Track Name: Lying In State
I’m coming after, I’m after red coats who our borders hide
And I’m going after, right after someone takes me for a ride
And I’m seeking vengeance on those who hold a limp wrist to my name
And on that occasion the powers black list them right into shame

Lying In State, in the Capitol Rotunda

I’m heading nowhere, my head is off and you don’t seem to care
I’m feeling easy, puking it up to see if you still please me
She’s taking notice, she’s taking off with no intent to hide
And on that occasion I’m gonna shake right up til my nerves die

I won’t let up, I won’t let up, since you let it out

I’m heading nowhere, my head is off and you don’t seem to care
I’m feeling easy, puking it up to see if you still please me
She’s taking notice, she’s taking off with no intent to hide
And on that occasion I’m gonna shake right up til my nerves die

Lying In State, in the Capitol Rotunda
Track Name: Creepaway
Keep track of nothing, you’ll run out of all you know
I was nothing, had to go and creep away

I know you needed it
Creep away
I’m ducking out of it
Creep away
You know I’m hiding it anyway

Deep in my cellar, no I didn’t tell her
What I’m doing, I just let it creep away

You know I needed it
Creep away
Backed up, I’m spewing it
Creep away
You know I’m hiding it anyway

Wet from the wonder, hoping at what’s under there
Cut your fooling, listen up or creep away

Can’t get away with it
Creep away
There’s no use trying it
Creep away
She’ll keep on hiding it anyway

You call me up
Back, I’m crawling back
You call me out
Back, don’t call me back

Fine now I’ll tell you, talk right through you don’t give
Well, nice to know you, I come off a creep away

You thought I needed it
Creep away
You must be out of it
Creep away
I wasn’t buying it anyway

You call me up
Back, I’m crawling back
You call me out
Back, don’t call me back
Track Name: The Wolfs Lair
Walking through where most cower, of a beast who’ll devour
Any being caught breathing is a being worth eating
There’s nothing to see there, the wolfs lair is haunted
You don’t want to be there, the wolfs lair is haunted

Don’t leave me left all alone while you know who is lurking out there
Pick up the pace, or your face wont even matter within the hour

On all fours in a clearing, found the beast we’re all hearing
Back it up very quiet, now the woods are worth hiding in
There’s nothing to see there, the wolfs lair is haunted
You don’t want to be there, the wolfs lair is haunted

Keeping it down, tracking us down

Nowhere we’re keeping alone while you know who is lurking out there
Pick up the pace or your face wont even matter
All where we’ve been let him know
Our tracks are flirting with his eye holes
Pick up the pace

Keeping it down
Track Name: Beach Sick
See them walking down the beach
And dying from the heat above
They’re hoping for the windy water
To batter off the high beams of
The sun who’s forcing them to cower
Down on the waves they’re wading in

Oh we are, oh we are so beach sick

On the shore the heat is preying
Upon the sand my face is in
Now look the tide is slowly racing
To back him up and drag me in

Oh we are, oh we are so beach sick

On the shore the heat is preying
Upon the sand my face is in
Now look the tide is slowly racing
To back him up and drag me

Oh we are, oh we are so beach sick

I will knock your sun block off your face

Oh we are, oh we are so beach sick
Track Name: All My Friends (are dead)
All my friends are dead, leaving me alone
I’m not stopping them from going
All my friends are dead, leaving me alone
I’m just wondering where they’re going
Without me

Is it someplace I cant go

Now just to move on, rearrange my phone
There’s no one left who’s calling, there’s no one left worth calling
All my friends are gone, they won’t haunt my home
I’m just wondering where they’re going
Without me

Is it someplace I cant go

Every time I go out wondering if there’s anyone else but me
I know that I have finally found that I don’t need anyone

Cause all my friends are dead, leaving me alone
I’m not stopping them from going
All my friends are dead, leaving me alone
I’m just wondering where they’re going
Without me

Is it someplace I cant go
Visit someplace I can go
Track Name: Summer
So long summer time, there you go
Hoping autumn comes too slow
Hey there summer time, let us know
Wont you tell us of the fall

Tell us what’s to come when you go
Warn us of the cold
Autumn sounds quite nice when hoping
Winters not too bold

We don’t want to leave, falling from the trees
To the ground below, tell us where to go
Track Name: Cross Eye Stereo
We were saved by radio silence
Back off for a try, wearing out am I
We were saved by radio silence
Kills to hear you say, give up for the day

I’ll be happy in, five years if you can, be there waiting for me

We were saved by radio silence
Back off for a try, wearing out am I

Boy you will be fine as long as you stay off your mind and it will all slip away

We were saved by radio silence
Back off for a try, wearing out am I
We were saved by radio silence
Kills to hear you say, give up for the day
Track Name: Keep The Void
Love her, the girl we knew
Step out, and up she grew
And now she can’t fit back
Stuck outside now, stuck outside now

Keeping the void for you
You’re out with something new
So I find a quick filler, I don’t even feel her
Come inside now, come inside now

Only problem is no one else is you, that I know
But now that you heard you can get up and go
Stuck outside now, stuck outside now

Every time you reach out
Breach the wall you built between you and me
It brings me to my knees
But in my mind I bring you to my slumber room
To receive what I have sought
Territories long forgot
And now to link our minds
So we can live such lovely dreams
Through all the haze that I see
These are places we belong
In this dream you have not gone
So look into my eyes
But I can tell it isn’t you
After all that we’ve been through
You have no reason to hide
But you underplayed our link
And now our minds can’t sync
Oh what a terrible time
Track Name: Heat
Tell me to calm down, no simple lie
You sure have to try
Darling now I know, don’t tell me twice
You don’t have to cry

You’re the one who will stick around, after all
All the heat will settle down

If you can hold a sigh I will come out
Just compose yourself
Who would want to win, what shitty prize
Would I pin on my

You’re the one who will stick around, after all
All the heat will settle down

Darling now I know, don’t tell me twice
You don’t have to cry

You’re the one who will stick around, after all
All the heat will settle down
You’re the one, so stick around, after all
All the heat we’ll settle down
Track Name: No Way, No How
Sun light the way, so I may walk back to you
Darkness will sway me, so I’ll follow them too
I say no way, no how

Don’t close your eyes or the sun goes away to dream
Then darkness swoops down trying to take you from me
To them I say no way, no how
Go away, go now
Track Name: Fighting Coast
Drawing in, flowing in, rowing in, standing in
On land they said to hunt for, they sent us nowhere
To the coast in the west over green foamy sea
From land they say we die for, but we’re just trying
For the shore line ahead, planting our feet instead
Of men across the water, unfurl their order
And the band rolling in, on the shore they will win

On this fighting coast the natives going down
All abiding coast, we claim what we have found
Barely with our breath we push the natives down
On the shore they rest, their graves are to be found
Track Name: Weekend Hanging
I see you’re fooling here, to get you off you lead me on, and on
Can’t give no signals off, that’s why I’m sleeping in my skin, alone

I try too hard for me to stay in
I’m so left out of weekend hanging

The invitations there, don’t pick it up your friends might stare, oh well
Act like I didn’t care, there’s someone sleeping in my skin, I know

I try too hard for me to stay in
I’m so left out of weekend hanging
I’m better off

Don’t seem to give a shit, point towards the door you gotta go, so go
You’re missing out for real, there’s someone better that I see, hello

I try too hard for me to stay in
I’m so left out of weekend hanging
