The Package Lyrics

Clever got me this far then tricky got me in
Eye on what I’m after, I don’t need another friend
Smile and drop the cliche ‘Till you think I’m listening
I take just what I came for then I’m out the door again

Peripheral on the package, don’t care to settle in
Time to feed the monster, I don’t need another friend
Comfort is a mystery crawling out of my own skin
Just give me what I came for then I’m out the door again

Lie to get what I came for
Lie to get just what I need
Lie to get what I crave
Lie and smile to get what’s mine

Eye on what I’m after, I don’t need another friend
Nod and watch your lips move if you need me to pretend
Because clever got me this far then tricky got me in
I’ll take just what I came for then I’m out the door again

Lie to get what I came for
Lie to get what I need now
Lie to get what I’m craving
Lie to smile to get what’s mine

Give this to me
Mine, mine, mine
Take what’s mine
Mine, mine, mine
Take what’s mine
Mine, mine, mine

Lie to get what I came for
Lie to get what I need
Lie to get what I crave
Lie to smile to get what’s mine

Give this to me
Take what’s mine
Mine, mine, mine
Take what’s mine
Give this to me

Take what’s mine
Take what’s mine
Mine
Take what’s mine
Take what’s mine
Take what’s mine
This is mine, mine, mine

Weak and Powerless Lyrics

Tilling my own grave to keep me level
Jam another dragon down the hole
Digging to the rhythm and the echo of a solitary siren
one that pushes me along, and leaves me so

Desperate and ravenous
so weak and powerless over you

Someone feed the monkey while I dig in search of China
White as Dracula as I approach the bottom

Desperate and ravenous
so weak and powerless over you

Little angel, go away
Come again some other day
The Devil has my ear today
I’ll never hear a word you say
He promised I would find a little solace and some peace of mind
Whatever, just as long as I don’t feel so

Desperate and ravenous
So weak and powerless

Desperate and ravenous
So weak and powerless
over you…

The Noose Lyrics
So glad to see you well
Overcome and completely silent now
With heaven’s help
You cast your demons out

And not to pull your halo down
Around your neck and tug you off your cloud
But I’m more than just a little curious
How you’re planning to go about
Making your amends to the dead
To the dead

Recall the deeds as if
They’re all someone else’s
Atrocious stories
Now you stand reborn before us all
So glad to see you well

And not to pull your halo down
Around your neck and tug you to the ground
But I’m more than just a little curious
How you’re planning to go about
Making your amends to the dead
To the dead

With your halo slipping down
Your halo slipping
Your halo slipping down
(more than just a little curious)
Your halo slipping down
(how you’re planning to go about making your)
Your halo slipping down [repeated]

Your halo slipping down to choke you now

Blue Lyrics
I didn’t want to know
I just didn’t want to know
Best to keep things in the shallow end
Cause I never quite learned how to swim

I just didn’t want to know
Didn’t want, didn’t want,
Didn’t want, didn’t want

Close my eyes just to look at you
Taken by the seamless vision
I close my eyes,
Ignore the smoke,
Ignore the smoke,
Ignore the smoke

Call it aftermath, she’s turning blue
Such a lovely color for you
Call it aftermath, she’s turning blue
While I just sit and stare at you

Because I don’t want to know
I didn’t want to know
I just didn’t want to know
I just didn’t want

Mistook the nods for an approval
Just ignore the smoke and smile

Call it aftermath, she’s turning blue
Such a lovely color for you
Call it aftermath, she’s turning blue
Such a perfect color for your eyes
Call it aftermath, she’s turning blue
Such a lovely color for you
Call it aftermath, she’s turning blue
While I just sit and stare at you

Didn’t want to know

Vanishing Lyrics

Disappear
Disappear
Higher
Higher
Into the air
Slowly disappear
No, no longer here

Disappear
Disappear
Thinner, thinner
Into the air
Never really here
What that never

Like a thought brushing up against a…sigh (whispered)

Floating away
Floating away (repeated)
Vanishing like a sigh and slowly
Disappear
Disappear
Vanish, vanish into the air
Slowly disappear
Never really here

Floating away
Floating away (repeated)

A Stranger Lyrics
Cast the calming apple
Up and over satellites
To draw out the timid wild one
To convince you it’s alright

And I listen for the whisper
Of your sweet insanity
while I formulate denials
Of your affect on me

You’re a stranger
So what do I care
You vanish today
Not the first time I hear
Or the last

What am I to do with all this silence

Shy away, shy away phantom
Run away, terrified child
Won’t you move away from the tornado
I’m better off without you, tearing my will down

The Outsider Lyrics

Help me if you can
It’s just that this, this is not the way I’m wired
So could you please,
Help me understand why
You’ve given in to all these
Reckless dark desires

You’re lying to yourself again
Suicidal imbecile
Think about it, put it on the faultline
What’ll it take to get it through to you precious
Over this. Why do you wanna throw it away like this
Such a mess. I don’t want to watch you.

