[Calling All Skeletons]

Here it is again
Yet it stings like the first time
Seems like it never ends
Double nickels on your dime
I thought we were friends
I guess it just depends who you ask
These feelings tend to leave me
With a hole in my chest

Now the time has come
I just wish I could erase
All the time it’s gotten to your name
And your keep sakes
It’s only just begun it’s been fun
We were blind deaf and dumb
There’s a party in my closet
Calling all skeletons

Where did you go
As the lights went black
What’s become of me
I’ve come to love your disappearing act
Just one more pretty please

Now the time has come
I just wish I could erase
All the time it’s gotten to your name
And your keep sakes
It’s only just begun it’s been fun
We were fucked up and numb
There’s a killer on the corner
And he’s looking for love

Where did you go
As the lights went black
What’s become of me
I’ve come to love your disappearing act
Just one more pretty please

And to tell you the truth
I lost all faith on you
(you gotta stop sneaking up on me)
And these unspoken lies
(You gotta stop sneaking up on me)
That we wrote all these times (? )
They’re hiding just beyond your eyes!

[Help Me]

Here you’ll find me in between
Heaven and hell my dear where nothings what it seems
It’s just as well I fear I’m giving you the creeps
And a farewell kiss to go into the unknown

Saw you standing there
Outside the music hall, you come out for some air
A certain curtain call and everyone just stared
When you took the stage that night
Somethings not right

You’re up there, took the stairs to the stars all alone
You left all the lights burning but nobodies home
I believe they deceived your tuneful heart too long

And they sing (love)
Help me, help me won’t you?
Sing me, sing me one last song
Help me, help me, somebody help me
Save me from myself

Here I’ll find you in between
Heaven and hell again where nothings what it seems
It’s just as well my friend
I’m giving me the creeps
And a farewell to arms and legs and heads and heart

You’re up there, took the stairs to the stars all alone
You left all the lights burning but nobodies home
I believe they deceived your tuneful heart too long

And they sing (love)
Help me, help me won’t you?
Sing me, sing me one last song
Help me, help me, somebody help me
Save me from myself
Take me from this hell

And they sing
La la la la la la la la (four times)

You’re up there, took the stairs to the stars all alone
You left all the lights burning but nobodies home
I believe they deceived your tuneful heart too long

And they sing (love)
Help me, help me won’t you?
Sing me, sing me one last song
Help me, help me, somebody help me
Save me from myself

Help me, help me won’t you?
Sing me, sing me one last song
Help me, help me, somebody help me
La la la la la la la la
Save me from myself
Take me from this hell

[In Vein]

My point of reference makes me afraid to begin convincing,
But you might as well just change your name.
‘Cause I only recognize this shadow,
Kinda blackened superhero with nobody’s best interests in mind.

Now there’s blood in the water, that heart bleeds from this stone here,
And we turned into our cheap wine.
And I swallowed every drop, yes, I could feel my stomach rot,
And you were so supportive as I drank through the pain.

You recognize this shape, it’s the back of your hand. (Whoa-oh whoa-oh [x2])
You placed it on my face here again, and again, yeah. (Whoa-oh whoa-oh [x2])
And I don’t wanna be the one who takes this place in vein.

Dove off that east side platform, jack-knifed a bone dry floor.
One broken ankle save my name.
And this eraser burn, I dig in deep at every turn.
It keeps getting darker and the fear stays the same.

You recognize this shape, it’s the back of your hand. (Whoa-oh whoa-oh [x2])
You placed it on my face here again, and again, yeah. (Whoa-oh whoa-oh [x2])
And I don’t wanna be the one who takes this place,
don’t wanna be the one who takes,
I don’t wanna be the one who takes this place in vein.

(Whoa-oh whoa-oh, Whoa-oh whoa-oh oh [x2])

I don’t wanna take, I don’t wanna take this place, no.
I don’t want to take, I don’t wanna take this place, no.
No-oh, no-oh. I don’t wanna take this place, no.
No-oh, no-oh. I don’t wanna take this place, no.

You recognize this shape, it’s the back of your hand. (Whoa-oh whoa-oh [x2])
You placed it on my face here again, and again, yeah. (Whoa-oh whoa-oh [x2])
And I don’t wanna be the one who takes this place,
don’t wanna be the one who takes,
I don’t wanna be the one who takes this place in vein.

