Track #1 “Whirlwind” – 3:03 

When I woke up today I was dizzy in my brain
It’s not that I like to feel this way
The wagon’s shaking and I feel it start to tilt
And I just go tumbling right back in a whirlwind again
Where I find myself at the end
Well I cannot seem to hold on to a fucking thought
This whirlwind’s got me and I’m racing out the door
It’s nice for a while, but when I try to focus
All of my convictions come crashing down around me again
I find myself all dried up, in the end I stare out my window
I smell a sour message coming
And it hovers around this house
Like some sort of dooming cloud
I cannot seem to keep my thoughts within a line
This whirlwind brings it up, the dust within the storm
The razor pulls until I haven’t got no more
And I just go tumbling right back in the whirlwind again
It’s been a week now and I haven’t seen the daylight
And all my friends are wondering, how I can put together
At my feet the wagon’s in a million pieces
So I’ve got to find the stuff to build it all back up again
Well I cannot seem to keep my thoughts within a line
This whirlwind brings it up, the dust within the storm
The razor pulls until I haven’t got no more
And I just go crumbling right back in the whirlwind again
When I woke up today I was dizzy in my brain
It’s not that I like to feel this way
We rigged a pull up, and I haven’t got no more
And all my convictions are crashing down around me again
I’ll find myself once again in the end

Track #2 “Seaweed” – 2:23 

There is a silence that paces us all
It’s sensitive to the peace that we’ve known
And if I could take that crevice in me
I’d fill it up with all that you bleed
I was walking into the water
And I was trying not to breathe
I could feel the current pulling and I just kept in deeper
I’m sick of the pain that you’re feeling
It’s weighing you down
If I could erase it all within just one dive
I wrap you precious around my soul and now I’m letting you go
As I drown these evil spirits and penetrate the obstacles
I feel the seaweed creeping up my skin
It’s like a monster that’s reaching for me
With the passion of life I’ve got left i’m gonna use it to sacrifice myself
Well, I dove down into the seaweed
Scared once before, but not anymore
As it twists and turns me away from the surface
Here’s my chance of letting it go
I’m sick of the pain that I’m feelin It’s weighing me down
If I could erase it all within just one fuckin’ dive
I wrap you precious around my soul and now I’m letting you go as I drown these evil spirits and penetrate the obstacles.

Track #3 “Absynthe” – 3:13  

There are these people that use you for
Their own need for deception By the size of their lies and
The size of the stories that they’re telling
They’ve proved themselves to be
Very small, small, small, small minded
Do you ever think when you’re dealing with the worst
The outcome is the best thing for you
And by the good of evil is the knowledge
That you face it (One day you’re going to have to)
I could put it in some theme of a tale
Or a story from a myth But it means a simple thing I ain’t worth nothing if there’s no perspective
Of truth in my life
Do you ever think when you’re dealing with the worst
The outcome is the best thing for you
And by the good of evil is the knowledge
That you face it (One day you’re gonna fucking have to) I think I’ve had enough
I wonder why I don’t just go off Don’t like to be a violent woman
But I know I have it in me I know I shouldn’t be surprised
Why some people look like hogs rolling in the mud It’s a dying shame
That’s where some people find truth

