Track Name: Monster
His little whispers, Love Me. Love Me.
That's all I ask for, Love Me. Love Me.
He battered his tiny fists to feel something.
Wondered what it's like to touch and feel something.

[Chorus]
Monster.
How should I feel?
Creatures lie here.
Looking through the window...

That night he caged her
Bruised and broke her.
He struggled closer.
Then he stole her.
Violet wrists and then her ankles.
Silent Pain.
Then he slowly saw their nightmares.
Were his dreams.

[Chorus]
Monster.
How should I feel?
Creatures lie here.
Looking through the windows.

I will.
Hear their voices.
I'm a glass child.
I am Hannah's regrets.

Monster.
How should I feel?
Turn the sheets down.
Murder ears with pillow lace.

There's bath tubs
Full of glow flies.
Bathe in kerosene
Their words tattooed in his veins.
Track Name: Roses
Turn around there's those eyes again.
Turn around fake indifference and I.
Watch their cold, dark silhouettes disappear.
A hundred bodies fill this room.
And all their faces overdone.
Pain is foreign, foreign to us.

I don't even know you.
You won't even know I'm gone.
Was it something I did wrong?

Roses, roses cold.
Roses, roses sold out.

Turn around reds and whites again.
I'd sell my kicks for one more low tar.
Fevers hand in hand with shoelace bracelets. Why are some girls so naive?
He didn't unbutton your blouse to see.
A better view of your heart.
Oh yeah, can't blame you for trying.

I don't even know you.
You won't even know I'm gone.
Was it something I did wrong?

Roses, roses cold.
Roses, roses sold out.

Sing it soft.
Make it slow.
Apples parachute
the boys back down.
Fill it up.
Overflow.
A new, improved modern way to feel.

I don't even know you.
You won't even know I'm gone.
Was it something I did wrong?
Track Name: Tell Mary
Oh, Play along.
She wills it.
Oh, Sunday came.
Promised you'd tell her.
She sat up in bed.
Answered your call dear.
Smeared purple and red.
You're gonna leave her tonight.
She sat up with her eyes wide.
You fell in love with a girl you knew.
You've come to say goodbye.
You're gonna leave her tonight.
Under a cheap July sky.
Tell her.
Tell Mary.
After the first touch.
Her skirt boring.
Her voice deep and charming at first.
You could make her come back once in a while.
If you painted a fresco.
There she'd be with her powder half falling off.
So perfect from far.
Meet me at the pictures Mary.
Adam said that he was leaving.
Meet me.
Meet Me.
You're gonna leave her tonight.
You're gonna leave her tonight.
She sat up with her eye's wide.
You fell in love with a girl you knew.
With a girl you knew.
You're gonna leave her tonight.
She sat up with her eyes wide.
You fell in love with a girl you knew.
And you've come to say goodbye.
You're gonna leave her tonight.
Under a cheap July sky.
Tell her.
Tell Mary.

Track Name: Masterpiece
Too bad you knew me.
When I wasn't ready.
I wasn't ready.
Did I say, "Come and get me?"
Too bad I held on.
When you tried to tell me.
This was wrong.
This was wrong

I am no masterpiece where innocence is painted green.
Isn't it strange to think that you created all of me?

Done by the hands of a broken artist.
You painted black where my naked heart is.
I finally know what wrong is.
Now I finally know what wrong is.
Carved like a stone with your hands still shaking.
On display through a soul still breaking.
Aren't you proud you're the one that made me?
Aren't you proud you're the one that made me?

You can't erase these.
Lines you can't save me.
You can't display me.
You know what dismay means.
I can't even try to.
Remember what I knew.
Before I became your.
Model to claim no.
I am no masterpiece where innocence is painted green.
Isn't it strange to think how you created all of me?

I grew tired.
You expired.
You finished me.
Now that I'm all that you planned.
What do you think?

