Track Name: Belittle Me This
Your palm's all splintered up
From all these wooden nickles
See how the mighty fall
Lady fortune is fickle

I'm your supply and demand
This is all part of the plan
Damage and had soon you'll be
All eating right from my hand

They'll eat it right from my hands

So we've all got small dog syndrome
I'm not one to talk its my biggest flaw
How to compensate is the decision
I know you're about to crack, I see through what's hidden
How about you leave your baggage in the past
That banana in your pocket shoots a little fast for me
I normally I'm the one who's livin' dangerously
Take it our of my mouth
Aim for the ground
Why don't you aim for the ground

You've got your dick and your gun
Big man, big man shoot the sun
Shoe shine, heavy wrists, subordinates
Never, never, never, never, never, never miss
Paper kingdom, wage war
You've got a damn good lawyer
Paper kingdom, wage war
Your best friend is your lawyer

Why don't you aim for the ground?
It's where your spine was not found
Why don't you aim for the ground?
The ground

Following your heart shouldn't be this hard
And it's making me doubt my sanity
Picking my apart's gunna leave some scars
And it kinda feels like everybody's mad at me

Confused a bit, you're a run away
I'm a fugitive, the moon is full
I'm not really sure who's the lunatic
You looked me the eyes and you lied to me
I know you did
Hell and high water underneath a burned broken bridge

Following your heart shouldn't be this hard
And it's making me doubt my sanity
Picking my apart's gunna leave some scars
And it kinda feels like everybody's everybody's mad at me

Everybody's mad at me
Everybody's mad at me
Why don't you aim for the ground
Why don't you aim for the ground
Aim for the ground
Why don't you aim for the ground
Aim for the ground
Track Name: Stronger Better
I've got more problems than I thought
I've yet begun to fill these voids with all the stupid things I've bought
Eating this food it never leaves me satisfied
This pack of cigarettes is empty like the hole I feel inside

Oh I need something stronger
Give me something better
Whether it is right or wrong
I don't remember

Seems like this bowl is always cashed
This grass ain't cutting it so maybe it's just time to cut the grass
I'm losing money I suppose
By rolling up all of my twenties but I guess that's how it goes

Oh I need something stronger
Give me something better
Whether it is right or wrong
I don't remember

Something beats nothing at all
Paper beats rock and then the clock reads last call
My heart it beaten to a pulp
Me behind the pulpit scream that I'm the culprit

I need something stronger
Give me something better
Whether it is right or wrong
I need something stronger
Give me something better
Whether it is right or wrong
Whether it is right or wrong

This is, this is your brain
This is your brain on drugs
This is, this is your brain
This is your brain on drugs
This is, this is your brain
(ba da dum ba da dum ba da dum bah)
This is your brain on drugs
(ba da dum ba da dum ba da dum bah)
This is, this is your brain
(ba da dum ba da dum ba da dum bah)
This is your brain on drugs
(ba da dum ba da bow bow bow)

I need something stronger
Give me something better
Whether it is right or wrong
I need something stronger
Give me something better
Whether it is right or wrong
Whether it is right or wrong
Track Name: Chasing Legs
My arms are tiring of this straight jacket
I've got some coffee and some creamer all I need
Are some sugar packets
Either way you stack it
Apparently the correct answer's either A or B
My mind functions differently
since glimpsing options C and D
Steadfast in my monogamy

Ooooooh ooooooh
Ooooooh ooooooh
Peaking out the fleece the wolf is waiting underneath
Still and silent as you speak, sits the beast,
Watching you believe the sheep
Watching you believe the sheep
Watching you believe the sheep
Watching you believe the sheep
Watching you believe the
The things I'll do, the conversations I'll sit through just to get
Closer to you, just to get closer to you
And when you ask to be excused it's like
A thousand screaming people in the
In the room, in the, in the room
Now there's two things we can do when there's no longer any room
For you to be confused, for you to be confused

Cause the legs I chase are leading me astray
You're so close but yet so far away

Oooooooh oooooooh
Oooooooh oooooooh

The legs I chase are leading me astray
You're so close but yet so far away
Track Name: Underwater
My skin is stretched so thin above my veins
Cardiovascular refrain
And so tremor the nerves with every impulse that occurs
Resolved that it is all within my brain

Is this a mirror or a window?
The image there is merely innuendo
Panes, panes, panes against the inside of the frame
And the ring of broken glass strikes a crescendo

Crucify my eternity
You are the loudest god will ever speak to me

My bolts are lose but I broke all my wrenches
The civil war inside leaves me defenseless
With my head against my heart, who tore itself apart
And the other one lies dead down in the trenches

Oh oh oh the horrors, lead my horses to the slaughter
And I'm still holding my daughter as I hold her underwater
Underwater our shipwreck is perfectly preserved
At the bottom of the ocean where it won't be disturbed
And you might be getting smarter but the light is getting darker
And you might be fighting harder but light is getting darker

Can you save my baby?
Oh oh oh oh oh oh oh
Can you please, can you help me?
Oh oh oh oh oh oh oh
Can you pray for me, I'm always underwater

(Underwater I'm always under)
Pardoned and free to walk the gardens
Headstones sticking out the carpets
Inmates trapped in their apartments
Children burdened with the hardships
That their parents couldn't part with
(underwater I'm always under)
That their parents couldn't part with
Ending where you should've start with
Ending where you should have

Ending where you should've start with
Ending where you should have
(Underwater I'm always under)
That your parents couldn't part with
That your parents couldn't
(Underwater I'm always under)
Am I right? Am I wrong to be singing the same old song?

