Hard 04:21
I can't fit in the gapping hole of what you want in your control, and I'm not sure if I see anything coming out of this or that. I've been so low and living underground now everything seems so far gone. I've been solo and living underground now everything seems too far gone. This is so hard, it's been so hard, I just need to get away... This is so hard, it's been so hard, I just want to fade away.
2.
Anchor 12:59
I have lost my anchor, so we have to get the hell out of here. Got no idea of where to go, just don't wanna get stuck here. Oh this ship is breaking down, and the death threats have all been called in. So spend what's left on drugs cause it's better off than being dead like you. It's been years since I saw her, but I still think of every night. Every song and all those dead dreams leaves me with nothing else to sing. We can always start with nothing, cause that's all that's left for us. So take three steps back and then take off, until we crash and burn at sea.

Trunk 06:03
Where I'm going, I don't care. These tire tracks won't lead home. My teeth are broke, my bones bruised. It feels too late for me and you. Hold my breath til I'm blue. I don't know what else to do. I'm dying cause I'm out of air. Need breather holes and hope to care. Locked alone in this room. Just a stranger to myself. Tire wrench, jack, and spare. Hibernating. Breathing fumes.
4.
Are you sleeping, right behind me? Or are you ready? Load up for the ride. Put your red scarf on and let's go killing cats in dreams. Cuddle up for warmth while we are hitchhiking to New Orleans. Everybody watch your step, just get back and turn around. Everybody watch your step, get back, turn around. Could you just wake up and take another breath again? Could you wake up? Cause, I don't want to bury a friend. I don't want to bury a friend.
5.
Bleeder 08:00
I don't need your apologies cause I would rather just forget you. My head's full of shit so I stop listening, and now I forgot how to say anything. Did these words lose all their meaning? Or did I go numb just to feel something? Like I been the butt of every bad joke, although I've yet to get to the punchline. I may be a bleeder cause I'm bone dry. Fill the IV feeder so I don't die. I may be a bleeder cause I'm bone dry. I got nothing left to prove now, I lie. Hope bleeds out from cuts and wounds, and every little crack in my heart. Got bloody noses, blackeyes, bruises... and now I'm feeling dizzy-er. I may be a bleeder cause I'm bone dry. Fill the IV feeder so I don't die. I may be a bleeder cause I'm bone dry. I got nothing left to prove now, I live.

From this parking spot an empty parking lot feels just like my heart, feels just like my heart. The moon it shines so bright with that skeletal smile, but I'm so dark and cold in this dead of night. I need a sweeper truck to make it's way through me, cause I'm oil spotted and I still see her trash float by. From this parking spot an empty parking lot feels just like my heart, feels just like my heart. The missing letters from that ole florescent sign, not spelling L-O-V-E down down on me. From this parking spot an empty parking lot feels just like my heart, it feels just like my heart.
