Track Name: I'm On Fire
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…
Track Name: The Healing Kiss of a Blowtorch
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.
Track Name: I Used to Dream of Astronauts
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.
Track Name: Jesus Come
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
Track Name: Red Handed
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.
