Track Name: Self Portrait
I've been waking up
With a haunted head
I could blow your brains out, out on the wall
and in your blood I'd paint my self in the victims role

I'm gonna need coffee and sympathy
to get out of bed today, can you do that for me?

I could spill my guts out, out on the floor
and in my blood I'd paint myself in the victims role

I'm no good.
Track Name: Shallow Creatures
I'm crawling out my skin
knowing how human I have been
why won't they stay away?
please make them stay away
turn down the noise they make
these soft machines
It twists and oscillate, inside of me

sorry for this mess you found
thank god you mirror it so well

we're all just shallow creatures
Track Name: Nervous all the Time
run away but you won't get too far
never know just what I'm running from
drowning now but there are now waves around
i was lost yeah, but now I'm found

I never know/want to know

I'll be honest with you I'm just lying to myself
Track Name: Future Failures
Lately I've been terrified that I've been wasting all my time
Ive been feeling guilty with no reason to be
Ive been feeling guilty, whats my reason to be?

I'm afraid of this deeper shade blue
and all my future failures too
I've been dying for something to believe
but ill be dying with nothing to believe

what should I believe?
Track Name: Static Sound
All I hear are static sounds
it follows me all around
won't you please help me turn it down?
Track Name: Ego Death Ritual
Hey miss new wave
see you standing there
got your big sun glasses & your new hair
Smokin' that cigarette, driving me wild
smoke your last cigarette & drive me wild

I'm just having fun feeling nothing
Track Name: Wallflower
melancholy flowers hanging on your wall
I was a mess, now I'm just a flower on your wall
I was impressed cause I wanted to hear you talk
I'm still impressed i will want to you hear you talk

lips like a noose hanging on every word you say
got your graveyard teeth, oh please let me spend eternity
got these pale blue eyes, go ahead & take them right from me
Maybe then you'll see everything that I see

I was a mess now I'm just a flower on you wall
Track Name: The Youth is Out There
bored to death with all this talking
its becoming trite
conversations like a coffin
I'm buried alive

everybody is so connected
everybody is making me sick

everything lasts forever
nothing gets erased
humanity's been severed
no on seems phased

I'm sick

everybody's delusional
and I am too
