Track Name: The Scorn
I tried to make things up to you in the morning sun
But you turned your pretty little nose up at the plate I made
So I called your mom up and I asked her what the hell should I do
She said buy the most vibrant bouquet you have ever seen

But it won't bring her home anytime soon
Cause Son, you've never seen scorn like that woman's scorn

and I cried as I stared up at that beautiful pale blue moon
The backlight of your photos always has an imperfect hue
And I'll write the most romantic love song just for you
And I called even though I knew it was much too soon
Track Name: Habit
They said "you're beautiful, and you can do anything"
You took it way to far- you think the road is paved and smooth

Cause you're super high maintenance
and I wish you luck with your shit
Some say that you're beautiful
but you're a habit I've gotta quit

Yeah, I'll open the door and give you everything
So sorry I missed your call, I just need a break

Cause you're super high maintenance
and I wish you luck with your shit
I feel like we've been here before
Cause you're a habit I've gotta quit

Oh I'm gonna close that door and face these elements on my own
Track Name: Broken Pieces
A lone wolf in the night
Coming in and out with the tide
He was the arrow to her bow, he was the needle to her thigh
and there was friction when she survived

A hospital bed in cold light
that scent it never left his mind
He made the call to save her life, but it cost her all her might
and she's still a dancer in his mind

All these broken pieces that you just can't put back together again
Are you so self-righteous that you just can't ask for the help of a friend?

She lost the sweet with doctors saw
She loves her man, but she screens his calls
"He was the one that took my everything, my right to die with dignity
and I hold it over him when I fall"

Oh all these broken pieces that you just can't put back together again
Are you so self-righteous that you just can't ask for the help of a friend?
Track Name: Be My
Be my clever distraction and I’ll be your wounded man
Be my fatal attraction and I’ll live as long as I can
Be my binding chains, and I’ll be your beast to train
If you take me back in, I’ll be home again

She’s my downhill ride when the lights they all went red
I go to war for her but I would end up dead
She’s inside my brain and I know I’ll never think the same
and if she takes me back in- well I’ll be home again

Cause I needed you, and I feel you
My heart’s still beating for you

I need my good luck charm, but she just can’t change my fate
I’m constantly worrying on a day to day basis
She knows I know that I’m getting close to her heart
And I hope when the curtains open I can do my part

Cause I needed you, and I feel you

My heart’s still beating for you
Track Name: Glad You Came
See a tree in constant drought- be the water
A broken leg in the regal halls- be the cane
and I am going crazy as the sun burns hotter
And we decend into darkness, she brings the rain

So glad you came

A single boy on a friday night- lamb to the slaughter
His friends can’t help but get him high and he’s going to waste
She slides down that steel pipe- that’s someone’s daughter
She cries herself to sleep at night, but she feels the fame

So glad you came

I’m so tired of it, and I’m still wired a bit
Cause I came all this way to see you drown

She tears away at her skin as the itch burns stronger
All she needs is just one more fix, but she’s caving in
Her friends are helpless on standby, but they still call her
She cries herself to sleep at night as she feels the rain

So glad you came
Track Name: Highest Bidder
Your heart's on sale to the highest bidder
It sure makes you cold, it sure makes you bitter
I showed you my cards but I got burned
That’s a war I lost but a lesson I learned

No I can’t deny it- that I feel the way I do
I can’t just hide it, when I hear that song I fall in love with the groove

When baby moved out she took all my things
She even took my favourite record by Diamond Rings
My comics and clothing strewn about the floor
That little girl she took my heart and she came back for more

No I can’t deny it- that I feel the way I do
I can’t just hide it, when I hear that song I fall in love with the groove
Track Name: Sunset
Your sunset coloured hair makes me smile whenever you come by
I don’t know why you come in here, but I like the way you carry yourself

I don’t even know your name, maybe I’ll see you later
I’m not playing any games- you and I should have dinner sometime soon

If it’s thai food that you like, I know this great place around the corner
But if somewhere’s on your mind, you can lead and I will follow

I don’t even know your name, maybe I’ll see you later
If I only had my way, I’d see more of your sunset flavour

Your sunset flavour
Track Name: Vintage Feel
She’s new age fun with a vintage feel
She’s looking for parts to re-invent the wheel
Got good taste in music and sex appeal
You gotta ask her out- tell her how you feel

The days are long and I am uninspired
I constantly hope my creativity won’t tire
She found a way to get her face stuck inside my head
My heart was frozen so long ago, and I regret it

Can you save a frozen heart

She’s new age fun with a vintage feel
She’s looking for parts to re-invent the wheel
Got good taste in music and sex appeal
You gotta ask her out- tell her how you feel

The dating goes on but I know that she’ll get tired
I wanna be able to respark our fire
I found a way to screw things up even worse than before
But she will stay and tell me that she loves me even more

Can you save a frozen heart
Track Name: Compassion
I am not an evil man, but I sometimes like to kidnap little creatures
Take them all far back in time and watch them fight to death from the bleachers

I don’t have a reason to show compassion
I am a lord of time, and I’m on a mission

I started such an evil pact, where I twist and contort the words of your leaders
I’ll take them off the firing line and watch them fight to death from the bleachers

I don’t have a reason to show compassion
I am a lord of time, and I’m on a mission
I’ll never be tried for treason, cause I distort the words

I am corporate media, I am the deep pockets of all the judges
You thought justice was a just cause
cause you weren’t fighting for you
you were fighting for the future
But I’ve been there and back so many times
that a lost cause comes in the form of a biased teacher

I don’t have a reason to show compassion
I am a lord of time, and I’m on a mission
I’ll never be tried for treason, cause I distort the words
Track Name: Found Her Lost
found her lost by the river side
The water curled as she made up her mind
Should she stay with a love-less thug
or dive right in and fill up her lungs

She told me to stop
“Don’t come any closer.
The man who you sent you is an evil bastard.
He kidnaps kids, and does twisted things.
He threatens my life on a daily basis.”

“That’s why I’m out here in the rain,
cause I can’t go back there again.”

I said “Why did you marry such an evil man?”
She said “He wasn’t like that when we first began.
He was kind of sweet, with that look in his eyes.
But my ‘white knight’ he kind of froze inside.
I lost him slow, like the sunset skies.
He tortured himself from Jekyll to Hyde.”

“That’s why I’m out here in the rain,
cause I can’t go back there again.”

I thought to myself, “Well she may be right.
But a bounty hunter should keep his eyes on the prize.”
“I’m powerless to save you now-
You might not die by his hands, but you’ll surely drown.
Come with me, if you wanna live.
I’ll take you far away- far away from him.”

That’s why we’re out here in the rain
Cause we can’t go back there again