Disconnect and self destruct one bullet at a time
What’s your rush now, everyone will have his day to die

Medicated, drama queen, picture perfect, numb belligerence
Narcissistic, drama queen, craving fame and all its decadence

Lying through your teeth again
Suicidal imbecile
Think about it, put it on the fautline
What’ll it take to get it through to you precious
Go with this, why do you wanna throw it away like this
Such a mess, I don’t wanna watch you…

Disconnect and self destruct one bullet at a time
What’s your rush now, everyone will have his day to die

They were right about you
They were right about you

Lying to my face again
Suicidal imbecile
Think about it put it on the fautline
What’ll it take to get it through to you precious
Over this, why do you wanna throw it away like this
Such a mess, over this, over this

Disconnect and self destruct, one bullet at a time
What’s your hurry, everyone will have his day to die
If you choose to pull the trigger, should your drama prove sincere,
Do it somewhere far away from here

Crimes Lyrics
One…two…three
Four…five…six
Seven…eight…nine
Nine…nine…nine
Ten…ten…ten…ten
The Nurse Who Loved Me Lyrics

Say hello to the rug’s topography
It holds quite a lot of interest with your face down on it
Say hello to the shrinking in your head
You can’t see it but you know its there so don’t neglect it

I’m taking her home with me all dressed in white
She’s got everything I need pharmacy keys
She’s falling hard for me I can see it in her eyes
She acts just like a nurse with all the other guys

Say hello to all the apples on the ground
They were once in your eyes but you sneezed them out while sleeping
Say hello to everything you’ve left behind
It’s even more a part of your life now that you can’t touch it

I’m taking her home with me all dressed in white
She’s got everything I need some pills in a little cup
She’s falling hard for me I can see it in her eyes
She acts just like a nurse with all the other guys

She’s got everything I need pharmacy keys
She acts just like a nurse with all the other guys

Say hello to the rugs topography…

Pet Lyrics

Don’t fret precious I’m here, step away from the window
And Go back to sleep

Lay your head down child
I won’t let the boogeyman come
Counting bodies like sheep
To the rhythm of the war drums
Pay no mind to the rabble
Pay no mind to the rabble
Head down, go to sleep
To the rhythm of the war drums

Pay no mind what other voices say
They don’t care about you, like I do, like I do
Safe from pain and truth and choice and other poisoned devils,
See, they don’t give a fuck about you, like I do.

Just stay with me, safe and ignorant,
Go back to sleep
Go back to sleep

Lay your head down child
I won’t let the boogeyman come
Counting bodies like sheep
To the rhythm of the war drums
Pay no mind to the rattle
Pay no mind to the rattle
Head down, go to sleep to the rhythm of the war drums

I’ll be the one to protect you from
Your enemies and all your demons
I’ll be the one to protect you from
A will to survive and a voice of reason
I’ll be the one to protect you from
Your enemies and your choices son
They’re one and the same
I must isolate you
Isolate and save you from yourself

Swayin’ to the rhythm of the new world order and
Counting bodies like sheep to the rhythm of the war drums
The boogeymen are coming
The boogeymen are coming
Keep your head down, go to sleep, to the rhythm of the war drums

Stay with me
Safe and ignorant
Just stay with me
Hold you and protect you from the other ones
The evil ones
Don’t love you son,
Go back to sleep

Lullaby Lyrics
Go back to sleep…
Go back to sleep (whispered)…
Gravity Lyrics

Lost again, broken and weary,
Unable to find my way,
Tail in hand, dizzy and clearly unable to
just let this go

I am surrendering to gravity and the unknown,
Catch me, heal me, lift me back up to the sun,
I choose to live

I fell again, like a baby unable to stand on my own,
Tail in hand, dizzy and clearly unable to
just let this go

High and surrendering to gravity and the unknown,
Catch me, heal me, lift me back up to the sun,
(I choose to live 3x)

Catch me, heal me, lift me back up to the sun,
Help me survive the bottom

Calm these hands before they
Snare another pill
And drive another nail
Down another needy hole
Please release me

I am surrendering to the gravity and the unknown,
Catch me, heal me, lift me back up to the sun,
I choose to live,
I choose to live
