Track Name: Do You Think I'm Happy
so tell me what you think you know about me
when I'm so lost and gone I'll hide my face
and say I don't have a life
I don't have a life
but I have to say that I don't mind anyway
share your scars they're who you are
and we'll all stay the same
now there's this young girl soaked
and she's all alone and I hear her crying
every tear that falls is another time that he's reminding
reminding her that she's not good enough
the only thing she ever learned from love
was that she was a fool to keep trying
share your scars they're who you are
and we'll all stay the same
do you think i'm happy
so bite your tongue
and fall asleep
rip the scabs off your swollen knees
i wanted you to want me
keep your voice down and fall asleep
share your scars they're who you are
and we'll all stay the same
do you think I'm happy
no I wouldn't change a thing
Track Name: Little Wolf
we bonded over how we were dead when we were just friends
that made us stronger in the end
remember how we knew all along how our problems could be solved
ya how we were wrong
you love all the dead things inside of me my little wolf
so close your eyes now everything will be alright
and it turns out that the first step is to breathe instead of just to scream and leave I know thats hard to believe
in the end when everyone leaves and its just you and me
and our cabin made of logs and our garden and all of our dogs
it'll be worth it
you love all the dead things inside of me my little wolf
I love every little thing you do
so scan my face for clues
because these hands are too stained to hold you
I love every little thing you do
my little wolf
so close your eyes now everything will be alright
Track Name: Little Wounds
now you don't sleep at night
they're all in your head
lay down in your bed
I said it'd be alright
I was lying again
if you want to stay with me all night
now the only thing thats stable in your life
is the shaking drink in your hand
and as always I have nothing to say
so I'll exchange words for an awkward glance
if you want to stay with me all night
then heal your little wounds
and I'll heal mine too
now you cannot believe that this is the end of you and me
heal your little wounds and i'll heal mine too
Track Name: Hunting Trip
next to your favorite tools a thermos keeps you warm
wearing hand me down boots that your father had worn
you wear a winter hat with your freezing hands
you keep your finger on the trigger but you just sit and stare
at the grass moving in the morning breeze
you said the dirt felt softer down on your knees
now you look at your hands and they start to shake
now you look at your hands and they don't look the same
in the pickup truck that your father died in
you have pictures of your brother playing with his three kids
now you look at your hands and they start to shake
now you look at your hands and they don't look the same
you're red eyed on the ride home back from your mother's house
where she was on her seventh glass and now your filled with doubt
that you'll ever be something in her eyes something so much more
than just the reason that she started drinking for
you can't ever go back I know you want to
It was on that hunting trip when you were a kid
you lost your father now you can't hide from it
Track Name: You're Getting Better
may i present my friend the disappointment
he's the one thats got my hands tied up
we're locked in a room and he's messing with the lights
making sure my eyes never adjust
these sheets that don't fit this uncomfortable bed
just pointless observations
I wake up with these great expectations
and fall asleep and think
that now you're getting better at being alone
yeah I know
may i present my friend you're so incredible
you make everyone so happy
may I present my friend you're so predictable
you love everyone but me
I see them coming with their torches lit
I see that they're all fighting fit
screaming children and these barking dogs
I knew that this was coming all along
now you're getting better at being alone
yeah i know when you're gone I'll be here for everyone
and you say love is the only thing that you know
yeah I know now that you're gone
because I'll be here for everyone and you say love is the only thing that you know
I know you're getting better at being alone
oh god i know
Track Name: Sink Your Teeth In Me
now in my dream I clipped my winds
and I drank from my cup the blood of conquered kings
now I'm doing fine no thats a lie
I feel them in my bones
now they're all monsters
that want to see me bleed
do you want to know what it feels like
sink your teeth in me
now there's a place for me
down at the guillotine
where my hands are tied
and my head cuts free
now they'll all sit and stare with their noses in the air
and they'll laugh how I have died
now they're all monsters that want to see me bleed
do you want to know what it feels like
sink your teeth in me
Track Name: The King Of No Man
you killed a man to see if he'd rise again
but he just laid there and bled
stare at pictures of you and me
all alone in this colony
you killed a man to see if he'd rise again
but he just laid there and bled
no one left just you and me
all alone in this colony
