Track Name: Roses
Her throat so dry
And with crowded eyes
She was valued then

But the love it came,
and it quickly went
There were feelings left

The door was opened and when you went through
I thought I'd see you again, but things never improved
And she stepped in with roses and your name in her hand
And she called you to places that we'd never been
Track Name: Be A Savior
When I lay down will you be here?
I haven't seen you in so many years
Is it my twisted vision or am I
losing you to all my fears?
Tell me you're

Sick of it too
Are you too tired to fight?
Were you dealt the wrong cards?
Am I not worth the night?
I've been clear as each day
Dying to meet you
And down on my knees I pray
Be a savior

Is my skull thicker than your truth
so that your words cannot seep through?
Is it for all of this that I
I can't see you
Tell me you're

Sick of it too
Are you too tired to fight?
Were you dealt the wrong cards?
Am I not worth the night?
I've been clear as each day
Dying to meet you
And down on my needs I pray
Be a savior
Track Name: Poet
And it came to me then
It was hidden in the pen on burning leaves
All the years in the womb
I was hidden in the gloom of secrecy
But you shed me the fault
And you hid in the darkness, dreaming
Track Name: Goliath
Storm cloud, suck me dry
Storm cloud, thicker than the sky at night
With drops of anger, suffocate
Taking all you have created away from you
And it takes your attitude

Monster, mock my sling
Monster, bigger than the other things made for this day
You'll breathe your last
And watching your closing moments pass away from you
I'll take your children too
Track Name: Interlude
Gleaming shades of burning brass
Glide across the sun
Flow to kingdom come

Radiant beams of fire blaze
Across the firey ball
Burning at your call

Our eyes glazed over all in awe
Bowing to your light
You put our hearts in flight
Track Name: Queen Pt. 1
Do you love it when I mean that I hate that I love you?
Or are you merely running out of pretty lies?
Do you hate the consequences, uglier than I once was to you?
Or is it better that I'm furthest out of mind

Fill my ego with your two cents
I was never more than a dime
A gorgeous bastard with a perfect boundary fence
With unclear lines

A lie

Cope with coke
Smoke to gloat
Drown your guilt in wine
Shoot up, undone
Your sorrows gone
The bruises heal with time
I'm knocking on your father's door
to see the place run down
Graffitied with uncertainty
Books with pages on the ground
Track Name: Queen Pt. 2
The queen
The beast of horrible things
The thorns in your side
The drugs in your drinks
I've conquered your reason
Corrupted your dreams
Burned through your journals
And stole your sweet sleep
I am the one who resides in the deep
In the pit of your stomach
The shards in your feet
The way that you are
And the colors you bleed
I'm the scars on your palms
You're the wholeness of me

Tell me one thing beautiful in me
Something I can believe
But I haven't seen
I've eaten my pride
And devoured the things
That made me feel pretty
Track Name: Vanished
Can you forgive what you say has been forgotten?
I can't begin to see myself like you
Is there redemption for repeated transgressions?
I've made you promises and haven't fallen through

Can I
Breathe your word in like I once did?
But I don't understand it anymore
My foot's become my favorite flavor
But I can't tell the difference between it
And something more

Are there any days less clouded
By overhanging guilt and pouring truth?
I taste your waters, thick and bloody
It's on my hands, it's in my youth

Oh I
Breathe your word in like I once did
But I don't understand it anymore
My foot's become my favorite flavor
But I can't tell the difference between it
And something more
Track Name: The Meteor Show
I don't know what keeps me from dreaming
Things that never were
You can't tell me where I've been
I'll keep my porch swing occupied with wonderings
Until you come unlock my head

Three less words, unaccounted for
I think I lost them in the rain
But you'll return with all the clouds in hand
And I'll forget all of our names

Are these people what they say?
Or do we meet 'cause we're afraid of goodbyes and other phrases?
Are we defined by where we've been
'Cause if I don't remember
Is there any such thing as consequences?

We spend dollars on the priceless times
We fill our closets with each other's coats
We don't remember not being high
But we forget what hurts the most

Are these people what they say?
Or do we meet 'cause we're afraid of goodbyes and other phrases?
Are we defined by where we've been?
'Cause if I don't remember
Is there any such thing as consequences?
Track Name: In The Garden
We are gathered here today
To mourn the greatest of the great
And when we stand to say
The highlights of his shortened days
We'll weep a shallow tune in his name
It'll go on for days

When can we say we know where we have been?
Are we left with many days?
When we know we've swam
Beyond the line of the shallow end
Do we know then, it's time to walk away?
That's what we always say.

I do miss you.
