Track Name: In the Web
Don't you think I see what's written in the web you weave
Don't you think I see why you keep coming back to me
I'm free now I'm free and I don't need your sympathy
I'm free now I'm free so don't you lay your trip on me

I'm free I'm free I'm free I'm free

Don't you see the fates sent you to test my clarity
Don't you see the stars are burning you in effigy
I'm free now I'm free and I've reclaimed my sanity
I'm free now I'm free and there is only one of me

I'm free I'm free I'm free I'm free

Don't you think I see I'm not your bleeding currency
Don't you see that I'm becoming who I'm meant to be
I'm free now I'm free and I will prove myself worthy
I'm free now I'm free and I'm reweaving destiny

I'm free I'm free I'm free I'm free
Track Name: Transient
Something sleeping in your eyes
Is an arson
And I’m a moth
Succumb
Overwhelmed by flames I succumb

Midnight
On the bridge again
And I’m sinking like a stone
Forever
Into the black
And nether

Never really there
Always in between
Transient
Never really there
Always in between
Transient

Three A.M.
In Emergency
Drowning in a sea of faces
Under
Can’t catch my breath
I go under

Never really there
Always in between
Transient
Never really there
Always in between
Transient

Daybreak downtown
Sleeping on the bus
I didn’t miss my stop
I’m never getting off
Track Name: The Dark is Rising
The day recalls the night
Say I love you and goodbye
They only touch each other twice
I lost the shape of your voice
How it felt inside
Like something beautiful had died

When love oh when
Are you going to let me in
For the air out here grows thin
And the dark is rising
Why love oh why
Do I always make you cry
When I ask you’ve no reply
And the dark is rising

We trade our hows for whys
Empty truth and loving lies
They only touch each other twice
They say that loves a lie
But I can’t tell from the outside
Touch me once before we die

When love oh when
Are you going to let me in
For the air out here grows thin
And the dark is rising
Why love oh why
Do I always make you cry
When I ask you’ve no reply
And the dark is rising
How girl oh how
Could you ever love me now
As the starlight circles round
The event horizon
Track Name: Dead
We're already dead
And we're living a memory
Free will's an illusion
We all dance in synchrony

Reliving our pain
Again and again
And again and again
Until nothing remains
Just needles and pins
Reweaving the tapestry

We're already dead
And we're living a memory
Free will's an illusion
We all dance in synchrony

Reliving our pain
Again and again
And again and again
Until nothing remains
Just needles and pins
Reweaving the tapestry
Living a memory
Track Name: Damnation
I've seen in visions of my own
Where dead men feast of flesh and bone
And all are utterly alone
In damnation

The skies are black the earth is red
A whirling globe of living dead
Embrace in ecstasy and dread
In damnation

The horror is they love it here
And each one lives on the other's fear
The more delicious the more severe
In damnation

I saw it in a waking dream
The most horrific the most obscene
And I will never forget the screams
In damnation
Track Name: It's Only Human
I live in the dark
Where I hear every sound
I live all alone
With everyone around
I live in the night
I’ve never seen my face
I hide from the light
In the blackest of space

Please ask me to stay here
Please ask me to go
No one else can really see me
You’re the only soul I know
All the hungry people want me
And they won’t leave me alone
It’s only human to be hungry
But it eats me to the bone

I’m drowning in the dark
I’m sinking like a stone
I’ve loved all I have lost
And I’ve lost all I have known
I die when I dream
I cry when you smile
Please stay here with me if just for awhile

Please ask me to stay here
Please ask me to go
No one else can really see me
You’re the only soul I know
All the hungry people want me
And they won’t leave me alone
It’s only human to be hungry
But it eats me to the bone

The wind is all around me now
There’s no place left to go
The rain is cool upon my face
A face I’ll never know
Track Name: How He Didn't Mind the Sun
I had a dream about heaven
And everybody got to come
All my friends were at the party
Sometimes more than once
Someone dimmed the lights and
Put the record player on
It was that Butthole Surfers song
From when I was young
About how he didn’t mind the sun...sometimes

