Track Name: Only One
I Am The Bottle You've Been Craving,
I Am What You've Left Unprepared,
I Am What You Can Only Get Through Stealing,
I Am What You Have Never Dared,
I Am The Only One Worth Saving,
I Am The Only One

You're One Of Many Crows Caught Feeding,
You Take What You Cannot Provide,
You Probe For Weakness That's Revealing,
& Shove Your Beak Deep Inside,
I Am The Only One Worth Saving,
I Am The Only One

I Am The Only One,
The Bread of Life To Some,
I Am The Only One

I Am The Only One,
The Father's Only Son,
I Am The Only One
Track Name: Egggz
First Things First,
I'm Fed Up,
Half Empty By Now,
Enough Is Enough,

With A Clinched Fist,
Faced Against The Odds,
I Will Spoil & Spit,
Just To Make Sense,
Of What I Have Become.
It Is What Is,
& What Is Done Is Done,
I Am What I Am,
Living, Living, Living To Die

Drop The Facade,
There Is No Excuse,
You Sight For Sore Eyes,
What Are You Trying To Prove?

A Day Late,
& A Dollar Short,
You Will Beg & Go Fetch,
Just To Return To The Trough Again
You Will Pay,
For What You Have Done,
With Your Arrogance, Your Ego,
Your Self-Righteous Dignity
Track Name: The Weight
Medication
& Burnt Coffee Grounds,
Exercised Unrest
Quiet & Lean,
How Has It Come To This?
How Much Was It Worth?
How Much Did They Get From You?
You've Been Spread Thin For Too Long
But It Will All Be Over Soon

For This Has Got To Stop,
Nothing Is What It Seems,
But I Will Bear
The Weight

Call It A Day,
To Keep It Together,
'Cause I See What's Getting To You,
'Cause, Kid, It Got To Me Too

For This Has Got To Stop,
Nothing Is What It Seems,
But I Will Bear
The Weight
Track Name: Bad Wolf
We Kept Quietly Composed,
But It Took Its Toll,
& Within The Hour,
It Was Over

Then Reality Set In,
& The Impact Faded,
Leaving A Lifetime
To Find Paradise Again

Patience,
Wont You Take The Lead This Time,
Experience,
Admit That We Will Be Just Fine,
We're Doing Fine,
On & On,
We Make Our Mark,
For In The End
What Do We Have To Lose?

So Come What May,
We Will Extract Voiceless Art,
We Will Fingerprint Stolen Thoughts,
Come What May,
We Will Knit Impressions Of Form,
We Will Define Our Time At Every Turn,
Now It's Our Turn,
On & On,
We Make Our Mark,
So In The End
Our Ghosts Will Prevail
Track Name: Johnny
Johnny & Me,
Set Out For The Streets,
& We Went Ridin',
We Went Ridin'

The First One Was A Waitress,
The Second One Didn't Fight,
& The The Third One,
I Wasn't There

But Johnny You Wore Those Boots,
& Johnny You Wore Those Glasses,
Now Johnny You Match The Description,
& You're My Man

So Run, Johnny, Run,
Set Out For Ohio,
& Please Take Me,
Take Me With You

Cause, Johnny, I Kept Our Secret,
On Everything I Promise,
That, Johnny, I Lied To All Of Them,
'Cause Your My Man
Track Name: Uh-Oh
We Were Set In Our Way,
Faded Jeans & Silver Studs,
So We Changed Our Names,
& Waded Through Lace & Baby's Breath,

Wuh-Uh-Oh-Oh
Wuh-Uh-Oh-Uh-Oh
Wuh-Uh-Oh-Oh
Wuh-Uh-Oh-Uh-Oh

We Never Had To Run Away From Here,
& We'll Never Have Wings, That's For Sure,
It Left A Bittersweet Unspoken Fury

Wuh-Uh-Oh-Oh
Wuh-Uh-Oh-Uh-Oh
Wuh-Uh-Oh-Oh
Wuh-Uh-Oh-Uh-Oh
Track Name: Know What I Mean?
I Am An Aborter,
Stumbling Behind The Beat,
You Shine Starry Eyes,
To Not Laugh When Smiling,
& I Spoke Of Burning Landscapes,
Of Cherry Blossom Trees,
But You Don't Understand Just What I Mean

-Lets Go!-

I Was A Child,
Bouncing On Proxy Knees,
While You Turned Out,
To Regret Me,
So I Turned My Chair,
Put My Face In A Corner
To Adhere To Insignificant Technicalities,
But I Forget You Can't Know Just What I Mean

But I've Paid My Debt,
I've Made My Bed,
Let Me Sleep,
I Got One More To Regret,
Another Bottle To Forget
Still I Believe
You Should All Be Ashamed,
You Should All Be Ashamed,
You Should All Just Be Ashamed, Ashamed, Ashamed,
Know What I Mean?
Track Name: Piece X Piece
I Know That You've Been Here Before,
You Know What I Cannot Say,
For Even If I Am Enough,
You'll Turn Over To Play It Safe

Piece By Piece
Piece By Piece

I Wish I Could Give You What You Wanted,
All The World Plus Four Years To Find,
But What I Can Offer Is Limited,
My Broken Heart, My Hands, & I
Track Name: Virginia Dare
Virginia Feels The Same,
Trying To Smile Through Whats Going Round & Round &,
She Drank Coffee & Coughed,
While Our Daughter Slept In The Next Room,

From Death To Distance We Did Part,
Sewing Sheets Ceased At Your Neck,
Ensconced In Earth Is Where I Laid You To Rest

Woh-Oh-Oh-Uh-Oh
Virginia Wont Rest Dead
Woh-Oh-Oh-Uh-Oh
Virginia Wont Rest Dead

Virginia Returned The Other Day,
Now The Music Can't Drown Cortman Out & Out &,
I Just Had To Turn Away
While They Unveiled Themselves On The Front Lawn

Mirrors & Mornings,
Bring Nightmares To Me,
& Ashes Return To Ashes,
While Dust To Dust

Woh-Oh-Oh-Uh-Oh
Virginia Wont Rest Dead
Woh-Oh-Oh-Uh-Oh
Virginia Wont Rest Dead

Take Me Where You Are,
But I Shouldn't Start That Again,
& What Are They Waiting For?
Do They Think That They All Can Have Me?
When They Caught Me Today,
I Kept Laughing At Them All
Track Name: -M-
I Held You Down,
I Thought I Secured You,
You Kept Your Head Intact,
Without Telling Anyone At All,
& I Never Thought To Ask,
Sitting Drunk In The Rain,
If Pulling Your Earring Out,
Meant Anything At All

Here Is Your Hand Back,
Here Is Your Name,
Here Is Your Pride,
Here Is Your Wedding Dress,
Here Is Anything At All,
I Just Want My Old Life Back,
Why Can't It Be That Simple,
For Everything As It Is,
Means Nothing At All,
It Means Nothing At All,
It Means Nothing At All,
It Means Nothing At All,
It Means Nothing At All,

Through Me A Spade Is A Spade,
Through Me I Am My Own,
Through Me The Horror Of The Void,
Means Nothing At All,
It Means Nothing At All,
It Means Nothing At All,
It Means Nothing At All,
It Means Nothing At All,
Nothing At All
