Track Name: Another Idea
Here's another idea
and it's better than what we're doing now
treasonous thoughts spilled on the ground
It's another idea
Accusations make everything go wrong
We've twisted this knife for far too long
It's another idea
Listen to me and lock your eyes to mine
A bitter mistake swept to the side
And all we've lost, my blood, your trust
we'll make new rules so we can't lose
And all I want to say to you is
"you're the one that I adore"
Here's another idea
if simplicity sounds like heaven to you
a silent concession overdue
It's another idea
Press your body so tenderly to mine
and we can leave this all behind
Track Name: Stay Awake
Soon you'll see the moment that I sweat for
Bruise and bleed
You'll never find your way home
All you read, a cracked and twisted cable
Soothe and seethe
It's useless and disabled
And now it's gone
I'm losing what I had
The only thing worthwhile, crumbed into dirt
Brains and seeds, they birth all your ideas
Anxious me, I'll never get what I want
And now it's gone
I'm losing what I had
The only thing worthwhile, crumbled into dirt
Save yourself, stay awake
Stop the dreams that haunt you
Slash their throats, find a way
Never get what you want
Lose yourself, run away
Never find your way home
Save yourself, stay awake
Stop the dreams that haunt you
Track Name: Dreams Medley
A dream is a wish your heart makes
when you're fast asleep
In dreams we lose all our heartaches
whatever you wish for you keep
Have faith in your dreams and someday
the rainbow will come shining through
No matter how your heart is grieving
if you keep on believing
the dream that you wish will come true
Track Name: Under the Line
I know she's down there under the line
I know she's melting in wintertime
I know she's spinning out into space
I know I've lost her without a trace
I know all there's to know
I know all there's to know
I know she's lying -- everything's fine
I know she'll come back home in no time
I know all there's to know
I know all there's to know
I know she's having the time of her life
I know deep down she's hardly alive
Track Name: The Hell of It
Roll on, thunder, shine on, lightnin'
The days are long and the nights are frightnin'
Nothing matters anyway, that's the hell of it
Winter comes and the winds blow colder
While some grew wiser, you just grew older
And you never listened anyway, that's the hell of it

Good for nothing, bad in bed
Nobody likes you, you're better off dead
Goodbye
We've all come to say goodbye
Born defeated, died in vain
Super destructive, you were hooked on pain
And though your music lingers on
All of us are glad you've gone

If I could live my life half as worthlessly as you
I'm convinced that I'd wind up burning too

Love yourself as you love no other
Be no man's fool and be no man's brother
We're all born to die alone, y'know, that's the hell of it
Life's a game where they're bound to beat you
And time's a trick, it can turn to cheat you
We only waste it anyway, that's the hell of it

Good for nothing, bad in bed
Nobody likes you, you're better off dead
Goodbye
We've all come to say goodbye
Born defeated, died in vain
Super destructive, you were hooked on pain
And though your music lingers on
All of us are glad you've gone
Track Name: A Million and Six
And if I bleed it was my plan
And I believe I can win her hand
It's not for me, my desire to win

I wear my crown but you never knew
You're eyes away but I still find you
The lust behind eye, I want to be him

Of all the nights there's not one clean
Shed all your skin and become your dream
My dream of you, dear, finding your way to me
Track Name: Silent
A new setback
Another new restraint
I fold and shrink until I break
If you're silent and screaming all the same
Your breathing gives your thoughts away to me
To me it's all the same
I wouldn't have it any other way

If I listen to what you have to say
I'll only hear the breath you make
If you give in and pull me to the floor
there's nothing else that matters more to me
To me it's all the same
I wouldn't have it any other way
Track Name: As Far As I Go
This is my first time into the ocean
Stars fall from the sky into the water
This is my last time out in the open
You've used it all and nothing is left
so this is as far as I go into the ocean

I'm finding a different way than the things you say
It's complicating
I need you in view but what I see is different than what you do
Wasting energy and apologies on the things that they said
You made your move from trading secrets
I am not gonna leave this alone

I'm not gonna leave this alone

It's only for a little while until this feeling resolves
under the pressure it's caused
And when you wake up one day
and feel it eating away at you
I know that it won't stop you

This is my last time, again, in the open

Today I will not pretend
I'm not gonna leave this alone
You have got to understand
I'm not gonna leave this alone
I will destroy your plans
I'm not gonna leave this alone
Just as fast I can
I know that it won't stop you

This is my last time, again, in the open
Track Name: Escape
I'll trade you this for that
A couch, a drink, a hand, a mouth
These actions you complete,
they don't help you grow, just rearrange things
Red eyes watch all the hype
and I wipe it down as you sleep it off
Vacate your dead-end life
I can make this work for me, too

Escape never felt so safe
Letting you drown in your mistakes

Soak up ultraviolet light
Alcohol poisoning
Blood for chlorophyll
You quit without a fight
Name tag by day, name tag at night

Escape never felt so safe
Letting you drown in your mistakes

And all the thing that made your life so comfortable were mine
And all the muddy nights you can't remember stole your time
So we'll escape and leave you in a world you can't survive
We'll escape and have a life
