Track Name: Serendipity
I watched you across the gym, it's plain to see you're in love with him so I'll sit on the bench.
I don't know what it is yet, it's just a feeling that I get when you're around.

Everybody's watching me now
I feel so down and so left out
Filling in the spaces, another face in the crowd.

This old soul needs somebody to hold, I found easy to drift alone but I'm not made for it.
Unspoken words too scared to say, there goes my chance as you walk away and my heart is broke.


Everybody's watching me now
I feel so down and so left out
Filling in the spaces, another face in the crowd.
Track Name: Beautiful Bones
This never ending battle of wits has got me falling into bits
and I am beginning to lose control.
While my mind conquers thoughts of love and suicide
My heart's empty inside.
Tell Mr. Sunshine X to leave me alone
and let this stickman draw alone.

So leave me alone, Beautiful Bones.
Track Name: Mr. Sunshine X
Mr. Sunshine X, can you tell me what happens next?
When you walk around in a perfect circle
While I'm trying hard to forget
That my whole life's a wreck
So step out of my head.

The lights flicker in the back, while the floors are stained and cracked.
You're too far away to hear me
As you shake your head in oblivion
Our hearts are distortion
Our hearts are distortion.

They pretend to feel and understand, to see the world in their hands.
Her mind is a symphony
Black and blue and green
What a sorry excuse for a dream
What a sorry excuse for a dream.

Hello December talk to me, I need some understanding.
Empty party afternoons
The sweet vibrant heat
Falling from the Christmas tree
Has got me thinking, it's not even over yet.

Mr. Sunshine X, can you tell me what happens next?
When you walk around in a perfect circle
While I'm trying hard to forget
That my whole life's a wreck
So step out of my head.
Track Name: Don't Fail Me Now
Breathe, don't fail me now.
Always saw eye to eye
Never once realized what you meant to me.
We danced among the dead
Held you close and said you were mine
Told you that we'd burn the sky up until Heaven falls down.

Don't fail me now
Don't fail me now
Everybody's gone away, I only wish that you could've stayed a little longer.

You said that I could hide my wounds
Cover them up without a problem
Never once saw my heart til you were gone.
We danced among the dead
Held you close and said you were mine
Told you that we'd burn the sky up until Heaven falls down.

Don't fail me now
Don't fail me now
Everybody's gone away, I only wish that you could've stayed a little longer.

We danced among the dead
Held you close and said you were mine
Told you that we'd burn the sky up until Heaven falls down.
Track Name: Hello 3am
Hello 3am, how have you been?
Last time we spoke, I was stinking of Gin.
I lost all my friends, were they there at all?
But I might be back on top.

I can't drown my sorrows cause they know how to swim.
I tried hard to lose but I wound up with a win
It's times like these where I feel so alone
am I really on my own?

The shadows are bleeding as they dance on the wall.
United we stand, all alone we will fall.
Will she come back? I don't know for sure.
Cause time is such a bore.

Money's a waste of time and beauty's overrated.
Each and every day I find myself fading.
I wish I could be like a bird in the rain
and find a place to escape.
Find a place to escape.
Track Name: Sweet Nightingale
I'll never grasp your concept of Heaven.
Angels built upon my destruction.

Sweet cartoon character on his throne in Hell
Engulfed in my dark opium.
Lost another day yesterday ago
Finding out fast I'm dying slow.
Sweet Nightingale, fly softly.
Sweet Nightingale, stop your crying.

The sun shines in my Heavenly Hell.
I'm quite alright though it may be hard to tell.

Static remains of the lost gray daydreams
I fade off into the whining of the violin.
Tell me now what should I resent?
What's the difference in a dream and a joke?
How could my beloved sink so low?
In a glass I have your pale rose.

I'll be your friend when the world treats you like a toy.
I'll be your friend when the world treats you like a toy.
Track Name: Yellow Nothing
The sun likes to crash on my window
While I'm peacefully sleeping and weeping, for you.
As you paint my world red
With your soft chameleon eyes
But your love might as well be a ghost
Sweet tear in my soul
And I feel like dying for anyone.