Done by the hands of a broken artist.
You painted black where my naked heart is.
I finally know what wrong is.
Now I finally know that you bleed for nothing.
Carved like a stone with your hands still shaking.
On display through a soul still breaking.
Aren't you proud you're the one that made me?
Aren't you proud you're the one that made me?
Track Name: Rebecca
Stood by my missus in the lobby.
Asked to carry bags of Madame.
Elevators rush to the sea.
Rummaged through my coat for the key.
After tea lounged on the sofa.
My lady spoke of everyone she knew there.
She paused.
Grabbed my wrist.
Said,"Now, darling there he is."
I looked up.
My surroundings stirred and smeared.
His eyes calm and distant.
His mouth so severe.
Though half his age I was.
I've never been in love.
Before then.
Max, you're so distraught.
Perhaps, I'll help you out.
Your wife was so much more than me.
But I can be her now.
I can be her now.
Rush down the stairs to that man.
Mr.Summer, he nodded his head.
With laughter in his eyes.
A smirk followed close behind.
"We're strangers but I'm sure we should be married."
I spoke to my master.
She nodded her head.
Though I was young and scared.
With Max standing there.
We took our first step
Track Name: Nineteen Stars
Don't tell me.
You're done for.
I don't need to hear.
You're done for.
You can tell me what you are running from.
I need you.
More than you need you.
I can see you're really really running.
May I ask you where you gonna run to?
And you think you're really really funny
well i don't think you're as funny as you do
We all feel like we're breaking sometime.
But I won't let you go tonight.
Stay awake.
Stay awake survive.
I've got nineteen stars that I.
Gave your name.
Tonight.
I wanna scream.
Wanna scream your name.
Star light, star bright, can save.
You're my wish tonight.
Don't tell me, it doesn't matter
I'll tell you.
What matters.
Bare feet in the summer.
Open windows at night.
You think that no one needs you.
You have nothing to see through.
Well I needed you.
Don't I count?
Lets fight.
Show me anger.
Fierce fists clutching onto air
Show me anything
Just show me you care
Stay awake.
Stay awake survive.
I've got nineteen stars that I.
Gave your name.
Tonight.
I wanna scream.
Wanna scream your name.
Star light, star bright, can save.
You're my wish tonight.
No one can catch me.
The way that you catch me.
The way that you keep me when I'm out of time.
What if I need you?
What if I can't see you?
And I'm running out of life.
No one can catch me.
The way that you catch me.
The way that you keep me when I'm out of time.
What if I need you?
What if I can't see you?
And I'm running out of life.
Please,
Stay awake.
Stay awake survive.
I've got nineteen stars that I.
Gave your name.
Tonight.
I wanna scream.
Wanna scream your name.
Star light, star bright, can save.
You're my wish tonight.
Track Name: Cardigan Weather
I saw you with her dear.
You tried to hide away.
She left through the back door.
You always had your secret ways.
I acted so serene.
I was so drowsy then.
My fault.
I'm so careless.
I gave you one too many pills.

My oh my.
My alibi.
Restore my fate in these.
Words so clear.
My failure dear.
Lies tucked away in me.

You wanted to play this game.
I'll play it too.
Come here baby I will show you what this girl can do.
A mattress for a coffin suites you very fine.
You'll feel me with my others as you're sewn under the seams.

My, oh my,
My alibi,
Restore my fate in these
Words so clear,
My failure dear
Lies tucked away in me

My, oh my
My alibi
Restore my fate in theese
Words so clear (words so clear)
My failure dear
Lies tucked away, tucked away in me (yeah)
My,
Oh,
My
Track Name: Getaways Turned Holidays
Fate leave on my doorstep.
A soldier, a soldier.
A fable, a fortune.
I long for.
I long for.
Ever so secret I see.
What's in store for me.
I won't let it mislead.
Oh no...no, It hasn't happened yet.
As for the dying.
And the fading.
And resolve to be.
Okay with the natural decay.
I'll choose illusion.
And safety a hundred times over.
I'm prepared to be happy and deceived.
I'm supposed to be happy and deceived.
Let us find perfection.
And nonsense in all we are.
Save defects for later.
We're angels for now.
Hide my uniform pride.
Your arrogant side.
I'm aching already.
Hide your taciturn, mundane expressions.
Affection will carry us a little while more.
Let us be entertained.
Let me believe it ends this way.
As for this dying.
And as for the rotting.
I'm okay with this natural decay.
I'll choose illusions.
And safety a hundred times over.
I'm prepared to be happy and deceived.
I'm supposed to be happy and deceived.
I'm prepared to be happy and deceived.
Drop this curtain.
I'm happy and Naive.
Track Name: Courage, Robert
He saw a lonely girl.
She saw a lonely world.
It was a canvas,
slyly careless.
A florestan lieder.

And his was a dying breed.
Courage came only from
his symphonies.
A decorative smile
to fade out.
His concerto in A

Come on.
A second chance at love.
The moments dead.
Make you feel like it's never staying.

Made love to a baby grand.
A tempest refined inside his hands.
He had one girl, and one song.
Bone fide wine and roulade.

But he had to give it up.
His heart was raw.
But his fingers numb.
His first words were his last words.
An aesthete since first sun.

Come on.
A second chance at love.
The moments slept.
Make you feel like it's never staying.

It burned.
The first attempt or two.
But I remembered you.
I need that moment back.

Please don't, don't don't.
A tremor for death.
Ivories that sliced sedatives in half.
Releif in the Rhine.
Washed away regrets.
And let him char before he
carressed the ground.

Dear artist you will rise again.
A last arabesque in faint fashion.

Come on.
A second change at love.
The moments dead.
Make you feel like it's never ending.

It burned.
The first attempt or two.
But I remembered you.
I need that moment back.
Please don't forget.

He woke.
A final view of blue.
Dear cordias. Wet rouge.
Relieve romance to graves.
Please, please don't forget
Track Name: Setting Up Sunday
Setting up Sunday
Watching the winter grow so old. No.
We're making excuses
For insecurities
It's not about me
Oh, it's never about me

Now I can't go on
I'm lost and alone
Now my lovers gone
I'm lost and alone

Kid, I'm right here
and I'm not leaving
There's no way to make you stay
But, I'm saving all my worries for
The day you don't need me

We're selling out Monday
Watching the children grow, so cold, no
Oh they're wearing our hands down
Our human frailties
It's not about me
Oh, it's never about me

Now I can't go on
I'm lost and alone
Now my lovers gone
I'm lost and alone

Kid I'm right here
and I'm not leaving
There's no way to make you stay
But, I'm saving all my worries for
That day you don't need me

Kid I'm right here
It's now morning
There's no way
Please stay

We're Setting up Sunday
Watching their hearts in soil,
Grow mold..
