Track Name: I feel fine
colour me in another shade of red
I need a hook to keep me here

and yet sometimes I feel fine
sometimes I feel fine

cover me up, shield me from light
I never did find out who I was

and yet sometimes I feel fine
sometimes I feel fine
Track Name: kingdom come
been having words with the kings only daughter
she holds my gaze like nobody else can
she heals my wounds with candle wax
and in return I hold her

oh well, it's fine
she tries so she gets by
oh well it's fine... (she tries so she gets by)

been finding keys for broken locks
darling found a new job
I did my time on the wooden cross
as father smashed his pocket watch

as she bled she smiled at me
the mechanics swept her off her feet

oh well it's fine
she tried and she got by
well well, what do we have here?
the princess died so give a cheer

been having words with the kings only daughter
through a 6 foot fall

oh well, it's fine
if I try I'll get by
oh well it's fine...
Track Name: terminal
I'll take hold of the chemicals
and they'll take hold of me
I admit I long for it when it feels like there's nobody to be

and it's terminal

throw a rose to keep me on show
when light forms a circle around my feet
I will smile a painful smile and wash my head of memory

it's terminal

happiness is not what you think
it's just a mask that you wear
it's the warm voice that scolds you at night
blinding you when it's not there

it's terminal
Track Name: methamphetamine
you always lit the scene with the methamphetamine
you wouldn't let me in, you wouldn't let me see

it's a common sense of style to tear yourself apart
you could not resist the euphoric mist

you always seemed to say, it was your only escape
you didn't want to wait for me

but you were living way too fast, those highs just didn't last
you were all set to crash in front of me

now the hospital bed's empty, they're selling off your jewellery
the papers have a story for next week

I think about you every day now, while I fall asleep with strangers
but that can't fill the emptiness, it's just not the same
Track Name: //cutout
I think I love you uttered as a breath
my breath
cut out
gone
lost
Track Name: incense
the candles on your table
the stars above your bed that make the room red

when I close my eyes
it’s what I wanna see when I open them again

but no, I don’t care where we wake up
I just want to fall asleep with you

no I don’t care where we wake up
I just want to fall asleep with you

the faintest smell of incense
a hundred drawings on your wall, I’ve memorised them all

the ocean in your frozen eyes
oh your arms round me and your face on my chest

but no, I don’t care where we wake up
I just want to fall asleep with you

no I don’t care where we wake up
I just want to fall asleep with you
Track Name: rose
anxiously I hold my breath
carefully I kiss your neck
I'd only do this for you

beautifully you let it slip
trembling I bite your lip
you say "I'd do anything for you"

(I call to say I called, so when you're gone I'll think about you)

tenderly you graze my skin
cautiously I let you in
I'd only do this for you

It matters to me if it matters to you so if you want to run I'm running too

I'll keep you from harm
I'll never go far
