Track Name: The Nurses Can't Help Me
Wait, I think my mind is broken
Some curse caught in my heart
Well I cared but now I'm all alone
Whatever comes, I harm

And I can't take it, I can't take it,
I can't take it 'cause everyone's the same

Nobody, nobody else here
Nothing moves in catacombs
I could save but my psyche's gone again
To where the fields don't grow
Everybody says the nurses can help me
But they just tie me down like the wild kind
And I don't think I'm crazy, I just need a light…
To give it's glowing to mine

And I can't take it, I can't take it,
I can't take it 'cause everyone's the same

You look like everybody else, you sound like everybody else
And you are like everybody else and I don't need everybody else
Track Name: Golden
I rushed in, I got burned
I held off and you took her
I noticed she gripped tight
When I drove her to catch her flight

Confirmed my luck when she returned
With her love and her skin so golden
Maybe I should have taken your sisters advice
Maybe I shouldn't have given you that space you liked

Consumed by doubt, better just live it out
Condescending, my ignorance was yours to flout
Maybe I should've taken this all in my stride
Maybe you could've left me just an ounce of pride

Broke, down, dead at the side of the road

'Cause you're dead and gone
Even pleading couldn't save this one
You're dead and gone
Part of me hopes that you'll hear this one

'Cause you're broke, down, dead at the side of the road
When the storm draws close you'll be fighting the cold

You'll be dead and gone

Brief encounters that kept me going
Messages of intent that the cracks were showing
But they weren't

I've grown old
Cold as stone
We made home
Void of Soul

'Cause you're broke, down, dead at the side of the road
When the storm draws close you'll be fighting the cold

'Cause you're dead and gone
Track Name: Mouthful Of Glass
Something's wrong, the Captain's cold
He's got a piece of glass in his mouth
Well quick, call help, the bastard's choked
And if the vessel goes down, we drown

We're sick to the teeth of what we see
On the crest of every day
The polished sights on the grandest lies
Is enough to cause a sway

When you look yourself dead in the eye
Reaching out for a branch of soul
The flicker of life in your pupils die
When you realise you're failing to grow
Your insides wretch as the notion spreads
When you're gone, you'll occupy noone's heads
You're worse than meaningless
You are cold

And we were something
A glowing you'd shown in the violent seas
When everything was still
Now we are nothing
Awaken the shaking inside of me
And everything we kill

We're breaking out the golden tales
Of when we were young and full of hope
We're sinking now, we can't rely
On the wood beneath our feet to float
When your mind goes bad and your lungs collapse
Will your body just cease to be?
Well I guess living ain't easy with your organs freezing
You can't rely on air to breathe

And we were something
A glowing you'd shown in the violent seas
When everything was still
Now we are nothing
Awaken the shaking inside of me
And everything we kill
Track Name: Sweetheart
Sweetheart, I hear you coming while you watch your guilty feet
And I barely know where you've been or where you go to sleep
And sweetheart, your sins are showing, they shine through like silver blades
And they cut my chest wide open and tear apart my face

My girl, tell me what have you done with your red, deceitful lips
Have we come to be so lonesome that you'd do what you just did?
And my girl, why don't you want me? Some tiny piece of your heart still does?
I'd take all the air that you breathe if I didn't want you so much

And you spill out your lies, so deadly sure that you'll get away okay
And I spill out my eyes, for all the love that I gave away, my baby spilled tonight

My love, who held you last night? And how close d'you let them get?
And my love, what kept you all night from coming back to my bed?
Now every word feeds the fire inside me and I wanna burn every tear you cry
My little girl, why d'you crucify me when I was king and you were mine?

Well I lost my sweetheart that night, a tight squeeze shut off her beat
And I thought I'd made it all right as I lay down the cheat
She lay still and quiet as morning, a sweet scent she left behind
And I kissed her cheek, still glowing, wishing she'd open her eyes
