Track Name: Lose My Voice
I wake up every morning with air in my throat
Let it out when it don't matter
Let it stagnate when I need it the most
I think I find some words
then wait till it's too late for them to be heard
This voice its got dynamic
This voice its got a range
Its got something to say to somebody somewhere if
I ever let it out of its cage

I'll shout till I lose my voice
or else I'll lose my voice for good
I'll shout till I lose my voice
before I lose my voice
forever, oh waoh

As my bones atrophy from lack of use,
my eyes memorize the back of my eyelids
and my lungs grow weak hidden within
I'm sure they'll seal up soon
But there's an edge, that I can't lose
there's a point I can't compromise
It seems these days it's do or die
I guess it's time I choose

I'll shout till I lose my voice
or else I'll lose my voice for good
I'll shout till I lose my voice
I'll shout "I ain't got no
choice, no choice nooo
nooo oh waohwaohwaoh!"

The silence isn't peace, it's death
This silence isn't peace, it's death
This silence isn't peace, it's death
This silence isn't peace, it's death
Track Name: So It Isn't Love
I am the sun and you're the moon
I bathe you in light, and you reflect back a pale sight
but that ain't love
I am the shark that you cling too
Our symbiosis makes me swoon
So I get clean and you get food
But it ain't love No...

But have no fear
Love is a fickle thing, but we don't need to worry dear
Your shoes look pretty
and I love what you've done with your hair
Weave your arm inside mine, darling
and I'll pretend that I don't care that

I'm the bullet
And you're the gun
You kiss me hard to get me started
so I'll fly off to prove your aim was true
But it ain't love

I am the tea and you're the cup
When we get close you warm me up
and I bleed out until I'm
done disposed and colder than when I'd begun
'cause this ain't love
Yeah, this ain't love
this ain't love

JUST LIKE MATTER TO ENERGY,
LOVE EXPLODES DILUTES THEN DRIFTS AWAY

JUST LIKE THE EARTH SPINS ON EVERY DAY,
WERE GETTING CLOSER AND CLOSER AND CLOSER TO NOTHING!

You've already given up
You cry to see but you glue your eyes shut
You cry for purity, but you feel naked WITHOUT THE MUD!
You cry for me now but how could this be love?
You cry for me now but
HOW COULD THIS BE LOVE?

SO IT ISN'T LOVE, SO IT ISN'T LOVE
WHO GIVES A FUCK, WHO GIVES A FUCK?
SO IT ISN'T LOVE, WHO GIVES A FUCK
WHO GIVES A FUCK? NOT ME!

IT'S JUST ENTROPY IT'S JUST ENTROPY,
WHO GIVES A FUCK? NOT ME! NOT ME!!
IT'S JUST ENTROPY, WHO GIVES A FUCK
WHO GIVES A FUCK? NOT ME!!!
Track Name: Outnumbered
The bad ones make me numb
And the good ones all die young
It's what the great physicist ordered
But it's not what I wanted

My heads gone dumb and my stomachs turning
They make you swallow the sun and ignore the burning
I could be there, yeah I should be there
But I'm a logical, bastard as always

I need to see you!
I need to make you know!
It doesn't matter where you go
and it doesn't matter where I am

I need to see you!
I need to make you know!
That it's the two of as against the world
and that Motherfucker's outnumbered!

If you break your arm or if you break your heart
Just call me up; I'll pick up every shard
Life's an unttrained mutt; when you look away,
it shits all over the carpet

I need to see you!
I need make you know!
It doesn't matter where you go
and it doesn't matter where I am

I need to see you!
I need to make you know!
That it's the two of us against the world
That Motherfucker's outnumbered!!

I need to see you!
I need to make you know!
It doesn't matter where you go
And it doesn't matter where I am

I need to see you!
I need to make you know!
It's the two of us against the world, and
That Motherfucker's outnumbered, Anne!!!!

You got all the looks
And just 'bout all the brains
And a spark that's gonna start a fire
Gonna burn into the sky twisting and
spelling out your

NAME!
Oooooh oh
IT'S GONNA BE OKAY!
Oooooh oh
IT'S GONNA BE AMAZING
Oooooh oh
IT'S ALWAYS BEEN AMAZING
Oooooh
AND I KNOW IT AIN'T GONNA CHANGE!!!!
Track Name: What Now (Part 1 & 3)
What now?
What am I to do?
I thought I always new what was right
And my rightful place with you

The air between our skin
that used to mean nothin'
it's thickened, it's conductin' somthin'
and I'm so afraid to touch it

Your a river
How could I want you for myself?
And when the winds change with the spring rains
How could I ever be enough?

You fell
Softer than a cloud
Eyes closed without a doubt unto me
Your colors shapes and sounds

We melt
It isn't quite like you
It isn't quite like me, what we've made
And its beautiful and true

What now?
What am I to do?
I thought I always knew who I was
Now part of that means you

Your a tapestry
Woven from rocks and frogs and song
If our story changes in the coming pages

However long

Real love is never wrong

However far apart, our quilted hearts will bring some of you

Will bring some of me

I'll bring some of you along
Track Name: Underground
Live underground
Try not to make a sound
Their holy, white feet
Trample all over me
When they go, I am
Finally alone, waiting in the stone

I am stuck, finally
In a place with no between
I don't want you to see my face
In the bad lighting of this place
It's just me inside this city
I don't need you're fucking pity

Why can't you leave me alone?
You know I never wanna go back home
Forget your drills and fuck the shovels
You don't know what it's like to see your life get leveled

We'll talk after I see you fall
through these frozen back halls
I don't wanna die!
Blinded by the light!

I can't stand seeing you under all this earth
What you think doesn't change how much your worth
I'll push you away so you can touch the sky
In a bright place where you can never die

Don't look down on me
I don't want you to see

Don't look down on me
There's nothing here to see

Why can't you leave me alone?
You know I never wanna go back home
Forget your drills and fuck the shovels
You don't know what it's like to see your life get leveled

We'll talk after I see you fall
through these frozen black halls
I don't wanna die!
Not in front of your eyes!
Track Name: Octobers Passed
Summers come and go
But Winters leave marks on your bones
God only knows I feel so damn old
and sore

But I'm in here again
The warm box that keeps me out of the wind
And every day I sleep more and more
But this year I'm older than ever

Lovers melt trails in the snow
Warm skin to soften the edge of the cold
My hearts burning up
but I'm freezing in here alone

But I'll get along
Cold pavement treadmills with headphones on
we'll pass each other like ships in the night
'cause I won't raise my eye

The heat leaves the air and
I can't help thinkin' 'bout her

She might be dead and gone, but the
part of her in me comes to life this time each year

Just go on I'll catch up when I'm done
Raise a glass, toast the last of Octobers passed

The Summers come and go
But Winters leave marks on your bones
And God only knows I feel so damn old
and sore

But I'll get along
Cold pavement treadmills with headphones on
And we'll pass each other, like ships in the night
'cause I won't raise my eye

The heat leaves the air and
I can't help thinkin' 'bout her

She might be dead and gone, but the
part of her in me comes to life this time each year

Just go on I'll catch up when I'm done
Raise a glass, toast the last of Octobers passed

Oooos
