1. Fur Cue (3:47)
It’s all too revealing
Your words are deceiving
I can’t let you get in my way
I sense all your actions are meant as distractions
You must know I won’t play your game
Fake, you’re more than I can take
And something’s gonna break
Get out of my head
No shame, you’re passing all the blame
And nothing’s gonna change
Get out of my head

You made me realize that it’s all a lie
And it comes as no surprise
Stay for a while
Stay ‘cause you make me smile
There’s no compromise

I’m sick of pretending
The thoughts are unending
I can’t let you get in my way (there’s no way home)
I’m no longer bending
My mind set is mending
And now I have something to say (deny me)
Fake, you’re more than I can take
And something’s gonna break
Get out of my head
No shame, you’re passing all the blame
And something’s gonna change
Get out of my head

You made me realize that it’s all a lie
And it comes as no surprise
Stay for a while
Stay ‘cause you make me smile
There’s no compromise

Fake, you’re more than I can take
And something’s gonna break
Get out of my head
Shame, you’re passing all the blame
And nothing’s gonna change
Get out of my head

You made me realize that it’s all a lie
And it comes as no surprise
Stay for a while
Stay ‘cause you make me smile
I see no compromise

Stay for a while
Stay ‘cause you make me smile
I see no compromise
Stay for a while
Stay ‘cause you make me smile
There’s no compromise
2. No Resolution (3:08)
I'm doing fine
Even though you preyed upon my mind
Been living a lie
Seems every day it eats me

Yeah, and there's no resolution
Yeah, but it makes me think twice
Yeah, and I need retribution
You don't get it then I'm your pollution

I'm breathing a sigh
In passing away I'll take my time
I'm still getting high
I love the way it feeds me

Yeah, and there's no resolution
Yeah, but it makes me think twice
Yeah, and I need retribution
Just don't get it then I'm the solution now

You can't keep me down my friend
You can't keep me down my friend

I'm doing fine
Even though tһіѕ hatred plagues mу mind
I'm living a lie
But I love the way you need me

Yeah, and there's no resolution
Yeah, but it makes me think twice
Yeah, and I need retribution
You don't get it then I'm your pollution

Yeah, and there's no resolution
Yeah, but it makes me think twice
Yeah, and I need retribution
You don’t get it then I'm the solution now

3. Here and Now (3:55)
This fear has me chilled down to the bone
And I have been haunted by these things I still have left to say
I'm weary of fighting this alone
So tired of holding onto strings much better left to fray

And I said
Hear me now
Here and now I'm calling
Memories wear me down
And this seems so complicated
When all I want is just the truth

I'm wilted and faded after all
Too strung out and burnt out to be half the man that I could be
I'll never belong inside your world
So black out the sun and leave me to play out the same old tragedy

And I said
Hear me now
Here and now I'm calling
Memories wear me out
And this seems too complicated
When all I want is just the truth

Hear me now
Here and now I'm calling
Memories wear me out
And this seems too complicated
When all I want is just the truth

You're my savior after all
Use your flame to guide me home
And then lay your hand on me

And I said
Hear me now
Here and now I'm calling
Memories wear me down
And this seems so complicated
When all I want is just the truth

Hear me now
Here and now I'm calling
Memories wear me out
And this seems too complicated
When all I want is a part of you
4. Country Song (3:49)
Well I can't stand to look at you now
This revelation's out of my hands
Still I can't bear the thought of you now
This complication's leaving me scared
Stay when you think you want me
Pray when you need advice
Hey keep your sickness off me tryin to get through
Blame all your weakness on me
Shame that I'm so contrite
Hey keep your fingers off me why can't I get through
You think you have the best of intentions
I cannot shake the taste of blood in my mouth
(Hey) I keep on thinking that it's
(Hey) all done and all over now (whoa)
You keep on thinking you can save me save me
(Hey) My ship is sinking but it's
(Hey) All good and I can go down (whoa)
You've got me thinking that the party's all over
Well I can't stand to be with myself
This liberation's seemingly rare
And I can't stand the taste of your mouth
This sublimation's out of my hands
You stay 'cause you think you want me
Pray when you need advice
Hey keep your sickness off me I'm tryin to get through
Shame you cant take this from me
Bane on the empty mind
Hey keep your fingers off me why can't I get through
(Hey) I keep on thinking that it's
(Hey) all done and all over now (whoa)
You keep on thinking you can save me save me
(Hey) My ship is sinking but it's
(Hey) All good and I can go down (whoa)
You've got me thinking that the party's all over
Lay down Just stay down
Lay down because I am trying to get through
Say what you want but you're not gonna win this time
Take what you want but just leave me alive
Say what you want but you're not gonna win this time
Take what you want but just leave me alive
(Hey) I keep on thinking that it's
(Hey) all done and all over now (whoa)
You keep on thinking you can save me save me
(Hey) My ship is sinking but it's
(Hey) All good and I can go down (whoa)
Still you believe that we can start it all over
Lay down Just stay down
Lay down because the party's all over
Lay down Just stay down
Lay down because I am trying to get through
5. Master of Disaster (4:18)
Steal my sight and then
Fill my mind with foreign words
to keep me wanting
And speak now child
And chill my heart with all the hurt
and keep me suffering
All these promises
Lectures and bold face lies
All these promises
Born of a shameless mind

