Track Name: Registrar's Lobby
can't imagine what life could be
without an instrument to call my own
check the pressure of my blood, it's high
no one's tellin' me that I did good this time
that i'm doin' fine
stuck inside the registrar's lobby
and I'm lookin' for my pen
shooting blindly at all of my motives
coming up too short
sweepin' me under the mat

check the deep recesses of my brain
for a tune to sing another day
what was I thinkin' that I could compare
to the people that eat and breathe
the sweetest melodies
stuck inside the registrar's lobby
and I'm lookin' for my pen
shooting blindly at all of my motives
coming up too short
sweepin' me under the mat
Track Name: Life Is So Hard, Baby
Some days I act like my life is so hard, baby
but what do I know?
what do I do?
It's nothing compared to you

I looked at my life and I thought that I like you around
and I told myself that I'd be the better man for you
and here we are, dear
and I'm lettin' you down
lettin' you drown
leading you on
puttin' you off
when you need someone to love you

but what do I know?
what do I do?
It's nothing compared to you

you know, I can't help it if I haven't shown it lately
the girl that I love
who I'm always dreamin' of
is nobody else but you

I looked at my life and I thought that I like you around
and I told myself that I'd be the better man for you
and here we are, dear
and I'm lettin' you down
lettin' you drown
leading you on
puttin' you off
when you need someone to love you

the girl that I love
the one I've been dreamin' of
is nobody else but you
Track Name: Rosebush
I never understood what love was
I fell into an endless rosebush
I never understood what life
until I saw what came before

given just one more day
I coulda spent the night with you
given just another day
I coulda spent the night with you

I wanna be the one there
I wanna taste your stone serpentine hair
I wanna turn to stone
then we can be alone there

given just one more day
I coulda spent the night with you
given just another day
I coulda spent the night with you

I fell into an endless rosebush
I fell into an endless rosebush
I fell into an endless rosebush
I fell into an endless rosebush
I fell into an endless rosebush
I fell into an endless rosebush
Track Name: Dead and Gone
there is a boy that no one knows
who hides away so we can’t tell him
how good it could be
then he won’t have to start to regret
the day he chose to shut the world off
and live in a dream

he used to go on and on and on
speaking with great emotion
now all those days are dead and gone

there was a time when I would think
that anyone could see the warning
of flare in the sky
but we cannot always be secure
inside a body like a statue
and thick as a rock

there’s nothing that I could ever say
he’s got your full devotion
maybe it’s me that’s got to change
Track Name: Sinner's Prayer
I am envious of your spirit wind spinnin’ ‘round your home
I am jealous of the fire demon that has engulfed you
which pulls the scum like me into you

I am jealous of everyone you know
I don’t want you to be happy on your own

I want to become you if I am to exist in this world
I am jealous of your spirit wind
it does not exist

I am jealous of everyone you know
I don't want you to be happy on your own

In my dreams, I am son to the fire demon
I dream as he punctures the mind veil
Track Name: Strange Again
when we begin to realize
that time is gone
we’ll soon decide that everything must
change again
be strange again

why can’t my friends all stay?
they had to go away

when we believe
our actions have no consequence
we’re not aware
that maybe we have
changed someone
to feel like someone

why can’t my friends all stay?
things just turned out that way
