Track Name: Candy
i go straight for candy
once it was a tasty thing

now it just covers silence
repeats until it falls asleep

falls asleep
falls asleep

i waste your time, you’ve wasted mine
a showdown with monotony

i’m on the slide, i still like the ride,
another one-night-stand completes me

completes me
completes me

15 miles high and 50 grand in debt
i will take my chances on an air-o-plane

1 another prototype, something new, someone who just might want me

2 another prototype, something warm, someone who just might melt me

3 another prototype, for something new, someone who just might take me

you’re fired in your best sunday clothes

before I start I’m in too deep
before I start I’m in too deep
Track Name: Wretched Love
if i’d known two years ago that everything you said and wrote was wrong I would have wrote you off

and if i’d known a year ago that everything you said and wrote was wrong I would have wrote you off

oh, if oh I’d only known I would have left so long ago, with all my wretched love

in between the empty space one morning you will lose your face and all your wretched love

underneath you man of straw, your shameless explanations draw you closer to that edge

oh, if oh I’d only known I would have left so long ago, with all my wretched love

oh, if oh I’d only known I would have left so long ago
Track Name: Twisted Times
TWISTED TIMES

it’s a twisted time of twisted thieves, who acquire friendly captives
that they give up and they’ll give in, for an invitation to the party
heavy sounds of heavy engines, trenches, mortars, there is nothing but skeletons here

everyday it’s getting bigger, everyday the cancer grows
a doll that eats and eats and eats, she’s underneath your satin sheets
it’s the whores you’ve made of the childlike faithful in a world where only demons seek the truth

your carbon breath the dance of death, a fire the burns everything
after all the blood and flames your memory will fail you once again
Track Name: Go Away
you had your palm read at the beach in LA and she said there’s gonna be tears

i’d like to find the most generic way to say go away

head stuck in a video game, you’ve got your head stuck in a video game
you can dress me up and hit me, yeah your moves will never changed
but for all your lack of subtlety your damn good when you play

i’d like to find the most generic way to say go away

i am not crying, it’s not because I never cry
i’ve been just drying up and smelling like a fire
i’ve been looking for your excuses, but I can’t kill them all
are you coming to my bedroom can I help you with the fall?

i’d like to find the most generic way to say go away

you had your palm read at the beach in LA and she said there’s gonna be tears
