Track Name: IDKY
I don’t know why
She left for good last night
She didn’t say much

I don’t know why
I lost myself for a little while
I was deep in thought

I don’t know why
I thought I had really done it this time
I thought I had really done it this time
I thought I had really done it this time
I don’t know why
Track Name: Rachel (The Stain Of Knowledge_
Rachel, why did you bring me here
To stare at the endless blue
Of the ocean or the sky
Or the iris of my eye
To and see your point of view
When everything I’ve learned
Has only brought me further from the truth

Rachel why did you teach me fear?
Was it so I knew to run
So I can make it another year?
Rachel why do I hate death?
When it’s all that I will have
When I’ve given my last breath

Rachel, I’ll put your head up on the wall
When the gun is in your hand
You’ll only be taking the fall
I’ll cut out your brain
Clean up the stain of knowledge

Rachel, you had to die for me
And I’ll swallow up the sea
Or turn the air to smog

‘Cause I am the mourning son
Burning bright beside your grave

Rachel why didn’t you point that gun at me
I am not for this world
I am only for the flood
And I want to write my name in blood
And have it splattered across a million TV screens

Rachel, I’ll put your head up on the wall
When the gun is in your hand
You’ll only be taking the fall
I’ll cut out your brain
Clean up the stain of knowledge
Remove every trace of knowledge

Rachel, I hope you know
That these are only words
And if I’ve said
Anything to upset you
I hope you know I’m sorry
These fevers pass…

I hope one day to be as beautiful as you are…
Track Name: Make Me
I felt my blood run cold in the champagne overflow
Stuck with myself again this time
I saw my memories lying splintered in the road
The cracked streets where the rain was crying

Stay out of my way Today
There’s not a word that I can say to make you want to stay, make you want to say
There’s not a feeling you can feel to show me how to heal, show me how to heal

You seemed so solemn in that dusty blue chair
Lost somewhere deep inside
You were a mirror into which I stared
The fear that lurks in the shadows of our eyes

Stay out of my way Today
There’s not a word that I can say to make you want to stay, make you want to stay
There’s not a feeling you can feel to show me how to heal, show me how to heal
There’s not a letter you can write, to help me sleep tonight, help me sleep tonight
There’s not a blessing you can give to make me want to live, make me want to live

I watched you walking out of my apartment
I watched you walking out of my life
My last sight, your hair shimmering in the wind

There’s not a word that I can say to make you want to stay, make you want to stay
There’s not a feeling you can feel to show me how to heal, show me how to heal
There’s not a letter you can write, to help me sleep tonight, help me sleep tonight
There’s not a blessing you can give to make me want live, make me want live
Track Name: I Am A Hurricane
I slept all day
There was a storm outside
And we’re running low
I didn’t eat a thing
But help is on the way
Help will soon arrive

This is how I spend my time
Sitting here with you
I told you this before
The second you walked in the door
This is only for a little while
I’m going home, soon

Home, where I come from
Nearly there, it’s been so long
These are trying times but we’ll make it through all right
We’ve seen worse before. We are desensitized

And the storm is raging on.
Its screaming and trying to swallow us hole
But we have nine lives
We will be survivors
We are the special ones
We can always take control

So stare me down
With your blue gaze,
Eye of the hurricane
Rip me out
Time is up
Its all forgotten

Please, lock me away
Before I tear you apart
I can’t be stopped, I was born this way
Its safe out there, the storm is in my heart

Please stay out
I’ll crush you now
I am a hurricane
Please stay out
Just run away
I am a hurricane
Track Name: Lover's Loss
We called it, Lover’s Loss
And that’s all that words can describe

If you fight it, as best as you can
If you fight it, as best as you can
You will break first

If you fight it, as best as you can
If you fight it, as best as you can
You will break first

I know that you’re the one
I know that you’re the one
Been trying, too hard
For words that won’t come

I know that you’re the one
And I know that you’re the one
Been trying too hard
For words that won’t come

You have to learn to trust
But what doesn’t break down
What doesn’t start to rust

We were laughing under the moon
But it crashed down from the sky
It all ended so soon

And I don’t know what to do anymore
And I don’t know what to do anymore

I know that you’re the one
I know that you’re the one
Laughing, smiling
Under the hot sun

I know that you’re the one
And I know that you’re the one
Laughing, smiling
Under the hot son
Track Name: ctrlRACHELctrl
I am just another son.
I am bright and burned
I killed you on the way out
But you can never die

It’s all about control, isn’t it Rachel.
But it’s so hard to take a step back when every moment BLENDS into the next
And I can’t get above it.

