Track Name: The Knife
THE KNIFE (Marina Bennett, Mark Kerrey, Eric Severinson)

Just when I thought that I had crossed that line
You brought me back and made it feel like the first time.
This is the last time
I - let down my guard - let you slip in the knife
That's how you opened my heart

I'm somewhere else. The wound has healed just fine.
Cover it up but I can't seem to hide it,
or deny it.
Oh, how did you somehow get the best of me?
Forget the time, there's nowhere I should be.
See how you opened my heart?

That's how you opened my heart.
Track Name: Drifts
DRIFTS (Eric Severinson, Marina Bennett)

Today I'm gonna smoke a million cigarettes,
Or drink some kind of virus.
Just how bad does it have to get
to forget about us?

Maybe today I'll face that loaded gun,
Or some untamed animal.
Anything at all to hold my attention,
or at least dull the roar.

But my mind drifts back to you.
My mind drifts back to you.
It doesn't matter what I do;
my mind drifts back to you.

Today I'm gonna fly myself away from here,
Maybe leave this atmosphere.
And maybe when the world is just a little pin-prick
it won't seem so severe.

But my mind drifts back to you.
My mind drifts back to you.
It doesn't matter what I do;
my mind drifts back to you.

No matter what I do
(My mind drifts back to you)
Track Name: Nasty Fall
NASTY FALL (Mark Kerrey, Eric Severinson)

I've been here a while
Hoping I'll be moving on real soon
I've waited in line
Sat in moldy chairs in off-white room

I want to know, I want to know how
Satisfied I can be with some
well-picked words or sounds
But I am in the dark

I've been here and there
Many miles and two doors down the hall
Though they say they care
I can see the boredom in them all

I want to know, I want to know how
Terrified I can be with some
well-picked words or sounds
But I am in the dark

I remember days when we would pass someone
Who'd look me in the eye
I remember flowers when they were strong
and had their fingers in the ground
At least one foot in the ground.

I want to know, I want to know how
Terrified I can be with some
well-picked words or sounds
But I am in the dark
Track Name: King of Everything
KING OF EVERYTHING (Eric Severinson)

Play me a sad song
That I can dance to
Questions wondering, lightening thundering
In the same tune

That's how I feel it
That's what I believe in
Sing "california to carolina"
In the same breath
Lest we forget:
Tec-9, trenchcoat, sex-tape, overdose
Are you not impressed?

Ooo... I'll give you one more chance to leave
Ooo... let me give you one more chance

Tell me your secret
Promise I can keep it
I've been through everything, share that suffering
I can heal it
Lest we forget:
I've been a 9 to 5 and a 5 to 9
I've been easy to see, hard to find

Play me a sad song
That I can dance to
Questions wondering, lightening thundering
In the same tune
'Cuz life is too short
So be the caffiene-ritalin-king-of-everything
Drink it all in
Track Name: Believe
BELIEVE (Eric Severinson, Marina Bennett)

I'm back again - awake from the dead
Like before we met
I'm so brand new - except now the moon
Reminds me of you

The saddest song I know
(I'll be okay)
It's on the radio
(I'll be okay)
It's everywhere I go but
I'll be okay

I'm on the mend - it's just like you said.
I guess you knew best!

Just tell me now,
What do I lean on now?
I don't believe in love.
I don't believe in love.
I don't believe.

This cold heart tires from playing with fire
and trusting desire.

The saddest song I know
(I'll be okay)
It's on the radio
(I'll be okay)
It's everywhere I go but
I'll be okay

Just tell me now,
What do I lean on now?
Tell me now,
'Cause I don't believe in love.

Just tell me now,
What do I lean on now?
I don't believe in love.
I don't believe in love.
I don't believe.
Track Name: Fifth and Final
FIFTH AND FINAL (Eric Severinson)

She usually calls when she's working late
But this is a first. I guess it's been like three days.

And I've been holding the key
and stepping through the door.
Turning the page
and moving onwards.
One step at a time
I tell the coroner, "That's her."
It's you. "That's her."
It's you.

"She usually left her phone on beside the bed.
She was always free to talk. All her friends knew that."

And I've been holding the key
and stepping through the door.
Turning the page
and moving onwards.
One step at a time
I tell the camera-man, "That was her."
It was you. "That was her."
It was you.

I've been rehearsing my lines to the bathroom wall
Can't change the past, and this wasn't my fault
My friends and my family say I've inspired them all
One step away from the fifth and final

But I'm getting pretty tired of progress
I'm getting pretty tired of success
When winning means I try to forget
Then I'm getting what I want - but that's not it.

