Track Name: where'd the sun go?
owe an apology
on behalf of countless time i've spent
making love to synergy
two devils in a small room sharing rent
and i want to go home
but i can't have you back

do you ever get the feeling the suns underground
it feels like weeks since it's been around
and it all feels like an elaborate scheme
in different parts of my dream

you look different
looking through the shades
but i know neither of us have changed
we're still the same
the moon comes up and shows a new day
the earth continues on its track

sleepy sleepy
don't waste your breath
sleepy sleepy
i hold your head
but i still can't have you back

do you ever get the feeling the suns underground
it feels like weeks since it's been around
and it all feels like an elaborate scheme
in different parts of my dreams
Track Name: never felt like this before
i lost your bones and i'm sorry
could we still recreate the body
a righteous passage to your left
down the hallway someone laughs

feel like i want to go out tonight
a rare occurance that i could
leave my bed and use my legs
and face the harbor lights

as i sailed outward into the black hole
exercised my will of survival
the lights grew smaller and i felt lighter
fight or flight never felt like this before

picking my skin
into a new face mask
i always wished that i could take back
awful things that i said to you
but the words are gone
and i can't choose why i

never felt like this before
never felt like this before
never felt so nice before
never felt like this before

i went out unnoticed
like a wet dream with no climax
turned my memories into ash
no riptide could pull me back
Track Name: alone, as I remember
why do you act like you don't know me?
when I know, damn well, you helped me through hell

the morning brought sun
alone, as I remember

don't act like you care when you never did at all.
Track Name: Alice
only our children will see the world
with what we're given
from what we're told
i hope i never grow old
i hope that i never die alone

i don't want to think for myself
i just want the day to go by

oh alice
why do you hide from the things you see
you know they're all make believe
is that something you have not perceived

oh alice
you've done it again
you made me think we were friends
ohh ohh
keep hiding
ohh ohh
keep lying
Track Name: ghost ("wanna die with me" revisited)(reprise)
the winter months were harsh oh my hands they were so cold
lost my shit and lost half of the things I do not know
the windows boarded up
we left the two bed shack
traded wine for dimes and splints to cure my heart attack
you left home for a while
said you'd be right back
i found the note you left
it read i know you're not dead

///////////////////////

i wish that i was dead so i could haunt you in your dreams
sneak in seamlessly and never leave
i patched the crack in the window
just in time for snow
the winter months are harsh and your room it is so cold
we're underneath the covers
and my hands are in your spine
twisting knobs and pulling strings
pouring you white wine
Track Name: the tide
i am nothing but a cliche
amp buzz and cocaine
i don't want the world to stop for me
i just want the world to stop
wasting seconds of precious days
feels like i'm throwing my life away
i can't afford to love when i'm too scared to trust

ooohhh ooohh the tides are rolling out
ohh oooh the best are burning up

I finally left
i followed through
i finally left
i followed through
floating endlessly
watching hours pass me by
cause i found love
