This Could Be Love
Ive got a book of matches
Ive got a can of kerosene
Ive got some bad ideas, involving you and me
I don't blame you for walking away
I touch myself at thoughts of flames
I shat the bead and layed there in it
Thinking of you, wide awake for days
Wide awake for days
And I found you tounge tied
My twisted little brain
You couldnt crack a smile
I didnt catch your name
I don't blame you for walking away
Id do the same if I saw me
I swear it's not contagious
Four short steps we can erase this

Step one, slit my throat
Step two, play in my blood
Step three, cover me in dirty sheets and run laughing
Out of the house
Step four, stop at lake michigan and wrinse your crimson hands

You took me hostage and made your demands
I couldnt meet them so you cut off my fingers
One by one
One by one
Im like a broken record
Ive got a needle scratching me
It injects the poison of alchohol iv
I don't blame you for walking away
Id do the same if I saw me
I swear it's not contagious
I swear to God it's not contagious

Step one, slit my throat
Step two, play in my blood
Step three, cover me in dirty sheets and run laughing
Out of the house
Step four, stop at berkley marina and wrinse your crimson hands

You took me hostage and made your demands
I couldnt meet them so you cut off my fingers
One by one

This could be love
(love for fire)
This could be love
(love for fire)
This could be love
For fire, for ever more

Step one, slit my throat
Step two, play in my blood
Step three, cover me in dirty sheets and run laughing
Out of the house
Step four, stop off at pittsburg peir and wrinse your crimson hands

You took me hostage and made your demands
I couldnt meet them so you cut off my fingers
One by one
One by oneback to top
We've Had Enough
In the shadows where their heads hang low
You hear voices as the wind blows
Asking can't you see
Reminding you to breathe
It's only time before it catches up
To you and all your broken luck
I found a better way
To get even with my memory

In the darkness where the angels cry
Give us water, give us back our lives
I'll press this concrete floor
And it's all we have left to live for
They will never face
We're only second hand
It's sick and lonely fighting back the tears
Had every urge to fangle both our ears

That said we've had enough
Please turn that fucking radio off
Aint nothin on the airwave in the despair we feel

In the shadows where their heads hang low
You hear voices as the wind blows
Asking can't you see
Reminding you to breathe
It's only time before it catches up
To you and all your broken luck
I found a better way
To get even with my enemies

That said we've had enough
Please turn that fucking radio off
Aint nothin on the airwave in the despair we feel
That said we've had enough
But walk among us all and turn it up
Aint nothin on the airwave in the hatred we feel

This is our biggest fear
The only tunes that we hear
Come via antenna through your car radio

That said we've had enough (we've had enough!)
That said we've had enough (we've had enough!)back to top
One Hundred Stories
You're in the next room sleeping and I'm shouting out a song for you
I shouldn't wake you over the furnace, but I should swear to someone you'd have loved every note
So dream a good one tonight
I'll listen to the bad ones when they come
Get up in my ear 'till I hear every word
Every turn of your tongue, I will tighten my grip
No one could tell even if I fell 100 stories straight down, down, down
No one could tell even if I fell 100 stories down

I was getting bored with hurting myself
If you fall down enough, well soon enough, you will find hell
It can't be as… as pretty as we hoped it would be
It's not even warm here, not even ten degrees

This bed is too big to sleep in, and I'm dying just to feel you breath
You couldn't see across the ocean, but I was turning over 'till the vampires sleep
So dream a good one tonight
I'll listen to the bad ones when they come
Get up in my ear 'till I hear every word
Every turn of your tongue, I will tighten my grip
No one could tell even if I fell 100 stories straight down, down, down
No one could tell even if I fell 100 stories down

I was getting bored with hurting myself
If you fall down enough, well soon enough, you will find hell
It can't be as… as pretty as we hoped it would be
It's not even warm here, not even ten degrees

Dream a good one tonight
Dream a good one tonight
Dream a good one tonight
Dream a good one tonight

I was getting bored with hurting myself
So dream a good one tonight
I was getting bored with hurting myself
So dream a good one tonight
I was getting bored with hurting myself
So dream a good one tonight
I was getting bored with hurting myselfback to top
Continental
I've got a dying urge to feel the way you do
Too close for comfort, bed and breakfast in a spoon
The shortest breath of your young life
A long walk home on friday night
You made, one last stop at the store
So close to perfect, swear to hell thought it was you
This bouncing baby boys now turning baby blue
I've got your pictures on my walls, I got a long list of calls I must make...
To your existing family
You had 9 lives and one by one you chewed them up
Your final coffin nails been driven far too much
This won't take long you said I'm not going far
Go wait in the car
Go wait in the car

