Track Name: Bad Creature
There's a voice inside my head
And it's got some big plans
There's a violence in my skin
And a war for me to win

All the ones since you have just made me depressed
I pressed the rage I got from you into their wounded little chests
They'll rest their hearts they'll move along and just be strong and pass the rage they got from me along onto the next poor boy they meet

They say I'm a bad bad creature and
I see that you've caught my fever yeah
That's why your veins are so damn cold
That's how the child in you grew old

There's a warmth to all the screams
That she pushed inside of me
It's got a smell that you can see
and a heartbeat you can breathe

At your next blink we'll be so old
Tired and sick but made of pure gold

Gold is all we'll ever need

All the ghosts since you have just made me depressed
I pressed the rage I got from you into their wounded little chests
They'll rest their hearts they'll move along and just be strong and pass the rage they got from me along onto the next poor boy they meet

They say I'm a bad bad creature and
I see that you've caught my fever yeah
That's why your veins are so damn cold
That's how the child in us grew old

Her ill makes me face
Her heart makes mine race
Her hate makes my drugs last
Masquerades as
War is a slow dance
Violence as romance
The suns are electric
My lies are eccentric

They say I'm a bad bad creature and
I see that you've caught my fever yeah
That's why your veins are so damn cold
That's how the child in you grew old
Track Name: Little Bag O' Tricks
Walkin' down a bad street at 1am
Looking for a demon instead I found a friend
He's got no dots or numbers next to his name

He's got nowhere to be
And he wants something from me
Gives me a smile
Full of yellow broken teeth
Then he led me to the jelly of the beast

Join the party and raise your glasses
Pour your waste on the hungry masses
Burn the bodies consume the ashes
We're not dead yet

I leave the bodies in the cracks where the old ones lay
Skin burnt like bubbles made of rotten clay
They all got big bloodshot red eyes for me

That's fine with me I'm just here to get my sick
A big evil in a little bag of tricks
Next time you see me I'll be fixed

Join the party and raise your glasses
Pour your waste on the hungry masses
Burn the bodies consume the ashes
We're not dead yet

Just Like our heads we'll let the good times roll
We'll chase old friends down strips of foil
We'll keep it up until we love or loath ourselves

Join the party and raise your glasses
Pour your waste on the hungry masses
Burn the bodies consume the ashes
We're not dead yet
Track Name: Narcotic Narcissist
Got no woman, got no faith in a god
They both said they bled a lot of blood for me but I ain't seen no blood at all
We pushed and we shoved and we bent to your will
Two sticky sticky sticky sticky stab wounds, oh yeah kill kill kill kill kill

Grow some skin
Cuz a madman's only mad cuz he blames the sad man being oh so bad
In his mirror
Windy sunlight on the coastline
What he loved the most, he hated most times
But he promised he'd be alright

I'm a Narcotic narcissist, yeah I really aint much but I try my best
I'm a super hero, yeah they call me dumpster boy
I need a side kick in my life with lips and hips so coy
Remember that time that I touched all your tattoos
Remember how we got stuck stuck like two two puppies made of glue

Grow some skin
Cuz a madman's only mad cuz he blames the sad man being oh so bad
In his mirror
Windy sunlight on the coastline
What he loved the most, he hated most times
But he promised he'd be alright

We got the wind on our side
Gracelessly ambling
Shamelessly rambling
As long as we got us we'll be alright
A big happy family
Of misfit anomalies
A cure ain't far from our minds
But we got some bills to pay
And some dreams to slay
One girl can ruin you for life
If she's careless with your heart
But You'll turn her into art

Keep telling yourself, keep telling yourself, I promise it helps, I promise it helps keep selling yourself keep selling yourself I promise

But he lied.

He said he'd be alright
Now he's filled with flies
Track Name: Friendly Strangers
Crash head first into a friendly stranger
The girl of my dreams eats bugs
And laughs at danger

Make love on a pile of vinyl
With heavy hearts we'll accept that it's final
Lick your favorite pages of your favorite book
Give that girl you long for an extra lusty look

Now breathe the air
Taste sweat and sin
Set fire to clothes
Exhume your toes your skin
Break bitter bread
With broken men
Now close your eyes
count back from ten

Make love on a pile of vinyl
With heavy hearts we'll accept that it's final
Lick your favorite pages of your favorite book
Give that girl you long for an extra lusty look

You're a silly meatbag
Once you understand that
Everything is way more funny
We're just meat computers
Kissing whoever's cuter
So burn your clothes and burn your money too

We're just baboons, we'll just be corpses soon

She ain't magic, but her eyes are full of spells
Everything we do is to distract us from ourselves
Don't call me tragic cuz my eyes are full of hell
Everything we do is to distract us from ourselves
She ain't magic, but her eyes are full of spells
Everything we do is to distract us from ourselves
Don't call me tragic cuz my eyes are full of hell
Everything we do is to distract us from the bad stuff

Everything we do we do for ourselves

But we're just baboons, we'll just be corpses soon
Track Name: Lilacs and Wine
(I'll drown you in) Lilacs and wine
to convince you that we'll be fine
They call you a demon
I call you weird sublime

Pretty when tipsy
She loves like a gypsy
And moves just like a witch
Skin smeared with ember
Cuz we are forever
And love is a simple wish

all that I know
Swimming in chocolate ether afterglow

Lilacs and wine
to convince you that we'll be fine
They call you a demon
I call you weird sublime

I'm Sloppy when sober
But I still want to know her
And break some promises
Lips smeared with ember
Cuz whiskey's forever
As tricksy as hobbitses

all that we are
Burning with sins as hot as dying stars

Lilacs and wine
to convince you that we'll be fine
They call you a demon
I call you weird sublime

She loves on a dime
Track Name: Storm Sanctuary (Nightmares)
She cut me in sleep with dreams
She called them dreams
I call them nightmares

What's this, what's that, what did I see
Roots in my mind grow rotten trees
There's bad things after me
They'll find me
Curled up in storm sanctuary

My insides are falling out
I never guessed that they'd be black
Lust is all I have left to do
Lust will fill me up and bring me back
You made storms in my heart
And now skies are clear
Clear of your noise
Clear as a nightmare

What's this, what's that, what did I see
Roots in my mind grow rotten trees
There's bad things after me
They'll find me
Curled up in storm sanctuary

Peace now, peace came with the wind
But violence, violence came mixed in
To want the one you love is such a crime
With a fist in my heart and a crow on my shoulder
I'll be wise, we'll all be older
She knows too much...

What's this, what's that, what did I see
Roots in my mind grow rotten trees
There's bad things after me
They'll find me
Curled up in storm sanctuary

Is it empty in here or is it just you and me
Laying in bleeding beds with with old friends and older memories

Oh no, she's got me again
Here comes the end

I'm still not half the man they think I am
(I think I am)
I washed the wailing from my walls but it seeped back in again
(I'm unclean again)

Oh Mr. Misery is dead
My coldest friend

It's been too long, too far gone, XO mom, Still going strong