And I don’t care if you don’t mind the sun
I don’t mind if you love the rain
There was something missing in my heart
And now its gone
But I don’t want to understand the pain

I live in two places in my mind and in my head
One is trying to put it all together
The other one is just pretending to be dead
Heaven must lie somewhere between them
But I’ve lost the heart to stop the train
I tried to tell the conductor
But he couldn’t hear a word I said now
And what I said was…

I don’t care if you don’t mind the sun
I don’t mind if you love the rain
There was something missing in my heart
And now its gone
But I don’t want to understand the pain

The D.J. said my dream was almost over
And if I had any last requests
I said can you put my two worlds together
He told me if he did that there’d be nothing left
He asked me if id like to remember
I asked him if its really like this to be dead
He said its time to get in line for the big picture
A flash of light and the Surfers song
Played in my head
Back in my bed now

And I don’t care if you don’t mind the sun
I don’t mind if you love the rain
There was something missing in my heart
And now its gone
But I don’t want to understand the pain… sometimes
Track Name: High
When I was young
I took a lot of drugs
It was all in fun
Just a way to cop a buzz
Now I am old
And I take a lot of drugs
To keep my mind controlled
Put it back the way it was

Cause I've been very high
Planetary high
I've seen angels walking by
I've seen spaceships fill the sky
And I've been very stoned
Just talking all alone
Until a voice said one day
That my mind was gone

Is it just me
Or am I no longer me
Try to keep my chemistry
All in perfect harmony
If I stop taking drugs
It would be like taking drugs
And I don't wanna get high
I've already seen enough

Cause I've been very high
Planetary high
I've seen angels walking by
I've seen spaceships fill the sky
And I've been very stoned
Just talking all alone
Until a voice said one day
That my mind was gone

And the question is
did I wanna come down
And the question is
Did I really come down
And the question is
will I ever come down
And the question is
And the question is

Cause I've been very high
Planetary high
I've seen angels walking by
I've seen spaceships fill the sky
And I've been very stoned
Just talking all alone
Until a voice said one day
That my mind was gone
Track Name: Telephoned Ahead
I’ve been saving up
Putting change away
Counting all my eggs
For a rainy day

I’ve been here so long
I forgot my name
Telephoned ahead
But you never came

I’ve been saving up
But the stores are closed
I should just get out
Go to see some shows

I’ve been here so long
I forgot my name
Telephoned ahead
But you never came

I’ve been saving up
Little more each day
I may have enough
But it’s hard to say

I’ve been here so long
I forgot my name
Telephoned ahead
But you never came

I’ve been saving up
Since the edge of time
How much it will cost
Just to make you mine

I’ve been here so long
To give you my name
Telephone is dead
And your numbers changed
Track Name: Heaven
When we were in Heaven
We crashed our cars repeatedly
We died ten thousand times a day
We gathered up starlight
From every galaxy
To make one drop of paint

Your feet would never
Touch the floor
My hand would pass
Right through the door
And we would slowly slip away

When we were in Heaven
We crashed our cars repeatedly
We died ten thousand times a day

Your feet would never
Touch the floor
My hand would pass
Right through the door
And we would slowly slip away

When we were in Heaven
I found myself alone again
You were never there
Just memories of pain
Track Name: Heart Attack
My neighbor’s dog died
There was nothing they could do
It happens every day
It was all he had left
There was nothing he could do
It gave him a heart attack

Please god don’t let it end this way
Don’t ever let it end
Please god don't take my life away
Please god don't kill my friends

Please god don’t let it end this way
Don’t ever let it end
Please god don't take my life away
Please god don't kill my friends

It was all he had left
There was nothing he could do
It gave him a heart attack
Track Name: Spilled
I can’t tell you what
This song’s about
I’ve got something dark
Words won’t let out

