Track Name: Parasites
Scars fade but memories don’t
No, I was hoping for a more metaphorical bone to throw
I was hoping for something but not like this
No, all the shots that I take all tend to miss

We only cover up our scars
So we can open them and feel each other's pain in the dark
The way I see it it can not be fixed
No matter how well you wear that tenderness

You wear it so well
You wear it so well

Troubled times that the shadows cannot hide
From these lives we lead as parasites
I would have saved myself if I’d known
That in the end I’m not alone
We are never on our own
And I hate it

Cars all flash as they pass me
While I’m passed out on my ass in the grass caring gently
About things that nobody thinks about
Sometimes I wonder why I don’t tell that
We only invented bars so we could have somewhere to go
Once we’ve lost the spark
But the spark grows sparse these days
Like the human heart away

But you wear it so well
You wear it so well

Troubled times that the shadows cannot hide
From these lives we lead as parasites
I would have saved myself if I’d known
That in the end I’m not alone
We are never on our own

Troubled times that the shadows cannot hide
From these lives we lead as parasites
I would have saved myself if I’d known
That in the end I’m not alone
We are never on our own
And I hate it
Yeah I hate it
And I hate it
We’re parasites
Track Name: Streetlights
Settling on mended shores
I’ll never settle any of your broken scores
Well never mind
Hate me 'till I hate myself
Hate me like there's no one else

Wrap yourself in other’s arms
I never meant to cause them any pain or harm
Well hope to hell
Hate me like I hate myself
Hate me like there's no one else

Sublimate my heart for you
I feel hollowed out now
Medicate myself for you
I don’t feel left out

Ghosts and games come out tonight
Tell of them that none of them are worth your time
Well darling please
Take it out on someone else
Take it out and I’ll forget

Play with matches burn the house
There's nothing left to ever put the fire out
Well don’t be scared
Take it out on someone else
Take it out and I’ll forget

Sublimate my heart for you
I feel hollowed out now
Medicate myself for you
I don’t feel left out now

Sublimate my heart for you
I feel hollowed out now
Medicate myself for you
I don’t feel left out
Track Name: Let Me Down
I hear you in the distance
Shine a light, won’t you
Shine a light
Your voice keeps ringing distant
Shine a light, won’t you
Shine a light

Skies are falling
I realize now
I don’t know why
Your angel’s calling me
I should leave now
I can’t

I’ve got the very same reason, I need you
And all the dumb excuses that you make up too
I gotta let me down down easy, don’t you know me
You gotta let me down easy, don’t you know me

I see you in the distance
Shine a light, won’t you
Shine a light
Your eyes can look so distant
Say a word, won’t you
Say a word

Skies are falling
I realize now
I don’t know why
Your angel’s calling me
I should leave now
I can’t

I’ve got the very same reason, I need you
And all the dumb excuses that you make up too
You gotta let me down down easy, don’t you know me
Gotta let me down easy, don’t you know
don't you

Let me down easy don’t you know me
Don’t you know me
Don’t you know me
Track Name: Paper Flowers
Let me be your conscience
When your mind turns numb
Let me be there beside you
When you come undone

Paper flowers in the backyard
We can sit and watch them burn
Paper flowers in the backyard
We can sit and watch them burn

Give me all your anger
I don’t have enough
Lie to all the others
I will hold you up

Paper flowers in the backyard
We can sit and watch them burn
Paper flowers in the backyard
We can sit and watch them burn

Paper flowers in the backyard
We can sit and watch them burn
Paper flowers in the backyard
We can sit and watch them burn
Track Name: Waa-Haa!
Kickdrum to Polly
Thought I heard you speak
Kickdrum to Polly
But all my words are too weak
And I know, I know
What at all to do
Yeah I know, I know
How to get to you

'Cause I’m not leaving
‘Till you tell me that
I’m going to be okay
Baby strides for the rest of our lives
Or until the break of day
When it’s time I’ll go without a fight
Or until I hear you say no.

Kickdrum and Polly
That’s what it’s always been, yeah
Kickdrum and Polly
But where the fuck have you been?

And I know, I know
That I should be sorry
And I know, I know
That you’ve moved on already

And I’m not leaving
Until you tell me that
I’m going to be okay
Baby strides for the rest of our lives
Or until the break of day
When it’s time
I’ll go without a fight
Or until I hear you say no.
Track Name: Only, Hope
Just try a little bit
Just try a little bit more
I’ll take another hit
I’ll another hit more

So tell me baby
How’d I fall so far?
Come back to me
You barely left a scar
Wherever I go
I need to know you know

I can’t get rid of it
I can’t get rid of it, no
You can keep me out of it
I know what I can’t control

So tell me baby
How’d I fall so far?
Come back to me
You barely left a scar
Wherever I go
I need to know you know

So tell me baby
How’d I fall so far?
Come back to me
You barely left a scar
Wherever I go
I need to know you know
Track Name: I Don't Mind
Some days I feel I should run away
Sometimes the signs are just hard to find
Can’t seem to get my head on straight
You know that I, that I don’t mind

Yeah I’m alive, yeah I’m alive
Yeah I’m alright, yeah I’m alright
Come close and cut the rope that binds

Yeah I’m alive, yeah I’m alive
Yeah I’m alright, yeah I’m alright
Come close and cut the rope that binds

Some days I feel I should run away
Sometimes the signs are just hard to find
Can’t seem to get my head on straight
You know that I, that I don’t mind

Yeah I’m alive, yeah I’m alive
Yeah I’m alright, yeah I’m alright
Come close and cut the rope that binds

Yeah I’m alive, yeah I’m alive
Yeah I’m alright, yeah I’m alright
Come close and cut the rope that binds
Track Name: Pristine
I know about flying
I know about crying
I know about lying
So I guess you taught me well
I know about trying
‘Cause I recognize the smell

Don’t need sleep
To walk among the dead
I’m free, pretty please
Just let me wander off instead
His sheets on your bed
Everything’s pristine in your head
His food keeps you fed
Who’s left feeding me now that you’ve left?

Stay safe, stay calm
We didn’t save face, now it’s gone
Be still, that song
Has been playing in my head for so long
And I knew that the world away
Was not ever gonna wait for us anyway
I knew that you’d change
Everybody has to let go someday

Everybody has to let go
Everybody has to let go

Everybody has to let go
Everybody has to let go
