Track Name: Everything All at Once
I’ve made the same mistake twice
Don’t be like me

I can’t be everything all at once
I can’t be everything that you want
Track Name: I Am on Fire
Snake under my blanket
Takes all that it needs to
Pay for somebody else’s crime

I am on fire

Fake your stolen treasure
Break all of your windows
Face is too much to see

I am on fire
Track Name: Innocent
Cycling between one and five
Trying to get a reaction from you

We’re all innocent
Do anything to be content
It turns you on and on and off again
It’s all innocent

One of these days it’ll all fall apart
And I’ll be there
I’ll be there

We’re all innocent
Do anything to be content
It turns you on and on and off again
It’s all innocent
Falling, it’s falling, it’s falling, it’s falling
Track Name: I See Angels
All you ever wanted to be was single
You…
Eye for an eye, I suppose
Eye for an eye I've been told
Eye for an eye, so it goes
You always cut to the chase
Track Name: Animals
A man starved ten feet from my step
I saw him plenty of times before
He was tall
Did anybody love him?
It’s my fault
It’s my fault

I’d like to think we’re more than animals
But the evidence is slim to none
Are you so important you should live forever?
I think not

My dog was hit in the street
A black car
The driver never saw her
We talked for the first time in years
I told her, “that’s all, there’s probably nothing after this”


I’d like to think we’re more than animals
But the evidence is slim to none
Are you so important you should live forever?
I think not

So prideful
So ungrateful for this
So impossible
This is impossible
Track Name: Conjecture
You’re not some soldier
Staring it in the face
Heart inside out
Lady full of grace

Oh, god
It’s all conjecture

You’re not his mother
Staring him in the face
Eyes inside out

Oh, god
It’s all conjecture
Track Name: Lord, Have Mercy On Us All
The night my brother and I got fucked up
You stood out in the snow
In a dress and boots
I felt so bad for you
Freezing and unable to move from your position
Behind a grave

Sitting handcuffed on the curb
I kept looking in your direction
Hoping that you were safe and you weren’t scared
And you could get back to your fiancé
He’d do better than me
He does better than me

I wonder if you thought about it later
I know just what you did
It took me awhile to realize that you never cared about this

You used to be so beautiful, what happened?
You used to be great
It’s strange to see you every day
And then never see you again
Track Name: Sinners
Fissure
Pressure
Skyline
Laughter
La-la-la-la
Failure
Of sinners
Save us,
Redeemer
Track Name: Rosewater
Steam poured into the rain
They fought like animals
The fire grew anyway

Like silence I rest
I am silence, become death

It all boils down
Take your sons and your daughters
Bury them deep
And wait your turn

Like silence I rest
I am silence, become death

Thoughts run in circles and tire like a child
We’ll all burn in hell
I have seen enough to know
This is killing me
And I’ve only asked for rest

Don’t hold me to things that I’ve said
I was so simple
You become someone else every day
I thought I’d be better

(I have seen enough to know
This is killing me
I’m drowning under the ice
I’d hope you would understand)

Just listen:
I want to hold your hand
Be patient
I’d hope you would understand

Don’t hold me to things that I’ve said
I was so simple
You’ve become someone else every day
I thought we’d be more than this
