feeds for this album, this artist
Track Name: Insurgents
lady, I don’t want to follow
drills a needle up my spine
go and clean the glass and swallow
taking bullets for our valley wives

fosters can’t feed the pressure
hills are unfolding
yellow fortune teller
yielding tangents that the brail can’t hold in

I wish I could go back in time (for you)

maybe I don’t want to change it
love’s an open wound
just tolerate the mazes
we’re just pilgrams starved for rules

nothing’s predetermined
flies can change this world
but I’m still determined
time, can make us whole

I wish I could go back in time (for you)

accelerate our landing time
accelerate our love tonight

I wish I could go back in time
to where the pavement is kept alive
Track Name: Time
everything was feeling new
packages half removed
stethoscopes know the truth
the whispers are the proof

compassion is my disease
you’re hurting just like me
this love is our relief
like chestnuts among the trees


everybody says they don’t know love
waiting on the one to rip you off
Everybody says they don’t know love
It’s about time

you never said you were a priest
you’re living on your knees
confessions run too deep
with lies between the teeth

polish up the glass house
fingerprints from the south
can’t fake your way out
everyone’s watching now

everybody says they don’t know love
waiting on the one to rip you off
everybody says they don’t know love
it’s about time

running away
Track Name: Heaven or Farewell
crossed eyes
cameras sniping down at your feet

soft highs
don’t get lost in the opening scene

allies
in the hands of a stranger or priest

they choose the color schemes
so let’s blow off some

hanging on our hearts as we dance in the dark

inmates
where our jail is the closing bell

cheapskate
is this heaven or farewell?

collate
my name within your cell

you wear the look so well
one night within your…

hanging on our hearts as we dance in the dark

something in the night
can’t be right
let’s wait outside for the sunrise

something in the night
can’t be right
let’s take the train into the sky

just hanging on
Track Name: Half Love
White lies
You really cut me up like
A patient with a tell-tale heart

Josh said
You were someone like me
Unchained to play the part

Summer days all fade to one
The trips west, our setting sun
Stolen nights with codes to crack
I won’t rest, or change this paragraph

Time’s up
Let’s stop before we wake up
We’re never gonna go grow up
Don’t wanna be your half time lover
Half time lover

Clichés
Are all around us it seems
A missing heart will never start

Bouquets and human robots are teams
Too cold to feel that part

Everyday I’m a little bit stronger
Life’s a muscle, I’ll feed my hunger
A lost soul can’t change its path
Another ghost that’s lost in my draft

Time’s up
Let’s stop before we wake up
We’re never gonna go grow up
Don’t wanna be your half time lover
Half time lover

Lights out
No excuses for the
The surprise now
This was never meant to be
Don’t work it out
Don’t wanna be your better
Half love is never what it seems

It’s just the beauty of it all
Track Name: The Good in Goodbye
Suzy’s skating down the boulevard
Catch her eye on a bumper car
Wonder where she’s going, where she might have been

Met him once, we were 12 years old
Black glasses, a piercing in his nose
Mama swore that boy was no good for me

But I told her anyway
Turn back the clocks and take the bait
This is our mistake
Fold up our tongue and seal our fate

Little fate or maybe it was luck
Took a chance and chased her around the block
She was just a ghost inside my dream

Every year on an even day
I light a match and burn a rose he made
Just a part of blood inside the sea

But I told her anyway
Turn back the clocks and take the bait
This is our mistake
Fold up our tongue and seal our fate

You put the good in goodbye
(I never wanted you… to say goodbye)
Track Name: Chemical Burns
birthmarks are burned with time
earmarks are lost in greed
ballparks are built to tumble
with memories

'cause living upstairs outside your window
I finally found a little symbol
carving our sins
a misfit groveling

harmless hearts (just raise your skirt a little)
countless starts (echos of tainted love)
anxious wounds (perfection isn't free)
drowned in youth

love in a dark room
develop our past in photos
chemical burns and harmless hearts

classrooms where notes are passed
lunchrooms where drugs are free
costumes are made to cover the red eye thieves

sneaking out of class late in the morning
to find to find, a little trouble
amateur needs
we'll shoot among the weeds

harmless hearts (just raise your skirt a little)
countless starts (echos of tainted love)
anxious wounds (perfection isn't free)
drowned in youth

love in a dark room
develop our past in photos
chemical burns and harmless hearts
Track Name: Modern Living
Empty parking lots
Liberties are soft
Bodies on the stage
Minimum wage

Burn the platform shoes
Yesterday’s news
Find another way
Cheating the game

Stand up and watch the room keep spinning
Checkered face of modern living
Get out and put your hand on my ceiling
The trunks too small to call this home

What took you so long?
Perfections undone
Who said no? who said no?

Hooked on violens
And the salty gin
Slide the pill to snooze
Snort till you loose

Let the pillows drop
And the dollars stop
Walls are colder now
Wizards are proud

Lay down and feel your face fall under
Content to watch the young girls stutter
Hang and make the road get tighter
Your family knows your given name is real

What took you so long?
Perfections undone
Who said no? who said no?

It took a mutiny of words to narrow the choices
A mutiny of words to change your life

You know you really like it
Track Name: Jackie Kennedy
Judges say you win some and lose some
Teleprompters staring at the news clone
Pestilence is creeping up the east coast
Just choose your wave

Like a phoenix falling from the cross fire
Second chances, costing for the love sign
Looters always want something sweeter
Time it won’t exonerate

Your imperfections are perfect
Just cracks in the road
Your imperfections are perfect
Like diamonds in the snow
Your imperfections are perfect
We’re pedals in the falling snow

Now the futures drawing off the smooth blood
Like a teacher selling out of good drugs
Evolution was never enough

Your imperfections are perfect
Just cracks in the road
Your imperfections are perfect
Like diamonds in the snow
Your imperfections are perfect
We’re pedals in the falling snow

You and me under all the covers

I don’t wanna wake up
Track Name: Digital Girl
you're just a digital girl
with my keys in your socket
and I'm knocking

we're on a non-stop
a non-stop
8 bit lovers demise

saved a piece of you
in a rusted clock
life is so obtuse
only measured by the hair we cut

blonde fibers fade
bending circuits like a 4 leaf clover
love was our mistake
slaves to logic in a complex coda

you're just a digital girl
with my keys in your socket
and I'm knocking

we're on a non-stop
a non-stop
8 bit lovers demise

it takes mechanical skin to let me in
mechanical sins to let me out

technicolors bleed out
blue follows green
microchips spawn real doubt
pretty robots they don't need sleep

you're just a digital girl
with my keys in your socket
and I'm knocking

we're on a non-stop
a non-stop
8 bit lovers demise
Track Name: Zeros and Ones
Blurry faces caught in the cameras
Copper cords, the threads of the feathers
Do you know you deserve something better?
News isn’t news

Tripwires on basement stairs
The IRS is braiding your hair
Strong memories fall somewhere
Reboot the shoes

Target practice in our backyards
ICE scratching the sky above
Big brother can work out the bugs
And choose us too

Give up on love
Just zeros and ones
