Track Name: The Note
Fooled again, yeah by the end
You may see how this began
Oh in your head, there you tread
On the things that they've all said
On the fine line, there you dine
On the things they've left behind
So now I'm full, what to do?
I think I might follow suit...

On the day that she went away
I knew I had something more to say
But the more I thought the more I'd forgotten
And I was too numb to be distraught
Yeah, on the day that she went away
I had a feeling she wouldn't stay
I knew right then what this was about
So I just let her walk on out
Yeah, instead of a statement I shouted clues
So my last words could be misconstrued
All of my life I have not known what to say
So all night and day I'll just fade away

All night and day 'til I fade away...
Track Name: What Mollie Said
Your hands could make a big mistake
You could throw it all away
In the stream you think you're safe
But that is only temporary

Your mind could take your soul away
You could trade it in for days
In the stream you think you're safe
But that is only temporary
Track Name: Moreta's Ride
She wakes up in the morning and bites her nails down to the core
She chews on her lips until they bleed, making sure she doesn't have anything left at all

Softened shame
The biggest claim
The holes
The highest tide

Moreta's ride

She blasts off in the evening, she runs everywhere
She spits out her name until she's scared and she's not sure if it ever was her name at all

Moistened stare
It's everywhere
The souls
The biggest lie

Moreta's ride

She gives him all her money, he is forcibly retrieving
Carrying her self esteem in his hands
Clenching his fists tightly
Smashing what she had
Cutting her down...
Track Name: Mollie
Sister, where have you been?
I have not seen you for years now
I'm wondering if you have any kids

I have planned so many times to see you
I have planned so many times to see you
Oh Mollie, what happened to me?

I looked at my arm today, it's growing spots
I'm growing spots, I look like a leopard
I'm wondering, will they ever go away?

I have planned so many times to see you
I have planned so many times to see you
Oh Mollie, what happened to me?

Sister, if I die before I awaken
I want you to know
I have not forgotten what you said

I have planned so many times to see you
I have planned so many times to see you
Oh Mollie, what happened to me?
Track Name: Befriending the Darkness
Home is where you go to be alone
A hole is where you go to find a home
Lies are what you need to dig a hole
As they make stellar shovels

The dirt is piling up
The dirt is building up
Is it heavy enough?
Is it heavy enough?

And when the weight is too much to handle you're home
When the weight is too much to handle you're home...

It's harder to see as you travel deeper into the hole you dug
Everyone speaks in a series of needs, of which there is no doubt
That your everything, and your anything is drifting into blackout
And shovels, they gleam with a certainty: There is no way out

And the darkness befriends you
And the darkness defends you...
Track Name: Awakening
His eyes went wide when Moreta sighed
It was only the hundredth time
Oh Moreta, when your hands grow
You could slap the entire world

He stood up when she called his name
"Oh Lucas" she said with no shame
Oh Moreta, when your love grows
You could save the entire world

Her eyes lit up when she heard his voice
"Oh Lucas" she said with no choice
Oh Moreta, when your heart grows
You could let this all go

Oh Moreta, when your wings grow
You could let this all go...
Track Name: I.V. Stuck
Sometimes I wake up
White walled, i.v. stuck
Life in my bed feels like heaven

I remember hints of you
Glossy shots of you
Life in your head feels sedated

Sometimes I see guns
In the pocket books of everyone
Picking out the loose change
Connecting the dots
I don't have time, I'm on a ride

When I'm alone I see an awful sight
Muddy hands touch my back
I am shoved along
To a locked door
The keys on the floor
But I can't see, I'm in disbelief

Sometimes I give up
I get this feeling in my gut
I know it's time
I will abide...
Track Name: De Ja Vu (The Sensation You Are Doing Something You Have Done Before)
She calls his name as the clock is ticking
There's so much room for him to share
She's scared, she won't leave him alone
It seems without her he'd be dead
As he's lying, dying in his beloved bed

Enter the voice in her head:
"If you're holding on, brace for impact"

She's going on now
To find her own now
What are you looking for?
What can you find out walking through the gravel carrying a shovel?
Moreta knows by now what it's all about

It's dark near her
It seems to follow her around
She sees it in the distance
A hole in the wall blacker than his soul has been
Moreta, why can't you just listen?
You really think you can save him?

I admire you
We admire you

But if you're holding on, brace for impact
Brace for impact...
Track Name: The Mine
Oh Moreta your hands are tied
Your body's moving out toward the night
Your bones have a message
Everyone gets, but ignores

But you are headed the wrong way
What is that in the darkest of caves?

Moreta fell into a hole in the mine
And now she's crying because she is blind
Moreta fell into a hole in the mine
And now she's crying because she is blind

Don't let them get to you
Don't let them get to you
Because you will see it all in time...
Track Name: Modern Martyrs
Sinking down into the depths of her soul
She is just where she started
Will she ever know just what was said
When he finally departed?
Sickening how this world works in frames
Everyone is glorifying death in many ways
And then he plays victim to the very biggest lie
Victim to another suicide...

Sinking down into the folds of her bed
She is just where she started
Moistened stare into the mirror, she weeps
"Who is this I'm becoming?"
Sickening how your death was portrayed
Everyone is glorifying death in many ways
And then he plays victim to the very biggest lie
Victim to another suicide...
Track Name: ...Where Holes Lead
Love leads to the bottom of the sea to show you
They're waiting at the bottom of the sea to show you
You were never fooled
You were never fooled by someone else
You fooled yourself

Holes lead tot he bottom of the sea to show you
They're waiting at the bottom of the sea to show you
You were never fooled
You were never fooled by someone else
You fooled yourself again

You fooled yourself again...