I often wonder what's it feels like to be you
A mess like this stuck on your hands with crazy glue
Ran out of time, no kiss goodbye
Wish I oculd learn to let this sleeping dog die
With out lying to myself
You had 9 lives and one by one you chewed them up
Your final coffin nails been driven far too much
This won't take long you said I'm not going far
Go wait in the car
Go wait in the car
You had 9 lives and one by one you chewed them up
Your final coffin nails been driven far too much
This won't take long you said I'm not going far
Go wait in the car
Go wait in the carback to top
All on Black
I put it all on black
The color you're all dressed in
And a stab in the back
Left you bleeding on the floor
And their mourning the death
The recent passing of your insides
I smile and regret
Everytime I think of how I spoke to you

I put it all in back
Of my mind where I hold you
I'm just trying to keep track
How far back it really goes
And I'm living in lack
Of the blood sent from the heavens
I'm just tryin to relax
As a killer's waiting right outside my door

What's black and white was red all over
This tired, busted, organ donor

Sweet blasphemy, my giving tree
It hasn't rained in years
I bring to you this sacrificial offering of virgin ears
Leave it to me, I'll remain free
From all the comforts home
And where that is, I'm pleased as pissed to say
I'll never really know

I put 'em all in black
The four walls of my bedroom
And I trimmed and then bled
Peeled your picture off the wall
And I'm living in lack
Of the blood sent from your heartbeat
That arrived in your neck
Everytime I salivated over you

What's upside down was coated in silver
This crucifix is my four leaf clover

Sweet blasphemy, my giving tree
It hasn't rained in years
I bring to you this sacrificial offering of virgin ears
Leave it to me, I'll remain free
From all the comforts home
And where that is, I'm pleased as pissed to say
I'll never really know

One of these days
It's gonna catch up to you
Throwin looks like those around
And one of these nights
I promise to you
I'll soon be sleeping sound
As soon as I leave townback to top
Emma
Emma appeared like an angel
Emma fell like rain
Into my lap, like a heart attack
Like the lightning from her name
I'm running dry of bad excuses
Don't wanna lie or seem intrusive
But time hasn't told me anything
And neither has she

A poinsetta in poison rain
Twenty-two local rips of an injury
Washed her down the drain
With one silver bullet and two vicodin
And two vicodin

Emma woke up in darkness
Suitcase already packed
Wrote on the bag stand, signed in blood
Sincerely never coming back
A nightmare on my street the day she arrived
The nightmarish household in which she died
'cause it made her feel at home
Somehow made me feel at home

A poinsetta in poison rain
Twenty-two local rips of an injury
Washed her down the drain
With one wooden stake through the heart
And two vicodin

A poinsetta in poison rain
Twenty-two local rips of an injury
Washed her down the drain
With one silver bullet and two vicodin
And we watched the sun fall crown
On a city that sleeps in a world upside down
A slow ticket straight out of town
You went out with a bang when you took
With you all my dreams underground
With you all my dreams underground
With you all my dreams underground
With you all my dreams undergroundback to top
Fatally Yours
There's no mystery no more
There's no talking to you
You had other things in store
I guess I felt I was through
I answered every question
As accurately as I could
I don't hear from you no more
But I get the message
Crashed your car through my front door
I pulled you from the wreckage
You told me that you miss me
But you meant with the grill and hood
You'd kill me if you could
If it's okay
I'll grab my shit and leave
I won't say one word
I'll keep my tricks up my sleeve
You flew off the handle
You opened fire on me
Put me out, put me out of misery
I'm fatally yours
You said bye to me that night
Lit and left me burning
Out of my mind, but in my sight
I saw the tables turning
I had a friend that needed me
Had a wish that won't come true
Now it's killing two
If it's okay
I'll just grab my shit and leave
I won't say one word
I'll keep my tricks up my sleeve
You flew off the handle
Opened fire on me
Put me out, put me out of misery
I'm fatally yours [x4]back to top
Every Thug Needs a Lady
I know it's dark here
You know that I'm scared, too
For some reason right now
Of everything but you
Right now, you're all that I recognize
You know I came here
When I needed your soft voice
I needed to hear something
That sounded like an answer
And I'll wait here and sometimes I get one

