Quicksand
Slow sinking feeling kills the mood you're conveying
And it pulls me far down below
It might be best if you go
Can it not wait and hope for the best
Will it not stop a while to rest
I need to get up never mind cause I've done enough

The world waits around
But I keep slipping and losing ground
Do I not try so hard so good
I can't keep changing just because you think I should

Said all I need to and you don't understand still
Wish you saw picture my mind's eyes are deep
And they're cynical
One taken four more kills the pain healing that sore
I've taken what's left I took it all
And now you won't let me forget

The world waits around
But I keep slipping and losing ground
Do I not try so hard so good
I can't keep changing just because you think I should

Stop you're talking down
I lack the strength to sit or stand
I lost my self confidence in the quicksand

Not now or ever
Sink slowly my treasureback to top
Tip
I gave it all I gave it up then
I took it in and got enough but
I try to cancel out
Whatever I can't laugh about

So what does that say
There can't be anyway
I've done my worst and no one knows

One more day to fool them all
One more day to drop the ball
One more day to fade away

Fill a head with sand just to make it better
I had the chance to beat it in but I never
I should have taken it right then

One more day to fool them all
One more day to drop the ball
One more day to fade away

Now you've been taken
You won't stop shaking
Embrace every minute
You're all that's left in it
It's not happening
Some other day you'll fool them all
One more day to drop the ball
One more day to fade awayback to top
Shudder
So sad to everyone
Did not occur to you
Wake up an empty shell
Someone to crawl into

Dead days refuse to dream
The blanket still asleep
Concealing every flaw
Till you uncover me

Could it be that I'm fading far away
Straight out of it

No truth I can confirm
No truth that I can sense
Passing time I can't recall
The truth it surfaces

Open eyes open heart
Open up and fall apart

I'll be that burden you bearback to top
Awake and Dreaming
I can't lose anything
So what's left is mine
And I win this time

Consolation day
I'll make up a way
I'll know now just what to say

I'll get away from you
Wait and I'll be begging
I'll pull you down

I saw it all again
Fading memory became clear to me
I try but I can't say
That I'm yours for good
Support me you said you would

I'll get away from you
Wait and I'll be begging
I'll pull you down

Awake and dreaming
I'm only sleepingback to top
Above
Inside I'm gone
You knew that all along
Without the distance you never get away

Plastic bag image
Is over now it's over now
The color fading is all the way to grey

We are strong but we're dumb
We look above

Trusting the instinct
Is not about what you think
The one reaction is only to obey

And I'm staring
All around not far down
Judge the distance from the ground and pray
We are strong but we're dumb
We look aboveback to top
Condenser
Felt the best that I could feel censored every memory
Give me yours so I can feed mine
Anywhere but far away can't be what you meant to say
I won't miss you in the meantime

All jokes aside you should decide
If it pleases or pains you
You should be allowed but you were beat out
So nothing can save you

Closing up into the end try to start it up again
A lower voice and tired heart beats
Take away the self esteem force it through to get relief
Taking everything that I need

Spirits all keep coming down
Come around with answers
I'll cut my teeth in slivers
You're up and gone and senseless
Broken open your abscess

Is it all or is it none
I cant decide
Closing all the one way doors
Till I am left outside
That's just what I see
That's what I came to see
Now you shut me out
I feel left outback to top
Thin Spirits
Another face
Another empty space
The feelings fade
And all the lonely ones are left hiding

Your spirit's so thin
There's nothing left to take
Without rhyme or reason
You point the other way
I don't need to watch as
You go down in flames
I said over and over

The water comes
And leaves it's faint traces
You're bored to tears
I'll keep you here but you won't listenback to top
Glimpse
Tell me what you need to hear and I'll tell it to you again
I can fake it all if you can too
Will it stop from bleeding naturally enough
Can I hold my tongue in silent the words are slow and repeating
I know you why don't you take what you need and then go away
I know you why don't you take what you need

Die to get another glimpse in
So I'll watch the water rinse
Until we all get washed away
I never needed someone comforting me

I don't think I told you how I feel tonight
You perfect little angel your beautiful even now
I know you why don't you take what you need and go away
I know you why don't you take what you need

Die to get another glimpse
So I'll watch the water rinse
Until we all get washed away
I never needed someone comforting me
Down I goback to top
Costume For A Gutterball
The mask keeps on slipping and tearing
The holes are big enough to see
I strain and I'm bending to hear you
What did you tell me

So slow
You see me disappear
Taken in taken away
Caught in another memory
Looking for something left to see
Now I want something

The one in the corner it's moving
Slowly up slowly down
Never too brilliant or clever
It won't turn around
No one will know that I'm looking
They can't get to meback to top
Temporary Arms
I burn and melt and stick and fade
Your temporary arms invade
One of many last warnings
Cannot wipe the conscience clean

The strain wears in you whore me in again

Cannot connect the smirking world
The poison flower comes uncurled
If I believe I'm dreaming

And if they find you lost again
What will you tell them then

Collapsing in again you found what makes it sore
You triggered off the feelings that you felt before

I come crawling up again I need to eat I need a friend
Some one with me
No better feeling than escape avoid the feeling so you're

All the guilt pulls away if only forever

Replace the name replace the fear
I can't come out but I want you here
Im laughing now and then it floods
But not out loud

I feel you up and feel you down
I need your space I need it now
Another circumstance has gone and shut you down
Another fear awakened in the fault you foundback to top
Swallowtail
Let me in
And let me go
Tell me that
I need toknow

Swallow the key swallow the key
You feel compelled but it's far too late to try and tell me now
So I'll try to suck it out
Open mouth feels warm
Secrets swollen so sore

We all know and we can't ask why
You turned into an ugly butterfly
That shape of you
Closes in and forms a shade of grey
Hanging over hanging me

Sorry you're gone
The voices they left me thinking
The words that I've forgotten now
Try to come but can't come outback to top
