i could draw the most beautiful picture
but you'd play blind
now you could see the sincerity
but you close your eyes
talking to you is like talking to no one
trying to get my point across
but i am no one
to you, to you, to you
to you

how can you not feel bad
'cause i feel worse than i've ever felt
i feel like im living hell
and you feel nothing
you feel nothing.
Track Name: appleseeds of discord
this weather brings me back
paints my insides black
taste of charcoal
'cause I had too much to drink

you remind and I remember
ghosts of ways I used to be
my eyes evil december
that same way they used to see

greyest sky it plays tonight
like a movie in my mind
I can feel the darkness coming
you can't escape the storm inside

first snowfall of the season
emperor's already screaming
hear the harm, hear the discord
fear my eyes, and fear the bleeding

you know; you've always been the best
at bringing out the worst of me
drugs, sex, and cigarettes
your presence fucking tortures me

greyest sky it plays tonight
like a movie in my mind
I can feel the darkness coming
you can't escape the storm inside

you can laugh right in my face
say the words you say
but don't you ever say her name
don't ever fucking say her name to me again
Track Name: VOICE580
I took a walk down on Saturday
I took a walk down just to see my face in grey

I guess I thought we'd always look the same
I thought I'd always feel the same

I'm just so tired
still I can't sleep at night
and I feel so wrong
just strumming along.

I was searching for direction
trying to straighten up the sections of my mind
but I'm always looking for excuses
I'm always feeling fucking useless; all the time.

I'm just so tired
still I can't sleep at night
and I feel so wrong
just strumming along.

I used to stare my dreams right in the face
I used to know how to get out of this place
of grey
Track Name: trainwreck
I've been on this train for weeks
and it's brought me to my knees
'Cause I don't know where I've been going
I think I'd rather it crashed

'Cause I've been hating the place I sit
Resenting the life I live
but the train just wouldn't stop..
I don't know what I did.

Now I'm stuck at the scene of the mess
It was a horrible drug to ingest
I think I'd rather be dead.

before it ends..
before it ends..
before it ends..

I thought I'd go for one last walk
but there's no hands on this old clock
I'd have to stay here for forever..
So I just let it crash.

It never ends.

Don't want to hear that wretched sound.
I just want to feel that calm of the ground.
What does it take to just be still?
Shouldn't have let it begin..

It never ends.

They're lifeless, I think they're all dead
Just stood and watched them in my head
This train's a mountain of regret,
but I miss it the same.

It never ends..
It never ends..
It never ends..
It never ends.
Track Name: today I am a swan
today i am a swan
swimming home from work
and i feel so fucking flawless
'cause last night i beat the curse

of lacking needed sleep
and forgetting to eat
well i think i beat it good
slept like a human should

slept like humans should
slept like a human should
yeah i think i beat it good
slept like a human should
