Track Name: Lunatic + Saturnine
Hey, I like the looks of you.
You've got a broken heart
Well I've got one too.
Give me half of yours
I'll give you half of mine
Half of yours for half of mine
Half lunatic, half saturnine

Hey, are you doing okay?
You look like you haven't slept in 20 days
The moon looks like it's covered in dust
bits of broken heart and bits of broken trust

Kiss me softly, don't pull away
Softly, don't push away
Kiss me softly, don't pull away
Softly, don't push away

Hey, I guess thems the breaks
This is exactly how I made my past mistakes
It's like the moon's wax and the moon's wane
I ebb and flow and come back again
Like the moon's wax and the moon's wane

Kiss me softly, don't pull away
Softly, don't push away
Kiss me softly, don't pull away
Softly, don't push away
Track Name: Depleted
Listening to The Smiths alone in the dark
Reading paperbacks alone in the park
Going out for lunch and eating alone
Laying in the bath ignoring the phone
Wishing I could just be left alone

I can't help feeling cheated
Just when I thought I'd been completed
Every time we kiss I'm more depleted
Depleted, depleted

I do my laundry on Saturdays
Sometimes I take in a matinee
I've a diary I keep under my bed
Where I write the things I should have said
Maybe one day they will get read

I can't help feeling cheated
Just when I thought I'd been completed
Every time we kiss I'm more depleted
Depleted, depleted
Track Name: Wishes
When I sleep, I'm covered by you
No one darkens my night the way you do
When I dream, I'm dreaming of you
No one sweetens my dreams the way you do

But love is only wishes
Pulling petals off a flower
The dreams that taste the sweetest
Have a way of turning sour
Love is only weakness
Fragile as a flower
The dreams that taste the sweetest
Have a way of turning sour

When I breathe, I'm breathing you in
No one else gets under my skin
When I sweat, I'm sweating for you
No one drowns me quite the way you do

But love is only wishes
Pulling petals off a flower
The dreams that taste the sweetest
Have a way of turning sour
Love is only weakness
Fragile as a flower
The dreams that taste the sweetest
Have a way of turning sour

Love is only weakness
Fragile as a flower
The dreams that taste the sweetest
Have a way of turning sour

The first bud to blossom
Is the first bloom to wither
The dreams that smell the sweetest
Have a way of turning bitter

Love is only wishes
Pulling petals off a flower
The dreams that taste the sweetest
Have a way of turning sour
Love is only weakness
Fragile as a flower
The dreams that taste the sweetest
Have a way of turning sour
Track Name: A Deeper Hurt
When something is precious and perfect and pure
It's also as fragile as crystal
Drop it once and it's never whole again
Drop it once and it's never whole again

The sky and the stars and the moon seem small
Inside I've got a hurt bigger than them all
The forest and the beach and the sea seem small
Inside I've got regrets deeper than them all

When something is as delicate and intricate as lace
It's also as vulnerable and frail
Tear it once and it's never whole again
Tear it once and it's never whole again

The sky and the stars and the moon seem small
Inside I've got a hurt bigger than them all
The forest and the beach and the sea seem small
Inside I've got regrets deeper than them all

Deeper than them all...
Track Name: A Little Touch
Why should we trip on words?
We're not cats, we're not birds
Why should we trip on words, tonight?

Why should trip on tongues?
We're not mute, we're not dumb
Why should trip on tongues, tonight?

Falling faster, falling further, falling deeper every day
Falling harder, falling softer, falling more in every way

We haven't done anything wrong
But fall in love tonight

Why should we mince our words?
The subtext remains unheard
Why should we mince our words, tonight?

Why should we be absurd?
Our hearts shouldn't be demurred
Why should we be absurd, tonight?

Falling faster, falling further, falling deeper every day
Falling harder, falling softer, falling more in every way

We haven't done anything wrong
But fall in love tonight

A little touch ain't asking for much...

Falling faster, falling further, falling deeper every day
Falling harder, falling softer, falling more in every way

We haven't done anything wrong
But fall in love tonight
Track Name: People Are Poison
I picked up a brand new cancer
I found them hiding on your Friendster
I liked their hair, I suddenly felt
We had to meet , they wore a white belt

Honestly, do you find joy in this
Drinking because people are poisonous

When I go out the antidote
Is wearing a tight denim coat
Everyone who hates me will brag
They know the boy with messenger bag

Honestly, do you find joy in this
Drinking because people are poisonous

Need a girl with retro T
And a tight, white belt...

There’ll be 20 bright young chaps
in ironic trucker caps
Getting drunk and making passes
At girls who wear plastic rimmed glasses

Honestly, do you find joy in this
Drinking because people are poisonous

Need a girl with retro T
And a tight-white belt...

Fashion's more precious than soul
It remains when passion grows cold...
Track Name: Black Shirts + Pink Ties
Glass + plastic + chrome
Latte with extra foam
no regrets, french cigarettes
Remind me of home

Magazines on the racks
All the pavement is cracked
Black shirt, pink tie
Jack boots and white lies

Night falls, duty calls
The moon is a disco ball

Leather + rubber + steel
Chauffeur’s asleep at the wheel
Newspapers and skyscrapers
But nothing is real

Strike a deliberate pose
Dust the coke from your nose
Black light, white lies
Brown shirts and red eyes

Night falls, duty calls
The moon is a disco ball
Track Name: Trash
There’s a girl down the street
The kinda girl you wanna meet
Just down the street
20 feet
Twisted metal and concrete

Just down the street...

Sweat drips, summer heat
The vacant lot just down the street
Just down the street
20 feet
There’s a girl you wanna meet

Just down the street...

Car crash, bloody meat
Twisted metal and concrete
Just down the street
Dirty rats
Stray dogs
In the trash

Just down the street...

Broken fence, hard cash
100 tears in the trash
In the trash
Down the street
Stray dogs and rotten meat

Get in the trash

There’s a girl down the street
The kinda girl you wanna meet
Just down the street
20 feet
Twisted metal and concrete

Just down the street

Sweat drips, sumemr heat
The vacant lot just down the street
Just down the street
20 feet
There’s a girl you wanna meet

Just down the street
Get in the trash...
Track Name: For Nothing At All
To betray
Someone
Someone who put their trust in you
Someone
Who really believes in you
Is one of the worst things
Any one of us can do

But if you're going to do it
Do it for some kind of profit
Do for love
Do it money
Or at least do it for sex

Because when I betrayed you
I did it
I did it for absolutely for nothing
For absolutely for nothing
For nothing at all
Track Name: Slipping Away
Hope. Give. Love. Live. Feel. Kiss. Touch. Bliss. Fight. Hurt. Sigh. Work. Kiss. Cry. Laugh. Try.

Don't let go when you feel you are slipping
When you feel you are slipping away
