Track Name: christmas eve '08
you woke up from a dream although you weren't asleep. somewhere in between. somewhere make believe. in a place that made you think that nothing ever happened. nothing ever changed. where things would stay the same.

you came on christmas eve so you could bury me somewhere underneath your perfect christmas tree. but it wouldn't bother me if you could only see that you have become everything you said you'd never be. and i hope you know your parents think you're doing fine. think you stayed in school and think you're sober all the time. but you're not fooling me. i think i can see. even though i'm buried here under the christmas tree.
Track Name: leave this city behind you
fly. watch the world just pass you by. out the window see the sky and wonder how you're still alive. looking down from such great heights. see the darkness see the lights. wonder where you'll sleep tonight. where you'll wake up tomorrow.

this world is never what it seems. diet pills and magazines. soak yourself with gasoline. take a picture of the sea so you can have one memory. but don't look back it's time to leave this city behind you.
Track Name: alleys
for a moment you were peaceful locked away inside your mind.
in a wonderland of feeling you can take your time.

i want to know what makes you happy. i want to know what i can do to make you smile. let's get away from all these people. when i take you far away you'll be all mine.
Track Name: letter from home
kid i hope you're staying in this evening. i don't want you to take pills anymore. but you wont listen to me and my friends say you're not good for me. but all i want to know is that you're safe.

we should pack our bags go on an adventure. we could drive your car until it breaks. we could pick up passengers and laugh at all our failures and at night we might find somewhere new to stay.

or i was thinking we should play some music. i'll bring my guitar and tambourine. maybe you could play the cello? start an earthquake with your violin bow. we'll play nine inch nails and rage against the machine.

kid i hope you're staying in this evening. i don't want you to take pills anymore. but you wont listen to me and my friends say you're not good for me. but all i want to know is that you're safe.
Track Name: you were wrong
sleep tight. it's hours after midnight. you see the world in black and white. so you fill yourself with parasites. is that the way you want to live? it isn't all you think it is. you're not moving up you're breaking down ever sice you came to this town.

don't know what got you so excited about the idea of a new life. I know you've got a different story to the one you told me last night.

you're the one that keeps it calm. you're the needle in your arm. you're the one that broke your heart. you're the one who's falling apart.

don't know what got you so excited about this idea in the first place because now they've broken all their promises and they're laughing in your face.
