---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I've got the chills, the execution of my skill
wont let me make it, I don't want to make it
I'll shoot the breeze with people who have no relation
rather thatn my family


We'll take them home introduce them to the couch, we'll rip the leather
I've never met such a cunning fool, who is so quick on the trigger

Yahhay!
I thought I told you
Yahhay!
I said I thought I told you

Eat my self-esteem baby eat it while I fill it up (yeah)
Keep my steem low keep my slow I don't want it up

All you conundrum pretenders think you're so original
because you can play on the offbeat
but you're all bio-engineers on the radio
because all you do is copy

Yahhay!
I thought I told you

Eat my self-esteem baby eat it while I fill it up (yeah)
Keep my steem low keep my slow I don't want it up
((You take away the peace-of-mind that I know
You calculate with tired eyes how many busses to take home))

I know I conspire with criminals
contentious, I'm cynical, I'm pure
I know that I'm hypocritical
I like it shaken, but I take it stirred

I know I conspire with criminals
contentious, I'm cynical, I'm pure
I know that I'm hypocritical
I like it shaken, but I take it stirred

And you expload in two, expload in two!
And you expload in two, expload in two!

Eat my self-esteem baby eat it while I fill it up (yeah)
Keep my steem low keep my slow I don't want it up

Eat my self-esteem baby eat it while I fill it up (yeah)
Keep my seem sewn keep me sewn while I cut it up
((You take away the peace-of-mind that I know
You calculate with tired eyes how many busses to take home))

You take away the peace-of-mind that I know!
Track Name: Hateful Saints
Well lately I've been thinking about all the ways to tame you
but baby it would take me all my money just to pay you
and maybe getting high would kind-of seem like something I would do
to sweeten up the deal before your "bitter" knocks me down a few

Saints, call me a Saint
I am the hateful kind
the kind to dig your grave

Now my mind is in shambles
another wake in the glass lake
and I'm rambling like an old man
and I can't stand so I'll wander

Predictable but tangible to pump and break the pedal
Marking twenty-one to thirty for a fix of something little
My eyes are motion capture but my fingers like to fiddle
It'll take a day or two before they meet back in the middle

My currency is messy I've been sticking to the grind
There's not a biologic cure in pharmaceutical design
I've been looking for a murder with my 20 inch line
so I can sneak around the corner and kill your time (Like a)

Saint, Call me a Saint
I am the hateful kind
the kind to dig your grave

Now my mind is in shambles
another wake in the glass lake
and I'm rambling like an old man
and I can't stand so I'll wander

You've got the sunset alibi with money in your pocket
take a first class ride theres no better way to rock it
said to meet you pool-side, fusion made me drop it
next to you theres a fine line, I'm trying not to cross it - going

La da da La daah

Now my mind is in shambles
another wake in the glass lake
and I'm rambling like an old man
and I can't stand so I'll wander
Track Name: Addicted to this Monster
*1st Verse*
I'm addicted to these trends that aren't prescribed to me and I wish they were. I wish they were
Because they make me feel creative while I'm falling asleep When there's still time to kill. There's still things sewn to reap.

*Pre-Chorus*
I know, I know... it's not healthy for me but what's healthy for me anyway I know, I know...but it's way to good to quit

*Chorus*
When Every single day I'm feeling no motivation what am I to do? --Stay Awake
When every single day I feel too tired to -- Stay Awake

*2nd Verse*
I'm addicted to the poison in these bottles I have
They make me feel at ease. They make me feel at ease.
But the collection of the empties seem to line my wall
They remind me that I need to buy some more


*Pre-Chorus*
I know, I know... it's not healthy for me but what's healthy for me anyway I know, I know...but it's way to good to quit

*Chorus*
When Every single day I'm feeling no motivation what am I to do? --Stay Awake
When every single day I feel too tired to -- Stay Awake

*Outro*
Keep it under lock and key or free me. Tell me what's the point of living without something to leave.
Track Name: Dear Older Brother
Dear, Older Brother
we've been playing in the sun
and though you're gone it still feels cold outside
We've piled the leaves up from the grass that turned from green to golden brown
theres' no more cumulus clouds in sight

Dear older brother
why don't you just come home
we've been waiting since we kicked you out
We never knew that it would hit you so hard
mom's been crying since you decided to leave town

I'm not making any promises (cause)
Life is a whole lot harder than you
made it out to be and
I'm not taking any books from your room
but if I do
but if I do
I'll give them back to you I swear

Yeah I swear, I swear,
I swear on my life that this is not the end

Dear older sister don't you worry, please dont cry
he had the choice to live or die and he made his
and don't feel threatened when we talk to you at night
to calm you down and dry those glossy brown eyes

Maybe we made the wrong choice, maybe we don't understand, maybe we went too far
Maybe we're the ones who should leave the Earth
It doesn't seem like we've done good for it so far

I'm not making any promises (cause)
The rain cloud above my head has
started a hurricane
and I'm not sweating any rain for you
but if I do
but if I do

You keep me wondering why
why-oh-why
did you think I tried to save you we both know
you tried to save me so come home
just come home
You know I tried to love you
you know we'll always love you yes we will

Oh it's still cold outside

We've piled the leaves up to the sky
I tried to reach you there again
so I could feel the warmth of your hand

Ooohh ohh Woahh
Ohh woah
Ohh woah
