Track Name: Scratch
Scratch

You are well aware we're waiting
You are well aware there's something wrong.
You're making up for something...

One day I'm gonna move away
One day I'm gonna go and leave it behind
And make a lot of money.

The fire in your heart is out now
But you'll never know 'til it's too late
You're making up for something

I can't look

Wait.
I don't think I waited too long
Maybe if my price changes I'll go.
Wait.
I don't think I waited too long
Maybe if my price changes I'll go
You could see me and hear my swan song
Take my hand, it's stronger than I be
Roaming around so I can hold my head strong.

The fire in your heart is out now
But you'll never know 'til it's too late
Making up for something
The timing isn't all the great and..
Suddenly it's more than I can bare
Making up for something

Wait.
I don't think I waited too long
Maybe if my price changes I'll go.
Wait.
I don't think I waited too long
Maybe if my price changes I'll go
You could see me and hear my swan song
Take my hand, it's stronger than I be
Roaming around so I can hold my head strong.
Track Name: Bed Spins
Bed Spins

She'll close her mouth and nothing's said
The world is spinning 'round my bed
Falling backwards, time is stuck
They moved the goal post, just my luck

Violated
The city moans
Violated
Let it go

She lies to me and lies awake
Watch the backs of camel's break
Daylight floods and hits my eyes
Shotgun sounds, the children's smiles
She calls and calls and eyes set sail
Broken dreams among her tails
Burning candles at both ends stoned
God damn woman, should've stayed home

Violated
The city moans
Violated
Let it go

I never needed it
I never needed it
I never needed any of it
I never needed it
I never needed it
I never needed any of this

Let it out

She calls and calls and eyes set sail
Broken dreams among her tails
Burning candles at both ends stoned
God damn woman, should've stayed home

Violated
The city moans
Violated
Let it go
Track Name: Snake in the Grass
Snake in the Grass

Woe is me
I am never gonna work for free
Not for you again my heart doesn't bleed.
I'm busy working while you're cruisin' blasting Biggie
Greedy little piggy

Look at your whip so cool (so cool)
Wishin' I was you
Built a palace up in solitude
You're kinda like the bros at John and Richmond
Girl in shotgun bitching on and...

I will take it all from you
I will take it all,
It never bothered me

The thunder has passed
You know I needed you but how could I ask
The sky is falling and it ain't gonna last
The truth is hiding like a snake in the grass
Watch it slither past

Look at your style, so fly (so fly)
It's hard not to look
A carbon copy, you could write the book
The joint was cranked so loud
You couldn't hear the storm that's...
Raging up inside of me

I will take it all from you
I will take it all,
It never bothered me

The thunder has passed
You know I needed you but how could I ask
The sky is falling and it ain't gonna last
The truth is hiding like a snake in the grass
Watch it slither past

There's a great divide
From where I am to where I can't decide
If you gave a little, I'd let it slide
If you did I know I said I'd make it better
Then again I said a lot of things

I'll take my lights down
Shoot the gift, I've had it all but a melt down
Grab the fish and flip my desk like a sad clown
And in time you will see when the bomb drops
I would never call the cops

The thunder has passed
You know I needed you but how could I ask
The sky is falling and it ain't gonna last
The truth is hiding like a snake in the grass
Watch it slither past
Track Name: Fame
Fame

You are the last one to walk away
You are the silence in my everyday
The separation never seems to smile
The situation leaves you in denial

It's just the same
Not concerned about the fame
You give an inch and ...

Run and tear your family wild
When history's comin' back in style
Hurry up and run it through
Gonna live forever if I get it together

Just the same
Not concerned about the fame
You're so cliche I am in pain
I'm not concerned about the fame
The fame...

Laughing like the 4th of July
When kingdom come has come on by
Hurry up and run it through
Man, I know you wanna...
smell the marijuana

All the same
Not concerned about the fame
You're so cliche I am in pain
Not concerned about the fame
The fame...

Running out of reasons why
This is the fastest that I've ever died
Hurry up and run it through
Gonna live forever, if I get it together

Just the same
Not concerned about the fame
You're so cliche I am in pain
I'm not concerned about the fame
The fame...
Track Name: Control
Control

Twisting in me, how did it start
So unaware, falling apart
Sign of the times, drawing the line
Waiting to feel, hoping I'll find
Waiting outside, waiting alone
Clutching my pride, denial of being alone

Losing control, fall on my feet
Eager to please, eager to speak
Try to fit in, playing the part
Hoping I'll be, same as they are
Sleeping through days, pounding of time
Ticking away, patience my crime
Living outside, living alone
Never a fear, never of being alone

Ocean of ghosts, time in the air
Wade in the tide, they won't despair
Cynical drifts, paying no doubt
We never learn, crash and we're out
Close to the clear, a moment I had
Is it supposed, supposed to bleed this bad

Wisdom of old, taking the odds
Light up the dark, they won't applaud
talking of talk, spinning the wheels
Something I said, nothing to feel
Blame it on God, blame it on me
Blame it on children, too young to speak
I have no ties, I can not stay
The winds of time, are blowing me away