I'm creating love with misery and she's happier somehow
I can't imagine.
And you fill my head with dreams of pale yellow.

And I wear my heart on my sleeve
but I hide it from you cause I'm a disease
or at least that's what Sunshine told me.
And my sadness is foolish and loud
And it brings everyone else down
So I'll never leave my zone and drown
And I never meant to hurt you
It's what everyone expects from me
Take a seat, and enjoy.

The sun likes to crash on my window
While I'm peacefully sleeping and weeping, for you.
As you paint my world red
With your soft chameleon eyes
But your love might as well be a ghost
Sweet tear in my soul
And I feel like dying for anyone.
Track Name: Heroin and Honeybuns
Maggie makes my mouth numb
Maggie says I'm much too young
To be worried about anything
Cause goodness will surely come my way.

To be worried about anything
Cause goodness will surely come my way.
To be worried about anything
Cause goodness will surely come my way.

Maggie says I look just fine
Maggie says it's all in my mind
And I shouldn't say such harsh things
Cause one day soon it'll all be better for me.

And I shouldn't say such harsh things
Cause so many people would love to be set free.
And I shouldn't say such harsh things
Cause so many people would love to be set free.

Maggie says it's all in my mind
Maggie says I look just fine
Maggie says it's all in my mind
Maggie says I look just fine.
Maggie says it's all in my mind.

Maggie makes my mouth numb.
Track Name: Tarantula
These empty words can't express my feelings of loneliness.
Hairs up, revolver in your robe, a beautiful mess.
Okay it's time to go, I'll try my best.

The flowers they wilt for me.
The hours are full of pain.
Quick like a gunshot, tarantula.

White walls, soda pop glamor can't save me now.
Dead dolls, they call it home but there's a change in the stars.

The flowers they wilt for me.
The hours are full of pain.
Quick like a gunshot, tarantula.

these empty words can't express my feelings of loneliness.

The flowers they wilt for me.
The hours are full of pain.
Quick like a gunshot, tarantula.
Track Name: Carrie
The Queen will burn you to her will
and if you don't you'll be crucified just the same.
The moon is a fiery blaze, in dark maroon stains they lay.
And you don't say a word I suppose.
And these tears that fall over blood, are cried alone.

With a smile that will take you far away.
And a mind that will burn you through her change.
And she prays in baby blue, lost and out of tune.
And it rains upon her tomb, with flowers wilted and bruised.
Track Name: Heart of a Blackbird
You lay in their favorite hole to put you in
The stares and whispers are ready to begin
It screams so loud it becomes your best friend
The silence eating at your brain.
I can't be caught getting too sentimental
Cause I don't believe in anything
The comforting fear that comes accidental
The large black eyes that scream in my sleep.

It's always gray in the heart of a blackbird.

High on PM's and fascination
My thoughts are beyond my control
Down on AM's and desolation
Looking for a savior in anyone.
The sun's gone black and the trees are frozen stiff
The outside world starts to melt again
I try to look out but I only see in
I try to look out but I only see in.

It's always gray in the heart of blackbird.
It's always gray, always gray again.
I can't explain the haunting face I see.
Cause it's always gray in the heart of a blackbird.
Track Name: Where She Comes From
Mrs. White's lead pipe is down the hall.
Professor Plumbs six gun is shooting them all.
And I'm with the Joker a man who knows me well.
We left together in a beat up Chevy escaping from Hell.

So if you see her on the way, give her this message from me
Tell her to go back to where she comes from.

Times Square is full of stares and faces I can't recall.
Cinderella and the Devil himself are leaving for the Ball.
I can buy my pain and sorrow but happiness is always free.
Antony and Cleopatra they left together and so shall we.

So if you see her on the way, give her this message from me
Tell her to go back to where she comes from.

Venus and Aphrodite are waiting for the sun at night to sing by themselves.
They're the leaders of love but they can't find none for themselves.
They're singing a song and it might be wrong but I really can't tell.

So if you see her on the way, give her this message from me
Tell her to go back to where she comes from.
