Track Name: 55 Reasons
There's an awfully sick smell of death in here, but if I don't carry him then who will? So I take my place in the six man race. A walrus grizzly paul bear's place. Goodbye to the night. Hello to the air. Goodbye to you sir. I'll soon see you there.

Sweetie you look so good in your dark black robe with your scythe in your hand upon your throne. You've got 55 reasons for me to die. Well read me a story while I sing the lullaby.

But I know that one and one and one make three. You're the lying kind. You're unhappy with me, and I was mistreated repeatedly. Oh, you biting snake. Oh, unfaithful me.

The categories are too easy. The possessed and the possessive, and the rest make three. Let the lawyers do their best with me, and as for unrest don't you dare forget me.

Sweetie you look so good in your dark black robe with your scythe in your hand upon your throne. You've got 55 reasons for me to die. Well read me a story while I sing the lullaby.

This allegory story seems cheesy. Don't tear me to shreds before I take the knife to me. Don't speak in tongues to hell with epiphany. Coffee over green tea. Army over hunting. I think I'm on to something. You're proving it to me.

Sweetie you look so good in your dark black robe with your scythe in your hand upon your throne. You've got 55 reasons for me to die. Well read me a story while I sing the lullaby.

This story begins at the end of one man, and the loss of your heart to the burial hand. So every blade of green grass like your infantry. Lock up all your daughters -- beware of me. beware of me. be aware of me.

Sweetie you look so good in your dark black robe with your scythe in your hand upon your throne. You've got 55 reasons for me to die. Well read me a story while I sing the lullaby.

Sweetie you look so good in your dark black robe with your scythe in your hand upon your throne. You've got 55 reasons for me to die. Well you've got yours and I've got mine.
Track Name: Circle Universe
You ache for revolution
Well who's on your schedule today?
You cry need for revolution
Well, rip up your plans today
I know a sun that will set
I've got a kiss you'll forget
Oh, baby revolution is as simple as it gets

I need you here, I need you here, I need you now
I need your face, I need your face, I need it now
I know if you were here all of my troubles would disappear
and if not what would I care, I'd still have you here with me dear.

My mind goes in circles while trying to find your center
And my eyes are elliptical, myy muscles stacked thinner
Oh, hop in woman in my unmade bed
Let's make the ray that shoots that circle universe over again

I need you here, I need you here, I need you now
I need your face, I need your face, I need it now
I know if you were here all of my troubles would disappear
and if not what would I care, I'd still have you here with me dear.

I know a sun that will set
I've got a kiss you'll forget
Let's make the ray that shoots that circle universe over again.
Track Name: RIP RSVP
I don't believe the early bird always gets the worm
I know you'll say, "Clichés don't write themselves"
But matrimony isn't so instinctual
Though I might agree fear of loneliness may be

Don't put your yet laid eggs in one basket
We all thought once we had the golden egg
But underneath the scope, gold might be plastic
It's always the goose that gets away

Don't get all crazy, sad, and lonely
If things don't go the way they ought to be.
I've been wrong about these kind of things before, dear
I'm just another fish in the big sea

And this feels like I'm talking to a brick wall
I know you'll fear clichés won't go away
Trust me, this is not my cup of tea here
But sometimes there's just things you gotta say

Don't get all crazy, sad, and lonely
If things don't go the way they ought to be.
I've been wrong about these kind of things before, dear
I'm just another fish for you to see

I'm not going to your wedding in five years
It still hurts me that you're not here.
And now we've grown so different we might be strangers
I've got memories and dreams that just won't disappear

Don't get all crazy, sad, and lonely
If things don't go the way they ought to be.
I've been wrong about these kind of things before, dear
But this time I just don't wanna be
Track Name: You Can't Beat the Devil
She said: "I think you should start thinking about failure"
You of all people, should know better
You can ward off the demons
But you can't beat the devil.
:Sizzle:
:CLICK:
Track Name: Oh Time!
Oh time! What crime, you criminal!
You picked the stars, you stole the spark from our eyes.
This time, it kind of felt like I had found...
It felt like I had found her.

In time I'll find you'll leave my mind. The divine with the unkind, I'll lose you fully. And what will remain will be a time, a place, a name, an old surrounding.

Gradually clutching we crushed the ability to be lovers
So snap a photograph it's fleeting gracefully
It's leaving us alone again, to our own again.

With time I'll find you'll leave my mind. The divine with the unkind, I'll lose you fully. And what will remain will be a time, a place, a name, an old surrounding.

In time you'll miss -- move on -- and kiss new lips
And cry out the name of another
I fear I'll fear through time alone
with mirrors of the past propped up around me.