Track #4 “Another shot of whiskey” – 2:43 
You walk in with another headache
I can tell by the lines in your face
You seem to think if you just remove the problem the answers are what will come next
Another shot of whiskey and maybe I’ll be ready for what’s still crowded in your head
Never thinking that all the good times are what walked in with the bad
I don’t know why we compromise ourselves
I thought it was a common understanding with all I’ve tried to help with
Tell me, do I end up empty handed?
Another couple of beers while I’m safe here at the bar and maybe I’ll get me some rest
Don’t know why all the good times have to turn-up with the bad
It’s like a sword of hate you brandish it so proud
I wonder if you’re taught what you feel or is it the way you got it cold dead in your eye?
It would be good if you could just leave me well enough alone
The crime of fate is what I have to follow through if I’m going to get past you
Another shot of whiskey and that’s about the only way I can listen anymore
Go ahead and drown me of everything
At least I still got my place at the bar
It’s like a sword of hate you brandish it so proud
I wonder if you’re taught what you feel or is it the way you got it cold dead in your eye?
You walk in with another headache I can tell by the lines in your face you seem to think if you just remove the problem the answers are what will come next
Another shot of whiskey and that’s about the only way I can listen anymore
Never seen that all the good times are what walked in with the bad
 Track #5 “Insecurities” – 1:46 
Our insecurities, they bend us down on broken knees
Our insecurities, we wear them till we cannot see
The crap the shit the garbage our mind it has to swallow;
It makes us enemies, building up mistrust with greed
Turns me to shut the door and hide away while time gets lost
Your ignorant response can leave you looking of a beast
And when you’re pushing me away
You’re scared you’ll get too much
And when you’re playing the jester
Well I guess you ought to
Or else it might mirror a flaw that lies in you
Oh damn your insecurities
Not always insecure, but bold on what you think is right I hope you break the crown before you place it on your head
And when you’re pushing me away
You’re scared you’ll get too much
And when you’re playing the jester
Well I guess you ought to Or else it mirrors a flaw that lies in you
Oh damn your insecurities, they’re catching up with you
Track#6 “Slaughter of Bruce” – 3:18 

I was working in a shithole one day
Some fool came up to me and said “You’d make a star with that band,”
I said, “it’s not why we’re doing this, why can’t you fucking get it?”
‘Cause all I’ve got to do is release through
These obstacles I’ve got to beat
Release from the man who manipulates me
By the breaking of my back,
With nothing left worth saving
All I gotta do is release through the
Obstacles I’ve yet to beat
Take us to a sturdy ship
Where we raise our glasses
No pints too dodgy here
We don’t need our problems here
Away from all these people,
They’re posing about, waiting for the next scheme
To tip them off and leave them drowning In what they think is real
All that’s ever been and all that’s been said It’s not to my regret, you gotta
Face the edge of yourself And they say if you got humor through it all
You’ll find the will to survive what seems like hell
Take me to the water, launch me out to bloody sea
‘Cause all you gotta do is release
Through these obstacles you’ve got to beat
Take us to the water Launch us out to sea
And may the drunken mad ones follow me

Track #7  “Precious Blood” – 3:46 

There are these things I want the most
But they are usually one step furthest from my reach
Oh, but they always stand close enough
To take me to the next fuckin’ drink
Cause when it cuts, it really does My soul spills the blood
Don’t know how long it’s gonna take
But I’m gonna need a little more one day
Sometimes, I just want to know
Faster than my precious blood will let me roll
Is it real or, tell me, is it wrong
To keep these dreams strongest in my mind?
Cause when it cuts, it just gets deeper baby
Like when I go to touch you,
You’re the furthest from me
Don’t know how long it’s gonna take
But I’m gonna get me get me get a little more one day
Oh, it’s laying tired in me, it does
And when I see it there it makes me wanna…
It’s laying tired in me, it does, when I see it there
It’s all I can do to stare it in the face
Even the hours they hold heavy on me
Even the hours just hold the pain
And even the times get heavy, little weak Even the hours just hold the pain, there is no gain
All in all it comes back to me
With every sip of poison that I taste It’s only hurting me and nobody else
When it lies to me, it’s the strongest in my mind
Cause when it cuts, it just gets deeper baby
Like when I go to touch you,
You’re the furthest from me
Yeah Yeah
Don’t know how long it’s gonna take
But I ‘m gonna get me,
Get me
A little more one day.

