Track #1 “Eleven” –  4.27 

Own alone you find yourself
Another road with no way out
Laying there, resting now
You’re an overload to every sin
Waiting for the train to hit
You think about the pain fill
But now that it’s all over
They say you may as well forget
‘Cause I’m down on you, down on you, down on you
And you’re down on me, tied up, again I try to pull
You’re down on, you’re down on you
There’s not much left to say
‘Cause you’re tired, and I’m tired
We’re living like it is
Waiting You never think
Taking me out
Never been, you’ve never been
Anything you’ve ever did
Uphill in time where it might have left you
Well there you stand and there you fall
For you’re the only one who knows
The only one who shows
You’re a wild man, and a wild man and
Nothing’s gonna come through this web
Nothing’s gonna act out the same
Taking it out loud
Taking you won’t fail me now
Waiting you won’t fail me now
Leaving it out loud
You’re there on the train and
The tired here, the hungry there
But we’re the only ones who know who can
‘Cause I need it, you needed me
There’s a chance, falls in between
Leaving it, the only mistake
Waiting, feeling Waiting, you’re hoping it’s right
Maybe you might get it right
Taking it out loud Your damn mind is playing in
And there you stand and there you fall
You’re the only one who knows I’m down on you, you’re down on me
There’s nothing else to say I won’t waste my time going over this I need to know
‘Cause I’m tired of the pain you pull And every time you know
‘Cause I’m down on you and you’re down on me
There’s nothing else to say If you want me now you might as well forget me anyway
‘Cause I’m down on you, down on me, down
‘Cause I’m down, and I’m gonna kill you

 Track #2 “Cut My Skin, It Makes Me Human” – 2:19 

Cut my skin, it makes me human
Scorn your mind just feel the pain
‘Cause it’s what makes us human
It keeps us all the same
You lose your head on your chosen trip
The sight of your blood will lose your spit
And a broken heart will turn to sin but when the wound is open we’re all the same
Cut my skin, it makes me human
Scorn your mind just feel the pain
When you’re lookin’ at pain you’re lookin’ at truth
Nothin’ like pain to make us all the same
I see you each day get up nine-to-five you rush in a game of lies for need
But you never seem to recognize
You’re no better or worse than me
I dare you once just to make it hurt
How many times can you race around with the world running faster faster then…
I never expect to catch up
Cut my skin, it makes me human
Scorn your mind just feel the pain
When you’re lookin’ at pain you’re lookin’ at truth
Nothin’ like pain to make us all the same
Ahh yeah cut my skin, it makes me human
Scorn your mind just feel the pain ’cause it’s what makes us human
It keeps us all the same
You lose your head on your chosen trip
The sight of your blood will lose your spit
And a broken heart will turn to sin but when the wound is open you’re all the fuckin’ same
Cut my skin it makes me human
Scorn your mind well just feel the blow
Cause when you’re lookin at pain you’re lookin at truth
Nothin’ like pain to keep us all the same
Cut my skin, it makes me human
Scorn your mind just feel the pain ’cause it’s what makes us human
It keeps us all the same

Track #6 “It All Dies Anyway” – 4:10 

Once, once is really something
Twice it’s just a tease for a little more
One more time
I’ve gotta ask you come over here cause I got something I’d like to say
Once, once is real easy then
Twice, your just begging for a little more
One more time I’ve gotta ask you, come over here ’cause I’ve got something I’ve gotta say
It may seem easy for you to penetrate what you intend to deny, but when it comes back around
Is death the only way to get attention?
Once, once is real early but twice came back and it got a little rough,
And there I stand in the middle, and I was by myself like before,
Yeah once, once is real conniving, it’s easy now, When your conniving with me.
You step in my way, well now I have a little more to say.
It may seem easy for you to recognize What you intend to ignore, but when it cuts back round,
Well death is a sick way for attention
I think there’s a little more to be said.
They cut the cord, it cuts everything that’s living in me,
Well it all dies anyway
I thought that that might disappear
But you penetrate the will to deny and I’m standing in the dark all over again,
Oh lie on me, that’s all I want is you to lie on me, Why did I see the birds an the sidewalk today,
Split open inside and why do I hear the birds when they’re Squawking over my head, don’t let me down
Don’t come down on me,
‘Cause I just want to know, I need just a little more time to explain myself.
Once, once is real easy, then twice, Just ??? for a little more.
One more time I’ve gotta ask you, Come over here, sit down, I’ve got somethin’
That’s just begging to get out Once, once is real conniving,
And twice, you’re just begging for a little more One more time, I’m gonna need you,
I can tell It may seem easy for you to penetrate
Your will to ignore, but when it cuts back round
Death is the sickest way for attention

Just as you’re waiting there, you sit up in your evil chair;
Looking down on me, well, you never really give a shit
I’ve been searching for you.
I’ve stuck up for you
Too many times.
Well I got my real answer
And now I am my only war.
Each time I thought ahead, I had answers.
You come again.
Evil answers throw me back down in the hole.
Just when I would think to pass, Nothings gonna give.
But each time you walk on by, Do you really think I…?
It never really feels too good when I’m Holding everything inside of me; now that you would
Well, I’ve been searching for ya; stuck up for you too many times.
Well, I got my real answer. Now, I am my only war.
Each time I thought ahead, I had answers.
You come again; Evil answers throw me back down in the hole.
Just when I would think to pass; Nothings gonna give.
But each time you walk on by, Do you really think I watch?
Each time I thought ahead, I had answers; You come again.
Evil answers throw me back down in the hole.
Just when I would think to pass; Nothings gonna give.
But each time you walk on by, Do you really think I…care?

Track #16 “Graveyard Blues” – 3:20 

Had a dream last night that I was dead [x2]
Evil spirits all around my bed The devil came and grabbed my hand [x2]
Led me down to that red hot land Mean blue spirits [x2]
Made me moan and groan in misery Ferries and dragons ?
Glad I came Demons with eyelids dripping blood [x2] ?
This is hell I cried with all my might [x2] ?
Run so fast ’til someone woke me up.
