FROZEN, OH HOW I WISH I WAS. THIS TIME TONIGHT COULDN'T BE ANY BETTER. FREEZING. OH, HOW UNCERTAIN I AM. THE PLACES, THE FACES, WHERE HAVE I GONE? I'VE BECOME THE CONCRETE THAT MY FEET WILL NEVER MEET. THIS STREET GOES ON FOREVER. SO TONIGHT MY SHEETS NEVER EXISTED. THESE MEMORIES OF LAUGHTER LATE AT NIGHT WON'T BE WASTED. NINE LIVES LIVE AS ONE IN THE WORST OF CITIES. NO ONE KNOWS OUR NAMES AND OUR POCKETS ARE A PITY. SO I'LL SCREAM EACH NIGHT UNTIL MY THROAT RUNS DRY. SO I'LL SCREAM UNTIL I WANNA DIE. AND IF IT WAS SO AND I DIED BY YOUR SIDE, AT THAT MOMENT I'D KNOW THAT I'D BE JUST FINE. NOT TOO MANY GET TO LIVE THEIR LIFE LIKE MINE.

Dramarama 02:49
IMAGES BURNT INTO MY BRAIN. SHARPER THAN KNIVES, THIS CAT-SCAN FEVER CONSUMES US ALL. THIS LUMP IN OUR THROAT GROWS BIGGER. SOONER OR LATER THIS CANCER BECOMES YOU. HATRED TOWARDS EACH OTHER AND A SOILED FRIENDSHIP DOWN THE DRAIN. YEARS LATER THE FEAR OF STARTING OVER HAS KILLED ME INSIDE. DON'T BOTHER. YOUR LIES BLEED TOGETHER. WHAT YOU SAID DOESN'T MATTER. RUMORS THAT FILL THIS ROOM. SAVE YOUR DRAMA FOR THE SOAPS. YOUR HEART BEATS WHEN THE BULLSHIT STARTS. THE STORIES GROW LIKE TUMORS INSIDE MY HEART. YOUR WORDS ARE A SICKNESS THAT THERE'S NO CURE FOR. THEY HIT THE EARS OF OTHERS AND SPREAD LIKE A VIRUS. HOW CAN I EVER START BELIEVING WHAT I AM HEARING? THE GERMS TAKE YOU OVER, THE WORDS BECOME YOUR SAVIOR. YOU CAN'T BREATHE WITHOUT IT. I'D LOVE TO HEAR YOU SPEAK ON YOUR OWN. I'D LOVE TO HEAR YOU SPEAK THE TRUTH.

ARCHED BACK AND A COUPLE OF SLIT WRISTS, HOW OFTEN CAN YOU TELL ME THAT I CAN'T LOVE YOU? JUST MAYBE I CAN. SOMEHOW I'LL BREAK THOSE ARMS AND SOMEDAY I'LL BREAK THOSE ARMS. WATCHING JESUS CHRIST EMERGE IN THE FORM OF A FIREARM, I SIT BACK AND RELAX. MY WIFE OF 40 YEARS I RAPED HER. HE BEGAN THAT DAY LIKE ANY OTHER, HOLDING HANDS WITH SAVORY LITTLE BEAUTIES. LET THEM KNOW THAT YOU LOVE THEM AND TELL THEM ALL YOU WANT IS TO BE CARED FOR. HER EYES WERE CALM AND HER HANDS WERE COLD.

Trophy Wives 02:14
SHAKE. SHAKE. SHAKE LOOSE THAT SINGLE GLEAM OF HOPE LEFT IN YOUR CHEST. GONE ARE THE DAYS OF SUNSHINE, I PROMISE. BREATH-TAKING PHOTOGRAPHS OF DREAMS LONG FORGOTTEN, YOUR SHIP HAS SANK. WRONG PLACE, WRONG TIME. SQUEAL ONCE MORE FOR PAPA. THIS IS NOT ABOUT MONEY, OH NO. THIS IS A SPORT. HAIR THAT SMELLS OF FEAR AND EYES THAT SCREAM SOLITUDE. COMPANIONSHIP IS JUST ANOTHER FUCKING CURSE. YOU CAN'T BUY FRIENDS LIKE THIS. BITE AND SCRATCH ALL YOU LIKE. TROPHIES OF BLACK BLUE AND RED.

Stolen Home 03:11
HOLD ON JUST A GODDAMN MINUTE, THIS COMMERCIAL IS YET TO BE OVER AND I CAN'T WAIT TO TRY THIS KNIFE OUT, I SERIOUSLY CAN'T WAIT. YELLOW PAINT WON'T COVER BLOODSTAINS, AND YELLOW PAINT WON'T COVER THESE RUMORS. THIS BLADE...YOUR NECK. ALL OF MY VALUES IN A LITTLE BASKET. I'VE STARTED OVER. SIT CLOSER, HONEY, I'VE TRIED MY BEST, I PROMISE. AND I CAN'T WAIT TO GET THESE CLOTHES OFF. I'M FUCKING TIRED. SWEET SKIN, CAN'T GET IT CLOSE ENOUGH TO ME, I WAN'T TO BE COVERED. RUNNING MY FINGERS STRAIGHT THROUGH HER HAIR, JUST LIKE MOTHERS, THIS IS MY NEW LIFE.

I FELL ASLEEP ON YOUR GUN AGAIN LAST NIGHT, IT WAS WARMER THAN BEFORE. MY EYES ARE BURNING. FOR EVERY SIGH I HEAR, I’LL ROLL OVER SO YOU CAN REACH FOR THE TRIGGER. IS IT AIMED AT MY HEAD? ARE WE MAKING ANY PROGRESS? WHY ARE WE IN BED TOGETHER? DO THAT ONE MORE TIME, RIGHT WHERE I THINK MY LEGS MIGHT CONNECT. IT GETS ANNOYING BUT I’LL BEAR WITH IT THIS TIME. I DON'T TALK TO EVERY GIRL LIKE THIS. I DON'T TALK. BABY, THESE THINGS FEEL GOOD. THESE THINGS FEEL SO GOOD. THIS BED ISN’T GETTING ANY BIGGER AND THESE SHEETS DON’T KEEP ME WARM AT NIGHT.

Bartleby 02:40
THE TEA KETTLE CALLED IT ARSON BUT I ASSURED HIM IT WAS ONLY TREASON. BOUGHT WITH A PASSION AND SOLD FOR LESS THAN A FORTUNE. THESE GLASS EYES ONLY BREAK IF YOU CATCH THEM. THIS ALL MUST END BETWEEN THE ROCKS AND THE SEA. THIS DRINK OF KINGS ONCE PASSED OVER THIS DECK. IT WAS ALL IN GOOD HUMOR, I SWEAR. I SWEAR. I SWEAR...
