Track Name: Whatever This Is
everything's fine
peachy as a key lime
let me revise
I'm not convinced by my own lies
I wanna feel young not scared
pure love that's not impaired
invite chance
flee death by romance

whatever this is, whatever you do
better or worse share all the news
common as the cold you understand

my favourite dream
is a partial nightmare
you said come clean
that it's only fair
it's like the closest kiss
is using your chapstick
such a long long longing
a puzzle worth solving

whatever this is, whatever you do
better or worse share all the news
common as the cold you understand
let it die or become friends
so droughts can turn to floods
Track Name: Stability
tell me did you forget
those mistakes you made and will never regret
how long must i accept
to take more for less what the fucks success
strange things have been happening
its been twenty years of constant change
so pull out or you're locked in
he said the pleasures mine with the lights set dim

found stability that i never understood
find it's childish to assume I'm up to no good
play it safe
no way jose
sorry man but that's not me
call it off
okay your way
I'm not one to beg or plead

what's best for you could simply be the worst for me

made moves to divide the cause
stick with my best friends always be enthralled
cuz I'll freeze if I stand still
in nullifying routines of the modern world

found stability that i never understood
find it's childish to assume I'm up to no good
play it safe
no way jose
sorry man but that's not me
call it off
okay your way
I'm not one to beg or plead

what's best for you could simply be the worst for me
Track Name: Creep Me Out
some here have sharper tongues
are more confident than catholic nuns about
going off to another land with those who served
and held His hand
so I have a more concrete concern
it's know here you'll never learn and if
selfishness is the wrong turn then I've done wrong
in hell I'll burn

and don't stay long
cuz you creep me out
going door to door
get out

my brain told me today
the reason you participate in a
book club that helps mankind
cuz you need beleifs and faith is fine
just know the good news is in your head
where lonely desperations bred
if I was ringing bells I'd probably say
forget your death
live for today

and dont stay long
cuz you creep me out
going door to door
get out

I shew them away and you ask why
when strangers come with their advice
Track Name: Made To Change
where'd you grow up whatcha into
still so much I haven't outgrown
city parades at a young age
flipping through but can't pick a page
you always looked good but mostly felt sad
wonder if childhood's the best you'll ever have
how I think not but you say so
one of two things grow and grow

garden snake wrapped round you finger
how anxieties made a statement
due to history where's the mystery
if the cat was killed by curiosity
then I'll die just the same
first human buried in a pet cemetery
you said stop I must go
happiness can grow and grow

did you grow up can you see through
that a whim's not worth breaking what's true
giving advice with sugar comes spice
want the sweets but can't stand to take the bite
good intentions that I refuse
it's all right if you're the type to pick and choose
silence attacks and i hope that
loneliness wont grow and grow

wait don't let me melt alone
assume the best when you are gone
you're the one I love and fear the most
of all you breed a pain then take it all
away
Track Name: Dr.Acula
skeptical of this
always hit or miss
wanna touch with out desire
never would expect
me to be a wreck
leaving New York was hell

I wish I could let you down
make you cry when I'm not around
is there anyway, anything I can say
a simple way to show. . .

everything you meant
cynical and bent
I need to get back those days
when I would take on love
as hands will fit in gloves
still a part of me that cares

I wish I could let you down
make you cry when I'm not around
is there anyway, anything I can say
a simple way to show
is there anyway, anything I can say
a simple way to show. . .

you that I am not quite sure yet
pictured you and all the late nights calls
as a zombie dreading all the university halls
and my thoughts of you brought sadness
since you wrote the end
the conclusion wasn't my taste but I can pretend
and I am not quite sure why
I still care
Track Name: Liza Liza
Well you got the worst
none of this was suppose to hurt
can I keep trying
running this race but my feet are tired
I swore it was only in your head
here's to the nights where we felt misled
oh Liza

ready for a start
never could leave you in the dark
like I once did
kept it to myself like a greedy kid
I know it was only in my head
here's to the nights where you felt misled
oh Liza Liza

let it run down so smooth that I didn't get a taste
has it all has it all run dry
medicine we both use there's a world I see alive
honestly I don't know why
wanna share some cheap wine work the knots around your spine
has it all has it all run dry
playing catch in Bellewoods without me if you feel good
I'll sit out sit out to the side

we both got the worst
it just lined up that you were first
I can't deny something that made us try and try
it remains only something in our heads
here's to the nights and a passion dead
oh Liza Liza
Track Name: Plasticine
i think so naturally i need less to be free
i cant forget to go outside and do the things i know i need to do
new
hold my breath and run for cover
hiding from my former lovers
showing them how stupid i can be

i told you i was gonna lose this
in ways i wish i never had it

what's happening to me
these hearts of plasticine
pulled apart by lack of magic
im holding out my hand to gravity
i see
things i use to do with my time
wasting all the things i call mine
everything is gonna change today

i told you i was gonna lose this
in ways i wish i never had it
Track Name: I Live With Monsters
call me quickly I've been followed home
you're just in time to unlock the door

wrapped on my neck shoot it off my back
I heard you killed a thousand times before

I live with monsters who shake my bed and keep me up all night
and dirty up the sheets
I live with monsters who shake my bed and keep me up all night
all night

talking of days when you'd always have your way
there has to be a storm to bring the light
now why would you take from me
the outcome was tragically placed here perfectly
you shaped a cunning piece for eyes to see

I live with monsters who shake my bed and keep me up all night
and dirty up the sheets
I live with monsters who shake my bed and keep me up all night
all night
Track Name: Tuff Luck
In a Q45 at such a tender age
cutting toothpick lines just to start the day
the suburban kids rich rebels skids made
up their own tough luck and clearly lost their way home

we've got the tools to help you fall apart
set you head aflame and steal the fire from your heart
roll up John A he'd chew threw his grave if
he knew his legacy assisted with a hit

back seats dead youth
big homes sad truth
hurts
having options left us dull as tin
how
all the pretty things we could've been

in a Q45 forgetting to accept
fleeting ecstasy and the secrets that we kept
increased amounts and denial counts when
you still carry on but never reach the same high

back seats dead youth
big homes sad truth
hurts
having options left us dull as tin
how
all the pretty things we could've been
Track Name: White Moon
in my backyard we watch a dull night burn bright
pink spider webs against the white moon and burning balloons
i watched them all and admired them as a different friend
some caught and clicked like the draw of a switchblade and there I laid

wondering which one would be me
wondering which one would be me
acted absentmindedly
white moon backdrops for the scene

each one burnt out almost willingly to a cold cup of tea
some put up fights burning holes in the ground just to stick around

wondering which one would be me
wondering which one would be me
acted absent mindedly
white moon backdrops for the scene
i wanna know which one i could be
i wanna know which one i could be
accept my state currently
and build from what's here naturally

multicoloured portions fly they're chemicals like you and i
from fireworks that burn and char the beauty joining summer stars
im tired of being blue and thick make me the brightest and well lit
is it my fault i get so down my chemisty or just this town?
Track Name: Alarms (bonus track)
sounding of alarms and no ones rushing out
dying has its charm one we dont talk about
lose ground when i take the wrong route
into seas of doubt

asking what its worth its been the question
shortly after birth craving attention
astray being lost when i find
blind leading the blind

if this house isnt haunted i am

take another look at all the options
deadlines are arranged for one adoption
comfort in the one place thats home
your body, alone

now ill always mind for what im mining
constantly a search but never finding
closer than i ever have felt
without a ton of help

if this house isnt haunted i am
i am
