Track Name: Castaway
Tell us now how the lights aren’t broken
Well, I’m feeling sick and I’m feeling ill
I’m feeling ill

Tell us now how the love is spoken
Well, Im feeling sick and I’m feeling ill
I’m feeling ill

Well, I was Cast Away
I am Cast Away
I was Cast Away
I am a Cast Away

Call us out when our hope is broken
Well, I’m down and out and I’m feeling ill
I’m feeling ill

Steal our minds while our eyes aren’t focused
I’m full of rage and I’m feeling ill
I’m feeling ill

You say want your rights
But out there every night
With a pitcher pouring in

If you really want to fight
You should vote out all the slime
Everytime.. and not be Cast Away
Track Name: Breeder
Maybe I could say, “I don’t love you.”
Maybe I could say, “I don’t really care.”
Maybe I could say, “I don’t want you.”
Maybe I could, I know that I can’t.

Hold me down since last September, remember? Oh oh
I always wait till you came around my door
Hold my heart and ask “Forever?” Whatever.. Oh oh
Hold my love and say you’ll never.. Ill never

Maybe I’m ready for this lonely road to end
Maybe I’m ready for the brand new touch of a brand new friend
Baby, I know that you’ll never find a better man.
Black Widow, at my window, still looking again.

Maybe I could say, “We could hold on.”
Maybe I could say, “I’m here for the ride”
Maybe I could wish we were still strong.
Maybe I could, I know that I can’t.

I stuck around since last September, remember? Oh oh
I waited so long for you to call at my door.
Tear my heart, who needs forever? Whatever.. Oh oh
Keep your love and say you’ll never.. Ill never
Track Name: Deepest Oceans
I fell in love
I fell in love
I fell in love with your drug

I fell in love
I fell in love
I fell in love with your touch

Deepest Oceans, come between us
Keep me rowing on back to you

Deepest Oceans, come between us
Keep me rolling on back to you

I fell in love
I fell in love
I fell in love with your blood

I fell in love
I fell in love
I fell in love with your Son

Dear Lord, Please Forgive me
Dear Lord, Don’t forsake me
Dear Lord, you’ll see me through this
Dear Lord, I cannot chew on this

Dear Lord, save this pollution
Dear Lord, save this amusement
Dear Lord, please will you take me
Dear Lord, come on and break me down
Track Name: Incrowd Conspiracies
Deep thought in poetry is killing the masses
Hipsters and scenesters with big, stupid glasses
All hanging around with their big coffee cups
They all smoke their cigarettes and wear Converse chucks

So take off your Pea Coat
And let down your long hair
Lets get ready to learn

But you can keep your skinny jeans
Cause they sure do mean a lot to me
Lets get ready to learn

Cause you’ve hanging out at all those places
And you’re filling out so many spaces
Gah, Girl, you wear so many faces

I don’t want you like that, NO
I don’t need you like that, NO
I don’t love you like that, No No No No

You’re passive aggressive and you saved a whale
You couldn’t care less if you’re friends went to hell
For all that you know, well, you might go there too
Let’s forget this whole mess and go buy some Kavus

You drink Perrier, and quote lines from Rent
Screaming LA VIE BOHEME, as your money is spent
You smoke weed and grow seeds to open your mind
But Cracker Jack prizes were all you could find
Track Name: MoonCutter
When I don’t have nothing to say
Not that I don’t have nothing say
My tongue goes numb

When I don’t have nothing to think
Not that I don’t have nothing to think
My soul goes numb

I think about you
I think about you and I die

I think about you, baby
And how that monster made you cry

AND I SAY
I say it again, it goes:

Chorus
MoonCutter
Yeah. Well, you cut me down to size.
MoonCutter
Yeah. Well, you made me realize.
MoonCutter
Yeah. Well I know I must deny
MoonCutter
You bring me so low.

