LYRICS: over the edge, it changes me, i see stars and i see me, let's do it again, let's get lost, blind leads blind, you follow i lead, i'm just pretend, but i write the book, you're not real to me cause all i see is me, let's do it again, let's get lost, blind leads blind, you follow i lead.
Medicine 08:41
LYRICS: why must I suffer through this broken and bleeding heart that helps you until it comes back to haunt me. why are you looking at me like i got all the answers. when your skin sores got maggots, i'm not the one to blame. i can't see clear enough to make any incissions, but i need this transplant from my defective heart. i can't help you find yourself, or help you find your way, i need my own bandages to keep me from falling apart. i'm not your padded wall, i'm not your plaster cast, i'm not your silver spoon, i'm not your smokey tube. i'm not your medicine cause i'm too sick myself.
Beautiful 12:54
LYRICS: all the little things must be beautiful, but i've gone blind. if love tastes sweet it must be beautiful, but i've been starved. the moon feels blue, it must be beautiful with a heavy heart. it must be beautiful, it must be beautiful.
