01 LIVING EACH DAY LIKE YOU'RE ALREADY DEAD

Raise up the ghosts of the dead - I won't die like them
Push past the point of raw emotion - I will breathe
Exist with a broken spirit - I will die complete
Ignore what the angel's say
Enjoy that special place where the demons speak to me

I Wont, pick out the lining of my coffin yet
Unless I'm sure this color satin is me
Better yet go with crushed velvet
That way I'll be damned sure to enjoy eternity

My daily life writes the eulogy
Engraved on tombstone diaries
Laid to rest by the passing of time
Seems to be that even love can die

And the rituals, that fade away
And the roses, that cease to be laid
And to me it clearly appears that we're already one foot in a very shallow grave

I will live with passion, you live like you're dead
I will live with passion, you live like you're dead

I will live with passion, as each day dies, are we living up to the next
Or passing on in the twilight

As each day dies
Are we living up to the next
Or passing on in the twilight?
As each day dies
Are we living up to the next
Or passing on in the twilight?

02 TULIPS ARE BETTER

Crystal clear I see the rose is frail
The thorns hide easily in its beauty
As I go to grasp it in my hand
My heart is torn, beating from my chest

Let me be captivated, by your beauty
Then let me fall from your grace
Unto my broken knees
Close my eyes so tightly, the tears are welling up
You aren't worth the waste of the salt or the water

Watching the sun play in your hair
And I couldn't really care, care any less about you
Watching the sun play in your hair
And I couldn't really care, care any less about you

Fuck all your false beauty
It was transparent just like your smile - liar
Your thorns caress my flesh
Crimson Drops on a snowy field - liar

I have watched you retrogress
I have seen what you've become - liar
Take your eyes off of me
Its funny how fast blue eyes fade gray - liar

Let me be captivated by your beauty
Then let me fall from your grace
Unto my broken knees
Close My eyes so tightly, the tears are welling up
You aren't worth the waste of the salt or the fucking water

And you are deceit

Just wither away, real beauty is forever, in you

Just wither away, real beauty is forever in you
Just wither away, real beauty is forever in you
Just wither away, real beauty is forever in you

03 A LETTER TO SOMEONE LIKE YOU

Why, why, why, why, why, why, why, why
Why, why, why, why, why, why, why, why???

Sometimes this beauty is choking me, but at least its your hands on my throat
Your lashes brush against my cheek, coupled with your breath on my neck
The world around you falls away, and I will still be there
I know my words are like daggers, but they cut me too

And I am sorry for all the fucked up things I say, I didn't mean it
And I never realized that I can be what I hate
Lets be happy with what we have, enjoy the beauty in these days
Sometimes we'll laugh, sometimes we'll scream
No one said caring was easy

I know there was a time when emotions felt like pulling teeth
Sometimes I felt so souless, I couldn't even look at me
It's pathetic to hate who you are and it feels like hell to change
But I'll be damned if I push you away

And I am sorry for all the fucked up things I say, I didn't mean it
And I never realized that I can be what I hate
Lets be happy with what we have, enjoy the beauty in these days
Sometimes we'll laugh, sometimes we'll scream
No one said caring was easy

I remember when my dreams were dying
And I damned the sun, I damned the sun to pieces
I carved hateful thoughts into my chest, and then you took my hand
And nothing has ever felt the same
And nothing has ever, nothing has ever felt the same

NO.

04 TAKING BACK EVERY WORD THAT I SAID

Taking - back every - word that - I said
Taking - back every - word that - I said
You!

You were so euphoric I saw...the future in your eyes
A cascade of emotion brings me to...the summit of defeat
My trust was misplaced, like the truth...in a sea of lies
Your content barefoot on coals, then you're trapped inside
You're trapped inside....trapped inside

Trapped inside, coalesce distrust personifiied
Fear unrealized, will paint the future black as night
Just let go, have you felt what it is to fly
Soar above, the right path is never justified

You said they wouldn't ever affect you
You promised, and you lied
You were strong enough to make your own decisions
But evidently your own two feet just weren't enough to stand on
Tell me how I should feel after what you just said
Tell me how I should feel after what you just said

How should I feel? After what you just said?
Tell me how should I feel? After what, after what you just said?
How should I feel? After what you just said?
How should I feel? After what you said?

No.....

You are nothing! You mean nothing!
You are nothing! You mean nothing!

Just like a child, I wish I could close my eyes
And you would dissipate
Just like a child, I wish I could close my eyes
Let my tears evaporate

Please stay away from me
You've done far too much harm

05 SOMEONE'S STANDING ON MY CHEST

Starving, searching this barren wasteland
Trying, to grasp being this alone
Pleading for a breath of fresh air
Someone's standing on my chest
Dying, I'm asphyxiating myself

I kill myself

Break myself, slave to my weakness, choke on my words
Oh I'm drowning, I feel so alone
Break myself, slave to my weakness, choke on my words
The lights are on and I wish I was home
Break myself, slave to my weakness, choke on my words
Oh I'm drowning I feel so alone
Break myself, slave to my weakness, choke on my words
The lights are on and I wish I was home

My lips, are screaming pretty nothings
My ears, are bleeding for want of words
Fuck words, I need actions
Hope, has left me fucking shattered
Someone's standing on my chest
Alone, Would be a pleasant change from here

Alone

How do you gauge loneliness
How do you gauge loneliness
How do you gauge loneliness
Have you ever felt so alone

Alone

It feels like the light will never reach me here
I'm choking back my longing for shed tears
So strangulated by my lonesome fears
Please don't worry too much
It only hurts when I breathe

It only hurts (when I breathe)
It only hurts every time I breathe

I breathe...
