Track Name: muted symphony
muted symphony
i love the way my music sounds
when the major flies and the minor falls down
and there’s no one else around but me

and my muted symphony
i love the way my music swings
ever building and depreciating
and there’s no one else who could love it like me

so i hold it in, hold it in
i keep it to myself, let it echo thru the walls
of my little, tiny shell
where no one else can hear it swell

muted symphony
i love the way my music sounds
dry in the middle and wet all around
like an island and its ocean, a rhythm and its motion

muted symphony
i love the way my music swings
from early mornin til late in the evenin
so afraid to be outstanding, afraid to be seen
Track Name: god moves at midnight
god moves at midnight
king of leisure

i'm talkn out loud, telln on myself
down on my knees
going straight to hell

god moves at midnight
at a strange angle to my bedside
king of leisure
hope that you get here in time
god moves at midnight
at a strange angle to my bedside
i'm a dreamer
taking the long way around g'bye

i pissed on a flower
and watched her die at my feet
i'm prayin to the lord
that he would forgive me

i'm trouble, and i can't be satisfied
(watch him 'round the garden)
i'm trouble and i can't be satisfied
Track Name: blood from a heart of stone
baby, i just want to know ur name

give it 2 me
the blood from ur heart of stone
let it break through the levy and drown me n
xtacy

if you could meet my needs
i won't have to leave u
and go and find a friend
who'll do what i want them 2

i've been ur slave
for as long as i've been ur friend
and u never caved-never bent
ur heart of stone
u never gave-needle n but no blood
from ur heart of stone

why are u afraid?
don't u think i'm a great lover?
i'll only make u feel better, babe

don't hold back
put the pillow to ur mouth and scream
it aint 2 much 2 ask. i see ur freak
a twinkle n the tall grass

tell ur story, baby
or we'll fill n the blanks
and say goodbye
without even so much as a thanks
Track Name: ur a monster, part 1 & 2
the snow is coming down
on our southern town
all the leaves have fallen
from green 2 gold 2 the ground
people want 2 know
where have u gone
the sunlight of our winter
the blood from our stone

i respond with rage whenever i hear ur name

ur a monster
hell is where u r
'til ur back n my arms again
the devil is who u r

if u come back 2night
i won't act surprised
i won't ask u questions
u won't have 2 lie
a love made out of paper
would b near
enough 2 the summer
of our banner years

art on the wall

my love is her shield
her forcefield
against the ways of mankind
off n the distance i c civilization
runnin' 4 dear life

i'll hunt u down like an animal-like an animal
hang ur head like art on the wall
heaven was made 4 little girls
this woman was made 4 my world

she's my ideal
woman revealed
she could fill an hourglass
with sex appeal
i c their mouths watering
with whatever comes 2 mind

love so good u want 2 save it-save it
Track Name: falls (violet)
another legend falls
no, it won’t hurt forever
one day you’ll make them sad with your own changes

give ‘em what they want and all they want is more
no mater what you say, it all falls short
you asked me to be here, so i’m here
but i had to get high just to stand by your side

while another young boy calls
a legend in the making
you give all your thoughts to the ones you can’t believe in

give ‘em what they want and all they want is more
i guess it’s hard to taste when i’m so close and i’m so warm
you asked me to come over and bring you back to life
while i’m dying on the inside

so, i’ll say what you wanna hear
but for me, there are no promises here

i’m standing under the falls
washing all but the secrets i can live with
i won’t wash them off, nor the kisses i dream you do give

give ‘em what they want and all they want is more
read between the lines and you’ll miss the point
you asked me to be here so i swallowed my pride
now, i’m violet on the inside

volcano full of fire
Track Name: hello, goodbye (trim)
keep runnin

u won't stay and u won't go
love shouldn't be so complicated
won't say yes, u won't say no
yellow lights u've contemplated

tell me when
when will you decide if it's u & i, together
u think that our
think our love is strong
can't keep hangn on forever

u don't laugh and u don't cry
love can't live without emotion
don't reveal and u don't hide
wearin ur disguise out n the open

keep runnin n & out of my life
Track Name: music is a world within itself
you know the lrics
Track Name: a time machine is my new g'friend (demo)
i found a reason for magic
quiet nights need to have it
now, i'm fresh as a daisy
ready for ur love to save me, again and again
the future was made for me and my new girlfriend

she came to me and brought the living
and now i'm back into the swing of things
the youth carry a sense of drifting
soaring, roaring like the 20's

time is a plaything when a time machine is ur new girlfriend

i found a reason for magic
that's where all the smiles live
now, i'm fresh as a baby
ready for your love to save me from the end
i paid all my late fees, no more rented entertainment
so glad ur stayin

the 21st century is 10 years old
mystery still lurks beyond the globe
we board the train, rubbing elbows
with withered beings from the fall of rome

time is a plaything when a time machine is ur new girlfriend

oooh, i was on a downward slope
with no one to control the speed of my roller coaster
love was cheaper than money
happiness came at the cost of being with u
an angel heard me yell
she put on her bells before she fell thru the gale
and brought me to my feet

we lie in perfect position
to witness the birth of the ocean
i'm warm and next to woman when it hits:
i'm ageless as emotion

time is a plaything when a time machine is ur new girlfriend
Track Name: next year
i've ben watchn them become lovers for quite sum time now
off in the darkness they go
to create a world of their own
seems like only y'day, we were all just friends

now, i regret my true intentions
i try to force a smile that's neither needed nor worthwhile
i watch from the sidelines w tears n my eyes
i turn to walk away. i'm torn but i wish them well

n the dark i'm feeln my way around
love is lost somewhere between friends
n the dark i'm feeln my way around
hope i find a girl like her next year

the ride to her place filled me up w wishes. she wanted to talk
she askd if i could keep a secret
she said her heart had another keeper
and i was to be left the broken dreamer

i've ben watchn them become closer than lovers
for quite sum time now
off n the darkness they go
to create a world of their own
like a child and his toy, i reluctantly share the both of them
Track Name: snm
i'm gamblin on ur love
i hope that lady luck is with me 2night
if i lose it all then i just might cry

i dial ur number
come on pick up
give me what i want

i want 2 eat my cake and have it
at night i chase ur sex and magic
it's a fantasy that could b tragic
at night i chase ur sex and magic

i'm betting on ur love
now i know y people become monks and nuns
it hurts 2 much when the other side has won

i want 2 hold ya
with the passion of
1,000 men or more
Track Name: (let it) soak (n)
(let it) Soak (n)

(chorus)
Dip your love life in my coffee, babe
And let it soak in
You know that you rock me, babe
Now, let it soak in

(verse)
We once were cool when we were new
We were seduced by breaking rules
We chased our youth through the bloom
And needed a fuse to lighten the mood

chorus

Let me take the pressure of ye
Before it soaks in
Temperature may be shocking
Your body’s frozen
Your kisses land softly, baby
Now, let me hold them

verse
chorus

Step into my office
The door is always open
Dip your love life in my coffee, baby
Let me be your boyfriend
