Track Name: Rainstorm
you know you are a temptress
i chase the tails of your dirty white dress
my body aches for the moment
when we find ourselves alone in this mess

you come down like a rainstorm
i never felt one like this before
you woke me up in the middle of the night
on your back, on my bedroom floor

i know there's things i could show you
but they fill my mind with doubt
i just can't keep my hands off you
i wanna let your voices out

you come down like a rainstorm
i never seen one get me this wet
you woke me up in the middle of the night
the smell of your skin, i won't forget
Track Name: Demons of Black Despair
Born to wander
be nothing but a stranger
no map, no clothes
not even a prayer
and if all you ever do
is drink, fish and think
why's it every time you blink
you're hounded by
Demons of Black Despair

Go to sleep content
think of nothing but kindness
awaken to nothing
but hurt and i'm mindless

No clue as to why
i fall into these blues
but it all goes away
with cocaine, pills and booze

No control in my brain
there's a hole in my heart
nothing to gain
as i'm falling apart

As i clench my whole body
hands to my head
sometimes i believe
i'd be better off dead

Born to wander
be nothing but a stranger
no map, no clothes
not even a prayer
and if all you ever do
is drink, fish and think
why's it every time you blink
you're hounded by
Demons of Black Despair
Track Name: Beg For It
Don't you wish this was heavy enough to fill your cup
or even better knock you up
Don't you wish the catalyst for this mess
wasn't hidden inside of your dress
Don't you wish this was heavy enough to fill your cup
or even better knock you up
Don't you wish the catalyst for this mess
wasn't hidden inside of your flesh
Shaking your head
touching your face
like a china doll
(until you beg for it)

until you beg for it
until you rip yourself wide open
Track Name: People
would you ever say
that you're likely
to be found any other way

i would never say
that i'm likely
to change my ways

people don't change
they just get better
at hiding their demons
cause these god damn demons never stray
they just hide behind some kind of life

would you ever say
your good intentions
have always led you the right way?

so many wrong turns
i have made
that the thought of it
is fucking brutal

people don't change
they just get older
Track Name: Relationshit
You should see
the view from where i'm sitting
didn't you always say
you wanted a window overlooking the sea...

i miss you

You used to say
that i should stay in school
that you'd always be around
then you decided to leave town

i miss you

I don't wanna be accused
of things i didn't do
isn't this the way
shit always got started

it's starting to remind me
of why i stayed in this town
and why'd you even call me
and why did i think that i miss you

at all

Nothing's wrong i'm fine!
Shut your mouth when you talk to me!
Leave me alone!
Why the fuck do i miss you?!
Track Name: Diamonds
sometimes i look to you for answers
and i don't know why i can't answer my own questions
but i do know i could trust anything you tell me

anything that glimmers
catches my eye
a million little diamonds
brought in with the tide

oh i need to break free
of all these little things that contain me
maybe when that job is done all will be well

baby it might be
simple but help me
i can't do it on my own

anything that glimmers
catches my eye
a million little diamonds
brought in with the tide
