Track Name: Stab
Well It seems that sometimes I don't say what I mean
And I don't mean what I say so
I can't find any sturdy stable stance I'd stick to
The more it goes the more I lose the way
Because I don't get all the rules of the game that we play
It is time to stop skirting around the issue, if you may

Stab me in the earhole
Stab, with all your heart
With a 20 feet pole
And i'll take a fresh start

Sometimes I don't mean what I say
And I don't say what I mean so
She says I am so mean, but I'm not

It is so not what I just said
I never meant to be so mean
to her ever, so you see what I mean,
Do you not ?

Stab me in the earhole
Stab, with all your heart
With a 20 feet pole
And i'll take a fresh start

I want you to say it right to my face
I've been longing for it for too many days

I want you to say it loud and clear
I want you to tell me what I
What I don't wanna hear
Track Name: Dance with you
coward and silly
and a heavy blindfold
it used to fit me
but pain got me old

The eyes all itchy
the taste of salt
it used to kill me
but I know my fault

I have the right shoes on, now
I want to dance with you
All the blisters are gone
You used to want that too

I was weak and unsteady
Now I need to unfold
I'm finally ready
to share my cold

The eyes all itchy
And hearts are on hold
Each day it strikes me
That you're made of gold

I have the right shoes on, now
I want to dance with you
All the blisters are gone
You used to want that too

I want to dance,
Dance with you

Each day it strikes me
That you're made of gold
Track Name: Noises
Noises, noises, food for your causes
Voices, voices of fools that take pauses
It might be a good thing to take your eyes off the clock

Rain of rocks
Of bricks and blocks

You climbed my head and killed the moon
Our minds are made of wood.

Acid, acid, colors so vivid
Rancid, rancid, your inside's so flascid
Once standing over the beam
Now beating up, all my dreams

Rain of rocks
Of bricks and blocks

Noises, noises
Track Name: Golden slavery
Listen to it

Is what
I've been told
Since I
Was old enough to hear

Listen to it

And I
I did it well
Yeah I
I still do

I know, but I pretend not to
It's easier
I could go, but I prefer not to
It's easier

Listen to it

I've been told to
Look after my golden slavery
Track Name: Death by a million splinters
Staring at those fake candles hanging
over this tiny bed I'm stuck
even if i wanted to I couldn't do a thing
because I burnt away my luck

I try to move my elbows
and I feel only pain
There is no choice
But pretend we're not insane


when I close my eyes I can just smell your voice
and it's whispering to my brain
that outside are cardboard rainbows
behind black curtains

It's death by a million splinters
How does it feel for you ?
It doesn't matter much
I'm up to my knees in glu

I'm up to my guts in you
Track Name: A pencil in the water
Like an anvil in a gutter
is how i feel, and i don't like to
Like a pencil in the water
is how i feel, when i'm with you

Too many teeth out it scares me off
It cannot be real, i think i don't like you
Strange whereabouts, i'm kinda lost
What am I doing here, around you

Like an anvil in a gutter
is how i feel, and i don't like to
Like a pencil in the water
is how i feel, when i'm with you

You eat me eat me eat me
alive
Won't you leave me leave me leave me
alone

Like a lamb at the slaughter
is how i feel, maybe i'm willing to
Like an anvil in a gutter, is how i feel
Waiting for you
Track Name: July
The sky was blue and so were you
The sun was high and so was I

This last July

A gift to you and a kiss or two,
Your mouth was dry and so was I

You love me in the evening
and you leave me in the morning
and i cry i cry i cry, oh my oh my
and i cry i cry i cry, oh why oh why ?

I did my shit, i sure deserved it
I took the blame and all the shame

This last July

Now we are on and on for long,
I am so pleased you proved me wrong

You love me in the evening
and you leave me in the morning
and i cry i cry i cry, oh my oh my
and i cry i cry i cry, oh why oh why ?

The sky aint blue and we aint blue too
It feels kinda right, it won't be like

This last July

You love me in the evening
and you leave me in the morning
and i cry i cry i cry, oh my oh my
and i cry i cry i cry, oh why oh why ?
Track Name: Unfair weather friend
I know you tried your best
but you just don't see the rain
he's heading to

I know he smiles when he sees you
but can't you feel that the wind
will blow at you ?

Something repels

You cannot be (not now, not ever)
You cannot be the unfair weather (not now, not ever)
friend

I know he likes to lay his head on you
but he fools you, and himself
even more

I know he could trust you anytime
But you just can't stop the hail
the storm he's going through

Someone repels

You cannot be (not now, not ever)
You cannot be the unfair weather (not now, not ever)
friend

Nobody can
not now, not ever
Nobody can, anyway

But her