Track #8 “While you’re twisting, I’m still breathing” – 2:38 
I tear myself apart and throw it on the ground in front of you
(Can’t hide that I’m a social wreck)
And though I sit within the wounds that one day could destroy me
Sometimes it’s hard to find my friends
And as far as i can see it, I ain’t got nothin else
And with all that you’ve taken from me, Well, go ahead and answer that yourself
This twisted world can sometimes seem like it’s caving in around me
But I will not let it waste my mind
And though you’re holding out on what lets me know where I stand
Sometimes it makes it worse to know I ever trusted you
And as far as I can see it, Hell, I ain’t got nothing else
And with all that you’ve taken from me, Well, go ahead and answer that yourself
And as far as I can see it, Hell, I ain’t got nothing else
And with all that you’ve taken from me, Well, go ahead and answer that yourself.
Don’t, don’t try it with me,
But don’t, don’t tell me lies
And then call it some kind of truth
Go ahead and walk me walk closer, escort me to the edge
Push me, push me I don’t care
Cause I’ll keep coming back
Slightly stronger, despite the worlds you’ve left and un-bled and said
Well just keep your twisting, keep your twisting
But I’ll keep breathing, I keep breathing
Track #9 “A“– 1:25 

There goes your burning, you can’t anticipate
The things you push for now are just forgotten the next day
And then you masturbate in your thoughts in our own eyes
Then you push some things on us you wont let us deny
There you go pushing us again
Well, I wont always have to understand
There you’re setting your own life on lies, forget about tomorrow, we’re here to survive
You apologize and I accept it all on faith
But still you do not try to push away your old mistakes.
And now I find myself underhand to what you want, you think you’ll find it better, child?
Well, go out and find it all!

Track #10 “Social Love (Live)” 1:55 
Track #11 “It doesn’t matter” – 3:27 

You’re laying there A statue full of vengeance
Gaping at the mouth One day where you had been
Down on your knees begging for
A little bit of answers
Well how many times With your questions?
I fall down in my prayer
Beautiful vengeance
Never ever thought to think maybe It’s all I have well all day long well
Screaming like a little child, go down In our dungeon and find just a little bit of anger
Here comes the night
Really really feel it burning It never ever really occurred to me
It never ever really occurred to me Down there on my grave
Beautiful vengeance
Never ever thought to think maybe it’s all I have
There I go I don’t feel no more Of their emotion, it doesn’t matter
It feels good when the time is right
But I don’t care it doesn’t feel good I drink too much but I rarely fuck
I don’t care doesn’t matter
Well you never seem to give a shit for me
Why should I be chasing after
As I’m leaving there you walk by Just standing still and I turn the other way
As you walk on by and I don’t care it doesn’t matter Well it just feels a little too tough
I don’t care it doesn’t feel good I drink too much and I always will I don’t care doesn’t matter
Well you never seem to give a shit for me
Why should I be chasing after As I’m leaving there you walk by
Just standing still and I turn the other way
As I’m leaving there you walk by Just standing still and I turn the other way
As you walk on by and I don’t care it doesn’t matter
Well it just feels a bit too strong I don’t care it doesn’t feel good I drink to love and I always will
I don’t care doesn’t matter
Well you never seem to give a shit for me I’m tired of always chasing after
As I’m leaving there you walk by
Just standing still and I turn the other fucking way.

 TRACK #12 “KINGS AND QUEENS” – 2:00 
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#13 “Wingo Lamo” – 2:13 

When I’m going into the bar
I’m there trying to ignore
This terror in me, I can’t set it free
I can’t make any sense
Unless it’s in a song
And every time I try to feel I only seem to wake up lifeless
Where would it ever end When we fall to our own demand
It takes up your life
And throws you like dice
Each time we fail,
It never gets over looked When you’re thinking that the cards lay forward
It takes up your answers With no second chances
Immobilized by the torment It hits so hard, there’s nothing more I can take
Needing each breath just to make it through
There’s nothing more you’re expected to do
There’s nothing worse than hating yourself
And parading around like you’re somebody else I wish that it would just all go to hell
Wanting some time just to be by myself

Track #14 “Here’s to your fuck” (F. Booth) – 1:53 

Shove your lies up your ass.
I hope you choke on his cock.
When I found out honey I’ll tell ya it wasn’t a shock.
You’re full of shit and you sure know how to suck.
Here’s to it baby, here’s to your fuck
Didn’t mean to hurt me, its touching your sympathy.
Have fun with prickface cause you sure fucking blew it with me.
You’re full of shit, sure know how to suck.
Here’s to it baby, here’s to your fuck.
Well baby, now this is the fucking end.
You sure got a fucked up way of making friends.
You’re full of shit, sure know how to suck.
Here’s to it baby, here’s to your fuck.