Leave me to heal on my own
With those empty cool promises
You stole my dreams
Yeah all my dreams I'm dead inside
Please let me feel my way home
Without reason or compromise
You stole my dream
Now all i believe is dead inside
Be quick now child
And soil my bed with all your dirt
Just keep me suffering
All these promises
Lectures and bold face lies
All these promises
Born of a shameless mind

Leave me to heal on my own
With those empty cool promises
You stole my dreams

Yeah all my dreams I'm dead inside
Please let me feel my way home
Without reason or compromise
You stole my dreams
Now all i believe is dead inside

Don't let me sleep
Take me back
But don't let me be comfortable
If I get too weak
Cut no slack
But don't let me be comfortable

Don't let me sleep
Take me back
But don't let me be comfortable

Leave me to heal on my own
With those empty cool promises
You stole my dreams
Yeah all my dreams I'm dead inside
Please let me feel my way home
Without reason or compromise
You stole my dreams
Now all I believe is dead inside
If you say you're alive
When you pray you're a liar
Oh you'll hate when I'm right
And you lay in the fire
6. Tonight (3:44)
I'm not gonna waste this
This opportunity's mine
I'm sick of complaining
About a beautiful life
How did we get here
Did we forget all the things inside
And how do we stay here
Do we embrace all the things tonight
I feel so alive tonight
You got me feeling sublime
I want to yell it from the roof top down
Until it's over
And we're older
For my entertainment
You tell a whimsical lie
To keep me complacent
You knock me down with a smile
How did we get here
How do we pretend everything's alright
And how do we stay here
Do we erase all the fear inside
I feel so alive tonight
You got me feeling sublime
I want to yell it from the roof top down
Until it's over
And we're older
Like sugar and cyanide
These walls are going to collide
I want to yell it from the roof tops down
Until it's over
And we're older
So take me
But go slow
Let me hide somwhere I know
And let this
Seed grow
Until we finally call this home
So take me
But go slow
Let me hide somwhere I know
And let this
Seed grow
Until we finally call this home
If I was to die tonight
Would it tear you apart
Would you yell it from the rooftops down
Until it's over
And you're older
I feel so alive tonight
You've got me feeling sublime
I want to yell it from the rooftop down
Until it's over
And we're older
Like sugar and cyanide
These walls are going to collide
I want to yell it from the roof tops down
Until it's over
And we're older
7. Pass Slowly (3:27)
i think it's time for a change
cause things feel out of touch
and i watch you walk away again
well this feels like too much
and thins won't go my way
now i'll have to fade away my friend
so pass slowly
and carry me down
then render me lonely
when you're not around
i need to shake off this pain
but courage takes too much
so i have to walk away again
oh god i miss your touch
the way you keep me safe
i won't let you fade away my friend
remember me only
oh yeah
can't you stay awhile longer
won't you stay
god please stay
and pass slowly
and whittle me down
render me lonely
and let me down easy
8. Fade Out (3:54)
Fade out like a photograph
Just a memory to forget
You burn black like a cigarette
I’ll discard you when I’m done

You break down when you need the rest
What a selfish way to drown
Then lay down with the thief you met
And enjoy the pride you’ve won

So let loose those tears, darling
Cause I’ll turn my back

So tell me the story
How you lose this all I’m guessin’
But don’t tell me you’re sorry
I’m through with it all
And I won’t be back again

I’m burnt out on your etiquette
How you caponize the son
Then lie down with another one
As you canonize yourself

So let loose those tears, darling
Cause I’ll turn my back

So tell me the story
How you lose this all I’m guessin’
But don’t tell me you’re sorry
I’m through with it all
And I won’t be back again

You’re breaking all the rules
And killing all my self-esteem that’s left
You take me for a fool
You’re killing all my self-esteem that’s left

