Brittle 02:37
I can't hold you any closer your plastic box stealing my free touch your yellow skin jaundiced from the start your tiny hands your tiny beating heart you're a little bit brittle I can't see what's in store your plastic box, thin but I want more your yellow skin jaundiced from the start your little breath, your tiny beating heart you're a little bit brittle

Believe 04:18
Believe in me believe in me It was easy now you see it's a modest fantasy that I can be what I can be Believe in me believe in me I was close enough to the future my hands were nervous when I made that suture and now I'm bleeding out Never mind what I said what I said no I can't wait for when the answer's in photographs and you've got nobody nobody to wait for when it gets too cold outside to love me when it gets too cold outside to stop me Believe in me believe in me It was easy now you see it's a modest fantasy that I can be what I can be Believe in me believe in me I am closer now to the future still the time will come when I've got to shoot you and you'll be bleeding out Never mind what I said what I said no I can't wait for when the answer's in photographs and you've got nobody nobody to wait for when it gets too cold outside to love me when it gets too cold outside to stop me Believe in me

What's Up 04:17
What's up, I might've missed it time to find yourself so solipsistic need some help need some help to find the optimism inside your mind and I sing... Woo! What's up, I need some help to find can't avoid myself, I need to draw the line don't know anything that's gonna happen to ya inside my mind, and I sing... War is my best friend it's outta my hands we gotta respond to their demands for death I wait I am become my will is strong I have lived long I lived too long... What can I get I need to tread lightly just take a break you need to land softly with a hedonistic view abandon your humanity money and power make or break a Greek tragedy a soul song, it's a blood bath with the saw-tooth in your rib-cage in my mind there is no... What's up, I'm optimistic time to find myself so solipsistic need some help need no help to find you're already in that state of mind and I sing that war is... War is my best friend it's outta my hands we gotta respond to their demands for death I wait I am become my will is strong I have lived long I lived too long...

Equual 03:28
So what relation is it that you are to me again cos last time that I checked it wasn't mother it was friend so why you have do this when I'm rushing on my run why'd you have do this we used to have some fun So what relation is it that you are to me again last time I checked it wasn't lover it was friend so why you have do this when I'm rushing on my run why'd you have do this we used to have some fun And all these words tie you to me never the same boat we're just sharing sea So what relation is it that you are to me again cos you said we were family but I don't think we spend that much time together we're just in the same room nothing left to speak of how do we stay in tune And all these words tie you to me never the same boat we're just sharing sea

What is This 04:52
What is this scene laid out in front of me I'm caught by the beast no memory of the feast what is this scene laid out in front of me? Well I'm lost I've been lost I am lost... Now I'm lost I am lost I am lost... What is this scene laid out in front of me There must be many the greater end of being what is this scene laid out in front me? Now I'm caught I was lost but I've been taught I was lost but now I'm found and I'm caught...

Head on Fire 04:12
What would you get if your head was on fire my feelings around, your darkest desire my head is on hold my feelings made of when everything stops you can feel just what I have got And my head is on fire now you're my darkest desire babe would you think yourself harder you think you can have deep and rolling is what I got

Illumination 06:35
With the greatest regret now I can't even see ya how can I defeat ya And I got lots of memories but they're all from my past You look right through me remember when you knew me What is this life tonight and heaven's lost it's shine it ain't so bright tonight I'm alright I need you here with me tonight This drive is the longest I didn't wanna make it I couldn't take it To kiss you on the forehead finally say goodbye You look so small you used to stand so tall What is this life tonight and heaven's lost it's shine it ain't so bright tonight I'm alright I need you here with me tonight she sings as angels float her away on golden wings she sings and sings

Watershed 09:52
When this world you thought you knew says goodbye try to hold, try to cling onto memories of your life And the death of your mind has already started try to hold onto what you have cos it's already gone So mold the world in your image of what you have become you motivate my spirit Resist our progress in your visage the change has to come you motivate my spirit So mold the world in your image of what you have become you hold back my spirit This is your watershed this is your shining stance against the wall this is your watershed this is your will to wait and watch it fall This is your watershed this is your chance to leave and lose it all this is your watershed this is your final dance your last call
