Track Name: Should Have
I should have felt it by the second you took my breath away, that wouldn't be at all that you'd take.
I should have felt it, I should have felt you digging for my heart just to use it for play.
They told me not to meet you, they told me not to kiss you. Well I guess I should have listened to them anyway.
They say "You're playing the fool", they say "She'll terrorize you".
They were right and now I'm trapped and I can't escape!
You stole my money, broke up my family.
Now I'm here alone with you and I've got nowhere to go.
Bring other men home and leave me alone. Now you hold my heart hostage cause it pleases you.
They told me not to meet you, they told me not to kiss you. Well I guess I should have listened to them anyway.
They say "You're playing the fool", they say "She'll terrorize you".
They were right and now I'm trapped, I can't escape!
Here I lay in my grave and I wait.
Broken arms, broken legs, and I pray.
That you'll let me go or just blow me away.
So I wait.
Track Name: Loneliness Lies
There's a place out of the town where screeching vultures fly.
There's a place out of the town where wild wolves cry.
Ooh ooh ooh, the beating of my heart.
Ooh ooh ooh, will tear you apart.

There's a place locked away, only blind men can see.
there's a place locked away that makes babies scream.
Ooh ooh ooh, the beating of my heart.
Ooh ooh ooh, will tear you apart.
Where lone-loneliness lies with another.

There's a place in her eye's that calm the raging sea.
There's a place in her eye's meant only for me.
Ooh ooh ooh, the beating of my heart.
Ooh ooh ooh, will tear you apart.
Where lone-loneliness lies, where lone-loneliness lies with another.
Track Name: Armchair Beauty
Well I'm an armchair beauty with negative eyesight.
You think it's kind of funny till you're turning off your night light.
Well I'm bouncing out my body cause it's time to react now.
And you're getting good vibrations from my Beach Boys album.
I'm screaming silently so no body can hear me.
I wrote this in my sleep but you wouldn't believe me.
Now I'm digging in my pockets for some sort of advice now.
And you're holding private meetings 'bout my intelligence now.
Well I'm an armchair beauty with negative eyesight.
Well I'm an armchair beauty with negative eyesight.
Well I'm an armchair beauty with negative eyesight...
Track Name: Long Way From Home
Your heart starts pounding like it's lost all it's steam.
Your short breath tightens and you're ready to scream.
You're a long way from home.
You can't believe the things that happened to you.
She's long gone left you and he's breaking up too.
You're a long way from home.
You're a long way from home my love.
Where the lonely heart aches rome.
Now you feel like giving up the ghost and let strangers bury your bones.
You'll fight with passion and you'll fight to the death. A melt down masquerade just catching your breath.
You're a long way from home.
But now you move on, that's what moving on's for.
And hard times come again no more.
You're a long way from home.
You're a long way from home my love.
Where the lonely heart aches rome.
Now you feel like giving up the ghost and let strangers bury your bones.
Track Name: You Wont Wait
You dropped me off on a desert road and left me in the dust all alone.
Well I know you left me here to die, but I won't help but think and wonder why.
So please turn around (you won't wait, you won't wait, you won't wait)
Cause it's too late to catch up with you now. So turn around. (you won't wait, you won't wait, you won't wait)
Your love was like a roller coaster ride. We both sat down side by side. We flu up and down that track and when it stopped you were in the front and I was in the back.
So please turn around (you won't wait, you won't wait, you won't wait)
Cause it's too late to catch up with you now. So turn around. (you won't wait, you won't wait, you won't wait)
Your love was like a roaring fire. It started out small and then went wild.
You burned my heart with those flaming eyes and tossed my ashes to the sky.
So please turn around (you won't wait, you won't wait, you won't wait)
Cause it's too late to catch up with you now. So turn around. (you won't wait, you won't wait, you won't wait)
Track Name: While I'm Alone
Regardless of the offers she handed me
I’m not open to any opinion
She crosses the line of hypocrisy
Friends and family have been abandon
Oo wooh oh

