Track Name: Glass Eyes
morning hits and it all falls apart
and I can see my words plummet from my lips
a constant Freudian slip
my heart's in the wrong place but everything I say
is oh so bitterly true in a way

just give me a reason to look left and look right
or just give me a reason not to step into the blight
or just give me a second where I don't stare through glass eyes
or just long for accidents that total up with our demise

and the signs draw my eyes back to you
like they ever diverted
macabre setting, the dead ends we're heading
so you were always so much better off forgetting

trace your shadow along the walls of the fake collection
I can't see you through windshields or cinema reflections
blood splattered lovers in the red of your complexion
your smile tears through my veins like a lethal injection

you can burn your throat till it freezes your bones
but I don't think I've ever felt more alone
than when you walked past me like I didn't exist
like I was just another face on an erstwhile list

I don't wanna know if it's set in stone
I don't wanna know if it'll take it's toll
I don't wanna know what I've already said
you're all it takes to tear me to shreds

it repeats our tautology
holds blades to our longevity
waters we stopped treading, spent sunrise regretting
so you were always so much better off forgetting

I don't need you.
I don't need the truth.
I just wanna believe in something bigger than us.
Track Name: Throw Your Voice
take your time with me
you know I'm trying to do better
but you lay in the grass and look up at the stars
and hope everything won't turn out so tragically
I'm too sober and aware it's over
like Sid and Nancy you're stabbing me closer
I'm nailing you to me like the shadow of a boy
Who doesn't wanna grow older anymore

lose your mind on me
did you expect any better?
was it roses all the way as I was carried off screaming
"I only ever miss you every second that I'm breathing"?
this is all I have and this is all I'm gonna get
drinking two shots of happy and ten shots of regret
and kissing you in the hall
up against the wall
I guess we're all just better off dead.

waste your life on me
I know that you can do better
but if the skin replenishes every twenty eight days
then every trace of you has already left my body
and I don't feel like James Dean
and you look way too much like Audrey
maybe we're like communism:
better off in theory.

throw your voice straight into mine.
