Track Name: I Was A Blanket
i was a blanket, in the dark. you were naked.
you were my sidekick, in my mind you would like this

i will love you, even when you're gone
unless i go first. prepare for the worst.

i was a flame, smoke and tears and never the same.
you were alive, i was undead. i swear that i tried

i will love you, even when you're gone
unless i go first, you will gather
all my remains and dust below your feet
on the beach, close your eyes and breathe.
i'll be the earth and the wind and the sea
i was a blanket
Track Name: New Husband
hope that your new husband's a saint
never has to make up reasons why he had to come home late
and all your friends are fakes
they'll leave you behind no matter what and let you lay in wait
that won't be me today

no one woman, no one's woman

you always come back to me
it's no dream, no fantasy
you're some planet orbiting
while i have chosen to be free
some train going off the tracks
wasting years i'll never get back

am i just some thing that you missed
are you just someone who falls in love with everyone they kiss
include my friends in this
try to lure me in with everything that i have learned to resist
you fucking selfish bitch

no one woman, no one's woman

you always come back to me
it's no dream, no fantasy
you're some planet orbiting
while i have chosen to be free
some train going off the tracks
wasting years i'll never get back
Track Name: Sleep Together
evil deeds we feel no guilt
smiling faces, sheets get filled
straddle me and squeeze me tight
leave me here to rot
fleeting sense of wrong and right
replaced when all our sparks ignite
hold me close and kiss me soft
your stubble on my cheek

all my friends sleep together
won't be like this forever
god, i know
it probably will
all my friends sleep together
regardless of whether or not
they're fucking someone's life up
you're fucking up my

nothing wrong with new found lust
or what my parents think of us
change my clothes and cut my hair
do i need something new?
face these facts to make a change
nervousness and stomach aches
hope that i won't feel the same
are you ever coming back?

all my friends sleep together
won't be like this forever
god, i know
it probably will
all my friends sleep together
regardless of whether or not
they're fucking someone's life up
you're fucking up my
Track Name: Takes One
i know things that leave everybody wanting more
but an ounce of prevention is worth a gallon of the cure
and all i need's a nap, and i swear that i'll be fine
but i'm sinking deep in shit from my soles up to my spine
we go down with the ship cause we shot it full of holes
and you'll learn pretty soon that you have no control

i don't wanna see you anymore, don't tell me all we need is love to get us through this major fuck up. it takes one to know one, takes one to know one.

i was doing all i could just to fix myself
but you fucked another man while i was getting help
how should i be feeling when you're crying in your hands
and every single day, i swear i'm going mad.

i don't wanna see you anymore, don't tell me all we need is love to get us through this major fuck up. it takes one to know one, takes one to know one.
Track Name: Run Faster Scared
wouldn't give a god damn if everything was gold
i'd give all my possessions and everything i own
up to every single child just to let you know
that baby you're my world and i don't need another one

die for your family and make a stand
put a rifle into a child's hands
this is what it feels like to be a man
heard a big bang and the universe began

regardless of name or of noble birth
our riches and who we have married
just like the seeds that we sow in the earth
our true lives begin once we're buried
you say in your sleep that you've heard the voices
and in mine i've heard them too
they say "life has many choices, but death just has the two"
Track Name: New Wife
spent my youth destroying what i own
spend five days a week finding my way back home
to you and everything i've grown to love
even our friends who end up smoking their brains to dust
melt that ring down to liquid gold
flood the house til the walls all turn brown from mold
we caught a ride that day inside a hearse
and woke anew inside the ashes of what could be worse

thinking over situations so haunting
you don't deserve that angel joining your family
or anything that you've been given in this life
one more mistake and you'll come home to a new wife

when we began we were so alive
now we barely even have the strength to die
after knowing love and loss and fear
i don't even wanna see the road that takes us here
when every demon came to show her face
and give a bad name to everyone in my good grace
dropped from my pedestal, we'll make it out
what empty mastermind hears prayers that are full of doubt

thinking over situations so haunting
you don't deserve that angel joining your family
or anything that you've been given in this life
one more mistake and you'll come home to a new wife
Track Name: Sleep Alone
i leave my pride behind every night
he sings the melody of virgin life

truth, we breathe alone
sound, we sing alone
youth, we dream alone
doomed, we sleep alone

i asked god if seven days was all we took
he just smiled and replied "beginner's luck"

truth, we breathe alone
sound, we sing alone
youth, we dream alone
doomed, we sleep alone
Track Name: Fishhouse Rapture Blues
something for the pain, i was never the same again

the truth is i am scared to be living on my own
so i drink myself to sleep like my boss back at home
they say everything in moderation, but god i want it all.
