Track Name: Cindi
So hot
The metal at your hips is glowing
Careful your true colors are showing
The hell you left behind,
Is it yours, or is it mine?
You get no points for bad behavior
But this gutter suits me fine

Bring me home

Hell of a way to make a living
Tossing and turning every night
There’s gotta be more than this
Than battered walls and bleeding fists
Just cuz you can’t win
Doesn’t mean that you can’t fight

Until the end of the world
You beat me senseless in the street
I was kicking against the pricks
I got people I wanna meet
And everything went wrong
And everything went red
I got your hand inside my hand
And that voice inside my head

I said yeah
Yeah
Yeah
Track Name: Centipede
Fragile yet agile, I watch you skitter
Every bitter note every broken tone
You left a stain the size of Manila
You didn’t notice ‘till the plane back home

No well too deep
That you can’t dig that hole
Take these neon dreams

I watched you crawl across the ceiling
A sweating shadow with a soul
The spirit’s hungry and it’s willing
But the flesh won't leave it well alone

No well too deep
That you can’t dig that hole
Take these neon dreams

You see that humble caterpillar
Reveals herself a centipede
You watch that last step, it’s a killer
You just won't notice until you start to bleed

No well too deep
That you can’t dig that hole
Take these neon dreams
Track Name: Die Like Dogs
I’m afraid
Just enough to bare my teeth
You got that rage
Days planning my defeat
It’s not about the way you walk
It’s the fine, fine line between between a buzzard and hawk
You take me down to place
Where the wolves...

You got that way
Of dropping me to my knees
Wanna play?
Top down, chin up, don’t let them see your disease
You fake it just to make it ‘till the wheels come off
Crying so hard, they say you gone soft
You take me down to place
Where we all...

DIE LIKE DOGS

Clear the room!
You know it didn’t have to go down this way
Oh I know!
It’s the smile that gives it away
Poor put-upon girl, poor little rich boy
Thinking you’re a player with a new set of toys
Take me down to that place
Where we all...
Track Name: Moonlight
It’s that New England cold that rattles your bones
I don’t care if you love me, I just can’t be alone
You chose me to suffer, I chose to get stoned
I crack in the moonlight,
A witness, a witness

It’s the psychopomp whisper
The garden of death
The dreams of distortion
Every night in your bed
The circuits keep humming
The lights growing red
The welcome distraction
From the ringing, the ringing

I’m calling on the omniphone
Calling but you’re not home

Well you think you’re hot shit
When you busted my lip?
You wanna transform?
Try to be dead for a bit
You go pale as a ghost
You ride the moon like a witch
You got a mean sense of humor
Keep laughing, keep laughing

Nowhere to hide
That tired refrain
I’m not trying to be stubborn
I’m just trying to stay sane
You kicked me so hard
I blacked out from the pain
I woke in the moonlight
But I ain’t the same

I’m calling on the omniphone
Calling but you’re not home
Track Name: B.D.F.
I’m nostalgic for a hangover
It don’t have to feel good, it just has to feel earned

I hate
B.D.F.

You give me a headache like a bulldozer
It don’t need to feel good, it just has to feel earned
Bob and Grant sing “dű you remember?”
I didn’t know what to say,
I didn’t know what to say

I hate
B.D.F.
Track Name: Sanctuary City
King coward and the queen of thieves
Robbed us blind, stole the keys
Took my face, took my name
Left me guessing about the way

Well I never heard of a getaway
But if I don’t survive, then this place wasn’t safe
Well the lines were tapped and the wires got crossed
And the heat, and the heat, and the heat was on

Well I found you on the casting couch
I wasn’t looking for love, just wanna find a way out
Out of my skin, well the boys gotta swing
Just give me a box under my feet

Another terror, eternal, another relief
You got the widest eyes that I ever seen
You got the beauty and brains and the heart of a beast
Well you know you gotta smile if you wanna succeed

Well who’s gonna shelter me?
When it’s there for the world to see?
Well who’s gonna shelter me?
From the, from the consequences?

It’s a cold night, a cold night, a cold night
(in sanctuary city)
Track Name: Shake
Oo, you got a lotta nerve
You say I’m worth nothing, it’s what I deserve?
Well I’d rather be a lion laying in wait
Than a lamb laying under the knife

You think you bought a place in my bed?
Just 'cause you smoked the brains from your head
Just ‘cause you want it, just ‘cause you want it
Want it tonight

SHAKE

You neon ugly machine
A little bit faded, a little unclean
But I’d rather be a plot, forget me not
A line in the sand for what you’ve got

You think you got it down by your feet
Looking for something mean and elite
Well I know that you want it, know that you want it
Want it from me

SHAKE

It’s a dry deserted place
Looking for a pretty face
Ready for the malice
Ready to be replaced
Track Name: Reckless & Ready
Never thought I’d hold a gun,
Now it's in my hands
Thought it’d feel like rolling thunder
Hot death on my command
Instead it feels like acid rain
Falling on us all the same
Calling the reckless and ready
By their names

I didn’t know a good night’s sleep
'till I went straight
Slept in bathtubs and on balconies
Anywhere I was out of the rain
No one to point the finger
All power, no restraint
I knew the reckless and ready
By their names

Oh,
Will someone just let me in?
Oh,
You got off easy
When they told you to hit the floor
You were the first one out that door
Now you can’t stop running anymore

I didn’t fight the rising tide
‘till i got made
Listless in my luxury
I didn’t see a reason to stay
I felt just like a vampire
Thirsty for the light of day
Calling the reckless and ready
By their names

Oh,
Will someone just let me in?
Oh,
You got off easy
When they told you to hit the floor
You were the first one out that door
Now you can’t stop running anymore

I called out all the cowards in this place
I woke up hours later,
Dried blood all on my face
I dreamed I was a bullfighter
But you were there in my way
Saying be reckless, but be ready
All the same