With time I'll find you'll leave my mind. The divine with the unkind, I'll lose you fully. And what will remain will be a time, a place, a name, an old surrounding... with old surroundings

Oh time, what crime, you criminal! You picked the stars, you stole the spark from our eyes.
Track Name: Turn Away
It's been over a year since you loved me the best
I know because I counted
Now every time you get a call from me
Only a robot talks to me

And now my nights bring nothing but bags under my eyes
Termites on my eyebrows
Cobwebs between my thighs
Maybe one day I will finally turn away

I run it over and over in my head again, how it ends then how it started
Now all I got to show is a lousy song for some to sing along with

And now my nights bring nothing but bags under my eyes
Termites on my eyebrows
Cobwebs between my thighs
Maybe one day I will finally turn away

It's been over a year since I cleaned my room
I know because it's crowded
It's been such a test to address this mess
Do you have any buttons to press?

And now my nights bring nothing but bags under my eyes
Termites on my eyebrows
Cobwebs between my thighs
Maybe one day I will finally turn away
Yeah, maybe one day I will finally turn away
Yeah, maybe one day I will finally turn away
Track Name: My Sweet Love
I've been told my heart is made of wire, and I am smart
But all the sense of man can't understand a smile such as yours

And I've been told that you've been known to hold me in your stare
and to beware and well aware you're coming for me
and you will

This love so naturally in every seed in every leaf in every tree it dwells within them all eternally

And if you finally see what follows life -- eternity
Then follow death and find my kiss upon your forehead and be still

This love so powerful it flows through me, it shivers leaves, it shakes the trees, it lifts the seas, it calls you to me
and it will

And if you finally see what follows life -- eternity
Then swallow death and feel my kiss upon your forehead and be still

My sweet love
Track Name: Island
When when the wind whispers
I just hear the same words
drawn out in echoes
And they
Yeah, they were right
Everything in hindsight comes out from its shadows

And all these dreams it's a shame that it's in black and white
When I wake I find my vision's drained of color.
A face, an embrace, and acres of sand surround the place
But when I wake it's just my covers.

Promises mouthed by me in darkness
Like a water ripple fortress
Will collapse

And the world
Feels like a heart that's beating
Cycles all repeating
Like it's in love

And I just can't take the time's beatings
I can't stand you leaving
But you're already gone

And all these dreams it's a shame that it's in black and white
When I wake I find my vision's drained of color.
A face, an embrace, and acres of sand surround the place
But when I wake it's just my covers.

So I sleep
Yeah, I sleep right through the sunrise
And dream myself an island where we're not wrong

So I sleep
I sleep right through the sunrise
And a dream myself an island where we're not wrong
Track Name: Your Name
Your name shakes me
Your name breaks me
Your name takes me
Without warning

Until it's this song
Just like that song
First I write one
And then forty

And there you go cheering me on. You know how heartache helps me get along. There you go cheering me on. You know how heartache helps me get along. I don't know which one is worse -- your spell or your curse. They both hurt, they both hurt, they both hurt.

I know people
That know people
That know people
That you know now

Oh to think how
They might not know
How we fit then
How I fell in

And there you go cheering me on. You know how heartache helps me get along. There you go cheering me on. You know how heartache helps me get along. I don't know which one is worse -- your spell or your curse. They both hurt, they both hurt, they both hurt.

My relationship with The End
Is a case where our friendship never ends
The love of your gentle face
Is a space I'll
Fill
With
Chocolate

Yeah, I'm meeting people
But I forget their names
Yeah, I go to parties
And forget why I came

Yeah, nobody else's name is the same
as the strain that I feel if I dare say your name

Oh Irene
Oh Irene
Oh Irene

Oh Irene
Oh Irene
Oh Irene

Oh Irene
Oh Irene
Oh Irene

And there you go cheering me on. You know how heartache helps me get along. There you go cheering me on. You know how heartache helps me get along. I don't know which one is worse -- your spell or your curse. They both hurt, they both hurt, they both hurt.

Quero ver Irene dar sua risada
Track Name: Amanda Amanda
Amanda Amanda
You're fiery red
Your blue eyes all frozen
They're striking me dead

Let's kiss our mouths open
Let's share the same bed
Amanda Amanda
All fiery red

Maybe it's by chance I fancy you may be the lasting kind
Maybe I'm just blind and antsy -- you're just the next to say goodbye
say goodbye

You're haunting me taunting me
All fiery red
You leave me inspecting my expecting head.

You're haunting me taunting me
All fiery red
You leave me inspecting my expecting head.

Maybe it's by chance I fancy you may be the lasting kind
Maybe I'm just blind and antsy -- you're just the next to say goodbye
say goodbye

Amanda Amanda
Your fiery red
Your blue eyes all frozen, they're striking me dead

Amanda Amanda
All fiery red
I'm scared to fall for you
And the things left

Amanda Amanda
All fiery red
I'm scared to fall for you
And the things left unsaid

Maybe it's by chance I fancy you may be the lasting kind
Maybe I'm just blind and antsy -- you're just the next to say goodbye
say goodbye