Wishing for a life full of hope and peace
I’m melting my bones with a passion
The face in the mirror is taunting me
Hold me hostage with nothing to ransom
Oo wooh oh

And I…. am hoping you come over soon
To sa…ve me from this doom that haunts me while…
I’m alone

Staring through darkness I fool my eyes
Watching ghosts dance around my bedroom
Killing my time with these promised lies
Trading talent for spooks and gloom
Oo wooh oh

And I…. am hoping you come over soon
To sa…ve me from this doom that haunts me while…
I’m alone

Help me out of this grave that I’m digging
Help me out of this cave that keeps crumbling
Help me out of this grave that I’m digging
Help me OOooOOooOOooOut

And I…. am hoping you come over soon
To sa…ve me from this doom that haunts me while…
I’m alone
Track Name: Heather
I have a friend who’s name is heather
We blow things up when we’re together
She has a special way of showing
Romantic interest for another
Rip you apart, she’ll break your heart, and leave you screamin’… yeaooow!

I know a guy who’s name is stone
Always wanted to be alone
At night he’d like to sit and stare
At people in their underwear
Well he was caught, they called the cops, I heard the sirens…

There is this couple down the street
There making dirty looks at me
Well I don’t know the reason why
But I can always hear them fight
There’ll be a smash and then a slam then you can hear them… huh huh huh

I have a friend who’s name is heather
Track Name: The Creation
It’s definitely, gonna ruin all the work we’ve done so far
This happens to be a problem
But still we move on, because it’s science there’s always a trial and error bit
At least in theory, we solved it

We brought it to life but what now
It’s coming tonight for us all
It’s mande up of parts of every idea and every emotion that we ever felt
But now it’s been switched to kill

Can’t run away, it’s locked on us, our blood’s it’s tracking device
This happens to be a problem
So we’ll try to hide in every dark and lonely place that we can find
And then we’ll just wait till Armageddon

We brought it to life but what now
It’s coming tonight for us all
It’s mande up of parts of every idea and every emotion that we ever felt
But now it’s been switched to kill

We brought it to life but what now
It’s coming tonight for us all
It’s mande up of parts of every idea and every emotion that we ever felt
But now it’s been switched to kill
Track Name: Could That Be You
Will someone come out and save me
From these demons that drag me down
And bury me deep into the ground

Will someone come out and take me
Away from these dead end dreams
When waking up feels like a sigh of relief

I feel like I’m loosing balance
I’m zoning out on these empty walls
That slowly tip over till they fall

Will someone come out and find me
And pull these covers off of my head
That hold me down to this old bed

Cause I’ve been hoping for a heart break
I’ve been dying for a panic attack
Where are the feelings in this body
Is there any turning back
Cause I want someone to touch me
I wanna feel it in my soul
Could that be you?

I think I’ve been decomposing
My blood has become stagnant
These empty eyes loosing intent

I’m like a zombie without love
A walking corpse without feelings
Is there a cure for this disease

Cause I’ve been hoping for a heart break
I’ve been dying for a panic attack
Where are the feelings in this body
Is there any turning back
Cause I want someone to touch me
I wanna feel it in my soul
Could that be you?
Track Name: Undulate
Oh I hear you crying again
Like rain drops falling out your eyes
And drip off of your skin

Oh our world is crumbling down
The monsters have come out of their hiding places
Into our mouths

Our love grows cold
This is what I’m told

Darkness creeps in
Oh here I lie again

Oh this game has became to old
The board is torn and worn
Pieces shattered on our bear foot floor

Oh these scares are getting deeper
The pain of broken hearts ungulate
Through our bodies like the ocean
When the moon drifts too close

Our love grows cold
This is what I’m told

Darkness creeps in
Oh here I lie again

Our love grows cold
This is what I’m told

Darkness creeps in
Oh here I lie again
