01 A SONG FOR THE OPTIMISTS

Blow the last candle out, let the wax harden
I wish I could stop crying, and I wish someone still loved me
Blow the last candle out, let the wax harden
I wish I could stop crying, and I wish someone still loved me

Just breathe and focus, how can I when the air is so cold...and empty
That my lungs froze right in my chest
I'll be honest, the silver linings are getting harder and harder...to manufacture
And the smiles are so difficult to fake

I'll be honest, the silver linings are getting harder and harder to manufacture
And the smiles are becoming so difficult to fake

What do I have to do, or who do I have to kill
To get what I want, what I need
What do I have to do, or who do I have to kill
To get what I want, what I need

Happiness is an emotion I was born to this world without,
Nothing pleases me, I cannot be satiated
Thru this toil I will breed my own distress and destroy my best hopes
Fuck up the only things (that I love)

I watched my aspirations crash to the ground on the backs of the angels that I've slain
But I meant so well, well I tried so hard
Gave everything of my soul, to what end.
To what end?

Desolation, desire, exhale, pass away
Desolation, desire, exhale, pass away
Desolation, desire, exhale, and pass away

02 DILATED

Yesterday I forgot to breathe for like the 6th time this week
Maybe it was the pink cloud strafed sky that changed my mind and brought me back
Seems like every day it's kill or be killed...

(With all this anger, we cannot progress)

With all this anger there is no time to inhale and progress
And catch the smell of something that you once knew
Cause everyday it's bear the load or break, when will it be too much (for me to take)

Have you ever stopped raised your face up to the sun and screamed
Let it out, exhale the pain
That strangulates your soul, when will I be free?
When will I be free, when will I be free?

My lungs take in the fragrance of remorse, what is the cost, am I living,
If you let your lungs fill with pain, then you will drown, then you will drown in your own regret.
I'm drowning in my own regret

My arms feel so numb, my heart palpitates missing a beat.
The blood freezing in my veins
The taste of rust in my mouth, so today I just threw it all away
I just threw it all away

Though the light burns my eyes, I will not be blind
If you blink you could miss so much, please don't ever close your eyes

03 AIN'T LOVE GRAND

It's so hard to see when your eyes are rolling in the back of your head
It's even harder to speak when everything you say just comes out wrong

Gutted like a pig, all you want is the world to bleed
Someone somewhere stole your desire
The pain akin, to being punched in the throat, and stabbed in the chest

You would rather bleed than be without her
Gone are the tender whispers, dancing in your ears
Replaced with lackluster memories you cry, your screams play in your empty room

It's so hard to see when your eyes are rolling in the back of your head
It's even harder to speak when everything you say just comes out wrong

Your bed swallows you whole as the days bleed together, torment on the lips of a loved one
And if you try hard enough, you can almost taste her, feel her pass and scream
OH GOD WHY ME

You would rather bleed than be without her
Gone are the tender whispers, dancing in your ears
Replaced with lackluster memories you cry, your screams play in your empty room

It's so hard to see when your eyes (are rolling in the back of your head)
It's even harder to speak when everything you say (just comes out wrong)

04 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 angels say, enjoy that special place where the demons speak to me

I won't pick out the lining of my coffin yet, unless I am sure that color satin is me
Better yet, go with crushed velvet, that way I'll be damn sure to enjoy eternity

My daily life writes the eulogy, engraved on tombstone diaries,
Laid to rest by the passing of time, seems to me 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 love with passion, you live like you're dead
I will love with passion, you live like you're dead
I will love with passion

As each day dies, are we living on to the next or passing on in the twilight
As each day dies, are we living on to the next or passing on in the twilight
As each day dies, are we living on to the next or passing on in the twilight

05 DEANNE THE ARSONIST

Coward -
The next time you want to fuck me over, stab me in the front
Can I still see my future in your eyes
Or can I picture myself still dead in your embrace
And your cruel crimson smile, kills me

No one could have their moments free from your withering touch.
Fuck off, like you're the only one that has ever cried or been broken by love
Spare me your pity party drunk off your own misfortunes
Wallowing in your blissful melancholy

Can you taste my blood. You knew that this would kill me.
But you carried on and on, with your selfish shit
Everyone cared about you, why couldn't you
Instead your greed compelled you to steal other silver linings

Burnt down my world, you killed my hope
Spread out the ash and walked away
How could you just close off your eyes
Turn tail and run, you are the greatest coward

Come on!
Damn right I am still pissed!
Next time I see you we will see who has the upper hand!
Kiss my fist! Taste the floor! Tired of your games!

