I AM ALMOST PERFECTLY AWAKE I want to know who I am. Recall my former life. Desperate, I etch on paper Careful to mark the time. I need to know who I am This is no kind of life Desperate, I etch on paper And add another line. Imagine one night five years long No dreaming, waking, nothing at all. I'm staring at my fingers Convinced I've never played My hands move through the air with a calculated grace Your voice will bring me back to a safe suspended state. Only to wake completely in violent fits and shakes. Imagine one night five years long No dreaming, waking, nothing at all. Imagine one night five years long. No seeing, hearing, nothing at all. Imagine one night five years long No dreaming, waking, nothing at all. Imagine one night five years long. No seeing, hearing, nothing at all.

Neon Black 03:58
NEON BLACK Our houses burned to the ground. We wiped our eyes and ran to the shore. It was a bad scene that we all had dreamed before. The fire spread to the sea. We watched from high cliffs on the coast line They were smiling as they sank beneath the waves as if sparing us our regret as we prayed. Always knew where to find you. Always knew it would swallow you up. It's not home. Deep blue for miles I can swim for awhile. Under passing clouds Til my legs give out

Silhouettes 05:41
Did you drink a bit too much? Did he find you on the ground? Want to know what you had on. Well, you shouldn't dress like that It seems to me that it's your fault But we all have a fatal flaw. How many partners have you had? That's why he thought he had a chance Tell me, did he make you come? Well, you must have liked it some. And they do it all the time. (Didn't hear you tell me "no".) It could happen any time. (We both drank a lot, you know.) And they do it all the time. (Can't remember how it went.) It could happen any time. (You seemed to like it.) I started drinking alone before school Cuz kids were staring and love to be cruel. They all filled me with electric dread. And proved to me they'd make good on their threats. Mother held me, said. "You should be afraid. I first felt it when I was your age. I'm still filled with electric dread. You'd think that we were only silhouettes" And they do it all the time. It could happen anytime. And they do it all the time. It could happen anytime.

Castling 04:23
I am not so far, Noboru Wataya We're getting further, we're getting further every night And I'm afraid of heights. In a well too deep You are in my dreams I'm getting weaker, I'm getting weaker every night With the waning light In a vacant house Hang her dress and blouses While another naive lover's satisfied I search in darkness, calling into the night

Erased 04:09
When it happens to me, don't let me slide. Tell me what I said that day when we cried in the rain and had it out in that alleyway Erased. I suppose it's okay. I don't wanna try to fight another day It's time to remember old ways. Grab me by my neck Slap me in the face.

Rich Man 02:13
I don't want to be drunk anymore oh no I'd rather be sober See clearly and think it over Well, why not what's one more? I'm still a good little soldier. Got time before I'm old for now. But not that long. I don't wanna be broke anymore. Oh no I'd rather be a rich man, good father, and a good Christian. Never mind that's too much work For faux sophistication Don't have the will or patience I should know by now.

Hear your footsteps closing in Shadows sliding down my skin Piles of broken parts all wound too tightly, Prowling in the dark You're not afraid like me. oh... What you gave me is kicking in This is why we fear all men Roses in the road Lit by the tail lights Blowing in the cold They're not afraid like me. From lonely streets to crowded bars There is no place I can't be harmed. A violent stranger or my sweetheart You'd think you could them apart. Be calm Stay silent Good girls Keep quiet From lonely streets to crowded bars There is no place I can't be harmed. A violent stranger or my sweetheart You'd think you could them apart. All my mother's fears were justified I am always seen as a target She's been telling me for most my life: We will always have it the hardest.

When my back was turned and they knocked me down. Gravel filled my mouth I barely made a sound. There's a world of noise but I can't hear it underground. Is someone coming back for me? Is someone coming back for me? Is someone coming back for me? Then I felt a hand but it made no sign that it even knew our fingers intertwined I'm a sparrow on the sea. Is someone coming back for me? Is someone coming back? All on my own. All on my own. On my own. Like I've always been. So as you were. Head lights, tail lights. People with their own lives Head lights, tail lights Everything is alright.
