I'm On Fire 03:08
I can never get comfortable, awake or sleeping I walk around in a daze and I'm still dreaming Everything is just a buzz The stars are falling And I'm on fire I don't have time to hold your hand Please don't ask me how I am I'm doing fine, unless otherwise You're always looking for the white in my eyes I know you think I'm just terrible My lip's still bleeding. The silence stings and I bit my tongue No one's speaking And all around, an atomic cloud You are ground zero. But I'm the one on fire…

Let's start over Let's just pretend The fire never took hold The window never opened And nothing good ever fades You and I aren't bored Love is blind but never rests God is not a sword Today, you can never anticipate the healing kiss of a blowtorch Hanging by one wrist, tied to the railing of your neighbor's porch. Let's sleep over Let's lie on the floor Flashlights in the black and white Going through your sister's drawers Today, you can never anticipate the healing kiss of a blowtorch Hanging by one wrist, tied to the railing of your neighbor's porch. Such strange kids, living in trees.

Turn off the radio Feel those rivers blue and red racing through your veins Just listen to their melody. Deeper than the dying sea Like a steady, very gentle rain. Feel it coming down. I used to dream of astronauts and zero gravity When I finally came awake I noticed I was bleeding I traded my want of weightlessness for breaking and entering. Just looking for all those pieces I lost when I was thirteen. Just turn off that television Listen to the air around you buzzing in that silence. Open up all your windows Let the outside in Like an animal once caged but now running free again. I used to dream of astronauts and zero gravity When I finally came awake I noticed I was bleeding I traded my want of weightlessness for beer and pornography Just looking for all those pieces I lost when I was thirteen. I'm sorry if I repeat myself and all my apologies It simply seems I do it better than most anything. I used to dream of astronauts and zero gravity When I finally came awake I noticed I was bleeding I traded my want of weightlessness for self-righteous piety. Just looking for all those pieces I lost when I was thirteen.

Jesus Come 02:52
She said: "This morning I barely made it out of bed It's all at arms length, I've got no strength To raise my head I feel that gravity press Like a weight it's crushing my chest And I hate Jesus come, cuz we're fucking up We're falling out, the signal's breaking up He said, I write down all my thoughts Just to get them out of my head My thoughts are swimming with monsters hidden Under my bed I can't cry, instead I'll steal a watch I can't die for trying to get caught I'm just waiting Jesus come, cuz we're fucking up We're falling out, the signal's breaking up

Red Handed 03:57
Thanks to you, there's no purgatory And when I'm running late, you don't ask, you don't debate. Thanks to you, romantics aren't hopeless Scientists aren't mad to prove formulas invisible I may be red handled I won't let you down You need a guarantee. I promise you, this is the last time No one moves, no one gets hurt I promise you, a second chance The life we deserve with money left to burn I may be red handled I won't let you down You need a guarantee. I don't know how to tell you how to stop. You said stop. Stop, don't make me choose. Somethings are better left unsaid, she said. You need an answer. And I need an answer.
