Track Name: I Am Almost Perfectly Awake
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.
Track Name: Neon Black
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
Track Name: Silhouettes
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.
Track Name: Castling
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
Track Name: Erased
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.
Track Name: Rich Man
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.
Track Name: Lost To The Max
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.
Track Name: Sparrow & The Sea
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.