FUCK OFF, GOODBYE!!

06 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

Break myself, slave to my weakness, choke on my words
Oh I'm drowning and 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 and 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 as left me fucking shattered, someone's standing on my chest
Alone would be a pleasant change from here

GO

How do you gauge loneliness
How do you gauge loneliness
How do you gauge loneliness
HOW YOU EVER FELT SO ALONE

It feels like the light will never reach me here,
I am 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
This only hurts me when I breathe
This only hurts when I breathe

07 AT LEAST I KNOW I'M A SINNER

Lift up a stone and you will find him,
cherish the beauty in the world around us
Not in buildings or crosses made by man

Judge me, fuck you, stop playing God,
Your forked tongue prophecies
Carelessly caressing wounds of the weak
People like you should be crucified,
Then maybe, just maybe you would have an idea of what you are talking about.

My only solace is that one day,
Judgment will come for the wicked, then we will see who burns
My only solace is that one day,
Judgment will come for the wicked, then we will see who burns

Raise up your heads, unclasp your hands,
Your weakness makes me tremble
True strength comes from within
And we were given this life to live,
Not exist under standards, set by some bullshit rule book

What prayers of yours, were ever answered, by degrading others
Spare me your biblical back peddling nonsense
For the people that you've hurt, and the being you dishonor,
Your fall from grace, will finally justify my means

Judge me, and now you are me, and what's worse:
You are now a traitor to your God
Tell me Judas, how does it feel to be looked down upon?
Sinners like you should be strung up from the highest tree!

My only solace is that one day,
Judgment will come for the wicked, then we will see who burns
My only solace is that one day,
Judgment will come for the wicked, then we will see who burns

Raise up your heads, unclasp your hands,
Your weakness makes me tremble
True strength comes from within
And we were given this life to live,
Not exist under standards, set by some bullshit rule book

You judged me, and now you are me
Stop playing God
You judged me, and now you are me
Stop playing God

08 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
I couldn't really care, care any less about you
Watching the sun play in your hair
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
Please take your eyes off of me
It's 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 water
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
Just wither away

09 A VAMPIRE'S LAMENT

I am the walking dead heartbreaker, my apologies
I'm happy you'll never understand what it's like to be
T trapped under six feet of solid glass
I can see out, but no one gets in

Screaming at this prison, I've locked myself into,
I'm sorry I'm still breathing and that I'll kill again
But the loneliness is too much for me to handle
But the taste for fresh blood, pushes me on

I told myself the constant pain could ease the tension burning inside
But the nights were cold and the days dragged to weeks,
I will die, here alone I will die

The fear of romance, the pain of living
The joy of sorrow, the strength of your forgiving
The fear of romance, the pain of living
The joy of sorrow, the strength of your forgiving

Oh God help me, I'm so tired,
But in my dreams the wolves eat out my soul
Oh God help me, I'm so frightened,
But in my dreams wolves tear out my heart

I used to be golden, a saint in a time of sorrow,
But then the turning came and I kissed the sun goodbye,
Don't you get it, it's always darker in my eyes
The screams of my brothers egging me on

10 LIP GLOSS AND BLACK

If I gave you pretty enough words
Could you pain a picture of us that works
An emphasis on function rather than design
Aren't you tired cause I will carry you, on a broken back
And blown out knees, I have been where you are for a while..

Aren't you tired of being weak?
Such rage that you could scream, or the stars right out of the sky
And destroy the prettiest starry night every evening that I die

I am exhumed, just a little less human, and a lot more bitter and cold
I am exhumed, just a little less human, and a lot more bitter and cold
I am exhumed, just a little less human, and a lot more bitter and cold
I am exhumed, just a little less human

After all these images of pain, have cut right thru you,
I will kiss every scar, and weep you are not alone
Then I'll show you that place in my chest where my heart still tries to beat
It still tries to beat

Aren't you tired of being weak?
Such rage that you could scream, or the stars right out of the sky
And destroy the prettiest starry night every evening that I die

Live, love, burn, die
Live, love, burn, die
Live, love, burn, die
Live, love, burn, die