now if they judge our sins don't tell them about the things we did
you killed yourself to see if you'd rise again
but you just laid there and bled
on cardboard boxes and outdated magazines
all alone in this colony
you killed yourself to see if you'd rise again
but you just laid there and bled
no one left just me
all alone
now no one moves and no one speaks
I traded the sounds of conversations for the hum of these machines
now i'm the king of all the land I'm the king of no man
now i'll lick my wounds and wait for you only you
now if they judge our sins don't tell them about the things we did
now i'm the king of all the land
now I'm the king of no man
Track Name: Cancer
you walk down to the beach with your coffee and newspaper
you stare out to the ocean like you were on a movie screen
your two kids were playing in the sand
when the youngest one starts to cry
you pick him up and you say to him that this is life please give it another chance
does that sickness eat through you
does it eat away at your bones
your the strongest person that I know
nothing could ever get to you
but you're too smart to be fooled by that
you're too smart we all know
please hold my hand I need to hear you say
that this is life my son please give it another chance
I don't know if I can because I feel so low
so this is life please give it another chance
Track Name: St. John
just when you thought that things have changed
just when you thought your demons have gone away
it starts to rain it starts to beat down
my dogs digging in my bathtub he's trying to escape the sound
it's me and him it's him and I
we couldn't escape this if we tried
but oh god I know
St. John is in the bathroom crying
he is your friend he just doesn't want to see you dead yet
god this feels so serious
god this feels so permanent
every star in the sky is another that loved you
and the sky is white and the sky is bright
its me and him its him and I we couldn't escape this if we tried
St. John is in the bathroom crying he is your friend he just doesn't want to see you dead yet
Track Name: 17
so take exit 17 back home
pass the old diner that we all love
pass the abandoned house that we used to party in
roll down the window and have a smoke
we'd steal liquor from our parents and conceal it in a thermos
then huddle next to heaters freezing in my basement
now pass the old school yard
where we made our worst decisions
then pass your best friend's house
where we made permanent decisions
now one of these nights I know
I'm gonna have to go
now one of these nights I know
I will explode
stale beer and water logged cards
analyze your life while sitting in the back of your best friend's brand new car and then dream about a future with no friends in it
we'd steal liquor from our parents
all the faces and names all the times we swore we'd all stay the same
all the mistakes we made I wouldn't change
so take exit 17 back home
Track Name: The Mountains
I don't recall but there were kids involved
with guns and sharpened little knives
a few lost their lives
the things i'll remember when i'm trying to forget
are the things i'll keep close to my chest
the bone sticking through skin back and forth and back again
give me a sign that everything is alright
or better yet i'll forget and pretend this never happened
you keep me warm and you comfort me and you tell me to breath
and then you ask the question
close your eyes and count to three then tell me what you see
I'll tell you what I know and all the right ways to go
you see the first step is to breathe not just to scream and leave
it's something we all have but at times I know it's so hard to see
the bone sticking through skin back and forth and back again
is not there there is no tear in the skin just breathe I swear it never happened
I'll keep you warm and I'll comfort you I'll tell you everything to do
and then I'll ask the question
you know what I'm done do you want to know my name or the god I take
or how I pace when i'm all alone or stare out the window when I'm on the phone why am I always laughing
the bone sticking through skin back and forth and back again
give me a sign that everything is alright or better yet I'll forget and pretend this never happened
you keep me warm and you comfort me and you tell me to breathe
and then you'll ask the question
am I getting through to you what do these mountains mean to you
Track Name: Blonde Hair
you hum along to the sound of a car alarm
you count the bruises that tattoo your arm
they look the same as the stains on the mattress where you sleep
close your eyes and grind your teeth
your blonde hair all done up in knots
like when you were a kid before your love was lost
I spoke to your brother he says there's still love
but enough is enough
you do what you want and you forget the rest
you call that progress
remember those nights where we'd drive all night
you trace the outline of a heart into your thigh
we'd put our favorite album on but the whole disc skips
you hum along to the roar of the rumble strip
your blonde hair all done up in knots
like when you were a kid before your love was lost
I spoke to your mother one last time
a week before she died
you do what you want and you forget the rest
you call that progress
im done