[Over And Out]

Over and out she said
from a hospital bed
for what its worth it doesn’t hurt don’t cry
over and out he said
with a forty-five to his head
the war has taken everything from me
its all i see so

run for cover as fast as you can
fighters and lovers and enemies of friends
pens and knives apologize
believing you tonight
leavin’ you tonight

Over and out, he sighed
it seems I’ve run out of time
please tell my wife i loved her more than life itself
over and out, she sang
as the telephone rang
there’s no pain no answering no more so

run for cover as fast as you can
fighters and lovers and enemies of friends
pens and knives apologize
for leaving you

run for cover and you’ll find a stand
take on the anguish make it disappear
hand grenades and napalm flames are leading you tonight
let this candle burn ’til you get home
never forget forget your face
never lose hope
tonight

run for cover as fast as you can
fighters and lovers and enemies of friends
pens and knives apologize
believing you

run for cover and you’ll find a stand
take on the anger make it disappear
knives a blaze will strongly send a name in you

[I Found Away]

Storming through the dark with a broken heart
All alone at it once again
Seeping in like a feeling
You haven’t felt since way back when
In the dead of that night
Like the summer of Sam
I got word of the promotion
You caused me a telegram
And got all worked up
We got all worked up

I found a way
Through the fear and through the flames
I’m diving in, don’t follow me
Stay right here, I’ll be back for you someday
I found a way
It’d be best if you just stayed
It’s not safe, don’t follow me
I found a way
I found a way

Frozen in the lights of a locomotive
Tied to the tracks again
You said you haven’t felt this comatose
Since you can’t remember when
Fly off the handle every time
We sleep straight off with it

I found a way
Through the fear and through the flames
I’m diving in, don’t follow me
Stay right here, I’ll be back for you someday
I found a way
It’d be best if you just stayed
It’s not safe, don’t follow me
I found a way
I found a way

Oh whoa
Oh whoa

From the top of my lungs
The truth shall be sung
Sharp and damning
Violently stabbing at secrecy
That look on your face
It’s more than I can take
It scaring the living hell shit out of me

I found a way
Through the fear and through the flames
I’m diving in, don’t follow me
Stay right here, I’ll be back for you someday
I found a way
It’d be best if you just stayed
It’s not safe, don’t follow me
I found a way
I found a way

I found a way
I found a way

[Do You Wanna Know]

So hello where are we today
Still fighting still running in place
And now the outline of this lake
Seems to be pointing me away
Honestly i’ve never lied more
To myself all over the floor
I threw my teeth i’ve shown you
Just how weak my knees can get

So don’t let go
My spine is slipping like a phone line
If I go out bury us all
Don’t close my door
Don’t leave me out with these mosquitoes
Trying to drink up all my wine

Do you wanna know what my love is
Oh do you wanna hear how my song goes
Do you wanna know what my love is
Don’t say no, don’t say no

And now it’s up to me to wait
I need you to reciprocate
My heart is ticking like a box
Sent to me by anonymous
And now i’m scared to open it
I’m always blowing up to bits
I’m always running out of lights
Running out of time

So don’t let go
My spine is slipping like a phone line
If I go out bury us all
Don’t close my door
Don’t leave me out with these mosquitoes
Trying to drink up all my wine

Do you wanna know what my love is
Oh do you wanna hear how my song goes
Do you wanna know what my love is
Don’t say no, don’t say no

Don’t let me go i’d fall apart
Don’t say you won’t follow my heart
I’d had this deep inside for far too long
(it can’t be wrong)
Only one life to give
I cross my heart and hope to live
With you my darling here forevermore

So do you wanna know what my love is
Oh do you wanna hear how my song goes
Do you wanna know what my love is
Don’t say no, don’t say no

Do you wanna know what my love is
Oh do you wanna hear how my song goes
Do you wanna know what my love is
Don’t say no, don’t say no

[Live Young, Die Fast]

its no big surprise
we turned out this way
its in our eyes
like shallow graves
but we are one with the larva and weeds
we dont discriminate at all for what its worth

so live young, die fast
no one will last
so sit back and relax, enjoy the crash
that fades into black and its gone
live young, die fast, die fast

what an easy life
an untimely death
this doesnt work at all for me
so save your breath
you took your time
and stashed it away
deep down inside of a cardboard box marked “rainy day”

so live young, die fast
no one, will last
so sit back and relax, enjoy the crash
that fades into black and its gone

nothing miracle in every breath that i breathe
wont let this miracle end in tragedy
a sense a miracle in all that i see
wont let this miracle slip away from me

live young, die fast
no one, will last
so sit back and relax, enjoy the crash
that fades into black and its gone

[Love Love Kiss Kiss]

Take a look you see I painted you a picture,
It’s black and white except the blood’s a little richer
Down in the corner I gave it my signature
And then I titled it “This one’s for the Winter”

Check it out, you see it’s just a big disaster
I dedicate it to the fact that it’s so hard for you to dream,
A million heartbeats around you make it hard to sleep
Doesn’t help you’re freezing in your bed your blankets aren’t enough
All you want is some one there, all you say is so

Love, Love, Kiss, Kiss, blah blah blah.
You’re making me sick, I wish you’d just stop showing off
For the rest of us that no one wants to love
It’s hard enough trying to drink another Winter all alone
Love, Love, Kiss, Kiss, blah blah blah.

