Track Name: Lush Woods
i want a girl that thinks she's ugly
she ties her coal black hair in a knot
i want a girl that can't sleep at night
she's got the shit tied up in her brain

can't take her to church and i just can't take her home

i want a girl sleeping in her clothes
wants what she wants and she wants it right
i want a girl getting cheap tattoos
she's not afraid to turn me inside out

can't take her to church and i just can't take her home
say what you want
we woke up in the lush woods

i want a girl that doesn't want me
she don't even know my name
i want a girl bored at my funeral
she rolls her eyes standing in the rain

can't take her to church and i just can't take her home
say what you want
we woke up in the lush woods

wasted always
wasted on my knees
the trouble always found down deep in the extraction
wasted always
wasted on my knees
the trouble always caught in the guilt of bad intentions
...and you know them
Track Name: Sinking Ship
you lost the compass star
you tossed upon the waves
you don't know where you are
you wander aimlessly

i won't complain much
while this ship is sinking

i'm tossed against the wall
so you can watch me bleed
you want to watch me fall
i'll cut you just the same

i won't complain much
while this ship is sinking

i've seen the light of day
your way is the past
my life will float away
safe here on this raft
Track Name: No Good So Far
this town is made of wool i just pull over
my eyes can't find a way to take it sober

i've come to find the virtue but release me from this closing mind

this town's a caving wall i just can't shoulder
my eyes can't find a way to take it sober

i've come to find the virtue but release me from this closing mind
i'm sorry, i know no one wants my broken bones

LFK
i love and hate you
no good so far
so good so far

this town's a caving wall i just can't shoulder
you want to save the world and then it's over

i've come to find the virtue but release me from this closing mind
i'm sorry, i know no one wants my broken bones

just before i blow my head off
drag my body through the streets
let the townies point and stare
let the idiots repeat

LFK
i love and hate you
no good so far
so good so far
Track Name: The Bitch and The Bastard
she comes in like a lion
she'll give you what you need
she'll break your bad habits
she'll bring you to your knees
put you to work

you got it dead wrong
you got it dead wrong

he'll come in like a lamb
he'll give you what you need
he'll wrap his arms around you
he'll bring you to your knees

you pray that bitch would burn off
you pay that bastard through the nose
you pray that bitch would burn off
but you wound her up now you gotta let her go

you got it dead wrong
you got it dead wrong
Track Name: Closed Gate
so you think since you came this far
somebody's gonna hold your hand
somebody's gonna ring the bell
and kiss the scars
and wish you well

you know they'd rather break your heart
and hold you down while the gate is closing

so you think since you came this far
somebody's gonna hold your hand
somebody's gonna ring the bell
and kiss the scars
and wish you well

you know they'd rather break your heart
and hold you down while the gate is closing

the empty places you play
the lonely drives across the interstate
until you finally say to yourself, "this isn't me."

i never wanted
nothing at all
Track Name: Crease Then Fold
now we're peeling the plastic off
now we're placing it in each hand
if i turn it on will it change my life?
now we're peeling the plastic off
now we're placing it in each hand
taking care, did i spend my money right?

you've got to crease then fold
let the script now play out
would you be so bold
to turn this thing off a burning bridge?
to kiss the enemy?

now we're peeling the plastic off
now we're warming it in our hands
if i plug it in will it show me the light?
now we're peeling the plastic off
now we're warming it in our hands?
taking care, did i spend my money right?

you've got to crease then fold
let the script now play out
would you be so bold
to turn this thing off a burning bridge?
to kiss the enemy?

i just might start in the back of your mind
then crawl me way out through your eyes
i'll spread a smile across your face
then i'll pin my ears back in their place
now nothing turns you on
not skin, not blood, not song
