Fragments 06:17
You can't create more time. You just make it. If you want a new life, just take it. And if you want to change the world, then speak real clear And make sure someone's listening (listening) And if you want to break my heart, then stay right here. Yeah don't go anywhere. Do you love me now? Do you love me now? Do you love me now? Do you love me now? Do you love me now? Do you love me now? Do you love me now? Everything comes in pieces. Do you love me yet? Fucking prove it. Try to ask yourself: Are you really different? Know that your life is more frightening than writing a song. It's an action of fractions you're passing along And these oceans of emotion will crash once they hit the shore (I promise you) And it's the closest I will get to sincerity. Every praise I make just looks so fake and crude to me And it's the closest I will come to purity. Simulations never follow me. Do you love me now? Do you love me now? Do you love me now? Do you love me now? Do you love me now? Do you love me now? Do you love me now? My heart is made up of pieces. Do you get it yet? Can't you see through this? You know all too well You cannot make things perfect. No, I'll be shifting through lists of these possible loves With this pain in my brain. It feels scattered like doves Though the sky where my eyes have been drifting towards recently And it's the closest I can be to egocentricity. This overwhelming sense of rejection will sneak behind and tear at me And it'll slam me to the ground into reality And I'll deal with my disparity. Do you love me now? Do you love me now? Do you love me now? Don't you love me now? Don't you love me now? Why don't you love me now? Why don't you love me now? This is where I fall down shattered on the floor As I'm swept around with a million more Pieces of myself I once learned to lose Though it never helped me forget the truth. The truth.

A Death 05:22
Inevitability, you are my mother bleeding seeds of sour lust onto the mounds of bleeding crust unto all that holy dust I shall return bathed in fire The world is ice But I'm the spark That can ignite your world I can warm you or I can BURN YOU DOWN They tied me to the chain link fence And beat me down--I've no defense I always knew I'd die in... I always knew I'd die in... I always knew... Impossibility, you are my father growing limbs of odd proportion singing psalms of all abortion speaking truths that are factual but dishonest because you cannot tell the difference (no) The world is dark But I'm the spark That lights the path I can save you or I can DAMN YOUR SOUL They tied me to the chain link fence And beat me down--I've no defense I always knew I'd die in... I always knew I'd die in... I always knew... Impracticality, you are my brother Raising flags to stay the army Arming thugs who wish to harm me Complying with Spring just to see Winter die And take me with it (because . . .) The world is me And I'm the dark There is no life There is no spark You've murdered me Everything I am I am nothing now You're just like them The world is me And I'm the dark There is no life There is no spark You've murdered me Everything I am I am nothing now You're just like them The birds are bleeding upsidedown Their feathers congeal to form my crown And though I stand here, cruciform I am no martyr . . . I will not be reborn And honestly, I'm glad of it I can take it as a compliment And honestly, I'm glad of it I can take it as a compliment And honestly, I'm glad of it I can take it as a compliment They tied me to the chain link fence And beat me down--I've no defense I always knew I'd die in... (kill me now) I always knew I'd die in the snow (do it slow) I always knew I'd die in the snow (in the snow)

I want to tell you how I'm feeling. Believe me, it's not an easy thing to do. There lies some difficulty in explaining. I'll do what I can. I'll just sing it to you and it goes... Maybe meeting up is risky. For all we know, we're just a failure. But until that's clear, I'll be happy thinking that this is the hope that I've been waiting for forever and it sounds like...

Foundation 04:06
Now you know how I feel about you. Now you know how I feel about you. You say you're doing this to open up your eyes, explore your mind. But doing so, you're shut off from the world. You say you've found a solution to all of your life's problems, but you're ignoring the fact that this is not the life you know. Now you know how I feel about you. Now you know how I feel about you. You're putting on your foundation to match your tone. That's what you told me, but if it were a match, you wouldn't need it at all. You're saying that a mask is better than your pretty face. It's such a waste, but I'm not gonna try to change what you know. Now you know how I feel about you. Now you know how I feel about you. You're putting on your foundation to match your tone. That's what you told me, but if it were a match, you wouldn't need it at all. You're saying that a mask is better than your pretty face. It's such a waste, but I'm not gonna try to change what you know. (oh, oh, oh)
