Track Name: Black Geometry
this is just so over
when the milk was spilt so long ago there's no room for pain or longing
this is just so over
in a town where everybody's cold there's no light and my seeds can't grow

it's over
black geometry
i sing in
"i don't need you"

this is just so over
even when the first kiss was long ago there's no room for tears or longing
this is just so over
where i'm going i don't want you to go, i took the night so you'll never know

it's over
black geometry
i sing out
"i don't need you"

these words i say them to your face
i wanna ride your coffin in
Track Name: The Coast Is Closed
you pack your shit in the van and you say your goodbyes
you'll make your friends so jealous
leave them hanging on the phone
gonna take what's yours
trading out the blue sky for a scene so sick it just might make one of us choke

go, because we don't want you here
the coast is closed

california sun, fuck it
new york style, fuck it
portland hip, fuck it
Track Name: Paid Piper
paid piper
gave him time, gave him blood, gave him money
i paid the piper
with the death of my one and only
distract my beating heart
and disown me
i'm the kid that you never wanted

i found a four leaf clover
i pinned it to my wall
just like a rabbit skinned hanging out on a limb
boiling pot to break my fall

it's decided
the blood is rushing to a fist i form alone
Track Name: Ripped
if you can see this war, you're in my company
life's like an open book i never learned to read
this is the price you pay for walking the right way
discipline gave me shit and time is killing me

i see it ripped wide open
those guts look great to me
i see it ripped wide open
those guts look great to me

if you can be this war, you're in my company
life's like an open book you never learned to read
this is the price you pay for walking the right way
discipline gave you shit and time is killing me

i see it ripped wide open
those guts look great to me
i see it ripped wide open
those guts look great to me

i don't want your sympathy
don't want your admonition
just stay out of my fucking way

i see it ripped wide open
those guts look great to me
Track Name: Time Elapsed
it never turns out right
the roads that we follow
we could go tonight and never see tomorrow

well, it's okay
it's only sunshine
embrace the tiny light
well, it's okay
you're not satisfied
record the time elapsed

it's never worth the fight
for the calm that you wanted
you never had control
you know she won't stay

well, it's okay
it's only sunshine
embrace the tiny light
well, it's okay
you're not satisfied
record the time elapsed
Track Name: Dig Your Own Grave
let only what you love tear you down
one piece at a time
you can make it the right size when you dig your own grave

your face as you wanted
your hands folded tight
a slight smile only
in the corners of your mouth

let only what you love tear you down
one piece at a time
you can make it the right size when you dig your own grave

your face as you wanted
your hands folded tight
and time will cover up the corners of your mouth