Well do you find you like to fall in love with people that you’re never gonna meet?
It’s easier than breaking up and crying in the street
Do you curse the happy couple? Do you cringe at wedding bells?
Do you drink up all the punch while you wish ‘em all to

Love, Love, Kiss, Kiss, blah blah blah.
You’re making me sick, I wish you’d just stop showing off
For the rest of us that no one wants to love
It’s hard enough trying to drink another Winter all alone
Love, Love, Kiss, Kiss, blah blah blah.

You can’t escape this fatal case of melancholia
It’s in your face, in every place you go it’s stalking you
And there are days when we all say we feel we just can’t go on
But you’ve felt this way all along

Love, Love, Kiss, Kiss, blah blah blah.
You’re making me sick, I wish you’d just stop showing off
For the rest of us that no one wants to love
It’s hard enough trying to drink another Winter all alone
Love, Love, Kiss, Kiss, blah blah blah.

[Lost & Rendered]

Found out the hard way that you were lost
And rendered all alone in the dark forest of your thoughts
Forever following a trail or field that seems to lead to more dead ends
And mysteries I’m losing hope of ever solving

Can anybody hear me? Is anyone out there?
I’ve fallen and I’m broken down, I’m dying over here
If anybody’s listening, I hope you hear my cries
My will to live is wearing thin, I’m running out of time

Sounding the alarms inside of me
Hoping like hell the sound cuts through the water and the broken trees
And reaches you before the creatures of the night
Descend on me, no help in sight
Won’t be long before we lose daylight

Take a deep breath
Could be the cure, could be our last
Can’t know for sure
Is it the hate they tried to show?
Is it the love that you’ll never know?
I guess we’ll never know

Can anybody hear me? Is anyone out there?
I’ve fallen and I’m broken down, I’m dying over here
If anybody’s listening, I hope you hear my cries
My will to live is wearing thin, I’m running out of time

Can anybody hear me?
Can anybody hear me?
Can anybody hear me?
Can anybody hear me?

[Ruin It]

I’ve waited a long time for this life
Just to ruin it, so please don’t ruin this for me
Yes to understand this lie
Hell I crossed those t’s
I scratched out all these eyes, myself last night
What I promise not to find

So this is what I’m looking like these days
I’m all grown up, so full of hate
But I don’t wanna let go of my age
Cause it’s the salt, that brings the taste

So where am I to decide that I’m not right?
Cause I might break and I might bend
Your heart strings out of tune again
And I might try to apologize
One a good day
On my best day
If you stick around

Did I stay inside to sterilize this knife?
Am I being to careful?
Does this seem right?
Did I open up the shades to expose this sunny rays?
To show what burned this sight

Take a close look
Hold me right up to the light
Cause I might break and I might bend
Your heart strings out of tune again
And I might try to apologize
One a good day
On my best day
If you stick around

I’ve waited for so long
(I’ve waited for so long)
Spread me out, rake me in
This scorched and rocky field
Will camouflage my skin

And I might break and I might bend
Your heart strings out of tune again
And I might try to apologize
One a good day

On my best day
If you stick around [2x]

[Into The Night]

We’ll never know which way this road is gonna turn
and can’t be sure how quick your wick is gonna burn
so sing to me your darkest secrets
time to leave behind your regrets
before we get lost in a blink of an eye

This carrion has been forgotten
left for dead in the sun rotting
the answers lie here in this tragedy
it ends when you and me
we’re dragged from the light
into the night…

We have been warned which way this storm is gonna blow
But where the rip tide takes us to we’ll never know
now you’re screaming out for Jesus
send for anyone, please save us
Before we get lost in the blink of an eye

This carrion has been forgotten
left for dead in the sun rotting,
the answers lie here in this tragedy,
it ends with you and me,
we’re dragged from the light,
into the night…

So sing to me your darkest secrets
Time to leave behind your regrets
Before we get lost in the blink of an eye

This carrion has been forgotten
left for dead in the sun rotting,
the answer lies here in the mystery,
it starts with you and me
when we’re dragged from the light
into the night…

Into the night…
(Whoas)
Into the night…
(Whoas)
Into the night…
