Track Name: Sour Diesel
it's not my fault that you want away from me
spot the right choice, it ain't easy to see

if i had the plague... you couldn't run faster
if you stay... it's a recipe for disaster

never mind, on with the show
you got a better place ahead of you
so why don't you go

the look back over your shoulder
hindsight is clarity friend
passion for you grows colder
can't make that choice again

take me down... down to the bottom
make me drown... emotions are swallowed
leave me there... to be forgotten
i won't care... that you won't follow

the look back over your shoulder
hindsight is clarity friend
passion for you grows colder
can't make that choice again

eyes wide open, it's time for you to decide
the grass is always greener (greener) in the countryside
safe haven awaits you, a welcome place to hide
the grass is always greener (greener) in the countryside
Track Name: Exhale
you hide in your bedroom and play in your head
stare at the darkness and talk to the dead
i creep to your window in spite of the fear
my breath on the glass and my voice in your ear

breathe in
to the world i seem so unrecovered
breathe in
and when i exhale
well i began to reap

happily ever after's just a dream to me
the white-washed walls of my fantasy
and if you wake and if you scream
you'll never get to see what my decadence brings

breathe in

from out of the shadows from under the bed
i wait till you're sleeping and fuck with your head
i peer through the dim light and crawl on the floor
the smell of perfection the smell of a whore

breathe in
to the world i seem so uninviting
breathe in
and when i exhale
then i become the beast

happily ever after's just a dream to me
the white-washed walls of my fantasy
and if you wake and if you scream
you'll never get to see what my decadence brings

breathe in

oooh, now, say a prayer on your knees
and if something scares you it's just me
and if you wait up till midnight
yeah, i'll do you right

breathe in
to the world i seem so unrecovered
breathe in
and when i exhale
then i begin to reap

happily ever after's just a dream to me
the white-washed walls of my fantasy
and if you wake and if you scream
you'll never get to see what my decadence brings

happily ever after's just a dream to me
the white-washed walls of my fantasy
and if you wake and if you scream
you'll never get to see what my decadence brings
Track Name: Muffy
bleach blonde, daddy's pride
plastic built suicide
guess who's taking you for a ride

it's not enough that i'm giving you
twice as much as you're giving me
your spell has got me stuck to your boot
running in circles
can't you see
it puts the devil in me

rocking out, Rodeo Drive
spend like it's your last day alive
prom queen funeral
'cause the boy net door just took it all

it's not enough that i'm killing you
twice as fast as it's killing me
your spell has got me stuck in your gut
twisting in circles
can't you see
it puts the devil in me
Track Name: End Of You
ooohh, it's your turn to die
now you must die
it's your turn to die
cut off his head

satan sits and he's laughing at you
not amused by the evil you try to do
worst of all you do it in his name
hoping capture will lead to a life of fame
the big picture's painted different for you
you hit them with red and they hit you with blue
things don't work out the way you want them to
different story but still the end of you

the end of you
the end of you
sad to say but it's true
the end of you
so sad to see the end of you

unanswered cries, pleas for salvation
reliever won't die just eternal damnation
the choice is yours you can do what you will
in the end it's your soul that you'll kill
society said that it's done with you
it's time to pay that what is due
the cost is high body and soul too
tough deal but still the end of you

the end of you
the end of you
sad to say but it's true
the end of you
so sad to see the end of you

"The 4 Harpsmen of the Apocalypse" harmonica performed by Davey "White Gums" Glannon
Track Name: Park And Ride
keep the fear inside keep her warm at night
our skin will tell the story of when things went right
we pulled into the drive-in on our own
hand entwined with those sweet word on our mind
promises of love we could not get enough
innocence of children we have over come
the sparkle in her eyes are my stars tonight
breathless now and helpless to deny this right

it's only us tonight
will we park and ride
the feeling gets caught in the moments light

our bodies fall into the stratosphere
soon we will see with new eyes
the fires in our skies will scorch the countryside
fight off the nervousness with hearts that beat in time

capturing the moment on our phones
the cooler kids won't believe in the tricks of things
she whispers in the darkness, "take me home."
then climbs into the backseat and takes off her clothes
will this passion be everything it wants to be
how could we have lost ourselves in the worthless time
she motions in the moonlight and we touch
the world gets lost in the rush that becomes only us

it's only us tonight
will we park and ride
the feeling gets caught in the moments light

our bodies fall into the stratosphere
soon we will see with new eyes
the fires in our skies will scorch the countryside
fight off the nervousness
the trembling of our lips
the final kiss beyond the veil of innocence
Track Name: Tougher To Mend
all the tables are turned
i kept 'em right on the outside, stumbling, innocent
every moment a flash-freeze
suburbia past tense in the dark we release
faded, give it a chance and let the pills kick in
every card house looking for the ace to win
the devil waiting, the monster is gaining
the truth is

we cry when we laugh about it

can you take me
far from here
can you make me
never look back in fear
oh lord help me
know the reason why
oh lord tell me
getting tired of watching my past die

journey for the wrong reasons
dusty snakes cross the highway
watch another piece of myself
black skies above lead the way
i am the witness
i am the one who sees

