Track Name: gloria
it's 4 o'clock, left the bar left my phone, i would have called
but no one's home, but this ghost of fault I hate to call my own
but it's not yours, gloria.
bought and sold, high the low. abused when kept and then let go
it's a shame the names we claim we won't forget so soon grow cold
but not yours, gloria.

gloria, don't save the best for last
you swore you'd stay until the end, but the end came too fast
now i'm all left with is what grace of god i have

slowly so the bruises grow softly and without alarm
you take my arm and tell me these foolish dreams are the only things i know
ther'es no fooling you, gloria

gloria, don't save the best for last
you swore you'd stay until the end, but the end came too fast
now i'm all left with is what grace of god i have
Track Name: elephant
saving graces betting on the races
calling home to make sure that i've been true
take from the gutter and paint me in a corner
that's what lovers do
fools on the road to recovery learned nothing but where to hide
from truth disguised as suffering that bites before it dies
you better run, you better run
take their bullets from their guns
nothing lasts forever, but this won't be over soon enough
crawl if you need to, but only if you mean it
that's what lovers do

take it apart or put it back together
break their hearts if the passion is gone
forget spreading rumors, this is how you start them
breaking up is easy to do

borrowed glory brings the lonely
but in the morning it sends them home
can't run anymore it's in the walls and coming through the floorboards
busting through the windows and tearing down the doors
if it doesn't bear repeating you should't have done it
even the sirens don't bring silence anymore.

take it apart or put it back together
break their hearts if the passion is gone
forget spreading rumors, this is how you start them
breaking up is easy to do
Track Name: mostly harmless
false flag, you're alone now turn the lights out
breathing on your window makes it seem like i might be dreaming
court orders can't speak for my love
when what comes from the heart can't be kept behind bars
i can pretend we're more than just friends
your other lover's not gonna keep you from the back of my van
this wishlist carved into my wrist
like a cannibal kiss with the punch of a fist

what do i have to do to prove my love to you
there's no such thing as romance with a girl like you
if love letter or leather won't bring us together
it's just a matter of time before i find out what will

you don't know how lucky you are to be the object of my affection
but ignoring my calls is cause for alarm
just like telling me white lies and changing the locks
i can tell when you're there by the smell of your hair
those locks don't change . if i can help it nothing else will
if wedding bells don't ring as planned
they'll ring in your head until there's a ring on your hand

what do i have to do to prove my love to you
there's no such thing as romance with a girl like you
if love letter or leather won't bring us together
it's just a matter of time before i find out what will

this frustration needs to rest
i rest my head, but when i wake it starts again
we're not so different. remember when
the rain was looming overhead
i gave you my heart. you gave me your hand
and when the rain came you laughed and said
oh well, at least we'll both get wet.

what do i have to do to prove my love to you
there's no such thing as romance with a girl like you
if love letter or leather won't bring us together
it's just a matter of time before i find out what will
Track Name: watership down
check your pride at their fences
risk it all for your foot at the end of their chains
while they plot to send you to your grave
it's the ghosts of the restless haunting your sleep
another kit in the hole, nevermind the weather
get it on in the snow if you don't freeze together
don't we live for the warmth, when we can live of the farm
if we're clever, we'll never even trip their alarms
it's so easy to say you can't imagine another love
but when danger comes, soaked in blood
you pray, "give us shelter, lord." but there's none.

i'm not afraid of your poisons
i'm not afraid of your floods
i'm not afraid of your dogs
i'm not afraid of your guns
empty your jackets if you're thirsty for blood
screaming, "Bring me the rabbits" at the top of your lungs

suffer pellets for lettuce
the weakest among us will the wrath of their teeth
while the cages might protect us from harm
what's keeping us warm is the hutch burn searing our feet
another lost to the frost, that cage is looking better
nothing lasts forever and here it's easier to weather the storm
where no one's lost on account of the cold
and the only rush of blood is what comes from our throats
the bones in the corner beg us to consider another life
through the starless sky, devoid of light
but for the glimpse of the devil in the glint of their knives.

i'm not afraid of your poisons
i'm not afraid of your floods
i'm not afraid of your dogs
i'm not afraid of your guns
empty your jackets if you're thirsty for blood
screaming, "Bring me the rabbits" at the top of your lungs