Some things worth crying for
Are best left spilled
Some thoughts seem randomized
And some seem willed
If everything made sense
There’d be no faith
We would possess ourselves
Cursed like a wraith

I can’t tell you what
This song’s about
I’ve got something dark
Words won’t let out

The electricity
Beneath my skin
Is just a trickle of
What lies within
I would betray myself
If I weren't here
I am the only thing
That’s left to fear

Some things worth crying for
Are best left spilled
Some thoughts seem randomized
And some seem willed
If everything made sense
There’d be no faith
We would possess ourselves
Cursed like a wraith

I can’t tell you what
This song’s about
I’ve got something dark
Words won’t let out
Track Name: The Waiting Game
Counting up the colors of the passing cars
Rivers on the rise I wonder where you are
Metal on the railing makes my fingers numb
Waitin’ on the bridge for you or day to come
Pacing through the puddles on the pavement grey
No one here to talk to and nothing to say
Stare at something long enough it looks the same
Takes a dedicated brain to play the waiting game

I could have sworn that it was you
But when I looked I saw right through
You turned and looked right through me too
Like there was nothing we could do
I chased behind and called your name
I took a breath but nothing came
A good man goes, a sad man stays
We must be destined to this maze

Sing another song so I don’t fall asleep
Pitching dirty pennies in the dirty deep
Only god can say now where the devil you’re at
And I will be damned if he will tell me that
Shiver in the wind and watch the rising sun
The toil of the wicked man is never done
Been out here so long now don’t know where I’m from
All that I am sure of is it’s not my home

I could have sworn that it was you
But when I looked I saw right through
You turned and looked right through me too
Like there was nothing we could do
I chased behind and called your name
I took a breath but nothing came
A good man goes, a sad man stays
We must be destined to this maze

Counting up the colors of the passing cars
Rivers on the rise I wonder where you are
Metal on the railing makes my fingers numb
Waitin’ on the bridge for you or day to come
Pacing through the puddles on the pavement grey
No one here to talk to and nothing to say
Stare at something long enough it looks the same
Takes a dedicated brain to play the waiting game
Track Name: Open Window
It’s always the open window that gets all the rain
If you open your heart to me you’ll feel only pain
I never look back behind me until I run dry
So I’m running on empty most all of the time

The sun is shining open the shades
Open the window to let in the breeze
On the other side the world’s open wide
But where you are not is all I can see

Lift you up on my shoulders to check out the stage
The smoke machines cough girls are dancing in a cage
I shout out above the chorus that will be me someday
But I know you don’t hear me its better that way

The sky is falling but inside it is warm
The more that I feel the softer the pain
The rains destination is the also its source
So hard to miss until it’s gone again

When you reach out to touch me the air comes in waves
And my heart starts to shiver as it is dancing in a cage
Just one touch of your fingers and everything breaks
And I can’t see the shape of your shadow in the rain

If all the worlds riches are heaped upon me
You’ll still find me somewhere I don’t want to be
When they take out my stitches you can open your eyes
Some things never heal no matter how hard they try

It’s always the open window that gets all the rain
If you open your heart to me you’ll feel only pain
I never look back behind me until I run dry
So I’m running on empty most all of the time
Track Name: You
I don't mean to bother
I don't mind if you don't
Have the time
It's alright
But there's not another
Who could tell me that it will
All be fine
So I can sleep tonight

I don't know how to say this
But I've got to tell you
You're the reason that I even try
I don't know how to say this
But I've got to tell you
You're the reason that I'm still alive

So if I call to often
Understand you're where my
Tether’s tied
So I don't fly
And if I just stop calling
Call me up to see if
I'm alright
I might not be alright

I don't know how to say this
But I've got to tell you
You're the reason that I even try
I don't know how to say this
But I've got to tell you
You're the reason that I'm still alive
