Track Name: Crashers (Highs and Lows)
Last remaining ones on earth
Too afraid to love or hurt
I hear you hung around your friends
Because they get, what you forget

High! Flight! Crash! Low!
Well, If I hold my tongue again
I just might burst, from all four sides
So I heard that you too broke too soon
Well everybody really does sometimes!
High! Flight! Crash! Low!
When you need all your funds again
Where do you go, who do you tell?
All the things you just have to know
All the books and facts, you just have to know

Rain dance across the lawn
Hoping for, a drop or two
You're for thirst like no one else
No one helps, like good help

High! Flight! Crash! Low!
If I hold my tongue again
I just might burst, from all four sides
So I heard that you broke too soon
Well everybody really does sometimes!
Cold! Heart! Break! Great!
When you need all your funds again
Where do you go, who do you tell?
All the things you just have to know
All the books and facts, you have to know
Track Name: Raptures
Clinical trials elude me
I don't understand what I'm in
Too many afflicted abrasions for me
I'll try hallucinogens

Wasting the days in bliss
Exchanging my tokens for love
Spending the nights in trips until
Indexed emotion erupts

You need help for your intense sessions
Calling all cars to the lack of questions
You can't hold what you can not capture
You talk in numbers and speak in raptures

Keeping your letters in storage
Begging for chlorine in pounds
Cleaning the traces of flashbacks
Oh you're cleaning unsettling sounds

Wiping the makeup away
Keep licking the salt till youre thin
Hanging yourself with the strings of your shoes
This is the way it begins

You need help for your intense sessions
Calling all cars to the lack of questions
You can not hold what you can not capture
You talk in numbers and speak in raptures

I hurry to the end so you can start over
I'm critical now and ever since I'm older

You need help for your intense sessions
Calling all cars to the lack of questions
You can not hold what you can not capture
You talk in numbers and speak in raptures

You need help for your intense sessions
Calling all cars to the lack of questions
You can not hold what you can not capture
You talk in numbers and speak in raptures
Track Name: Demands
I'm not the one to figure you out
I'm not the one to hold your hands down
You invite me to find a better way
You invite me to find a better way

Please don't play dumb I know what you're into
Those aren't the flowers I hand picked for you
You are not the kind of person I like
You are not the kind of person I like

Oh I need a treat to believe I'm good
Well-behaved and my motivation
Oh I need a treat to believe I'm good
Well-behaved and my motivation

Try me before I knock myself dead
Pushing away at your giant legs
Why don't you just get out of my way
Why don't you just get out of my way

I said I'm preoccupied with this and
I said you dont have to get more kids and
It's okay cause I see you enough
It's okay cause I see you enough

Oh I need a treat to believe I'm good
Well-behaved and my motivation
Oh I need a treat to believe I'm good
Well-behaved and my motivation
Oh I need a treat to believe I'm good
Well-behaved and my motivation
Oh I need a treat to believe I'm good
Well-behaved and my motivation

I'm not the one to figure you out
I'm not the one to hold your hands down
You invite me to find a better way
You invite me to find a better way

Please don't play dumb I know what you're into
Those aren't the flowers I hand picked for you
You are not the kind of person I like
You are not the kind of person I like
Track Name: Faustian Vice
Oh you've been caught
Oh you've been had
Who ever said
You had a choice

Undercover
Survival guides
Choosing between
nothing again

You're in your own faustian vice
You're in your own faustian vice
Once again, Once again, Once again, Once again
Once again, Once again, Once again, Once again
Once again, Once again, Once again, Once again
Once again, Once again, Once again, Once again

Salivating
The thought of one
And another
It's a weight

Under the safe
Covers again
Under the safe
Covers again

You're in your own faustian vice
You're in your own faustian vice
Once again, Once again, Once again, Once again
Once again, Once again, Once again, Once again
Once again, Once again, Once again, Once again
Once again, Once again, Once again, Once again
Track Name: Trickledown
When I'm the winner I don't want to hear
Downers, oh I just want you here
You can loosen up and hang out at my place
But don't be a dinosaur everyday

I really think I could do some good
And if I had the funds you know I would
And I'm not in it for myself yet
Okay, I'll admit it's sometimes yes

Well I'd hate to I'd argue or complain
But things aren't really going all that great,
It's not anything that you have done,
It's just me doing something really dumb

It's not anything that you have done,
It's just me doing something really dumb
It's not anything that you have done,
It's just me doing something really dumb

Sugarcoats aren't around no more
In the dust just like before
You shouldn't want to come off like that
It's difficult when you act like that

And if you find me comatose
Throw it all out of my windows
Let it trickle down like pouring rain
Sharing whatever comes my way

I was once a mighty beast
I could reach all the tops of trees
I was once a mighty beast
I could reach all the tops of trees

Hey would you save me if you knew you could?
Oh yeah I would save you, oh you know I would!
Track Name: Novella
In the darkest of rooms I still need you
It's not the black, just what's in it
I can still see a bit of light and
it's all I need to tell me that I'm alright, I'm alright

I'm not comfortable with what I see
I'd rather grab my coat, get up and leave
It's not like I pretend to say I did
It's not going the way that I predict

I'm the holder of cards again, and I hope
I can be a pawn for the rest of the
game so I, won't be afraid, so I
can win this all on my own,
win this all on my own

I'm not comfortable with what I see
I'd rather grab my coat, get up and leave
It's not like I pretend to say I did
It's not going the way that I predict

I'm not comfortable with what I see
I'd rather grab my coat, get up and leave
It's not like I pretend to say I did
It's not going the way that I predict

In the darkest of rooms I still need you
It's not the black, just what's in it
I can still see a bit of light and
it's all I need to tell me that I'm alright when I'm

In the darkest of rooms I still need you
It's not the black, just what's in it
Track Name: Heart Races
We hate your decorations to our
old home, you deserve whatever you get
Feeling like a scientist in a barroom
Drinking up, losing yet another...bet again

You know you hurt your family
You're feeling like a kid, in your room, away from people
To escape, onward now to the deep end
I might need a map to figure out just where to run now

I could win, everything I really wanted
Closer now, I really want to feel your heart race
For the best, it's probably better if I drop out
I heard it takes your talent to go for first place

Faster now, patience gets the best of me
I want it all now, but only I don't know how
I just need some help, from the ones who really love me
I might need a map to figure out just where to run now

Everyone's a knowledgeable, published author
Real and soaked, in the finest ink and perfumes
I might need a map to figure out just where to run now
I might need a map to figure out just where to run now
Track Name: So Cool
Lost my lines for my next big scene
I'm the coolest guy you've ever seen
I'm a pro, the best thats in my trade
I have faith issues that cannot wait

Let's go date, I'm told that I'm a catch
How'd you ever become so attached?
Love to hear from you, but I'm too deaf
Lazy learner loving you to death

I'm feeling fervor
So alive, into you, yeah yeah
So alive, into you, yeah yeah
But are you worth
hangin' around, round, round, round, round
hangin' around, round, round, round, round

I'm feeling fevor
So alive, into you, yeah yeah
So alive, into you, yeah yeah
But are you worth
hangin' around, round, round, round, round
hangin' around, round, round, round, round
with!

Why do you look in-between your toes?
When are you just going to grow?
Where'd you learn to replicate my twitch?
Where'd you learn to always scratch my itch?

I don't mean to be so intrusive
You looked like you'd need a place to live
There's no home here for you, go
When are you just going to grow?

I'm feeling fervor
So alive, into you, yeah yeah
So alive, into you, yeah yeah
But are you worth
hangin' around, round, round, round, round
hangin' around, round, round, round, round
