Track Name: Sidewalk Cracks
The sun is nothing but a manic depressive star.
Rising and setting, rising and setting.
I see sinking ships - you see future treasures.
I see a place to hide and you see the palms of my hands.
Can you show me what a mirror looks? I only see myself in the cracks of sidewalks.
Track Name: Don't Fly Too Close to the Sun
I broke all of your mirrors
So you wouldn't look at your vein old eyes.
And I ripped up all of your clothes.
So you would be naked all the time.

Rejoice for what you have. Because in the darkness of the light we make the worst decisions.
Rejoice for what you have. And don't take out from other people's hands.

I caught you stealing again.
Please tell me, how many purses do you need?
And the only reason you volunteer - is to flaunt your wealth and your greed.

Rejoice for what you have. Because in the darkness of the light we make the worst decisions.
Rejoice for what you have. And don't take out from other people's hands.

And all the rich people will stare
as w sit on our lawn chairs and cry about the economy
and oh, it's not fair. How they get so many more opportunities

Rejoice for what you have. Because in the darkness of the light we make the worst decisions.
Rejoice for what you have. And don't feed out from other people's hands.
Track Name: Dead Dogs
You say you want to die with me, well what do you think we are doing, sitting here alone in this smoky basement?
You say you want to die with me, well what do you think we are doing, sitting here alone in this dark basement?

Soon we'll be just like, all those ghosts in those stories, that we told in the car when we broke down in West Virginia.
Soon we'll be just like, all those ghosts in those stories, that we told in the mountains of West Virginia.

You'll be the latest fad. You'll be all the talk at school. Everyone saying how much, they loved you.
But I won't see them at the funeral, no, I'll be alone.
Like we were waiting for this.
But I won't be crying, no, I only do that when the dogs die in movies
Track Name: Friends Oh' Friends
My friends have no souls, they have no souls, they have an empty hole where their hearts should go
No matter what I say, they feel no pain, they're indestructible for reasons I can't explain
They have thick skin, so I'll never win, but I'll keep hanging in like some good samaritan
Every time I hang out I wish I wasn't, and every time I'm home I feel alone, so guess I'm to blame for these situations, I guess I'm to blame for being alone
Track Name: When The Birds Fly South
Are you really going to be able to protect me forever?
'Cause you know that once the birds fly South, you'll be all I have to watch over me.
And I can't explain all these goddamn mood swings, I'm changing faster than everything around me.
I'm sinking and I don't feel like trying to kick to stay afloat.

And I know that this sounds cliche but
how can this be normal?
I'll listen when you say that it will be okay.
But do you really think that you will be able to protect me forever?
Track Name: It's Hard
It's hard to count your lucky stars with all of this light pollution.
It's hard to give a shit with all of those pills in your system.

Oh it's hard, it's hard, it's hard

It's hard to quit smoking when that's all you've ever had
It's hard to rise again when you have been ashes for so fucking long.

Oh it's hard, it's hard, it's hard

But it might be worth it.
