Track Name: Pride
I am swallowing my pills
I am swallowing my pride
I'm doing my very best to keep the monsters locked inside
sticks and stones and broken bones
I'll use them all to build my throne
So please come out and play with me
I'll letcha climb my apple tree

I wanna squeese your toes
When I see them in your shoes
I never wanna be
The only redhead in the room
I want all of my wind chimes
In A major's what she said
And why don't things appear to you
As they do in my head

Cus I am swallowing my pills
I am swallowing my pride
I'm doing my very best to keep the monsters locked inside of me
sticks and stones and broken bones
I'll use them all to build my throne
So please come out and play with me
I'll letcha climb my apple tree

I can hear my teeth rattle
I can hear my bones rattle
I can hear my chains rattle
And I'm longing to be free
And although it just might be
P-P-Please don't call me crazy

Cus I am swallowing my pills
I am swallowing my pride
I'm doing my very best to keep the monsters locked inside of me
sticks and stones and broken bones
I'll use them all to build my throne
So please come out and play with me
I'll letcha climb my apple tree
Track Name: Keep me w/ you
keep me with you

when i'm gone
i know this place gets troubling
but know that i'm not far away
it'll be alright

keep me with you
keep me with you
when i'm gone
keep me with you
keep me with you
when i'm gone
i know this place gets troubling
but know that i'm not far away
it'll be alright

Track Name: Cats
i know i look cute but i don't wanna talk to you
i've already got more friends than i can care for
and therefore
although i look cute no i don't wanna talk to you
ive already got more friends than i can care for
and therefore

walking down the street tryin not to smile
which is quite a shame
cus its nice ta do once in awhile
but your swimmin in a lake full of crocodiles
waitin to test your spine
but i won't keep my eyes to the ground
this is my street too
and its my right to
and i don't
wanna miss
all the things
above the cracks in the pavement

so though i look cute
no i dont wanna talk to you
ive already got more friends than i can care for
and therefore
although i look cut
no i don't wanna talk to you
i've already got more friends than i can care for
and therefore

and yeah i know that we're radiating positive heat
the body of a woman yeah it's sure something neat
but maybe read a book or watch some better TV
there's so much more to life than callin girls on the street.
Track Name: Footsteps
i will follow in your footsteps
i will stand upon your shoulders
i will second read your bibles
i will second read your bibles
i will follow in your footsteps
i will stand upon your shoulders
i will second read your bibles
i will second read your bibles

do you know
if this circle ever ends
i find it quite suspicious
that theres footsteps
where i aint been walkin
how can it be
that theres no other life than me
out there
i don't think so

i will follow in your footsteps
i will stand upon your shoulders
i will second read your bibles
i will second read your bibles
i will follow in your footsteps
i will stand upon your shoulders
i will second read your bibles
i will second read your bibles

do you know
if this circle ever ends
i find it quite suspicious
that the internet
runs underwater
how can it be
that there's no other life than me
out there
i don't think so

i will follow in your footsteps
i will stand upon your shoulders
i will second read your bibles
i will second read your bibles
i will follow in your footsteps
i will stand upon your shoulders
i will second read your bibles
i will second read your bibles
Track Name: Buried
buried alive
except
i'm not underground
i am sitting right here
picking salt from my wounds
grain by grain
watching the time tick by

carrying weight
punching the clock
tiptoeing softly
to not disturb weeping
i pull on the rope
wait for the fall
open the door to find you
but there's nothing at all

hitting the keys
spinning my web
rolling the dice
running the stairs
just to find myself here
waiting for sleep
was that a dream
or did you erase everything?
Track Name: Dark Dark
starin at my things
thinkin all that i could do
if they would just release me
from that dark dark room
can't you hear me screamin
at the top of my lungs
let me out let me out let me out let me out
you gotta leave sometime
and ill be waitin at the door

starin at my wings
thinkin i could fly too
if they would just release me
from that dark dark room
can't you hear me callin
from depths of my soul
let me out let me out let me out let me out
you gotta sleep sometime
and ill be waitin at the door

starin at the ground
thinking i could dig through
you think id stay here waitin
in this dark dark room
Track Name: Waste
waste
i don't wanna be a waste
sometime i feel like such a waste
of time
of space

waste
i don't wanna be a waste
sometime im just a fuckin waste
of time
of space

sittin round
wonderin what
i am any good for
know ive got these things to do
i say i want
maybe i don't
maybe i don't
work as little as i can
just enough to get by
know ive got these bills to pay
but i just spend it anyway
i just can't help myself
can't help myself

cus im a waste
but i dont wanna be a waste
sometimes i feel like such a waste
of time
of space

melting brain
dripping spleen
bleeding heart, falling apart
i dont think i wanna be
anything anything anything
no
Track Name: Captains
i don't know what i've been told
but this is what i see

scores of captains
trickin babes and stealin honey
lord knows i would buy them off
if i only had the money
id write a tale so tall and brave
the tides would turn and wash away
the faded thoughts of those before
just washed up on an empty shore

i don't know what i've been told
but this is what i see

store of zombies
eatin brains and spendin money
lord knows i would fight'em off
if i only had a gun see
all the people walk away
and live to see another day
the shadows of the days before
just footsteps on an empty floor

i don't know what i've been told
but this is what i see

scores of humans
skippin stones and makin funnies
lord knows i would laugh it off
check the weather hope for sunny
for all of this i hope its true
the ocean to be wild and blue
the world will turn forever more
keep knockin on the empty doors

oooooo
Track Name: Girls
beautiful girls
bendin their bodies
strikin their poses
their hair flowin down
to the sea
where the fish will bite at it
a hook in their mouth
and you'll choke
and now all your pretty hair is wet

standin out there
like a bird
who just got it's wings
but they clipped em
before you could fly
so they throw ya some seed
say quiet when ya bleed
and sing when we want you to sing

wishin for mountains
longin for streams
give me the shelter
of the shadow
of a skyscraper
let the spiders
crawl into my mouth
when i sleep
counting continents
mourning those cities
Track Name: Meant to
i know i said id call
sometime last fall
said we'd grab a bite
one of these soon nights
and yeah i know the road to hell
is always paved with good intentions
but i meant to,
i meant to,
i did

I know i said i'd write
said id fix my bike
finish all the books i started
try to leave the house tonight
but yeah ya know the road to hell
is always paved with good intentions
but i meant to,
i meant to,
i did

i know i said that i
would try to change the world
know i said id fight
to try and make things right
but yeah ya know the road to hell
is always paved with good intentions
but i meant to,
i meant to,
i did
Track Name: Oh Pittsberg, My Pittsberg
spider in the bathroom
thinks he'll take a wife
and he thinks to himself
what a wonderful life
though i don't have much
i've got 8 legs and space to use them
and they'll never take that much from me

deer runnin in the street
like shadows in the night
and she thinks to herself
what a wonderful life
though i don't have much
i've got 4 legs and space to use them
and they'll never take that much from me

i've got a train roarin on my left
river roarin on my right
and i think to myself
what a wonderful life
though i don't have much
i've got 2 legs and space to use them
and they'll never take that much from me
