Track Name: Daggers
with all your secret whispers
and all your covered tracks,
the hardest part
is sifting through the facts.

due to circumstances beyond my control,
we've been severed. not halved, not whole.

i've been better!
i've been worse!
i've been better!
i've been worse!

our hearts pumped blood, not battery acid.
our love was good while it lasted.
our hearts pumped blood, not battery acid.
our love was good while it lasted.

with knives at our backs,
and daggers in our eyes,
morality attacks,
and oh! deception dies!

due to circumstances beyond my control,
we've been severed. not halved, not whole.

i've been better!
i've been worse!
i've been better!
i've been worse!

our hearts pumped blood, not battery acid.
our love was good while it lasted.
our hearts pumped blood, not battery acid.
our love was good while it lasted.
Track Name: Hard Heart
the apple of my eye is rotten to the core.
but you know that i'll keep worming my way back for more.
and oh this heart made of splintered wood,
well it feels so good when your skin's pressed against mine.

and all this time we've spent apart
doesn't quite build character like you said it would.
and all these months we've kept apart
have only made my heart hard.

oh this face cut from solid stone.
i can still feel your love inside my bones.
and oh these hands, while all rough and worn
could still carress your perfect form.

and all this time we've spent apart
doesn't quite build character like you said it would.
and all these months we've slept apart
have only made my heart hard.

and all this time we've spent apart
doesn't quite build character like you said it would.
and all these months we've wept apart
have only made my heart hard.
have only made my heart hard.
Track Name: Bereavement Leave
tar coated lungs stop parted lips and probing tongues.
we're old, not young.
withered smiles and sagging eyes, we're cutting bonds, we're breaking ties.
with desperate sighs.

all you have to say's what i've done wrong.
you'll just have to wait, i won't be long.

wrinkled skin and greying hair. declining health, intensive care.
i'm almost there.
we've forgotten homes.with shaking limbs and tired bones
that creak and moan.


all you have to say's what i've done wrong.
you'll just have to wait, i won't be long.
Track Name: Red
leave a trail of broken hearts and unswept floors behind.
the records on that
keeps you on my mind.
you stuck me with the fare for the cab ride back
home.
your sweater soaked through, and us both chilled to the bone.

we're
on our own, we're on our own.
the city streets are calling, and the stoplights
hum the tune.
we're on our own, we're on our own.
we're on our own.

i've followed all the breadcrumbs, and you're nowhere to be found.
i searched until my legs gave out, and passed out on the ground.
her lips are cracked and dry,
her fingernails caked with dirt.
she's skinned her knees, exhausted but
alert.

she's on her own, she's on he own.
the city streets are calling, and
the stoplights hum the tune.
she's on her own, she's on her own.
she's on her own.
Track Name: Damaged Goods
i did my part
to be the one to break your heart

i think i've tried
to be the one not right by your side

i've done my best
to rip your lungs right out of your chest

and i guess i could
have made sure you misunderstood


i've done all the damage i can!

if you think you must
turn your iron blood to rust

if you feel alright
test your swollen wings for flight

you've let it slip
oh disdain pours from your lips

you're on your own
with wicked words and broken bones

i've done all the damage i can!

do yourself a favour and just give up.
Track Name: Lovers!
every order you take brings you closer to god and his big black teeth.
lovers, take your swords and put them back in their sheaths.

time! all we need is time.
when i'm on the run, and you're on my mind.

every hour you sleep brings a familiar lie that i can't believe.
lovers, blacken your tongues 'til you cannot speak.

time! all we need is time.
when i'm on the run, and you're on my mind.

every promise you break puts the cold in my bones and the lead in my feet.
lovers, puncture your lungs so you cannot breathe.

time! all we need is time.
when i'm on the run, and you're on my mind.

lovers bury your knives, and refuse to bleed.
Track Name: Incidents
now you're gone
not just leaving
eyes rubbed raw
stomach heaving

chest caved in
you're not breathing
eyes gone dim
heart not beating

i'll be calm

blood climbs cracks
between your teeth
bones all snapped
you're stuck beneath

lips all chapped
rain still pounding
bones all snapped
sirens sounding

i'll be calm
