Track Name: The Parallel
Keep your eyes open wide for the parallel of your own self
Keep your eyes open wide for the parallel of your own self
Keep your eyes open wide for the parallel

And she said that nothing's changed
In the basement you will stay
And one day she passed away
Gone the next day

Keep your eyes open wide for the parallel of your own self
Keep your eyes open wide for the parallel of your own self

I don't forgive you
Maybe I should
I can't trust you
Maybe I could...

Just let it go
Let it go...

And one day you will know
What its like to be free like them

Keep your eyes open wide for the parallel of your own self
Of your own self
Of your own self
Its out there, out there
You can find it, find it
Find him, Find her
find him, find her

No one else will for you
No one else can do it for you...

Just look out for the parallel
Of your own self
Track Name: Check in the Mail
Write back tomorrow
See if I care
Cuz the check's in the mail
And they're selling off the house that I'll never see again

Yellow two story house
If you can't forget it, why don't you run?

Whose fault is it for this?
Who can I blame anymore?

I don't wanna share this pain with anyone
But if you're asking then I don't mind
You can take all that its worth
See if its any better for you

In the yellow two story house I used to live in...
Track Name: Transcend (When I Am Free)
(none)
Track Name: Grayscale
Say it enough
Pretend that they won't hurt you
No one really understands that it would be this way

No one ever knows
See if you can try to
Dig me out of here, I am stuck, I do not know what to do

Can you save him?
Can you save me?

Which one will you choose?

And you never will be missed

Took a ride on the grayscale
Can't find my way off
Took a ride on the grayscale

Just to be sure
Keep him in your pocket
Make sure he never escapes or eats or drinks anything

Maybe one day
He will break away and
You will never see the troubles that you brought upon him

He won't forgive you
He can't forgive you
Maybe he can, maybe he can, I dunno, I'm not him
But then again, maybe I am...

Cuz I took a ride on the grayscale
Can't find my way off
And I saw myself
And I can't find my way off

Took a ride on the grayscale
Took a ride on the grayscale
And I'll never be lost again
Never be lost again...
Track Name: Therapy #1
(spoken word)
Track Name: Share the Sadness Around
And if you share my sadness around
I hope you don't feel it
I hope I don't bring you down

I don't want you to feel it
Don't wanna bother you...

Can't be any worse
Can't be any worse without...

Something to hold onto...

And when you share my sadness around...
be sure to give it back when you're done...
Track Name: Stars Die (Cover)
The moon shook and curled up like gentle fire
The ocean glazed and melted wire
Voices buzzed in spiral eyes
Stars dived in blinding skies

Stars die. Blinding skies.

Tree cracked and mountain cried
Bridges broke, window sighed
Cells grew up and rivers burst
Sound obscured and sense reversed

Idle mind and severed soul
Silent nerves and begging bowl
Shallow haze to blast a way
Hyper sleep to end the day
Track Name: Rotten Teeth
Will you pull my rotten teeth?
Sit there and watch me bleed
Will you make fun of me?
Can I come back from this
And be free?

Do what you want and don't let them go away
Strap em down, don't let them escape
Strap em down and make them breathe in
Cuz I won't stop you

And put the needle in slow...

Wait until they can't feel anything anymore
And then pull their rotten teeth

Break apart, hear them cry in the street
And follow through

Break em again and you'll know what you get and you know...
Strap the mask on and breathe real deep
And you know you'll never feel again
Don't ever know
Don't let go
Pull your rotten teeth

Swallow up eternity...
Track Name: Therapy #2
(spoken word)
Track Name: Don't Call Me Up There
Hey there, you got your degree
And hey there, you're better than me
And hey there, was it worth it?
And hey there, by the end you don't know shit

Now now, don't call me up there
I don't wanna know what's going on up there

Cuz for all I know, it can't be good

Cuz when the bridges break, when you shout your way
Its all the same

How many times will you claim you're right?
How many times will they know?

You think you're smarter
You think you're wiser
But are you really learning anything?

What do really need to learn?
Collapsing in on ourselves
What could we try to prove?
What could we try to do?

I don't wanna sleep in
I don't wanna try
But I need to
Or otherwise
I'll be stuck here, in the same place

Don't ever think there's something right
Cuz you don't know them
When you talk, you don't look in their eyes
So you can't see what's going on
But I can, I can
Least I tell myself that
For all I know, its just the same for me...

(Spooky sounds)
Track Name: New Faces
New faces
New places
I don't know if I will ever get used to it
Do I even have a chance?

New places
Stop dragging me around
and keep me here

I crack underneath the pressure
Don't wanna move anything
But it isn't my choice

Go on and drag me out...
Kill all your kids and bury them 6 feet under
Bury your kids six feet under
Bury your kids six feet under
Who cares, who gives a shit?
Just kill your kids and bury them 6 feet under
Track Name: When You Sink, They'll Know
(Spooky sounds and incomprehensible piano)
Track Name: Therapy #3
(spoken word)
Track Name: I Forgive You
If we had departed
And left empty hearted
Then what would our children say?

If I had been buried
And never been married
As light of hope fades away

The memory will linger
But I can't hold it against you

And out of the basement
Life just adjusted
Killed all the demons at bay

I sated my sadness
It gave way to kindness
And I'm still here to this day

The memory will linger
But I can't hold it against her forever...
