Track Name: Golden Girl
Good intentions never count for something
they’re next to worthless
when you’re burning for someone else

I hope the price you paid was worth it
I hope some day you don’t return it

I tried to kill it
but you’re bringing me
back around
you make me believe myself
when I tell you
I’m someone else

Your solution
is just taking the
fast way down
an all consuming faith
surrendering to fate

Inattention only leads to one thing
a gentle shove into the bosom
of someone else

Show up on the other side unwanted
show off all the inner scars still haunted

I tried to kill it
but you’re bringing me
back around
you make me believe myself
when I tell you
I’m someone else

Your solution
is just taking the
fast way down
an all consuming faith
surrendering to fate

New to the crushing
Old love is rusting
and left to wither on the vine

Are you too trusting
Goddamn you must be
Let’s try to live up to the hype

I tried to kill it
but you’re bringing me
back around
you make me believe myself
when I tell you
I’m someone else

Your solution
is just taking the
fast way down
an all consuming faith
surrendering to fate
Track Name: Slider
Don’t Say goodbye when you run into the fields
I know that I’ll see you again
You can run and hide
And leave me behind
I’ll never see you again

Don’t fall for the slider in your path
Don’t fall I’ll help if I can
Don’t fall

can’t catch a break when you run away from home
I know that I’ll see you again
you can lean on me, I’m always here for you
i’ll never see you again

Don’t fall for the slider in your path
Don’t fall I’ll help if I can
Don’t fall


No more sliders on the outside
You can wait for what you want
what you want
what you want

Don't Fall
Track Name: 17XU
They think I wear my
heart on my sleeve
If that were true
You’d turn and you’d
run screaming
I keep the real thing
hidden away from view

Keep it tight so close
that no one one sees
one little crack
and the whole thing
won’t stop leaking
and even so I keep coming
right back to

You
You
You
You

Walk in the door
and go dark until I sleep
and spend the all too
lonely long night dreaming
about the hours I
never could have with you

How do you start
with an end that looks
so so bleak
but I’m the fool who’s
gonna go on believing
Until the day I can
breathe the same air as

You
You
You
You


You
You
You
You

It’s true
I do
want to
with you
Track Name: Casual and Reckless
Apologies for the unreliable narration
It seemed a better strategy than truth
such a talent for self-destructive situations
and it’s close to going nuclear with you

Keep it casual and reckless
she said
I won’t be yours in the morning
but we have tonight
Slower burn bigger explosion
she said
holding hands we’ll scatter ashes
as we say good bye

thin smile hides twenty years of heavy breathing
loose words a careless match to light the fuse
dive in the sense of consequence is fleeting
the accomplice I’ve been searching for is you

Keep it casual and reckless
she said
I won’t be yours in the morning
but we have tonight
Slower burn bigger explosion
she said
holding hands we’ll scatter ashes
as we say good bye

hopeless
helpless
I won’t be yours in the morning
but we have tonight
Slower burn bigger explosion
she said
holding hands we’ll scatter ashes
as we say good bye

say goodbye
say goodbye
say goodbye


goodbye
Track Name: Diamonds
Turn it up and blow it out.
Look up and go blind.
Tear the feeling out of my skin.
Carry me carry me away.

I can’t see the window between the walls
the doorway is too little to help at all
Can't see the windows, can't see outside again
Never again.

Face the facts time is up
I won’t change anyway
scare the meaning out of my soul
before i drift away, drift away

I can’t see the window between the walls
the doorway is too little to help at all
Can't see the windows, can't see outside again
Never again.

I found you my diamond in the rough
I found you my diamond in the rough
i found you found you

I can’t see the window between the walls
the doorway is too little to help at all
Can't see the windows, can't see outside again
Never again.
Track Name: Anthem
You say it’s a victory
I disagree
it still stings like a loss to me
No matter where we stand

The noise is a factory
churning out doubts
at a rate
that you won’t believe
the currency we spend

It’s maddening to be
subject to an endless complication
It’s maddening to be
torn apart by a hopeless situation

Dictate the frequency
somewhere between
total silence
and next to nothing
it was all we had

it’s your last chance to see
better not blink
or you might
just catch the vanishing
if it was ever there

It’s maddening to be
subject to an endless complication
It’s maddening to be
torn apart by a hopeless situation

It’s maddening to be
subject to an endless complication
It’s maddening to be
torn apart by a hopeless situation


This is how it ends X 12
Track Name: Problem Solver
There’s hundreds of moving parts
a half dozen broken hearts
and who’s to say
what’s wrong or right

Steps made in the best of faith
the slipperiest slope to date
no climbing back
after tonight

You’re the only problem
I can’t solve

Electric across the space
the obvious came too late
and made it safe
with the denial

Now the it got to here
the simplest exit clears
a trail of tears
leads to the end

You’re the only problem
I can’t solve
You’re a trouble magnet
after all

I’m the only problem
I can’t solve
I’m a trouble magnet
after all
Track Name: Supergirl
The light went dark when the spark went out
It came so suddenly
it made no sense and defied the truth
We lost our chemistry

Tried to bring you back
Reignite the spark
But there was no energy
I made the chance
You defied the cure
We lost our chemistry

Don't go
Don't go away
Don't go
Is all I can say

You're like no other girl
Show me the world
You're super, girl
You're like no other girl
Show me the world
You're super, girl

girl
girl


Stuck in suspension
caustic capacity
Stuck in suspension
Fix this uncertainty
Stuck in suspension
We need harmony

You're like no other girl
Show me the world
You're super, girl
You're like no other girl
Show me the world
You're super, girl

Stuck in suspension
caustic capacity
Stuck in suspense
Track Name: Wrong Timing
Your mutation matches mine
combustibly connected
human carnage danger ride
or it would seem
except circumstance
won’t conspire
to let this be real

We’ve perfected the
art of wrong timing
the world will never see
the beauty of this thing

You’re no stranger in my head
permanent resident
no exit visa until death
Are you a crush
or a crushing disappointment
we’ll find out
in no time

We’ve perfected the
art of wrong timing
the world will never see
the glory of this thing

We’ve perfected the
art of wrong timing
the world will never see
this monstrosity
Track Name: The Lie Love
Got stash of all the things I’ll send to you
when you leave for the last time
Did you think that all the things I said weren’t true
when I thought that you were mine
So unkind X4
All the time X4

You said you’re gone
half a dozen times
though it never rang quite true
and I carryon
while you think you’re gone
but my soul still stinks of you
when we burn our best
and all the rest
our regrets can be the fuel
I would never tell you what to do

did you ever think that I could be so cruel
I don’t want to but I try
only giving what i get in turn from you
though it makes me want to die
Want to die X4
All the time X4

You said you’re gone
half a dozen times
though it never rang quite true
and I carryon
while you think you’re gone
but my soul still stinks of you
when we burn our best
and all the rest
our regrets can be the fuel
I would never tell you what to do

You said you’re gone
half a dozen times
though it never rang quite true
and I carryon
while you think you’re gone
but my soul still stinks of you
when we burn our best
and all the rest
our regrets can be the fuel
I would never tell you what to
I would never tell you what to
I would never tell you what to do
