Track Name: Always About The Ones Who Have It All
I just want to go away
take my songs to the cold lands
sing to the wolves, sing for the sound
forget about what's going on.

Oh my god, so much more than I imagined
Oh my god, so much more.

Stars glow, it's cold as the night
it's a nice time to take it all.

Oh my god, it's more than I can live with
Oh my god, more than I can ignore.

Forget about what's going on.
Track Name: Wonder
If I were a hard man
I'd take my chances with you
You wouldn't tell me what to do
When I was through, you'd be through.

... I don't know
you tell me "I don't know"
it's a wonder we're all still alive
You take it for granted
You say "it's alright".

Don't you think you know?
It's all I know.

Don't you think you know?
You take it all the way down.

There you go...
You tell me "I don't know"
It's a wonder we're all still alive.
You take it for granted
You say 'it's alright'.
Track Name: Paint It Grey
Gotta paint it grey, for the wishful ones
Don't let them shame you away
There's no shame in what you're saying.

There's pain
oh, there's pain
all up and down your spine.
Track Name: Don't You Worry
Oh, It's been a lonely time
... god's picking off the lonely ones.

Life's coming on so hard
I beg of you.

They won't know what they stole
I won't know what I sold them
Don't you worry,
What you were died in the womb
Don't you forget,
I won't survive without you.

Don't you worry
Life's coming on
Don't you worry
Track Name: Go Down
Let me go down

Dare you say where?
Where you been?
All my powers resign
back to the stone age
one could say-
what's on your mind?
let me pick it for a spell
an eye to a fine theatre

You say how long?
How long must this filthy outrage shove on?
Shove on,
My dear, shove on...
Shove on.

The memories,
Oh, the memories
will all wring your neck strong

Let me go down
Track Name: Life As It Is
I lost my love, lost my soul
Found my heart inside an old broken home
Lost my love to the last thing I'd love

I'll take my life as it is
but I won't shake the life of it.

What have I done to you?

I should have known you would bleed my soul
if I had known...

I should have known you would bleed my soul
should have known...
I would have gone down another road.

What have I done to you?
Track Name: The Long Road
You want to see me destroyed

What did I do?

It's a funny thing
you don't know
it's a long road

You want to see me destroyed.
Track Name: A Vein
There's a point in everyone's life
where they get sick of everyone telling them
they get sick of hearing
there's a point to life

There's a vein screaming in your system
beauty is the world, god
unless you're vain, it's all arranged

I don't know why you chose me
I wouldn't know
I'm not that alive

The sketchier the better for me