You’ve steered the reins for a long time.
You’ve gotten very good at it.


I just want one second of freedom
Freedom from my fingers freedom from my legs
Freedom from my stomach, my heart, my mind
Freedom from everything that keeps me shackled in

I used to think that I had found that freedom
But its gone now, and maybe its just because I know better
And that is the scariest part of all

Alison wasn’t ever bound this way
The way her eyes lit up when I said something funny
And when her arms were around me, they went on forever
Alison was free
Alison was the moon in eclipse
And now she’s a balloon in the wind

And its just you and me again Rachel
And I swear that you’re a cold bitch
Indifferent but you never leave me alone
And I say things just to hurt you.
But you’ll never let go
You were always in control

You control the sky, it was there before me
You control the earth, it was there before me
You control all those old societies
And everything is handed down by you

So Rachel, what chance did I have?
Track Name: Prizefighter
Lay me out
Get up, get up again
There’s pride at stake
And money always changing hands

And my skin rips
Bones shatter
And I ask why
You never give me an answer

But I’ll always be your prizefighter
In the roar, the sweat the heat, lights getting brighter

My hood’s tight
Around my temples
I’ll split his head
Right down the middle

And if you smile right
I’ll fight your war
I just need a distraction
I don’t need to know what its for

Because I’ll always be your prizefighter
In the roar, the sweat the heat, lights getting brighter

I’ll always be your prizefighter…
Track Name: A Good Son
Beaten down, and I think that you should blame me
Don’t these stories end in some kind of meaning
And I’ve been waiting for so long
Start over, blessed child
We’re all here, together, together

I’ve been trying to bleed thoughts out of my head
Pretend that I’m here at the end, at the end
But I’ll always come back, I’ll always come back home
‘Cause I’m a good son
A good son, A good son
Now Listen, Now Listen, Now Listen, Now Listen
This is no kind of escape
This is no kind of escape
So take your sleeping pills and cry into your pillow
‘Cause this is no kind of escape

A fast approaching day everything will change
A revelation, a revelation
Spread your wings and they’ll burst into flame
A moment in the sun, a moment in the sun
So grab it now, it’s here for the taking
Grab it now, there’s no use in waiting
A moment in the sun, a moment in the sun
And the day is here, I am filled with fear
Everything could go wrong, Everything could go wrong
Just grab it now, it’s here for the taking
Grab it now, there’s no use in waiting
A moment in the sun, a moment in the sun
Track Name: Exhausted
Can you remember?
Before the walls went up
In hidden green towers and blossoming flowers
Before the quicksand stuck

Can you still picture?
The valleys stretching so wide
The mountains all raised, up into space
Before they got lost to the tide

Before memory was your only guiding light
Before you were trapped, in a rut, on the tracks
Could you cut through your pride and ever get it back, ever get it back

So exhausted
Lay down, at least for a while
I lost it
Long back, out in the wild

Can you still hear?
When every note sounded new
When magic was there, in the waves, in the air
Something untouchable too

Can you remember?
When there was something worth searching for
Never quite found it, raced all around it
But just ended up just getting bored

Before the cold seeped in through your coat
The wind whipped you withered and dry
Before all the thoughts pressed in from all sides
Could you cut through them all and destroy all your pride, destroy all your pride

So exhausted
Lay down, at least for a while
I lost it
Long back, out in the wild

Can’t get you out of my mind
Tips of your toes, back of your spine
Oh, my eyes are spinning pictures,
Spinning pictures of what they want me to see

So exhausted…
I’ve run out of luck, I fuck everything up…
Track Name: So Long, Alison
I hope that I can find
Someone to share these long car rides
Skirting the city side

And if our eyes should meet
On these fast paced, lonely Hollywood streets
I swear I’d make it worth your time

So Long, Alison
Always remember, joy is in the air
Its just a question, my lonesome dear, of whether it can be found

I really thought this time
There was something worth the sense of pride
In this mixed up cocktail life

And when you left my side
You took a little part of me
Nothing ever goes for free

So Long Alison
Always remember, joy is in the air
And it’s just a question, my lonesome dear, of whether it can be found

So Long Alison
Always remember, joy is in the air
It’s just a question of whether it can be found

Here’s a little something true, to keep close to you
Always remember, joy is in the air, Alison…
