Track Name: World's Greatest Enabler
I’ll never be sober
I stand on the shoulders
of the sweetest savior
the greatest enabler
no wants or hunger
the arm I sleep under
keeps out the cold air
and shakes off the nightmares

Don’t talk or listen
or try to forgive him
it’s time to leave here
and take all you hold dear home

Have you never been outside?
I have never been outside

somewhere out there
like a blanket of warm air
the sweetest of neighbours
the greatest enabler is home
Track Name: I barely escaped with my sanity intact
Once there was a man outside my door
he knocked three times while standing there
I sat there staring at his face
sitting in my very comfortable chair
comfortable chair

I wondered if he could see inside my room
I worried that he might see my face
though I had turned off all the lights
Sitting in my very comfortable place

The man looked like an older kind of man
He had on a shirt and tie
He had a package in his arms
My blankets were warm as fresh apple pie

The man stared at his watch from time to time
He looked to be about 55
he cupped his hands around his eyes
and attempted to see if I was inside

I sat as motionless as a stone
I held my breath and clenched my fists
he will not win this war this day
with my blankets like the warm embrace of a kiss

the next 5 seconds were eternity
but he just turned around and walked away
I clutched my pillow against my cheek
and refused to move for the rest of the day
Track Name: A frightened rabbit let loose in a church basement
I know enough about heartache and shame
enough to fill a million cathedrals, to the ceiling
and I need hundred fucking hours and change
to find myself a fucking feeling that’s real
and I filled my guts full of hammers and nails
I got a stomach full of pain
I got something burning through my hand
I got a wire taste in my mouth
I got something burning through my hand
I got a sense to be alone I’m the intruder in my home
I got something burning through my hand
there is a scent of something true but it is not a part of you
I got something burning through my hand
are we all afraid to eat shit from time to time
are we all afraid to eat shit from time to time
oooooo
Track Name: The safe word is “Crimea”
You know I feel so sorry baby
I couldn’t hold you, I couldn’t calm you, I couldn’t kiss you, I couldn’t touch you, I couldn’t tell you to take me back

This is where I wonder, this is where I wonder what the hell I’m at

And I’m tied at both ends, I’m tied at both ends
with the rope in your hands with the rope in your hands behind my back

You know I feel so sorry baby
I want to find you, I want to see you, I want to smell you, I want to touch you, I want to take you from the back

and I’m tied from both ends and I’m tied from both ends
with the chain in your hand and a thin hack saw

and I’m gasping for air and I’m gasping for air
and I know you’re not there and I know you're not there to help me out
Track Name: One Bitter Tablet
one whistle
one meal
one bird
one star
one thistle
one sail
one word
one scar
one you
and everyone is for you

one missle
one signal
one vial
one jar
one fiddle
one riffle
one bible
one star
for you
and everyone is for you

one bottle
one cycle
one thorn
one car
one pedal
one shovel
one cymbal
one scar
one you
and everyone is for you

one lover
one summer
one hunter
one heart
one wheel
one bullet
one banner
one start
for you
and everybody’s for you
Track Name: I’ll learn how to steal
this feeling
doesn’t mean a thing
though it hurts so bad
it’s just a stupid song

I wasn’t wrong this time
but you were right
you were right to say goodbye

I don’t like to see you cry
but I’d watch it every day
if that’s enough to make you stay with me
and never go away
This old heart
doesn’t wanna beat
for anything but you

so here’s what I’ll do
I’ll drink poison
I’ll learn how to steal
and take those thoughts you have of me
the ones that made you leave
then you won’t leave
no
then you won’t leave me
then you won’t leave
And these feelings
Won't be bothering your mind
And you won't leave me
And I'll never leave you
I'll never even try
Track Name: Just keep dreaming your dreamy dreams little man
Reaching for the sun, we are reaching for the sun, we will always be together
Track Name: It’s common knowledge
it’s no secret at all
when you walk into the room
everyone can see can see you look good
you’re looking so good

and no one doubts for a second
as soon as you open your mouth
no one can question
how can you be so kind
how can you be so kind to me?

and it’s common knowledge
as soon as you look them in the eyes
and ask a single question
how can you be so wise
how can she be so smart
Track Name: The sun is a horrible thing
The ocean opened up it’s eyelids
and saw it’s secrets reflected in the sky
The forest stayed awake all evening
waiting for the morning to punch it in the eye
the snow is up to my thigh
I thought of a new way to die
I know you won’t regret what you receive
The coal is up to my knees
I thought of a new way to please
there’s no way you’re going to see what you believe
The mountain didn’t hear the siren
and through the fire continued in it’s sleep
The desert hates the sound of praying
It hates the sound of laughing it wants to drink in peace
The river isn’t going to call you
It isn’t going to hold you it wishes it could leave
The smoke is up to my eye
I thought of a new way to cry
I know you won’t regret what you receive
I can’t get off of my knees
I thought of a new way to please
there’s no way you’re going to see what you believe
Track Name: In the mood for blood
I'm in the mood for love
I'm in the mood for blood