So tell me the story
How you lose this all I’m guessin’
You’re looking so worried
Can you feel it come undone?
Such a pitiful story
But I finally learned my lesson
Don’t tell me you’re sorry
I am through with it all
And I won’t be back again
9. Roses (4:17)
You feed this disease which you shelter underneath the scars
and dream of bitter themes rendered helpless by those wicked charms,
but please don't believe when I say its hard to breathe

[Chorus]
Save me even as you break me
Everytime you rape me
Leave me coming all undone
Praise me turn your back and hate me
Everytime you waste me
Keep me underneath your thumb

You bleed on the sheets
Whisper softly how you love the stars
Then plead on your knees
Pledge your promises to do no harm,
but please just let me be
I still find it hard to breathe

[Chorus x2]
Save me even as you break me
Every time you rape me
Leave me coming all undone
Praise me turn your back and hate me
Everytime you waste me
Keep me underneath your thumb

Save me don't turn your back and break me
Everytime you rape me
Leave me coming all undone
10. Down (3:57)
Well you can take back all the smiles
I realize that you choke me out
As you fill my body with doubt
Save all that’s mine
You feel like you can push me round
And rub my face in the ground

With every lesson that you feel is mine
You’ve got to throw it all upon me
Why’d you have to put me down?
And every breath you take is killing mine
You can’t just throw it all upon me
Why’d you have to put me down?

Wish I could take back all that’s mine
I realize now I’m so run down
But I know I’ll figure it out
Please stay awhile
I really think I need this more than I have ever implied

With every lesson that you feel is mine
You’ve got to throw it all upon me
Why’d you have to put me down?
And every breath you take is killing mine
You can’t just throw it all upon me
Why’d you have to put me down?

I guess I’m just another distraction
But who can blame me for wanting it more?

With every lesson that you feel is mine
You’ve got to throw it all upon me
Why’d you have to put me down?
And every breath you take is killing mine
You can’t just throw it all upon me
Why’d you have to put me down?

And every inch you take is suicide
Why’d you fuckin’ doubt me?
Why’d you have to put me down?
And every breath you take is killing mine
Why’d you fuckin’ doubt me?
Why’d you have to put me down?
11. Desire for Need (3:330
It's so depressing how you wag your tongue
And name with words as you please
I'm second guessing you're the chosen one
Think you can cure my disease?

You wear out, and lay claim to my mind
Get out, I'm begging you please

You're so excited to be
You've got me on my knees
Betray desire for me
But I'm giving up
Yea I'm giving up

As a confession you reach for your gun
And then cry a hole in my sleeve
It's over-rated kissing you for fun
Now all I taste is the sleaze

You wear out, and lay claim to my mind
Get out, I'm begging you please

You're so excited to be
You've got me on my knees
Betray desire for me
But I'm giving up
Yea I'm giving up

You're so excited to be
You've got me on my knees
Betray desire for me
But I'm giving up
Yea I'm giving up

You've got me right where you want me
You've got me feeling so small
You've got me right where you want me
But I'll never deliver myself
I'll never deliver myself

You wear out, and lay claim to my mind
Get out, I'm begging you please

You're so excited to be
You've got me on my knees
Betray desire for me
But I'm giving up
Yea I'm giving up

You're so excited to be
You've got me on my knees
Betray desire for me
But I'm giving up
Yea I'm giving up
I'll never deliver myself
12. Forsaken (4:19)
Now I'll take the blame
So forget my name
Just close the blinds
So I can come down

I'm naked and shamed
Moth to the flame
Just take my hand
So we can both drown

I'll never believe in you again
I'll never forgive those things you said
My only relief is gone and dead
I'll never forsake myself again

The same sweet game
Your halo is a flame
Feel my heart race
And breathe a sad sigh

Let me wash away
And let go of the pain
Just look away
And turn a blind eye

I'll never believe in you again
I'll never forgive those things you said
My only relief is gone and dead
I'll never forsake myself again

I'll never believe in you again
I'll never forgive those things you said
My only relief is gone and dead
I'll never forsake myself again

So hold me down
If I feed I'm stronger
I don't feel no longer

So hold me down
If I feed I'm stronger
I don't feel no longer

So hold me down
If I feed I'm stronger
I don't feel no longer

I'll never believe in you again
I'll never forgive those things you said
My only relief is gone and dead
I'll never forsake myself again

I'll never believe in you again
I'll never forgive those things you said
My only relief is gone and dead
I'll never forsake myself again

I'll never believe in you again
I'll never forgive those things you said
My only relief is gone and dead
I'll never forsake myself again
