Track Name: Kernwood
I'm not at all surprised that the rising of these tides will swallow me whole, I accept it with my heart. One day this pain will stop... it's just a matter of why, and when.

If you only knew how close the ledge is but I stay true (baby, I stay true) and accept no help, this is how it goes. I smile as I sink ---

what else did you think?

I'm used to the fact I'll eventually collapse and it's all my fault (all my fault). All I ask is that you hold my hand just one... last... time.

(now let go)
Track Name: Seen/Unseen
I wish I knew what I was so afraid of...
I'd pinpoint it and destroy it.

I wish that I could wake up...
and not wish badly that I didn't.

I wanna get smaller, and smaller, and smaller, and smaller ---
No one would see me at all.

(But I wanna be seen)

(The sweet irony)

I'd sleep for an eternity, I'd dream about love...
and less about accidents.
Track Name: A Simple System with Complex Details
I told you I went down.
You said you'd do it too.
I told you I went down.
I thought you knew it.

I said so many things.
I had so many dreams.
I told you I went down.
I know I blew it.

I just wanted to go.
and still, you'd stop me too.
I told you I want out.
Live free without me.
Track Name: Do It For Him
Didn't daddy tell you this world has gone to shit?

(I used to believe in god and superman)
-
I look up; I see people -- and I get scared.
I look up; I see people.
I look up; I see no one -- and I get scared.
I look up; I see no one.
-
The end is nigh and I'm running on fumes.

(I'm not at all like the boy you once knew)
-
I wake up; I see people -- and I get scared.
I wake up; I see people.
I wake up; I see no one -- and I get scared.
I wake up; I see no one.

a different job
a different time
a different place
let go

I've loved
I've lost
I've learned
let (go over there
while I ruin my whole life
you are the light
and I am the sad scared dog)

I still
have those
let go
move on

I won't
deny
let go
(move on with your life
and I'll move on with my own
you are the light
and I am the sad scared dog)