And I've been holding the key
and stepping through the door.
Turning the page
and moving onwards.
One step at a time
I tell the man in the mirror,
"That's not her. It's you.
That's not her. It's you.
You didn't die that day.
You're still here."
Track Name: Time Again
TIME AGAIN (Eric Severinson, Marina Bennett)

You build me up just to let me down
This weekend, last week, and now
Fool me twice and shame on me
But we must be going on seventeen now
You build me up just to let me down

And you do it time and time and time and time again

You draw me out just to cut me off
Come back again and say you'll stop
I give you another chance to run, I just
playing games with a loaded gun
You draw me out just to cut me off

And you do it time and time and time and time again

I call your name, but you don't care
I cross the world, but you're not there
I shouldn't let you try again
I call your name, but you're not there
I cross the world, but you don't care
I shouldn't let you back in

Because you do it time and time and time and time again
Track Name: Control
CONTROL (Eric Severinson, Marina Bennett)

I built a fish,
and then I filled the sea with it.
A water so deep
You'll never find the end of it.

I'm in control.
I'm in control.

I built a star,
and then I filled the sky with it.
A fire so wild
You'll never find the heart of it.

I'm in control
(I put one piece in)
(I take one piece out)
I shake it all about

The universe is heavy, I know,
So stay young. Just stay young.
Universes come and they go,
So stay young. Stay young.

I built the dark,
and then I put the beasts in it.
Waiting in the depths underneath your bed.
Waiting for your "whole head in"

I put one piece in
I take one piece out
Then I shake it all about

The universe is heavy, I know,
So stay young. Just stay young.
Universes come and they go,
So stay young. Stay young.

So much control
What do I do with it all?
I do whatever I please.
I do whatever I please.
Track Name: Tools of Regret
TOOLS OF REGRET (Eric Severinson, Marina Bennett)

You've been a long time coming, not coming around
The kettle whines, but there's no one to cool it down
You've been a long time hiding in the dark, cryin'
Ooo...

Someone heard a sine wave, someone heard a bird sing
Someone heard a train they didn't see it coming
Reaching for the top shelf, opening the lockbox
Ooo...

These are the tools of regret
These are the means to our end
These are the tools of regret
Let us just hope that
next time we'll be wiser

You've spent your whole life looking for someone to blame
you run and you run but you can't get away
You and your demons are one and the same
Track Name: Hide You
HIDE YOU (Marina Bennett, Eric Severinson)

Stealing from another,
Headlights under water, throwing stones
Try to stay afloat.

Stealing sons and daughters
Fires in the harbour, broken roads
But you're got me to hold.

Keep both hands and head inside
The water's rising higher
Stay with me

I'll hide you from the leaves
Keep you underneath me
Hide you from the season
Hide you from the breeze
Don't sail away without me
Hide you from the seasons

Hide you from the changing leaves
Hide you from the... everything

Help will never reach you
And promises deceive you, leave you cold
But here it's dry and warm

Keep both hands and head inside
The water's rising higher
Stay with me

I'll hide you from the leaves
Keep you underneath me
Hide you from the season
Hide you from the breeze
Don't sail away without me
Hide you from the seasons

Hide you from the breeze
You won't make it without me
Hide you from the seasons

Hide you from the changing leaves
Hide you from the... everything
Track Name: Habit
HABIT (Eric Severinson, Marina Bennett)

Make all you girlfriends act more like your exes
Pour another can of gas on that battle of the sexes
And if someone makes you choose
Between questions and progress
Then you'll know what to do
You can just do what you always do

You have to read. Have to work. You have to; just like your dad did
Buy a house and paint it blue like the one you grew up in
And if someone makes you choose
Between a textbook and the Good Book
Then you'll know what to do
You can just do what you always do

Everyone in town can stitch a flag and sing the anthem
And anyone who's tried can play this chord and the next one
So if someone makes you choose
Between war bonds and guitars
Then you'll know what to do
Just do what you always do
Track Name: Friends
FRIENDS

My friends are invisible
My friends are online
My friends are cynical,
but we share what we don't like

My friends are impossible
Say what they don't mean
'Cause looking back
No one has made more fun of me

Though there are oceans between us, we'll never be alone
My friends aren't here right now, but they're everywhere I go

My friends are omniscient
They know everything
When I step out of line
They're the ones who set me straight

My friends are unstoppable
They do as they please
But when they've got my back
The world is as it should be

Though there are oceans between us, we'll never be alone
My friends aren't here right now, but they're everywhere I go
Everything is between us, but I don't stand alone
My friends aren't here right now, but they're everywhere I go

Everywhere you go, you'll never be alone

My friends are my protige
And they're my teacher
My friends are my judge,
Jury, and executioner

Because I am the worst of us
And I've always been
I break my promises
But they don't give up on me

Though there are oceans between us, we'll never be alone
My friends aren't here right now, but they're everywhere I go
Everything is between us, but I don't stand alone
My friends aren't here right now, but they're everywhere I go

Everywhere you go, you'll never be alone
