Track Name: A Hole in the Deep Sleep
In the rearview mirror
I watch my world fall away
call on Mother Superior
hey-ee-yay-ee-yeah!

so feign a reaction
and try not to blink
there's no such thing as retraction
and no more privacy

here's a simple truth
worth a pound of flesh
there's so much to know
but no time left

so feign a reaction
and try not to think
the harder it blows
the deeper the hole in your sleep

better the devil you know
better the less it costs
don't think I'll truly know
what it is we lost

every little drop of spittle
every hope so brittle
every sunny day or perfect night
every odd time I thought I might be right

in the rearview mirror
watch the world fall away
I'm having an allergic reaction
hey! hey! hey!
Track Name: Cupid's Exile
Look at that face
so lovely even when you cry
determined despite defeat
it's clear in those razor-sharp eyes

if you've got
the courage to read and learn
you may not fade and burn
all of the stars arrange

logical conclusions
drawn from absurd hypotheses
we run on foolish notions like these
but we're all used to that now

from the bomber to the bombed
the lovelorn to anyone
Track Name: One Small Death
It was an honest mistake
the first time an exceptional fake
now I think I'm inclined
can't wait to dig in

one time
less is much more
the first time enough to cajole
my mind a sensual whore

and what does it mean to feel as light as a cloud?
and what does it mean to be the last one to know?

no mind; set yourself free
how long I've waited to be
rescued by a savior or three

it was an honest mistake
the first time an exceptional fake
now I think I'm inclined

and what does it mean to feel as light as a cloud?
and what does it mean to be the last one to know?
Track Name: The Only Girl in the World
I found an old photo of you
somewhat faded, frayed, and used
reminded me of all we used to do
in this implausible world

I could find out where you're at now
re-ignite a love long burnt out
with words casting a verbal spell
in this implausible world

who do you love now?
who is it you think that you love now?
Track Name: To the Marrow (with X-Ray Eyes)
There is a story here
will grow loud in time
all things must pass
or be unwound
with X-Ray eyes
see right through their lies
with X-Ray eyes
you'll see straight through their lies

as sure as promises break
as sure as smiles are fake
a toothsome grin
we'll all be told then
X-Ray eyes
burning holes straight through their lies
your X-Ray eyes
nod your head and just smile

there is a story here
will grow loud in time
all things must pass
or be unwound
with X-Ray eyes
see straight through their lies
with X-Ray eyes
you'll see straight through their lies
X-Ray eyes
see right through their lies
X-Ray eyes ...
Track Name: The Echo of A Broken Heart
look at how she glows at
all the things she knows
could change lives if she exposed
and here I yearn to know her inner constellations

I've got a memory like a steel trap
there's no escape from that
like a dreamer stuck in their own madness
I am stuck in my own sadness
at how much I miss you
yeah, I miss you

you've got a tongue like an evil curse
saccharine kisses simply coat your words
burrowing beneath the conscious mind
it's so far but not far behind

since nothing is how it seems
there's no love lost and no broken dreams
everything you've ever said
keeps running on inside my head
and how much I miss you
yes, I miss you
Track Name: Among These Pretty Flowers
this world is sweet
with earthly delights
hard hunger pangs
burn through the night
that which you crave
a constant haunting
the deep sucking sound
circling the drain

what would you give in exchange for your soul?
what would you give to fill that dead void?
what would you give in exchange for your soul?
what else do you have that's worth more than gold?
Track Name: Another Saturday Night
Sixty buck should get you what you need to get right
ease the twisting, churning, turning all through the night
every little whisper spoiling in your mind
tiny sharp hooks in the thousands all afire

you
(are so -ah! look so - ah! must be!)
see things as they really are
you
(feel so -ah! taste so - ah! must be!)
forever the stars burn in those eyes

smoke and explode it's not the highs or the lows
it's the truth that's painful; another day, another mouthful
gripped by the vice of the thing that keeps you light
by the mercy of the sky let it be all right

you
(are so -ah! look so - ah! must be!)
see things as they really are
you
(feel so -ah! taste so - ah! must be!)
forever the stars burn in those eyes
Track Name: Love Will Make Spies of Us All
I watch you when you sleep
I can see you through the darkest night
and throughout the daylight

you cannot hide from these prying eyes
you cannot hide so don't try

I'm a gallon drunk
but I know I'm right
and I'm right behind you
but always out of sight

you cannot hide from these prying eyes
you cannot hide so don't try
Track Name: Once Again the Softest Blue
you know you've been here before
deja vu or a sinking feeling
either way it amounts to the same
no love lost and no useful gain
it's not up to the stars to hold our destiny
it's all on you

this society profits on self-doubt
that makes liking yourself a rebellious act
either way it amounts to the same
no love lost and no useful gain
it's not up to the stars to hold your destiny
it's all on you
Track Name: Savages
to tell the truth
I don't see both sides
I see the brutes
and their wicked smiles

but that's just who we are
and that's just what we are

take cover now, head to the ground, don't look around or be swallowed
take cover now, head to the ground, don't look around or be divided
take cover now, head to the ground, don't look around lest you be
take cover now, head to the ground, don't look around lest you be blood-red blinded too

hear them bellow and bawl
through the dark, still night
with crocodile grins
the veneer is thin

take cover now, head to the ground, don't look around or be swallowed
take cover now, head to the ground, don't look around or be divided
take cover now, head to the ground, don't look around lest you be
take cover now, head to the ground, don't look around lest you be blood-red blinded too
Track Name: The Year of Living Honestly
Of all the things he said to me
of all the things that I could be
so many possibilities
find your passion and we'll see

lying there no showing fear
trying hard to persevere
all the while an honest smile
I hope, I hope I'm so brave

meanwhile, the earth did spin
moments passed through thick and thin
the universe takes what it wants
there's no telling why or when

a stream of water strums the reflection pool
the cold winter wind braces you
now I know who's being fooled
but in my mind is his gentle smile

of all the things he said to me
all the things I could be
so many possibilities
find your passion and you'll see
Track Name: Head Fake
would you mind telling me
is this real or a bad dream?
since the here and now equals everything
it begs the question
it begs the question

are things as they seem or stretched too fine
well?
if it's gotta bleed, bleed over me
boy it's hard to know what's right
strangled by strings in thousands of ways

may time always be kind
what's out of sight is always top-of-mind
hold fast and steady now
and dream of golden days

are things as they seem or stretched too fine
well?
if it's gotta bleed, bleed over me
boy it's hard to know what's right
strangled by strings in thousands of ways

whatever forever
comfort me
if the here and now means everything
the question must be asked
so ask

are things as they seem or stretched too fine
well?
if it's gotta bleed, bleed over me
boy it's hard to know what's right
strangled by strings in thousands of ways
Track Name: Into A Stone
Silence that sound
make the whole world stop spinning 'round
it's too easy to become attached to all of this
it's far too easy, I know

and all that's left now
are trinkets of what was
another useless monument to ignore
