Track Name: I Know (live)
LYRICS: when i was little i got beat up and picked on all the time, but there were never ever marks to prove the pain, just a scared heart and just a scared ego, you got to look deep to see this pain. i know, im not... i'm not stupid. i have this piece that's been missing all my life, it's a piece in the shape of a heart and it leaves this black hole for everyone one to see thru, but they still don't see me. i know, blah blah blah... iknowwhatloveis. i know somethings but i can't seem to figure out the rest, so i'll just sit, stare into space, growing older, growing dumber, losing purpose and going numb. i'm losing purpose and going numb. i know you, but you know nothing.
Track Name: These Are My Friend (live)
LYRICS: just remember to keep breathing. as you cut away at your chest i realize there's no more love left in this world. as you self destruct i coward, we're all fucked up and gone sour, i can't stand you anymore so i can't stay. i can see your problems but i don't see mine and when you ask me how life's been up till now i just start to, cry: it feels worthless and i'm empty, a stranger among my family, i can't fix it but it don't seem right to just give up. my missing peices are all scattered and your fringes all seem tattered, we're missing buttons and our stitching has come loose. i just blanked out, you just blacked out, this is much too much to handle, i got amnesia, or maybe i'm just dumb. these are my friends.
Track Name: Search For (live)
LYRICS: it's been said, if you search you'll be searching all your life. if that's the case, which seems feasible, maybe I should just stop, but I got to keep on searching although it may last all my life, cause i gotta know what this is crawling underneigth my skin. search for love, search for meaning, search for identity and a place to die. this might not be much at all but it's all i got and it helps me to know what to do with myself. i think the point was to grow up, and when i grew up have a purpose, and with that purpose be fulfilled, but i think i've had my fill. search for love, search for meaning, search for identity, and a place to... lay down and die.
Track Name: Knives (live)
LYRICS: my lonliness begs please come back to me, my hurt screams just get the fuck away. i don't want to hear that you're hurting too cause you couldn't hurt enough to satisfy me. got to the point i don't see the point, so i hate myself, but do it just for me. i don't know what this is but i see it's sick and so far away cause of blame and shame. got a knife in my gut, but there's another in my back, what happen to me, what happen to me. don't know what to say or what to do, i lost my way, may we do this again. got to the point, don't see the point, so hate yourself, but do it just for me, me, me. got a knife in my gut and there's another in my back. what happen to me, what happen to me. my lonliness begs please come back to me, my hurt screams just get the fuck away. i don't want to hear that you're hurting too cause you couldn't hurt enough to satisfy me.
Track Name: Jesus Don't Want Me For A Sunbeam (live)
LYRICS: jesus don't want me for a sunbeam...
Track Name: Sometimes I Dream Of Disappearing (live)
LYRICS: in dreams, i'm a wanted man but they won't look me in the eye. at home they barely cared if i disappeared. now i just fade away as i bleed down the drain, took way too many pills... now i lay me down to sleep. sometimes i dream of disappearing, sometimes i dream of going away to unfimilar destinations, unknow wonders, and unknown love. wake up.
Track Name: It All Seems To Fade (live)
LYRICS: it's won. it's one of those times again. in the place were all the things fade, in this place it all seems to fade. so let it fade, let it fall, let it change and i'll start again, i have to fail, i have to crawl if i'm going to make it on my own. this time in the circles of the world, in the end it all seems to fade, in this place it all seems to fade. once again with a feeling that cuts and bends, makes what it wants to make of me. this in me it all seems to fade. so let it fade, let it fall, let it change and i'll start again, i have to fail, i have to crawl if i'm going to make it on my own.
Track Name: In Heaven (live)
LYRICS: in heaven everything is fine. in heaven everything is fine. in heaven everything is fine. you got your good thing and I got mine. in heaven everything is fine. in heaven everything is fine. in heaven everything is fine. you got your good thing and i got mine, mine, mine...
