lyrics

1) Don't Let me Lose You: (Instrumental)

2) Black Mass:

I know I appear of able body and sound mind
but I've torn this page up and burned it one hundred thousand times.
I know I seem together through fake smiles and steady hands
but I don't ever sleep, I never have and it's made me what I am.

I've let my complexion get away from me.
Raccoon eyes see better in the dark.
In the mornings I'm cutting my teeth
just for something new.
I know my concrete skin seems calloused
but underneath beats a porcelain heart.
I've grown tired of picking up the pieces so I'd better break it myself.

I burned all your notes off the tip of my cigarette
and watched every word you ever wrote me die with the sunset.
I took one last drag and ashed it out on your picture.
I know you always loved dark poetry,
How could I ever forget?

3) Moonlit Dark City:

I feel the embers burn my fingers as I fade back into my car. These days, I've grown so disassociated, often I lose any grip I have at all. I'm not grounded to anyone or anything and I have nothing to rely on. When I sleep... when I'm sleeping alone, I often leave a light on. Not for fear, just knowing it's all still real. I can still fell your fist depressing into my chest. The wrenching in my guts makes it hard for me to sleep. Your scream still rings in my ears and shakes me to my core. With every line that I breathe in, always feeling I need more. It makes it hard for me to sleep. Sleep acts as an obfuscator, so I'll avoid him all I can. And when my dreams finally come back to me, I'll welcome them in open hands. Until then, I guess Insomnia will lay beside me. Maybe in his cold, limp arms I can find some sense of peace. It isn't you... it isn't me. It will never be we... Maybe I will never be.

4) All That's Left to Say:

I never liked to wear my issues on my sleeves,
but I've let the wardrobe out now.
The dust stays there;
on the lights and on the stairs
but all of your cute little dresses are gone now.

I guess somethings in life just never change.

Daddy used to beat me, but the worst was when he struck us with his words.
Mommy tried to kill me, but it was only in my head.
I wish that I could finish what you started but I just can't find it in myself.
So now I'm stuck here writing cause happiness was never meant for me.

I guess somethings in life just never change.

I know I seem of able body and sound mind,
but I've torn this page up and burned it one hundred thousand times.
I know I seem just like I'm doing well
but then why do I feel guilty every time my blood is spilled?
And now I'm listing everything we had with a tear just under lid.
Listening to those love songs with meanings I will always miss.
Staring at the dark night's sky thinking about your icy hands
and how I'll never hold them again
Yet I couldn't be more glad.

I guess somethings in life can change after all.