Track #15 “Second Skin” – 2:51 

I’ve thought about it, hell, about a million times
It takes all my strength just to keep me calm
But I have to tell myself, it’s best just to breathe
Holding it inside will only help to do me in!
Each time I close my eyes
I see another chain
It’s one I can’t forget, something I can not break out of
I need a second skin, something to hold me up
Can’t seem to get out of this hole I’ve dug myself right back in
Just to wake up tells me, hell, I must be brave
It hits me like a drug shot into my vein
It’s not as delightful, delightful of a pain
Immobilizing me almost makes think I’m dead
I need that second skin
Something to hold me tough
Can’t do it on my own sometimes I need just a little more help, well
I want that chance to give every drop that’s left in me
I need a second skin something I can not break out of!
I just tell myself, girl, just let it breathe
It’s a calmness I’m always searching for
But the dirt it gets so heavy
It falls above my head seeping from under my feet it just keeps on getting deeper
I need a second skin something to hold me up
Can’t do it on my own sometimes I need just a little more help
I’ve got that chance to give every drop that’s left in me
I need a second skin something I cannot break free of!
Though no ever said it’d be easy
Still one’s left to deny the choice that comes between your willingness to survive
Though you’re knowing what you stand up against
A world set to deceive
You need a special strength yeah
I’ve got that second skin yeah
I’ve got that chance to give
I’ve got the only way that I know how to live with it
I need a second skin something to hold me tough
I need a second skin
SOMETHING I CANNOT BREAK OUT OF!!

Track #16 “Daily Bread” – 6:03

There’s a motion in daily silence
That’s the yeses swimming round my head
I need to listen to my conscience
The world puts me down instead
I have four walls and they’re to watch me
The blankness jumps right off the page
My fingers try to tear the paper
A bitter moment is almost dead
It’s almost dead
Come take my hand
Thought I’d tell the bit of it
And what makes sense
And wait for all that I offer
And they take my only bread
And I leave another example of
Well it leaves me, at about a thousand miles
I feel the beating of the heartbreak
I feel the beating of the sun
And as I’m getting any closer
Well I’m more than full of you
In this place
This hell
Come take my hand
Thought I’d tell the bit of it
And what makes sense
And wait for all that I offer
And they take my only bread
There’s only so much I will take
Bitterness is my rage
And wait for all that I offer
And they take my only bread
Give yourself a break
Your only bread
Your only bread
And they’re down there
See ‘em lined up
They’re hungry on the pavement, feed them
When they lay their hands out for a bit of your spare change
I see the ones that are ignoring them
You know their pockets are lined full of gold
Clearly lined with their golden veins
Come take my hand
Thought I’d tell the bit of it
And what makes sense
They wait for all that I offer
And they take my only bread
There’s only so much I should take
Bitterness is no rage
They wait for all that I offer
And they take my only bread
Your only bread
But I sell the bread
Their only bread
They look down, down
Oh they bring you down
While all around them they line ‘em on the docks, one by one
For the rope around their ankle, the other end there is a rock
One by one they dunk them over
Sinking them over down into the ocean
But then it’s useless
It has been for
Come take my hand
Thought I’d tell the bit of it
And what of it makes sense
And wait for all that I offer
And they take my only bread
There’s only so much I will take
Bitterness is my rage
And wait for all that I offer
And they leave empty hands
Down
Oh they’re sending them down
One by one they knock them over
And they just sink down
Suddenly down
A simple down
Let’s all lay down