I don’t have nothing left
It seems like my time has gone

When I can’t find God
I read about Him; and I try

I think about it
I think about it all the time

I think about your hey day
I think about it and I slide

Well, I cant find home
And Im all alone
Cause Im trying so hard for the Rolling Stone

Well, I need a break
CAUSE my lifes no cake
Im blowing everything I ever made

Im never sure
Im always bored
I cant think straight cause Im always torn.

Well, you’ll never know
And Ill never learn
Mooncutter, cut me down again
Track Name: War!
You say you’ll take me
I don’t want your pity
I won’t play bench warmer for thee

You say you like me
So where was the party?
That I wasn’t invited to

You say you love me
Ha! You’ll never fool me
You’ll never be my friend

Well, we started a war and I’ve got to break it to you
Well, we started a war and I’ve got to take it to you
He said, She said, the bombs are flying. Oh, the guns are crying.
He said, She said, the captain shouts, “Oh, lets take ‘em out.”
Come on

I was running along,
And I was writing my songs,
And there you were just a singing along

Now it’s hitting my light
Just to keep reading signs
Let’s just lose track of time till the planets collide

Here’s to the Soviet sun
Cause the Empire won
Now everyone says that Siberia’s fun

You say you’ve lost your footing
Well, I won’t be held down pouting
Only losers lose their home

You say you’ve lost your light again
I say, it’s time to pick a fight again
My life is Gods, I don’t care to die

You say you’ll leave me dreaming now
Well, babe, you’ve got me scheming now
And you never were my friend

So maybe you don’t feel anything
Your voice is cracked from all the cigarettes
And maybe you just don’t get it

So maybe I will tell your mother
That you don’t know me like your brother
Caress your bottle to sleep
Track Name: Scared
I don’t want to go on wasting your time
And I’m getting kinda sick on Halls Cherry Lime
Coping with statements that I’m not your type
I’m living out on the edge of a dime

Ring the bell, hell I’m not shaking

Maybe I’m just scared, I don’t what to do or how to love
Maybe I’m just scared, I don’t know what to think, and I’m thinking of...
Every other guy that you could ever love, and you do love
Maybe I’m just scared to ever be with you

I don’t want to on wasting my life
Just sitting in fields and flying my kites
Pipe dreams and endless schemes don’t survive
Taking day by day and night by night

Life is pain, hell I’m not shaking

I’ve got your letter in my pocket
I don’t know what I’m going to do
Maybe I should hate myself and drop it
Maybe I should write one back to you
Track Name: Pieces
When I possess you, I have won
When I caress you, I am love

I think of all the pieces
How you brought them out
Just to show me your brokenhearted hole

You splash graffiti on the walls
Paint it red, you feel so small
You’ve run so far away from home

Please, wont you, Fall way
I'm praying, Fall away
(Fall away) I'm begging you now
(Fall away) You're fading out

Well every night you are alone
Uneasy statements get you stoned

I think of how you spent your recess
Tracking down all the pieces
And all you wanted was my love

You feel your life will never turn
So you just sit there and you burn
The piece of life that holds you back
Track Name: Addiction
While you were gone, I brushed my teeth
Shaved my head cause I couldn’t sleep
Went down to the Ocean where the water is cold
Fell right in cause I was smoking a bowl

I had to get high again today
Getting stoned is the usual way
I know the way I act is a little strange (so don’t throw me down, no o o)
I had to get high again today

While you were gone, I checked out some girls
Used my Silver tongue to topple the world
Went up to the mountain that holds my soul
Fell right off cause I was smoking a bowl

While you were gone, I hung out with my friends
Did the same old stuff in the same old sense
Went to the deal where nobody knows
Fell out my chair cause I was so damned stoned
Track Name: SilverTongue
My name is SilverTongue, and I enjoy it
They love to hear my flaming lies
They a need a fix, they near implore it
My job is chaos, I have won.

Maybe it’s wrong
But I’m tired of lying

Maybe it’s wrong
But I see no future

Maybe it’s wrong
But I feel like dying

Pull the Trigger

Her name is Eve, The Shining Light
I know she’s three sheets to the wind
She tempts the world to take a small bite
My finger’s getting itchy again

My name is SilverTongue
