Track Name: Life After Grief
Life After Grief

superstition is cold
and I'm freezing in here
you are trapped in a world
of betrayal and fear

I can't make you feel good
and I know that I should

this depression you found
is a getaway plan
it's a one person home
for two people's demands

you just gotta believe
that there's life after grief

for this life you lead
is getting you nowhere
making you feel like a bum

I'm nothing at all
I'm everything you wanted
except for what I'm not

ammunition is fuel
for recovering troops
repetition is cruel
and we're stuck on a loop

I cannot understand
what has failed in this plan

all the errors you mention
I have buried and lost
I am mildly pretentious
at affordable costs

you just gotta believe
that there's life after grief

for the life we had
was leading us nowhere
we're starting all over again

Track Name: Reach For Something
Reach For Something

sometimes I reach for nothing
sometimes I reach for the stars
without going too far
it happens inside of my brain

and then I dream of skylines
and beings that don't exist
blowing smoke through the mist
inhaling puddles of rain

sometimes I reach for something
as if nothing ever comes out of it

sometimes I care for no one
sometimes I love everyone
and pet their hearts with a gun
rubbing their bellies with slaves

and then I plan on crying
without shedding a tear
I'm empowered by fear
like cats chasing dogs to their graves

Track Name: Walking Around With You In My Head
Walking Around With You In My Head

I feel so stupid, I don’t know what’s going on
I get so nervous and I'm biting on my tongue

I really don’t know why I’m singing about myself
When I only seem to think about somebody else

I’m going crazy without you
Not as if I wasn’t before, just more
And this is not an obsession or trying to get laid in your bed
It’s just walking around with you in my head

I feel so dumb I wanna write bad poetry
And all my rhymes are valentines lost at sea

I get the crazy feeling that I’m not alone
And even gangsters in the street are whistling this song

I get the feeling that I was born to ride my train on your track
So come back
So when we get to the station, we’ll swim in perspiration
You said ‘I’ve been walking around with you in my head’

This is such a happy song
This is such a happy song
So sing along

La la la la

Track Name: Kingdom Come
Kingdom Come

cannot change a lightbulb
cannot trust a friend
cannot stick to any kind of plan

cannot change direction
cannot make amends
cannot read the words in smaller print

and it feels like I'm having too much fun
hanging on to what you've done wrong
till kingdom come

men of good intentions
sow what they don't reap
digging holes to bury all the weak

cannot change a lightbulb
cannot trust a friend
cannot stick to any kind of plan

Track Name: The Pleasure And The Pain
The Pleasure And The Pain

the pleasure and the pain
a light upon the shade
a curtain never drawn
a reason to move on

the pleasure and the pain
a hunter and a prey
a rival and a friend
to give and to demand
the pleasure and the pain

there must be some connection
out there for us all

the pleasure and the pain
a cloud that never rains
an altruistic side
of selfishness and pride

the pleasure and the pain
a railroad and a train
when pleasure meets the eye
the body clears the mind
the pleasure and the pain

Track Name: If I Let You Down
If I Let You Down

you can ask the questions now
if you can take replies
that wipe away the anger from your eyes

you can't be possessive
if you leave me behind
thinking that I'm here to say goodbye

you are well intentioned
and you just treat me bad
by rolling to the far side of the bed

you can't steal the fire
and hope to see a spark
based on troubled thoughts and false remarks

if I let you down
if I let you down will you forget
and forgive

you can't find solutions
if you don't do the math
put odd numbers right behind your back

you can't trust me anyway
if you don't trust yourself
it's just a phase of poor mental health

you cannot be cheerful
if you embrace the pain
that's tickling synapses in your brain

you can put me down now
'cause you will lift me up
just me tell me what you feel with all your guts

Track Name: Fools On Parade
Fools On Parade

we're fools on parade
dumb and indifferent
boring and bored
free but addicted

we're fools on parade
drunk, brainless mammals
with muscles of rage
and cigarette bellows

the sun shines on idiots
who can't tell right from wrong

we're fools on parade
indulgent shadows
who work for the sake
of physical values

we're fools on parade
numbskulls in fashion
dishonest mistakes
of natural selection

the sun shines on idiots
who can't tell light from dark

fools on parade
ravaging statues
who try to proclaim
violence as a virtue

we're fools on parade
recycled soldiers
of dogmas and claims
where weakness seems bolder

the sun shines on idiots
who can't tell right from wrong

Track Name: Bad Memory's Drive
Bad Memory's Drive

put me on a train
put me on a train and send me rollin'
put me on a boat
put me on a boat and send me flowin'
down your bad, bad memory's drive

put me on a show
put me on a show to play the villain
row your little boat
row your little boat across the ceiling
and down your bad, bad memory's drive

if I fall from from grace
and you can't bear to see my face
if you close your eyes
I will gladly be your guide
we will not hide
down in your bad, bad memory's drive

put me on a train
put me on a train and send me rollin'
put me on a boat
put me on a boat and send me flowin'
down your bad, bad memory's drive

tie me to a chair
tie me to a chair and kick me over
lonely and scared
lonely and scared I'll be your lover
down your bad, bad memory's drive

Track Name: Danger Danger
Danger Danger

danger danger
permanent strangers
roaming in the back of your mind
putting out the fire
of burning desire
making out with pillows is fine

danger danger
permanent strangers
sucking all the life out of you
feeding you nothing
but beans and laxatives
searching for a permanent youth

maybe your heart is on a platter for the feast
maybe your story's just the beauty and the beast

danger danger
strapped to a manger
facing all the ridicule
nothing is sacred
but someone's naked
body on the back of a mule

maybe your head is on a platter or a dish
maybe your story's just the beauty and the beast

danger danger
safety's avenger
looking at pornography
sinful monuments
for lonely moments
a prayer for anatomy

maybe your heart is on a platter for the feast
maybe your story's just the beauty and the beast

Track Name: Endless Support
Endless Support

sometimes we can see what isn't there
I wonder if we can
sometimes we belive in what we care
I wonder if we dare
sometimes we can be what we have done
I wonder if it's wrong
sometimes we can see what isn't there
I wonder if we care

thanks for your patience
thanks for your endless support
my love