can you take me
far from here
can you make me
never look back in fear
oh lord help me
know the reason why
oh lord tell me
getting tired of watching my past die

i wear my scars with pride
am i the only one who sees
just for today be someone else
just want some peace for myself
i am the witness
i am the one who sees

getting tires of watching my past

been down this road before
i know how it ends
open my heart each time
tougher to mend
Track Name: Spider Suite
come and see me
you dressed up your wings
your teeth and claws
your blood-lined jaw
black outlined eyes
she's dyed to the root
it makes my spirit fly

feed me all your lines
i'll take the best of you

feed me your lies, i eat your fake
it's like a need to feel insane
i'm drawn into all of your kind
just keep away 'cause that's the best for you
midnight promises to rest your head
'cause in a dream i wished you dead
you're last nights haze still locked in my brain
i'd cut you loose but i'm afraid

feed me all your lies
i'll take the worst of you, yeah

how could i have let my fear subside
trust in you was never the broken side of selfish pride
maybe forever (forever) my murderous rage would stay
inside my broken mind and never see the light of day

i make my escape across your grave
and i'm inclined to keep your face
it's just a tax for what you've done
it's like we're finally having fun
i wear your skin at times in my life
when i feel the pain in my back from the knife
now thinking back to that fucking night
i smile and know i'm right

feed me all your lies
i'll take the life from you

cold drips of blood for the trail you follow
leads to the mouth of hell to suck and swallow
we grinded bones, we made a bed
only to realize one of us was dead

(Lead: Dan)
Track Name: Moments
times you tried to forget
but you know they're here to stay
they follow you everywhere that you turn
and they haunt you today
moments of the past
that you can't take away
fooling yourself with all your lies
that it will be ok

you think i can't go on
being eaten from the inside
thought my guilty conscience
had long ago died

(Lead: Kev & Dan)

times growing short my friend
to fight this battle within
i fought for oh so long
but my patience wears thin
if i could just bring me back
to where it all did begin
and try to stop myself from my
original sin

Track Name: Eyes And Teeth
i really should have known
it would be waiting for me on the other side
always waiting

keep from letting go
i've been meddling
wandering fool inside
shadows on her face
death in moonlight
such sweet suffering
end of never was
put your hand in mine
together we can break this space open
peace that is never known
all eyes begging to be blind
pain begins with a love
older than the sky

all these corpses
if they could talk
instead they only point the finger
weak but restless
i keep the animals
so safe

(Lead: Dan)

your absence slowly murders me
Track Name: I've Got Me Under Your Skin
aaaahhhh

in my head i know i did everything right
i gave up my whole life just for you
anytime you needed me i was always right there
any day, any time, i was there for us

i've got me under your skin
i've got me under your skin

and now you have people trying to keep us from being together
it won't work, i will not let it
we will not be apart, i will stop them
i'll do anything to stop them
i'll stop them for you
i'll stop them for us

i've got me under your skin
i've got me under your skin

(Lead: Dan)

for all our suffering it's come to this
you're not sorry, you've never been sorry
i know what i need to do
i know what needs to be done
the only way to end this is to end you
so i'm coming
i'm coming tonight
i'm coming tonight to kill you
Track Name: Jackboot
the boots are marching
you know my name
come for me
claim it's time, it's time to pay
goose away
from me another to select
i am the unpaid debt
you will never collect

you're not done with me
('till i say so)
as these boots kick the dirt
(on top of me)
there's no way, no way
(to make me go)
i'll leave when i can call myself free

(Lead: Dan)

break into crypts that bear my name
to prove to yourself i'm gone
crawl into coffins and lie with the dead
where you belong

you'll never kill me
world without me, there never will be
the dream of my demise
you will never see

(Lead: Kev)
Track Name: Lampyradae
the sky glows at night as they begin to appear
unknown flying evil fills small heads with fear

abduction is immanent
you can't run, you can't hide
they'll take you to the dream place
lock you inside
screams of the past light
that faded and died
all curse the captor
that locked them inside

freedom stolen, the days seem like years
the lights quickly fading, the worst of your fears

abduction is immanent
you can't run, you can't hide
they'll take you to the dream place
lock you inside
screams of the past light
that faded and died
all curse the captor
that locked them inside

(Lead: Dan)

(Lead: Kev)

sacred place where you long to return
extinguished life, but in their minds they still burn

abduction is immanent
you can't run, you can't hide
they'll take you to the dream place
lock you inside
screams of the past light
that faded and died
all curse the captor
that locked them inside

locked them inside
Track Name: Trainwreck
unchosen one
no calls on the telephone
later on you can drive yourself home
'cause you're gonna be alone

like a train
through the traffic
you are moving through
the mating

appetite for love

appetite for love
you wont be sating
the mirror reflects
what you have been hating

appetite for love
kiss goodnight, a shove

last one picked in the kickball game
with no good looks your fate will be about the same
if beauty is skin deep is what it's all about
sorry girl, you were born inside out

(Lead: Kev)

(Lead: Dan)

pork chop tied around your neck
dog still runs 'cause he knows you're a
train wreck

(outro harmonica by Davey "White Gums" Glannon)
