Track Name: All The Stars
I loved you first, I knew you first, you held me first.
I kissed you first, I saw you first, but I wasn't your first choice. No I'm nobodies first choice.

All the stars began to fall and the weight of the world began to crawl.

You were my first, you saved me first, I killed you first.
I said it first, "the regret it hurts." I quit my search, you were the worst, for what it's worth.

All the stars began to fall and the weight of the world began to crawl, began to crawl.
Track Name: I Am Gone
I hope you still hear me breathing, I hope you learn to love, I'm not gone I was just leaving. Another cold night in bed, just the voices in your head, please don't leave me, but know...

I am gone, I've been dead on my feet since the day my mum turned her head. I am gone, please don't forget me my love, but you must move on.

I hear you sing my songs when dreaming, is it cause you hear me in your ear soft, sad whispers singing, singing... but,

I am gone, I've been dead on my feet since the day my mum turned her head. I am gone, please don't forget me my love, but you must go on... alone.

Some other day my love, some other day, some other day my love.
Some other day my love, we will meet again. We will meet again, we will meet again. Oh, some other day my love we'll meet again.
Track Name: I'll Love You Till The Day I Die
Oh my god all of the cheap plastic plates, when winter comes and the faucets freeze. You'll have no warmth and I'll show signs of disease, and both our souls will die in these hospital walls (will be set free).

Where were you when the lights went dark? Where were you when my heart plumished into the stark? oh I want you to know something...

I'll love you till the day I die, I swear by the stars in the sky, I wonder in the afterlife, if I'll still be yours and you'll be mine, I have to have you every night, to feel your touch is to be alive (3x)
Track Name: I've Got You
I would have never cared for you, I wouldn't expect you to care for me. When my head hung low, you held me high above the trees. You said:

"I see the light, I see the heart in you. I see the good, I see the good in you. I see the fire hid in the darkness, you won't be consumed, won't be consumed, I've got you."

I wear this smile, but it's just for show. You see from the outside you already know. No one thought that a pretty face, could be such a fucking a waste.

But, you see the light, you see the heart in me. You see the good, you see the good in me. You are the fire hid in the darkness, I won't be consumed, won't be consumed, I've got you.

I see the light, I see the heart in you. I see the good, I see the good in you. I see the fire hid in the darkness, you won't be consumed, won't be consumed, I've got you see the light, you see the heart in me. You see the good, you see the good in me. You are the fire hid in the darkness, I won't be consumed, won't be consumed, I've got...

You see the light. You see the heart... in me. You are the fire, hid in the darkness. I won't be consumed, cause I've got you.
Track Name: Strange Sheep
Boy in the chamber how I love to hear you sing, haunt me softly in my dreams. Inside your aching heart magic seems to coexist, you could only wish, you could only wish.

But I will keep you safe, just listen to my breathing. I can feel you shake. Slowly you're defeating all the hope you squandered up, cause in this life you're out of luck.

Boy in the bathroom how I hate to see you cry, but I stare intently into those brown eyes. Alive and well you'll do fine, the world is yours for the choosing. It's easy to fall and say you're losing. Alive, but you're alive, you're alive.

But I will keep you safe, just listen to my breathing. I can feel you shake. Slowly you're defeating all the hope you squandered up, cause in this life you're out of luck.

Boy in the wet grass, standing in the pouring rain... you're a strange, strange sheep.
Track Name: We The People
I had dream about a cave an anorexic fellow stood on the inside and he waved good-bye and off I went. Strangely enough I could fly over the hills of grey and black, precipitation soot and ash. What happened to the human race? I took a walk in the snow passed a couple holding hands, I don't really know what it's like to be in love, but I hope, I hope...

One day we will see that all the hate that we bring to each other, we don't even know each other, but I hope, I hope one day we will know. I will hold onto our salvation.

Why aren't the bombs solving all our problems? We're a disgrace, we're a disgrace.

I met a fellow on the streets lent him twenty dollars even though the lies were swirling down the gutter. I have had those days when bad things pile onto each other. Do we really know each other? What is our salvation? Body bags and Christmas trees it's funny how such simple things can bring us all together no matter what the weather. I will never love anyone or anything cause I don't think that I deserve a chance.

Just give yourself a chance and I know you will. We the people deserve more than laws and pills.

Why aren't the bombs solving all our problems? We're a disgrace, we're a disgrace (2x)
Track Name: Wonderful
Oh it's wonderful, so damn wonderful. Don't you wonder how a life could be so cruel? My intentions aren't always good and things don't turn out the way they should, but I know that it's...

Wonderful (repeat)
Track Name: Zombie Lips
Honey I spent my whole life, in the palm of your hands, foot tracks covered in sand. I was lost, I was blinded. And the cat I curled up with on the velvet couch has stopped breathing, this is a lie, I can't believe I believed love was real.

And if a heart has a home I think I'll keep it in my back pocket with my sticks and stones. This vacant house has a grudge, I think I'm ready to run, don't care whatcha say now.

I'm finally free to be nothin' at all. I'm on the run and it feels like a thrill., Suitcase of cash and a letter from a shaky hand. Zombie lips how's it feel to be kissin' him? (Zombie, zombie lips)

Cafe on 32, buskers that sing of blue. This city is my dream, this city runs deep in my veins. Two sided tape me to the wall, let the fire burn the shadows I see let them be what I wanna see. Come home one day I smell the flowers, I think I know why he's been gone for hours... but

I'm finally free to be nothin' at all. I'm on the run and it feels like a thrill., Suitcase of cash and a letter from a shaky hand. Zombie lips how's it feel to be kissin' him? (Zombie, zombie lips)

My eyes are open I didn't hear you say, all the people in the world are out to get me. My eyes are open I didn't hear you say, all the men in the world are out to get me. You said: "Keep your eyes open, look straight at me." I guess I should have listened, but I know this isn't meant to be. (Zombie lips, ah)
