Track Name: someday
in many ways they'll miss the good old days
someday, someday
yeah it hurts to say but i want you to stay
sometimes, sometimes
When we was young oh man did we have fun
always, always
promises they break before they're made
sometimes, sometimes

oh, naia says im lacking in depth
i will do my best
you say you wanna stand by my side
darling your head's not right
i see alone we stand together we fall apart
yeah, I think I'll be alright
i'm working so I won't have to try so hard
tables they turn sometimes.
oh someday.
i ain't wasting no more time.

trying, trying.


and now my fears, they come to me in threes
so I, sometimes
say "fate my friend", you say the strangest things
i find, sometimes

oh, My ex says i'm lacking in depth
say I will try my best
you say you wanna stay by my side
darling your head's not right
i see alone we stand together we fall apart
yeah, i think I'll be alright
i'm working so i won't have to try so hard
tables they turn sometimes.
oh someday

i ain't wasting no more time
Track Name: there's too much love
i could hang about and burn my fingers
i've been waiting out here waiting for something to start
you think i'm thoughtless to a t
my manners set impeccably
but underneath i am the same as you

i could dance all night like i'm a soul boy
but you know i'd rather drag myself across the dance floor
i feel like dancing on my own
where know one knows me and where i
can cause offense just by the way i look

and when i come to blows
when i am numbering my foes
just hope that you are on my side my dear

but it's best to finish as i started
with my face head down
staring at the brown formica
it's safer not to look around
i can't hide my feelings from you now
there's too much love to go around these days

you say i've got another face
that's not a fault of mine these days
i'm brutal honest and afraid of you

it's safer not to look around
i can't hide my feelings from you now
i'm brutal honest and afraid of you

you say i've got another face
that's not a fault of mine these days
i'm brutal honest and afraid of you
Track Name: youth of america
youth of america
living in the jungle
fighting for survival
with the wrong place to go

youth of america
the wall is all around
the walls are crumbling
tumbling down on you

it is time we rectify this now
we've got to heal it it now
got to heal it now now now
woo

well they attack you from the left side
down the right side
down the middle till you don't know who you are

well stick around cuz you don't really matter
they're tryin' put ya
6 feet under the ground

it is time we rectify this now
we got to feel it now
got to feel it now, now, now
woo

it is time we rectify this now
we've got to heal it now
got to heal it now, now, now
woo

rich
the rich get richer, and the poor get poorer
this place is no existence
i don't want to be born here again
do you want to be born here again
this place is no existence
living in the jungle
beware the guys in disguise
fighting for survival
living in the jungle fighting for survival
fighting for survival
they attack you from the right side
down the left side
down the middle till you don't know who you are
well stick around cuz you don't really matter
we've got to heal it now
got to heal it now, now, now
woo

youth of america
youth of america
youth youth youth youth youth youth youth youth youth
Track Name: in my room
i stand alone and watch the clock
i only wait for it to stop
the doors are shut
and all the windows locked
the only sound is from the clock
i sit and wait alone
in my room
and in my room against the wall
there is a picture very small
a photograph i took some years ago
it shows a picture of a room i know
i sit and wait alone
in my room
Track Name: half of what
the shape of your head is a twist of the truth
the skulls on these walls are they connected to you?
the stars are like eyes coming out of the mist
temperatures rise like an easter morning sun
it's not something you learn
it's something you do
sometimes i wonder if my other half is you

cuz i am only half
of what i am
...and half of that is what...
lies can do
...and where the rest is...
i don't know
...and i'm not sure if i want to know

back on my own
it took me this long
to get to the top of this misty mountainside you're on
now i can see where it's all been leading to
the skulls on these walls
are they connected to you?

walking with you down a slippery slope
and she said...
"if i were the sun you'd be the world i'd shine onto"

cuz i am only half
of what i am
...and half of that is what
lies can do
...and where the rest is...
i don't know
...and i'm not sure if i want to know
Track Name: mother
mother
you had me
but i never had you
i wanted you
you didn't want me
father
you left me
but i never left you
i needed you
you didn't need me
children
don't do what i have done
i couldn't walk
and i tried to run
so i just gotta tell you
good bye
momma don't go
daddy come home
Track Name: cicatriz esp
Do you recall it's name
As it suggested beck and call
This face and heel
Will drag your halo through the mud
Ash of Pompeii
Erupting in a statues of dust
Shrouded in veils
Because these handcuffs hurt to much
Scalping these ticketless applause
And when they drag the lake there is nothing left at all
Seutured contusion
Beyond the ant hills of the dawning of this plague
Said I've lost my way
Even if this cul de sac would pay
To reach inside a vault whatever be the cost
Sterling clear
Blackend ice
When they drag the lake there's nothing left at all
I've defected
Seutuerd contusion
Beyond the ant hills of the dawning of this plague
Said I've lost my way
Even if this cul de sac did pay
To reach inside a vault whatever be the cost
Sterling clear
Blackend ice
When they drag the lake there's nothing left at all
Undefended
Beyond the ant hills of the dawning of this plague
Said I've lost my way
Even if this cul de sac did pay
Beyond the ant hills of said I've lost my way
Even if you reach inside a vault whatever be the cost
Sterling clear
Blackend ice
When they drag the lake there's nothing left at all
This is my last insicion
The stitches have defected
Drag me a vessel
Coveting all you know see and hear
This is my last incision
The stitches have fallen off
Sterling clear blackened ice
And when they drag they lake there's nothing left at all
Undefended
Track Name: hyacinth house
what are they doing in the hyacinth house?
what are they doing in the hyacinth house
to please the lions, yeah, this day?
i need a brand new friend who doesn't trouble me
i need a brand new friend who doesn't bother me
i need someone, yeah, who doesn't need me
i see the bathroom is clear
i think that someone is here
i'm sure that someone is following me
oh yeah....
why did you throw the jack of hearts away?
why did you throw the jack of hearts away?
it was the only card in the deck that i had left to play.
...and i'll say it again
i need a brand new friend
...and i'll say it again
i need a brand new friend
...and i'll say it again
i need a brand new friend
the end