It's nothing I'll forget
When the moon gets tired
You're stuck to me every day
Believe in what I am
Because it's all I have today
And tomorrow who knows where we'll be

From here I can hardly see a thing
But I will follow anyone who brings me to you
For now, forever, for on and on and on

You know it starts here
Outside waiting in the cold
Kiss me once in the snow
I swear it never gets old
And I will promise you I can make it warmer next year
You know I came here
When I needed your soft voice
I needed to hear something
That sounded like an answer
Now I stay here and everyday I get one

It's nothing I'll forget
When the moon gets tired
You're stuck to me every day
Believe in what I am
Because it's all I have today
And tomorrow who knows where we'll be

From here I can hardly see a thing
But I will follow anyone who brings me to you
For now, forever, for on and on and on

So go plug in your electric blanket
We could stay in the southern summer wedding day
Go plug in your electric blanket
We can stay hereback to top
Blue Carolina
It's everything that I can do right now
To not think about you moving further off
With every passing second
Every night of this lonely summertime
I feel it missing from my heart
A part was kicked back from my soul
Well I can hardly wait
Until I get the sun and your lips both pressing on my skin
Well I can hardly wait
Until I feel that thrill in my heart that starts inside your eyes
And the song in my head that burns so good on my tongue
Yes I will
Yeah yeah
Yes I will
The night is ending as the sun warms your face
Won't you turn around and stay for good
The air is getting much to cold
I am nervous and anxious
It really counts this time
You know all my favorite singers
Have stolen all of my best lines
Well I can hardly wait
Until I get the sun and your lips both pressing on my skin
Well I can hardly wait
Until I feel that thrill in my heart that starts inside your eyes
And the song in my head that burns so good on my tongue
Yes I will
Yeah yeah
Yes I will
Yeah yeah
Someday I'll burn this bed
Only two feet wide
Where I'll hide
For the next 17 days
I will ask myself how badly do I want this?

I really want this

Well I can hardly wait
Until I get the sun and your lips both pressing on my skin
Well I can hardly wait
Until I feel that thrill in my heart that starts inside your eyes
And the song in my head that burns so good on my tongue
Yes I will
Yeah yeah
Yes I will
Yeah yeah

Yes I willback to top
If We Never Go Inside
Tried to pin it down one night
For some of us it changed our lives
A few of us never saw it coming
Like the fire it disappeared
It happens at a wonderful age
With the traffic lights
It reminds me of change
I made up rules to follow for good
Now I wonder where I fucked up
And some of us did
The night never ends if we never go inside
The moon is always full
Your calender is always pinned on summertime

[chorus]
Were you planning on staying forever
You know the feeling gets old
But don't you remember
Hold your breath
Walked out into the daylight

Tried to pin it down one night
For some of us it saved our lives
A few of us never saw it coming
Like the fire it disappeared
It happens at a wonderful age
With the traffic lights
And my key chains
I made up rules to follow for good
Now I wonder where I fucked up
And some of us did
I'm just scared I may never say goodbye
I won't be around
To hold you down and pry open your ears
As we watch

[chorus x2]

Is this why you worked so hard?
Is this why you've run so far?
Same place, same hello, same goodbye
Helps you get through beat up insides

[chorus x2]back to top
Blue in the Face
Its about time
That I came clean with you
No longer fine
I'm no longer running smooth
I thought that i
Found myself on to something new
Just one more line
I repeat over and over again till I'm blue in the face
With a choking regret
Cuz I talked in circles around you on my bed
Can't say I blame you one bit when you kept it all inside
When you left that night

Its about time
That you got sick of me
No longer fun
And so far from interesting
I thought that i
Found me a cure for feeling old
Just one more line
To keep me sleeping loudly and cold
In disgrace with a shameful regret
As I talk in tongues to myself in my bed
Can't say I blame you one bit when you kept it all inside
When you left that night

And all that followed fell
Like mercury to hell
So now we lost our heads for the last time
And all that followed fell
Like mercury to hell
So now we lost our heads for the last time

And I don't dream
Since I quit sleeping
And I havent slept
Since I met you
And you can't breathe
Without coughing in daytime
Neither can i
So what do you say?
Your coffin or mine?back to top
