Track Name: Intro
Bent over the stairs, she cries foul for a week
Kept moving her mouth, but all I hear is deceit
So stop fucking around

Make love for a while, she says that she don't know
Move back from the worst, still less then before
So stop fucking around
Track Name: Poet/Thief
Hope you found some self restraint
Oh honey, tell me, how's my pace?
Oh, hows my pace?
Hope you arrive 'bout quarter to four
As you take those keys to your mother's car
Oh, don't go far

Spending most nights, hoping you take me in my sleep
Cause I don't owe you anything
Toein' a fine line, between a poet and a thief
Cause I don't owe you a damn thing

She says end my life, cause I won't be waitin' long
for fear of a fight
He says am I right? Anticipating, oh?
That it turns out fine

Spending most nights, hoping you take me in my sleep
Cause I don't owe you anything
Toein' a fine line, between a poet and a thief
Cause I don't owe you a damn thing
Track Name: Boreal
You don't need me to remember, anyhow
No I won't meet you halfway
So please don't take this on yourself
Cause he won't, anyways

Been on notice, for a minute or a mile
They no longer hold the same weight
As I say

Oh, this host of mine
How is it that you should be defined
Yes we'll leave about half past five
With your forceps in my throat, lit by the moon
Yelling please forget me soon
Anyways
Track Name: Tonight
Hell we've got to start somewhere
Hows this transcendental thoroughfare?
So self-aware

Losin' saints, in favor of wealth
Regardless of personal health

Don't pretend that you've noticed
Could I stay longer than the night?
Just tonight
Still believe that you're stoic
Could I trouble you for a ride?
Just tonight

Trade you some foresight, for despair
Still held helpless by your stare
At least pretend to care

Losin' saints, in favor of wealth
Regardless of personal health

Don't pretend that you've noticed
Could I stay longer than the night?
Just tonight
Still believe that you're stoic
Could I trouble you for a ride?
Just tonight
Track Name: Masquerade
Where's the time gone, it's been a while
Stemmed by patience, innocent denial
Take it easy, you're still a runt
Hell I'll take this, for just a month
Where's the time gone? It's just a style
Seems you're moving along

Still don't believe yet a single moan
Wish I could take you for all you own
Still haven't seen you through a different lens
All this hatred don't make sense
Cause where's the time gone, it's just a style

Baby I've been waiting, through all this masquerading
Hoping to see you through the phone
Hopeless non-believers, all you ever needed was someone
To get you, cause
I've been waiting, through all this masquerading
Hoping to see you through the phone
Hopeless non-believers, all you ever needed was someone
To get you alone
Track Name: Company
Find you a neighbor, you're all gone
Stay for a photo, move along

Finally aware that you're on your way
Wake up shaking, but still afraid

We're all the same

See you and know I've got it all
With nothing to hold I'll be back at dawn

Finally aware that they're here to stay
Wake up shaking, but still afraid
Finally aware that, we're all the same

We're all the same
Track Name: A90
These fickle senses are taking over
Running circles in my mind
Poaching good men for holding on to
The bar stools to which they're confined
So determined to flood the annals
Of what was deemed mine
I guess that's alright

Cause I don't know what you're not
Please believe me
No I sure ain't holding, damn sure been bleeding
Stuck on, a strong memory that's just to plain for me
Don't need to know your thoughts,
You can keep them
Hold on believing they're not from a TV screen
A strong memory that's just to plain for me

So stay, take, then flee
Seems like a winner to me
Oh you say you'll disagree
But you're still quiet and free

All I hoped was that you'd relate
To all the bullshit I instigated
That seems fair, what a trade
This won't take long, so on I'll go

And on, and on, and on I'll go
As long as you know

Cause I don't know what you're not
Please believe me
No I sure ain't holding, damn sure been bleeding
Stuck on, a strong memory that's just to plain for me
Don't need to know your thoughts,
You can keep them
Hold on believing they're not from a TV screen
A strong memory that's just to plain for me
Track Name: Either Way
Stand tall
Eyes wide, like you wouldn't know either way
Flood lights
Left on, with an unmarked car for a name

Sit right down, so funny, oh what's the wait for?

Staring the same direction, through a third floor window pane
Hoping you find your martyr, though this shit seems to change
A year since you crossed my mind, as you don't I don't forgive
What have you done for me lately, some life I haven't lived

Fourth night,
Mind gone, I'll trade you a plight for your mace
Your eyes
Pills gone, so I don't see them today

Sit right down, so funny, oh what's the wait for?

Staring the same direction, through a third floor window pane
Hoping you find your martyr, though this shit seems to change
A year since you crossed my mind, as you don't I don't forgive
What have you done for me lately, some life I haven't lived

Like you wouldn't know either way
Like you wouldn't know either way

Sit right down, so funny, oh what's the wait for?

Staring the same direction, through a third floor window pane
Hoping you find your martyr, though this shit seems to change
A year since you crossed my mind, as you don't I don't forgive
What have you done for me lately, some life I haven't lived

Like you wouldn't know either way
Like you wouldn't know either way
