Track Name: Knock On Wood
it’s friday night and i’m sick again, it’s surely no surprise. i’ve brought some things up to the light including all of your lies. i’ve got to question why i’m still here moping all around when i could be up and running all around town. you’re so unpredictable. so unpredictable. you’re so despicable. so damn despicable. never tell myself the truth. (there’s still hope.) i will forget you. (there’s still hope.) no more words to describe my luck. i'll knock on wood that i keep this up. it’s all caving in so fast. slow down. i can’t bear this and i don’t want to. this didn’t have to happen. this didn’t have to happen. i never tell myself the truth. (there’s still hope.) i will forget you. (there’s still hope.) no more words to describe the pain. i'll knock on wood that i stay sane. you are not worth a thing. you are not worth a thing. why? why? why? why? sometimes i get all caught up in a whirl as if i’m coming to terms with the end of the world.
Track Name: I'm Better Off Not Knowing
i wouldn’t lie. die, please don’t die. don’t smother me in truth. won’t watch the news. save your breath i, i'm not listening. hush, don’t make a peep. lush, go to sleep. cry all night long. write a sad song. save your breath i, i’m not listening. save your breath i, i’m not listening. save your breath i, i’m not listening.
Track Name: Over
as i sit in my room staring at the wall; thinking about this all; thoughts get deeper in the fall. i want this to be over. another thought to write in my diary to write as i lean on this balcony; your name all over the paper. i remember your room i don't want to leave. no other place i could be
i can see your apparition. i want this to be over. over. over.
Track Name: Atmosphere
i feel a change in the atmosphere. i’ve been feeling strange ever since you came near. i feel a change in the atmosphere. i'm out of range and i can't bear to hear. why am I still here? i really should be on my way and last night i had a nightmare and it came true today. why am i so bad with words? don't know what to say. here I am, just sitting, wondering what games you will play.
Track Name: You're Not
everything gets better as long as you know what to do. here’s a stupid letter for you to read and think these things through. my vision’s getting redder as i walk through these hard times, and i am a beggar so please try not to avoid the signs. you’re not the lonely type. you’re not the lonely type. you’re not the lonely type of girl. everything gets better as long as you know what to do. here’s a stupid letter for you to read and think these things through. my vision’s getting redder as i walk through these hard times, and i am a beggar so please try not to avoid the signs. you’re not the homely type. you’re not the homely type. you’re not the homely type of girl. you’re not the lonely type. you’re not the lonely type. you’re not the lonely type of girl. you’re not the only type. you’re not the only type. you’re not the only type of girl. you’re not the homely type. you’re not the homely type. you’re not the homely type of girl. you’re not the lonely type. you’re not the lonely type. you’re not the lonely type of girl. why am i in love? why am i in love? why am i in love? why am i in love? why am i in love? why am i in love? why am i in love? why am i in love? why am i in love?
Track Name: Rainbow
i don’t have any time for snow. i’ve got to let everybody know. there’s a certain place that i like to go to see my rainbow. move. move. please move. i’ve got to get there. you’re the medicine for an illness i can’t treat by myself. move. move. please move. i’ve got to get there. i am ready for something new. i've got to get out of the blue. i get tired of waiting.
that’s why i have my rainbow. i'm so ready for something new. i've got to get out of the blue. i get tired of waiting. that’s why i have my rainbow. move. move. please move. i’ve got to get there. you were something special to me, you know i can’t lie. you were so elegant now you've left me behind.
Track Name: Spiders (Freaking Out)
i've had dreams of spiders as they crawl on me throughout the night. i’ve had dreams of high waters that carried me towards the sea. i'm freaking out. i'm freaking out. i’ve had dreams of fire as it burned the bridge behind me. i've had dreams of liars as they remind me of you. i'm freaking out. i'm freaking out. so go on and be yourself, the person who put my emotions on a shelf. tonight i will dream of the promised land and happiness. tomorrow i'll dream of my regrets and sorriness. i'm freaking out. i'm freaking out. i've had dreams of fire as it burned the bridge behind me. i've had dreams of liars as they remind me of you. i’m freaking out. i’m freaking out. i'm freaking out. i'm freaking out. i'm freaking out. i'm freaking out.
Track Name: Anxiety
is it cowardice if i go home? i’m feeling pretty tense and want to be alone. i must admit that i’ve got a somber tone tonight. i could blow through the fucking ceiling. the wounds are gone but they’re not healing. is there any way to stop this feeling of doubt? everything seems distorted like a television screen. my heart feels so contorted, although it isn’t from the caffeine. there’s a missing piece to this puzzle. let me offer you my rebuttal. i’m not very good at being subtle at all. i’ve got to get the hell out of dodge, now. i need a soft bed so i can lie down. i guarantee that it’ll make its way around. oh, god. so is this paranoia or anxiety? whatever it is, it’s really getting to me. i know i’m not who you want me to be at all. everything seems distorted like a television screen. my heart feels so contorted, although it isn’t from the caffeine this time. this time. this time. this time.
Track Name: Coming To Terms With The End Of The World
do you want to go back and start over again and choose a path to follow that isn’t this? repair some old friendships, et cetera. i could go on, but it’s too big of a list. change brings fear and fear brings you. change brings fear and fear brings you. you can not go back to change anything. acceptance is useful for future events. you may endure some painful burns and stings. there’s only one “first time”, so make it count. change brings fear and fear brings you. change brings fear and fear brings you. change brings fear and fear brings you. change brings fear and fear brings you. it’s so hard to handle, yeah. it’s like the end of the world. it’s so hard to handle, yeah. it’s like the end of the world. it’s a different feeling; it feels like you’re coming to terms with the end of the world. change brings fear and fear brings you. change brings fear and fear brings you. change brings fear and fear brings you. change brings fear and fear brings you.
