Track Name: Swooning Wounds
You stumbled down the stairs and waited for me there
I picked you up as we laughed it off and put on airs of debonaire

Heads held high despite the nights we felt empty
Giving in to seven sins
What's ours is what we see

Every memory is dealt in bruises
Temporary ink that loses shade with age but never fully fades

Now there's just wasted space in place of yesterday
Waiting with baited breath to fill the vacancy

Still licking wounds I was put through when we were young
Still as sad as I used to be but now it's not as fun

Every memory is dealt in bruises
Temporary ink that loses shade with age

But never really fades
Nothing seems to cure
It bleeds into my skin
And who'd I do this for?

Every memory is dealt in bruises
Temporary ink that loses shade with age but never fades
Every memory is dealt in bruises
Track Name: Speak Of The Devil
Satan is pacing your footsteps from below
He glides a glass along the ceiling everywhere you go
And ya know hes poisoned all the trees up from the lowest root
But if I didn't bother to shake the branches, I'd never eat a fruit

Caught between the fire and the sea
It's salt in the wound or living caustically

Floor boards creek, splintering veneer
Make sure you stop your feet cause the devil is near

He listens in and licks his lips with each click of your heels
It sends a shiver down his spine when he feels a hearse's wheels
He bites his fist when shaking knees are praying in the pews
He always longs for company and it doesn't matter whose

Caught between the fire and the sea
Salt in the wound or living caustically

He'll slowly bat his lashes and whisper in your ear
Just never trust a dress
The devil is near

Caught between the fire and the sea
It's salt in the wound or living caustically

Inside the details, advocating fear
Just keep the name off of your lips cause the devil is here
Track Name: I'll Sleep When I'm Tired
It isn't cold now, but I know come sundown
I'll feel ivory bones, right through my clothes
The crease of your tongue gets rung on the pavement
It's base entertainment we're succumbing to

It's hard not to talk to me like a child
When you've lost any point that you're trying to make
I know that
I know that you call yourself clever
I suppose that it's true if you say so yourself

But please don't go to sleep
It'd mean the world to me
If you stayed up to see me leave

I'll sleep when I'm tired
I'll sleep when I'm tired
I'll sleep when I'm ready to leave

You used to arch your back and now your arms are in a knot
Limber thoughts and now you're locked and can't connect the dots

If you breathed for me
And I stood in your shoes
Well I'm sure we'd be fine
And what good would that do?

I've taken your side, too many a time
It's wearing me down, holding your frown
You don't treat me the same in the crowds

Only circumstance while you packed your bags
Made a grand entrance, then jumped over the fence
Dateless at the dance
A vacuum to romance
With the patience that you had
I'm astounded that we ever stood a chance

Please don't go to sleep
It'd mean the world to me
If you stayed up
To see me leave

I'll sleep when I'm tired
I'll sleep when I'm tired
I'll sleep when I'm (x3)

Letting the consciousness slip, intelligence dips
I feel the loosening grip
Lying alone on your side with your eyes open wide
Every night, every time
Track Name: Jean Jackets
Stitch on a patch to jean jackets
Cover your tracks
And if the past bubbles back
Start papering over the cracks

Another bottom of a bottle
Place it on your mantle
Inside your gated den
Where the whole pack is gathering

Obsolete gear turns the machine
Idle organs in anatomy

Strike a match
Fan the flame and walk away
Watch it spread and live to see another day

Feed the scene and give it all it needs to breathe
Fasten the scars with who you think they think you are

Lay your roots to rest in confidence
Dredging up the dead is harder than it seems
When fire steeps the scenery

They danced to the glow as it warmed their skin
But they stomped out the flare that drew everyone in

And now they're blowing on the embers
That smolder on the ground
But if a phoenix should sing
Make sure you clip its wings
A lack of heart in spades
But they'll still wear jackets till the denim fades
Track Name: Let's Hope She Drowns
If it proves too hard harboring the fraud
Then grab your god cause we're lying
A misogynist who left a kiss on another killers lips
Seems that's what all a hypocrite should get
What a piercing, sharper wit
But it couldn't stab the witch
She had a suit of armor too many inches thick

BURN THE WITCH
BURN THE WITCH

I gathered sticks and stones to break those evil bones
Pleading breathing would postpone
To trust isn't enough, this century is rough
Believe in love and all that stuff
Melted down my money for a bluff

It's not a craft that I would like to be a part
When her calling card contains a pentagram inside a heart

BURN THE WITCH
BURN THE WITCH

She spelled it out and cast it down upon my head
Never questioning who I had let inside my bed
To trust isn't enough, this century is rough
Believe in love and all that stuff
Melted down my money for a bluff

The hourglass eroded right before her eyes
Watched the sand melt away the time

I kept a vial round my neck to catch her tears
And it stayed dry through all the sordid passing years
The doctor said to raise our torches to the town
To throw her in the deep and wish her luck
Let's hope she drowns

Let's hope she drowns (x5)

BURN THE WITCH
BURN THE WITCH (x2)
Track Name: Epilogue
Opened up a paper cut turning to my page
Now every word to read is red
A rose tinted overlay that's

Spoiling me flipping ahead a few to see what happens to you
It shouldn't take me having to bend your ear to learn my place
Just to find my place

Writing an epilogue ending for yourself
Wrapped in a bow and put back on the shelf
You wanted infinites, I wanna take it day by day
But there's no way
Because I'm always thinking what you're bound to say is

HEY
Something is different, I thought you would never
CHANGE
I didn't change anything, I'm still the
SAME
But you're really not and still have nothing left to
SAY
AY AY AY

Kept out of the sunlight, used as a bookend
Now you wilt into every hand anyone lends

Voice turns sweeter when you needed me but leaves so soon as someone new

Writing an epilogue ending for yourself
Wrapped in a bow and put back on the shelf
You wanted infinites, I wanna take it day by day
But there's no way
Because I'm always thinking what you're bound to say is

HEY
Something is different, I thought you would never
CHANGE
I didn't change anything, I'm still the
SAME
But you're really not and still have nothing left to
SAY
AY AY AY (x2)
