Track Name: The Body
I found your body by the shore when no one claimed you
I dragged you into town to find someone to name you.

Lock me up and tear it out—
The love we grew was strangled.
Lock me up but tear them out—
The weeds have grown entangled with anything left.

This disease is killing me, and I think it kills you too.
I never thought I’d hear the things I heard from you

Lock you up and tear it out—
The love we grew grows hateful.
Lock you up and tear it out—
Now it seems so shameful.

I cannot speak to the dead anymore.
No, I cannot speak to the dead anymore.

They found my body by the shore when no one claimed me,
They dragged me into town to find the one who shamed me.

Lock me up and tear it out—
The love we grew you strangled.
Lock me up but tear them out—
The weeds have grown entangled with anything left.

Lock me up and tear it out—
The love I grew was wasted.
Lock me up and tear it out—
The love I grew is shameful.
Track Name: Blue
You are a gemstone in my thighbone,
a lonely moon on a distant planet.
You wax and wane more than I am used to,
so ease the tide 'cause baby, I'm so blue.

You are the unwritten novel on the shelf of my heart.
I put it off so long I thought I'd never start.
The words don't come exactly as I'd like them,
and I'd write you now, but baby, I'm so blue.

And it remains to be seen if the price is worth the meaning.
And it remains to be seen if you're still in view with the changing of the seasons.
Track Name: A Strange Place
They all want 15,
and I'm just hoping for three,
something simple to pass the time,
or a nice face next to mine.

But maybe this is good for me.
Maybe this is what I need.

(refrain)
Hey, hey, what's your name my friend?
I've never seen you here before.
Hey, hey what's your name my friend?
You caught me at a strange place right now.

They all want some dream
perpetuated by a screen.
Forget not the rush of skin on skin,
and face the reality of the world we live in.

'Cause this is all I've got to give.
My life follows no movie script.

(refrain)
Track Name: Another White Night
Jealousy
Speaks to me
Holds me tight
While I sleep

Whisper low
The things you did
Tell me now
I need to know

(refrain)
The windows are wide,
The brightness floods in,
And I can’t close my eyes in another white night

Jealousy
Let me be free.
Take away the light
That kept me up for so long, I know,
I want to black it out,
And let it go

(refrain)

They said it wouldn’t be long
Until I write another song,
But I know that it’s gone for good.

Maybe, I could be wrong,
And maybe, this is that song,
I don’t know, but it’s gone for good.

The windows are closed,
The darkness sets in,
And I close my eyes in another dark day without you,
Day without you,
Day without you,
Day without you,
Day without you here.
