Track Name: Memory Maker
we are young but
not for long
we live a day
a day is lost
a burden buried
in the dust
it's just as well
it fell away
a little late
a little less
I can't escape
the black
is fading like a
memory I will
dig a grave
and bury
this mistake
I make a promise
then I break it
why was I left
why was I left
why was I left
Track Name: They Were Full Of Brave Illusions About Each Other
there's nobody like you
there's nobody with your smile
there's nobody like you
there's nobody with your smile

I was the fool who loved you
I was the fool who cared
I was the fool who loved you
I was the fool who cared

lost and out of my mind
held in place by aged and frozen
feelings out of there time
things disintegrated slowly

I was the fool who loved you
I was the fool who cared
I was the fool who loved you
I was the fool who cared
Track Name: Always
we became the ghosts of eachother
the son and daughter of misfortune
and turning in my sleep
the best of you I keep
buried in the dim and dying light of
when love was young and we were

wide-eyed
true
breathing

I remember you beside
me in bed at night
whispering the words to Atlantic City
your arms around my neck
hand inside my hand
kids under the covers alone and we were

wide-eyed
true
breathing

for you
my heart
is torn
always
blue blood
pouring
out of
my veins
love was
young and
wide-eyed
now it sleeps

we became the ghosts of eachother
the son and daughter of misfortune
and turning in my sleep
the best of you I keep
buried in the dim and dying light of
when love was young and we were

wide-eyed
true
breathing

for you
my heart
is torn
always
blue blood
pouring
out of
my veins
for us
I'll carve
light into
dark
smother
out the
tiniest
spark
love was
young and
wide-eyed
true and
breathing
now its
heart is
hardly
beating
for you
for us
always
blue blood
pouring
out of
my veins
I miss you
I miss you
I miss you
I miss you
Track Name: Teenage Lions
Marie you kept my secret safe
behind the wall of your eyes
you have the deepest of me hidden
so cleverly disguised

you

do you remember meeting halfway
walking miles in the snow
I miss the sight of you appearing
more than you will ever know

you

when it's blue and when it's black
when the winter air reacts
to the ancient factory fumes
is when I will think of you

you
Track Name: A Sudden Burden Of Proof
what of a life
what of a life's promise
they've never been
they've never been honest
I'll never be
I'll never be anything
I'll never be
I'll never be any

one breath away
I will be here
with you
this is true

she wrote a name
across his heart
every letter a lie
they tore a promise apart
we'll never be
we'll never be anything
we'll never be
we'll never be any

one breath away
I will be here
with you
this is true
Track Name: Hours We Could Have Spent Fucking With The TV On
me and my neighbor both have knives under our pillows
me in a fog I see his shadow in my window
why is he moving why is he moving so slowly
why is he moving why is he moving so slowly
screaming in silence but never knowing if he heard me
I'm left believing he was the widower of "wait here"
maybe he couldn't he couldn't see me through the light of
my television my figure hidden in the glow of

maybe this time I will be myself

when we were strangers he hovered in forgotten corners
waiting for light to shift and fall on lovers at the altar
now I don't even now I don't even think to wonder
was it the mother's sin that made a murderer of her son
me and my neighbor both have knives under our pillows
me in the dark I strike a match and wait for answers
they never tell you they never tell you that the truth is
there's no forever only a lie for you to wait on

maybe this time I will be myself
Track Name: Love Song For D. A. Levy
what are we
but what we have been made to be
born out of
blind chance there is no choice for me

third eye sits
one thin book of poems away
guide my hand
steady pull the trigger and pray
Track Name: In These Woven Streets Your Face Became The Fabric Of This City
how long can you
how long can you stay
the end of us
just hours away
the length of you
drawn down from your hair
the darkness and
the depth of your stare

how long
for us
how long
time is a bitter judge
how long
for us

from the window
in my bedroom
under a pale
and lonely mood
every thread of
this city view
a woven image
of me and you

how long
for us
how long
time is a bitter judge
how long
for us
Track Name: Only
you and I had meaning
all but lost and losing I believe it
crossed out and washed in black
things that I can't take back
seeing you was all I
ever thought about when you were away
hand over heart I swear
looked for you everywhere

I'll tell you what these are
promises in the dark
I'm lost
somewhere
in last
summer

I'd do it all over
hold my wounded heart over the fire
tell you I'm not alright
things that I kept inside
I remember feeling
you beside me on the floor breathing
hands laid and held on hearts
once whole but now in parts

I'll tell you what these are
promises in the dark
I'm lost
somewhere
in last
summer
Track Name: She Was An Evergreen Tree
the days the days the days
the days became a blur with you
remains remains remains
a paper trail of I love you's
I'm sorry's not enough
I'm sorry's all that I can say
regrets regrets regrets
the bridge is burned and washed away

the days the days the days
the days became a blur with you
mistakes mistakes mistakes
unburdened hours are far and few
believe believe believe
believe that I will never be
the same the same the same
the things you said have stayed with me
