Track Name: Friendly Fire
i pinned my heart up on the wall
i raised my hand before i talked
we retire, with gasoline and fraying wire
packed and ready to go
i'm not too sentimental to let it all burn
the more i learn, the less that i fear
the sound of thunder tumbling near
our re-do, is what i can give
our re-do comes with black fingertips
we're equipped, with secrets told in confidence
love don't live here no more
i'm not too sentimental to let it all burn
friendly fire, lighting up the night
giving in to my desire to burn it all down,
spread the ashes all around
we retire, with gasoline and fraying wire
packed and ready to go
i'm not too sentimental
sirens fade in background
i'm not too sentimental to let it all burn
Track Name: Here Goes Everything
Temptation put to rest in canyons deep
The virgin snow it moans under our feet
Winter's coming through the window panes again
Four days to dry out, the fire wanes
Thoughts flare with the sound of distant trains
Winter's coming through the window panes again
Tonight's the kind of night you can't be left alone
Impulses hanging from a string
One eye on your wallet, one eye on your soul
Well, here goes everything
Track Name: Novocaine
eating my own tail, blurring the lines
i made a bet with my uncomfortable mind
tuxedos waltzing on baby grand
alibis drip, drip, drip from the phone in your hand
novocaine
you help to ease the ache, but you're causing me some pain
novocaine
late night fixations flow from the dial
i drank some hokum televangelist style
that fuzzy feeling, though not unique
rare is the dealer who's all spray-tan and teeth
novocaine
you help to ease the ache, but you're causing me some pain
novocaine
this isn't me
i don't know what i am, i don't know what i'm going to be
but this can't be it
i laid some money on a neon red name
for seven seconds of a quieted brain
lets get together, live in a box,
and never chase those crazy ideas again
novocaine
you help to ease the ache, but you're causing me some pain
