Track Name: Bells On
There's a shade across the summer
Anger burns in the dark
Singing into the fire
Getting off on the smoke

I can see what they're saying
Like I see the disease
Even though I know I can't escape yet
I'm always looking for the keys

Me and my infected heart are going to hell
Me and my anarchic charms are going to hell
All bloody and bells
I can't sleep and I won't eat
you won't get too close
You see what you wanna see
Me and my anarchic charms are going to hell
All bloody with bells on

Cold blooded in the winter
Graying out in the sun
I'm a little more frozen
I'm a little less home

Then it hits like the fever
It turns and it blames
Fight it off and the rats still feed
Watch 'em scatter shot as the crowds scream

And my infectious heart
Is going to hell
Me and my anarchic charms
Are going to hell all bloody and bells
I'm no saint and I'm no thief
And if you watch long enough
You'll see what you wanna see
Me and my anarchic charms are going to hell
all bloody with bells on

You'd delete the human in me

They're watching you
You're watching me
The ash will fall and
You'll remember me
You think the world shouldn't be like this
Well, baby, step right up or get used to it

We're alone and it's silent
Lose the cards up your sleeves
Time to play it or call it or fight it
Or to get up and leave

1234 kick it out the back door
You don't own me
I can feel it under my skin
1234 never ever anymore
You don't see me
Never been so ugly before
1234 This is not a cold war
I can feel it
The sun is gonna shine in
5432 was it fuckin good for you?
So I'm screaming
All I ask is that you let me ...
Track Name: Absence Fit
[there's no one ever there]
Track Name: Fever Dream
On the side of the road with saint frank and saint joe
And one says to the other this guys gotta go and
The second one says oh honey you're sweet
But I'll love you and I'll leave you in a busted ass heap
So they're talking their trash and the radio's on
And we're singing along cause the thrill is gone
Dancing in the golden years crying to blue
But running away is all I wanna do

There's rocks in the road
They're starting to grow
And I'm just gonna get out and push my little heart out and I don't care if it makes the mountain fall apart

Full stop on the side of the road
there in my ditch with old frank and old joe
someone call the wrecker cause I'm shot to hell
no thanks to the saints, their salvation was an upsell
I've got a brilliant plan
it's gonna get me back to
where I wanna be and what I wanna feel
running my way around the bottom of the hills
cause I just wanna go back home
I don't need anymore
of old men complaining and kisses in the rain
in for everything that goes along with taking the long way

There's rocks in the road
And grass in my coat
And I'm one breath away from disbelieving all the little things that I never ever needed

All I want is a place to sleep
Track Name: Be Careful, You're Bleeding
Here are my demons:

I saw myself bleeding in
Some blown out poet's notes
Nothing he's saying's
Inside what he's doing
The best he can do is ex post
At most

One time a liar
he told me he loved me
And ran to the back of the line
Now the rails are running out
And the pills weigh my head down so
Pull over
I'm jumping this ride

Why was I the mirror you break
To throw yourself into the blades
An animal's ending
We all live to die
Why sharpen the shards on your eyes?

I stayed so quiet
The water was rising
Sirens were crying
The deed was done

The weapons were dull and dumb
and blood smells like rust
But it was never enough
It was never enough
So I learned how
to put my head down
And keep my head down
Get your head down

Looked in your mirror and
Saw myself bleeding
And admiring their work on me
there were my demons
Too old and too vain to pay any attention
Old stupid beasts who get off on the burden

Now all the cars are gone
Crashed where they belong
Maybe one day you'll feel quiet
I hope the devil stays behind you
But here's where I turn home
One day you'll fall silent

Have fun with your demons,
Be careful, you're bleeding.
Track Name: Safe.
Tonight you'll feel safe
It's humming in the air around you
with love and fate
The day is far away
You will be safe
It's here, just look around you
No more nights awake
The sun is down
The dark is watching out for you
And you'll feel safe
Close your eyes and wait
Sleep will come embrace you
Dreams will wash the day away
And you'll always wake up in the same place
Light is all around you
The night will keep away
The moon is new
The stars are looking down on you
And you'll feel safe
Tonight you feel afraid
the writing's on the walls around you
of love and hate and all the little things
That keep you awake
But home is where you close your eyes
Lay your head down
Where you can keep the cold out
The stars are falling down for you
You'll close your eyes
Warm and safe

I HOPE YOU FEEL SAFE
WHEN WHAT'S REAL WEIGHS UPON YOU
I HOPE IT ALL MAKES SENSE IN SOME WAY
I HOPE YOU HANG YOUR HEAD IN SHAME ONE DAY
BUT AT LEAST YOU'LL BE SAFE
AND IF YOU RUN TOO FAR AWAY
I HOPE THE DISTANCE IS WORTH THE WAIT
GOD DAMN ME IF I DON'T PRAY
IN MY OWN WAY, THAT YOU ARE
SAFE
