Track Name: Pink Book
The words in your mouth don't ever get out
They're knives in your torso
You bleed to death and deflate

Your body is scarless
Your skin is colorless
If you only knew you survive at the cost of living

My lips are gone from all the times I bit them
And my heart stopped pumping way before I dropped dead

So don't let the six feet pilled on your head
Keep you from digging your body out of bed, don't let it
Your life is your love so let out the feeling
See who's for good and who's good for the killing

My lips are gone from all the times I bit them
And my heart stopped pumping way before I dropped dead

The words in your mouth don't ever get out
They're knives in your torso
You bleed to death

Your pink book is burning a hole in your pocket
Track Name: My Sister's Husband
I can't see you getting old
Don't let hubby buy your soul

You'll pour your tears in his lovin' cup
then won't have a one to shed
when he doesn't fill yours up

And one of these days you'll get caught in a cage
and you'll try to forget the moment
I told you that this mistake will be your

Face

Your problems on your own
My head is about to blow

I'm melting down, I'm melting down.
Memories of when you were innocent
are oozing out of my pores
I'm not saying you can't be his, but why can't I still be yours?

How does it feel to get so good at using that middle finger on your big brother?
I wanna know if your heart even twitches when I ask you
How does it feel? How does it feel
to fly so high the wind won't let you come down
Track Name: Out of the Sea, Into Circuitry
Do you formulate
Your words to say
What will equate?

Your x and y's
Your broken science
See you die

All that we see
Is alchemy
Riddled with hopes for chemistry

I'll bring down my staff
And break your math
To raise the path

Earth's the tank they put you in to make sure that you can not win
They catch you right when you begin then gouge your eyes, cut off your fins
Stick the needle in your skin 'cause that's what puts the ideas in
They take the power from honest men and give it to the evil twins

They tell you that the world you're in is better than it's ever been
But somewhere there's a man with fins and eyes and ears and healthy skin
Who knows that there's a problem when our lungs can't fill with oxygen
Without taking the evil in and turning our blood black with sin
Track Name: Lightning Horse
Lacking of substance innately there
Pulled across oceans to go nowhere
Sin builds the distance we've held between
Three planets parted by outer space
Drawn to the teachings of a painted face

Hunger, the state of modern minds
Deaf, but given ears with time to find
Dumb losing sleep so they can hear the blind
Detail the plans for a greater fall
See how the giant chooses to be small

Lightning horses
Unheard voices
Untouched places
Unnamed, faceless