One more time
Oh oh oh the horrors, lead my horses to the slaughter
And I'm still holding my daughter as I hold her underwater
Underwater our shipwreck is perfectly preserved
At the bottom of the ocean where it won't be disturbed
And you might be getting smarter but the light is getting darker
And you might be fighting harder but the light, the light

You might be getting smarter but the light is getting darker
And you might be fighting harder but the light, the light
The light is getting darker
Track Name: Ragdoll
They say I'm just a ragdoll
Just sitting on the shelf
Come play with me and nobody else
But I still wanna play
I still wanna play

Elissa:
It's been foretold as the body gets cold
As the body gets cold as the body gets
There's less to hope as the body gets cold

Nikki:
I still wanna play
I still wanna play

Both:
She's your ticket out
Are you passing up a chance like this?
Oh she will let you in

Nikki:
and make you a prince but the fairy tale is over

Elissa:
But you were just a ragdoll
You were just a ragdoll

Elissa:
It's been foretold as the body gets cold
As the body gets cold as the body gets
There's less to hope as the body gets cold
It's been foretold as the body gets cold
As the body gets cold as the body gets
There's less to hope as the body gets cold

Nikki:
But I still wanna play
I still wanna play
But I still wanna play
I still wanna play

Both:
She's your ticket out
Are you passing up a chance like this?
Oh she will let you in

Nikki:
and make you a prince but the fairy tale is over

Elissa:
But you were just a ragdoll
You were just a ragdoll

Both:
This will never be enough for me
Enough for me to hold on, and,
Just like I feared when the silences got weird
After this many years that I've cheered on so long

And this will never be enough for me
Enough for me to hold on, and,
Just like I feared cause I feel so weird
After this many years that I've cheered

Why did you pull out your heart?
Why did you leave me to die?

This will never be enough for me
Enough for me to hold on, and,
Just like I feared when the silences got weird
After this many years that I've cheered on so long

And this will never be enough for me
Enough for me to hold on, and,
Just like I feared cause I feel so weird
After this many years that I've cheered on so long

Why did you pull out your heart?
Why did you leave me to die?
Track Name: What It Isn't
I'm layin' it out on the table
I doubt if you're able to sew me back up the same way
So I'm taking my vowels and I'm throwing them out to the wind
Cause It is what it is
Blood splattered knives hit the ground like they did
We fall to knees and our eyes seem to kiss
As we try to read lips, what did we do to deserve this?

I threw in the towel, as you're walking away
Reality slips between the sheets while memories fade
We're in a cloud up on the stage
But I'm no longer bitter about being a quitter
And you'd make me sicker if you stayed

The cylinder spins
Pinned to the wall arms out stretched it's a sin
Can't seem to pull my chest down from my chin
This is a ride that I didn't intend to get
Inching across measuring all in this world that is lost
Never could have estimated the cost of bearing our souls
In this hollow and vast holocaust

I threw in the towel, as you're walking away
Reality slips between the sheets while memories fade

Cut your losses and move on
Don't hesitate and the moment's gone
Carefully count your change and
Bored the trains before my tears turn into rain
Exchanging glances as we refrain

Cut your losses and move on
Don't hesitate and the moment's gone
Carefully count your change and
Board the trains before my tears turn into rain
Exchanging glances as we

Cuz I'm no longer bitter about being a quitter
And you'd make me, you'd make me, you'd make me
Sicker if you...
Track Name: Zombies
The brutes are at the door
The brutes are at the door
I tried to dissuade them but they keep on pushing forward
I got nothing more to offer
No more words to plead
Do your worst, you won't get none from me

Sunday afternoon and I was lying on the couch
That is when my entire day went south
My roommate staggers in and he is foaming at the mouth
I said "Hey dude is there something I can do to help you out?"

Let me put it down, your logic isn't sound
That barbaric manner following you like a hound
Reverse psychology and reason didn't work
Want a piece of me?
Well here's your fork

oh no, oh no, oh no no no
I've got brains, brain,s brains on my bed spread
The mailman came out me, had to blow off his head
And there's stains, stains, and they're all dark red
The incessant pounding at the door
It fills me with dread

Cuz you wanna leave
But they won't let you go

April 21st static takes the radio
A sea of limbs and teeth roll endlessly beyond the window
The internet is down, the faucets reduced to a drip
This Smith and Wesson feels cold
Sitting pretty on my lip

It's been weeks and days since the gunshots went away
The faces at the window seem more drawn up and decayed
My stomach's growling louder than the corpses are outside
Cock my .44 at least I tried

I got brains, brains, brains on my bed spread
If they ever find me I'll be dead, dead, and dead
Maybe this is penance for the things I did before
But there is pounding at the door
Incessant pounding at the door
And there is pounding at the door
incessant pounding at the door
