novocaine 04:21
we'll make or break slip away honestly i could wait for anything i could wait i could wait for novocaine cut to chase heaven's gate opens up tears the static out of me i'll just wait i'll just wait for novocaine i wrecked it all somehow these are such easily forgotten days i'll just wait i'll just wait for novocaine tightrope you walk it's not all your fault you'd play anybody's game i'll just wait i'll just wait for novocaine they put a stake right through my heart they bled me dry til the feeling stopped they put a bounty on my head they said goodbye said goodnight and that was it
tolerance 02:11
i built up a tolerance to being this way i've been chasing dragons for the race hunting for something i'll never attain i built up a tolerance to coming back home hearing voices coming from the walls bags packed just no where to get off i built up a tolerance to holding my breath i got a pain i think i wanna forget fifteen dollars gets you where it gets i built up a tolerance to things that i miss see you lying face down on the bed oil paint like blood on your hands oh god is that really all we'll know i don't want us both to die alone oh god is that really all we'll know poltergeists knocking at our door
rattlesnake 04:06
live for the moment i've been trying running out of reasons to control myself and yeah it might have been the drugs or their self medicine have a toast to your luck it never changes going unconscious i let them all nod out and back in as i told myself that it might just be the way that it had dawned on me from your arms to the grave all on paper i keep thinking maybe they were right and i'm wasting all my precious time but i keep riding with the ghost just to see if it's true if ill become their host meet my maker and you believed them all the ones you swam out to sea with never warned you when it got cold outside and the money was marked made your heart go dry got swept under tide i'm still breathing and someday i'll cut all the heartstrings just to save myself cause when your home's out of sight i hope you see me to what they call my life a teenage wasteland i'll make you see it all the ways you snuck into my head tearing holes in my sense till the good part of me died and the trembling stopped from your rattlesnake bite and it all went dark
kerosene 03:00
cold flame i've been you got love like kerosene i knew you'd finally call me out on my bullshit but baby not like this old dog new trick some memories they just can't resist and when they find me bleeding out know that there was never any doubt in my head and i was kicking concrete i was chasing your train guess i'll never see you again it's all my fault i'll stay dry til things fall apart and so you really thought i found it this time but baby not like this
i've been going in circles again got me thinking i'm unwise i'm better now than i was back then don't think it matters much i'm afraid that it's almost time especially now that i'm wound up i'm better now than i was back when i didn't know it was love drove you back to your parents house your school pictures lined up the walls i don't know what you were back then still never figured you out slammed the door on the way back broken owl wing spewing dust my heart's been breaking over branches again don't think it matters at all
you provided carrying arms but can you imagine it since whatever place this kamikaze lands my heart will sink and now we're just strung back around so i promise you i won't figure it out sometimes i'm just a slave to myself played down all my cards could never get this roundabout to stop such a shame we slept off our own peace of mind a little bit damaged with time but still we made it fly and now we're just strung back around
and for the days we lost down medicine road you had to give up the ghost this black dog will slay upon us crying out for a home why don't you pick up the phone porcelain doll is that really all you run from this broken dream's your fault you let the domino fall and as for the days we lost down medicine road you had to double the dose so when the doctors got sick we called our own trials something to cure ourselves quick but didn't work at all i walked this desert all alone just to prove that i was lost and when it all went to shit i just convinced myself that's it's all i run from (you had to put on a show)
side effects 02:07
i never had any alibi no recollection of that crazy night i threw my heart into a wishing well hoping i'd stop myself still hear you breaking over mountaintops some kind of mystery that no one solves except us now when my teeth fall out i'm never only dreaming in on the joke i guess i always knew that this would never end i got all your side effects like when my skeleton is crying out for relief like when my bloodstream's flowing backwards running up your sleeves like when your image stains my mind until my conscience bleeds and still it's all i want
roswell 02:33
what else did you think could go wrong cause i've been trying to cope but i can't stay strong what else did you think might be true cause i've been waiting too long for nothing to do what did you think had happened to me because i don't know if i should intervene what makes you think that this might be true cause i've been waiting too long for nothing to do
oak island 02:06
i just wanna be the sister that you never had i don't think i'll see it through christmas day coming in twos coughed up my future and i made a map buried the evidence somewhere on oak island give me a price to feel like this i never passed the test i've been paying for it i guess four layers deep under the surface somewhere on oak island we never dug you up again
push 03:02
i don't wanna be alone right now god i wish it was a little bit later think i'd rather be asleep right now dream about some mistake i made tell me why i'm living so fast i wish i was just a little bit younger then i wouldn't be afraid like this push it in just a little bit further you were right this never gets old waking up in another direction if circumstance is all we get let's come back the way we came i know it's a chemical thing that's why i spend each day just trying to get my head on straight think i'll try just a little bit harder some people they waste their time while others just play to stay i don't wanna do either of those things i just wanna make it stop and when i do i'll hold it in everything i wanted to say so when my eyes roll right back i won't remember anything well tell me why it never made sense i guess i figured out sooner than later that love's just another kind of bliss someday you'll come to miss take a ride in the getaway car some call it another chance but then they never wake up from it they take it just a little bit further
spectrogram 02:16
i know i'm in over my head i know i'm in debt to this never ending spectrogram the city slick fixed me in quick chewed up and spit i never meant to let this happen i never meant i wanna change i'll find a way a beautiful way to watch it die look in my eyes tell me why you lied to take my place no one to blame but that's okay it's not the same an empty page now it's too late
